Black and White Sunday: Sun Day

Why black dogs lie in the hot sun, I will never understand. But at least Louise found some nice cool dirt.

Happy Black and White Sunday!

Caturday: If I Fits….

I know this is Mom’s side table, but it looked like a box to me.

If I fits, I sits

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Memorial Day ’21: Soldier Dogs – Our 4-Legged Heros

Today in the United States we observe Memorial Day honoring our fallen heroes from all our wars. (Even one war is too many, I think.)

I am reposting this story from 2012 on Soldier Dogs. Those wonderful animals who were selected to serve our country along side our soldiers and performed, and still perform, an invaluable service to our nation.

From FastCompany:

These are some images from the book Soldier Dogs: The Four-Legged Heros of Iraq and Afghanistan and a quote:

Military Working Dogs play a crucial part in America’s armed services. The best known “Soldier Dog,” Cairo, put crucial canine skills to work in the SEAL Team Six operation that killed Osama Bin Laden. Other Military Working Dogs serve as everything from bomb sniffers to troop companions to search and rescue dogs (and also serve in darker roles, such as duty at Guantanamo Bay). Their handlers and trainers, devoted dog lovers down to a man, form an unusually close-knit fraternity within the military.

Dogs are not only our best friends, they are an incredible asset to our safety forces. Thank you to all the handlers and animals that keep us safe around the world.  – DogDaz

Caturday: Not So Innocent

They may look innocent, but this was just a moment between catfighting. I assume Nine started because he usually does. Mini will be calmly sleeping on the top platform, and big brother will come screaming up the sides and attack her. Mini does start sometimes, but usually, it’s him. Thankfully, blood is rarely shed with these two.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Just Another Wednesday: Pilling

Mornings start out with 4 pills for Sofie and 1 for Louise.

Then at dinner, Sofie gets another 3, and now Charles gets 1.

On the alternate days, Louise gets 2 for breakfast, Sofie gets 4, and Charles gets 1.

It has gotten more and more complicated at the Zoo as we all age. The dogs are now 10,11, and 12.

Oh and that doesn’t include the monthly Heartworm or Flea stuff.

Thank goodness, only Noel, the Christmas Cat who is 14, gets something in the morning, and the other 3 cats are good, for now.

Does your human give you medicine? How do they do it (or maybe they do it so well you just don’t know)?

Monday Mischief: Was It Nagini?

For some reason, Mommy would not let us play with our new friend that came slithering into the yard to help us plant the tomatoes. We are not sure why, but Mom made us all go inside until the Pantherophis obsoletus passed through. I think she said it had something to do with some woman named, Nagini. Have you ever met her? Mom said she might eat Charles. I said, “then maybe he should stay outside.” Mom put me in time out. What did I do? – Sofie Bear

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Preening Mom

I don’t mind that Noel has decided that sleeping pretty much all day and all night on my bed is now her life. But, can anyone tell me why she has to eat my hair when I get into bed?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!
