UPDATE Number 1: Our mixed up friend, Heather Carter, won yesterday. She got about 38% and her 2 opponents got 31% each. She runs in the final in early November. There may be more updates to come.
The latest I’ve heard is that Carter will win and Carter won’t win. For those interested, Ducey beat Bennett.
UPDATE number 2:
We found out that our little buddy, Karma is a Sonoran Desert Toad. That means that she’s poisonous but only if ingested. Now Kaci and I wouldn’t do that to Karma, but Kali…..
Last night while He was at work, Kali was in the dog run which is just on the other side of the doggy door just under the window:
She was trying to get to a tarantula (we have our own species, the New River rust rump) who made the mistake of wandering into the run.
We’re closing off the run at night so she won’t encounter the spider. No, it’s not to protect Kali-the spider is harmless and we love our tarantulas-it’s to protect the spider from that relentless hunter, Kali. Tarantula season ends in October when the weather turns colder although some hang around to participate in the Halloween festivities, they feel that they belong in them. Then they go into a hole and hibernate.
We love your Toad and the TRANTULA TOO.. It is so NICE of you to pawtect the spider.
The only thing the tarantulas hurt are the bugs and scorpions they eat.
I’m so happy your are protecting the spider. They do way more good than most people or pooches realize.
Have a woof woof day. My best to your nice mom. 🙂
Kali is afraid of nothing and will hunt anything. She snatches moths out of the air. I’m a foodie but I don’t like the taste of moths.
Your better than i am, I’m not a fan of Bugs or spiders of any kind.that. Im sure they appreciated your protecting them
I’d rather have a non-venomous tarantula than a scorpion and the tarantulas pay us back by eliminating the scorpions.
We need to close our dog door because of a little terrierizer who likes to run out at 3am and bark at anything that moves BUT we can not because Shaggy the cat will pound on it so he can go out and hunt trash. Interesting times at our house. Isn’t it nice to live with all that ‘wildlife’?!
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
You’re talking about the “domesticated” wildlife, of course. Kali is the “wild child”.
Those signs crack me up. Politics are always quite the circus act.
It would be funny if they didn’t get into office to screw up everything.
It’s not Kali’s fault if you have a suicidal tarantula…just sayin’.
We didn’t put up any warning signs so they didn’t know what they were getting into.
We don’t like any bugs and would you know several Carolina wolf spiders have been spotted in my state. Why those are the size of your hand and venomous! I think they should move out to your state.
Sweet William The Scot
Why ME? Send them to Ranger who is in Carolina.
Why you, because you are always showing us those hairy tarantulas, and you did say you love them.
But they’re not harmless like my tarantulas.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, they might be good for the peeps, butts that doesn’t stop Ma from FREAKIN’ out when she sees them!!! She HATES spiders!!! She would rather have a 10 ft. snake on her than a spider!! Yuk!!! Ewwwwwwwwe!!!
I, on the other hand, likes eatin’ them. Though, I thinks that one would be just a little too hairy on the tongue..just sayin’
I’d ignore the hair and concentrate on the juicy flavor and wash it down with a Ruby Special.
Dangerous frogs and big ass spiders, no thanks you can keep them.
Aroo to you,
The politicians are more dangerous and are bigger asses.
Ya’s got some interestin stuff. All we’s got is da normal skwerrils and bunnies. And lizards too – me and Finn ain’t too interested in dem, but da cats luv messin wif em.
You’d love the javalinas.
The Arizona discus is also popular.
Only when you’re hammered.
I thought it was the toads with the white behind their ears???
Thanks for looking out for the little tarantula guy.
That’s what the president of the Phoenix Herpetological Society said.
Over here we have the Hawaiian Barking Spider which has a whole other method of attack.
Barking spider? We should be able to communicate with them.
Oh dear Kali…perhaps you should consider sending her to a Young Ladies Finishing School maybe then she’ll develop a more discerning palate?
Wally & Sammy
Kali is going to run her own. She wants to finish the wildlife here.
OMD you have some weird little critters over there. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Kali, please stay away from that toad… you will spit foam like a fire extinguisher and the vet gives you a pill and your dad gets a bill (both taste sour, specially when you lick on that toad the next day again). btw: thanks for the information about the tarantulas, seems my mom will not enter AZ not until november. Otherwise I feel sorry for your Tarantulas, because she would scream that the poor spider-guy gets a hearing loss :o)
Your mom screams a lot, it seems. Most of it seems to be directed at you.
maybe I’m a tarantula too? hahahaha
she is a chicken, butt she was the one who would spend a night in the jungle once… fortunately my dad was smart enough to say: no, thanks :o)
We have poisonous toads here too but thankfully no tarantulas! Eeek!
But they’re good guys and eat bad guys.
That, Karma, is a real gem. So is Kali. So is Kaci. SO ARE YOU ROOOOOOO! I’m not fond of spiders.
They’re smarter than the average squirrel.
I found out where that amphibian lived!
Yeah, there was a sign in his driveway…”Frog Parking Only – All Others Will Be Toad.”
That’s newt to me.
I don’t understand how you can raise and cut taxes at the same time… send the tarantula after her! 😛
One was put there by her supporters and the other by an opponent. Who knows?
