It's a rat! The words "rat" and "cute" are impossible to use in the same sentence. Ok, used them both in the same sentence myself, but you know what I mean

Which is the 'cute' part?

I think these BBC camera folk need to do some photo work in Harlem if they really want to see some biiiiig rats! I remember doing some might fast running during my teen years when going to a concert on 125th street and getting blocked by THE RAT THAT ATE MANHATTAN!

Ok, that is a little cute... but would have been cuter if it were bunnies instead of rats. I still wouldn't like the rat, even if it had a teddy bear!

Where's the poll fairy when you need one?

But in this case, we don't really need one, is silly with a poll where the only two viable options would be "No" and "NOOOOOO!"

isn't that the whole point of terriers ? i think you pretty much have to choose one or the other, there's no "both" there.

actually rats don't bother me so much, except for city rats because they're kind of dirty and scary and probably carrying the plague. i've seen my share (not that many, but a few) of large rats in the streets on my way home from a concert at 4 am ; the streets are deserted, so i guess they figure they've got the place to themselves and can wander around freely.

Alas, 'tis true, though Airedale Terriers bely their name by being too big to "go to ground". They're still prone to the "prey drive" though (he says, remembering Monty completely and utterly failing to chase down a kangaroo).

Cheers,
Marc
