The Pound - for silly creatures great and small


Quote  |  Reply

Ok, this is a thread where all the people who are crazy about their furbabies can dump their stories, pics and whatnot. Please feel free to make up rules and add funny links, furniture etc. to furbish this so far empty place. I'll add them as we go along.

Rules:

  • you pick up your pets poop after you leave - unless anther dog eats it first, then it's ok.

 

The pace is taking on some shape.

This is our kitteh space. Kari built it and as you can see she doesn't watch a lot of telly. There is a kennel for those who actually want to park their dog outside. (Hands up for those whose dogs sleep in or on your beds! :-)  )There are toys for them, too.

If you want to stuff your pooch into a pouch here's an idea for a costume.

and where is Rox, anyway??

My youngest Son refuses to walk our dog. It causes much discontent in the household. I've told him unless he walks the dog, she goes to the pound. Was this wrong?

*starts to set up kiity space*

Uhhh.............to me...........yes.

Why is he not wanting to walk the dog?  Is he busy playing video games?  Not confident walking the dog by himself?  Perhaps there should be repercussions to him, not to the dog?

Did I say take the dog to the pound? Sorry, I meant my son.

*installs a huge cat furniture setup in one corner*

*watches cats snub it*

*sigh*

kevin: i don't know if you're serious or not. If it's his dog, he should walk it. If you got a dog for the heck of it, why not walk together?

Oh, in that case..........no, not wrong at all :D

If unsure, I think you should generally assume the latter with Kevin.

*constructs a little doggy kennel outside for the pooches*

Well, it is confusing unless your son is a he/she.....not that there is anything wrong with that...

I will say this is a real problem. So much so that my oldest Son called me at work to complain. We have my MIL living with us in a downstairs apartment. When it's his turn to walk the dog after school Son #2 goes to his Grandmother's and will not come upstairs.

I think the only alternative is to offer an economic incentive to whomever walks the dog. I would give older brother and twin sister right of first refusal. It's kind of ridiculous, she only weighs 5 pounds and 100 yards is a frakin Marathon for the little beotch......

You have to find his button that will make him want to walk the dog.  What motivates him?  Perhaps one month a proper dog walking gets him time with dad out to a movie or something like that.....

We adopted her from a woman that didn't have any time for her. The kids pay much more attention to her than the last dog we had. She really is a good dog for a lap dog.

She probably loves being there with your family

Soooo.....  We've moved 3x in 3 months.   We are finally back home now.  My cats won't stop meowing.  They are unbelievably freaked out.

The vet told me to try this homeopathic crap called Rescue remedy.  It's been a week now...  and it hasn't helped AT ALL.

I'm really condsidering kitty prozac.  Anyone have anything like this happen?

 

ETA:  We've got a new puppy coming next month... something has GOT TO GIVE with the cats, or introducing a new baby is questionable. 

Purrfect place to express my displeasure at the Westminster Dog Show's decision to drop Pedigree as a sponser, because their ads centered on raising awareness for rescue dogs.

Shame on them. >:(
