They are beautiful dogs-I actually looked for Pharaoh Hounds when getting our first dog, but couldn't find any local breeders.  We went with the Vizsla eventually...

 She was absolutely beautiful, and just a great pet(but very high energy!!!).  They are such wonderful dogs we were compelled to get Vizsla/German Shorthair mixes for our next dogs- the now infamous Izzy and Sam! :)
ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering.  There is a crack in everything-that's how the light gets in

LOL JF.  I saw that on the news today - too cute!  Loved that!  I have really enjoyed seeing some of Bei Bei growing up (via cams and posts and such) and being cared for by the Mom Panda.  So endearing to see.

Here's a neat fact.  Wisdom, a 65-year old Laysan Albatross, hatched its 40th chick.

Love this!   :-* :-*   Thanks, Glo!  I'm going to share that link in other threads in Forum, too.

So are Opossums the Rodney Dangerfields of the world?  Check out this fun-filled facts article about them from the National Wildlife Federation:

Between the great things we can't do and the small things we refuse to do is the danger that we will do nothing at all.
