It's taken them about 5000 years to train us.

Kevin Potter, the Box Elder County Sheriff's deputy, who wasn't shot, said: "(The dog) did something to make the gun discharge. I don't know if the safety device was on. It's not impossible the dog could have taken it off safety.A

Accident, my arse; I would expect this from a cat, but most dogs that I know do not hold a grudge or a vengeful spirit (unless it is towards someone that harmed their family). I guess the lesson is to never piss off your dog if he knows how to operate the safety on your gun.

Your dog wants jacketed hollowpoints and 3-dot sights.

You'll deliver that steak if you know what's good for you.

His Majesty demands that you give Him two bags of Beggin' Strips per week, along with the usual tennis ball, as a sign of fealty.

Hey, Mongbiohazarad! Have you previously posted and mentioned the novel "City" ?? I'd like to thank you, if it was you. Reading that book cleared up a 40-year-old mystery in my life. My dad had read the story about adapting to Jupiter ( forget which tale it was) on a plane in the late 60s, and said it was the best story he ever read. But he thought Isaac Asimov wrote it! So in the meantime I've read all of Asimov, and no Jupiter story. My love for dogs and robots made your post catch my eye, so I bought the book (best book I've read in a long time!) and lo and behold! There was the Jupiter story! After 40 years! So, Mongbiohazard, I don't know you, but I love you!

On the way to work I saw a sign advertising a lost cat. It's name was "Thumbs". Looking at the photo, you could see why it was named Thumbs. It was one of those cats with extra digits, which were large and looked like a thumb relative to the regular paw.

Cats are apparently well advanced in their secret plot to evolve opposable thumbs. When they do, they will be able to work the electric can-opener and will enslave us all (I mean the non-cat people--they already have enslaved the cat-people).

I think that would be a good plot for Cat & Dogs III. Thanks to the delightfully catty Ms. Bette Midler, the second Cat & Dogs movie was pretty good.

It's well-known in evolutionary circles that humans evolved the ability to walk upright, use tools and make fire before we evolved big brains. Cats will obviously replicate this success by getting thumbs and then getting big heads to deal with their new-found ability to turn doorknobs and use tools.

I saw a cat "using a fork" on the web this week, but it was fake: the fork had a long handle and somebody was holding it--the cat was just guiding the fork--it couldn't really hold it.

I think we had better keep an eye on our pets. There is evidence that living with humans makes them smarter and teaches even the old dogs new tricks.

The Planet of the Canines would be nothing to the Planet of the Felines or the Planet of the Parrots.

That would be one noisy and annoying planet, that one.

And now the News for Parrots ... the arms race between domestic animals suffered another set back this week when humans developed a way to tell if you are a dog on the Internet by adapting the device that warns you of "cat-like typing" to "dog-like typing". Fortunately, the ability of parrots to order fruit bouquets and bird seed by telephone is not affected by this development.

I think cats are ahead in this arms race. A dog may be able to shoot you with your own gun, but a cat can ruin your credit and leave prawn on your computer.

"Two men on opposite ends of earth have each been shot by their dog"

Two men on opposite ends of the earth shared ownership of a single dog?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. That felt good.
