baskerville: Black dog head facing left on a background of fiery red (Hellhound red)

I sent my father some advice on introducing a dog to new cats with no bloodshed. This is actually quite straightforward to accomplish, and you can get the general gist from my abstract:

The cat's unshakeable belief in its own inherent superiority, and ability to convince the dog of the same in the face of overwhelming evidence, is one of the reasons it is such a successful parasitic lifeform. The cat seeks to displace the dog's benign mutualism for its own ends without the host's knowledge.

I recommend Hillaire Belloc's exhaustive treatment, a classic for anyone interested in the subject. Meanwhile, in the realm of speculative fiction, many of the terrifying parasitic alien lifeforms in Neal Asher's novels are rather reminiscent of the cat or its passenger-cum-co-conspirator, Toxoplasma gondii.

A wolfhound with hairy great pawsies
Was glad without obvious causies.
The grin on his snoutie
Occasioned some doubtie
In view of the size of his jawsies.

Yes, heelwork to music: that bit you see on Crufts every year when a person comes into the arena with an excited dog and does a little dance with him or her.

I'm a sucker for seeing dogs so obviously enjoying being so silly. In fact you could say I got chills… they're multiplyin'…

Love how Carolyn uses her arm signals. Also, Golden Retrievers are made of 36 carat win. My sisters were Goldies.

And now — fight to the death!!21"!31
