This one always gives me a chuckle. Toodles is pouting. I had just brought home Matilda, my little girl Yorkie. She was very small and afraid of everything so I was holding her a lot. Toodles very plainly shows how he felt about the whole thing!
This is not a recent photo, but a nice one I think. This big buck had been eating plums from the neighbor's tree. His twin was only about ten yards from me, eating pears. I stayed close to the house incase they decided to charge.
I had tied these ribbons around my bird feeder because the squirrels kept knocking the top off. In this photo one squirrel slipped under the ribbons to feast on seeds, looking like he was wrapped as a gift, as a second was on the opposite side, it's bushy tail in the face of the one under the ribbon. Here is my dear old Barnabas. It looks like he is thinking, "with mustard or catsup" as he looks at my cousins tiny critter.
Here are some old remedies I found in Mom's recipe's. I make no claim that these will work and advise you ask your doctor before trying.
