I saw that cow story last week and was glad to know only one cow received minor burns.

I think the sheep story is my favorite, too. The photo does make them look a bit like a group of thugs roaming the 'hood!

The shoplifting granny was quite a surprise. 4 years is a long time!

LOVE the weim story. They are such great dogs. Poor baby but at least they found a way to help him!

Hahahahaha! Great and funny articles this week (as usual)! Not quite sure what to say. . . the 76-year-old shoplifter could take up a new "hobby", Bluey's a real cutie (and his owner's very nice to him), and those stray sheep are quite a sight! Enjoyed your Monday post again, Tracy!

I had a dog that was allergic to so many things - including grass. It was horrible.

Great stories as always!

Oh boy about that granny on a four-year shoplifting spree because she was bored of being old and lol as well about the year of the whores!

Another great post! The Year of the Whores is too funny! And the poor dog, being allergic to grass. At least it turned out okay in the end.

I always wondered if that could happen with cows....

You have a knack of collecting these snippets. I admire the old woman more the n the cows or the sheep.

I shouldn't but I had to laugh when I read the first headline. Just like the celebrities who get caught . . . Age is the new excuse.

That is so sweet that they kept the Christmas tree up for the birds!

Heather said...

I obviously read the wrong newspapers. Mine is far too serious , no fun stories. Glad that you are willing to share yours, since you have more than enough to share.

Aww! The poor puppy! At least he has his booties to help soften the blow.
