You Can't Make This Stuff Up

I took Bison, our almost 10-year-old pug, to the vet today. He's overweight, as always, we need to brush his teeth more and cut his nails, as always. The new development today was that he had a fatty tumor on his side that had to be tested. Thankfully, it was just that, a benign fatty tumor, that causes no problems and needs no treatment. His heartworm test also came back negative. Good deal. Prevention works.

So we head home. Bison is riding in the floor of the passenger's side. I drive into the garage, as always, hop out and toss my keys in the seat, as always, and as I'm walking around the front of the car, I hear this all-too familiar "CLICK." I freeze, then look at Bison. He had hopped up into the seat and put his paws up on the door and, you guessed it, locked the door.

You've got to be kidding me. "I'm sorry, I can't come pick up my kids from preschool. My dog locked my keys in my car." Who's going to believe that?!

Try as I may, I could not get Bison to UNlock the door. He was, however, successful at locking the door a second time. Amazing.

I called John, who is riding in a car full of the church office staff, as today is staff lunch day. They were finishing up lunch and graciously agreed to drive down to Flint to rescue Bison and enable me to drive back into town to get my kids, which I will do in about 20 minutes. The looks on their faces as I raised that garage door was priceless. Big grins, big waves. I was mortified. And poor Bison couldn't figure out why I was just now letting him out of the car!

Oh, Bison ...

Ha ha! Only you, Kim! I love that you let us all sneak a peak into the happenings of your life! So glad everything worked out. And so glad it wasn't one of those 110 degree days in Texas like a few weeks ago.

Oh my! I can just see you trying to get Bison to unlock the door. I can also just see his little face looking like he understands every word you were saying!

So glad it all turned out well and that you were able to provide a little entertainment for the office staff!

Cute story. I can just imagine Bison's cute face and tongue hanging out. I can just imagine your look of surprise and "Oh, well!" face when you were rescued.

That is so not funny but really is hilarious! :) I can so see that happening to me & KK!! Glad you got it worked out as well and quickly as you did & that Bison's tumor shouldn't be an issue! KK has one on her chest they said the same thing about. Very weird!

Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

The International Whistlers Convention is held on the campus of Louisburg College.

If you have purchased a used option, you'll most likely want to call in tractor services so that you can get help fixing any issues that might be lingering within the machine. I can almost hear the lilt of their voices in the soft warm breeze, "Well done, boys.
