FReeper Fur-babies
Free Republic | 08/07/2011 | Bubby (He made me do it)

Posted on 08/07/2011 8:01:02 PM PDT by Outlaw Woman

There are many here on Free Republic that absolutely love our "Fru-babies". We post pics and follow each other, well I thought it would be terrific if we post the pictures of our 'babies'.

I don't know about you all but mine 'get me through' these nightmarish days. They love me no matter what. They are there and want to be with me no matter what. That includes the way I now look in the mornings! LOL!

Show YOUR babies here... :) Here are a few of mine both past and present...

This is baby smokey. She was destined for the gunny sack and creek but...she came to live with me. :)

This is 'Gremlin'. He was absolutely the best K9 I ever owned. Collies rule! He was lying on the side of the road way back in the 80's. His tail had been snapped off (a trap?) and he was full of burrs. Anyway he came to live with us. We groomed him for days to get out the burrs. The vet said he was around 15 years old. Gremlin lived with us for around 7 years. Absolutely the best dog I ever owned.

This is "Bubby", (he made me post this). This is the most perfect feline I've ever had. He's a 3-legger and came to be with us 3 years ago. One day I looked out my front door and he was wandering around. All I had to do was call 'here kitty, kitty, kitty...and he came flying. What a blessing he has been to my household!

And this...this is "Baby Boy" the most joyous experience I've had raising a 'critter'. My 'feral' rescue (no pics of her) brought him home one night. His eyes were still closed. She was licking him like he was a kitten and she had him firmly in her clutches (but no injuries). All I can surmise is that she thought he was an orphaned kitten.

Show your Furbabies and tell your story(ies). I'm thoroughly convinced that God gives us these creatures as gifts. They enrich our lives and they love us without reservation. I'm hoping you will share your blessings with all of us FReepers.

Fur babies, huh? Well, I could show you a picture of my chest, but I’d be banned from FR for life...

All are adorable.

Also heart warming to know there are kind people like you who take in “fur-babies” and give them a loving home. :)

Awww, thanks for posting these and telling their stories. I’m not home enough to have a dog so I enjoy seeing pictures of other people’s pets.

Roxy the black one, showed up at my back door one day and would not leave. Tried to find her owner but no one ever claimed her. Found her a home with a neighbor but she kept coming back to our house. The brown Pom is crippled and can't get around very well so I end up carrying him...a lot. They are both spoiled rotten. There's also a crazy border collie that thinks it's a little dog too in the house.Photobucket

The min-pin with one eye, a rescue started a fight with the coon-hound pictured next to him when the hound was a pup. Even though he was a pup he still weighed about 30 pounds and the min-pin was about 13 pounds. Fighting out of one’s weight class is never a good idea.

The other two min-pins are his daughters one of which was actually born in my lap.

The Pomeranian was hit a glancing blow by the car in front of me and when I stopped to check on her she jumped in my car. She had a piece of phone cord tied around her neck and was matted and malnourished so I took her home.

The one in the top row middle is a pit / red-heeler mix which was destined to be put to sleep if not adopted and is the smartest dog I have ever had. He loves to crawl into my lap when I am at my computer desk. Quite a lap dog at 70+ pounds.

It is a real trip as they are all so different but all well loved.

I want to thank you and all the Freepers who post stories like this. I LOVE cats and dogs. I grew up with cats, and lived in a home with a dog in high school. I miss it. I'm simply not capable of properly caring for a dog, and not even a cat at this point in my life. I have friends with dogs and cats, and I get to see them when I visit, sort of "fur uncle."

These sorts of threads really make my day, and I thank you for them.

Mark

You are quite welcome and I thank you for adding your thoughts. Mark, hopefully soon you’ll be in a position to add a furbaby to your home. If you have love...there’s plenty out there that need it.

Wow... parallel universe ! : ~ )

Gremlin looks just like Jimmy Joe... my Grandmother's dog (she passed away several years ago and Jimmy Joe followed her about 4 months later).

Bubby looks like my cat Oreo circa early 1990's.... Oreo was given to me by my Grandfather when a female calico had babies in his backyard.

Baby Smokey looks so much like a cat I had in the 1970's - Seymour Socks.... only think Smokey is missing is the socks!

You were chosen by Roxy. What a wonderful story. Your brown Pom is grateful....lol. Smokey (the first pic) is now failing with her legs. Arthritis I guess but, when it gets really bad...well I'll carry her around like you do with yours. Thanks for sharing!

One of my pups, Hairy a broken coat (very broken) Jack Russel Terrier, has been certified as a therapy dog. We made our first trip to a convalescent home this afternoon. Hairy performed his duties spectacularly. He was calm and gracious, friendly and happy to be petted and fussed over. Good dog Hairy!

“Demon Kitteh not pictured, as she no longer casts a reflection.”

Does that mean she is no longer with us or that she has just completely been given over to evil??? LOL! (If she’s no longer with us I’m very sorry :(_)

Zia is alive and well (and somewhat less demonic these days); I just don’t have a recent pic of her uploaded.

Misty and Deimos are an interesting pair: One moment they’ll be at each others throats, the next minute they’ll be snuggling. It’s like living with two little Italians. ;^)

Isn’t that something? You know, pets that I’ve lost seem to surface every now and then. Just driving somewhere and I’ll see one and think “that looks just like Gremlin” or whichever.
