As far as I know, there's no limit on pics, so keep 'um coming.

FYI - The site has personal albums available. You can access it from your Profile. You'll find the Albums in the middle column, just below Friends. Could be a good place to show off your pets or anything else you'd want.

the wife and i adopted a pug - Puff - and he will be two on Saturday so out with the party hats.
We have not had a dog of our own for around twenty years because when they die it is just such a loss.
Our excuse was that we bought a caravan and caravan parks are not very pet friendly here - now I have retired and the kids are all married we have a motor home that we use occasionally and a pug will just be the right size
Puff takes me for a walk every morning for about half an hour which we both enjoy and may even help my condition
I have had a triple bypass operation and did smoke for many years so as you expect i am now paying for that with breathing problems
as a newboy i cannot post a picture of Puff but you can imagine him a perfect little gentleman but maybe i am a little biased

kind regards to all

peter

Well, @peterseaford hurry up and post one more time to get your 5 posts. Then let us see your Puff. I had a pug when growing up. They're nice dogs.

I'm a cat person but also like dogs (and horses, kangaroos, rats, mice, birds...)

I've had a variety of pets over the years, and was devastated when my little tabby Tom had to be euthanased in 2014. I tried to find a replacement (WRONG!) and did not find one. Woke up one morning a couple of weeks ago and decided for some reason to head off to the RSPCA and visit the kitties. Did not think there would be anyone there, but there was. I wanted a tabby or tortie girl, and came home with a tuxedo boy. His name is Toby, and he's a year old. He was an outside cat prior to going to the RSPCA so there is no keeping him in now. However, he's remarkably obedient about coming when called, so we are going OK here.

This is our Puff - two years old on Saturday - we adopted him from Pug SOS last month and he is our wonderful companion.

obedience classes in Frankston each week have helped him and he takes me for a walk every morning

regards

peter

Here's Toby again during his nocturnal adventures which kept me trying to get him down, and him refusing to let me, whilst wailing all the time how cruel I am to leave him on the roof.

I lifted shadows a lot so he was actually visible. It was already getting quite dark.

And he disappeared at 5am this morning, after last night's activity, and has not returned home... Its now 7pm. I can't afford to get stressed, so I won't. I just hope he has the good sense to stay safe. And come home!

I grew up with golden retrievers, Annie Elizabeth and Samantha.

As an adult, I had Bacchus for 13 years. He, at his biggest, was 120 pounds and afraid of his own shadow. During some difficult years, watching him chase a tennis ball was pure therapy for me.

Now I have Snow Belle, who I love dearly, but has some major major fear issues. She's a challenge and we continue to try and find solutions to her anxiety. We thought she was full lab, but found out she's part Australian Kelpie!

Sue, hope the kitty comes home soon.

Meet Chester, my best friend, companion and confidant! He was a rescue from one of the local shelters and is about 8 years old. We've been together now (I think) for six years. I love this little dog beyond description!
