    I have more stories than photos. I just struggle with getting photos from my camera to my computer. But Hero is wonderful. When I was winding up a long phone call with an old friend today he came trotting up the stairs with an empty baggy in his mouth. (He is part yellow Lab). It was the bag that had contained his new neon green snow booties this morning. While still on the phone, I had to say, "Leave it" a few times. Then he started to chew my calendar which I had out to plan our next phone call with my friend. She is a huge dog lover so I kept up a running commentary to her about his antics as he was doing everything. Then I remembered that in a previous phone call we had had he had chewed my address book right on the page where her name was so that the book automatically opened to her phone number. (That address book was out on my bed, too.) Since Hero was pawing me it hastened the end of our phone call, which w had been trying to wrap up anyway. But it was cute. At least if you are a dog lover. :))

    Missy I am terribly allergic to our 2 babies, but I just dose up on anti histamines and kiss them anyway! DSC_0565.JPG

    @Weeivy73 aww sorry but glad you are able to do it. So many of us are allergic to cats and dogs...my whole family is allergic and my sister is a veterinarian. Her pediatrician who was an allergist as well (my sister has severe allergies) was adamant about her not becoming a veterinarian which was her dream from when she was a little girl. See how she listened to him haha.

    And same here when I developed bad allergies to the cats (allergic asthma and hives). I adopted the rescue kitties in my twenties but didn't become allergic till my early 30s. The pulmonologist said I had to get rid of them and then my allergic asthma and hives would go away. I got rid of the pulmonologist instead. :cheeky:

    My dh was terribly allergic to cats and dogs and has successfully been getting allergy shots for well over 2 decades with no regrets.

    Our lives are richer for having our fur babies in them. We will always do whatever we need to in order to keep our furbabies in our lives. There is no acceptable alternative. It's the only choice. Our fur babies [​IMG] are part of our family.:kiss2:

    Just accidentally stumbled upon this video from about ? a year ago. One of our feral cats gave birth to 3 sweet kittens who we were able to place in good homes. Thought some of you would enjoy this.

    missy-

    I just love the grey eyes on those kittens. I have seen blue eyes on puppies. Do kittens have grey eyes rather than blue? Or are these kittens' eyes in the process of changing as they mature? Whatever the case, their eyes are riveting. And, of course, they are gorgeous all 'round. I am so glad they have happy, safe homes!

    Hugs,
    Deb :))

    Wow, missy! You certainly covered the topic of eye color in depth. I think when I initially asked the question I had forgotten that you are an eye doctor! Thank you very much!

    Hugs,
    Deb :wavey:

    PS-The kittens pictured in the link are unbelievably cute! Blue-eyed furballs!

    My daughter took this photo of Hero yesterday. If you remember any of his earlier photos, you can see that he has filled out a bit since we got him in July of last year. People are guessing that he is now one and a half or two years old.

    Good luck, sunnyside! Post more photos of your gorgeous boy once you have taken your exams (boards?). I am sure your dog learned a lot about surgery during your ordeal. I know that my dogs always stick their heads into whatever projects are going on around the house, whether it be building a fence or cleaning the refrigerator, and they certainly stick their heads in my books, sometimes trying to eat them. They are great apprentices!

    Hugs to you,
    Deb

    I think you look beautiful @chemgirl

    This picture is a little dark but I thought it was so cute that the cat and dog were laying together. Then I noticed our big black dog was also!

    This is my baby Maeve!
    She always lays on the bath mat with her side against the tub for some reason. It’s very cute!

    This is my black pug Franklin telling the vet nurse he’s had enough of having his claws clipped by putting his free paw over the one being done.

    He’s usually a chocolate-black rather than a deep velvet like he looks here but he’s a very squishy delight and I adore him and his cheekiness

    Our sweet angel Francesca now easily accepts her aero chamber treatments of steroid inhalation and albuterol inhalation four times a day due to her moderate-severe lung inflammation. Took time to get her to accept the treatments but now she's doing it like the brave little trooper she is. Love this sweet baby so freaking much.

    We just adopted 2 youngsters from the RSPCA last week. They were brought in in September after being found in the road. They were in the hospital being treated for ringworm and cat flu for 5 months. They are only 7 months old.
    George and Mildred (they have their own instagram!) :lol:
