OT: KH's pets
It's occured to me after the recent post for Blue that many of the other KH'ers have plenty of babies to show off...there may have already been a post about this before but I figured this would be a good place for everyone to brag about their little furry ones for a little bit...Below is my little guy Wrigley he's really more like a baby than a dog...he's a total riot and almost always is at my side and has some separation issues...just like many of you he is my knitting companion...

Awww Wrigley is a cutie!

Here's my sweet Foofoo! Yes, that is her name because she's a Foofoo dog. Her breed is Coton de Tulear.

After the groomer -


Fur a little longer -

Playing with her giraffe-

I'll take any excuse to look at pictures of other people's pets and post photos of my own! :D

Three years ago, in June of 2007, I walked into my local shelter with the intention of adopting a cat... and adopt a cat I did! This is Dixon, the day my boyfriend and I brought him home:



He was approximately three months old at this time. I had to wait a day before I could take him home with me because he had not yet been neutered. (He was at the shelter only a few days before I fell in love with him. It's shelter policy to spay and neuter all pets before they're adopted out.) His ears were freakin' satellites atop his head and his tail was ridiculously and adorably long. (I've never seen a dog chase its tail but I've seen Dixon pounce on his own tail! He played with it constantly when he was a kitten.) However, he was generally pretty small:



After all, he fit on my chest! (He would climb up my torso and curl up on my chest. It was cute but very uncomfortable.)

I think he was separated from his mother at a very early age because he developed an oral fixation. He licks any exposed area of my skin for prolonged periods of time and chews on everything:









This is problematic when it comes to my knitting. He's not a wool sucker (luckily!) but he does love chewing on my yarn. He paws at my yarn and stuffs it in his face when he catches it. If he doesn't chew right through it, he just leaves it sopping wet. (Ew.) Here he watches as I photograph a WIP (with the yarn safely placed out of his reach):



Because he's castrated, he's in a perpetual state of kittenhood. He loves affection and attention (he cuddles with me every single morning) and can be very talkative. He's very playful... which makes for a lousy mouse-catcher:



Rather than attacking his prey, he plays with it. My boyfriend and I have to be our own mouse-catchers.

Also? He's HUGE now!


(For perspective, I'm 5'4" and 130 lbs. I have no idea how big he is... but his body is at least as long as my torso.)

He has grown into his ears but his tail is still comically long. I sometimes call him "Question Mark" when he gallops to the door to greet me, with his long tail standing upright in a curved shape.

I love my Dixon and I can't imagine my life without him

Kit is an only dog now, and probably too spoiled to get another.
One when he was young and had a job, one more recent after he retired.
He is huge for a field English Springer Spaniel (70lbs presently).

Its not so much the pot that cracks me up its his expression. He acts like getting stuffed into a pot happens every day.
