Christmas Pet Blogging

Meet Max and Snowball. Max is the dacshund and Snowball is the Siamese kitten. Both came to me on Christmas about 42 years ago and they’ve held up pretty well, don’t you think?

Snowball got in a fight with a puppy of ours in about 1965 and came out the worse for it, losing an eye and part of an ear, but he’s a tough dude and is still ready to play with Max, who has tolerated Snowball’s taunts with Teutonic pride lo these many years.

Oh, yeah… this is my first blog picture with my new Nikon Coolpix digital camera that I got for Christmas. Thanks Mom and Dad! I’m still getting the hang of it, but look out…here comes photoblogging with Mustang Bobby! (I don’t think NTodd has anything to worry about.)

I plan to enroll Snowball in the Friday Cat Blogging pantheon, doing all the silly things kittens do. The nice thing about having a stuffed one is that they’re really easy to pose, and if you feed them a little cotton, they’re yours for life.
