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.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a friend like this waiting . . .

Speaking of pets, don't count on elephants to always be "Gentle Giants". But this is interesting: Elephants may be domesticating themselves:

Elephants are the gentle giants of the animal kingdom. They will often empathetically reach out their trunks to console a distressed sister or attempt to lift up those that are ill and suffering. They recognize the bones of deceased elephants and appear to mourn their dead. They also recognize themselves in mirrors--a sign they're self-aware. These traits may have evolved because elephants have domesticated themselves, according to a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. If so, that would make them the only known animal besides humans and bonobos to have done so. But not everyone sees it as an open-and-shut case.

Proving that any animal, let alone elephants, has self-domesticated is a challenge . .

An elephant at the zoo hit threw a piece of asphalt at my little sister, at some distance, as we were walking along the sidewalk. Hit her in the head. She was just a little girl. Caused a flesh wound. The elephant looked sort of bored. It was a big animal.

Meet The PetMorons

This is Maddie, our latest Portuguese Water Dog, at 4-1/2 months of age. "What made you think this was going to be a short walk?" was the message she was conveying to me. Maddie has the greatest variety in her coloring out of the three PWDs we have had. Her sire was brown, and Mrs. Krebs thinks that will become more evident when she receives her first haircut in the very near future. She began obedience school training this past week.

Krebs v Carnot

Maddie looks like she will be a delightful dog! Are you suggesting that she might be a bit assertive already?

From Mr. Scott:

We have Yellow Dog Two (Maggy) and Black Dog Three (Molly) ensuring we do not get invaded by squirrels from the back yard. They take their duties seriously.

Maggy and Molly do look like they have a serious job to do! A great pair of dogs.

On the farm, first turkey hatchling in the incubator. Frankly, it might look a little better in a few hours. What do you think?

Still, looks better than these.

If you start feeling nostalgic, here a link to last week's Pet Thread, the Ace of Spades Pet Thread, April 15. Includes some nice cows and calves.

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.
