This is Katie. Really she's not very smart but she is sweet. She does a happy dance whenever I walk in the door. If you ever met her she would run up to you, turn around, and sit on your feet (not at your feet, on your feet). Then she would lean against you, look up, and demand that you pet her. I bet you would too because she's so cute.

My dog runs when we hold up a camera. He knows phone and camera and runs away when someone holds up a phone to take a picture.
maybe i'll post an ad:

Single male seeks double-jointed supermodel who owns a brewery and grows her own pot. Access to free concert tickets a plus!

Here's Riley. He's around 15 years old and absolutely the best cat I've ever had.

BierMuncher, I also wanted to tell you that I showed SWMBO the picture of Addie. She absolutely loves Corgis. Or next pet will most certainly be a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

As posted in another thread, here's our big, badass Dachsund, George:

We adopted him from shelter about 3 weeks ago, and all is good. He's super good natured, but a little hound through and through. He the perfect dog, until he starts tracking a scent....then he might as well be deaf. We thought he was just a mild mannered little weiner dog until he caught a rabbit in the back yard the other day...
May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

Sunka, a cockappo girl, adopted 4.5 years ago, "Therapy (as in oncology) Dog" on a picnic, on vacation.

Play time back at the cottage! (Did I say play?!!)

Funny close up. She can be so goofy.

Not pictured are departed friends, Boo-E and Pearl. I have their tags on a necklace and wear them often while on vacation.

This is Oscar, but I usually call him "Bigdog"

This is Sally Gooden, about the sweetest dog you'll ever meet. What's not to love about a face like that?

If I'd known I was gonna live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself!

Oh, we have one other pet, but due to possible illegalities I will not self-incriminate.

Seeing all of these pics makes me feel better. Still hard but we'll survive.The wife and I were sitting around yesterday going through abunch of old pictures looking for ones of Bambino with the kids so we could send them to them. Started talking about all the stuff he used to pull when he was younger Found some pictures I didn't even remember until I saw them again. Some of his better shots(sorry can't post,all hard copies from pre digital age) Sitting at the dining room table as in my chair, wearing his big white plastic collar after getting stiches in his tail(looked like a satelite dish), laying on our bed, rassling with me on the floor. Remebering the time he almost knocked me out when we butted heads playing on the floor and the time he tried to jump into bed with us during a thunder storm.We were laughing and crying at the same time. We'll get another dog eventually, but we'll never replace him
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.
