      Mom has a cat,nice little slightly evil cat,mom then gets really big black lab,lab likes cat just fine,cat does not share affection,at first-two weeks later I walk in and see 1 125# black lab,lying on the floor with 1 six pound cat hugging it with both paws and giving it a bath,traitors,traitors I tell'ya

      New trick is coperation,cat knocks big shoe boxes,hat box,and one basket of laundry off mom's bed to make room for 125# black lab so it can then snuggle up with 125# black lab,only one problem,I come home see 125# black lab trying to hide behind the last remaining shoebox on bed,kinda like an elephant hiding behind a park bench,cat nowhere to be seen,devious
      I just need one more tool,just one!

        It's kinda funny watching an 8 pound Siamese cat cleaning the ears of a Karelian Bear Dog. That's the sort of dog we have, it can kill a bear and will, given the chance. Siamese is gone now, old age.

          My shop alarm is now close to 15 pounds. Still wide open all the time. I got bite marks all over, they tell me it is a social skills problem. He does not know he is hurting me, only that biting feels good to his gums. Letting him play with the neighbors pup has helped. I used to bite my kids back, that stopped them from biting people. Sounds mean but worked. I had teeth then thou. Ha.. Now they are in a cup.

          Working on a harley in my home-shop. I kept getting out 1/2" wrenches. I'd turn around and it'd be gone. I would get another out of the tool box. Pretty soon I was out and could not find one. Sure enough "butch" had carried them off. I think I found most of them.

          If I can only teach him how to run the lathe?

            I would send you a piece of my sisters meatloaf (if I could break of a chunk, that is), but there is two problems with that:

            1) The US government says if they can't identify it they won't let it through customs, and
            2) My lawyer says I cannot be held morally or financially accountable for the dogs welfare or inevitable denture work under any circumstances whatsoever and any mental pain and anguish or trauma it may experience in licking said meatloaf.

            That's the way it has to be bro

              In today's paper they said that my local Fred Meyer was recalling beef products because they got some of the beef from the one known case of Mad Cow desease. It seems that they were supposed to have stopped feeding cows the brains and organs of other cows way back in 1997. So now they have to change the age of the cow. Do you know what they do with the brains and organs now? They make cat food! (I learned this from C-Span Washington Journal 12/28/03 from a call-in)
              So now it isn't even safe to eat cats anymore. What will be next? Do you wonder what your cat is thinking? It might be nothing; nothing at all.

                    I am going to sic my karelian bear dog on any mad cows we spot in the neighbourhood. She will kill them and eat the brains.

                      Two cows meet up in the middle of a pasture. One cow says to the other "Man, did you hear about Molly? I hear she's just gone nuts with that Mad Cow desease. Thats the fifth cow this week! I'm really getting scared! How about you?

                      The second cow says "Hell no, I'm not scared a bit."
                      The first cow says "Why not?"

                      The second cow says "Because I'm a rabbit!"

                        Some of the "information" that is coming out on this is ridiculous. Such as them saying on the news this morning that parts of the cow were sold in certain states. Just how do they know that? I've yet to see any serial numbers on packaged meat. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think meat is tracked by lot number to the end retailer.

                          It was several worn out dairy cows from one herd. They became something like 10,000# of ground beef, and were distributed through several retailers.
                          Records were kept from the cow's ear tag.
                          The cow was originally from Canada. Some sort of plot to destroy the American beef market probably.

                            The part I don't like is the "but the meat is safe" line. What I know about "Prions" is that it is a protein that is nearly indestructable and it persists and causes its damage. Nervous system tissue must exist in all the tissues as far as I know. Also this cow didn't grow up in a vacuum and eat alone. When you see a mouse, you can be pretty sure there are more mice. My question is whether or not the practice of feeding these cow byproducts to cows was really curtailed in 1997.

                              What I find most interesting is how everyone speaking out on this in the US suddenly says that there is no safety issue after all. That's not what they said when a single BSE cow was found in Canada this year. Took the US about 10 minutes to ban our beef, and our cow wasn't in the food chain at all.

                                Spence,

                                It was curtailed 1997 but there is a loophole you can drive a mad cow herd through. It is still permissible to feed animal byproducts to pigs and chickens so if cows are in the same barnyard there is every possibility that they will eat some of that feed. This is still the case today in Canada and the US.
