“I’m stuck in a donut…HELP!” Charlie ran circles in the backyard, randomly kicking his back feet in the air hoping to free himself from the massive donut that threatened to strangle him.
“You ridiculous dog!” The poodle that shared people with Charlie could hardly stand Charlie’s silliness. “The people are trying to protect you from yourself.”
Charlie yelped, “Then why would they strangle me with a donut?”
Charlie fought back tears and dramatically shared his story, “I went for a ride with Dad, we stopped at that place with all the good smells and the next thing I knew I woke up with this thing around my neck.” He whispered, “I’m sore…you know…down there.”
The Poodle howled, “They had you neutered!”
Charlie stood like a statue, “There is nothing funny about that!”
The poodle walked away from Charlie and howled with more laughter, “And it will be weeks until you can check out the damage!”
