Mum was telling us about one of her friend's dogs. This friend's mum works at a vet so like most vet people they get to live with a big selection of cats and dogs and the youngest is Nellie who is a Labrador.
They were having some painting done and the man put his brush down on the lid of the tin of paint and left it there. This was a big mistake.
Nellie was delighted to find her new toy and grabbed it in her teeth and ran all round with it. Their other Labrador apparently ended up looking more like a zebra with white painty stripes and - well - there's a whole lot more painting that needs doing now.
"I bet they were really cross with her" I commented but mum said that they know she is just a puppy really and she meant no harm.
"I bet you are glad you have cats instead," I added. Mum looked around at Josie's claw marks in the table, at the leaning off mantlepiece which hasn't quite fallen down yet, at the shreds in the curtains where I've climbed them, and then back at me.
"Those add a nice homely touch I always feel," I said. Mum laughed and rubbed my head (just behind my ears which is my favourite bit to get scratched) and said that pet owners have to accept a certain amount of destruction of their property. She looked around again. "Actually a lot of destruction. But luckily for you, we think you're worth it."
Lucky for her more like. I dread to think how she would be without us cats to keep an eye on her.

Dogs are just the worst. Your home improvements are great. You don't want your place to look like a furniture show room. Much to sterile. Good job Toby and Josie.
Concats on the DDP, Toby!
