All Things Dog
« on: March 24, 2018, 02:54:28 PM »
As the Merovingian in the Matrix said, "You see, there is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action, reaction. Cause, effect."



An All Things Cat thread has been generated from the chaos, and now a Dog thread must too. It is the law of the Universe, and such a law must be obeyed.

Ever hear of the story of Hachikō? The loyal Akita who would wait for his deceased owner at a train station in Japan for 9 years until his death?  :cryandrun:

Yes, I have heard of the dog. It is a very touching bit of history.

I watched a Japanese movie on the story a long time ago, I forgot the name and can't find it on YouTube, though.:(  By the time it ended I was a babbling mess who couldn't stop crying. Who knew a human could produce that much fluid from their eye glands?   :waah:

Dogs make great family members. They bring love, joy, a couple of loud smelly farts here and there, and happiness.

Yes, it does, Silver.

Then my head strings think, "What a bloody stupid dog!"

I wonder whether a cat would do the same.

Naw, cats are pragmatic! You must know the old joke about the man laying, out cold, at the bottom of the stairs.

His dog is thinking, "Master, master, get up, tell me what to do. Oh, what do I do, do you want your slippers? A paper? Tell me, tell me . . ."

The cat is thinking, "You gonna get up and feed me or do I start eating your face?"

That's probably why I like cats.

I dedicate this thread to dogs like George!

...inhabitants are, as the man once said, 'whores, pimps, gamblers, and sons of bitches,' by which he meant everybody. Had the man looked through another peephole he might have said, 'saints and angels and martyrs and holy men,' and he would have meant the same thing.”
