Pets Of The Week:
My pal, Melanie, and her roommate Dawn, have a couple of felines that they live with and Melanie was kind enough to send me this picture of Tygie and Floyd. Tygie's the grey one and he only has three legs. That's more than enough legs for any respectable feline, but Melanie says he doesn't get around too well, so Dawn gave him a bath and trimmed his coat the other day. Tygie didn't take to that very kindly even though Dawn was just trying to help. Floyd high-tailed it when he heard Tygie's screams....er, meows for help. You can read more about Tygie and Floyd at Melanies's blog, "Honey!!!! I'm Home!!!!" at http://honeyimhome-honey.blogspot.com/
Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.My pal Dutch, the domestic goddess, has a cute pup named Bambi and evidently Bambi doesn't enjoy walks in the snow. Dutch does a daily walking routine for exercise and she attempted to take Bambi out in the snow for exercise and ostensibly to conduct any personal business she might have on her agenda, but Bambi didn't seem to like that idea. Personally, I can't blame Bambi 'cause I don't like the idea of squatting in the snow under any circumstances. Stop over and say hello to Dutch and Bambi at http://myupsanddownsofeverydaylife.blogspot.com/

The Cat's Meow And Puppy Dog Tales:
Young Chuck, moved to Texas and bought a donkey from a farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. The next day he drove up and said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died." Chuck replied, "Well, then, just give me my money back." The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."
Chuck said, "Ok, then, just bring me the dead donkey." The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him? Chuck said, "I'm going to raffle him off." The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!" Chuck said, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."
A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?" Chuck said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.00."
The farmer said, "Didn't anyone complain?" Chuck said, "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back." Chuck grew up and eventually became the chairman of large corporation that probably received bailout money.
What Is A Cat? Cats do what they want. They rarely listen to you. They're totally unpredictable. When you want to play, they want to be alone. When you want to be alone, they want to play. They expect you to cater to their every whim. They're moody. They leave hair everywhere.
Conclusion: They're tiny women in little fur coats.
What Is A Dog? Dogs spend all day sprawled on the most comfortable piece of furniture in the house. They can hear a package of food opening half a block away, but don't hear you when you're in the next room. They can look dumb and lovable at the same time. They growl when they are not happy. When you want to play, they want to play. When you want to be alone, they want to play. They leave their toys everywhere. They do disgusting things with their mouths and then try to give you a kiss. They go right for your crotch as soon as they meet you.
Conclusion: They're tiny men in little fur coats.
