Life is about ascertaining the best “plausible deniability” available. Plausible Deniability allows you to do or get what you want, with limited repercussions. My menagerie of animals taught me this lesson very well indeed. Whoever you interrogate, will always point the paw at the next in line. Each appears to have perfectly good Pawsible Deniability for the bird flying around the house, missing food items or occasional “accident”. As the zoo empowered me with this valuable tool, I shall from here on out, rely on Pawsible Deniability for all blunders. My finger shall now point at the paws of:
Litchi – First in but ruler of the Couch and her Bed only!
Jittery Jangles – Second in and jittery about everything. Ruler of Nothing!
Sabre – Third in and Ruler Of All (except the couch and Litchi’s bed)
Shadow – Last in (so far) with enough womanly wiles to allow Sabre to think he’s the Ruler when she’s the Boss!
Each one of these sweethearts (or monsters – depending on the day or crime committed) is a testament to how wonderful and endearing rescue animals can be. They feature regularly on these posts, in the hope that anyone thinking of extending their family considers going the Adoption route. Of course, if you intend “showing” or “working” a pedigree animal, then a reputable breeder is clearly the best option. However, if you are simply looking for a companion, the No-Kill Shelters are over-flowing and each one adopted, allows another “animal in need” the vital assistance these organisations can provide.
At this point, I would like to Highly Un-recommend allowing awards to pile up, imposing upon yourself an outrageously daunting task. I hereby confirm that this action will leave you brain-dead, causing you to press “Publish” before checking links. In light of my new found “Pawsible Deniability”, I take absolutely no responsibility for the fact that I provided a completely incorrect address for Jodi Stone’s site, which was supposed to be Heart Like a Dog and is definitely worth popping over to visit.
My finger now points directly at Litchi, Jangles, Sabre and Shadow, one of whom must, clearly, be responsible for this error in judgement. I am trusting that, having a Heart Like a Dog, she will forgive whichever critter was the cause of this
fowl foul up.
