Good afternoon and welcome to the New Year and the almost world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread. Put the party favors down and enjoy the world of animals.

***


I've had some relaxed dogs over the years. This is probably the most outlandish. Every dog sleeps differently.


***


My fellow man no longer surprises me when it comes to pets.

From our friend bluebell. She found this. Keep CBD away from them. Ducks.

Gardening Cob KT also has an eye for pets. So you want an owl for a pet.

This was my son's 7 yr old beagle Ruger who passed on suddenly to Piddler's Green on Christmas Eve. He was a sweet mischievous pup who was dearly loved for every day of his too short life. - No name provided

Oh Gosh, so sorry to hear of Ruger's unexpected passing. 7 is so young. Knowing he was Beagle no doubt he loved life and all those around him. Please pass our condolences to your son.

This is Magnificent Max addressing the household.


Max recently had his first birthday, he's had a rough year with congenital heart issues and heartworm. His most recent tests finally show the worms are clearing out and if he can survive that he has a much better chance.

He recently allowed me to pet him briefly for the first time so I think he's feeling better. We have our fingers crossed.

Happy New Year! - John

Thanks for sharing this wonderful photo. I love the caption. Good luck to Max on his recovery. Happy and healthy New Year to Max and you.

It looks like everyone was busy with the Holidays. The In-Box was pretty quiet this past week.

If you have something you wish to share on the Pet Thread you can contact us at petmorons at gmail dot com.

Happy New Year.

Have a great week!

13 Fur friends are the best friends.

Lucy was not pleased when I got home from San Diego. Well, she was happy to see me for about three minutes. Then I got the cold shoulder. Then I got a scratch on the nose. A good one too.

14 Sorry for the loss of Ruger.

My Rusty seems stronger these days, but is still on a lot (4) different medications. I am enjoying our walks and letting him determine the frequency and distance. I think it's helping. I'll find out when he has his next echo.

16 Nurse, sounds like Lucy does not like to be ignored!

Leo pouts after he gets his meds. But it only lasts for a little while. Then he likes me again. The treat probably helps

They are indeed. Which seems to be a common thing among Moron-owned pets, except maybe some who'd been abused and are newly adopted by one of us.

Gee, who'd'a thunk it -- Deplorables are good and loving pet owners!

26 Making a batch of homemade dog food. Ground turkey, shredded carrots, spinach, green beans, peas, parsley, and ditalini. Doggie couldn't take dog food any more, not even the ones designed for gastrointestinal issues. So we went with homemade. She loves it. Have to give a calcium supplement, and vitamin E.

33 We had a family dog, Chesapeake Bay Retrieve,r who liked to go for car rides. She rarely got any though because she'd bark so loud at any passed bicyclists or dogs in yards. Especially the cyclists, Boy did she think she needed to give her loudest bark when she saw one.

Since I've been taking Paisley for rides she gets upset when I go out without her.
I'm sure she'll complain when I go to church tomorrow. I know she's a good Christian dog but sadly I can't take her to church.

36 Took the pups to the woods yesterday. Good thing because we caught a break in the rain. We could go out tomorrow if it's not too bad.

I have the leads on a standing hat rack. But the dogs wait to see if I grab my glasses and hat, before they head for the front door.

37 I once puppysat my BF's beagle for a wknd. Put him downstairs and put up child fence at top of stairs. He scaled it. Came upstairs and peed on wife's purse. Wife wasn't amused.

41 Hey everybody. Hey MisHum! Hey Pet Thread!

(about to shock our cob by staying on topic...)

My niece's latest pet is a little white fuzzy thing named Ruby. She traveled with her mom all the way to Hemet to get him. He's cute as all get-out but has a really annoying habit of peeing wherever his little heart desires. He's also been staring at me quite a bit lately.

43 Our cat Anko-chan doesn't like Christmas. I leave for a few days, CPT Charles visits his family that day, and she's home alone, in the dark and cold. She likes the dark & cold winter days when we're home and she has someone to cuddle with/sit alongside.

Posted by: exdem13 at January 02, 2021 04:10 PM (W+kMI)

44 I do get "Merry Christmas from the cat" cards for my parents and sign them "from Anko & the staff". It makes them laugh each time.

Sounds like Joe at Shep's. He's a Rotti mix and can piss a river. I had a nice mess to clean up when I showed up today. The pee pads caught most of it but the big giant dump he took was right in the middle of the living room. *sigh*

DaughterH is convinced that dogs have no real sense of time, and I think she is partially right in that any interval up to about 8 hours is essentially nap time. Much longer that that, they start to expect you, and food, to appear!

57 When I dog-sit my son's Lab he always knows it's mealtime. He gets fed promptly at 7a.m. and 7p.m. He makes you keenly aware of what time it is by the minute. It is uncanny. It is almost like he can read the clock.

I disagree, if it's getting close to dinner time...my dog will let you know she's hungry. She usually eats after we do but sometimes we put our dinner off until much later. If dinner time goes by she'll start getting annoying...

However, they regard any time I go out the door as "going to work" and if I come back that means it must be dinner time! No, they are not food motivated, why do you ask?

We had three labs. They all tended to hang out in different parts of the house if they weren't playing together. Feeding time was 4 PM. They would begin to assemble around 3:50 and stand and stare at my wife (or me if she was gone).

66 Great petmorons! If ever your pet is diagnosed with Cushings Disease, be not afraid. With drug management, a good life can be had. Prince was diagnosed when he was 13 (a guess because a senior rescue). 3 years later he is doing better than expected.

68 We've always been able to feed the dogs and cats free choice so they don't have that "Its dinner time and I'll STARVE if I don't get fed right now"

My distance riding org has speakers every year at convention and my favorite one said "The best way to have horses that can handle the disruptions of hauling to and doing rides is to be consistently inconsistent" Since my life is chaos I loved hearing that the chaos was actually useful for something.

71 Fox Xmas Miss Linda gave me a small pet bed for the cats. they have shown as much interest in it as they have the water fountain she also gave me last month, i.e., zilch. I have to correct that: The pet bed has seen them sit partly on it, and Chekov D. Siberian curled up in it one evening this week.

I've tried sprinkling some catnip in it. That's the only reason they've gone near it.

A little light on the submissions, this week, that's understandable. Still a bunch of adorables.
The passing of a pet is a great sadness.
That is because pets are like a coin. One side has joy and love, the other side has pain and sadness.

Marie-Antoinette the smart black cat would greet me with a standard "feed me!" meow every evening when I came home. Then I went on a 4-day business trip, leaving her to be cared for by a reliable neighbor. When I stepped in the door, she stared at me, and gave out with a loud "Where've you BEEEEEN?" meow that I remember to this day. So I think she was aware that this disappearance of mine was longer than usual.

My dog is like that with breakfast - at 7am on the dot he'll hop up, do a head shake and then stare at me as if to say "Shouldn't you be doing something right now?"

I read that dogs can tell time via smell? Same thing with guaging how long you've been gone from home (your smell dissipates over time). Forget where I read that. . .

91 I'd love a puppy to help fill the huge hole our black lab Liz left but my ginger has said she isn't ready for a dog. Don't know if this is temporary or permanent with her--I DO know it's a shitty way to start a new year.

I'd never arbitrarily get another dog because I love her too much so it seems that I get to deal with the present situation. Not a bit of fun.

99 Most of my cats have been fairly polite about breakfast/dinner time. Marie A. was the only one who was vocally demanding. Usually mine, including the current two, sit and look at me with that steady "Well? Well?" gaze.

Rusty, my red tabby as a boy, would coil back and forth between your ankles, and if you took a little too long to put the food down, would scrape a tooth along your ankle. A gentle reminder, nothing more.

She really does. She was a neat cat with lots of personality. She loved me to death, and could take or leave everyone else. She had a ton of very expressive vocalizations. She greeted me every morning with chatter and love, then went off to patrol the house or find a nice spot to nap.

Marie-Antoinette the smart black cat would greet me with a standard "feed me!" meow every evening when I came home. Then I went on a 4-day business trip, leaving her to be cared for by a reliable neighbor. When I stepped in the door, she stared at me, and gave out with a loud "Where've you BEEEEEN?" meow that I remember to this day. So I think she was aware that this disappearance of mine was longer than usual.

That is crazy. Cats aren't filter feeding animals or plants. Cats are predators and prey, they are aware of what is going on every moment and know what is normal and what is abnormal, because their life may depend on it.

That is why moving, even out of an awful place like the pound you adopt them from is stressful to a cat - they need to learn their new situation, and until they do they feel danger.

I used to watch him and likely it is to establish who is pack leader - if he pulls you in, or goes on his own he's a potential pack leader, if you enter and lead him in he's a follower. Walking also establishes the owner as pack leader, if you do it the right way. He was very big on pack dynamics - he used to introduce cats by telling the dogs they were pack leaders not things to chase. Small kids too.

You'd have to have that all in hand to safely own a big dog like a pit bull, i'd imaging. Cat dynamics are different, no strict leaders but more of a role leader dynamic.

A few virtues of the bathroom - easy for the cat to explore and 'own', hard for the cat to hide where you can't get at them, easy cleanup. For a true shy cat a bedroom where they can get 'under the bed' is too good a place to hide, you can't get at em to start bonding without a stressful chase.

161 I would adjust to a size change in a beloved dog. My Rusty is a lot more work with his medical issues, and I have managed. The enlarged heart, due to ehrlichiosis, makes him cough and sometimes quite a bit, but he's my darling pupper and that's that.

Chekov first dived into the bathtub, which was wet. I got him out of that and toweled him, but then he slid under the bed. I left him mostly alone, speaking to him, and several times a day he would come out and let me pet him -- but then would dive back under. Took a while before he came out and stayed. He'd never been anywhere but his home before.

163 My stepdog, Journey, was being fostered by my friend while he was being trained to be a service dog...a lovable black Lab, about 70 pounds and the biggest case of wigglebutt whenever he saw you. Anyone who got up from the sofa was assumed to be going to the kitchen to dispense a snack, so he'd follow, slowly wagging that billyclub of a tail. He and the French Bulldog were fed at 7am and 7pm and they knew to the minute when it was time.

164 Cartoon up-top reminds me of a cartoon I saw long ago:
Human figure setting down a dish of dog food, two dogs (one already eating, the other anxiously waiting for his dish to hit the floor), captioned "Ahh, the best 20 seconds of my whole day!"

165 Anyone that thinks animals can't tell time should deal with feeding them after the daylight time changes.

166 Ruger looks like a very sweet little pup. We have 2 doggies that are over 14 years old and one that is 7. All of them are currently laying at my wife's feet while she assembles a new puzzle.
We have a lab mix and 2 pit bulls. Rescue dogs. Older pit is undoubtedly the sweetest dog I've ever owned. I'd call him a big pussy but I've seen him eat an armadillo. Young pit is a good boy but a tad bit crazy. The lab mix is 140 lbs and I have to cover my crotch due to his violent tail wagging.
They continue to bring so much joy to us. Unconditional love. And sometimes destruction. Fair trade if you ask me.
