We Call It Puppy Love

C’mon, you’ve gotta love puppies! (Even mud puppies? Well, all right…)

Watch the puppy who has a whole roomful of toys strewn all over the floor–but only wants the one he can’t reach. We know some people like that, don’t we?

Last Man Standing… Is the Dog

Cats are famous for getting underfoot and tripping people; but as you’ll see from this video, dogs, too, possess that gift. (I keep wanting to liken this to certain judo techniques, but I don’t know if anybody here goes in for that.)

Dog Marooned on Bed

The human’s bedroom is such a shambles that the dog can’t summon up the courage to get down from the bed. I mean, all this woman didn’t do was tear up a bunch of toilet paper and rip open the pillows. Such an example to set for her dog!

Dogs Get Confused

I love dogs. They’ve got to make the best of a world designed by and for humans, and it gets confusing! Stuffed animals–what the hell, you mean they aren’t real? Plus there’s a pineapple lurking over yonder… you’ll see what I mean.

Scaredy-Cats

Cats get spooked by the darnedest things. Banana peels, a bunny, stuffed toys, toasters–our Robbie is (I blush to say it) afraid of shoelaces… and my writer’s chair.

We laugh at their reactions; but out there in Natureland, those backward leaps might save a cat’s life. After all, they’ve only got nine of them.

Chicken-Hearted Dogs

The dogs in this video are terrified… of cats! Fie and for shame. Come to think of it, a chicken would probably have more gumption than most of these dogs.

But cats do seem to know which dogs they can pick on and which dogs’ll give them what-for if they try.

Naughty Cats

My, there are a lot of naughty cats out there! A long with a lot of silly humans who are really just asking for it.

Robbie wouldn’t let me make the bed today; but at least she doesn’t knock things off shelves just to see them fall.

Cats Helps Make the Bed

Our little Robbie must be feeling better, because lately she’s decided to get involved when I make the bed. She jumps onto the bed and hunkers down on whatever major wrinkles I’m trying to straighten out. She doesn’t go all combative, like this cat does; but boy! is she stubborn.

The Squirrel Wants to Play

If you watch squirrels in your yard, you know how playful they are. A broken twig will serve as a toy, if there’s no other squirrel to play with.

Here’s a pet squirrel pulling out all the stops to get the family cat to play tag with him. I don’t think the cat is up to it.

Have You Brushed Your Squirrel Today?

You’d think squirrels would make good pets. They’re quick to learn, they’re friendly–what’s not to like?

Except that, really, the squirrels around here seem perfectly happy outside and it doesn’t take much effort to make friends with them. They’ll eat out of your hand. I don’t know if they’ll ever sit on your lap… unless they’re living in your home.

I just wish they wouldn’t chew the wires on our cars.
