I think Licorice would mourn herself to death. For whatever reason, she absolutely adores me, and will sit by the door all day, if I am gone all day. Usually, my wife is the object of this level of adoration; this is the first time, for me.
Now I see what this is all about. Proud pet owner. You do realize I hope, that man has over bread these social parasites for his own narcissistic gratification?
I love poodles. Never had a full size one like yours, but a miniature one named Napoleon and then years later Archie, an amber medium sized cockapoo, and a pair of black miniature sweethearts, Bert and Ernie who were Snoodle brothers . I' had a Cocker Spanial, Cast Golden Ruffian(Ruff), one Boxer, Samantha Soubrette(Sam), a couple of Shepherds. Now, I only have two cats, Maggie(Mags) and Tammy or Tubby(Tubs). Almost forgot Sledge(Mickymooks, Wiggie, Wig-A-Muffin), a wonderful small tortoise shell cat who lived18 years and Ladybug(Bug, Bugdog), a beautiful spotted Cocker. She lived 15 years. When I lived as a bachelor in my early 20's I kept a couple large fantail Goldfish. They greeted me every day when I came home from work as a sculptor for Whitehorse Mold Co.Had them for 6 years, I should also mention a fabulous Peach Faced Lovebird, named Buddy. That was one cool pet, sooo smart!
Neither kittens nor puppies remain so for long. So let's talk cats & dogs.
Cats believe they own the space they keep(you have to kick em), but dogs get out the way. Cats maintain but a fraction of the loyalty dogs exhibit. Cats use a litter box, which is way cool, but dogs bark at strange noises and even bite bad people, unless it's a bad dog. Cats are cleaner than dogs and are fun to watch, but not anywhere as fun to play with as dogs are. It's debatable, but as I see it, dogs make you feel loved far better that cats, but you must groom dogs, yet never cats. Dogs are phenomenal at perceiving your moods and even anticipate your next move. Dogs listen for the sound of your car brakes near a mile away and sit at the door, anticipating your arrival and if you do something stupid and unfeeling as to drop your dog off a hundred miles away from its home, just to get rid of the poor loyal beast, it will spend its life finding its way back.
If you live in a rural area, get a dog. Metropolitan areas, where you must keep your pet on a leash and pick up it's poop, get a cat. Live in a city like NY? Stick with fish. I suggest large golden fantail goldfish and just two of them.
I don't do well with cats and their litter boxes. And cats don't like ME unless they belong to someone else. Cats are supposed to be very intelligent and similar to human beings in behavior. Now, isn't that just a little too SCARY???
I love dogs and horses. I was born in the Year of the Dog. One of those years, anyway. If I don't have a dog(s) in my life, I can't say that I am truly happy.
During the assimilation of a domestic death scene, when there are pet cats in the house, the forensic team will determine how long the deceased has been dead by how much the house cat has eaten of the lips, nose and eyelids. Should it be any mystery why a cat is always staring at you when you awaken in the middle of the night? They are awaiting your eventual death to dine.
Dogs are often found dead along the side of their owners from grief.
Is that why kitties jump on your face when you are trying to sleep? Awaiting the kill? Yeah, it is creepy to wake up and find kitty staring at you with bug eyes. But to blow your info out of the water, I knew of man in town whose dog made him dinner. For about a month, the poor thing had no way out of the house when his master (a hermit) expired.
My cat Zoe loves to walk around the house with her pet squirrel and cry sadly and then puts it in my shoe or near the closed door I am behind. I am guessing it is similar to my one cat I had years ago that would catch...
Do dogs possess rights? Should we protect puppies, as we protect human children, but then recognize independence when they become adults? Or should they always be considered personal property, to do with as we wish?
I had a lady the other day in her 70'a say to me I just bought a poodle mix for $450. She goes this is ridiculous when I was a kid we called these mutts and gave them away. LOL she has a point should these...
