medtran, I'm convinced that cats are made out of rubber bands and Silly Putty. They are silly, for sure.

I love your non-pet raccoons, rr. It's almost as if they were posing for portrait pictures.

RP, Miley is a beautiful dog. He looks like he can wear you out if you let him.

Django stepped in my eye last night, walking across the head of the bed. I'm being a pirate for a few more days.

I really enjoyed those pictures of those coons RR and how you named them all.

It's no doubt how adorable they look but I have another story about two of the varmints in my yard spending their honeymoon shortly after I was widowed and living alone.

I lived smack in the middle of a neighborhood, and our entire yard, both front and back was surrounded by a six foot block wall fence. There was a courtyard inside the front doors with a large spa. I noticed some odd shaped animal tracks around the edge of the spa. That night all hell broke loose with their spa party. The next morning they were having Mimosa's in my orange tree, and breaking branches in my huge patio tree doing their thing! They were both huge, much bigger than the ones pictured.That went on for days. They scared the heck out of me being newly alone and I was sure glad when they left before the babies came.

Christmas in July! This is from last Christmas. Our little rescue rat terrier Chloe. She didn't seem too happy with the hat on.

Sweet! I'd say there's more than a bit of Alsation/German Shepherd in there so he's bound to be wonderful.

He's a shepherd mix, but at just 40 pounds (18 kilos), he is a lot smaller than the typical German shepherd.

Hail the Conquering Hero (& and I need to go on a diet!)

I don't think I posted this photo of the Wonder Horse after he took part in the local show. He came 5th in the lead rein veterans class. He came 5th (there were only 5 in the class but we'll gloss over that) and got an orange rosette which matched his coat better than a red rosette for first place would have done.

(Neither of us are looking our best as we had been caught in heavy rainfall earlier in the day)

I hope the following link works works - it looks a bit odd to me.

I love GSDs. My uncle had a GS/collie cross when I was a little girl. He had had a bad beginning and was terrified of men other than my uncle but he'd cheerfully put up with anything from us children - he gave rides to the littlies, allowed us to put dolls' bonnets on him and many a time on a hot summer's day he could be seen lying in the sun with a small child using his tummy as a pillow. He even let me hide in his kennel with him when I'd been naughty! This was the dog who wouldn't allow delivery men to come to the house. The coal man had to leave the coal in sacks outside the garden gate and the milkman left the milk next door!

When I grew up I had a GS bitch of my own. She gave a whole new interpretation of the term "sheep worrying". They worried her - she was terrified of them!

I love GSDs but can't have one as Tetley was attacked by one which was running loose and out of control and 16 years after the event he's still very frightened of them despite careful efforts to de-sensitise him.

I can't either now but it was ok when I checked after I'd posted.
