TO ALL NON-PET OWNERS WHO VISIT AND LIKE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT OUR PETS:

(1) They live here, You don't.
(2) If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it 'fur'-niture.
(3) I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
(4) To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons/daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly.

Remember, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:
(1) eat less,
(2) don't ask for money all the time,
(3) are easier to train,
(4) normally come when called,
(5) never ask to drive the car,
(6) don't hang out with drug-using people;
(7) don't smoke or drink,
(8) don't want to wear your clothes,
(9) don't have to buy the latest fashions,
(10) don't need a gazillion dollars for college and
(11) if they get pregnant, you can sell their children
Received this in an email and thought it was cute. All in good fun!

OMGoodness,,, Skye is so cute in pink! That is definately her color...

Our cat is like one of our kids. Spoiled rotten!!!

Nikia, May & da kids said...

Oh my word that is funny, I don't own pets for two reasons:
1 - I'm not responsible enough. I barely parent right, lol.
2 - I might like a pet better than my boys and kick the kids out, haha.
Although I like your reasons 1-5 and #10 is my ultimate favorite!
If someone hates your lil' dog, they might not be people you want in your home anyways = )

Looks like Skye is all ready for winter! Very cute!

Cherie said...

LOL! I have to say that we love our dog but she won't wear cute clothes like Skye. I guess #9 applies to our Zoe!

Michele said...

Dont you love how people come to YOUR house and then want to tell you how to live? Like it is their house? I feel like saying "If you dont like the way we do things here, then you dont have to come. Really. I wont be offended."

Utah Grammie said...

Darling..and I totally agree with your list....

Randi Troxell said...

I love that email! So true! We have 4 cats, 2 dogs, the hedgehog and a fish to go along with our 4 kids. It's always chaos!

To answer your question... get ready for Christmas?! I still can't figure out how we'll do that. We had to rearrange the upstairs to make room for a tree. Now the tree has to be dug out from the closet under the front room and I have to decide just how many decorations I want to deal with. But it must be done as we are plannign to have the family Christmas eve gathering at our home this year. (Easier than taking the boys somewhere)

Have a wonderful day, and I'll get that coupon out to you!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

See I knew I should have got a cat instead of having kids! Insert head slap here ... lOL ;)

Too cute my dear!

ModernMom said...

LOL "fur" niture.

Always a Southern Girl said...

Love that list. I tell my hubby that all the time. Our pets give us unconditional love, our children do not! :-)

Yaya said...

That picture is adorable!

blueviolet said...

That was really cute and I'd wager that a lot of people agree with all of it.

Skye is too cute in her outfit!

Katherine said...

I'm laughing so hard at that last item right now. Yes, yes you can sell them. What an incentive! Great stuff. I used to feel that way about my cats.

nancygrayce said...

Love it!!!! Also, the police never come to your door! :)

I love her Christmas outfit!

A Stitch In Thyme said...

Oh Here Here!! The animals are every bit as much a part of our family as any humans. Great list. Hugs. Tammy

Kirby3131 said...

That's cute lol Although my cat doesn't want to wear my clothes, she does want to sleep on them lol

HeartsMakeFamilies said...

I absolutely adore skye's outfit.

I totally agree with your list as well. I hate when people tell me that my kids are messy..much less my pets.

Holly said...

Aw, Skye looks adorable!! I thought that list was so funny! Especially 'fur'-niture. hahaha

noelle said...

What a fun start to my day. I love the part about the "fur"-niture. She's adorable...I'd choose her over people any day!
