Caturday Supplement: Double Kitten Surprise

A few weeks ago I promised some pictures of Autumn’s two kitten charges together. I’m finally delivering on that promise!

Look at the little grey-and-pink paw-pads! They look so nibble-able.

Why doesn’t anyone stick her tongue in MY ear any more? Hmf!

Dog of the Day: Mikasa the Shiba Inu Puppy

Going through old photos that I hadn’t yet posted and found this gem. The reason I hadn’t posted it was because I got over a hundred pictures of Mikasa, most of which were in burst mode, and there were only three that weren’t too blurry to post, and they were buried in bursts. Mikasa was hyper as all get-out! Not too surprising since she was 5 months old.

She has the pose I like to think of as ‘POWER PUPPY’ down pat.

Dog of the Day: Eebee (Isabel) the Bassett Hound

Eeeeeebeeeee! What a great name.

I don’t have an age written down, but I think she has to be a puppy.

Dog of the Day: Unknown Mixed Breed

God, this is a toughie! I’m guessing she’s a puppy, and she really looks like a Pharaoh or Ibizan hound mix but that seems pretty unlikely. Maybe a greyhound or whippet mix?

It’s so much harder to grill people on their dogs when everyone’s wearing masks.

Dog of the Day: Loki the Labrador Retriever American Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Most of the Lokis I’ve seen are either huskies or corgis, both breeds well known for their… well-developed┬ásenses of humor. This pup definitely has some of that. I was eating at an outdoor table at a little restaurant in San Francisco, and he kept coming over to check to see if there was anything new that I’d dropped for him to browse on. And the kid who was there with him, rather younger than Loki, kept having to come over to collect him. Loki seemed quite game to keep it up all day.

He has a very knowing expression, doesn’t he?

Dog of the Day: Baigo the German Shepherd Labrador Retriever Hound Mix

No idea what kind of hound, but it must be a big one, since she is only about 8 months old in this picture.

She’s got a built-in smile.

Dog of the Day: Irish Wolfhound

Another Milwaukee Irish Fest dog for you today. Someone’s loving all the attention!

I miss Milwaukee Irish Fest. Couldn’t go last year, I was interviewing for two jobs that week. And this year wasn’t… exactly festive.

Dog of the Day: Irish Setter Puppy

Got this a couple of years back at Milwaukee Irish Festival. No idea why I didn’t use it then, but I sure like it enough to use it now.

He looks like a bloodhound puppy, doesn’t he? I can only assume that he’ll grow into the ears. And face.

Dog of the Day: Cheerful Samoyed

Samoyeds always seem to be cheerful and dignified, don’t they?

Pretty sure Autumn took these pictures.

Dog of the Day: Marley the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy

I remember Marley. I took some pictures of him a couple years ago, when he was four months old, and he was murder to get non-blurry. This is as close as I came.

Look at the leash. I wonder how many of them he went through in his first year?
