Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Mon Feb 11, 2013, 01:10 PM

Those we love, after 02.11.13. Post their pictures here.

This discussion thread is pinned.
The first picture thread is now locked because it was so popular. This one's purpose is the very same. Please post pictures of your pets. The ones you have now, the new ones that join you, and the ones that have Crossed Rainbow Bridge. Say as little or as much about them as you wish.

Post pictures of your pets here. Introduce us. There have been many pictures posted to the group in separate threads. Hopefully we can put them all here, too.

If one of yours has crossed The Bridge, maybe you will see this as a small way to honor them for their years of unconditional love and the joy they've brought you.

She is a silly ass dog, for sure. In our occasionally stressed out household, she is the one laugh we can all laugh together.

2. My kids who have crossed the Bridge:

Max, a foster kid who decided after 48 hours he wasn't leaving my house (that was in 2008).
He went to the Bridge on 2-9-2013 at the age of 6, after a battle with Degenerative Myleopathy.





And his brother Bubba Ray LaBeagle, adopted in July 2005.
He went to the Bridge on 8-10-2011 at the grand old age of 14.
He's now showing Max where all the bunnies and squirrels hang out.

35. Here's the whole pack, finally.

Took me an act of G*d to get back into my Photobucket account ...


1. Grand ol' man Hank ... adopted in January 2000 at the age of 3 months. He's now 14. My world will probably end when he leaves me.



2. After Ray (in the post above) passed, I took in Porter P Bear, who was on death row for being 'aggressive'. He's a deaf barn dog that got adopted out to a woman with 3 small kids & cats. Bad fit, not his fault. He lives with my daughter now & they adore each other. He's actually totally zen.




3. When Porty moved in with my daughter, and Max (pictured in the post above) passed from DM, I adopted Coco(nut) from the rescue I used to foster for. ACD/Beagle mix like Hank. She has no idea how small she is & bosses the big dogs around with glee.



4. And this past summer, I took in Hammy, who was also on the kill-list because he's got bad back knees & in need of expensive surgery. He settled right in & I re-named him Homer J because he's not the brightest bulb and has a serious sweet tooth. We think he's Pit/Shepherd mix, but not sure.



Add in about a dozen random Beagle fosters from a local rescue over the years, and Phew!!

12. Crook and Norman are great cat names.

Our only remaining cats are Murray, who is actually my younger son's, and his sister Cosmo, who is la dolce vita in Florida with my ex. My ex who never wanted a cat. They're now inseparable.

Murray and Cosmo are litter mates. As kittens they were inseparable. When Cosmo matured (we wanted her to have one estrus) she suddenly stopped playing with Murray. Since that day, they could be together without very serious hissing fighting.

Murray defines mellow. If Cosmo were a dog, it be much easier to call her what she'd become. She wound up, fat and happy, living anti socially with ex down in Florida, keeping the lizard population in the lanai in check.

Engineered Karmic Affinity, I call it.

7. I lost my beloved Beauty

in June. I'm still inconsolable. So many times I've started a memorial thread for her in this forum, because I know all of you here will understand, but I've never been able to get through it without breaking down.

Eventually I will be able to create that thread... but for now, on this Valentine's Day, I'll just post one picture in tribute to the purest love I've ever known.

8. Patsy ?/1995 - 3/5/2013

















We adopted Patsy in 1996 and I named her for my favorite TV character, Patsy, from Absolutely Fabulous.

Patsy was such a character, vocal and in her younger days, very athletic. She could climb a 6 foot cement block fence with ease, especially during softball/baseball season. She would head over to the fields across the street from our house and hang out begging for nachos and hot dogs.

We were told when we adopted her that she was a pitbull mix. I didn't see it, but that is what we were told. We finally did DNA testing; Boxer, Golden retriever and Samoyed.

Patsy was the best foster mom to every dog we have ever brought into our home. She was gentle, loving and patient. She loved to have a plush/squeaker toy and would just carry them around with her and tease you with them.

I miss Patsy very much but am glad I had the honor of being her mommy for so many years.

9. Dogs age so elegantly as their muzzles turn grey.

Those pictures tell the story of a life well loved. Doggie love is a verb. They love us.

Patsy looks like the dog who prefers the sunshiny part of the meadow by The Bridge.

Be well, Patsy.

15. Unconditional Love

I am very grateful to be able to post and share about my beloved Iris who passed in 2010 on Christmas Eve in my arms. It's hard to believe just how close one can be to animals. It's about the only thing in life you can trust. The unconditional love a dog. My Iris, an American Bulldog/Pitbull mix, adopted me while volunteering at the ASPCA. She came in to the shelter, for the 3rd time around. Her newest owner said that she bit his daughter. According to the women there who knew this dog, she was incapable of biting any human, especially children whom she adored. We found out the real reason later....a baby was on way.
Iris, severely abused and at deaths door when first found, was used as a breeder for fighting dogs. When she had had enough, and refused to let a male mount her, she was kicked and beaten and left to die on the basement floor.
Weary of strangers, it took many days of gentle coaxing, but she came to trust me, and I saw this dogs potential. I took her home for the weekend to introduce her to my daughter, Caitlynn, and son Benjamin. It was love at first sight. We knew that she was meant for us.
Losing so many puppies, the vet guessed she had about 14 litters, she was possessively attached to soft, squeaky toys, and one was forever in her mouth. I decided to get Iris a puppy. I brought home with me a rescue Pomeranian, about 8 weeks old. When I set the pup down in front of her, she looked up at me, puzzled. She sniffed the female pup and then all was lost. She whined so deep in throat I thought it almost sounded human. She immediately began licking and nuzzling the puppy, whining softly with each gentle tongue swipe. It was pure, unadulterated love. She never picked the squeaky toy again.
We were blessed with Iris for 3 very short years when she was diagnosed with cancer. And when it was time for her to go, I held her in my arms as the doctor administered the anesthesia. Her beautiful golden eyes never left mine as she slowly faded away. As my tears fell on her pure white fur, I never felt such a deep, gnawing pain when her eyes shut for the last time. Even the vet, who did this all the time, cried.
I'll never forget this dog, as long as I live. When it's my time to go, I know she will be there waiting for me. On the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you Iris, you good dog, you...

23. Sam, our Welsh Terrier

These are some of our happiest memories with Sam. He was a very well travelled dog - born in Ireland, then moved with us to Holland, spent time in France, and then moved back to Ireland for his last years. In his travels, he has been to England, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy, as well as France and the Netherlands. We loved having him with us.

and I won't post their pictures, because it seems to get harder instead of easier to see them right now, for some reason. So ... here is my Obie, who I got from the Humane Society a few months ago. He's the sweetest, gentlest, most intuitive, silly, goofy dog and I am forever grateful to the HS for taking in and adopting out these angels.

Obie chillin in the back yard today, Aug. 29.

Of course I'm a little biased, but he's really just a perfect companion and I love him to death. He does have his faults though .... he's a digger! I just spent nearly a full day filling in holes big enough to bury me lying down in. He gets hot and digs them to lay in and keep cool I think .. but really, what dog needs 7 holes?? He's a little put-out in those pictures because he watched me, looking completely disgusted that I was undoing all his hard work.

29. Way back before we even had a host in this group -

I posted a picture of my sweet puppy. He didn't make it into these photo threads (started after that time) so I'll do a compilation here.

First lab rescue back in 2000 (we sadly lost her in 2008):



Second lab rescue (he was a senior dog and passed away in 2010):



Third lab is a purebred - we bought him from the original owner (yellow/red - 3 yrs old) & Fourth lab rescue is the chocolate (she is about 2):



As you can see I have a preference for labs.

Next up: some sort of little rat terrier from the humane society who can help with the rodent population! Dogs are more easily contained in our outdoor pen, and come when called...unlike kitties...

Thanks for the love.

33. I'll post two pictures my current cat and my sadly departed cat

This is Vanilla yes these are the names that happen when you allow a 9 year old to name an all white cat. Sadly I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked with her. Because my mom moved to Florida and I was still in NY at the time. She died in 2010 and whats weird is she had been sick ahile but held out until I came to visit and she died the second day I was there.



My current cat is Van Gogh he got that name because part of his ear is missing. I found him winter time about 4 years ago when I was moving into my new apartment and he was very loving and sweet and a little malnourished. So I figured he was cold and hungry I'd take him in and here we are 4 years later.

When my husband was small, they rescued a black and white cat after his soccer game. He wanted to name him "Soccer." He ended up being "Merlin 1."

Kudos to you for allowing a 9 year old the honor of naming.

45. Please welcome KD

Health tragedies in her human family brought 2 y/o Kd to us. She comes from an urban environment with little chance for exercise so she's a bit plump at the moment.



She's integrating extremely well with everyone else. Here she is helping check the mail with Lucy a white 5y/o and Alan a brown 13y/o.



Judging by the amount of time it spends out of her mouth and her clownish nature, I didn't think anyone could properly appreciate her beauty without a sample of 'The Tongue'.



Seeing her discover the joys of space, romping and exercise provides perhaps one of the most deeply pleasurable things I've experienced in years.

52. The method depends on where the image resides.

It needs to be on the intertubes someplace. DU does not host them. If it is an image that is just out there on the 'net someplace, just copy the image's URL (NOT the image itself) and paste it into your post. Voila! Picture.

If it is your own image, then you first need to get it on the internet. Most people use Photobucket, but any image storing/sharing site will work. Upload the picture there and then, from that site, copy the image's URL and paste it here.

Hope that helps.

I posted about her awhile back but never got around to getting any pics up until now. Her latest trick/game is leaping on my back about any time she can get the drop on me! It's a good thing she won't ever be a real big kitty! We'll see how that goes over with Sassy next time she visits. She thinks it's funny but might not when the little stinker does it to her!

Here we have her laying there looking pretty and savagely attacking the toy mouse on her scratching post!
