strangeguitar: Dogs rule.


Amen!!
My dogs are the only family I have. They never ask "Where have you been?" and they're always glad to see me.

Pray 4 Mojo: Counter_Intelligent: I wish I could get a dog, but I'm worried about leaving it alone for 8+ hours a day...

Duh... get two dogs.

Any other problems I can solve for you?


This was my wife's response to my 5 year old lab being lonly. Now we have a 5 year old yellow lab and a year old chocolate lab. No rest is had at our house... But I love my babies.

Do_Not_Want: Counter_Intelligent: I wish I could get a dog, but I'm worried about leaving it alone for 8+ hours a day...

Agreed. Would love to adopt one, but I feel that I'd be gone too long.


Okay... while I applaud that you both have considered your situation before jumping into adopting a pet (and I'm certainly not trying to talk you into anything)... I gotta say...

Which do you think a dog would prefer?

1. Lounging on the porch... in his dog bed... for 9 hours a day (5 days a week)... looking through the sliding glass door... occasionally getting up to poop... have a drink... chase a squirrel... bark at the mailman or lick his balls.

2. Death.

Pray 4 Mojo: I_Don't_Want_FOP: Bowser is stylin' in his gameday collar and secretly working very hard to keep his butt from sliding away from his front legs on the slick hardwood floor.

Added for truthiness.


Yes, he does that often. Were there some way we could spray some stickum on his butt and get away with it.

Polish Hussar: You didn't happen to inspire "Pet Cemetery," did you?


Alas, no. No ancient Indian burial grounds around here that I know of. No zombies, either.

Oddly enough, however, that book is a major reason for my upbringing on a low-traffic rural dirt road. Mom read it when she was pregnant with either my brother or me. (Can't remember who.) And she decided that little kids and busy paved roads don't mix...

Ahhh... I remember fondly the days of only having 2 dogs. Now I have four, and all are terriers of one sort or another. Life is never quiet. JRT, Irish, Boston/Fox, and this thing, which we have determined is an evil mix of Basenji and JRT...

Do the needful: Counter_Intelligent: Do the needful: Perfect, now Counter_Intelligent has to figure out what to do with them for 16 hours a day.

No. 2 * 8 is 18, genius.

I forgot that the clock runs on base 12. My mistake.

/when will dog people get our own version of Caturday?
//never, because we're not crazy


Muttday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Cursday, Friday, Caturday, Sunday

Since dogs are at least twice as awesome as cats, it's only fair that they get TWO days.

(But not abuse them since as you point out, we're not crazy).

Good looking boys. Thanks for sharing. See... some of us have to live dog ownership vicariously through other Farkers.

Dog people are proud and independent. So are cats. It's a bad match.
