Dogs and Cats

Just a quick post tonight. Here are some pictures of dogs and cats.

Great Dane, Large Dog, Buenos Aires, ArgentinaLook at the size of this Great Dane. This was from a long ago trip to Argentina.

Guard and Dogs - Simon the Stylites the younger - Monastery - Closed Archaeology site - TurkeyHere is another memory. These two dogs belong to a man who was guarding an archaeological site in Turkey that we were trying to visit. Unfortunately, we did not get to see what we were there for.

Pat, Long Hair Chihuahua, Family Dog, National Dog DayHere is my childhood friend Pat. She was such a good dog.

Kedma Village, White Cat, Israel, Two Color of EyesNow on to a few cats. This cat was a resident of Kedma Village which is where I stayed during my first archaeological dig in Israel.

What do you notice about this cat?

Cat - Feline - Cat Eyes - Tarragon the Cat - KittyHere is my friend Tarragon. I always enjoy visiting my friends at the orchard as I get to see my favorite cat. Tarragon will follow me around while I take pictures.

dog with cats, Pat, My dog, National Dog DayOK, one more picture that includes both dogs and cats.

Here is Pat with some of the cats that we had when we lived in Ashland, Kansas.

I am now trying to remember the names of the cats. The only one I can remember is Midnight which was the black cat.

Now for some sleep.


The Barnyard Dog II

Two years ago I wrote a post about The Barnyard Dog.

Barnyard Dog, dogs, pets, country dogsMy friends now have a new barnyard dog. Unfortunately the first Barnyard Dog was hit by a truck earlier this year. Even though I miss the original Barnyard Dog I am really starting to like the second one.

Isn’t this a pretty dog? I like her because she is not too big. I have a bit of an aversion to big dogs.

Barnyard Dog, dogs, pets, country dogsShe always meets me when I pull up in Old Blue and will walk with me to the house. She also will not go running off all over the place like the first Barnyard Dog.

Barnyard Dog, dogs, pets, country dogsDoesn’t she look so happy in this picture?

Here you can see a nice big black spot on her back. I really like the patterns and coloration of her fur.

California Barn, Country Barn, Red Barn, BarnyardShe definitely rules the barnyard and unfortunately has banished Tarragon to the other side of the barn.

Cat - Barn Cat - Feline - Tarragon - Pretty CatI now have to go for a bit of a walk to go spend some time with my favorite cat.

It is nice to have friends with pets when you are away from home too much to have one of your own.
