Pride and Prejudice June 26, 2022

It has been a long tough week for most of us. It is incomprehensible to lose a Constitutional right. The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose whether to have an abortion. That all changed on Friday with the outrageous SCOTUS decision. Thought I would try to put a smile or two on faces out there by sharing some photos of my little collection of critters as they celebrate Pride without prejudice.

 It is Super Bowl Sunday once again. Thought I would salute all sorts of balls as they are used enrichment and fun in zoos and in my home. Enjoy some fun photos this super Sunday and may your team win. That said – I am more interested in the kitten and puppy bowls.

I hope your Christmas holiday was festive and safe. Today I am featuring the fun we have had over the years during Christmas. Some of you might recognize the gang that has already crossed that Rainbow Bridge – Madison the Elder cat, Benny and One-eyed Jack the dogs. Looking at these old photos always makes me smile. Thank you for following my Sunday blog. The Gang at Casa Lobo (Audrey, Roberta, Pete and Mr Pepe the dog) join me in wishing you all of the best in the coming year. More fun in ’21.

 This is day four of Hanukkah and I thought I wold share some of my Hanukah photos over the years. Some of you might remember doggies Benny and One-eyed Jack and of course grumpy Madison the cat who have all crossed that rainbow bridge. Our present gang includes Audrey, Roberta and Pete the cats with of course our newest arrival Mr. Pepe the dog. No animal was singed, harmed or abused in any way in the making of these photos – treats were involved. Family fun. Please continue to wear your masks, wash those hands and socially distant. The end of all of this madness is in sight.

It is day 191 for me being home during COVID19. Today I  address the changing upcoming season. Our shadows get longer as we head towards fall and winter. I thought you might enjoy seeing some shade being thrown by some of our zoo friends. I know it is not the contemporary meaning of ‘throwing shade’ but it did make me laugh. Stay safe, avoid crowds and wear a mask please. This Sunday’s photo montage is dedicated to the one and only RBG. At the bottom of today’s photos please note the dedicated chair in RBG’s name at our mutual high school auditorium. Brooklyn’s best – James Madison High School.

 Even though this is day 170 for me being home during COVID19 birthday celebrations must and should go on. Today is seven years since Audrey and Roberta came to live at Casa Lobo. They experienced different house mates over the years starting with Madison the Grumpy Cat and Benny the dog. Then came Jack the one-eyed dog, then Pete the cat and now of course, Mr Pepe the dog. They have gotten along with all and have brought great joy into my house. Here’s to many more years of fun with these two cats. They have their own facebook page with over 900 fans.

 It is definitely going to be challenge to come up with different topics for my Sunday photo blog while social distancing and quarantining during this COVID19 crazy time.Luckily I have my own little zoo here at home. Today’s montage features my cats Audrey, Roberta and Pete as they adjust to having nine pound Mr. Pepe around the house. Mr. Pepe has been with us for the past three months and all is hunky dory. The cats have learned to scramble when the tennis ball I throw to Mr Pepe comes their way. There is an understanding at meal times who gets fed first. There’s lots of sniffing and staring but by and large everybody is cool with this new living arrangement. Hope you are all safe and healthy.

Meet Pete! July 14, 2019

In my not very zealous quest to find a new senior dog to bring home I found Pete.(Note to my friends who are very sure I need another dog…I have not given up my doggie search but have just gotten side tracked for a bit). Pete is about one to two years old and walked into my friend’s yard and began to hang around. After a few free meals Pete got the idea that inside was much cozier than  outside. That same friend gave me my other two wonderful cats, Audrey and Roberta, almost six years ago. So how could I say no to this new offer. Pete moved in three weeks ago today and is fitting in perfectly. If you are on facebook, you can follow the daily adventures of Audrey, Robert and Pete.

Today is a big day in NYC. The 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots is being celebrated with a larger than ever parade down Fifth Avenue. It is going to be loud and proud. Today’s salute features photos from previous Pride parades as seen from my small perch at Casa Lobo. So much progress has been made but more needs to be done. Have fun and be safe. The top photo is One-eyed Jack from last years festivities. That little guy crossed over the rainbow bridge last November. Miss him every day.

One-eyed Jack – In Memorium December 22, 2018

It is with a heavy, broken heart that I tell you One-eyed Jack crossed the Rainbow Bridge this week. His health had taken a downward spiral in the past few months and it was time. I rescued Jack as a senior dog from Best Friends about two and a half years ago. He brought so much joy to my life. He was friendly with everyone. He loved kids, other dogs, street vendors, my apartment building staff and neighbors. Not a walk went by that someone did not come up to us to chat. Many New Yorkers would yell out ‘WISHBONE’ when they saw us (you might have to google that one). New Yorkers have a soft spot in their hearts for dogs, especially adorable one-eyed dogs. The one flaw he had was his insistence upon rising before daylight. We would traipse out into the dark of night and almost had the city to ourselves. Jack also adored my two cats, Audrey and Roberta and they adored him. I created a facebook page for them and we garnered close to 500 fans most who did not know me, but fell in love with Audrey, Roberta and One-eyed Jack. The house seems a lot emptier now and it will take awhile for a new normal to emerge. I have already been asked if I am going to get another dog. It is too soon to even contemplate that right now but if I do – I will adopt another senior dog as they need homes, aren’t nearly as cute as puppies but it is the right thing to do. Thank you all for caring about One-eyed Jack. It means a lot to me.
