Loyal Dog Returns to Owner's Funeral

Ever since Sam was a puppy, he rarely left his owner's side.

When his owner Teddy Crockarell lost his battle with cancer last Monday, his wife Marcene believes Sam must have sensed something was wrong.

The dog, who wears an electric fence collar, ran away from the couple's home on Kimbrough Road.

Two and a half days later, after searching for Sam, the family arrived at a church on Trenton Road, over six miles from their home, for Teddy's funeral and discovered Sam was waiting for them.

Marcene Crockarell said, "He was just shivering and sitting there by the doors. We just lost it and all we were doing was hollering, 'Sam! Sam!' and here he comes and he was just all over all three of us."

There is no way to know what prompted Sam, who had never left home on foot, to run away and end up at a church he'd never seen, but his family has a theory.

"If he walked those six miles he was looking for his papa... but he found him, and that's what's good about this whole situation, he found him and he found his way back here," said Marcene Crockarell's son-in-law Howard.

Sam is a two-and-a-half-year-old Dachsund.




I don't even know what to say.

Oh wait. I do.

This lead "singer". Is he on crack, or was he just raised to believe that we all have and should bring our our inner porcupine?


Groom that shit!

And did you see that guy NEXT to him? He has to cut an actual hole out of the top of his hats and doo rag in order for his luscious wax knots to protrude out and over and on to his shoulder.

Unfortunately, there is nothing funny to say about the other two guys in the band. They are normal and are just there because maybe they can play an instrument. Or maybe not, I can't say since I can't read xXxsheetmusicxXx.

As for me lovemuffins, I'm feeling much better. I met the writers and a few other important people in production realm of United States of Tara. Everyone seems really eager and excited(as am I ^___^;;;). Also, yeah I'm trying to act as cool as my character Kate by learning a bunch about Tokyo fashions and Anime. So if I start making weird little typing faces like the above or say things like "kawaii" just pretend I'm cool enough to do it.

Seriously though, check out my new favorite show Strawberry Marshmellow. You can watch a few episode on Youtube and its kind of mind blowing.
