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

callie m medic.jpg

Good evening;

This was our cat Callie. She was a backyard sort-of feral that charmed her way into the house. We notice she had abnormal respiratory effort and took her to the vet, where we learned she'd had some trauma in the past leaving her with one functional lung and a mess of scar tissue in her chest. We had roughly three excellent years with her, discovering her love of my wife's hair scrunchies, naps in freshly dried laundry, unsecured jewelry, and salted butter. She passed unexpectedly last month in my wife's arms; she is greatly missed.

I'm a long-time lurker, but you can use my nom de internet "Mausermedic".

So sorry that you have lost beautiful Callie. She was lucky to have you and your wife to love her.

tippy t s mar.jpg

From Jewells:

This is Tippy, an 11 year old terrier mix. A lady paid her neighbor $50 if she would let her take Tippy to a shelter. Tippy spent most of her life chained outside. She is very energetic for an 11 year old. She hasn't had much interaction with people and it shows. When I met her last week, she was jumping all over me and getting in my face to give kisses. We gently pushed her away and said no and she calmed down. So .. she's trainable even at 11 years old. Sad story but a happy ending because of Shep's Place.

An inspirational story! Looks like Tippy is still full of life. Thanks for sharing Tippy's story and photo.

My new granddog . . . . My daughter's third dog. His name is Frank. My daughter acquired Frank while her husband was away on a business trip. They are still married.

Conservative Hippie.

A classic story and a classic photo. Frank is adorable. Thanks for sharing.

My Conor Frenchie pup and friend as they guard the property!

Thanks for the variety of specialty threads you provide for the Horde, of course, Conor and I are devotees of the Pet Thread, but all of them are good. As an aside, the daffodils in several different locations here have apparently survived the winter again even though they always seem to die back in July and try to convince me I will never see them again. Yet at the end of January or in early February, there they are again.


Conor has learned well from his friend! He looks like a wonderful guard dog.

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.
