I love how halfway through getting brushed, our cat will grab my arm with both front paws. Then proceed to give thank you kisses. Every single time.

My little beagle was my true soulmate; we was born on the same day and she was a handful. Her first Christmas I had decorated the tree and was upstairs watching TV. She ran up the steps, bounded into my lap, put her paws on my shoulders and got right up into my face (she never licked.) I smelled peppermint on her breath--she had eaten every candy cane she could reach on the tree, including the wrappers! Then I found that she had also eaten an ornament--it was a little mouse; all that was left was a hat and a pair of legs. I stapled the hat to the legs and it became 'Sara's ornament'. I still have it

The other love of my life was Tiny, my mastiff. Many stories about her but this is my favorite picture of her and DS:

My mini American Eskimo does the cutest thing every morning.
When he's decided we've slept long enough, he jumps up on our bed. He'll then stand over hubby (nearly nose to nose) and gently paw hubby's face. If hubby isn't fast enough in waking up, Gabe then proceeds to "dig" the covers off of hubby (using his front paws, he digs/pulls until hubby is uncovered). Once the covers are down, Gabe then runs back and forth between hubby and me, leaping and flipping, bouncing the bed. Its so funny to watch, we usually end up bursting out laughing, which ends the charade that we're asleep.
That little fluff ball is such a spaz...but he's cute about it!

Our white german shepherd "talks" to us. She likes to stand at the top of the stairs in our house and give a barking kind of howl. I'll usually respond conversationally, and then SHE responds. We can go back and forth like this for quite a while before she gets distracted.

One more...
My daughter's cat likes to head-butt people. If you're sitting on our sofa, he'll jump up onto the back, walk along the "spine" of the couch, then butt his head into yours. He'll continue doing it until you reach up and pet him.

Gotta love those furbabies!!

Well, I think this is cute...Sands, not so much . Our gray cat likes to drink water from the tap. She will do the catwalk thing back and forth meowing until I tap the counter, then she jumps up, gets a few strokes, purrs, and proceeds to lap it up. I think it's adorable. She sucks at remembering to turn off the tap though .

Kyle has to walk around the pool every day,right at the edge...I mean, not even a 1/2 an inch to spare. And most of the time when he's doing it...he's not even looking straight ahead...he's looking at us like "whoops...I almost fell in"

Jrazz posted 7/18/2013 14:48 PM

LOL Kyle!!! Little buddy...

I have a million of them.
I will share a couple fave's.

My Dane was a great counter surfer, and nothing, was safe. If it was edible she was going to get it. She was known for eating entire loaves of sandwich bread. Nothing more frustrating than going to make lunches for the next day, and finding there is no bread at 9pm.

I had a Golden that was a total water hound - when he was about 4 months old he would go into the back yard (we were in college still) roll in this big nasty mud puddle, and go from golden to nearly black, and then when you let him in, he would go straight to the bathroom and hop in the tub, waiting his next bath. You didn't have to tell him, he just knew. He also had a trick of sleeping in the tub in our first apartment when we got out of college. He would work to close the stopper and it had a slow drip when we would get home from work he would have a wet belly, and legs from lying in the water that had collected in the tub during the day.

We have a black lab now that is a waterfowl dog. My H and son trained her, and she is amazingly smart, and probably the most athletic dog I have ever seen. If anyone picks up a shotgun in our house, she immediately gets excited, and is ready to retrieve. When she hears a loud noise (similar to a shotgun) she will watch the sky, and start looking for a duck. We have to give her the No Bird command before she will quit looking for it.

Kyle is such a cutie and sounds like a little tight rope walker.

tushnurse - Seeing Dane and counter surfer in the same sentence is hysterical. I'm sorry about your bread.

I love how your kitty shows so much affection

I've had the great fortune to have many pets over the years who had a lot of character and quirky habits.

I'll start with Eliot and Webber (named after "Cats"). They were abandoned by their feral mother after their female littermate was killed by a fox. They were around three days old at the time, so I had to hand-raise them. This caused certain boundary issues, as they were convinced I was just a giant cat.

Eliot would climb onto the bed and bury his face in my (then very long) hair, then roll over. And over. And over. Each time, he'd get a little more tangled. There were a few times I had to have Mr. T come and cut the cat out of my hair.

Webber was a cuddler, and would jump in my lap and put his paws just on either side of my neck and sit there, eyes closed and nose-to-nose with me, purring. I never figured out why, but he had a bit of a drooling problem. When he'd purr, he'd blow little spit bubbles. Imagine me sitting there, face to face with an ostensibly dozing cat, little bubbles going "pop!" right between us.

Gypsie was a border collie dog, a gorgeous smooth coated tricolor. She had the most animated eyebrows, and a wicked sense of humor. (You can't tell me she didn't.) I could spend all day writing about what she would do in various situations, but my favorite thing of all was how she would bark or perform tricks according to hand signals. I could sit unseen in another room and have her "converse" with visitors. It was very funny.

Now I have Pookie, a chow/Aussie mix. She's decided she's Mr. T's dog. As you know, Mr. T is way into kung fu. He practices often in the back yard, and every form starts with a bow. Pooks and I tend to sit out there to watch him, and after her first month with us, she started to bow back to him. Now, every day when she greets him at the door, they bow to one another. She'll bow to anybody who comes to the door, too, so when strangers enter I ask them to bow to the dog. They do, every time. It cracks me up.

Thank you, DS. We tried to enter her in the Guiness Book of World Records for most kisses given at one time by a cat, but they don't have a category for that. (180 to DD)

I love the pics of all our darling pets!

Also...what is it with cats and boxes?!! No box is safe in our house either.

jo2love posted 7/18/2013 21:22 PM

Gaby, They are too darn cute. I love the look on Gabe's face.

I wish I knew. I like seeing them try to cram into a box that is too small, only get 2 paws in, and then look down like, "Damn. I don't fit."
