    My Golden Lab

    He was sitting on my bed this morning. My daughter knocked and came in and sat on the edge of the bed. Our cat, who we lock out of the bedroom so he does not keep us awake, was standing in the doorway. Occasionally, both our pets can occupy the same space without killing each...

    He was a carnaptious bloody minded foul tempered cross breed of a lurcher . He calmed down a tad when we had him seen to at the vets, but I think he still had it in for us. He may have reasoned he was beaten but he would take pleasure in showing that he was still very much his...
