Wonderful, Fred! :kitty: :puppy:

As a cat person, i prefer the picture of Brutus - he is so cute and handsome, awwww! - but even I love the "Dog Santa" and his (and your) Go Team therapy dog.

Your family looks good, too! Merry Christmas to you and your family! :D (Or as we say in Swedish, after the very important days of Christmas are over, "God fortsättning!". This means, loosely translated, Happy continuation of the rest of the Christmas holidays!)

We have recently adopted a German Shepherd, it's been a while since we had a dog at home. Aside from a pooch, we have biobubble terrarium for our bloodfin tetras.

Pets are so good to us and yet many people don't appreciate them! And dogs really care for peoples love; and give us unconditional love in return!

Hello! In your city, there were no restrictions on the walking of pets? I heard in big cities can be fined if you walk with a dog (

Can't post images yet but I find it really funny everytime I log into the computer to control the imaging rig my cat comes into my room to check on what I am doing. No idea, what he can see on my screen. :?:

Some advantages to smallville USA! Actually We are not a big city; but not small either! Just as long as you make use of a pooper scooper! And put your pets junk in a bag! :mrgreen: I never heard of that restriction for big cities, however!

I was sitting on our front deck last night, with our other cat Jasmine, when we were visited by a neighborhood hawk. After two swoops it landed in the tree across the street.

It dawned on me to grab the camera. I thought it was trolling for birds at the feeder. Then it left its perch and headed straight for us.

At the last moment it pulled up

and headed around to the back yard.

I wonder if this type of hawk goes after pets?

Luckily Jasmine was totally unaware. :clap:

Nice shots of a very nice Cooper's hawk Fred.
