Gloria asked me to post a picture of Jango playing with our new rescue Gollum. Now why would anyone name a female white cat Gollum? Well...I hate to say it but Gollum is possibly one of the ugliest cats I have ever laid my eyes on. She looks so much like Gollum from Lord of the Rings in the face. I will try to get a close-up of her face but she is a loving animal and likes to rub against me when I try to take her picture. My husband found her locked inside an apartment that is being renovated. There was no food or water. Gollum likes my birds and tries to get the chickens so she can't stay. If you are in the Savannah area and would like an ugly white cat, I can hook you up. LOL.

As you can see, Jango is doing great. At five months, he has reached his full grown size at 5 pounds. He is loving and gentle and has stolen our hearts. He is nothing at all like our Geronimo who we miss terribly. Jango cares less about riding in the car. He curls up and goes to sleep. Geronimo had to see everything that was going on and often took over the wheel. Jango is not big on outings. His favorite part of a hike is the hike back and he takes that part at a run. Jango has never bitten anyone and loves everyone. Geronimo never met a person he did not bite at least once. Jango loves cats and other dogs. Geronimo only tolerated a few. How can two dogs from the same breed have such gigantic differences in personalitly I will never know. It doesn't matter. Geronimo will always be a huge place in my heart and Jango has taken over the rest.

Thanks so much for the spotlight Donald!!

    Adorable shot, Regenia and I loved your narrative also...Dogs are like people in so many ways as there are no two people exactly alike either..Amazing when you think about it the differences and the similarities...

    What a wonderful picture. Now I kept one of my dogs JUST because someone told me he was ugly. I would not hear it. These two could be life long friends. I really think you need to keep her and make her an inside cat. Once she gets over it, she won't mind staying in. I would gladly help with her bills. They say once you name them, they are yours. :-)

    awesome capture, Reg! glad you have Jango, not just to fill Ger's shoes but to continue and create his own fun memories. Yes, I won't know the difference with ugly and cute on dogs and cats. =)

    This is the sweetest capture!! Gollum looks like a very lovable little feline, and I do hope she will have a safe and secure future in a loving home, she deserves it ! Obviously Jango loves her and vice-versa,

    Very sweet portrait of these two loveable rascals, Regenia!! I agree with Andrea, just as no two people are exactly alike, neither are animals, so we accept them for who they are!! He sounds like a wonderful doggie to me, and of course you will always have your precious memories of Geronimo!!

    A wonderful illustration for this great narrative, Regenia! Your love of animals is legendary, like Gloria's. Jango is so cute, and a fantastic subject for your photography. I am glad he is friendly too.

    This is a great explanation of your current life with Jango. Sounds like it's going great. Love the photo, and I hope that someone gives a home to that poor cat. I can never understand people who would do such a thing!!!

    wow, love the narrative, I so understand about dogs being different but from the same breed. Have 2 in my house now - they are nothing alike. Glad to here all is well and Jango is making the adjustment to things, he seems to be making you happy. I feel like it has been forever that I have been able to check out photos on JPG but have been extremely busy amongst other things. I will try and do better
