Of course if they had been born when they should have been they would almost be three months old. ;-)

They are celebrating by having a bath. ;-p

Yeah. Long story...the short version? Jackson got into the attic and got trapped over our bedroom. He made a hole in the ceiling in the bathroom as he was floundering around trying to find his way out. (He didn't fall all the way through.) It took us at least 45 minutes to get him out of the attic. There was fiberglass insulation flying all over the place.

btw: dogs don't want to be lowered through a twelve inch by twelve inch access panel.

Since my flickr page seems to be all dog pictures....I thought I'd dog up my LJ as well. I can't seem to be bothered to do a proper post today so you will have to just make do with a photo of a lazy dog.....

For those playing along, this is Zoe. She picked us as her new people not that long ago. (She's named Zoe because she is obviously a Browncoat.)

The dogs

[profile] killimengri wanted to see the alrescate pack. I haven't a picture of all five of them at once so here is a mosaic.

Top: Zoe, Jackson, Honey
Bottom: Jackson & Brandy, Brandy, Honey & Zoe, Inigo

I didn't have a single picture of Brandy alone so she had to have a group shot. Inigo's picture doesn't really show it well but he may be the biggest of the five. He and Honey stand tall and weigh about 70 pounds. I think Zoe is the smallest....she is probably 30 or 40 pounds.

I just want to let you know that the fuzzy sweetie has found a home. One of my aunt's co-workers took him in.

Huzzah!

For [profile] mysterylady36

This is one of the chipmunks that has been frolicking in my front yard. I was afraid the little fellows had abandoned the area because Zoe had killed one. (I assume it was Zoe...she has been getting out lately.)

I was quite pleased to see this little guy stuffing his face yesterday. I couldn't get too close and he would never "pose" so I could get his stripes but since I promised [profile] mysterylady36 a picture I thought this would do. Doesn't he remind you of Marlon Brando?

Puppy update: My uncle may have found the big guy a home. Fingers crossed!

So it's an "al rescate" morning!

Driving in to work this morning I spotted a small turtle in the road. I stopped and set the little guy off the road. I didn't get very far before I spotted another small turtle. So I stopped and moved him too. I was feeling pretty good about my turtle rescue when I went around a corner and saw a fluffy white puppy next to the road. He didn't look like he had a collar and he was on a part of the road where he was bound to get hit. So I pulled over and called to him. He came right to me and I have brought him to work with me. He's very sweet and he needs a home. I think he might be a Pyrenees as he has those big dew claws. He's much cuter than he looks in this picture.

He's very, very sweet and is sleeping at my feet right now. I have five big dogs and cannot keep him. Does anyone want a puppy?

And I'm serious when I say I can't keep him. If I don't find a home for him today he has to go to the shelter.

From the AKC site:
Temperament
Character and temperament are of utmost importance. In nature, the Great Pyrenees is confident, gentle, and affectionate. While territorial and protective of his flock or family when necessary, his general demeanor is one of quiet composure, both patient and tolerant. He is strong willed, independent and somewhat reserved, yet attentive, fearless and loyal to his charges both human and animal.

"Post the weirdest photo/picture/animation/cartoon that's on your hard drive. Let's try to keep it sane, though - nothing X-rated, please. Do not go find an image on the 'net to post it here - this should already exist on your drive!"

I don't know where this started but here is a weird picture that is on my computer (that I took) that isn't obscene. Well at least I don't think it is...[profile] shadiehawke and [profile] antof9 might disagree with me.

So, I should know better than to click a CNN.com article with a title whose main components are 'python' and 'alligator' but I suppose I'll never learn. The picture that accompanies the article is gruesome. Very gruesome. Bleck. If you can stomach it this is an interesting story about nonnative species in the Everglades. I will warn you that it is not for the weak. If you can't sleep after you see that picture don't blame me....
