      Wonderful to start my day with a laugh. This article describes my sisters to a T. Dog people are indeed their own breed. I love dogs but don’t want all the work, so I switched to being a cat person. So, yeah, I’m one of those people! What I find fascinating are Ferret people. Did you ever see one of those running around - like a horrifying Slinky!

      😂 Misery as Comedy writing. I belly laughed several times. Who should we feel more for the writer or the pet? 😉

      OMG -

      deliver an almighty deposit out of his grotesque canine digestive system, a monstrous Mordor of a place filled with sulphur and God-knows-what toxins.

      And the KFC bones on the couch line.

      Hilarious indeed.

        The Mordor reference killed me, too! :)

        Another self-absorbed writer which I can say because I was one! I feel sorry for the wife, kids and dog—and the cat next door!!!
