Re: Talk About Your Dog(s)/Cat(s)



Here's my cat 'Chip'. I call him Chip the Cat. Chip is 15 years old and I got him from a relatives farm in Illinois. He's extremely intelligent. He doesn't use a litter box and will just meow at you to let him outside. One oddity about him is that he loves to watch James Bond movies. He will sit and watch an entire Bond flick and then leave when the movie is over.
He's quite a badass, he is declawed but still hunts critters and leaves them on the front porch. The other day he got into a fight with another cat in the front yard. The skirmish drifted away from our residence and I was concerned about him. Ten minutes later he was strutting with a very confident gait toward the door.

Unlike a lot of other cats I've met, Chip isn't shy and loves meeting new people. He's really a kind hearted soul who just wants to be liked. He's getting up there in age but I think he's going to be around for a while. I can't really imagine him not being around. That'll be a sad day.

Re: Talk About Your Dog(s)/Cat(s)

mrscrashjr has given the go ahead to get a puppy. Suggestions for a breed? My dad breeds German Shepherds but I'm not really keen to them. I want an active dog that will sit on my kayak, play well with my kids ages 2 and 5, not shed everywhere, not bark all f'ing day and night, and be a social member of the family.

Also, I'm not terribly interested in a pound puppy because I've seen that turn out badly. Willing to pay a breeder for papered pups.

Thanks!

My cat would have laughed at a Bond film. She preferred the work of Kurosawa and Antonioni.

For those of us that have had to go through the experience this is pretty accurate

Retrievers just stay the most awesome breed.

We had a Flatcoat once, sadly passed away 4 years ago. But he surely was awesome.

Both your dogs are cute, but I must say I'm very happy to hear that Snuffle is 18 years old! My dog will be turning 10 soon, so I wanted to ask you what your secrets are, and what tips/advice you could share about extending the life of a beloved dog. Thanks in advance!
