My name is "Carlie"....

Hello...In December sis in law asked us to look after one of their puppies. She worry that the puppy would be bullied by the big dogs at home. Look after him for about a week. Her daughter name him 'Carly'. No idea why...:) When he came to us...only one month plus.

I never had pets before...my wife loves Golden Retriver...she likes dogs. She very comfortable with them...whereas i am not that keen or good in handling them. But slowly got use to it.

He is going to be living indoors ....did not want him to roam around outside. He seems to be very cautious about cleanliness.....do not simply do big and small business. One section of the house we put newspapers on the floor..and he will go and do it there.

We also let him go outside to do his business....after doing it...he automatically head straight back into the house.

He came to use at night, next day...i took him to a vet place to have a bath. Get rid of ticks. My wife bath him on the 4th day. By the 5th day...i was thinking of adopting him. When sis in law came back, i asked her to get permission from her daughter. She explain to her that 1) she won;t be able to care for him because she will be furthering her studies, and by letting him stay with us....he will have a very happy life.

Since he is now ours, can;t change his name but change the spelling...change to Carlie. Everyone who saw him says he is cute. Rubbish bin full, he don;t disturb, don;t simply bite things (except my wife's house slippers). I only let him eat puppy food. No human food for him.

He loves pink colour....i think cause when he was young, sis in law daughter always wear pink. At first he hate red colour...will bark at anything red...now he is fine. Loves to play with soft toys. He already have about 4. Loves to go for car rides. One time non stop for 2 hours.

Any idea on how to teach him to use leash? He hates it.

He is now 5 month plus...getting longer. Here are his young pictures.

"Oi please hurry with my food...am hungry already"

"Me and my soft toys. The small one has been with me since the first night i lived here. I have a giraffe, tiger, teddy, rabbit and a new ball".

"Wonder where did he go...is he getting food for me?"

"Oi...not ready lah....take again."

"Great stuffs...munch, munch, munch"

"What shall i do next?"

" Ah yes...pink colour slippers (slippers lasted about 4 months until he chews it all up)...so soft and delicious...wonder why it was thrown away. I love it"

"Wonder why so many people outside and i cannot meet them. What is CNY? I hope they go soon so i can go out. In the mean time i think i take a nap...heard rumours that these people don;t go home early. "

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'it's open!' His reply: 'I know. I already got that side.'

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, MS

We had to have the garage door repaired.
The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, 'Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, 'NO, it's not.' Four is larger than two.'

We haven't used Sears repair since.


My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter.
She said, 'you gave me too much money.' I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back. She sighed and went to get the manager, who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said 'We're sorry but we could not do that kind of thing.' The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'

From Kingman , KS

My daughter went to a local Taco Bell
and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind
the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'
He said he was sorry,
but they only had iceburg lettuce.

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, 'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?' To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?' He smiled knowingly and nodded,
'That's why we ask.'

Happened in Birmingham , Ala.

The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, 'What on earth are blind people doing driving?!'

She was a probation officer inWichita , KS
At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to 'downsizing,' our manager commented cheerfully, 'This is fun. We should do this more often.' Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.

This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.

I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the sake of her life, couldn't understand why her system would not turn on.

A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriffs office, no less.

How would you pronounce this child's name?


Leah?? NO
Lee - A?? NOPE
Lay - a?? NO
Lei?? Guess Again.
This child attends a school in Kansas City, Mo. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
It's pronounced "Ledasha", When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, "the dash don't be silent."

SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember to pronounce the dash.
If dey axe you why, tell dem de dash don't be silent.
