3 Eyed Cameron and Chihuahuas

First, the latest on the Chihuahuas. We stopped by the mill this morning and were told Animal Control was called yesterday regarding a trap but evidently the county shelter instead of city animal control. However, the tan and white dog has not been seen since it ran across the street into the bushes Friday, so it is possible the dog is no longer at the mill. The dog could hide forever in that undergrowth. So we aren't expecting any more news for a while.

Because of the ... shall we call it tension between the shelter and the Humane Society, Jan has not called the shelter to ask about the chocolate Chihuahua that hasn't been seen since the first night. Today, she had opportunity to speak to city Animal Control and learned a chocolate Chihuahua was picked up in the Walgreen's parking lot last week. Whether it has been adopted or put down is something we can't answer. Nor can city AC since it doesn't have any say at the shelter. What we do know is that if this tan and white one is caught, it will be put down without a chance of adoption because it growled at the mill crew trying to catch it last week. So right now, we're hoping it will find someone on its own and make friends so it can be helped -- not turned in to the shelter. Time will tell. We wish it the best!

And after so much sadness around the blogs the last week or two, we decided a moment of comic relief is in order. Rocky Creek Scottie Adventures is having a contest. All you have to do is post a picture sticking out your tongue. So, purely by accident, we found an appropriate entry today when Jan downloaded the camera.

Yep, it's a 3-eyed Cameron! But his tongue is showing, so it counts, doesn't it?

Maybe next time he'll listen when Jan tells him to sit still.


  1. w00fs, heehee cameron is got to win that contest...and me sorry for the little pups, they git sooo skeered when they running, they not nos its fur their own good..

    b safe,

  2. It is so sad and so common for all kinds of politics and power grabs to go on among people who are paid to take care of animals. i wish they would find jobs somewhere else.

  3. Way to go Cameron! Gotta make it a challenge for the humans to take their pictures, otherwise its just no fun!

  4. You are very funny sticking out your tongue!

  5. Wow, that is one interesting looking kitty, but yep, the tongue is out - submit it for sure.

    Sorry about the chihuahuas, you are good to try.

    Cameron....that is one very cool picture!!!

  10. We think sometimes some rescue groups are more cautious about where animals are placed than human social services is about placing kids in foster homes. Sometimes a little too cautious. We think politics has no place in the welfare of any living creature.

    We love your triclops picture!!!
