Luigi Demands More Hay, The Ridiculous Photo of the Week and a Close Call Between Archie & Wasabi and Almost a New Grand DOG at the Lazy Vegan!
Wasabi loves to try to chew the laces of my running shoes!Ever since Luigi found out that he's earning money from his famous YouTube video he's been "asking" (hee-hawing!) for more hay! It all started one morning when I fed the charming boys at their usual 5 a.m. breakfast time. The flake of hay was a bit thinner than usual, but I didn't think they'd notice. Well, they did...particularly Luigi, who stood in the corner of the corral facing the house and let loose his best (but barely audible) hee-haw about an hour later. "More hay!" he seemed to be hee-hawing (saying). "More hay...after all, I'm paying for it!" I made the mistake of rushing out with more hay, and for three consecutive mornings the same thing happened. It was never Paco hee-hawing - just Luigi. All of this fame has gone to his head! Hee, hee. In other Lazy Vegan news, we had a very scary heads-up moment between Archie & Wasabi the other morning. Wasabi was in her "kitchen playground" and I was doing my hair in the bathroom when suddenly I heard a loud "thunk" noise. I rushed out to the kitchen just in time to see Archie in the classic cat predator pose, standing on the open window sill, looking down at Wasabi. I could not believe it!! My timing was perfect and I caused a big scene and Archie fled. I had never thought about him being able to leap up so high - and it really hadn't entered my mind that much about the possibility of him being interested in Wasabi as prey. I've only seen him once since that event - he's been staying away. It is very sad, but now the neighbor and I are discussing whether or not they should try to take him with them when they move in a couple of weeks. I am heartbroken, but also realistic - I can't risk the safety of our precious rabbit! And, lastly, I came very close to being a grandmother this week...to a dog! Karina and Nick had a stray dog appear on their doorstep a couple of nights ago. He was a beautiful dog and looked just like a Belgian Malinois - similiar to a German Shepard but smaller and supposed to be even smarter...it is the breed of dog that the military uses a lot in their operations, and, in fact, was the rumored dog used to get Osama Bin Laden. They spent the weekend with the dog with the intent to take it in to the vet to check for a microchip I.D. - but it was discovered that the dog actually belonged to a nearby neighbor who was VERY excited to be reunited!
Such a sweet face. I'm sad they weren't able to keep him, but happy that he was reunited with his family!
This is a Belgian Malinois, above, jumping out of a military aircraft!
Bravo looking for trouble.
All the hoof trimmings! I pick them up so Bravo doesn't try to eat them.
