Now I'm wanting to change it to "Angel" and see if it does any good!

Actually, 4-H programs are offered in urban and suburban areas, too; they just do different activities. But the goals of leadership development and community service are the same.

I didn't mean to imply that that there was no 4-H other than in farming communities, just that they are more common there.

Thanks GG. Sounds good.

It sounds a bit like Scouts and Guides over here.

I first want to say that I have a morbid fear of anything rodent. I can't watch them on TV and when our previous house was infested I went to stay with a friend until they were evicted. And then I insisted we move! It stems from a horrific experience in my university days.

Anyway, this leaves me on the fence of being proud of my little Monkey or grossed out at the thought. She caught her very first mouse today in our back yard (the gross out part because that means they are "out there"). Actually I don't know if it is a mouse or a rat and it really doesn't matter.

I didn't let her kill it, so it is still out there somewhere, but Violet also considers herself a pretty keen mouser and probably will scare it away (or something else I don't want to think about).

It is hard when you don't want to see bad happen to any living creature, but you are totally afraid of that creature!

I hear ya, Laurie. My kitty used to always go after critters...well, still does on occasion. The latest one was a scorpion. He's more of an inside kitty now, since he was beaten up by a neighborhood cat several months ago and needed surgery.

I do NOT miss those days of finding 'gifts' for me on the patio. I know he loves me, he doesn't need to prove it by bringing me dead ickies.

I once picked up a gnawed on mouse head that my cat dropped at my feet as I got home and I said, "What the heck is this?" Ackkk!

My German Shepherd's days are numbered. Yesterday she couldn't even stand unless I put a leash on her and commanded her. No tugging, she just knew I meant business. I tried to help her stand beforehand and she yelped in pain. Today she's relatively fine. Better as the day goes on. I dug her grave yesterday... Hopefully it will be a while before I put the dirt back in.

Pac I am so sorry about your dog. I hope you have some good time together before her time.
