Amazon is at it again

I was just browsing Amazon, as I do occasionally when I don’t really feel like being productive. As usual, I came across another useful gem.

Owner of little pug looks so proud of herself here. She clearly has no idea what she is in for.

May may I present to you the Puff-N- Fluff dog dryer. This thing just might be old news, but I don’t have cable TV (and I like it that way!), so it’s new to me.

I can’t say for sure, but I think this is just an overrated balloon with leg slots that you stick your dog inside of. Like a space suit.

After you have magically coaxed your pup, who is likely already agitated and wet following a bath, you stick your hairdryer in there. Presumably the idea here is to inflate the suit with warm air, providing your beloved doggo with a nice sort of hair salon drying experience.

I am not smiling because you bathed me and stuck me in a balloon space suit thingy. I plotting your demise, and smiling at the thought of your horrible, feces-covered death.

Now, I’m not sure about your dog, but I can tell you that all three of mine would be terrified of this contraption. I have enough trouble just getting them to sit still for something like a basic brushing or nail trimming. I can’t even fathom trying to stick them in a balloon suit and then turn on a hair dryer. They would have a conniption fit.

As a matter of fact, I bet you if I was to give them a bath and then stick them in this thing, they would poop all over themselves whilst running all throughout the house, and we’d be back worse than we started.

I have to say that I’m grateful to the guy who comes up with these ideas. They definitely provide me with an endless source of entertainment.

I may look harmless, but I’m actually getting ready to poop everywhere. And then I will chew your face and ankles clean off.

Feel like this is a thing you’ve got to have? You can buy one here. Please, if you do decide to invest in one of these, send me photos of the aftermath.


We are the Bumpus Household

A Christmas Story is one of my favorite films.

As we were watching it this evening, I came to the conclusion that we are the Bumpuses.

You know who I’m talking about, right?

They’re the unseen family who lives next door to Ralphie’s family in A Christmas Story. They’re the ones with all of the hounds who are constantly barking and in the way.

Incidentally, did you know that the Bumpus Hounds have their very own Facebook page? They do! How cool is that?!

Well, we have three dogs. Two are hounds. Sure, they aren’t bloodhounds, but they are hounds nonetheless.

Okie regularly makes the same face as the dog on the left of this photo.

We always have some kind of ruckus around here. One of them is always either whining, barking, being in the way, or snoring.

Fun fact: He was alternating between snoring and whining the very second I took this photo.

I couldn’t help but think about how we really ought to have that hound theme music with the bass harmonica playing in the background at our house constantly. I holler their names enough, I might as well be yelling, “BUMPUSES!”.

Here we have Avery cleverly hiding from the cat.

It’s quite the chaotic existence, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I bet the Bumpuses were one happy bunch of folks.

Mittens was less than thrilled by my use of the flash. Also, she was snoring.

Anyway, sometimes life can be chaotic and loud and messy. But if you can manage to harness your inner Bumpus, you’re sure to get through it all right.
