She is 15 years old now. Kidneys are failing but the prescribed kidney formula cat food keeps everything working okay. Lost half her tail to the front door but recovered nicely. No mouse, rat, vole, squirrel, or snake is safe in our yard.

Please meet Oscar Clark, German Shorthaired Pointer Extraordinaire! He will be 15 in November. Obviously, this collage represents him at various ages, or stages of white-face, but each picture definitely captures his essence! He was a puppy for the first seven years of his life...just BOUNDLESS energy...and has really only slowed down significantly in the last three years or so. He used to like to play catch until WE wore out. Now he's half-blind and mostly deaf, but damned if that docked tail doesn't still wiggle a mile a minute when I'm anywhere near his cookie jar! Which, by the way, now contains soft treats as he has had 15 of 42 teeth removed in the last five months...and remains unphased. He's a damn fine dog, if I do say so myself. He's Daddy's boy, but Momma's snuggle bear.

Finally someone posts a pic worthy of their pet. All pets are "cute" when you're photographing them from above and they're wondering wtf. Get down to their level.

Credit goes to my son. I like to think he got his photo eye from me. The G got her drawing ability from my lovely ex wife.

It helps that Dawg is one good looking sumbitch.

He is that.

And I'm betting sometimes he's just a sumbitch.

Our big girl, Kota, is turning 7 on DEC 1. She is a rescue, half Boxer/half Doberman, who spent the first 6 months in the shelter. We had a lot of WTF moments and had serious conversations about finding a new home. So glad we did not, she has turned out to be just the best dog. Still a horrible walker, but great dog.

The short little blonde, about to turn 9 Oct 15, is Lulu, or as I affectionally refer to her as, Toots MaGoots! She is a Yorkie (50%) Shit Tzu (25%) Poodle (25%), or a YorkieShitPoo (100% Shit) lol. She rules the house and is adored by her big little sister.

I´ve been trying to get a "pet level" photo, but every time I get down on the floor, THEY get up and walk over to see what´s going on!

I did manage to get this one of Coco, one of my other cats:

She's 13 now and slowing down considerably, but she's still all dog.  She's camped out right beside my office chair right now.

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Awesome thread, 1K.


Here's our Variety Pack. Mojo's on the left -- 130 lb. retriever/Newfie mix who thinks he's a lap dog. Shush-Yaz is on the right, 35 lb. matriarch of this clan. And that little thing in the back that looks like he was photoshopped in is Bebop, the world's most ragged looking poodle.

visitors can't see pics , please register or login



They're all rescues of one type or another.

Mojo:  ran in front of my wife's car when he was smaller than the poodle. Clearly hungry and lost, she took him in and stuck up "Found Dog" posters around the neighborhood. Turned out someone had dumped a  box of these puppies at an apartment complex near us. So, he stayed.

Shush-Yaz:  A niece and nephew working on a reservation found this stray with a broken leg and took her in. Later, they adopted a pair of children from Liberia and were told that they were petrified of dogs, so they called Aunt Michelle (my wife) who they knew would take her in. She may look like a dog, but she has the soul of a cat.

Bebop:  Sad story. Elderly couple with 25 poodles in the garage that had food thrown at them occasionally. After animal control folks got called in, the poodles were sent to shelters around the country. This one ended up in a shelter where my younger son was volunteering. The little guy, who had never seen anything but the inside of a garage for the first 5 or 6 years of his life, would just stand in the middle of his cage and shake. My son was the only person who could calm him down. They started calling my son in for extra days because Bebop wouldn't pee for anyone else. We brought him home.
Poor guy had serious PTSD. You got a sense of what life was like because for almost a year, the only way he'd eat was to sneak up to one of the food bowls when no one else was near it, take one piece, then run to a corner to eat it. It took about two years to get him to allow me to pick him up. Now, he's figured out he can eat as much as he wants and he loves to jump up on the couch and cuddle up to watch TV. He's really fascinated by MotoGP. Good boy.

From L to R:

Zil.  She died a couple years ago at age 15.  Crazy, crazy Jack Russell terrier but a great mom to all. Clifford.  Hunt terrier.  Dyson.  Rhodesian ridgeback rescue.  5 years old in this picture.  He loves every dog he's ever met and Tenner another Hunter terrier rescue.  He has anxiety issues.

Not to pile on but,

Dyson (the ridgeback in the group picture) was an intact male, chained to a concrete pad in the yard of a 7000 sq ft home in suburban Miami.  He was 2 years old when Miami-Dade animal control were notified of his condition.  He was covered in ulcers from laying on concrete.  No dog house.  He lived out his first 2 years of life in Florida.  His owners' were told they had a choice:  $100/day fine until the dog's skin was healed or surrender the dog. 

He lived at the vet's office for 6 months until his skin mostly healed (he still has large scars on his legs).  He has severe food insecurity so everything that can be eaten has to be in the oven, on high shelves or in the refrigerator.  He can open the microwave, garbage cans and mini-refrigerators.  He has extreme anxiety to thunderstorms (probably from living out with no shelter through Florida's bad weather seasons).  When he came home, he'd shake uncontrollably and sometimes would soil himself with loud thunder.

His food thing will never go away (and we accommodate) but he's much better with thunderstorms as long as we can get him covered with a blanket and he can physically touch my wife or me.

There's a special place in hell for people who abuse and neglect critters.  Finnegan was given to the shelter at 8 years of age.  He was adopted out once for a few days, but he was a biter and the family had kids.  Ive had him for almost two years and we have him mostly aggression free.  I will not let him anywhere near my grand daughter even so.  He's my constant companion when I'm home.  Again, he's also a nervous wreck in storms and abhors mail trucks with passion. Positively, there was some abuse from the first family.

I've had Samuel T. Schnauzer since he was 4 months old and hes a little sweetie.  He's nearly 11 now and still acting like a kid.  He's my baby.

Yeah, but it's a happy ending. It took a while, but he's mellowed into the sweetest dog. He loves to cuddle now, doesn't shy at all from strangers and trots over to kids for a some petting, and he knows I'll sneak him his fave vanilla ice cream every so often. The way he bounced back, he's my hero. The little man has finished strong.

And, though it's hard to tell in the picture, that's one bad ass poodle with a Mohawk.

God, what a horror story.  :beerchug: for giving him a life. He looks like a beauty.

Orange tom came to visit, liked it, and stayed. It cost him his balls but he doesn't seem to mind. Meet Stinker. Also known as Puddytat, Goof, Dork, Mister Cat, the Rotund One, and so forth. Not that he cares.

I have a soft spot for orange cats.  My buddy L.S. (Little Shit) passed on a couple years ago.

Now we're just down to one cat, Diamond.  Personality-wise she's easily my least favorite cat, and now she's old and crabby, but she's an excellent mouser.

Oranges are their own cats, that's for sure. A ton of personality with an alternately crabby or mushy demeanor.  :inlove:

This cat used to live with us, but events changed that.

Percy got hit by a car and his femur was broken in two places, as well as multiple breaks in his tibia and fibula.  Our vet (a good friend of ours) kept him at the animal hospital for a week so they could do surgery after the swelling went down, but once she got in there it simply wasn't possible to pin together.  Amputation was the only answer.

We had no idea how we were going to be able to keep him inside during recovery, since the dogs go in and out the dog (and cat) door all day long.  We also didn't know what the long term would look like for Percy, since he's very outdoor-oriented, and a real scrapper (just look at those ears).

When my wife went to pick him up after a month at the animal hospital, she mentioned her concerns to the vet.  The vet said "Well, he could stay here," with a hopeful gleam in her eye.  Evidently everybody there had fallen in love with that silly cat and enjoyed having him around.

We discussed it, and came to the conclusion it would be best for him.  So now he lives at the animal hospital and dresses up for formal occasions.

Look closely at the pic and notice the lack of near-side rear leg.

How did I miss this thread...?

Sadly I am down to just one dog. We lost Cody last fall. He his health went in a week and he had to be put down while I was away at training. Jake is a rescue and he's 16 years old. We still run daily and he still acts luck a puppy.

Jake...

And yes... that's the front of my patrol vehicle. He became a problem because he wouldn't leave the neighborhood. It took a week, but we finally got him out of town.

Looks like if you'd just scratched his back, you'd have had a friend for life.  I love bears.
