~ Dog People are a special kind of breed, not recognized by the AKC or the CKC.
~ They usually have a dog crate in their living rooms, kitchens, or bedrooms.
~ They keep messy houses, but their kennels are spotless.
~ They can always find a show catalog within an arms length,
~ And they have kids who know more about the birds and the bees when they are five than
most people know at 40.
~ Dog People will drive 400 miles, spend$100 on gas, $200 on a motel room, and $150 on
meals just to bring home a 25-cent ribbon.
~ Dog People drive trucks, SUV's and motor homes equipped to haul dog crates and they can
never be reached on weekends, unless you happen to be at the same dog show.
~ They rarely get to work on time, but can be at ringside by 8:00am.
~ Dog People will give up a $350,000 home in the suburbs to move to a shack on 10 acres so
they can have a $150,00 dog kennel.
~ Dog People never fertilize, yet their lawns are lush and green.
~ Dog People pay all of their bills late, but never miss a closing date for a show entry.
~ They would rather be audited by the IRS than be investigated by the AKC or the CKC.
~ They use dog food bags for trash and trashcans for dog food,
~ And they can talk on the phone for hours to another dog person, in a language known only to
~ And last, but certainly not least, Dog People have parents and family who think they've lost
their minds, neighbors who think they're strange and doggy friends who think they are
Dear Cat Owner...
1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.
2. Add the required amount of shampoo in the toilet and have both lids raised.
3. Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and quickly close both lids
(you may need to stand on the lid so that the cat can't escape). CAUTION: do
not get any part of your body too close to the tedge, as his paws will be reaching
out for anything they can find. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds.
Never mind the noises that come from the toilet - the cat is actually enjoying this.
5. Flush the toilet three ofr four times. This provides a "power wash and rinse"
which I found to be quite effective.
6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no
people between the toilet and the outside door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can and quickly lift both lids.
8. The now clean cat will rocket out of ther toilet and run outside where he will
