5 Friday Fragments (animals, blogging, Kindness)


Friday Fragments is hosted my Half-Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. Here we go:
  1. Pugs (image source:  Wikipedia)

    Pug vs. French Bulldog

  2. Bulldog (image source:  Wikipedia)
    When we were walking in the park one day, two girls were walking their dog too, which I thought was a pug. When I pet the dog and said I like pugs, they told me it was a bulldog. This inspired me to look up the difference. I found that Pugs are wrinklier and have curly tails. Bulldogs are more muscular looking with straight tails.
  3. Blogging Mystery

    I don't know how it happened, my Monday Mischief post about Spunky Doodle and the night klunk showed up three times! I did not intentionally post it three times although I did edit it. Very strange. I deleted two of them and combined all the comments in the one I kept.

    Kindness

    Thanks to the guy who let my husband know his tire was going flat on the way home from work on Tuesday. He dropped it off at Parma Tire on his way home, they patched it up and didn't even charge him! We picked it up when I got off the bus an hour and half later! Thanks, Parma Tire!
  5. Most Helpful Post

    I think the most helpful post I read this week was "The #1 Key to Getting Paid to Do What You Love" The key is "being willing to take action despite your fears and excuses." Makes a whole lot of sense to me.
  6. Cats and Your Hair

    When playing Freekibble today, I discovered why Moe used to lick my hair and why Spunky Doodle does now: Cats lick your hair due to a natural need to groom loved ones, to show affection & they like the taste of natural oils in your hair. I still have my doubts though because it seems like they bite it more than lick it.

The cat before me used to bite on my human's hair and pull - my human said she was "flossing."

Tami said...

That was so nice of the tire place to fix your tire for free. It's hard to find good customer service like that nowadays.

My cat never licked my hair, but he did like to lie on my head if I were sick. That never felt good when I had a fever.

Fixed it for free? I didn't think any place would do something for free nowadays! ;-)

My DSIL is "hair challenged", and the cat he and my DD owned when they were first married loved to lick the hairless spots of DSIL's head. ;-)

It is amazing how good deeds can really make someone's day...

That was really nice of Parma Tire. I'm sure you'll go there anytime you have a problem with your tires. I would too.

Have a terrific day and weekend. :)

My cats don't mess with my hair but I had one before who liked to bite it so I have doubts about that grooming thing too. Yay for the guy who told Gerard about the flat tired and for Parma Tire for fixing it free!

Ann in the UP said...

I'd like to give Parma Tire a big pat on the back. It warms my heart to hear about great customer service and thanks for mentioning them!

Daisy said...

One of my Mommeh's biggest fears is to get a flat tire on the freeway!

Tettelestai said...

The two dogs that I always get confused over are the French bulldog and the pug.

We have never owned a cat and I had no idea that they wanted to groom their humans, isn't that funny?

Yay for the free tire fix, woohoo!

Lin said...

My kitties have always done those little "love" bites--you know, where they nibble on ya, but it doesn't hurt. Grace does that to me every morning. Thank goodness it doesn't hurt! But I know that it is an endearing thing because she is purring the whole time.

Nice of that guy to tell Gerard about his tire. I like when there are good/nice people who still do good/nice things.

I had to click on the little thumblink picture to this post because of the cute pug dog pic! I love me a cute pug :)

Also, my cats chew my hair too - how annoying (and sore)!
