Flora Zimbelman says it all started 54 years ago when she put an uncooked hot dog in her sister’s suitcase.
“I don’t know what made me do it. The devil I guess,” she said.
Flora’s sister, Rose, found the hot dog when she opened the suitcase back up in Idaho, where she lived at the time.
“She mailed it back to me telling me to keep my garbage at home,” said Flora.
The game was on.
In the years that followed, Flora would find a way to sneak the hot dog back into Rose’s life. And Rose would find another way to sneak it back to Flora.
“I found it under my pillow once, I found it in between the drapes and once I found it in the kitchen drawer,” said Flora.
Flora still has that hot dog. It looks just about as disgusting as you might expect.
Yet, earlier this year, Flora’s sister, best friend, and victim of her continuous pranks, lost her battle with cancer.
Flora says she misses her friend, and even though it’s difficult to look at, she’ll still show you the hot dog and tell you the story behind it.
My little bitch is pert near a year old. lets just say July 4th. So we have put up with her for 9 months. it has been a tough 9 months. She attacked Theresa, got in scuffles with Maggie, chewed up some stuff, and destroyed a waterbed. But mostly she has filled our hearts with joy.
She is an excelent trail doggie. She loves the trail and has gone on 11 mile rides before. She does not really care about sticking by me when with a large group of riders, but she pretty much sticks with the group. Although a bit bigger than Maggie she seems to see Maggie as the dominant one and fills the house with puppy playfulness.
She is now free to roam the house and not be locked up in a kennel when we leave them in the house alone. Couple shoes have been chewed, but nothing else really. And I would hate to be a burglar who met her. She looks pretty menacing and can be bitey.
We gonna make her a meat pie and frost it with lard
