Thank you. Though my catbeard wasn't cooperating so it just turned out to be a picture of me and my kitty. :P I think I placed 3rd by default. :XD: Thank you all the same though. :)

I got a few; but they weren't any good. Mostly outta focus of her running away. :giggle:
I'm not completely sure :O when I got her they said she was chihuahua and German shepherd - I can definitely see the German Shepherd side of her... but I don't really see Chihuahua, which I'm completely fine with :lol:

Well that's a bummer.

Wow that's quite a weird mix. I never liked Chihuahuas. They're goofy looking always shaking and scratching and they look like they're on crack or something. Plus small breed dogs are annoying and yappy. If I'm going to have something that small and useless, I'll just have a cat. They're quieter, relatively low maintenance, and cleaner to. If I have a dog I want at least a medium breed dog. My aunt had a dog that was like a great dane mix, he was huge. I loved him cause he was such a sweet gentle dog, despite being like 200 pounds. :lol: His name was Niko.

I was afraid to do that with my cat. I didn't want to be rough with her just for a picture. She's old. I mighta had an actual catbeard photo if I had got her to look up. :p

Oh man, you can't do that with actual cats. I have two rambunctious puppies that I rough-house with anyway, so my ordeal wasn't so weird for them. They were a little scared of me getting that close their backs and the shutter noise, but eventually the calm one figured out I just wanted to snuggle with him and the "clicky thing." XD I would not recommend what I did with a cat, much less an old one. 

(beautiful kitteh btw <3)

Eh you can play rough with younger cats. I played around with Kelly when she was younger. But not like you can with dogs, especially the bigger breeds. I didn't do it mostly cause she's old. I get a little forceful when brushing her otherwise it gets all clumped and matted. But I wasn't going to do that just for a silly picture. That just seemed mean to me.

I haven't had a dog in years. I miss having one to. Oh well maybe in a few years. I think my cat is too old to be making her deal with newcomers. Otherwise I think I woulda snagged up the male black cat that my friend feeds, had him fixed and named him Lucky. :P

Thank you. :D OMG you called your entry "Doggy style" HAHAHA That's hilarious.

Yeah, I had a few cats I could get rough with, but getting rough with them is nothing like getting rough with the dogs. XD And you should only get rough if your pets seem to like it. My dogs beat the crap out of each other regularly, so I figured a little wrestling wouldn't be a problem.

And yeah, old cats can be some of the most obstinate animals. Good for you for thinking of the pet you have first. Young cats tend to try to play fight with older ones, so you made the right move. 

I'm glad you liked my title. I am awful. :D

Yeah totally. Animals have personalities just like people. What some like other's despise. I've had cats that practically beg to be picked up, others that freak out if I picked them up. The last dog I had wasn't much of a rough houser though. He was a super docile dog. Well behaved to. He was a golden retriever(a mut though with some in him I think, but not sure) and was just a super gentle dog. Never bit or growled. Only barked out of excitement, or when trains went by(the horns hurt his ears like they do with all dogs). He got old and we had to put him down. He was a really good dog. Best I've ever had. Its been gees probably 12 or so years now since he was gone.

She's a moody little bitch to though, always has been. Its not just that she's old, though that probably doesn't help, that's just the way she's always been. My grandmother also says no more cats after her but I think we'll just have to agree to disagree. :lol:

More like awesome. :highfive: remake I like a girl with a sense of humor. They laugh at my stupid jokes. :XD:

Yup. Everybody's unique. I've had the gentle dogs who would let me ride on their back, the high strung dogs so happy to see me they didn't realize that knocking me over hurts, the playful dogs who don't care if I get hurt as long as we're fighting, and the sweet dogs who roll over when they see me. Actually, the dog I took this with was the last one there. :)

My family insisted no more pets after my last one died in high school.. and then THEY went and got a couple dogs. Nice.

And aww, shucks.
