I want to be reincarnated as a puppy……

Puppies have a great life. They don't have to wear clothes, they get regular meals, they get taken for walks in the great out of doors and best of all they can flop down any old where, roll over and people will just naturally reach out to pet them and rub their tummies.

Just a heads up?

If you try that in the grocery store……it does draw quite a crowd…… but then the police come and escort you from the building.

Ahh, a puppy's life...

Which reminds me, I played with such a cute Labrador puppy ( 4 weeks old) two weeks ago while I was waiting with my cats at the vet to get their shots :D

Laurita said...

The mental image of that last paragraph is absolutely priceless. Love your matter-of-fact tone with this advice.

Karen, it's so good to see you back. :)

Karen from Mentor said...

Did your cats then shun you because you dared to notice a d o g ?

Cats can be like that.

Dogs have owners, cats have servants. And wo unto those who don't understand the hiearchy.

hmmmm....maybe being a cat wouldn't be so bad either.

estrella05azul said...

Definitely wouldn't ;)

(Oh, and when we're at the vet... the cats are okay with anything as long as they can stay in their basket undisturbed :P)

Karen from Mentor said...

Hey Laurita, welcome back to you too! I missed you while you were on vacation.

You snuck in there while I was answering Estrella.

This whole idea should go up for public debate. I'm thinking we should institute public hugging stations and public petting stations and..... oh wait a minute, I see some bumps in the road on the path I'm traveling down....

I'll get back to you.

:0)

Karen from Mentor said...

"stay in their basket undisturbed" ...laughing...I just got a really interesting slew of story ideas from that sentence fragment Estrella.

I think I may have had a little too much sugar in my tea this morning. Ideas are bouncing about in my brain this morning like excited puppies.

Which actually kinda works with the post.

estrella05azul said...

Thought you might, I had a few ideas myself.
My work here is done then ;)
Off to paint some more crafts, see you later, honey!

It's sooo good to have you back!

ganymeder said...

I'm left wondering if that last paragraph was the voice of experience talking...

Good to have you back! You were missed!

Left said...

I have mixed feelings about puppies. They're cute, but they can tear up your socks if you aren't careful!
Great flash, though.

Karen from Mentor said...

@ ganymeder Thanks, it's nice to be back Cathy. And as far as the voice of experience...um....unless some photos surface....we're going to say that this anecdote um I mean story was just a flight of fancy. Yeah. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

And see...Left thought that the story was flash. But um Left is brand new to Miscellaneous Yammering ...it takes time to be able to sift through these things and ferret out the kernels of truth...

*sigh*

I'm really going to miss shopping at Giant Eagle

judy said...

Me too, me too! Puppy reincarnation!

Karen from Mentor said...

Judy, why do I have no trouble at all picturing you jumping up and down like a Jack Russell Terrier while shouting that so enthusiastically?

[you make me grin and grin my sweet j]

KjM said...

There are some who suggest I *have* been reincarnated - as a cat (and probably not as a cute, cuddly kitten either).

A puppy would be cute, and the whole tummy-scratching thing is, y'know, um... well, OK then...isn't it nice weather we're having today?

I'm sure I had a point to this comment, but it got kinda lost in all the...

Karen from Mentor said...

Laughing uproariously on this end Kevin.

I know...I should just put an ad in the paper..."Wanted man to rub my tummy".....oh man...that couldn't go wrong in any way shape or form now could it? ....

Erin Cole said...

Our puppy is now six months old and I'd give anything to have her life for a day - just crazy fun. You bring up a good point...as a society, it might be healthy to express our energy as such, kind of like running amok, but without the knives.

Karen from Mentor said...

Holy cow Erin, How GREAT a book title is that?

"Running amok, but without the knives"

BEST title ever.

You guys are just delighting the hell out of me today.

Cat Connor said...

Hi de hi, bouncing one!
Glad you're back! Of course I probably missed the grand entrance... have been all over the place like a mad woman's knitting this week.
I feel I shall settle for the weekend. It's Thursday afternoon so that seems promising. :D

There are puppies next door (yes at Kane's) no I haven't seen them. I am immune to puppies charms these days. All I see are tiny little poop machines that chew and eat. :-)

J. M. Strother said...

The people at the store objected? How very odd.

No pains, no gains...................................................................

Bryan Borland said...

What kind of puppy would I be, Karen?

Karen from Mentor said...

Bryan I could see you reincarnating as a very soulful, extremely lovable puppy with floppy ears and big big feet. It goes without saying that you would be a petting whore and a babe of either sex magnet.

So basically except for the chin dimple?????

lovely to see you my sweet!

Karen from Mentor said...

@ 雅馨 ,
Exactly. You never know til you try. And hey, at least the cops were cute.
:0)

Karen from Mentor said...

@ Jon,
I KNOW! You would think that could expand their customer service horizons a little bit. Silly managers, not keeping up with the needs of the general public.

Karen from Mentor said...

Cat....giggling...I didn't know whether to giggle more at "mad woman's knitting" or "poop machines" .... so I've been dividing my time.

In my experience rabbits have the monopoly on the second thing. And I've never seen the first thing, but if you know a mad knitter, maybe she can make me some tentacle warmers before winter. [see Monday's post]

Kane with new puppies. That just seems like a crime against nature. No man should be given that sort of power over women.
