You get that secret share, PLEASE. I took in an old flame from over 30 years ago in danger of eviction.... and subsequently, her six cats. My Yeller Lab hates cats. Go figure. :roll:

On Christmas Day I read an email from my 84 year old Mom about how she was kinda lonely (Stepfather, 97, died in May) and wanted to visit his grave since this Christmas was the first without him, so off I go to Orlando. That's Inland from where I am at. I HATE going INLAND.

After, I spent the Christmas afternoon building a method for the cats to get into her apartment (attached) through a high window. An elaborate set of jump up steps, etc.

Hope they use it..... Berkley, (Yeller Lab) is gonna kill one of 'em soon....


I now know without a doubt or hesitation why the chicken crossed the road.....

....it was to show the armadillo it could be done.

I gave up on cats a long time ago. Tried them, didn't like them. Love my dogs though.
Beagle or slightly bigger size, quiet, low maintenance short fur and not pansy looking.
Had some beagles, they are dumb as a rock and you can't wash the hound smell off of them. Good for rabbit and deer hunting, but not in my house.

My retrievers have more sense than most people I know, and they don't stink like hounds either.

Yes, I have had one super smart yellow Lab - never been game to get another in case I was disappointed!

I think the time may have come though! :lol:

BF - if you get a rescue puppy and must leave it alone during the day, consider this (or an equivalent in your country) as an alternative.

My daughter-in-law manages the exact same type of place as that. It's truly heaven for a dog stuck alone all day. Not cheap though, it cost about the same a day as a decent hotel room. I'm real lucky, my dogs aren't alone.

Cane was a rescue puppy and he's the smartest dog I've ever had, and the most anxious to please.

Larry,
The next time Cane needs a girlfriend you should have her all picked out for him. :D I bet there would be a high demand for the offspring. Just a thought :P

I think we average $17/day for 12 hours. Hard to find a baby sitter for your kid let alone your dog for $1.42/hr. 8)

That's not bad at all. This one is about $35 a day. It's swank though, from a dog's standpoint. We are trying to get a deal with them now. I want to take my son and his wife to Costa Rica for a couple of weeks, but between us we have 6 dogs to board. Trying to work out a reasonable package arrangement, but I think the condo in CR will cost less than the dog boarding, even with an employee and group rate discount :?

Best use for them I've found too. Fish bait is a close second :lol:

I'm sure that some cat lovers will disagree....

They will also eat everything in sight. Wood, plastic, metal ... don't matter. We had a Beagle for a while and wound up giving it to a rancher. Seigel the Beagle got to ride in trucks and chase animals, and quit eating stuff or so we heard. That decision was a win for all involved.
