Ace of Spades Pet Thread

catpetthreadpicture.jpg


Welcome to the almost world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread, where pets are MoronPets. Time to kick back, relax and enjoy the world of animals.

*****

A Little of This. A Little of That.


Cute puppeh fails. From police dog to greeter.


Need a smile? These photos should make you smile.


Leave it to "Man" to screw up a dog's last days. Why buy the cow when you're getting the milk for free?
Lighten up, it's a joke.


Watch dog? Well sort of.


This little kitteh probably made some people upset. Until you see the little cutie.

Headed to Tennessee? You might want to check this out.

Meet The PetMorons


jaspar.jpg

This Moron was so happy to share his dog's photo with us he forgot to give us his name.

This is Jasper, a Turkish Akbash dog. Usually mistaken for a Great Pyrenees, these are taller, heavier, smarter, and - I almost forgot - they shed CONSTANTLY and eat EVERYTHING (notice the spoon). Terrible choice for apartments, houses with small yards, owners with low energy, or people who own coyotes. If you love to be stalked by your "pet" this is the dog for you. Best breed ever.

buddy.jpg

Lurker "Oxrock." This is Paul Bear Bryant (aka Buddy Dog) who lived a relatively long life for a large dark golden retriever.

RIP Buddy, April 20, 2005 to May 20, 2017.

Sorry for your loss Oxrock.

LASue and her dog have quite a sense of humor.

Also known as Eddie Spaghetti, Eduardo, and Crazy Eyes Ed!
We adore him and hope Coach Herman will add him to the roster this year.

Farmer submitted these 2 photos of his Labs. Here is their story.

Hi,

We made the front page of the local rag when they did an article on the local dog park. First pic is of Bailey, our 7 yo lab. You can cut off our heads if you do photoshop. LOL. Or not.

Below is Kahlua, our 2 yo chocolate lab. She is a retriever pyscho. Insanely loves her ball.

Love the pet thread,

TY

Farmer

YW Farmer.

rosiecat.jpg

Howdy! I've been promising to send my Rosie pic since my Romeo passed (you showcased Romeo in August, right before he passed. He was my constant couch companion and guardian during my chemo. I miss him very much, and sometimes feel quite vulnerable).

Rosie is ten years old and has cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological disorder she was born with. Her cerebellum never developed in the womb, so she has very little balance. They're called, "CH Kitties" or "Wobble Kitties". She can only jump about 8inches (we have several doggie steps all around so she can get onto couches, into bed, etc.)

Rosie has tried to take up Romeo's guardian mantle and lays with me on the couch before and after my chemo treatment. She's learning. I am grateful and blessed.

Here she is in early May, guarding my foot, which is encased in a threatening, brightly colored slipper: Ritabootoo

Thanks for sharing, she's an impressive guard cat.

dog and cat.jpg

Quite the pair, better than oil & water.

Longtime lurker here, posted a few times as Rudytbone.

Pictured are Dennis, a Red Tiger domestic American shorthair (yes, a barn cat rescue) and Hopper, an Anatolian Shepherd (also a rescue). They are the best of friends.

*****


lynn.jpg

Longtime lurker here. These are my two lazy girls. I adopted them both from a rescue group. The gray and white shi-Tzu is Roxy. She is 9 years old and I've had her about 4 years. The black terrier mix is Paisley. She is around 2 years old and I have had her for 3 months. When I got Paisley, I was worried they might not get along. As you can see my fear has been realized. Love the site, keep up the good work.

Lynn, a NC deplorable

What a wonderful group of animals!!! Thank you folks for taking the time and submitting the photos. Thank your pets for us as well for posing.

Do you have something you wish to share? Photos, stories, tips? You can send them to us here at petmorons at gmail dot com.

Here's hoping you and your pets have a wonderful weekend!!!

25 Our breeder is texting us pics of the pups, daily. The litter of six girls, one boy, were born early yesterday. We're first in line for a girl.

Belgian sheepdogs. The Groenendahl. Long rough coat, like a collie, but all black. The Malenoix bomb- and drug-sniffers are close cousins.

26 Saw what I think was a coyote last night, while returning from spending the evening with my parents.

That's all I got pet-wise. Nothing in my house, apart from me, with fewer than six legs. Could do without those critters...

27 A pet owner shared video of a cinephile bulldog showing her protective nature by trying to warn characters in a horror movie of impending danger.

Sorry for your loss oxrock.

LA Sue, your dog is precious and made me smile.

Farmer, your labs are beautiful. They are such good dogs.

Jasper, what a dog. I can't imagine how big he must be if he's larger than a great pyronees (sp?).

Rosie looks like a queen.

What a nice pair Dennis and Hopper are.

Roxy and Paisley look so abused, you need to treat them better.

30 Another fine group of moron pets!
I am noticing more and more that pet photos are of those who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
Please do consider adopting or rescuing a pet from the shelter.
If you do that, you do 2 kindnesses, one for yourself and one for the pet.
Your deceased pet would certainly not object.

35 My smaller cat Reagan is still hurt. She knocked over the fireplace screen in the night. Lame right rear foot. She let me touch and move her leg/hip/foot right after it happened.

The next day her foot was badly swollen. Got her into the vet the next day, soft tissue injury.

They gave her anti inflammatory/pain meds.

She won't use the foot yet. She's still hopping on 3 legs. The swelling looks much better. She's using the scratching post so that's good. They want me to try to keep her off of her foot but I don't know how to do that. I keep carrying her when I see where she's trying to go.

I feel so sorry for her.

36 Nice pets.

Those who recall Leo the border collie pup from a couple of weeks ago? And noticing he was pretty sizeable? Well, he is 5 weeks older now than in that picture, and a good bit bigger. He is growing like a weed. In vet appointments 4 weeks apart, he gained 6 pounds.

When WeaselCat v2 has had surgeries and needed to be kept quiet, we have confined her to the shower in our master bathroom. It has a glass door so she can see out and is just big enough for a littler box and food/water bowls and little cat bed. She hates it but can't get into any trouble in there.

49 The groenendahl is an awesome herding dog. All of the sheep farmers around me use them (no fences). The way the dogs work together to keep the sheep in one place, and to keep away any threats is incredible. They respond to low whistles and hand gestures. And the shepherds all wear the traditional hats, cloaks, and crooks.

That's the breed we'd love to get, but the ones here (next to Belgium) require a lot of training to be pets rather than working dogs.

Cecil, one of my feline overlords, went through a lot of sneezing and weird coughing in the last few weeks. I finally started keeping a food diary, thinking he might have become allergic to one of the canned foods. But, he seems fine now. Just lasted longer than I thought it should. And he is strictly an indoor cat.

I have a kennel I could put her in but I don't want to traumatize her. She's just basically moving from the screened porch to the window seat in the living room.

When it cools off in the evening, she's gets restless. I guess that's a good sign. She also wants to be wherever I am.

Not so sure about that. Cats are individualists by nature, dogs are pack animals.

Both, in their domesticated form, are essentially dependent on their owners and give very little tangible benefit in return. The exceptions are barn cats and real working dogs, neither of which are very common these days.

81 71 Thanks Caligirl. Sadly they barely last a week and this year it didn't bloom nearly as much as past years. It was still pretty though. I am going to divide it and plant a few sections on the side of my deck.

What do you use to move it? I have a small flowering cactus in a pot that I started transplants from. I used a welding glove to grab them and just shoved them in another pot.

Very carefully?

83 Love the labs Farmer.
I missed out on a great one when I had to give up my black lab, Buck.
Pointing lab. 1 1/2 yrs old and just coming into his own in the fields.
Already great on the ducks and geese.
His very first winged goose went down about 40 yds out. It started running. I sent him to fetch it up. He ran right past the dead goose and after the winged one.
At about 15 yds the goose turned, spread it's wings, stretched it's neck and hissed at Buck.
Ignored. He hit that bird like Derrick Thomas hitting a qb on a blind side blitz. They rolled and he stood up with a mouth full of neck.
Only 9 mo old at that time.

88 Hard to make cats do what they don't want to - they're libertarian in that sense. They get annoyed if you hang out with them too long.

I'm just recalling a cat I had that seemed very ... entitled and demanding at times. Didn't really seem to appreciate me. In that I think they're like Democrats.

My cats are indoor cats. They will not tolerate a collar. I would only use a break away type collar.

Posted by: CaliGirl at June 17, 2017 04:34 PM (Ri/rl)

94 My dog will do a 30 minute song and dance routine for a treat. Does every trick she's ever been taught, then several she doesn't know. Would probably write a term paper, shovel the driveway, and do the ironing if she had opposable thumbs.

I get the treats out after all that and the cat shows up for his. I call him Bernie when he does that. He also wants free college.

Posted by: dagny at June 17, 2017 04:35 PM (OdHXU)

95 Mine insist on collars. If you take the collars off for something, they act like they are naked and shiver and try to hide. For mine, I guess it is similar. I don't like that my kids like them to have matching collars (this year is red), it just seems goofy -- like dressing them up in costume (which they will not tolerate).

He's indoor too, mostly because traffic and he'd win any battle he got into with the declawed cat-lady cats next door. He's enormous. Sometimes he gets out. Won't leave the yard, though, but I'm afraid that he would eventually.
He can defeat a break away collar in 2 minutes. So, nothing? That's what I've been doing. He also has a neck like a linebacker. He's not fat.

Posted by: dagny at June 17, 2017 04:38 PM (OdHXU)

lmao!! Yes!! Can't tell you how many times I have picked those tiny barbs out of my hands or arms. I finally found a good pair of gloves and yeah you just have to be super careful and patient. I will use a shovel and just lop off two big pieces and place them in a shallow groove in the soil. Prop them up with a couple of rocks so they don't fall over and they will eventually root, although cactus don't have much of a root system.

Posted by: DeplorableJewells45 at June 17, 2017 04:39 PM (CNHr1)

99 Yes. Runs in my family, Grandmother,mom, my brother,myself and my son. Won't kill us (mostly). progressively worse. In my family it is a 50/50 shot of having the bad gene. I use a walker/chair/stumble around, my mom and son are mobile (but clumsy) my brother is in a power chair. Grandmother passed from complications 10 or so years ago.

100 79 She'll love the pontoon boat! Might make her a little nervous at first, but since it doesn't have to come up on plane like a speed boat she'll get used to it.

Oh, we got one so we could let him out back, he loves the grass. Took the entire family an hour to get it on him and he wiggled out eventually even though it wasn't loose. Haven't tried it again, it's hanging on the peg board in the basement. He's nice just not, um, going to put up with anything that offends his dignity.

She's an old fat beast, couldn't catch me. Besides, she's afraid of me, pesters my poor husband and sons though about silly shit. Literally waddles inside if I come out.

121 My previous cat (5 lbs) was very standoffish and a mighty hunter. The neighbors missed her when she died because she would bring a mouse to her favorite neighbors and they would give her treats. She would not cuddle, but would sit next to me and talk and purr and try to eat my books. When I am attempting to deal with my very cuddly and affectionate current cat, I am always somewhat at a loss. Cat people assure me that cats sit in laps and sleep on your chest and stuff like that. As much as I adore the current cat beast, I still like the companion type that just sits next to you and keeps you company.

123 Why do dogs smell so much worse than cats? Is it just that cats self groom? Or is it there some chemical difference in dog sweat/dander? I'd be more inclined to own dogs if they didn't smell as bad as they do. It's moot anyway, as my landlord does not allow pets.

When you get a more pet-friendly landlord, you might want to check out a Basenji or Basenji mix. They don't have a doggeh smell, and they groom themselves like cats.

Everyone who commented so positively about my Rosie, thank you from the bottom of my heart. She is beautiful. But all animals are beautiful, in their own way. Even a kinkajou.(Don't ask me how I know)
