I think it's great that one's picture can be embedded in profiles. I'm just surprised how many dogs and cats I play with?

My partner's cat clicked on 6NT over my 1 opening.
Favourable lead, a couple of finesses and a suit breaking and the cat got us a top board!

Sometimes I think that the owner's pet could play better bridge than the owner! Ruff! Ruff! (old joke)

But if such a good thing happens then how come the term ď Cat and Dog storyĒ Is still used?Perhaps those who use it have never heard( itís good they havenít) of the game of Bridge.

No 'pussyfooting' there then(!) :P
It's not a sin to play bridge,but it's a crime if you play it badly(!) ;)

Patricia Sheinwold(wife of Alfred) in her book "Husbands and other men I've played with" related that she had two dogs
called 'Ruff' and 'Finesse' which proved to be tricky when admonishing them and playing bridge at the
same time .

Since I have learned how to put up a picture, I have done so. This is one that is complete inoffensive, but indicates one of my pastimes (apart from Bridge).
Yes, all of the dogs and cats reminds me of Victor Mollo's Bridge in the Meanerage series.

I have never heard this phrase. I assume it is the same as a cock and bull story?
