I’m doing my own version of the 12 Days of Christmas this year. Today, on the day lyrically celebrated by four Calling Bird, I’m republishing the 4th most popular post on StealingFaith in 2012.
Yesterday, in all the excitement of watching snow fall and testing new coffee creamers I forgot to mention the Georgia couple that got naked and gave their dog LSD.
Last Sunday a couple got high, stripped down to their birthday suits, and ran along the road until the police came and collected them.
Do you ever read stories like this and wonder how anyone gets to a place where they run naked down a public street? Drugs.
Nancy Reagan was right: Just Say No.
No one is sure exactly what happened, but about the same time the couple ran naked through the streets the dog was hit by a car and diagnosed with LSD hallucinations by the veterinarian.
The dog had to be put down. The couple is in jail.
Here’s what I’ve learned:
1. Keep your dog stuff separate from your people stuff. That dog shoulda never died. But if you don’t do drugs, keep your stuff separate. I’m working on this in our house – Tres believes the poodles need to share her toothbrush. It’s a problem.
2. Keep your clothes on. Public indecency tends to be a problem in all cultures except tribal and Italian. We just don’t want to see it… and especially don’t want to see it highlighted by our headlights at 8 p.m. Sunday evening.
That’s all I’ve got for tonight. Were you surprised to know a dog can do drugs?
(December 2012 commentary: I know it’s wrong to laugh at animals under the influence, but I’ve recently discovered this video of a drunk squirrel. It makes me laugh – you might enjoy it, too!)
