Ace of Spades Pet Thread, March 25

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 relax a little with the animals and leave the world of politics and current events outside today.

Once when I was growing up, my family stayed in a log cabin-type motel in West Yellowstone. (Incidentally, log cabin construction is earthquake-resistant, which was a good thing in West Yellowstone).

Anyway, we kids decided to walk into town, and two big dogs from the motel decided to accompany us. We did not invite them. They decided on their own.

Everyone we encountered seemed to think they were wolves, and most of them slowly moved away from us. But I guess they weren't wolves. They were dogs. Still, they gave us sort of an unearned feeling of power.

Meet The PetMorons



I'm a long time lurker, a VERY long time. I've posted in the comments sparingly but I should contribute more. I post under the nic Hank Scorpio.

This is Archie. We rescued him the day before he was scheduled to be put down. He was a little older than what people want in a dog and he has a cyst on top of his head, there was just something about him that compelled us to snatch him up in 2018. He is very friendly dog and pretty smart. But don't let the cuddly appearance and friendly nature fool you, Archie is a jerk. He's demanding and stubborn, he loves to wake up my wife at 3AM to be let out. And the barking, my God the barking.

He's family now, follows my wife everywhere and I get the sense that if anyone tried to harm her or our kids, he would do something about it.

Well, Archie looks like he could be very protective!

Coal, our Bombay, AKA the Poco Pantera, likes to climb into the Neater Feeder while I fill the water dish. He's such a funny boy!

Cheers leber (the backwards rebel).

He looks very dignified for a cat in a dish. And I see a friend coming around the corner . . .

from Shelgel

This Kai he has a very rough life. Keep him in your prayers. ? He was adopted from as pup from a pet rescue from the reservation. I have heard him bark maybe 3 times in over the year+ we have had him.

He does look like he has a tough life!

We lost Sunny!

Not really. We put new flooring in the bedrooms. Great camouflage!


Sunny's eyes really stand out in that environment!

Here are our smooth fox terrier brother and sister, Bonnie and Clyde. They love people and hate squirrels.


Wow! What a great photo! Makes me want to be their friend.

If you start feeling nostalgic, here a link to last week's Pet Thread, the Ace of Spades Pet Thread, March 18

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.
