Here's to Rocky, Hunter and Squirt
First of all, has anyone heard from Jennifer lately? We'll have to email her and see where's she's been.
We've had a lot of new pet arrivals recently. First Shannon's boxer, Rocky, the Adrienne's Hunter (or should I say the Foreman's Hunter). Please keep us updated on their progress with photos and updates.
Stacey stole my topic today. Brett also e-mailed me some photos, so I wanted to include them too, but be sure to check Stacy's topic below, as he has a song contest going on!
My new nickname for Hines (Heinz 57) is Squirt, because what else do you do with a ketchup bottle but squirt it? And compared to Lucy and Charlie, well......he is a little squirt of a dog.
Hines had a grand weekend with Brett and Jeremy, as the photos show. I bet they can't wait to get back from their upcoming vacation to the wilds of North Dakota to start the new family dynamic.
Now, compare these photos to the earlier ones of Hines' first visit (a few topics down), where Hines looked a bit timid and unsure of the situation. Now it seems, he's taken over the house! I love the group shot: Lucy, Charlie and Pearl all look just a TAD jealous as the new arrival gets all of Daddy's attention! It's like "Hey, wait a minute, he's fun to play with and knock over like a Weeble, but he is taking it just a BIT to far!" I also love the one of Charlie and Hines drinking. Notice the two bowls available, but Charlie is nice enough to share with his little brother. And the one of Charlie and Hines is just great too, as is the one of Hines all worn out and comfortable in a lap.
Tidbits: I wake up this morning and let the three muttkateers out into the yard. They weren't coming back inside, so I looked out and saw them in a circle, hovering over something like paparazzi swarming around Paris Hilton. Here it was a turtle, frightened in his little shell. He was alive, so I moved him outside of the fence. I didn't think there was a space big enough around the fence for him to get in.
The cats crack me up. They have several windows to look out of in their apartment, but every morning when I got over to open the door, they run to it so they can look out the pet door. Now mind you, they don't run outside right away, because they wait for their morning treat, which each gets after I clean litter box and fill water and food bowls. It's like they think their must be a new TV show out of that little square of door, because they have a much better view from one of the windows. Do they know each provides the SAME view into the same yard? The pet door has the worst view, as it's low to the ground, but they both have to mush their faces against in first thing.
What quirks do your pets have that make you shake your head and wonder?
