bookworm....I feel your pain. It's been over six months since I lost my big guy, and I shed tears for him every day.

My condolences on this profound loss....

on the lighter side...

my boy is more aloof; he likes affection but on his terms; he comes to me when he wants a rubdown

now, that maggie is gone, there's nobody to deflect my attention...i can tell he's getting annoyed though he bears it patiently

The love of my life,

I'm in love with this girl like I've never loved before!

Spring and the kids are stoked to be outside again!

Sunbathing is her favorite. She's my sexy bitch!

Y'all hear about the 3 year old who went missing in S Dakota yesterday?
A lengthy frantic search was looking grim in the face of a nasty thunderstorm
and nightfall when they found him curled up beneath his pooch as the rain
was beginning.

When you have a good dog, you don't just have a best friend, you have a connection, a bond stronger than most human relationships. I have been blessed with Lass who raised me and surprising, I find myself with another incredible good dog by my side.

When I lose her, I'll lose a family member.

Our great beast Gus, maybe I could bring him to the Facelift? He loves people and sleeps most of the day:

And now, an editorial from the cats:

What's puzzling about the above video is the woman running away leaving the perhaps seriously injured child still lying there vulnerable to another attack? Or am I interpreting this wrongly?
I mean with a injury like that the woman should have picked the child up and taken him inside to wait for Paramedics.
Heroic cat or not ---an adult does not run away from an injured child like that.

Ain't nobody going to screw with that cats kid.

To me the best part is after the cat makes his first strike. He takes the time to look and make sure is child is ok, then back to the job at hand.

Saw that cat video today too, Jimmy. Not a big cat person myself, but that is one badass cat!!!

Cat-fight!!!!

EDIT: Ward, my wife just said the same thing about Mom. I think she saw the wound, and the dog bailing, and wanted to get on 911 ASAP. But it DOES NOT look good.

Yes, the kid got bitten by a dog. 3 stitches a bite. The dog got the death penalty and the kid got promoted a rank amongst his peers. That's a big change from when I was a child. The dog back then got equal representation during social arbitration between neighbours.

It was all about who was teasing the other more...

Maybe you're right Blue. It could be the hysteria of the situation, profound stress has a really irrational effect on some people. The cat was in better control of the situation than the woman
(I really don't want to believe the woman was afraid for her own personal safety).

With the positioning of cameras it looks like there was perhaps an on-going dispute between neighbors here. Just a guess.

The dog belongs to Jim Brennan and that's his house next door.

Good point, Jim, but we don't know if the kid was teasing, do we?

But when I was in high-school with my 2 beagles, our immediate neighbor used to tease out older beagle through the fence and throw rocks over at him.

One day he came to collect money for a Boy Scout charity. I left the dinner table to answer the door. I left the neighbor at the door and went to get my Dad. By the time my Dad got to the door, Rocky the beagle was fully locked onto the little punks leg. Canine teeth puncture wounds about 1/2" deep.

We patched him up and sent him on his way, the boy, that is. This was in the mid-eighties.

Granted, the wound in the cat-dog case was pretty nasty. That dog was attacking and seeking the boy out. I don't think it was a teasing issue.

And my dog, Rocky, was an unusually docile beagle. Never, ever bit another before that, or since then.

EDIT: saw an interview just now On Fox that the Mom was chasing after the dog at the end there, and she was bitten too.
