Of course,what you really want is a large hot dog.

Nice :wink:

Bizarrely, my two rabbits hate to sit on anything. If they have too much bedding they kick it out of the hutch, they seem to like bare boards.

a few years ago i had a rooty/lab cross calld jet . on saturdays my partner and i normally have a curry and what evers left i used to give to the dog as they were normally tikkas and the like, one week i had a jalfrezi for a change and what was left was duly given to the dog without me thinking of how hot it was. he wolfed it down as normal, and then you could see his expression change and he drunk all his water. no more was thought of this after we had a bit of a laugh until i took him out the next day for his constitutional, when he went to the toilet i heard an almighty squeal and watched him scoot his bum over the wet grass. i know this shouldnt be funny but i was absoloutely howling with laughter.anybody else got any funny pet stories? :D :D :lol: :lol:

:lol: That's a great story and it reminded me of the staffy-cross I used to have. We took it to Porthcawl one day and he went wild in the sea. He was having the time of his life running in the water trying to catch the waves with his teeth. And in doing so he drank a lot of sea water.

As I was leading him up the beach I heard the enormous fart and saw a jet of sea water come from his back end. Thank goodness it was on a really quiet day - had it been a sunny bank hoilday there would have been a lot of very annoyed people. :lol:

Gods, where to start?

Well Alfie, the above pictured Wonderdog, is an endless source of puppydog tales. When we first got him, he didn't really know how to do stairs and was completely foxed by the turn at the bottom of said stairs. He got round this by charging down the stairs really fast and relying on ricocheting off the wall to get himself round the turn. For 18 months.

He's also tortured by a neighbours cat, who climbs up to peer in the windows at him, will tap at the window if he doesn't notice her right away then retreats a few feet to watch him fling himself against the glass in a righteously protective panic.

Or the time I came back to visit after moving away and he was so pleased to see me that when I shut him out of my room at night (allergies) he calmly spent a good hour dragging his blankets, water bowl and actual basket from it's usual place to right up against my door, rearranging the blankets in the basket and settling down to a long night of heavily sighing under the door to let me how much I didn't deserve his devotion.

I meant the neighbour's cat tapping on the window to wind up the dog. :wink:
