Furry Friday ~ A Nighttime Visitor

Yay! It's another installment of Furry Friday. :-)

Mom's working on a graphic for me (the luck of having a Mom who does graphic design.....if you need someone to build an ad or just some photo work I can hook you up! LOL) and I hope to have that by NEXT Friday's installment.

Today's guest has no name.


I heard him/her one night, smashing against the window repeatedly. I quickly forgot about him until the next morning when I went outside.

He had some how gotten wedged between the window screen (not IN the window) and the house. Poor guy. I rescued him and then got to taking pictures (what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't take pictures?! LOL).

After doing a little digging, I discovered what this guy was called, he's a Polyphemus Moth. I had felt bad for him, trapped all night and not being able to eat but then I found out that he doesn't even have a mouth! The adults don't eat, they just spawn and die. Well, I hope he was able to do that before he got trapped b/c, sadly, he didn't last long. :-(

Enjoy the few pictures I got. I wished they'd come out crisper, but I'm still learning my camera and it's settings and usually just keep it on auto. Haha.



An outtake but I still like it LOL

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972


1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
