Wow Rugby and Uncle Bob, your site is brilliant!
thanks primate lady. i put a lot of work into it adn i appreciate your nice letter
If Roger and Dexter could type, I'm sure they would also express their wonder and delight.
are roger and dexter rats? it is a moot point i guess because roger and dexter are boy names and as i have said, my shotgun is loaded for beaver only if you follow my meening. although maybe they are gilrs with boy names because THEY ARE LESBIAN RATS??! wow that would be htot to watch plz ask them for me
Having no opposable thumbs and ADHD (in Dexter's case), as well as being hopelessly unconscious (in Roger's case), they have asked me to convey our sincerest thanks for making our day! Please keep posting!
We appreciate the reader feedback, Bridget! I grew up with numerous cats (two at a time, in succession), some of whom were as boneless as Roger appears to be. During my seven years in New York, I also had a much-beloved dog, Poochy:
are you triying to give me a coronary?!?
Oh, calm down -- you know it's just a picture. Anyway, I had to leave Poochy with my ex when I moved down to Virginia, and I miss him (Poochy, not so much the ex) a lot. The email continues:
Roger dreams of becoming a super hero someday. . .
Roger is a 'stumpy' Manx. No tail, just stump. This is all Roger does. He is useless and surly and thinks with a French accent.
madame, c'est un chat très pretty!!! je pense that he would look plus pretty sous le boulledozeur
Dexter is a smart dog. Dexter likes the snow. Dexter is not useless. He likes to be very useful, in fact. He appointed himself neighborhood squirrel crusader, much to his primates' horror. The squirrel apocalypse is upon us. Run, squirrel, run!
at least he is much smaller than the poochy monster
Rugby, you don't really get perspective at all, do you?
what? yes i know perspective its how primates keep cool by sqirting Water out of ther skin.
No, that's "perspicacity."
thats what i said!
Oh, my bad.
Dexter earned two 'confirmed kill' patches last year because he is faster than (at least two) squirrels.
Interesting... I never knew dogs could earn merit badges.
Squirrels are rodents, too. (Sorry, Rugby). Dexter's dad thought it was funny and got in a lot of trouble for encouraging this behavior.
well who the hell cares about squirals? i am imprerssed that somone as puny as dexter can take down a squirrel thouhg. anyway as long as he doesnt bother CIVILIZED rodents that is ok by me
