The Spoon in the Knife Drawer

So, I have the dumbest puppy in the world. I know it sounds mean, but don't get me wrong, I love her, shes just not the brightest crayon in the box (She's about the dullest gray out there).

Anyways, my sister and her boyfriend took her for a walk last night and they decided to let her off the leash because they were about five houses from home. She sniffed around and circled their feet being all good until she saw a June bug. My puppy thinks shes a hunter, except unlike most labs who hunt deer and rabbits, she hunts bugs. Her favorites are June bugs and spiders. She took off after the bug and then realized how close she was to home. At full speed she took off toward our glass storm door not realizing it was shut. After running about 100  yards at full speed she crashed into hit with a loud thud and a heart wrenching yelp. I could hear her across the house. The saddest thing is, that's not the first time she's done that.

Best phrases to describe her (or anybody else dumb):

Swimming in the shallow end of the gene pool

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer

A few fries short of a wacky pack

Not the smartest cookie

A few clowns short of a circus

The wheel is spinning, but the hamster's dead

Elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor

The lights are on, but no one's home

Burned out light bulb

The Lindsey Lohans of the world

And, our personal favorite...
