A New Pet

Plinky said, “Pick a new pet to take home for free.” Great Pyre­nees There’s no such thing as a free pet, as any respon­si­ble pet own­er knows! Beyond the costs of hous­ing and feed­ing the ani­mal, you have to pro­vide for health care such as pre­ven­tive med­ica­tion for heart­worms and oth­er par­a­sites (for dogs and cats, […]

Meow vs. Arf

Live­jour­nal’s Writer’s Block ques­tion of the day is, “Cats or dogs– which do you pre­fer, and why?” I don’t pre­fer one over the oth­er.

She’s already in geo-love after just a few days, say­ing she’d like to live there. Her hosts seem like Very Good Peo­ple, and I hope to meet them when they come to […]

Silly Beast
