Cute puppy Jaybird.

Just thought I'd post a semi-cute Bailey story.  About two weeks ago she came in the house at about 6:30 in the morning (I leave the back door open for her so she can go out on nights I don't have an alert the next day) and she hopped up on the bed meowing like crazy.

I gave her a little ear scratching and rolled over to go back to sleep when I noticed she had brought me a present....a snake!  It was a garter snake about 1.5 to 2 ft long and STILL ALIVE!  Needless to say I didn't need coffee to wake up that morning!  :o

I had a nice long chat with Bailey telling her I appreciated the gesture, but please....no more live snakes in the bed!  :)

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Awww. Isn't that cute? :)

Here's a few pictures of my best buddy. His name is Blizzard he is half Australian Sheppard and half Border Collie.


He has never been a big fan of bath time and normally will jump right out of his little tub the second he is left alone, but for some reason on this day when my dad went inside to get some more soap he just sat there for a good 5-10 minutes until my dad came back.


Awhile back we came home and found that Blizzard had got up onto the couch wedged himslef in between two cushions and decided to take a nap.


Me and my Brother discovered a family of Raccoons in one of our trees one night, Blizzard wanted to come outside too.

UPDATE:

Mittens


We actually had to put this one down just recently due to old age (he was probably 15 years old) but also due to kidney and renal failure.  My parents had him creamated and his urn sits in the cureo cabinet where he can watch over everybody.  It was a tough thing to hear from around 3,000 miles away over the phone but I actually more or less knew it would happen eventually. 

RIP Mittens

Erika -- I'm sorry to hear about Mittens :(.  That is such a hard decision to make -- even when you know its then best for them.

Ryan -- I bet Blizzard keeps you guys hopping :).  We used to have a Australian Shepard/Blue Heeler mix.  She ALWAYS wanted to have something to do.  She was forever "herding" us and the other dogs around the house. 

Rob -- your dogs are a hoot -- are they Boston Terriers?  Do they snore and snort and snot and snuffle?  Our pug used to make so much noise -- but she was so funny. :)

iFett -- Maggie is the sweetest little thing!  I miss having a dog(s) around.  We just need to wait until the kids get a little bigger.......

I love looking at everyone's pet pics -- please keep them coming!

I have no pictures at the moment, but I do have two cats.  In two months when my wife and I close and take possession of our new house, I'll be picking up at least one dog...trying to get my wife to let me have two.

They are.  The older one is about 3 and a half and the younger one is a little over two now.  With the short noses they end up snorting a lot whenever they choke themselves on the leashes... and at other times.  When they drink too much water they throw it back up... and the little one still has potty-training issues and I'm running out of ideas (thank God for concrete floors).  But they're phenomenal dogs, are unbelievably sweet (to people, not necessarily to other dogs...).  We love them to death.  There are a bunch of older pictures a page or two ago if you didn't see them already from when the little one was really little.

Sounds like pugs.  Ours could pretty much care less about other small dogs, but get them around a big dog and they would turn into Cujo.  They didn't care.
