Happiness is a long run

I want one!

But I'm not allowed. I'm working on a feline compromise.

Stupid allergies.

Awesome. I'm glad I found another blogger who owns dogs. Seems like everyone else is about cats.. Razib at gnxp, Brian at laelaps, Carlo at Musings of a Mad Biologist..

Damn cats
Hurray dogs!

CAD-- If it makes you feel any better, last night I went out to dinner-- and I came home to find:
1) The shredded remnants of a 2lb bag of dog treats (luckily, no vomit)
2) My folded laundry strewn about the bedroom
3) All the contents of my gym bag arranged around the TV, including my umbrella (opened. I dont know how he did that)
4) A puppy sound asleep in my bed, sprawled out on his back after he made a nest out of all of my blankets/sheets/pillows

I dont know if a cat is capable of making a mess that big in 2 hours :P

Chris-- Chad Orzel at Uncertain Principles! He even has a 'dog' post tag! And he adopted his pup too!
I gotta admit, Im not much of a cat person. I can handle kittens, and Siamese cats- But I hate how cats dont 'play.' Or when they run and hide? I hate that. I need a social pet :)

Hey, I'm a dog person too!

As far as the destruction, I've crate trained all my dogs, and it works like a charm. They whine a bit the first few nights, but once they get used to it, they're so much better (even when I leave them out if I go out).

Cats can be social - it's very individual though.

Personally, I'm a cat person, but I don't mind dogs.

Oh, they're capable all right. They can just never be bothered.

Pictures like that melt what's left of my poor foxbrain and leave me saying 'Puuuuuhhhppy!' in a stupid voice.

Cute cute cute. So happy.

Tara-- I forgot about your little guy! I tried to crate-train Arnie first thing, but he doesnt handle it well. Hes scared to death of it :(

kris-- If cats played fetch or wrestled Id like them more, but life cant suck when youre holding a fluffy kitten hehehe!

Bob-- Im fairly certain Arnie + cat could team up to level my apartment :P

Foxy-- I wish I could get a pic of him riding in the car- Its that grin times 100 :)
And somebody just dumped him on the side of the road when he was a baby. *sigh*

I like both cats and dogs. Can't have cats due to allergies in the family. So we've got Larry

Puppy, puppy, puppy! Love the tongue resting on the cushion. I've got two rescue pups, a male lab/golden mix and a female Rhodesian ridgeback/terrier mix. Life is better with dogs.
