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

Maria, it is a funny plaque, and we all laughed!  Really!  Don't worry.  The one that really struck me funny was #10.  We have just lived through the "gazillion dollars for college" bit.  Whew!  And I still think my cat is smarter than my kid!  Have a good day.

Oops, sorry....oh, brother....not private messages...that's just silly....

My day - I just met the most verbally abusive woman that walks the face of the earth today!  That was at work unfortunately and my job is to spend several minutes a day with her in therapy and taking it without so much as blink - and of course with a smile!  I can do that because I understand BUT I am telling you - I am drained!  What a day......(smile).

Maria - LOL!  I know, I know!  I am laughing!  Of course, the sign has nothing to do with the cleanliness of your home!  Of course you wouldn't hurt anyone's feelings!  Silly girl - we all get that...LOL!   I just thought it was a funny thought that one could request an invite out (to their animal free zone) and that it would have to be tolerated (back the same way) This is not being communicated well at all...hahaha...so I will just stop - have a wonderful day! :)

Oh and if you ever came to my house you'd never know that I have 2 dogs that live inside. It doesn't smell and you won't see fur flying thru the air. Now I have to say I have been to peoples homes that the smell would knock you out. lol

Well Vic I don't have a problem with visitors that don't like animals. I put them outside to make the human visitor more comfortable. And the plaque will be hung in my stairwell, so no visitors will see it. I'm not the kind to hurt peoples feelings. Just thought the plaque was funny and wanted to share with all of you and maybe just maybe give some a laugh. Honestly all my family and my closest friends all have either dogs or cats or both. Trying to think of someone I know that doesn't have an a dog or cat inside!! LOL

It IS funny, Maria.  I hope you didn't take my comment made in jest as criticism.  I sure didn't mean it that way at all.  I've heard some people say they'd rather have pets in the home than other people's kids, so I was always too afraid to tell guests they couldn't bring their pets into my home for fear they'd tell me I couldn't bring my kids into theirs!  haha!
