What Have You Been Bitten By?

Lately I’ve been thinking about how loving, living, and working with animals often involves some exposure to TEETH… and I started to think about all the different kinds of critters that have bitten me. Here’s a little list. (I’ll add on if I remember more later!)

I have been bitten by:

– Dogs
– Cats
– Hamsters
– Snakes
– Insects
– An Alligator Lizard*
– An African Pygmy Hedgehog

Of course, this doesn’t include getting stung or pinched by other types of animals! ;D

What have you been bitten by?


*Don’t play with Alligator Lizards. They will not be amused and you will regret it.

The hedgehog in question — Albus!
I got him from a breeder in Chicago when I lived in Las Vegas years ago.

Beach Blog 3: Grandfather

I recently went on a beach trip. It was just for a few days, and I didn’t take a dog along
this time. But I did start thinking about the last beach trip, which was a year ago.

I took Grandfather… and never put the pictures up here. So, at long last, here we go!

I’m not sure that this is what Sugar meant by
tiny beautiful things, but it’s definitely on my list.

A New Beginning

Hi again, everyone! Happy New Year.  ❤

It’s been an awful long time since I’ve posted on here, and I would really like for that to change. This particular post is going to be short and sweet, but I promise that there will be more to come soon, and for now I’ll leave you with a quick story (or should I say, a tiny tail tale)…  😉

The other day, I was thinking about Buzz’s and Jasmine’s names. (They were already named before we met them.) The family that they used to live with had children, so I had always assumed that Buzz might have to do with Buzz Lightyear. But it suddenly occurred to me that Jasmine could also be from a kids’ movie — Princess Jasmine!

Folks, it took me eight years to have this light bulb moment. Eight years. And this [possible] revelation thrilled me for the rest of the day, let me tell you.  😀

Buzz’s Beach Trip: Part 2

So it occurred to me yesterday that I was missing quite a “few” photos from my original post. And of course, some of the ones that I missed out on were fancier and more interesting than the ones I did find to upload. Oh, well. Better late than never, right?

We found several rock sculptures.

We made a fire and roasted marshmallows.

Buzz enjoyed his first trip to the beach. He’s not as comfortable in water as Watson is (none of the other Schnauzers are!), so he didn’t spend much time in the ocean. (Except for a few minutes when, unbeknownst to me, don Ubaldo decided it would be a good idea to pick him up and carry him into the ocean and then have him swim out… I saw photos of this later and scolded don Ubaldo a bit.)  😛

I think Buzz’s favorite thing to do was chase birds (that were flying up in the sky or over the ocean). He would just run and run and run along the beach and think that eventually he would get to them. May we all be so persistent in chasing our dreams!
