Ask About Our Duck Feet


Of course I asked. I mean, look at that sign!

There I was picking up Houdini  Iko after she tortured every person at the dog groomer  her bath today, and this sign taunted me from the counter.

Me: Laura, I’m asking about your bag of 20 duck feet. Are they real?

Laura: Yes they are.

Me: Ok, that is more than I needed to know about them.

Then I spent the rest of the day picturing Iko with 20 duck feet in her mouth at one time because she jams as many items in there as she possibly can. Someone please tell me why giving your dog duck feet (20 or any number for that matter) is desirable.

And what do they do with the rest of the duck?

UPDATE: alas, Mashable has an answer to all those footless ducks

Stinky Dog


Phone rings.

Me: (as I look at the caller ID and see it is my dog groomer) No Way! Laura? Does my dog smell that bad that you are actually calling me?

Laura: Seriously, what is going on with you? The damn dog has not been here since DECEMBER!

Me: Well, actually it is really not THAT bad, I had her groomed at the vet when she went through her diabetic episode back in… oy January.

Laura: Well, ok, that is still really bad.

Me: Have the neighbors been calling you to complain?

Laura: No, but you have to get that dog in here for a bath.

Me: Ok, book her. Hmmm… do you think I need to wash her bed now?
