There have been a few "losses" in the HBT pet family recently. Most recently we read about 2nd Street Brewery's loss of Bambino. I thought it would be worthwhile to share amongst ourselves some of the "family members" that help us get through the day-to-day grind.

So how bout it...who's waiting for you when you walk in at the end of the day? And why the heck do you love them so much?

For me:

Most fo you are familiar with "Addie". She's a 4 month-old corgi and just about the happiest animal on the face of the earth. With those big black eys, those huge mouse ears and a stub of a tail that wags incessantly, she can't help but make you forget about a crappy day.

This is the "elder" dog, Ellie. She's a border collie who would rather sleep that herd sheep. At 11 years old, she's taken on the persona of a wise old "soul". I do believe that when her time comes...she'll know it, accept it..and crawl off to a corner to "lie down" quietly. Right now she's pretty pissed at me for having her shaved.

One of my daughters adopted a [email protected] hound last year (brown one on the left. I call her the little brown turd). Gentle, loving, cleanest dog I've ever seen...but dumb as a box of rocks. Whenever she comes home to visit from college, it's like a freakin kennel club around here.

So how about you guy's.

Does it bark? Does it purr? Does if have scales or feathers?

Who's waiting for you at the end of the day?

This is my boy Nathaniel. He's also known as Natty, Fatboy, and occasionally (depending on the amount of alcohol) Senor Cat-pants.

I've had him for about three years now and I have no idea what I would do without him. He sees me off at the door when I leave, greets me when I return, and is simply a cuddlemachine.

If I'm on these forums, chances are he's on my lap (or falling asleep on my mouse-hand:


He plays in his water bowl, puts random things in his food dish (his toys, receipts, hair-ties, occasionally my underwear)...he's strange.

And he's my darlin' boy.

(edited to crop the pictures. forgive the pic quality, by the way. Camera phone. )

It's freakin adorable. He'll also lie down on the mouse on occasion as if he's a chicken trying to hatch an egg.

Here's my 2nd best friend (SWMBO is #1) Jasmine
She's Border Collie/Blue Heeler Cross and will by 17 years old in June, if she make sit that long. She has lost one of her legs since that photo due to a blood clot, but is still getting along very well.

She will be missed greatly when she's gone, but while she's still here, we are making the most of our time with her, and she's spoiled ROTTEN.

This is Sterling, He is going to be 4 yrs this month, first pic is the day we brought him home, the rest are current. He has gone to work with me every day since he was a pup.
SWMBO has 2 cats, Streak & Magick although the one likes me better, as soon as I sit in the recliner he jumps up and lays on me.
