We've had a lot of animals at our house over the last two weeks so I'm going to write a post on the ones we have taken photos of :D

We found this toad randomly in the garden. He/she posed for a couple of photos then I released him/her in the garden. (After letting him/her swim in the tiny pool we haven't bothered to empty yet :P)

This is a picture of Gracie digging a hole in the garden. She took over digging when she saw how much fun Iris was having. :D

This is a picture of Iris watching Gracie dig. We're still not sure what they were digging for but the hole is now twice that size and they're still digging... Thomas isn't pleased. :D :P

This is a picture of both my hamster cages combined. I needed two cages when Fatty was here. One cage was too small for three hamsters. :)

This is a picture of a mouse or musaraigne or mole baby we found in the garage. Iris had barked at him/her and he/she hid in the nearest hiding place. A dustbin lid handle. :P

This is a picture of a giant spider :) It's small compared to others we've seen, but it's still pretty big.

Well that's all for now. I'll be updating again soon :D

I didn't mean to sign out of gmail while we were talking D: I can't sign back in because its my mom's account! Shes busy at the moment.... Sorry...

I want to correct myself on the crying baby post. My mom told (Or rather, reminded) me that what they did was: they'd give the kid a lollypop or some candy, then before the kid ate it they would take it away from them, and take a photo while the kid cried. You can see it here:

Just so you don't think Jill is mean photographer :P
Making kids cry is often easy.

funny talking parrot

This talking parrot is very smart. I wish I had a pet bird. I would teach it to talk like this one.

Stranger in the Hood

Today when I was walking my dog Bando, halfway up the street I saw on the other side of the road a strange man. He was dressed in black. I never saw him before. I am home sick today, so it is day time and no one else was around.

We hid behind a mailbox. Bando just laid there, as lazy as can be. Nice watch dog! I pulled my cell phone out of my pocket and I called my mom. I told her who I saw. She told me to quietly come home.

So me and Bando ran and the guy never noticed. I got home safe but locked all the doors anyways.

Sometimes cell phones can protect you better than your dog!

Jill Greenberg.

There's this photographer named Jill Greenberg who does some really cute photos of animals. She's so great I decided to make this whole post about her photography.
She has a really cool site called The Manipulator so please have a look at it. These are some of her monkey pictures:

They are actually real monkeys. She's brilliant if you ask me.

She also did some work with crying children, which a lot of people found Cruel.

Parents would take their kids to her studio and they would tell the kids that their parents had left them. Then they'd take photos of the kid crying. After that their parents would come back in and the kid would get a cookie or some candy.
I personally don't think that is that mean. I find this worse:

It's suppose to be art.
They put some jellyfish DNA in her so she'd glow. Which I find a LOT worse then making a kid cry.

Anyway, I got to get on with neopets stuff as usual. I'll post again soon :D

Fishies at The Georgia Aquarium

The Georgia Aquarium is a great place to go for a family time. It has whale sharks, beluga whales, spider crabs, sea horses, jelly fish, stingrays and more.

Here is the best part: You get to pet baby cow nose stingrays and southern stingrays. Some people are afraid of stingrays now because of what happened to Steve Erwin. But, their barbs (the stinging part) are clipped, so it is perfectly safe for you to pet them. Plus, they really don't attack unless they are threatened.

Also you get to pet baby hammer head sharks. The baby hammer heads are about seven inches big. They do not bite. All of them have been trained, so they won't attack visitors.

Here is a Spider Crab. They are SO WEIRD looking. They don't move as quickly as a real spider does. But they are really funny. Some of them just sit there all day.

The layout :D

Like the layout? It took me a good few hours but I'm finally done :D
Do you think I should change the background? please tell me if you want to change anything :)
I have to go to bed now. :P

Autumn is here!

It's already starting to look like Autumn here in France :D It's my favourite time of the year so I'm really happy :P

That sounds dreadful about your cat D: My cat is trying to teach us a lesson for bringing other people's dogs home and is hiding in the woods. We've seen him though. And He's done this before so we know the drill.

Sorry I haven't posted over the last couple of days because (as usual) I have been doing NeoPets graphics. I also just started a new guild (A.K.A. Club) about talking with other members and playing games and stuff.
I'm also trying to save up some Neopoints to get a paint brush for one of my pets. A paint brush changes the colour of your pet. The one I'm aiming for will make my pet look like this:

They're so adorable :D

My little sister Mari took my dogs for a walk in the woods with my step-father and they found this rather odd conker shell that had 26 mini conkers in it! I took a picture of them because I find them pretty. :D

I took some pictures of my animals I haven't shown you before. Here they are:

this is Dookie. My older hamster, who was bought with my old hamster Potcha who sadly died :S But Dookie's still happy :D
and this is my little sisters' mouse. Fudge. She ran away for a couple of days then had babies weeks later. My little sister Mari let the baby mice free in the back of the garden (which really wasn't far enough) and they came back into the house and it was an invasion of mice. Now there's only one mouse in the house. We made humane mouse traps and let the mice we captured out into the forest. :D Mari had another mouse but she got a disease and sadly died :S

I actually saw the mouse we can't catch today. I was sitting on the couch with my two dogs Gracie and Iris and the mouse came running out from under one of the heaters into the middle of the room, then circled around a chair leg and ran away again. I think it was headed for my hamster cage in the other room to steal some food :P

Anyway I must go now. There are members of my guild waiting for me :D and I have to update my other blog.
I hope you're well. How have you been doing while I was gone?
