He’s looking into your soul.

Just a few more updates regarding my ever-growing suspicion that my dog may be a freak of nature . . .

A few weeks ago at Oak Island he and I were taking a walk, just strolling down the beach. Spark was looking for a possible seagull, crab or sandpiper kill and I was checking out the . . . seashells. Yeah, that’s what I was doing. Anyway, as we’re walking we come upon a group of vacationers just finishing up a game of Bocci Ball. You know, the game where somebody throws a little white ball somewhere and everyone then tries to see who can come the closest to it with their Bocci Balls. So the group had completed the game and were back in their beach chairs after having put all the balls in a little circle in front of them. However, just as we were walking by the little white ball blew away and was rolling down the sand towards the ocean. One of the guys begins to chase it, but right then Sparky makes a dash for it and grabs it before it gets to the water. He then takes it past the guy, up to the group, and places it gently in the circle with the other balls, precisely where it had been before. After a few seconds of stunned silence the group begins a slow golf clap, shaking their heads as they do so.

As Sparky re-joined me, I just smiled, shrugged and walked on.

A couple of days later, just before I was going to depart Oak Island for the Outer Banks, my sister (I was staying in her beach house) told me if I wanted anything washed to throw it in a pile in the hallway and she’d take care of it before I left. I did so and walked down the beach to visit friends by myself. She told me later that Sparky then took my clothes, one by one, put them back in my room, and laid on them. He then proceeded to growl at anyone who tried to get them. (more…)

 

Seriously, dogs are the best.

 

You have to admit, this looks fun.

Not the real lady. Still, behold the magic.

Torontosun – A group of tourists spent hours Saturday night looking for a missing woman near Iceland’s Eldgja canyon, only to find her among the search party.  The group was travelling through Iceland on a tour bus and stopped near the volcanic canyon in the southern highlands Saturday afternoon, reports the Icelandic news organization mbl.is. One of the women on the bus left to change her clothes and freshen up. When she came back, her busmates didn’t recognize her.Soon, there was word of a missing passenger. The woman didn’t recognize the description of herself, and joined in the search.About 50 people searched the terrain by vehicles and on foot. The coast guard was even readying a helicopter to help.But the search was called off at about 3 a.m., when it became clear the missing woman was, in fact, accounted for and searching for herself.

Get it? After she went in to “freshen up” nobody recognized her, even herself. I’m not sure I even understood that sentence. Musta been a helluva makeup job is all I’m sayin’.

 

This recently discovered monster is officially called a Venezuelan Poodle Moth, but I prefer to affectionately call it the Flying Poodle Monkey-Bat Moth from Hell. Some seem to think it’s cute, although I cannot imagine why and wouldn’t pet this beast if you paid me. It looks to me like it would leap up, rip a vein out of my neck and kill me. Let the nightmares commence.

NYDailyNews – The world’s oldest living person reached another milestone Sunday when she celebrated her Sweet 116. Monroe, Georgia, woman Besse Cooper has become only the eighth person in the world — and the fourth American — verified to have turned that age, according to Guinness World Records. Cooper isn’t really sure why she’s lived so long, but has her theories, she told The Walton Tribune.“I mind my own business,” she said.

How many kinds of awesome is Besse Cooper? The answer is very very many. Her theory as to why she’s lived so long?

“I mind my own business.”

That just about says it all, doesn’t it? Perfect. I love Besse Cooper.

Coolest person ever.

 

A dog would never do this. Ever.

Say what?

Incidentally, the clown photobomb is terrifying.

 

Yep, that’s a kangaroo and a wombat. But of course you knew that. Check ’em out.
