I was watching an episode of Dr. Who and the darn dog would not stop barking. And he keeps barking in threes.
(Kind of like maybe S O S?)
After waiting for someone else to take care of it I finally got up myself, which everyone figured I would do. Jack the dog was over by the jasmine bush that was a long viney thing going up the side of the garage wall. The dog is deaf as a doorpost so I clapped and yelled “Come over here, come on!!”
Jack lunged forward, stopped and went “Bark-bark-bark!” which means “If I could come over there would I be standing here barking in the sun?”
Then he lunges again.
So I went over to investigate and darned if that jasmine bush hadn’t wrapped its vines right around the poor ol’ dog!
It’s an alien invasion shaped like jasmine bushes! Get out the sonic screwdriver! Put your phasers on stun!
Oooor, get out a good pair of scissors and cut the dog free.
The vines were literally wrapped right around his middle. I had to lift his legs out of the loops, then cut them away.
