Just wanna share how Bandit did today. Well, he is doing good as usual. I thank God that he is as healthy as can be. He had been a little bit hardheaded this morning though because when him and I went out to the backyard which we usually do every morning when I wake up to have him go to the bathroom (potty or poopoo) while I am feeding Flash (horse). Bandit always get so excited everytime I start wearing my coat ( for the cold), boots and bonnet because he knew that it's time to go out to the backyard and feed Flash then he could sneak some crumbs from Flash's senior glow grain. So, we went out together. I had him go potty and poopoo, he is mostly good at doing this when I told him so. But then, he started going down by the creek which is not really that far from our backyard's boundary. I started calling him but he was pretending not to hear me call his name and he just continued to roam around the area, just glad that the creek was dry and no water was flowing. Yeah, he was acting a bit hardheaded today so I just left him and went back to the house. After a couple of minutes I saw him running back to the house as he found out that I was no longer in the backyard.

I was surprised as I watch this news. It's unbelievable how an 80 lb boxer drove a man's car. The man parked his car and left his dog inside the car but when he came back to the parking lot he couldn't find his car anymore and thought somebody might have stolen his car only to find out that the culprit was his own dog. How did this dog do it? Play the video and find out.
I found out that my birthday animal is an Aaaaaa, he,he hard to say it because it might sound so bad BUT then was satisfied to know at how it described my personality because most of them are quiet true. My birthday falls between December 01 to 16th and here's what it said about me.
If you are an Ass : A very loyal and sweet person. Your loyalty can never be doubted. You are quite honest and sincere when it comes to your attitude towards working. You are a very simple person, indeed. Absolutely hassle free, humble, and down-to-earth!! That explains the reason why your friends cling on to you! You have a good taste for clothes. If your wardrobe is not updated with what is trendy, you sure are depressed. Popular and easy-going. You have a little group of dignified friends, all of them being quality-personified.
Now, I wanna forward this tag to my co bloggers namely; Gamay,
Michelle, Resebel, and Lerlyn.
LOOK UP YOUR BIRTHDAY AND SEE WHAT YOU ARE. FORWARD ON TO PEOPLE THAT YOU THINK THAT WOULD GET A KICK OUT OF THIS... INCLUDING THE PERSON WHO SENT IT TO YOU. PUT YOUR BIRTHDAY ANIMAL IN THE SUBJECT LINE AND PASS IT ON.
When cats rub their heads up against you- an affectionate activity called "bunting"- they are actually tapping into special scent glands located on their cheeks and near the temples to mark you as belonging to them. This friendly gesture- which is much better than being marked with urine- could be considered the feline equivalent of a promise ring. Tiger does not only rub her head against me but she licks a lot like a dog. I think this is her way of showing her affection and making a mark of belongingness which I really don't like that much when she starts licking my skin because her tongue is very rough.
Watch the tail for your cat's mood swings. When your cat's tail is held right up, she's happy to see you and wants to be greeted. Cats raise their tails like flags when they feel confident and alert. As a cat's mood drops, so does the tail.
Consider your cat's tail as a barometer. When your cat explores, read a high tail as bravery and a low tail as uncertainty or fear. When your kitty arches her back with a skunklike tail, she is saying, "Please pet me, now. I'm in the mood for love." As her tail lowers with waving or twitching, back off. She's getting annoyed and is putting up the "no trespassing" sign. Leave her be!
New York-A skittish kitten that scampered out of its carrier on a subway platform has been found after 25 days in the underground tunnels.
Transit workers tracked down 6-month old Georgia under midtown Manhattan Saturday. Police reunited her with owner Ashley Phillips, a 24-year-old Bronx librarian.
After hearing that the black cat might have been spotted below Lexington Avenue and East 55th Street, track workers Mark Dalessio and Efrain LaPorte went through the area making "meow" sounds.
Georgia responded, and they found her cowering in a drain between two tracks.
Georgia had lost some weight and scratched her nose but was otherwise unhurt. She had disappeared while Phillips was bringing her home from a veterinarian visit last month.

Meet Elwood, a 2 year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix was crowned The World's Ugliest Dog in 2007.
Elwood, dark colored and hairless—save for a mohawk-like puff of white fur on his head—is often referred to as "Yoda," or "ET," for his resemblance to those famous science fiction characters.
"I think he's the cutest thing that ever lived," said Elwood's owner, Karen Quigley, a resident of Sewell, New Jersey.
Quigley brought Elwood out to compete for the second year at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair. Elwood placed second in 2006.
Most of the competing canines were also Chinese Crested, a breed that features a mohawk, bug eyes and a long, wagging tongue.
Quigley said she rescued Elwood two years ago. "The breeder was going to euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell," said Quigley.
"So ha ha, now Elwood's all over the Internet and people love him and adore him."
Beyond the regal title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $1,000 reward for his owner.
ARIZONA – A dog named Buddy probably doesn't realize how lucky he is that his owner was able to get replacement tickets. See, Buddy chewed up a pair of Superbowl tickets that were delivered to his Arizona home.
They were delivered through the mail slot, and Buddy, who usually likes to chew his toys, made confetti out of the package. Inside, two $900 tickets to Superbowl XXXXII.
Owner Chris Gallagher says he couldn't believe what he saw when he came home earlier this week.
The black lab had mistaken the package for – well whatever he thought was in there must have seemed to good to leave un-chewed. Gallagher says he wasn't sure what to do. But after a quick phone call his fears were swept away – replacements were available.
And that's lucky because Gallagher says he couldn't afford the $1800 tickets in the first place – they were for a friend. This time, the expensive stubs will be waiting at will call – far from Buddy's hungry eyes.
