We have done a spin of this in the past, changing out avatars to our pets for a week. Once even changing our avatar to our caregiver or spouse...kinda fun, but a little weird, LOL.

Anyways, with Rick's golden, Matt's calico (I believe), and I know Phrannie will post up her new boy and maybe her bestest sheppard...Maybe even Pat will post up one of his three, or Jan and Chargee...

I decided to start a new thread for us with pet's to share and to get off topic just a little.

As Matt has mentioned before, the power of pets and animals on healing and just taking your mind off of your troubles sometimes is amazing..

Ok...so I did the HTML links from Photobucket and they didn't work....only put links in to go to the album....tho doing this worked for me before, I don't know why it's not working now.

You can do it at least two ways that I know of Phrannie...

Using the tree icon (insert/edit image), do the following;

click the tree icon, (for an image you have saved on your computer)

click image URL (the browse button right side)

click the upload (top left)

File (browse..., where you have the file stored)

Upload (this puts it in a folder of yours on CSN) close the box for upload

click the file you want to post, the Insert File (top right)

put in an image description and title, then insert

MOJO

MoJo, Phrannies Big Boy

This will insert the image into your post...

You can click the image and size it also if you want..

You can use the same method with a few differences for Photobucket using the Direct Link is actually better than I first told you.

Indeed, pets enhance our lives in ways beyond description. To those that have furry friends in their lives, they are loved as much as our own human family and offer unconditional love and comfort for those that share their lives.

This is Bobcat Legends Socrates Ulysses. He's a Pixie Bob. He hails from the Legend Cat lineage. The breed is said to have originated in the 80's from a Red Coastal Bobcat and Domestic Barn Cat mating. The kittens from that litter along with a similar breeding were mated and the Pixie Bob was born. Although their DNA does not show the wild in them, I can assure you they have wild looks (bobcat tail and markings) and tendencies (he tries to bury his food when he doesn't finish). Pixie Bobs are also known as dogs in cat's clothes. He loves water (trying to keep him out of the shower or from playing in the toilet is like trying to keep a child from jumping in a puddle). He loves to go for walks and ride in the car. He plays fetch and does tricks for treats. He doesn't meow like other cats, he chirps and chatters. When he's pissed (like at the vet's office), the growl is quite intimidating for sure! He was two years old on Thanksgiving and weighs in at 15 pounds. He still has another year before he reached maturity and we expect him to top out at 18 pounds or so, so yes, he's a big boy.

He brings us smiles, laughs and comfort every day.

I just copied and pasted the URL of the image into the pop-up when I clicked Insert/Edit Image on the post header/menu bar. I have my own website/server, though, so I'm using that rather than Photobucket. If we can figure out a way for you to get the image to me, I can upload it to my server for you and see if that link works when you paste it into the pop-up.

I see an insert image button, so let's see if this works! Here are Abby (tabby) and Sam, our two cats. Abby was putting on weight so we got a second cat so she would get some exercise. Now she's slimmed down... and the new cat, Sam, is ridiculously fat! Don't go by the picture--black is a slimming color on him, and he has strategically hidden his bulk behind Abby. :-)

I've heard that parrots are highly intellegent....and anytime I've seen one on TV, I'm amazed at how much language they seem to understand....so is it true?  Are they as intellegent as they appear to be?  (I've never been around one in person, so I have to ask).

Google “alex and irene pepperberg” and you’ll be surprised how intelligent they are (same goes for corvids like crows and ravens – just that they don’t have the ability to “speak”). Mine is a quaker parrot. He (was DNA’d to determine the sex, as both sexes look the same) is 4 years old (they live around 20 years) learned around 30 words or phrases and sings Alouette (a popular French Canadian children's song). More importantly, he uses most of the words in context, not just mimicry. He says good morning, good night, hello, good bye only in context. He also uses other words or phrases more or less in the right context. He likes the women voices (and shouts when any male in the room is speaking). He also enjoys opera – soprano voices, evidently. His favorite is Queen of the Night aria (from Magic Flute). He is very funny when I turn on dance music; he says “dance!” and moves sideways in the music’s rhythm.

You mean if I come see you right now I get to meet Lola?  How cool.  Bless Mojo and bring a sugar cube for Waylon.

Yes!!!  You come over right now, you can meet Lola....and she'd love to meet you, too (I've never had a really friendly dog before, it's fun to not have to instruct people to not try to be friends with the dog until the dog decides it's ok). 

There was a time, not that long ago when it was 3 horses, 3 dogs, and a cat....the zoo is shrinking as I get older.

Well, Penut was quite a dog. She was the second Golden who taught herself to dive. She actually saw others dog dive at the off-leash park. The park had the river (stream) running thru it. Not the best of photos. I photoshoppe the ball, making it more yellow. Otherwise the photo is untouched.

My mom has an Affenpinscher and I visit her often so I get my share of the pet loving. Some day I'm hoping to have a horse (outside pet is best)....after the kids are through college and I have some money....LOL.

Thanks for sharing your special friends....they are lovely.

Goldendoodles (and Labradoodles) are allergy friendly dogs.  They were bred expresssly (labradoodles) for sevice dogs for people who had allergies.  There is no dander or shedding.  So, no reason to hold back now!!

Labradoodle History Labradoodles are a relatively new breed of dogs that were first bred by Wally Cochran in 1988. Wally Cochran, of The Royal Guide Dogs in Victoria Australia, was prompted to breed the Labradoodle after receiving a request from a blind woman living in Hawaii. She needed a guide dog that wouldn’t aggravate her husband’s allergies. Hair and saliva samples from 33 different poodles in Hawaii were sent to the couple to see if the dogs would cause an allergic reaction in the husband; they all did. Wally then asked the manager of The Royal Guide Dogs about crossing one of their Labrador Retrievers with a Standard Poodle. He agreed, and so the first Labradoodles were bred. There were only three puppies in the first litter; only one of which didn’t bother the husband’s allergies. The other two puppies also lived useful lives, one as a Remedial Dog, and the other as a Guide Dog. There was a waiting list of people wanting to puppy walk Guide Dogs, but when these new cross breeds needed homes no one wanted to take them in. Wally knew it was important that these puppies socialize with a family, so he aired a story on Channel 9 in Melbourne about “the new breed of Guide Dog. In the show he first coined the word “Labradoodle”. Soon the phone rang incessantly with people wanting to puppy walk the amazing new “breed” of Guide Dogs. Wally bred Labradoodles to other Labradoodles, calling the new puppies “Double Doodles”. He then bred Double Doodles to Double Doodles and called the offspring “Tri Doodles”. Out of the 31 Labradoodles that were bred at Royal Guide Dogs, 29 made it as Guide Dogs. People fell in love with the new breed, and soon there was an overwhelming demand for them that was not being met. Because of their immense rise in popularity, people began crossing any Labrador with any poodle without any regard to genetics, bloodline, or temperament and calling the puppies “Labradoodles. The result was an unpredictable variety of puppies with various physical characteristics. The evident need for breeders to develop a standard for this fascinating dog gave rise to the establishment of two Breeding and Research Centers for Labradoodles in Australia. In 1989, Rutland Manor Labradoodle Breeding and Research Center was organized in Darnum, Victoria. They used only health tested Labradors, Poodles, and 3rd generation Labradoodles. The Tegan Park Labradoodle Breeding and Research Centre located in Seaspray, Victoria was established at the same time. It also carefully controlled its breeding program, using only the finest genetically healthy dogs. In 1998, Tegan Park introduced the “Miniature” Labradoodle to the public. When these were crossed with the standard Labradoodle, the medium Labradoodle resulted. Thus three sizes are currently distinguished; the miniatures are 14 – 17 inches tall, the mediums are 18 – 21 inches, and the standards are 23 – 26 inches. Labradoodles from the early generations had a large diversity in coat types. Some of the curlier coated puppies grew up to be low allergy, while others started out low allergy but by 8 months had shed their coats, which was replaced by a coat that was not low allergy. Some puppies grew up to look like Golden Retrievers with a thinner coat, and others looked similar to a Labrador. speech service book report writing case study help The breeding centers selectively bred away from the shedding coat and now, shedding coats are rare. Labradoodles are now bred to have either the truly Fleece coat or the Wool Curly coat. The fleece coat has a distinctly soft fleecy feel unlike any other dog coat. It hangs in loose loopy spirals like that of the Angora goat. The Wool Curly coat resembles that of a poodle and feels like a soft woolly sweater. Both coat types are non-shedding and allergy friendly. The coats come in a variety of colors including: Black, Silver, Cream, Apricot Cream, Chalk, Gold, Red, Apricot, Chocolate, and Café. Labradoodles are sociable, friendly, non aggressive, and extremely intuitive. Their intelligence and high trainability make them well suited for guide dogs, therapy dogs, and other assistance dogs. Their non allergic coats make them popular among people who have not been able to enjoy pets because of their allergies. This new breed is bound to become even more popular as more people learn about the lovable Labradoodles.

Thanks for the info. This is absolutely amazing! I think I'd be better suited with one of the smaller ones. 

How hard was it for you to get your Goldendoodle?

Sofie weighs in at 35 lbs and is a perfect size for us.  Small enough to sit in your lap and big enough to really be a dog.  Coming from probably the two smartest breeds out there she was a joy to train.  We got her at 8 weeks and at 10 weeks she was, except for the really rare accident, house trained.  Leash trained by two weeks later and heel trained by six months.  She just wants to please (just like a golden).

 

I found her breeder on the internet, they are all over the country, and since she was local I got to sit and play with the puppies to pick out the one I wanted.

 

Good luck, you won't be disapointed.

If I can ever figure out how to post my pic, I have a mini labradoodle and he is only 18lbs. He is my sweet sweet boy! I got extremely lucky with him. I actually found him in a park. He was homeless, starving, both back legs and pelvis were broken and he came up to me at my sons ball game and laid at my feet for over 3 hours! When the games were over I got up and started to walk to the car and he hobbled his way behind me. I never said a word to him at the game because I knew my heart would be broken when I had to leave the little guy. But this little man followed me ever so slowly to my car. He had to drag his back legs, it was a pitiful sight. So my husband, who was watching the game from the parking lot says "what the heck is that?"
Needless to say we put him in the car. I honestly thought he was going to die during the night. I hoped he'd make it thru the weekend so I could take him to the vet and see what his chances were. I prepared my boys that he probably would die but we would at least give him food and a warm place to drift away. Well a year later and he's still with us!!! I love him so much and he is so loyal. The ultimate diagnosis was broken back legs, shattered pelvis, backed up intestines because he couldn't bear down to poop because of all the broken bones. He was severely malnourished and he had a nasty urinary infection. The vet said it appears as if someone beat him and it looks like they used a baseball bat or something similar. That still breaks my heart and pisses me off at the same time. Who hurts animals? UGH!!!
He and I are very close and I really feel like he was meant to come into my life just when he did....right before I got sick.
He is an amazing pet and he doesn't shed at all! Not even a little bit. My husband wears a dark uniform and the first time he saw Howard jump up on it he freaked out but not a single hair! My son has severe allergies and Howard doesn't bother him at all.
Trust me you would love a doodle, golden or lab.

What a touching story. I actually got teared up reading it. Bless your heart that you took him in and now he is your little buddy. I'd love to see him if you ever get it figured out to post. I'm thinking very hard about this... : )

....I am a complete sucker for heartwarming rescue animal stories....and this little guy sounds like a total gem of a pup.  I LOVE you for taking him in, getting him fixed up and giving him the life he deserves. 

Oh and don't forget the "original" in all these mixes.....the Poodle itself....and believe it not....they aren't near as expensive as the crossbred Doodles.  After my 45 years of German Shepherds (or as I call them German Shedders).....not having dog hair as a condiment has been wonderful!!  LOLOLOLOL
