The book Ain’t Love Grand, looks at the mating behavior of various species throughout the animal kingdom. It focuses on three main areas in the mating process.
- Competition among males
- Elaborate male courtship techniques
- Criteria used by females when picking a mate
The book is well written, easy to read, and a bit funny. I defiantly recommend it.

Baby Ben found a new toy and he is rather pleased with himself. He is such a cute dog.
My dogs can be so good, sometimes. They will even politely wait in line for the water bowl.
I think opossums are cool animals and they are often judged to harshly.
Opossums are marsupials, which makes them a unique animal in North America.
They are omnivores and prefer to forge for food, so they make great clean up crews.
They have a powerful immune system. They are even immune to snake venom. You have to admit, that’s a seriously strong immune system.
They prefer a solitary lifestyle and are nocturnal, which makes them a bit introverted. I’m an introvert too, so I can relate.
When a opossum is threatened it goes into a shock like state and actually faints. This is an involuntary response, which kind of makes me feel sorry for the opossum. If I fainted every time I got scared, that would be embarrassing.
Ben is laying next to me on the bed and he has the hiccups. Ben is so big that each hiccup shakes the bed. I can’t sleep like this. However, he looks so cute and comfortable, so I don’t want to kick him off the bed.
This is a major pet parent dilemma.
