I'm not in a particularly cat-friendly neighborhood at present; there are a large number of extremely territorical kitties in my vacinity, who don't take kindly to newcomers.

My parents used to live on a compound in Indonesia, where guard dogs were prized pets. One of the neighbours had one of those big black dogs (not a Rottweiler, the fatter version, what are they called?) which had allegedly mated with a neighbouring golden retreiver. People queued up for a puppy before they were even born. Only it turned out that the father was a chihuahua. Needless to say the puppies weren't great big guard dogs.

No, I have no idea about the logistics involved. Maybe it borrowed a stepladder?

LOL - my MIL had a dog we swore was a retriever mix with a daschund. We never could figure the logistics involved - perhaps female retrievers are very accommodating?

Fatter than a Rottweiler? Hmm. Dunno. The Rotties next door were pretty big dogs - are you sure you aren't thinking of Dobermans? They are the skinny pointy-eared ones. Rottweilers are very solid, muscular dogs. My neighbor's kids used to ride theirs.


And I love you, I love you, I love you.

I'll read your post, Diri.

Both out dogs are muttleys. When people ask what kind of dog our large wooly one is, I ususally say purebred heart. Photos of them here:

I need to add photos of Jonesy too.

Siobhan, you have a Glencroft! The dollhouse the bunny is in. I love that house when it's all done out and it's on my next to get list.

I just love that house, Siobhan. As soon as I have room for one I'm going to buy it. There are a few on eBay for sell, but this one is just wow on the exterior. http://cgi.ebay.com/Finished-Dollhouse-Kit-Handcrafted-English-Mansion_W0QQitemZ110117958105QQihZ001QQcategoryZ2445QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem They've really done it up. Mine will have to wait for awhile before I buy it, because I have another tudor cottage to build before this one. It's a one room cottage with a loft bedroom. I'm thinking of it's interior as a cross between the woodland cottage in Sleeping Beauty and Hagrid's Hut.

I had the worst coca-cola tonight. I'm not much of a fan to begin with, but I was at a banquet tonight with a semi-open bar and they watered down the sodas. Quite nasty so I stuck with water most of the night.

I've still got a half-finished dolls house too. Son and I have decided to turn it into a shop, and we've got all the furniture, but it still needs decorating inside, and it needs a roof.

AMC, I so know what you're talking about. All animals know I'm a pushover. Even the most stuck up, unfriendly animals love me. I have heard the phrase, "Wow, (insert animals name) usually doesn't like anybody" sooooo many times in my life.

Myf, don't come to my house. All my silly dogs do is bark...it's a bad Pomeranian trait. We've tried breaking them of it...Squeaky is hopeless.

There's a female husky down the street that has the hots for Pippin. I think any puppies would be so adorable, but the logistics give me a headache.

Myf, have you seen this? It's in bits, but you can follow the chain by clicking the scenes in order.

It's a bit of a revelation, but it's also pretty frigging heartbreaking.

Hi all,
I just wanted to insert a picture of my puppy here, but I don't know how to do it - can someone explain in an idiot-proof way how to do it - I have the photo saved on my laptop - does it already have to be online somewhere like on Yahoo pictures or something.
Hope ye're all well,
GIMU...

Yes - it has to be somewhere on the internet, not on your PC (unless your PC is also a dedicated internet server, which I doubt). You can get a free aboout at Shutterfly or other photo-hosting services and upload your photo. When you view your photo, left mouse click to get the address and bingo! That's the URL you use here to view it.



And I love you, I love you, I love you.

Lucky's bootShe is so active - she just loves to chew everything she is not supposed to. These boots are now hers - they didn't fit the owner too well anyway, but they could have been given away to charity as they are a pretty decent pair of working boots, but anyway - Lucky has decided they are hers.
Cutie

Hopefully above are links to pictures of my crazy puppy - she is so cute here - pictures were taken 2weeks ago - even since then she has changed and grown a lot. She has really big paws which someone told us means she will be really big. Her dad is a monster of a dog so maybe she will...
editing post to create a link that actually works... - think it does now... I'm learning a lot this evening.

Me too.

If the pictures aren't too big, you can show them here: just put the address of the individual pictures (should end in a .jpg or another image format) like this: eg <img>www.myphoto.com/lucky.jpg</img> (but with square [ brackets instead of pointy).

See if that works!

No, Diri, I haven't seen it yet, but I have read a transcript. I'll watch it tonight, along with the first episode of Kingdom, his new series.

Thanks everybody. Terry came home on Friday. He's doing much better, except that his appetite hasn't returned. So I spent most of the day having snacks and trying to tempt him to have some with me. He ended up eating rather odd things, but it beats not eating.

He's getting around much better than we thought he might--we have a tri-level, so stairs no matter where you want to be.

He's ready to get out of the house, but he really can't go very far. Unfortunately, both our cars are low to the ground and hard to get in. I've been telling him that for years--whenever I have trouble with my back I hate both those cars. So Sarah came over with the Explorer and took him to the store. And we're trading cars for the week. He should be able to manage one of our cars by the end of the week--at least I hope so.

Anyway, I can't believe it's almost May. I'll be so glad when it's July and we have both the movie and the book.

Glad to hear Terry's home; I'm sure his appetite will come back soon. I think anytime a person's digestive tract is messed with, it decreses the appetite. After my last surgery it took weeks until my tummy wanted food again, and that was just a tonsillectomy.

I hope Seattle is getting a little of the sunshine that's come our way lately. It's good for the spirit. Sometimes you have to feed the soul before you can feed the body.

Eeyore, sometimes liquids are better tolerated by sick people and you can get some very nutrient-rich drinks. After my knee surgery I lived on strawberry Kefir, which is essentially a liquid yourt. It's very calorie-dense but easy to swallow - tastes like a milk-shake but better for you. Yogurt products are also good after surgery because they help restore the natural tummy flora and fauna that get wiped out by antibiotics.

I'm glad you can switch cars! Don't go too fast with returning the Explorer, I'm sure your daughter is happy to help out.


And I love you, I love you, I love you.

Here you can get things like Complan, they're specifically designed for people who don't eat well.

I'm glad Terry is home, Eeyore!

Hi all - well I gave the picture thing another go (above) - I think it is working now. I don't know what happened before.
Eeyore - thats great about Terry - all the best with his recovery now. He will get his appetite back - I know my friends dad had the same problem and he started back eating the weirdest of things. I reckon his body will soon start to ask for what it needs - hope so!

I don't know if any of you have ever heard of 84 Lumber Company, but it's an internationally known company in the building industry and a local corporation. The guy who owns and started it, Joe Hardy, is the only real local celebrity we have, and also a multi-millionaire (maybe close to billionaire). Anyway, he's getting married at the age of 84 to a 22 year old girl. Of course, she loves him for himself and not marrying him for his money. He does like them young. About 10 years ago he married another twenty-something local girl, had two kids to her, and then divorced her. Rumor has it the divorce was the result of him getting her younger sister pregnant. Man, too bad I'm too old for him or I could get a chunk of that money, err..I mean love.

Yes, that ... love certainly would be tempting, Jo! (Never heard of the company, BTW).

Lucky is very cute, Gimu! It's sad that puppies have to grow up into dogs - pups are much cuter.

No it isn't! Older dogs may not be as completely "cute" as puppies but they are even more loveable and sweet. When I adopted my Ursa I wanted a full-grown dog because they're so much easier to live with. Turn out we got her at 4 months so she was still puppyish and I had to live through her shoe-chewing phase - eeek, she liked my Italian leather work shoes - but she's been a charming companion for 15 years now and I've never wanted any "puppy" to replace her.

That said - Lucky is darling! And I love the choice of a red collar to go with her black and whiteness. Very chic.


And I love you, I love you, I love you.
