Is that why the lamp post was invented! ;D Clearly an educational facility :-?
I understand almost all dogs are experts on canine colon cancer ;D
The truth of how cats and dogs started on this extensive research is actually based on evolution. In the very early days there was, just like today, endless war between cats and dogs - so a meeting was called and all of the dogs and all of the cats arrived at the huge stone circle but they were not allowed to bring their tails in as they were the display weapons that caused the wars so they all took them off and hung them up on the buches around by the small discreat loops [provided for hanging them up] that are concealed below the tail.
Don't believe me - just lift their tails and look.
A lightening storm broke out and all the cats and dogs were so frightened [they are still frightened nowadays] as they ran out of the circle they grabbed a tail and dashed to hide in the woods.
Ever since they have been trying to sort out whose tail is which by checking the loops ;D
My oh my, somehow with all the time I spend on this board I missed this thread and read it from the beginning. It really made my day and I had a very good laugh ;D It is really odd when people ask why you were in the hospital and you tell them cancer, you never know what kind of reaction you are going to get. Fortunately, we live in the house my hubby was born in 80 1/2 years ago and we live in a town of 3,200 people where hubby and I ran two businesses and have lived all our lives so usually I get a smile and a hug. There are no words required.
