Well, I tried. Hoping you might have a beer as a consolation prize for me when you see me anchored there.

Ummmm....is it too late to return the cat?

I'm sorry but after 15 years of owning Weimaraner's without kids and a several year reprieve, I got the bright idea that Santa should deliver my young kids a pair of MC's. My thinking was, MC's are most like dogs but can be left alone for a couple days while I go sailing, right?

These now 2.5 yr. old MC's have proven to be absolutely fantastic with infants and small kids. In fairness, they damage nothing unless one of them has a spontaneous neurotic episode and does a Fred Flintstone escape. I suppose they are great 'cat's but stupid by comparison to the Weimeraners. Can a cat truly be your friend? These two nocturnal demons run laps around the house at night, ambush each other and sound like small elephants in a china cabinet. If I have to listen to them bitch me out in the morning for the next 20 years - every morning - to be fed at 06:00 religiously - or retaliate by waking up my young kids to start my day regardless if I chose to ignore them - I'll go nuts. Not even an auto feeder helps....oh sure, they'll eat but then wake me up anyway.

Names? How about, 'Damnit'?
