Daisy's owner, Mrs. Brown, had just given birth to twins. It was a return to the old ways for Mrs. Brown, eschewing the hospital for a home birth, replacing the obstetrician with a midwife, and foregoing the stainless steel of the delivery room for the birthing pool they had set up in the master bedroom. Daisy watched from the hallway as Mrs. Brown entered the pool, and, with the encouragement of the midwife and Mr. Brown, labored, giving birth to two beautiful baby boys. "Wow," Daisy thought, "that was amazing...and so easy." A smart girl typical of her breed, Daisy got an idea. Almost immediately, Daisy busied herself making preparations. First, she identified the cleanest and biggest plastic bin in the garage, dragging it into the yard. Next, carrying the garden hose in her mouth and operating the spray nozzle with her paw, she filled the bin with water. "Yes," she thought, "this will work nicely." Daisy relaxed and played in the water, finally tipping over the bin and spilling the water. It was about eight days later when Daisy again found herself in search of the tub, uprighting the bin, filling it with water, and crawling into the warm bath. This time, though, there was no playing, no frolicking. Upon entering the water, Daisy could feel her body relaxing, the warmth enveloping her, so restful she thought she might fall asleep. She was so at peace, so open, so welcoming, so... When Daisy came to herself about 30 minutes later, she found that not only had she left the birthing pool behind, she was now the mother of four beautiful Jack Russell puppies.

P.S. My husband insists I report on the fact that the father of Daisy's puppies, a Cairn Terrier who lived next door, was in attendance at the birthing, and it was he who removed the puppies from the pool...swaddling them in beach towels he had nicked from the linen closet. (Men...they always demand credit!!!)

Wait, wait!
I want to read the scene in which Rocky (the daddy dog) hears small peeping noises, looks through a knot hole in the privacy fence, notices puppy #1 bouncing like a buoy near Daisy, leaps the six foot high fence, and comes to come to the rescue!
Wait, wait!
I forgot the towels.
Whose towels is he nicking?
Are they on the clothesline in his yard?
Does he use the towels and clothesline to catapult himself over the fence into Daisy's yard?
Stay tuned!
Love it. jp

I used to think that the New Yorker's cartoon caption contest was tough...until I met you guys. My eyes have been opened to what fierce competition really is! Trust me, I don't want to meet any of you in a dark alley...albeit a garden plot or a pithy caption is at stake! :-)

No, twin sis, let's not compete!
Let's collaborate!
Next time, we could take turns writing one or two lines and passing them on to the next person!
What an amazingly bizarre crescendo we could build to!
Ooooooh, New Yorker cartoons!
Ahhhh, James Thurber!
Ohhhh, Far Side cartoons.

Make a note...April 3rd Sunday Funny will be interesting for sure. I passed it one day when driving to the next town and had to make a special trip back with my camera.

(and now you'll have to wait more than a month to see it...*evil grin*...)

Yes, sister, she is cruel AND very, very clever!
Muhahahaha A deadly combination.
Melody, we have no choice.
We must bow to your evil plan, do battle with your usual dazzling brilliance every Monday, and eagerly await April's lightening strike!
(Meanwhile, don't know about you, sis, but I'm going to go sharpen my pruning shears AND my wit!)
