Oh dear, Beth! What an amusing but terribly sad tale! How awful not to ever be blessed with great animal friends. It sounds like you've given it a fair old go though, bless you. I just can't give up on any animal - besides I am the one in the country to whom everyone else brings their errant pets.
There was just one spelling mistake I noticed:
"......none of which possessed any of these charactristics.."
(only an 'e' missing; probably a typo).
Enjoyable read, well written as usual.
Warmest wishes
Kat

    Kat, Thank you. I had one review where the lady said she had a cat that peed only in the toaster. I can't top that one. I'm liveing in the country now and I'm having a little better luck but they are still worth writing funny stories about.

Great story. I personally really enjoyed your story because I absolutely adore animals especially dogs. I am sorry you had such terrible experiences with them. Our golden retriever is one of our greatest joys. Great story indeed

    Thank you for reading and commenting and the great review. This was written several years ago. Some of out later pets have left us with happier memories.

We live IN the country and have (and had) more animals than I care to recount. I probably couldn't anyway in the short space provided here. Luckily none of ours compare to the "interesting" bunch you've had!

This was a humorous tale and broght more than one laugh from me...and it wasn't in empathy. :)

Hullo BethShelby ....

This is really an enjoyable account of your endeavours to become ordinary pet owners. You certainly had animals with unique and original characteristics.
I really like your descriptions .... of the various Cats and Dogs.
You have provided great imagery for your readers and no doubt, many smiles as well as evoking sympathy for you and your husband in the face of such four-legged peril !!

From a writing point of view, there is one correction to be made ...
* You have - He drug me ... this should be -
he dragged me ...

Thank you for sharing this with us.
With love from ..... Nanette Mary.

A very funny read. Never thought about the arrogance of
cats in the bible's way. You folks sound like suckers :) for animals. I think there is a special place in heaven for people that do care for animals.

Being a dog owner, I enjoyed this portrait immensely! I laughed and found much to relate to as I read about your various pets. Your writing style came through with the imagery and sense of wit. Bravo!
