Kitty Stand Off
There is no kitty, who can stand off longer than me! Something about a kitty who won't run. Some where back in my memories, I know enough to stay clear.
Allex Michael: Found starving in a garbage dump, Ebbey used to know there is no fiercer creature than a garbage dump cat. It is hidden some where in her memories. However, after 2 years of captivity and domestic living, Ebbey can't seem to remember exactly why.
A cat was recently sitting outside a neighbor's home, where two dogs also live. As Ebbey approached, the cat stood her ground and quickly began arching her back. Ebbey stalked the cat within 4 feet, but would go no closer. Unfortunately she would not leave the stand off either. So I had to drag her away. Of course the cocky kitty then stalked us for a while...which led to more Ebbey dragging.

Tick Taxi Service
Been very busy chasing bunnies, kitties and mousies. Sorry it's been a while since I posted. Will try to catch up. With all the rain and now heat, I've been bringing home these round little bugs after almost every walk. Luckily they never bite, just drop off inside the house.
Allex Michael: Ticks don't seem to like dogs who eat garlic. Fed a whole clove each daily, neither Ebbey (85 pounds) or her Rottweiler roomate (90 pounds) have been bitten. Though both seem to be providing a tick taxi service into the house. The unfed parasites then crawl up the furniture and curtains awaiting an ususpecting meal. Luckily all humans in the house also eat garlic, so no bites or Lyme disease yet.

Rat Sized Raccoon
This was the largest mouse I've ever seen. After over 30 seconds of stalking, the creature refused to run. Only then did I discover, it was another fake animal.
Allex Michael: Though quite realistic, a newly placed raccoon lawn ornament was only about the size of a small rat. But in the dark, placed under a tree, it was easy to mistake for some kind of critter.
