    Hello all you Cathy nuts. I’am not usually up this late and was suprised to see no comments. Take care and be safe today.

    I don’t have a dog, but wouldn’t training solve this? Yes, dogs love to smell everything, but do you really need to stop every couple of steps?

    Good morning, washingtoneagle and the rest of the nutty Cathy family!

    This is a timely strip for me. I took my “Electra-sized” grand-dog for his walk this morning. He likes for me to go out with him whenever she visits. He lets me know by jumping onto my pillow and pawing at my hair. I am an indulgent grandma and let him sniff at lots of wet leaves. But when we came across a dead squirrel, that is where I drew the line and made him walk on! Happy Friday to the Cathy Clan!

    I have yet to figure out how to convince my dog that walks involve movement. He has to smell every single clump of grass.

    We have a pretty big back yard that my dog likes to run around and play in so we don’t really have to go for walks. Because it’s unfenced, we have quite a bit of “wildlife” that likes to come through here that she can smell — not just dogs and cats but also rabbits, squirrels, possums and raccoons — so when we go outside for potty time, she just HAS to sniff what seems like every single blade of grass out there to “see” who’s been visiting her “turf” lately. Normally we tolerate this behavior without a problem because she’s a dog and that’s just what they do but at this time of year when it’s so cold outside it really gets on our last nerve when she does it. We’re standing out there, dying for her to get her business done so we can get back inside where it’s warm but because she has a perpetual fur coat on, she doesn’t seem to notice just how cold it really is out there. (In case you’re wondering, we simply can’t let our dog go outside by herself because she only weighs 9 lbs., we live out in the county with, as I mentioned, an unfenced back yard and there are not only hawks around but there are also coyote sightings every now and then. She’d be quite the tasty morsel for predators like that if they got the chance so we’re always out there with her just to make sure she stays safe.)


    Hi, rgcviper!


    Hello and Happy Friday to all my nutty “Cathy” friends. It’s the weekend at last!

    Hi Cathyites!! I once had a cat that would go for a short walk on a leash. She was the same — wanted to check out all the bushes in everybody’s yard. She also didn’t last very long before she was just toooooo tired to walk another step, so I always ended up carrying her most of the walk. We just have to realize that animals don’t walk for the sake of walking — they are checking out all the “graffiti.”

    Wait—now Cathy WANTS to exercise? This may be a first.

    Of course, that’s probably just the cold and the snow talking to her. Walking beats standing around freezing.

    Sure wish we had some other way of tracking down Aaron and Billy. I really miss them.

    HI, MOM. Happy Friday, Clan.
