Danny and the Viking Funeral

Danny and the Viking Funeral


I’m not too happy with humankind at the moment, but I’ll say hello anyway. My name is Danny. To my legions of fans I am known as Danny the Dog.

Today I want to talk about my human. His name is Andrew and he is a real idiot! Andrew wants a Viking funeral. Do you know what a Viking funeral consists of? I didn’t think so, and neither did I until Andrew opened his big yap!

When a Viking died, they put him on his boat, set it afire and pushed it out into the fjord. Oh . . . and one more thing, they killed his dog and laid him at the feet of the dead Viking just so the guy could have his dog with him in Valhalla!

I mean . . . what the hell? What had the poor pooch done to warrant a death sentence?

I had a talk with Andrew last night and told him that if I went first into the “good night,” then I too want a Viking funeral. His buddies should kill him and put him at my feet before they set the boat ablaze.

And guess what? Big surprise, he didn’t think that was such a good idea. So we agreed to just have a simple non-denominational service regardless of who goes first. But if he keeps up with this Viking funeral stuff, it will probably be him . . . I’ll make sure of it.

BTW: Anyone leaving a comment will hear from me, Danny the Dog, personally, as long as the comment states how wonderful and charming I am. And if you want to throw in what a great story teller I am, I won’t argue…Danny

  1. Danny, you are indeed wonderful, charming, and a great storyteller. And I’m putting my money where my mouth is by sharing this on all my pages. Stand your ground with Andrew. All of us are behind you 🙂
