   Labrador Heaven  If you have not seen the documentary "The Tiger and The Monk" - it's on Netflix now. For all animal lovers, those who enjoy basking in God's wonderous creations and can marvel at things in nature that can exist side-by-side even as polar opposites, you will love this. Absolutely beautiful, stunning and has some very funny moments.

   MeiDei  In case you missed the story about the injured fawn, her rescue & return to her mother and brother:

   FlatCityGirl  How could he NOT have his camera with him when the mom finally showed up?

What a heartwarming 17 minutes.

   Mildred  Thanks for the video. Loved the dogs caring for the fawn.

When living in the Colorado mountains a momma elk would give birth every June in our yard and leave her newborn for the day while feeding because the baby could not keep up with the mom. We were told not to touch the baby or the mom would not return. Babies do not have any odor so the predators would not know it was there. Some time late in the afternoon we would check to see how the baby was doing and the mom had come back for it. I also remember watching across the mesa as a baby waited patiently for the mom and when the mom returned they ran to each other. Once mom did her motherly duty they were gone. Every day the group of 2-3 dozen would come into the yard, feed on the aspen trees, rest and then move on to another yard. I will never forget that experience.

   MeiDei  I didn't know that babies have no odor, wondered why the fawn escaped the bear's attention. The Connection is a learning experience! Thanks Mildred.

   Mildred  Your welcome MeiDei. The locals knew about that and not to touch the babies but visitors would get very upset seeing a baby lying next to the road and would want to move it thinking they were protecting the baby. The moms seemed to be unaware that cars were dangerous to their babies. I learned a lot too and it was fascinating.

   Balogreene  This made me realize how much I hate nature (the mother leaving the baby ), even though it is the safest thing for mom and other baby. The man was wonderful, but watching, I was unsure the fawn could ever get back to her family.

   MeiDei  The whole reunited family pranced around his yard at the end of the video. The back story is they show up regularly, he has a game camera he sets up in the woods also.

   Safetydude  I believe this is the second generation Miss Bobcat,the community rodent control,
(judging from her size ).

She wandered by under my window, as the sun was beginning to set.
After passing behind my truck she went into our neighbors yard before I could get
outside with my camera.

   MeiDei  This is for those of you who love horses & animals in general - I came across a blurb about rare horses & found this one to be amazing. FTA: "I had to look twice…this horse is beautiful enough to be a bronzed statue! With an unbelievably shiny coat that appears to be metallic in the sun, the Akhal Teke is the national emblem of the country of Turkmenistan. Not surprisingly, it’s known as the golden horse!"
To really appreciate this regal horse, click on the photo to make it bigger.

   MeiDei  The avg. price for this particular horse is 50,000 Euros. Most others of different colors are in the 10-20,000 Euro range. Transportation is extra. Another thing about this horse - it's eyes are closer together & forward over it's muzzle giving it a unique/pretty appearance. The photo I'm guessing is in Russia since there'a a sub in the background : )

   Flaming Sword  I've seen that site .That horse in so beautiful it doesn't even seen real. But I'll never believe there's any horse on earth more beautiful than a Gypsy Vanner. Just photos of them take my breath away.

   Carolina Kat  Flat City Girl! I've got a Rosy, too. She's a six month old, 90# english mastiff pup. (the beautiful mastiff Shiloh in my icon photo died in May ) I named her Rosy because she is an apricot mastiff - and has a rosy outlook on life!

   FlatCityGirl  She is a beauty. Good Lord! Look at those feet! How big will she be when she reaches her full growth? My son loves an English Mastiff. He talked about getting one, then fell heir to a Boxer by default, and now have three.

Rosie's story is a page or two down if you want to read about her. She's sort of a miracle pup.

   Escaped commieny  don't know a thing about Mastif, but brought home a 35 lb black lab that is now 85 #, never know what a rescue will be, she is so lovable and takes care of the little beagle, had to respond for the 'feet' comment, Molly had/has Hugh feet

   Carolina Kat  I just read your 'cookie' story about Rosie. So funny - and yes I believe dogs do talk to each other. We use the word "cookie" as a fail-safe. No matter what is going on we can get the dogs to come and sit. The horses also come to 'cookie' but they don't 'sit' - LOL.

My Rosy will top out between 180 and 200 pounds. Her sister is a 50# 5 mo old Newfoundland named Nora. Her paws are even bigger!
