Thought it'd be fun to start a photo thread of pictures that AREN'T fish-related. If you want to share them - post them up! :-D
I'll be back to post some later. . . when things quiet down around here. . .

Hahahaha, did I cause this? Well, if so, I may as well be first. I love the name of the thread, that's funny. You will hopefully not regret making this thread...because I will put up a thousand photos...

I'll share my weasels(ferrets) with you guys first. :3

That's Coopers fuzzy little butt hanging out of the hammock last night, I couldn't resist. =)


And my darling girl Ren, she looks big in this photo, but she's tiny, earning her the nickname "Little Bird Ren" even though the bird one is spelled Wren. She was a year old last December. =)


Here's Ren, Crybaby Cooper the chunky male ferret(he got that name because he whines like a puppy, has since he was teeny tiny baby, he'll be one year old on the 22nd of January), and Leo the Cat, or as my friends call him: Pillow Cat!



Crybaby Cooper sleeping in my grandma's shoe...:


Super Pillow Cat Leo:


Cooper the night I got him, he was only about six weeks old, they're not allowed to sell them that young, but they messed up the shipment because they're dumb...and didn't want to send him from Colorado BACK to New York again(yes, dumb people exist everywhere, I can go on and on about how poor fish are treated, but this was just plain dangerous! He was only a little over five weeks when they sent him across the states in freezing weather, he still needed mom!)...and since I have experience with babies far too young, I got him. Well, he got me. ^^; He whined like a puppy and climbed up my arm when I was reaching for another ferret, I didn't even see him. lol Thankfully he ended up at a Petco where they had a woman who knew all about ferrets and she kept him eating properly before me. =)


Here's Ren with my little cousin, she LOVES kids. We don't let her hold them often, even though Ren would like her to. She's old enough, but sometimes I worry anyways.


Here's one of my other cousins with Cooper. He's actually EXTREMELY excited about his hat, he loves that silly hat.


Here's my cats Leo and Benni, it was cold. lol


Annnd, I figure I should embarrass myself, no those sheets are NOT mine, mine were in the wash...I swear. LOL This is me and my dog, Boomer. He snuck in with me one day, I think he was cold. My grandma saw my door open the next morning and couldn't resist snapping a photo. Oh, I got her back when she fell asleep on the couch with a bad hairday. HA! She claims it was morning, but I can see it's still dark and I still have wet hair from my shower, so I think she did this all on purpose for a photo.


And here's the one I CAN show you of her without her killing me. This is the woman who hated my ferrets, hated them BEFORE I got them, screamed and ran from the one with her now after I got them...and then obviously they got to her, it's impossible not to fall in love with them. Aside from Cooper and my cat and dog, my grandma is the ONLY other person Ren will crawl in and sleep with. ^^l

Ok Here goes!
For those of you who call me "JACKIE".... It is in fact JAKE-IE. My User name is my dog's nickname. JAKE is a 10 year old Miniature Schnauzer. He is also called Jakiebabie, JakeZee, Little Man, Budd, Bear... and "Hey!! Be Quiet!". He's a bit of a Yapper when someone comes to the door. He is missing quite a few teeth so his tongue hangs out.
This little man know exactly what he wants, when he wants it, and it's usually wanted now! He knows exactly what time dinner is! The rest of the time he is asleep on the couch. :-D

Willow! NICE shots there! What a beauty. . . wow! I want to know all about him!

Jakie - you already know I love your puppy :) SOOOO CUTE! I love the other pup you've posted pics of, too. I don't remember his name, tho :( But he's a cutie!

Sylver - YES! YOU did cause this. . . *giggle* remember how you 'spammed' my thread with random pictures today? That. *nods* Was my inspiration! (I don't miund the spam, btw, lol) You should post those pics up, too - I don't think a lot of people really look at my tank thread, so it might have been a wasted effort, but some of those shots are gorgeous, share them with everyone! I love all the furrababy pics, too! <3

I haven't had much time to upload anything today, but I WILL! This'll be an awesome thread!

Oh my gosh what CUTE puppies! And Bearded Dragons! *_* I used to have an Iguana named Ikris. lol She was awesome...yes, she. She was named when we thought she was a boy, she was only about seven inches long when I got her, she grew to five and ahalf feet long. She woulda been bigger, but she had an accident with her tail when she was growing. =/ Thankfully that was the ONLY accident we ever had.
Well, I can re-post those photos later on, but that will require me to find them again in my masses of thousands of photos. LOL Took me about an hour to find them all this morning. ^^; I've got hundreds of those, I just thought I'd give some of my best talked about shots. I'd really like to find the one I got of our mass of sparrows flying around the bird feeder in a blizzard.

Hehe, can't resist this photo, Leo actually got stuck in my little cousins costume wings himself, I just took advantage of the situation with my camera.



And my mothers demon dog Gizmo for Halloween, you can't tell me that doesn't look perfect.


How many dogs do you see in this photo? Lol Yes, four, the one on the table is one I was dog-sitting, he's a stinker. Boomer is on the couch, Gizmo with his cute puppy cut(not so devilish anymore) and Maggie, our old yellow lab who unfortunately passed away last year is out on the floor too. I should probably explain Maggie's tummy. We adopted her from a shelter, she was supposed to have been spayed...well they missed, so the poor girld had to go through it again. =( The dumb things some people do!


These two are adorable and cuddly. =)


Juvenile Benni, sleeping in the clothes again, he was only like...four or five months old, it was still winter. =)


Who doesn't like intelligent bugs?! These things are like aliens, I love them. We don't get them often, but this year we had a huge swarm, first one I EVER saw...landed on my face while I was outside on the trampoline. xD I almost died, scared me! But this one here fell in the pool, I put him on the side and he was watching me. :3 After he left, I emptied the pool so no more awesome creatures would die or attempt it.


Boomer and Benni, Boomer has bed-head. lol



Boomer at Saint Mary's Glacier, looks like a wave is headed our way, eh? lol



Part one....:


Part two...:


Yes, my friend turned it into an lolcap, can't find the original:



Leo learned from Benni....


Terrible me, I almost forgot Myrrh. She lived to be 20 years old, she passed away at the beginning of last year.


OH, I also forgot Houdini, a little injured baby bunny I found in our window-well. He unfortunately did not live long after he healed because my mothers dog...well, she came over unannounced. T_T Well, don't be too depressed, he was wild born but injured bad enough he couldn't be returned, it wouldn't have been much of a life with humans, even though he was a good cuddler, and he was spoiled at the end, loved strawberries. I had the pleasure of his bunny kisses and cuddling for about six months after this photo was taken, he got very big, he fit in my hand when I found him. Since my cat is the one that injured him and dumped him in the well, I figured I'd doctor him up and release him, unfortunately his back leg worked, but not well enough he could escape our neighborhood foxes.



And yeah...old photo of me, thought you guys might want to see the creep behind the glass. Yes, I have red hair, but keep in mind both of my parents are blonde.... It was -34F outside and I was by the window, also had some problems with my sight at the time so I had to wear sunglasses on the comp or in any bright light. lol No, I don't dress that way normally! xD

Sylver... you post too many pictures to comment on individually, so I'm just gonna have to cover everything with a big fat AWW! FUZZY! CUTENESS! I do really like the fairycat and demondog - and BUNNIES! I swoon for bunnies... AND? NO FAIR! You can't post pictures up so we can 'see creep behind the glass' and have the picture be hiding EVERY FEATURE of your face - and declare it 'old' at that! I call foul! It's MY thread, I officially deem THAT against the rules. *sulks*

Jakie - YES! DILLON! Thank you for that - he's just such a sweetie! I remember the pictures of. . .was it Dillon? watching your tanks? LOL. Too cute... I actually bullied my fuzzyfriends into a proper photoshoot a few months ago. Do you know I haven't had a chance to even LOOK at those pictures yet? Argh... I'll have to get on that, and upload a few for you. I have two pups and a kitty. :) Luff them. . . So Jakie is your grandpuppy, right? LOL, that's too cute. But why is your SN after that dog and not your own? This has always confused me. . .

Hrm... I can post pics of my HUMAN babies without dealing with uploading! Got THOUSANDS of those on Photobucket. . . no exaggeration. . .if you like people babies.

Hahahaha, because I was covered up it WAS creeping behind the glass, and the photo is about six years old. >_>; I don't think I have any new ones, but some less old ones without as much cover. Not big on sharing my face though....Hrm...Yeaaah, bad lighting and I was tired. And when I say creep this time...I mean I'm creep-y. LOL Well, no, I'm not. But you know how people are when posting themselves! So yes, Snow White enters the building, and no, it's not -just- the light(didn't help matters though), I really am pretty much paper white. ^^; Can't call foul this time, no hiding. HAPPY? xD I got a little larger in the last six years. That happens when kids are involved...and YES, I LOVE BABIES!

This photo is only about a year old, a tad more. I've since had my hair cut off and I donated it last christmas, the one before this last one...yeah. c.c I had about two feet of hair(this is what I looked like AFTER donating), thought I'd share. My hair is only just barely able to get into a ponytail right now, I've been keeping it shorter since. I'm gonna grow it out and donate it again next christmas though.

No Jakie is mine. My SN?
Sawyer (black), Charlie (Coon Hound) and Lakota (Husky) are my grandbabies!! They all love their Grammy.

Here they are all together! Sorry for the crappy pic, it's a screen shot off a cell phone!

right on, they are so awesome! Eh, I suppose I like just about all dogs though. lol But there are a couple I'm more inlove with...rotties, pitbulls, briards, newfoundlands, already said hounds of all kinds really...:3 Bunch of mutts. Haha.

Ah, I'd take a new photo of me for you guys, but I'm going through something odd...I dunno if it's still an allergic reaction to my cory sting yesterday or if it's something else, but I look and feel like I've got the chicken pox. x.x Already had those, wouldn't it be just my luck to get it twice or have the other nasty that comes with it? @[email protected] Well, I'm completely covered from head to toe in very sore, itchy spots. T_T I thought my bad day ended yesterday, but nope! Hurt my back and turned into Spot. LOL Haha, oh well. I'll roll in calimine or however it's spelled and go to bed again, maybe it'll work this time!

My dog doesn't have it much better, he's had two surgeries in the last two months, one to fix his Cranial Cruciate ligament(it's like the ACL in a human leg), that he tore completely in half, most likely chasing a rabbit. x.x And today he got a tooth removed because he had a tumor growing on his left front canine on the top. We thought it was just on the skin, wasn't, took over his tooth and tried for the bone to boot, and we wont know what it was for a few weeks. =(


Oh wait, edit in here....this is how he looked a few days after his first surgery, we wanted to include him in christmas stuffs. ^^; I know, I'm so mean!

HAHA! That poor puppy, he really HAS had a rough winter. . . so have you! I hope you feel better soon, Chicken pox is bad enough - SHINGLES is pure torture, from what I've heard. Lets just hope it's hives, that's more likely. . . I hope! Thanks for putting an end to the creeping! I think you're cuuuuuute! I took a few pictures of me - true self-portrait style. I could post 'em if it'd make you feel better. :)

Aaaah! Jakie, thanks for clearing that up! SOOOO many dogs! Gets my brain all confused! Cute ones, tho. :)

HEY! I know what I can post - these are already uploaded, too! Bonus - no effort necessary ;) I had these AWESOME bugs in my yard this summer. . . they're called Oak Treehoppers and I've NEVER seen them before there were thousands on ONE branch on my Pinoak tree. . . REALLY neat-looking critters.

Those bugs are awesome. I'd love to see more cool critters around here. Some are coming back, used to have a lot of wildlife before they started building useless giant parkinglots and tiny buildings people never go to...constantly open for rent. >_>; Problem is, I hate when people mess with them and put them in jars...I mean I do very rarely to relocate if they're in the house or something, or in the mantis case...never seen one, took a few photos and let it go without touching it much....but my cousin, she catches things and keeps them in jars until they die or mushes them on purpose, it makes me SO mad. <_<; So after the initial excitement of finding a cool critter, I get this horrible "Ugh, she's gonna find it and kill it. =-=" thing going.
The absolute worst one was finding a venomous snake and telling the kids not to go near it ever, they go hunting for it. @[email protected] I can't remember what it was, something that is usually not in this part of the state, but does live here and around the edges of it. I think it was a copperhead....So I went and scared the poop out of the little stinkers. Mean, but they didn't go doing that again. >_>; Kept them from a possible bite, it tried to get me and I was several feet away.

Jeaninel, it *can* turn into a pets thread, but I'll post BUGS and confuse you all ;)

Ugh, covered in spots. @[email protected] They hurt, they itch...they spread. Head to toe, literally. No joke. xD Maybe I'll take a photo and name myself Spot anyways. lol

Those are cute photos. I too like the cats wrestling. The tabby is holding his face like "Stop cleaning me!" That's what mine do anyway.

I have one of those as well, my cats always wrestle. Leo always like to clean Benni, Benni only lets him for a second before he tackles him or chews on him. I would LOVE to get a photo of them when Leo puts his paw in the middle of Benni's forehead and just leaves it there, pushing his head down....but they always move before I can. =( In this one Benni knocked Leo over, and Leo poked him in the eye. xD....Can't find the photo. x.x



Here are my two cousins. I sometimes call them nieces, sorry if I have and confused people. I was raised with their parents like siblings instead of uncles. ^^; My grandparents raised me, even I get confused on what they are sometimes. Oh yeah, the older one KNEW the little one wanted some...but no, she brought her OWN drink, the glares happened. It was EXACTLY like her mother and I were as kids. I was the younger glarey one, she was the older stinkerbomb. :3



This was the first time my cousin ever met a cat that actually liked her...and for good reason. >_>; Let's just say Leo never, ever forgave her. She trapped Leo two days after this photo was taken(This was their very first meeting), and beat him with a fly swatter. You'd think kids would know better at the age of four!! We only told her not to do that stuff daily, Benni hates her for the same reason. ^^; Well, kids are mean and some just refuse to be taught, she got in biiiiig trouble.


Oh yeah, this was the very first photo I ever took of Leo. The day I adopted him. All he'd do is sit in the window and cuddle. I remember I was a little intimidated when I brought him home, he was so big and I didn't know if anything would cause him to bite me or not. NOTHING could get him mad like that though, he follows me like a duckling and loves me. Grandma says he'd die if I ever left him. When I go somewhere, he sits by the door I left from and wont leave it, even to eat, drink or use the bathroom. He did this a whole 24 hours once when I stayed with a friend for a day. ^^;


Ah, well, Boomer may be a shaggy dog, but even he gets cold. lol


Oh yea, remember the part one and part two photos yesterday? Well, Boomer got payback.....Part one!



Annd part two. lo Yes, holy cow at that tongue, none of us knew it was like Kiss until this photol:



Benni's palmface...sorta:


Maggie and Boomer a couple years ago. I called this photo "Opposites attract"


And then not so much:



This was Maggie the day we rescued her. She was covered in dirt, oil and all around filth. I don't understand why the shelter didn't bathe her!


And this is her after I got finished with her. :3 Took about five rinses and re-scrubs. She didn't mind the bath though, long as it was. Although she did hear someone say food at one point and she tried to jump over me to get out...well, she missed and landed on my face. xD

if anyones having trouble finding out about broomation,have a try at googling
Brumation.....it's hibernation to you and me,probably something to do with the
lizards originating from Australia.
bert is 5 years old.he eats locus,wax worms,meal worms,morio worms,lettuce,
mixed greens,he has two sets of lights,UV,and heat lamp,he'll sit under the heat
lamp in the morning then the Uv in the afternoon,his food is dusted with vitamins,
and he has a bath a couple of times a week,i pray he goes to the bathroom at this
time,as he can stink out the living room otherwise (sorry TMI )
he will automatically literally sleep on the spot where he is when the lights get turned off,which can involve me moving him sometimes in case he falls,he likes to climb !
his vivarium measures in at 4x2x2ft nice space to charge about in.

have to say i'm loving all the pets,and especially the bugs !
i adore kids too,i now have 5 grandchildren,and i'm plenty happy about that :-D
