Creative stories for Bendyfoot

A big thank you to Bendyfoot who brought Jaida out to play with my puppers on the weekend- we had a lot of fun.

I have a task for everyone though..
I have noticed that strangers are intrigued with Jaida only having three legs. (Jaida's leg has been amputated at the shoulder.) Within moments of their observation, they ask Bendyfoot what happened to her dog..
I think we should come up with some creative stories, so Bendyfoot does not have to repeat herself constantly.
Here were a few we came up with at the park.

Jaida is missing a leg because:

"I cut her nails too short..."
"It was a tragic skiing accident..."
"Happened while on safari..."

LMBO!!!:laughing::laughing::laughing:

Some people can't count, though...the other question I get (aside from the "what happened to the leg") is "did you know your dog is limping?" (duh:rolleyes:):laughing:

Thanks to you too, Macomom, for the playdate! Jaida definitely enjoyed herself and so did I. She told DW about all her adventures for about half an hour then slept allllllllllllllll afternoon :sleepy::laughing:

Oh and please give Bos a big squish for me :D

For year and years people have asked me the exact same questions about my tattoos...
Are those real?
When did you get them?
Do they mean something?
I have come up with a variety of semi ridiculous answers to these questions. I can say them all with a straight face. it takes practice, but it is worth all the effort.

What tattoos?
No, they are stick ons. Takes a really long time...
I was born with them. Sad isn't it?
No, they don't mean anything. I just took suggestions.

She wanted to work at the "i hop" :)

I get the questions about my tattoo too, (its dogtags, like soldiers). When people ask "are those dog tags?" I have started responding "No, their the ownership rights" ;) lolz

I think i can match that or beat it, i work at a university, and we have an egg bar that makes eggs to order in front of them. We have eggs, egg whites and egg beaters. Alot of them will give me there ingredients that they choose from a salad bar type area, and tell me to scramble them or an omelet. Well i have gotten some strange answers to my question of what kind of eggs do you want. :rolleyes: I had one guy tell me the yellow ones. :eek: I've also gotten round ones. They have also come up and asked for real eggs, not the fake ones. :eek: huh
Its really quite scary :confused:
