Charles the Monarch

Charles the Monarch

This is just a fun post. I don’t normally post camera pix or ones of me – but this one is different. We attended the Old Dominion University game Saturday and I got to pose with this famous dog. His owner grooms him to look like ODU’s mascot – a monarch lion. What made him famous was that a few months ago he was spotted walking down a street near our zoo and the 911 dispatchers were getting calls of a baby lion on the loose. So if interested here’s the story

Weekly Photo Challenge – Companionable

How do I look after my bath and brushing?? This is Rosie (or Rosebud – as I call her) – she can be skittish at times but she is as loyal and sweet as they come. She is part shepherd and something else. We adopted her from a kennel when she was 4 months and have had her 12 years. Her previous owners wanted her to be put down because they could not afford minor surgery on her paw. The vet did the surgery and kept her in the kennel. We lost our black lab to seizures around the same time and agreed to take her in. So glad we did.
