    A true story

    http://img164.echo.cx/img164/2237/capture926200444057pm926200444.gif

    This photograph shows a red Doberman kissing an exhausted fireman. He
    had
    just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her
    out
    of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire.
    She is pregnant. The firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he
    had never been around a Doberman before. When he finally got done
    putting
    the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest. A photographer
    from the Charlotte, North Carolina newspaper, "The Observer," noticed
    this
    red Doberman in the distance looking at the fireman. He saw her walking
    straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do. As he
    raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life
    and
    the lives of her babies, and kissed him, when the photographer snapped
    this photograph.

    LOL!! :D

    Yes that's right FC :D I pat EVERY dog I walk past. Then give a full written report to the owner. Covering things like :

    * TEXTURE
    * SOFTNESS
    * ROUGHNESS
    * LENGTH OF COAT
    * COLOUR
    * CLEANLINESS ( this is split into a number of categories )

    It's a Good Job, and SOMEBODY has to do it :D

    I want to also say that my Dad is in the Fire Brigade and similar situations have confronted him when houses a on fire. He once saved a cat from a fire. It was not breathing but he took it outside and gave it CPR :eek: It started breathing again and lived !!

    Happy owners :D :D :D

    I have to regularly cut my fingernails, they used to grow so long, people (kids) used to say I was genetically part female :eek::'(

    That was when I was in 3rd grade, have never had the courage to let my fingernails grow since then (fear of being called part-demon :eek:)

    Longest Fingernails On A Female:

    The longest female fingernails in the world belong to Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. They measure a total length of 6 m (261 in.).

    I think this would clear up any nasty name calling. :D
