I don't think the dog said "Rough", tardmitter. Dogs lack the vocal ability and comprehension to use the english language. It's more likely the dog just barked and it sounded like "Rough" when he was asked that. Maybe you should look into how dog vocalizations work before submitting such an awful headline.

Wow, this is twice in two days I share this. I made a similar joke in an interview about a Mitt Romney incident. Interview here (LGT text)

Dammit, I came here to post that joke!

I'll post this one instead:

I went to the cinema the other day and in the front row was an old man and with him was his dog. It was a sad funny kind of film, you know the type. In the sad part, the dog cried his eyes out, and in the funny part, the dog laughed its head off. This happened all the way through the film. After the film had ended, I decided to go and speak to the man.

"That's the most amazing thing I've seen," I said. "That dog really seemed to enjoy the film."

The man turned to me and said, "Yeah, it is amazing. He hated the book."

When I was a kid, maybe 12 or 13, we were walking down our freshly plowed street in the North Country of upstate New York. Our dog Sadie, a cockermutt, was walking along with us. There's a couple of feet of new snow so we are mostly walking in the street but Sadie enjoyed jumping around in the fresh powder and leaping off the plowed snowbanks and running around a bit before jumping back into the snow. Just your normal goofy dog behavior.

We were getting near the corner where traffic started to pick up so we're getting ready to turn around and head home when all of a sudden Sadie goes ballistic. She is digging in the snowbank and barking her head off. Since she almost never barked we headed over to see what the fuss was about and inspired by her frantic digging  we all stopped to help. It takes a few minutes but we eventually uncover a little chihuahua that must have been in the street when the plow went by and gotten buried in the bank. The little bastard is shivering like crazy so we take him home to get him warmed up. Sadie isn't about to let him out of her sight.

We get him home and wrap him up in a towel and look at his collar and it turns out he only lives about a mile away, so we call the people on his tag and they come over in about an hour and pick him up.

The next day I get home from school (walking, in the snow, uphill both ways etc etc) and there is the chihuahua, Poncho, sitting on our front porch. I let Sadie out and they frolic for a bit and I call the people to tell them where their dog is. They come to pick him up after they get off from work. About two hours later Sadie starts barking at the front door and there is Poncho, shivering his skinny little ass off.

Eventually his owners asked us if we just wanted to keep him and so we did.

And that is my dog in a snowbank csb.

I take it you are not on the fence about dog vocalizations?

That is probably the best chihuahua story I've ever read.

My CSB of similar note,

A few years ago I go to my moms house. She lives near a freeway so there is a green belt close by. I let my dog out of the car and he runs over to the fence that keeps little buggers like him from running out onto the road.

Any how, he has somehow heard this dog on the other side. She comes up to the fence and they both start whining and doing the little doggie dance. I can't figure a good way to get this dog out from the other side as the fence has been left all pokey at the top and the nearest way around is probably a half mile.

I probably could have started cutting the fence, but we called it in instead. Good thing we did because a neighbor a few blocks over had reported their dog missing over a month before. The one smalll town cop shows up, the family shows up, a state guy shows up who then cuts open the fence and the family gets their dog back who has apparently been wandering back and forth against this fence trying to find its way out and back toward home for a long while.

They allow puns as headlines now? In the year-end wrap up newsletter from Drew, he claims to specifically avoids puns.

Guy walks into a bar in Boston with his dog, the bartender tells him 'No dogs allowed.' 

The guy says, 'But this dog talks.'  Bartender gives him a dirty look, 'Prove it.' 

Guy starts to question his dog.  'How does sandpaper feel on your butt?'

'Rough'... the bartender isn't impressed, so the guy goes on.

'What's on top of a house?'

'Roof'.  The bartender signals the bouncer.

'No wait.  Give me another try... what is on a tree?'

'Bark'  The bouncer starts dragging the dog and it's owner out.

'No wait.  Rover, who is the greatest baseball player of all time?'

The dog looks at his owner and says, 'Look, you know damn well the answer to that, but Ruth is kind of a sore subject here in Boston, so let's just leave before they decide to give us a beatdown in the alley.'
