• A new pup :)

    From Janis Kracht@1:261/38 to All on Tue May 25 10:01:54 2021
    Yesterday our yellow lab mix died from Cancer, we knew this was coming but it sure didn't make it any easier. Indy (http://www.filegate.net/gallery/pups/ima ges/000_1286.JPG) was over 13 years old and we are glad he is now without pain and suffering.

    We going to meet a new pup this evening, a female german shepherd, Gia. She's too young for adoption right now, but I'm looking forward to cuddling tonight
    :)

    Take care,
    Janis

    I'm so sorry. Cancer is how I lost Felix also.

    I'm sure Indy would approve!

    Hi Sean!

    Yesterday our yellow lab mix died from Cancer, we knew this was coming
    but it sure didn't make it any easier. Indy
    (http://www.filegate.net/gallery/pups/images/000_1286.JPG) was over 13
    years old and we are glad he is now without pain and suffering.

    I'm so sorry. Cancer is how I lost Felix also.

    Yes, I remember. How hard it is to lose a loved pet... :( I still cry every time I think of the pain he must have felt through it all. Our vet is great and gave me painkillers for Indy but at the end, Indy wouldn't even eat them :(

    Thank you Sean!

    Been there, done that. Pets are like one of the family, and to some folks, their pets are their kids. At least they can run around naked and have their pictures taken, without someone saying that's pornography. :P

    Depeneding on the breed, they can be hard to housebreak and stubborn (dachshunds). But, once they get to know their owners, they're very loyal.

    As for him dropping dead critters in the floor, he felt he had to "earn
    his keep". Our cat would do the same with birds and rodents.

    Hi Daryl,

    (http://www.filegate.net/gallery/pups/ima ges/000_1286.JPG) was over 13
    years old and we are glad he is now without pain and suffering.

    Yes, they are. He was certainly like one of "the kids"... and a goofy one sometimes at that...

    We still have his sister here, Sophie, she'll probably outlive both Ron and I <grin>.

    Yes, some dogs are hard to housebreak, then others are so easy to train. Our last shephard was extremely easy to train. She was a female like Gia so I don't expect any problems with Gia with her training. Boy I don't know why I dislike the name Gia so much, but I do. I can't wait to get her here so I can come up with a name that "fits" her :)

    hehe.. we had a cat once that ate all the wildlife in our area... he only left a little tuft of fur, likely the end of the tail :(

    Take care,
    Janis

    They will listen to your complaints, and kiss you (better make sure they didn't lick certain areas beforehand :P ), and never complain about you taslking too much.

    We still have his sister here, Sophie, she'll probably outlive both Ron and I <grin>.

    And probably wonder "who's going to feed me??". :P

    Have a poll in the FIDOGazette for a name. :)

    The cat sees the bottom of their food bowl in a small circle hole in
    the middle of their food dish (which is surrounded by food). Then, they
    are on the phone to the SPCA, saying you're starving them to death.

    I think more importantly they seem to know when you need that kiss :)

    haha.. sounds like a dog for sure :)

    Nah, I'll take a look at her first :) :)

    This is true. That's actually a begging instinct, though...and the
    "humping" is a "dominance move" (they are the alpha male or female...not
    you <G>). Yet, in one meme, the husband is across from his wife in the
    living room. She's scowling at him, and he thinks to himself (as the dog
    is humping his leg) "At least someone wants to have sex with me". <G>

    And probably wonder "who's going to feed me??". :P

    haha.. sounds like a dog for sure :)

    The cats are even worse. Centuries ago, the Egyptians worshipped the cats...and the felines never forgot it. <G>

    Nah, I'll take a look at her first :) :)

    Just don't call her late for dinner...just like us humans. <G>

    I've got a lot of cat memes over here.
