The Conscience of a Dog (or Cat)

Look how remorseful these dogs are, after they’ve done something really bad. Problem is, the dog’s conscience only kicks in after the fact. And we don’t know when a cat’s conscience becomes activated. Maybe never.

Our cat Buster used to get in a lot of trouble. His sister, Missy, hardly ever. But when she did, but when it was her rare turn to get rebuked, Buster showed unbounded glee. Did he love it!

They’re more like us than we care to admit.

    we have the two Aussies who get in trouble every single day, and have to go outside and neither of them shows the slightest remorse. I think they believe we are unreasonable for objecting to any of their antics.
