AwwwMondays-Puppy-AvatarWith our household of critters having expanded to include three cats and a dog, I thought it fitting to join a meme related to pets. After searching around, I came across Awww….. Mondays. The one rule is: “Post a picture that makes you say Awww…. and that’s it.” Every photo seemed to feature a pet and so the meme is a perfect fit!

For my fourth pet post, I’m going to introduce you to our dog, Barnaby. As I search through the multitude of photos we’ve collected of him over the years, one trait that stands out is Barnaby’s tolerance. No matter what photo pose my husband and I ask of him, he seems to accept it. There have been photos of him at our dog club where big dogs of various breeds towered over him. There have been photos of him with strays cats to whom we have offered food and temporary shelter. There have been photos of him at all heights nestled into the family collection of plush animals. In this particular photo, taken in 2008, we had asked him to act like a bosom buddy to my first two guinea pigs.

The last of my guinea pigs having died in 2013, this photo serves as a sweet reminder of how often Barnaby accepts our other critters as members of the family. When it comes to our guinea pigs, he used to sniff them, listen to their wheeks, and even sometimes tried playing with them. Due to size differences, we always supervised such interactions. Yet one of Barnaby’s other wonderful traits is that he’s always a gentle dog, with whom our guinea pigs were always safe. Here’s to Barnaby!

For my first three posts, I’m going to introduce you to our cats in order of arrival. Second up is Bootsie! From the moment I met her as a feral in a Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) colony, she stole my heart. What photo of her to pick for this meme proved tough. There is one of her outside when she allowed herself for a brief moment to play. When my husband saw that photo, he agreed for me to pick her home. There is also one of her feeling content in our office chair. It’s the first photo I posted to update local colony feeders of her progress. For this meme, I ended up picking the below photo. This photo won our beautiful Bootsie second prize in a TNR contest.

For my first three posts, I’m going to introduce you to our cats in order of arrival. First up is Cinder! From the moment we met her at the shelter, Cinder liked to explore. When we finally brought her home, Cinder rejected the idea that a new cat should get kept in contained room to allow time to settle into a new environment. Cinder instead wanted to explore the rest of our house. In this photo, she’s discovered by plush dragons on top of my bookcase shaped like a dollhouse. I’ll leave caption ideas to visitors!
