Half A Mind
MICAH: We are going to double your Sunday Smile today. We just know you'll be going ahhhhhh.
MARCUS: Yes, a double dose of man's best friend doing what he does best, watching out for his best friend.
RUSTY: Just a minute. How do you think you're going to get away with calling yourself "man's best friend."
SAM: Pssst, Marcus, I warned you to never call us that in front of the ... um, the c-a-t-s.
CYNDI: We can spell, Sam! And we cats are every bit as loyal as you dogs. Look how we've stuck by Jan even though she keeps hogging the computer and forgetting to put food in our bowl.
MERCI: Have you considered the reason you're all so slim is because Jan put you on a d-i-e-t and deliberately forgets to fill your bowl?
CAMERON: That's not true! Unlike you d-o-g-s, we cats can control our appetites and Jan trusts us to eat sensibly. She forgets to put food in our bowl for the same reason she forgets to feed you on a schedule. She only has half a mind.
PERCY: I'm going to tell Jan you said she only has half a mind. That wasn't nice!
MICAH: He said that because Jan is always saying things like, I have half a mind to make you dogs stay outside until you learn to wipe the mud off your feet before you come inside. He was just telling the truth!
BUDDY: Have you all forgotten our friends are reading this? Where is the funny in Funny Farm when we're fighting amongst ourselves?
SAM: I guess this is a good time to change the subject and introduce the videos. The first one is a small dog racing along beside an ambulance taking his master to the hospital after a seizure. Eventually, they opened the door for him so he could ride along.
(Sorry, that video is no longer available.)
PERCY: And the second one is Buddy. He jumped on the ambulance ledge when his human had a heart attack and was being rushed to the hospital. He rode that way for 20 miles, until a motorist flagged down the ambulance and Buddy was taken inside the vehicle.
