You know, I have been practicing and I think I've almost perfected that look myself. I'm going to keep practicing because my mother had a "look" that would stop you in your tracks, kind of like Mona's "Look". So I need one of those myself for when I have to deal with the idiotic and just plain stupid.
Probably my favorite pet photo of all time, including the ones of MY babies. Gabriel, I never get tired of you posting it.
INtheGarden, I was sharing your Duke stories with my daughter and she loved them. She thinks its so funny that HE adopted the dog for you.
Pets bring us SO much. It's so hard when they have to go, but they enrich our lives so much. I feel sorry for those people that say: "I'm just NOT an animal person." I think something must be wrong with them because I certainly feel they are missing out on SO much, although they've never had to clean up dog yak from a freshly changed bed. I mean no offense to anyone that isn't an "animal person" (which they probably wouldn't read this thread anyway), but I just do NOT understand it. Despite dog yak and stolen waffles, my dogs have been my greatest source of joy and comfort. (don't tell my husband or my daughter) probably because they CAN'T talk. And they love us no matter what. And they dont' get upset when you eat the last cookie or fart in bed. And they don't laugh when you're naked.
Yep, our pets are just about perfect.
