“Does This Meet ‘Tocktober Criteria?”

21burnaby lake oct 25 15 006That was the Subject Line for Margaret M.’s email. So…let me think about that for a minute. OK, yes. “Have to start with I LOVE YOUR SITE! Thought I would Duck in and drop this off before the month wraps up! Taken at Piper Spit on Burnaby Lake in Burnaby British Columbia.”

Training For Rio 2016

In case you didn’t know, Ping Pong AKA Table Tennis has been in the Olympics since 1988. The next Summer Games don’t get started until next August, and that gives this puppeh plenty of time to sharpen his/her game.

I Don’t Get No Respect

[I sit here all day long, just charging up my Zen and soaking up some Solars- and these little knuckleheads think I’m their own personal jungle gym. They might be right.]

We Ain’t Scared Of No Stinkin’ Graveyard!

Remember the little Rescue Guys who kept poppin’ outta the pumpkin yesterday? Just one little furry head after another?

They’re BAAAAAAAACK. And this time they’re in a spooky GRAVEYARD too. (No, not really. A fake one.)

Rufus The Trick Or Treating Raccoon

unnamedRufus has NOT met a treat he did not like. This video is c/o Matt C., the man genius behind Jurabbit Park. He explains:

“My family puts food out for a stray cat in the neighborhood. One night, that caught the attention of a curious snack bandit, who came up and poked around. I decided to try and make friends. It took three weeks for Rufus to trust me enough to eat from my hand. As I posted these videos throughout the summer, I couldn’t go a day without someone asking when he was going to rip my face off. ‘He’s not going to know how to forage like a wild animal.’ ‘You’re gonna give him diabetes.’ Everyone had an opinion. [*Note: Really. -Ed.]

But, it’s possible to maintain respect for a living creature while building an unconventional bond based on the occasional helping of sweets. And that’s what I did with Rufus. By the end of the video, you’ll see that, not only is Rufus healthy and prepped for winter, he’s still a wild raccoon. He just happens to know a human with a solid treat hookup. He’s a wonderful creature, and a friend I’m lucky to have made.”

NEW Maru (As A Kitteh!)

Most of us only know Maru has a rather Blorpular Circle. But there was a time when…believe it or not…he wasn’t Blorpy. Nope.

Like when he was SIX MONTHS OLD. Let’s flashback, shall we?
