No longer sick as a dog


Why do people say that anyway? What does it mean, exactly, to be as “sick as a dog?” I don’t know, but I sure have been lately, so sorry for the absence the past few days.
I hope everyone’s having a lovely, long Memorial Day weekend. If you happen to stop by here, enjoy this smile…

I learned about this kitty trait when I had my beloved Zamboni. I left a cardboard box used to bring terrace plants upstairs by the front door, intending to throw it out. By Z commandeered it and, being the sucker I am, that dang box sat by my door for three years before he passed. And it even made me sad to throw it out :(
Here’s a teaser photo, hit this link for the rest. And I thank my brother blog leader for alerting me to this in the first place. I give you, ways to sleep comfortably in a box :)

    That is just absolutely too cute!!!

    Is that picture above of the great Zamboni or from the linked site?

    Hello CR! No, that’s from the site. I came to this blog long after I said goodbye to Zamboni, sadly, cause he made Stanley’s photogenic-ness look amateurish. I’ll have to find a pic of him to post one day….

    Carp is here! You’re awesome Carp!

    You better find a picture(s) of Zamboni to put on here! :)

    I’ll try CR. It will take some time. He’s on an old digital camera card, which will take me a while to download and figure out. Nobody ever accused me of being a tech genius :)
