Angela Merkel arrives at the airport in Paris.
"Nationality?" asks the immigration officer.
"German," she replies.
"Occupation?"
"No, just here for a few days."

Has anyone noticed the price of puppies has sky rocketed since the Summer?
A Mini Schnauzer for $2,600 WTF are they smoking?

Dog prices in Canada are insane. It's one reason we drove to the US for Charlee, we wanted a specific breed (dachshund) and prices in Canada were like 2,000+, I was like nope never paying that much for a dog.

Canada made CNN again, this time for warnings of moose licking cars which until now I didn't know was even a thing moose desired to do.

Also made snopes, guess people thought it was fake.

There are some big bears in the river right now; I just saw a couple that seemed to be scrapping over a salmon.
edit; they're switching the cams around, this is pretty good

Thought they would all be snoozing by now, but looking like the weather is still pretty nice, may as well keep packing on the weight.
