When things get stressful on the internet, post pictures of pets.

My dog loves boating!

And i am sure he is your bright spark! Such an adorable age...my granddaughter was born Sept. 2011 so they are about the same age. I posted a picture of her in the post Show ourselves (I am a proud grandma). Post some updated pics of him when you get a chance. You all have been through so much...thinking of you ~Ann

Especially loved the last one with your daughter.  Such a brilliant picture - so happy for you and your family.

We are all very happy to have our little guy and to have my daughter doing so well. Just need to get her completely well again so she can raise her son. That's my prayer.

the pictures to putting in a great group pf muitiples! Buddy, Rascal, Smokey and Juliet are all lucky to have you. Spud has such a lovely and unusual face.  It is very hard to lose them isn't it. The picture of your daughter and her family is priceless.  Glad that you learned how to insert the pictures. -- Cynthia

I love them all, fur babies and human! Yes, it's hard to lose them. Our pets are our family. The photo of my daughter and her family turned out great, even though it was a photo booth spur-of-the-moment thing! She was even toting her 5FU fanny pack. They used it on their Christmas card. And her husband's aunt blew it up to poster size and posted them in the yard and all over the house where we all had Thanksgiving dinner. It was great.

You have a great family, fur and otherwise!  All very beautiful.  And I love the stories about how you got them.  We've ended up with so many strays in our family over the years...a friend once said that we must have a big neon "sucker" sign visible only to animals flashing over our heads.  Oh well.  Sometimes somebody just needs a family and you can't say no.  AA

I think I must have that SUCKER sign, too! I love animals. All animals. They are wonderful. I love my daughter and her family, too! Better not leave that out.

... That's me and my pony "Donna" way back somewhere in the 1970ies. I got her as I was 6 years and she 7 weeks old (my grandma had to raise her by bottlefeeding her) and we spent 16 years together. Then she got ill and my (grand)parents had to decide to put her down while I was away doing my exams.So I got that news only afterwards and could not say goodbye.

I still miss her today :-(

Your horse was beautiful.  Looks like you're just lounging around bareback?  My dad had horses when I was  a kid, but they were total nags.  No saddle meant they dumped you on the ground and walked on you.  Your Donna must have been much better behaved!

... thoght her whole life that she was a human or a dog. She could open doors and walk up stairs, she stole sausages from the grill and ate them and followd us without leash when we went for a walk in the forest. Perhabs all this because she was taken fro her mother when 7 weeks old and raised by hand. And yes, I rode her most time without saddle :-)

Great diversion.  I love all the pet pictures.  Your dog is very intent - is he looking for dinner?  My dog is with me in my profile picture.  Tri is a sheltie - I've had six of them over the years - love the breed.  He's my bud!

This is a near post!

Had to put our Sheltie down the beginning of December :-( but now we gained "Simon " a male cat!
He was at Petco and my daughter brought him home.He loves his new beds and sleeping in the front closet
and my dresser. Also likes to drink water from the bathroom faucet.

We believe he has Dexter's spirit. He sniffs like a dog!

It's so nice to have him around but I still miss Dexter.
Those Shelties are very special but he was a little stubborn and unruly. Lol

Don't have pictures on kindle to load.

Great post!

I too had to recently put another sheltie down - Blue.  He supported me through my treatment.  After my treatment ended, I found out he too had cancer - I had to put him down.  He was really suffering.  Now he's at peace - miss you Blue!

left by Dexter.  I wish that our pets could live longer and have always felt sad that when you get them you just always know that the love affair will have to be cut short. -- Cynthia

I couldn't figure how to add text. This was a great idea. Sorry about the bad photography. The first is a picture of 3 bay ducks and 3 baby chickens we just got. The second picture is of one of our 2 weimeraners. The third one is a picture of our parrot. You might have noticed him on my shoulder on my avatar.

and so glad that you posted them.  When I was a child we found a baby duck and it was at that age where it attached and followed me everywhere. Her name was Miss Daisy.  I can just imagine all these ittle critters in a row following you about.  Your weimeraner is lovely. -- Cynthia

AMAZING!  Looks like you dipped him in neon paint.  I've read that parrots are extremely smart and make good pets.  They live a long time too, don't they?

They are extremely smart. They say it is like having a 5 year old for the next 50 years which is true. They only make good pets to the right person. They need a LOT of attention. They can let out some defening screams and like to bite. You can train them not to scream and to control thier bite. They use thier like a hand so the key is to let them know when they are too agressive. Due to their intelligence they will test you like a five year old and see if they can get away with doing something like screaming which they know is wrong.

Jessie is extremely entertaing and has a vocabulary of about 50 words. My wife brings him to her tailor shop and he entertains a lot of the customers with his talking.

I have a 12 yr old Boston Terrier, two cats (adopted strays) and an African Gray Parrot whos owner no longer wanted. I have had him(Rocky) for 10 years. I have no idea how old he is or even if he is a he!!

I think people who love and have compassion for animals are better people.

I have plenty of pics but dont know how to post them. Im on a cell phone and dont see how to insert pics.

but I think you would have to have the pictures on your phone (maybe? I'm no techie!) to access them.  If you have pics on your phone, you should be able to post them.  AA
