Whoopie cushion - by Bruce

I really love my volunteer work because I meet some really interesting people all over the State and adjoining States. Trying to qualify people to be able to adopt a German Shepherd dog is rewarding - especially when good adopters are found that will be good for the dog and not the other way around.

I am probably leaving them with a poor impression of myself as a volunteer though. Many times when I am on the telephone with them our dog Bozwell, will go over to the toy box and pull out this toy he got for Christmas that sounds like a whoopie cusion. He will come over and sit directly in front of me and give the noise maker a good work out. Folks at the other end think I have the worst bowel problems in existence.
Pretty hard to explain that situation to someone on the phone because they don't seem to believe me anyway. I have therefore stopped trying and they can think what they want. Women are just glad that I'm someone else's husband and men - who knows what they think but it certainly changes the tone of the conversation. Either way I have a real problem from laughing out loud when this happens. Who says dog's don't have a sense of humor... not me thats for sure.

Thanks for the "laugh out loud" moment to start my day Bruce. Leave it to our dogs to do the most unexpected things at the most inappropriate times!
