Joke Of The Week 7/2

Macedonia's John Gilbertson scores Joke of the Week and that Klaben Auto Works package!

A Father put his 3 year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying, "God bless Mummy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma and good-bye Grandpa."

The father asked, 'Why did you say good-bye Grandpa?' The little girl said, "I don't know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do."

The next day grandpa died.

The father thought it was a strange coincidence.

A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this, God bless Mummy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma"

The next day the grandmother died.

"OMG thought the father, "this kid is in contact with the other side."

Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say, "God bless Mummy and good-bye Daddy."

He practically went into shock. He couldn't sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office. He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock. He thought "if I can get by until midnight I'll be okay."

He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived; he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.

When he arrived home his wife said, "I've never seen you work so late. What's the matter?"

He said, "I don't want to talk about it, I've just spent the worst day of my life."

She said, "You think you had a bad day, you'll never believe what happened to me. This morning my boss Steeler Jim died in the middle of a meeting."

Joke Of The Week 6/5

Jim decided that he wanted to become a shepherd  and decided that the best place to be a shepherd was in Scotland, so he left America to pursue his dream.  When he found a want ad for a shepherd, he immediately applied and was invited for an interview.  There were 3 applicants for the position and the farmer said, “Now, of course, you will have to be comfortable wearing a kilt”.  They all had no problem with that.  “You will encounter bonnie lasses who will try to distract you from your herd in order to marry you as we do not have many men around these parts.  Being distracted could cause you to lose your herd”.  They all replied that would not be a problem.  “Well”, said the farmer, “there is a test that you must pass before I can hire you.  You must put on this kilt and tie this little bell to your manhood underneath.  Once you have done this, please come down to the barn for the test”.  All 3 did as instructed.  When they went in the barn, there was a pretty country girl standing there and the farmer said “Ok, the test starts now”, at this, the girl started to undress.  She took off her top and one of the bells went “ding-a-ling” the farmer said “I’m sorry lad, but this job is not for you” to one of the other applicants.  The girl then took off her bottom and the other applicant’s bell “ding-a-linged” and he was told that he was not right for the job either.  Finally, the girl was completely naked and Jim’s bell never made a sound.  The farmer congratulated Jim on his success and said “now go join your herd” and, immediately, Jim’s bell went “ding-a-ling”.

Meet Bella & Milo aka Benny

Bella 1  Benny 1


Okay ... this tiny girl and small boy are just PERFECT in EVERY WAY! We were all in love with them in their photo-shoot.  The two were traveling together when they were picked up.  They are both tiny and a perfect example of beautiful stock Beagles. Their tails never stopped the entire time we worked with them and they never minded us handling them at all.  Observing their behaviors, it was apparent that someone did a wonderful job raising these two very polite, and bonded, dogs.

After getting the pictures out there in social media outlets, the pet parents did come forward with a plea for help.  Feeling very familiar with Rubber City Radio personalities, they saw the Pay It Forward For Pets logo on the photos and reached out to us stating, “having listened for years, we feel like you are all trusted friends.”  They have had a lot of life changes and are no longer able to safely care for their beloved Beagles (approximately 3 years of age) and want us to help get them placed into a loving home – together!  These two are sooooo precious … if my husband permitted me, they’d be at my house today!  I really want them badly but I have to respect my limits.  They like other dogs and couldn’t care less about cats.  They like people young and old, big and small.  These dogs would be wonderful with a family OR all adult home; however, CONTAINMENT will always be KEY to their well-being.  These 2 have a history of hitting the road and will continue to do it if not kept safely contained.  Once a dog has a taste of freedoms, they always want to explore and because they are so small, they won’t fare well if hit by a car.

Adoption of these 2 cutie-pies will go through PIFFP (NOT Summit County Animal Control) so please contact us directly @ 330.760.0763 to inquire.  Don’t delay … with a lot of living to do, these young dogs want to meet their forever home TODAY!!!     

Note:  Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home.  For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks.  You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity.  We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy (or kitty).  Assume they know nothing and begin at step one.  You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member.  It's called commitment!  And, that's what these pets want more than anything!

Joke Of The Week 5/15

Joke051515Jim Gibson of Akron shoots and scores the Klaben Works for Joke of the Week!

A daughter says to her Dad, "Dad there is something that my boyfriend said to me, that I didn't understand." "He said that I have a beautiful chassis, lovely airbags and a fantastic bumper."

Her Dad said, "You tell your bloody boyfriend that if he opens your bonnet and tries to check your oil with his dipstick, I will tighten his nuts so hard that his headlights will pop out and he will start leaking out of his exhaust pipe."
