Caturday Supplement: Shelia the Tabby-Cat

Another kitty picture from Autumn. Such delicate paw-placement and tail-curlage.

Dog of the Day: Joker the Siberian Husky Puppy

I got some pictures of Joker (3 months old) a year and a half ago. It was a little dark, so they didn’t come out so great, but… well… still pretty cute.

This was 2019 Halloween. I think Joker might have been dressed up as an angel. An ironic juxtaposition.

I wonder if the mascara was part of the costume.

Double Dog Day: Brat-Dog and Nubbin

You’ll just have to take my word that ‘Nubbin’ had a tailstub. But I’m pretty sure you can tell that ‘Brat-Dog’ is well worthy of his name.

In other news, I KNEW the extra 20 pounds I put on during COVID would come in handy: I am fat enough to qualify for the vaccine in San Francisco! OH MY GOD I’M GOING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A REAL VACATION SOON! (Well. In a few weeks. After my second dose of vaccine. But still. The end of this hell of isolation and depression is in sight!) If this really materializes, I will take lots of pictures of whatever cute wildlife I find while on vacation and share them here, I promise.

Plus maybe I’ll be able to actually lose a little weight, now that I can go jogging and hiking outside without significant risk of infecting random strangers. (I tried jogging with a mask on but stopped when the purple spots threatened to come together into one big purple blackout. Nope.) I know, I know, losing weight is more about diet than it is about exercise, but I’m already on a fairly strict diet (which has stopped my weight gain) so hopefully this will nudge me into the ‘loss’ column for a while.

Caturday Supplement: Big Boy Buddha

Autumn just sent me a passel of adorable kitties for my pleasure and your Caturday supplementation. I’m not likely to be able to get more soon, so I’m going to spread them across a few weeks. This first one is of ‘Big Boy Buddha’, enjoying an evening’s nap.

Dog of the Day: Sandy Corgi

Someone went gallumphing across the sand. Bet she tracked a pile of sand onto someone’s kitchen floor!

I’m thinking of doing a run down to SoCal once I’m vaccinated, so I can take a bunch of dog beach pictures.

Double Dog Day: Corgi-Corgi Surprise

Compare and contrast these two expressions.

The back one has three of the four marks of an exceptionally ridiculous corgi: two different color eyes, a fluffy coat, and a tail. Plus that patented grin.

Dog of the Day: Italian Greyhound Chihuahua Mix

I am really eager for my vaccination. NEED MORE DOG PICTURES. I do kind of like this one, though. Even if I can’t think of hovertext for it for the life of me.

Dog of the Day: Brooklyn the Basenji

Huh! Looks like we’re had two different dogs named Brooklyn, although the last one was a Yorkie whose name got shortened to “Brookie”. This one is a girl, only a year old when I took the pictures.
