Dr. Doolittle

(I’m running this post again because my friend Gooby reminded me of the e-mail Christmas card he sent last year. It illustrates my point perfectly.) I love animals as much as the next person, but what drives me crazy is the people who insist on treating their animals like they’re children. Especially you couples without children who take your pet to the photo studio and get a family portrait taken as if the pet is your child. We all tell you this Christmas card is adorable, but what we’re really thinking is, “Wow! That is pathetic. That poor dog. How does he put up with these morons?” If you ever put your pet in clothing someone should call the police. And why do people talk to their pets as if they’re small children? “Oh! There’s my little smoochy poochy! Who wants a cookie? Who wants it?” First of all, your pet can’t understand you, and second of all, if they can understand you, they think you’re a moron!

  6. Hey Phil, your stalker friend came to visit me again. He said Phil is too funny. So anyhoo stalker person, if you are reading this, and I know you are, please refrain from lusting after Phil at Home Fires. You may babble on and on about your love for me, however. Lois Lane

  7. If it hadn’t have been for the fact that his dogs are ridiculously white and fluffy, it’d be OK!
