This is him yesterday, out in the rain. YouTube is taking forever to get rid of the shakiness of the video. It says the editing is in progress and will be ready in a little while. It's been saying that since last night.

Nice puddy-tat. I love tabbies. Many years ago I knew a girl who had a Burmese who loved water and would roll and play in it whenever he got the chance.

Thank you, I think he's beautiful.

He does seem to still having a good time. He really likes his little outings into the yard. He has been out in the rain a second time this morning. This time he seemed to want to check something on the far side of the yard. Once he had checked, he came back in.

I don't know if it helps but Violet is a border collie boxer who doesn't know she is a dog.....she thinks she is human and we don't have the heart to tell her otherwise!

I once had a dog like that. She thought she made all the decisions in the house. I wonder if it's just bitches or if dogs are like that too.

I can understand very easily your love of Horse. We have wild mustangs here in the States. I love watching them run across the hills. Every year they have a roundup of them and certain ones are put up for adoption. Those that aren't adopted are sent back to be wild. Adoption is not that easy either. You have to prove that you own a ranch or farm for the horse and that the horse will not be used for rodeo or other purpose that will be harmful to the animal. Then once you get the animal home, the hard work begins. It is up to the new owner to break it and turn it into a horse that can be ridden. Good Luck to the new owner.

We still have fox hunting here, mostly in Virginia as far as I know. When Jackie Kennedy was in the White House she often would go to the hounds! Of course that meant the Secret Service had to ride along with her and keep up with her.

There was a group of 4-H girls from another part of the state that rode without a bridle, saddle or any leather at all. They gave all the commands with only their knees. No hands at all. Needles to say, they always went home with the Blue Ribbon.

No, Teddy thinks he is human also. He loves cheese, and most food that humans eat. Including veggies. Spike buys Teddy roast beef while he eats leftover rotisserie chicken. He used to buy turkey for him. But ever since Spike started to buy the roast beef, he won't touch the turkey meat. Spoiled rotten!

So glad to hear that Shreddy is still able to enjoy his treks outdoors.
