Kicia made me bad suprise on Saturday. When the spring comes she most of time spend outside dring the day. she never left our garden. Always when I call her – she comes. But Saturday evening she didn’t come. She hadn’t been in the garden. I call and look for her more than one hour, it was dark and thunder started. I was near crying, but she didn’t come. I left balcony door open near midnight with thinking – she will come back me. We have had really big rain and thunder. After two hours I slept.
About 5 o’clock in the morning I wake up and see – Kicia sleeps on my legs, wet yet … Such a happy wake up!
Yesterday she spent most time at home and outside she walked close to me…
Scott Adams describes his morning routine, which is focused on creating the comic strip Dilbert. Part of that routine is petting his office cat Sarah. Below is his description of his great pet and their teamwork.
My office cat, Sarah, hears the refrigerator open from the next room and will be waiting for me in her designated spot.
Sarah demands quality time on the rug or she literally won’t let me work. She’ll scream and start ripping my stuff to shreds unless she gets her quota of petting. This part of my routine has not varied in 17 years.
I take Sarah with me to get additional petting while I check blog comments and e-mails. She looks uncomfortable but she’s actually totally relaxed. It’s her favorite petting position.
After I write my blog post, I start the comic-making phase.
Here is a funny story about Cash, the blind colt, from the June edition of the Rolling Dog Ranch newsletter:
We were heading out for afternoon barn chores one day last week when we saw our blind foal Cash mowing the grass in his own unique way. We kind of wondered how the grass was getting clipped so far from the corral panels.
Most horses will stand at the edge of a corral and stick their heads under the bottom rail to eat the nearby grass. Cash, who is completely blind and has never seen other horses do it the “normal” way, figured out another approach. His way definitely has its advantages, as you’ll see in this 40-second video!
And when he’s finished — which can take a while, since he likes to snooze off and on while dining — he just slides himself back under the corral panels.
My neighbour’s dog was after this little guy when he was in her backyard. Since she couldn’t keep him, she brought him to me, knowing I rescue cats. He was only four weeks old and a little sickly. I nursed him back to health and was supposed to find a new home for him, but he pulled at my heartstrings so much that he became a part of the family. Willy is a year old now and such a delight to have.
Until the recent pet food recall, our lives were full with our two rescue dogs — Foxy, a 14-year-old corgi/Sheltie mix, and Bentley, a four-year-old Irish wolfhound/German shepherd mix. But sadly, Bentley became one of the victims of the melamine in the pet food. We were devastated. He was unique in looks and personality, and our house was empty without our 120-pound “talking dog.” We remembered a dog we had seen in a movie, Because of Winn-Dixie, who bore some similarities to Bentley: scruffy hair; big nose; direct brown eyes with eyebrows that stood out; ears that were large, upright, and almost comical; and a personality to match. We did some research, discovered the movie’s dog was a Berger Picard, a breed known in France but still rare in the U.S. But luck was on our side, as we were able to locate one of the very few breeders in North America several states away. She had two litters of pups and agreed to let us purchase one of her male puppies. The Berger Picard is a solidly built, medium-sized breed, 50 to 70 pounds, 21 to 25 inches tall, with upright ears, and a semi-long, harsh overcoat with a fine, dense undercoat. Their natural coat is low maintenance and they are not heavy shedders. The demeanor of the Picard is the breed’s most endearing quality. Despite their independence, they are sweet-natured and loving animals. They are good with children and make wonderful friends. We’ve only had Beldar two weeks but he is already a personable, funny, and loving pup. We hope to train him as a therapy dog so he can work in special education with his human dad.
Here is a great happy ending story about Hank, the three-legged cat who now resides at the Rolling Dog Ranch animal sanctuary. Apparently, Hank knows how to radiate good energy even under dire circumstances. It is a trait that ending up saving his life. Read his story here.
