Rubber Chicken For Dinner Again?

What did you have for dinner?

Hugo says he loves to share Grandpa's dinner but Mommy says it isn't good for him so she gives him this rubber chicken whenever he's drooling over people food.

It just doesn't cut the mustard!

Hugo says he loves looking at birds! They are so bright and pretty, move very quickly and make cool noises.

You can see a picture of his favorite at the Fabulous Finch. The Lady Gouldian Finch is on the endangered species list in Australia. There are only about 2500 left in the wild. Look how colorful they are with their red heads and purple breasts!

The Fabulous Finch, a US based company, is dedicated to the preservation of this species in the wild through "Save the Gouldian Fund" in Australia. They are proud to be the first US company to contribute to this fund. They breed and offer birds for sale together with food, supplements and merchandise required for the birds' good health. You may read the background, diet and care
and breeding of these lovely birds on a site which is easy to navigate and very specific.

Breeding and caring for the Lady Gouldian Finch is not an easy task and it takes dedication and much care. Information has not been readily available and some sites make it dry and uninteresting. The Fabulous Finch makes caring for and breeding as simple a matter as possible, with easy to understand language and exact specifications.

Many brands of food and care products are available such as Morning Bird and Twin Beaks. There are pellets, medications, grit and breeding supplies and the prices seem reasonable.

The Fabulous Finch is a full line business which offers a very wide selection of products and brands - in stock and ready to ship. If you are looking for Vetafarm Australia pharmaceutical products to treat birds, this may be the answer as they are recognized as a leading innovator in avian health products by aviculturalists and veterinarian.

Hugo says check out the Fabulous Finch - perhaps you'd like to raise and breed Lady Gouldian Finches. Gift certificates are also available.

Hugo says he's going to Egmont tomorrow with Grandma and Grandpa for another holiday!

Grandma bought a new bag of dog food and a few nice treats so we're nearly ready to go. The shades are packed and adventure awaits! Hugo will dig clams and pick up oysters on the beach. He will chase sticks and balls and even plans to learn to swim.

If you email your address to his Grandma at heathermarysmith at hotmail dot com, Hugo will mail you a post card from Egmont!

Hugo says he hopes you have a great summer vacation too!

...Grandma needs her own poopy dog to love but she wants to find the right breed and the right temperament - not to mention a doggy which doesn't shed or smell or drool! A little girly dog might be fun to dress up in rhinestones but she has to understand Hugo is the boss and she musn't be yappy or mean to his kitty. Oh, and she has to like boating...

That's a tall order but Hugo says we will find just the right companion with the right traits for Grandma on Just Dog Breeds. There is information on over 150 different dog breeds, ranging from small, cutesy, cuddly lap dogs to high maintenance show dogs.

Before you choose a companion canine you must ask yourself a few very important questions - and some of the questions on this site will make you really stop to think of the pro's and con's of small dogs versus big dogs.

Grandma is going to educate herself before making a final choice and is the perfect place to start. Each breed is listed alphabetically and there are tons of photos. If you see a photo of a dog you like, click on the breed name and the dog is rated - in popularity, shedding, friendliness with children, protection ability, size, ease of training, exercise required, grooming required and even life expectancy. This is a well organized, comprehensive site which is easy to navigate. Now, that certainly makes it easy to choose a compatible companion.

Okay, this is seriously a fun site too - take a look at this big boy Mastiff! He has a face only his mother could possibly love.

Hugo says he and Grandma are going to have fun selecting a new friend at Just Dog Breeds!
