Ace of Spades Pet Thread

z  cover.jpeg


Well, you can either clean up the yard, litter box or sit down and enjoy the pet thread. Really, the poop can wait.

Interesting pet and animal news


So we have been at this Pet Thread for a couple of months now. We have been overwhelmed with photos from you Morons. A couple of things have stood out. There have been an incredible array of breeds and names for your pets. So, we are curious as to why you chose your breed of pet and why did you name it that particular name? Did you go to a web site for naming tips? Did you select your breed by doing research as well? Did you have pets growing up? Or did you jump into pet "ownership" as an adult?


Meet the Moron Pets


Vicious Pomeranian owned by jrg. This dog was brought up on The Ohio State University Buckeyes football team. Saying Michigan is a no-no.


z antisocialist Cheyene.jpg

Meet Cheyenne, a Chocolate Lab with recessive pigment. Antisocialist calls her a Milk Chocolate Lab.

Z red1cr cat.jpg

So this is red1c4's Smokie. Smokie was a resuce cat. Hope red1c4 is around to tell the story of picking this cat up from the rescue shelter.


z sob van owen.jpg

Moron, SOB Van Owen, submitted this snap shot of his 2 hard working dogs Pirate & Layla. Surprised one of the dogs isn't named Carmelita.


z shoutingboy Max and Bella.jpg

We have a lurker by the name of shoutingboy. His pals are Max & Bella. Once again another pair of mistreated animals makes the Pet Thread.

<z country singer horse.jpg

Country Singer shared a photo of his 2 year old filly Flury. He said he would split any horse race purses with the Horde.


z woodstock cat.jpg

Per commentator CozMark he was adopted by this cat Woodstock. He had been a dog guy and this cat moved onto his property until taken in.

z cat mr rando.jpg

Christopher submitted this photo of himself and his late cat Mr. Rando. Looks like you lost a good buddy there.


z biancaneve.jpg

Interesting story about this pair of K-9s. They were found abandoned in a National Forest. Biancaneve named them Edgar & Agatha in honor of mystery writers. Who could abandoned these? Ugh.

Well, that concludes yet another edition of The Ace of Spades Pet Thread. We wish to thank you for your contributions. If you would like to contribute photos, tips, news, etc. you can at petmorons at gee mail dot com.

7 My doggeh pictures haven't yet been posted. They are the best Chihuahuas in the universe.

This is racist, sexist, heterophobic, and caninephobicv! I demand that the pet thread post my doggeh pictures, or I'll shoot my dogs.

I'm sure that the Pet Thread is holding my doggehs for a special occasion, like Awesome Pet Day. I forgive all.

10 I did a bunch of research. I wanted a dog that did NOT shed, medium sized, not high energy, not yappy but would bark alerts, smart, heathy background, lived a relatively long time, easy to groom, sturdy and patient since I had 3 kids under 5 at the time.
Well...... I have a master groomer for the "easy grooming." The dog goes crazy when someone is at the door, until she knows who it is. If she she sees a squirrel or cat in the backyard she will "chase" it down. She's a "bit" stubborn but otherwise she is a good fit.

13 I guess I'm not terribly late for the party. I got Sophie, whose picture was up maybe two weeks ago, at a shelter, a place called, God help me, the Progressive Animal Welfare Society, PAWS. It's Seattle - you get used to these things. I wanted a new dog as it had been three years since my first one passed, so I went there with the idea that if I did not find a dog, they had a cat I would get. Either way, I was not coming home empty-handed.

So I walk around the cages, and I came upon a cage with two smaller dogs in it. One was a golden dog with some black splotches. The other had classic black and white border collie coloring, with the white blaze down the face, and a black and white body - you know what I mean. Other than the coloring, he looked houndish. Hound was barking up a storm, lending further credence to the hound theory, and the gold dog was just sitting there quietly.

I took hound out to their patio for a little meet-and-greet. I had not thought to bring treats so I just tried to pet him some and then get him to follow my fingers up with his nose: nose up, butt down, a good way to teach "sit." He just could not seem to get it but he was still a nice boy, if loud.

I took Sophie out and she was still quiet but she got the "sit" concept very quickly and was pretty calm - boy did she fool me.

So Sophie it was, and I could tell she was smart hence, Sophie. I went back to get her the next day after she was spayed, and she jumped right into my car and into my life. She's neurotic as hell, will kill other dogs for a tennis ball, loves all people unless they are wearing weird hats, and thinks "cheese" is the best word ever.

21 Last two cats we've had have found us. One was wandering our neighborhood, obviously in heat. We grabbed her and took her in before we had another litter of kittens roaming around. Complex we were living in at the time had already just finished dealing with a litter of ferals at the other end of the complex.

Second cat wandered into our garage once when we accidentally left the door open. She wanted to get away from the cold weather outside. She got stuck in the garage once we closed the door, and then we didn't want to just let her out again without finding an owner. Nobody claimed her, and once we found out she had two kinds of worms in her system, we weren't so interested in finding an owner anyway. Some deworming meds did the trick, although the bunch of dead worms in the litter box was nasty.

23 Growing up, I had Pekingese, two of them, got them when I was in first grade and my parents finally had to let them go to the Rainbow Bridge after I left for basic training. My husband is partial to Labs, Cheyenne is the third one we've had together and they've all been terrific family dogs. We've got four grandkids, and you couldn't ask for a better playmate. Cheyenne knows when her MonsterBoys are in the driveway, even before I do.
As to her name - our first Lab was named Choctaw, my darling black Lab that we lost last year was named Lakota, and this one's name is Cheyenne, so I guess it's not hard to pick out the theme...

Labs in our family since forever. I grew up with them and it never occurred to consider any other breed.

All mine with the exception of Spastic Lab have been English labs.

Elizabeth Rose started as a pretty calm pup, about 8 months in went nuts. It took year for her to attain some calm, though she remains pretty hyper.

All my other dogs were the complete opposite growing up.

We hunt our dogs for just about any small game, Liz is super for squirrels--she knows to go around the tree and will point.

Pointing is something she does instinctively, I never taught her.

31 Clever naming with Edgar and Agatha. I wonder what their mystery is? Could have been tourists with dogs ran off but these days its pretty easy to spread the word so one would think they could have spread the word and been called when dogs were found.

Posted by: PaleRider at April 16, 2016 03:09 PM (ADtrU)

32 Ah, yes. "Cheese".
My dogs have all been suckers for a piece of cheddar. Or a slice of American. Or a scrap of Swiss. Or...
The first Peke we got when I was a kid had to be fed scrambled eggs, baby food, and cottage cheese three times a day until she was twelve weeks old. (Or so the breeder said.) So until the day she died, I swear she could hear somebody in the house cracking open an egg from the next county...

Posted by: antisocialist at April 16, 2016 03:09 PM (9n14Y)

33 Cheyenne is such a beautiful girl. I miss having labs...
And I'm going to guess that Max is the one with bed-head. What a cutie.

As far as stories about our pets, I don't have a good one.
Tucker was my ex's Christmas gift from her Mom. She lost interest in him after a few months, so he came to live with me (she lost interest in me when my bank acct ran dry later that year!).

The kids named him. I assume with help from PopPop, a big Fox News fan. Otherwise he would've been named Zombie or Belle. I voted for Irving, but Tucker is what they settled on.
He'll answer to anything, though. Poopyhead, Stinkbutt, Shitstain, etc.

After having him for 3+ years, I would say that min-pins are one of the finest breeds available.

That there is really a beautiful dog.

I have a big yellow lab, that has some German Shepherd in him, judging by the shape of his skull (not like a typical Lab). He's big, goofy sheds like crazy, always wants a tennis ball.

My best friend, I love that dog so much.

37 We went to a store that is 25 miles from home this morning and I noticed a lady with a dog and I told my wife that likes like Maggy's brother (our adopted mutt from the humane society last October.. There was her and her two brothers up for adoption at 8 weeks old).

Walked up to her car and asked her and sure enough it was her brother, same adoption event on the same day. I can't wonder at what the odds of that random event happening were.

41 Really, the poop can wait.
Clearly, there are aspects of Ewok-keeping you haven't learned this week.

On goats and coffee, the legend is that they discovered it. A goat-herd noticed his flock acting "frisky" after eating certain beans. Now, talk about your egg-from-chicken-butt, oyster-on-the-beach "Guess I'll try that" moments in history...

56 In answer to your question. Mrs. JTB is allergic to most dogs and deathly allergic to cats (like can't breathe kind of allergies). But poodles, bichons and a few other non-shedding breeds of dog are okay. We looked for a breeder where we could see at least two generations of the pups. It also gave me a chance to check their temperament. We came home with two brothers so they could play together and keep each other company while we were at work. That plan went better than I had hoped.

We did a similar thing with our second batch but went for toys instead of standard poodles. We meant to get two brothers again. But there was a tiny female in the litter not spoken for. (I'm a big guy and she could curl up and sleep on one of my hands.) She was busy exploring every nook of her world when she wasn't playing or being cuddled. I turned into the world's biggest puddle of goo at the sight of her, so we ended up with three pups instead of just two. They were a joy to us for 18 years.

BTW, all our poodles were pure bred and AKC registered but not show quality. We cared nothing about shows, just wanted healthy, good natured dogs. And that's what we got.

Ha! I used to sell high-end fitness equipment for 20+ years. You'd be amazed at the number of very expensive treadmills I sold just for dogs. Like, $4000 treadmills. For. A. Dog...

As to doggies & balls - Tucker is the only dog I've ever known that couldn't care less. If you throw a ball, he'll look at you like youre dumb. But pick up a random stick in the yard and toss it? You have a friend for life.
He once chewed the insides out of a baseball, but will not chase a ball if his life depended on it.

65 Infidel,
I wound up getting a Dandie Dinmont Terrier. Supposed to be the calmest terrier breed. Hard to fine since it's a rare breed, less than 200 a year born & registered. But not any more expensive than a well bred, full breed dog and less than some of those designer breeds, i.e. "Poo" breeds, aka mutts.

70 Nice looking dogs.

We named Buckley by just tossing names out until he responded to one, figured he must know his own name better than we could. It works out well at the park as a conservative screening tool. If someone says, "Buckley? You mean like William F.?" we take that as a good clue as to orientation.

73 Mr. DeVille had a Golden when he was a kid so that's what he was partial to. We found a breeder who focused on field (hunting) lines rather than show ones.

There was one puppy in the litter that was really good at breaking through a line of his litter-mates, opening up holes, bumping them aside. And he kept on going long after most of them tired out. We chose him and named him Riggins. (Yep, Redskins fans.)

Since then we've had more --- sons (Sonny and Sam, as in Jurgensen and Huff,) a grandson (Bosco, as in Jeff Bostic,) and now we have a great-grandson, Cooley.

We've only had two cats, both rescues. The first we named Ernie for Ernie Banks. The second, now 11 years old, we named Maddux. (No disrespect to Atlanta, where he spent his greatest years, but he began and ended his career as a Cub.)

We're thinking about getting another cat if the Cubs go to the World Series.

I'm not sure why all of our pets have been male.
Maybe it's because that's the way it was in Mr. D's childhood home.
I think that's a big influence on the pets we select as adults. (???)

80 A pet gym? So, you could load up the dog, drive to the gym, and put said dog on a treadmill next to yours so you are both walking side by side. Hmmmm. Or you could put the leash on the dog, go through the front door, a take a walk together. Or is there more to this gym?

95 No one breed or even type with our mutts, but we've always had big friendly dogs. My dad has had a few bird dog types. One was a purebred Chesepeake Bay, dead grass color. That one adopted Dad. A farm neighbor raised them, had given Dolly to his sister who could have dogs, but only up to a certain size and Dolly got too big. Dolly was not getting much attention and was wandering the neighborhood. Crawled under the horse trailer when my dad was fixing the wiring and he petted her so she decided dad was her human. We already had a couple dogs at that time so they took her home several times, breeder said we could keep her if we wanted her and she kept coming back until my mom figured have a 3rd dog was easier than driving her the couple miles back home all the time.

One of the drawbacks of owning a lab is they have absolutely NO concept of boating safety.

Makes running around in the rowboat a pain,with 65lbs of dog perched as far out on the bow as possible.

102 Our Sadie (pictured a couple odd weeks ago with her sister Summer and the neighbors dogs)) was a rescue our Vet had and couldn't keep, as his son developed allergies. Pretty bad to be a vets kid who can't play with doggles. We got her a couple years after Becca, our first Yellow Lab passed. I'll tell about her another day. Anyway, she's a big girl, about 115lbs. Mostly lab, but some pitbull in her from a couple generations back. Really enthusiastic, scared Giggles when we went to meet her. We had to get her a tire or her own to play with, as the last one she brought back on her own had a Buick attached to it. Always wants to please/play and get a scratch. She's a big silly lunk.

106 So, they found a growth on my cat that could have been cancerous- it was not. And she had a cyst that came and went. So they were removed, as was my $$$.

Well, her recovery has been rocky. She was not using her litter box or eating/ drinking; turns out she has a UTI.

Poor little girl. Now I must grab her 2x daily and give her antibiotics. I'm sure she'll enjoy that as much as she is enjoying the cone of shame.

And as much as I'm enjoying doing constant washes due to her accidents.

107 Anyone getting a young cat, you can teach them to fetch like a dog, Sugar use to when we first got her as a kitten but we stopped and she forgot. Cinnamon use to twirl by herself but not often.

112 And great pics this week! I've want to send in a pic of my furry Noodle, but I'm waiting for her to do something really cute.

:: Watches 13-year-old cat sleep and waits ::

Noodle was a garage kitty, born a few houses down, and our neighbor asked us if we wanted one of litter. The neighbors had finally trapped Noodle's mother and were going to have her fixed and then released back into the neighborhood, where a few families had adopted her as much as she would tolerate. There were so many feral siblings of Noodle in our neighborhood that we spent a lot of anxious minutes glimpsing a cat darting through traffic and wondering if she'd gotten out of the house somehow. Of course, she's outlived them all. Now we just have one orange tabby that seems to own our block.

122 Never underestimate the brains, or at least the determination, of a poodle. Our white male, Argyle, had been blind since four years old but his brother was his seeing-eye dog. We had lost the brother a few months before when we had to make an emergency trip to Wisconsin from Virginia. Argyle was too frail to leave at a kennel, so we set up a cushioned spot in the back seat and used a harness on him that snapped into the seat belt latch. All comfortable and safe.

In the middle of the Indiana turnpike I felt a cold wet nose nudging my elbow. Our old, blind dog, without his brother for the first time in his life, had apparently channeled Houdini after leaving Ohio. He had figured out how to squirm out of the harness, sniff where we were, and feel his way between the front seats so he could get the cuddling that was his due. He spent the rest of the trip curled up on Mrs. JTB's lap, perfectly content.

123 We do not have our own pet, although we are a bed and breakfast for the local deer and rabbit population.

When I walk two miles down to the crossroad and back, a neighbor's dog comes to walk with me. And I do not even feed her.

Independence, a beautiful Bucovina Shepherd Dog, joins me as I walk down the hill past her dairy and chicken farm. She will come up to me, deign to be petted, then runs in front of me, like a sensitive teenager with her uncool dad.

I'm her excuse to explore the valley floor, the intermittent streams, now with frogs!, and the fields around us. She does occasionally spook and bark at Angus cattle. She faces the howls of coyotes fearlessly.

My life is a blessing because of her. Now if I can just get her to stop trying to herd oncoming cars on the valley floor road.

He now sleeps under the covers with me every night. Usually curled up & touching me, but sometimes flat on his back with all 4 legs straight in the air like a movie version of a dead dog.

One morning, I couldn't find him. I checked everywhere. I walked the entire acre backyard calling & looking for him or where he got out, to no avail.

I finally found him sleeping under the sofa cushions, wondering what all the commotion interrupting his sleep was.

138 I have a sad day to report on Pet day. I was awakened early to frantic phone calls from a neighbor who had fostered some orphan kittens I had last year with her corgi. Yes we nursed those kitties with with the pups. the momma dog loved her four tiny squeaky puppies and loves them still. Tragically, this morning, a dog they were dog sitting killed my favorite, now one year old silvery mackerel Tabby and white sister cat. Her silver and white sister misses her horribly, and her human mommy and her human daughter are inconsolable.


So at Zero dark thirty Grimmy and i went over with a box and retrieved our fallen Godkitten and took her to the Vet to get cremated. Their family was way too upset and the house was in an uproar and after we got home we both sat down and cried. I know the small furs dont live long enough but this really made us feel worse than bad. Something about saving a tiny thing and working hard to grow them up makes it so hard to take when tragedy strikes early and so randomly. So if you are the praying sort, please pray Little Catfish goes to a soft place to wait for her family, and finds the next life less difficult than this one.

This is my big comfort with all the rescues that dont make it. At east they were loved every day they were with us.

There was only one duplicate, Michael II, that was the replacement for Michael I who got hit by a car much too young. Both Michael cats loved to ride in cars and would settle down in the back seat and sleep as long as we were driving. Mrs H had several of our her cats leash-trained so we could take them on trips!

Fortress Hrothgar has had at least one feral cat in residence for 20+ years with three (Smoky, Stranger, and Camocat) on the premises right now!. I need to get a picture of the one called Camocat, who is obviously a cat sniper calmly waiting for the right opportunity.

179 YAY, Pirate and Layla finally made the Bigs! They are both rescue dogs. Pirate is as far as we know, 14 yo and is having trouble these days with her hips (the excess weight doesn't help). We think she's mostly Border Collie, although she looked like an emaciateed coyote when she adopted me.
We named her Pirate because she was something of a swashbuckler in her younger days.
Layla, about 4 yo, is mostly German Shorthair. She had the moniker when we got her and we were going to rename her "Gunny," but somehow Layla fits her. She has a blood disorder that requires daily meds, which is why she was in a shelter the first Two years of her life. For a "free " dog, she's cost us more than a National Field Trial Champion. She's worth it, though. Sweetest nature of any dog we've ever had.

yeah they were petsitting and the dog had been raised with cats and always good with them before. This was the first aggression. Catfish was a year old but gentle and there were even people there who tried to stop it (thus an entire house full of tearful adults.) Sometimes shit happens. This was bad shit and went down fast.

I had a different friend who had his daughter's bull terrier go after their sleeping pit bull for NO REASON, and when he tried to pull it off it went after him and tore his arm up. (The pittie did nothing but cry, was too scared to even fight back) Friend took that dog right outside and dealt with it. I was kinda horrified at the thought but he explained he loved the dog, was scared shitless it would hurt his wife, and it had always been scared of the vet, and lord knows what would happen if he dragged it in to a place it was scared of. Most of the people i know are animal people and longtime horsefolks on top of that. We try to be careful, and manage our places properly but when another person's critter gets added to the mix, you dont always know what will happen.

191 I have a big old dog, part Akita that was abandoned at a foreclosed house. When I met him, he was barking and so darn big, and I was looking for a little dog. I felt bad, though, because the animal control would have put him down, so I had the neighbor lady help me catch him and put him in the car. When I was driving home, he put his head on the console and looked up at me like I was an angel. His forehead was all wrinkled up, so I name him Duke because he reminded me of John Wayne.
I am getting worried about Duke, because he is getting pretty old and his hips really are getting bad. I try to walk him every day, because when I take out the leash he dances like a puppy.

200 My neighbor yesterday reminded me about my old cat. Very small, grey tiger -- toughest cat around. Would eat the corners of my books and would make a flying leap to get a dorito before you could get it into your own mouth. My cousin, a 6'4" cat person, wouldn't leave the bathroom one day because he said she would take out his eyes. Anyway, the neighbor is having mice problems and she reminded me of Shorty's round around the neighborhood. If she liked you, she would leave mice at your door. Frankly, I am somewhat at a loss with my very affectionate cat right now, since I have no idea of how to cope with that kind of personality.

201 Edgar and Agatha made the pet thread! They're famous!!!!

My theory as to why they were abandoned - I think they were owned by an old lady who either died or went to a nursing home and nobody wanted to take them. They had clothes on, so they were obviously somebody's pets, but they were dirty and hadn't been cared for. They are the cutest little Malteses, but they've never been properly trained, which we really need to do.

202 alamorgordo. MSM helps with mild dog arthritis. I've got two with more serious, one lost to a car as a pup before we got her and Ole took a hay bale on his back. I didn't see him when I was knocking it down from the stack. An internet friend had been recommending devils claw herb and finally I put aside my "dogs don't process herbs well" preconceptions and tried it and it helped a lot. Then last summer Ole was having more stiffness and I added turmeric based on internet buzz and the combo really helped.

I buy any herbs for the horses and dogs and some cooking ones at herbalcom dot com. Yes com is before and after the dot.

Best dog i ever had was a blue heeler dumped on the local pound, by a family who didn't want pop's dog. When i got him, he was an 80 lb dog on a 50 lb frame, didn't recognize dog food as meant for him, and very traumatized. He'd been kept as the office dog at the shelter, and their unofficial mascot. I looked everywhere in the kennels for something suitable and found NOTHING. So i told the lady who ran the shelter that i was looking for something more like the office dog, that they kept in the cattery at night.



"WALDO?" she asked incredulously. "You want WALDO?!"


Yes. I wanted that one. So the next thing i know I have an overweight elderly blue cattle dog in the front seat of my truck, driving home. He was so sad. He collapsed on the floor of the kitchen, in a puddle of depressed elder canine. My very shy white cat fitted herself around his fat body and laid next to him. He sighed and went to sleep. BEST DOG EVER. next day he followed me everywhere, did whatever i told him, loved what i loved and was accepted by the cats as one of them. he knew all about horses and stayed out from under them. He had obviously been a ranch dog. To this day i have no clue why those people didnt want him. Wally really was perfect until he got cancer and started to suffer incontinence due to illness. I gotta send the pet thread a picture. He was a jolly fellow and really looked it.

It isn't a sure thing, just a greater likelihood. I've read that black poodles have the fewest health problems but don't know if that is true. Your concern about the small size of toys is legit.

We used to let her out at nite then go out to call her to come in. Unbeknownst to us, an elderly lady who had lived across the street and recently passed was also Frieda.

The other neighbors thought we were trying to summons the dead neighbor or something. Finally, another neighbor asked us about it. We explained that was the dog's name. Not sure who was embarrassed more.

Seriously if God ever asks me what the best gift He ever gave me was, i dont know what i will tell him, because its a serious toss up between Waldo and Grim. I think Grim wins because he lasted way longer (Wally only had a few more years in him when i got him, he was obviously a very old dog.) But blue heelers are something special. I had a female red one, when i was a teenager but she was a nippy thing and though i loved her, nobody else did and she was not pretty. Waldo was a friend to all, and kept me going after my divorce until Grimmy found me. I even got a super low bedframe so he could haul his fat elderly dog butt into bed with us.

220 Love all the cute pics of your precious kittehs and doggehs. We did make the decision to put down our wonderful cat Schmooey on Friday. This poor little thing had so much wrong with her. 10 years ago she fell out of a tree or something and broke her jaw and a front tooth, then she faced epilepsy which is probably why she fell out of wherever she did, then a few months after that food and airborne allergies started and took her beautiful coat with having to give her tons of steroids to keep her from scratching herself to death they were the worst I'd ever seen. Then last year in January she developed IBD or lymphoma and had to take prednesone twice a day for this whole year. Then this March she had an allergic reaction to something and scratched herself raw and her fur fell out some more in patches, then she got pancreatitis. After a stint in the hospital we took her home and hoped the antibiotics would work, but she just got weaker and weaker and more dehydrated. I'm sure the year of prednesone did it's toll on her tiny body not to mention the decade of allergy steroids. I did have that wonderful year where for the most part other than throwing up pretty regular she was pretty happy so I can't complain. I have never seen anything like all the issues this cat had. I wonder what was in her gene pool.

Best cat I ever had though lovely tuxedo with beautiful face markings, very delicate, no more than 8 or 9 pounds at her heaviest, she died at 13 years old. Miss her terribly. Thanks for letting me tell you about her.

225 My son's dog, a yellow lab, will nudge my son when he thinks he is nodding off or even pretending to go to sleep.
Ace, the lab, will get up off his bed on the floor walk over to my son, who is sitting on the couch, and first nose him in the knee. If that doesn't wake him, he'll start licking his face until my son stirs. He does not do this to anyone else, living there or visiting. My theory is that Ace thinks my son is the head of the pack and should be on alert at all times.

Of course, if my kids decide to 'gift' me with another rescue dog, no doubt the silly beast would be just as indulged. Funny, the cat only does the laydown with me -- my size 16-17 feet son doesn't get that treat.
For all of you, the end of the semester dogs every year are abandoned by many college kids. Any college town has a wonderful group of dogs just waiting for someone.

That is how I have my current border collie/foxhound mix. He is a nice dog and pretty well socialized when I got him (6 mos). He and the cat live for the grandchildren. All of my children are on a rampage about that kind of selfishness. My mom had a fit when I was bringing home my lab rat, but she found a home for him with a neighbor. Hector lived long and well -- fat, sassy and taken to school every year to be passed around for show-and-tell. A dog is much more complicated, so I just keep talking about college towns.

People also leave their pets when they lose their house. I would never do that. If I couldn't find a home, I know this sounds mean, but I would have someone shoot my pet. It's better than leaving them in a back yard to starve.
There are also rescue groups, humane society, etc.
I would kill my kid if they got a pet in college that wasn't a goldfish.
Our friends get new pets all the time because people drop the cats or dogs off in the country. I've no idea what is wrong with these people.

256 Shibumi,
My vet said 250mg every day. A little more is OK. It works the same way it does for humans. They may have bacteria in their bladder but the cranberry keeps it from turning into an infection?
Also,
Canned food has more fluid. I add water to the canned food.
I hope your kitty is on the mend soon. My cat kept getting the infections until I switched to all canned food and the cranberry. No problems since.
Stress can also cause UTIs.

257 For those considering getting a poodle. We always kept them clipped short and even. They weren't hunters and maintaining those ridiculous show clips takes a pro groomer and money. The simple, even cut was easy to do at home. And we preferred that look anyway. Also, it doesn't take long for an unshorn poodle to look like a sheep after a hard winter. :-)

259 L,Elle, I will set the scenario for you. Last Saturday I posted my plight once again on this thread. I saved the thread and at 3:00 am Sunday morning there was a response from a wonderful person in the UK. After several emails this person put me in touch with two breeders, that I have now had contact with. One litter is born and the other is coming in a couple of weeks. Both of these litters are within days driving distance from me. Moron karma has smiled on me.

260 Coming late to the thread as usual. We name our pets regular human names like Adam and Rosalie. This seems a natural enough practice, but my wife tells me that she is increasingly encountering people at work who act as if this is something weird to do.

Am I missing something? because it completely baffles me that anyone would even think along such lines. It's as if they see something of significance in our not naming our pets Fluffy and Skipper.

261 Ben,
That's really awesome. I'm happy for you (and your soon to be new pup).
Puppybreath.
I know it's quite odd, but Puppybreath may well be m6 favorite smell in the world. Nothing like it...
It must be some latent childhood memory thing?

As to naming pets regular names, I try to. I noted upthread that I wanted to name my minpin Irving as a puppy (after Uncle Irving). Kids decided on Tucker, instead.
But I've knows dogs named Bob, Jim, Sally, Gladys, blahblahblah...
I used to keep lizards, and they all had normal names. Eugene, Gertrude, Esther, etc - usually named for family.

262 MSM is 99% Pure Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)
I buy it online from valley vet supply. Any equine feed store, Tractor Supply, etc will have it with the supplements and labeled just as MSM -you will need to show ID buying in person. I guess with online they figure the cc and address is good enough. I have never even so much as watched Breaking Bad but MSM is an ingredient in meth.

I get the 00 size capsules from herbal com and the big (80-100) lb dogs got 2 pills a day, now they get maybe 2/3 with the serious anit-inflammatory herbs cuz I'm only going to feed them so many pills a day and they are beyond warding off arthritis with the joint building MSM supplement.

You can also buy MSM caps made up from Foster Smith or other dog places or in your vitamin aisle at the people store if you want to spend way more money. For the Devils claw they get now I fill the big part of the 00 capsule with DC and then the rest with MSM. 1/8 tsp of D/C for a smaller dog was recommend by my friend and if you feed wet dog food you may not need to use capsules for the DC and maybe not the turmeric but dogs don't seem to like MSM taste although the horses don't notice it. I use the 0 size capsules for the turmeric because I take it too and the big capsules were hard for me to swallow. Dogs and I both take 2 capsules of turmeric a day. I don't take any DC, just use ibuprofen for myself.

I would not give any of this to a cat w/o checking with vet or at least online. Cats are allergic to some things that are fine for dogs.

She's on a mix of dry and wet food now CaliGirl.

I suspect that she was starting to go into a UTI, and the surgery/ stress caused it to definitely happen. She's pretty lethargic now, just wants to cuddle and sleep. Hoping to get some food/liquid into her today.

270 i was out doing errands...i hope you morons see this:

we found Smokie on a rescue page (this one, i think: 1144987.rescueme.org/) and made arrangements to drive down to El Cajon, east of San Diego and pick him up from the people who had rescued him.

his mom died when he was 4 days old, and, being raised in a house full of dogs, he had imprinted as one, which meant he didn't meow, and would do strange things like bringing the neighbor's dog home with him.

but we almost didn't get him: we had made the arrangements for Caturday, October 25th, 2003. as we drove out the 210 to take the 15 south to reach the I-8, we saw numerous fires burning in the mountains around Big Bear, etx, and even drove through one burning on the side of the 15 in Corona.

but once we were south of the 91, things were looking better... for awhile

as we got near San Diego county, somewhere around Fallbrook, we noticed a YUGE cloud of smoke to the southeast and started to wonder. the further south we got, the bigger, and closer it got. it was the Cedar Fire, the largest wildfire in #Failifornia history (so far) and it was totes out of control and headed right towards us. we eventually got to where the CHP had closed the freeway, and had to get off...

that was when we ran into police blockades on major roads, but, given my years of repoing cars and running around the countryside playing Cav Scout with the 1/18th Cav, i eventually snuck back onto the freeway, and headed further south towards the 8, often with fire on both sides of an otherwise deserted freeway.

we were in touch with the rescuers, who had been ordered to evacuate, with only their rescues their hard drives, and some clothes, and we met them at an evacuation site, where all the animal owners from the area were in part of the Walmart parking lot.

we got Smokie into his carrier, and were helping his rescuers and the others there with their animals when the fire department came by and ordered the evacuation of the evac point... yeah, it was that kind of day.

we got in the car, and didi-mau'd west on the 8 to the 15 north, once again through fire and smoke, and GTFO of the area...

given the adventure of the day, and his coloration, his name was a given. he's pictured with Resident Evil's L1A2, which i talked her into buying, because we didn't have one, and it could be used in a CMP match (except of course, that it's a heavy barrel, and a stone pig to shoot from the standing position, or even the prone unsupported one, for that matter, hence the bipod.)

he was a sweet and loving boy, but lymphoma took him from us last summer.

F cancer.

284 Since you asked, our rescue Sheltie was named Chopin. When I said Chopin was not a name I could call loudly, my husband suggested "Charlie" and it stuck.

He also named our previous dog, a rescued Flat-coated Retriever named Ranger by the Humane Society. He pulled the name "Dooley" out of the air and gave no reason for choosing it. A few days later, a friend who lived across the country told me the English Bulldog at her local bookstore had died a few weeks earlier. That dog's name was Dooley. My friend claimed the name was floating around looking for a good dog.... I don't know about that, but Dooley (the second) was a great dog.

285 On the weekend special threads I often just go up and down reading new comments.
It's very sad to hear from someone loosing their furry friend, my two are our 2nd and 3rd and while they are fine and in good health their whole lives they are 15 years old I think. I've always wondered that one will go before the other what their reaction will be. Cinnamon as the more personable lap kitty will I think miss her sister. Sugar having 3 times taken her sister as a hostile will not miss her as much we think. But until it happens I really don't know.

286 Edgar and Agatha may well have run away or been with an owner who got lost or injured in the National Forest. They may have survived a while on their own.

It doesn't have to be a case of abuse, people disappear or lose things, other people, and animals all the time at parks.

If the owners were local and/or healthy there would have been an extensive search, you would expect, but that still leaves a lot of possibilities.

There is now an inflatable doughnut that tightens with an adjustable Velcro strap that is far more comfortable than the cone. I wonder why your Vet didn't offer the option? My little brat terrier had extensive surgery a few weeks back & I found this time around the inflatable neck doughnut was far more convenient & comfortable for the her than the cone that depresses any animal. If I had to wear one,, I would take the doughnut. My little dog ate so much better, those cones are not conducive for either eating or sleeping, but are less expensive, but only a bit, like about $8 bucks.

298 At nearly 70, I thought my puppy days were over. But, I got a bee in my bonnet over a certain black, brown and white goldendoodle. Now I am waking at 4:00 am and taking "Tattoo" out for a wee. She was 8 weeks old and weighed in at 9 lbs. when we got her 3 weeks ago. Now she's 15 lbs. at 11 weeks. OMG. She can be a squirmy bundle when she want to but I assume I will get stronger as she gets bigger. Right? Anyhow, it's brought new life and tons of fun to our house. The other 2 dogs are adjusting very well, even the neurotic one. Fortunately, I have 2 daughter who will look after the dogs if I am unable to. They encouraged me to get the pup. BTW, she's named "Tattoo" because of her spotted belly and we were talking about Fantasy Island just before we picked her up. Bob's your uncle. (Our other dogs are rescues.)

299 I have named my dogs after the British characters in Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe novels. The barn cats get named after the French characters. .

For many years I couldn't own pets because my work schedule would have been unfair to them. Since I retired I have been catching up. The first was Clare, a rescue Jack Russell, named after the servant girl a young Lt. Sharpe rescued in India. Unlike her opportunistic namesake, my Clare never stopped being grateful, often being brave well past the point of stupidity when she felt I was threatened.

Clare shared guard duty with Cooper, a German Shepherd Akita cross. He was my exemplary Chosen Dog. His obedience was on and off under normal circumstances but when there was an intruder he behaved like a trained police dog. (He flunked out of a police dog training program) He was the smartest dog I ever encountered but the Akita independence was strong in him. .

The current dog is Maggie, an engaging black and tan Treeing Feist named after the teenage prostitute who took in the 12 year old Sharpe when he ran away from the orphanage. Think a Doberman seen through the wrong end of a binoculars abd that's Maggie. .

The cats began with Lucille, a lovely long haired black cat named after the love of Sharpe's life. Then came Calvet, a feral male kitten who wandered in and became as much of a tomcat as the one-eyed general who was Sharpe's temporary and unlikely ally after the Battle of Toulouse. The current barn cat is Boney, short for Bonaparte, a smallish sized male tabby cat who acts like he owns the place.

I have a two cairns in my garden that cover the remains of my deceased dogs and cats. .
