One of these days...

...that dog of mine is going to get her nose laid open. 

She has a new prank she likes to play on the cat.  I don't know how, but she's figured out how to walk silently across the linoleum floor in the kitchen.  And she likes to sneak up on Shadow, our black cat. 

The dog has quit knocking the cat's face into the water bowl when she gets a drink, for the most part.  No, now she sneaks up on the cat when she's standing in the middle of the kitchen with her tail in the air, indecisive about what to do next, and pokes a cold, wet dog nose right up against the exposed asshole.  Cat flings herself straight up into the air, and  vanishes.

One of these days, though, she's gonna turn around and beat the hell out of the dog.

  1. Dead dog walking. Our lab tried that once with the older Siamese. Still acts a little skittish around the cats.

    1. Odysseus grew up with a six pound long haired calico cat that the hundred pound black labs they had lived in terror of. Shadow is, perhaps, too subtle in her threats--the worst she's done is use the litterbox while staring at the dog (really stinky number two, while the dog is in her crate), or leave a gutted mouse in the dog's bedding.

  2. Got me to thinking that I've seen this sort of thing before.... took me forever just to find a clip of "Claude the Cat" and "Frisky Puppy."

    1. No barking, just a cold, wet nose stuck right up against the cat's asshole.

    1. I'm honestly looking forward to that. The dog is far too smart for her own good, and maybe having to suffer while she heals will teach her to leave the cat that doesn't like her alone.

  4. I like this dog. I'd probably have a video camera trained on it all the time.

  5. Okay, I laughed. I know it's wrong but I laughed.

    I wonder who will learn first - the cat, not to stand with her butthole exposed, or the dog, by getting his nose mauled?

    1. Both critters are notoriously stubborn, so I don't know.
