BUDDY: Here's a picture of me so you don't forget what I look like. We canines are in the doghouse for something we didn't do and Jan just might forget to let us out for a while so we can post.
CYNDI: Of course the dogs didn't do it. *wink, wink* While they were at dinner, someone must have opened the front door and -
MERCI: A tidal wave swept through here. *nods head* Seriously, it was a complete surprise. Especially to Jan.
SAM: She's had a hard week trying to keep up with everything while her ankle pain and swelling spread till she can barely stand on either foot and hobble.
MICAH: She can't even sit at the computer very long now, so she was going to feed us, heat some leftovers and go to bed early. And stay there.
RUSTY: But you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and Jan. She fed us and walked into the living room ... and screamed. The room was under water.
MARCUS: Well, not quite under water, but there was water from one corner of the room clear across to the computer desk at the other end.
PERCY: We had to cover our ears while Jan yelled words on the Do-Not-Use List and wobbled around the house digging out towels and t-shirt rags to try to stop the flood and soak up some water in the carpet.
BUDDY: We have - or we had two huge stainless steel water bowls inside bigger plastic bowls to catch spillage. One set was in the living room. Has been for about ten years.
MERCI: Both of those bowls were on their side about 3 feet away from where they were supposed to be. Smack in the middle of the knee-high water.
SAM: It was not knee-high water. Don't exaggerate, Merci.
MERCI: How do you know, Sam? My knees are closer to the carpet than your knees.
CYNDI: It's hot and we've all been drinking a lot of water so Jan has been keeping the water bowls filled higher than she usually does.
RUSTY: Now we don't have one in the living room. And it's all ... um, it's all because of a freak act of nature. I mean, who could have guessed we could have a tidal wave in the middle of Georgia?
MARCUS: Somehow this has got to be Jan's fault. We furries are so good. We never cause problems.
PERCY: Marcus, your name is written all over this accident. Don't press your luck.
Note: Due to the tidal wave and Jan's health, there is no Mousebreath interview this week.
Friday is also time for the Pet Parade blog hop, hosted by by Rascal and Roscoe. It is co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).
