Colonel Mongo in the Parlor… with Molasses!

Bad Dad left a bottle of molasses in the kitchen and poor Mongo has to pay the price.

Why Fear of Predators is Important

A study was just released that documented that the “fear of predators” is as important as the predator’s presecence itself.  As humans hve removed the apex predators in many ecosystems, the behavior of the meso-predators has changed, allowing them to spend more time eating and sleeping and less time worrying about getting eaten.

Squirrel Girl

Squirrel Girl (Doreen Green) is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.  However, when Emerald City Comicon rolls around in Seattle, we get visits from all the superheros, including the real Squirrel Girl.  This Squirrel Girl was just lucky that Mongo and his sidekick Spork were not downtown on this day.

It was mid-winter.  The time of year in the Pacific Northwest when the days are very short.  It was dark when Dad took Mongo out for morning walks, and dark when he took him out for evening walks.

On one of these short dark days, Mongo found the door to the pantry slightly ajar.  For Mongo, this is always an open invitation for noshing.  The first thing to catch his interest that day was a five pound bag of rice.

Eating five pounds of rice actually takes longer than one might think.  It is a lot of rice, even for Mongo.  It turned out to be a whole day affair.
