God made the cat in order that man might have the pleasure of caressing the lion. ~ Fernand Mery

How sweet is that! And I would certainly love to caress a lion - my favorite animal.

Mine too, Lisa! (Male) Lions, groundhogs, and Old English Sheepdogs. :) I made a list when I was 13 or 14 of thinsg I wanted to do in my lifetime, and "Pet a lion" was near the top. :)

Sweet Stuffed! Just the perfect "lion!"

Me, too - me, too!! Did you see the "Nature" episode (on PBS) where Timothy Dalton was able to get near some wolves? Something he always wanted to do. With me, it's lions. Oh, that fuzzy head!! :D
As for sheepdogs, I don't see them hardly at all. I remember "My Three Sons", and their dog. The breed seemed more popular back then, but I always wanted one of those, too. The fuzzy head again!

Where does the groundhog fit into this, though? :D

The full episode is on YouTube, Lisa. I bookmarked it last night and will try to watch it soon. Yes...the fluffy head! :)

And no, hardly anyone seems to have Sheepdogs, and they don't seem to be on shows or even commercials as much as years ago. Bobby Kennedy had one, and Paul McCartney too. My mom told me about the one on "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" when I first got into Sheepdogs, and she made sure I watched--and owned--the old Disney Shaggy Dog movie too. 'Maybe more of a 60s trend? I don't know. But ohhhh, someday when I have the space and money to feed and take care of one properly!!! :)

you and your kitty are ridiculously adorable!

my aunt used to own a sheepdog. i love them, but it was a crabby animal.... although to be fair, i can't imagine it enjoyed me at 10 years old trying to dress it...haha...i was all 'let me love you!'....

as I was about to sleep last night, I was thinking of your blog, and then I thought 'I wonder if she's heard of a blog called Posy....' It's not been updated in a while, but I think you would enjoy the images and inspiration! It's lovely!

Val said...

Amy, that's so funny, and I can picture you doing it--chasing some poor dog around with an armful of clothes. :)

And thank you. :) I've been having some minor health issues, and it's also 87-or-so degrees here today, so you can guess how "ridiculously adorable" I feel. But/So--thank you! :)

And I looooooooooooooooooove Jane and her blog Posy! I miss it so much. I could read it all day. :) Thank you for thinking of me. ♥
