CL, he's a longhair dachshund. He's supposed to be a miniature, but I'd say he's more a "tweenie"; not quite miniature not quite standard.

I think it's strange animal week.

On Sunday, a neighborhood cat decided to tag along with DH to work. The cat acted like this was not the first he done this.

Today he seen a st bernard running away from home. He was walking down the street with his head down looking sad, carrying his food dish. We're guessing someone forgot to feed him, so he was going to them. We're cracking up picturing the owner getting a surprise visitor at work.

I love how you treat Calvin, springy.

The sight of a St. Bernard walking down the street carrying his food bowl had to have been something. Commercial-worthy, for certain.

Thank you, Ninja.

I would have loved to see that St. Bernard, I can't imagine how hilarious that was!!

I wish I could have seen it too. He was slowing down traffic even though he was on the sidewalk because people were watching him. It's hard not to get wowed by their size.

We were picturing him waiting outside in the parking lot surprising his owner at lunch break. Or perhaps managing to get inside the building and plopping the bowl down on their desk.

Those are one of my all time favorite breeds, cute, huge, and always seem so calm and well behaved. They're like a massive teddy bear you just gotta hug. I love seeing them at the vet. They can be surrounded by craziness and barking dogs, and they're lying on the floor as if they're oblivious to it.

They are very calm, aren't they?

I hear they drool.

My pibbles drool. So did my boxer.

One of my poodles had a runny nose.

I saw an Old English Sheepdog this morning on the way to work.

TRBL, I loved your description of Ed. He does get the teeth out and attack more than swat though.

Right now I really want a doggie who loves me. I request that all you doggie owners give your puppers and extra hug & pat on the head for me.

Thanks for your cooperation.

My Bear (St Bernard and Irish Setter mix) was 200+ pounds, smart, calm, well behaved, and very drooly. There's probably a pic of him in this thread somewhere. He loved all other animals and most adults but hated kids. And we think he might have eaten a couple Jehovah's witnesses once. : )

TRBL, Calvin says he can come visit for a few days to give you a snuggle fix.

My father in law had a great dane that was an inside dog and we'd all cover ourselves with whatever was near (sometimes it was another person) when he shook his head. Drool shower is NOT a good thing. Rambo was a great dog.

I'm used to it (drool). It's surprisingly resilient on walls and windows, though.

Default Funny from the SO this morning...

The Heggle cat (Hedwig)

A ferocious predator. The picture of deadly stealth, silent death. Nothing that moves in the house escapes the supernatural awareness of this vicious being….except a crinkly, noisy snake that when slid across the floor, rasping the entire way, is able to bump into the butt of said ferocious kitteh causing it to jump up in the air like a frog…butt hanging down and rear legs up against her blubbery belly…

Sasha has learned 2 new things: 1) she can't fit into a dixie cup. 2) if she climbs up my pretty skirts she can get to the top shelf of my closet. My husband thought it was funny, I wanted to cry. I have many skirts made of delicate material. She's apparently been doing this for about a week. I have 2 newish flowy skirts made of easily frayed material. I haven't even worn them yet. I'm scared to look.

So Sasha is not allowed to attack our feet. Her latest tactic is she pounces, and mid-air she rolls so she lands on her side on top of our feet. Of course she has to catch herself by grabbing onto our legs. I can just see her saying "But ma, I didn't attack you. I just fell. . . . 10 times!"

Sasha is probably thinking, "I didn't attack, the feet just happened to be in the way of my jumping practice"

Ed now has a fleece blanket in his new den.
