Cool stuff we've seen so far!

Over the past few days when we've been out on our walks, we seen some pretty cool wildlife. Not unusual wildlife, but cool nonetheless.

This morning we saw a Blue Jay. Very common bird in most of the US. We didn't get a photo, but found this free one on the Internet. The one we saw in real life was sooooo blue!!! Very handsome.

We didn't know this, but learned from Wikipedia this morning that the Blue Jay can learn to mimic human speech and also copy the cries of local hawks so well that it is sometimes difficult to tell what type of bird it is is if you are just ID'ing from sound. Cool! Maybe I should try and meow like a cat, and see where that gets me, BOL!!

We've also seen a lot of hawks around here. You may remember that we had a hawk that frequented our yard back in Indiana - Harry the Hawk. That's a photo of Harry with his mouse prey in our former backyard.

Ironically, the Blue Jay is frequent prey of the Hawk. Wonder if that's why we're suddenly seeing both this week? Interesting....sure hope that Blue Jay doesn't have to look into funeral costs, BOL!

There aren't many geese or ducks that we've seen down here, except that one that landed in the pond last Friday during our hike. Kinda nice not to have to worry about Mum stepping in duck poo, or me trying to eat it on our walks, like we did back in Indiana.

The weather the past few days has been cold and rainy. Very stormy a couple of nights. Last night we lost power (guess that's something we're going to have to get used to). Mum was all prepared with flashlights, candles and matches. During the outage, we learned that our new gas stove works on electricity to ignite the burners, when Mum was trying to warm up something on the stove. But she thought she remembered from her past that you can skip the ignition part and light the burners with a match. Worked fine and we all had a nice dinner in the dark.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Flattered and honored!!!

Recently, our blog and our other site received some pretty cool kudos and honors!

Yesterday, Zazzle (an online marketplace) named our Johann The Dog and Raise A Green Dog Zazzle shop, one of their featured stores! If you haven't visited there yet, pull up your contemporary coffee tables, sit back and have a look, BOL! We have a few fun agility shirts and some pawsome Green Dog themed shirts and other gear.

My favorites are the "Agility Rocks" sweatshirt, and the "Lift a leg, fertilize a tree" shirt. Mum and I designed them with our own little paws. Thanks Zazzle for the promotion!

Also, this week Tails Inc. Magazine named Raise A Green Dog one of their Green Business Champions! Our friend from the Southside Animal Shelter, Robin Kennedy, nominated us. Thank you Robin and thank you Tails Inc.!

Also, our Twitter friend Yoda The Dog, was kind enough to give us a very cool award - the Sunshine Award! We met Yoda on Twitter, along with other super cool dog buds. Thank you Yoda, we are honored!!!
