The Rat Empire Strikes Back

Waiting for my missing bits /pages to be marched back to the fold, I’ve been killing time consorting with the Rats some more, and expanding the role of the human characters in Fun&Games@Wolfpark (to be posted soon as I resize it). Salut!

Update 27/08/08

Oh, dear… Trying to be clever and independent, I’ve managed to fuck things up and the contents of About Dolores/this site page(s) and the Gossip category (and page) have gone AWOL. Or spontaneously moved somewhere else on the site. Damn! No big deal, though. The potted bio wasn’t all that informative after all, and the Gossip Column was as quiet as a Trappist convent. Al should be well as soon as my kindly webmaster has a firm word with those errant items. Meanwhile, have a reptile.

Update 25/08/08

I’ve just posted a mini-bio in the About… section and a few more creatures in the Rogues Gallery. And here is the companion to young Olufemi’s woes. And a confrontational puss. And a pig, for good measure. Por mucho pan, nunca mal año, say the Spaniards…

Wolfish Shenanigans

There’s a new link on the site. It’ll take you to Wolfpark, a wolf conservation project in Battleground, Indiana, USA. One of the tutelary entities of the place is a chap called Monty Sloan, a professional photographer who seems to spend most of his time taking pictures of the animals who live there. …when he’s not out howling with the wolves on “Howl Nights”. Some people have all the luck, that’s what I think.

Once a week or so, they let loose some of the wolves, so they can interact with the bison. Some interaction! The wolves run rings around the bison and they steal their apples to boot, the cheeky blighters. I suppose it’s all very good for the bison, who look too prosperous for words and I’m sure they can do with a bit extra exercise.

Anyway, Monty’s asked me to do something suitable for printing on a T-shirt and sent me a pic of a bison chasing Wotan, one of the wolves in one of the several packs that roam the park. So, here goes the b&w version of what has emerged so far.

Other interesting lupine links are Monty’s own sites. Have fun!

Update 13/08/08

The place of Class War now usurped by The Secret Life of Beagles. And there are two new pages, one with yet more animals and Spikky’s rant page.

The Secret Life of Beagles

Another snippet of what animals get up to when we’re not looking at them.


Dreamtime Revisited

Here be the Dreamtime series as it should be seen. Gogon dixit.

A Red Herring

This will end up in the Tarot section as 1) the said Red Herring and 2) the latest in Wild Cards. What a Spaniard would call “un enano infiltrado”. As a Tarot card, there case it can be used as many things, stuff from Heisenbergian uncertainty to the 8 of Swords on a really, capsule really bad day.

Update 05/08/08

Urraca & Elvira, ask the Twin Suspension Cows of Doom, order announce that the Tarot page has now been updated. Much easier on the eye, we think.
