Kato is telling look what I can are going to make leave. He taught himself this. Are you going to make me get down. It was his Dad’s favorite chair.

Kato was hunting something. I am not sure what inside the house. You didn’t bother him when he is hunting stance.

We owned German Shorthair Pointers for around 45 years. I trained them in show obedience. Here are a few favorite pictures.

  1. Such beautiful pics! Wildlife and all animals are so precious. Love your pointers. My family had one named Pepper when I was little, and then we had setters. All beautiful dogs and so smart!

    • The pointers are extremely smart and our German Short hair could sit scent a mile away. If we could had another dog it would be a German Shorthair. You could put a child in a fence a fence with the dog a d if he know you you couldn’t get the child or into a yard.

  2. Your photos of all these creatures are wonderful, BL! Your pets are sweet and I’ll bet sure love you! The hummingbirds in the mirror is amazing!

    Cats are so comfortable anywhere, aren’t they?

  5. What lovely pics! That is one gorgeous cat, for sure! And the wee hummingbird looks perplexed at its reflection 😆

    • Thank you. The cat😊💕🐈 picture is Kato, our Bengal cat who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Birds 🐦often will see themselves in Windows and try to chase them away.
