Animal Planet

THAT FROG has a Facebook page.

THAT DOG won't eat potatoes, even when it's mandated by the United Nations. She's holding out for the International Year of the Hot Dog.

THAT SQUIRREL left a partially eaten corncob on the railing of our front porch. Apparently, he's enjoying seasonal produce, although I'm not above shipping him to New Jersey with promises of sweet corn to get him and his leftovers out of my yard.

And, best of all...THAT SISTER found a one-eyed Pomeranian by the side of the road. (I can't even say "One-eyed Pomeranian" without laughing.) What makes this doubly funny is that she was on her way to the vet anyway, with a stray cat that has made it's home on HER porch. My niece has named the stray Sophie, giving all of us the impression that we now have a THAT CAT in the family. Try it: "One-eyed Pomeranian" Admit it, you're starting to giggle...

Oh, Sophie the One Eyed Pomeranian! That makes my heart melt and I'm not even a cat person.

Sounds more like Animal Planet than my aunt's house. They take care of their 3 cats, plus any that are left in their yard until they find new homes. Plus they keep treats for the horses that live next door.

The strays have a way of finding me too.

One eyed pomeranian--that's too funny!

Hope the book is flying off the shelves!
