Ace of Spades Pet Thread

Welcome to the almost world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread. Be a good Moron, sit and stay.


*****


L, Elle was kind enough to watch the entire Westminster Kennel Show and send in the following report.

The 141st Westminster Kennel Dog Show took place on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Dog shows are familiar to some of you like MisHum and Kodos the Executioner, both of whom have spent time In this fascinating world competing. My takeaway from watching Westminster is that the judges know nothing. I know this because Best in Show has never been awarded to Labs, Golden Retrievers, Shelties, or Great Danes. Also cankles and bad shoes are pervasive among the female handlers.

This years winners:

Working group - Boxer
Hound group - Norwegian Elkhound
Toy group - Pekingese
Non-Sporting - Miniature poodle
Herding group - German Shepherd
Sporting group - Irish setter
Terrier - Norwich terrier
Best in Show: Rumor, the German Shepherd
Reserve Best in Show: Adrian, the Irish Setter

The Herding group has only won BIS once in 1987. The winner, like this year, was a German Shepherd.

Honorable mention goes to Ace's doggie who won the Master's Agility Championship in the 24" Division, a Border Collie named Kaboom.


What else has been going on in the world of animals. Let's take a look.

Speaking of our 'Ette L, Elle here is another submission from her.

Reason #3,612,789 that dogs are superior to cats, Dogs are moral. Cats not so much.


How cats would behave if allowed into bars.

Nubby, the wonder puppy.

Take it away Larry.

Dear M.H.,

Long time lurker Larry dutifully answering your call for more cat photos.

Meet Ms. Mister. She adopted us ten years old and has made the fundamental transformation to lap cat from outdoor huntress par excellence.

Just to be clear, no, she is not transgendered. Our then three year-old granddaughter named her Mr. Mister, but when a raccoon nearly tore her tail off in her misguided defense of the food bowl that we stupidly used to keep outdoors, the vet corrected our misconception as to her sex. The minor name change ensued.

Thanks to all for making AoS a daily "must read" for me. You have made quitting the increasingly execrable Hot Air easy for me. LOVE the pet thread!

Regards,

-Larry

PS: Obviously a moron, I sent this to the wrong email address last week...

Quite the winter photo submission. Here's the story about this abused dog cutie.

Hi,

I post sporadically as Skree - daily reader, voracious lurker. This is Jasper in his first snow storm.
He loved it. Hes in California and Im on the East coast now so I miss him very much.
You can tell hes an unhappy abused dog from this photo.
Don't judge me.
Cheers,

Lurker Bill submitted this photo. Quite an interesting cat. Check this out.


This is my "Neph-Cat", Max. Max is a Savanah cat, I cat sit for practically every day. My nephew learned the hard way, "Don't let a Jungle Kitteh get bored"! They WILL expose the insides of your couch in an afternoon...

Yes, he is on an leash. Yes, he LOVES to climb things: Trees, cars, vans, people, you name it he will climb it. He also will chase anything (even the neighbors Chesapeake Bay Retriever). In short, he's a handful, but gentle, too. Knows he can hurt you, but won't.

Spoiled cats, living the dream according to Antisocial Justice Beatnik.

Howdy,

Here's a picture Talia comforting Brutus in a hotel room in Augusta during the Hurricane Mathew evacuation some months back.

They were both on their best behavior.

Our last pet for the day is Das Hell Hound.

Heres the BOD pic I promised of my mastiff Das Hell Hound, GoofenHund Extraordinaire. He would like to sincerely thank everyone for the extra opportunity to nom his favored, ahem, treat.

House Occam would like to say- ew. -OL


A big thank you for stopping by today. And a big thank you folks for submitting pet photos and animal stories. If you would like to share something with us, you can at petmorons at gmail dot com. Here's hoping you and your pets have a great weekend.
