Humourous Pet Anecdotes Index Page


Use the Babel Fish site to translate this page into an approximation of Chinese, German, Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish! I say approximation because the results won't be reliable, and may be funnier than the the item being translated. At least you should be able to get the general idea of the content...


Welcome to the Pet Anecdotes list! I decided that it was long overdue for an overhaul. Having the whole thing on one huge page makes it rather daunting to read, as well as placing demands on the web server. The new index has thumbnail descriptions to interest the reader, and organization of the files by critter (cat, dog, other) makes a more logical connection. I have also kept the size of the individual files down to 10 anecdotes each to make things more manageable.

I hope that this allows you to enjoy the list more! If you have any anecdotes that you would like to contribute, please mail me!

Overhaul done February 3, 2002. Latest update: April 28, 2002.
