Re: Porthos has died.

Probably because they would eventually realize we had control of the refrigerator and the door and the snacks and were withholding these things and then they would kill us and eat us.

It would take dogs a good 25 years to figure this out and cats a good 35. This is why they need to die earlier otherwise they would all end up like ancient pet chimpanzees, mad and homicidal.

And nobody wants mad, homicidal chimpanzees.

Well, except reality show producers.

Cats are vicious killers who torture wounded prey for sport, even if the have every reason to believe they'll be more than adequately fed by their human acquaintances.

Re: Porthos has died.

But they're cute.

Especially when they watch you and silently plot your death.

I once had a cat who figured out that I kept her semi-moist food pouches in a cabinet above the refrigerator. One day I came home from work to find ripped open pouches on the floor.

Some dogs are good at that sort of reasoning too.

Sorry to hear this.

I have a beagle. They're the best dog nature ever designed.
Trip would disagree.

My dog... not Trinneer.

Goodbye, Porthos. You were the most true to form, consistently written character on Enterprise.

Re: Porthos has died.

Porthos deserved his own episode, and not some innuendo-laden turkey where the poor dog is hovering on the verge of certain death.

Re: Porthos has died.

We needed a Porthos-eye view of an episode with him coming across something aboard that sensors don't detect, with him barking or yelping for someone to come see.

I'm kind of surprised they never did that.

Just what Enterprise needed... a Lassie episode to make them look even more silly and incompetent!

Re: Porthos has died.

But think of all the hilarious things Porthos could have sniffed..

I'd rather not. I don't like dogs.

Re: Porthos has died.

If he doesn't like dogs or cats he'd better like monkeys.

We'd better salvage something cool and humorous from this.
