Caturday Supplement: Adoptable Kitty

I was wandering through Berkeley last weekend and I ran across a group who was looking for kitty parents.


All the kitties were surprisingly friendly. A lot of the time, cats who are dragged out into the sun tend to cower, at least a little bit.

I love those eyes.

Red Dog of the Day: Tidus the Corgi

There is a bit of funny graffiti on the sidewalk not far from my home. Tidus seems to like it almost as much as I do.

I am actually not sure, but I think that graffiti is younger than Tidus.

Baggie-Dog of the Day: Dragon the Pomeranian

Dragon (2) had absolutely no problems cuddling up in his bag as long as he got a lot of attention from passing strangers.

Pomeranian Head Sticking Out Of Shoulder Bag

I was out walking with a friend of mine, and she suddenly stopped and pointed and said ‘Dog!’

She doesn’t even like dogs. But she knows I do.

I gather Dragon goes to work like this quite often.

Dog of the Day: Grumpy Miniature Poodle

This little pup is awfully grouchy for a poodle. He wouldn’t even let me near!

My Twitter account seems to be having some issues… pictures aren’t uploading properly. I’ll have to try messing around with it some more later.

That little snarl may be the most adorable expression I’ve seen in weeks.

You have to love the suit, though.

Dog of the Day: Riley the Unabashed Pembroke Welsh Corgi Puppy

Riley (6 months old) does NOT care about shame, or cones for that matter. Riley cares about treats, people, and dogs, and treats. And did I mention treats?

Oh, and he has an instagram: @rileybutterscorgi

Quick! Go check it out! It will make your life a little brighter.

Typical corgi: greeting every person and dog that goes by.

You can see exactly how much he’s bothered by the cone.

Sunday Switchup: Exploratorium Sculpture

All right. Things are working weirdly, but they’re working. And well enough that I don’t feel compelled to chase down the last few little bits of whackiness.

Speaking of whackiness, I bought season tickets to the Exploratorium After Dark series. Some neat adults-only science stuff every Thursday evening, and rather than feeling like I have to spend three hours there and see everything in order to get my money’s worth, I can just drop by and poke around for half an hour if I want.

Plus there are things there that look really neat at night.

If that’s a model of a molecule, I freely admit that I have no idea what it is.

Site News

UNNNNGGGHH. The site was down for OVER TWO DAYS. And of that time, I was working on trying to fix it for about … 35 hours. I wasn’t even on any strong pain killers!

All of this just to upgrade from Mac OS X 10.10 to macOS 10.13. Apple RAIDs and incompatible server versions and disallowed kexts, oh my.

The good news is, we appear to be back up and running, and won’t have to go through anything like this again for a while. After all, the last time was in 2012.

Dog of the Day: Chihuahua

Welp. That upgrade attempt didn’t go well. Going to have to try again tomorrow.

In the mean time, say hello to this gentleman. I don’t know his name but he seems very refined to me.

Dapper! Look at that little bow tie.

Yup. He’s a dapper little lens-licker.

Dog of the Day: Not Really Sure

Some site news: I am taking advantage of some recovery-from-surgery time to upgrade the DoSF server. While high on codeine. Therefore, there’s a fair chance that the site might be down some or all of tomorrow.

Now, on to the dog! I don’t know who or what she is, but isn’t she pretty?

Large White Dog

I am pretty sure she was either blind or deaf. (Many white dogs are one or both.)

White Dog Jumping For Cheese Treat

I seem to vaguely recall blind. But whichever it was sure didn’t seem to keep her from her cheese puffs.

Dog of the Day: Labrador Retriever Mix

Very timid pup. Adorable, though.

Yellow Labrador Retriever Mix

Just the tiniest little bit of ear-flop. Perfect!
