You know the e-mails we all get "If you ______ you may be a Canadian or you may be an American..."

I think we need to start one about if you _____ you may own a dog/cat. So let me start and please add on - it's just for fun and I'm sure we've got a ton of them.


1. If you drive in -10 weather with the heater on full blast and your car windows open - you may own a dog.

2. If you are outside in your jammies jumping up and down like a fool because your puppy just did #2, you might have a dog.

Oh yeah - we're rolling now... That's just what I meant. Tks 14+ - now you have to add a kitty one though, you must have a hundred of them!

Yep, but I have 2 dogs too. ;)

If you are on your knees digging things out from under stoves/fridges two or three times a day, you might have cats.

If you are outside in -41 degree weather shoveling a path to the catuary (cattery), you might have cats. (a few of them)

If you always have a scratch or two on your hands or arms, you might have a cat.

If you can't find an outfit to wear because they all have cat/dog hair on them, you might have a cat/dog.

K, someone else's turn.

#7- if your best outfits are all black...you may own a black dog

#8-if you find yourself cleaning your patio door 10 times a day....you may own a dog...and a grumpy hubby *L*

...if you sample the can food to ensure it tastes good before feeding your dog (or cat).

Oh just the thought.:yuck:

If you are constantly "saving"your kitties....You might have a dog AND cat household.

If you stub your toes on bones(or a hercules)....you might be a dog owner

If you have to fight for bed space....you might have SPOILED dogs

If you have a container of chicken feet sitting next to your spaghetti... you might be a dog owner

If you see green tripe as a wholesome part of a meal...you might be the owner of a RAW fed dog....

If you plan your vacation time around the coat-blowing season (knowing that NO sane pet sitter would be willing to take that on ;)) you might have a dog. :loser:

I love this one "If you are constantly "saving"your kitties....You might have a dog AND cat household."(so true)

If you do not mind having a bath with fur, you own a cat or dog

If you casually pull cat fur from your food and continue eating you can have cats.

If you wake up half an hour earlier than you need to, you may own a cat/dog.

If you find little bits of litter on your bed, you may have a cat.

If you find holes in your blouses and know it's not moths, you may own a cat :frustrated:

If you have an entire section of your living area dedicated to cat toys, you may own several spoiled cats.:D

if your floor is covered in stuffing from the inside of toys, you may own a dog..

if you tell people your kids names are fluffly, fido, felix.. you may own a cat/dog

If you have baby gates, and no baby, you may own a dog..

If you get excited at the thought of being waken up at 4 am to go outside in -45, you may own a dog..

If you get up at night to walk to the bathroom and you step on 15 things that "squeak" at you, you may have a dog..

heehee I am trying to think of more, how fun! LOVE IT!

Dog Dancer
January 28th, 2009, 03:17 PM
These are sooo funny!! Isn't it terrible that we can all relate to so many of them though??

If you own a "fur" coat, but would never buy a fur coat - you may own a cat/dog.

Keep going, I needed a good laugh, you guys are great.:thumbs up

Spatx
January 28th, 2009, 03:29 PM
Trying to think of some more, lol. I can already relate to so many! The babygate one is still very true for us :laughing:

If you spend more money on toys, than you do on groceries, you may own a dog.

Dog Dancer

Oh yeah, the "smell". Not in our house, but my mechanic didn't want to work on the "dogmobile" because of the smell (Halo had upchucked a couple days before).

TacoGrl
January 28th, 2009, 04:47 PM
If you let your cat/dog sniff your food before YOU eat it...

If an afternoon of fun includes crawling around on all fours looking for your necklaces, pens, mittens, socks, underwear, etc...

If the "you touch it, it's yours" rule doesn't apply in your house or you would get nothing to eat!

Everything you buy comes with the question "will it hold the weight of (insert pet name)?"

If your best dress pants have fur cuffs...

.....if you don't mind the vaccum and steam cleaner always plugged in just in case (even when company comes over)..

....if someone tells you to lock up your pets when they visit and you kick THEM out.....

In the past I had a doggie that was gassy... and when he was excited.. u know wut I mean so i had to say sorry about that dog having gas when he jumped up on yer lap... heh... That;s what I meant anyway...

While walking to the coffee machine half a sleep in the morning and you step in something that squishes up between your toes...

You're going somewhere nice so you dress at the front door as you're leaving...

You have new furniture but no one notices because everything is covered with sheets, throws and old towels...

BenMax
January 28th, 2009, 05:37 PM
....if you don't mind 'slobbery' toilet seats...... (ok I'm single - I know it's the dog).:) (alright, it's kinda stretching it).

If your desk you'e supposed to work on is covered with soft blankies,you have a...cat

What a great thread! I have been laughing and laughing!

Here's some comments on my favs first:

14+kitties
If you are on your knees digging things out from under stoves/fridges two or three times a day, you might have cats.

----So true....just did this tonight! The cats were so happy!

Love4himies
If you casually pull cat fur from your food and continue eating you can have
cats.

----So true....lol doesn't even phase me anymore.

TacoGrl
If you apologize to the furry that you just stepped on because he/she was sneaking between your legs while you were at the sink, then you might have a...

----Absolutely! We apologize to them! Why? LOL

lUvMyLaB
If you have baby gates, and no baby, you may own a dog..
and
if you have noseprints all over your window

----Oh yes!

And now a few of mine:

If you refuse to walk into a dark room barefooted anymore....risking stepping on anything squishy...you might have a cat (or 7) :)

If you go to Walmart and the buggie is loaded with paper towels, dog treats, litter, litter, and litter, etc....you might have pets.

If you wake up in the morning and cannot move in your bed, you might have multiple cats/dogs competing for the space.

If you cannot ever go to the bathroom alone....you might have cats...

If you can't walk through the room without stumbling on a toy or bone or ball ...you might have dogs.

That's all I can think of right now.

Keep 'em coming...I love this

If you don't eat fast food OR ice cream but swing through McDonald's to pick up nuggets and an ice cream because someone was a good boy at the groomers...you might have a dog

Dog Dancer
January 28th, 2009, 10:27 PM
Oh - nuggets - that's what made Halo puke in the dogmobile! I too have had many laughs through this thread - keep going if you can think of more, but thanks to all for playing along. I've remembered so many things reading this, the kitties have been gone for years now, but I remember the squishy things between my toes:yuck:
I don't think I could pick a favourite or two out of these, they're all fabulous.

If you wake up at 4am every morning to make breakfast that's not for you, then go back to sleep until you actually need to get up even on your days off....... you may have a raw fed cat :D

If you love sharing your bed with someone with a hairy back, bad breath, snores, has gas, and constantly stretches and tries to push you out of the bed, and you love every minute of it, you may have a DOG!

Love these!! The going to WM and your buggy being filled with litter, litter and more........ oh yeah! :o Thanks dmc123. And nice to "see" you btw. :thumbs up

If just about every minute of your day revolves around leashes, litter and licks you might have a cat, or dog.

If you bought a water filtering pitcher, yet your drink tap water, you may own a cat.

If You or your guests cannot enter your home with a Timmies (Tim Hortans) without also having Timbits for your Dog.. You are owned by a dog.

If trying to get your dog to come inside by crinkling up the Tim Hortans bag then you are owned a dog.:D

I love these! here are mine (though several people posted ones that could have applied to me.)

If all your furniture has scratch marks, you have a cat.
If your furniture all has tooth marks, you have a puppy.
If you are constantly hunting for the second half of your pair of socks, you have either a kitten or a puppy.

If you speand 1 hour in freezzing cold wheather, plowing the back yard with your quad, you may have a small dog that wants to play outside!

If your Really tired, but still manages to get off your butt and go outside to play, you may have a dog.

If you speand more money on your pets then you do yourself, you may have a very spoiled cat/dog.


If your dog has its own stool by the kitchen counter, so he/she can get up on and see what you are doing while cooking supper, you may have a very spoiled and needy dog. lol

If you bake for you dog and not yourself, you definatly have a spoiled dog!

If you sit down on the cold kitchen floor everymorning before school/work and feed your dog/cat with a spoon, you definatly have a spolied dog/cat..

Oh boy, the things we do!
