dogs

The Internet needs more dogs…

I’ve never gone for the LOL cats thing. Cats aren’t funny. Cats are horrible soulless things with fur.

But dogs. Dogs doing funny stuff is something I can go for…

Exhibits A and B… there you go…

YouTube Tuesday: Teenage Mutant Cyborg Turtle

Ninja Turtles have all the fun.

I’ve been tracking the story of Simone and her frisky dog. If you haven’t been – then you should. She took him to the vet the other day. The same day we sent our little Rosie to the vet for the first time. I’d never sent an animal to the vet before, but I think it was the most expensive five minutes of my life – and I wasn’t there. We sent her with my in-laws.

The vet told them that we’d already cured said turtle of her fungal infection by the power of betadine. Hooray for us. And then he charged us $50.

This little turtle had significantly greater problems… he lost his legs, so they replaced them with little plastic bits that slide along the floor.

Stimulus rains on cats and dogs

Apparently “literally hundreds” of cats and dogs will be receiving stimulus money inherited from pensioners who’ve died since filing their last returns. If these pensioners bequeathed their estates to their feline or canine companions and a tax return was filed the animals get the one off payment.

Joe Hockey is jumping up and down crying fowl (because chickens don’t often get these sorts of rights)… he thinks it’s a waste of money.

But really, the stimulus is only effective if the recipients spend the money. I don’t know if cats and dogs are renowned savers, and I would have thought pet stores needed the stimulus money as much as everyone else. If they go out of business where are desparate pensioners going to get their food from?

Frankly I think the money that went to pensioners overseas was more concerning – but I don’t really see how complaining that the Government is pumping money into the economy (via our pockets) is going to score any political points at all.
