    ‘There is no situation that cannot be improved by going for a walk’…

    Tell that to BP.

    Clearly, the *real* FDOTM is a total wimp.
    Running scared from a mere vacuum cleaner?
    Just wait till the Onthemoon family start blowing away the dust with a vuvuzela. πŸ™‚

    Did you read HG’s spray over the 4-0 loss to Germany over at Unleashed ? Hilarious to the max.

    On that basis, FD should be on the honours list any day now. I can see it now – arise, Sir First.

    On that basis, you might like the Queen’s Birthday greeting over at the pigsarms. Dogs in that too. Corgis.

    Great to see you giving the politcal crap a miss for a day or so, FD. Excellent take on the life of a dog of a dog.

    PS – so what happened about the bird getting rid of the annoying pop-up ? Cut you no ice with her Wrennishness, FD ?

    Ain’t it the truth, as Andy Cox from The Fauves said:

    Dogs are the best people
    Still tame, still wild, still somehow civilised
    With his bone and his bowl
    And his little chocolate eyes
    Dogs are the best people

    And I’m a cat.
    But we’re way above people.

    what about when you throw olive at it?
    hmmm, “you can be a real dickhead sometimes” and yes he would be right
    ps our mutts dislike the chainsaw even more than the vaccy

    Things my dog says:
    “Open the door please, I need a tree”

    Things my dog does not say:
    “It’s OK, I picked it up myself”

    ERN: “For, tho’ he cannot fly, he is an excellent clamberer.”

    Ern, you will of course be familiar … not intimately … with Christopher Smart’s Cat Jeoffry from ‘Jubilate Agno’.

    I had hoped to find opportunity to graciously mention.

    Sandshoe: Ta for the Smart tip. Will pore over it.
    I’ve been invited over for breakfast drinks tomorrow with James Joyce’s cat.
    Bloomin’ heck, could be a long day

    Don’t you mean you’ll paw over it?

    Strewth, who else’s cat do you have in your address book…

    This seems timely to say, by the way, congratulations on becoming your own Cat, EMC. πŸ™‚
