    Now what do I do?! I just had a huge mug of tea!
    At least he's not dreaming and growling in to my lap, that's never good....

    Seriously, brothers from another mother.
    Do you also get the paws grabbing you when you try to get up? :rolleyes:

    Oh yes, he has a death grip when he doesn't want me to move :Shifty
    He also subtly pushes the OH away with his back paws...I'm less likely to move if I am sat on my own :Hilarious

    I know that feeling - if it's not Holly then it's one of the cats. Though at least with the cats you can get your hands underneath (like a spatula) and slide them off to somewhere else comfortable. Not so easy with a large dog!

    Awwwww :)

    My Mr Clingy Pants was extra super clingy on Saturday. I was bursting for a wee and although he is only 9.5kg his whole body was laid on me, like a dead weight. I honestly nearly wee’d myself and he still wouldn’t move!

    No LOL
    But if you look very carefully at his nose, you can still see the scar from his last encounter with a skunk about 3 years ago :Penguin

    We don't have skunks in the UK but have heard they can emit a truly terrible smell. I wonder how bad it is on a scale of 1-10, 1 being low?

    No, seriously, it is horrible, potent, gawdawful stuff.

    Just driving by a roadkill skunk is bad enough, a direct hit is hell on earth.
    Bates' has had far too many adventures with skunks and it is truly horrific.

    Wow, has it really been 3 years since Bates last Skunking?
    3 years clean is pretty good :p

    It's skunk breeding season right now, so he's not outside unsupervised during crepuscular times.
    I had a heart attack moment two days ago, smelled a skunk nearby and saw Bates get interested in something but I called him back and he came - phew! Fortunately he is a good boy about not chasing if I'm there to tell him no....

    I've read loads of articles listing potential difficulties involved in having a dog to help potential dog owners think through all the issues beforehand, but I've never once read: "owning a dog could seriously damage your bladder". But the risk is real.

    The risk of bladder damage is also very real when you are woken first thing in the morning (when you have a full bladder) by a hefty ginger cat using you as a trampoline and crash-mat!
