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.
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.
I was on my way to a get-together (my first in AGES!) with fellow employees at my new workplace, so I didn’t have time to get this pup’s age, nor did I find out whether he was named after the Beatles song, as a certain corgi of the same name was. I did, however, get kisses and pictures, so it’s all good.
Too many pictures for hovertext and captions, but I will say that Jojo really reminds me of the robotic Daggit named ‘Muffit II‘, from the original Battlestar Galactica.
I took some pictures of Chance in an airport just after Christmas of 2016 — you know, back when people still traveled the world. He had been adopted on Christmas day! Not sure how that happened, but it sounds like a heck of a present for both sides.
This is from a Christmas party a few years back, where kids and dogs got to sit in Santa’s lap and ask for presents and petting. I think we could all use a little extra love this year, especially those of us who didn’t exactly get to have a Christmas.
