My cat has a love/hate relationship with the blinds in my house.

Some background information: “Crumbs” has been with me for the last nine years; he’s a particularly large (and endearingly dopey) black and white short haired moggy that I got as a 10 week old kitten.

Crumb’s bad habits are generally few and far-between (though he does have a tendency to “hunt” soggy tea-bags which he then proudly deposits at my feet), but there is one behavior that I find particularly vexing – his obsession with the blinds in my bedroom.

Whenever my back is turned or I’m out of the room, you can guarantee that he’s playing with those blinds! It’s like they’re irresistible to him… But only until the daft creature finds himself tangled in them, at this point he decides that they’re some sort of deadly foe to be fought heroically! Until I tell him off at which point he usually slinks out of the room.

John Boydston, also known as Daddy A Go Go, sent us a link to the YouTube video of his song called, “I Think I Might Be A Dog.” He was hoping we got a kick out of it and guess what – we did. And we think you will, too.

Imagine, if dogs ran the internet, or at least had their own world wide web? Think about how different it would look, especially those interactive sites where we go to check in with our friends, network and generally waste time. I’d imagine those would have some differences, although the concepts would be eerily similar since, after all, dogs are territorial animals — like us — and would only allow other dogs they knew and liked access to their internet spaces. Strange dogs would only be accepted if they came with established cronies, and even then would be under close scrutiny for a while.

There would probably be at least a few not-so-subtle differences . . .

“Forsooth and alack, ’tis an awkward plight . . .” muttered Will, the English Mastiff as he tried to maneuver through the doorway and into the lobby after being stitched up. The difficulty caused by the slight sway and stagger from the anesthesia that hadn’t quite worn off was exacerbated by the giant plastic cone — Elizabethan collar — that encircled his head like a . . . well, like an Elizabethan collar.

Dane sent me a link for a video that features a guy named Dan and a cat named Sheeba playing Risk (the board game). I have to admit, it’s pretty funny and pretty silly – but what got me is Sheeba’s cat cone thingy. Notice hers is signed (like a cast)! How sweet is that…

This guest post comes to me from Caroline, too busy for her own blog but not too busy to jot down a day in the life every now and then. She’s kind enough to share an adventure every now and then and recently sent me this little snippet about friendship, and her walk on the wild side…

Journal Entry: July 10, 1973 (age 4)

Now that I’m four, I get to go over to my friends’ houses sometimes, as long as one of the parents is home. My favorite places to go are Jackie Gosney’s house and Brian West’s house. They both live on James Street on Binghamton’s South Side, just a few doors from our green, two-family house on Vine
