  1. A message from my corgis:

    Don’t trust a cat,
    nor thrust of man;
    against your plan,
    first he shall woo,
    then mooch from you,
    Yes, it is




    • Well, your corgis are exceptionally talented poets. ;) But it must be very tough for them, being such talented wordsmiths without opposable thumbs.

      • No, but every other fiber of them is opposable though! And they believe that squirrels and cats are trying to take over the world…


      • And they’re absolutely right, at least as far as cats are concerned. Not sure about the squirrels, but I wouldn’t put it past them. :P


      • :D
