It's time to start a new thread. Plus it's another kitty's turn to have her picture posted.
We came from here:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1252818/

This is Sweetie Pie. She is a 3 year old or so abandoned cat that we ended up with.

Actually until these last few months she periodically became a member or the wrong species - canine. She is also a klutz. I think part of it is that she was a second cat here for a few months then Fluffy passed away. For a few more months she was an only cat. Then we added Bear the dog, Hairy the older blond cat, and Midnight a mostly black cat that I haven't posted a picture and I guess I will. I think it took a while for the whole pact to settle down into a comfort zone.

Jerry's a nice looking dog. I take it that he's some kind of hound.

My neighbor has 2 beagles. The male just loves me. If I'm out side he'll come straight over to get petted and play with my dog. The female doesn't and she and my dog have decided that the in between neighbor's driveway is the dividing line between her territory and his. I wish she was a little big more laid back because then if the neighbor wanted to go away for a weekend they could just come stay with me. The boy would the girl I don't think would.

The bossy one in this group would be the female beagle.

We got two ewes Saturday and I took Bear out to see them yesterday. He hadn't paid much attention to them before that. Of course he has to bark at them and as they moved to the other side of the pasture he had to run around it. I'm sure he'd like to get in there and play with them. I'm also sure it wouldn't meet the criteria of fun for the sheep. They were a little wary but not freaked about him. I was told that they had been around dogs before.

This isn't really my project. I share a house with a retired friend and the sheep are in theory his and another guys project. Given his health that means they are my project. I can't complain. It's his equipment and land that I'm using to put a garden in.

The dog going to see the sheep did accomplish one thing. I wanted to get close to the two to examine them very closely. One is losing wool and I wanted to see what her skin looked like up close. I can't see any parasites and she isn't itching. From what I read, ewes will sometimes lose wool after have a couple of lambs. I'll keep an eye on her.

Doug I can relate. I think I've lost a little wool after having my little lambs too. If had a male sheep, I'd name him Samson. Bear must be in dog heaven with all the barnyard friends to investigate.

No we've had sheep a few times here but not regular. I've never sheered one and I've never spun wool. They definitely have been around dogs before because Bear was sticking his head through the hog panels that we are using for fence and barking at them and the ewes weren't running away at all.

A local historical society sponsors annual sheep shearing demonstrations, but you have to get them there. When I was little and we had sheep, you could hire a guy with a van to come and do the work in the spring. He'd get to keep the wool for payment.

http://youtu.be/3afqRxcUFYA Here's another cute example of the smooth haired brussels (the owner's say short hair, but they are really called smooth hair). They look so much like a pug because Brussels Griffon have pug in their ancestry. However if you look at them closely, you'll notice that they have quite a pronounced underbite and the brown colored brussels is actually called "red" because it is reddish brown and not fawn like the pug. Their body type is also much more slender. I think they look like "gremlins" from the movie and their rough haired cousins (long haired brussels) look like ewoks.

I bet the mastiff didn't much about it except slobber on you. I've always been more wary of little dogs than big dogs. Big dogs know they're big and don't feel they have to prove how tough they are. I suspect that my dog gets his brindle from some mastiff in him.

As long as you don't get a Bull mastiff which are very agressive. I had one pull my cocker spaniel out of my arms at a dog show (lucky for cocker's heavy coat.) At an earlier show I show one attack an English sheepdog which was standing on his crate being groomed. Again a heavy coat saved him.

That's how English mastiffs anyway were bred, to be intimidating. Some were used to discourage pouching on royal lands.

Xenspirit, Buddy and the GP are adorable. I have a soft spot for GP's, as I've raised them. They are such great pets. While looking at the link to those videos you posted, I came across this one that I thought was quite hilarious: http://youtu.be/y2-IzikIE8s

Ronnie, Winston is growing big quickly, as they do. He's looking great! Yup, destructive puppy stuff. Still dealing with that with Jerry. I keep hoping he'll grow out of it soon. I see you're dealing with it, too, Celeste. Glad I'm not the only one!

OMG, Jen, your friend's Basset is adorable!

I saw an enormous Newfoundland today while I was out and about. Beautiful dog.

I looked up that American Mastiff and the Cane Corso. Impressive dogs.

* Height: 37 inches at the shoulder
* Length: 8 feet, 3 inches long
This site shows some pictures of him.

We have a resident bunny in the back yard, and the dog chases it but never catches it. We get babies every year, and those she has gotten a few times. You'd think the bunny would eventually go away, but it's been 3 years now.

Bear chased a bunny once. The bunny ran under a low limb on a tree and Bear ran straight into the limb. So much for that bunny chase.

The deal with rabbits is this.

Two rabbits are being chased by a fox. They stop on a hill to take a breather. One asks the other. "Should we stay and out breed them or should we try to out run them? We'd better start running because you are my brother"

Another interesting thing is. We had some wild rabbits that had crossed with white New Zealands. It only took a couple of years for them to all disappear because they were far too easy to spot from a distance.

Doug, I had found that info on Zorba when I was looking up mastiffs. I had also come across a video on youtube explaining that picture that is a fake, and how it was made, etc. Interesting. The drool factor from a dog like that would keep me from wanting to have one.

Those American Mastiffs are beautiful, and if I had the money and the time, I would have a giant breed like that. Just gorgeous! I can imagine the vet bills, and the food, etc.

We get bunnies here all the time, too, even though Patches invariably gets some of the babies every year.

Nice pics, Rosemary. Cliffie and your daughter look great. Sad and exciting to watch the kids grow up.

I was at a friend's house today, and her cat got right up on my chest while I was sitting in the easy chair and wanting to suck my neck. Kept tickling me. Very affectionate. I had a cat like that. I had raised him and his sister on a bottle from the time they had just opened their eyes. He was the sweetest cat. His sister was sweet as well, but more easily frightened by things.

Of course they think. They are descended from animals that made their living by hunting in groups. If a wolf doesn't think about when to hide, when to chase, when to be quiet and when to howl to get help, it's going to go hungry.

that describes the small bullie that was at my barn.. she was too funny.. was intimidating to some people because she would run over barking and snorting.. sounding like she wanted to chew your leg off.. get to your feet and flop over for a belly rub.. the owner had to warn new people coming so they wouldn't be terrified

July 4th coming up...get those tranqs ready for the severely bothered. I'll probably give Casey a 1/4 of a pill on Wednesday since she is the one that's really bothered by fireworks of man and God. Dexter and the cat don't seem to notice. Dexter and the cat...hmm, they have such carefree, happy attitudes. Dexter doesn't realize he's knocking on death's door and I will not spill the beans. He will die a happy dog, having lived a happy life.Our pets should live longer though, don't ya think?

She has a tendency to chew stuff outside which she does not get scolded for. (never chewed nothing in the house). She will chew especially on wood & sticks. She will dig sticks/bark out of the ground that has dirt on them and chew & eat.

Think this is how she got them?

We have a marsh/wetlands and she goes down and gets ucky. She has pulled saw grass out by the roots and dragged it up to the house as a treat for us.

I think she has had them for awhile. Saying a month.

I think I hate saying I think, but she has had a dry nose and I saw something going wrong. I hope this works. She has been treated for FREAKING WORMS.

Oh boy here I go. I know tapeworms. I took a sample and put it on a piece of wood. Brought it in the house to look at it under a very powerful microscope. I ended up running out of the house gagging. They were tiny and wigglingling.

wiki:
Transmission may occur through:
Ingestion of raw or partly cooked meat, especially pork, lamb, kitten, or venison containing Toxoplasma cysts. Infection prevalence in countries where undercooked meat is traditionally eaten has been related to this transmission method. Tissue cysts may also be ingested during hand-to-mouth contact after handling undercooked meat, or from using knives, utensils, or cutting boards contaminated by raw meat.[20]
Ingestion of contaminated cat feces. This can occur through hand-to-mouth contact following gardening, cleaning a cat's litter box, contact with children's sandpits, or touching a leech. The cysts can survive in the environment for over a year.[21]
Cats excrete the pathogen in their feces for a number of weeks after contracting the disease, generally by eating an infected rodent. Even then, cat faeces are not generally contagious for the first day or two after excretion, after which the cyst 'ripens' and becomes potentially pathogenic.[22]

Jeeeez...partially cooked KITTEN???

Postcards came from the vet this week. Meeyow (stray) needs his rabies shot and he looks so bad from his winter dreadlocks coming off in places that I hate taking him in. He is not a cat that I can groom although we get on a little better since he knows I will stop annoying him when he growls - he doesn't have to claw and bite me to get me to stop anymore.

I realized that he has lost a lot of weight from this time last year. I've started giving him a little crunchy food at night to try and put some weight back on him. Someone else must have stopped putting out food in the neighborhood and he is missing those calories. He almost always leaves some food in the dish when he gets canned food twice a day but he always gobbles up the crunchy food.

They know the medical protocols and the various ways to medicate especially if he can't tolerate the meds by mouth. He can still live a long life - it isn't a death sentence.

Introduce yourself and Crash to the group and post his bloodwork and they will tell you much more than your vet has time to.

sigh... I just got off the phone with Michele.. she had to put Wily down last night.. for the last couple of weeks he was struggling breathing.. just coughing and coughing... couldn't get stressed, excited, or hot.. and it just would get worse.. get a couple of shots at the dr and would be better for a while.. time was getting less and less between visits.. she knew it was time to not see him suffer.. he lost a ton of weight in 2 weeks.. guess he was too weak to recover this time.. but again the vet only gave him months back in 2008 with his pancreas.. and it was years and years.. so we are thankful for that

you know when I was picking my guys up after the party.. the shape he was in was not good.. and I had a feeling it was a matter of time.. but Randy clammed him down and he seemed better before we left... guess she didn't have that in the middle of the night.. Al was talking about us watching him in Aug and didn't want to worry us with his coughing.. on the ride home I told Randy I don't think we will have to worry for too long.. I saw the look in the dogs eye... he was saying goodbye last night.. glad we got to see him at least

Painful to say, "Good-bye" to a dear pet/animal friend, but it's the best thing for him(her) to end what would be a long, downhill battle.

My vet always said, if the animal is going to decline and decline, let go for his sake.

I am beginning to think my power animal is a bird... Randy had to leave to wrap up some things from the party yesterday and stop by Michele... I got up to get a drink of water.. looked out my kitchen window and there was a red tail hawk just starring at me .. sitting up on the slope.. we gave each other the stare down for a half a min and he flew away

I was watching a hummingbird flying back and forth in an arc, pretty cool to watch. There was another in the area, not sure if it was aggression toward a male, or a mating ritual for a female.

Dam I cut Winston's quick and couldn't get it to stop bleeding. The cauter gel I have just wouldn't work no matter how much I used. There was blood everywhere. I got it packed pretty good with flour out of corn starch of course. He didn't yelp, just blood pouring out.

I really never saw so much blood, even when my son went through the storm door glass as a kid he didn't bleed as much!
All better today. I really wanted to be able to cut his at home, I never could with Harper. Abby's are easy, hers are white and I can see what the heck I'm doing!
Guess tomorrow if he fits in the truck with the girls and Harper he is going with us to the groomer to get them cut.

Well I got a little surprise - took Sampson in for teeth cleaning and the vet removed irritated tissue in his mouth and then they found two cavities when they were scaling his teeth. I didn't know they were going to take out the tissue! This time I let them biopsy the tissue because they would go back in and take even more tissue if it comes back positive. I was planning on just leaving the irritated tissue becasue it didn't hurt him. $igh.

Ollie loved to take apart the woodpile, & carry huge logs around...that may have contributed...he's never on a leash, they have 5 acres with an electric fence...and since he's a rare breed...wire-haired pointing griffon...we don't know if the breed is prone to it or not...my little granddaughters were quite sad about it...

1.) This is Cyrus discovering his 1st frog.
2) This is Romeo watching Cyrus with said frog. He just has that look as if he's saying "Stupid Dog!!"
3) The LOOK Cyrus gave me when I rescued the poor thing from him.
4)Whoops...posted it twice!
5) Little guy has no idea how lucky he is.

Don't overwork yourself Clifford and don't eat the profits!

Winston got hold of a baby sparrow...thought for sure he had eaten it but I got his mouth pried open and it was whole. I guess he was playing with it. Have to be vigilant with the girls on keeping the coop gate locked. Certainly don't need dead chickens.

It's the poodle blood. He'll proudly wear whatever crazy things people put on him. I'll never forget when we just got him and DD1 tied a ribbon around each ear.

Fun to watch the pets grow up. We had a phase of eating every animal in sight, but now Cliffie leaves them all alone or else he romps around with them. Nice of Celeste to rescue the frog from inquiring Cyrus.

We've got a hawk too but my spirit animal is a bat :) The hawk is the only thing that eats the little critters, and we have so many my kids think they're in a Bambi movie when they go outside. I wonder if its only because of the new shrubs and flowers, or because the neighbor properties have downed all their trees.
