JP,
love the poster...Been there done that, son's pooch.. loveable doxie, but a royal pain..His favorite pastime is to wait til you leave the kitchen then he gets up on the table for dinner..Nothing is sacred with ol Woody around...I warned my son, if I ever catch woods on the table again, he will be meeting my favorite pair of pliars J/K but he has been warned...

I did have to turn one cat into an outside cat because he wouldn't quit peeing on everything in the house. He promptly lost a fight with a raccoon - and I mean permanently lost. One of my kids is still mad at me for that but I really couldn't break him of spraying in the house.
We really try and try but sometimes you hit a point a cat spraying in the house is a really bad one something I will not put up with.Our cat Shadow started spraying when we got Snoopy so we did not love him in front of Shadow until he decided Snoopy was OK now its all good.

Poster

OMG Thank-you jpmcgrew you too, GB for that poster!! I had to compose myself (and change!). That would fit Deuce to a T if the picture was him!! I have to say that he is being a good boy today and not leaving my side. I do have one word that I can say that neither dog will ignore... BELL. They both hate the cow bell that I have used to train them from jumping up on people. Just mention it and they will stop what they are doing wrong, and go lay down. Now if I could only get a way to remote system... I do have a cat, Lucky. They are afraid of her, she rules the water dish.

I used to have a great big Red Bone Coon Hound named Henry and a Border Collie named Little.Well when I used to work at the Ski Valley in Taos they would hafto stay in the house all day till my boyfriend and I got home in the afternoon.It was Christmas time we had wrapped presents to give to friends etc our kitchen had open cabinets.Well one day we came home and walked in the door it was sooo funny.There was Little looking at us like he didnt do it(and I dont think he did) but knew he was gonna be in big trouble anyway.So in the living room all the gifts had the wrapping tore off and wrapping paper everywhere.Also all the food in the cabinets where strewn all over the floor every package open and spilled every where including bread,baking soda,crackers and those things that where called Mr.Phipps.A total catastrophy.Needless to say they didnt get in too much trouble as they knew what they did.But we used to call it the day Henry threw a Mr.Phipps Party

Dog

Actually, I wonder.. you know how some people regift? Can I regift a dog back to my brother?!? He isn't even going to come to Mom's for Christmas, so maybe if I just drop him down the chimney.. Just joking - I think.

You are so funny, Dawn! But you know, my oldest daughter had a habit of picking up stray animals and then giving them to her brothers and sister as "gifts" - gifts that live at my house!!!! I've often wondered about regifting some of them back to her.

OMG Dawn, he must be a teen! I have 2 teen boys and they say the same thing. A good use for new shoes, though.
