You have wonderful pets! Each is beautiful and interesting in its own way. I am sure everyone has an absolutely individual character and special habits. In my life I have not yet seen a single animal that behaves 100% identical to the way another animal behaves.

You are correct. :thumb_up: Bojo's brother Brutus is totally different; both in his looks and demeanor.

His eye shows a pretty day in McCall, Idaho's Ponderosa Park.

Speaking of pets now, well I've been working on a book for just about two years now and it consists of the most outlandish, off the wall and borderline crazy ads that you can imagine; and some you can't imagine, nevertheless where the ads themselves may have some comedic value in and of themselves I believe the true humor rests with the replies that I've received from some of my ads.
The following ad I posted in the Pasadena, San Marino and Altadena areas some time ago, it's a lost and found ad. Lost 4' 9" Caiman named smiley.
I am asking the public to please be on the look-out for my missing guard dog / gator named Smiley as he seems to have escaped my back yard once again and should should anyone see him to please notify the police immediately as they have already been advised of the situation and at this time are seeking information about his whereabouts NOTE: If you spot him do not approach it because he will immediately bite you and also if you have any cats or dogs keep those away from him as well, smiley is very fond of eating cats.
Now I'm certain you can imagine the uproar this caused in the community LOL and if anyone should ask I will post some of the replies I received from the public but for now I'm only going to tell you about one of the replies I got, I received this email after the ad had been running for about four days. This is the Pasadena police department and we are giving you just 24 hours to post a retraction of this ad or you are going to face numerous charges such as, well they named off a good handful of penal codes.
So I thought about it for a few hours and then posted this retraction. RE: The missing Caiman, Thank you all of you who saw my ad and were keeping your eyes open for my Smiley for me moreover I really appreciate all of the Emails I received
(LOL, no one except those of you reading this right now knows how much I appreciate those Emails) I then went on to say that I was so very sorry I frightened so many people with my lost and found ad but that I was very happy to report that my smiley was never missing after all as it was under my house the whole time, then also stating the fact that I have discovered that my smiley is a female and not a male so I had hence forth re-named it Shirley. where I finished of my retraction saying that now all I had to do was figure out how to keep 11 small cat eating Caiman from escaping my yard but promising to notify the police the second that happens, should it happen.
I held my breath and crossed my fingers and to date I have not heard from the Pasadena PD nor the FBI.
Good day
Oh by the way I do have a cat that I named Rex and a German Sheppard that I call Puff
I've come to the conclusion that when i said i wanted to be somebody when i grew up i probably should have been more specific

Not a bad question at all. For being brothers, they look quite different and their personalities are unique. Their dad was a parti Poodle and mom was a black Labrador Retriever. Our daughter found them out of desire to train the boys for use at schools and nursing homes. Originally they came from a breeder in South Dakota. :thumb_up:

My son was preparing some garden today; he came in the back door and took off his shoe! what's wrong? My wife asked him!
He said; I think I stepped in Magic's Poo; It's on the bottom of my shoe! Oh; and it stuck just like glue! :mrgreen: 👞 💩
