The Love That Dare Not Bark Its Name

Aww.

When I was in my teens, we had a 100-lb. collie/shepherd mix and two small cats: Smokey, who was coal-black, and Bandit, a black-and-white product of Smokey's liaison with the white Persian across the street. The three of them slept on the sun porch on cold nights, and after Samson the dog lay down on his side, the two cats would climb onto his flank, curl up and go to sleep, purring loudly enough to rattle the storm windows. It wasn't exactly the lion lying down with the lamb, but it was pretty darned close; the dog happily would have eaten any other cat it could catch.

Smokey and the Bandit -- that's great. Did you have a CB radio, too? (We did.)

I should clarify that these are not my pets. I found the video on Youtube will searching for "Malinois" (yes, I do that a lot).

After watching it a couple of times, I'm convinced that the cat is really just trying to get the Mal to move so it can have the warm spot on the couch.

The Mal clearly loves the cat, but cats don't love -- underneath every cat's cute furry exterior lies the cold heart of an iguana.

That's illegal in North Carolina.

Heheh, this is great. Someone send me an email that my cat and dog where on your blog. Your comment made me laugh:

LOL

Fascinating that people actually search You Tube for dogs instead of for music videos.

Everybody and his dog (so to speak) has music videos on his blog.

Inter-species love -- now that's something worth posting.
