Thanks, PK.  Very amusing :)

I have a little cartoon on my fridge from Real Life Adventures.  Dog is sitting with a distessed look on it's face and cat is sleeping.  They each have a balloon over their heads with their thoughts.  

The dog is thinking,  "They haven't petted me in three minutes.  I wonder if they still love me?"

The cat is thinking,  "Nobody better come over here and try and pet me.  I'm all curled up here."
