I would post a pic of an anteater to raise your armadillo dd, but it has some profanity on it (i.e. eff you). Would i get away with it? It's rather funny.

Just ask yourself how people might feel with kiddies sitting by them. I swear, but not in front of the nephew :)

Quote from: "http://wonderclub.com/Wildlife/mammals/armadillo.html"

DID YOU KNOW?
  • The nine-banded armadillo is the only armadillo species that can swim. It does this by inflating its stomach and intestines with air to keep it buoyant. It can also cross a small river or stream by walking on the bottom while holding its breath.
  • Using its long, sticky tongue, the armadillo can eat more than 40,000 ants at one feeding.
  • Armadillos sometimes fall asleep on their backs, away from the safety of their burrows. When they do, they expose their vulnerable underside to attack from predators.
  • The name armadillo comes from the Spanish word armado, which means "one that is armed."
  • When digging for prey, the armadillo avoids getting dust up its nose by holding its breath for up to 6 minutes.

Right....I had such a difficult job choosing my entry to the comp, I have so many favourite pics of my kitty, so here's a few more (and believe me...I spent long enough just trying to choose these 'few' - there are far more I could post as well!)

Aaah, snoozy kitten!:

Eh? What's that over there?:

Oh, you guys!:

Hiyaaaa!:

I love my dad too!:

Had to include this. Apologies to DD, there are chickens involved.

Evie has found a new place to reflect on the nature of predator versus prey....she finds she can get a better perspective on things.

Thank goodness for that - horrible thought he was in front of a firing squad. Spying on behalf of the donkeys or something.

Our cat got sunburn on his ears - he's got a lot of white fur and it's thin on his ears. Unfortunately he's got skin cancer there now. We're not treating it (remove the ear) because he's ill anyway with a tumor in his belly, poor chap. Still, he's into 12 weeks which is more than the 2 weeks the vet gave him. Day at a time.

I have to go up daily and put sun tan lotion on Cas's nose because he gets burnt as he is so pale (Arab cross).  We have to keep him apart from Chicory as he tries to lick if off. (DD, do I remember rightly that if someone e-mails you a picture you can post them for them, we think we know how to scan(well have done to screen saver) and can then send them to y9ou to post).

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: John on July 16, 2008, 23:18
OK - I admit it. I'm dotty about my moggys

Claudipus has always been very protective of his territory. Was a real bruiser in his day but he's also been really welcoming to new cats in the house.

Squeaky wears his heart on his sleeve. He's very affectionate but if you don't do what he wants he gets really cross, hissing and batting at you. I've never seen a cat have a temper tantrum before.

Also great to know it's not only me who takes lots & lots of my animals  my Favorite one Of Vember is this one in his Daddys climbing bag.

(http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii117/TotallyBonkers68/Sept98.jpg)

Sadly Vember died last October aged 9  :cry:  I still have what I call Vember moments and burst into tears when I see his photo or something reminds me of him. I have 6 other cats the other Siamese Millie also misses him like crazy.

Vember was a VIP his biggest claim to fame is getting me thrown out of a large clothing shop! He was in his usual place sat quietly in the baby carrier strapped to my front, there was no sign up saying no dogs/cats and it wasn't as if I was letting him walk around  :?  

He came everywhere with us missed greatly

No, it's not just you Vember, I have loads of pictures of Benny. He is so cute and being a kitten still, I want to take loads of him while he is happy to sit there and pose  :lol:

That's a lovely picture of Vember, I'm so sorry to hear he's no longer here. They all have such different personalities and they become a big part of your life and your family. I love Benny to bits so I can imagine how upsetting it is to lose a pet you love so dearly  :(

It's lovely that you have lots of good memories of him though  :)

Vember - I know what you mean. I get quite choked up thinking of Mr Cigs and Holly Bolly but we have the consolation that we did our best for them.

The worst thing is the awful last visit to the vet - I'm glad I had the courage to be there with and for them but wish I didn't have that memory.

Holly would hear my car arrive, rush around to the front and be on the roof of the car before I got out. Then she'd be on my shoulder as I got out. :)

It crossed my mind  :roll:

I picked him up and put him down and he had a huge tantrum, jumping straight legged into the air, spitting and hissing at me. Then he stomped downstairs, hissed at Val and stormed out of the cat flap.

I just love their little ways.

Thanks.  Honestly didn't notice there was a competition.  He is not only a looker but very intelligent, loving and just gorgeous.  He is our second Golden retriever and gets very offended when people think he is a golden labrador, which we don't get so much now we have moved here to Felpham, west sussex, as there are dog companions everywhere.  He loves people we used to live opposite a infants and juniour school, but isn't keen on other dogs, doesn't get aggressive just gives them a wide birth.  Couldn't really mix him with other dogs where we lived 3 years ago as they were mostly vicious uncontrollable nasty dogs.  If you know Thornton Heath  Croydon at all you will know exactly what I mean.

He even helps me with the shopping bags from the car, although he does chuck them in the garden, but hey you can't have it all.

If you look at this before Grannie Annie adds the photos you will wonder what I am going on about! Because we have just a slow dial up I can´t add photos myself.  I sent GA the photos in the post just had a pm to say she will put the photos on once I have written about them!

Lola the Jack Russel cross was from a dog rescue sanctury.  She is about 3 and a half years old.  She is very laid back, her expression never changes.  She is a sweetheart.  :D  We got Lola just after our Chihuahua was killed.  
Jumbo..... what can I say about Jumbo ...... we got him at about 6-7 weeks old, he was born out in the olive groves, with only his Mum to look after him.  He was a real fatso when he was bought to us, and he only had his Mothers milk nothing else.  He was called Chumbo at first after the Chumba´s (prickly pears) where he lived hidden by his Mum.  We thought Jumbo was easier to remember!    We have no idea what his father was- he could have been a hippo or a sumo wrestler  going by the size of Jumbo:shock:
 His mother was a normal terrier type dog, not that big.  Jumbo just has biscuits and nothing else, never given scraps, he is just a dog with ´big bones´  :shock:  He´s now on ´light´ dog biscuits and we weigh out his food every night. Jumbo is coming up for 8 months old now.  His favourite pastime is finding anything to chew (watches, (3 straps), shoes (3 pairs), OH glasses :shock: , corner of the sofa :shock: )  we love him dearly though.   :D   He is so clumsy, he keeps us entertained with his antics :lol:
Pamela

Yoohooo, this is me pretending to be Pamela!!!!  Here are the pics of Pamela's doggies.  I took a photo of her photo's as my scanners don't work with the Windows editions I've got!!!    Can you gues which one is Jumbo??? lol

Lola is a light weight doggy, she is about 11 lbs .  She does not eat that much.  The man at the refuge where we got her said they had to watch as she would just stand back and let the other dogs take all the biscuit and she would go hubgry.  When we went to get a dog, or just look to see if there was a dog I liked,  I went into the pen where Lola was with 2 other dogs, a greyhound and an Italian whippit.  I was interested in the whippit and not Lola!  I sat on the ground and called the whippit over, Lola (or Jackie as she was called then) came running over and jumped on my lap- I stroked her for a bit, put her down and tried to pick up the whippit, every time the whippit was about to get on my lap Lola jumped back up....I did manage to get the whippit on my lap, the next thing I knew Lola had her nose under the whippit and hoiked her up in the air and sat on my lap and had the whippit sitting on her head..... as the man said, he thought the dog had decided who was having me!!  
Lola chewed some cement off the hall wall the other day, I treid to tell her off, but she looked so upset and terrified I didn´t have the heart to!  She used to live outside all the time, tied up with no shelter.  Going to the refuge was a blessing for her, and for us.   :D

This is my youngest daughter (14) and Beardie Jessie (11). The picture was taken by my daughter on a timer and she played with the image a bit to soften it. My daughter isn't particularly academically gifted and I was really surprised when she showed me this and very proud. Of course the washing machine isn't great :)

Jessie has a number of medical problems now, but I really think she has been one of the finest dogs we have ever had. So soft and loving. From a puppy she responded straight away to commands and even as an older dog has surprised us with her ability to understand what we want and respond to it. We have also learnt her ways and she has taught us a number of commands :)

Aaaah Jessie looks lovely. Lovely photo actually. I never grew up with cats cos my mum was allergic to them. When I first left home the bungalow I shared had 2 cats and they instantly took to me. I remember having some real bad times in my late teens and those cats really helped me through, always there with a cuddle and a purr. Got hooked from then on and now with loads of dogs and cats I just accept each cat for itself and its independence :roll: I love em all :roll:  :D

We used to have 2 cats, Mac & Tosh, (Mac´n´tosh) get it??  They were lovely cats.  Tosh died of kidney failure and Mac had cancer in the roof of his mouth.  We had a BorderCollie X she was as daft as a brush.  Late in life, she discovered she could open the front door :shock:   We had to keep it locked after that, cos if Panda thought she was bored, or the dishwasher was on (she didn´t like it) she would rush out the front door :shock:   The first time she did it she went off in the dark, across a railway line and onto the main road  into town :shock:  Panda would have let anybody in the house, except the window cleaner- she really hated him :lol:  Pets certainly keep us entertained!
Love the siamese cat, here they give them away, they don´t like them!!

The pretty basset pup in the photo was taken out today - went to the local village fair (I thought there was going to be a 'pet' show.....) Turns out it was a full blown Dog show - proper classes & all.... entered pup for a bit of a laugh (won't walk on a lead, is a typical stubborn basset)

Anyway, with the aid of a handful of cold chips, he won Best Puppy!! Got a beautiful trophy, a big red rosette, & 2 bags of red mills kibble!! woohoo!

He still has a cold but hes put on loads of weight and even plays now :wink: he is number 13 cat now, all rescued in one way or another, I really do have to stop but I say that every time and over here its just impossible :oops:  :roll:

Do horses count as pets? This is Red on the first day we brought him home. A 17yo retired cow horse that spent his life herding cattle and used as a roping horse. He is still a stallion and is just like a kitten, till you put him on a cow then hang on!

This is a shot of Fool's Gold with Sundance standing behind, Gold is an '03 baby with a bad scar on his neck from a stallion attack while still a very young colt the people we got him from didn't think that he would amount to anything because of it so he was really cheaply bought. Sundance is a gelding and 17yo. I can put colts with him and nobody can go into the pasture but the wife and I, he acts like a guard dog for those colts.

This was our wonderful Chihuahua Barney who was killed in Jan 2008 by a Bull Mastiff while he was being boarded at a ladys house who dog sat.  Barney was the most wonderful dog, a day doesn´t go by that we still don´t miss him.  
Barney had a very long tongue that was always poking out :lol:
We have lovely memories of Barney, it was a shame they were for only 3 years though :cry:

nnbreeder, my sis had an old rodeo horse many years ago. She got him when he was about 17 yrs old. Must be the standard retirement age. but that horse had lot of tricks left in him, like opening all the other stalls in the barn so that the cows could poop everywhere instead of just their stalls. Dad finally had to install special locks that the horse couldn't manipulate with his mouth, or get into the feed storage stall. He was over 25 when he became seriously ill and had to be put to sleep. My sis cried for weeks afterward.

Vember, it must be litter box day every day at your house  :lol:

... are complete and utter timewasters.  Alfie prefers not to sleep on his own, so if Harvey's out and he's tired he wants to sit on your lap or for you to sit with him while he snoozes ...  :roll:

I love them to bits though, and as John says their tummies definitely need tickling as they sleep on their backs a lot and although Harvey does have it, it's more noticeable on Alfie ... they have curly tummy hair, like long haired sheep ...  :lol:

the one with the black head and legs is the same one that is in the top pic, just summer trimmed - he had jumped in what we lovingly call the pond, but it really just a plastic liner about 3ft long with a lot of mud and a little water! It must have smelt nice to him - it took ages to get that mess off him - it was stinky and slimy too!

The donks are adorable  :D

Pal of mine had a staffy, she was lovely but he took in a rescue dog that had been really badly treated and it scared me silly. The female staffy came over and I swear she was protecting me from him in her body language so he backed off.

Felt so sorry for him (despite being scared) - great dog but spoilt. They had to rehome him again because he was trying it on with their lad and you don't risk your kids.

wow we need him over here . i got 2 sick chickens an a horse that aint to bright again ethier , he keeps going of his food an stops going to the toilet for about 4 days but he seems fine in himself , my vet has been out and all we can think of is him being very touchy about a lot of things an if he gets stressed he becomes ill or if there is change in any way thats can make him ill , it can be differcult  , next lot of tests will be blood one an they are expensive.

We have stuff here called Pneumobiotiue which treats all the coldy type symptoms in chooks. Comes in a packet and you add it to the water, do you have same stuff over there :?: As for the horse,  well I am lucky there too cos when I had mine I had my friend who is a horse whisperer come over....OMG fantastic, the 33 year old was a changed horse in no time bless him, would recommend if you havent been down that road yet :wink:
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: karlooben on December 21, 2008, 20:35
i have experienced horse whisperers before wiith ben and i was shocked . but ben is 8 now an he wont let alone ride him at all. all my horses were rescued from pure neglect , they were beaten and straved when they were less then a year old so all that has stuck with them so it makes it harder to do anything with them. same as my dogs they are all rescues as well.

The snarl/grin looks fierce, but in real life its just his gormless look! He also sits with his legs wide open showing his erm....tackle....but thats too naughty for a family forum  :shock:

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Kiwi on January 04, 2009, 23:56
Is a golden doodle the same as a labradoodle?
Cos the big blonde shaggy one and the chocolate shaggy one are lab poodle crosses and the toffee coloured fleecy one is a retriever poodle cross. Is Charlie one too?
He looks very snuggly! They're such a lovely cross, so friendly and lovable and a little bit daft!  :D

p.s. your grandson is gorgeous too!
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: sclarke624 on January 05, 2009, 02:21
I meant retriever poodle cross.  Yes charlie is a golden retriever.  Various People I've met on the promenade here have retriever poodle crosses, think the name for golden retriever poodles isn't so clear cut thoug as have heard two different names for them can't remember now.  they are gorgeous though and so are the ones we have met........soppy/daft and very lovable.  Most I have seen are quite large though.  They have such a comic face like they are up for a laugh.

Hmmmm! thomas is loverly as well but after two weeks glad too see him go back home to his mummy hehe..........exhausting....nappy bottle feed shoes on shoes off forgotten how all consuming it was :lol:  :lol: think charlie was pretty pleased when it was time for Thomas to go home as well at 7 and half he is used to his peace and quiet.

As I was trying to describe to Scribbler in a PM, on Tuesday I really felt that I had been put in a jet fighter plane and faced with a control panel that I knew nothing about.  I didn't want to push the button that 'blew up Russia'. (If that makes sense). But with someone behind me (Well two of them) they gave me the confidence to 'have a go' but who is now sat at the dinning room table sorting out their laptops, yes. Paul.
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: John on February 01, 2009, 10:25
As a member you shouldn't be able to damage anything or blow up Russia, love the analogy btw. Aunt Sally and I, being administrators can do damage so we're treading carefully. The controls you see are a little different but our admin panel is far more complicated. Better because we can do so much more but finding out how to do it is difficult.
As I said elsewhere, it had to upgrade for security and in the early days we nearly closed down because of the spammers.  The software that runs this is far more secure.

Francis is a bit scarey, only got one eye or is this his better profile?

Waffles has only one eye. She lost it in an agrument with a vehicle. And no, she's not scary, she is quite, quite beautiful. She's my girl.  :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2:  ;) :)

In the argument with a vehicle she lost an eye (eventually), jaw out of whack, skull fracture, broken ribs, pelvis fractured in four places so it was completely detached from the spinal column and had open fracture of the femur (now with metal rod in it keeping it together). She's quite a cat, as she has 'nursed' me through a chronic illness that had me virtually bedridden for best part of a year, and still is a mighty huntress of rodents despite having only one eye, and only one fang (she's an elderly lady now). She climbs tress with the best of them and has been knwon to scale a 2m high fence with a rabbit in her jaws.

Francis is a stray taken in that took over a year to get back to full health. He's a sweetie, also now an elderly cat. Very much his daddy's cat and he loves hens. He guards 'his' hens in the garden when The Laydeez are free-ranging and he has been known to nap in the henhouse straw.. the hens don't mind him at all. A vet wanted us to euthanise Francis several years ago, on the grounds that Francis was in acute renal failure and was not going to last more than a couple of days. That was several years ago and Francis is still with us, hale and hearty, and does not require any medication.

Marble is a feral rescue (also now elderly) who is terrified of the hens. He's my 'bad cat' as he's usually where he's not supposed to be and can send a fax...

The robin is just brave or foolhardy  :D

.........and last but not least. This is Rex. My big boy!
I found him 7 1/2 years ago, no-one claimed him so I kept him.
He is a big softie and has been an uncle to a litter of puppies and all the cats!
He doesn't like strange dogs though so it has been a relief to be able to walk him on our own property now we've moved.

Oh Photoboy you have some amazing photos there ... and that last one is absolutely adorable.  I have been looking for a picture for a mailshot and that one would have been brilliant!

Here's my best boy Alfie ... he's featured here before, but this time he looks sensible!

(http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u51/wellingtons_photos/alfie-2.jpg)

He's the one with the dodgy heart, calicivirus and possibly FELV or FIV, but perhaps you can see why I'm not giving up on him!

Wellingtons, you are more than welcome to use the "thoughful" pic of missy for a mail shot (or any others), just send me your email and I will send you a high res copy, no probs!
Alfie is beautiful, and a really lovely natural light portrait of the dear chap!

Here is my little snow leopard Missy..one of 5 cats that kindly let me share their home and garden.

I totally love this photo and cat... can I please have her? pretty please?

I don't think my OH would be best pleased if I gave Missy away, she is her princess!
Also you would regret it, she is adorable, and beautiful to look at, but can be quite a little handful!

I can get as many pictures I want of Alfie, but his dozy brother Harvey is scared of the camera, and that nasty clicky noise ... but I did manage to get him last week.

He's not such a chocolate box boy as Alfie, but he is a sweet natured poppet.  He's going to be true to his (half) breed though, he's already very tall and going to be a very big cat.  Shame he's such a wuss really.

Tiger:

all growed up:

Domino:

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y108/oconnka4/Kitten%20pics/P5050099.jpg)

I rescued both Tiger and Domino from a barn when they were little more than 4 weeks old.  They both had raging FHV eye infections.  Unfortunately Tiger's eyes never completely recovered, and he has symblepharon in each eye... not that he allows his limited vision to slow him down... he is still the number one fly catcher ans spider killer in the house  :wub:


Then we have Apricot:

and Mystery:

And finally my gorgeous man, Pinto:

Hi

This is Jake. He is a rescue dog but is a pure bred Papillon. We have had him for 3 years and in that time he has travelled with us to 10 countries across Europe, the furthest being Bulgaria. We are off to Poland and Slovakia soon so that will make it 12. The Eastern European countries really bring home the ideals of grow your own/make your own and have certainly inspired my cooking and preserving. I owe a large debt of gratitude to my Bulgarian friends for their recipies and ideas.

Angus, they are just adorable! They look quite delicate ( I suppose I mean dainty). Are they quite delicate or are they rufty tufty like most dogs can be when they feel like it?

Lorna.  :)

Post by: Angus on October 07, 2009, 17:40
they are a bit dainty they would race around all day with each other if we let them they also love comfort.  as a breed they prefer their own king or other hound types like whippets.  but for us they are perfect family dogs ::)

Hi, Vickie.

If you're trying to post a photo from your machine, the size should noy be more then 640 x 480 pixels. But even at that size the forum will not accept it if it's "high quality".
You must either save it in jpeg form, with a "medium" quality, or reduce the size to about
500 x 375.

Do you have Photoshop or similar to resize your photos ?
I find resizing with Photobucket takes a long time.

If you want something to display and treat your photos, that's easy to use, and FREE, then look for PHOTOSCAPE on Google: you'll find there's a free download of their photo editor that works well.

link to photoscape (http://www.photoscape.org/ps/main/index.php)

Download "Pixresizer" from here:

http://download.cnet.com/PIXresizer/3000-12511_4-10607499.html

It's a handy little utility that will resize a folder full of photos to whatever size you wish with just a couple of clicks.

Our new boy "Catsby" a beautiful male Bengal 3 years old we rescued the poor chap after he was shoved from home to home for being aggressive to people, he was just misunderstood and is fitting in well with the other 8 cats now!

Well there are plenty of Bengal breeders out there, although they are pretty expensive and quite a high maintainence pussy! Lovely to look at not so easy to live with, once described by the Daily Express as ASBO cats! There are lots that need rehoming so I would look at this rather than a kitten, and btw they take no nonsense from doggys!

Our Mr Squeak has the most wonderful temper tantrums. When thwarted, he jumps at you spitting and hissing. He's easing up a bit now, hasn't drawn blood for weeks! However, he really got me a little while ago. I was dozing and he was on my lap. Then he sat up and peed on me. About 15 gallons.

Cat's! Those that love them are mad by definition  :)

Thats our tiny Bengal girl Missy John, inside she is bullied a little but she is a really confident "outside" girl and so loves to chase the others, that is our 2 stone rescue Ragdoll cross Mr T looking in fear as the little devil chases him.
The cat looking out of the scrap car is another rescue Bengal Catsby, he doesn't really do leaping. He looks more like he is waiting for the AA to tow him out of the snow!

These are my two pet rats, Emil (the white one with the brown spot on the nose) and Toni (the brown hooded one). They are now 6 months old and really cute, intelligent and entertaining little fellows. Both come running if I call them and like to play with a feather waggler cat toy, like little cats  :).

Hi

I also don`t like it that they have such a short lifespan (the oldest rat I ever had was only 3 years old, most died around 2 years old). You get so used to them because they are so affectionate little animals which really demand your attention, so it is even more sad if they are going.

I had a lot of pets (cat, guinea pigs, hamster, tortoise and more) but rats are still my favourite pets.

Your rats are beautiful. I love them as pets as they are quite unlike the horrible ones that you find in the garden.
Farley rat was my best friend when I was an angst ridden teenager..... he listened to all my teenage woes! :D I got him when I was 13 and he was 4 when he died.
Daphne rat was Jacobs first pet when we lived in flats when he was little.
She was laid to rest in my parents garden by the daffodils, which are now called the 'Daphne-dils'  :D
If it wasn't for Bea having such an interest in small furry things that move quickly I'm sure we would get some more. x

 Dog is called Spike (after Spike Milligan) & is a patterdale terrier, mad as a box of frogs.

 Cat is called Daisey & we got her as a rescue Cat about 5 years ago, she is a lot healthier now than when we got her but is still timid around kids.

We have two dogs, a 7 year old labrador bitch, Bonnie, and a 7 month old cross bred lab, Bella. Bonnie was homed to us after her owner's boyfriend took a dislike to her (I know what I would have done! >:() She is an absolute joy who you can take anywhere and everybody loves her, she has been with us for over three years. Bella came from lab rescue, we got her at 8 weeks old after she had already been homed twice! She made herself at home straight away, "killed" all Bonnie's toys she'd had for years and decided Bonnie made a great hottie. Bonnie was horrified and demanded we send Bella back! They are now great friends and play for hours evey day. Bella is a little terror sometimes though, but very funny. We don't have any pics available of Bella as a tiny pup...named Teeny Tiny by the rescue...they are on disc "somewhere. Hope the other pics work;
Bella at 4 months with Bonnie

I love this thread and this forum. I only joined yesterday and already I know how to make my own paper pots and, even better, my own Baileys :D

I can't believe I've just sat here totally hooked for an hour and a half by all your lovely pet photos.

Here's our rescue baby. We've had her for 8 years and she's still scared half to death by anything new, so god knows what happened to her before she was rescued by the CPL. She's spent most of the winter in this spot. In fact we were beginning to think she'd melted onto the rad!

Well she has certainly got it made, but I know what you mean about their former lives. Our little fella had had broken ribs and a broken jaw before we got him and he is still wary of men. He barked at John non stop for 2 days when we got him. Still he has a good life now so thats making up for the past :) as I am sure your lovely cat thinks the same.

lovely looking cat  :D
Our Neapolitan mastiff is a right scardy thing - if something has been moved in the yard she barks at it like it's an intruder (she's just the same with visitors) and we've had her since she was 8 weeks old - she was born in a rescue centre and apparently her mum was just the same so she must have inherited it from her.

An Emperor Scorpion, and would that be Clash of the Titans? I seem to remember a bag of blood resulting in giant scorpions in order to battle Perseus.

Azrael and Biscuit are allowed in the room the rats are kept with human supervision purely because we've had them since kittens, they've learned that they're not to go near the cages. Never in the same room whilst the rats are free ranging though, as much as I trust them whilst the small furries are somewhat unattainable they're both from farm cat stock. Montgomery is not allowed in the same room even with supervision because he was a reluctant barn cat with a history of rat catching. He got in once and showed far too much interest in the cages. The rats don't care about their presence, but again since we've had them since they were young and they came from a house with cats they're used to the scent. Generally though I try and make sure they're never in the same room, Biscuit and Az only come in because they've developed a taste for the hedgehog mix :|

I wondered if it was a scorpion - makes me shudder!

I think rats are quite cute - I used to chat with one down at the allotment (I'm taking the pills now though) - I saw something on telly about wild rats could tell if a human had bad intentions towards them. Certainly Ben the allotment rat didn't seem bothered by me.

However our 5 cats think small furry creatures are actually toys - so maybe not a good pet.

Reminds me of a week long camp with 40 children... it rained a great deal.

Just outside our kitchen door there was a small hole and one evening a cute little nose sticking up out if it. I spotted this and thought I had discovered a mole so dropped little tit-bits near the hole until, after a few days, the creature down the hole was almost taking food from my hand... until I was reliably informed it was a rat!  :tongue2:    :tongue2:   :tongue2:

From then on I used the other kitchen door!  :tongue2:

PS. Jack's lovely Gemma!

Yes he's grown SOOOOOoooooo quickly I can't believe it! I want him to be small again :-(

Although saying that now he's bigger we can go on "proper" walks so that's also good ...

I keep Budgies and a parrot, at one time I had a lot more Parrots five at one point but times change and I now have one Parrotlet called Squeak and four Budgies called Sky, Frank, Babe and budge

Here are the budgies, Babe, Sky, Budge and Frank
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v437/kenderworld/fourinarow.jpg)


And this is Squeak he is a Parrotlet only four inches tall but nobody told him that, he's full of attitude and thinks he's boss. I also run a website dedicated to these little Parrots not sure if I am allowed to link to it though.

Post by: John on August 21, 2010, 23:41
Lovely looking birds - your Squeak is almost as pretty as our grumpy cat, Mr Squeak.

Just to explain, I don't mind someone linking to their own website when appropriate but we've had a number of people who abuse the forum by using it as an advertising medium for their own site. So then we get into arguments and people saying 'well you let so and so link to their web site so why can't I link to my online shop?' <sigh>

Nice budgies. Do they talk? I used to have a Harlequin who talked a blue streak as well as bite my ear if I didn't talk to him. And did this bird love popcorn! I had to fight him off to get any, the big pig  :D Naturally, he had the run of the house and sometimes we had to fish him out from behind wall pictures and dressers when he slipped behind them.

Thanks John Its only an info site so no advertising.

Hi Trillium not they dont talk although sometimes it sounds like they are :) they have each other so no real need to interact with me they always have time out of the cage and so does the Parrotlet they normally just side and whitter to each other ... oh yea and poo a lot  :D

LOL
Indie as a kitten:
(http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy37/TheSpartacat/1.jpg)

And still a kitten at heart:
(http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy37/TheSpartacat/2.jpg)

Indie will fall asleep anywhere. We have a collection of photos with her in some very random sleeping poses:
(http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy37/TheSpartacat/3.jpg)

And some of her strange sleeping poses are slightly lacking in decorum!!! But always worth a laugh:
(http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy37/TheSpartacat/4.jpg)

This is her brother Iggy... watching tv!!! It was Bill Oddie I believe... he likes a bit of Springwatch:
(http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy37/TheSpartacat/6.jpg)

Not impressed with the cat harness we got for him for a road trip... but sometimes I really think he's half human with some of the poses he does. He sat in that "one arm leaning against the chair" pose for about a half hour, so it wasn't a fluke!
(http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy37/TheSpartacat/7.jpg)

Why the couch is generally off limits:

A mouse that came and teased them on a nightly basis on the patio:

Evie they all get on as long as they remember the pippin is top dog lol. The chickens have now grown to 7 (more ex bats). I did have eight but Jay fancied sniffing one of them and they got frightened to death.

Rory Gallagher is a vary rare breed indeed. We call him a staffador (half staffie half lab). well every one else calls their dogs posh names lol. He is the biggest whimp. If the cat(btw I have two fo them too pebbles and gizmo) lets the chickens in the house he cant get far enough away like the back of the sofa. He has even been know to hide in my bed (under the covers!) in case they got him.

Scabs I love your little collection and yes i would probably have even more but the OH drew the line. I am however allowed to foster cats and dogs as long as I promise not to keep them. He never said anything about more chooks so I am saving like mad for a new hen house tee hee

Stoopid cat - it never bothers the chickens but curiosity of what goes on in their shed certainly go tthe better of him!

Aww ty!  She is adorable.  She's a lovely natured dog, doesnt ever nip the kids even at their most boistrous.  She tolerates the hens, and sleeps with the cat.   The only 'bad' thing is that I can't ever let her off the lead when we're out and about as she just runs off and wont come back no matter what I do.

I have aqnother dog too, must find a pic of her!

Jambo went in the coop for a nosy the once, but now he prefers to lounge around on the roof of their shed!  I guess it's a good vantage point to survey his kingdom from asit's up on legs and is quite high.  He is the laziest, fattest but most wonderfully loving cat I have ever known.  He gets in the kids dolls pram and gets wheeled all round the house and local park, and doesnt even mind when he ends up wearing a baby grow and bib!  :ohmy:

our 3 girls are related, they were burmese breeders, the woman had 60 cats in her house and these were taken out, two dont have any teeth any more and the 3rd (ingrid) the pale cream/ ginger one has just a few teeth, they were removed for their health when they were at the rescue. we think Ingrid is mum to Allanah, who is mum to Eve, eve is 10 years old now and Ingrid 13
Sooty and Pheonix are the two black boys with white blazes (brothers), and Boots is the Black Tom, Zed is the Ginger tabby. Eve (the one missing in the photo) is a slightly chubbier brown burmese than Allanah, but with warmer colours.

They're all Cat Protection cats.  Merlin and Pandora (she's the black in the pic of Freya) are siblings we got them in 2001.  Pandy was the timid one but after a few years she comes to family.

The following year we got Loki and Freya, they're siblings too.  Loki is ginger and a tart  like Merlin :lol:  The people who were going to have Freya decided they didn't like her, so she came home with us :D  She was painfully timid but after 8 years she's fine with us, I think it was wee Evie who got her calmed down.  So now every night she sits on my knee, Freya that is, purring away quite the thing :D :D :D

They're also very vocal, which surprises everyone who visits, well you have to be in our house ::) :lol:

 :lol: :lol: :lol: love the names John and the photo :D

We had decided on names for all of ours before we got them but they just didn't suit them, so we just waited for their personalities to show.

Pandora was easy, she kept disappearing up the chimney, behind the sofa and in boxes :lol:

Merlin, her brother, has always been very laid back, looks after all of them and is the daddy of the family :D

Loki is ginger, cheeky, loving, a baby, always finds even the tiniest ray of sun and is very, very mischievous  ::)

Freya, his sister is beautiful and soft, now she's decided she loves fusses life is wonderful :D



Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: John on November 25, 2010, 23:46
I think some of our cats are badly named..

Dexter (the serial killer) is as soft as a brush. He's a gentle giant lover, not a fighter.

Mr Squeak is the most bad tempered, growling, hissing cat you ever met. I love him to bits.

Lotty (in the picture) is the most determined, strong but sweet cat. She's got this little pyramid cat tent into which she has taken her toys and anything else she fancies pinching. Including a sock she ran off with as I was getting ready for bed. :)

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Caralou on November 26, 2010, 00:19
Lotty is a little Angel - for a kit that had to be shaken into life she has a very determined character and is the most vocal kit ever! Dexter the softest cat ever, and Niblet the most fussable feral you will ever meet  :D

WE had to try to teach him English too, still responds better to ici then come!

Perhaps Badger likes the warmth of the coat.

I am in the process of making a little jumper for when we walk out into town with him or to the market or watching a football match,, when he can't run to keep warm.  It needs more permanent fastenings, but he enjoyed wearing it in Toulouse last week - not sure if it was the warmth or the curious/admiring glances that he liked though.  He's loves the attention.

Lol, My fiance had a cat years ago which he inherited as a rescue. The previous owner had found him as a kitten and it stayed wild and impossible to handle and so they gave him up after a couple of years...
 A vet later pronounced it to be a Kellas Cat, or a Kellas mix- Huge monstrosity of a cat, hated most people, and fought with anything that moved.
He also had one eye.
He called him Claudius.... I, Claudius.

The cat 'tolerated' my fiance so he hasn't been too badly wounded from the live in arangements with a mental moggy!

Nice to hear of another Claudius!

Argyllie i can tell you Poppy is only ever happy in a picture if shes dirty!  Poo, mud, water, swamp if shes in it shes smiling - revolting creature that she is :D   

:D That sounds just like my Poppy! :D She comes back Collie-coloured, an alternative description for muddy from head to toe, and looking very happy indeed when she finds somewhere very dirty to get into.

Love your pics :D

My two are Cherry a cream lucher and Jack the chocolate Labrador. Both are rescued and both are around 8 1//2. jack is blind, but manages very well, his favourite pastime is retrieving BIG things from water! Cherry thinks he's round the twist to even think about going in water :lol:

They're lovely too Nicki! :D Both look very wise which isn't always what you might expect from a Spaniel!  :D ::)
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Nicki85 on March 01, 2011, 14:17
Thank you  :tongue2:

The Spaniel is probably the cleverest dog I know!  She has done agility and obiedence in her time and managed to get her gold kennel club award for being such a good dog!  She is 12 now, 13 this year, those photos were taken last year.  I love her to bits  :blush:

The cat is probably the most daft cat ever, he is a Ragdoll and has no self preservation skills.  He is really an indoor cat but goes out for a few hours in nice weather.  He spends most of his time rolling on his back padding his big paws into the air asking for a belly stroke.... Odd Ball!

lovely dogs Mazzie and Rhiannon, I am looking for another giant breed rescue puppy (needs to be a puppy as female Neapolitan Mastiffs don't take too kindly to another adult female joining the group) but these are few and far between as giant breed puppies fetch too much money sadly - still one will come along in time.



Joyfull - have a browse of the Three Counties Rescue (I don't do techy things like links!) - at present  they have a Neapolitan girl & also a mastiff

thanks for that - just had a look but sadly they are too old. One of the mastiffs shows the common problem of not getting on with other adult females which is why I am looking for a pup. I introduced my two to my sons male staffie (age uncertain as he is a rehomed dog as well) and whilst they were fine on neutral territory (as they always are when out walking) on home ground it was not so good. I think getting a pup would allieviate this problem especially as it is a known massimo problem  :(.

However........he had scrambled duck egg for his breakfast this morning ( given not very often) he is currently lounging on *his* quilt on *my* settee and has the vilest eggy wind known to man..... :tongue2: :mad:  he best be getting rid of that before he gets to sleep in my room tonight!

My JRT is good like that too - only snaps when trying to rinse out his eye..and only gives one bark to be let in.  Everybody seems to have such a bad opinion of them.  He doesn't go for the chickens, but did chase the guinea fowl a friend gave us, as well as the ducks, he seems to know the difference....  If the chickens make a noise he is at the coop like a shot to make sure thay are OK, or if they are out, he goes out every half hour or so to make sure they are all there!  he is a diamond.

 I dont know why  JR have such a bad name.  People say to me when meeting mine that they didnt know they could be such nice quiet friendly little dogs. Perhaps some are just the wrong dog in the wrong place  :unsure:

I lost my old Beardie a month or so ago and i still miss her to bits.  She was such a friend, never criticised and never questioned my decisions.   Yes, homes do seem very empty without these old timers.  :(

None of our animals ever go for the others, its really odd, occasionally a gerbil or hamster will catch a cats eye for a second but thats as far as it goes. We keep the piggy cage open all the time and neither dog or cats have ever gone for them, when we get them out sometimes doggy will come up and lick them but then get bored after a couple of seconds!!

Sadly, my dear old lab passed away in her sleep after supper on Wed. I had to go out for a few hours and she must have died soon after I left. Before I went out we spent some time hugging and kissing, and I had no idea it would be our last time. The cancer took her so quickly that it caught us off guard. Buried her today near the veg garden so we'll always be near.

Hi Trillium, Im sorry for your loss, but be glad she left knowing you loved her.
I still miss my dear rough collie I lost 20 years ago, I wish she could have passed in her sleep rather than having to hold her while the vet did the deed.
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Trillium on July 03, 2011, 18:09
It was always hardest to have to take them to the vet for that final visit than to have them pass on their own. Far more peaceful for everyone I think. My beloved cat, Puddytat, died of a heart attack while I walked him around the yard checking out flowers. We had no warning at all and we all miss him dearly after many years.

Here's  a happy pic of my choccy lab, Jack. We have just come back from a long weekend in the Isle of Wight and he had a whale of a time retreiving his training dummy from the sea. It's the one thing he really enjoys, now that he is totally blind. We put bells on is, so he knows which direction to run for it. :D

Love both your dogs! I have a soft spot for labs and lurchers, it was a toss up to see which would win, but Bonnie came along needing a home first. OH was a firm lurcher man before he met this lab, now he's confused!!!!!! :D

It's so lovely to see your lab doing what labs do best, despite his disability. I know of another who is just the same. She was found confused on the street, unable to see much, in very good condition. It is assumed she was abandoned when it was realised she had problems. She's a very happy and confident girl now, and retrieves like your Jack, noisy things.
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: MJS on July 26, 2011, 18:10
Thanks Tosca100 :D

Jack used to be a gundog and was going to be shot when he got completely blind, so we had him for company for Cherry. She had been lonely since our greyhound died. They are like chalk and cheese, but get on so well. Jack has an array of "squeaky" "honking" and any other variety of ducks, pheasants etc and he does like to get the same one that you throw for him.
Cherry is also a rescue, abused girlie, but she has come on in leaps and bounds over the seven years we have had her.
I'm so glad your friend's dog has found a happy home too.  :D

(are those your dogs on your profile pic? they are happy looking dogs too. )
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: tosca100 on July 26, 2011, 18:33
Those are both our dogs. The black one came from lab rescue at 8 weeks old, having already been sold twice(as a lab, which she clearly wasn't......
(http://i673.photobucket.com/albums/vv100/tosca100-dog/bella051.jpg)

But we thought the lab needed a friend (she was re-homed privately....unwanted) and although she disagreed, they are now firm friends.

Jess, the blind dog, also came from lab rescue, and her story was so amazing she won Dog of the year at the annual fundraising funday. She is stunning. Not a good photo, but this is her winning the fancy dress....so undignified....

Thanks Argyllie, they are both a bit special and I think I'm lucky to own them. We're Archies fourth or fifth (and forever) home and he's a cheeky lil man with no manners or social skills but he's learning...slowly! He's a right scruffbag and has awful bedhair but he just loves a play, learning new tricks and a cuddle, I think he's just not had any attention or discipline before.

Trevor was rescued from a drug dealers flat where they had him living in a rabbit hutch. He's a bit like a toddler with OCD and will not go anywhere without a ball and will get in a stroppy panic if he can't find one. Also he has a strange and totally irrational fear or trumpets! If there is one on the telly he will jump a mile and bite at the floor :wacko:

I find it really sad that somebody just didnt want these two, they might not be perfect examples of their breeds, well behaved or well trained but they make me smile everyday and I love my "rejects" ...they're perfect to me  :)
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: tosca100 on July 29, 2011, 09:48
Know exactly what you mean! Our's both have behavioral quirks because of their former lives, and the black one has been a huge challenge, just starting to get somewhere now she is two years old. The lab has "fears" which are hard to avoid sometimes. Wouldn't be without them though. :)

Your two are gorgeous! :D

Poor Archie! Our Buster (my avatar) was a rescue and we were his 4th home at the age of approx. 16 weeks. Being a Terrier he knew what was right and could have a bit of a temper before he learned from us that there wasn't any need to be like that then grew into the most biddable and sociable little chap for the rest of his 13 years. 18 months on, I still miss him terribly.

I'm sure both your boys will calm down and settle in nicely. :)

Rescue dogs often turn out to be the best. I had a few and they were wonderful friends. After the loss of my beloved lab last month, I've just taken in another rescue dog, Lyra (will definitely change that name as I can never remember it), a black lab/miniature collie mix. I suspect I'm about the 7th home she's had in her 3 years, and what an absolute sweety of a dog. She even pees on command and adores hugs and belly scratches. Very desired traits in any dog  :D

You're right about most rescued dogs, although I 'adopted' a German Shepherd once for Brian, it pooped all over the house, even on the lounge carpet, but when I told Brian I wasn't clearing it up anymore, he made her a bed in the garage, and she never pooped in there at all!

But Pennydog is an angel!  We took her from Brian's Mum's, Best Friends Granddaughter 9 years ago, and never looked back.  she is such a sweetie!

Brian's grandson hated dogs, even Penny because he was frightened by a JRT when he was 2.  This was him FINALLY 2 months ago!  (He's nearly 10 now, same as Penny!)

My house is a bit like a circus at times with the 2 JRT's and the Westie chasing each other - it's worse when it is raining and the don't do their chasing in the garden  :tongue2:
As for leading each other on, they sure do that but I think I have asserted my leadership *cough splutter* and I am (should be :wacko: ) the pack leader - so far so good hehe 
It has been pretty hard going the past couple of years as I was walking them individually, then later I put one jrt and the westie together on a walk then walked the second jrt on his own.  We started (only last week) to walk them all 3 together and so far so good.  Doesn't help they are all the same age but I am told they calm down when they hit 3 (seeing IS believing in this case).
In case you are wondering about why I did separate walks - try taking 3 terrier pups on a walk together and it will be self explanatory  :D
I could regale you with stories the boys have gotten up to in the past but it would be an essay long post  ::)  Needless to say we have had our ups and downs with them but I would not swap them for the world.

On the rescue dog front, we got 2 JRT's from the RSPCA in 1999 when they were 5 years old.  They were brother and sister and they gave us 10 years of pure joy.  I am not sure why we didn't get rescue dogs again other than I really wanted a Westie and they are few and far between in the rescue world. 

If I had my way I would have way too many pets - I am just a big softie when it comes to animals and have a tendency to treat them better than I would most humans (I am probably going to get shot for that comment  :wub: )

Same here....Hubby can get his own brekky but on cold mornings the Boys and I have tea and porridge  :D

It was a while before we could walk both of ours together, Archie would bark at everything because he'd never been walked before and he was very nervous and thought things were just out to get him ...cyclists, wheelie bins, cars, lamp posts, the lot! which would set Trevor off and I felt quite sorry for our neighbours but now they are fine and they both love a good walk but they are both total mud magnets  ::)

Quite a surprise as it was supposed to be in the garden. It had wandered in through the conservatory, dining-room, along the hall and up a flight of stairs!!

Carrot time I guess.

Another surprise... it about turned and hopped all the way down and back out again.  :lol:

aww thank you hes lovely bless him, although last week he was really poorly had sickness and the runs :( they had to hospitalise him for 3 days because of the worry of dehydration, they though he might have a blockage due to the violence of the sickness it was such a worry but they  gave him a barium meal and x rayed him several times, it turns out it was a bug he'd picked up, he had been out off territory for the first time 2 days earlier so the vet said she thought it was that and him being so young got him harder than adult dogs, anyway hes bounced back and putting his weight back on now! i really should take proper pics of him not just from phone :)

All the way there I kept telling Val we could only have one and that was that. She had to stop me bringing another one home as well. It's heartbreaking how many poor cats and dogs are being dumped. Honestly, trusting and wonderful pets just dumped because their feckless owners couldn't be bothered to have them spayed.

When I rang the lady said she was so happy we wanted to take one not dump another. I could see why when we got there.

I'm expecting an awkward few days as they become part of the pride but that's normal. Both off to the vets tomorrow for vaccinations and a check over followed by their ops when appropriate. Amber just ate 4 sachets of cat food - she's a bit out of condition and thin from her motherhood. We'll add a little SA50 vitamins to the food to help boost them as well.

If you are looking for a pet please consider rescue charities - kittens are lovely but older cats are grateful and less hard work (usually...)

Our thanks to Freshfields Animal Rescue (http://www.freshfieldsrescue.org.uk/)

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: John on November 24, 2011, 15:47
Well it's not going well - Luther, the black boy, has a bit of a cold. Hoping it's not flu. He's had an antibiotic jab from the vet.
Amber was checked over by the same vet and I asked him to check her eyes as her pupils are enlarged and not reactive. He said it was probably stress and her retina was fine. Well, got a second opinion today from another vet. She's a number of abnormalities with her retina and her sight is very limited.
We're taking her to see the vet in the practice who's an ophthalmologist tomorrow but it's a forlorn hope really. To be clear, she's not going back to the rescue - we adopted her and that is that. I know cats can live a happy life even blind.. well my head knows. I just feel so sorry for the lovely little thing.

Trying to keep in mind that cats don't think like we do. They've incredible hearing and a fantastic sense of smell so sight isn't the be all and end all. If there is nothing we can do, then we'll just give her a happy home. Luckily there's no nearby road to worry about. She's investigating the cat flap (which is locked) already.

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Caralou on November 24, 2011, 22:33
When I picked up Arwen (and later Shia) from a local cat sanctuary there was a black boy who was totally blind. Not only was he able to be an outdoors cat (although he only came out when his owners did as he followed them everywhere!) he was also a great little hunter. I watched him bring down a butterfly while there and he had been know to get both mice and birds in the past too. Cats adapt amazingly so little Amber will do just fine, and be somewhat spoilt I suspect  ;)

I have also realised I forgot to add any photos of the new one here. No, of course I don't have 9 cats now.....  ;) ::) My little Ginger Ninja  :)

Well done for saving these poor lil kitties, I have four cats rescued one way or another! My vet told me they put down healthy kittens and puppy's everyday as people are too irresponsible to spay and nuter their pets and rescue homes are soo full to bursting! When do people realise that every animal they breed takes the home and eventually the life of an animal in rescue shelters. I can understand the more responsible breeders that do it for particular attributes and insure homes for all animals before birth but he back yard "make a quick buck" breeders are the scum of the earth!

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: joyfull on December 14, 2011, 22:42
we have decided to keep this name although he doesn't respond to it yet. He was a stray (although don't know why as he is under a year old and so well behaved) so his original name  isn't known and he has had this name for a couple of weeks so we don't want to confuse him any more  :)
Title: Re: Pets Gallery

You could try calling out all the popular dog names to see if he responds to any.  You might be able to work out his original name that way.   :D

I really can't understand why this boy was a stray, he is so gentle (although very amorous towards his new big sisters), he is obiedient and house trained. But sadly he had no collar, tag or microchip and nobody had reported him missing  :(
We had no problems overnight so fingers crossed Eddie will settle in quite quickly, but we do have to build him up as he really is so skinny (must have been on the streets for a while).
He hasn't seen our feral puddle cat yet John so not sure how they will get on (the other two aren't very keen on the cat).

Since the cat is used to dogs, I expect it will just be a matter of letting the new dog know that the cat is part of the family and not to attack. You never know, they might end up best pals.

Today he helped me let the chickens out and was curious but didn't chase them. He is now answering to his new name and comes back when called - so really chuffed with him  :D

This is Mookie (2 and a half years) and Truffle who is 18 months - both black mini schnauzers.

As you might know, we adopted a cat who turned out to be blind. Amber copes so well it took us 2 days to realise something was up and the first vet we went to didn't pick it up either!
Anyway, after she started going outside she vanished and went out of range of her radio collar (which we bought when we realised she was blind)
We were frantic and really upset. Searched everywhere, did leaflets etc all to no avail. Then after 6 days she just strolled in through the cat flap, let out a big miaow and settled down by the fire.
We were overjoyed and I think she was pleased to be home too :)

I used to think that keeping a blind cat alive was verging on the cruel, pandering to the owner rather than in the animal's best interest. Now I know I was wrong - Amber's quality of life is as good as any cat. Her super keen hearing and sense of smell give her a surprisingly good map of the world and her position in it. As I write she's running around the house playing chase with Luther kitten.

Here's Luther with Dexter - we could almost have a caption competition with this..
Luther "Will I be big and strong like you Dad?"
Dexter "Only if you stop wasting time chatting and concentrate on eating!"

This is our Ginger, real name Simba.
14 months ago he appeared at my kitchen window. It took 3 months but i eventually found his owner 4 miles away.  They came to pick him up and he was so pleased to see them.  He jumped into their car without a backwards glance or thank you and was gone.  :(
Next day he was back. I phoned his mum and she came for him but he was back next day .
I have taken him home or his family came the 8mile round trip for him at least twice a week for nearly a year.
I have now agreed with his family that we will keep him with us and hes going to be chipped  to our address. Hes always been Ginger to us and will stay as that. :)
He's a lovely big boy and has settled in with us  and our other cats easily. :happy:

He came from a big old farmhouse in a very small hamlet of just 3 house and a couple of farm buildings surrounded by farmland, you would think a perfect home  :unsure:

I dont know if i have an over active imagination but i hated going down there.  I get a terrible feeling of foreboding as i drive down the lane and approach the hamlet and  the hairs on the back of my neck stand up :blink:
Talking to people locally who know more of the history around here than me, there have been suicides there and probably, a long time ago, witches drowned in the pond .
Perhaps Ginger can feel that and like me doesn't like it much.

At least his previous family know he's happy and being looked after. The not knowing is awful when a pet vanishes.
Our first cat, Kali, moved next door to live with their middle aged cat after we got two kittens to keep her company when her companion cat died.
As for your theory .. the rational me thinks it daft and another part of me thinks cats (and dogs) can be very psychic. :)

I'm sure animals must have very perceptive powers Spana; apparently they can sense an earthquake or tsunami and flee the scene long before it occurs. Your Ginger evidently feels something untoward about his picturesque hamlet.

A friend has a cat which was born without eyes John, and I too thought it was cruel to keep it alive. However, like your's she dashes around the house playing with the other cats and has a wonderful life.

John you have hit the nail on the head there - it is not the dogs but the owners who are bad, the trouble is you cant always tell by looking at the owners whether they are good or bad owners. They can be a hoodie wearing thuggish looking person with the softest Staffordshire bull terrier dog or an elderly lady with a little Yorkshire terrier who after having taken a chunk out of your leg/hand/face etc claims Tiddles has never bitten before  :(. And yes Cara is right the slobber is the most dangerous thing with our Ollie or the risk of being barged out of the way who at over 10 stones is like a miniature tank  :lol: Charlie our elderly Newfoundland cross doesn't have the slobber problem but again being a huge dog with now failing eyesight (or just pure awkwardness) also has a habit of barging everything and everyone out of the way when she feels like it (why go round when you can go through seems to be her new motto  :lol:).

You could use an automatic feeder if she is on dried food, they dispense a set amount up to 3 times a day.  I have one I got for our cat for holidays so whoever is pet sitting only needs to check once a day.  They are really good for setting a routine and your pet doesn't have to wait to be fed if you get delayed.  It also stops her getting fed twice when she dupes you into thinking she hasn't been fed!   :lol:

We often found our cat with her paw up the chute carefully extracting the food.  It did mean that her next feed was less though so she still didn't get fat!   ;)

They could be quite useful ANHBUC but I was thinking more in terms of starting the puppies off at 3 weeks. Lots of babyfood for them to stick their feet in several times a day  ::)

that is why we have decided to downsize (dog wise). When Eddie got run over Jim could just about pick him up but both Ollie and Charlie are very, very big girls and we would both struggle to pick them up so now I decided we will have to go with Staffy sized dogs.

If we had a dog, I'd like a biggish one. Rottys can be very sweet. However, my pal the animal behaviourist doesn't rate me as a dog person. He says the idea is you train the dog but having seen me with the cats..

And here's a nice shot of Amber (our blind cat) enjoying a stroll in the sun. You can tell by her tail how she loves going out.

A picture of our cat Amber running across the field at the back - not very remarkable, a cat running along but she's totally blind.

She does get into scrapes, like stuck on a gatepost and not sure how to get back down, but it's amazing how much she can do and how happy she is. But as the vet told me, she doesn't know she's disabled so it doesn't upset her.

Ollie used to chase the chickens when she was that age too and we managed to get her out of it but when we had our collie cross Sammy we couldn't stop her - she would kill anything, but we didn't get her as a pup and she came with a few other problems too. I do think we will win with Rosie though  :)

Sorry no pics, but I was wondering what others have for pets and this seemed to be the right thread to let you know what we've got. In no particular order - 3 Bearded Collie Dogs, 2 Cats (well, 4 really but the kittens have all got homes to go to), 6 Chickens, 4 Runner Ducks, 3 Horses and a Rosella bird.

I love collies, I've had 2.  The first, a boy, was found by my Dad in the snow one November night and brought home inside his briefcase.  We found the owner the next day, he was one of six pups, so Dad bought him, he was chocolate, liver and white in colour and as soft as they come.  The next, a girl, was a very long haired black and white, equally as soft and very protective over the children.  We decided our lifestyle wasn't suited to having a dog now but just recently we've been talking about maybe letting Eils have one and yes it would be a collie :D  Watch this space  ;)

He is a trained (still in training and will be for a long while) gun dog so will retrieve items shot mostly such as phesants and rabbits, he will also flush phesants and other animals out of bushes etc. He needs lots of mental stimulation as well as physical excersise. He may be an intelligent animal but it only extends to training as his favourite pass time other than the devotion he shows to a tennis ball is chasing shadows.........  ::)

Bessie is in great form thanks Springlands  :D

She has totally recovered from the op and is enjoying herself enormously, especially when we walk over to her old haunts. Ben and Tiger the cat like to come too. She is very protective of Tiger and intervenes immediately if Ben is too boisterous towards him.

She is also starting to guard the house and issue warnings if there are strangers about. She is an adorable girl and I love her more and more.  :D

He went blind through progressive retinal atrophy. He was a gundog, so his owner rehomed  him as he wanted to train up another dog. he was going to shoot him, but our vet's nurse persuaded him to wait and see if she could find him a home. She asked us if we wanted him, after our greyhound had to be put to sleep. He still loves to retrieve and do as much as he can, he's the happiest dog we have ever had.

Our blind cat copes amazingly well and by her body language (tail sticking up) she's as happy as any of the sighted cats.
I'm sure you're like us - a little bit more indulgent with Jack than you should be. Amber would have been in that cream by the way :)

I have missed out lately ...... all these lovely pets.

I get so many negative / horror stories from animal rescues that it is a real joy to see so many much loved pets leading a fabulous life.

All our 7 cats are rescues - and we only actually wanted 2 or 3 but there you go. Now to add to the fun, we've 2 or 3 ferals moved into our outbuilding. So we feed them as well. I really can't understand people spending money on pedigree dogs and cats when there are so many loving pets desperate for a home in the rescue centres.

I think lots of people on this site have rescues John ..... it's absolutely wonderful. Your ferals will soon be moving in too  :D

However, from past experience, it's not always easy to obtain a rescue. They all seem to require a totally secure garden which, for a fit active dog, means 6' fencing! It's a pity they don't credit you with enough common sense to keep them on a lead until settled.

Tex since his castration has slowed down and put a lot of weight on...hopefully he'll keep up in the next shooting season, i need him to show Ruby the ropes  :D

Good to see they have a proper job to do, I think its good for any dog to have a "job" to do, a purpose and something to concentrate on, but especially for such high energy dogs like Springers.  Hopefully he'll get right into his work when the season comes round and the weight will fall off. :D

I'm sure you're like us - a little bit more indulgent with Jack than you should be. Amber would have been in that cream by the way :)

Yes he does get a bit more leeway ::)  begging at the table is a no -no in this house, but he sits so nicely, we just can't stop him :lol:

Glad your cat has settled in too.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone :D

Love those puppy pics! :D

Yep i agree - every dog should have a 'job'. I know many may not agree with hunting but the dogs are there doing the job they were bred for. Plus it keeps me in shape, gets me out of the house and puts 'alternative' food on the table (pheasant/rabbit/partridge etc).

I'll see if i have more pics, can't wait to get my terrier puppy!! Pictures will definately be up then  :lol:

I agree with this. Going through the motions of getting a rescue pet is sometimes so difficult a process it just isn't worth it. Home check, person check, checking you are financially stable, then saying if you have a full time job you are not eligible to apply...now i don't know about anyone else but i wouldn't be able to pay for food, insurance or vets bills without working full time....vicious circle. When i was around 10 years old we tried a rescue centre near here for our first dog. 'Any dog aslong as it's good with kids' was my parents intention, we ended up being turned away for a Yorkie due to having a 5' fence  :blink: not knowing much about breeds, my parents went and bought an Alsatian puppy for the same price the rescue wanted as a donation.....i've volunteered for an animal rescue (not mainly dog rehoming) so i've been there done that, i just wouldn't look to a rescue if i wanted an animal, too much baggage.

Anyway, back on topic  :D

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: joyfull on June 12, 2012, 09:40
any very active breed dog does need a purpose - whether that is being a sheep dog, hunter/retriever or taking part in agility classes. My 2 older dogs are here as guard dogs as we are quite remote, but being giant breeds they require little exercise, however Rosie pup is another matter - highly active so we are going to go down the route of different tricks to keep her mind stimulated otherwise we are sure to come home one day to total destruction  ::)

Have you thought of taking her to agility/obedience classes Joy?  I had a collie x terrier who needed lots of stimulation, she ate her way through the front door via the letter box once and through a partition wall, so I took her to classes and she loved it and her behaviour changed almost immediately :)

You lucky person! :D My avatar is of our rescue mixed Terrier, no-one is positive what he was but we think from size and temperament Airedale x Parson Jack. Unfortunately he couldn't beat with me on the shoot OH used to help run as he was frightened of the sound of gunshot, but he was a great ratter on the farm.

I love the Parson Jacks, Lakelands, Patterdales..haven't decided... its not for just yet anyway :D We have a lively Border Collie at the moment who gets miles of walks every day and all the freedom of our house and garden she wants for most of the day otherwise.

My lab-something-cross was basically a rescue. Can't believe I got yet another lab that's afraid of water! But she's shown me what job she's good for - house alarm and keeping many of the squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits out of my veg garden when she's outside. She's also excellent at finding all sticks and twigs in the yard - primarily so I can throw them for her :D

Better the cat than kids stealing dog food. When my boys were both in their 1-2 year span, they adored eating dry dog food. They'd race the poor dog for the dish when we set it down, no matter where we placed it. Or they'd chase the kibble the dog dropped and eat that  :tongue2: Thankfully they grew out of that  :D

A brilliant piccie Pamela.

I had a 'wish I had a camera with me' moment when I was out on my walk this afternoon. There was a small dog lazing on the patio of a house not far from where I live and its companion dog was sitting on top of it giving it a good wash - looked so funny.  :)

As soon as Mili hears the bedroom door open she is in like a flash to see if she can get into the dog food bag  :lol: We used to keep the bag of food in the hallway but had to move it as Mili was always in the bag.  One day she was making dreadful noises, scared me, she had a biscuit stuck in the roof of her mouth, silly cat.  Even the dogs dont go down the bag, just Mili.

Sadly some are. My pal works for the RSPCA told me there are 'trainers' who turn the breed into vicious dangerous dogs. He has the horrid job of deciding if they can be rehabilitated or ... Apparently they're trained to attack on keywords.

I'm a bit nervy about dogs (been attacked a couple of times) and a friend had a staffie who was the most gentle and loving dog you could meet. She even shielded me from their other dog who was a bit of a bounce around.

Being a great supporter of the rescue centre where two of my dogs came from I am a great supporter of Staffies having seen a great deal. Sadly many aren't nasty but are stolen and then used as bait dogs and then dumped when they are no good or if they don't fight back - Rosie is a Staffie x English Bull Terrier and I have to be careful never to leave her tied up outside shops etc. because of this fact.
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Oliveview on August 09, 2012, 18:31
Do you have to muzzle her when out Joyfull?  Not saying she is nasty, just wondered what the law is.  Some of the pitbull/staffie types here have to be muzzled in public and you have to have insurance.  Also, it isnt just pit bull types here,  I have been told that all big dogs over a certain weight have to be muzzled in public-  hope Jumbo keeps his weight down!!

PS We have had a Pit Bull dumped over the fence at the refuge, his ears have been cut off, poor thing.  He is so gentle, he is lovely.

No none of my dogs have to be muzzled and Ollie (the Neapolitan Mastiff) is over 10 stones with a 42" chest - a very big girlie  :D.
The dog with it's ears cut off would have either been used for bait or fighting but was probably dumped as it was no good at it. This happens a lot here  :(.

I was voting every day for the 3 amigos (they won with the most votes in the mind games and had the most votes overall). David their owner runs the happy Staffy Group on Facebook, and his 3 staffies are fantastic - they are so well trained that he and his wife can do anything with them). His prize is being split between several dog rescue sites including Babbington I think - which is where 2 of mine come from).

That never ceases to annoy me how some dogs with bad temperments are not forced to be muzzled, yet certain big breeds are required to be muzzled despite the gentlest of tempers. Worse is the reason given - because we don't know if it will attack.

Well, almost any dog in temper will attack. It really is unfair when large dogs are required to be muzzled when the worst damage you'd get would be slobber stains.

friend of mines staffie mauled a jack russell once - the staffie was always muzzled and on a lead, but in this case he was in my friends tent having his food, the jack russel was riddled with cancer and attacked everything and everyone, it wasnt on a lead and went in the tent and attacked my friend, his staffie jumped in and attacked the intruder attacking his master mauling it quite badly - to my mind that wasnt either my friends or the staffies fault, the jack russell should have been on a lead and shouldnt have been in my friends tent or attacked him. irresponsible ownership of the jack russel in my view.

friend of mines staffie mauled a jack russell once - the staffie was always muzzled and on a lead, but in this case he was in my friends tent having his food, the jack russel was riddled with cancer and attacked everything and everyone, it wasnt on a lead and went in the tent and attacked my friend, his staffie jumped in and attacked the intruder attacking his master mauling it quite badly - to my mind that wasnt either my friends or the staffies fault, the jack russell should have been on a lead and shouldnt have been in my friends tent or attacked him. irresponsible ownership of the jack russel in my view.

Here is a picture of Ash and Jenkins- playing!

Ash is a Staffi x greyhound- who most people think is pure greyhound, and is the blue boy

Jenkins is Staffi x greyhound x battering ram- and is a rescue

They are both great lads, and love to play!

Slowly slowly this chap is moving in with us. He's a stray and not a youngster either. His condition is improving with feeding but I'll get him to the vet for a checkover and to see if he's chipped when he's more settled. Notified the local rescue place but must admit I'd rather keep him. We call him Twotone (cos'  he's black and white)

 Now when they saw Charlie the lab for the first time all hell let loose, the cats having a real hissing fit and Charlie screaming with fright- all 28kg of him to Milis 4kg, it was so funny to watch.  They now all seem to get on, and Charlie has stopped screaming like a baby if they just look at him in an odd way  :lol:  He really did scream honest, Mili was about 3 feet away  from Charlie  :lol: :lol: :lol:

When Amber came to us from the rescue, we didn't realise she was blind. Since finding out we read how they should be kept indoors, not to move furniture and generally molly coddled and defended from other cats.

Well she vanished for six days, runs around the fields, catches mice and rats, hardly ever bumps into furniture even if it's moved. As for the other cats, she's now joint boss cat and bullies some of the others. Likes nothing better than playing chase and wrestle!

And, as you can see, butter wouldn't melt in her mouth but she's pretty good at melting hearts.

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Oliveview on November 29, 2012, 10:59
It is wonderful how the animals adapt to their problems isnt it? 
Our Miki has a strange eye, the pupil is always large, the vet checked it, he said he could see no problem there.  The other day Miki was on the wall when we arrived home and the car headlights really showed up Mikis wonky eye.  When it is sunny Miki keeps his wonky eye shut.  Amber is beautiful John.

It was her eyes not reacting to light that alerted me something was up - the first vet we saw said there was nothing wrong... the second picked it up immediately.

Before we had her I would have said keeping a blind cat alive was indulgent and cruel. I know a lot better now. Her quality of life is very good, in fact she's one of the happiest cats we've had.

This is Basil when he was in his blonde phase!  Cute or what?  The minnie schnauser is Winnie, who is a rescue dog - I discovered that she was almost totally blind when I got her home.  As mentioned by John in a previous post (regarding his cat) she copes incredibly well, and it doesn't impede her enjoyment of life at all.  We go to beaches, forests, hills, dales - any tricky area I get her to walk to heel, and can guide her by voice commands.  When she's on familiar walks, you just wouldn't know she was blind.  The lurcher is the gorgeous Lulu, who is the most wonderful hound I've ever come across! The cats somehow get by with all these dogs!

Our blind cat, Amber, has decided the waste paper bin by the fire is a great place to sleep but Nibbles demonstrated she could go one better if we hadn't bothered to put the bread away.
Then there's the rough tough Twotone who comes to visit, feed up and catch up on sleep before heading off through the snow to somewhere else. He must know he's welcome to stay but he's a travelling man.

My sister has a Yorkie and it's the biggest pain imaginable, always barking at any old thing, and pees anywhere it feels like. I've refused to babysit the little monster and my sister is quite upeset with me. I'm not, because my sis won't clean up the dog's messes before they leave.  >:(

Few bad dogs, but many bad owners in the world. Yorkies and other small breeds are very cute but they're still dogs and dogs like to know their limits, where they stand. Proper training should have them as clean as any other dog - unless there's a problem like an infection.

He hasn't decided what colour he's going to be yet, some days he looks chocolate other days grey  :wacko: I think it's because his coat is still growing in.  I'll keep an eye on his sunbathing so I don't cause a problem  ;)

Me again.  Have you ever read the 'Rainbow Bridge' poem?  I'm sure you have, everyone who has lost a beloved animal friend, Lulu, ANHBUC, Trilium, myself, everyone.  But may be of some comfort to read it again?

It's a lovely poem - but I take comfort from knowing we've done our best to give them a good life and been there for them at the end where we can. Our young black cat vanished some weeks ago and I'm afraid he's missing in action.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Thank you  :D. We hope they will click and be good life buddies  ;)

It's been a very sad, hard year losing our two beautiful old dogs, and Blue too has really missed his very good friends.  Hopefully he and Ella will be good pals.  Though, I'm not sure who will lead who astray first  :D

I know it's been very difficult for you, but it certainly looks as though Ella and Blue will be great pals. :) As for the last part though, need I say? ::) :D

:lol:  er, no  :lol:  Blue is perfect in every way except one ...... a retriever who won't retrieve and loves his toys and dismantles any toy in a matter of minutes.  In time, Ella might just lead him further into the dark side  :lol:

I don't notice it normally as Im with him all the time - but looking at picture 2 you can really see the difference compared to the the meek, moth eaten thing sitting in my chair back in Feb.   8) I've just put a measure against him and he's up to 21" at the shoulder  :ohmy: - it would be nice if he stopped growing upwards and put some meat on, he still looks like a toast rack when standing.

 :D It was bath day yesterday (medicated not cosmetic) so that's his straight from the salon look.  It's only a matter of time until he finds something dead to roll in again :nowink: In general I think he's responded really well to the good food and oil supplements.

Your guess is as good as mine - each of the 4 vets I've seen has said something different (Mind you I'd be surprised if vets 1-3 could spell dog !)  I've heard most things - greyhound, whippet , weimarane , pitbull he does move very quickly when he wants to and has the same sort of gate as a greyhound when at speed.

Who me? No, I didn't dig this hole under the hedge...

She does have a very mischievous looking face, I think it's the eyes that do it. Given the heat you can forgive her a hole or 2, safely away from the veg patch - obviously  :)

She has dug a hole in around the same spot in the past, a couple of years ago, and yes it is well away from the veg patch. That's fenced in, originally to keep the chickens out now it's to keep her out, although when she "needs" to get in there she knows how to clamber in round the back of the poytunnel! ::)

I just had Rosies DNA tested (you can buy a kit online from Pets at Home for under 40) and whilst we knew she was staffie x EBT it turns our she is Staffie on her dads side but her mum was EBT x Jack Russel. So you may want to get one of these kits for your boy Lardman - but I would also suggest smooth coat weimaraner.
It takes about 3 weeks to get your results through online.and it goes back to the grandparents on both sides  :)

I do like her thinking ..... if the mud holes work for the elephants in Africa, then I'm sure it felt really good today - in a dog sort of way of course  :D. Very clever dog  :D. It certainly wasn't a day to be too long out from the shade.

She's a little beauty, shoozie. :D

I'm not surprised about the footballs.. I know, from Terrier experience, how sharp those little teeth will be and how remarkably strong their little jaws are, but perhaps not quite so yet. Getting her used to water is a good idea, but you might end up having to put her into a river, loch edge or even the sea and you might find her taking straight to swimming then. :) We had to take a "thrown in at the deep end" approach with our boy, but he instantly took to it and was then a strong and enthusiastic swimmer. The Collie howled the first time she saw the sea, as a pup, now loves to lie in it at the edge, or any big enough pice of water, to cool down. :D

 Has you can see his a border collie, with had him since Sunday. Bless him he's not had good start in life,  when we picked him up we was told that he was 15 weeks  old,  that he had been wormed and flea clear
When we got him home my daughter. Found a couple of fleas on him, so we put the flea comb through him and he was full of them, so we put him in the bath and washed him with special shampoo for fleas, we then we noticed he had worms in his stools.
Next day he went to the vets and they told us that he was under weight and that his only two months old and asked us where we got him from and the address.

Now he's flea clear, wormed , and his fur is glossy, he will be checked by the vet regularly to check his weight.
He's learning quickly and can already sit on command and his almost house trained.

Sorry, my memory is getting worse.  Hope the hydro continues to make a difference for Ollie.  Is Rosie's tumour stable at the moment then so she won't need any treatment?
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: joyfull on September 18, 2013, 21:27
yes she is fine thanks but if it continues to grow she can either have half her lower jaw removed or have it filed down.
The hydro has worked brilliantly for Ollie and she is now only on Chondroitin and Glucosamine tablets rather than anti inflammatories and pain killers. Hopefully we can keep her like this for a few more years.

It is so hard to part with them Joyfull, but they leave many memories.  As I type this I have a Mastiff head on my lap, moaning that it is walk time.   You always know the ones owned by a mastiff by the silver sleeves and knees, even on the collar of your coat at times lol.  Not a dog for the sqeamish eh ?

well we didn't get the Great Dane from the Large Breed Dog Rescue as our Rosie didn't like him (he was a good 8 inches taller than our Ollie was and was still growing so I think his size frightened her).
Then on Friday I got told about a brother and sister that needed a new home together and would I be interested. It was a silly question to ask me as they are my favourite breed of dog and still part of the mastiff family. The lady who owned them had had major work on her heart and had never been able to walk them after a couple of weeks of getting them so they are not lead trained and after spending their short lives living in a caravan and having just a pen for their play they were terrified of the outside world. But she knew she had to part with them for their sakes even though it broke her heart when I went to collect them on Saturday afternoon.

So please meet Harry (closest to the camera) and Phoebe (with Rosie in the background) my pair of Newfoundland Landseers  :D

Got to say it - I think you're brave taking on rescue dogs as big and powerful as these breeds are. But I'm always a little wary of dogs until we get to know each other.

Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: joyfull on December 02, 2013, 18:54
John, the Newfoundland is recognised as the gentlest of all the mastiffs and these two are really soft.  However because of their previous life they need a lot of training especially house training  :(
Title: Re: Pets Gallery
Post by: Trillium on December 02, 2013, 21:38
One of the biggest dogs I know of is the Newfoundland retriever, a huge furry slobbery dog that is gentler than a baby. They're huge only because they store a lot of fat and fur to protect them when they swim icy waters as rescue dogs. Mind, I'm not sure I'd want the never ending job of combing them out  :D

I actually got as far as him sniffing my hand last night but you still have to be careful not to look at him directly or he gets nervous. I know he'll never be as tame as the cats we've had from a little kitten but hopefully we'll be stroking him in a year or so.

Rufus the Feral, who has now decided my bed is better than the cowshed, has been talking to our other cats. Initially he was happy if we put dry biscuits and water in the shed. Now he's looking pathetic and half starved, which is some feat for a cat clearly over weight, by the food bowls that have those rubbish sachets of whiskas in when they should have felix as good as it looks.

Amber is holding out for extra strong garlic sausage and I swear she likes white pepper.. maybe I should try whiskas with pepper on?

Got a new 2 mo. old pup, Great Pyrenees/Anatolian/Maremma cross breeding, to help my old dog, Jake, in watching the flock.  He's coming along fine on training, a serious, sweet and calm pup that learns like lightning and is eager to please.  I thank God for his sweet nature, as I really wanted a dog that is easy to train and shows good intelligence.  He fits the bill, for sure.  A pure pleasure to have around and is already doing well on chickens after only a week of being here.

Lillie really was a lovely dog, our daughter's step-granddaughter used to include Lillie in her tea parties.  I think that she would have preferred that they were real buns and sandwiches though.

Sheba, also a rescue, was very spinsterish but children could climb all over her.

We always rescue dogs from the breed society never from the pound.

Staffies are generally the softest dogs you could hope to meet, the kennel club only states 2 breeds are suitable for children and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is one of those breeds.
Obviously all dogs are capable of attacking both other dogs and people but in the records of attacks Staffies are way down the list.

Thanks, Yorkie. She does 'flyball' all by herself.

Micou - your Loki is gorgeous!

Because I need precisely zero excuses to post photos of my dog  :D

This is Loki : a butter-wouldn't-melt 4mo, a fairly purposeful-looking rabbiter just after his first birthday, and in his favourite elegant and refined sleeping pose...

Beautiful dog!!  Never heard of that kind of dog but sure am glad I got to see one....very pretty.

Hehe - Loki is a lurcher, Beekissed. Not sure you've got an equivalent on your side of the pond but it's a type of cross, between a sighthound type and a working type, normally a terrier or a herding breed. Most regions of the UK have their lurchers, adapted to their terrain : it's a dog expected to hunt and generally make itself useful. Loki is predominantly whippet x border collie, with a bit of greyhound and a bit of bull terrier in there somewhere.

Over here those are called curs, which is another name for a hunting type mutt that someone is breeding intentionally for the combination of the individual traits of the original genetics, they are highly regarded for their individual skill set in hunting, breed true when the type is developed by breeders and are invaluable on any farm or homestead. 

Most of them look a little like your lurcher, I've found, except they tend to have more leaning towards the scent hound than the sight hound, so the ears are floppier and body a little heavier build.  I've not seen one as pretty as yours, though....I love the alert ears and lithe build on your dog.

Here is our new Family member: Celt, he is a Labrador cross sheepdog. So far so good, he's been with us just over a month. I'm hoping to be able to train him to do a bit of "one for the pot" type of shooting with me, although a bit young to start yet.
Cheers
Aled

Our rodent control operatives have decided to take the day off due to snow. The best place to snooze the day away has to be the radiator shelves.
Black & White mog is Niblet, she's a sweetie but likes to be a wild hunter when it's decent weather. Came home one day with a badly damaged eye which the vet couldn't save so spent 6 weeks in a dog crate in the bathroom as keeping one cat in with our mob is impossible. Spent a lot of time playing with her in there though.
The ginger cat is Willow. She was a really affectionate kitten but nowadays is very stand-offish except when she wants something. Her special skill is detecting flea spot on tubes at 300 yards and vanishing.
The sandy cat is Amber. She's totally blind but doesn't let that stop her from roaming and catching mice. She's so capable that it took us 3 days to realise something was up with her sight and visitors look very sceptical when we tell them she can't see.
Finally Lotty, part Bengal she's a bruiser. All the other cats are deferential to her except Amber who loves play fighting with her. Her favourite game is to go out of the cat flap and then demand to be let in through the office window by scratching at it. And repeat.. endlessly :)

My cockerpoo was delighted to be back in her own garden again after a winter in Spain. Picture taken after she 'helped' my husband mow the grass.

Here we have Arthur, at the back, and his brother Merlin. Two from a litter of 5 that were born in our garden they are so loving and gentle it is hard to believe they were wildies. Their three other siblings live with our neighbours across the road.

This is Murray.

His main job is to keep squirrels tree rats out of the garden and away from the bird feeders.  This is successful 56% of the time.  He chases them, never catches them, which is probably related to the barking.

His other jobs include retrieving tennis balls, but only if the game is played indoors.  He also makes sure we get a walk each day, knocks over dry-stacked brick walls, and occasionally makes sure the deck chairs don't float away (chiefly by sitting on them).  And sleeping.

This is the latest addition to our family; Reggie is a 6 year old Akita rescue we took in on Monday. He's already settled in beautifully and is charming all the neighbours on his walks  :)

There was something on a news story I heard the other day that said they are considering making it illegal for dogs to travel with their heads out of windows.  I can't now remember the reason why but might be something for you to look into before you get 'caught'.  :)

It's already illegal if the dog isn't secured properly.  Then again, it's illegal to use a phone while driving and that doesn't appear to stop most people.
