Pets Of The Week - It hasn't Been A Very Good Week

Sadly, I have to begin with bad news. My pal, Linda in Washington lost her Gabi Lin on Wednesday. Gabi was sick for a few days and got progressively worse. She died of renal failure. Please stop by and see my good friend Linda as she is devastated.

I'd also like to commend my pal robin, author of "The Yellow Brick Road" for keeping in close touch with linda not only with Gabi's condition, but Linda as well.

If you want to see some fancy chickens and other interesting critters, you should stop by and see Kelly who publishes "The Chicken Chronicles Again". I always enjoy seeing her beautiful animals and keep up on what's going on there. I think you will find it interesting. You can read Kell's blog at

These aren't the only creatures that Kelly has. She's got emus, horses, peacocks and an asortment of show fowl that is incredible. You'll understand better when you visit her blog site.

The Pets Of The Week feature is going well but remember to send your pictures and stories to and we'll post them. It doesn't matter if you have already sent in pictures. Things keep changing and new pictures and stories happen every day.

The Cat's Meow And Puppy Dog Tales:

A woman went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00. She ask the owner, "Why so little?" The owner replied, "Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff."

The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird anyway. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, "New house, new madam." The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought, "That's not so bad."

When her two teenage daughters returned from school the bird saw them and said, "New house, new madam, new girls." The girls and the woman were a bit offended but then began to laugh about the situation.

Moments later, the woman's husband, Robert, came home from work. The bird looked at him and said, "Hi Robert."

This Just In: The age old question has finally been answered.

An Amish lady is trotting down the road in her horse and buggy when she is pulled over by a cop. The cop said, "Ma'am, I'm not going to ticket you, but I do have to issue you a warning. You have a broken reflector on your buggy." The woman answered, "Oh, I'll let my husband, Jacob, know as soon as I get home."

The cop added, "Another thing, ma'am. I don't like the way that one rein loops across the horse's back and around one of his balls. I consider that animal abuse. That's cruelty to animals. Have your husband take care of that right away!"

Later that day, the lady is home telling her husband about her encounter with the cop. Her husband said, "Well, dear, what exactly did he say?" The woman said, "He said the reflector is broken."The husband said, "I can fix that in two minutes. What else?"The woman replied, "I'm not sure, Jacob, something about the emergency brake."

That's Possum's Journal for this week. Have a great weekend and I'll see you next week.

Thank you so much Possum, Gabi really thought you were hot stuff! You now have your own personal guardian angel watching over you. Tell your aunt Jeanne for the sweet comment she left. That was really nice of her. And thanks to your dad for all of his good wishes. Hugs to you...Gabi's mom, Linda
