Bella, our current little changeling. She cycles between being the sweetest, most loving, most devilish, most ornery, most stubborn, & cutest pup with no predicting when or for how long each trait will last.
My brother's dog attacked me. My ankle is fubar. Looks like they're gonna have to cut it open to repair some of the damage to the tendons. Will know more Monday. No warning, nothing. Dog was behind us minding his own business playing with a tennis ball, next thing I know my ankle is in his mouth. That dog has always been aggressive but usually just barks a lot (aggressively) from a distance. Red Heeler (ACD).
I knew there was a reason I didn't get a dog when I moved. Secondly, living alone, I'm gone all day long and I can't leave a dog in the house by itself. It's gotta go out to poop and pee every couple hours. So I chose a cat. It thinks it's a dog though. Rides to the store with me in town, fetches when he's in the mood, most of the time he'll sit when I command it, will shake (when he's in the mood), eats spiders rats mice snakes crickets bugs flies a wasp once etc. Show me a dog that will do that-and use the litter box when it's gotta pee or poo. I wish he'd do better in the boat so we could go fishing together but the sound of the motor scares him to death. Oh well. I was at the lake a couple years ago and was fixing to load up, parked the boat at the dock while I was going to go get the trailer. Another boat was already docked next to me and in the boat was a black cat. Guy was just coming up to the boat (had already backed the trailer in) and I asked him if the cat was his or was a stray? He said the cat goes all over the place with him, boat, truck, everywhere. It was the oddest thing I've seen, a cat that goes fishing with it's "owner". "Owner" in quotes because if you know anything about cats, cats dont' have owners. Cats have servants. LOL. They're funny.
