Post a picture of your pet!

Evil Puppy a couple of Christmases ago.

Here's Jordan with our soon to be one-year-old pup, Crowley.

Yesterday marked 11 years of having Orie around.

My cat, Squeaker.

And two regular houseguests, my sister and her husband's dogs. The big white one is Lucy and the little guy is Riley.

Our cat Haku loves to stretch out and tends to stretch and just stay that way. I caught him doing so in the hallway last night:

He stayed like that for at least a couple of minutes.

Hah. I usually take that as an invitation for belly rubs.

Oh yes, there's plenty of that. But I couldn't help just laughing at him for a while as he just lay there stretched out, staring at me.

Everyone knows that when a cat stretches, their muscles become useless for at least a full 30 seconds.

Except the ones that control the claws, for some reason.

My dog has no shame in his game. He loves to lay directly on his back with his legs splayed. It sort of makes me proud, actually.

As my roomate (Einbjorn) is at work I picked up his new dog for him!

Poor little dude, just picked him up from the shelter. 1yo boxer mix. He just had surgery (neutered) so he is in a bit of pain, confused and wobbly from the anesthesia, sick from kennel cough (doggy common cold) and in a new (scary!) place.

He is underfed, malnourished and all skin and bone. There are signs of a (taken care of) massive tick/flee infestation with all the little scabs on him. AAAAAnd he just peed on my carpet, so it looks like he is untrained.

All Odin wants to do is play with him but I have to keep him calm and dry while his wounds heal and the grogginess/nausea wear off. So I sent Odin to his room while the new dog gets comfortable around the new place.

He seems to be sticking to me like white on rice so far for the comfort but I'm sure once he isn't in as much pain and so sick that he will be running around the yard with Odin just fine.

He is currently sleeping off the anesthesia next to my chair.

Okay, now that one is a bit scary!! :O
Einbjorn, your dog isn't ugly, he's cute in his own non Golden Retriever way!
(for the record, I've got nothing against Golden Retrievers, they're just the poster pups for family dogs)

He is uglier in person for sure. I do have a question about him so I will ask it here and in the "ask questions" thread. When I run my hands down his ribs I can feel a sort of knot along the side about 2/3 the way down. It is on both sides and fairly even between ribs. Is this a sign of prior abuse or simply something that happens with certain breeds dog? Do I need to worry about it? My lab doesn't any such thing himself. He is so incredibly skinny that I can feel and see each bone in his body it seems.

Granted, I'm not a veterinarian, but... Does the knot feel like it's part of the bone, or is it really between ribs? Can you "move" it while palpating it or does it stay firmly in place, as if it were attached?

Is the big one part St. Bernard? He reminds me of my great moose although mine is (we think) St. Bernard/Golden Retriever.

They are both Clumber Spaniels (thus the handle)

That's the back leg sticking out behind the front. It does lend itself to the overall ugliness though. That dog's name was Sammy. Apparently a sweetheart of an animal who won the World's Ugliest Dog competition a lot.

And passed away a few years ago.

No. It's a trap!

He was bathed just after this. He's so fluffy!
