I'm in train-ing.  Here,
I'm making a great
train with Percy.
Hello Everybody,

I've decided to be an athlete.

I got the idea in the back yard the other day.

Joey was playing out there with me.  She yelled, "Can't catch me!" and ran full-speed down the hill.

It looked like fun, so I said, "Can't catch me!" I zoomed at super-sonic speeds down the hill, around the mulberry tree, back up the hill through the gazebo (under the table and chairs) out, around the swings, around the cubby house and back to the clothesline.

By then Mum had caught Joey.  (Joey had to stop and wait for Mum to catch her.  Mum's really slow.)  And they had come back up the hill as well.

Then Joey yelled, "Can't catch me!" and started off down the hill again.

So I yelled, "Can't catch me!" and I did my big zoom around again.

Mum and Joey were both very impressed with my super-sonic zooming.

Mum said, "Who knew a dog so tubby could be such an athlete"

I'm an athlete!

I found out what athletes do.  They train.  So I got Percy to help me and we made a train.  Percy asked what we were supposed to do once we were in a train.  I didn't know.  So we had a nap.

That was a pretty good training session, but I could have an even longer one if I could persuade Bumpy to help too. Bumpy's not a very helpful cat, though, so my training sessions might just have to stay at two animals long.

I think being an athlete is fun.

See you later.
Licks and tail wags,
Miss Fantasia Dog
(call me Fanta.)

Mandy, one of the cats looking for a home.
Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

I need your help.

Well actually the cats staying with the Animal Welfare League, Queensland need your help.

But I need your help, too.

It was in the Brisbane Times today, that the AWLQ has far too many cats.  They've got so many, they're giving them away free.

So please, please, please, all minions, send your humans to go to the AWLQ to get a free cat, before Mum reads the news.

You know what will happen if Mum sees this.

When she saw the AWLQ had too many dogs, she went there and got Fanta.

When she saw Percy needed a home, she went and got him.

What do you think she'll do if she sees that heaps and heaps of cats need homes, and they're all free?

My home's full.

If yours isn't, go and get a cat.

Cats are good.  Sometimes we even pretend to like you.

Just go now. Get a cat.  Don't stop to think.  Don't ask your family members.  Don't think about food and vet bills.  Just get a cat.

Oh, Fanta and Percy just said do ask your family and think about food and vet bills, because the shelter doesn't want you to take the cat back when you've thought about it.

OK, ask your family. Think about the cost.  Then think about the love.  Think about the cat hair on your clothes reminding you all day that there's a wonderful cat waiting for you at home.

Then get the cat, fast. Before Mum reads the news.

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
I remain,

Mr Bumpy,
Supreme Feline Overlord.

PS You need a cat.  Get a cat.
