24. The White House lawn is just the right height for pooping

I'm glad Barack got re-elected for Bo's sake. And I didn't want to see Bo lose his Boeing 747 privileges.

Never

Because Atheism isn't any kind of religion.


And all I saw were garlands and the pagan Tannenbaum.

And a wish for JOY to EVERYONE.

What religious symbols?


Well, I suppose "dog" is "god" backwards.

17. Wow! great post

There are atheists all around us. The problem
is they are unaware of their atheism. Each
time they recite our anthem they pledge atheism.

The deity is understood to be GOD. If you understand
GOD you do not say I pledge allegiance to God. If you
pledge then you doubt. If you put GOD on your
flag or your money you do not have faith. Faith is
like affection ... it is natural.

what is this religion you speak of? As far as the decorations go, those trace back to pagans.

49. Huh?


I didn't see any decorations that had anything to do with the Christian aspect of Christmas. The trees, lights, garland, etc, etc., are derived more from the pagan celebration of the holiday.

4. Creepy how dogs and certain animals can behave just like humans.

 

Sometimes I think they behave better.

We had a family of crows on our property and they did things I just thought were really curious. I then read about how smart crows are and know how they recognize and interact with individual humans.. I asked my mother who grew up on a farm and she verified some of their habits.

I wonder if Bo disapproved of anything and left his mark

12. I know ...

any one of my three dogs would have left a "present" on the tree.

(They are 11 year old, male, Poodles that refuse to be housebroken. Everytime they come close, one will forget his manners and the other two will follow behind to add their contribution. BTW, does anyone know whether it's too late? Or, should I just resign myself to daily "pee pee patrol?")

They don't bow to the alpha man as easily as other dogs do.

50. I love poodles too, but Bo is a Portuguese water dog.

I saw a poodle at the dog park the other day with a shaggy cut and I thought that he was a Portuguese water dog. They can be easily mistaken for each other.

48. My beautiful cocker spaniel was housebroken at age 10-11

He came from rescue and had never been housebroken before, had been a "stud dog" at a "commercial kennel." He was rescued after he became too old and found me. I had him for eight wonderful years, had such a sweet temperament and was the best dog I ever had for not going in the house. It just took patience and a schedule.

53. Well Step #1 is: Make sure they have all been neutered. If they haven't,

you are completely stuck with dogs that will pee everywhere.

10. This will put the rw evangelicals

over the edge. Last year they had a fit because he was on the Christmas card and they had handmade replicas of him around the decorations.

They were made out of garbage bags etc. by volunteers, cost us nothing but the rw was screaming about it anyway.

They cannot love anything except themselves. I love Bo and so glad to see they treat him like a member of the family.
