THE YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY
The above picture shows Sparky chumming up with my new rescue Doberman, Kyanne. Notice that Kyanne has a large dog bone. Kyanne doesn't like to share her bones. Sparky doesn't care. She wants to be friends with Kyanne, and by golly, she will be! That cat thrives on danger! (Thankfully, Kyanne is good-natured around cats.)
Not satisfied with putting her life in potential danger by trying to steal a bone from a possessive Doberman, Sparky decided to conquer the treadmill. It didn't take her long to get the hang of it, since she'd been watching me to see how it's done. The first few days she kept shooting off the end of the machine, but determination is her middle name, so she persisted, as evidenced by the below series of pictures, taken over several days.
