    Reminds me of cats giving their owners "the stink-eye"...AKA "You
    CAN'T be talking to me!!" <G>. I even saw a picture (obviously
    Photoshopped), of the cat "flipping its owner off". <G>

    Oh yeah, very true.. we see it here often. We have two dogs from the same litter, Sophie, the female is the obvious alpha. Indy, the male, gets the severe stink-eye (sometimes accompanied with "snarly curly lip") from Sophie every time he -thinks- to go near her food dish.

    She is so much smaller than him, it is comical :) but he runs when she does that :) :) He looks like a yellow lab pretty much, she looks like ... hmm... I dunno! Maybe the face/head of a daschound, but taller... got me. Our vet pronounced them 'true american mutts' when we took them in for shots, etc. Meanwhile the rescue center we purchased them from called them "yellow lab mix pups" haha in their dreams maybe :)

    Take care,
    Janis

    Hi Daryl,

    Hi, Janis...

    The dogs can be the same way. <G>

    Oh yeah, very true.. we see it here often. We have two dogs from the same JK>litter, Sophie, the female is the obvious alpha. Indy, the male, gets the JK>severe stink-eye (sometimes accompanied with "snarly curly lip") from Sophie
    every time he -thinks- to go near her food dish.

    Before we moved to central Arkansas from south Florida over 41 years
    ago, the older cat was fed on this table. Well, the younger upstart cat
    didn't care for her food (even though it was the same as the older cats
    food), and decided to jump up on that table, while the other one was
    still there. I thought World War III was going to start right then, and
    there. <G>

    She is so much smaller than him, it is comical :) but he runs when she does
    that :) :) He looks like a yellow lab pretty much, she looks like ... hmm..
    dunno! Maybe the face/head of a daschound, but taller... got me. Our vet JK>pronounced them 'true american mutts' when we took them in for shots, etc. JK>Meanwhile the rescue center we purchased them from called them "yellow lab JK>pups" haha in their dreams maybe :)

    Dachshunds are so sneaky, and such stinkers...in more ways than one. I
    had gotten out of the shower, and hadn't gotten dressed yet. Next thing
    I knew, it was <LICK!>. I screamed "Fritz!! You horny bastard!!". His response?? <WAG!> :P

    Another time, I had just brought him back from a walk, and I heard
    this whiff of air. I said "Fritz!! You didn't!!"....then, the stench of
    an SBD fart got to my nose...and I said "You did!". His response??
    <WAG!> :P

    So, the next time we went to the vet, I asked him "Why do dogs do
    that??". When he replied "Well, he's a dog!!" (duh!)...and I said "Well,
    he don't look like no d@mn cat, doc!!". To which, grinning, the vet
    replied "Correct. That'll be $250, please". :P

    haha.. :) Exactly the right wording for that from what I remember :)

    Meanwhile, my daughter and her boys now own a dog. She's a really cute dog.. not a full-bred - she's all white with slight splotches of light color here and there.. and goblin ears (her terms haha). She's suspected to be part Whippet.. such a good natured girl :)

    Hi, Janis...

    Welcome to all and feel free to post your loves, your hates, your problem
    your joys regarding your cats, your dogs and just about any pets (well, JK>>> we can exclude pet rocks? <bg>)

    Oh, my own pet rock. I will call him George, and hug him, and squeeze
    him, and pet him... <BG>

    haha.. :) Exactly the right wording for that from what I remember :)

    Well, there are 2 reasons for that.

    First, I saw a drama group perform "Of Mice And Men", by John
    Steinbeck, at the University Of Miami, in Coral Gables, Florida, 45
    years ago, at a theatre arts festival. In the scene near the end, where
    Lenny is "shot" in the back of the head by the other character (I forget
    his name), the acting was so good that it stunned the entire theatre.

    Second, several of the Looney Tunes (Warner Brothers) and some of the
    Tex Avery cartoons had "Lenny" (I think he was the mentally challenged character) as part of skits. One of the Looney Tunes had it with "The Abominable Snowman" with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. The Tex Avery one
    had a deal with "Screwy Squirrel" (a new little friend). :P

    Meanwhile, my daughter and her boys now own a dog. She's a really cute dog..
    not a full-bred - she's all white with slight splotches of light color here JK>there.. and goblin ears (her terms haha). She's suspected to be part Whippe
    such a good natured girl :)

    Whippets are also known as "minature greyhounds". They are hard to
    housebreak and are high strung (just like dachshunds). Unlike the
    dachshund, the whippet seldom barks. But, both make excellent watchdogs,
    and are very loyal to their owners.

    We had a male that we gave to greyhound breeders in Harrison in
    northwest Arkansas several years ago. They had brought a bitch down, so
    they could get acquainted. Well, the dog we had, named Bullet, tried to
    make love to this bitch, and she told him (in so many words) that she
    wasn't interested in his advances. <G> But, he seemed so sexually
    frustrated that "he wanted to whip-it out". :P

    Janis,

    we can exclude pet rocks? <bg>)

    Except when the cat decides to hide its toys in them, and swears it
    doesn't have any toys to play with. <G>

    Maybe my cats are big enough to toss rocks to play with them, but I don't think so... :)
