the other day, when you let the dogs out for their morning exercise
program, they had a meeting. A Labrador Retriever who was heading
the meeting was discussing ways to give you a present for your
birthday. He opened the meeting with a question, "does anyone
here, have a driving license, so a birthday card can be purchased
at Wal Mart?". The dogs attending the meeting had no idea
what the Lab was talking about.
then said to them, "can anyone here make a present for Jim,
such as an ashtray, a basket to hold extra water bowls, or anything
else as a birthday present?". The reply was, "we don't
have thumbs how can we make anything?".
Lab asked if they had anything they could do to show Jim how they
knew that it was his birthday and they had not forgetten it? No
one had any ideas. I did not want to seem like I was eavesdropping
but I felt sorry for the dogs because they couldn't figure out
what to do. I suggested to them that I would call Jim and wish
him a happy birthday, not only from me, but from all the dogs
in the kennel. I even suggested that they go into the mud and
they could then put a paw print on a card that I would purchase.
were elated with the idea. I purchased the card and everybody
signed their name (paw print) on it. When Jim had received the
card he was happy the dogs had not forgotten him on his birthday.
