Jake and I had been discussing getting a companion for our 16 year old dog, and well, an offer fell into our lap that we couldn't refuse.
A friend and neighbor had an oops litter (she was lied to about the dog being spayed), 8 pups!
She found homes for all but one.
We get pup for Bear and she...
Some friends were stuck caring for a third party's pittie while he's in Jail (could) be awhile.
Dog is a very, very loving boy about 3 years old.
Naturaly he's quite depressed at his owner's departure. Poor guy has no appetite (which should improve with time), he still eats people food.
More Brillo! AKA Mike Tyson Kitten (huge boy, teeny voice, but loves to talk)
Keep in mind he is a kitten, 8 months old, almost as big as either of my girls, and will definitely dwarf them when he's grown.
I know a lot of you have dogs as well, though not sure if any of you deal with timidity or anxiety.
I found this product and am seriously considering it for my dog who has terrible separation anxiety, and at 14 years, I do not want to resort to drugs if I can avoid it.

In April of 1994 I was sitting in the reception area of my vet's office in Seattle.
A woman came in demanding to have a tiny kitten euthanized, she couldn't be bothered with her health issues.

Overhearing all this, I...
Ok, well, I wanted to post his intro with pics, but my computer is toast, and my new cell phone won't transfer pics without bluetooth.
So, our new boy is 6 months old and still intact (inlaws are paying for his neuter as a condition of us taking him).
He is a long haired brown mackerel tabby...
Father in law decided to stop paying for Internet, so we got cut off last month, shortly after losing Internet, Spaz passed away, just two months shy of her 18Th birthday. I'll post a memorial for her once my computer is set up.

I'm not talking about peeves here, I'm talking about things that really get on your nerves.
I'm a very polite person, even to those who aren't polite, manners don't cost anything, and they are in unlimited supply.
That's the number one thing that annoys me.
A close second is people who don't...
I just discovered yet another tumor on my old dog.
The others do not concern me, he's had them for years and they have remained unchanged.
Such is the way with labrador genes and being prone to fatty tumors and skin tags.
This new one concerns me though, it's about the size of my fist, but...
Thoughts, prayers, anything.
They've been trying to file bankruptcy, they live full time in their RV, have two properties they cannot sell that are a drain, and after both had very long professional careers, their 401Ks have vanished, like so many others.
The bankruptcy trustee is convinced...

Tonight I make homemade pumpkin soup from some sugar pumpkins I cooked down yesterday.

It seems to be a veritable nexus of retirees and car clubs.
Saw this beauty yesterday,trailer-ed and no doubt on its way to a show this weekend.
Although I think the photographer is wrong, I'm fairly sure it's a 52 and not a 53.
Regardless, you don't often see customized school buses.
You know it and love it.
If you haven't seen Two Lumps, you'll fall in love.

Hubby has been wanting a little pet of his own for a while now.
Last night I managed to catch a Mediterranean House Gecko, so we've got it housed in a 5 gallon terrarium setup, plan to removed fake plants and add live ones later.
One of the few reptiles I will take from the wild as they are an...
