HONORABLE MENTION (in random order)

  – I’m a Cat trapped in a Dog’s body. My parents just don’t understand.
  – I should have stopped after 3 beers.
  – Why is our owner comparing me with her husband?
  – All I saw was when they sang, “Ya put yer right foot in…”  After that, they locked me in the bathroom.
  – Yeah, they’re sharp…my Mom says is that Dad was a porcupine.
  – Cockapoos, labradoodles, meagles, foxingese, chinaranians…nobody wants mutts like us anymore.
  – Ever since Bo was adopted by the Obamas, he has no time for us anymore.
  – I think I got the swine flu.  I only want to roll over in the mud.
  – I forgot to do the math assignment last night.  I know,  I’ll tell the teacher my owner ate my homework.
  – It’s 7 am.  Of course, I’m a little grouchy.  Don’t you know to let sleeping dogs lie.
  – I feed my sled dogs “Me-ams” because there is no, “I” in team.
  – My owner has taken that “change” bit too far cuz I’m now getting cat chow.
  – My master said, “I’m not your best friend.” She’s mad about something.
  – So when I asked her out, she said I was barking up the wrong tree.
  – My wife had nine beautiful puppies, and then she got a ticket for littering!
  – There I was, sniffing like any normal dog, when this dog with a white stripe down his back decided he didn’t like it!
  – You can be a good dog for years, but roll in the mud and go in the house just once…
  – I don’t know why, but they got really mad when I bit the guy in the red suit in our fireplace.

  – It’s just not the same since Bo moved to DC.
  – The Secret Service won’t let me see Bo.
  – I used to be a Hunting Dog, until the cops confiscated my guns.
  – If you ask me, Cats are just too damn curious.
  – The vet said I’ve only got a year to live… and he’s talking dog years!
  – I ask you, how can a stupid meow be cuter than a bark.
  – I love roadkill, but who can afford the gas.
  – We need a government bailed out at Dinner Dogfood, then they could use real meat.
  – The Hokey Pokey stinks…which left foot do you put in?
  – One mistake and my career as a Champion Breeder ended forever…damn barbed wire fence.
  – Swine Flu, Mad Cows and bird flu…I’m worried that we’re next on the menu.
