Our TBTL friendos spend a lot of time talking about their daily lives, so it’s no surprise that their animals are part of the fabric of the show. But what about the furry friends who came before? Ann and Christy decide it’s high time to take a look back at two TBTL pets of yesteryear: Luke’s cat Pagoda and dog MoMo. We debate whether Pagoda’s dignity is eroded by being forced to use the toilet and then listen to Luke abandon his dignity when he chooses not to. MoMo has some issues (and an affinity for a specific piece of floor covering). Luke is apparently less scary than a Mexican floor installer, but only slightly. As far as our own animals go, Christy has a pet history littered with tragedy, while Ann “trained” an amazing circus hamster. Then we spend way too much time talking about the Empire Today carpet guy and the new computer-generated Peanuts characters. Plus, the eternal wisdom of Bonnie Raitt.
This show contains clips from the following TBTL episodes: 3/29/2010 (Luke is afraid of cats); 1/5/2010 (Vanessa Romo, Litter Kwitter, cat potty training, pink eye, feline dignity); 8/26/2010 (litter box, CatGenie); 9/14/2010 (MoMo is adopted, hoarders); 9/16/2010 & 9/27/2010 & 10/7/2010 (MoMo won’t go down stairs, dog training, peeing in the yard); 2/8/2011 & 2/9/2011 (MoMo got angry, dog depression, Bonnie Raitt, Mexican carpet installers, Empire Today carpet).
