Doggie Birthday Party Cafe

sailintosunset.jpg

I had a rainy day picture up and then realized, "No one wants to see rain, you buffoon."

Pet store owner gives out free treats to the neighborhood's strays, who line up outside his door at closing time.

This dog will wait for the baby to throw the ball, if it takes until the baby turns seven.

Primping before the night out.

Cat enjoying the rain.

Cat not enjoying the toy you bought for him. But he'll go crazy for the paper sleeve for a straw that you drop on the floor. But a $30 toy? Nah, that sucks.

Here's a toy he likes.

Donkey engineering.

Young elephant chomping on sugar cane.

Lion cub sneaks up on its mama.

Dog got into the catnip.

So did these kittens.

This puppy is on a catnip and helium diet.

Sometimes the beaver just needs a rest.

37 Years ago I had a big, tough street tabby named Toonses. He wasn't afraid of anything except any breed of canine. (Humans, cats, raccoons, etc., no problem; a purse chihuahua, fear.) There was one other thing: a large,
stuffed Siberian tiger I bought for him from Walgreens. Scared the stuffing out of him for nearly a month until he realized it wasn't real. I'd drop it on the hallway and kick it towards him. Dude would bolt outta there. Later, after he passed and Dorkie Dork moved in, I tried it with that sweet, little kittie and she wasn't having any of that polyester nonsense.

At the weather station in Gulfport MS we had 1/2" of rain in September. We average 60" per year. The Mississippi river is so low barges are having to run with reduced loads to make it down from harvests of the midwest farmers. Barge rates are at all time highs as a result.

100 Our cats loved Catnip, it was like a drug addict fix

Posted by: Skip at October 03, 2022 07:46 PM (xhxe


Our smartest cat figured out where we kept the catnip, jumped on the kitchen counter, opened the cabinet, and grabbed an entire ounce of catnip. We were at work.

I came home to find the cat flat on his back, floor and him covered in catnip, zonked out.

He had a party and we weren't invited.

Talk to an ENT about Meniere's disease. We had been fighting the wife's balance and vertigo issues with multiple doctors and the VA for a decade and were told she just has to live with it. She had a bad episode two months ago and after we left the ER she went to an ENT who diagnosed her with meniere's disease. No treatments but you can make it go away with a very low salt diet and dieauritic pills. The wife has not had an episode for almost two months doing that.

The suit, which was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, argues CNN has tried to use its influence to smear Trump politically and prevent him from launching a bid for re-election.

The suit alleges Trump has been a “long-time critic” of CNN, “not because CNN does a bad job of reporting the news, but because CNN seeks to create the news.”||

This reminds me of babies. V is way more into toys now that she's almost 3yo. But when she was littler, Lady YD would waste money on all these toys that she couldn't care any less about.

She wanted pens, paintbrushes, paper, tools, and computers.

I think what happens with kids is that they get to a certain age, and have the brainpower to make up pretend worlds and play in them, and then toys get really interesting.

Til then, it's just "imitate what I see mom & dad & sister doing every day."

192 And then, Tucker reports, Ukraine and Russia were *this close* to a negotiated peace, brokered through Turkey. Ukraine was going to agree to not join NATO, and put that in constitutional writing, and agree that Crimea was Russia's. Putin would've withdrawn.

They were within inches of Zelensky and Putin signing that deal. But guess what. Washington vetoed it.

Tucker then played some clips of various psychopaths speaking casually of nuclear exchange with Russia.

199 Will Smith's comeback film is called Emancipation. He's playing a slave. Looks like they darkened up his skin. A lot. Is that racist?

I'm reminded of Eddie Murphy in Bowfinger. He wants his agent to go out and find him an Oscar bait role. He suggests maybe a retarded slave; Buck the Wonder Slave.

It just feels so very manipulative.

Circling back, love the silly dog playing with the very calm cat. It's much like my dog, gotten from a local pound more than 8 years ago, as part of a big shipment that came up from the Carolinas. She's a ball of fire but finally slowing down as her 10th birthday is just weeks away.

Despite her energy (she can still clear 6' high fence), she's never gone upstairs or down to the basement on the wooden stairs, sat on any furniture or beds, or chewed any shoes, etc. She went to training & can quickly run through commands but that's it. Trainers said she's like a dingo, but sweet. Unfortunately, I encourage her by teasing & laughing as she leaps from one area rug to the next.

Will Smith's made a lot of old white queens a lot of lucre, and I bet he can call in some markers.

This act of wokeness will certainly save him. It's a show of good faith from a good earner. All will be forgiven.

And with a wink and a nod, an embarrassing spectacle involving another top earner will go away, after Smith's harrowing portrayal of Cucka Kinte in "Golddigger Coast."

The "Kunlangeta" is a term a Substacker I read, Matthew Crawford, uses for our Western "elite" leadership, both public and private. It basically means psychopath. It's an Eskimo word for the men who lie, steal, cheat, murder, and rape without conscience or remorse. Punishing them does no good, for they are bad seeds. The Eskimo solution was to have them disappear in the middle of the night.

Anyway, Putin now realizes that negotiation with the Kunlangeta is impossible. Washington wants regime change in Russia.

That ain't gonna happen without a nuclear exchange, and then who gives a fuck what "regime" presides over a post-nuclear Mad Max world.

Decent premise, Chinese Triads including Bolo Yeung as a particularly evil thug, British bad guys running drugs from Hong Kong to America. JCVD plays twins separated at 6 months after their parents are brutally murdered by fore-mentioned Triads goons and Brit wanker, who join together to avenge their parents.

247 The most worrisome thing about the Russian situation is that the russian military lines of defense appear to be collapsing in both the north and the south. The Russian milbloggers are going frantic over the probability that most of Kherson and most of Luhansk oblast could be lost in the coming days. If Putin is going to do something big to turn that around, he's got to do it soon. Nuking Luhansk and Donetsk out of spite, after they're lost, will infuriate his own side even more than it will the west.

The forces juking around Leman over the last 2 weeks were 500 Russian allied in the town vs 6000 or so Ukranians. Then the new troops from 50-something army brushed them aside and evacuated the speed bump Russian troops in the town and pulled back. This is fought over no man's land and the dumbest thing the Ukranians could do was get bogged down in it within range of the Russian artillery.

Not sure of the latest in Kherson since the incursion in Sept that was worked over several times by the Russians, but the north side of the region across the river is flat plains that have zero value for anyone to hold. And the political situation is fixed - Russia has a green light to take that entire region internally and in most world countries. So there is no need to panic and of course they won't. Arms supplies to U are done for a long time.

This is soon to be our downfall then. It is because we have a "Generation" of children now so involved with this Social Media, they are incapable of classic Western thought.

Instead, they are focused on how many "Likes" they get.
How sexy they are...how daring they are...how outrageous they are...vapid, mindless, drivel.

Adding NOTHING to civilization as a whole. The decline is on....the older generation appears unable to stay the fall.

The notion of a "limited nuclear exchange" is bat shit crazy. We rejected that shit way back during the Cold War.

One side pops of a nuke, even a tactical nuke. It then escalates to a full exchange, 'cause that's the only way it can play out.

Each side realizes, that once the nuclear balloon has gone up, the only way to avoid having their own missles and bombs destroyed is to launch them immediately.

well, what Russia had on the table when the party started was even better - Donbass states autonomy in Ukraine. Crimea is never on the table, that was several wars ago.

But now the ship for all 4 Donbass states has sailed, as Russia cant' count on Ukraine and the West keeping its word on a treaty and they are part of Russia.

If Ukraine begs they might be able to keep Odessa and the land route to that little sliver country on the West side in their rule with powerful assurances but again, who would trust Ukraine and the west with a treaty?

re storm surge - if you thought I was criticizing you about storm surge this afternoon, I'm sorry for it - it was not my intent. I was trying to give everyone a feel for the dangers of storm surge. My piece of Texas is inland a bit. Nevertheless storm surge was predicted to be higher than my first floor two times. I evacuated both times. Thankfully those storm surge predictions for my location were waaay too high. I've never had the Gulf of Mexico trying to enter my front door. Knock on wood.

Needless to say, but I will anyhow, the degree of difficulty of the two tracks were vastly different.

it will be depressing to watch Zelensky order his troops to die again for abandoned villages that other troops stood to the last to die for in the spring.

Take it back when his troops come on line. Most of the area the Ukrainians took earlier in the Kharkov area was in none of the claimed regions. I think in the last day they grabbed some abandoned villages that if the put troops in them the Russians will work them over from a distance with big guns.

In WWII this same area was retreated across a half a dozen times and nobody bothered to try and hold it because its worthless.

But the Russians are still advancing in the areas that they claim and don't have, and these offensives have not stopped it.

305 I always thought WW1 took all the elites by surprise. They all thought it would be a nice little war of maneuver where the professional armies would fight a few low casualty battles, people would make their careers, and eventually some of the countries would take a little hit and others would make a little gain. That's how European wars had gone to that point for decades and decades. The elites had no idea what to do but double down once it didn't go that way for them.

Little shitheel grade grubbers who would bitch, moan and argue for every last point on a quiz, test, or lab report. They did not grasp that they were to learn the material. Rather, they grasped that they needed to wheedle every last point they could so that their prospects for getting into a medical school were improved.
