    We usually get a little something for our cats at Christmas. Catnip, new toys, stick with a mousy on the end. Good times. Although the stick with the mousy at the end got mauled last night. Sigh, it never made it through day one.

    My cocker Bandit, God rest her, was always happy with just tearing apart the wrapping paper from the human’s gifts. Christmas is not going to be the same without her this year. I think that Rip is bonding with the pup.

    Veridian speaks the truth: I am available for all HUGPOUNCESZZZ in the event that he is out gallivanting and displaying holiday cheer! :-)

    TNT’s classic “You’re a daddy”-type response had me LOL! Can’t wait to see the undoubtedly hilarious shenanigans of Life with Father! :-)

    “A Talented Newcomer”? Oh my! I wish there was some way to display my blushing with embarassment face. TY to you V.
    I hope that Lil’ Pup Dog and TNT will be able to enjoy a warm family Christmas Morning together. It is the Season for family after all.

    “C4 is made up of explosives, plastic binder, plasticizer and usually marker or odorizing taggant chemicals such as 2,3-dimethyl-2,3-dinitrobutane (DMDNB) to help detect the explosive and identify its source.1

    The explosive in C4 is RDX (cyclonite or cyclotrimethylene trinitramine), which makes up around 91% of C4 by mass.1 The plasticizer is diethylhexyl (5.3%)1 or dioctyl sebacate and the binder is usually polyisobutylene (2.1%).1 Another plasticizer used is dioctyl adipate (DOA). A small amount of SAE 10 non-detergent motor oil (1.6%) is also added.1

    C4 is manufactured by combining the noted ingredients with binder dissolved in a solvent. The solvent is then evaporated and the mixture dried and filtered. The final material is an off-white solid with a texture similar to modelling clay."
    - Wikipedia—-

    As TNT is a pure explosive, the pup should be named RDX.

    Note that pure RDX has an detonation velocity of 8750 m/s, while pure TNT chugs along at 6900 m/s.
    C-4 runs just over 8000.
