All in the Family

Moses the African elephant was in rough shape and orphaned until he was found and adopted by the big family at the Jumbo Foundation.

Now he’s got it all – dogs, people, meelks, a big bed and lots of room to play and roam.

I always thought my family was a mishmash of wonderful weirdos until I saw these photos send in by Beverly W. via YAHOO! News.

Six Reasons Why Pets Are Better Than Dates

Pets snuggle with no ulterior motives.


You expect your pet to sometimes smell funny. You worry when your date does. Conversely, your pet seems to enjoy it when you are especially malodorous, whereas your date does not.


Your pet doesn’t mind so much when you wear matching outfits.


Your pet doesn’t care if you have put on a few pounds, have some extra hair in weird places or if you’re wearing those holey sweatpants. Some dates expect you to step it up.


When you give your pet dinner out of a bag, can or crisper drawer, they act like it is French cuisine.


Your pet will always be happy to see you and will act like it’s been an eternity since they saw you last. If your date is not happy to see you, get a different date. Better yet, get a pet.

Kelly G. writes, “This is my adorable Sharpei, Roscoe, sleeping with my cat, Little Brittle (formerly known as Itty Bitty). This is proof that cats and dogs can live together in harmony. By the way, I rescued Brittle after my brother found her meowing outside of his bedroom window last winter. She was abandoned by her mother and had to be bottle fed until she was big enough to eat on her own. Now she’s part of my furry family and BFF’s with the best dog friend a cat could ask for.”

Most blokes only go to ten. Where can you go from 10? Nowhere. I’m one more than ten.

Queen (and King) of Manipulation

It makes me sad when you don’t do what I want to do.


No, no, just go on with your day and I will wait here, all alone, on this bed with no company except this hard, plastic, red bone.


That’s a hoomin! Good hoomin! My love is your treat.
