Today’s Fun Friday Challenge comes from Mr. CL — did your pet get you through your break up? Are you bestowing your love on rescue kittens instead of fuckwits now? Did you buy a puppy? (Can I see pictures?) Tell CN your furry friend stories!
Mr. CL was fondly remembering his departed Schnauzer, Casper. (A dog so spoiled, he lived 15 years on bacon grease and raw hot dogs.)
He got Casper in the divorce, which if you met Casper, you might understand why he wouldn’t be an ex’s first pick draft choice.
Casper enjoyed 3 a.m. barking at possums, digging under fences for frequent escapes, and destroying shrubbery if you didn’t throw the frisbee for him. (“Did the Shepherd catch MY frisbee? Shame if something happened to this rose bush…”)
In short, he was irascible, imperious, and high-maintenance. But Mr. CL credited Casper with getting him through his divorce. That dog loved him.
And hey, no time to mope — POSSUM!!!
Is there a Casper in your life? Bring the warm and fuzzy pet stories today!
TGIF and RIP, Casper, wherever you are. (Tearing up God’s landscaping…)
