Arrival Story:
We went to Friends of Homeless Animals and visited a few times, walking many dogs. Amina's super calm disposition really clicked with us. After we walked her and thought it over a bit, we went back to her cage and said, "Want to come home with us?" She put her paw up to the cage as a response and we knew we'd made the right choice.

Amina was found wandering near Lynchburg, VA on November 4, 2004. She was held at a shelter and her time was almost up before a kind woman rescued her and temporarily named her "Wanderer." After fostering her for a while and shipping her up north to a rescue organization (where she was renamed Traveller and had her picture taken with Santa Claus), Friends of Homeless Animals took Amina on and renamed her Treasure. We adopted her in May of 2005 and named her Amina, which means "peaceful" in Arabic. She's happy to be done with the name changes. Based on the variety of estimates we received, we think she was born in 2001. We're using the adoption date as her birthdate (plus four years). There's mixed opinion as to whether or not she's purebred (it doesn't really matter to us, though I would be interested in what other coonhound guardians think).

Manhole covers and scary cats

Recently, I've developed an aversion to manhole covers. If I'm walking by one and there's no easy way around it, I'll jump over it. I probably look pretty funny, but it works.

The other morning mom and I were out for a walk and I saw the orange cat that hangs out on our porch across the street under a tree. I whined so mom took me over there to say hi. This cat and I get along really well... she usually rubs against me and purrs. She was in a bad mood that day. I stuck my nose under the tree to say hi and she hissed and swatted my nose! I jumped back and whimpered, but then caught a scent somewhere and forgot what I was looking at.

I think the worst thing would be a cat shaped like a manhole cover. That would freak me out.


Half people freak me out

A couple of months ago, mommy and daddy took me to the place where they went to college. I love going there because there's so much grass to poop on.

But there was one part I didn't like. There was this weird guy, he looked all bronze, but there was only half of him. He looked normal... but had no bottom half. It creeped me the hell out. Daddy said it was a "sculpture" of a "civil rights leader" that was one of his professors.

Daddy went and posted a video of me freaking out for the world to see. How embarrassing.

He also posted a bunch of pictures that don't move from the visit.
