Pets and working animals too.

Here's Alice watching the Purina Dog Show tonight.



ETA:  She's a 2 year old basenji/lab mix, she's a handful but we love her.  (She came from the rescue with the name.  It's not my first choice, but I didn't have the heart to change it.)

Shadow.  Stinkpot.  Doofus.  Snookums.  Idjit.

She's either running around outside like a total nut job chasing falling leaves, protecting us from the psycho geese, treeing squirrels, killing dead possums, tracking dead odors, doing her best sled dog imitation or... sleeping.  Aka recovering.  Which takes a heckuva lotta time.

Don't bother me, I'm tired.  Go away.  Just put it in my bowl - I'll get to it later.  No, I don't need to pee.  Sheesh.

Max, my first show horse about 2 years ago:


I'll have to put the pictures of my new baby, Polly, up. She's a 5 year old (almost 6) Canadian Warmblood :)

Magnolia - named so because we got her from the NOLA pound in 1976.  She outlived the hamster and got to go just about every place we went.

This is Duke, my first dog, a miniature pinscher I adopted at the age of 5-ish, put to sleep this March, after 10 years with me.  For a toy dog, he was a pretty good hiker and camper.




This is Bailey, an 18 month old Airedale Terrier I adopted this October.


Can you imagine looking at this face every day for 16 months and then getting rid of her?

Pup looks more like a Banjo. Bailey just doesn't fit. But Whatever.

I had one of those. It is pissed off and stays horny. Not to mention it urinates on everything. I would reconsider.

My Beauty and her Beast.  Raven has been with me since black Friday, 2003.  She was a young adult when we got her, so she's probably pushing 11-12 years old.  This Rott/Lab mix doesn't like men very much and after almost a decade together, she still barely tolerates me.  That said, she'd die before harm comes to my wife or daughter, so I still love the disagreeable old lug.  My ex-wife was her favorite person on Earth.  When she was leaving, she refused to take Raven, telling me, "She can go back to the shelter, can't she?"  I knew then that she was heartless and or crazy.  Any way, Raven made it through that heartbreak, made it through 3 years of me working too many hours as a single dad and this summer made it through a move and has settled on my new wife as an acceptible "Mom" in her world.  My wife thinks she's the cutest "bear" ever and has taken more pictures in the last 5 months than I did in the prior 9 years.

This evil SOB is my wife's cat, Mike.  Mike is a 22lb menace to society that is being held in this position only because my brother-in-law is about 260lbs and utterly unconcerned by the low rumbling growl that Mike was emitting at this moment.  The cat is belligerent, obese and prone to random violence.  On three occasions he had smacked Raven on the nose.  On the last occasion she lunged at him and finally sent the message that a 90lb dog won't tolerate being hit by a 22lb cat.  That has made the house a bit more peaceful.

I enjoyed this.
I also like belligerent fat cats.

My black cat is belligerent.  If you don't feed him on command in the mornings, he will bite your ankle.
