Dear Dog and Cat:

When I say to move, it means to go someplace else, not switch with each
other so there are still two of you in the way.

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The
other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note that placing a
paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for
it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically
pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is therefore not a
racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me
doesn't help either, as I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king size bed. I am very sorry
about this. Do not think I will resort of sleeping on the sofa to
ensure your comfort. Look at videos of dogs and cats sleeping. They
can actually curl up into a ball. It is not necessary to sleep
perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent
possible. Please note that sticking tails and tongues out to maximize
space used is nothing but sarcasm.

My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If, by
some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is
not necessary to claw, whine, try to turn the knob, or to get your paw
under the edge and try to pull the door open. When I exit this room, I
will come out the same door I entered. In addition, I have been using
bathrooms for years. Canine and/or feline attendance has never been

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog's butt. I
cannot stress this enough. I t would be such a simple change for you.
In return for your following these simple rules, I have posted the
following message on our front door:

Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit and Like to Complain About Our Pets"

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on our clothes, stay off the furniture.

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, s/he is an adopted child who is
short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

5. Dogs and cats are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask for
money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never
drive your car, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about buying the
latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, don't need a gazillion dollars
for college, and if they get pregnant, you can sell the results.
I didn't realize somebody had been spying upon our humble abode! I'm glad spring is finally here so I can sleep with the Mrs again, since the critters start spending the night outside. That's dead on about curling up in a ball, our queen size would be plenty big if only they would!
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
LOVED the posting.....however, haytrucker.......i think it sounds an awful lot like MY abode they be spying on :wink: :wink:
The other night when I went to bed had to push the two cats out of the way then layed down on dog who was under my covers.And that was only on my side of the bed.
sounds like you all need to teach some manners to your pets.either on the floor or out the door..
i printed this off before from this same site: i wish someone would make a poster or something so i can put it in the entryway to the house :)

i swear, the kids are just as bad: Cait told me last winter that she wanted a german shep. when i asked where we'd fit it into the bed ( we had myself, Cait, the Dobe AND the "little" lab cross in bed at the time of the discussion--oh--it's only a queen-sized bed, BTW), the answer i got was "he'd be little...".

yepper :lol: the limit here is 2 dogs. period. but i wonder if i've raised the kids to be a sucker for everything that's lost--not a BAD thing, but a person can only do what they can do, right? i'd rather give a GOOD home to 2 dogs that need it than a marginal home to 10...
