Tiger's first close encounter with August

Wow! I could not believed and still wondering when I saw Tiger went near August and start sniffing August's tail while she was eating. She acted so brave as if she's not scared of August anymore. That was the first time that Tiger had a close encounter with her. As usual August started growling at her when she noticed that Tiger was sniffing her tail. That was really unusual for Tiger to do that. I think, she is a grown up kitty now and no longer a whimp. Tiger always get beaten up by August but now August had settled down being mean with her.

Hubby and I are still hoping that one day these two cats will be friends and will enjoy each others company.

The day is gone so fast...

Flash is enjoying his breakfast, he always look forward when I feed him. He neighs everytime he sees and hears me going out through the back door.
I don't know what kind of plant is this but one thing I found out when I came here in the US is that most plants blossom their flowers first before the leaves start growing back again during Spring.
Another plant that I really don't know what it is, they just grow in our backyard like other bushes do.

The day just ended so quickly, it was a nice day today because the weather was so warm, the sky is so clear and the sun was so bright. I liked the weather today because I really felt the heat of the sun on my skin. I took the opportunity to enjoy the warmth of the sun as I sat outside by the deck with the sun shining directly on me. oh, it felt so good! Finally able to feel it's heat which I rarely do because I always feel th cold wind even from the very start of the Spring but today it was different and I really appreciate how the weather got so warm. Bandit was there too sitting beside me seeking for my attention. I took some photos while I was outside enjoying the nice weather.

First Dog to Launched in Orbit

Laika, a Mongrel dog (Barker in Russia) was the first dog to launch in orbit. She was once a stray dog in Moscow and was selected from an animal shelter. Originally named "Kudryavka" (Russian : little curly-haired one) and was renamed Laika. after undergoing training with other two dogs, she was selected to be the occupant of the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2 in November 3, 1957.

The 1,120-lb. Sputnik 2 was outfitted with scientific gauges, life-support systems, and padded walls, but was not designed for recovery. Laika was supported inside the satellite by a harness that allowed some movement and access to food and water. Electrodes transmitted vital signs including heartbeat, blood pressure and breathing rate.

Sputnik 2 was not designed to be retirevable, so Laika had always been intended to die. Dr. Dimitri Malashenkov, one of the scientists behind the Sputnik 2 mission, revealed that Laika had died five to seven hours after launch from overheating and stress.


Good Morning Everyone!!!!

black cat morning

It's great to wake up in the morning and be glad to enjoy another day of our lives. How's your morning everyone? Mine is good, I woke up at around 7 am. Bandit got up too and was happy to see me. He always sleeps in our bedroom. I usually let him go out in the mornings after I went to the bathroom to let him go potty too. He is so good when it comes to controlling his urges to go to the bathroom. He is well potty trained but have to be mindful always of him that he needs to go out every now and then to have him go to the bathroom. Tiger stayed in the bedroom and I think still asleep. Bandit went back to our bedroom too as hubby is still asleep too. I'm here infront of my laptop writing my blog while August is laying down in rocking chair asleep.

I hope everyone will have a great day ahead!


What does AKC registration really mean?

The American Kennel Club (AKC) is the oldest purebred dog registry in the US. AKC registered more than 1.3 million purebred dogs and more than 550 thousand litters in its 145 breeds in 1997. The top 10 breeds (Labrador Retriever, Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Poodle, Beagle, Dachshund, Cocker Spaniel, Yorkshire terrier, and Pomeranian) accounted for more than 560 thousand of the total individual registrations.

Most people who breed purebred dogs claim some affiliation with a registry as a seal of quality for their puppies. Many use that affiliation as a marketing tool, but buyers often learn the hard way that an AKC puppy purchased from a pet store or a backyard breeder is highly unlikely to be of the same caliber as an AKC registered puppy purchased from a reliable breeder.

How does registration works? When puppies are whelped, the breeder registers the litter; AKC sends a blue slip for each puppy in the litter; the breeder signs the puppy over to the buyer, who then registers the individual puppy in his name and is sent a registration certificate. Cost of litter registration is $20; cost of individual registration is $10.

AKC registration means that the parent dogs were registered, that an irresponsible breeder lied or was mistaken about the breeding that produced the litter, or that an unprincipled breeder was commiting outright fraud to raise the value of the puppies. Registration itself is neither a guarantee nor even an indication of quality. No one examines the parent dogs or the puppies to see if they really qualify for registration, and AKC depends on breeders to be honest when applying for a litter registration. Some unethical breeders apply for registration forms for puppies that have died or were never born, and they then use these certificates on puppies of doubtful parentage.

To complicate matters further, a female dog can be impregnated by several male dogs during her fertile cycle; if the dogs are not watched closely and appropriately confined, some puppies in the litter may have different fathers than other puppies. Thus, in kennels where males and females of different breeds typically run together, mixed breed puppies can actually be registered as purebred. This is not uncommon with puppy mill dogs or with backyard breeders who have several breeds, and has led to many complaints that the puppy purchased as a particular breed has grown into a dog that looks like something else.

AKC will investigate and may revoke the litter registration if the puppies or adult dogs do not have the appearance of the breed they are registered as. In the past, proof was difficult to obtain, but the advent of DNA testing has given inspectors a new weapon. If there is doubt about the parentage of a puppy, the AKC inspector can require a DNA test.


Bandit enjoys Lexi's company

Here are some photos of Bandit and Lexi playing together. Bandit enjoys it a lot when Lexi is at home every other week. He always look forward when Lexi is back in the house. He loves to play with her so much. Bandit is always careful when he plays with Lexi to make sure that he won't hurt her and Lexi is having so much fun all the time. She is so hyper, sometimes Bandit has to teach her not to be too rough when she plays with him because her teeth are so sharp that I guess Bandit gets hurt when Lexi plays with him. So Bandit has to growl at her sometimes but never hurt her.
