Folded_Soup I don't know. How?
2003-04-15 02:32:06 PM  
They're pretty thick-headed, one-thought-at-a-time dogs. Dalmations, that is (pardon my spelling earlier). Spend enough time around one and you can easily picture the scene.

We had this hound when I was a kid we'd keep tied up in a field beside the house on a clothesline so he could move around. He caught sight of something one day and ran like a bastard after it; Until he hit the end of the clothesline. His ass went up in the air from underneath him and he hit the ground upside down. I don't think I've ever heard my dad laugh that hard. (dog was fine)

2003-04-15 03:41:02 PM  
Meshman, that reminds me of my friend's dog. They did the same thing (clipping it to the clothesline). Came home one day to find the basement window smashed out.

The dog hung itself - literally.

While I am definitely an animal lover, I still have to wonder how much of the taxpayers' money went into this complicated-sounding dog rescue.

Stupid dog shouldn't have looked down. If Looney Tunes taught me anything it's that if you don't acknowledge the fact that you are 50,000 ft in mid-air, you can walk back onto solid ground.

2003-04-15 03:55:03 PM  
That cat and dog should learn to live together, despite the inevitable result of such a union.../wink
PS Not all dogs would do this. Those people with dumb dogs have to check out border collies to find some canine intelligence.
2003-04-15 03:58:25 PM  
This is a wonderful story for those of us dealing with the dog vs. cat scenarios. I love dogs, but yes, they can be really, really stupid... We had a dog when I was little that would chase birds into a tree and end up slamming against the tree himself. DUH!!!

In this case, the cat definitely had the upper paw...

Glad the dog is OK, though!

As a few have posted already but worth saying again.....

The first image that popped into my head was Wylie E. Coyote bounding off a cliff as he chased Roadrunner. Still pretty funny.

And I wonder why people at work are looking at me strange as I chuckle to myself - Okay - maybe not

God I hate dogs. I was in the pet the store the other day and they were selling dogs for $700 a pop. Then I looked over at the cat cage and they were $50. After this article, the cat price is looking better and better.

I've owned dozens of cats and dogs over the years and loved them all.

Ah... but if you are looking for a dedicated companion that will give his life for you... You never think cat.
2003-04-15 04:06:58 PM  
cats suck.
2003-04-15 04:07:34 PM  
"Ah... but if you are looking for a dedicated companion that will give his life for you... You never think cat."

So you need that kind of assurance, Focker?...A dog is very easy to break.
2003-04-15 04:07:35 PM  
Last year my stupid mutt spotted a ceramic deer in some guys yard and decided to stalk it. After a couple of minutes of sneaking up behind it, he pounced. At this point he finally realized it was not a real deer. So, without missing a beat he lifted up his leg and pissed on it. Took me five minutes to regain my composure.
2003-04-15 04:12:16 PM

Ignored the first part of my my post did you? Cats are easy to break too. It's all a mater of stimulus response and understanding the animals psychology.

Dogs are loyal pack animals. Once you are the alpha male you can do no wrong.

If you want to read something into my psychology, while ignoring the fact that I've owned and loved many cats, have at it.
2003-04-15 04:12:33 PM  
Dalmations are a little dumber than most dogs.

But dogs are dogs,
and they beat hell out of owning a cat.
2003-04-15 04:13:22 PM  
border collies are smart, but obsessive. mine will sit outside a woodpile that a squirrel disappeared into for a good three weeks, without ever seeing the squirrel again. it's hard to coax her back in to eat, and when she's done, back to the woodpile. or wherever she saw a squirrel weeks before.
2003-04-15 04:13:48 PM  
and they taste better than dogs too
2003-04-15 04:14:59 PM  
it doesn't surprise me it was a dalmation, they aren't the smartest dogs in the world. my old dogs used to climb up cliffs, thought they were damn mountain goats. i think they enjoyed giving me friggin heart attacks.
2003-04-15 04:15:03 PM  
I had a dog once that was chasing a cat. it chased the cat right into the street. my neighbor was driving his pickup down the same road. WAM. the dumb dog ran right into the side of the truck. killed itself. lots of blood. stupid dog. i'm gonna go crawl into the fetel position and cry now.

2003-04-15 04:16:55 PM  
border collies are smart, but obsessive.

I owned a couple border collies as a kid. I grew up on a cattle farm. They are quite hyper and have endless energy. Great dog for a kid in the country.

I've only ever owned one cat that was a breed. That was a Persian. All the rest have been strays of, shall we say, diverse heritage.

I'm shocked noone has mentioned cartoons. In particular, the Looney Toons cartoons. I believe they featured characters who were often chased and falling.

I heard the reason why Dalmations were the original fireman dogs because they were one of the only breeds to willingly jump into a fire.

Go, Pongo!

Cats are smart and Dogs are not.

2003-04-15 04:44:32 PM  
actually it was always the dog that got the worst of it-
case in point: Foghorn Leghorn is always whackin' the dog
in the arse, lets him run to the end of his line, then
paints his tongue green. as kids, Mel Blanc had his summer
home a couple of doors over, and on occasion he'd get us kids up on his porch, and do his characters for us- Early
Comedy gold, left us all hooked to looney tunes for life.

Sven_Burger- sounds like what happened to our friends' dog Moose when a skunk got into their house one time. He immediately bolted downstairs to investigate and all the folks upstairs heard was "WOOFWOOFWOOFWOOFWOOF!!!" *pause* "YIPEYIPEYIPEYIPEYIPE!!!" as he got sprayed. The funny thing is that our own dog was about to run down as well, heard Moose's reaction to the skunk and immediately changed her mind. ;)

AWWWW!!! Cute wittle German Shephard in Kat's post... *pets*

*German Shephard lover* They're highly intelligent, y'know. Unlike those nitwit Dalmations. And don't even get me started on those little yappy dogs. Every time one of those little bastards yap yap yap yap yaps at me I try SO hard to resist the urge to see how far I can make that little farker fly with a good solid kick.
Kat [TotalFark]
2003-04-15 05:26:31 PM  
Actually, Basko is a doll, he can turn his game face on and off with the blink of an eye.

German Shepherds are, in my opinion, one of the best breeds out there. They're hardworking, full of drive, smart, and completely loyal. I wuv them.
2003-04-15 05:32:22 PM  
My daughter, Jenny. Half German Shephard, quarter Chow, quarter Skipperke (sp?). She's not dumb enough to go flying off a cliff. If anything the squirrel would be chasing her. Lord knows I've seen her bolt like mad from a rabbit before. Evil damn bunnies terrorizing my little baby.

I realize its hip to love animals like no tomorrow but has anyone wondered what it cost to rescue this dog? I love animals but this guy should be paying for the rescue. Same with those ding dongs that get stuck on mountains. I dont want to pay for it...

yes thats right hate me now!!!
2003-04-15 05:53:57 PM  
You know, some people have rightly wondered "what it cost to rescue this dog."

I would guess it didn't cost you or I anything more than gas money to drive out there. If the rescue was carried out by fire/rescue personell, it's not like they charge on a per-rescue basis. They get paid for being on duty, whether it's rescuing a dog or sitting at the station, cleaning equipment. It's not like they called in a helicopter or anything...

Our dog decided she was gonna chase a quail in the desert outside our house one day, and silly me, I dropped the leash and let her. She got about an inch from the bird when it ran under a creosote bush. Dog hits the brakes. Runs around the bush to continue the chase. Dog gets close again, this time the bird runs up a cactus.
Guess what... stupid dog tried to follow it. YIPE YIPE!!!! And then she kept trying. I spent an hour plucking cactus spines outta her paw. Dogs are cool, but boy they can be dumb.

Have any of you that share your houses with cats(notice I didn't say owned cats), ever notice that people who hate cats are always very quick to let everyone know it? It seems they are very proud of it.

Daze will sit on the sofa and lick your forehead for hours, it's crazy. She wouldn't stop licking me one time when we were watching Conan...I'd push her away, but she'd come back for more!

Gwinny: Not sure whether you're suggesting that the owner should pay, or that the dog should have been sacrificed, all alone, miserable and abandoned, at the bottom of a cliff ('Cat lover!' he hissed and spat).

I wonder what the true out-of-pocket cost of that rescue was, anyway. Looks to me like it was an opportunity for the firemen, a fixed cost, to do a useful thing. Maybe they burned a few gallons of gas--what else?

We hate your cat. And no, it's not different, it's just like every other cat.
