We laughed ourselfs silly watching a horse follow 2 ducks around....when they left the arena the horse would wait for them to come back....It was an outdoor arena. The horse was stabled at night, but the barn cats kept her company then....
The other horse had been her stable mate for years. She sure was happy when the other horse came back home...
“My cat doesnt engage in non-stop serial barking at nothing like my @#$%^&* neighbors dogs do.”
15 years ago my neighbor got a dog and put its pen at the back of the his lot that adjoins mine and was only 50’ from my deck.
The damn thing barked all the time. It only took a few evenings of making a loud SHHH! then tossing a firecracker in that direction to train him to shut up when it heard the SHHH! After a while it learned what it should bark at and when it should bark.
“[barks at} his own gas,”
LOL. My GF has a Chihuahua/Terrier mix that is scared of its own farts.
“My lassie collie would wait at the fence line of our lane for me to come home from school.”
I had a wired hair stray that adopted me when I was in grade school. She’d walk with me to the bus stop every morning and be there waiting for me in the afternoon.
Every week day at 3:30 she’d let my mom know it was time to go outside.
Easy to believe.
Thanks for your narrative.
>> It only took a few evenings of making a loud SHHH! then tossing a firecracker in that direction
HA! Thanx for the tip!
>> am introverted, unsociable, schizoid, and have a terrible disposition
Have you tried a hedgehog? They are supposed to make great pets! :-)
LOL....."I'm gonna show you."
Actually I only remember him jumping on the countertop once, after I had told him no. He immmediately looked startled and jumped down. And it wasn't luck; I just started training him from kittenhood---consistently--that no, you don't do that.
“When it comes to rodent control, they have no equal.”
My grandfather used them for hunting rabbits. Ran them into a rabbit burrow to drive the rabbit out and into a bag.
They really look very cute.
I don’t know where to put this but he has left the forum on behalf of a relative.
FTA: “Dog people are a little more outgoing,” a dog owner at the Westminster Dog Show told ABC News. “Cat people are a little more aloof, because that’s just how cats are.”
Dunno about that. To me a home just isn’t homey without both cat(s) and dog(s), tho I favor dogs. The bigger the better. Can’t stand most people.
I most certainly did understand your post. I used your lack of thorough thinking to my advantage....
You thought THAT up in just three days?
I haven’t been on here in 3 days....I don’t live on here like some. I have a life. ;)
Okay, We can go with that.
