A blog about animals and the ways people interact with them.

I took last year's doggie holiday cards off the refrigerator before putting up this year's but stopped for a minute to contemplate what a mostly blank refrigerator looks like. The previous owners must have thought this variety of refrigerator very elegant but I find it useless. Magnets won't adhere to the surface; instead, every spot of water or snool shows. It will look much better when I get those cards back up.
Because of postage being up and the economy down, these past few years haven't brought as many members in the card exchange as there used to be. I'm happy to have enough cards to cover some of that boring blank refrigerator just down far enough to keep them out of easy reach of Bignosepokes. As long as I don't splatter spaghetti sauce on the cards, they should remain safe from Miro.
This is just to add a photo of something prettier than a blank refrigerator. I bought a new pet plant yesterday to replace the cyclamen that died. Usually my indoor plants grow to the size of small cars because I can't bring myself to prune them. At least an African violet will stay small.
