...are animals. Lots of animals. More animals than most people could imagine sharing their space with. Only crazy people like us would think this was a desiable situation.
Our four dogs (seen here posing in front of our Christmas tree) and seven cats are quite happy today. The dogs got presents (tug toys that squeak – everything a dog could desire) and everybody got lots of yummy food. At right, the dogs are (clockwise starting with the black-and-white border collie): Racer, Mo'i, Lea, and Miki. The angelic-looking kitty framed by the wreath is Halala Pala, affectionately known as the “Ha”. He is the king of deception; his angelic looks conceal a devil on loan from Hades. Curled up asleep is Maka Lea, who also looks angelic and innocent – but who actually is a well-practiced bully that rules the feline hierarchy here with unrelenting claw and vigilance.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all 12 of my regular readers!
