According to Modern Dog magazine, "March 3rd is What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs? Day, one of the most important holidays of the year. Sit back and think about the chaos your furry friends could cause if only they hadn't been shafted by evolution." I kid you not...it's on page 14 of the Spring 2010 edition!
Well, I've sat back and thought about it, and I can't imagine what life would be like if Tess and Jazz were in charge of the remote (although Jazz does seem to enjoy hockey) and they could text me their demands for a comfortable life (treats, treats, and more treats) or phone their friends while I was at work (Hello...Sammie? Let's get together later for some agility or maybe some wrestling). Although we treat these two as if they were children, there are certain advantages to them being just, well, dogs!! For now, I think we should leave this opposable thumbs business to the humans :)
