Off to College

Remember Benji the pup? His interview by Andy and Dougy and their interview by Benji was a well-received feature of this blog some months back. Now, Benji is mostly grown up and starting education for a new job as therapy dog! How exciting this is! To see what he looks like now, click on the link at the end of this posting. There’s also a puppy photo of Benji for comparison.

Post 1113: Dougy finds “it”, whatever “it” is…

One has to be careful not to leave anything out that a cat might find interesting. That is to say, if you value it, stow it! Likewise, one has to be careful not to leave anything out that a kitty boy might play with and chew, something that isn’t good for the cat and might harm him. Today, it was a dropped wrapped hard candy. I didn’t find it, but Dougy did!

I noticed Dougy playing with something behind the glider.

What’s that!? Dougy bats it with increased intensity.

Better than a Birbug? I doubt it, bit it had Dougy's attention, all right!

I hate to stop Dougy's play....

Of course, it took no time at all for Andy to stop by, knock over waste paper basket, and find the candy! I have to take it away from him, too.
