How I Met Your Father

"Lordy me, that picture takes me back.  It was at the Rotary Club picnic, and there was this boy -- and I swear he must have followed us the whole afternoon, working up his nerve.  Finally he comes up to me -- and of course he was much thinner then, dont'cha know, and he still had all his fur -- and he just stands there, staring.

"Well, after a few minutes of this, I give up and turn to get some more tuna casserole, and he just up and bites me on the tail!  Right in front of everybody!  And well, of course I'm just madder than I-don't-know-what-all, and I'm about to haul off and slug him, when I get a look into his eyes.  And it was like they were pleading with me: Don't go.


"And I figured, if a feller wants a girl bad enough to bite her on the tail, he must want her awful bad.  That was forty-seven years ago, and we been together ever since.  Missed the fireworks and everything.

"Well, not entirely."


Thanks for the memories, Dia H.

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 02:36 AM

I don't know what I love more - the pictures, or Mike's sweet little story. *collapses and weeps*

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 03:32 AM

Cute romance! Cronshe.

TEWTALLY unrelated, but check back in on the Fewettcam, guys! Fingerpuppet is growing a tailio Iglesias and has learned to squirm upside down now, hind leggies and tailio flailing. And I THINK he's opened his eyes! (why am I sure he's a he? Probably the way he behaves, always trying to explore and having Mummy softcronshe him back to safety...)

This illustrated story is the funniest thing I've ever seen/read. And the cutest. Love it!

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 03:58 AM

My grandparents met when my grandpa dropped a paper bag full of water off a roof onto my grandma's head. Absolutely true.

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 04:13 AM

I just love a happy ending.

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 04:19 AM

Adorabuhls!!!!! Great story telling!

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 05:01 AM

I took care of a litter of bigs pups who used a marmie kitteh as a play toy. The cat would yowl from under a pile of pups, struggle and run away...but not too far. I stopped resucueing him when I realized he liked it. His fur was spikey from puppy slobber for weeks!

I'm in the mood for love,
Simply because you're furry,
Please - don't be in a hurry,
I'm in the mood for love.
Try as you might to run,
You know I'm going to get you,
Honey, I can't forget you,
I'm in the mood for love.
Why stop to think if whether,
This little dream shall fade,
We'll put our hearts together,
Now we are one; I'm not afraid.
I saw you standing there,
Mewing, and oh, so fetching.
Come here, and stop your kvetching -
I'm in the mood for love!

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 05:46 AM

N'awwwwww, shweet.

 |  Jun 27, 2008 at 05:51 AM

This is SOOO cute!! Love that the kitty's ears are turned backward in the first pic, so you know the pup is really tugging at her tail - not just love nips. Ultimate proof that dogs and cats can live together.

My furry purry friend
our love will never end
you make me smile with my heart,
Your looks are laughable
but your my favourite work of art,
Though your figures no longer sleek
when your whiskers brush my cheek
it's the best day of the week
you touch my heart,
Don't change a hair for me
I know you care for me,
Purr fury valentine purr.
