Cat or Dog?

This morning, great joy, I worked from home. This allowed me the pleasure of walking to the local shop to buy a paper with my lovely wife. On the way we saw a man, with a black cat following him. As we passed, it sort of paused and gave us a look. We tittered, "it looks like that man is taking it for a walk - arf arf". Then we heard the man say "come on Boris"! So he was. So was that a man who wanted a dog, could only get a cat, but had trained it like a dog? Or was the look the cat gave us saying "he might think he's taking me for a walk, but I just decided to humour him again"?

If only it could talk......................

There was a cat like that in our neighbourhood in TO...the woman had two dogs and a cat, the two dogs were walked on a leash and the cat tagged along. Weird, but true! Did it think it was a dog?????

Great slideshow by the way. I wonder who that baby was??? Not Sara, the other one I seem to have been holding.

Hmmm, now I'm thinking I don't mind Cats so much. How sweet that it followed like a dog, or maybe the man smlled of fish??? Probably not!

I'm thinking given the age of Sarah that the baby ought to be Kate.
On the cat front I had a colleague who had a spaniel and a burmese cat. When she walked the spaniel the cat used to come to but get ahead and then jump out on the spaniel causing it to bark like a loon!

The baby is Sarah because Kate is the bun in the oven. I'm not that fat now, let alone then!!

Well, I did think you looked pregnant still but if you go through the pictures there is one where Sarah is being held by Phyll and Christine appears to be holding another baby. I have labelled it as Joanne holding another baby.

I see what you mean, I don't know who or what that is, but Kate is definitely the bun in the oven and I think all the pictures were taken on the same day - when we had the big croquet game.
