That was a forged post. Apparently, Michael's back.

Thanks Matt! I sure can't tell. I am glad there are people like you that can tell from the headers.

A little bit of header stuff, but mostly content.

Matt. Rocky's a Dog.
thats not exactly treating the dog as a fmily member now is it,

I disagree.
How many children sleep in the same room as their parents? Is a child who has his own room, or shares one with a brother or sister, not part of the family?
Just because a dog doesn't share the room doesn't automatically make it not a family member.
The key is giving them enough attention the rest of the day.

Yes, my dog sleeps on the bed, along with the cat

Hate to break it to you Matt, but like I said in the e-mail I sent you, there was no forgery. All the posts in this thread attributed to me were written by me.

Sorry to not get back to you on email (I'm dealing with a ton of that right now), but there were a couple of things that led me to believe it wasn't you - the main one being that you tried relocating Moogli to the basement.

NP. I figured that was it. As for relocating him to the basement, that was made under a great deal of duress. Once I told Genevieve that if she wanted him to stop crying, that she would be going down the stairs all the time, the idea got shelved. Now he is in the bedroom in the corner. Settles down quite quietly at night, no squirtguns needed any more.

Funny story with that. When I leave for work, Moogli gets to sleep the rest of the morning in bed with Gen. Yesterday morning, when Gen woke up, she couldn't feel him in bed with her so she looked around in a panic. The first thought in her head was that she had squished him flat. (I know I know, but as Gen gets more pregnant, her brains are turning to mush. I expect to come home one day to find whiteout on the laptop) She looked and looked in the bed under the covers for him in a panic. She looked downtairs in the living room to see if he had gone down to one of the couches and crashed on a pillow. Finally, she gets back upstairs and sees him asleep (still) in his cage.

I thought Matt was referring to one of Gwen's posts as the Michael "forgery," not one of yours.
Call me confused, but be sure to call me for dinner, too.

SORRY CULPRIT, YOU THINK DOGS DONT HAVE FEELINGS, your a superior being on this earth, and animals dont share the same things humans do, get a life! What i am talking about is stress, it takes a toll on a dogs happiness and even immune system. a happy dog, is a healthy dog! Wolf
yes, you have a good point, the only thing is most children like to come to their parents bed, until they understand why they need to stay in their room or because years of repetition they got use to it. the dog has a much shorter life span, and doesnt understand humans that dont know how to convey a message to them very well. Its not as much as your telling the dog that he is not a family member, your missing the point.

Its the fact that you would be doing the dog much better by not seperating him from you half of his life(during the nights), i think the dog would much rather spend more time with his caretaker(not owner, not master, but guardian and friend) Would you cage your child in the basement? I suppose you would say, ITS A DOG, well i would say, ITS AS LIFE.
