Ma’am, Your Dogs Battery is Dead!

From the second those words came out of my mouth, a post was brewing in my head.  It  was just way too funny not to share. 
In the little town where I live even if you’re 5 miles apart, you’re neighbors.  We’re all friendly, it’s just how we roll! Well, I have two neighbors on my road most commonly referred to as “The Twins.”DD2Denise and Deanna
The day after I had the babies they came and visited me at the hospital and I offered to bring them up to see the babies.  Well, that’s a rule breaker in the NICU, only two people at each bedside and they couldn’t go in together because a parent or someone on the approved list had to go in with them.  Long story short, I broke the rules, brought them both in, Shame on Me! Well, I was drugged, to say the least, mildly sedated.  I had given birth to quads less than 24 hours ago, for everyone’s sanity and/or safety I was on a significant amount of medicine.  When asked by one of the babies nurses if they were my sisters (I’m assuming she thought multiples “ran in the family”) I said, no, they’re just my neighbors.  Yes, I admit it now, denied it then, but they are also my friends! So, since I referred to them as my neighbors it’s been a running joke.  I referred to them here and here in a jokingly manner as “my neighbors.”
Focus Sandra, Focus… Dog, battery… Focus!
Deanna has a cute little dog named Dixie Dog.bmp  Dixie has an underground fence and has this cool collar on her neck.comfort-fit-big-dog-trainer Well, when the batteries go dead, Dixie has free roam of the neighborhood.  Today was the second time I’ve found Dixie roaming around and when I called “my neighbor” I said, Excuse me, ma’am, your dogs battery is dead!
Okay, so maybe it was a little more funny to have been there, but it’s not too often you hear or speak the words, Ma’am, your dogs battery is dead.  Now I know the drill, I just get Dixie to jump in the van, we head to Deanna’s and I put her in her kennel and call Deanna to put batteries on her Wal-Mart list!

Have a Great Week!
