Neighbor from across the street moved into the house next door with two boxers.
Lovely dogs, fun, playful, kind but not gentle. I'm barefoot a lot and they need their nails clipped!

Sis - It's the thought that counts. ;-)

My dog knows what I'm going to do before I do.

If I walk to the front door she's already there dancing. If I walk to the side door she's already there dancing. If I walk down the hall I have to step over here to get there.

ergo: dogs have ESP.

My dog knows when I wake up, before I get out of bed. He's not in the room, but he starts whining when I open my eyes.

Neighbor kids come by 2-3x/week to play with our dog. Everyone in the neighborhood knows her by name. She has a bigger circle of friends than most people.

Dogs are easier to get along with than most people.

And a lot nicer.

Ours is a great rodent hunter. I find dead squirrels, moles, mice, rats all the time. Glad she doesn't eat them, a lot of rats have high arsenic levels.

April's a sweetie, except for when you approach the door and she doesn't know who you are. Gah.

Vinnie (my ferret) still has something of a religious fan club thing going on. He's got a tough life. All that sleeping. And yawning.

Well, to give her credit for that ferocity, that's how she was trained to deal with strangers. She was daughters first line of defense while growing up. Now, in her old age, the ferocity is departing but she still makes one hellofa doorbell.

Well, if the Beagle pisses on my bed (on my wife's side, no less), my wife's going to be looking for a new home for him.

One of my dogs is getting pretty old (she's 15), but she still thinks she can take on any dog that comes along. She can't, but she thinks she can.
She has my other dog convinced she can kill him. He doesn't realize that she can't.

The goldfish I threw into the pond 4 years ago have stabilized at about 5".
Pretty fish darting through the murky water. Wonder if they're too big to eat mosquito larvae?

Sorry about the formating, ".ea" doesn't work very well.

My dog is freaking out from the smells on this animal scale I'm fixing for hte Brookfield Zoo in Chicago.

She's been staring at the loadcell I put in the middle of the dining room floor. It has a short cable coming out one side that she must think is a tail so she's waiting for it to move.

Every 15 minutes or so she gets up to smell it for another 3 minutes...

Two springs ago, my dog ruptured one of the cruciate ligaments in her right knee. She was 8.5 years old, so I paid the $500+ for surgery, meds, followups, etc.

Now, she's 11. She's got a grade 4 (out of 6) heart murmur, which has been causing fluid to build up in her lungs. I've already got her on Enacard (heart med), and now Lasix (diuretic, to pull the fluid from her lungs), trying to stave off congestive heart failure.

Yesterday morning, while I was dressing my son for school, I heard her yelp...upon investigation, I find her holding up, and then later, limping on her left leg. I'm relatively sure she's ruptured one of the CLs in that leg, too.

Sorry to hear that, Freakdog.

I have a Lab/Shepherd that when she was 8 I was told she had a large tumor.
We found it to be cancer and had it mostly removed when she was 9. It was the size of a grapefruit, and they didn't get all of it.

But now she's 15 1/2 and doing great. She's been on Benadryl since the surgery and apparently that's supposed to help keep the cancer cells from traveling through her blood. I never really expected her to be around this long.

One of my cats is getting too old, fat, and arthritic to be able to jump up to places he used to be able to jump up to, so my fiance and I agreed that he will, from now on, be an "indoor only" cat. Kinda sad, in a away. :-(
