    Awww.  How cute is that! :)  (Has anyone told you, you look like Johnny Depp?  lol.)

    Just came upon this thread.  Love looking at all the furry friends. Sorry, though, about the losses.

    My thoughts are with you my friend. It is what it is. I hope you can feel better soon.

    It was a bad situation, she was just a couple weeks short of two years old. Being the breed she was, Pyrenees Mastiff, she was very guarded and fearless. We have wild boar in the area and 3 came into the yard while she was in her outdoor area and it's apparent that 2,2 meter fencing wasn't high enough and she jumped it and took on the boars. By the time I got outside with a baseball bat she had run off 2 and was tangled up with the 3rd. We got the last one( I brained it) but she was injured pretty bad. Vet is 5km up the road but it was best to lay her to rest. Police got a couple hunters to track and destroy the other 2. She was a damn brave girl.

    Sweet. He looks so cute....

    My beloved Guinnes got killed by a black mamba in February.

    So sad...

    I picked up this one about 6 moths ago from a family that moved out of the country:

    Here's the 40 pounds of rescue kitties we share our bed with every night. We adore them and they run our lives. BTW, the orange ones insist on 'helping' me cook.

    KT is still mostly going strong at twelve plus. She is arthritic and shows no interest in running at the beach any longer but still gives me a run for my money around the house.
