This is a public service announcement

Snopes, almost inevitably, suggests that variants on this shaggyspiky dogcat story have been around since at least 1964 (and quotes ones from '74 and '98 as well).

A Facebook friend has just posted the sad demise of his sister's alpacas from a 'mystery illness'.
Abode was in Leighton Buzzard.

I am totally without Clue in these matters but thought maybe somebody here might know something...

Oh, that's sad.  Alpacas are lovely.

Today I walked past a tabby & white cat which was sitting on a bin shouting at passers-by. I stopped for a chat and we became quite friendly. An hour later, going back the other way, she was still there and we had a lovely cuddle and conversation.

In the hour in between, I was with a client who has just got a 17 week Old English Bulldog puppy. He's gorgeous. He's just learned to give a paw and is so excited by his new trick that he kept doing it, even when he was lying on his back on the sofa.

From today Lidl are doing small spotter scopes for £24.99. Basic stuff, but more than adequate and a bargain for the price. I have one already.

Recently I signed up to catinaflat.com and tonight I went to meet my first potential booking. I will be doing two visits a day for Ralph, who is a beautiful creamy-with-goldy-stripes British shorthair sentient cushion.  Over new year and the first week of January, £100 for me, kerching.

Went to meet friends, yesterday, for a post-Xmas walk and lunch.

One of said friends has a Catalan Sheepdog, called Monty.

Monty is the coolest, cutest dog I have ever met, he let me walk him for about 6 miles and I loved every minute of it.

Today is being spent checking out where we might be able to adopt a Catalan sheepdog.

FWIW Monty looks like this, only a little patchier in his hair as he had to have a complete haircut, after being rescued:

I feel like Captain Kirk, on a brand new planet every day, a little like King Kong on top of the Empire State

Sorry, I don't know my way around this board - but I had to post this somewhere! From the BBC not-news section:

Noticed a fleck of birdshit on a new cordless drill I left on a bench in the workshop. I haven't had a bird fly in there for years, but after poking round a bit I found a complete nest in the cut-off end of an old stovepipe that goes out through the back wall.  I'll put a bit of fine-mesh wire netting over it and convert it to a nesting-box.

A friend across the pond has managed to snap a decent picture of a bald eagle, which he says regularly perches outside his office window.

Just heard on the radio that malefactors have poached a rhino for its horn in a zoo at Toiry, in the Paris area.
