Top 20 Reasons Dogs Don't Use Comnputers

18) Hard to read the monitor with your head cocked to one side. 17) Too difficult to "mark" every website they visit.
16) Can't help attacking the screen when they hear "You've Got Mail." 15) Fire hydrant icon simply frustrating.

10) Waiting for the introduction of the Microsoft Opposable Thumb. 9) Three words: Carpal Paw Syndrome

Always alot of Love in Our House!

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it, he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother of pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.

When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?"

"This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.

"Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man asked.

"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up." The man gestured, and the gate began to open.

"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the traveler asked.

"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going. After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road which led through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.

"Excuse me!" he called to the reader. "Do you have any water?"

"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there" The man pointed to a place that couldn't be seen from outside the gate. "Come on in."

"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog.

"There should be a bowl by the pump."

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree waiting for them. "What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

"This is Heaven," was the answer.

"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "the man down the road said that was Heaven, too."

"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's Hell."

"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?"

"No. I can see how you might think so, but we're just happy that they screen out the folks who'll leave their best friends behind."

Trying to help mIkIE pack for his Christmas trip home to NC
mIkIE and the Reign Family
1.The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.
2.I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.
3.I will not roll my toys behind the fridge, behind the sofa or under the bed.
4.I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before entering the house.
5.I will not eat the cats' food, before they eat it or after they throw it up.
6.I will stop trying to find the few remaining pieces of clean carpet in the house when I am about to get sick.
7.I will not throw up in the car.
8.I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.
9."Kitty box crunchies", although they are tasty, are not food.
10.I will not eat any more Kleenex or napkins and then redeposit them in the backyard after processing.
11.I will not chew crayons or pens, especially not the red ones, or my people will think I am hemorrhaging.
12.We do not have a doorbell. I will not bark each time I hear one on TV.
13.The sofa is not a face towel. Neither are mom & dad's laps.
14.My head does not belong in the refrigerator.
15.I will not play tug-of-war with dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.
16.I will not play "roll around in the dirt" after just getting a bath.
17.Sticking my nose into someone's crotch is not an acceptable way of saying hello.
18.I will not fart in my owners face while sleeping on the pillow next to his head.
19.I will not come in from outside and immediately drag my butt across the carpet.
20.The toilet bowl is not a never ending water supply and, just because the water is blue, it does not mean it is cleaner.
21.I will not sit in the middle of the living room and lick my crotch when company is over.
22.Suddenly turning around and smelling my butt makes people put me outside.
23.The cat is not a squeaky toy so when I play with him and he makes that noise, it's usually not a good thing.
