South African Ranger Lion Whisperer

This came to us in the form of an email. It is a series of photos of a ranger who's job is to prevent poaching around the wildlife refuge area of Lanseria, South Africa.

According to an article on the web: "His charm works with hyenas and lions too."
According to M: "His charm works with women too."

Enjoy the pictures of the Lion Whisperer

PS: M wants to adopt a lion now... Yes, she's aware it comes without The Ranger ;)
And to this, I have to say, "Yeah, sure M. As soon as you get control of the felines in this house, go for it!" BOL

Size Don't Matter

It really doesn't, and I, Twinkie, can prove it. Watch...

 Yeah, aha, you got it.  It's MY dog food. You two can only look.

 You can act all innocent, Pedrito, but we all know what you're thinking.
 You too, Frankie.

Nom, nom. It's yummy! Delicious!

 Ugh! Is he still there? He's a persistent lil' one.

 H-okay! All done.

 As soon as I turn my back . . .

Go on, silly chihuahua puppy. It's all yours. BOL

This was just one demonstration that proves that size is irrelevant. Tiny dogs RULE!!!

Best Pet Hair Remover: Pledge Fabric Sweeper For Pet Hair | A Product Review

Pledge Fabric Sweeper For Pet Hair

There's a total of 11 of us living under one roof. Seven cats and four dogs. It's inevitable; our house quickly fills up with hair. Frequent vacuuming and maintenance helps, but our humans are always on the lookout for the best pet hair remover, and, so far, and for a few months now, there's one winner: The Pledge Fabric Sweeper For Pet Hair.

This pet hair remover, has two lint-collecting  rollers that grab, lift, and trap the hair inside. It's easy to use, as long as the fabric has no slack. It works really well on surfaces such as: couches and pillows, bedding, chairs, and so on. I repeat, it does not work as well on loose fabric.

We've been through numerous pet hair removal products, including the popular pet hair rollers, several sponges, etc, but the Pledge Fabric Sweeper does not compare in ease of use and cost. It also saves time, since you don't have to keep finding the edge of the sticky paper. 

Another of the best features of the Pledge pet hair remover is that ... despite what the manufacturer says, IT IS REUSABLE! It is also inexpensive compared to the rest of this category of products.

In October of last year, Consumer Reports, gave the Pledge Fabric Sweeper For Pet Hair an excellent review confirming our experience. We've been using ours since July of 2010.

There are videos on youtube that show you how to clean out your Pledge pet hair remover, even though it's pretty simple to figure out.

New Family Member Introduction

It's A Boy!
I just recently got a new baby bro. His name is Noble and he's six years old. He's a thoroughbred and he's approximately 16.1 hands tall. 

Noble is in training to become a jumper
He's already clearing 4.9 by a foot.

Noble is training my sissy how to. . .
You get the picture.

As soon as my sissy trains him a bit better, I'm going to resume my riding lessons at the barn. 

Welcome to our family, Noble!

Bandit-Masked Intruders

We had some not-so-welcome company inside our garage last night.


One of the raccoons was missing an eye. He looked really scary. What's even more hair-raising is that raccoons are adaptable feeders, which means they will eat just about anything, from fish, mice, trash, tiny dogs . . . 

Raccoons are troublemakers and dangerous. They can also weigh 25lbs or more. Luckily, they're nocturnal, so during the day, all of us small dogs get to roam around our yard and take in the sun's rays.

They wreak havoc frequently at our home. They eat all our fish from the pond, attack the chickens in the middle of the night, and sometimes they even manage to open our food bins and eat all the dog food!

I do not like raccoons and that's final. Now, I'm sure you'll all believe me when I tell you that M has even raised a baby raccoon, but that was before my time.

These raccoons were lucky M was here. Had I been watching the house on my own, I would have taught them a lesson they'd never forget!

Friday's Funnies

Every time I share my dog training tips with y'all, I stress the fact that we, the cats and dogs, rule the household. We outsmart all humans. That's why my dog training tips are aimed at my good furiends, and NOT their pawrents. To start out the weekend on a funny note, and to take off the stress of this past week, allow me to prove my point by sharing a video that proves just how much smarter we are than humans.

TGIF Video!

Just ignore the canned laughter and add your own laugh track

We Interrupt Our Blogging Because . . .

We're celebrating. It's M's peanut's 

21st birthday!

Daphne Avalon*

And many more . . .  la la la (and I don't mean the cervezas)
We all love our human sissy!
She often stops by for TLC, lots of petting, and sometimes, she takes us to spend the night with her at USC where she studies.

Monday Funnies

Mondays are rough on most of us, so I wanted to start out our week with a few jokes. In order to stick with my blog's main theme, dogs, I decided to use Mother In Law jokes and substitute Pedro, my nutty, devilish, obnoxious and extremely annoying baby bro.

Dog Jokes!

1. Q:  What do you do if you miss your baby bro??
A:  RELOAD, AND TRY AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

2. Two dogs were in a pub.  One says to her pack mate, "My baby bro is an angel."  Her friend replies, "You're lucky.  Mine is still alive."

3. Q:  How do you stop your baby bro from drowning?

A:  Take your paw off his head.

4. Q:  Why do they bury annoying baby bros 18 feet down, when everyone else is buried 6 feet down?

A:  Because, deep down, they really are very nice puppies.

5. Q:  Why would you rather deal with a vicious dog than your own baby bro?

A:  A vicious dog eventually lets go!

6. "My baby bro was bitten by a rabid dog yesterday."
"How is she now?"
"She's fine, but the dog died."

7. Q:  The difference between outlaws and baby bros?

A:  Outlaws are Wanted!!

 These "jokes" are dedicated to my furiends who "suffer" from the addition of a new pack member. I'm still working on my idea for a SIBLING EXCHANGE PROGRAM (hear me Fiona, Thunder, Phantom, Bunny and family . . .  ?)

Have a great week!

Blue Heeler Break

Got some fun blue heeler pictures of my barn friends, the rescue dogs, Holly and Maddie.

I hope you enjoy Sunday's Blue Heeler Pictures!
[The little confused pink dot is the comic relief]

 Check out the athleticism of this ol' girl.
Maddie, straining to grab the ball mid-air, is a senior dog. She's almost 12 years old.
And many more good years, furiend!

 Maddie and the rest of her rescue dog siblings, obviously a rather mixed pack, having "a ball".

 Boomer, the chihuahua attached to Maddie's tail . . . well that's where he spends his time when they play ball. Yes, always.


 The two blue heelers have had enough for now.
[And the pink dot moves in, look closely]

He he [the coast is clear]. Enjoy, brave chihuahua puppy . . .

Have a lovely Sunday!
