Blowing His Own Horn
Buffy goes almost everywhere with my mom, except work and (unfortunately) restaurants. Mom and I were meeting for lunch about two weeks after she got him. I arrived first. I told the hostess that I was expecting my mother, and was seated. I heard a horn blow once ... then twice ... then again....
The hostess came back to our table and said, "Your mother and her dog are in the lobby." Buffy had been expressing his disapproval at being left in the car alone even for a short time.
On another occasion, I picked up Buffy, then went to pick up my mother at her church. Buffy must have thought that the sermon was too long, because after ten minutes, he blew the horn. I was horrified! I calmed him down, and he was sitting there like an angel, but then he decided to really lean on the horn!
The amazing part is that Buffy is all of 17 pounds and an Outback's horn is not easy to blow! But you-know-who has it figured out, all too well! This is a picture of him blowing the horn. We were watching from the window.
Dog Swallows RFID Chip, Starts Car
A woman in Surrey, England couldn't figure out why her car wouldn't start. An Automobile Association patrolman arrived on the scene and the two realized that the woman's dog had swallowed the car's immobilizer chip fob. The immobilizer contains an RFID chip that must be within a certain proximity of the steering column for the key to work. According to a BBC News report, the patrolman put the dog in the front seat, turned the key, and the car started right up.
How Many Dogs Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb?
Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll fix any wiring that's not up to code.
Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my toys in the dark!
Collie: Wait right there. I'll go get Gramps. Should I ask him to bring a 40-watt? An 80-watt?
Doberman Pinscher: As long as it's dark, I'm going to take a quick nap.
English Pointer: There's a new light bulb there. Right ... there.
German Shepherd: All right, nobody leaves until I find out who broke the light bulb.
Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're worried about a light bulb?
Jack Russell Terrier: Put that ladder away, I can reach it on my own.
Mastiff: I am not afraid of the dark. I am NOT afraid of the dark. For the love of God (sob), will somebody please change the light bulb?
Standard Poodle: I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it for me. By the time he's done rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.
Pug: Is this light bulb edible? Then forget it!
