This is Jet (aka The Jetster, Jetski, Jetski Bibbles, or even just Bibbles). 'Walk' must be spelled around Miss Bibbles (we're pretty sure she's catching on to that as well  :tellme:), for fear of the destruction of the back door, and you daren't utter the words 'bye-bye car-car' unless you intend to take her out on the town (you can get away with B-B-C-C though).

She was rescued from the local shelter, and has the sweetest disposition you've ever seen in an animal. She enjoys pizza crusts, and liver treats (aka doggie-crack). Unfortunately, she belongs to the other half, but you can rest assured I'll be hanging around as long as she's here ;)

And now finally, the pics:

I put the minivan in reverse, got out the crowbar, and offered the guy $25 (all I had in my wallet) or the crowbar.  He took the $25.

Like Nosh, I am applying to join your fanclub now. You are my hero.

We adopted this little cutie from the animal shelter lat October. She picked us herself as soon as we entered through the gate. Nobody at the shelter knew her age (about 6 months in the picture) or what her history was. We called her Nora. She is absolutely sweet.

My wife's favorite picture of her is below...

Here's an example of one of our pets:

http://images27.fotk...53/5D_02_0566-vi.jpg

We only have ten rats right now (down from a high number of 26).  My wife is the "freak" of the family, but I guess I'm not far behind ... she rescues unwanted rats, but almost never re-homes them, so our home is host to many cages.

Beautiful photo.  It's sad when they need to go, but what matters is how happy they were when they were with us.  They look at us as Gods I think, the alpha of the pack.  If we treated them well and with unlimited love, then the life they led was fulfilling.

What a great shame, sorry to learn about that, texaslady.
There are a number of sad stories here  -- unhappily they seem to be the flip side of the pleasure that our companions can create.

How I managed to miss this one for a whole month...

Thanks for the wonderful photos and great (if sometimes sad) stories.

Our home is the realm of Pippi Longstocking

Pippi was a friend's dog, in Denmark, and when this friend decided to go back to University she couldn't keep her dog (pets not allowed in student housing).
So we drove her to England fron Denmark, and she's delighted us ever since  :-*

Now I have wanted a dog since I was about 4 - but lived in appartments and with busy jobs a lot so it would not have been fair to a dog. But in spring 2008 my mother was poorly, my last job was finished, and it was just time to get the dog. I waited over 30 years for that dog.

As things stand, she has 2 humans home with her nearly all the time, she gets to run and play a lot, she gets on long walks - and she gets spoiled (in a good way, time and interaction and training, not treats).

Pippi is a Portuguese Water Dog, but not breed standard as she has a flat coat. The result is an incredibly cute and elegant dog, by everyone's standards.

 (i have a whole set on flickr...  :-\ http://www.flickr.co...s/72157607574182136/ )

She is beautiful, and it is quite apparent that you love her and spoil her LOL.  She looks a bit mischievous?  How old?

iphigenie, I like the story (edit: and photos) on Flikr, of how you acquired Pippi.
She sounds like a great dog. And shiny, wow! Very pretty.  :)

Yohimba, pippi is just over 4 years old (http://www.casahoyas...ish/puppies/litter4/) . Nobody has told her you're supposed to be adult at 4 though  :-* and I hope she stays this bouncy and happy and puppyish forever, even if it means she has a very short attention span for training (a shame, since she is very smart who knows what she could learn to do)

Sarah, she is a very soft (PWD are especially soft dogs) and shiny dog, which is a good thing cause she really likes to be petted a lot.

my partner Robb wanted to teach her frisbee, but she hasn't figured out the drill of it yet. She likes being chased or chasing (people or dogs) more than just about anything in the world, but chasing a frisbee loses interest as soon as the thing is landed or caught. Bring it *back*? We've hope yet...

So does my cat! I chase her 'till she's cornered, then run away - then she charges after me until I'm caught, then we start over.
I live in an apartment, so each chase takes about 2 seconds  ;D - not exactly a run on the beach, but we manage  :)

I would so love to have a mini French or English Bulldog, and the second I live in a (truly) pet-friendly environment, I'll have one.
For now, I have my most loved, most appreciated, but  :(  aging feline companion.

It's so fun to get to hear and express all of this love we have for our pets. Thanks, mouser, for starting this thread  :-*

We chase her around the kitchen table, on and on - I do wonder what the neighbours might think if they see me run in circles making faces... they dont see the dog!

I waited over 30 years, so in time you will :)

We had a dog like that, "Petey".  Jack Russel/Beagle mix.  His favorite thing was to have children chase him around the drive in theater.  He would babysit our daughter.  When she took off running out to the "back 40", Petey would grab her diaper and make her sit down until we caught up. 

He was brilliant our Petey, and we loved him to old age.  We cried for over a week, and I am a bit teary just now thinking of him.  His ashes sit on the top shelf of my desk here.

i love when dogs do that thing when they want to be chased where they lower down on their front legs and stare at you intently and happily and do that little bouncy thing where they are daring you to chase them.

Mine used to take the view that if I throw something away then, clearly, it's no longer wanted.
Hard to beat that logic  :)
