    There should totally be a support group for Mouse, Chuck and Ruffy….clearly they have issues. Who can blame them? They used to be our babies! Now they are tripped over, starved for food and attention, and last week when Ruffy stepped in dog shit that we hadn’t cleaned up because it was all like, hidden in the snow, my hubby took to calling her “Shitpaw” all evening after he had to bathe her to lose the smell. Poor Shitpaw.

    I have had the urge to chew my foot off, too when I hear W, along with the howling and tap-dancing fits. I might just chew off one of my big-ass toes, too.

    Does she think he is talking about Dubya Bush? I howl and throw tap-dancing fits of fury when I hear his name uttered, too.

    Holy, I think your dog might be a Republican. If you say W to my dog he sulks off in a corner and starts chewing on his own feet.

    Dr. Johnny Fever, your webbed toes are way better than any butt shot. I have never seen anything like that before. I have incredibly long toes, though. They could literally be used as fingers if I ever lost one of them in an industrial accident, or something. A dillhole attorney that I used to work with looked at my toes (I was wearing these really cute open-toed high heels) and told me they looked they belonged on a monkey. I told him to suck cock. My toes give me character, dammit.

    If our oldest Boxer hears my hubby say the letter “W” she fucking FREAKS out! She will howl and throw “tap-dancing fits” in her kennel if he puts on his hat and doesn’t go get a leash off of the hook.

    Talk about a spoiled bitch!

    that post about chuck was most excellent. i was laughing in wide mouth-gaping-open-surprise, sheer enjoyment, and amusement by the end. if i lived in utah, there would be certain months (winter) that the dog would definitely not get walked… due completely to the cold, and not to any time constraints. so you’re not COMPLETELY neglectful of the chuck-meister.

    Heeheehee thank you Bucky! Now I’m kind of embarrassed. 🙂

    And the chickens can flap over the FENCE? Yikes. I support the chicken program so long as I don’t have to feed or touch chickens, or deal with neighbor complaints.

    LOL Cathi – people give Mouse too much credit. He’s really not a smart dog, and I mean that in the lovingest way possible. He just spends every single moment listening to everything in the house, because he lives in constant fear that he’s going to miss an opportunity to have me feed him marshmallows.

    Tiffany — so, you’ve married the Chicken Man, have you? I’d think your neighbors would forgive a couple of hens, so long as you’ve got proper fencing. Our neighbor’s hens used to flap over the low fence and tear up our turf, until we got bad dog Snickers. The hens kinda tend to keep to their own yard now.

    And your “slightly gay” onesie? I’m buying that for my next friend who has a baby. Since it’s not self-promotion if I do it, I’ll post a link, ’cause it’s funny as fuck!

    ps. Re: His Chuckness is such a good boy. 🙂

    Back before the days of the dog door, my husband took our dog out 99% of the time because I was too lazy. This dog HATES walks, so tit really was just a potty run. But still, I’m really lazy.

    So if my husband put his shoes on and I didn’t, Mouse would run to the front door and sit down because he knew that Kevin was going to take him out.

    If I put *my* shoes on and Kevin didn’t, Mouse didn’t even bother to move. My husband used this fact to make fun of me and call me lazy.

    If we both put our shoes on, he jumped up and ran to his room, which was basically a giant crate.

    If I was home alone and I put my shoes on, he didn’t bother to move… chances were I was just going to grab the mail and come right back. But if I put on shoes and *put lipstick on* – then he knew I was leaving for real and would run to his room. It freaked me out for the longest time — how the hell did he know I’m really leaving? It took me forever to realize that lipstick was his cue that I was on my way somewhere for real.

  • tIffany

    2005/02/23 at 4:09 pm

    Bucky! My husband is totally heartbroken because we aren’t zoned for chicken ownership. My psychobabble guess is that he wants to re-create the little farm he grew up on for our son… something he really should have realized before we bought a house on a small lot within city limits. He seriously stays awake nights, contemplating whether or not to VIOLATE CITY ORDINANCES and secretly buy two little hens. My husband has never broken a single law in his life ever, but the chickens are calling him and driving him to do it. I swear it’s just like that Close Encounters movie. I keep expecting to look over and see him molding his mashed potatoes into the shape of a chicken.

    I forget why I was telling you that. Oh! It’s nice to know that neighbors can be so understanding about chickens.

    PS. I am exerting a lot of self control by not posting a link to my smartassed baby shirts here. I have one about growing up to be gay – it’s more for boys though. 🙂

    shine, my dog, is the queen of sulking. if everyone is out of the house, she has to go in the cage, and she is comforted my a small milkbone. however, when we leave and she’s not in the cage, she will follow the departing person to the door, and then when it is apparent she is not going, she sulks to the person who is left home and demands comforting.

    when we come home, after her being caged, she is talking to us from the moment we get in the back door. then she runs outside and runs around the yard for about 5 minutes.
