My wife took our daughter to the euthanasias of each of our four pets that died as she was growing up (daughter is now 24, and I include the one that died when she was 22). I was working for most of these. One was particularly grim. The vet explained what he was doing, and as the pet was dying, our daughter said, "Can you take the medicine out, please?"

Would anyone here invite a hairy naked man into your house?

This hairy naked man doesn't wipe his ass, rarely bathes, freely sits on your couch, and he always wants to eat everything he possibly can.


Ponder, please.

I usually have on at least some gym shorts around the house.

The wife has explained she doesn't want a dog because for her the pain of losing her pets LONG ago is still too prominent in her mind.  She had a pair of German Shepherds that were loose in their backyard.  She has told me they looked after her kids, especially the little one, if he wondered off a bit one went with him.

They had a bit of property and no fence, not even around the pool (in France).  I've seen some photos of them around the pool having fun.

I'd love to have a dog myself, I really like dogs, but we travel too much and I think it's unfair to have a larger dog, which I'd like, 50 pounds or so, cooped up most of the day.  I see folks in the park with their dog off leash, which technically is illegal but they do it when the park is lightly visited during the week.  There also are two larger dog parks in the park which is fun to watch for me.

I have pondered if the wife predeceases me if I'd get a dog.  She says she would hate to be last to go.  Not a fun topic.  Losing a dog is bad, losing a wife or kid is just way way way worse.  I'm coming up on that anniversary, August 3.  My FB feed is "reminding" me.

Attributed quotes by Mark Twain on dogs:

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.

Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.

The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's.

Tell them about the fundamental existential pointlessness of life and how not a damn thing matters and we're all just going to end up the same way we started: random unconnected atoms.
