That was a few days before . So Son 2 shows up for T-Day and I ask him if he brought Scrappy and he says "No" but then immediately gets him out of his coat pocket with a proud poppa smile, and my dog immediately thinks he has a new CHEW toy. So I wisely put both penguins high in my bedroom out of the dog's sight on top of the . Well, Son 2, being a bad pet owner, forgets Scrappy when he goes home a few days later. The next day I get a text message from Son 2 that says "Scrappy doesn't like Ned sitting so close to him" so I move them to opposite sides of the and respond back. I almost shot a photo of them kissing but decided against that.
So a few days later MyWife is headed to by herself and I remind her to take Scrappy to Son 2. Well, I am sitting at the table and as I am busy writing something, I see a " there is one and only one, more Aptenodytes Starbucki. So I decide "Jaws" shark feeding type motion at the edge of the table just inches away (and keep in mind I didn't know MyWife had brought Scrappy in from the bedroom). Milliseconds later the flash of moving colors registers in my brain as "penguin -> rescue now" and I go running into the living room and yell angrily at my dog who is in motion, who suddenly whips around and just happens to let go of Scrappy just enough that I rip him out of the dog's mouth without damaging any fur, just a little saliva stained and soaked. So I scolded the dog and MyWife felt bad about leaving him at the edge of the table, but then I said, "well, Scrappy just about turned into Crappy", and she decided not to tell Son 2 the story, but then later told him anyway.
