Monthly Poll: Cat or Dog Person

Ah, the question that determines if you are intelligent or not: are you a cat person or dog person?  Okay, no not really.  I mean, come on, does it really matter in the end?  No, of course not!

This is my cat Mittens, and he is now three years going on four and we got him from the animal shelter when he was 11 months old back in 2009 in August.  His birthday is about the same day as my Grandpa John's. 

He's so spoiled.

For me I am both a cat and dog person because I have grown up around both.  That also can affect which one you prefer most, like if you were raised around cats then you may like cats more, and if you were raised around dogs you may like dogs more, even though that's not always the case.

Even then I had black stompy boots. :)
This is a picture of my dog, my very first.  Her name was Shay and she was the most sweet and gentle dog I have ever known, and she was my best friend.  It's really a sad story of how we had to give her to my aunt and uncle at the farm because we were moving away to Arizona, so I'm not going to tell you because I will only cry.  I had her for a whole year.

I would show you a picture of my Grandpa's dog Snuffy (who I named), but I don't have one, being I was only 11 when I last saw Snuffy,

Are you a cat person or dog person?

  • Cat person
  • Dog person
  • Neither
  • Other (maybe you are a horse person?)
  • Both


P.S.  I will be away at Super Summer till Saturday.  There are a couple of things I wanted to blog about which I have not gotten to yet so I'll be posting those when I get back.

The Highland Fair

 I had never been to a Renaissance fair before or any other thing like that so when my best friend Cassandra told me about it I was so happy and I had a great time with her there.  I took place at the Zoo (which actually is not a zoo anymore because they had to get rid of a lot of animals) last Saturday and Sunday, the hottest weekend on the month, and we went on Sunday.

I am such a dork...
Cassandra took that of me before we left.  And as we were on our way I realized I left my water at home and also my camera!  But thankfully she brought her's so all of the pictures in this post are the ones she took, but personally I would have gone picture taking crazy as I do when I bring my camera places. 

The Highland fair was a mix of medieval and Renaissance themes, and I would have loved to taken pictures of all the people in their awesome costumes that most had made themselves, they were pretty amazing.  I so could have easily spent at least a hundred dollars there or more, but I only had very little to spend, and I spent a total of $2...yes $2.  One dollar for water and another for a cool little handmade clay bowl.  Most all of the venders there sold handmade stuff with the medieval theme going on, and I love medieval nicknacks, especially dragans and unicorns.

When we were there they had a bellydance show at the amptheater that we went to watch.  I can't remember the name of the group but they go all around the state and they were really good.

This was there last act.

And this was the peacock that follows people around the zoo...don't all zoo's have one?

After walking around the zoo for awhile looking at all of the stands and wishing we had the money to buy stuff in the blazing heat we went for ice cream we sat in on an Opera, and it was alright.
This is one of the Opera singers.

Also while I was there I noticed that there were a lot of gothy types there, the only place here were I have seen that many in one place, and honestly it was kind of cool.

This is the bowl I bought, and I like the coating inside.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." ~ Joshua 1:9b
I had more to spend but I had something else in mind to buy at Hastings.  The cross necklace in the picture is what I really wanted to buy with part of the birthday money I had, it coast $9.99.  The Bible verse bellow the picture is what is written on the back of the cross, a Bible verse that means a lot to me and that I will always be able to carry around with me.
