This was really cute and well crafted. One or two words gave me real fits but that's part of the fun. Good job, Bushyfox.

Remember it's about noon on Monday in Australia, so it might take awhile for Bev to be able to tell us about her pets. I'm looking forward to the stories and seeing all the puzzles!

Another warm and loving pet themed puzzle in the series.
Kudos for writing it Bev!
I didn' t have any "fox" pet inspired phrases however. Oh well.

Hi folks, thanks for playing my puzzle, and your comments!

Here's the full list, and story on each:

summer bushfires will make you cough and sting your eyes (Smoky)
home of the norse gods in asgard ruled by odin (Valhalla)
this nepalese capital is located in the heart of the himalayas (Kathmandu)
a woman who holds the title or sovereignty of a duchy (Duchess)
the extreme end apex or pinnacle (Tip)
suspended pigments in a liquid base give a multitude of color to our world (Paint)
native american tribe of the nebraska and north kansas region (Pawnee)
follows me all the time on sunny days but never trips me up (Shadow)
any dance performance or act by one person (Solo)
large versatile orange fleshed vegetable that grows on a vine (Pumpkin)

"Smoky" was a grey cat......fairly obvious, huh?

"Valhalla" was my horse, we travelled together on many adventures. He was dark grey, no dapple spots, though. His legs, mane and tail were black. A bad fall from his back got me a broken hip, but it was not his fault.

"Kathmandu" was my childhood tabby cat who always looked so wise and unworldly.
I now know cats are VERY good at cultivating that look!

"Duchess" was my pink Major Mitchell cockatoo. She always looked so regal, so she needed a name that befitted her aristocratic status.

"Tip" was my childhood red Kelpie dog....we ran together many summers thru long grass and streams. He had a white tip at the end of his tail.

"Paint" was the piebald pony on the farm we looked after awhile for a friend. Paint and I got along real well: he had a brother called "Cheyenne" who looked just like him.

"Pawnee" was my calico cat that I miss hugely. She was white with ginger and black patches, making me think of an American Indian pony. She was my favoritest cat of all time.

"Shadow" was our young black dog who would do anything to please, and was very clever at doing tricks. He followed us everywhere, wanting to see what we were doing.

"Solo" was the odd-bod in a litter of Silky Terrier X Australian Terrier pups. His mother had obviously had more than a fleeting flirtation with a black poodle......!
I adored him: I called him a "Poodelier"...the only one of his kind: hence his name. He was black and woolly, with tan markings, and a white chest. He had bright little black eyes: a very clever and adorable little dog.

"Pumpkin" was full brother to my "Pawnee"......large, ginger and sassy. He felt the world owed him a living, and spread his charms all over the neighborhood.....all folks adored him! Just as well he was de-sexed, otherwise he might not have been so popular with human folks.

Cheers, Bev

Thanks for the stories, Bev! Wow, I'm sorry to hear about the fall from your horse, Valhalla. You've really had a wonderful assortment of animals. I wish I could have met your cat duo, Pawnee and Pumpkin. Thanks again for a great puzzle!
