Good afternoon and welcome to the almost world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread. Thanks for stopping by. Kick back and enjoy the world of animals.

Would you like a treat?

Let's enjoy the world of animals and leave the world of politics and current events outside today. That can wait.

Meet The PetMorons

Loki Scion.jpg


Pippin Ashcat.jpg

From Noman:

I have sent this one a few times before (well maybe around 1,042) AND. YOU. NEVER. PRINTED. IT. One can not achieve that level of loserness without being a long time moronic lurker, or perhaps a very fast typist. So here is try 1,043.

This was Loki, my 235 lb wolfie (when he was fat, then he got down to a fighting weight of 215). A very sweet and gentle boy, looking for what's to eat in my car. Made it to not quite 6, misdiagnosed by the vet with autoimune issues, when it was actually a Lyme variant. Sometimes life sucks, but having had 8 other wolfhounds, William S. had it down when he wrote "Is it better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all."

Also one of Pippin - What evil lurks in the heart of cats....

Awwww . . . Sorry you lost Loki. Looks like he got along well with Pippin.

Tess (2208-2021), my border collie, who had to be put down last summer.

She tolerated being uprooted from our Vermont farm to live in occupied territory (just outside the DC Beltway).

Fortunately, she had her "brother" Captain to boss around until his passing in 2019 from cancer.

Love the blog!

What lovely friends you lost. Thank you for sharing.

My angel is under the tree. Bravo. 100% purebred American alley cat.


An angel. Of course.

This is Badger, He owns a couple of my human friends and is very well named indeed.

He is alleged to be a standard poodle but he is, as they say in the South, touched.

After five years he has learned to not chase thrown pine cones. They bite back. He will however, chase thrown rocks and bite them.

My friend dropped a tree in the yard. After it had finished bouncing and rolling around, his wife released Badger who, promptly ran over and bit the tree.
Except for his odd habit of barking at air and growling at people he knows, he's a very good dog.


He doesn't look like a badger. He looks like a very good dog.

If you start feeling nostalgic, here a link to last week's Pet Thread, the Ace of Spades Pet Thread, December 3

Some special PetMoron stories and photos there.

I closed the comments on this post so you wouldn't get banned for commenting on a week-old post, but don't try it anyway.
