Funny Responses to the Starbucks "Controversy"

Dog Shoots Owner

On Monday, October 26, Allie Carter of Avilla, Indiana went hunting with her dog, Trigger.  The 25-year-old woman had an apprentice hunting license, and had not been through hunter safety training.  It's the only excuse I know for what happened next.

All Wednesday, we sat around on pins and needles as the status reports came in.  Kareem seemed to be okay; his front left leg wasn't working but didn't look broken.  Probably nerve damage that may or may not heal on its own.  His right eye was swollen - would he lose his eye? Kareem lasted for over 10 hours.  Then the call came in.  Kareem went into cardiac arrest. He died. Waiting for his daddy (my son) to come home Wednesday night was one of those times that demark a before and after time - an event that makes a lasting impression, creating an internal division in your personal history.  Before I had a grandpuppy named Kareem who loved it when I sang to him.  After ... well, after my f
