    That is what she is saying MRD. Nobody does not like dogs. That's how I take it. I don't think you realized she is Filipino and a bit of a language barrier exists.

    If you've never seen a dog of this size standing on a kitchen table or counter you really can't appreciate how it takes your breath away when you walk in on it.



    Gabriel, all of our dogs (and Clara the kitty when she was still with us ) love the Merrick products!

    I don't know what images are funnier - Gabriel's cat raiding the refreigerator and the pantry, or Bunny's large dog hanging out on a countertop!!
    Animals do provide us with some really funny moments, don't they?

    I remember years ago when my Persian cat, Dex, got his head stuck in a Kleenex Boutique tissue box! He kept trying to wrangle his head out of it by hitting the box / his head underneath against the walls, counters, etc. Needless to say, we tried not to laugh too hard.
    It was like a scene out of I Love Lucy when she gets the loving cup stuck on her head!

    norealityhere, What a great story. I remember that episode of I Love Lucy. Very funny indeed.

    I decided yesterday I had enough of the many toys Louie has. Its all our fault, we're always buying him a toy. Well its gotten out of hand. I sorted through them all, put them all in a large garbage bag leaving plenty for him to play with, and left the bag in my bedroom. I was going to take it to the laundry room to wash them all and give some to the humane society. He has a huge basket in the living room full of toys that he can help himself to.

    Later that afternoon, I heard ruffling sounds. I went to check and sure enough, there's Louie with his head stuck inside the bag! He tipped the bag over and was bascially scrounging for toys. It scared me that he was playing in a plastic bag, and once I said "What are YOU doing". He backed out of the bag, and looked at me, as if to say "What, they are my toys and I want the one at the very bottom".

    Why is it that you can have so many toys lying around, but they always want the ones you put away??

    Thanks, Guardian.

    Our animals are just like our kids. They always want the oldest / yuckiest / threadbare things.

    Re: For animal lovers

    Question for the dog owners on here. How do you get a dog to quit barking so much? Roxie barks at everything. Any little noise sets her off into a barking fit, and then she'll walk around for a couple of minutes going "boof... boof" Just a quiet kind of bark, then she'll settle down until the next noise and it starts all over again. I tell her no, that doesn't seem to work at all. I've taken a newspaper and smacked it against my hand and the loud noise usually startles her and gets her attention off what she's barking at for the moment, but the next noise gets her going again. I have no experience with this because our last dog only barked if someone actually knocked on the door, and in his final year or so, he didn't even do that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon
