Here's my dog. She's not much of a shop dog, but if Mom goes in she'll follow. She'll chase just about anything RC (except boats ) but only for a short time. If she is with me she usually is just slowing me down by sleeping on one arm.

Here's our gang

Luka is the Boxer on the left and little Lucy is the mixer hamming it up in the middle. The Boxer on the right (Luka's brother)was over for a visit that day.

Patches the Flying Cat

Here's one from the archives that involved one of our earlier cats when we were in our Shanghai apartment. The following text along with the accompanying photos are from an email I sent out May 2005.

My first request is that no one calls the local chapter of the SPCA to report this.

One of our cats must have been watching Bullwinkle this weekend & decided he wanted to emulate Rocky the Flying Squirrel. Patches, our somewhat challenged, yet loving orange & white Shanghainese, somehow got past the window screen in the apartment's "casa de gato" yesterday morning before breakfast & discovered what it was like to free fall 11 stories to the courtyard below. Luckily for him, his outward trajectory - influenced, no doubt, by the flailing of paws & his excessively long tail - placed him directly in line towards a shrub 35 meters below which absorbed the bulk of the impact. If that hadn't occurred, I'm sure this photo montage would not coming to your mailbox as it is.

After searching all over the apartment & finding we were missing one of the cats, my worst fears were realized after I looked out the window. I immediately headed down the elevator with a bath towel expecting the very worst. As it was, I turned the corner & found Patches staring at me, in shock & trying to hide in the corner next to the building beside the bush that saved his life.

As soon as I approached him, he let out a loud YEOW! & ran for cover which was the best thing I could hope for since he exhibited no signs of a broken limb or other trauma. The doctor who checked him said he appears to be OK, is just in a state of shock, & will probably come out of this with no lasting side effects aside from a fear of heights. He's gingerly getting around the house & has already regained his notorious appetite, so at least it appears he is on the mend. I must say, they build damn good cats here in China!

After being away from Shanghai for the past two weeks, I don't think I can stand to have anymore excitement like this to come home to!!

I have more to say but think it's best that I close with several quotes I found on the Hokey Smoke! Rocky & Bullwinkle website: http://bullwinkle.toonzone.net/rocky.htm

Rocky: "Hey Bullwinkle, we're in real trouble now!"
Bullwinkle: "Oh good, Rocky! I hate that artificial kind!"
Rocky: "There has already been two attempts on your life."
Bullwinkle: "Don't worry, we'll be renewed."


I left out the photo showing a huge pile of shte that Patches left beside the building. To this day, I'm not sure it that landed after he hit the bush or was deposited after the fact...

Yes, I wondered that myself. That's actually the kitchen range hood vent from the apartment below.

Is it a sheep?

This is what you get when you cross a part Golden Retriever part Black Lab mom with a part Black Lab and part Border Collie dad. Most people say she looks like a sheep. Her name is Cinder.
When I take her to the flea market with me she loves meeting the people and especially the kids and other dogs but if she gets tired of that or if it's cold she wants to be put into the truck where she can snooze on a soft seat. She is very friendly but don't mess with my truck if she is in it. You will hear about it promply.
She loves to snooze right under my feet when I'm working on a boat and if a part drops on the floor it is instantly eaten. Plastic,wood or metal doesn't matter. If she gets to it first it's gone. Ha! Pete

Mike:
Brandi is being a ham......

I tell everyone that she can count, I put 4 jelly beans in my pocket, then gave her 3 of them, she knew there was one more and when she got that she trotted off knowing there were no more treats from me then.
