Need A Laugh? True Story!

So Mumsie is driving down the road yesterday...she sees a man kneeling by the side of the road holding a dog who looked like this by the collar...and had his cell phone out...
Fearing he had hit the poor guy, Mumsie stops...
Mumsie: Do you need some help?
Man: I just found this guy by the road...'fraid he was gonna get hit...called the first number on his collar answer. (He then lets the dog runs to Mumsie who picks him up. Dog begins to shed rapidly.)
Man: I have a meeting and I'm late...can you deal with this?
Mumsie: Ah...sure. Do you know how to stop this shedding?
Mumsie calls second number...stoopid lady answers.
Stoopid Lady: Hellooooooooooo....!
Mumsie: This is Mumsie. Do you have a terrier named "Radar?" Who sheds?
Stoopid Lady: Yes!!!
Mumsie: Well, Radar is in my car sitting in my lap. (Mumsie is feeding him a few chips and giving him sips of her coveted Coke Zero to insure friendliness...)
Stoopid Lady: No he's not...he's in the back of my car running errands with me!
Mumsie: Um..well, he's here on my lap eating Lay's Potato Chips.
A loud scream....
Expletive, HE MUSTA JUMPED OUTTA MY expletive CAR WINDOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mumsie: Now calm down...he's right here on my lap shedding all over my clean jeans and eating potato chips.
Stoopid Lady: (after getting whereabouts) I'll be right there!!!
Stoopid Lady's car comes screeching to a halt.
Stoopid Lady: I bet you're wondering how I thought I was driving around with my dog in the back seat when he had jumped out the window?
Mumsie: No, I never gave it a second thought. Do you know your dog sheds?
Stoopid Lady: Yes, he does.
Both Mumsie and Stoopid Lady drive on their respective way after Radar is exchanged to proper car.
Mumsie proceeds to Bruvver's house to walk little Baylee where she manages to set off the burglar alarm. Bruvver asked her to walk Baylee and left the alarm on.
And it's all true...what part of a JRT doesn't jump?? Doesn't this sound like something that would happen to the Mango Mama???

Fabulously written and hilarious. I'll share: Similar situation, Mommy's the Stooopid lady. Nice lady calls to tell us our Rosie (chocolate lab love of M's life) has been hit by a car. Stoopid M: No she's not!.... Long story short, the Nice lady was correct. An 8foot concrete fence had crumbled giving our Rosie access to the streets. This was the funny part. M still laughs that she was arguing with that kind person.

Very cute story - and Radar is really adorable. Glad it all worked out in the end. Guess Mumsie wouldn't do well here with all the shedding we do:(

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you!

I'm sure Gussie will have something to paw about a Jack/Jill Russell Terror!

I think we heard those shrieks from here -

Oh wait, that was just Gillie -

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Me thinks Mumsie needs to add some adult beverage to the Coke Zero!

After me got past the shedding and the Lays Potato know I'm starving. AND to make it worse, I'm having me teeth cleaned and cannot eat or drink after 10pm.

Anywoo, this TOTALLY sounds like something that the Mango man would have encountered!!!! Do ya think he would have been that patient with a Jack Russell Terrier?

Irish Love and Kisses,

Inky and Molly said...

Yep, we laughed, although we're sure Mumsie wasn't laughing at the time...

Agatha and Archie said...

Welllllll we were first and then PL2's puter weireded out and then it locked itself and she couldn't get back in and then she had to shut it off and now WE ARE NOT FIRST ANYMORE(this is really the story of our lives) The most curious thing about that whole story is that we really did not know that JRT's liked chips and coke zero..Love A+A

Dearest Beast -

Gillies getting his teeth khleaned so he khan get all the PURPLE and GREEN smoothie goo evidence removed -

Of khourse I'm helping the poor darlin' - she's from my side of the state - I mean woo were born on the good side but woo moved to the dark end -



Gus said...

OMD! MUMSIE...did you not know that cute little JRTs shed like cherry trees? Or something. We just mark that up to another of Teka Toy's sins around here.

Muzzer wants to know if Coke Zero has that stuff that zips you up as you sip it down? If so, it might even be worse than the time Teka drank muzzer's tea!

Poor Mumsie..don't worry about the alarm. Dad sets ours off all the time. He is not so much good at 5:30 ayem.

Just talke to the nice alarm folks - they are our friends around here.


ScrapsofMe said...

Mumsie was very nice! What a stoopid jerk guy to just run off like that and leave the pup.

Happy St. Patty's day!


Joe Stains said...

omdog we are giggling like crazy. Poor Radar, his owner sounds like a DOOFUS.

BUT man he got Lays potato chips????? I think I need to change my plans on how to score more chips!

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Yummy chips. Wow, I hope Radar is happy now.

doyle and mollie said...

Mama is still laughing from when Mumsie told her about Radar on the phone, hehehehehe! That poor dog, how could his Mama NOT know that he wasn't in the car with her? We bet he jumps all over in the vehicle.
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
Butchy - still dreaming about my sis-pup, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby & Hootie-what is a sis-pup??? will it smell like catnip?

Dennis the Vizsla said...

I'm wondering where she thought you got her number, the name of the dog, and the fact that he sheds, when Radar was supposedly safely tucked away in the car ...

Kisses and hugs

Maggie and Mitch said...

OMG, this could only happen to Mumsie! We're glad Radar is safe and back with his stoopid lady!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Mango said...

Good thing mumsie came to the rescue. Stupid PeeWee jumped out once when momma had the top of the tailgate open, but I would never be so foolish. Sheesh.


Bobby said...

Well thank heaven it all got sorted and little Radar was okay. Although still shedding. Gave us a laugh.

MAX said...

A wonderful piece of writing...I was writhing in laughter...not something that happens often nowadays! Thank you for brightening up my day and for rescuing that little pup.Don't you know by now that all dogs leave their mark ?(Although some prefer to shed!)
Lotsalicks for a fabulous post!!!

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

One of those days when you have to ask yourself what may happen next.

Well done Mumsie for rescuing Radar.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

wow--i hope she keeps a better eye on radar

Fred said...

BOL!!! That is an awesome story! Glad Radar is A-OK.

Pearl said...

Oh Mumsie! These are my favorite stories!

My momma is JUST the same! Things always happen to her that are absurd.

I hope Radar stays put from now on!

PS I shed a lot, Mumsie. Will you still love me?! :(

* sniff sniff *

Koobuss said...

Sounds like a typical day for Mumsie. She sure has an interesting life.

And what dog, terrier or otherwise, would not want to live with Mumsie, Dadsie, Bruvver, Scruffy, Lacie, and BabyStan? There's a lot of fun in that house. You can't blame Radar. He tried.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

erin said...

Oh My Dog! What a story! Why was that stoopid lady driving around with the windows open wide enough for her dog to jump out? And what with the dude running away? Our mom never opens our windows more than a couple of inches. If we saw a squirrel or something, we'd totally jump out of a moving vehicle! Without even a second thought. We're glad your mumsie was there to save Radar!

TwoSpecialWires said...

That jumpy JRT AND his (no good, irresponsible, flaky, otherwise absorbed) moma ought to be really glad you came along at the time that you did. We're glad you can laugh about it now. And make us laugh along with you. (Did you gather the furs that he shed? Moma's always asking) But REALLY! She shoulda at least bought ya a Coke Zero and new bag of chips and paid for your dry cleaning bill. But no! She didn't even call ya back to say thanks. Some people.

Laughing. And shaking our heads.
Jake and Fergs xxoo

Huskee and Hershey said...

Thank doG your mom stepped in and reunited the dog with Stoopid Lady.
Shedding is not good.. our mom hates shedding season (which had recently started) in our house..

Eric said...

Haaa!!! Well done Mumsie. You must of made Radars day tho he probably would of liked a full fat Coke and a whole bag of crisps.And to get to come home with you instead of the flaky lady. Did it make you wig wag Mumsie that you have 3 non shedding doggies?

Wiry love Eric xx

Abby said...

My Mom is rolling on the floor...
