Y’all, I totally forgot to tell you Klondike’s story on yesterday’s Great Pyrenees post. It’s a good thing today is This’n’That Thursday, hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs. A little of this and a little of that. Here’s what Klondike’s mom tells me about him:
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″] Klondike was adopted from the Good Shepherd animal shelter in Eureka Springs, AR. He was a year and 6 mo old, and had been completely shaven due to mats everywhere. His name was Magellan as he Traveled the Earth:) He was terrified of men and wind, dumpsters, strange women, scared of everyone. We brought him home and have worked on socializing him. He is calm, happy and well trained now. He smiles at you by curling his upper lip, lol.[/quote]
I love Klondike’s Elvis smile. 🙂 Thank you, Cathy, for sharing his story! Klondike truly is sweet and socialized. He took to me immediately.
In other news, Humperdink is out and about for the first time in over a week.
He’s no longer amorously pursuing the dogs or spraying the house, so hooray for neutering! However, he’s taken to chewing on cords. The first cord he destroyed was the charger for my phone. Boo! Hiss! Any hints and tips are appreciated in that regard.
Speaking of animals which probably shouldn’t be in the house, Boromir was inside yesterday.
*sigh* Flash knows that he can’t eat the chickens. He also knows that they don’t belong in the house. It makes him kinda crazy. See that face? He wants Boromir in the worst way. It’s cute when he starts stalking them, but I always put a stop to it. Here’s Boromir talking back to him.
She’s a sassy chicken. She also keeps tabs on these two:
Since Petey has been gone (see here), Jimmy has calmed down considerably. He went from trying to kill Ryan ALL THE TIME, to being his best friend. The two are inseparable.
They’re a little bit of a bully pair, too, choosing all the best food for themselves and scaring off the chickens until they’ve had their fill. Truth be told, I don’t mind so much. Those girls have been awfully mean to Ryan.
If you’re wondering how Petey’s doing, his mom wrote me earlier in the week to say that he ate out of her hand for the first time and she was thrilled! So he’s doing well, hanging out with chickens and goats on a farm. His new mama is good to him.
Y’all, don’t forget to leave a comment on the giveaway post! And come back next Tuesday for ANOTHER giveaway!
Until I write again …
