Speaking of pets, here's my Jess getting lathered up and having a bath today...er minus the bath.

Your Jess is a great looking pup.
Reminds me very much of my old girl when she was a little heavier. She hated baths. She would have that same look "I'm tolerating this because it seems to bring you pleasure, but beware, you are about to get soaked too, hehe".

Have applied for a new stray adoption named "Wawa" and are scheduled to pick her up Saturday. Here's her bio:

Discovered rummaging through a dumpster for food one night, Wawa was rescued and was soon wolfing down two cats of Fancy Feast in her new foster home and purring up a storm. When you first see Wawa in action you realize she is no ordinary cat. WaWa resembles the Ocicat, a domestic breed which looks like a spotted wild cat, the Ocelot, but has no wild DNA. Wawa has a large, muscular body and extremely long curling tail of the Ocicat. She also exhibits all the alertness, confidence and self-assertiveness of that breed. Ocicats are considered to have the spirit of a dog in a cats body and Wawa certainly fills that bill. She is terrific with other cats but feels compelled to run the show at times. Whether being the center of attention, or just being her usual whirlwind self, she is a delight to watch. She will fetch objects and has trained herself to do tricks like jump on her fosters shoulder. Wawa is high energy and is not for someone wanting a couch potato cat. She would be best with a cat-saavy owner who will appreciate her outgoing nature.

FYI, Wawa is a chain of gas station/convenience stores in the Mid-Atlantic region, kind of like 7/11 or White Hen, but better. Not sure if we'll keep the name, but it's kind of catchy.
It's always interesting introducing a new cat into the household, I'll let you know how it goes assuming it's not like the "Pinky the Cat" video.

Yeah, yeah, yeah! When she can fill the wood box by carrying logs in her mouth from the wood heap I'll be impressed, until then it's dogs for me.

(Seriously, nice cat you got there Brian....just don't tell anyone I said that. Right?)

I'll think of you when the neighbor mutt madly humps his owner's leg or barks insanely until it foams at the mouth at the kid with severe cerebral palsy that is pushed by our house each day. There's a "Pinky the Cat" in every breed...

I hate dogs and they hate me. I don't know what it is, but dogs have always disliked me. Occasionally I'll come across a calm dog. When that happens, I like them. But most of the time they just want to try and bite me.

My wife loves cats. She had a few growing up and wants us to adopt a few. I don't mind them so much, so it looks like I'll be a cat owner soon.

Wonder why they hate you?

I have the opposite experience in that dogs seem to like me and I think they can sense that I like them too. Then again it may be something as simple as scent? I think they can smell fear and I know they will smell doggie smells on you if you have a dog.

First thing Jessie does when I get home is give me a good sniff to see if I have been unfaithful to her with another dog!

Come to think of it I think Gael works on that same principle????

I had a fairly traumatic experience with a vicious little dog when I was about 3 or 4. I'd be fine in the same situation now, but I think It's made me fear all dogs. I remember a few years ago, I was with a friend and we bumped into his dog, who was very aggressive towards me. He thought it was funny and started encouraging the dog. I ended up telling him to control the thing. If he didn't, and the dog went to far, it was getting kicked.

I really despise cruelty towards animals. One of the very few dogs I am okay around is my friends dog Cassie. She was rescued from the side of the motorway(highway), tied to a fence with her legs broken. If every dog was as even tempered as little Cassie, I would be glad. However, I recently decided that if a dog goes to far with me, it will be hit. Not hard enough to injure it, but hard enough to let it know not to mess with me.

Another example was my other friends greyhound. I went over to their house and the thing just went for me. He put it away in the kitchen. Whenever I went near the kitchen door, the dog just ran into the door head first and fell over. Wait a few seconds and it would do it again. I really don't know what it is about dogs, but they just go for me.

knows I have Chronic Fatigue & a Jack Russell, so from the social club's Easter bbq, he left a pig's intact spine & ribcage in a sack on my doorstep. Some dissembly required.
The already full freezer compartment in my fridge is 2' cubed, & I was completely unprepared for the "gift" so I threw it on the back lawn & let the dog & the flies battle it out.
If I had a Border Collie would he give me a steer's skeleton?

Apart from pit bulls, bred for killing other dogs. I'm thinking of saving up for an Airedale, to join my diving knife, as part of the canine arms race, to counter the thug or fool-owned killer dogs in my neighbourhood.
