Attached are cockapoodles Maddie (7, female) and Bruno (1, male). Wherever the human goes or what the human is doing, they are right there, staring. She who must be obeyed is the anchor in the photo. Although they don't shed hair on your clothes, a haircut is needed every few weeks. Maddie barks at everything in her vision, and her vision is very good - anyone know a cure for that? - Sputum

Cute pups. How about it Horde, safe & humane ideas for Maddie's barking issues?

This is The Countess Etta Hildegaard von Dusseldorf, Ruler of Upper Schnauzernia. She is far too intelligent for our own good and though she runs a largely benevolent dictatorship, it is a dictatorship nonetheless.

She despises all those who dare to encroach on the borders of her kingdom such as solicitors and political candidates who canvas for votes but her special ire is reserved for the sinister and underhanded representatives of the postal and parcel delivery industries.

Long may she reign and continue to grace her subjects to her most royal and rancid flatulence. - Lurker Hartmann

This is Franklin, a mostly English Creme, Golden Retriever. He is about a year and a half old and has not yet outgrown the urge to hump every other dog he sees.

He loves the water, clean or mucky and has become quite the kayaker. The harness helps me pull him back aboard.

The video is us on the family farm. He loves to run around the fields. Franklin on the farm.

He has a few neighborhood friends, but his favorite is his rifle range friend Merlin, who is a bit smaller, faster and more well-behaved. They both get disappointed if they go to the range and the other is not there.

Orson here....owner of Tucker. He was a rescue at six months old, had been found under a bridge in Athol, Idaho. He was a husky/heeler mix, very friendly especially with kids, got along great with cats, was quiet except for his “someone’s here” bark, which sounded like he was sure the world was going to end. Good Rocky Mountain dog, once chased a bear off the trail for us. We miss him every day. He had really pointy ears which you can’t see because he’s got them folded down. down. Thanx so much, you don’t know how it made my day seeing his picture on my favorite site. Rock on.


Last week Orson submitted a photo of Tucker but no story, so I asked for the story. Here is Tucker's story.

The lesson here is if you send a photo in of your pet please include a short bio. And don't forget the name you want posted.

And on that note, thanks for all of the submissions this past week. Do you have something you would like to submit? Video? Your pet photo? A neat animal story? Please send to petmorons at gmail dot com.

Have a great week!!

13 My favorite speaker at endurance conventions liked to say: its good to be consistently inconsistent - for feeding horses. No set in stone times, vary the menu a bit etc. For horses that are going to have their routines disrupted by trailering them to rides its very helpful, but its good advice in general even for the household pets. You'll get fed when I get home, get up whatever. Feeding free choice dry food is even easier with the dogs and cats here.

I had to laugh at the top photo. Prince the Poodle was trying to convince us it was supper time while I was reading the thread. (Remember that scene from the first LOTR movie where Pippen is concerned about meals? ("Yes, but what about second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea?") Prince shares that anxiety.

My 11 year old Reggie pees inside the litter box. Usually.

But when he craps, sometimes it's inside the box, sometimes it's half in and half out, and sometimes it's two feet away from the box. It doesn't make any sense to me.

23 Most folks at AoSHQ know that Gerard, a brother-in-arms who blogs at American Digest, lost his home and everything in it in the California Camp Fire. He is presently staying with his 104-year-old mother. Follow-up post today includes the following:

"What I do have is the love and the generosity of my cherished friends and readers. It is more wonderful and more widespread than I ever could have imagined. . . .

What I do have is this small unknowing black cat sleeping curled at my side after our ride out of the fire.

What I do have is my mother sleeping quietly in the next room, her breathing soft and low as her life is fine and bright."

http://americandigest.org/wp/ashes-ashes-we-all-fall-down/

Gerard adopted Olive, a lovely black kitteh, just two weeks ago. He has become quite the pet person in the days between her entry into his life and their flight to safety with his mother in Chico. Any morons (pet or otherwise) who would like to help him can hit the tip jar on his blog. It sounds as if he got out with little more than the clothes on his back and his precious Olive.

25 All of our Goldens have been hunters and, yeah, you have to train them to handle gunfire when they are little pups.
And it really does make them less skittish at sudden noises, etc.

Still, we've had a couple who hate thunder, including our current goofball Cooley. We always know when a thunderstorm is coming in because he plops down under the table and frowns long before we ourselves can hear it.

26 We practically need a baby gate for the one cat who wants to go out. In the morning when my son has to go to school or my husband his work he's right at the door. I don't really mind him going out for little stretches since it's cooler and the fleas are gone, but the only thing tht discourages him are my shaking a bunch of gangly keys or showing him the dustmop. I don't hit him with either one-but one he can't stand the sound of one or the look of the other. Perhaps I don't dust enough. f

28 Having a problem with my old cat Cinnamon, she is going in her litter box but she seems to be standing in it but peeing outside of it.

I'd take Cinnamon to the vet to be checked out for diabetes (more common in older cats than in younger ones) and/or a UTI. If she has been peeing a lot more than usual, diabetes is the more likely diagnosis.

30 I enjoyed that link to the rare bird hunting breeds. I've only hunted with dogs twice: a beagle during rabbit season (cue the Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck cartoons) and some Brittanies for upland birds. They weren't my dogs so they had been properly trained. Both times the dogs made the hunt even more special. Wonderful companions in the field. After the hunt the beagle decided the best place to rest was on my lap. He earned it.

Posted by: Skip at November 10, 2018 03:29 PM (T4oHT)

33 Skip, sounds like Cinnamon needs a bigger litter box.
I like the ones from Nature's Miracle. Jumbo size.
They are made from recycled paper and if they git too odiferous, just toss them out and replace.
They come in a 3 pack.

Nice assortment of doggies today!

That is funny. The problem is that cats are rare among animals in that they are not ugly and most animals are fugly. So you can improve the appearance of practically any animal by photoshopping a cat's face onto it. These are really good.

41 I know sheep are supposed to be dummies but I think it would be awfully nice to be able to have them around.

Woodrow Wilson and his family kept a flock of 48 sheep (I assume one for each of the then-48 states) on the White House lawn during World War I. The flock "saved manpower by cutting the grass and earned $52,823 for the Red Cross through an auction of their wool. The Wilsons wanted to be a model American family helping the war effort."

50 Don't want to overload the pet thread with history, but it's useful to remember that animals (including those often kept as pets) can be war veterans who work, suffer, and die alongside their humans. Here is a collection of photos of animals who served (draftees, let it be remembered, and not volunteers) in WWI. The photos include Sergeant Stubby, the first dog to be given rank in the U.S. Army; the pet koala of an Australian soldier; homing pigeons used to carry messages from the front; and the cat mascot of HMAS Encounter.

Years ago, I got a calico kitten. Great, I thought. Female, it's not going to give me too much trouble. But it went into heat, it started in with weird meowing and shoving its butt at me - I had to have it spayed. IMO, intact pets can't be part of civil society, unless you are into breeding. You might want to consider having it fixed.

Husband used to go down to the flatlands, tidewater, for duck hunting a lot but hasn't done that for a couple of years.

You know how it goes. Old hunting partners pass or move away. Old property owners who welcomed hunting friends sell the place. Whatever. Things change. And you yourself get older. *sigh*

62 That was a very interesting article.

I'm glad you liked it. I thought the article was good because it included animals from 1) all armies/navies, not just those of the Allies; and 2) photos from areas other than the Western Front. And it is still sobering to think of the high prices animals as well as humans pay in wartime.

One good thing that came out of WWI was the establishment of the U.S. Army's Veterinary Corps by Act of Congress in 1916. At present the corps has more than 700 veterinarians and 1800 enlisted soldiers, caring not only for military working animals and the pets of service members, but also deployed during natural disasters and other emergencies. I expect some of them are on their way to help with the fire disaster in California.

68 Hi everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know how Chester is doing. He is doing exceptionally better the wounds on his legs are almost completely closed. We have temporary braces for him and although he does well with them on they are causing new wounds on his legs. So he wouldn't be able to use them long term. We have to get the custom fitted braces from ortho pet which will need fiberglass casts of his legs so that he gets a proper fit. The main problem here is that it requires a lump sum payment of $3000 dollars with an additional $1000 for incidentals (ex. medicine, vet visits etc.) We don't have it, today we have payed out approximately $5200 dollars, so once again I have to ask the community for their help and if they can find it in their hearts to donate to Chester so we can finish this. So please consider this as you could make it a very happy holiday season for Chester if he could have his permanent braces for Christmas. Thank you again from Chester's family and have a great day!

72 I've let my dogs keep their manhood without difficulties

It might be different with dogs-- but as Steve and Cold Bear found out, there's no way you can keep an intact cat of either sex indoors without problems. The girls yowl like Maxine Waters when in heat and the boys spray extremely smelly urine. My Casey came to me straight from the vet after being neutered, and I was advised to keep him on cage rest for a few days until his urine stopped smelling. It took about six days before his pee was reasonably low-octane, so to speak. I understand that cat breeders keep tom cats used as studs in separate enclosures on their property precisely because of the urine problem.

73 Why do Schnauzers think everything they look upon belongs to them?

Schnauzers are definitely FSA.

74 All the dogs are too adorable for words. I hope they remain well fed, run, and spoiled rotten.

75 >>My favorite trainer holds a seminar in VA, which is a
long way to go from Michigan. My bird dogs kind of come off the scrap
heap, I have been meaning to send in their pictures.

Our labs were trained by a really great trainer in Michigan. He was reasonable in price. We moved from Michigan, but took a new dog back there when we were Oklahoma.

77 My two cats are still convinced DST is a plot to starve them. They know damn well when dinner time is and I am CHEATING them of their noms.

I got them (brothers from the same litter) when they were already two years old so I don't know what their kitten training was like, but they could care less about thunder, fireworks, etc. (And where I live the 4th of July sounds like a major war.) They are not keen on vacuum cleaners, however.

A horse of my acquaintance, who has since gone to the Great Pasture in the sky, was also completely calm in the face of sudden loud noises. Training is great but temperament is a pretty large part of how animals respond.

Agree. My cousin in NC has had two miniature schnauzers, both of them ridiculously spoiled.

79 I have an aunt working out in California. She is in the location of the wildfires. Luckily the lady who she's working for got her dog out of the house before the fires. So her and her dog are safe, though everything else is apparently gone.

87 I have an intact female cat. I doubt I'll have her spayed. She's a Scottish Fold and from the last litter of a mamma cat that had several litters. (I have two males from the litter before).

Fanny is undersized. She's never had a stong heat, usually her heats last a few days. I doubt she could be bred.

88 I have an intact female cat. I doubt I'll have her spayed.

You might want to consult your vet about that; intact female cats are at increased risk of mammary and other cancers; pyometra (potentially deadly collection of pus in the uterus); uterine prolapse; vaginal problems; and infections. Here is a link to the Feline Health Center at Cornell's vet school; I've found the FHC to be a very trustworthy source of info. about cat health-- it was invaluable to me when one of my cats developed diabetes.

89 Mishum offers the worst, dumbest responses to the submissions of pet photos. The comments from him seem to indicate he is functionally retarded.

90 Ya got some sexy legs there, iron308.


I love the pet-a-palooza today. Just wanna hug it.

The stories people submit make it. Always something to smile or laugh about in them.

Thanks MisHum.
