The above are Lucky the Wonder Dog before she was completely grown up. (Yeah, she grew some more.) And Algonquin. Al lived with me for somewhere between 18-21 years. (My son and I argue about exactly when we got her. But she had a good long life for a pussycat and was much loved and queen of the household for a very long time. She was the mate of Onyx, the cat I had for about 15 years or so, who is pictured in the black and white shot of me nuzzling a black cat that used to be my ID photo on the blog.)
Tomorrow I will give more shots of my pets and (with your permission) those of yours who sent photos to me by e-mail.
