There's Some Pet Shows That Are Just Flat Out Wrong !

Ok, I understand that some people overly dote on their pets and frankly, I like that idea. There comes a point in time, however, when some pet owners need to have their own family trees and breeding checked, as well. Take the case of these poodle owners who have taken dog competition to a whole new level.

These people definitely have too much time on their hands and should be taken back to the asylum that they escaped from. The poodles themselves have to be embarrassed as well. I mean, how can you hang out with your pals after the show looking like this? I guarantee you that you wont find any cats that will put up with this lunacy.

Pet Of The Week: Patches, who belongs to Helen's daughter, Mira, is home once again, safe and sound. It turns out Patches wandered away from her home and when Helen came to feed her, she was missing in action. Helen went looking for her and then her husband Ken had to go looking for Helen in the car. Once Ken found Helen, they located Patches in someone's yard with two other pooches. Patches was ecstatic to see Helen and Ken and is now home. Judging from her picture, I'd say it's business as usual.

There's been a lot of stories about people and animals in the news and many of my pals have sent me stories and pictures to share with you. Here are just a few of the ditties that I received from my pals and readers this week.

My pal, Linda sent me this picture of a cat who apparently is not overjoyed about being outside in the snow. From the look on it's face, I'm assuming the cat's thinking, "Uh...excuse me...You'd think at least one of my owners wouldn't be so senile as to forget I'm outside! Hey ! Murray ! Open the damned door... Murray? Marge?........"

Then, there's the case of a sign on a road that really shouldn't be there. It's designed to protect hikers and bikers from traffic but judging from the alternative, I think I'd just stay on the road and take my chances with the traffic. But that's just me.

I know this spot well. It's taken from a place called Shark Valley, a preserve located in the Florida Everglades off of Tamiami Trail. There's an observation tower there to see the flora and fauna of the Everglades, but as you can see, the tower really isn't necessary to see a few 'gators up close and personal.

The Cat's Meow And Puppy Dog Tales:

A man rear-ended a car in morning traffic. The two cars pulled over to the side of the road and slowly, both drivers got out. The driver of the rear-ended car was a dwarf and he stormed over to the driver of the car who hit him, looked up and yelled, "I Am Not Happy!" The driver of the second car looked down at him and said, "Well, then which one are you?"

Two cowboys come upon an Indian lying on his stomach with his ear to the ground. One of the cowboys stops and says to the other, "You see that Indian? Look, he's listening to the ground. He can hear things for miles in any direction."

Just then the Indian looks up and says. "Covered wagon, about two miles away. Have two horses, one brown, one white. Man, woman, child, household effects in wagon." The cowboy to his friend, "This is incredible! He knows how far away they are, how many horses, what color they are, who is in the wagon, and what is in the wagon. That's amazing!"

The cowboy says to the Indian, "Tell me, how are you able to know so much about the covered wagon and it's occupants. The Indian looks up and says, "Wagon ran over me about a half hour ago."

That's Possum's Journal for this week. Have a Happy Ester and a great weekend. More next week.

Those poodles are really far out. (Didn't John Dever used to say that?) Love Patches and so glad there was a good ending. Anne

Possum, glad you liked the picture of the freezing cold kitty. That kittie's owners should be locked out like it was. Those poodles are just plain weird. What kind of person would do that to a dog? You're right ~ a nut case. Hugs from Linda in Washington

I believe the purple poodle has retained Gloria Allred in her 5 million dollar lawsuit against her former owner.~Mary
