A Hundred Pound Wet Rat
Have you ever seen a 100-pound wet rat? The first time I spotted a large male beaver on Cedar Creek, (Mineral County, Montana) that's exactly what I thought it was. I looked again, perhaps the gangly creature waddling down the bank was a bear cub. My next thought was, where is Mama Bear?
The Cool Cat Merchandise That Every Cat Lover Deserves
There are two things that I thoroughly enjoyed during my childhood, playing with my pets, and sketching. I was lucky to grow up in a pet-friendly household that allowed me to have a dog and a cat. I was pretty active in sketching and drawing when I was younger. As I grew older and entered my teenage years, school started demanding more and more of my time. I stopped spending time sketching and nurturing my drawing talent. My free time was consumed by either studying or some other meaningless stuff. The raging hormones that come with puberty didn’t help either. I cleared high school and joined college, where I studied while working part-time. As you can guess, my schedule never allowed me to have any hobbies. My primary focus was on school and work.
This is my dog Chloe Rocket she is 10 years old. I have had her since I was 12. She was a birthday present for my 12th birthday she was so small and cute. I was at school all day and when I got home I walked In the door and noticed that my dad was holding something very small but could not tell what it was until I got close enough. Then I realized it was a puppy dog she was shy at first because she had been with mom and dad all then I came home from school and I was a new face to her. but then she warmed up to me and we played and had so much fun. Then Mom and dad asked me what I wanted to name her so I came up with Chloe, after Chloe for Beverly Hills Chihuahua. Even if she looks more like Poppy. Her Birthday is January 10th 2010. When she was a puppy she thought she was a Big dog she would go in the back yard and run down the hill in our backyard and grab the biggest stick she could find and run up the hill with it in her mouth. She varies playful when she wants to but also because she is small she loves to sleep a lot and snuggle with me. As a small dog she varies brave but also gets scared often some things are silly like she is afraid of her own shadow and the fact that loud noises outside scar her. A big fear of hers is thunderstorms we just had one a few nights ago she was shaking very badly that I had to put her blanket in the corner near us to make her feel better. After that, she was calmer and we were able to enjoy the rest of the movie. Chloe knows she is small but because of her natural behavior she wants to protect her family at all costs. So if she hears something or sees something she barks to warn us of trouble. She does not like animals vary much if she sees a bird or a squirrel she chases after them it works every time that animal sees her coming they run up a tree fast or fly away. The animals know not to mess with her. Chloe is varied curious she sniffs everything she loves plants, grass, flowers too. Chloe is varied smart to she remembers things very well people think that Chihuahua has the memory for 3 min. but my dog Chloe is super smart she can do several tricks like standing on her back legs and do a full 180 spin without touching the ground. She can also sing a song her favorite songs to sing are Happy Birthday and the Sesame Street theme song. Going along with the singing she can also sing certain words or sentences like Mom Dad and I love you. Chloe is a lover and a fighter how she is a Lover she loves on me by snuggling with me and also she gives lots of kisses. She loves her family lots she shows it by giving lots of kisses or waging her tailor barking in excitement. How she is a fighter is she is always is on high alert and is something happens she barks at the sound. She is determined to keep us safe at all times best protection ever who needs A.D.T. when I have a dog who is free security. Overall I love my dog with all my heart I would not change anything in the world for it.
The Cult of Carole Baskin: How the “Tiger King” Affects Modern Zoos and Aquariums

The Cat Food Wars are Over
When JJ, my $3,000 street rescue, took me hostage in 2005 she was possibly six months old and pregnant. After she had her litter of five, I began feeding her tiny cans of Fancy Feast because those hungry little fiends were sucking the calories out of her as fast as she could inhale them. If either my partner or I moved in the general direction of the kitchen, a gray blur would whip past us and if we actually went into the kitchen we would find Miss JJ on the counter on her hind legs with her front paws on the cupboard door.
