Well guys you know that feeling when you laugh so much you cry and you are afraid you are going to lose control of your bladder? I had been feeling a bit down this week but I just had one of those moments when you laugh that hard and boy did it cheer me up a lot - so much so I had to share it with you all! I was chatting with a very lovely friend, who many of you will know as Blondie ( ok yes it was our Gabs!) when her voice got shaky and she started calling on Gissi, it turns out our Gabs has a real fear of all creepy crawlies and there was a big, black beetle type thing crawling over her carpet! Eventually minutes later Gissi comes along to see what she wants, takes a look at the beetle has a bark and then just stands there looking, another bit of a bark and then jumps on the sofa beside Gabs! All this time Gabs is saying "get it Gissi, get it" Gissi point blank refused to do anything other than have a look and a bark and poor Gabs was getting really upset! In the end Blondie had to very nervously get on the floor and deal with the problem herself as her Hero Gissi looked on from the comfort and safety of the couch! hee hee hee I've added the photo that poor, shaking Gabs took of Gissi as she tried to get him to protect her from the creepy crawly! I know it sounds as though I was heartless but if you could have heard the conversation Blondie had with her Hero believe me you would have laughed too! We all need a hero like Gissi - don't ya think? Love you Gabs - hugs to Gissi xxxx

Lol Sweetheart don't feel bad for laughing as I think if it would been anyone else I would have laughed to it must have sounded funny I have to admit As for my Hero well he is snoring now I mean it must have taken a lot of Energy to watch me trying to get the thing If you need protecting shout Gissi (NOT) He is so adorable it is unbelievable What I could not get was that he was trying to dig it into the rug I mean come on it was crawling out again I hate anything like that and worse are Spiders and I will tell you all my experience that I had this morning with one of them tomorrow Give Gissi his due he ran into the Bathroom as I ran out but he did not get the Spider he just looked at me and walked away I thought there was another Beetle earlier but it wasn't it was fluff I think my little Hero put that there Love you Sweetie xxxxx

What an absolute wimp of an animal, it gets us dogs a really bad name, Beetles are a special delicacy of mine, just can't get enough of them, I don't think I've met Blondie here (or anywhere else), but I can't understand why she would be scared of a beetle anyway. All you need is a jeely jar and a bit of cardboard to get rid of the creature humanely - its not as if it was a spider and from what I've read everyone eats at least 7 spider in their lifetime while they are sleeping. Have a nice pleasant dream tonight!! Woof

What's the point of having a brother if he doesn't put things like that in your bed.

Very funny, I can picture the scene, hysterical Gabs and laidback Gissi. I think all the patchouli he has been sniffing has turned him into a hippy dog!! Next he will be wearing a badge saying "Meat Is Murder":)

Bless Gissi's heart. He was probably frightened too. I don't know why I was under the false impression that Gissi was a feline. Something that Gabs said the other day, though, corrected this assumption. I think it was her post about putting dog food in her coffee cup, LOL.

I can't laugh too much at this because I am the same way as Gabs when it comes to creepy crawlies. But most of the time either my cats or dogs will get whatever is lurking around. Maybe Charlotte needs to give Gissi some lessons. She is my biggest protector.

I had a similar experience with a huge black spider in a hotel room a long time ago and my dachshund also did nothing so I stepped on it and I couldn't believe my eyes as I had hundreds of tiny black things crawling all over the floor...it was one of these spiders that carries it young on it's back! You could have heard me screaming in the next country.
