Re: post your pet picture thread

This is Junior, our Maine Coon, when he was only a couple months old.



Here he is today, now a year old.



Yeah. He got big.

My dogs, Phoebe and Max. Phoebe is a Rhodesian Ridgeback/pitbull mix and Max is a Border Collie mix.



And our newest addition to the family, Frankie. (Named after Mr. Sinatra for his blue eyes)

I think it possible she has some TS in her, but the little folds under her eyes are a Pekingese trait. The rescue and foster I got her from say she's a Peke, but she sure favors a Tibetan Spaniel too. I go with the Peke designation.

She looks portable too! Our bulldog Max does not understand he is NOT a lap dog. None of ours did - not even the 70 pounder! Gotta love 'em!

We've purchased several pricey cat toys for Shimmy over the last 2 years, but none of them ever interested him so much as...

You know those rings you peel off the cap of a new gallon of milk to unseal it for first use?

Screw catnip; those little curly pieces of plastic trash are like feline crack, and I have a furry addict in my house.

I think I'm going to tie one on to the end of his string!!

btw, 20 minutes ago Shimmy was sleeping on my lap and here's how it went down:

Abby brings the string over and is going to drape it on me in front of him.

me: oh crap, I'm a dead man!!

string toss...

Shimmy digs his ten claws into my flesh

me: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGH!!!

then we both laughed because it really hurt

Sonnet has had to be convinced that she IS a lapdog! She was rescued from a puppy mill, so she had to learn her social skills. She has come a long way in the last couple years. When I first come home, she is more than happy to come sit on my lap now, or rather, jump up in my face and sniff & huff her greetings. She used to not be interested at all. Now, she will spend a little while on my lap, then migrate back to the floor or to the other end of the bed/couch if there's room.

I love it. She likes to cuddle, but she is also content on her own. She doesn't constantly need to be ON me, just WITH me, as in the same room. I love her to bits.

That picture makes me want to get a cat!
I love my dog though. She's a peach.

It's wonderful that you were willing to take a chance on a rescue dog. We've taken in two and that came out 50/50. The first one was a big huggy lump of furniture (the 70 pounder who thought he was a lap dog!) who mostly slept and who we adored. The second had been abused and we had to give him back to the rescue organization - which did find an ideal situation for him - we were not willing to keep a biting dog in the house with a child with disabilities.

I was very careful in choosing a dog. I've never had one before, so I wanted to do it right. I couldn't see going with a breeder when there are so many sweet dogs in shelters and rescues that need homes. But I wanted to be sure the dog I got was right for me. I wanted a small dog. I wanted a female because I read that they were easier for first-time owners. I wanted a low-energy dog, because I'm a low-energy person. And, completely superficially of me, I wanted a soft, long-haired doggy.

I didn't do any looking in person until I found a dog that matched what I was looking for. I just knew I would be vulnerable to the first sad face I met. and that's exactly what happened. I went and met her, and immediately put in an application for her.

We're learning the whole doggie-human relationship thing together. It's fun - well, for everyone but the carpet.

Re: post your pet picture thread

^ Dallie had that problem for the first two weeks. We had taken her off the hands of her previous owners (they threw her out). She had been abused to the point where any sudden action or movement would cause her to pee on the carpet. It got pretty bad at one point, which is about the time we discovered her tail had been broken, like someone had slammed a door on it. However, we loved that little dog and knew she deserved a peaceful, safe home. It took a little while but we got her to realize that we weren't going to hurt her (mainly through my patented method of belly rubs, doggy treats and kisses on the forehead). Even today, though, if there is something sudden enough, she'll still jump like she's afraid to be hit. It makes me angry because I wonder just what they did to her before we had her.
