Buddy, straining at the leash: Hey, guys, look at this. We found a new friend.
Sam: What is it?
Merci: We saw him a couple of weeks ago -- or one of his relatives. Jan said he's a turtle.
Buddy: Oops. Guess we got a little too inquisitive. He's backing into his house.
Merci: His shell, Buddy. It's called a shell.
Buddy: But it's where he lives, so it's his house.
Sam: Well, I hope he's not looking to be adopted because we don't have any room at the Funny Farm for him.
Buddy: Don't worry. Just start walking fast and Jan will have to follow. She can't grab him if she's running.
Sam: Jan running? Do you think she knows how?
Merci: No, but let's teach her. Heeeeeeeey, not so fast, guys. I have short legs.
Remember, you can find Crystal on "Gotcha Day & Birfaday Pawty Contesty." He's #28. If you don't have a pet entered or another pet you'd rather vote for, we hope you will vote for Crystal. As Boris says, "Voting will runs until August 16, 2009 (ends midnighty EST). You can votes once a day so come backs every day! Tell you furends to come and votes fur u too! Crystal was doing well but 2 or 3 are really running ahead of him and the rest of the contestants.
Jan: And speaking of Crystal, there is something that needs to be clear, so I am going to repeat it. Crystal is a male kitty. He was not named by "Jan's selfish blunder," as one blogger commented yesterday. Nor is he going to be called Chrys or Chris. His name is Crystal. Look it up in the dictionary and the definition is not "it's a girl's name." If you can't get past it as a "name, consider that Crystal is also a last name. The word Crystal is not exclusively associated with female humans. I don't know whether the writer of that comment intended it to be offensive or funny, but it nearly had me in tears.
I enjoy reading your comments and it's okay to disagree with any opinions expressed on JFF but personal "attacks" are not welcome.
Now back to the post. I hope you will go vote for Crystal.
