Verner takes a ride....

You know those days where you are just wondering "DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN??" 
(you are semi curious if you are being punk'd and looking around for cameras)
Well I ask that a lot, like last week when out of no where our oldest pooped his pants
in the car. Like really? We haven't had an accident in over a year and now you decide to do that? 
Or when every kid is screaming at once, in those moments you just wanna scream "COME ONNNNN!" but in reality you are just laughing at the madness of it all....
because sometimes the best thing to do is LAUGH. 
Laugh it all off.
It is so much easier than getting mad.

Well yesterday I had posted about our wonderful dog who likes to escape.
I posted about the fact that I bought him a bowtie collar so when he got lost he would look classy.
Well I did not really think that would happen. 

Until about 7:30 pm, Vincent and I were in the kitchen enjoying some milk and oreos 
soaking in some alone time because Luke passed out during the rosary.
The phone rang and it was a number I did not know, but for some reason I answered.
The conversation went a little something like this:

Police: Hello Miss Darr, this is the police. One of our officers picked up a german shepherd in your neighborhood and we have you in our records as having one lost last month"
Me: Yes we have a german shepherd but I do not think he is outside. Let me check around the house. 

((me checking the rooms realizing that Verner is indeed not here))
Police: Could you tell me what his collar looks like to confirm it's him
Me: ((giggling and shaking my head)) Umm...he is wearing a light blue BOWTIE!!!!
Police: Yes, that is him! You can come down to the station and get him!

I hung up laughing my butt off. I took Vincent along for the trip to the police station in the dark pouring rain. The officers were great about the whole ordeal. I bet when they caught him and saw his obnoxious bowtie they could only imagine who owned the damn dog! 

Welcome to my reality, it is a common thing for moments like this to happen!
It just cracks me up, that the reason I bought his bowtie was for him to look classy if he got lost.
It did the trick, our dapper dog was riding high and mighty in the back of the cop car in his chevron bowtie.
Keeping it classy up in here!:)

Only one song comes to mind for this ordeal...
"They see me rollin'
They hatin'
Patrolling they tryin to catch me ridin dirty
Tryin to catch me ridin dirty
Tryin to catch me ridin dirty
Tryin to catch me ridin dirty
Tryin to catch me ridin dirty"
