Ace of Spades Pet Thread [Mis. Hum.]

zz July 2nd pet thread.jpg

Happy Independence Day weekend to you. Thank you for stopping by to visit today.

Here are a few pet and animal items in the news this past week.

A number of years ago we had a Brittany Spaniel who was terribly afraid of fireworks, among other things. Do you have a pet who is afraid of fireworks? Do you plan on firing off some fireworks? As we approach the Big Day, here are a few tips to keep your pets safe.


Cat watching horror movie. Funny or torturous, you decide. h/t Joanne.


Meet the PetMorons

zz gerbil.jpg

Say hello to Brownie. Brownie is one of 2 Gerbil sibs owned by Mandy P Lurking Lurker who Lurks and her kids.


zz turtle.jpg

No, this isn't Mitch McConnell, meet Turtle. He's a Mojave Desert Tortoise owned by Ron. Per Ron Turtle just came out of a 5 month hibernation.


zz concrete girl.jpg

Concrete girl submitted a photo of her horse named Whiskey. Its easier to say than Valu-Rite. Thanks Concrete girl.



zz duke lowell.jpg

Moron Duke Lowell is into fish. Here's his 175 gallon aquarium. Duke didn't tell us how many fish fit into it. I bet a lot.

zz museisluse.jpg

Museisluse would like us to meet Scooter (3) and Jack (15). They are part Schnauzer/Poodle. Nice looking dogs. Don't see a lot of gray in Jack. Do you dye his hair?

zz fabio.jpg

The British are coming! No, that's Fabio. A horse owned by Sixkiller. The photo comes from festivities at North Fort Hood.


zz weasel cat.jpg

Weasel submitted this photo of Lucy or LuLu. Looks like the Lucy got caught doing something she shouldn't have. Thanks Weasel.

zz shibumi.jpg

Now here's a cat who got caught. I kid, I kid. Meet Penny who belongs to Shibumi. She had surgery and therefore the cone of shame.


zz cfomahm.jpg

Howdy to the 3 Stooges. Nah, just kidding of course. 3 brothers from the same litter, Pumpkin, Z'thras & Mr. Bigglesworth owned by Cfomahm.


zz raymond.png

Last but not least is Raymond. Raymond is owned by Ghost of Kari, he was named after the City of Raymondville where he was adopted. Looks like a happy dog.


Well, that is all for today. Once again we thank you for all the submissions. You can contact us with tips, news stories or photos at where? Why it would be petmorons at gee mail dot com.

1 Our little ketteh had to go to vet yesterday. She was having blood in her urine. As I expected she had a bladder infection and have to have an antibiotic shot. She has still got her nose out of joint and not talking to us.

Our cats would run to the bedroom and hide under the bed when we shot off fireworks. We haven't done it in a long time now. It just doesn't seem as fun as it used to be.

No, my insane dog likes to run around trying to catch the explosions, leaping into the air and snapping when a shell bursts. She does the same thing with any flying bugs that happen by.

Our dog would just disappear on the 4th and not come back until the 5th. If I knew where she was hiding, I wd have found her and comforted her.

12 I love the top picture of all the dogs in front of the flag. Very nice.


We went down to the lakefront this morning to go to the Farmer's Market, and there must have been some kind of event going on in the field across the way. There were maybe 30 or 35 German Shepherds being walked by their owners, doing different obedience-type things. They were fun to watch even though I am not a big fan of German Shepherds.

13 I have a cocker spaniel and dachshund and both are afraid of fireworks. Though both are of Mexican heritage, they are second generation, fully-assimilated American dogs and as such they prefer to shelter in place during fireworks celebrations.

15 Anyone know what breed of horse Sixkiller has? It looks magnificent. I don't think it's a thoroughbred or quarter horse.

Posted by: JTB at July 02, 2016 02:57 PM (V+03K)

16 I feel bad for dogs on the 4th. So many of them are terrified of the noises. There are medications you can get to help that. They also work for thunderstorms, but since they have to be given about an hour before the event, the medication can be pretty impractical for storm use, unless you're fairly certain you're going to get hit in an hour or two.

20 Dog has been hiding in the bathroom a lot the past few days and I'm pretty sure he won't emerge until Tuesday. Cat is his normal overly-affectionate self. I really don't know what to do with such a cat -- my two previous were independent and talkative.

Posted by: mustbequantum at July 02, 2016 03:02 PM (MIKMs)

21 Sixkiller, Fabio is stunning! Friesian??

Whiskey is also a good looking horse, Concrete girl. I'm going to guess a Quarter horse, but I could be wrong.

Love the "diverse" pets on the pet thread!! Nothing against our beloved dogs and cats, but it's nice to give some love and kudos to the other pets too!!

22 "We can't be sure which cat did it, because we don't have cameras in there, but we have a good idea because there was one younger female cat who really liked playing in sinks," volunteer Terry Arbour told the Miami Herald. "There was a tall spout in that sink that moves around, and the cat somehow was able to turn it on. It's possible there was collusion from others, but she probably had something to do with it."

25 No one likely remembers this, but last month BEFORE the Austrian election vote-counting was done, I predicted that the Left would commit voter fraud and steal the election at the last second with fake "mail-in" ballots. And that's exactly what happened, erasing a seemingly insurmountable lead by the right-wing candidate.

Incomprehensively, the right-wing party conceded immediately, even though it was apparent even before it happened what was being set up, and when it did happen, it was absolutely obvious vote-fraud.

Well, interestingly, a month later, they FINALLY unconceded and FINALLY got a judge to look at the fraud -- and he just threw the election results out!:

http://hotair.com/archives/2016/07/02/oh-by-the-way-austrias-presidential-election-was-overturned/

So, now, unlike with Brexit, they actually DO get to do a "do-over" election. But in this case it is merited, as the original Austrian election was illegal and corrupt, something which wasn't even alleged in the UK.

Although the right-wing candidate is a member of a party whose earlier leader got caught up in a ridiculous "Hitler scandal" (he dressed up as Hitler for a costume party -- either in extremely bad taste, or revealing his true sentiments), the actual current candidate was not involved in that scandal, and mostly is just running on a "stop immigration" platform, so I want him to win. (The Left-wing candidate recently tweeted a picture saying something like "Austria is shit," so you know where he's coming from -- extreme anti-patriotism and national self-loathing). Their president election is even more extreme than ours. And the final (corrupted) vote was literally 50%-50% (though in reality it was 52% for the right-wing guy).

28 Three pet tails from this week, two from today.

1.

Night before last, early dawning really, Milady hears the old gray cat, Spark, whining to be let out. She lets him out, goes back to bed. Later, when I get up, he's not around, and doesn't show up all morning. Since he's usually a steady porch-sitter, and on-time for every meal, that was worrisome. But, when we got home in the evening, there he was. Jus' fine.

When they get older, or don't follow usual habits, it can be worrying. From eagles and owls to raccoons and coyotes, there's a lot out there to nab a kitteh. But, our foursome seems to survive. (The dog being out a lot to ward off predators helps a lot, I'm sure.)

31 2.

Got up this morning, opened the door. Ol' Gimli the pooch gets off his divan and wanders out. He gives a strong shivering shake, just as I reach down to pat his hind end, and his back end seems to fail, and he goes down in a way that would be comical if he weren't getting so on in years.

But, he picked himself up, drank a bunch of water, and ran off, apparently just fine. I attribute it to unreadiness while shaking, stiffness, possibly a leg "asleep," after a long night - until I see other evidence of problems. I'm in similar condition in the morning.

I will guess it was a Schutzhund training class. It's specialized training for German Shepherds, Malinois and Dobermans who compete in protective training.

My German shepherd was "not a candidate" for schutzhund. Bless her heart, she worries so very much about everything and everyone. Loudly. And very worriedly. So protection training would not work for her.

35 3.

Charlie cat came in a while ago, meowing loudly as he often does, but keeps meowing, and then I hear, mixed with his meows, a desperate squeaking. He's brought in a good-sized field mouse.

Experience has taught me, cats can't be conduced to take their prizes back outside, so I grab a plastic cup and manage to get it over the mouse just as Charlie sets it free. I throw the poor critter out, and show Charlie where it is - sorry, mouse, but you were probably fang-poisoned or otherwise doomed already anyway. Darwin is cruel.

Always wonder if cats share those trophies with us because we are, obviously, too poor as hunters to ever provide fresh meat.

36 "A number of years ago we had a Brittany Spaniel who was terribly afraid of fireworks, among other things. Do you have a pet who is afraid of fireworks?"

Most of our dogs were skittish, not afraid. However, our beloved and faithful American Cocker Spaniel, Mollie (RIP), absolutely loved fireworks. She would run after thrown firecrackers and pick them up in her mouth (yes, they would explode in her mouth) and would chase (and never catch, of course) Roman candles and bottle rockets. We loved that dog...and miss her dearly.

Maybe that was it. I did see one Dobie in there, which confused me. Also a black dog that I had trouble identifying. The Doberman was stunning. I love Dobermans. I've never met one that wasn't a total sweetheart.

43 Our first poodles, standards, were not bothered by fireworks. It was night time so time to sleep. Popping noises could be ignored.

Our toy poodles were just the opposite. They did not approve of fireworks or the whistling bottle rockets. Their refuge was Mrs. JTB's lap. If that wasn't available, they hid behind me. Oddly, only the biggest toy, Mega Puppy, (all ten pounds of him) barked at the noise.

I will bet the black was either a giant schnauzer, which are always black, or a Black Russian Terrier. They are both large, black, and used for police work in Eastern Europe. The schnauzers are great dogs, but the BRT's are very temperamental. Figures, I guess.

50 The country club down the street decided to shoot off fireworks last night, the first time they have ever done so. One of my dogs was not happy about it. We were far enough away that the noise wasn't super-scary for Edgar, but he wanted to stay down in the basement where he couldn't hear it.

I rub it in to my golden retriever that I've personally killed three gophers and one rat (they sometimes live in palm trees here). I point at myself and say "Four" and then at him "zip."

It doesn't seem to bother him. He digs after gophers, but never catches them, while doing more damage than the gopher ever did.

60 No grandkids today, so both animals are out and won't wake up until tomorrow am at the earliest. Dog and baby are still somewhat jealous of each other, so the baby tries for the dogs toys to chew and backs up to my knees for a back scratch just like the dog. Cat has really intimidated the baby and he won't even pet him when cat sits next to him. Dog has adopted preteen girl grandkid and is madly in love with her and I think he may remember when he was younger and my youngest girl was his main squeeze.

72 Israel's Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan has launched a scathing attack on social media giant Facebook, saying the company and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg have blood on their hands and bear some responsibility for Thursday's shocking murder of a 13-year-old Israeli girl.

Hallel-Yaffa Ariel was stabbed to death as she slept in her bed in Kiryat Arba by a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist, who had repeatedly incited violence and told of his desire to die killing Israelis on Facebook.

A video of his mother praising his actions and calling for more attacks circulated on Facebook soon after and, shockingly, still has not been taken down.

79 It just occurred to me to mention Zylkene for you dog owners out there. Mine has separation anxiety issues, so when I kennel her, that's what they give her. Keeps her totally chilled out and they tell me works for all sorts of canine anxiety issues.

Farcebook is too busy policing those conservative h8rs, but couldn't bring themselves to do anything against the poor oppressed members of the religion of peace.

83 Whiskey made the holiday weekend pet thread...thank you!

I went many a mile on that horse.
For those in the know, he was straight out of Hobby.

Beautiful sorrel, 15.3 hands.

Thanks to p for alerting me he made it today.

Pretty sure it means pantsless. Although, I've been out of touch, perhaps the horde has "matured" . . .

Posted by: Peaches at July 02, 2016 04:31 PM (EgOr3)

92 How many of you have kittehs that snore loudly?

My tortie snores like a bear in hibernation, as loud as a hooman

Posted by: kbdabear at July 02, 2016 04:32 PM (p1P7F)

93 kbdabear, I had a fat tom who snored like a lumberjack and would actually snort himself awake like Whuuuuuu?

Posted by: All Hail Eris, Literate Savage at July 02, 2016 04:35 PM (jR7Wy)

95 mine don't snore but they both purr loudly.....the orange one cracks us up because he has a "broken purr" it doesn't come out like a regular cat....but then he's not a regular cat.....very strange boy.....

Posted by: phoenixgirl at July 02, 2016 04:38 PM (0O7c5)

96 ^^^concrete girl- Are you saying Whiskey was an own son of Hobby Horse?

yep
they bred a paint mare to him hoping to throw a paint stud colt but alas, Whiskey, colored like whiskey was born.

I was pleased as punch with him.

Posted by: concrete girl at July 02, 2016 04:51 PM (ceWrl)

97 concrete girl- When Hobby Horse came to Texas we were lucky enough to get a breeding. The fates were with us because he only settled 3 mares before he became sterile. Ours was one of the three. We built an entire breeding program around that colt.

98 One of cats snores and makes snuffling noises sometimes. She looks a lot like a Persian, except that she's mostly black. I'm guessing she might have some of the snub Persian nose.

99 Cali has approved a drug made from Cannabis for dogs to deal with the stress, especially from fireworks on the 4th. They said it has no thc in it so it won't get doggy high, but you have to possess a med marijuana card to get it. They said that the 4th sees the largest number of dogs arriving to shelters than any other day of the year, because they get freaked out by fireworks. Is this a thing? Would you do it for your pet?

Posted by: Tinfoilbaby at July 02, 2016 05:16 PM (6Ll1u)

100 Nice pets.

Posted by: Tinfoilbaby at July 02, 2016 05:16 PM (6Ll1u)
Never! I actually have the card but I've seen pot make people paranoid, which is the last thing you need it a pet.

Posted by: Peaches at July 02, 2016 05:27 PM (EgOr3)

102 What a delightfully diverse bunch of pets! All I have are a couple of dogs and some cats, but I really enjoy seeing the neat critters other people have found room in their lives for.

My oldest dog, Remy, is at least half Shetland Sheepdog, and I have yet to meet a Sheltie that didn't go crazy at any sort of loud noise. Last year, I gave up and got some tranquilizers from the vet for her, took them home and realized they were Xanax, the very same thing I take. So, this year I didn't get her any of her own drugs, just shared mine with her. I give her .5 mg at 6:00pm and another .5 at 8:00pm. I'm afraid to give her any more, so I will be sitting up with her until about 3:00am on the 4th.

103 Wow - Fabio made the pet thread!

Thanks for the nice comments Horde. Fabio is definitely a Friesian. He's a stallion...we finished up 'breeding season' last month, so he'll be without female companionship for a while now. Poor guy!

Posted by: Sixkiller at July 02, 2016 06:02 PM (yxupc)

104 Posted by: Sixkiller at July 02, 2016 06:02 PM (yxupc)

Fabio is quite amazing! Very handsome horse. I'm sure the ladies will be missing him, too. :-)

Posted by: Peaches at July 02, 2016 06:05 PM (EgOr3)

105 Thanks Peaches! Fabio is a big sweetie...the most gentle stallion I've ever been around.

Posted by: Sixkiller at July 02, 2016 06:07 PM (yxupc)

106 Lots of different pets today. Glad to see other creatures have homes.
Love especially horse photos.

Academics always know best, don't they?!?

With all the pets we've had over the decades, not one has ever objected to being called a pet. All really like to be petted, as well. It fits.
