  1. Hah! I think that the most dog-like thing is that she doesn’t say, “I TOLD you!” when you realize you should have listened.

    I wonder if I can ever talk my husband into getting a furry pet? Right now I have one pet: my sourdough starter (does fungus count?).

  2. Good dog you have there! My dog is like an alarm system; whenever there’s people outside or by the door, my dog starts barking. =)

  3. @ Simple in France: Nice thing about fungus is you don’t have to take it to the vet. 😉

    @ Jersey Mom: Weirdly, the reason Cassie’s former humans gave for dumping her at the Humane Society was “Barks.” Maybe she was trying to tell them something, too…

  4. I love dogs but the previous owners of the house we bought last year had three dogs. You won’t believe how much dog hair we’ve lifted out of every nook and cranny for the next 6 months since we moved in. We’re just so grossed out that we’re holding off on furry pets until the cooties have subsided… may take years, or at least until our daughter is old enough to bug us that she wants one.

    • @ arm-and-leg-safe: Dog dunes!!!!! They say it can take six months to a year to get all the dog or cat hair out of a house. Try putting a microfiber cloth on the head of a Swiffer (not the paper things that Swiffer sells). Use this to wipe down the walls from ceiling to floor. Pet hair can settle on walls and ceilings and sit there electrostatically for a while. Breezes and changes in humidity then cause it to sift down on to the floor eventually. The wall-cleaning strategy won’t get rid of all the hair right away, but it may speed things along.

      My house has all hard floors, for a reason. It’s easy for me to get up all the dog hair with a vacuuming followed by a thorough dustmopping, and it makes it possible to get the hair out from under the bed and other heavy furniture. I wouldn’t have a dog in a house with carpets.

  5. Oh my! OH MY! I hope Cassie also got a treat!

    Was watching that B movie about the volcano in New York the other night (I know – but I LIKE stupid B movies!) anywho – the man is in the front yard watering, and the dog (in the house) starts to bark, and bark, and bark. After yelling at the “Stupid” dog to shut up (several times) the guy opens the door to really shut him up – yep volcano ate him from inside the house – but ate the “stupid” dog too.

    Moral of both stories – learn to listen when someone/thing is talking to you!

    Glad you are okay and your volcano didn’t eat you.
