    We need to know more about the dog's position on DHS and TSA. It appears she is willing to chase an illusion (of safety?). Not promising. ;)

    OTOH, the child gets the dog to work (enthusiastically!) for nothing. Given the US gov't's budget position, I can see that being a vital skill. :(

    Please also confirm that (a) the dog was born in the US to American citizens, and (b) the child has never hired illegal immigrants. Just heading off the usual criticisms...

    Does Bennie The Cat need a girlfriend? Does he have a thing for tabbys? I could FedEx you one of my outside kittehs. :eek::D

    The dog was born on a hog farm in Central Florida to two pedigreed all-American Golden Retriever parents, but raised by swine. She's bilingual. That's right. She speaks pig. This skill could come in handy when reasoning with Congress. What the dog lacks in brains she makes up for in enthusiasm. Beyond a few embarrassing incidents involving killing squirrels and scaring raccoons catatonic, she's got a clean record.

    The child is a wise old soul with a streak of Machiavelli and an innate toughness that few adults possess. If you don't pay someone - then technically they haven't been "hired!";)

    Alas, we can't take on any more kitties. Four is quite enough (and at one point we had five)! Bennie has two "brothers" and one "sister." None of them, of course, have their gonads anymore, though there are still atavistic tendencies.

    You are talking about cats not smurfs, right?

    :( Oh dear, my support for Bennie is wavering; it's long past time for the US to have a president with, um, gonads.

    OTOH, Elizabeth's dog - while speaking pig which I agree would be an important skill in DC - has not yet taken a firm stance on respecting the Constitution and abolishing TSA.

    It's so hard to choose. :p

    I believe Bennie has been "fixed" just as Bill should have been "fixed".

    If you could convince Punkin (dog's moniker) that the TSA was the moral equivalent of a raccoon or as tasty and entertaining as squirrel, your problems would be over. The Constitution is somewhat problematic however. If you don't like your crotch sniffed (4th amendment) you have to say no firmly. If your underwear hits the floor then she assumes you intend to share all available information recorded therein. If you prefer not to have your socks despoiled (property/due process) then you must place them in a hamper.
