Random Fridays

We have some sad and then some happy news....
Some of you may remember our cousin polar bear woofie Minnie. She got sick before Catmas and ended up being helped over the Bridge right after New Years.

Well...the kid is 11 years old and quiet just doesn't work. So last weekend they went to their local shelter and found this cutie:
Her name at the shelter was Strawberry and she had a sister named Blueberry. The shelter thinks she is part lab, part cattle dog. She is about 6 months old and currently weighs about 20 pounds. They got to bring her home on Wednesday. The kid hasn't had school due to weather so they got to spend yesterday and today together. Her new name: Maple Pancake (we mentioned the kid is 11 right?)

In other news, one of the blogs we check every day is the White Dog Diary. This wonderful couple adopts mainly special needs and senior Eskimo dogs. It can be rewarding and yet heartbreaking....and they have experienced another loss when Ferguson ran for the Bridge yesterday. We know they could use your purrs and support.

We don't have much planned for the weekend. Adoption event on Sunday but mom suspects it may be slow cause we still have the VERY COLDS here.

For our friends on the East Coast, we hear you about to get lots of snow..... PLEASE be careful. Bring your pets inside (where they should be anyhow), report those that don't and stay safe.


  1. What better way to warm up when it's really cold, than with a new furrever kitty friend? It's sad when old friends leave us, and so joyous when new friends come to stay. Just looked at the map of the snow storm; half of my family is gonna get it! Yikes

  2. Minnie will always be a part of that family, but there is room for more love.

    I will go over to White Dog Diaries and leave my condolences. Thank you for letting us know.

  3. So sorry about Minnie. Glad the kid got a cute puppy. That is going to be a nice dog. We are getting ready for some ice. The temp is going down, so everything is going to freeze. Most of the cats are in the house and those that are not have good shelter out in the barn and on the porch.
