Who’s Cuter?

Knut or Flocke? It seems that Flocke’s zoo needs a promotional agent. By this time Knut was already on the cover of Vanity Fair and all the newspapers! Flocke is way cuter in my opinion. Poor thing, I can’t believe that bad momma bear wanted to kill such a precious furball. If polar bears stayed this little forever they’d be the number one pet. Dogs could not compete with their cuteness. 😆

Snow day in Chi-town

Ok, this is for real. We got (and are still getting) a foot of snow. People are digging themselves out of their houses. Some people can’t find their cars…they’re buried under the snow! It’s pretty nasty, and on a Friday it’s double nasty. I saw a squirrel this morning trying to make its way up a tree and it almost killed itself trying to jump from one garage roof to the other…kind of like a scene from cliffhanger. 😆

Cat in suitcase

Cats are crazy! Turns out this kitty sneaked into his owner’s suitcase and traveled in the suitcase from Florida to Texas. The suitcase got lost (of course) and another person found the cat. Kitty had gone thru the xray machine, had been thrown at baggage claim and all that fun. The people who found the cat eventually called the cat’s owner and the kitty took the 1,300-mile trip back home. That cat’s lucky, really. If he did that in my luggage from Chicago to Madrid he wouldn’t tell the same story.

It’s Cold!!!!


Feels like -21! Gosh that’s cold. That’s the tropical weather we’re having here in Chicago. For some of you guys, that’s -29C. 😉 I always feel sorry for all those squirrels and birds out there. Some have their nests in trees and you can almost tell they freeze in there. You gotta be pretty smart if you’re a squirrel in Chicago. I remember last month when the temperature dropped dramatically overnight I saw a frozen squirrel on the ground. It probably didn’t have enough time to make or find a good nest. How tragic.

What the…

Flocke…that’s the official name for the polar bear cub at the Nuremberg zoo. It’s German and it means flake, like a snowflake… get it? 😉 They could’ve done better but flake isn’t such a bad name.  In other news, the poor thing appears to be cross-eyed. So sad. Maybe it was that bad momma bear that dropped her on the rocks! She’s still cute anyway. Maybe when she’s older and she bumps into the wall her eyes will get better…just a thought.

Bulldogs are cool again

It’s been 75 years since bulldogs were in the top 10 list of popular dogs. Now they have made it to the list at number 10, according to the Kennel Club’s annual ranking of popular dogs. Come on! 75 years? I see bulldogs everywhere and they’re the number one mascot for sports teams, even the Marines have a bulldog mascot. Well, I’ll tell you one thing, when they’re babies, they’re adorable! They have the cutest saddest Precious Moments face 😉

The number one spot is occupied by the Labrador Retriever, followed by the Yorkshire Terrier and the German Shepherd.  These dogs are pretty cool but they don’t have the drooling talents that a bulldog has, so take that Labs! 😆
