Re: Pam's cat/comical dogs


That's just hilarious!  Must have liked the high protein content.  I've noticed that all dogs seem to adore cat food as well.  That's ok, you should have seen the day I gave Pat across the street one of those Mosquito dunks to put in her pond.  Her little weenie dog CiCi will eat anything (including gourd vines and four o'clocks).  Well Pat tosses it in her pond, then lets CiCi out to tinkle.  Well she saw the Mosquito dunk floating in the water and dived in the water like a heron after a fish, grabbed that dunk and ran around the yard w/ Pat chasing her.  Needless to say, she wolfed it down.
Thank God those things are organic, it didn't make her sick.  I even emailed the Gardener's Supply people just in case anyone else's dog ever ate one and panicked.  No problem.  The Gardener's Supply folks LOVED it - they were cracking up...
One hell of a testimonial for Mosquito Dunks, huh??
