Kennel in the morning, kennel in the evening, kennel at leaving time. When the kennel's in the spare room, you can get kenneled any time!

(Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at dinner time. When pizza's on a bagel, you can eat pizza any time!)

I love that, and I don't have a dog!  ;D

Lol! My mother had a bath time song for her dog. When she sang it, the dog would walk towards the bathroom as though it were the gallows, while trying to sneak off into any empty corner along the way. My mother would march behind him, shooing him back on track whenever he tried. The song was based on Snow White's dwarves' work song (hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to bathe we go!). Have you ever seen a funeral procession to that tune? The dog thought it in terrible taste (everyone else laughed themselves silly at the sight).

Hahahahaha! Now I know which song I'm going to sing next bath time!

All these songs are cracking me up!  Might have to remember that one the next time the cats have a vet appointment.   I don't imagine they'll be anymore amused than your mother's dog, Lady Disdain.

As it is, we have to hunt down one of our cats to get her into the carrier.  Bailey and Sherlock are easy.

I always sing "I’m on a walk" ("I’m on a boat" by Lonely Island—warning, NSFW lyrics) when we take the dog for a walk because he gets soooooo excited to go, and then just gets totally in the zone once we’re walking. Neither he nor my SO find it nearly as amusing as I do.

I know that the events in Boston are ABSOLUTELY nothing to laugh at but something this morning did make me smile a little.

Since early in the morning the city has been under lockdown.  People were told to not leave their homes and to lock their doors.  Businesses were instructed not to open.  The public transit system was shut down. 

However, a doughnut shop near the police command area was allowed to open. 

I don't know what it's like in other countries but, in the US, police officers, doughnuts and coffee are as close as the Three Musketeers.

Well, you do have to find amusement even in the worst of times, otherwise you'll go nuts.  On that note, my father has been harassing me since they released the information on the vehicle they are looking for.  Other than the fact that my car is tagged in a different state, they've described my car.  I drive the same make, model and color, and the actual digits on the tag number are only off by a little bit (one number and one letter are different, otherwise they're the same).

Why is your father harassing you?  He doesn't suspect you are the other brother, does he? ???

If I had your car, I would keep it parked in the garage until they find the other bomber.  I would be afraid that the police/FBI would apprehend me because the car description is so similar.

I frequently sing to the parrot while getting her dinner. The song?

"Feed the biiiird. Let her know it's dinnertime."

She loves it and tends to dance along.

Harassing as in teasing.  Sorry for the confusion.  It's all light hearted, but, with the way people can panic, I'm leaning towards not driving it for a day or two.  Simple logic would indicate that this is obviously not my car (like the fact that it's impossible to drive from Boston to Miami in this sort of a time frame), but people don't necessarily behave logically.

That is pretty funny.  One fbook friend joked that the news channel she was watching seemed to be getting their info about Boston from the 80's tv show Cheers.  "Still no word on how Cliff's date went."

I am a rabbit owner, and I sing.



When I binky yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the bun who binkies next to you
When I jump up yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the bun who jumps along with you

But I would hop 500 miles
And I would hop 500 more
Just to be the bun who hopped 1000 miles
To flop down at your door

Bunny bun bun! Bunny bun bun!
Bun bun bun bun bun bun bun bun bun bun!

Things not to laugh at: When you see your mother is eating while not watching the cat, and the cat manages to leap up on her lap and not only steal a french fry but knock one down for the dog too... bad cat.... LOL

We are Muse fans in our house and in the evenings my cat gets serenaded for dinner:

(To the tune of Madness)

Nummy-nummy-nummy-nummy
NOM-NOM-NOM
Nummy-nummy-nummy-nummy
NOM-NOM-NOM


I, I can't get these nommies out of my mind ...
And some kind of huuuuungry has started to evolve
(Nummy-nummy-nummy-nummy
NOM-NOM-NOM)


And when I look back, at all those tasty noms we've haaa-ad
It's like some kind of nommies are taking control
(Nummy-nummy-nummy-nummy
NOM-NOM-NOM)


But now I have finally seen the can
And I'm not expecting you to care
Just feed me ....

A bit of artistic liberties taken and with much apologies to Muse.   8)

We sang to new foster cat Tangerine, aka Haydn:

WHERE-oH?
WHERE-er-er-oh?
Kitty's hidin' and he won't come out.
WHERE-oH?
WHERE-er-er-oh?
Kitty's hidin' and he won't come out.

I cannot find the kitty cat
(Kitty's hidin' and he won't come out.)
Got no inkling where he's at.
