I have Tactical Dogs. They are short legged, each has their own camouflage pattern, and they will do anything for a Milk Bone (no affiliation). Both of them have quadrupedal drive train systems, good optics, great sound sensors, and are equipped with strong burgler repelling sound producing devices in both Arf and Ruff languages. They are both equipped with marking devices which are able to be detected by a well trained nose, but are not detectable by optics under most conditions, at least after the marking material has dried. Both respond to voice command although there are apparently some computer glitches in their voice recognition software. All their software is kept secure under a hardened calcium armour plating. The Tactical dogs do have a built in "clap on-clap off" switch built into their software program. It was a patch applied to try and solve some of their voice recognition programming glitches.

wildman,

Too funny!The voice recognition software in my tactical dog definitely has some bugs in it too.

Nope, not enough protection. Plate armor or don't even try!

Just add a lot of water, a little meat like pork, a little salt, and 12hrs of low heat.

Pour beans over rice if you 're in a Cajun mood or over cornbread if you're in a Texian mood.

If you bought your BOB pre-made from a REAL survival/survivalist site and have never examined or added to it?

Dude, those things are self-cleaning! Usually no human washing is required unless they get into some deep doodoo.

Revised "tell": if you try to bathe your cat, you're new at this.

I was < 5 at the time & thought kitty needed a bath! grin Had about 1/4" of water in the tub & tried to set him in. One claw (not one paw full, one scratch) & I had the sense to let him go his way & I went mine. I figured out real quick about cats being self washing.


The only way I'd try to wash a cat today is start the shower, close the door, & toss cat over the top of the door.
