A Lovely Bulldog

When I wrote my daughter about the show I judged last weekend, I told her I judged a champion bulldog bitch with profound quality. As I watched her gait away from me and back I said to my self, Honey, unless something else comes in my ring today that knocks my socks off, you're are my number one in the non-sporting group. I judged that group and she was my number one no question. She then went on to win best in show over 1200 dogs and with a different judge. Kathy replied, only a true dog lover would describe her as a "lovely" bulldog.

More from Chancey the Cat

At last all the heavy machinery is off from his hind leg. The pins are still in and I think will always be, but he has resigned himself to his pen where he must be to keep him quiet. This once feral cat is indeed lucky he came into the path of daughter. By the way, it is illegal to feed a feral cat in Florida. Oh well, so much for laws that would have her watch the cat die of starvation before her eyes. In the future, however, she says she will trap them and take them to the shelter where they will be put down. It's better than for them to starve, spread disease and continue to multiply.

A Book to Keep you Up Nights

Serena by Ron Rash is that kind of book. Serena is a cunning, scheming woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. The momementem builds through the story and crashes under its possibilities for ending. Make your own endings and see how close you come to the true ending. Don 't cheat. No reading the ending first.

My Daughter's Cat, Chancey

Chancy, an indoor cat, had a terrible mangled leg from we don't know what. Vet said they don't see anything that bad except for a cat hit by a car. With high tech they put pins in his leg and a heavy bandage. Chancey was a feral cat that she tamed and now he is her baby...a very loving cat. She has no children and her husband died the first of the year. Of course Chancy doesn't like the bandage and except for when he is made asleep with pain med, chews at it. This is all so stressful for Kathy. I know all you dog lovers would feel as she does if he was your dog and I ask that you keep her in your thoughts for the next many weeks it will take to heal his leg, if that can even happen.
