Bah !! Dogs are arse licking carrion eating disease vectors and they remind me of giant four legged wingless blowflies ! There has never been any such thing as a clean dog and dogs should be prohibited in all urban areas. Cats are no better, they stink, and they are hosts to the parasite toxoplasma, which can cause horrible birth defects in children born to women who have been exposed to cats. All those anthropomorphic ratbags who " love " dogs and cats should be banished to a remote island where their stupidity cannot affect others.

You have 70 cats
Why would I lie about that?
Maybe because you are an as--o-e like your dad [ well maybe not the milkman should have been smarter than a falling down drunk irish firemen]and don't know anything about me,
You didn't have the BALLS to show up at Jack Astors and meet me, Gump, and THE COMMIE.
You are the person the cat lovers should "HATE"
YOU "HAT" cats, How do you HAT a cat, Do you skin them and tan the hides and make hats out of them like they do minks?
You are nothing but a drunk irishmen like your dad was, if it wasn't for the Brotherhood the firemen have your old man would have been fired years before he got to retire.
I have heard stories from a lot of the old Blackthorns over the last 20 years how there were two old Blackthorn firemen that went to "WORK" every night that all the other firefighters had to make sure they went to bed and got some sleep and when they woke up they had to clean the firehouse and make sure there was some hot food made up for when the REAL FIREFIGHTERS came back from a fire one of them went out and set.
too bad you only learned spelling and grammar in school.
if you had learned other things like math or even do something with your hands you might have a " real skill "
but NO you had to do just what your dad did and take the real working taxpayer for every cent you could get.
YOU have taken the taxpayer for tens of thousands of dollars more than I ever did and you don't have the balls to admit it.
Yes I did take 42 dollars in food stampe back in the Blizzard of 77 so did 600,000 other people including your mom and dad.
Have anice night

Dogs and cats might make for a happy home but look after and control them properly so they don't p*ss the neighbours off.
If you don't keep them under control so they don't cause other people problems you don't deserve to have them.
