Owl Story From Alice

This owl was brought into the veterinary hospital where my daughter-on-law, Lisa, works. It had been hit by a car and was stunned. Dr. Lee administered steriods and treated it for a sore body. It was taken to Oak Mountain Raptor Sanctuary where it is doing well. The second photo shows Dr. Lee displaying the large wingspan.

Dog Tricks to Be Envied

I think every dog owner loves to boast, perhaps even exaggerate, the wonderful virtues and capabilities of their dog. The ole "My dog's bigger than your dog" line. Surely everyone enjoys a well trained dog, and it is true that some are trained in such a way to 'wow' the onlooker. Here are a few fun Etsy listings of 'trained' dogs.

And here is a very recent video that has already gone viral.

Dear God: Is it on purpose that our names are spelled the same? Only in reverse? Dear God: Why do humans smell the flowers, but seldom, if ever, smell each other?

Dear God: When we get to heaven, can we sit on the couch? Or will it be the same old story?

Dear God: Why are there cars named after the jaguar, the cougar, the mustang, the colt, the sting ray and the rabbit, but not ONE named for a dog? How often do you see a cougar riding around? We love a nice car ride! Would it be so hard to rename the 'Chrysler Eagle' the 'Chrysler Beagle'?

Dear God: If a dog barks his head off in the forest and no human hears him, is he still a bad dog?

Dear God: We dogs can understand human verbal instructions, hand signals, whistles, horns, clickers, beepers, scent IDs, electromagnetic energy fields, and frisbee flight paths. What do humans understand?

Dear God: More meatballs, less spaghetti please.

Dear God: Are there mailmen in heaven? If there are, will I have to apologize?

Dear God: Here is a list of
just some of the things I must remember
to be a good Dog:
1. I will not eat the cat's food before he eats
it or after he throws it up.
2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish,
crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.
3. The Litter Box is not a cookie jar.
4. The sofa is not a 'face towel'.
5. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.
6. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's
underwear when he's on the toilet.
7. Sticking my nose into someone's
crotch is an unacceptable way of saying 'hello'.
8. I don't need to suddenly stand
straight up when I'm under the coffee table..
9. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before
entering the house - not after.
10. I will not come in from outside,
and immediately drag my butt across the carpet.
11. I will not sit in the middle of the living
room, and lick my crotch.
12. The cat is not a 'squeaky toy',
so when I play with him and he makes that noise,
it's usually not a good thing.

The Best Day

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”

— Bob Moawad, motivational speaker and writer.

Rescued Bobcat

My daughter-in-law works at a veterinarian's office. She had an interesting vistor this week. This baby bobcat was found abandoned by its mom in the woods. The family that brought it in are going to raise it and it will be taken to a sanctuary in Tennessee.

Slippers Anyone? From Cool to Creepy!

Our Rocket Dog discussion on the Petsjubilee forum got me thinking about slippers! Here are a few interesting facts.

~Because of the foreign people being uneducated to the Japanese customs, they would enter the Japanese homes with shoes on their feet. For this reason, special slippers were designed for the foreigners to slip on over their shoes before entering the home, keeping the inside sanitary. They also have toilet slippers because the toilet area of a Japanese home is considered unsanitary.

~Pope Benedict XVI is known to wear slippers which are scarlet red in color. He wears them with white socks.

~Derek Fan, who is known as "The Slipper Man", has made his place in the Guinness Book Of World Records. He wore a pair of dress slippers for twenty-three consecutive years. The twenty-third year was met on June 30, 2007.

People living in Colorado Springs wondered why their rain water

barrel was almost empty every day.

They set up a couple of cameras

and look what they caught on film ~

Absolutely priceless?

Q - How long can a bear take a bath in my rain barrel?
A - As long as he wants to!

Live well, laugh often and love much!

Sasha And The Chihuahua House Guest

Maddie, Sasha's Chihuahua cousin, is visiting for a few weeks.  This Chihuahua thinks she is a kitty cat.  She always comes with cat-a-tude a plenty when she visits.  Poor Sasha is not taking the news this visitor will be here for awhile very well.  Can you tell?
