Since i just got a new puppy and i was curious as to the pets everyone else has, but I dont want to turn the chat thread into the pet talk thread, so i figured it would be cool to start a thread for everyone to show off their pets.

Here is Kiba, my new Shiba Inu puppy. He is 11 weeks old and an awesome addition to our family.




So how about it Rats, show your pets!!

Loc: Outside, anywhere
I have a pair of Mainecoon cats, one male and one female. The male weighs 33 pounds; the female weighs 23 pounds. Neither is fat. The male can stand on hind legs and put front legs on the kitchen counter to see what I am doing (especially if there is red meat of any kind on the counter).

We also have a dog (toy poodle) and two cockatiels. Then there are the barn cats, the deer, the turkeys, the opossums, the raccoons, a fox and a coyote who all live outside with me. smile

Don't have pets so much as hunting dogs, but they are some of my best friends smile





Congratulations on that new pup, WW. He really is a beautiful dog.

Sounds like rats commingle with other animals great smile

Love the pics too,

Ian what kind of dog is that? I love seeing dogs that dont mind jumping in some water. Most the ones i have had were scared of the water, we did have 1 when i was younger who loved to swim, but that one was an oddball

HK, A nice group you got there, they look like some great workers and companions.

He's a great looking pup, WW.

My dog is an Australian Kelpie, they really are for working and need a lot of space, otherwise they go stir crazy.

My wife goes out hunting possums in the bush everynight with it. grin
As soon as the dog detects a possum, it stays under the tree and waits for my wife to find it with the torch. laugh

The bloody dog will go day and night if you let it.

I have seen them in suburbia where bordom turns them into chasing cars, or running around and around the yard until they wear a track a foot deep. At home here she acts like any normal dog, if it is a cold morning she will take off down the paddock at full speed, race out through the bush and run for a couple of miles, then come back ready for her breakfast. laugh

They are totally devoted to their owners and bond more strongly to one. They also live to an old age and up to 20 is not uncommon.
They are great workers on sheep and cattle.

Cheers, Ian.
