Cats versus Dogs
The other day I was readin' how LawDog had been, well, sick as a dog. Said illness included some unexpected, up-close-and-personal contact with large ceramic fixtures in The Room That Contains The Water Pit of Death. Naturally he called upon his animal companion to go for help. Good idea…'cept said animal companion was a fe-lyin' who, followin' approved Al Qitty trainin', promptly sat on LawDog's head.
In case y'all needed remindin', this is how a true animal companion is suppose to help.
"A dog seeing that its elderly owner was in danger of drowning, when flash floods struck Kampung Ulu Temiang yesterday, did the only thing it could do. It didn't stop barking until help came along…
"The dog's desperate barking eventually alerted a team of fire and rescue personnel, who aided by some neighbours, went to the house and found the woman, in her 60s, shivering and helpless, barely able to keep her head above the rising water level… [I]t was only when the firemen rescued the woman that her faithful dog left her side and swam to safety…"
…once again provin' the expression "faithful feline companion" is an oxymoron.
