Hmmmm...should this pic be on the pet thread or the gardening thread? My poochie Stella is enjoying impersonating a flower with her candy corn-colored autumn donut. It's really a flotation device for summer swimming pool fun that was marked down at the grocery store to $3. It's hard to find big toys for big dogs so I have to get creative. She loves to get a good trip on this thing and shake it and drag it around. Hopefully it'll last until Halloween! - JuJuBee


Adorable and a great photo for the Pet Thread. Is the autumn donut still in one piece or has it been disposed of properly in the correct bin? Thanks for sharing JuJuBee.

Aelishdad here, lurker extraordinaire. Behold the grandsons dog, Lucky, that I somehow am responsible for. Got from county shelter about 5 years ago, he came in with two smaller females, one of which was the boss dog. He is NOT spoiled! According to the Grammie. Does he look spoiled to you? Didn't think so. So I walk him, feed him, semi-train hm and pay his medical and boarding fees...and he sleeps with the Grammie. Yeah, a hard life indeed. And he protects us from the deer, bunnies and chipmunks, and toads.

Quite the granddog you have there Aelishdad. I think I can safely say that the Horde is happy that he protects you from those villains you mentioned. Thanks so much for sharing.

Hi!
I've been a moron for many years! Mostly lurking tho. Hard to converse with 700+ comments per thread, lolz!

Here is my Miss Moo-kitty, age 19 this past August. A friend had her since she was tiny, but had to find her and 2 others a new home 4 years ago. She's an 'only cat' and sacred of everything (except thunder) but full of love and purrsonality.

Cheers!
5Cats (& Moo)

A happy belated birth day to Miss Moo-kitty. It sounds like she found quite the home with you. As an "only cat" I suspect she is quite spoiled.

Hello Mis Hum,

I'm a longtime fan of AOSHQ and of the Pet Thread in particular. Really looking forward to reading it every weekend. Today I felt it was about time to present our dog: Abby, a German Pinscher, 4.5 years old now. We have her here since early 2018.
Abby loves running, digging and playing at the beach. Small problem is that she likes to roll in washed up things. So I have to wash her thoroughly once in a while... Like today.
She is a good and friendly dog and always comes back to me when I call her. Only not when busy rolling. Here you see her running down the sea-wall. I cannot make her more happy then going here. And that makes me happy too!

All the best from The Netherlands, - Scarface

The Netherlands? Well we are almost world famous! Hey, thanks for sending in Abby's photo and story. She seems to enjoy the great outdoors. The Horde understands the pleasure that a pet brings. Thanks so much for sharing.

Here's my younger rescue cat, Quicksilver.?? She was a stray or feral kitten who was living around an abandoned service station, and was surprisingly approachable after a week or less of my feeding her.?? But then I lost track of her for several months and presumed that she was dead.?? When I located her again, she was so infested with intestinal worms that straining to go to the bathroom had caused her to prolapse.
I managed to capture her and take her to a local vet on the eve of a November cold front that sent temperatures into the low 20's.?? The veterinarian was able to mend her injuries, but told me that if 'Quickie' continued to live outside, she would soon be suffering from worms and prolapse again.??
Since I already had an 11-year-old indoor cat I'd rescued as a kitten, and since Quicksilver apparently had been living on the streets for most or all of her life, I was more than a little worried about what I was getting myself into.?? And she struggled with irregularity and illness for 5-6 weeks, and had several more multi-night stays at the vet clinic.?? But since January she has done remarkably well, including post-spaying.???? And my older cat has learned to, well, tolerate her.?? I love my new little nitwit. - David


What an adorable little kitteh. And what a wonderful heart you have to take in little Quickie. Sounds like everything is working out wonderfully at your home.

My parents travel a lot, and attached are the LUDICROUS instructions YD, Sr. leaves in his opulent kitchen for us kids to follow.

THIS IS HOW THIS DOG EATS EVERY DAY.

It's completely bananas, and I can't stop laughing every time I read them. I joke to him that his inclusion of the kibble is purely for his own benefit, so that he can pretend what he's making is dog food, and not a multi-course meal for humans.

Also, in the last line, you can note his relative disregard for the cat. - Yudhishthira's Dice

I know you have a great sense of humor on The ONT. Not sure if you're pulling our leg or not with this. Wonderful directions nevertheless.

My second submission to Pet Morons. This is cullypants,
I have no idea where that name came from, Daughter #2
named him. He’s 14 months old and weighs 50-55 lbs.
He is part Mastiff, part Pitbull and part Corgi, his family
tree is ..... let’s just say ...... rather intriguing.

In this picture he is playing his most favoritest game in
the world - TUG-O-WAR. He’s a powerful puppy and has
pulled me off my feet. What you can’t see in the picture
is his “200 mile per hour tail.” He is one of the happiest
dogs I have seen. - Christopher

Quite the family tree. We won't ask. You don't have to tell. Isn't that a great thing about a puppy, there tail wagging 200 MPH? Cullypants is an unusual and unique name. Thank you for sharing.

Hi, long time reader, but not commenter. Love the pet thread and thought I would share this cherished photo.

It shows our old gal Lucy (center) surrounded by her friends Rio (to her left) and Jazz (to her right) and, if you look closely, Mr. Kitty in the bookcase in the back. You can almost imagine each pet’s role in this “gang” by the way they hold themselves. Sadly, they’ve all passed by now, with Mr. Kitty outlasting them all and making it to 21.
Cheers,
Double Deg

We appreciate you being a long time reader. What a great group setting! I bet it is a cherished photo. So sorry to hear that they have all passed over the Rainbow Bridge. Never an easy thing to share. Thank you.

23 We lost our two dogs - a German Shepherd and Australian Shepherd several years ago. Their loss has been really hard to live with. My wife an I could bear to get more dogs since then. Our oldest son broke up with his girlfriend and moved back in with us - yippee. He got custody of the dog - a one year old Bernese Mountain Dog. He and my wife have really hit it off! My wife suffers from fibromyalgia but the dog has helped to bring her out of her shell. Dogs are great as healing forces in our lives.

28 Stunning pet morons!

I give my pooch fish oil and glucosamine too, and the feeding instructions seem pretty good to me, except the sausage sounds like a fatty way to go with a puppeh.

Speaking of glucosamine chondroitin for dogs, does anyone have experience with beef tracheas? Should be an excellent source but due to the proximity on the thyroid, I am concerned about some ending up in the product and puppeh getting it and having some arrhythmias. Let me know

31 Old Dog, New Old Dog, and Old Cat stayed at home by themselves for 12 hours last Saturday while daughter and I attended son's wedding. (Wedding was lovely, pretty informal but I was instructed no flannel shirts.)

Had everything set for New Old Dog to board overnight, Old Dog to stay at son's house, and Old Cat by himself with the bathroom faucet running on a trickle.

Costs! Goodness gracious, over $200 for shots for boarding plus boarding fees, hotel room, and all the rest made the decision for us that we would just make it a day trip.

The Old Boys did well, although the pileon for bedtime was rather dramatic -- even though they knew we would be back -- they were happy we were home where we belonged.

34 The story of the dying veteran being able to say goodbye to his dog was touching and sad. Were it me, and I had no family able to take in my dog, I think I would like to know my pup was adopted into a nice home. Knowing your furry friend will be safe would be a relief.

36 2yo grandkids were a hoot: girlkid was trying to hug and kiss boykid, boykid did not appreciate the affection from her. He growled, just like all dogs should when confronted by an overaffectionate girl. I was laughing so hard I could barely separate them -- you can sure tell that both have big dogs who when they have had enough, the kids are chastised by both the grownups and the dogs.

Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice at October 26, 2019 04:03 PM (Su6wb)

40 On a doggie note, one of the stories I have read to my grandsons is "The Puppy who wanted a Boy" about a pup who wanted a boy for Christmas. No dog will give up his boy, but the persistent pup eventually finds a home at an orphanage and gets 50 boys of his own. It is a happy ending for the pup, but it makes you feel that dogs are more loyal to us than we are to each other. Seems the doggies were less likely than the families to give up their child. Sad when you think of it that way, and fortunately the grandsons only focus on the doggie's joy.

Apparently beef tracheas (windpipes) are a new thing for dogs and due to the large amount of cartilage in the tracheal rings, natural types tout them as a good source of nutrients. The thyroid gland sits in the neck and I have heard that some thyroid can be present on these beef tracheas. Too much thyroid hormone can negatively affect the heart rate.

I'm sure the cat would be more finicky if the old man treated him like a fifth offspring. Which is basically how the dog is viewed.

I do love the dog too.

54 A vet in our regular group tried to get us to give New Old Dog green beans for really bad corpse breath. New Old Dog won't eat them. Old Dog will eat leftover veggies if they have butter. The only snacks I can give grandkids in the living room are apples and dill pickles. Both dogs spit those out so now they don't even both begging or stealing those.

About two years. He started having some joint stiffness and I added this and some fish oil. I did a loading dose for a few weeks and now give the recommended daily amount.

I m gur banned me from public posts because of my memes. That's fine because I only post them for the Horde, with direct links anyhow. But I just went to post a photo of the adorable Winston, and they banned me altogether!

And I've never even ripped on a Dem. Only cucks, because I hate 'em extra very much.

68 59: I have been pleased. I'm not sure if the fish oil or the glucosamine chondroitin is giving the response, but he (he's between 12 and 14) is much more comfortable and resumed nice walks about 6 weeks after starting. I take these for my own arthritis and I am a fan, so I thought I'd give it a go. The vet was on board as well, which always helps.

I was thinking of the beef tracheas because of the response, and thought that a natural source might be potent.

I have considered chicken feet, but am not sure how to prepare these. I am not crazy about raw foods or bones, especially chicken, but would strongly consider a broth of some sort or a desiccated version

74 Kitteh of Color sitting atop pumpkin looks like my Cat#2. Especially if it has bald spot above tail, which I can't see in pic.

Good grief-- the cat shelter I volunteer with plus most of the vets I know warn folks with black cats to 1) keep them inside on Halloween and 2) never give away any pet to strangers "for free."

77 Skip, we stopped carving pumpkins years ago. Youngest is really 29 yo.

Basement Cat, we always read about black cats around Halloween being, but I wonder if there is hard evidence or is it all anecdotal/historical.

I think it's mostly B$. I did read some decades back about a group in New England that was "sacrificing" black cats but that was quite some time ago and I am not sure it was even true.

We still do it every year. It's a thing I guess. 38 and 35 year old.. they freaking love Halloween. Doing it tomorrow as a matter of fact. Daughter bought a costume for Moose but he's having none of it.

81 I've been awakened by an incoming cat using my stomach for a landing strip more than once.

Posted by: Basement Cat at October 26, 2019 04:43

I'm awakened most mornings by Cat#1 using my face and/or clavicle as a scratching post. I now sleep with thick terry cloth hand towel next to me to protect myself.

lol.. my moms cat used to come up to her face in the morning and gently nip her cheek. Time for breakfast. Poor mom.. never could move fast enough so the gentle nip sometimes turned into a bite. Never broke the skin though. Wonder what ever happened to her. She was a sweet kitty.

Oh, we love Halloween too Jewells. Always been wife's favorite. However, we transitioned from carving pumpkins to making Haunted Gingerbread houses. They're ugly as shit. Much fun doing. Especially if drinking is involved.

Left your Italicans wide open.

98 I tried to grow a pumpkin in garden last year or two just to carve but never got a pumpkin on the plants

Posted by: Skip at October 26, 2019 05:21 PM (ZCEU2)

99 lol.. skip, one year I took one of our carved pumpkins to work with the intention of throwing it in the dumpster. I left it outside the front door then it turned bitter cold and I never retrieved it. Sat out there all winter. Come spring it started sprouting vines that went all the way out to the parking lot. I thought..cool! Maybe it will make more pumpkins. Then my boss picked it up and threw it away. He's such an asshole.

101 awesome pet thread, as always,

I love the pics of the dogs catching frisbees, but a more realistic pic ( at least for us) would be the dog missing the frisbee, and then falling arse over end because he tried to turn but had too much forward momentum.

104 You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the work you write.
The sector hopes for even more passionate writers
such as you who aren't afraid to say how they believe.

Always follow your heart.
