I Might Have to...

...kill Dakota. I mean she's my sister and all, but there's only so much one boxer can take!

I spent the day babysitting my cousins, Dude and Trina, while the moms went to the Legacy Boxer Rescue adoption fair. It is hard work keeping those two in line.

So we finally get home, and I'm a little sick to my tummy. I'm trying my best to sleep, but the moms, in their misplaced guilt from leaving Dakota home alone, gave her a toy they bought for her at the pet fair. Guess what it is!

It looks like an innocent quiet tennis ball, right? Well, there are two main differences. One, Dakota can't seem to destroy it. Two, it squeaks. Not a normal cute squeak, but a shrill evil squeak. And she's been chewing on it non-stop for 30 minutes so far.

I'll spare you the sound, but imagine it as you watch this. Just imagine the sound as if Dakota was chewing on Fran Drescher's leg right after she took a hit of helium.

The next post will probably either be Dakota funeral footage or a picture of me holding a stick with a hanky tied to it thrown over my shoulder.

OH NO! Please don't post funeral footage or tell us you're leaving home! Have your mom get you ear plugs in a hurry, okay Cubby! Mitch has this stupid toy that he squeaks till we all want to murder him too and he seems to choose 7AM as that special time! UGH!

Love ya lots,
Maggie

I think Dakota was trying to get that NOISY ball out of her mouth and just couldn't. It kept rolling back. It's a wonder she didn't cut off her airway. I'm surprised you did not have to be a rescue dog and do the Heimlech on her. Or you could have yelled TREAT and I bet she would have dropped that EVIL toy in a sec.
Babysitting is a very tiring job. Those little ones are so busy. I agree that you needed a nap.

Wow - the funeral footage might be because Dakota CHOKED on the ball!

Killing her might be a mistake. You don't want CSI on your case. Just bark at her a bit.

You should take the tennis ball and hide it from Dakota! You'd get the fun of seeing him search for it, plus the enjoyment of peace and quiet!

Rockford said...

Oh my goodness Cubby! You do so well with Dakota and all. We are proud of your patience and understanding. I know you were trying lighten the scene with a little fran/helium joke (which was very funny by the way), but we know you wouldn't hurt Dakota and his endless squeakyness! STay well, and....calm! Love Mati and Rocky

I love those squeaky tennis balls! But mama won't buy them anymore because I eat the fuzz and end up with neon green poop.

By the way, this is Izzie speaking, not mama. Blogspot no longer lets her have two different pictures for both her blogs :(

Don't kill Dakota! I think you should just steal the Fran ball.

Did she finally stop playing with it? Sorry you had to put up with that.

Oh my gosh! Just imagining Fran Drescher on helium makes our fur stand up! If you need a place to hideout after you do the evil deed, just let us know. We'd be happy to help out!
