We wish we had a video to show you of today's klutz comedy but there was no witness with a camera available. In fact, there were no witnesses except us and we didn't have a cell phone to dial 911. But if we had a photo, we could be rich. We could buy up a gross of promotional items with Jan's embarrassing moment photo on them and sell them at public events.
But we want you to know, on our solemn word, that we had nothing to do with what happened! The snow is melting, the sidewalks are clear except for isolated spots here and there, and we finally convinced Jan to stick her nose out the door for the first time since Sunday. We were just walking along at our usual pace minding our own business - and behaving! - when Jan suddenly went flying and crashed onto the sidewalk. Sam thought she was lying there because she wanted to play. (Merci points to head and makes circular motions with paw.)
We discussed our financial options at length and thought about buying a custom notepad to carry on our walks so we can draw stick pictures of interesting events such as this one for sale. However, we don't have any pockets and even though she keeps suggesting we get a job to earn some money, we don't think Jan would agree to let us use her pockets.
Note from Jan: The dogs honestly didn't have anything to do with the accident today.We all like a brisk walk when it's cold, so when the toe of my shoe rammed a broken, raised part of the sidewalk, my legs stopped going forward but my body didn't and I crash landed really hard on the cement. Even with several layers of clothes and a heavy coat, it felt like being hit with a cement truck.
Buddy: Sam, Jan has the backpack that was too big for me but if you start wearing it on our walks, we can carry an actual camera and take our own photos. And the next time - cause you know there will be a next time - Jan forgets to pick up her feet, we can take photographs before she comes to ... uh, we mean, before she can get back up, and then we'll have
Our neighbors in Pike County, Georgia have no animal control and no shelter. Friends of Pike County Animals (FPCA) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization (currently seeking 501 (c) 3 status) We hope you can spare a minute - daily until January 31 - to vote for FPCA for the Pepsi $50,000 grant.
You can vote for them at Create an animal adoption & education center in rural Pike County, GA.
And please pass this on and ask your friends to vote. We all know how important it is that any community's animals have an advocate. They are not a well-known organization with lots of followers so they will need your help to win.
We need to let you know the story is true and the links are sponsored.
