Idyll Pets

Jerri_OKC(z7 Ok)June 9, 2008

The wonderful photo of the rare North American Miniature Tigress on the Idylls thread prompted me to start this thread. The only thing more lovely than Idyll gardens are Idyll pets. :)

Here is Catarina, Princess Kitty doing what she does best!

Jerri

P.S. I finally got all the components in place to post photos again ;)

Here is Ebony nursing. She looks so pitiful, her expression says it all. She has to nurse sitting up since the puppies are so big!

Awww, Ebony is adorable. She has the look of a tired new mommy. I love what I can see of the puppies...soooooooo cute.
You have the whitest cat...she's almost blinding. Is she getting along with the puppies?

Kathy, Doobie looks like she's enjoying her afternoon nap.

I love potting bench kitties. :)

The puppies are very well fed. We have trouble getting enough calories in Ebony to feed the little piggies.
She is on a special suppliment from the Vet to add to her suppersized puppy food meals.
We are working very hard to make sure the puppies spend time with our small dogs and all the kitties. This is our first time socializing pit babies. We are taking it very seriously. They need extra help with all the negative they will face later on. :(

Poor Ebony! When will the puppies be weaned?

This is an old picture but this is the 'pack' that is here today:

Jasper and Blue have been visiting while their 'parents' attend their son's university graduation. Misty is always pleased when her 'big brothers' come to visit. So are Randy and I...

This is as much fun as looking at photos of plants! You are all making me want a dog! I would want a cat too, but DH is very allergic. What great photos of all the four legged Idylls. Where is Phoebe and the Grays? Haven't seen Wrecks yet either. I agree Kathy...slackers all.. ;-) Beautiful animals.

Feel free to post more photos of all pets...would love one of the Grays in the kiddie pool..lol. Does anyone have a photo of dogs and cats playing together?

Our last of a series of baby snapping turtles, raised in our bathroom for 2 years. Here he says goodbye to DH before swimming off... We shed a tear.

I think Ein would prefer that he go first:

Since Newt is Ein's least hated cat, she goes next:

Evie is Newt's daughter, so she's next up:

Might as well make it three girl cats in a row, Felony's next:

Which just leaves Joseph:

I was tired last night and didn't identify the dogs who had taken over the guest futon. Mystic is the black lab and Sunrise is the yellow lab. Penny is the red dog with the war wound. Poor thing - she had a nasty run-in with a raccoon in March that required 13 stitches to close. Then she crashed into the old coffee table at our house, knocked out a chunk of wood about four inches long and got 10 stitches about 8" back of where the previous ones were located. She belongs to my son's fiancee and loves to visit Mystic and Sunrise. Her owner got her from a shelter and thinks she may have a little pit bull in her background.

So nice to see faces of all the names I keep hearing about.
Catarina is so white! Very pretty!
Doobie cracks me up. What a ball of fur.
Ted seems very refined. Very content.
Poor Ebony. :-( She looks very put upon.
Zeus looks like the heat has got him.
What a quartet Woody! Looks like those three played hard that day.
V...Poor Penny! She has such an elfin face and ears. Love Labs!
Z-Money has such a sweet face. Love the flower.
What a little cutie Chloe is. How do you keep her face so clean?
Tommy...quite the bruiser!
Trubby in the tubby. [g]
Calliecat looking right into the camera...lol.
Zoe and Nick could be twins.
Nice to see Charlotte again. :-)
Cats certainly seem to like containers.
Two years in the bathroom? Didn't you name the turtles?
MeToo that is the sweetest photo..lol
Vita & Minou look so alike...they could be siblings!
Ein such an intelligent face. A Corgi?
Newt is very dramatic looking! LOVE that plant behind him. Succulent?
Evie, part Siamese?
Felony...? What a name!
Joseph does look a little left out. [g]
Zack and Molly, what a contrast!
Psycho Kitty...still looking Psycho! I think it is the eyes and expression.
Kathy...that photo is hysterical. The cat is as big as the dog...lol. See they don't need toys...just boxes!
Doobie cracking me up again! Resting with such enthusiasm. :-)

Okay, whose missing?

I just noticed that my photo of Felony in the tree has her looking down at Joseph below like in a Brady Bunch window, lol!

Get a life? No way!

That Chloe means business, and V's pack seems very good-natured. Zeus would be at home at Woodstock, what a hipster. And does that Emma look focused!

Marian's cats look experienced and wise (like her)

Dunno how Rex manages to be regal and silly at the same time, but he does. There's a bit of Marmaduke there for sure. From our hall of fame, Polly looks like our Hooper, and Flo our Tigger, who taught Joseph everything he knows. Tigger had real gravitas.

I haven't seen a bidet since Paris!

Kathy, our Evie is also a Psycho Kitty. Who knows how it happens, but she's definitely odd. Maybe living with mom her whole life did it, ya think?

Ahh...the gaze Chelone...yup, it gets me every time! I can't look into Scout's eyes without melting! :-) But "gaze" or not, I can see why you hate dogs, especially Rex...what a beauty! LOL on the bidet pic...I nearly spilled my water laughing!

All these precious pet pictures really got to me. I'm afraid to comment, as not wanting to leave *anyone* out...they are all very special. To me *all* animals are beautiful! But got to admit Marian...I've always *adored* Tommy...he has such beautiful coloring and such a sweet face! Happy Birthday Emma! P.S. Monique really enjoyed a peek of your beautiful gardens! LOL Kathy! What a precious pic of the sleeping kitty. Ein is adorable Denisez! And Chloe what a precious little pumpkin. Catarina is gorgeous! Okay, I'm going to stop now because I can't comment on all the sweet pics that made me smile....

Well besides my Scout, I only have the fish and they are hard to photo, so I guess I'll have to remedy the situation by including lots of pics of Scout...darn! LOL!

Here's the light of my life:


Looking through his photos, I am reminded how much Scout enjoys being in the garden with me and I with him...

From a few years back...the *head gardener* is checking out the newly potted plants! "Personally, I think she should have moved the coleus closer to the center" :-)

This spring. See Kathy, Scout's allowed to lay anywhere he wants too! :-) Actually, he has never damaged a single plant in the garden...at least not permanently...LOL!

He also has a great sense of humor and loves to play hide and seek in the garden (honestly)! He thinks it's funny, but he doesn't know how my heart races everytime he "hides" on me...LOL! Can you see him here?


Last summer:


Here's his most recent shot, lolly gaging (is that how you spell it?) on the porch...his favorite passtime! :-)


And a long shot of WB...he's been awesome this year:

Looking forward to another wonderful summer in the garden with Scout and love and joy to all the sweet pets and their human families...

What a fabu-fabu thread this has been ÂWe even got Eileen and Monique to come out and play ! Ei, Scout is truly one beautiful dog, and looks very decorative set-off by your likewise beautiful garden.

Denise , I love the majestic pose on the shot of Ein . A bit of Âready for my close-up Mr DeMille going on there. And the felines , a very attractive bunch.

And what a plethora of photos we got of the imposing Rex ! I particularly like the standing sofa shot.

And as for Chloe, who can resist that face ? How much does she weigh Cindy ?

I too admire TommyÂs markings- and Spencers as well. I always like the gray or black combo colored cats.

Happy Birthday Emma !

About time for Deanne to weigh in with some pics of those kitties of hers ..

Spencer's coat reminds me of Woody's Misty.
Polly ...love the bib and mittens, she looks calm and curious.
Vera looks like she is about to smile.
Bobby looks pretty comfy. Love that color.
Flo doesn't look like Bobby much...more like Wrecks. [g]

I want to know how much brushing Scout requires to look so gorgeous in every shot you take, Ei.!

I love the "hipster" Zeus. He definitely has the streetwise look to him, Saucy. LOL about checking for a pulse.

I think Monique's terriers are pretty cool looking... the wirey hair and the intensity of the "gaze" leaves little doubt as to their tenacity. I'd wager Oliver or Emma would whip ol' Rexsie into shape in about 10 seconds.

And that Chloe... "what a face for ice cream", as my father used to say. I want to know how much she weighs, too!

V.'s canine slumber paHty made me chuckle. "Red dawg" certainly has earned her "stripes", huh?

Now cats... . I have a particular fondness for the brown tigers/tabbies. Trubbie is beautiful, and Deanne's two... clearly the brown coloring is successful camouflage. The "calico" coloring is interesting, too, manifested most handsomely in Ted and Evie (also in Spenc. and Polly). I find the all grey models arresting, too (had two of those, Millie and Mr. Sleek). Jerri, do you have to worry about sunburn on those very pink ears?! And well... I, too, have a thing for orange kitties (so did my father and so does my brother); there is just something about that neon spendor.

Mum always called poor Spencer, "the common one" but we both agreed he was "uncommonly common". This has been a thoroughly delightful thread. The only things missing are shots of Cynthia's pool-paHty.

Miss Chloe is an absolutely certified AKC purebred Maltese, of course..... you can see it in her regal attitude, LOL. I do recall those days when she couldnt climb a stair -- the breeder said it would be another month or two after I got her - it took one week at home -- of course, she figured out how to get up the stairs, but not Down them.... that took another week. Chloe has been one of the most mischevious dogs I've ever owned, including the first Maltese I had for 12 years. You're going to likely have your hands full of fun and fluff, Anita - and yes, the housebreaking is one of the biggest challenges. Good luck.

Tequila is sooo cute! I never used to like small dogs - until Misty moved in and I realized little dogs don't necessarily think they are little! They can have full sized personalities.

Sarah is beautiful saucy. What is Maxx and Mugsy? Can't remember the name of your dog in the last pic...is that a German Shepard? Growing up we had a black GS named Duke. He looked just like yours. Yes, very hard to keep track of Tequila getting underfoot...very easy to hurt them by stepping on them.

woody...I always hear that about little dogs. They're just not afraid of anything, I think because they don't know they're dogs!! LOL.

Maxx and Mugsy are Shi Tzus. Definately a breed to investigate before leaping into cuteness.

Zeus came to us at age 5 (I think he's around 9 or 10 now) and we were told he was a shepard mix....but isn't that what they call all mixed breeds?

Funny to see Zeus open is mouth really wide to the smaller guys, and everyone snaps to attention and falls in line with what Zeus wants. He's Alpha.

I agree, Anita, this thread would push anyone over the edge....I didn't even get Popcorn in yet :)

Boy, they sure are cute, Jerri. Do they all have homes to go to when the time comes?

Jerri, the brown one looks like my good friend next-door, a pitbull mix named "Ginger." We became fast friends across the low fence early on, and a good thing too, since she's been filling guard dog duty and can be quite fearsome. Your pups are so adorable. Wouldn't it be nice to have the room for a pack of dogs?

I've been staying far, far, far away from this thread. Still no budging Rich into anything with four legs and fur in the house. Fish won't cut it for me since lap time would be severely limited. I trying to maintain the "it's really okay with me" attitude but ......

I respect his feelings -- though it's getting harder. Not quite ready to just show up with a creature, despite the promise that according to Chelone regular beatings could be perpetrated to the critter's benefit :_))))))

Perhaps I could remove the vole traps, tell him they didn't work, and lobby for a kitten??? LOL

I've been meaning to post this picture for weeks. We moved Bella's little toddler bed out of the office to be replaced with the daybed and the cats staked claim. They liked it so much it's still sitting in the corner of my livingroom. Here are all 10 in one place, including Buttercup, not something often seen.

Eden, I love it!
That looks like our crew except they don't get along that well. LOL

We never had that many cats back in our cat-owning days but the ones we did have never got along that well! Very cute picture!
