I completely forgot about this thread! After losing Daisy, my family decided that we needed to rescue another dog. We found a year old black lab named Coda. He has been wonderful, our house just felt empty without a dog present. However, nobody seemed to inform him that at 72 lbs he probably shouldn't be a lap dog.
This isn't my dog, but it's my brothers, and she's like the hound in Fox in the Hound when you play with her or she's around you. Also, she has a crazy notion that she's a lapdog as she'll barrel down the stairs and then jump on you as you're laying on the couch to say hello when she first arrives. She weighs like 180 now and it hurts like hell when she lands on your nuts.
He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.
This is Pig The Wonder Cat. He's about 14 now, got him just after his eyes were open and his mama met an unfortunate demise. Bottle fed him for what seemed like an eternity. He's blind in one eye. Cantankerous. Big personality. My constant companion. Only the fireplace can be a bigger draw than my lap or beside me in bed. (Fireplace is right beside the Christmas tree, so this is his little Holiday Heat Cave)
Our hearts broke into a million pieces tonight as Pig The One Eyed Wonder Cat drifted off to sleep and awoke in the big catnip patch in the sky. If you see me at the Shade Tree Short Course tomorrow and I'm a little weepy, well, now you know why.
"It's a jungle out there kiddies. Have a very fruitful day.
