I found a posting on Gerald's blog regarding a cute cat picture website. I had to send it to my friend who cannot resist a cute cat picture. Okay, okay, the title of my posting is a joke - no, I do not advocate using cats in vivisection. I am not fond of them, but I will not be cruel to them. As a dog person, however, I liked this picture.
I never had a Pomeranian (breed of dog in picture above), but I enjoy the Digihusband's stories about how he and his brothers would play "Bowling Pomeranian" and grab their own such doggie by his fluff o' hair, and launch him down a narrow hallway tiled with smooth lino, with a short flight of steps at the end. The trick was to gauge how hard to toss the dog because if he went down the steps, he'd get nasty and come back at them for revenge. I suppose in that regard it was really more "Bocce Ball Pomeranian." Need I say there were only boys in my husband's household while growing up? Speaking of which, I have discovered my brother-in-law setting up shop in the Catholic blogosphere.
Alas, we are "between dogs" now - the Digidaughter wants a Golden Retriever, the Digison (after seeing Underdog) wants a Beagle, the Digihusband wants a Blue Tick Hound, and I want another Pembroke Welsh Corgi (Husband was less than keen on getting another Weimaraner, although I love that breed, despite their neuroses).
