I Have A Dream …

… that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. – Martin Luther King

The truth is there’s not much color variety when it comes to humans, not compared to how we roll in the nation within. Take me, for example: mostly black but with one white ear, which I know on account of how many people mention it in my presence. Ever seen a human colored like me? The point is humans go on and on about skin colors when it isn’t even one of their strengths. – from Scents and Sensibility

    Good morning to everyone.
    We are chuckling about Chet’s take on variety of colors.
    Everyone enjoy MLK Jr. day, even if it isn’t his real birthday.

    Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

    I have read that dogs and cats that are all black are often not picked for adoption and honestly, that is how we ended up with 3 black cats all of whom had much better character than the beautiful “seal point” cat who was their mother. She was mean! I’d actually bet on her in a fight with Chet.

    Dawson: I had heard that too, which is why I have made it a point to adopt black dogs. Goliath was a mostly pointer but he wandered on to the elementary school I was working at and one of the teachers took him home to foster until he was old enough. I adopted from her. But the rest, until Freyja, have been black. And Freyja was on death row so she sorta doesn’t count as she already had two strikes against her and was red carded.

    Not sure how it works with cats. Shadow Kitty, the feral that took up residence in my parent’s storage shed (our former playhouse) was black and the three kittens she had were mostly black, although you did see some tabby stripes. We caught them all and had them fixed by the humane society. Took Shadow Kitty home and released her. Found out all three kittens were adopted within a week. She did have gorgeous eyes, just like their mother. She is occasionally spotted in the neighborhood but no longer lives in the playhouse, even though she was fed pretty regularly. They are such independent souls.

    Caesar, Ramses and Diana pawPrints. All black. Some white toes and a bit on the chest but mostly black.

    Everyone believes they have the best dog in the world. None of them are wrong.
