Thanks Sassy I love you x

I don't think Hubby could believe his luck! We have lots of birds again this year. Blue tits in the box at the end of the garden. Fantastic Very Happy

My little dog doesn't like blackbirds though for some reason. Likes to chase them off! Luckily they are quicker and braver than him lol!

He doesn't do it so often know he is an old fella, but mine loved to chase seagulls, then he would stand and bark defiantly at them when they dive bombed him! Now he is getting a bit blind and chases paper bags until he gets near enough to see what they are, then pretends he was not interested in the first place!

LOL!!! You can't help but love them can you?? xxx

Seagulls were a nightmare for my cat (no longer with us Sad). Poor old thing rarely caught anything. The last time I remember him catching a mouse a seagull came down and stole it from him!! He didn't bother after that, well he was 18 cat x

Thanks love x I have sold some and friends ask me to paint things for them. Would you believe I have an ongoing one for a friend who used to love pickled eggs when he was a child going to the fish and chip shop, so I am doing him a painting of a bottle of pickled eggs on a marble top with those big salt and pepper and vinegar bottles by it, called 'English Tea'!

Wouldn't it be more "culturally diverse" to do a picture of a doner in a kebab shop? Question Wink

Hop-pily ever after: Bernie the kangaroo joey brought back to life by his rescuer with a kiss

Post by Guest on Sat May 28, 2011 10:20 am

A baby kangaroo was brought back from the dead after being given the kiss of life by a wildlife carer. So young that it hadn’t even grown hair yet, the joey - the name given to baby kangaroos - was rushed to a rescue centre after it was found lying lifeless by the side of a road near Melbourne, Australia. The tiny pink animal was cold to the touch, but Lisa Milligan didn’t give up hope. She breathed air down its nose and mouth and massaged its heart until it suddenly came to.


Claws for thought: Bernie can consider himself the luckiest kangaroo alive after being brought back to life by Lisa Milligan

‘It was gone for all love and money. It wasn’t breathing. It was icy to touch and rigid,’ Ms Milligan told Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper. ‘But I kept going and after 15 minutes, it suddenly barked, which is what they do. And it started turning from a lifeless grey colour to perfect pink again.’

Ms Milligan has settled on calling the four-month-old creature Bernie, having concluded that naming him Lucky would be plain unlucky. ‘I think Bernie will suit him, after the movie Weekend At Bernie's,’ she told the paper.



He was found by the side of a road next to his dead mother, who had been killed by a collision with a car. Ms Milligan, who works at the Wildlife Rescue Centre at Kilmore, near Melbourne, explained that a passer-by had dragged the body of the adult to the side of the road so that his daughter would be spared from seeing it on her journey to school the next day. It was then that he noticed the joey lying worryingly still not far away. Praying that there was a hope he could be saved, the kind-hearted motorist dashed to the wildlife centre, where Ms Milligan saved him.

Kangaroos are particularly vulnerable near roads as engine noise and bright headlights surprise them and cause the energetic creatures to bound into oncoming traffic. Such is the damage a kangaroo can cause a car that many are fitted with protective ‘roo bars’. Sadly, because joeys travel in the pouches of their mothers, they too are often victims of collisions.

Ahhhh I love a happy ending, at least for this little one. He's so cute I love you x

The first photo tickles me, I'm sure Bernie should be growling - GRRRRRRRRR! lol!

Smotherly love! A reassuring snuggle for the kitten having a nightmare becomes an international YouTube hit

Post by Guest on Sat May 28, 2011 10:29 am

Awww factor 10! People usually say they're either a dog person or a cat person, but this display of motherly love should have universal appeal.

Couldn't resist posting this little kitten being comforted by his Mum I love you x
