Call Out and Smile

Merci, Sam, Buddy
Sam:  Hey, the ever-obedient and good-looking trio is back.  Um, that's us, in case you think we're referring to some other furries. 

Merci:  Sam, they know that.  Tell them what we have planned for today.

Buddy:  No, let me tell everyone.  We have a video of dogs doing what we're told dogs do best; however, we're not sure what that is in these scenes but in real life dogs do eating best.

Sam:  Yes, eating.  And sleeping.  And eating.  Oh, I already said that.  But that's okay.  I can make room for seconds. 

Merci:  Anyway, enjoy our Sunday Smile video.  And then we have some exciting news for those of you who like to write.  And since you're bloggers, we figure you do.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Sam:  That first scene used a stunt double, didn't it?  We can' imagine "walking" down the pavement on our back but this pooch doesn't seem to mind.  Doesn't even protest.

Buddy:  We're going to turn you over to Miss Kathy now and she's going to tell you about a special story call out.

Seeking stories for: Not Your Mother’s Book . . . On Pets

As you can see, most anything goes. The story must be true, humorous, wacky or downright amazing! Please, no death or dying stories…

From chirps to quacks to cock-a-doodle-doo
Potbellied pigs and bunny rabbits, too
Goats or monkeys and cows that moo
Rats and lizards— even snakes will do!
