This is worth a try, even if it doesn't succeed.

Some of us Mudcat members, albeit not all of us,
share our households and our lives with MBF .
There have been failed attempts in the past
to have a thread, similar to a "Mudcats have Cats"/"Cats" thread,
for those of us
for whom life without MBF is not complete.

But when the thread title contains the "d" word,
it seems to bring out the "d" haters amongst Mudcat members
and in no time the thread has been trashed beyond recovery.

Can't we have peace amongst the Mudcatters
AND
a thread for the, ahem, fanciers of the canine companion?

Me, my accommodations permit neither C-A-T nor M-B-F,
but both animals are near and dear to my heart.


And regardless of what transpires,
any opinions on what M-B-F stands for
could at least be good for a few laughs.

I don't recall any examples of dog haters, only one particular Mudcatter who dislikes them. If this is an attempt to call him out, don't do it.

Two weeks ago I spent three nights sleeping in a clothes closet with my three dogs to keep us all warm and alive during that long Texas freeze complete with power outage. It was mutually beneficial and they enjoyed the close proximity. When asked about that really tough week, I can tell people that as far as the dogs were concerned we went on a four-day-three-night camping trip in my closet.

Dogs can be so empathetic that when they do what they know is wrong they can look so pathetically guilty that our own empathy is prone to forgive them immeditely. They know how to change the subject with a guitly look.

My eyes are a bit 'dodgy' this morning and I thought this said MDF households'. (Medium Density Fibreboard) This started an ungovernable train of thought as I wondered why on earth one would have fibreboard as a building material for a house.
Then I saw it was MBF and 'googled' it. Muscle Burning Fat?? eh?
Anyway, if this is about cats, I love 'em. If it's about dogs, I love 'em too. Foxes? Okay. Fleas? Nah.

During that now-famous Texas freeze last month I spent three nights in a 5'x6' closet on a stack of backpacking/camping pads in a down sleeping bag. I built a wide pallet for the dogs with another pad and a yoga mat and a big dog cover that normally goes over the sofa to keep hair and mud off of the furniture - and we four slept in there during the four days of no power.

The first night they weren't sure what to expect and I got up a couple of times to take them out to the yard, but after that they realized we were going to sleep there all night and they stayed put. It was so much warmer in the closet, as uncomfortable as the positioning was for me (I'm a little taller than the space where I had the mats and I couldn't quite sleep diagonally because there is a built-in shelf thing that was in the way).

There was always a little jockeying for position when we first got into bed for the night, but then they settled down. I had lots of chew toys in there to distract them. The three are a 75-pound Labrador retriever, a 45-pound Blue Heeler, and a 35-pound boxer-pit mix mutt. The temperature was up to between 60-70 degrees by morning. They loved our camping trip in the closet.

Stilly,
I hope that your dogs' chew toys were not
the kind with SQUEAKERS in them.

Some of those squeak toys are SHRILL.
I can hardly bear to think of lying there together
in the closet all night
AND you suddenly get woken up by
SQUEEEEEAK   SQUEEEEEEEAK    ...

... and then there are those dogs
who chew THROUGH their chew toys.

I watched one afternoon as a purebred Border Terrier bitch,
very pregnant and desperately bored,
accepted the present of a brand new rubber chew toy,
and proceeded to work the darned thing
until it was in bits and pieces.

This was one determined little brown dog.

is it My Best Friend? All the people round here have mainly two dogs, and they walk past our house, stopping for a chat while I sit on The Bench. Their 'Best Friends' are delightful, and I always heave myself up to give them a pat and a stroke.
I do like all creatures. I have two bluebottle flies buzzing around in our sitting room who seem fond of me.I call them Bill and Jeremy. I give them a little bit of ham from time to time. My neighbour says, "Yew orter be certifoid!!" (She may be right!)

Good dogs have an unqualified empathy, forgiveness, loyalty, a quest for joy and if you listen very carefully, talk truthfully beneath their breathe.
If a person has even half of those things, marry them.
You will get used to the aroma.

We don't have dogs because we are cat people but I like most dogs when I see them out walking with their humans, unless they are aggressive or out of control - the dogs and/or the humans. LOL

Our new cat Polly craps randomly all over my big garden, flower beds, veg plot, everywhere. She's bloody useless at burying it, which is good, as I'm far less likely to grab a blob of it when I'm weeding. I haven't seen rabbit damage for three months, and that's for the first time in years. I'm sure these facts are connected.

She a lovely pussycat, by the way. We're over the moon.

Trapping dogs in households in the bondage of ownership is akin to the conservatorship of Brittany Spears. The freedom movement for dogs is compromised by a lack of adequate translators and income production. Once those hurdles are overcome perhaps dogs could get a seat at the United Nations.

Or perhaps "Brittany Ferries" is a brand unfamiliar to Americans. It's a company that runs giant car/passenger ferries between England, France and Spain.

Isn't explaining jokes awful?

I hope she has some idea how fortunate she is.

I think it's "Britney." I wasn't picking Donuel up on his spelling, just opportunistically using it to make a feeble joke...

In similar vein is a pretty old one. We have a folk singer this end called Isla St Clair. The joke goes, if Isla St Clair married Barry White, divorced him then married Bryan Ferry, would she be Isla White-Ferry?

(We have an Isle of Wight ferry, you see...)
