The Tax Dog Cometh

Well folks, Dad has been grumpy.  It has to do with something called taxes.  He goes through this every year.  This time around Sherman decided to try and help.
If I Look Smart, I Can Do Taxes
A Tax Form
"Where Are The Deductions For Dog Biscuits?"
After about fifteen minutes Sherman barked "What the pup?  No deductions for Dog Biscuit!  Argg, my Brain is going fuzzy!"  He got up walked away and left Dog Dad alone to figure out taxes.  Dog Dad finished Friday night and was a good mood.  Saturday morning we head to the post office to mail them and the post office looked like a scene out of CSI.  That funny yellow tape with black letters was all over the building entrances.  We didn't end up mailing our letter to the IRS Saturday. 
Essex Chilling Out
When we got home Dog Dad read the paper to us.  Somebody had sent a threatening letter containing a strange powder to our post office on Friday.  The building was shut down, and guys dressed in yellow suits with masks visited our post office.  If we were there, we would have been a barking at those funny dressed guys.  Dog Dad told us the FBI is looking into the incident.  Bowser, the G-Men are no nonsense hooomans.  If you want to read about it, here are links to an article in the Key West Paper and a NBC Miami piece.  We don't imagine those links will stay active long.  Any how, Dog Dad was happy we don't live by the Post Office.

With taxes done Dad can get back to the important things like reading e-mail and all your posts.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Sherman

Yikes, that's pretty scary! Last weekend the police arrested some people for having explosive devices in a high rise downtown here in Edmonton. Most be the time of year! Good try Sherman, on doing the taxes. Tax time makes us all want to run away!!

I don't blame poor Sherman for walking away....maybe next year, huh boy? but u do look spiffy in those glasses! I think there's an itemized deduction for all things cheddar and peanut butter on one of the lines, though BOL :-) There was no scary scene at the P.O. when I went to mail my taxes last night, but the giant potholes in their pavement could've swallowed my car whole. Looked more like meteor strikes than potholes, and I'm not kidding! We braved yet another tax season....until next year, doggies :-)

Have a super week!
