    So apparently my beagle is also part boxer. She couldn't get the box off but figured out that if she shook her head she could get more crackers. Shake shake crunch crunch crunch repeat....

    My wife and daughter are all-in on Astro, here. Yea or nay? I prefer larger dogs (our last was a greyhound), but this would admittedly suit our current lifestyle better than another grey.

    Sorry to hear it, @KenElPescadoPelado :(.

    As some of you know, Bruiser checked out on Thursday as well. To quote the great emotional minimalist Kenny Powers, it made me super, super sad.

    Yesterday the hub took our shaggy furball maltipoo to the groomers. That's him sporting his typical look, which I think suits him:


    Unbeknownst to me, the hub made a special request to the groomers. And this is how he came home:


    I can't even.

    So we have two new additions. Meet Rocket and Rosita. I wanted to make him Stewart but was over ridden.

    In December and then early February I lost two of my Kats. Snicket was an FIV Alley Kat that I found in Brooklyn in 2005 who we were advised to destroy but I refused. He lived a great life and made it to 13 until cancer ravaged his body. He was my sons best friend from the day of birth - Snicket paid us back 100-fold by the way he helped raise that kid, I've never seen a cat/child bond like it.

    In February my kitty from grad school, Cassius-Kat (can you tell I'm a Herriman fan?), passed. A friend found him in the mountains near Asheville in 2000 and asked "If I drive this cat I found to you in Florida will you take him?" I thought he was joking but two weeks later he showed up. Cassius had a stroke 18 months back and again I refused to put him to sleep. He rebounded well but suddenly fell ill and since he wasn't in pain and he hated the vet I took him home and held him until he passed. I'm kind of haunted as to whether this was right but his last thoughts were of him being hugged by the only human he loved - he was anxiety riddled but was the most affectionate cat I've every bonded to. I get anxiety attacks and night terrors and the second one would come on he'd jump on my chest, get his head below my chin and purr. He was a beautiful soul.

    Anyway, the photo - I was heartbroken. I told my family we'd get no more cats and just let those still with us remain but I couldn't deal with this hurt again anytime soon. Then I walk past the shelter near my office and see the same cat I've been seeing for the past five months. I walk in and I find out he's FIV positive and noone will take him. I opened the cage and the photo you see is of him after he leapt in my arms. I actually started tearing up and knew this cat needed me and I needed him at that moment. So yeah, 17 lbs with a breathing issue and FIV I adopted Pumpkin on the spot. He's on a diet and my son is in love with him. He still has a lot of the alley in him - he's almost past the nipping part but loves to be loved and purrs up a storm, he's a rad Kat and is going to have a great home for a long time to come.

    -fin-
    -happy ending-

    This is my big head dog. His name is Dozer. He does not run, or bike, or swim. He likes blanked. And treats. He's kind of awesome.
