Texas Wildlife

Another card from Texas, this one from Austin.

It took 6 days and traveled 1,043 miles.

Having lived in New Mexico, I’ve seen many of those animals, but not sure I’ve ever seen a wild armadillo, alive or dead(on the side of the road) or even at a zoo. Strange looking creatures, but in a cute, I want to cuddle with you way. :)

Blue Bird

This postcard took 6 days and traveled 4,154 miles from Paris, France.

The sender thought it was a hummingbird, but it’s not. I have no idea what kind of species it is. If you happen to know, leave a comment! Thanks!

The black of the postcard was too reflective, so you can see the fan in my living room and my phone as I took the picture. I really need to use a scanner for these postcards, but I’m lazy and that takes more effort. Hehe.

New iPhone App Territorial – Start Claiming Your Dog’s Land(FREE)

bya Gabrielle at 1:19 PM

Do you have a dog?

What about an iPhone?

Okay, now the important question.  Do you walk your dog or take it places?

You do?! Then I have a great new app for you.  It’s called Territorial.  The premise is simple.  You take your dog out and when he/she relieves himself, you click a button that says “OWN IT”, and that little plot of land is yours, or rather your dog’s, until another dog comes along and does the same thing.  It’s a game, and the goal is to claim and keep as much territory as you can.

Below is a picture of  the street my dog, Meili, has decided can be shared by no one. She’s made it her life mission to destroy all red dots – those are other people’s dogs marking their territories. She stole back a few places yesterday and has made it her goal to get the rest when she goes on her walk today. Friendly competition is what makes this game so much fun!

 

My Territories

 

There’s a cool leaderboard that you can be on and climb as you claim more territories! Meili obviously doesn’t have enough urges to go because as you can see, I’m in 3rd place, and this is my freaking app! And by my app, I mean, my husband, Phil, made it for me. If he created apps for every idea I had, he’d have to quit his job. Not sure why he decided to make this one, out of all the others I’ve had, but I generally don’t ask questions when he does nice things. But anyway, your name could be on this leaderboard, too, you just need to download this app to your iPhone and start walking your dog! Have I mentioned it’s FREE? Free is awesome!

Right now there are four achievements you can unlock. We plan to add more in future builds, but right now you can be a puppy, a dog, a wolf, and an alpha! Isn’t all this exciting? You know your dog is itching to conquer the world, one bowel movement at a time, so hurry up and download this app and start marking your dog’s land!

Achievments

 

If you have any suggestions for future builds, please drop me a line.  I’d love to hear from you.  Oh, and please tell all your friends, both furry and not!

Either this fish doesn’t have enough air, he’s really hungry, or he’s been watching The Little Mermaid way too often.

I thought I bought a dog, but really, Meili is a cat.
