Dog Lovers
You Know You Love Dogs When...

You have a kiddie wading pool in the yard, but no small children.

You have baby gates permanently installed at strategic places
around the house, but no babies.

The trash basket is more or less permanently installed in the
kitchen sink, to keep the dog out of it while you're at work.

You can't see out the passenger side of the windshield because
there are nose-prints all over the inside.

Poop has become a source of conversation for you and your
significant other.

You refer to yourselves as Mommy (or Daddy.)

Your dog sleeps with you.

You have 32 different names for your dog. Most make no sense, but
she understands.

Your dog eats cat poop, but you still let her kiss you (but not
immediately afterward, of course).

You like people who like your dog. You despise people who don't.

You carry dog biscuits in your purse or pocket at all times.

You talk about your dog the way other people talk about their kid.

You sign and send birthday/anniversary/Christmas cards from your
dog.

You put an extra blanket on the bed so your dog can be comfortable.

You'd rather stay home on Saturday night and cuddle your dog than
go to the movies with your sweetie.

You go to the pet supply store every Saturday because it's one of
the very few places that lets you bring your dog inside, and your dog
loves to go with you.

You open your purse, and that big bunch of baggies you use for
pick-ups pops out.

You get an extra-long hose on your shower-massage just so you can
use it to wash your dog in the tub, without making the dog sit hip-deep
in water.

You don't think it's the least bit strange to stand ! in the back
yard yelling, "Emily, pee!" over and over again, while Emily tends to
play and forget what she's out there for (but what your neighbors think
of your behavior is yet another story).

You and the dog come down with something like flu on the same day.
Your dog sees the vet while you settle for an over-the-counter remedy
from the drugstore.

Your dog is getting old and arthritic, so you go buy lumber and
build her a small staircase so she can climb onto the bed by herself.

Your license plate or license plate frame mentions your dog.

I always say that a true dog lover uses crates for end tables.

Robert,
Ann and I are both guilty of quite a few of the things on that list, but we've never shared our bed with our dogs. It was during the trip to the 2003 Bluebonnet Fest that we began using the shelf on the Tundra's back seat, not only for the dogs while on the road, but at night for sleeping. I'm not sure who benefitted most, we got a good night's sleep uninterrupted by the dogs moving around, and they were able to sleep without us stumbling around trying to avoid stepping on them during a "nature call".
I've made similar shelves for other vehicles over the years and the design has remained pretty much the same. With the front seats in there normal fore and aft positions, I cut a sheet of plywood to fit from those seat backs to the back of the rear seat. In other words, the piece sits on top of the back seat straddling the area where one's legs would normally go. The front of the shelf is supported by two legs and several layers of carpet provide traction for the dogs and a comfortable surface for them to lie on. It is so handy for other uses, that it only gets removed when additional people must ride with us.
We wish a wonderful Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year to all!
Kurt & Ann K.

The chairs are in the mail!. We are totally guilty of being owned by two dogs!

Robert,
I still remember your description of trying to take pictures of your new puppies--it makes me laugh to think about it!

Cat Lovers (To be fair to all our 4 legged furry children)

You Know You Love your Kitties When...

You have a balls and toys all over the floors, but no small children.

You have cat trees and perches permanently installed for climbing and lounging
around the house, and carefully walk under or by them.

You have a special shelf in the pantry loaded with a smorgasbord of canned cat food for catís selection.

No outfit is complete without cat hair.

A source of conversation for you and your significant other is the location of pink mouse, orange mouse, green mouse, brown mouse and white mouse.

You refer to yourselves as Mama (or Papa.)

Your cat(s) sleeps with you.

You have nicknames for your cat. Most make no sense, but
she/he understands.

Kitty smells butts, but you still let her kiss you (but not
immediately afterward, like you know of course).

You like people who like cats. You do not invite people over who don't.

You carry dry cat food in your purse or car/truck at all times.

You talk about your furry children the way other people talk about their kids.

You worry about the best place for the litter box in the camper. (move porta potty if necessary).

You leave the electric blanket on in the day so kitty can be comfy.

You'd rather stay home on Saturday night to play with kitty than go out to eat.

You go to the pet supply store when at all possible because it's one of
the very few places that let you bring kitty inside, and she loves to play with toys and mess with the dogs.

You open your car/truck, to reveal the travel litter box in the back floorboard.

You don't think it's the least bit strange to stand in the yard yelling,
"kitty-kitty here Alice, Phussy, Bear, here Ed, Shelia. Pixie!" over and over again, while they watch the entertainment from perches and all kinds of hiding places.

You and the kitty start sneezing on the same day, so she is off to the vet while you settle for an over-the-counter remedy from the drugstore.

You have magnetic cat tracks, real ones too, on hood and side of your car or truck.
