I didn't see a thread for posting pictures. Feel free to blend if there is one.

But I thought it would be kinda cool if we could share photos of our beloved pets, be them dogs, cats, birds, fish, pigs, horses, etc...

Or if you see a really cute animal pic online, feel free to post it, just let us know it's not your pet that you're posting so we don't tell you what a nice pet you have. :)

Anyoo, here's my adorable pooch (15 in. beagle) who was being a total stinker about getting her picture taken.

I just got a beagle. Somebody wanted to take it to the pound. Pix will be available shortly. We mind our daughter's dog while she's working, then there are two cats. Our neighbor's dog also hangs in the backyard with the other three dogs. Come feeding time I feel like a mess cook.

here is a recent one of my mudpuppy--an avid but totally ineffective fisherman.

Puppy or adult? Do you mean you heard someone say they were going to take it to the pound and you volunteered to take it instead?

Beagles are so cute, aren't they? Ornery as all get out, but cute.

Cute mudpuppy. Bet it's fun to give him/her a bath.;)

Four years old. The person had two, and planned to take both to the pound. We negotiated--she would keep one if I took the other.

Veinglory, it looks like a border collie--very athletic breed, usually a bit high strung.

You're a very strange man, Rich. I trust you're aware of that.

Nope, it's not working. I've nothing left to strive for. Thanks, but take'm back, I'll go bother Chunky.

However, I did promise some 15 seconds of fame for Kira.


O Kira, capitivating calico--

Cool Cacophony of carefree colors.

You and Jen, sympatico--

Symbiotic mushy lullers.

Spring cleaning around the farm is always a challenge. I bought a pressure-washer to speed up the process. As you can see, it works well on my daughter's Morgan, "Rat".

Very cute cat.

Mine looks like a border collie when alert and his ears fall forward and a spaniel when relaxed--my best guess is that he is a mix of those two.

Make sure you keep that pressure washer well back--mine has a big sign saying 'not to be used on dogs or livestock' one guy even uses it to kill mice. I assume yours isnlt quite so high pressure :)

Schoolmarm, I've had many a pressure washer but only used them on inanimate objects. The pressure is only good from a few feet away. Looking at the picture, all I see is the horse getting a soaking. I do believe veinglory's right. For the washer to be effective it would be working a thin line between a soaking and harming the horse.

That is, unless this power washer is somehow especially made for horses.

Thanks, Puddle. This was a great idea. Nice dog.
Great kitty, Jenna. And wow, Joanne, I can't believe you use a power washer on the horses. LOL

Here's Rush, German shepherd #1: http://www.mechadrake.com/kitten/kittenrush.jpg

In that picture, you can see Bandit's bum. He's German Shepherd #2:

http://www.mechadrake.com/kitten/kittenbandit.jpg

Both of them live in my parents' house now because my husband and I are in an apartment. (I apologise for Rush's disgustingly long nails in that first picture. Since I got my grooming job, I chase him around the house with nail clippers every time I see him.)

My husband and I have our own hassle, a black cat named Dante:

He was still a kitten, then. He's far bigger now.

Jenna - beautiful cat. Looks like she's sleeping on a bigger animal. I should scan a photo of my kitty.

Schoolmarm - I love horses!

jdkiggins - Such a cute pup. Love the bow and is that a necklace?

BlueBadger - I've loved German Sheppard's ever since I watched the tv show "Rin Tin Tin K-9 Cop" as a kid. I think the show was Canadian and made in the 80's or early 90's. I especially love the expression on your second dog's face. And I really love that picture of your cat. Reminds me of my brother's cat who has serious attitude.

Wow! I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. :ROFL: We don't bathe the horses using a power washer. That was a joke, guys. Just a joke. The photo was a set-up. The horse is barely getting wet. I've been working with horses for 44 years. Trust me, I don't do anything that will hurt them, and we bathe them in an indoor wash stall with hot and cold running water, not in the driveway with an industrial pressure washer.

The backstory to this photo is that my barn slave and I were pressure-washing winter blankets which were hanging on the fence. My daughter (who is a certified trainer) had just finished working the horse, had given him a nice bubble bath, and was grazing him on the lawn while he dried. I had Garrett turn the water on the horse because it made a cool picture with the setting sun shining on the mist. Rat (the horse) is a mud puppy, and we always joked about the fact that he can get dirtier faster than any other horse in the barn, so the photo was a natural.

Sorry if it disturbed anyone.

Actually, Joanne, on a very low setting and standing verrry far away, a power washer might work. :ROFL:

Yep, Puddle. I wanted to make sure everyone knew she was a girl, so I made her a pink beaded necklace.

Looks like my bandwidth is dead 'til April 1st, so my pics won't load. Sorry, all!

(Don't worry, this board didn't kill it ... rather, it was some Gaia Online fanatics linking to pictures off my site for their profiles. That'll stop in a hurry, I promise.)

That said, here's Chaos. He wasn't very happy about being woken from his nap for a mugshot.

Now that my scanner is working, I thought I'd share one of the best pictures we've ever taken of a cat.

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c370/DarkaDragoon/TazandDottie.jpg

Dottie is the mostly black one - unfortunately she passed away several years ago. The gray one was my boy, Taz. We got him when he was a kitten and I was probably around 4 years old. I grew up with him but sadly, I don't live with him anymore. When my parents divorced he stayed with my father, and to this day I don't know what happened to old Tazzie.

Fast forward a few years, and here's more pics of my baby, Chaos. I apologize for the size of the pics, I forgot to resize them before uploading. They were taken this morning, while I was attempting to fold some laundry...which remains unfolded for the moment.

I usually host mine on Photobucket.com and use the IMG code (Photobucket will actually provide this code for you) to post them here. There are other sites that you can host at as well, I mostly use PB out of habit.

This is my darling Rosie - we think she's an OES/Boarder Collie cross of some sort. She's a large contributor to the plots of my WIPs. She accepts payment for this in small hot dog slices and an occasional zucchini chunk (I know, I have no idea why, but it's funny to watch).
I'm just grateful she didn't end up with the 6-inch hair of an OES. :)

What a cutie-pie !!!


What I do to post photos is put them on one of my web pages, then what you're seeing is remote linking - these photos you're seeing aren't HERE, as in they're not being stored on the AW server, just linked to their location on the web. There are plenty of free sites that will host your photos for you, like Photobucket or Flickr.

Keep in mind they're public, so anyone can see them, but they're just photos - right? :)

Oh Oh I have a new puppy. We've had her for 6 weeks, she is 4 1/2 months old. Her name is Leela, she is a shepherd mix. We got her at the Birmingham Humane Society. When we went to the shelter, she was the first dog I saw. I pointed her out to my husband just as she ran up to the window to check us out. when the guy brought her out, she came to us like she already knew we were her people. She has been a joy and a bit of a challenge. I've never had a dog before, and Mr. Groove hasn't had one since he was a kid.

BTW sunna, what is an OES? Your Rosie looks sweet.

I can never get a face-on photo of my dog; she just always moves right as I'm pressing the button. I think she gets it from me. Pity, because she smiles like a human, and I can never get anyone to believe it unless they see her in person.

Sorry - OES is short for Old English Sheepdog. That's what we thought we were getting at first; but I'm not sorry! I'm told you can spend 4-7 hours a week brushing them. And you know that would have been my job. :)

Anne would know more about it than me, but I knew a guy who had a parrot (or something) that was on it's third owner. I think he said they lived a 100, 150 years?

awatkins
06-14-2007, 10:20 PM
Oh, yes, healthy parrots can be very long-lived. Some people even make provisions in their wills to make sure the birds are taken care of after they (the owners) die. It's quite possible that Pancho, my Amazon, could outlive me! As far as I know, he's in his mid-twenties (his import band is from the eighties but I don't know when he hatched) and he's as fit and active as much younger Amazons. A twenty-year-old Amazon is pretty much a youngun'. Panchie still learns new words and sounds, too--he especially likes to imitate the sound of water dripping and my squeaky office chair.

I've had Rio for nearly 21 years and he's in great health, too. As long as he and Pancho stay healthy and barring any accidents, they should be here for many, many more years. Even cockatiels, budgies, and some other parrot-type birds can make it into their twenties.

Of course, a good diet, plenty of exercise and things to keep their minds sharp are also necessary. Birds can get bored and that's not a good thing (some will self-mutilate or pluck their feathers).

Ahem....okay, stopping now. I can talk about birds all day. :)

sassandgroove
06-14-2007, 10:24 PM
Are they territorial? My aunt has one. We were going to stay at her house one time, (she wasn't there) and the bird was out of it's cage. He didn't seem pleased we were there. That (along with a couple other factors) helped us to decide to stay at a hotel.
