This somehow reminds me of an incident at Uni...

One of the professors, who wasn't liked very much, always brought his dog (labradorish) with him. One day, with some celebration going on in the coffee corner there was cream for the cake. The dog of course came along to see if he could get some food. one of the group: 'Don't give the dog any cream, they get vomiting and diearrea from it!' 'the professor has got leather seats in his car...' 'ok dog, you can have LOTS of cream'

if you make too many enemies it's very hard to figure out who did the deed...

One of our Organic Chemistry lecturers was like Carola's Professor.

We punished him by sticking a kipper in his radiator, which had the fresh air intake close. It was winter at the time and the kipper was rapidly cooked, then broke up and deteriorated quickly. It took the lecturer months to kill the smell of mouldy fish.

Once upon a time someone discovered the flat space on top the power supply heat shield of an old Data Products band printer would accommodate 3 whole sardines nicely. Right around the 17th page of month-end reports things got interesting.

Hello little squirrel! Come to my house. I have birdseed with peanuts in it just for you. There are also some tasty pine cones in our yard, should you be so inclined.

It is cute, but I am not certain it would appreciate the trip. It is within bow shot distance of the coast that you don't live on.

But when he drinks beer, does he prefer Dos Equis? (8{)

But it's considerably harder to get a witch to use a litter box.

It is clear from the behaviour of my remaining 2 Shih-Tzus (Sophie and Rosie) that they are missing Corriander as well.

Sophie is asking me to pick her up and give her a cuddle which she did not do before, and Rosis needs me around when she is eating to encourage her to eat her food.

This is a picture which is like our Shih-Tzu Corriander we had to say goodbye to on Saturday morning. She had slightly lighter ears, but was groomed short like here.



Little Sophie is a year younger than Corriander, and a blood relation. She is our nervous little one and the apricot in her colour is more orange then Corriander. Like this -



Finally little Rosie is our Panda Shih-Tzu, a little like this from the front

Witchiepoo only had a spider and a vulture(a real pair of Bird Brains).

She also had a Boy Fiend by the name of Hoodoo.

John, I am so sorry that you have lost a pet.

Friends, thank you for all the fun posts!

Is this unbearably cute, or what?!!!
