Since I was a child, I’ve enjoyed collecting sage thoughts and silliness. Miles insisted some of these gems to into his book, “Dog Days in the Life of the Miles-Mannered Man,” a collection of tall tales, wagging tails, and tantalizing treats. As a free bonus to his book, he included a treat called “Dog Jokes with the Miles Paw of Approval.” This seems like a great place to share a few.
A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front passenger seat of the fire truck was a Dalmation dog. The children started discussing the dog’s duties.
“They use him to keep crowds back,” said one youngster.
“No,” said another. “He’s just for good luck.”
A third child firmly closed the argument with, “They use the dogs to find the fire hydrant.”
Tidbits of advice:
If your dog doesn’t like someone you probably shouldn’t either.
From the other side of the aisle, so to speak:
Cat’s Motto: No matter what you’ve done wrong, always try to make it look like the dog did it!
We’ll gleefully add more jokes and other bits from Miles’ book, which is available in convenient eBook PDF format from Quiet Thunder Publishing, but you should please feel free to offer up some of your own favorites, too… with love and laughter!
