Menosukhi Monday

Haven't had a dedicated menosukhi for a while; a post of pure sentimentalism and awwwwwsomeness. Am a bit late getting this one to you, but there was the minor matter of getting various travels reported. When I returned from the overseas jaunt, amongst the pile of mail behind the main door was a pupdate on Isaac.

Isn't he grown handsome??!!!

You may need to biggify the next one

...or maybe not...

It has been wonderfurs being able to be part of Isaac's progress from puppy-hood to his impending graduation.

That next pupdate will be the final one for Isaac. Yes it has been two years already! Each pup is only sponsored for 24 months - till they are placed with their furever host.

Another pup will need sponsoring thereafter.

Watch this space!

A couple of add-on critter picturs, jus' cuz...
This is Merlin at the Maritime Museum in Halifax. You'll recall I had my own rather good mug-shot of him from my visit there in June. This is a capture from the webcam - yes, I'll be keeping tabs on him!
Less exotic birds awaited my return to the Bonny Land. You may guess from the hunkering down that this homing pigeon is less than impressed by the falling rain and wintry wind... in July...
(Look closer, yes that's raindrops you can see!)

Out the back of our building, a puddy-tat finds a major sunpuddle!!!


  1. Hello, the first dog Isaac reminds me of my old chocolate lab named Maui. He is missed too. Love the birds and cute kitty. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

  2. Great news that Isaac's training is going so well. What a handsome fellow too!

  3. Issac sure is a good looking lab.
    Coffee is on

  4. I can't believe Isaac has been training for 2 years. Seems like yesterday. He is very handsome.

  5. Oh my dogness! You must be soooo proud of Isaac! He has grown into such a handsome fellow who will surely be someone's key to a better life!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  6. Yes Isaac is most handsome and I can see in his eyes he has a kind and gentle spirit...just right for the job he is being trained to do!! Congrats
    Merlin has a BEAK on him!!
    Did you see the kitty up and walking? Looks like he has a manx tail.
    Hugs madi and mom

  7. that are great news... I wish Isaac and his new owner all the best and our paws are crossed for successful training lessons :o)

  8. Isaac is so handsome! Such a nice series of feathers and fur! janice xx

  9. Wow..it seems like only yesterday Isaac was a tiny pup!! Sounds like his training is going very well!!

  10. I think the putty-tat has his eye on the pigeon. A Service Dog in training. Isacc will give someone great freedom to get around and be a great companion. Salty and Roselle were famous for getting their peeps out of the World Trade Center during the September 11 attacks. Down 71 and 78 floors.
    Thanks for being a friend
