Ace of Spades Pet Thread, Oct. 28

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.

Scary news: Dog nearly kills owner in attack after being fed THC gummy, Michigan official says

Marijuana is toxic to many pets, dogs included, according to the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Exposure to THC can have seemingly harmless effects on dogs, but it can also cause aggression, as well as restlessness, fast heart rate and a variety of other symptoms.

"The whole point is there's not any warning labels. You hear all about chocolate, you hear all about grapes and raisins," FitzGerald said. "Nowhere does it say, 'Hey, you know what, THC and dogs don't mix.'"

How THC could affect one dog is different than how it might affect another, FitzGerald said. It's not a chance worth taking.

"You don't know what you're going to get. What it comes down to is they should be kept securely away from pets and kids," she said. "Unless your vet says it's OK to give something to your pet, don't do it."

And no magic mushrooms for airline pilots, either.

Meet The PetMorons

By-Tor took these photos of his dog Buddy standing by the food, hoping to be fed first, then an appealing close-up. Strategy didn't work. He got fed last of all the PetMorons.

But he's a good dog. Gets to go on lots of hikes and walks. Makes friends.

Tiny Timy.jpg

From Jewells:

This is Tiny Tim, an 11 year old Rottweiler. He was a stray and staying at the animal shelter for several months before we took him. He has a permanent case of diarrhea much to our dismay. However after a visit they determined he has IBS and will be on a special diet. I haven't met this little fella yet but am hoping to next week.

He looks hopeful for a better life. If his new diet helps, maybe you'll get to see him smile when you meet him.

Smallest PetMorons of the Week



MoMe Butterfy.jpg

Hello Katy, a couple of topical pictures taken last weekend in Corsicana; Butterflies!

There was an oak tree with a crack in it where sap was oozing
out, and these butterflies were swarming it. Not sure of the species, but
caught one with its wings open.

- Tom Servo

Recognize them?

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.
