Here’s our pup adoptee Tilda now at 6 months.
She’s obstinate, selective hearing, restless and walking her is like dragging a 50lb bag of cement down the sidewalk. I will NEVER give this dog up! We love her.
Tilda at 6 months: Love Ace.mu.nu - P. Aaron

So, Tilda is a typical puppy? Congrats on your newest family member and good luck with raising her. Please keep us posted in the months to come.

Chloe (3 Sep 19).jpg

First is a bear from 2016 at Yellowtail Dam/Bighorn Lake in MT. Obviously not a pet, just like the photo if you want to use it. We were in a boat when the photo was taken and there is always a decent probability you can see a black bear back in the canyons along the shoreline.

Second is Chloe on a road trip to MT at a pitstop in Sheridan, WY. When the ex moved out we each got a pup. Probably for the best, she doesn’t like to share her toys. -Infrequent poster, lurker. MH-53J


So two animals that don't play well with others? Beautiful territory and really nice photos. Thanks for sharing today MH-53J

This is Bennett at age 15 weeks. He is a Bernese Mountain Dog that recently became a member of our family. He is a handful now but we hope to train him (and us) to be a therapy dog. - No name provided.

Puppeh!!! Just too cute! Who would have thought a 15 week old puppy would be a handful? I had no idea J/K. Thank you for your submission today.

Shawn 4 4 .jpg

I submitted a picture of Dallas a few months ago. This is her little cat sister Freckles. The ex-Mrs saw her in the road one rainy day as a kitten and pulled over to get her. Freckles ran under the car and when she tried to snatch her, she jammed her fingers into the red hot exhaust. She still somehow managed to grab Freckles despite a serious burn.

According to the vet, she had the worst ear mite problem they’d ever seen, but Freckles made a full recovery and here she is 10+ years later antagonizing the dog as she does on occasion. She’s still very slow to trust new people and although I rarely see her now, she still runs to greet me immediately when I do. Hopefully she has another 10+ years of laser pointers and randomly vomiting only on carpeted areas. - Shawn

Sorry to hear you don't get to see Freckles that often. Sounds like she hit life's jackpot when the ex found her. We hope she has lots of time left as well.

dexter 4 4.jpg

Hello, Mis Hum.

I am a lurker and thus do not have a creative handle, so you can just call me “SnowChick” if you need something. 😉

This is my little buddy, Dexter (so named because he was born under my deck). He was totally feral. The car pic is Dexter and his mommy about a week before we caught him with an animal friendly trap. We quarantined him for a time in the guest bedroom. The radiator pic is the first day of his capture. The video is exactly 5 days after his capture. This was the result of daily handling, love, and t-r-e-a-t-s.

Dexter was a little scraggly when we caught him. He was cross-eyed and had a terrible case of worms, but with proper care and some love, he has turned out quite well. Dare I say, he’s the best cat ever! He’s a true member of the family. He can be upstairs and if mommy and daddy are having a conversation downstairs, he’ll come downstairs, sit so as to make a triangle out of the three of us, and announce himself with a peep or meow. Let the meeting begin.

Love this spoiled kitty, now 8 years young!!


Thanks for the story and photo of Dexter. A happy ending for this handsome guy. Can't tell he is loved, not one bit. Thanks SnowChick.

stumpy 4 4.jpg

This is Stumpy (left) and Leo (right). Stumpy is a foster fail. We were fostering Stumpy, who appears to be a mix between a Dachshund and a Chihuahua, for our local animal shelter. He had a very bad case of heart worms. So we fostered him through his treatments. Turns out he’s the most laid back and lovable little guy so we ended up adopting him. Our poor animal shelter is so inadequate based on the size of our county. The good people there do stellar work but they have so little to work with. So we try to help them by fostering. My wife was at the animal shelter to do the official adoption paperwork for Stumpy when someone shows up with 16 Chihuahuas. Leo is one of those 16. We’re fostering him until gets adopted. He’s a very scared little guy but really became best friends with Stumpy. Wherever Stumpy goes, Leo follows. Just a friendly reminder to folks to please help your local animal shelter by fostering if you are able. - Andrew

What a heartwarming story Andrew. Also a very valuable lesson for treating your dogs monthly for heart worm. Awful disease that is completely preventable. Thanks for sharing today.

ThelmaDing (1).jpg

Greetings, Morons!
I'm mikesixes, and I mostly just lurk around here.

Here's a picture of our dogs rasslin' on the beach. The white one is
Thelma, the great pyrenees, and the black and tan is Dingo, a german
shepherd/border collie cross. We got Dingo as a pup in 2005, Thelma we
found on the side of the road in 2007 when she was about a year and a
half old. The 2 of them were bestest pals for 12 years, until Thelma
died suddenly last July 9. Dingo followed her about a month later, on
August 11. We miss them. We'll never get another pair like them.

Bummer, I hate a story with a sad ending. So sorry to hear of your pets passing. They certainly don't live long enough do they?


***

The In-box is still plenty full. So please be patient while we get to your pets. Every pet will have its day in the AoS Pet Thread spot light.

Thanks to all who contributed pet stories and the interesting pet links.

May you and your pets be safe this next week. Have a great week!!!!

A swell lot o' thieves! Thanks again, MisHum, for bringing the Pet Thread. To be a Moron Pet is to reach the highest level of pet existence.

March was a very hard month for us. We lost Leo to neurological problems, Carmen to cancer and Max to heart failure. The Good Lord blessed us with their time on earth, then called them back. Their spirit, beauty and love - the things that made them such wonderful companions - are not lost but live in heaven forever.

Bennett will not be staying 'little' for very long, I would guess. According to wiki 100-160lbs for a male. Why the vast span of the range, I wonder? Different bloodlines?

You should not throw out the idea of having a dog. They are wonderful.

35 Dottie, the 6-8 months puppy that found her way into our yard and quickly into our hearts is doing pretty well. She is a live wire, sometimes a bit of a terror but luckily we're in a neighborhood of 10 acre lots and the weather has been mostly nice so she can just be put outside to play in the puddles, with branches I've been pruning from the 25 or so trees and with Toby and the neighbors live wire 2-3 year old mini aussie who as always enjoyed coming over to play with Toby or him going over there.

44 Growing up, our cat (Chinchilla Persian, a very gorgeous kittuh) would come out of where ever she was and sit exactly in the middle of the room where we would be sitting so she'd be equal distance of my parents and me. Didn't want to leave any of us out from her glorious presence.

Huh. Lot of pit bull breeds out there. I was at my parents one night (outside smoking- don't tell them) and saw this lonely dog wandering down the street. It was around 3am. She was wagging her tail and was friendly as sin. Also emaciated to where you could count the ribs on her sides.

I am a soft touch so I went and got a bowl of my parents dog's food and put it outside for her. She scarfed it up in a couple minutes and just sat there, looking at me and wagging her tail.

Soft touch. It was a cold damp night, so I got her a blanket and led her into the back yard onto the porch. In the light, I think she was a pit bull mix. Red coat. Curled up on the blanket. I sat with her until dawn was breaking and I had to let my parent's know I had found a stray. I was in my 20's at this point, so it was an odd feeling.

Put up the flyers and set them out on the neighborhood signs. A family from the end of the street came and claimed her. Said they had just gotten her from a worthless uncle who neglected her. She went on her way. Never saw her again.

20 or so years later, I still remember that dog and how friendly she was. But reserved. Like she was still a dog, with all that entailed, but she was not sure about humans. I agree with her on that point.

But they have the personalities of Golden's, big, sweet and goofy.

They also have a fox terrier and they make quite a pair.

83 Since the HQ includes high-toned literary morons as well as smart military types, here's an amphibian video about the annual frog-jumping contest in Calaveras County, CA, which was inspired by one of Mark Twain's stories:

The humans who get the frogs to jump are called jockeys. The contest was first held in 1928.

Mrs. Peel, glad to hear you had no fracture. I was able to exercise with mine, but only at the little gym at my apartment complex -- weights and sit-ups, that sort of thing.

136 Q. Does there exist a type of person who thinks, "You know, I deeply appreciated the surreal uncanny valley nightmare documentary 'Cats', but you know what would make it better? If each and every terrifying vaguely-catlike homunculus in the film had a realistic computer-generated butthole too. It would really help me with the suspension of disbelief if I could see the buttholes, on the cats. People. Catpeople. This is a wholly normal thing to ask for and instead of hiding this shameful desire, I will announce to the world that I would like to see Cats: Now With Cat Buttholes On The Cats' Butts"?

Glad to see Jewells here, as I thought of her last night when I ordered my cat mask from Etsy. FWIW, morons who don't need a professional medical mask but feel they need something to cover nose and mouth can find dog- and cat-themed masks on Etsy. Even a couple horse-themed items for Ben Had. You can filter on the search bar for estimated delivery time as well as design. Some will ship in as little as 2 days, which makes a difference if you live around nosey parkers who like to report their neighbors for every little thing.

143 With dogs who don't want to walk or insist on being dragged, the solution is simple. Not easy, mind you, but simple.

Put just enough of a constant forward tug on the leash until the dog moves a little on its own. Slacken the leash immediately.

Keep this up -(could be five minutes, twenty minutes or an hour)- until the dog understands what you want. The forward tugging is released when the dog obeys what you are asking of it.

Do Not drag the dog or let-up on the pressure until the dog moves on its own.

Simple, not easy. This may take more time than you thought but patience pays-off.

The same methodology can be used for stairs. It is nice to have a partner in this instance because the dog could use a little push from the backside as an aid. If the dog immediately sits when you touch its rear-end, abandon the "backside nudge".

It is also useful for fearful dogs if they avoid certain areas or objects in controlled environments. (Not on the sidewalk with people, dogs and cars being the objects of fear.)

That is a similar but different methodology, altogether.

I've felt very well for the better part of this week, so I'm accomplishing things and getting a little computer fun-time in.

My Brother is here, so I am "at-ease" today and that feels pretty, pretty sweet!

I live in a blue city and I've seen peeps complain on NextDoor about neighbors who are virus vigilantes, even about harmless things like dog walking. And yeah, I expect rural folks are a lot more relaxed.
