“Yiddish for Dog & Cat Lovers”
HAS ANYONE EVER TOLD YOU…
. The Yiddish expression, “Zai shtimen vi a katz un a hunt” means “They agree like cat and dog”?
. Comic Adam Sandler, has a bulldog named “Matzoball”?
. There’s a website, http://www.m-o-D-t.com, which stands for “member of the Dog tribe”?
. “Bark Mitzvahs” are being held and some synagogues have begun to hold annual “Blessings of the Animals” to coicide with the reading of the story of Noah’s Ark?
. 9.8 million people celebrate their dog’s birthdays; 13.4 million cats party on their birthdays?
. Pets aboard the Queen-Mary 2 Trans-Atlantic cruises get their own QM2-logo “mantel” (coat). Add to that a Frisbee, name tag, food dish and scoop; a complimentary “portret” (portrait) with you; a crossing certificate and personalized cruise card. Cats even get their own posts and scratchers?
. 85% of pet owners admit to having told their bosses that they have come down with something but actually spent their day tending to their animal “bagleyter” (companion)”?
