Picture This #247 ~ Cats And Dogs

What a marvelous banner for this week, one of Belita's superb portraits of people.

I don't currently have an animal living with me, at least none that I am aware of. Certainly there are spiders walking around in the basement and as long as they don't bother me, I do not bother them.  I was tempted to include a picture of the gecko lizard that lived in our Florida house, but he is not even a mammal.

Anyway, here are some animals I have known to one degree or another.

Dog with frisbee
I forgot his name but he was a star at the Broward Dog Beach in Florida.

Vancouver
Vancouver, who somehow got called Dippy, in my ill-tended garden. She was a marvelous mouser and a fine companion who lived to be 19.

CompuCat1
My Honey, who left us last December.  That's my Yahoo 360! page on the computer.

  1. A good catch on the first one, interesting photo.What a majestic look Dippy has, she really knows that cats rule. No. 3 is a super photo, I am sure she was communicated with the computer.

    1. Thanks, Pat. Honey did have a favorite YouTube video, the original "Two Cats Talking". Mostly she liked the warmth.

  2. Hi Benni !! Three great shots for the theme. Good action-capture of the dog. Was he a champion frisbee-catcher? I've never seen a photo of Dippy before, was she before Honey? Lovely colours. I love that third shot, I was hoping you would post it. It's just such a beautiful shot.

    1. Thank you, Mitch. The dog was just a regular dog who liked to swim. His owner would throw the frisbee out and the dog would happily swim to it. Vancouver/Dippy was our first cat; we got her shortly after we got our house. I had a hard time choosing a Honey picture, so I am very glad you like this one. I do too.

    1. Thanks, Belita. It's so nice for dogs and their owners to have a beach where they can frolic off their leashes, and nice for me to watch.
