I'm in?!!

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

I resolved that problem. I decided I'd have both. 8)

But we did sacrifice the foodstuffs. If Dawg had meant for me to grow veggies, he wouldn't have invented Sobeys. :lol:

I was reluctant to get another dog; especially a pup.... But I wouldn't trade him now. His teething would have cost just about as much as Marc's outlay on his "Pickle" ( you still haven't told us the name you or family gave her ) , if I had paid contractors to do deck vinyl repairs and replaced all the other things he chewed with new . Yup.. pets (and wives and kids) are expensive.. We can live without them ; but do we really want to? Yeah , ok ...Some of them we can do without.. Exes are more expensive than pets though .

I did. You didn't pay attention!

The guy named it, "Mooshie", and they decided to keep that name.

Now, Dave, go to google.ca and type in "Mooshie". You should get the meaning of the name as the very first hit and it should be on urbandictionary.com

I don't think they bothered looking this up...

As a speaker of German, having lived there for a year in my teens and spoken it with family all my life, I can confirm that in Germany, 'Mooshie' is a nickname for kittens - however, I think the other definition in the urban dictionary is more apropos of the first owner's use of the poor mutt - a puppy factory, leading to her recent health crisis he downloaded on your family, Marc!

You could be right Heidi.

That can be changed if the family wants to.

My hubby wanted to know why I burst out laughing while googling 'mooshie' lol. So I read it to him, and my son (10) heard me, and now wants to know why is mommy and daddy laughing at a dog named cat, as I had to quickly do damage control and translate what pussy means. Ah man, tears.
