Monday Mischief: Pennywise & Clownfoolish

09 Oct

Hello Blog Friends – We found some very interesting things on our walk today that I want to tell you about.

We found a red balloon, which we learned means that there are clowns in the storm drains. We think that is just silly. The kids told us the clown’s name is “Pennywise.” We think Pennywise may just be clownfoolish. I think we will stay away from the storm drains for a while anyway. Mom says they are dangerous for dog paws and best to be avoided if something is going to grab you and pull you in.

Then we found an Eastern Box Turtle walking across the road. We wanted to play with it but Mommy said ‘No.’ She always says ‘No.’ These are common turtles in our area and best left alone unless they are in danger. Around here you have to be careful because the car in front of you may stop for what appears to be no reason and you will find it is to let the turtle cross the road. That makes me think of a joke: “Why did the turtle cross the road…. to get to the other side. ” Bark Out Loud, I am funny!!!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?  – Louise (aka Lulu Belle the comedian)

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

      Mom hates balloons. She has balloonaphobia since she’s little.

    One of my labs once picked a turtle up in her mouth when she was in the back yard. She came to me for help getting it out of her mouth. I almost had to take her to the vet!!!!! She thought it was at Ball I guess. The dog was fine, the turtle was fine and I needed a glass of wine to recover! We saw a turtle yesterday. I kept my lovely new lab pup away!!!
