Seriously, smell your dogs paw (the pads) and tell me what snack it smells like. You will be surprised. And no you don't have to email Margo and ask her if I am nuts. (I hope she doesn't read this thread)

Hm, smelling a dog's paws.

I haven't in two years, but I used to love to. They always smelled like dirt. Sortof empty, sky and simple dirt. Pretty much the same smell I smell when this cat cuddles up after being outside.

Why is our image of lovemaking secluded to f###ing? I have no desire to f### this cat, but we make love, sometimes.

I sniffed Fat Bob's paws and it didn't smell like no snack.
He just came from the litter box.

one wonders what possessed anyone to go to the trouble of smelling their dog's paws.

The dog limps into the bar and says..."I'm lookin fer the man who shot my paw."

Now com'on Peter. I left the nasty words off screen, why didn't you?

Anyone who hasn't made love to their animal hasn't really had an animal. Freud was wrong, it isn't, everything, about sex. Sometimes it's just fellow animals, being in a body, loving each other.

Fat Bob just rams his head into my leg.
Nothing the least bit sexual about that.
I don't think he loves me, he just knows that I know how to open the can.
If he cuddles up, he's cold.
Cats are just users Jack.

Jack, you didn't leave the words off the screen, you just put number signs in them. The intent was still there, and everyone knows what the word is. I prefer not to bull**** myself, but I deferred at Claudia's request.

As for "f##king' your cat, make sure you ask her nicely and buy her dinner and drinks.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

You are one deranged chicken...:D:eek::D

Fritos, dogs paws smell like Fritos corn chips.

Its because they secret urine through their pads. So I have heard.

ishmael
05-12-2006, 09:25 PM
Why is it freaking you out?

You're right that cats are aloof. And they will never have the attachment of a dawg. But if you spend time with them an attachment, an understanding, developes.


She, Cattawumpus, has come to understand I won't hurt her. That's primary. But she's also come to understand my lovemaking is intended for just that, love, affection. She's even letting me touch her back toes, which heretofore led to a fight.

I listen to what she says, and modify my behavior to her's. I don't call her Queen of the Universe for no reason. LOL

People who don't make love to their animals, listen, are missing much importance.

It has nothing to do with sex.

I have to ask, did you know that prior to the question or did you go smell them?;)

PatCox
05-12-2006, 09:27 PM
Ish, wow, all I can say is wow. Guess I am going to have to continue missing out on making love to my pets. I'm just not as spiritual as you, I guess.

Peter Malcolm Jardine
05-12-2006, 09:27 PM
Ummm......

Okay, I admit it. I went and smelled dem.

I'd still rather sniff you.:D

Tristan
05-12-2006, 09:29 PM
Tristan got it.:D

Damn, I want my prize! Actually, I belong to a Welsh terrier forum, and every so often the subject of the smell of dogs paws comes up. Mine smell like fritos as do most others. As to making love with one's cats and dogs, I heartily agree, love our two cats and two dogs, has nothing to do with sex. One of our cats sleeps on my pillow on cold winter nights, just above my head. A wonderful heat warmer. And the dogs love to sleep in our laps. Bless them all. And a fine evening to you Claudia.

PatCox
05-12-2006, 09:31 PM
Further research reveals its because they often pee on their feet, or step in their pee afterwards.

Claudia

Tristan
05-12-2006, 09:38 PM
They may sweat a bit through their pads and foot skin but pee on their feet? NEVER. My dogs pee and poop in the house occasionally and they avoid it like the plague. Of course I step in it regularly (the problem of elder vision). My feet smell like dog sh-t or pee, the dogs feet smell delicious, like fritos!

ishmael
05-12-2006, 09:41 PM
What is so wow about it, Pat? I loved to smell all of Sheba, and she loved to smell all of me. Catawumpous is different, but an animal, a bit wilder than Sheba, who brings that world to me. What is wrong with smelling her paws, which I do occasionally? I even nibble on them occasionally.

05-12-2006, 09:43 PM
Wait................... Are you saying that Fritos smell like dog pee?
Websters paws usually smell like Doug pee, but that's because I pee off the porch right where he likes to jump up from the lawn.....

I pee in the back yard all the time (it's pretty private), but the dogs know my pee is terribly corrosive and they avoid it and the huge holes it eats in the quartz sand soil as they trot about on their delicious frito smelling footsies

Peter,

I usually nibble on her ears, if that makes you feel better.

It's interesting that on the 150th anniversary of Freud's birth this comes up.

I can't say what other people feel about their animals, but to me they are fellow creatures, with a whole range of psychology. I do my best to treat them with respect. A part of that is engaging their sensual, animal nature, which, Freud in abeyance, is not about sex. They want love, respect, and animal comfort. Give it, and the rest will work itself out.

So many treat their fellows as possessions. They aren't

Sorry for the thread drift, Claudia.


Freud insisted, even after losing some of his brightest students like Jung and Adler, that the main motivating force in human action was sex. It became almost an obsession. As one of the seminal figures of the last century he fostered a seemingly more open attitude towards sex. Not all bad, but a leitmotiv that plays in the background of every human action now is, "Is this sexual?" Of course, even Freud himself once remarked that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

I'm not at all sure he helped us with our animal sensuality, which is very different from sex. Not completely removed, but different.

In some ways, by making sex an image out of the psyche that supposedly colored everything, rather than a communion that's very human, he took us away from our basic sensual nature. So now, when I speak of making love to my cat I have to define that. People automatically draw odd conclusions. That's, in part, a legacy of Freud's.

I never thought of fritos, but definately better than a stinky ear. I recall the flowering plums in Berkeley smelled like corn torillas.

Definitely Fritos, but to varying degrees. Teddy, big goof, smells to high heaven of Fritos. Summer and Simba, gentle girls, barely smell at all.

Pat's theory gets my endorsement.

Sniffin dog paws ,and having sex with cats...hate to see what you people would do with a horse. :D

paladin
05-13-2006, 07:55 AM
welllll...horses hooves are a bit different....they do smell, but kinda musty to me.....in addition to a blunt skinning knife like the little 4 inch buck, I carried a pretty heavy stainless steel spoon that had been sharpened around the edges for removing small stones from under the shoe, and scraping the hoof if there seemed to be a little damage....

huisjen
05-13-2006, 08:36 AM
That's another reason that horses hold less intrest to me. My lawyer showed me the scars in his hands. They were repeatedly torn up by shoe nails back when he was a farrier.

Years from now when people search on "cats paws" this thread will pop up when people are expecting something like this:

cat's-paw also cats·paw (khttp://img.tfd.com/hm/GIF/abreve.giftshttp://img.tfd.com/hm/GIF/prime.gifpôhttp://img.tfd.com/hm/GIF/lprime.gif) n. pl. cat's-paws also cats·paws 1. A person used by another as a dupe or tool.

On the topic of the Cancer Relay. I contibute to the cause in my own way. Lost my mother to cancer many years ago. Your efforts with the relay should be applauded and are greatly appreciated by myself and many many others that have had personal experience with cancer. The pictures from the relay were great and brought the event to us all.
