Manolo Back by Popular Demand

I've received several emails asking about Manolo, how he is, what he's doing...if I got rid of him! Well, Manolo's still with me and he's doing better than ever. I changed his diet and now he's his ideal weight. He's not eating too many sunflower seeds and he's eating more veggies and grains. He loves cooked white rice and corn. I'm posting pictures of him taken yesterday. enjoy! ;)

Cat in Robe

That's the main difference between cats and dogs. A dog gets you your slippers and the newspaper...a cat...a cat wants YOU to get them for him.  :lol:


Bunnies in Car

This is how they roll!

Pretty Smile

It's Friday, reason enough to smile.

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.

Snow Day!

Not everyone likes snow. It's beautiful (when it's white) and festive but it's also a pain in the butt sometimes. I remember when I was a kid I used to love the snow, the more the better but now it's a pain :lol: You have to shovel it and take it off your car and it gets on your shoes. We should've stayed kids forever! Don't get me wrong, it's still beautiful ;)

Dog VS Balloons

Got some time to kill? watch this :lol: Dog on a mission!

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.

Performing Dogs

These dogs are amazing! The best part is when they have to clear out their crap after they're finished with their tricks :lol: Poor things, I bet that lady makes them load up the van too.

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! :lol:



Robo hamsters

These are Lola and Lala. These pictures are very funny because these 2 hammies are very hyper and never stop goofing around until their battery runs out. They fall asleep in the weirdest positions and they're very cute to watch.


Lola falling on her side...dozing off. Good tip: If you fall asleep on your wheel, the other one doesn't take your place when you wake up! ;)



Nice pillow! :lol:

Eternal Animal Friendship

Oscar and Arthur are the main characters in this sad, sad and touching story.  Oscar the dog and Arthur, a  17-year-old cat were the "bestest" of friends. They really loved each other! They loved each other so much that when Arthur passed away and went to kitty heaven, Oscar was inconsolable. The poor doggy missed his friend so much that he went to the backyard --where he saw his owners bury the cat-- and dug up Arthur's body. He then brought Arthur back in the house, cleaned him up and laid him in his basket where they used to sleep together. When their owners discovered this they were so moved that they decided to get Oscar a new kitty friend to ease his pain. Arthur was later buried in a more secure place.

So so sad, a bit creepy but very sad. I'm sure Oscar will never forget Arthur and no new kitty will ever replace him in Oscar's heart.

The Nuremberg polar bear

Knut move over! :lol: I kid, I kid. I missed posting this but I just want to catch up with cute happenings around the world. It turns out Germany has another cash cow polar bear cub to show to the world. I know, it's mean. I'm sorry. Well, the zookeepers at the Nuremberg zoo have actually saved a polar bear cub from his mom after she seemed too nervous to take care of it and even tried to kill it by dragging him around and slamming him on some rocks. Bad mommy! Well, the cub was taken away from the momma bear and now the keepers are raising HER (it's a girl!) just like they raised Knut. She is adorable, that's for sure! Now the question is...will she make more money than Knut? :lol: I mean, Knut has books and stuffed animals and even a movie!





Love *sigh* how nice! ;o) I decided to make the banner with a Valentine's day theme since it's a month away.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I was wishing for 2007 to be over so I'm very happy that it's 2008 already. This year is going to be great, it's gonna bring many good things, you'll see. Well, I'm not going to be unfair, 2007 did bring some good things...and some CUTE things. Remember the Chihuahua with the heart on his side? OMG! I hope his owner keeps a bodyguard on him cuz I know a lot of people would love to take that little cutie home. Then there was the story about the baby monkey and the dove. A very unusual pair that became the sweetest of friends. And the tiger cubs afraid of chicks!!! This picture has been the most viewed on this blog. That picture could make the toughest of men go "awwww". Then there was the kitty cat playing xbox  :lol: and of course... Manolo! Yes, it all happened in 2007 so you can bet 2008 will be even better. Cheers everyone!
