Meet The PetMorons

gizmounnamed (3).jpg

Mis Hum,
Nine years ago, Gizmo joined our household at the tender age of 12 weeks when he slipped between the skid plate and oil pan in my 4Runner and “followed” me home. Once discovered, he promptly ran off to the nearest wood pile to hide until I was able to coax him out with food and water. Over several days he was enticed to venture ever closer to the house, and then I was permitted to touch him, then to pet and, finally, to hold him on my lap. The feral never totally left the cat, but he was happy in his new country home, with “big brother” Dirt to show him the ropes and to teach him manners and hunting. An outdoor cat officially, Gizmo decided somewhere along the way that he much preferred to be indoors. He would retreat to his little kitty bed underneath our bed after breakfast to sleep all day, emerging at dinner time for food, a trip outside, and limited companionship. He preferred to sleep on the big bed at night and would curl into my husband’s belly for warmth. It was this strict health and exercise regimen that saw him grow to over 15 pounds. Dirt crossed the Rainbow Bridge in February, and while Gizmo seemed to notice the absence, he did not appear to be disturbed by the loss.

We completed a cross-country move at the end of June and Gizmo was a real champ during the entire process. He adapted well to staying in a hotel and rode in his kitty carrier in the back seat of the pickup for three long days without complaint as we traveled over 1,300 miles. Once in the new home, Gizmo found comfort in hiding behind the dryer all day until he emerged in the evening for food and a little companionship. Eventually he wanted to go outdoors, and for a few days he explored the yard (and slept) until it was time to go inside for the night. But when Gizmo failed to show for dinner last Tuesday we began to worry. By Friday we struggled to accept the fact that we might never see Gizmo again or know for certain what happened to him. But God smiled on us, as God so often does, and gifted us with the very knowledge that we had prayed for, but did not deserve. We now know that Gizmo decided to run away from home, and that he traveled safely almost three miles over four days before going down a little country road. It was there that he crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and it was there that God led us to find him. We thank God for letting us have Gizmo for nine years, and for showing us what happened to our boy. RIP, Gizmo. - Legally Sufficient

What a handsome cat. We know how much he meant to you and we are sorry for your loss.

I’m a rare commenter, mostly lurker who goes by the name Redinabluestate. Meet Luca our newest moron family addition. He’s named after Luca Brazzi from The Godfather. He is sharing Bella’s home with her. As you can see, she has given him grudging acceptance after 10 days of growling and bared teeth (no nips or bites thank God). We were a family of three dogs but our son got married a year ago April and took his shepherd, and our daughter had to put her Maltese, Molly, down a year ago June so it’s been a bit lonely for us and Bella. She’s 9 and now she’s having to cope with a 3 month old shepherd in her pack. He loves anything he can chew on, and driving Bella crazy. After raising three shepherds and going through two vacuum cleaners I swore I would never get another shepherd. But they are such smart, loyal and protective dogs. And that face! Thanks for doing the AOS Pet Thread. It’s got to be my favorite.

Ahhhh, the new puppy entering the home of an older dog. It can be a challenge at times. But, worth it in the long run. What a nice story. Thank you for sharing.

Pup Cup IMG_0209 (1).jpg

Conor, again.
There is a great farm market (Messicks) outside of Warrenton VA, that I pass fairly frequently in my travels. In addition to great fresh farm produce, they serve homemade frozen custard. The important thing is that if you buy a custard for yourself, AND you have a dog with you, they throw in a free vanilla "Pup Cup". Conor has been there often enough that he virtually drags me from the parking lot to the custard window, Needless to say, it is a great break for both man and/or beast to get some custard whilst traveling! - Regards Hrothgar

I don't believe in reincarnation. But, if I did, I would pray to come back as a dog of yours. Custard? Your rock! Thanks.

This is Clover. We haven’t had a dog for twenty five years so we figured it was time. She is rescue of some indeterminate terrier breed. She is every bit as cute and quirky as her picture. - Michelle

She is cute. And what an unusual name. I think it is a great name. We are happy that you added a pet to your world. Congrats!

IMG_1374 (1).jpg

It’s always good to read the AoS pet thread. You have featured my 2 Bloodhounds, Scarlett O’Hara and Duchess of Marlborough, under my nom de plume, Swim Mom, before on your thread. I also have 2 other dogs, Sophie and Latté.

Attached is a picture of my dog Latté, a pure-bred yellow Labrador with the daintiest paws in the world. Her 2 quirks were that she hated water and getting her photo taken.

She was given to my family by a student when he overheard me telling a colleague that our vet recommended that we get a “friend” for our first Bloodhound, Belle Watling, (I’m a fan of Gone with the Wind, ) because she was eating $75 brass sprinklers, accidentally knocking our first Dachshund, Maggie, into the pool, and stripping the husk off our palm trees.

Latté’s original owner was moving into a small apartment after a divorce and needed some place for her and another littermate named Mocha. My husband was open to owning 4 dogs, but 5 made him whimper, so we took Latté and another colleague took Mocha.

Today, Latté died “from having lived...” (one of my favorite lines in “Death Comes For the Archbishop,” by Willa Cather.) She was 18 years and 7 months old. We knew it was only time once her eyes and ears went, and walking became harder and harder, but we’re hoping to keep her quiet beauty with us for at least another 5 or 6 years.

The other 3 dogs can’t understand why she isn’t laying on her bed. They are actively avoiding it. I try not to project anthropomorphism onto dogs, but old habits die hard. The other three, in my opinion, are in mourning.

It will comfort my daughter to see that others will mourn Latté’s death. Stay cool.

So sorry to hear of your loss. What a long and happy life Latte had. From my experience pets do mourn the loss of other pets.

Longtime lurker here with a picture of my two rescued girls, Chloe and Bella, trying out our new camper. Not a bad life for a couple of retirees (the dogs, not their human servants).

It appears that the 2 pooches have quite the gig going for them. We see water in the background. So do Bassets swim? Enjoy your camping time and thanks for sharing.

I'm JC. Just JC. Long time lurker. 1st time poster.

This is a picture of our lovely Lola. Beautiful North Carolina Plott Hound rescued by our Marine son-in-law while stationed at Kaneohe, and she ended up ours. Sweeter soul you will never find and great with our grands. A year ago her love of chasing the bunny's onto to the only road facing our property finally got the best of her, so she is sittin' on the Rainbow Bridge waiting for us. We miss her ALOT.


JC thanks for the submission. Our condolences on Lola's passing. She sounds and looks like she was a sweet dog. Dang rabbits.

9 On the way to pick up the Uhaul this morning we saw a beautiful huskey mix just wandering around close to the rental place (and very close to the highway). I thought it might have escaped from a nearby vet but they were closed. Seems the owner of a building nearby let him out to wander around. Dumb ass. My daughter was beside herself. Why would anyone do something so stupid?

10 What a sweet lineup this week. My condolences to those who have lost pets. My sister's sweet Lab Kona had to be put to sleep a few weeks ago and it has hit us all very hard, but the love they give is so worth it.

14 Oh, and Gizmo, she was a very beautiful cat.

Posted by: washrivergal at July 20, 2019 03:16 PM (9+jnX)

15 My first dog was a collie/shepherd mix named Duke. He was a good dog, but not particularly enamored with being in the house, so my father built a long run for him between a couple of trees.

Duke seemed to take this as a challenge, and within a day or two I walked outside to see him dashing full speed to the end of the run, where the lead ran out and the collar yanked him off his feet. He then got up and repeated it to the other end. I went in to tell my mom and as we went out to take him off the lead, there was a loud SNAP and then Duke went streaking by and off into the woods. He reappeared a few days later at our front door, fur matted and missing in a spot on his hind end. Mom let him in and he curled up in front of the fireplace and fell asleep.

My dad strengthened the collar and lead, but it just led Duke to try harder to free himself, and we eventually gave up and just let him out. The disappearances became longer and longer until Duke was gone so long we all assumed he was dead. He returned after nearly two months, spent a day or two with us and then bailed for good.

I still wonder whether Duke had another family somewhere nearby. Maybe he just lived in the woods? He was excellent at catching moles in our yard, so maybe he fed himself that way. He certainly wasn't above raiding the garbage.

RIP Duke, wherever you were and are.

16 Thanks, washrivergal. Gizmo had wonderfully soft kitty titties and kitty belly, and would allow us to approach and rub on occasion. Sure do miss that.

18 Condolences on the losses of Latte and Gizmo. 18 years is a beautifully long life for a puppeh. My granddog, still boarding here, is 16y and 4 months and we are definitely hoping for more, but we'll happily accept all the time we can get with him and his bossy woofy ways.

Clover is a pretty girl and the camper Bassets do indeed look like you wait on them. Wonderful pet morons, all!

I can't imagine my life without a dog. After the dog I acquired at age 20 passed away, I said it would be a long time before I got another. Seven days was a long time. I not only missed him but I woke up every morning and went through the days stopping myself from performing the rituals of pet care (opening doors, expecting the friendly bark when I got home, missing that pounce on the sofa, walking alone in the evening). So we have been a rapid replacement family. All of them were different, but they all structured the day, to some extent, in the same way.

A friend suggested maybe I was "disloyal" which I firmly shot down. It's a great tribute to them that I can't do without a doggeh or two in the house.

Posted by: CN at July 20, 2019 03:26 PM (U7k5w)

19 So long to Gizmo, Lola and Latté.

Clover's stance just cracks me up. That's the dog everyone at the park is gonna want to meet.

22 Great links and pix and stories glad and sad.

Going to re-run the shepherds and the flag pic on an ONT?

Speaking of Silence of the Hens...

Had a bag of trash which Daughter was going to take away for us, sitting on the front porch right by the door.

The door is open, with a fan blowing in it. Three of us sitting near the door. Cats going in and out.

Suddenly li'l black kitteh Ony was 'alerting' on something outside. Daughter gets up to check, looks out, and shouts, "NO! BAD RACCOON!"

It was a big one, she said. Pretty brazen. Only tore a couple of holes in the bags, no scattering, so easy to rebag the bag. And wash up thoroughly. Because, raccoon.

Another reason to miss our good ol' dog.

But, good kitty alerting us. Usually it's a frog or a skink.

23 One of our Garden Kitties, born in our neighbor's yard and never very cuddly, has appeared again the in neighborhood. Across the street.

Wonder if she'll come to visit? She has always been adventurous. Got a leg caught in a fence once. Lost an eye, too. Still a pretty cat.

24 9: We were Uhauling too! His majesty the granddog was supposed to be returning to DC today, but not one more thing could fit in that truck, much less puppeh and all his accoutrement. DC is hovering around 100 degrees today, so he's better off here where he can lay in front of a nice cool A/C vent!

25 We're in the middle of a heat wave here, and I keep thinking of the Noel Coward song: "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noonday sun." I'm thinking cats must be bonkers too-- I can coax my dude cat into the one area of the place with A/C (which struggles to keep up when the outside temp is above 90F), but his lady cat won't leave the hot kitchen, no way, nohow. I know cats evolved in Africa and presumably learned to take hot weather in stride, but just seeing Coco napping on the kitchen floor when I can't stay in the kitchen for longer than 5 minutes tops makes me wonder which species, human or feline, is crazier.

26 My 8 yr old Golden has wondered off. He is totally blind.

he's been gone for 4 days. Kinda given up hope.

Been walking the land but i have 40 acres and there are hundreds of acres around me, wooded forest.

There is a river that runs through it all and he was kinda fat.

Its just killing me to think hes out there alone, maybe just a few hundred yard away.

walked about 2 miles in the river yesterday, just about killed this old man

42 @38 Yeah...our Lena(German shep) only spends a few minutes on essential and two stick chases. That's enough at 112 heat index. She comes in and plops herself down on the 'dog' sofa which has a heavy duty air-conditioner pointed right at it. Winter is easier on her than this heat.

43 Anonosaurus Wrecks, how old is Charlie?

My standard poodle can still be nippy when he's excited, specially around strangers, though it's gotten better. He's two.

When I say nippy he doesn't actually nip though - it's just that he has his mouth open and his teeth are real pointy.

45 I can't imagine how awful it must be for any creature covered in fur.

Feels like 105 here. I spent some time last night brushing and combing the cats to get as much loose fur off as possible. They're domestic shorthairs, but I still collected almost enough fur to stuff a baseball. The other thing that helps is to wipe them down with a damp paper towel. Cats don't like to be bathed, but a small amount of water on their fur does seem to make them feel better. As for keeping them hydrated, they have a pet fountain that runs constantly as well as several water bowls scattered around.

And prayers for Redacted.

This idiot is trying to make a fast buck by calling female aestethicians and asking if they will wax his balls. He's trying especially hard with women whose religions do not allow them to be alone with men, and especially not to handle their meat and two veg.

He's a creep and a pervert, but maybe even worse, he's a huckster.

If there are any Search & Rescue groups in your area, you can explain the situation. I am not an S&R, but I read a book written by a women who trains search dogs & she mentioned that they do lots of drill with the pups including 'created situations'.

I think they'd treat a real situation with professionalism ...

Like Adriane said above, a search and rescue team would probably welcome the opportunity to sharpen the skills of their dogs. You don't have to traipse through the woods with a borrowed dog.

Your local Sheriff's office should have numbers for some search dog folks.

Pic of the dog and the certificate made me laugh hard, I went through half a course of obedience training with Lizzie, my Lab of 9 years fighting her to behave until one night I just said hell with it and let her visit everyone there (there was only 8 or 9 people that night) and it was a different dog after.

Turned out all she wanted was to say hello. We did the meet and greet--just a quick sniff/lick and you never saw such a well behaved animal who ultimately got the award for most improved dog.
To this day, she will look to me for permission to "go see", if I don't allow it she walks away from me, looks back and lies down with her back to me.

This idiot is trying to make a fast buck by calling female aestethicians and asking if they will wax his balls. He's trying especially hard with women whose religions do not allow them to be alone with men, and especially not to handle their meat and two veg.

Molly did okay at the vet (after screaming and pooping for the two-minute ride) getting her rabies shot and nails trimmed. Has eye issues we will have to address (something growing in them, same material as nails and hair, I think?), but otherwise fine for a year-old pug

Haggrid, our fat gray cat, is also still well.

Abigail, our black-and-white cat, crossed the rainbow bridge a week ago yesterday, where I know she waits for us, playing with other pets.

He talked about a heat wave in 1901 that killed 10,000 people. I missed the beginning so I don't know if that was in a certain region or nationwide.

But he did say that in New York City, about 250 horses collapsed and died in the street.
