Keeper and BC

Post by Paulette B.Nol » Sat, 12 Jun 1999 04:00:00



I know I write about my dogs a lot,and now here is another "brag" about
Keeper.

She really could be something if I had more time or we wanted to go into
"show biz"

As some of you know she is a little dog, 68 pounds,and can walk on her
back legs,and jump in my arms.

Well a cat has adopted us. She had been around all last summer,but was
definitely "feral"
I would put food out for her,back in the woods, and she wouldn't come
near,unless noone was in sight.

My dogs do not know of cats...

Neither do I much...

Anyway,over the months she got a little braver,and this winter,my
husband took one of the windows out of the barn,so she could come and
go,we got her her own bed,and would always keep the wood stove going for
BC...(barn cat)

My dogs one at a time were introduced,and before long, the cat,and the
dogs got along,well at least the dogs didn't want to jump the
cat...much...

Keeper now,has fallen in love with BC,and they snuzzle together out in
the back,and the cat I think, think's she's a dog,as she relaxes on her
back.

She is a good cat,as far as cats go, I guess.
Yup,you guessed it,I am not really a cat person.
Anyway, we buy her this fancy food that comes in little trays that you
rip off the top.
Keeper's special trick now is to bring the cat food out to the barn,and
rip it open,and put it down for BC!

Then BC kisses Keeper and she eats,between Keeper's legs.

And That's It....

Hmm. You and I have a slightly different definition of "little".

Great story! You need some pics of this on your web site... I think
that'd be a hoot.

I love it.  Sometimes it goes the other way.  I heard a crash in the
kitchen and ran in to find Pazzaz (my youngest cat) on top of the
refrigerator having just pushed the dog food over the edge.  She was just
sitting there staring down demurely watching the dogs try to scarf what
they could before I spoiled their fun.

One of my dogs, Lily, allowed a stray kitten to nurse from her for
weeks... and all three of my dogs love the cats and spend lots of time
grooming them. What amazes me is that the cats allow it. They
generallly sleep together in a large ball on MY bed -- which  may
explain why I wake up feeling like a truck ran over me :-)

Re not being a cat person, I used to be Just a cat person, although I
loved dogs. I lived in NYC at the time and didn't feel I could do well
by a dog. My first dog was raised by my cats so she adopted many cat
behaviors. One day I looked out the window to see her crouched and
wiggling her ***like cats do just before they pounce. I almost died
laughing!

Oh yeah, I forgot...maybe one of the catfood companies would just LOVE
to use Keeper and BC for a commercial!

I know that she isn't "little" I guess, but she seems so  petite and dainty
to me,and so very LIGHT!

Oh that is too great.  My dogs love cats and would never do anything
like this.  They practically *live* for stealing the cats' food (and
poop)!  :-)

Well, obviously that's why she was a "Keeper."  Some of 'em you just can't
let go of.

Harlan is 40-45 lb. It would probably amuse you to know that the first
time Best Beloved saw him, he said "He's so HUGE." (I think everyone
was used to my sister's Pom).

Terri, I haven't really been paying attention to this thread, but I
saw my name and slammed on the brakes, as usual, but I don't really
know what kind of "work" you're talking about.

You want some pics of Harlan posted on my Web site?

If so, you bet.  Just send it along attached to an e-mail and I'll put
up a page for it.  

Or does Gracie?

Either way, I'd be happy to oblige.

Just let me know, eh?

Thanks, that's very kind, but I've already slapped a bunch of Harlan
pics at http://www.moonsgarden.com/~twillis/Harlan/harlan.html, if ya wanna see
what the little *** looks like. Maybe _you_ can guess what breeds he
is!

(There's also a pic or two of me, but no, please do not guess what
breeds I am, at least not in public.)
