Honey, I Shot the Dog

If you already have children, there is no excuse to give an annoying toy to another family as a gift. If you do you are either an airhead or an asshole.

The following was a going-away gift to LittleBird from a sweet family in OldTown. The mom was a bit of an airhead, so I forgive her the transgression. However, LittleBird found the puppy again this afternoon in the playroom.

It may end up out of its misery very, very soon.

oh dear god. that is the tackiest thing i've ever seen. it looks like it's in the same family as those fish that mount on the wall and sing.

Package that thing up and send it back to your friend.

If you don't want to hurt her feelings, send it to me. I'll dispose of it for you.

I think I'd rather have a LIVE animal than one of those fuckers.

My fucktard sister in law gave me one of those singing fish. Yes. To me. And it wasn't a joke. I have no idea how she and my husband share the same genes.

Yeah, puppy should have been left at the OldTown house so that new owners could enjoy it! :-)

That's some dancing!

I've been in noisy toy hell for the last week or so. The worst offenders are stowed away on top of the refrigerator out of reach. I feel like I've had a headache since we got to Sweden...

If you don't put that puppy out of it's misery, I might have to. I think our Bulldog would eat it and I think I would let her.

@BetseyBooms: Isn't it wretched?

@RandomMommy: I was horrified when she opened it. It was around Valentine's day, so I know that was why her daughter picked it out for us. But still.

@Buddha_Girl: I cannot believe someone actually gave you one of those fish. You have got to burn it and then post the video to your blog.

@CMGD: That would have been a good idea except for the fact that LittleBird was enamored by the damned thing.

@CiF: The top of the fridge is a good idea. I don't even think I could FreeCycle this baby.

@BurghBaby'sMom: Ha! That would be hilarious, but I'd be afraid it might hurt your pup.

My parents gave my daughter a little duck that dances and sings "I'm Coming Out..."

I know, the comedy works on so many levels.

But after like the millionth time, I'm singing "I'm THROWIN' OUT!!"

Love your blog too...and btw, I read your 100 Things. You're like a soul sister (I have that same dream about college and the test, even after all these years!) and just wanted to tell you "I came, I saw, I conquered." Julius Caesar said it.

That's a pretty high bar you've set, I just barely cleared it...I'm actually feeling a little puffed up! LOL!

Countess NATUI - I think it's that time.

I think it's that time to sit down with LittleBird and tell her the grim realities of puppy mills, and how this puppy is a product of a said mill, and has to go be released into the wild of the Happy Government Protected Puppy Farm.

Bye bye, you seizuring, top-tapping, Paul Anka abomination!

my SIL gave Alex a frog piano - I was all "you gave him a noisy toy"? (she has two boys) she said "as long as you can hear the toy you know where they are." hm.

Tigerlilly said...

HA!! You can burry it over here with Elmo the talking and dancing Bird...

Grab your husbands pedometer and join the challenge!! Just keep me up to date at least once a week as to how far you have walked!!

OH!! And the coffee pic was too funny. I think thats pretty much what coffee does to my hair too!! LOL

ROFLMAO Sorry, HAD to laugh!

See, my dear, dear hubby has given me two of those singing thingies. One is a lion, that sings "Wild Thing" by The Troggs, and then a little "devil" that sings Elvis Presley's "hunka hunka burnin love". Both for Valentine's Day. I actually love them very much (and him too, of course) ... BUT ... About 4 years ago, I had the wild idea of teaching my nephew (who was then 9 months old) how to turn them on. These things have been played, what seems endlessly back to back for what seems like the last FOUR years straight. The batteries, STILL have not died! Now, my 3 yr old niece has taken over the chore of playing them over and over and over.

Oh, and I have that exact same stroller! We actually got her two of them for Christmas. One for at home, and one for when she's here at Am Am's (Auntie M's)
