She miraculously survived, and obviously wasn't too traumatized considering she then sprawled across my text book purring.

    It wasn't the first time she's been scribbled on, taped, or stickered. It won't be the last.

    SEE!?!?! This proves it, children that scribble on dogs are SCAREY and turn into CAT MOLESTERS! That cat wasn't purring it was obviously SHRIEKING FOR HELP.

    Instead, cats should be treated like children:

    Good Lord... apparently the daily goings on in the Minon household should have all my animals yanked and sent away to much happier homes. Either that or DD will clearly turn into the female version of Ted Bundy.

    Your son BULLDOZED your cat and you don't see what's wrong with that??? I'm calling PETA!


    As an aside, anyone else enjoy that PETA and PITA are pronounced the same way?

    My little brother and I bingo dabbed our border collie as kids (she was red and white) We made her red and green. She lived another 12 years after, I don't think it had any lasting effects!
    We had a Christmas dog until spring when she shed out!

    I'm embarrassed to admit that Brenda Breyer sometimes rode my childhood cat. Cat was unimpressed but lived to be 17, so he survived my elementary-school Breyer obsession without long-term damage.

    Old ladies dye their poodles to match their own pink or blue hair. Horses with sparkle crap on their feet or being painted to look like zebras for Halloween dress up...oh the humanity!

    What I find ghastly is babies with pierced ears/earrings or studs through their noses...now that's abuse for no reason.

    I remember cutting my younger cousins hair...now that was fun and interesting....also, a real learning situation for my spanked butt. I deserved it, it was fun...his hair grew out.

    My mom loves to tell this story.

    When I was about 4 I was playing with our Irish Setter in the other room and came in crying and saying that Paddy bitten me. My mother, knowing the dog and knowing me asked "What were you doing?"

    My response was "All I was doing was putting my fingers down her throat!".

    My 13 year old JRT is having a very hard time escaping my 1 year old son. She does what she can to endure his "petting" (read: slapping) and when she's done she leaves. Only now he follows her. Poor dog who isn't allowed on the furniture has taken to jumping up on the couch and hiding at the back. I can't get mad at her. There is a reason her bed, food, water and sanctuary are placed behind a baby gate.

    Not all animals are made to put up with children, but the ones who are have high seats in heaven, for sure.

    If it really was sharpie it won't wash out. It will go away when the hair eventually sheds out but sharpie is permanent. If it was magic marker that will wash.

    I hope when you see your kid bothering the old dog, you remove kid or dog. As the owner, you owe it to both to keep them safe. And kids CAN learn to pat gently.

    *This may have come out more harsh than intended, but I hate to think a good natured old dog, that is most likely getting stiffer with age is being slapped and forced to put up with a kid being rough. Too often you hear about a dog biting a kid, and the parent says "She's never done that before!" and then they want to get rid of, or euth the dog.

    Of course I do. And we work on patting gently. They are never together unattended. He's getting it. She's quite fond of his ball throwing abilities.

    No offense taken to the tone, I understand.

    I'm glad. And thanks for taking it in the spirit in which I wrote it, and not getting offended.
