Saturday Night Fever

Well, not really.
It's been a difficult week here. First, that darn beta fish died. Mickey had been around for about four years, getting coos and tank pets and stuff. I had to attend the burial at sea.... The Mom was crying, so I had to dry her face off and remind her that there's still those in need of love here.
Then, I heard today, that I am now officially an AUNT. Yup, the kid went ahead and adopted a ...... kitten. Apparently it's a young (tasty?) version of a cat. She gave it some sort of a goofy name too - it's Wilma of Wilma and Betty. I think Wilma is coming over for that day soon where there's lots of food and they all act like absolutely none of it can be fed to us. I'll scope her out then and let everyone know if she is, um, tasty.
The other kid is home for a few days. What that really means is that there's three or four people sneaking me good stuff today. Tonight's special treat..... chicken, gravy, a little corn, some mashed potatoes and some cheese. I see where they snuck in some of that dry stuff that usually ends up in our bowls. Hey, even that stuff isn't bad when you put gravy on it.
Is there anything tastier than gravy?

Hi Dakota! I'm Holly, a rescued Alaskan Malamute. I like gravy too. But since I'm on a diet I don't get any real human food. My mom does have a great yogurt/pumpkin treat recipe that I absolutely love! And she says it't healthy and low fat/low calorie. I'm looking forward to the upcoming food day too. Hopefully my humans will forget my diet just for ONE day!

Is the kitten going to be living in the bowl formerly occupied by Mickey?

Mmmmmm, sounds delicious! Hey, come check out the eBay auction for our Husky rescue on my blog! And my mom and other volunteers will be giftwrapping for donations at Borders in Gaithersburg on Black Friday.

I'm thinkin that KITTIES are better than gravy?!?!?!?!?

Although if you put gravy on a Kitty, I think we may have a winner!
