Sorry, my server kinda frowns on direct linking of images so I can only post a link to a page that shows it ( if that's not ok, feel free to remove the link ) ....


... so, on with my entry .....

it's not "exactly" a pet bee, but I can pretend it was if that allows me to enter? .... and it did stay still for ages ... and I may have accidently watered it at some point .... *angelic look*

Title : Beeutiful

Post by: SalJ1980 on July 07, 2008, 19:42
The simple rules have confused me :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  or at least number 2 has:

"It can be your pet or someone elses, on an allotment or a home garden - just so long as it's a pet (even Babe who has a pet carrot). "

Does this mean they NEED to be outside, or just that they can be?

If they need to be, dare I point out that Rob's kitty (although very cute!) is indoors - unless he's hoping we'll be confused by the floral upholstery?! Or is it an outdoor sofa?!?! Not that I'm trying to get the opposition qualified at all (I don't need to - my kitty will win by miles!   :D )

He he he, gonna have to disappoint you there Rob!  :cry:

I'm having a hard enough time just choosing a photo of my kitty - do I go for cute and adorable (which he does very well) or pure comedy (which he's also good at!)  :?:

Can I run a sub-poll of "Which pic should I enter in the photo competition?" ?!?!?!  :lol:

I'm all for just posting as many pics as possible but I think Aunt Sally might get a bit miffed !

I'm loving all the entries so far. I suppose you could post one of each and remove one after a concensus. Or is that cheating ?

Rob  :)
Title: Photo Competition #4 - My Pet(s) or somebody else's
Post by: Aunty on July 08, 2008, 10:10
It's a competition Rob, not a photo gallery ! The rules say only one entry per member so I'll be really mean and disqualify anyone with more than one.

We can have a pet photo gallery if you want.  You can start one in 'Chatting on the Plot' and we'll make it a sticky !

Quote from: "poultrygiest"

Nooooo, that would be cheating in my book Rob.  It would be like answering an exam question a few times and deciding which one to submit when you'd asked everyone in the exam room which they thought was the correct answer  :roll:

PLEASE only one entry per person here.  It took me a couple of hours to sort out the last competition for voting as a certain person (I won't say who Alex) posted loads of pictures :(

Have mercy on poor old Aunty  :cry:

Oh Peapod, you've got a Boxer, well you have my vote.  Lost the last of our four last year.  Can't do any more as both of us work full time and it wouldn't be fair.  Have bred them for about twelve years.


Aw thanks! Everyone keeps telling me boxers are an aquired taste - most of my friends love labs and westies - though dont get me wrong I think they are gorgeous too, boxers are IMO the very best family dog you could ever get.  Im so sorry you lost yours, I cant believe how upsetting it really is.  We lost our 10yo boy Floyd to a brain tumour in Oct 2006, and I vowed I wouldnt get another dog - its too hard to lose them.
Then despite my vow, low and behold, Sonny turns up in June 2007!(ok we went to look JUST LOOK! at the breeders!!)  He was my redundancy money reward to myself and he is my baby boy - a lunatic! but a wonderful little man :-)
We are looking at breeding them too in three of four years when I can (hopefully) get my career off to a flying start and give the OH more time at home with them - well thats the plan!
Its lovely to meet another boxer fan  :D

KITT, the cat. Yes, i named a cat after a car. Isn't she cute? Here she is about to pounce on my foot probably.
Broke my heart a couple of weeks after this photo was taken, died suddenly overnight and the vet told me it was heart failure. My pew pew mew friend is now no more.

RIP KITT, my little Knightrider. Sept 2007 - Nov 2007

freecyclegardener - that's such a shame. We've had cats with us for 30 years nearly and so, of course, have seen them pass away. They all hurt when they leave but at least they've had a good life whilst they were with us.

wighty - so good to hear you take your pet welfare so seriously. If only everyone did. Boxers are lovely dogs, aren't they?

Spike The Mole Hunter

(http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/4607/spikex640wideqg8.jpg)

This is one of my 2 Jack Russels, Spike. He and his chum Boogie try and turn  my garden into a bomb site by digging for moles. This involves them excavating the entire molehill and tunnels as far as they can with much gusto. They don't seem to realise that anything in there has long gone by the time they have spent 30 minutes chucking soil everywhere.

After they have finished they sit in the conservatory waiting for the mud to dry, before racing into the house and leaving it on the carpet! :roll:

Spike only has one eye now. He had the other one removed last year. It was ruptured when he and Boogie (JRT) had a fight because we put the new ducklings out in their pen and the dogs got too excited and fought.

When we had to put up a temporary duck pen a couple of full grown ducks kept getting out. The dogs regularly chased them, pinned them down and pulled out mouthfuls of feathers - no casualties thankfully.

It's on ITV at 8 pm on Fridays, might only be on Meridian at the moment though as this is only the second series.  Ian (the vet) is mainly dogs and horses, don't know about his chicken skills.  Monkey Business started out just on Meridian.

Thank you for all of your votes.

Sal - user names are such difficult things to come up with, but a few years ago I used to walk down a Swing Swang Lane on the way to work. The street sign always used to make me smile, so I filed it to memory and thought that it would come in handy for something.

I've tried to find out what it actually means, but have drawn a blank, so if anyone is any the wiser...

Regards,

Swing Swang
