I get to do Sunday Selfies! Yay!!! This is my first attempt – I forgot to look at the camera. Let me adjust it…
Aha! A speed shot! See how fast I am? Like lightening!! That’s youth!!!
Much better and I must say my whiskers look very nice!!
Hey folks, I know this post is later than when I usually post, but when I looked out the window this morning and saw it was such a beautiful day I was inspired…
I called up my good friend Dezi and said, “Let’s Go Flying!”
She said yes!!
We had a great time!! Let’s do it again, Dezi!!
It’s Sunday Selfie time. Of course and as usual I’m the only one interested in taking selfies! My first one was a little blurry – I was too close to the camera.
PeggySue was more interested in outside than in.
Both Simon and PeggySue decided naps were better than selfies.
And here’s my second attempt – a little better but still a little blurry. Oh well, maybe Simon and PeggySue have the right idea. I’m going to take a nap!
The entire crew is here today (well, minus MerryBelle-she avoids the camera the way she avoids mom. Hmmm, since they’re always together (mom and the camera), maybe its mom she’s avoiding!) We used the Dreamscope app – it made us look really wild!!
It’s a busy few days coming up! Sunday is Selfie Day! Monday is Pirate Day!! Tuesday is the birthday of two very special friends! and Saturday I’m taking Dezi and Raena (Deziz World) flying!! Have a great Caturday!!!

On August 31, the Virginian-Pilot (our local newspaper) reported the following two stories:
The experiment took place at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest where 13 family dogs, mostly golden retrievers and border collies, were trained to sit perfectly still inside an MRI scanner. The dogs listened to a female trainer familiar to the dogs who spoke words of praise that their owners used as well as neutral words which the researchers believed were meaningless to the animals. Each dog heard each word in both a neutral tone and a happy, good-dog tone.
The scans showed that dogs not only understand praise words and but intonation as well. “So dogs not only tell apart what we say and how we say it, but they can also combine the two, for a correct interpretation of what those words really meant,” one of the researchers said. However, a neuroscientist from Emory University cautioned relying on such a small sample.
But we don’t care if the sample was small – it only shows what animals have always known – we are way smarter and cleverer than those pesky bipeds give us credit for!!
Also in the same paper, another story:
From the Sentara Belle Harbour Emergency Department in Suffolk, Virginia (a nearby city to us) – comes the story of two wild turkeys that are visiting the ER everyday – trying to get in!!! Since they don’t know the code to the ER ambulance doors, they’ve been stuck outside. Maybe they’re worried about getting too fat in time for Thanksgiving!!
Sorry no cat stories today – maybe next time!! This is BobbieSue reporting for WTWC News!! See you next time!!
Tomorrow is Friday Fill-In Day!!! Who knows which one of us will be the one answering!!
