Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Dawn of the Wiener Dog

This morning, as I was finishing my coffee and getting ready to go to the gym, I heard a bloodcurdling scream come from the back yard.

The building’s new owner decided that what the back patio really needed was some trees, and the guys who were doing the digging ran across a skeleton.

Once everyone had calmed down, we figured out that it was a dog skeleton and surmised that the building’s former owner had been burying her dead dogs in the yard – which, in case you were wondering, is illegal in Los Angeles.

Later, one of the older neighbors confirmed this and added that there are probably 5 or 6 dogs buried back there… somewhere.

If only they’d come back to life. Then my backyard would be like a George A. Romero movie. With dachshunds.

How awesome would that be?

    Peggy sez: Oh, c’mon.. it’d be so cool:

    “Yap yap yap”
    “OW! My ankle!”

    The building’s former owner being the woman who went insane next door and thought the wiring was spying on her?

    And who exactly are these tree planters who let out blood curdling screams when they run across dog bones?Unemployed extras from low budget, bad gay comedies?

    Peggy sez: Yes, that former owner. And these are fairly macho landscaping guys. I guess digging up an unexpected skeleton will freak anyone out.

    I used to live in a remote area of Northern LA County, and one day excitement filled the dirt streets. Two skeletons had been discovered in an old septic tank! A human and a dog. The dog skeleton helped solve the case-it was attached to a little wheeled device, and long time neighbors remembered a dachshund who had lost the use of his back legs, and his owners made him a kind of wheelchair so he could get around. His owners had disappeared more than a decade earlier. One murdered the other (and the dog) and put them both in the septic tank.

    Peggy sez: Freaky!

    I now have visions of weiner-dogs rampaging through the streets of Los Angeles, victims lying in the streets, holding their ankles in agony, and a big brawny action hero coming over the horizon to save the day.

    It. Is. Awesome.

    I’ve only know one weiner doggie and that was when I lived in Frisco, Tx. That dog was spoiled.
