    Well you know what they say: "even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes".

    Glad Simon continues to do ok.

    Rosie was our lizard chaser, but she could catch them. We had lots of tailless lizards on our patio. No lizards up here though.

    Doxie- Thank you for the Simon update. Henry may have had that burst of speed and as MRD posted blind squirrel found a nut.

    Waldo went through a choking/gagging thing last night off and on for about 45 min.. We could not figure out what was wrong. We tried to get him to drink something and then try to eat something which he then yakked up. Everytime I would think it was over, he'd start again. This was around 10 last night. As I'm debating on calling the vet, he went to sleep and started snoring and everything is fine this morning.

    MRD If he's not doing it anymore, I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts again. Knowing your phobia, I hate to suggest he could have eaten or been playing with a T-O-A-D. (OH, and you do have lizards, just not many of the green kind you see in Florida)
    Doxie, I'm glad Simon is still enjoying his old age I think Henry is just smart. He probably figured out that if he sat there long enough with his mouth open, a lizard might try to hide in there

    I'm not sure the new kitty's name is permanant--he's not really much of a rabble rouser, so far. But, it might be his 'real' name--I'm tending to call him "Spot" or 'Spottycat" at least. If he doesn't rename himself soon, he's stuck.

    Today is Bogie's birthday. Bad mom, I forgot. Need to go to the store now. He is 10 years old and it was right about at this time of day that Rosie started whelping. That is an experience I have NO desire to repeat.

    But my boy is 10 years old and going strong.

    Happy birthday, Bogie; here's something for you.

    I'm starting to think Spot might be more of a Ringo; I'll get it ironed out soon

    I just got the call that my dog Kenzie died last night. She has had gone missing after dinner yesterday and my stepmom just found her body a couple of hours ago. She had stuck her head in a pipe over on the cow farm across from us and couldn't get it out. Somehow she broke her neck trying to get out.

    I've never lost a pet like this before and I just can't wrap my head around it. She was only 3 years old.
