I'M DYING. Huskies are my favorite breed and we can't have any pets.  :'( :'(

If you lived in my neighborhood, I would plot to steal your dogs. I'm just saying.

PS They're soo cuutttteee.

Ok, now that's just way too cute...  ;D

As for my own pets, I'll have to see what I can dig up, I don't think I have any on my hard drive at the moment.

Now that I finally have a scanner I can put some pics in this thread!  :) Regrettably I don't have any of my last cat, Shadow, which my wife and I bought about the same time we got married. When my computer died last year I lost all the pics of him. Anyway...

First up is the dog I had when I was a kid. My Father comes up with very inventive names for his dogs. The last three have been named "friend," "pal," and "buddy". I'm not as creative, so this pet's name was simply "dog":



Second up is the cat I had when I was a teenager and lived with my grandparents. His name was "cat":



And last but most importantly, the first pet I ever had, Snowy. Yes, yes, this is the same snowy I mentioned in this thread. I know you've been waiting to see a pic of him, and here are two for your viewing pleasure! First, Snowy playing with me as I pretended to be a chew toy:



And here's another pic of Snowy, as he tried to rip me to shreds as I lay helpless on the floor... ah, good times, good times...

Actually, the first few pics are of him as a puppy, and the last few fully grown. He is an alaskan malamute. He dwarfs the husky a few floors down from us.

Ah, I see. He's gorgeous!

And I love the cat pictures.

I suppose posting a picture of my fish would be very anti-climactic. However, to my credit, I did have a betta that would jump out of the bowl and bite my finger.

Let's see the fish?
The fish died two years ago. I thought I had a video of him biting my finger (which is the most hilarious thing ever -- my scream is amazing), but I guess it was in my Razr, which is God knows where at the moment.

I had a whole bunch of male betta fish (not at once) over years. Trying to remember their names: Bugger, Hoogie (after Pieter Van Den Hoogenband, LOVE HIM), Killer, Slime (that was Mr. Ismi. I hated it but the name stuck and everyone else loved it). I was considering getting some more fish, but since I'll be having kids at some point in the next couple of years, I want to focus on just taking care of my husband now.  :P

I had two more, but I can't remember their names. Argh.

anyway, I love the pet photos. They're all so cute. Celtic, I can't believe you guys have horses! Awesome!

And little Asterisk is priceless.

Oh, what a sweetie! But calicoes always are, even when they're being horrible. Just tonight, my calico wolfed down one of her brother's sardines, as well as both of her own. With a face where butter couldn't possibly melt in her pretty mouth. And don't she know it!

Regrettably I don't have any of my last cat, Shadow, which my wife and I bought about the same time we got married. When my computer died last year I lost all the pics of him.

The following picture is not of my cat Shadow. However, it is a fairly close match. And let's face it, one cat is as good as another.



I stumbled upon a pic of my cat Shadow today. Apparently I had printed it at some point through walmart's picture center, because I had it saved on the glorious site, walmart.com. Anyway, yeah... shadow...

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Naw. I just think they are annoying. Too much work, money, time, etc. And dogs shed way too much for my liking. I hate having dog hair on my clothes. Add that to the list of pet peeves.

We have a dog named "the Kraken" and a dog named Gojira. One is a Aussie shepherd mix, one is a deerheaded chihuahua. Yes, we named our dog "the Kraken" specifically so we could say "Release the Kraken!" Now you all have a window into just how strange our little family is.

The cats are named Joachim and Anna.

We thought a Gods and Monsters theme would be good. But saints and monsters were as close as we got.

Yes, wonderful dogs. This is the latest of a long succession of this breed I've known over many decades. She's about 6 years old; wet through in this photo, but in any case clipped fairly short for the Australian summer.

Can thank J.K. Rowling...Hagrid is a half-giant character in Harry Potter books.

My Hagrid weighs 18 pounds, so its very fitting.  However he is a nimble giant who still routinely leaps into the air 2-3 feet while playing, and he is 10.

My kitty Crystal. She's a mess ... like a little tiger one second, and purring and licking my arm the next. But I love her. She's been with me through some tough times.



She always gets inside things. I was moving, and packing these plastic drawers with kitchen stuff. The bottom drawer was missing, so she climbed inside.



Crystal is my little Blue Eyes. She learned about sitting at the dining room table for meals when she was a kitten, so every time I would eat, she jumped up and sat quietly with me. She doesn't beg for food (except tuna or yogurt!) but she knows we sit at the table for meals, and she always joined me.



Mornings are her favorite time. She always gets on the bed while I'm making it, and plays while I'm trying to smooth everything out. Then when I finally get it made, I toss a toy so it "escapes" over the pillow so she can dive over and chase it. My bedroom now doesn't get morning sun, and I have a quilt with ribbonwork on it now so I don't let her stretch with her claws on it anymore, but she still likes to "help me" make the bed.

I didn't even want her - I was going to get a kitten for my daughter and was trying to pick a gray tabby from a large cage of feral rescue kittens, but she climbed the side, launched herself at me and landed on my shoulder, and refused to let me put her down. So ... we ended up adopting TWO kittens. Crystal became very precious to me. :)  She has asthma (her eyes are dirty in some of these pics because I have to clean them a couple of times a day), and I've almost lost her more than once, but I'm so thankful to have her.

Don't worry. I had a cat, a cream semi-longhair (he lost most of his winter fur during spring), who looked very dignified and handsome when he felt like it. Most other times, he looked like an unmade bed. He was the most undemanding, laid-back, good-natured sort. Sadly, he is no longer with us, we had to have him put to sleep almost a year ago because of kidney failure. He was fifteen.

OTOH, his sister, a shorthaired calico, was the most perfectly-proportioned cat I've ever seen, and not a hair or whisker out of place, her white patches were always spotless. She was clever and mischievous in equal measure. She, too, is now in kitty heaven, put down because of a jaw tumor a year and a half ago.

The one left standing is their older half-sister, a green-eyed black beauty. She's eighteen, but she hides her age well.  :)

Love the kitty watching the computer. It's so funny when they do that!

My daughter's cat will usually lie on the ottoman if "Too Cute" is on with cats and watch enraptured for hours. His attention flags during commercials if they don't feature cats prominently, but he loves to watch kitties on TV.

I used to leave David Attenborough's Wildlife specials on for him, on a bird episode, to keep him company when he was alone. He's something of a couch potato.

I understand. I used to be a "dog person" ... well, I still love dogs. But we got our first cat 15 years ago, and she seemed very special - she was gorgeous and demanded "love time" every day. Then a stray Maine Coon who was like a dog. Then a stray kitten who patrolled the farm with me - he was my buddy (but brought me very large prey sometimes!). And now my Crystal and my daughter's cat. I never knew before cats had such personalities, but they are pretty cool. I thought all of mine were special, but since I've had 5 cats and they've all been outstanding ... I'm thinking cats are just pretty cool. :)
Aγιος ὁ Θεός, Ἅγιος ἰσχυρός, Ἅγιος ἀθάνατος, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς

Let us commit ourselves and one another and our whole life to Christ our God

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

This.  :D

Another never-to-be-forgotten cat of mine was a tabby-and-white, who had more brains than many people I know. Loving and affectionate, but also very much a watch-cat. Everything that came into or out of the house, including furniture, groceries and cars, had to pass inspection. She was easily the most eloquent cat I've ever known, she made sure you knew exactly what she was saying through voice and mannerisms. She also had a flawless ability to put people in their place when it was necessary. You've never been told off until you've been told off by a cat.  ;)

She always had a grumpy streak, and the grumpiness increased as she aged, but this did not diminish our love for her. This grand old lady was just shy of seventeen when we had to take her to the vet for the last time. Her pretty pink nose had developed an inoperable skin cancer.

She really sounds like something special. :)  My Crystal has some of those traits in minor ways, but it sounds like nowhere near to that degree. I would be most interested to have been able to hear your cat telling someone off. ;)

She sounds most wonderful. :)  It sounds as though your cats have mostly lived long lives; that's very good to hear. :) 

I lost my little buddy the hunter at too young an age - his symptoms pointed to the bad cat food from China scare, but he was gone before I could get him to the vet. And the Maine Coon and our first girl ended up in circumstances beyond my control in a divorce. My current two are still fairly young. Both with health issues (well controlled), and God willing, I pray they will be around for many years yet.

I still want to hear your cat telling someone off. I love the idea of a grumpy watch-cat.  :D

Oh, I could write a book about that cat.  ;D

Just one example of her telling-off skills:

She fell pregnant before we'd had the chance to get her desexed, so we figured we'd let her have the litter, then get her "fixed" (we ended up keeping one of her kittens). Not long before she was due, she was in the kitchen with us, quietly grooming herself. A feline head over a bowling pin body.  :D At one stage, she was trying to reach a spot on her back. Without much success. Again and again, she flicked her head back to reach the spot. Another hard flick - and the bowling pin toppled over in a flurry of paws and legs.

Now, a cardinal rule in getting along with a cat is you never laugh at their indignity. Ever. But it was impossible to not laugh at this sight. Well. Mistress gathered herself up, flicked her ears back, glared at us with blazing eyes, and meowed in no uncertain terms, incandescent with rage. How dare you! How DARE you lot laugh at me while I'm in this condition?

We tried placating her, telling her we weren't making fun of her, but that we couldn't help but laugh at the spectacle. I don't care! You have NO right to laugh at me! She stormed off, seething.

She treated us like bad smells for a couple of days, but forgave us eventually.

Our new dog, Murphy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
