Yup. Beagle will also eat greens when she has a digestive upset, but we think she just wants to hork as well. She will frantically search out anything green, including grass, house plants and carpet. Schefellera has a caustic chemical, and is not good for animals as we found when she tried to purge herself. Also not good for the schefellera.

I didn't know that dogs do that as well. But I've had cats more than dogs. Good to know about the schefellera plants.

Pac, I loved the pics of your dogs. They sure are big, and look so comfy laying there in the sun.

Yup, me too.

I remember being woken by "You better get up. A firefighter just told me the building next door is on fire." I jumped out of bed and got dressed, but I was running around like a headless chicken. Definitely not clear and lucid.

Monkey insists in coming into the bathroom with me, no matter the reason. If I kick her out, she sneaks right back in or howls at the door. When I shower, she has been known to sit on the far outer corner of the tub and peak in. I take hot steamy showers so maybe she will never get a cold!

I do feel like I have a peeping tom or a stalker though....just as long as it isn't "Psycho". We watched "Hitchcock" the other night.

I had a cat who always wanted to sit on the edge of the tub when my then boyfriend took a bath (I'm a shower person, I seldom take a bath, even when I have a good tub). He let his tail float in the water, but didn't notice. I guess the bath water was just the right temperature. He hopped off the edge of the tub; flicked his tail in the air and it was heavy with water, so it continued and wacked him on the head. Poor guy ran like all get out. He had been attacked by a wet monster.

However, if LittleBit decides she wants to sleep with me she ends up all curled up on the outside bottom corner of the mattress. Why? Because when she visits Himself he pets her, but if she comes in with me I move her to the foot of the bed. Now she goes there on her own. Now tell me WHO can be taught?

Many a loving marriage has been saved because the wise couple had the good sense to sleep in separate rooms.
