Fur Coats

Minicapt sent me a link to a humorous piece at Theo Spark.

This is my counter (not my words, it's old).

Observations made about dogs:

1. Dogs lie around all day sprawled on the most comfortable piece of furniture in the house.
2. They can hear a package of food opening half a block away, but don't hear you when you're in the same room.
3. They can look dumb and lovable all at the same time.
4. They growl when they are not happy.
5. When you want to play they want to play.
6. When you want to be alone they want to play.
7. They are great at begging.
8. They will love you forever if you rub their tummies.
9. They leave their toys everywhere.
10. They do disgusting things with their mouths and then try to give you a kiss.

Conclusion: They're tiny men in little fur coats.

We're currently digesting a new dog. It is lovely with reservations. Skid marks on the doona, regular solid and wet deposits on all levels of the house, security exposure because two key doors have to remain open 24/7 so that the poor animal can go outside to do its thing which it rarely does. On the plus side it is more loving than the cat, although the cat has a brain, the dog is driven by a highly revved double AA battery and is void of anything resembling a cognitive motor. Anyway you get the picture. If anyone wants a dog for a short or long term sabbatical pse contact me via this blog. Thanks Kae. Mehaul

ps freight is free.

I would say that most men would need vast improvement to qualify as dogs. Dogs always love what you cook. Dogs are always happy to see you when you come home. Dogs never get drunk and say stupid things to your mother.

Thanks, Mehaul, but I've just passed that stage with Floyd. Dang. Shoulda got a picture of him on the weekend. He's still too smart.
He now knows that he's not allowed to gallop inside as soon as I open the door. He's a water baby, loves the water. Still have to get one of those clamshell pool thingies for him. He keeps swimming in the big dogs' water. Yuk! That's the next thing on the training list.

I had a husband once, Anon 2. He used to complain that the dog ate better than him. This was in the days that rump steak could be bought for only $5/kilo. If it was rubbish the dog would get it (it was cryovac rump), if it was good we'd eat it. Sometimes it was food for all of us.
The dog I had then used to be fed Good O's, he'd only eat them when he was hungry. Later on I'd feed him tinned food. Now I'm sure the husbastard would have had something to complain about had I fed him Pal. It's not even real good quality, full of water!

The idiot who threw shoes at GWBush (who dodged brilliantly and laughed it off: 'Size 10!') called him a 'dog'. That's a compliment. Dogs are more reliable than humans, grateful and heroic. Watch this amazing video of a dog saving its friend:

Hi Bruce!
The problem with the shoes incident was that the press seems to have ignored that throwing shoes in the ME is the worst insult (like turning the sole of your foot at someone when talking with them... dunno how it works at prayer, though).
They're all banging on about the thrower aiming for his head.
Just the fact that he threw shoes is the insult.

I love my dogs.
