I need to vent about a recent "What the @#$%" moment.
This past Sunday morning at 4:44AM my doorbell rang.

Immediately Lisa & I wake up & think something's wrong. All the classic Lifetime Channel moments are in place-a quiet moment, doorbell rings, dog barks, scared children, etc.
Of course I jump out of bed but there is nothing I can do since I can't walk... (no, people with prosthetics do not sleep with their legs on).... so it's up to Lisa.

She looks through the glass in the middle of the door. She sees a man, late teens/early twenties, bent over like a baseball player in "ready position." She's convinced this man is getting ready to bust in. She yells for me to call the cops.
Lisa then screams, "What do you want?!"
The man yells, "I found a dog. Is it yours or do you know who it belongs to?"
"OK. Sorry to bother you."

Turns out the guy was in that position because he was bent over holding the dog by his collar.
I look out the window & watch the man & the dog walk away. I hung up the phone.
While it's possible this guy was looking to do something criminal, I believe he was just a moron who rang someone's bell at 4:44 in the morning.

In this world of cell phones, why not just call the cops & let them handle the dog?
Why not take the dog home & throw him/her in your backyard until waking hours?
Thanks for scaring the shit out of my kids.
Thanks for scaring the shit out of my wife. She couldn't sleep the rest of the morning.

What would you have done if you found a dog in the middle of the night?
Would you knock on someone's door?


  1. I would wait until morning to see if it were one of the neighbors.
    Meantime, I would assume the pup is hungry and tired. I'd bring him home for the night.

  2. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post's to be exactly what I'm looking for.
    Would you offer guest writers to write content for you?
    I wouldn't mind producing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome site!

  3. At this time it seems like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

  6. Hello! I am about to start my own blog and was wondering if you know where the
    best place to buy a blog url is? I am not even sure if that's what its called? (I'm
    new to this) I'm referring to "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=2589326183749752511&postID=4346121435696503063". Exactly how do I go about getting one of these for the website I'm building?
