All Our Children Meow and Woof: CONTEST!

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

Inspired by Nanook and Pooka.

We have been getting some weird searches over at Finneganland. I don't know what to tell you but I thought I would share BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO BE THE ONLY ONE TO POSSESS THIS KIND OF KNOWLEDGE. Some of the searches are okay, some are - oh my god with the F__? - and some are okay, dude, whatever. So here we go. Please pick one and give your answer in the comments section. More than one person can pick one of the nine options. The funniest one will get some sort of prize from me. I don't know what it will be yet, we are working at that over at the Finnegan Headquarters.

Here are the search terms verbatim (there were some other ones that were funny/creepy/disturbing but we currently can't find them):
  1. Pet Glamor Shots
  2. How to make my own child fence
  3. should we take the puppy into our bedroom the first night
  4. Pictures of possessed girls
  5. Why cats shiver
  6. Photos children looking over fences
  7. kids and Irish Wolfhounds
  8. write a grocery list for two
  9. I have four children and need a wagon to pull them in
Go, you crazy kids!

Deadline is November 15, 2007.

3. How to make my own child fence

Buy him/her a sword and one of those really cool outfits. You might also want to watch the Daffy Duck cartoon for instructions.

8. kids and Irish Wolfhounds

I don't see any reason to mix the two.

9. Pictures of possessed girls

I don't have any pictures, but I'm pretty sure I've met a few.

It's got to be #10. That's just too good.

Step 1: Have 'intimate relations,' at least four times.

Step 2: Give birth to four children. (In the interest of multitasking, this can be done simultaneously, although we wouldn't recommend it.)

Step 3: Get a large box.

Step 4: You're going to need some wheels.

Step 5: Attach wheels to box. No, not with superglue. Yes, we know that superglue holds really well. Honestly, if you can't figure out why you can't glue wheels to your box using superglue, we can't help you.

Step 6: You could use a conventional handle, but since four children can get kind of heavy, we recommend attaching an Irish Wolfhound to the front of your box. Just make sure your box is high enough off the ground so that if your dog poops, it doesn't drag the box through it. Trust us on this one.

Step 7: Place small children in box.

Step 8: Get a cat or small yappy dog.

Step 9: Release cat (or small yappy dog) in front of your Irish Wolfhound. Step back and watch the fun! Wheeeee!

Twice 5 miles: #9.

I took one out for editorial reasons.

The "Pictures of Possessed Girls" search has GOT to be related to all the shots of your mama in the glamour shots posts. She is TOTALLY gone & gaga over you, big guy! (Plus, she looks a little crazed normally, I suspect).

Goober love,

To Whom It May Concern:

We represent a celebrity client who is interested in a Glamour Shots portrait session for herself and her collection of Chihuahuas. Due to the intensity of her fame we are unable to reveal her identity, but we can assure you that the publicity you will receive for this session will more than make up for the free services she requires. Although she is typically quite agreeable, there are a few accommodations upon which we must insist, for her comfort, privacy and safety. First, the session must occur no earlier than 3:00 pm, as our client arises quite late in the day. Second, you must provide a staff consisting of one bonded security guard per Chihuahua, as our client's dogs each wear diamond bracelet collars on permanent loan from Harry Winston. Third, you must provide a hairdresser to tend to our client's extensive collection of wigs. Fourth, you must provide a staff of two English nannies to be present in case our client's young children accompany her to the session.

Please get in touch with us as soon as possible with no fewer than seven possible dates when you'll be able to close your facility to accommodate our client's private portrait sitting.

Our client reserves the right to cancel this contract at the last moment should the impulse hit her.

2. How to make my own child fence
-procreate, procreate!
-arrange your children by height, standing close together.
-tie them together at the waist

easily movable, low cost before they reach college age

very narrow temperature and precipitation tolerance, not recommended for large yards or dogs, can be noisy

I'm still trying to figure out if FeeFiFoto is being ironic or not.
