My Pacco, and well, I feel that some pals here like Pacco too, so, Our Pacco came from the Sequoia Humane Society, where he had been sequestered for a month. Found trudging down US 101, near KMart. Ads in paper, no one called until Me.

Yeh, it would kill me to do that but I would also probably need to do it.. Unfortunately I am allergic to dogs. Yes, I lied on interview, since I had had a dog for ten years even though I have allergies, before this. But I lucked out, I am not allergic to the Pacc. and I would have kept him in any case. But working in a whole kennel for a day I would go into anaphylaxis or some such thing.

I have thought of taking Pacco back there to show the people a happy result but y'know, I don't want to do that, exactly. Might worry him.

I'll say you lucked out, osso. Sometimes people do get what they deserve. Dogs too.

So I'm gone for a bit, and what do I find when I return? More cat teeth brushing, duck chasing, poop eating, and dog flatulence. Rolling Eyes

I could never work at the ASPCA or the Humane Society. Allergies and heart break. I'm a member of both organizations, though. And all my pets have been rescued, except for the parakeets.

Patiodog, I salute your volunteering at the Humane Society.

You folks may not be aware of how fortunate you are to have pets who like to be brushed. The Monster is not so inclined. When the shedding gets to be too much I have two approaches to choose from:

1. Quick and sneaky: I carry a brush in my pocket. When the Monster isn't looking, I run it through his coat and then put it back in my pocket. Twenty or thirty of these sneak attacks, and, voila, the Monster is brushed. Very Happy
2. Full-out assault: I don a coat and thick gloves. I corner the Monster and start brushing. He gloms onto one of my body parts and gnaws as I brush. Despite all my protection, I've yet been able to finish before he has worked his way past all my wardrobial protection and reached skin. Then the brushing is over. Twisted Evil

I'm living with a maniac.

Maybe, but you love him madly, truly, etc ...Yes?
AND I'm sure it's mutual!
Ah, a match made in heaven! Very Happy

I like Monster. And any personnalitied cats. That makes them to be more like dogs! (a dog person speaking, can you tell?)

Man, I thought all animals liked to be brush.

Nail trimming is another story altogether. Big scratches in my (rented) hardwood floor from both of the critters trying to escape the clippers. Their pads get wet and their hearts palpitate at the sight of the things.

Damn those survival instincts.

Nail trimming, thanks for reminding me. Today may be the day...

I comb Pacco out with a steel comb, which gets at that tough corgi underhair. This is not the gentlest item in the world, but he thinks its wonderful.

Hey, if you want to drive up and trim my dogs, too, you're more than welcome. It's only two states away. I'll give you a beer...

Had three Belgian Sheepdogs over the years. Two loved to be brushed, the third, an alpha-was-a-male, would growl and bare his fangs during the entire process. If you hurt him by accident, he'd bite. You don't want to get bit by one of these dogs, though they are usually quite friendly, they are a large working dog with plenty of power and speed:

Now I only have two birds, a parakeet and a cockatiel. The occasional wing clipping can be quite dangerous if not undertaken with great care and protective gear.

we brush and wash our cocker spaniel with a muzzle on. there is no other way, my mother still has multiple scars on her hands. lately we just have him trimmed really short, nearly shaved. that helps, especially in the summer, for he seems to love to stroll through briars and any sticky plants.

cjhsa, those dogs are GORGEOUS! Wow.

Dagmaraka, Mikey has plenty of personality, as do all cats I've ever encountered. I love dogs too. But I wouldn't want a dog to be like a cat or vice versa.

Olga, Yes, I love that little fuzzy lunatic. And yes, he loves me. He does have his sweet and loving moments. But mostly he nuts.

patiodog, Mikey has neurodermatosis, so sometimes it hurts him to be touched. He's much better than he used to be. But he can still be quite sensitive. This is why I don't brush him often. But sometimes he's shedding like crazy and very hairbally. I gotta do something.

Osso, So today is nail clipping day. Good luck.

i have select cats that really grew on me. all of them do have a great personnality. now that i think of it, those select cats are basically all the cats i am acquainted with. i never considered myself a cat person, as i grew up with dogs, that's all. i hope i did not offend the feelings of any cat lovers, that certainly was not my intention.

cjhsa, what incredibly great dogs, and beautiful photo.

Roberta, turns out tomorrow is the day. Clippers on the side counter...waiting for the dog lift. That is, we do a two person grabandclip. I hold and sooth the pacc and my business partner clips swiftly. Or slips quipply. What a gooooood boy he is....

Dagmaraka, I grew up around dogs too. My mother and her family had a strange superstition about cats. They were anathema in my family. I was absolutely not offended by anything you said. I just wanted to express my view about cats and personality. And that dogs and cats are different, and viva la difference.

Osso, Manana? Good Pacco. It will be over before you know it. Good Pacco.

Beautiful, cjhsa. I guess I never saw a Belgian Sheepdog before.

not to worry though, he makes it on the list of the cats i acquaintanc-ed (what the heck, why not), that is the 2 cats i know now closely and adore unconditionally (except while tooth-brushing).
