For some reason, our diarrhea dog and our skunk-friendly cat make me certain I will never get another pet… I do understand pet people who do not want children, because I am a children person who has no patience for pets.

If kitty doesn’t want his tail pulled, then he shouldn’t wave it in baby’s face.

Captured: New York City from Above
Great pictures. I have lots of New York memories with my family and grandparents.
Dogs’ Family Status Depends on Family’s Locale
I always find this topic funny. Our dog is a dog, and our cat is a cat (although my daughter treats the cat like a baby sometimes). I think the main reason our pets are treated as pets is because we added them to our home POST-the-birth-of-children.
Why do i have Subtitles

Early one morning, I woke to find our cat watching the moon on the river. This picture does not do it justice because the flash shows the inside which was dark, but the outside was truly breathtaking. No wonder Pippin loved staring at it.
(I took several pics and combined two to get the best idea.)
Pippin (will be 4 in March)
Gem (will be 11 in February)

I wish more people treated their children as well as Cesar Millan treats dogs. When I catch an episode of The Dog Whisperer, I am always impressed with his passion and compassion for dogs.
In a recent show, Cesar Millan was teaching an older gentleman how to take care of his dog. The older man had a cane and Cesar demonstrated and explained the following,
“You become a shepherd. The shepherds don’t use the stick to hit, [nor] to hurt the animals. The shepherd uses the stick to create a boundary, to create a line to move forward. See the difference…”

Dog gets trapped in invisible force field
Kind of sad, really. It reminds me of first-time obedience child rearing, blanket training, blind obedience, and “father knows best” parenting, etc.

Why You Should NEVER EVER Sleep Where Your Cat Sleeps
I just realized (with a sinking feeling) that my daughter has a magnetic white board touching the side of her bed and the cat loves to sleep there. I just moved the white board.
Our cat also likes to sleep curled up next to the stereo/dvd/vcr/satellite cabinet.

In an episode of The Dog Whisperer, a young couple with a new baby was having a hard time with one of their dogs acting up around the baby. The young mother said, “If I try to let her [the baby] cry it out, he [the dog] cries louder.” Hmmm…. Interesting when a dog has more sense than a new parent.

A note to my feed readers:
I just replaced my Christmas header with a winter theme. Snowshoeing, sliding, skating, snowmobiling, shoveling, igloo, cookout fires, bumpy road for next 12 km sign, (left out the snowman pics)… The pictures are from as far back as 1978 of my brother and me and my collie dog. That’s me in the red coat skating on the frozen river. Most of the pictures are of my family during the past few years.
