I always seem to have difficulty with images here on the iPad. Our two standard poodles, Clover and Blackjack, are 11 years old. They are litter mates. We did get Clover as an 8 week old puppy, then got her brother some months later when they were about 6 or 7 months old. They are characters. Clover, in particular, really reacted to the birds first, then barking in Zigzag’s video above. There’s some before and after shots of Blackjack on pruning day a year ago. In 2018, the local Canada Day celebration held a pet parade, so since a cream poodle is pretty much a blank canvas, Clover became a Canadian flag. She didn’t win a prize though. Recently, Blackjack has started with some hair loss, so to keep him from shivering, he’s been wearing a sweater or t-shirt...his Halloween shirt is on display. On June 6 (until I found the photos, with date, I’d lost track of when), Clover had a series of seizures. We didn’t expect her to come home from the vet, but with medication, she’s nearly her old self.
I could go on (like I typically do), but should stop now.
This is our gang, Buddy our guardian dog is still only a puppy at 4 months old, the white cat is Sonic, 17 yrs old and counting, next up is Brian our friendly carpet python who lives in our yard and thinks he’s our pet but he’s fully wild. Then Cindy 10 yrs old rescue cat and lastly the chicks, 9 weeks old, they were given to us as day old hatchlings and we are still not sure who the boys are, though we are suspecting the white one might be a roo. I will name them once I know who is who.
The cats are fully aware of Brian and give him lots of space when he’s around, the chicks are well protected in their coop and chicken run. We have relocated the snake a few times but he just comes straight back, I guess he really likes it here so we just let him do his thing and he keeps the rodents down for us.
I hope everyone is having a great day, so, let’s get into it
