Ace of Spades Pet Thread, July 1

* * *

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.

Meet The PetMorons

Here are a couple of my kitties: Tutti-frutti helping with my homework and research, and Henrietta in the cabinet on the porch. Both are rescues, TF is 15 and H is 11 this year. Nan in AZ

They look like sweethearts.

This is a pic of Angus, a chihuahua, doxie, terrier mix. He has graced the thread before but I am sending him again because he will cross the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday this week. He has been a sweet and faithful companion, and a very diligent supervisor for 13 years. He was confident that our kids reported to him, and he would let us know in small ways he had little faith in our parenting. We were always grateful for his support despite his criticism.

He had an instant impact reducing Boy F.'s autistic behaviors and until today remains the boy's only real friend. Losing Angus is going to be a big hit to our family but we will always be grateful for the love (and supervision) he gave us.

Sincerely, San Franpsycho

We are heartbroken at your loss, with you and your family. Keep in touch.

Earlier this week, Brian sent in a message to Misanthropic Humanitarian about an old post here at the Pet Thread:


These are my three fur buddies. Riley (Siberian Husky) has been with me for 12 years. Shasta (Alaskan Husky) is waiting on the rainbow bridge for three weeks, was part of our family for five short years. Dakota is the mix on the left and is my constant companion for the last 6 years. All are rescues.

The two huskies would start howling for their evening treat come 6:30. They won't stop until my wife gives in. She gives in, happily, I might add.

The mix is my McCullogh mini Mac and chews on just about anything. She once shredded a TV remote, has destroyed shoes, socks and even Kong toys don't last long. - Brian

Because recently:

Today is a bittersweet day in my family as we said goodbye to our precious Dakota Belle. She was over 14 and was suffering from cancer.

My youngest son was there with my wife and I. He was her best buddy. She passed in his arms.

She will forever have a smile and was playful with other dogs. She is with the other dogs in this picture, waiting at the rainbow bridge.

Dogs give until there is nothing left except love. She is in our hearts forever.

Your posts help with the healing.

Thank you.

Thanks for sharing, Brian. Sorry for the loss you and your family are feeling. Hope that re-posting your tribute helps.

Hello love the pet thread, this was our temporary foster cat, Toby. We were only able to take him for a few days unfortunately, but he was a sweet and affectionate little guy who loved watching the birds from our front window. He is still looking for his forever home.

This the Regal Peagal Stanley, his mom feeds him better food that his dad gets. The Great DeNale

So, you're suggesting that he is spoiled?

Meet Bluebell, the best little hen in the best little henhouse in Texas! * She is a two-year-old blue Plymouth tint from Tractor Supply. Almost every day (except when she's molting) Bluebell lays a delicious, nutritious light brown extra-large egg.

She is an excellent forager and like all of her coop-mates, loves to eat bugs including but not limited to spiders, crickets and grasshoppers. When I throw a bug into the coop Bluebell is most likely to emerge victorious from the hen scrum with the snack in her beak, diving in and shoving others out of the way. If another hen grabs the treat, she will pursue her rival far longer than any of the others and almost always gets at least a grasshopper leg or other piece.

Bluebell loves to scratch in the dirt in search of goodies and is one of the most adventurous outside the coop along with my "golden comet" sex link hens. These are the oldest and they are at the top of the pecking order.

Back in February when we had freezing rain for almost a week, Bluebell found a drowned mouse in a large puddle near the coop (so, nicely refrigerated at about 40 degrees) and evaded my attempts to take it from her. As soon as she got the chance she gulped it down, and once it was gone she smugly waddled back to the coop.

I did not collect her eggs for a couple days.

If Bluebell were a baseball player - for the Boston Red Sox, obviously - her walk-on song could not possibly be anything other than this.

* This is what Bluebell the commenter calls her namesake, so if hogmartin and Alex the Chick the hen want to argue they're on their own.

If you start feeling nostalgic, here a link to last week's Pet Thread, the Ace of Spades Pet Threat, June 24

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.
