GIBBS: THE WEREWOLF OF UXBRIDGE – BASE BEAST IN A SMALL TOWN

Another week has run away. Left me in the dust.

Maybe it’s just me, but time seems to have sped up and each time I look up, a week, two weeks, a month is gone. Now, it’s November. So soon. And the election is next Tuesday. Garry is in New York. I’m here in the house. With the dogs who obviously wish Big Daddy Doglegs would come home. Because mom isn’t nearly as much fun.

I got some interesting portraits of Gibbs this morning. He’s fuzzy. A bit grubby. A trifle matted if you look really closely, but he isΒ 100% cute, with a weird factor of 9 out of 10.

And today, for some reason, he reminds me of “poor Larry Talbot … “the Wolfman.” He’s got a werewolf face, doesn’t he?

  2. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and Tabby meows that for a dog, Gibbs has more charm than a werewolf, although you can never trust a dog, especially at full moon.

    • And we are having a very full moon — a super moon — on November 14th though it may be a different date at your latitude. I will need some SUPER treats for my were pups πŸ™‚ They’re pretty friendly, but definitely — weird.

  3. Better check the calendar for the next full moon, and then make sure you have PLENTY of treats available that night….

    • The next full moon will be the Beaver Moon and will rise on Monday, Nov. 14. It’s a supermoon, so I better have super treats for my super dogs!

      Nov. 14 Beaver Moon 8:52 a.m. 13:52
      Dec. 13 Cold Moon 7:05 p.m. 00:05 (12/14) and the last one of this calendar year.

      NASA says this month’s supermoon will appear 30 percent brighter and 14 percent larger than a typical full moon. Those looking at the moon as it hovers closer to the horizon are in for a treat. NASA reports that observers will be able to see a β€œmoon illusion,” which makes the moon look exceptionally big when viewed through foreground objects like tall buildings.

      This moon will reach the crest of its full phase at 8:52 a.m. Eastern time, and perigree will occur within about an hour to an hour and a half of that time, according to EarthSky.org. But it should look exceptionally big and bright throughout the night.

      I wish I actually had some chance of seeing it. Too many trees. Can’t see anything around here. I’ll go out and look anyway, because I’m a good sport that way.
