The Chewy-ha-ha isn't sure of what to make of all this white stuff.

Dog rule #1: When in doubt, bark loudly and incessantly at it.

 photo Purrl.jpg

This is the newest addition to our family. At the moment I'm calling her Purrl. I know it's blurry, but it's hard to get a non-blurry picture of her.

One of my coworkers found her in the snow with her eyes stuck shut. She was wormy and sick, but she is doing much better now.

Cool late Xmas gift, Purrl: a new family! She looks like she's going to be a fluffy cat.

Not a pet in the traditional sense (he doesn't live in the house, nor does he curl up in my lap!), but here is my horse, doing his best "Blue Steel"



and here is his "Magnum"

Today, Barkley qualified for his CGC at the Denver Dog Show Cluster. Granted, we could have done it years ago, but, well, at least I got around to it! He's now Fidelity's Manhattan Gamble, IT, CGC, TT. He did his usual incredible and poised job. I just adore this pup!

Joe--
I hope you all had a great time! I rarely miss the Maryland show! Hope you were able to catch the Muttville Comix show.

wanderwoman, purrl is very cute -- and yes, it can be tough to get a non-blurry pic of a kitten!

The story of how you got her reminds me of my friend's kitty Scout, although Purrl seems to have been in better shape. Yay for kitty rescuers!

Sid, I just gave you a nose "boop!" through the computer screen. Hope I didn't digitally zap it.

Barkley, your face was made for the cell phone camera! (and yes, dentals suck.)

My job on the side is petsitting, and volunteering for a local dog rescue. The dog on the left is Churchill, a rather large (230 pounds!) mastiff who belongs to one of the founders of the rescue. The dog on the right is Bear, a Great White Pyrenees who came from an unknown, but very abusive background.

Bear does not like other dogs, at all, and has been savaging at Churchill since he came into the house. It has taken strenuous work, lots of positive reinforcement, a few fast grabs, and one frighteningly memorable instance of having to wrestle Bear down to the ground, but today a truce was struck. Long may it last.

Well done LadyLockeout. Bear still seems to be keeping eye on Churchill though.

You left out, "and some serious courage."

Love that photo.
