I looked out the window in the back door. Our Golden Retriever had compiled all of her backyard toys and her food dish in a pile in direct line with the door. There she sat staring at me with her big eyes. With heart melting I left the kids’ school work momentarily to get the dish to feed the dog. When I got to her pile, I decided to redistribute her toys to give her something to do. I hurled one this direction another that direction; then I bent down to grab the final toy. With fingers inches away I realized it was a dead mouse! “Ahhhhgh,” I jumped around and screamed as if it were alive. Then imagining faces in every neighbor’s window, I ran inside. Ew. Thanks a lot, doggie, but no more presents, please!
The kids and I laughed and laughed at Mama’s little fit. Laughter–it’s one of life’s simple pleasures!
Today we are linked to Simple Pleasures.
Ah, I’m with you on that! Let’s all learn to laugh together!
We used to have a golden. They are the best family dogs 🙂
At least hands wash clean, right?
Laughter…the best medicine for everything!

Yes laughter and more laughter…and how many times it is prompted by family animals
Laughter is the BEST! So sorry about the dead mouse, ewww! Your dog is so pretty!
I can just see you! Glad you didn’t touch it. And glad the kids got a good laugh!

It’s the best feeling to know that you can make a complete fool of yourself and still laugh about it!
Laughter is the best, especially with the ones you love!

Well, at least you are noticing…. snap a photo next time. 😉
OMG!! Esther I would have totally freaked out too!!…ewwwwww….in my case, my little fur baby is only 4 lbs and teeny-tiny and lives inside as our baby (we can’t have any kids)…I think the mouse would be bigger than her…So I feel confident this won’t happen to me…(knock on wood) lol
Wear some gloves next time *_^
Laughter is a wonderful gift. Especially being able to laugh at yourself. Thanks
Hee he. I would have done the same kind of dance too, LOL. Yes, laughter is the best kind of therapy.

My cat chased me around the house with a live mouse one day. I was screaming and running away and she kept dropping the mouse in front of me and then catching it again. I wasn’t sure who was going to have a heart attack first me or the mouse!
Don’t you just love dogs? I do! They have the funniest personalities. I just stopped over from the Mom Loop. Hope you will stop by too!

I hate it when our cat does that very same thing!!
This made me laugh out loud. I would’ve had the same reaction to a dead mouse. 🙂 So glad you linked up to Simple Pleasures. Hope to see you often.
