Grin On Your Chin

Believe it or not I enjoy a few other things besides Weimaraners and associated 'Doggy Activities'. Only a few... not too many... One is humour, be it animal humour at that.

I was inspired to add this page after enjoying a laugh or two while visiting James S. Huggins' Refrigerator Door.

Just to clarify, this is humour. It is not in any way, shape or form recommended you attempt any of these. Purely here to put a Grin-On-Your-Chin.

I received these VIA email but do not know the original source. If you are the original source or know who it is, please write me. I will gladly give credit where it is due or remove the content if so requested.




  1. He's distracted by CATS chasing his MOUSE

  2. SIT and STAY were hard enough: CUT and PASTE are out of the question

  3. Saliva coated floppy disks refuse to work

  4. Three words: CARPAL PAW SYNDROME

  5. Involuntary tail wagging is a dead give-away that he's browsing instead of working

  6. The FIRE HYDRANT icon is simply too frustrating

BICYCLES: Two wheeled exercise machines, invented for dogs to control body fat. To get maximum aerobic benefit, you must hide behind a bush and dash out, bark loudly and run along side for a few yards. The person the swerves and falls into the bushes and you prance away.

BUMP: The best way to get your human’s attention when they are drinking a fresh cup of coffee or tea.

DEAFNESS: This is simply a malady, which affects dogs when their human wants them in and they want to stay out. Symptoms include staring blankly at the human, then running in the opposite direction or lying down.

DOG BED: Any soft, clean surface, such as the white bedspread in the guestroom or the newly upholstered couch in the living room.

DROOL: Is what you do when your human has food and you don’t. To do this properly you must sit as close as you can and look sad and let the drool fall to the floor, or better yet, on their laps.

GARBAGE CAN: A container, which your neighbours put out once a week to test your ingenuity. You must stand on your hind legs and try to push the lid off with your nose. If you do it you are rewarded with margarine wrappers to shred, beef bones to consume and mouldy bread.

LEAN: Every good dog’s response to the command SIT, especially if your human is dressed for an evening out. Incredibly effective before black-tie events.

LEASH: A strap, which attaches to your collar, enabling you to lead your human where you want him/her to go.

LOVE: Is a feeling of intense affection, given freely and without restriction. The best way you can show your love is to wag your tail. If you’re lucky, a human will love you in return.

SNIFF: A social custom to use when you greet other dogs. Place your nose as close as you can to the other dogs rear end and inhale deeply. Repeat several times or until your human makes you stop.

SOFAS: Are to dogs like napkins are to people. After eating, it is polite to run up and down the front of the sofa and wipe your whiskers clean.

THUNDER: This is a signal that the world is coming to an end. Humans remain amazingly calm during thunderstorms, so it is necessary to warn them of the danger by trembling uncontrollably, panting, rolling your eyes wildly and following at their heels.

WASTEBASKET: This is a dog toy filled with paper, envelopes and old candy wrappers. When you get bored, turn over the basket and strew the papers all over the house until your human comes home.
