First, we need to tell you our computer is down and nothing can be done before Monday, so please, please, please VOTE MERCI EVERY DAY!!!
We have another hodgepodge for you today. Don't you just love the way our minds jump from here to there and off the cliff?
Cotton: We like to tell on Jan when she does something wrong. Today Merci has some good news to share with all of us -- Jan did something right.
Merci: Yes, Cotton, a couple of days ago, when we woofies were walking Jan, she stopped and turned around to look at something. My new collar popped open so I trotted around Jan and waited to see what she would do. I am very pleased to tell you that Jan did not take advantage of this rare opportunity and try to run away. She could have, of course, with only the big guys Buddy and Sam to hold her back.
Cameron: Maybe we should do something nice to reward her. How about some fresh catnip or some furry mice for Jan? **** sees Buddy glaring at him **** And maybe some woofie chews. Any of you guys have any green papers or do we need to ste ... uh, borrow them from Jan's purse again?
Buddy: We moved the CDC voting post. We were going to leave it there until the contest ends, but it is in the way of our regular posts, it freaked out one reader who thought the calendar had lost ten days (they were kidding), and we're posting a link every day, so it isn't necessary. Unless, of course, we forget to remind you and post the link.
So here it is for today. A direct link to Merci's voting page in the Cutest Dog Contest: http://www.cutestdogcompetition.com/vote.cfm?h=194291465301F78C17ECD3F5BA4AB250

A reminder for cat litter savings: A few months ago we JFF cats tested and reviewed World's Best Cat Litter. The company opened a new website and to kick it off, they are offering a $4.00 savings off your next purchase of World’s Best Cat Litter™. The website officially went live the 19th, thus the offer started August 19 and ends August 29. To view the new site and details about the saving, click here.
When we tried the litter, some of us loved it and a couple of us feline die-hards as usual refused to try something new. Jan loved it because it's a natural clumping litter and doesn't coat everything in the house with dust or cause her to have breathing problems. And if Merci wins the Cutest Dog Competition, Merci is going to treat Jan to all the WBCL she can use. Uh, we mean all the WBCL us kitties can use.
We read an interesting article from a vet on canine influenza:
"Forget about H1N1 for the moment. Let’s talk H3N8.
"Now that more states have experienced this nasty strain of the Canine Influenza Virus (there was an outbreak in Virginia last week and now New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Colorado are seeing it) the so-called “dog flu” is again in the news media." You can read the rest here.
