Dog’s favorite toy comes to life.

Creeping kittehs.

Actual good news about monarch butterflies.

I think I have used these before, but some of them are new.

An especially good boi helping GOTV.

This one needs some explanation. I was in the surgery waiting room while Smokey had some roughed-up cartilage in his hip fixed. This flowering crab tree outside window the was full of cedar waxwings feasting on the fruit. During the couple hours I spent there at least a dozen birds crashed into the floor-to-ceiling windows. Apparently the little fruits on which the birds are feasting have fermented a bit. The sidewalk outside the windows was littered with stunned or dead birds. Clearly, the birds were risking an FUI violation — Flying Under the Influence, a misdemeanor subject to a fine of six tail feathers and/or 30 days in the cage.

    I LOVE Furry Fridays. Thank you for my weekly “fix.” I am going to be thinking about the service dogs watching live theater all day long now (with much happiness). XO
    (Also . . . my daughter’s cat opens the fridge and helps himself to whatever he may find. He can also do cupboard doors — and even regular door-doors. It’s very challenging for her. . . )

    Our living room is directly in a flight path for birds coming from the Trans-Canada Trail. Our living room wall is a cluster of ceiling-to-wall picture windows, and on the other side of the house are 3 large dinging room windows that cover half the wall. The birds could only see a through passage and were hitting the windows daily. Some got stunned and sadly, others died. We had a specialist come from Toronto to install clear sheeting with miniature black dots on the windows. These do not obscure our view, but the birds can now see the windows as a barrier and do not smash into them. Now, if they were drunk on fermented fruit, maybe that might still happen.

    SO many wonderful things here; where do I even begin commenting?

    Except that I guess I have to get a squeaking latex elephant costume for next Halloween.

    I’m loving that new approach to self-care! (Who’s a good girl? I am! I’m a good good girl)

    my heart just jumps at that “favorite toy comes to life.” Seriously dog religious experience.
    Since we’re talking about dogs, my neighbor’s dog started acting weird and protective. Two weeks later she found out she was pregnant.
    When I lived in a three-dog house. I had the fur pit experience every day. (I worked nights.)

  6. Dogs are really amazing with how they can sense changes in their people like that. So cool. And I love the choreographed stalking cat video! That one made me smile a lot.
