I thought it was time to show all my friends a picture of the "real" Polly. Yep thats her, and some of you thought that my avatar was my "real" picture, hehe. She is an old girl, about 14 years old. She is still doing good for her age. Believe it or not, she is half German Shepard. Her momma was a Shepard, her daddy was some kind of Terrier, he was the size of a cat. Yep they learned how to do "it". It sure was funny too when I caught them. They looked at me like ooopps, we didn't do anything ma. The dad got fixed after they started their family. I had thought we were safe considering their sizes. Just like teenagers, once them hormones get going they will figure out how to do the dirty deed. Both mom and dad are gone now, I just have Polly left. If you have pictures or stories about your pets share them here. I know some of you already use pictures of your pets as your avatar. Its fun to see pictures from others.

It worked, I don't know what happened before, I had the picture showing and everything. Don't you just hate it when things mess up like that. Duh. you start a discussion and forget to include the link or the picture doesn't show up.

Of course, here I am in my e mail. and will go look at the picture and comment on it in a minute. I was just sharing with my hubby about the bunny I had that trained itself to use a grocery flat as a litter box, because it found one sitting by the kitty litter tray. I thought that was exceptional.

The picture didn't post right, I did manage to post it with my first response under Grandpa Bob response. I used to have a bunny rabbitt, he used the litter box. Rabbitts make good pets. Thet naturally use a litter box, very easy to train that way.

Elvis - And everyone thought Elvis was dead....wrong, here he is.
As a person who loves Maxine I knew that your avatar was not Polly. Your Polly is such a sweet looking little girl. My cat is my avatar and she turned 14 on June 27th. I also have a dog who is an Italian Greyhound, he will be 2 in January. I have a picture of him in my photos but I will attach his picture here for others to see also.

Bella the pretty kitty cat..... - Bella the pretty kitty cat........
Your cat shares my birthday. I had a cat that lived to be about 25 yrs. old. Cats can live a long time. I am going to try to post another picture, this one is one of my cats. This is when she was little, she looks the same but her hair is longer. She is as sweet as she looks. Her name is Bella.

Aww, what a sweetheart!! For an interesting combo, it sure produced one beautiful girl! I love black dogs! Sometimes the different mixtures like that come up with some awesome looking dogs. My oldest dog is 8, she's still a puppy brain sometimes. She's a German Shepherd, I got her for less and didn't take her papers with the promise I wouldn't use her 'breeding for profit.' The other one is actually my daughters, it's a shitzipoo and 1 year old. (Shitz and poo...hehehe, that describes her to a tee) It's a shitzu poodle combo and she's very small. (Toy size, just the right size to keep the floors dusted lol) Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of them that I can transfer into jpgs. I don't have a digital camera, nor a scanner. I was really upset with the 2 of them last night.....grrrrrrr...my daughter had just made a pecan pie and left it on the table to cool, then went into the bathroom for 2 minutes. The shepherd (who NEVER tries for food on the table or counters) actually knocked the pie off to the floor and they were both licking their lips and eating the evidence. Outside of this one goof-up, they're both really good dogs and behave well. I guess that pie was just too good to resist lol. (Man, and I was really looking forwards to a piece of that pie, too!)

Oooooooooops, I guess the picture of the black dog goes with the subject heading. I see you added it in talking to webeishere. Still, really a cute little pooch! I love those ears!!!! Webeishere's beagle is a sweet looking dog too. Never had a beagle, but almost everybody that comes here to hunt seems to have one lol. (I hear they're really great dogs too!)

I thought that you were going to show real pictures of yourself. I do not think that I know what you look like. Maybe if I check your profile, there is a photo of you. By the way, cool dog.

LOL, not exactly but close. The female sort of dragged the male upside down. The little guys front paws didn't even reach the floor. I heard a noise, went to see what was wrong. They looked so comical and innocent. It was like catching two teenagers in the act and they were innocent of any wrong doing. The male turned out to be quite a stud. I had him fixed a few weeks after she had the pups, she had 10 pups. I even had to get him pills for his libido, hehe. After that if they wanted to do the deed, I told them to take it outside. I am so honored that I gave you a reason to show your pic,

You might not know it but you gave me the idea about posting a picture of my dog. I knew some people would think I was posting a pic of me, hehe. I did post a real pic of me in response #8 just above here. I think you seen it before, it was me and Mr. Bones. I have another pic of me and my new man that I met while on my last vacation. I will try to add it just for you. The pic showed up, I hope it will show up when I post it.

Cracker And Peanut - Cracker is the white one, and Peanut the brown one.
I am not sure if I have a picture of our dogs or not, but we also have a inside cat and an outside cat. If I can find it on the computer, then I will post the picture. Your dog is very cute. Our two chihuahua's are famous for trotting through the manure field at the neighbor's and barking at horses, things that aren't there, and each other. They also like to lick themselves, each other, and us.

Tasha and Tigger in a peaceful sleep - Our female dog Tasha died in January 2008. She was a gentle dog and was so good with the five kittens we have when we first brought them home. One in particular a male cat called Tigger adored her and loved to sleep beside her as this photo shows.
Ah yes, people and their pets...such a great topic. When we lived on an acreage we had 4 dogs. Now we are down to one. However, we also have 5 cats and they and our dog Cherokee get along very well. Cherokee is coming into his 9th year and is a shepherd/husky cross. Our beloved companion Tasha lived to almost 15 years and was put down in January of this year. I have included a photo of her with one of the marmalade males. He loved her and mourned her passing for a couple of months. She was a lab/shepherd mix and a loyal, lovable pet and we miss her a lot. We have two female cats...pure black one called Nexus and a gray tabby and her name is Shal-lie. You can see a little of Shal-lie in the photo. There are two twin ginger marmalade cats...Tigger and Tee-Tooh and a beige male that we named Nova. We love all our fur-babies and are thankful for the blessing they are to both David and me. I have included a photos. Fun topic...glad to be able to participate. Raia

Here are four of the five cats...the ginger twin males, Shal-lie and Nova. The only one missing in action is Nexus...

Yeh, she is still doing good. You can tell she is getting up there in age. She still goes up and down the stairs. Right now she is at my feet under my desk. The cats and grandkids keep her "young".

I just love dogs, my old guy was a stud for Guiding Eyes for the Blind and he just went there for his annual shots and physical. He was the old guy of the event. He will be 13 in July. I guess him being the old guy is a good reason to celebrate but last year there were 2 dogs older than him and they are no longer with us. I guess this tells me to treasure my time with him. BTW my old fart is a black lab, we also have his son, we adopted him when he was 4 months old, they released him because he had a heart defect. When we got him they said he would probably not live to be a year old. He fooled them, he was 10 years old in December.

I love Black Labs, they are great dogs, smart too. Yeh when our "babies" get old, we have to treasure them even more. Polly's dad lived to be about 15, her mom was 10 yrs. old.

No vick, I don't have any pictures of Pets, I don't even own a pet. My Sister has this Terrier he is so cute. everytimr I come over she barks it is a kind of bark that lets me know she likes me, whenever I come over she stands up and begs, she thinks I will always give her something, sometimes I do. I remmeber youtelling me your profile name was Polly named after your dog. I wonder what ever happened to chunkers? He was a funny guy he was named after his Dog too remember.
