                         NOTE FROM SANDRA:

     This week's list was inspired by a news item concerning
    a Maine man who claims that he and his dog "live together
     as a married couple."  Plenty of things wrong with that 
        picture, especially from the dog's point of view.
        Here are some things Mr. "I Heart My Dog Waaaaay
                 Too Much" neglected to consider:


       The Top 9 Worst Things About Being Married to a Pet


 9> Goldfish: Constantly complaining, "You never take me anywhere."

 8> Most of the wedding gifts from her side of the family are 
    dead animals.

 7> Honeymoon budget shot to hell after you settle out of 
    court with the jeweler your fiancée mauled the during 
    the ring-sizing.

 6> Rabbit: Goes berserk when you mistake her for a slipper.

    reduces your leverage in disagreements.

    7-year itch.

 3> Bird: Oral sex is downright painful.

 2> People always comment on the "age difference" thing.

    replaced your wife with a similar-looking one after she dies.
