Rainy My Rambunctious Puppy
Some of my greatest memories are about this dog... 14 years after her death, I'm sitting here writing this--so there's your proof. So let's get started:
My husband was not exactly the jump out of bed type of person. He would allow the alarm clock to sound, then hit snooze about six times before climbing out of bed. He never even rolled over, his arm would just fly across the air and hit the top of the clock.
One day Rainy must have gotten annoyed with him, as was I. After the third or fourth time, the alarm blared across the room, but hubby didn't move. I nudged him, "Shut it off, come on.. Get up!" He didn't move fast enough. Rainy took her paw and went WHACK! Flying through the air was the lamp, the clock and a water filled vase of flowers.
THAT got my husband jumping out of bed, screaming and yelling! "Look what your stupid dog did! I can't believe you are laughing!"
"What? It's cute! Not only did she learn something new, but she got you up!"
He wasn't happy. He often told me he was going to get rid of her. I would have liked to seem him try. I had her 5 years longer than I had him :)
I had a habit of putting a bagel in the toaster oven, then jumping in the shower. By the time I got out, my bagel would be done. One day I came out and my bagel was gone.
"That pain in the neck hubby of mine must be playing tricks on me." I was alone, but I thought maybe my husband returned home after forgetting something on his way to work. A plausible thought. The next day, I did the same thing. I come out from the shower..... and...
Bagel gone. Hmmmm.... now I'm thinking my husband and brother are involved in some weird conspiracy to drive me crazy. AH! I got it. I'll set up a video camera and catch the culprits. Boy was I shocked. There was Rainy on my video, paws on the counter top, then with one paw, she pulled the glass door of the toaster oven down until it tilted forward. The bagels slid right onto the floor, and the spring action of the door allowed the door to shut once the oven was upright again. There was my baby, scarfing down my bagels.
