We lost three pets in the last months of 2016- two of our cats, and one Great Dane. In the last few weeks, however, we've added back to the household. We have the mother-son pair of cats adopted from our local(ish) rescue, Lyra and Zorro:

And our new Great Dane puppy, Ares. He's about 9 months old and already around 130 pounds. He's also from a rescue group. We don't know his full story, but he's very timid (but getting better). He does get on great with our other Dane, however, and the two of them play with great vigor.

I am thinking of buying it, so any advice or suggestions would help!

We have cameras around the house and barn so we can check up on the animals when we're gone, but we've never tried anything with lasers or treats. But we have enough animals that they can keep each other occupied when we're not here. And if the cameras tell us anything, it's that two minutes after we walk out the door none of them seem to know or care that we ever existed!

As if last week wasn't busy enough with the March for Science, our goat Naomi picked Wednesday evening to drop a kid. it was somewhat unexpected, as we didn't know the date she bred and she didn't really show any signs that she was getting close. The baby is doing pretty well, but had to be tube fed up until today because he wouldn't suckle. He does seem to be getting the hang of it now, however. We thought to call him Curry, because as a boy, that's where he's likely to end up. But in keeping with the names of his relatives, he's now Levi.

Curry :shock: (and in the Pets thread :!: )

It's as plain as the nose on his wall that he should have been named Skip Hinnant (voice of Fritz the Cat):

<<Love of Chair was a recurring sketch on the television program The Electric Company. The sketch was a parody of classic soap operas, and spoofed numerous aspects of these shows:

    The name of the sketch was based on the long-running TV soap opera Love of Life.

    The unseen announcer for the sketch was Ken Roberts, who at one time had been the announcer for Love of Life.

    The sketch featured background organ music similar in style to that of classic radio soap operas, including the use of dramatic strings during a key portion of the sketch.
The scene was always set in a room with bare featureless walls and floors [Note: the information content inside a room depends not on the volume of the room but on the area of the bounding walls], and focused on the actions of a boy (played by Skip Hinnant dressed as a pre-teenaged child). In the early sketches, the only other visible objects in the room were a simple wooden chair in which the boy usually sat, and a paneled door in the background. Later sketches occasionally included one or two additional inanimate objects, but the chair would always be visible in the shot during each sketch. During the regular sketches, the boy never spoke; the only voice heard was that of the off-screen announcer.

The Naomi mentioned in the segment refers to Naomi Foner, who was a producer on the show during the first two seasons and is the mother of actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

In the final “Chair” sequence, which was shown only in season 2, the sketch started normally. However, right after the sketch started the boy turned to face the camera and angrily interrupted the announcer who just said as always, "As our story begins, the boy is sitting" to declare, "No, he isn't! The boy is quitting!" The background organ music suddenly stopped, and the camera changed to show the door in the background. The boy slammed down his baseball cap and quickly walked across the room and through the door, slamming it loudly behind him. After a moment's silence, the shocked announcer sputtered, "But...what about Naomi?" The scene then faded to black—and reopened on the entire cast of The Electric Company standing on a stage under a banner that read, "What about Naomi?" The cast sang a brief song that repeatedly asked "What about Naomi?" along with other questions about her ("Is she tall?" "Is she fat?"). The final lines of the song ran What about Naomi? What about Naomi? We shall never know. This was one of the last two Love of Chair segments in which Hinnant spoke, and the song that played was never rebroadcast.>>
