Forgot a few

Ok, in order to understand this blog, you need to read Harry's blog from today first. He listed the many many animals that we have taken in over the years, and their imaginery cost to him. He admits not listing them all, but I just couldn't believe he would forget these guys. In his defense, he does have one of Jax and himself. This one is of Jax and Doobie. Yes, we named him Doobie for the reason you might think. He was a mentally challenged cat, who had the noted skill of eating from his dish while pooing similtaneously. Mmm, yep, guess who got to clean that up? I'll give you a clue, it wasn't Harry.

And then we move on to endearing family member number 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. That's right our cat Cuda was just a tramp, plain and simple. Here she is with her nursing brood of kittens. You get to guess again, who had to clean out the litter box? Well, you'd be wrong, I had to go to LA with Harry for surgery, so Sarah and our poor neighbors had to do the massive scooping. One day we came home from work and heard this squeaking noise under Sarah's bed. Huge Cuda went from rotund to rather skinny with 7 babies at her side. Sarah was in kitten heaven.

And on to family addition #10, that we just can't leave out. BABY EMMA ! Yeah, Sarah came home from NMC one day saying there was only 2 puppies left under a building at NMC and could we please adopt one? Knowing Jax was getting old, I thought it might be the right time to introduce a new dog to the family, and hopefully Jax would have company in his old age and be able to teach her how to be a good dog. How silly am I? Jax just wanted her to go away. And she had to get a dog training collar to learn how to be a good dog. We told Sarah, ok, we'll take her, but Sarah had to clean up all the puppy training messes. To her credit, she did clean up most of them. Here's the fat little girl dog.
