Why seek revenge when one can simply reciprocate?

Am I mad about Rover?

Not at all.

Sure he barked at late hours of the night, but he was a good dog.

Am I mad the tiny, old woman next door poisoned him with tainted dog treats?

Of course not.

In fact, I’ve shown her my good will by making her a delicious cake. I left it at her front door for her birthday.

I may have left a note saying it’s from a relative, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s made with sugary goodness . . .

. . . and d-CON©

  1. Disturbing. I like it.

  2. Sly words.
    By the way, as I read this, the ad on the bottom of your page was for Iams dog food coupons!

  3. LOL. I need to get rid of those. But I keep seeing and hearing about funny things like that so I'm not sure I should.

    Buahahahaha. LOVE IT. Especially b/c I know of a dog that suffered attempted poisoning.

  5. Thanks! It was actually inspired by my childhood dog that WAS poisoned. 

    What? I'm not bitter....:)
