Shadow is a Golden Retriever owned by some friends of ours. He has a problem with his back legs (I forgot what it is called) that hinders his walking, and most of his legs drag behind him. I love this picture because it shows him standing up straight, not falling, as he patrols the yard.

Bev - He looks very proud here. Nice shot Emilee.

Rachel - Awww…you can tell his spirit is so strong! What a sweet boy.

Moon, a larger version

Remember little Moon? Well, he’s not so little anymore! I dropped by his house today and got a few shots of him, and, oh my, has he grown! He is only 8 months old and is larger than Buddy. He is expected to be over 200 pounds full grown. Wow! And, although a handful, he is completely adorable. While we were inside, he had to stay outside and ran to all of the doors and windows, whining and jumping, begging to come in. Moon is definitely a people dog. When I took some pictures of him, I tried to kneel on the ground for some shots, but he wanted to sit on my lap. :P Oh well, I did get some cute shots of him, though.

PLEASE let me in. Please?

Olivia is home!

Well, Olivia is home and is back to her normal (crazy) self. She is so happy to be home, and we’re so happy to have her back! She doesn’t have to wear a cone, like I thought, so no cone-head pictures. The vet told us that she is fine and can do everything she normally does, which is good, because it would be very hard to keep her from playing and jumping!

To celebrate Olivia’s homecoming, I’m having a little giveaway. A long time ago I had a bunch of notecards printed that feature some beach photos I took about a year ago. I’ll give away one pack, which includes 8 notecards, 2 each of 4 designs. They were printed from shutterfly a while back, and now they’re just sitting around, so I want you to have them! :) (Next time I’ll give away something pet themed, okay?)

To enter, just leave a comment telling me a weird fact about your pet. If you have a non-weird pet, just share one of the characteristics that stands out most to you! I’ll start: Buddy chases reflections, Olivia eats dead things (yuck!), and Lester likes fruity popsicles.

At the end of the week, I’ll randomly select 1 commenter to send a pack of cards to!

Here’s what the cards look like (please excuse the glare from the flash, I took these very quickly!):

And here is Olivia enjoying being home!

Gah, look at those teeth! :D

Melissa - Kyla doesn’t bark.

Amber Leonard - My cat Clara has an unusal habit of eating things she shouldn’t. One Christmas my husband bought me a sweater from the GAP. I washed it one day and laid out flat on top of the dryer for it to dry. I came home from work and Clara had eaten a huge chunck out of the corner of it. Of course she almost automatically started acting funny. She couldn’t use the litter box at all. One trip to the vet and 2 weeks of kitty cat laxative later she was ok. Then there was the time she ate a piece of scotch tape. Laxitive couldn’t do the trick this time. Surgery was required. Then two days after we got her home she ate a hair rubber band. Thankfully she threw it up!

Meredith - oh my word. the last pic is ADORABLE

Jill - aww Olivia is SO cute!

Andrew Lee - My pug, Pugoda, bodyrolls face first into things with a strong scent. Example: My wife tried some now Paul Mitchell shampoo, and Pugoda rolled onto my wife’s head when she was laying on the couch. Its not the craziest thing, but it is pretty funny to watch.
