I’ve just shown this thread to my visiting Korean relative. She said some of these pets look real delicious!

Here she is, from this summer. She loves to lay in the sun on the deck. She'll be 19 in March.

And one from around 6 years ago...

100%...but was a rescue and was very sweet. Was poisoned by squirrels--a stupid neighbor who put poison out for the squirrels that were eating her birdseed and they brought it over the fence and dropped it and Weinie found it. It happened TWICE! She was in the "hospital" for 10 days the first time. We didn't figure out what happened until the second time.

Weinie was running for governor of CA when it happened...in 2003.

Forgot to post my foster dog. He is 95 pounds and could put on a few more pounds! Cannot understand why someone would turn him in to a high kill shelter with his calm manners and good looks.

Sad :( It’s always other people you have to watch for with your pets. My boy was attacked by a Husky at the dog park. A half inch higher on his face and he would have lost his left eye. I no longer go to the dog park. The jerk owner admitted BEFORE the attack his dog wasn’t socialized which is why he brought her there. *shakes head*

We live on a ravine near the bayou and feed birds all year. We have lots of rats too and I won’t put out rat poison for that reason, I am afraid a dog will get the poison or eat the rat that was killed by the poison. I caught a rat in my attic today, in a trap! Of course you know what happens if you put rat poison in your attic and a rat eats it. You have to move to a hotel till the stench goes away.

FRegards. I still have to consciously put her out of my mind or I start to cry. The pain is still so great.

Here's a couple of our little fur-baby Apple from this Christmas season:

I am certain she was really trying to help and Mommy hoomin just couldn't understand that...

She does love her Christmas stocking. To lie on.

Pauli was not interested in actually putting her antlers or jingle bells on this year so I used one of my scarves and snapped this one. Merry Christmas to all our furry friends. :) Golden Christmas Wishes

I never take mine to the dog park. People lie. Also, for all the people with little dogs; do not put them down with big dogs you don’t know. If you see them being chased understand there is a reason. The big dog usually sees them as prey like a rabbit and they are not having fun unless they know each other. We had to explain to a woman to pick her poor pup up. It was being chased all over the place by several big dogs. She thought it was cute. It wasn’t.

I truly enjoyed this thread and seeing everyone’s furry family.

I am not technologically advanced enough to post pics, but if I were...you would see a pic of an old, sweet natured, black, white snouted Lab. And a black short hair kitty cat.

Youv’e see one black Lab and one black kitty...youv’e seen ‘em all!!

Merry Christmas to all..and your loved ones!

I am a foster fail. I rescued a purebred Finnish Spitz that I intended to foster but fell in love with him. He is 6 and they neutered him at the shelter. The braindead owners turned him in with his papers which the shelter conventiently lost. He came from a very exclusive breeder who sells his dogs for show.
Don’t know why the owners did not send him back to the breeder as stipulated in his original purchase contract. I am worried because of his age and him being neutered that he would have no purpose to some people.

Your Shepard is beautiful. Are you going to keep him or adopt him out? I voluteer with a group that works with the local animal shelter to network and save dogs and cats. Last Saturday we adopted out 19 dogs and 5 cats. we work with quite a few rescues in Texas and around the country. We get most of the Shepards either adopted or rescued. I have not seen any go down since I have been involved.

Merry Christmas.
