Black and White Sunday: 2015

I am having fun looking back. This is 2015. Phone cameras have come a long way since then, or maybe I have just gotten better at taking pictures (this is really grainy, sorry). Have a great Black and White Sunday.

Caturday: Stella’s New Thing

Stella – The Loner

Stells’s new thing lately is to sneak out of her room, whenever the door is left ajar, which it shouldn’t be and hide under my bed across the hall. (To be honest, I know that V thinks she gets lonely in her private master cat suite and leaves the door open for her to explore until, of course, there is a catfight in the hall.) I think Stella thinks it’s funny to go under the bed until another cat comes to check her out and then she freaks out and runs back into her room, hopefully with no other cats trailing behind. Fur does fly around here sometimes. Stella really likes Sofie and Louise, but not Charles, so they are the only other animals that she wants in her space. Ahh the life with a zoo.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: Besties

Sofie & Louise 2012

When it is cold outside, I like to remember warm sunny days to help me get through the frost. I can’t believe this picture was 7 years ago. In the end, if Louise really wants the toy, she will take it away from Sofie in one yank. But she is really kind to Sofie and lets her have things (like a good older sister should). The green carrot is long gone, but the memories are golden.

DogDaz Thanks Our Veterans

I am thankful for the people (and animals) that help keep me safe and free. Today we celebrate our War Veterans. Thank you to all who have sacrificed and continue to serve today.

war dogs

Dedicated on June 10, 2006, the United States War Dogs Memorial, located guarding the gateway to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey, consists of a bronze statue of a kneeling Vietnam War soldier and his dog, set on a black granite base. The memorial was designed by sculptor Bruce Lindsay, Architectural Division Manager at Johnson Atelier in Mercerville, New Jersey. A graduate of Bucknell University, Lindsay’s studio is adjacent to Grounds for Sculpture, the 22-acre sculpture park on the grounds of the former New Jersey State Fair. The U.S. War Dogs Memorial, while directly representing the War Dog Teams of the Vietnam War, honors all our nation’s war dogs and their handlers – past, present and future.

Black and White Sunday: Sketchy Nine

Nine’s behavior has been a bit sketchy lately. Besides spraying everywhere, he has been flying all over the place like a mad man. Definitely, something questionable going on with this Dude.
