Who We Are

Just Fooling Around!

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me - Ammy! Our weather has been just what the bipeds have been dreaming about for the past several months - sunny, 70-something degrees, that sort of thing. While we prefer the snow and cold, that seems to make Mom and Dad happy, so we're happy, too!

The other day, Mom took the boys and I on an extra afternoon walk to enjoy the weather. We had a wonderful time and she had the iPhone with her and took some pictures. Why don't I show you how it went?!

Here's a collage of us on our way out - and stopping to pose at the water tower:


Everything was pretty ho-hum until Mom took that picture of Zimmie in the bottom-left corner. He said, "Hey, Mom cut my nose off! Ha roo roo roo!!!" and we started giggling (well... maybe especially I started giggling...) and one thing led to another and we were fooling around and Zim asked,

"Hey, Ammy! Heard any good jokes lately?"

Actually, I just heard a bunch from Zim's friend
Mango the cat. (They go way back!) (OH! Not to be confused with Mango the Relentlessly Huge.)

"I have heard a few..."

So on the way home, I regaled them with some new (to me) jokes. Like I asked them if they had heard about the dogs named Timex and Rolex? They were watchdogs. Hee hee hee! They were really active and kept doing zoomies and were running in circles. I guess they were winding themselves up!

Since our temps are over 70, it was pretty hot for us - until we get used to it. See... take Dave, for example. He has really thick fur and in the winter he wears his winter coat. In the summer, he wears his coat and pants! Hee hee hee!

"Hee hee hee!"
"I didn't really get that last one, Am..."
"It's a joke, Dave. Coat and pants? And you're panting?!?"

Davy got it once Zimmie explained it to him! Then I thought I'd try one he could relate to a little better. "Hey Davy! Have you heard the one about the dog who boasted about running two miles to retrieve a stick? I think his story is a little far-fetched! Hee hee hee!"

"Oh... ha woo! Now that's a good one!"

And then there's the young Army dog who was forced to stand at attention a really, really, really long time. It ... made the pup tense!

"Hee hee hee!"
"Ha woo, Ammy! Those are some good jokes!"
"Ha roo roo roo - pup tents!!"

Then Zimmie couldn't stop laughing...

"Ha roo roo roo, oh, Ammy, you're killin' me!"

...so I left him with this zinger - "Just remember, Zimmie! To err is human... to make dog puns canine!" Hee hee hee!

"Oh....... AMMY!" [groannnnnn......]

Happy April Fools Day, everyreader! And thank you to Mango the kitty-cat for the wonderful jokes!



  1. Tee Hee Hee....You are too funny Ammy!!

  2. Good ones Ammy!

    Was Zimmie's snooter cur-tailed?

  3. Oh, Ammy you crack me up! Timex and Rolex! hahaha.
    Happy 1st of April! Send some of that 70degree weather our way!

  4. Okay Ammy, we found a good one too!
    (http://www.dogbreedinfo.com) It's kinda long, but SO worth it!

    How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

    Golden Retriever:
    The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

    Border Collie:
    Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

    You know I can't reach that dumb stupid lamp!

    Make me.

    Oh, me, me!!!! Pleeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I?

    Let the Border Collie do it. You can feed me while he's busy.

    Jack Russell Terrier:
    I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

    I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

    Cocker Spaniel:
    Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.

    Doberman Pinscher:
    While it's dark, I'm going to sleep on the couch.

    Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark......

    Mastiffs are NOT afraid of the dark.

    Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

    Irish Wolfhound:
    Can somebody else do it? I've got this hangover.....

    I see it, there it is, there it is, right there....

    It isn't moving. Who cares?

    Australian Shepherd:
    First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle....

    Old English Sheep Dog:
    Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb?

    German Shepard:
    Alright, everyone stop where you are! Who busted the light? I SAID, "STOP WHERE YOU ARE!!!"

    Hound Dog:

    Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So the question is: How long will it be before I can expect light?

  5. We had a feeling Ammy would be posting today. Good Jokes on April Fools. Coat and Pants - Ha Roo Roo Roo

  8. You guys are too funny!

  9. Dad's latest idea for the next two dog names is Levi and Lucky. They would be the Denim Dogs.


  10. But did you hear that Timex liked to run in a big field and pick up ticks. And then Rolex would groom Timex's coat to get them off, but Timex would keep going into the field and get more. You know . . .

    Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

  11. Woooos Ammy!.... (sighs)...the Queen of the Puns!
