I Submit the Next “Is It Dead?” (It Isn’t)

Animals, they crack me up and constantly entertain me. Of course, I’m easily entertained, so it’s not that hard. I submit this pet store “Is It Dead?”

We witnessed this during one of my daughter’s come-look-at-this-hamster-he’s-so-cute-can-we-get-him-I-promise-to-take-good-care-of-him phase. I forget if it was before or after our neighbor gave us two dwarf hamsters that she couldn’t take to college (they wouldn’t let her have them in the dorm).

Anytime another hamster went up to this guy (see above) he would flip over onto his back and play dead quicker than you could say “what”. He would also start squeaking. When the other hamsters moved on, he would jump up and go about his business. He wasn’t dead, he was just an expert at playing one.

My next submission comes from this scenario: I slept on the couch because I stayed up late and didn’t want to wake up my husband who gets up so early, it’s still dark out. In the morning, I woke up, opened my eyes (without my glasses on) to this a few inches from my face. I screamed.

Then I realized it was our doggie and I had myself a good laugh. Good one. You got me. I owe you one doggie.

In case you didn’t get a good look:

 

We bought her a HUGE round bed. Large enough for a full-grown adult to curl up on. She can’t manage to stay on it.

It’s not just me. My mom started wondering too. She sent me this picture wondering Is It Dead?

Now that bed is for the 10-pound dog. I understand why she might not fit. I thought it was funny until my Mom sent me this one:

That got me. I’m dead. I’m also impressed. It takes a special kind of talent to entertain people when you’re asleep.

If you like this blog, I made a T-Shirt to go with it. The “Is it dead? (It’s not!)” T-Shirt is now available! Or the “Is it dead or just giving up?”
