Periodic puppy pics

Because it's always nice to have a picture of Callie. She's been loving the nice weather these past few days. When she's not sitting in the grass, she's rolling in it. That, or chasing the tennis ball after I throw it, or tracking down lizards on the rock walls, or generally wandering around sniffing everything.

Callie resting in the grass while I took photos.

Today I'm getting my haircut. I will be in the chair at the moment of the solar eclipse. It's not a total eclipse, but it will still be noticeable, from what I've heard. We're supposed to have relatively clear cloudy and drizzly skies, so it will be interesting. I'll see it on the news, of course.

Bert's vet visit was good. He's ok in the carrying case, but he didn't like being in the car. Loud meows all the way. But once in the examining room he was a perfect gentleman. He got his shots and a worm pill and he has neither gained nor lost weight since last year. His teeth are good, too. I let him out of the carrier on the way home and he stood up with his paws on the dashboard, then the passenger door, looking out the windows the whole way.

    1. Exactly my question, Tim! Walt did Bertie continue to mew or was he quiet while he got a chance to observe different surroundings???

  4. Bertie is a gentleman. Most cats would get as low as possible and hide behind the brake pedal.

    1. carolyn, you know, I thought about him climbing up on the dashboard, but not under the pedals. I was thinking as I drove, "this is not a really smart thing to do." I don't think I'll be doing it again.

  5. Callie is a beauty and so photogenic. Bert is clearly much more "stable" than our cats (past or present). If we were in a car and let them out of their travel cages, I'm sure they'd run and hide under the seats.

    1. Or under your brake pedal, as mine tried to do :)

    2. There must be a cat journal that goes out to all cats: " When forced to ride in a moving vehicle the safest place is under the brake pedal." My other cat always did that. This one I have now has not had the opportunity!
