The question was inevitable.
But...why isn't there a Porthos section?

BTW: When I see him I want to give him cheese.

Well, right after my own doggie - Porthos is the cutest dog ever and when I see him I want to pet him! :) If only there were more fields and trees on the ship (*LOL*) where he could run around and do 'dog' things.

Do not walk beside me for the path is narrow. In fact, just bugger off and leave me alone.

What about a combination answer?

When I see him I scream because I'm afraid of dogs but love Porthos anyway? :)

Don't care for dogs. I'm a cat man. I also think a cat is much better suited to starship life than a dog.

That's probably true; a cat is likely to fare much better on a Starship like the NX-01. On a starship like the Enterprise-D, though, which is like one giant living-room with hotel-style carpeting, I'd say dogs and cats would be equally suited.

And Porthos is very cute indeed.

I wanna pet his ears! :D He also makes me want to get a puppy...
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,

:thumbsup:
I agree Porthos should have his own section.
I think he's the best beagle since Snoopy! That's why he's on my sig!

I know there are those of you who would argue, "sure, if we give Porthos a section next Spot will want one and so would Aycheya." I say "why not?" Animal actors deserve a place for their fans as well, (even if some of them are animated :P )

I think he should get an own section, since he is no guest actor, but member of the "senior staff" ;P

I want a puppy then.
My parents won't let me get a dog,
because we don't have a garden.
So I wanna move quickly to a house with a garden and near my school.

Shlomi! You canine cannibal! Stay away from Porthos!.....although there are two dogs used in the show...so we would always have one left, if you would be really hungry :P

The question was inevitable. But...why isn't there a Porthos section?

Here here! It's a true disgrace that no one gave Porthos his own poll yet ;)

So I wanna move quickly to a house with a garden and near my school.

View Post

My parent once promised me the same, that as soon as we got a garden I would get a dog. Did I get one? Nooo...! *starts to mutter and wince about the outrage of it all and the traumatic effect it has had on my life* :P

On a serious note, don't think that a garden will be enough. A dog should get out at minimum 3 times a day, which I personal find too low. Imagine you getting only 3 times a day a chance to go to the bathroom.. Also, humans know things to do in a home (read, watch tv, talk, play games, etc.), but dogs have much less to do indoors. So the more time outside in a natural environment (places where they can snoop around, smell all sorts of scents, play), like a park, the more joy they have. And don't forget that when you walk your dog you have to have time to play and have fun (not just everytime 30 minutes, or something like that). And you have to let your dog out early in the morning and late in the evening (probably when it is already dark, depending on where you live) and inbetween. Others will have to want the dog to, because they will have to be able and willing to take care of her/him as well, when you are nor around. And don't forget that when you leave home, who will take care of the dog?

With other words, people who want dogs, think carefully! You have them for many years and it is a responsibility and can't chuck them away when it pleases you and the exciting new feeling of having a dog has gone :) I don't mean anyone in particular - I don't even know who has a dog or what the life of the dog is, but it has happened so often at animal shelters, that people dump after some time their dog or loose their interest when they are not as easy to have as they thought it would be :).

I kinda wondered sometimes where Porthos would go to the 'bathroom'. On Enterprise I doubt that they have a suitable dog place.. Does Archer let Porthos do his things in his quarters? :blink: I know he can clean it up, but a cat is easier (as already mentioned by johneh), because they have their own cat toilet, so to speak. But maybe by that time they have thought of something for pets onboard ;) But who takes Porthos for walks? Archer and some other crew, when they're not busy?

Ah, Porthos get's me all concerned about his fictious ST welfare :P
