Oh my friends. Let’s do a twist today. Let’s see if you can scare me for a change. Mom/dad were sitting the living room last night with us anipals. The room was dark except for the flames of the fireplace. They were talking about movies they have seen over the years that scared them silly. Conversation went back and forth until they settled on two.
Dad’s Movie Pick – 1408. This movie came out in 2007 and started John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. You see John Cusack’s character was a so called ‘ghost hunter’. He went to famous places and would spend the night in haunted rooms. Most of the time, nothing happened and the places were debunked. But then while writing his latest book, he travels to New York to stay at the Dolphin Hotel in room 1408, a haunted room. In fact, it was so haunted that the hotel would not rent the room to anyone. Through lawyers, he finds out that if the room is vacant, the hotel has to rent it so he makes a reservation to stay. He checks in and meets with the hotel manager, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Jackson tries everything he can to persuade Cusack’s character not to stay in the room – a room upgrade, expensive booze and even will allow Cusack to look at a book he has made showing over 50 deaths in room 1408. But in the end, Cusack stays in 1408. Let’s just say that 1408 is everything you can imagine it to be.
Mom’s Movie Pick – House on Haunted Hill. This movie came out in 1999. Mom/dad will usually go to the movies to see comedy’s but for some reason, they saw this movie in the theater. Don’t ask me why because it’s not like them. Mom actually watched part of the movies with her hands covering her eyes. At one time, she even told daddy that she might have to leave – that’s how scared she was. The entire movie is about a millionaire who offers a diverse group of people $1,000,000 to spend the night in a haunted house with a horrifying past. “nuff said before I make water from being scared.
So my question to you my friends, what is the one movie that you saw that scared your pants off?

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this series!
Name: Jazz (nickname, “Jazzbo”)
Age: 14 ½ years

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? I was pretty excited over everything back then. Mom thought I had had cute curls on my butt, and I knew these were the people for me. They adored my handsome poodle curls!
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? My parents were determined that I was not going to sleep in their bed. The first night, they had a sleeping area all set up for me and turned out the light. I cried and cried. I missed my littermates, my mom, my dad, and my grandparents. I was not used to being alone. When dad relented and let me into bed, I knew that these people needed me to teach them the true Way of the Dog. I was needed here. We slept soundly in bed together, and I’ve slept with them ever since. That’s when I knew that this was the place where I was needed most.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? (*cough, cough*) I’ve always been perfect; there has been no naughtiness. Of course, I could always blame any accidents on Nutty, until he passed away in January. (*Looks down and away*) Now, I think the parents could be catching on how naughty I can be, but I’m not going to self-incriminate myself!
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I’d have to say, Mom. I’m special to both my parents, but Mom really depends on me to keep her happy. All the dogs here have a job, and I’m mom’s personal counselor. We snuggle all night long every night. I love dad, too, but he doesn’t need me quite as much. All I have to do is whine a little, and mom knows what I need (*hair flip*). We understand each other.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? They sometimes forget that I’m old and things are getting hard for me. Since I’m almost blind and absolutely deaf, they can easily give me the slip if they move through the house so fast. They will find me wandering the house looking for them. Mom gets me acupuncture, chiropractics, and medication, and feeds me healthy food, but sometimes she forgets to be sure I’m with her. I follow her all over the house because I never know when she’s going to need me. I want to be there for her, but sometimes It’s hard to keep up.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
