Cowart's Common Room
Coffee time!

Uploaded Image

Time for some coffee and perhaps a slice of cake too. This is coalition cake - renamed in honour of the current British political wrangling, but more usually known as marble cake.

Today's coffee is by Cafe Direct, a fairly traded pot of deliciousness. Sadly I've thrown away the bag without noting bean or country of origin, but it is strength three.

In honour of tiny canine Cooer Yorkie, today's coffee time is dedicated to our doggy friends.

"The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too." Samuel Butler.

"My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet." Edith Wharton.

"My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am." Author Unknown.

"They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation." Jerome K. Jerome

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland

What will you and your dog be doing today?

Re:
Preseli Mags's Avatar Of course! Coffee and cake for everyone. Cats, guinea pigs and horses welcome too. Everyone and every pet welcome to celebrate the bond between human and animal (but particularly dogs, in honour of Yorkie).

Rufus likes cake too, but he is sideways - how can I get him to stand up, I wonder?

Re:
Jaynebeth's Avatar I have an office dog calle Meg who goes home every day with one of my friends.

I do however understand the link and need to communicate with man's best friend - that's why I have a parrot called Thumper! he asks me most days how I am, would I like a cup of tea, recites phone numbers, imitates microwave / dishwasher pings and generally has a moan about most people - particularly the snot nose little demon from next door whom he uses some very choice phrases about.

Re:
I don't have a dog, and can't eat cake - but I can certainly send lots of healing purple vibes to Faith and her wee doglet!

Re:
ChrisH's Avatar Lovely post - here's to our canine companions though mine is a sculptured greyhound not a real one, alas. Now may I have a huge piece of that cake and plenty of coffee?

Re:
I would love some cake to go with my tea, which I'll have as soon as I make breakfast (yes it's that time on this side of the pond).

Miss Sadie, however is ready for cake at any time (but only a small piece, please).

More purple vibes and hugs to Faith and her Yorkie. Dogs are such good companions!
