When we got home I started to take Princess A out of the stroller and she smiled and handed me a fish head. YES AN ACTUAL FISH HEAD. I dropped it in shock and then Freckles picked it up, dropped it at my feet, and smiled. It was like they thought they had given me some amazing gift.
I quickly disposed of the fish head and then washed everyone’s hands and paws about a million and one times. How did this even happen and why were they so proud of themselves?
It reminded me of Christmas morning when I was a child. No matter how hard we tried, every year my uncle’s dog would come inside with a dead bird in her mouth and drop it next to the tree. She was always so proud of herself and we were always grossed out!
I guess fish heads and dead birds are a dog and sometimes baby’s way of saying thank you. I tried to take it as a compliment but I am still completely freaked out by the incident.
Have your human, canine, or feline babies given you disgusting gifts? If so what? Or am I the only one?!?!?!?!
