I used to be a dog man. When the days of gender correctness started I became a dog person.

I am a dog person also. Now if I say 'dog woman' does that mean I look like a dog? Good grief, I hope not. I prefer small dogs. Easier to care for.

The latest with Rosebud is that I was snoozing this afternoon. Not something I do a lot, but since I broke the hip, more than usual. We'd had people over for a few snacks yesterday, so hubby, doggie, and I were all taking it easy. Although Rosebud only weighs 25 lbs, she is a heavy chewer, and I buy her these enormous rawhide bone for her to jaw on when we have company. I'm talking, they are almost as long as she is, chest-to-butt. Anyway, I was napping and she tried to put the damned rawhide bone in my mouth. I could see the message in her eyes: Here, Claire, eat this, you will feel better! I almost died laughing. It was so funny.

That's so sweet and funny.

Rosebud might have something there, Claire, glucosomine and condroitin!

Our previous dogs have gifted us with a very dead mole (wedding present) and a live toad ( just because).

Roe wouldn't let me have whatever she was chewing on...about 20 minutes later she spit out a cherry pit. I hope she liked the dried cherry.

Dogs can be so stubborn! DH struggled with beagle and a mummified chicken breast she found on a walk, she nearly won.

When Teddy was just a puppy, he would pick up anything that caught his fancy when he was out walking. My son taught him very early on, to "drop it" and he does.

Last year someone up his way tossed out some dcon where pigeons liked to gather. Before you knew it there were a bunch of dead pigeons around. Some of the neighborhood dogs got sick eating them. When my son got wind of this, he changed his walking routine into another direction. Why take chances?

Non discriminatory. I love critters. Some I love because they're beautiful in their own wonderful way.

Some I love because they are delicious!
