    Ok, not the best of days River (small dog) was a muppet down the beach, obsessed with a certain woman for no apparent reason after the womans dog stole our ball...so gave up and left sooner than planned

    I got back to my car and discovered I had lost my car keys on the beach :eek:

    I head back....on my way searching a bin I had dropped my poop bag in as I was convinced I dropped them in
    Luck being on my side it was fairly freshly changed and not an exclusively poop bin so nasty...but not hideous:Yuck

    Keys not found I returned to the beach and luck again within 5 mins sighted a lady carrying them and telling everyone she passed they were found and where she was heading to leave them. Lovely lady

    I needed mice for my snake so headed off to the pet supplies store and decided to buy River a Kong Jumbler as she has a ball she cannot pick up she has been wanting to play with recently.
    For those that do not knowa jumbler is a clearish plastic ball with a small kong ball inside to make a noise.
    I pay and hand River the toy, as she does enjoy carrying things.

    .....so walking along two retrievers one with a ball bigger than her head in her muzzle with smaller ball bouncing around inside when this old lady with an elderly terrier stops me and asks in a concerned voice "Is that a hamster in there?"

    What I should have done
    Answered with a laugh
    "No, a small tennis ball type ball"

    What I actually did
    <takes ball and shakes it hard aka the Finding Nemo Darla scene> whilst loudly going "wake up hamster!"

    In my defense....Im having a scaractic type day and it was a wearing few hours
