Quilt With Us

My daughter bought me a plaque with the below on it..lot it was hiliarious!

TO ALL NON-PET OWNERS WHO VISIT AND LIKE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT OUR PETS (this can also apply to cat lovers) ...1. They live here, you don't. 2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.) 3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people. 4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks ...on all fours and doesn't speak clearly. Remember: Dogs are better than kids because they: 1. Eat less 2. Don't ask for money all the time 3. Are easier to train 4. Usually come when called. 5. Never drive your car. 6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends. 7. Don't smoke or drink. 8. Don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions. 9. Don't wear your clothes. 10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college and 11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children

Debbie and Aida thanks for those wonderful storie. I loved reading them and Debbie we have done the samething ie: vacs..woods floors the whole nine yards. On top of that raise two kids and I tell ya what our two dogs are easier and cheaper! LOL our great dane/lab named Poppie because of his eyes even sleeps with us and drinks coffee with Paul everyday. Our rat terrier named Shada is actually Alexas but when she's not home she's with us. We wouldn't trade either one. They are part of our family.

We've always had cats and dogs in our household. Cats used to follow my kids home and stay permanently.  We'd pick up stray dogs in our street, and some come back even after the cops have taken them away. I always warn my friends that I have cats and dog when they plan to come over, so they usually call me ahead and I try to vacuum cat's hair off the couch.

I'd rather pay for a pet's well-being rather than pay a psychiatrist a bundle to hear my problems.  When DH would come home from a bad day at work, his cat senses it and just sits at his lap.  I could see DH's face turn from red (due to stress) to natural color as he pats his cat.  Surely beats a can of beer or a slug of gin.

My mom had a liter of males and me. Too bad she didn’t sell a few males. Life would have been soooooo much easier. Dog hair? ARGH….Had two pugs, then purchased leather sofa set, (easy to clean hair off of), installed wood floors, (easy to clean hair off of) packed away all dark clothes and started to wear lots of lights (easy to clean hair off of), should have bought stock in link roller (easy to pick off dog hair with) then purchased a dyson for pets (easy to clean up hair with). It wasn’t like paying for college but close. Eleven years later, with one Yorkie and a Shih-Tzu, and I got a fabric sofa. Even after all this, I’d take those two little hair balls back in a minute. Miss them every day. (PS: I truly believe that pug hair would be the only thing left on earth after a nuclear explosion)

LOL Carol! I truly was laughing too until I started getting private messages but oh well not going to let a few ruin my day and laugh. Isn't ridiculous what college cost!? Haven't had to face that yet. Hope you have a good day too
