Another canine addition to the family!

Last Sunday mom and I went down to see my little bro's new condo. He decided we should go look at puppies. So we headed over to the new PAWS facility..and look who he brought home!

That would be Wrigley (brought home to feline brother Altoid).

He's a 7 month old mutt. And SUCH a sweetie..most of the time. He's not very socialized with other animals so he barks at other dogs and his new brother. Though yesterday when my bro tried to introduce them for the second time Altoid gave Wrigley a run for his money by giving him a good swipe - and got a claw stuck in Wrigley's head. The folks at PAWS said it would be just a few swipes from the cat before the dog would back I guess we're on swipe one!

Mark says that Wrigley has been sleeping through the night in his crate without making a sound. And he's lasting all day in the crate with no accidents. And the very smart Wrigley already is shaking his paw and when he wants to go out he brings his leash to Mark. How cute right?

To Joey, Zella, and Elphaba:

Dear Furbabies,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom (or top Miss Elphaba!) is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, bark, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --canine or feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butts. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

  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.


Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

  1. Eat less
  2. Don't ask for money all the time
  3. Are easier to train
  4. Normally come when called
  5. Never ask to drive the car
  6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
  7. Don't smoke or drink
  8. Don't want to wear your clothes
(I don't know who deserves credit for this...I've seen it several different places...but I love it!)

Are you like me....

And hate it when there is an extra scene all the way at the end of a movie??

I was just sitting here working on the laptop while X-3 was on in the background. Has anyone watched it all the way through the end of the credits? I've seen this movie several times and never saw the end of the credits. Well guess what...Charles is alive! The credits end..and you go to a scene with a nurse caring over a patient (unseen). You hear the patient (Patrick Stewarts voice) say "hello moira" and the nurse look at him started and say "charles ?" OMG....what does this mean.... He's supposed to be dead..and I didn't think there was going to be another sequel...

Reminds me of the fact I've heard there's always something special at the end of the Pirates of the Caribean credits too. I never knew this until a week after I saw the third movie. Apparently a scene comes up and you see Kiera Knightly walking the beach with a young boy...its the first time Orlando Bloom is able to come on land and see her...and their son. I still have yet to see this one for myself....but was very upset when I heard about it and realized I'd missed it.

Why do studios do this? I mean....almost no one stays and watches ALL the credits of a movie... I usually only stay if its animated to check the names and make sure I got them all right. Or if I want to see more about the music that was in the movie.. but thats it. I wonder how common it is to have a special scene after the credits... Does this mean I need to start sitting through them? How many of you watch the credits til the end?
