My Week 61: Titus And I Watch The National Dog Show

Friday: Titus and I make fun of the National Dog Show

Titus: Watcha doin’?
Me: Watching the National Dog Show.
Titus: Cool. (jumps up on bed) So what’s going on?
Me: It’s the Working Dogs right now.
Titus: (snorts derisively) Right.
Me: What?
Titus: That dog never worked a day in his life. His paws look all soft.
Me: And you’re Mr. Blue Collar? When was the last time YOU did any work?
Titus: Excuse me? Just yesterday, you were all like, “Where’s the Piggy, Titus? Can you find the Piggy?” And I DID. I AM a Retriever, you know. It was hard work. That pig was like all the way upstairs in the guest room.
Me: Yes, because that’s where you left it. Now be quiet so I can watch this. It’s the –
Titus: Holy sh*t, that dog has dreadlocks! WTF?!! Is that even REAL?
Me: Yes, Titus, it’s a Komondor, a real dog.
Titus: A “Commodore”? What, like Lionel Ritchie’s dog or something?
Me: Yes, that dog belongs to Lionel Ritchie. Obviously. Now stop talking—it’s the Toy category now.
Titus: I can see why they call them “Toys”. None of those dogs are real either. That one looks like a cotton ball blew up in the microwave, that one looks like Raven coughed it up, and that one is like something out of a Japanese anime cartoon. You want to see a real dog? THIS is what a real dog looks like. Check me out.
Me: Oh my god (averts eyes). What the hell is wrong with you?
Titus: Real dog. Right here, baby.
classy Titus

  1. Yeah, our three Dalmatians laugh at Komondors too, but mainly because they’ve seen them up close and know that it’s impossible to get a Komondor completely dry. This makes mold grow in their dreadlocks so they stink.
    Short hair is always better than long.
    And I want to know who’s abusing the elves. If it’s the parents then that’s just wrong.
    If it’s the kids then I admire their healthy lack of respect for authority.


  2. I didn’t realize that about Komondors–kind of gross. Also that fur looks sooo heavy–it almost seems abusive to me. As for the other, my plan is to get one, dress him in a military uniform and hide him behind the toilet. I think my 17 year old will get a kick out of it. Or it will scare the crap out of him–either way, it’s all good.


  3. Oh my goodness this post was hilarious. I sort of popped over here from Christopher’s blog, and I’m so glad I did. I loved the Elf on a Shelf detailed description of how he’s been found. My personal favourite was in the nativity scene. Let’s admit it, that was funny. And yeah, totally a parent thing. As a kid the thought of a fat guy breaking into my house was frightening enough. I just thank everything that is not green that we did not have an elf issue. And your sock monkey is doing a great job!


  4. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!

    Very useful info specially the last part 🙂 I care for such information much.
    I was seeking this certain information for a long time.

    Thank you and best of luck.


  5. I think Elf On The Shelf is wasted on kids, much more fun to be had pranking adults. And agree with the sinister connotations of it for children. A real pet peeve of mine is when parents, whilst in my shop, tell their kids to behave or ‘that lady will tell you off/ask us to leave/insert other threat here’. OR, here’s an old-fashioned idea, as the parent/guardian of said child, maybe YOU could discipline them! Poor Elf, being made out to be the bad guy.

    • I heard a woman tell a little girl the other day, “Do you know what would happen if you’d broken that? You would go to JAIL!” The little one started bawling, and I was like, “No, you WON’T, sweetie!”
