Terrier's day off
“In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded. Terry Pratchett


Thank you everyone who sent congratulations for the anniversary. We had a very low key lunch celebration at our favorite Italian restaurant, L'Artista, came home and fell asleep, were so stuffed we didn't eat anything else until 10pm when there was much tea and toast.

I'll try to answer all the comments after we have walked the dog and done the posting of replies thing.
Gacked from Rescue Remedies Forum


To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.


Dear Dogs and Cats,

  • The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

  • The stairs were not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

  • I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

  • For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years -- canine or feline attendance is not required.

  • The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's bottom. I cannot stress this enough!


    To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:


    To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:


    1. They live here. You don't.
    2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)
    3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
    4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.


    Remember: In many ways, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:


    1. Eat less
    2. Don't ask for money all the time
    3 Are easier to train
    4. Normally come when called
    5. Never ask to drive the car
    6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
    7. Don't smoke or drink
    8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
    9. Don't want to wear your clothes
    10. Don't need a "£gazillion" for university.

    Especially the dishes one. Ron is constantly to be found with his head in a tea mug.

    The bed, bathroom and my parent's stairs are definitely familiar. Just how does a tiny cat manage to take over an entire double bed?

    Happy belated, and have I ever mentioned that I love that your dog is called Ron?

    Thank you.

    have I ever mentioned that I love that your dog is called Ron?
    No, you haven't. What's the reason?

    This: "I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible."

    I thought of your doxies immediately when I read the bed lines.

    Funny how such small dogs make a huge change, isn't it? :D
