If the ever-evolving universe of the Internet
is any indication, this is indeed one pet-crazed world!!! Here at On The Lamb,
we hope to shed a little light into the nooks, crannies and corners of that world
wherever the interesting, offbeat stuff lies.

|Maybe Im way off base, but a quick and
I mean highly unscientific perusal of the Net seems to reveal some
interesting insights into our pet-maniacal tendencies.
Word-searching on Alta Vista
recently, I found "pet" mentioned more often (1,623,485 times) than the combined
hits from "mom" (1,215,171) and "apple pie" (a paltry 20,000)! The
word "dog" (4,173,009) outpaced "bible" (3,191,273) by a comfortable
margin. And "cat" (5,739,088) edged out America's pastime "baseball"
(4,644,844). Of course, they all have a long way to go to catch "God"
(12,238,890) and "sex" (27,974,022).
Alright, so with that in mind
youre probably saying, "Well then, who needs another pet web page with yet
another guy blathering on about dogs and cats and yada yada yada!!!!" Hehe, you do,
my friend, and heres why: We have no intention of telling you what you already know
-- such well-trampled subjects as "Fighting the Fierce Flea," "Whats
the Best Cat Litter?" and "Why Fido Wont Fetch My Slippers" will not
be aired here.....unless I break down someday and buy some slippers. Heh.
No, friends, On The Lamb has
much bigger fish to fry. (Oops! Sorry about that, "water pet" lovers we
wont really be Pammin up the skillet! We looooove our fishy friends.) In
coming months, well take a look at pet psychics, what to do if you find a stray dog
roaming your neighborhood, pet talent agents, what cats think about, and a variety of
other subjects destined to tickle your funny bone and tug at your heart strings.
Wed also like to hear
whats on your mind when it comes to pets. I just have one rule: BE INTERESTING!!! :)
Were searching for bits of wisdom far beyond what youd find at the end of
every Sunday-morning "Marmaduke" comic strip. (Remember? Blanche Blankpage
writes: "Felicity the feminine feline is soooo persnickety that she REFUSES to
eat her tuna out of anything but a RED BOWL!!!!!" Wow, you dont
No, intelligent pet lover, we seek
the truly unusual, the fantastically heart-warming,
and yes the outright hilarious. Think you and
your pet are up to the task?? Then bark in
