Ace of Spades Pet Thread



A Happy New Year to all of you Morons and Lurkers. Set the cheer aside and enjoy the world of pets here at the almost world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread.


A Little of This. A Little of That.

Amazing video..........

(H/T Shibumi)


Swimming dog, sort of....... H/T Hank Curmudgeon


Very interesting. The Ultimate Dog Friendly Business Resource


If you have ever had a dog, These memes will bring back some memories.

A H/T from our friend Jane D'Oh Naughty puppy.

A Moron with a blog that had a wonderful pet thread.

The question of nature vs. nurture is examined here. Does she think as a kitten or as a dog? Rosie the kitten living with Huskies.

An interesting H/T from Judith. I saw an Idaho license plate today. Never seen one before, I live in New Jersey. It had a dog on it.

I don't believe I've seen a license plate with a pooch either.

Dratts, missed the Christmas cutoff date. Well, hope your holiday was as special as ours. Got so many toys and treats. And we got to see our first snow. It's much more fun than rain. Geddy, Charlie and Bailey. {No name provided}

A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your Dobbies. They look very merry! Thank you for sharing.



Longtime lurker here. This is Bella, a rescue who came to us 2 Christmases ago. She now thinks that she is the most decorative ornament in our collection.

Well, I don't disagree with Bella, she is a wonderful ornament. To adopt an older dog is a wonderful deed. Hope you folks had a Merry Christmas. Thank you for sharing today.



These are my kitties TJ (Tabby) and Moose (Siamese). TJ was a feral kitten who just showed up and became completely enamored with Moose. My yard has a cat fence, but it evidently is not very good at keeping cats out! TJ could not be kept out of the yard, and began following Moose into the house to eat, but he would not allow any of us to approach him. When it became evident that he wasn't going away, and that he didn't belong to anyone, we trapped him, had him fixed, and began to gentle him. It took some time, since he was a bit old to be easily tamed, but eventually he became a wonderful house cat. - Tony

That is a wonderful story Tony. That's pretty cool that Moose had a groupie! It sounds like TJ's domestication was a chore of love.



You generously posted a picture of my super mutt rescue dog Clover when we got her in June. The Great Dane is my granddog, Mars. She is as sweet as she is big. It isn't unusual for her to smile like she is in this picture with Santa. - Michelle.

My goodness that photo is so sweet. Hope you and the pups had a Merry Christmas. Was Santa able to get up and walk after that pose? We appreciate your submission, thanks.

Schrödinger is the last of 5. People have stopped throwing kittens out at my house. Except for Schrödinger. Found him between the buildings at work. He fit snugly in the palm of my hand. He's not so small now, at his biggest he weighed 30 pounds. The pictures I am sending are how I arrived at his name. He never met a box he didn't like. - Robert

Thank you for all the photos, it was really tough to pick out Schrodinger's photo. He sounds like he lives in a great household. Thanks for sharing.



Long time lurker and repeat contributor. I always wanted a golden
retriever but am too gimpy to do it justice.
So several years ago I settled on a ceramic one. My daughter just lost
her eight year old flatcoat retriever
and replaced her with this beautiful 3 month old English Cream named
Cali. Love the Pet thread. Merry Christmas,Intruder Driver

Well the ceramic retriever is certainly easier to take care of than a real dog. Not as cuddly though. Your daughter's pup is beautiful.



This is Oliver. He is a three-year-old, intact, Royal Standard Poodle. I drove 13 hours round-trip to get him two days before Christmas.
My previous two Standards died one and two years ago respectively of old age. I was ready for a new friend.

A happy healthy and prosperous new year to the horde! - Le Garde Vieux

It certainly didn't take Oliver long to get comfy at his new home. I suspect the house was pretty quiet after your last 2 pals passed. Happy to hear you have a new friend. Thank you for Oliver's story.

Hi MisHum,

JackStraw thought I'd never be able to get a picture of both my dogs with their Christmas hats. Hah! Fat lot he knows. In fact, they liked their hats so much they slept in them. This pic was taken Christmas morning, when they were exhausted from the revelry the night before, and as you can see, it is completely un-retouched.

The big guy in front is Murphy, and pulling up the rear is Whiskey.

Hope you had a very merry Christmas, Best regards, IrishEi

Fantastic dogs who wear their hats quite well. I'm surprised that your dogs sleep on the floor and not on their very own couch. Hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas.


A fantastic group of pets today! Wonderful stories at the links submitted. Thank you for making the Pet Thread a success.

Do you have something you wish to share? You can reach us here at petmorons at gmail dot com.

Here's hoping you have a great week!!!
