Dog Virus

pawrul1a.gif (939 bytes)

This virus is no joke. It is progressive and dangerous.
It will begin with one cute puppy... usually for companionship. You will not realize that you have been infected even when you begin trying to convince your family that foraging for food is more rewarding than buying groceries. You may not recognize the symptoms even when 90% of your mail consists of pet catalogs & show entries">

Dog Virus

This virus is no joke. It is progressive and dangerous.
It will begin with one cute puppy... usually for companionship. You will not realize that you have been infected even when you begin trying to convince your family that foraging for food is more rewarding than buying groceries. You may not recognize the symptoms even when 90% of your mail consists of pet catalogs & show entries, and "sick days" have all been used to visit every dog show within 600 miles.

By the time the virus has taken firm hold, you will have reduced your yard to a safe area that can be enjoyed by your dogs. You will be trying to sell the kids swing set to make more room for the dogs.

Your computer will threaten to crash because of the huge amounts of dog web sites, nutrition sites, programs, breed lists, rescue lists, advice lists, dog images, and canine health html bookmarks that have filled all available space. You will "borrow" from your child's college fund to buy more memory.

This virus will take over every room of your house in the form of flyers, catalogs, premium lists, dog toys, dog beds, crates, dog food, and dog treats.

You will begin to avoid anyone who doesn't have a dog and try to convert anyone who doesn't know how wonderful your breed is.

Your family will not recognize you unless you're covered with dog hair.

You will seriously consider a second mortgage to take advantage of dog show entries or, even worse, dog toy sales.

Depression will set in immediately after the last dog show of the season.

Your own dog will worry about you.

There is no cure.

Thankfully there are groups where you can talk to others that have been infected and who will understand you. With luck they'll also know of a really good sale on dog food and suppliments...
