Insect repellent? Are you sure that’s what it’s for?




Good Luck! Bet it don't taste the same in a can ?




Soooo refreshing!




Hope that's not the scent!!!!




What are you looking at me for ?




Mine's Happy anyway!




So much better than old, stale ‘cok’!




I really shouldn’t find this funny...




Wow! MEGAPUSSI!!!!




Hard to refuse! What the hell is that picture of!




And they said it couldn’t be bottled. Color is a worry though!

If I didn't have a dog or cat......

Monday, January 07, 2013


I could walk around the yard barefoot.



My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated?

All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of hair.



When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't sound like a kennel.



When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me there.

I could sit on the couch and my bed the way I wanted, without taking into consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get comfortable.



I would have money, and no guilt to go on a real vacation.

I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn grandkids through college.



The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave it ALONE.

My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or barriers.



I would not talk 'baby talk.' 'Eat your din din.' 'Yummy yummy for the tummy'...

My house would not look like a day care center, toys everywhere.



My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats and an extra leash.



I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L, W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, O-U-T, G-O

R-I-D-E, C-O-O-K-I-E

I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside.



I would not look strangely at people who think having ONE dog/cat ties them down too much.



I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading 'mud' season.

I would not have to answer the question... 'Why do you have so many animals?' from people who will never have the joy in their lives of knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to an ANGEL as they will ever get.



How EMPTY my life would be!

    All of these are so true. I'm still finding leaves in my house and the trees are bare around here. I've got to add this one; "I would be able to get up from my chair when I wanted without having to sit there because I didn't want to disturb the cat/dog sleeping on my lap."

    I enjoyed a trip to China some years ago and took pictures of many "lost in translation" signs. I thought it was interesting to see signs saying "Don't spit anywhere" until I realized the sign over the water fountain at MY gym here in the US ALSO says "Please do nit spit in the fountain." So I guess that is universal. emoticon
