Morning, thought it was time for a week dedicated to our Pet care givers....

I have two chocolate labs (sisters), Kali & Jasmine...they were there with me through thick and thin. So this week is dedicated to them.

Buster was my daughters bull dog, a female of only 7 years....

Love you guys & gals,
John

This is a great idea John. As all of us with pets know..they helped us through our treatments with their unconditional love and cuddles. I have a yellow and a black lab and they never left my side during treatment, not that they did before ;-) If I napped on the couch they were there with me, when I went to bed they slept with me, they were always at my side.

Will try to post the picture of Jughead, my yellow lab. I don't always have good luck when I try to change my profile picture - lol.

Stay well,
Glenna

Just took this picture this morning, Jughead was all curled up with my afghan on the couch...notice the guilty look??? He knows he's not supposed to be on the couch - lol

He's probably just sticking his tongue out at Meathead and saying..nananan... :)

I'm sure that's probably what he's doing, he does love to pick on Meathead ;-)

This is one of my cats Jack, I think he sleeps more than I. He was my sleeping buddy through treatments and kept me company at home.

I use to have two black labs, picked them up from a lab rescue unit here in Maryland. They have passed but man do I love labs. Too bad the wife isn't a dog lover ;(

In my photo is Cady, the mule. She's carried me through thick and thin. Actually, when I got her, her name was Katie, but that's my daughter's name, so we had to change it. Now the mule thinks we all have a speech impediment.

This Saturday we're going to a Play Day with our horse group, and I'll be riding around with eggs on spoons and such.

Great idea, John. Here is Bodie, my four legged caregiver. Not the strongest or smartest, but totally devoted. Don't know what he'll do when I get a job, and have to leave him every day. In the meantime, he makes sure I get outdoors to get my vitamin D and exercise, makes sure I don't overeat by sharing whenever I fix chicken, green beans, carrots and sweet potatoes (but NEVER broccoli), and on the days that I forget, he reminds me that I'm useful and tells me I'm wonderful.

Here's Elvis and Blaze. My two best buds. No longer with us, but puts a smile on my face every time I think of them.

I'm assuming it's true what they say about looking like your pet. If I hadn't read the title of this thread I wouldn't have realized it was about pets. I just assumed it was another one started by Skiffen. I couldn't tell the difference, I thought it was you John (well maybe she's a bit cuter than you).

I'm thinking about volunteering at a local no-kill shelter so I'm sure I'll have a new buddy soon.

Give all your pets a hug and scratch your spouse on the belly for me!

Positive thoughts to all!

Greg

She does kind of have my nose....LOL, with a few freckles added.

I'll have to post one of Ebony also this week...she was our Black female lab...she taught us all of the lab tricks.

Kali & Jazz never (hardly) get over because Ebby taught us well.

Ebony passed a few years ago, but she is still in our thoughts daily and will always be with us in heart and spirit. When she passed it was one of the hardest emotions to get through, she was truly a huge part of the family.

Best,
John

Don't know if you could tell but Blaze was a choc lab also. Prettiest dog I've ever seen, not the sharpest tool in the shed but that's been said about me also. She was my fishin' partner. Elvis, the German Shepard, was a big (130#) sweetheart. He used to let the neighborhood kids ride him around like a pony. Miss 'em both!

Thanks John, but I already cropped it down and I have tried 6 other pictures and I just flat can't get it to change. I have 2 black labs, 1 fox terrier, 1 jack russel, and 1 half pit half dalmation. All but 1 have found their way to my house in the country. My Dog is a black lab that is AKA and I bought him. The rest are really my wife's (kind of). We have had a beautiful Rot that walked up almost dead, one of the best dogs I have ever had, and has since died of cancer and one blind mut that my wife brought home and it was like one of those toys that run into something and turn and go the other way, and I told my wife hey that dog is blind! Just a few in a long line of animals that have found their way here. We won't mention how many cats she has and has had.

Best,
Steve

Steve,
I had same issues. One of these young kids outta be able to help or maybe Skiffen (yeah, that was an "old guy" joke). But I think someone suggested: delete your old pic, then shut down computer. Fire it back up and then upload the new pic. Worked this time for me.

Kathy, puma is very pretty.

Here is my second cat Silver. He is tubby like a buhda and is a huge pest, he always wants your attention and is very vocal. So I often refer to him as a budha-pest, like the city get it...har..har :)

Very cool, great to hear from all of these pets, and their better halfs...and see your pets as well.

Alright Greg53, judging from your name you only have me by a few months...LOL. BTW, knowing how much of a ham that labs are. I would have guessed the lab was Elvis and Blaze the shepard.

As for changing photos, I've found that once you have the one you want to post equal or less than 150 x 150 like John said. You delete your old one, refresh your browser. This should take your old one out. Then browse and post your new one, again refresh and you might have to refresh a few times. Then your new one should show up.

First a silly question: How do i attach a pic?
Does your dog know youve put this pic on. It's a bit "in your face" don't u think?

LOL...Kali is always in your face, especially if your are eating...but she's a kissy face girl... In this photo though, she's a Brown Noser....

Posting, go to My CSN Space (upper left TAN menu area), then EDIT, and then PICTURE... The instruction above should help you from there.

Sorry I'm in tech support couldn't resist.

- Under CSN on the left side of your screen click My CSN Space
- Select the Edit tab next to the My CSN Space tab
- Click on Picture
- Click on choose file and browse out to an image.
- The image has to be 150x150, you can edit this in Microsoft paint by using the resize feature, pixels

Hope this helps!

I finish mine this week, B.S.N.T, network technology, I specialized instead of going for the general IT degree. I wasn't too sure about the curriculum at my school, didn't like the selection of classes. I deal manly with networks so I figured it wouldn't hurt.

I don't think you can go wrong in IT....kudos for staying up on it during your ordeal....

LOL, I received my AA after the Marines in 1980, just finished my BS in 2006. It was a little rough toward the end. Working full time and taking three classes a quarter for the last two years or so.

Okay, I have issues with the whole photo thing:

I have three cats, the yellow one is Puma, he is 21 pounds and my best buddy. I have a 17 pound spotted black/white cat name spot. He thinks he is a dog and will pull on your pants legs and shake it. He will sit and the corner and stare into space for hours. The gery kitten that show up on my post now is my baby. She is only 5 pounds. I got her when she was less then one pound. Her name is Firefly and she loves to talk on the phone.

I really like this post. It is fun to see the other family memebers.

Kathy, Spot, Puma and Firefly

meow..I seem to be in the minority. This is Lucy and she is a great lap kitty.
However, sometimes, she bites. But then don't we all.

He's just plain Duce to us. He was/ is a constant companion to Bob. He spent an awful lot of time on the bed on the many days that Bob napped away.
This is such a great idea - a fun way to honor our faithful companions.

I'm not sure if the pic will be too big for site but giving it a try. Here is Rita rat terrier & Tito god only knows! I have 2 very elderly chi's -- Sassy 18yrs & Patch 16-1/2yrs. Also, Junior a min-pin, Buck a min-rat terrier & a female black cat that Rita brought home in her mounth when it was a tiny, tiny kitten that was abandoned by the mother. No I'm not a hoarder, just a pet lover who knows she is max'd out.

Skiffin16 --- you ought to enter your photo in a contest because it is a real winner.

I see photo is still Mikey ... I'll try again.
