Dorkie Moment #2

Kirby can always make me laugh. It's been said a picture speaks a thousand words, and I clearly have the funniest picture in my mind, but alas, I just didn't have a camera in my hand to capture it. It all happened so fast. The best I can do is try to visualize this Kodak moment with words.

To set the stage you have to know how fastidious I am about toilet lids always being closed. I suppose it goes back to my childhood but in my defense I did watch an experiment on MythBusters where they placed toothbrushes on the walls all around a bathroom. A few days later their testing showed that flushing the toilet caused fecal matter to spray out into the room landing on every single toothbrush. So even though we can't see it, it's there. That's enough reason for me to close the lid before flushing! Just something to think about.

Anyway, back to my story. Whenever I'm in the bathroom Kirby likes to either settle on the bathmat or up on the toilet. The other night I was cleaning the bathroom counter when I heard a big splash. Turning around to look, I saw Kirby with his front feet on the toilet seat and his entire back end in the toilet bowl. As if frozen, he just looked at me. I swear he truly had a shocked look on his face! In the next second I just couldn't help but laugh out loud. Kirby, embarrassed, or maybe insulted by my laughter at his expense, scampered out of the toilet before I even got to him.

Of course in the next second I prayed that whoever left the lid up had thought to flush the toilet! Luckily, the only damage done was to Kirby's pride. Although I have noticed that he checks to make sure the lid is down before he jumps. So funny! 

Just a dorky moment in a Dorkie’s life...
