* Humor* things our cairns must remember


Recommended Posts

I saw this on another forum and thought we could apply some of these rules to our Cairns . . . . .

1. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.

2. The garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.

3. I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.

4. I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.

5. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.

6. I will not eat the cats' food, before or after they eat it.

7. I will stop trying to find the few remaining pieces of clean carpet in the

house when I am about to throw up.

8. I will not throw up in the car.

9. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc.

10. I will not lick my human's face after eating animal poop.

11. "Kitty box crunchies" are not food.

12. I will not eat any more socks and then redeposit them in the backyard

after processing.

13. The diaper pail is not a cookie jar.

14. I will not wake Mommy up by sticking my cold, wet nose up her bottom end.

15. I will not chew my human's toothbrush and not tell them.

16. I will not chew crayons or pens, especially not the red ones, or my people will think I am hemorrhaging.

17. When in the car, I will not insist on having the window rolled down when it's raining outside.

18. We do not have a doorbell. I will not bark each time I hear one on TV.

19. I will not steal my Mom's underwear and dance all over the back yard with it.

20. The sofa is not a face towel. Neither are Mom & Dad's laps.

21. My head does not belong in the refrigerator.

How sad that I can identify with most of those on the list.

I would lilke to add one:

22. I will not find gross things while playing in the yard and bring them inside to Mom and Dad. A humans idea of "treasure" is not the same as a dogs.

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.

What a hoot!! And how true. Sadly I, too, can identify with most of those. For those of us who have owned cairns before, we tend not to be too surprised by some (okay, most) of those listed.
