The dogs are having a jol at Milnerton Beach when all of a sudden Gigi spots a seal swimming in the waves!

The dogs are having a jol at Milnerton Beach when all of a sudden Gigi spots a seal swimming in the waves!

 

It was Gigi who spotted the seal first:

 

She was actually so excited, she ran into the water towards it!

 

It looked like she was barking at the waves when all of a sudden the head of the seal popped up out of the ocean, looked at us for a moment there and then continued to surf the breaking waves.

 

 

This was the first time I ever watched a seal surfing the waves, having so much fun.

 

The dogs were all like: Us too! But they didn’t venture into the deep waters. The waves of the atlantic ocean are something to reckon with!

 

Well, unless you’re a seal that is.

 

Because this seal was just enjoying itself, not having a care in the world, also not about the barking dogs.

Handsome rattie boy Poeksie! And yes, that's his balls bulging out from beneath his bum.

Handsome rattie boy Poeksie! And yes, that’s his balls bulging out from beneath his bum.

 

Rattie boys are much more placid than girls, but you wouldn’t think so looking at the package they carry beneath their tail: Male rats, or bucks, have proportionally huge testicles, I mean, they’re almost as big as their head!

 

That’s because of their mating behaviour: If there are many rats around, females, or does, can breed with many males. This is called polyandry and results in sperm competition: If multiple males mate with a female, it’s up to their sperm to finish the race. And a good chance that one of your guys makes it to the eggs is if you deposit a lot of them. Hence the big balls, they hold a lot of sperm.

 

There is a direct relationship between testicle size and sperm competition, so this applies to all animals with a polygynandrous mating system such as lions and dogs.

 

So there you go, rattie boys are little stud farms on their own, but having big balls does not stop them from being absolutely adorable!

This is my pet rat Milka, as she sits on our bar stool in our kitchen, looking down the edge of the seat, pondering.

I just love this shot.

Doppelgaenger déjà vu: Starsky also has only the right ear up, just like Lola and Gigi.

Doppelgaenger déjà vu: Starsky also has only the right ear up, just like Lola and Gigi.

 

What is it with our dogs and having one ear up and one ear floppy?

And not only that, it’s also the same combination: The right ear stands up.

 

After seeing double with Lola and Gigi, the same is occurring now with Lola and Starsky:

He is ‘wearing’ his ears the same way Lola does – right ear up, left ear flopping down.

 

I don’t particularly remember dogs having different ears, as far as I can recall it was either or: either both ears stand up or both ears hang down.

 

Lola can do with her right ear both: She can let it hang loose or she can lift it up. She often sleeps with her right ear up, it’s as if she can only relax one-sided. She does make a great guard dog.

 

Gigi also went through a phase where only her right ear stood up. But she grew out of that, both her ears are floppy now, even though they’re so tiny. It’s hilarious she can’t perk them up, only raise them, but her mini cute ears are still hanging floppy down.

 

So who knows what Starsky’s ears will look like when he grows up, but this picture is just like: Doppelgaenger déjà vu!

Please help and find these two adorable rescue puppies a good home!

Please help and find these two adorable puppies a good home!

 

Please help!

Puppy brothers Starsky & Hutch are looking for a good home.

 

Starsky is the puppy with the dark hair like Ben Stiller in the movie and Hutch is the blond one like Owen Wilson.

 

Just like Starsky & Hutch they make a great team!

 

While Starsky is outgoing, adventurous and up for anything, always in the middle of the action, Hutch is a very gentle soul, a tender handsome little boy, who always wants to cuddle.

 

Together they play and explore. Watching out for each other, they always have each other’s back. With their puppy clumsiness and swagger, they make a funny pair. You don’t want to miss out on all the hilarious entertainment these adorable cuties bliss us with every day.

 

Both are housetrained and socialised with other pets. They get on well with children and are an awesome addition to the family. As young as they are, Starsky & Hutch are already very protective over us and would make great guard dogs.

 

They’ve had all their medical checks, are dewormed and vaccinated, and come with dog bed and harnesses, although they are outgrowing these quickly!

 

Because they get on so well with our dogs, we’d love to find them a home in Cape Town or even Woodstock, so we can meet up for playdates. I’m also happy to dogsit them any time.

 

Most importantly we’d like them to stay together, they’ve been through such ordeal as rescue pups, but they always had each other.

 

Could you be the one who can offer Starsky & Hutch a forever home?

 

If you know someone who has the space for two medium sized well natured and absolutely charming male dogs, please get in touch: TrulyJuly@web.de 🙂

First visit to the beach for Starsky & Hutch! And all I get a photo of is their backside… Which is, of course, also cute! 😉

 

“Hutch, over here!” Nope, Hutch is way too excited about what’s happening around him at the beach to look into the camera.

 

Clearly the first time at the beach is incredibly exciting, because not once did the puppies hold still just long enough to take a picture.

 

And the entire time Starsky & Hutch were watching Lola and Gigi run and enjoy the freedom of endless beach, with shadows of seagulls to chase.

 

The sand was also intensely interesting, to smell, to eat, and to dig. No time to look up at me long enough for at least one nice snap.

 

Well well, it was a lot of fun, and that’s all that matters. 🙂

Our ratties’ 1st birthday! And they celebrated with lots of #rattie #treats:

Mini fruit skewers, mini bruschetta, mini cupcakes, mini biscuits, mini 85% dark chocolate splinters: Our ratties turn 1! :)

Watch rattie Mommy enjoy her fruit skewer:

 

And a cupcake on top of it:

 

 

Yoshi is undeterred and only focusses on licking the yoghurt off the cupake:

 

They came, they saw, they ate:

Like after any good party, the ratties pass out all cuddled up:

We can conclude: The ratties had a great 1st Birthday Party! 🙂
