Good for a giggle

Dear Dogs

A pet-loving friend sent this to me and cc’d a copy to Andrew. There’ve been several versions that have made the rounds. It still cracks me up.

Dear Dogs,

When I say to move, it means to go someplace else, not switch positions with each other so there are still two dogs in the way.

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate does not stake a claim making it your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

“Yeah, what’s his canvas?” I ask.
