What’s on the Fridge?

No. Not what’s “in” the fridge…but only cause I couldn’t open it, unlike Luna the Vizsla, who’s peoples actually taught her how. Wish my peoples would teach me that. In fact, ever since I saw Luna do that trick, I’ve been trying to figure it out for myself, and while I was staring at the fridge contemplating it the other day, I noticed this mess:

Do you think my peoples like fridge magnets? Well you’d be wrong. It’s actually only The One Called Donna who likes them. The One Named Nick could care less.

But I since I couldn’t get the fridge open had nothing better to do, I decided to take a closer look, and I realized something. The One Called Donna is really lazy. Take this for example:

Did you know she got that as a Christmas gift LAST year? It’s um, what, October already, and she hasn’t even put it on her car. You want to know why? She says she has to “wash it” first. Not the sticker – the car. Yup, she hasn’t gotten her car washed in over a year. How lazy is that?

Bet you know the problem with this too (besides the fact that it’s not a “Lab” magnet):

Yup – it belongs on her car too. Same excuse. “Not washed.” The One Called Donna bought it when the peoples and the other two dogs ALL went to Florida last February, but abandoned me at our friend Bev’s house.

I thought they were just sending me on vacation to get away from Leah and Meadow for a while, but now that I have access to the blog, I found out THE TRUTH.

And speaking of Bev, THIS is the biggest proof of my peoples’ laziness I’ve yet to find:

THAT, my friends, is a picture frame, given as a gift to my peoples for checking in on Bev’s Golden Girls, Maureen and Orlagh, while Bev was in Florida. (What’s with you peoples going to Florida and leaving us behind anyway?)

But do you notice the dog in the picture? Look closely. Yup. That’s NOT me. Who is it you ask? Well, that’s the best part. The One Called Donna was too lazy to print a photo of any of us, so she cut a photo of a dog out of a catalog.

I. Kid. You. Not.

At least it’s a Lab, I guess. But talk about lazy. Okay, so now that I’ve one hundred percent proven her laziness to you, let’s see what else I found on the fridge…

Well, alright, that’s probably a good thing to have on the fridge, especially with a Lab in the house…

But this one here’s even more important:

That’s where the peoples get my Real Meat treats. Yum.

But what’s this?

What is it with my peoples and beer? They probably won’t go anyway – The One Called Donna has her excuses all lined up already (it’s too far, too much monies, who will drive?) but I think it’s just cause she’s L.A.Z.Y.

It doesn’t really matter though, because that’s got nothing to do with dogs…

And neither does this:

A Garlic Festival? Who cares about garlic? (Unless it’s on a Pizza). Oh, and look at the date. Come on peoples, let’s get rid of some clutter.

Hmmmm….was there anything else to see?

Oh, that’s right….there’s THIS insulting postcard:

Do you know who sent it? One of my old trainers, that’s who. I brought my peoples to her to get them help, and this is the thanks I get? An insulting postcard in the mail? Hey Ritsa, who gave who a Canine Good Citizen certificate anyway? I bet you don’t have one on your wall.

And that’s about it that’s “ON” the fridge. Next time, if I ever figure out how to get the door open like Luna, we’ll have a look inside

    Good morning Toby! Boy, your mom is lazy the kind of mom who likes to take her time doing things!
    Though, not putting your picture in the frame, well, I think I’d be protesting that, maybe ripping it off the fridge will help her change her ways!

    I’ll have to take a picture of my human’s refrigerator. Not sure what color it is because the outside is like a bad episode of Hoarders! Front and side!

    AND there is no picture of me but there is one of a dog called Stella! I don’t know who that dog is but there is a picture of her on the wall tool. THE WALL! And I know her name is Stella because there are magnets spelling out her name around the picture!

    I think I need to knock some stuff off too!

    • Toby says:

      Hi There Gracie – sounds like your peoples fridge is REALLY bad. You should definitely take a picture of it and tell everyone about her hoarding issues. My peoples have photos of a dog named Harley too. I never met him, but I heard he showed them the “dog owning ropes” – so maybe Stella did the same for your peoples.

  2. Jodi says:

    Toby, your peoples fridge is very clean compared to mine. I had a magnet for our old vet who we hadn’t used in like three years, but I finally threw it out. :-)

    Be careful if you get into the fridge, I heard that Donna has an inventory list of items inside there, she’ll know if something’s missing…

    I have had a vizsla sticker for several months now, that I have not put on my car for the very same reason. Got to wash the car first, and I’d rather spend the car wash money on dog supplies. It’s my way of keeping a layer of environmentally friendly uv protection on my car, right?

    Loved the tour of the outside of the refrigerator…what’s with humans and junk on the refrigerator anyway? We are looking forward to an inside peek, but it you get it you will probably eat it all.

    Love it! I live pretty close to Belmont and absolutely adore beer in every way. I may have to hit this up!

    • Toby says:

      My peoples keep going on and on about some Toasted Lager made in Blue Point. They’ve even let me lick the drops from the empty bottle and it’s really good – but please don’t tell anyone – I might get taken away by CPS (Canine Protective Services).

  6. Emma says:

    My mom has a frig magnet obsession as well, the thing is covered in them, no idea why and I don’t think she knows either but she keeps hanging more and more of them!

  7. I don’t know, I think the stickers look better on the fridge than the car. That way you can see them more.

  8. Basil says:

    A few things I have noticed, your donna sounds a lot like my typist and she didn’t even react when you said she hadn’t washed the car in a year – BOL! Typists argument is that it will get dirty again, and also she is so bad at it she always misses a bit which puts her in a bad mood so she doesn’t bother!

    Putting a picture of a dog from a mag in the photo frame is so funny, although didn’t that take as much if not more effort than printing a photo off?

    How do you cope??

    • Toby says:

      You know, I really don’t know how I deal with my peoples sometimes.

      As for you question about the frame – the printer is in “the other room” and the laptop isn’t connected to it through “wireless” – however – the catalog was sitting on the kitchen table with Labs right on the cover. :-)

    If you figure out how to get the fridge open we want you to give us lessons!!! We thinks that would be so cool to open the fridge! Our mom has stuff all over our fridge, but they are pictures of the human kids and all of her dogs! She has one whole side of the fridge full of pictures! We know what you mean by lazy, cause some of those pictures are a gazillion years old. Can’t she get some new ones to put on the fridge? With all the pictures she takes you would think she would put some new ones up!!!!! Maybe all peoples are lazy:)

    • Toby says:

      I think you are right. It’s all of them. Peoples spend too much time on their computers to do anything productive. Not me. I blog a bit, then I sleep, and eat, and play, and eat, and annoy the peoples, and then I eat some more….

  10. Hey Toby,

    Looks like you’re doing an early Spring Cleaning on your Fridge buddy!! Or maybe it’s a late Spring Clean?

    Either way, that one with the picture of another Dog in the frame made me chuckle, I know I probably shouldn’t have laughed, but I couldn’t help it Dude!!

    Keep us posted, I’m sure your Mum will feel compelled to put your picture in there now that you’ve told the world what’s going on?

    Wags to all

    Your pal Snoopy :)
