Austin, Texas. Are you nearby? Looking?
post #22 of 99
Here are SOME of mine

http://tnrgliders.com/index.php?modu...unc=main&gid=3

All the cats and dogs are rescues in with their own crazy little stories. The rabbits are all pedigree show rabbits but they'll probably never get shown again and my rabbit Livingston (a 14 lb flemish giant) is neutered now.

I'll try to get the rest uploaded to my website today. And better kitty pictures too.

I have a kazillion pictures in my signature links, but right now we have

-at home: Clue, 7-mo-old Cardigan Welsh Corgi. She is our first foray into dogs under 50 lb and we LOVE her. She is the most in-tune-to-me dog I've ever owned, and super fun and clever.

Tosca, 9-year-old Maine Coon Cat. She has no need for people. She loves sleeping on the kids' legs at night, but otherwise spends most of her time upstairs where she can't be touched or looked at too hard. She's not scared, just aloof. She got that way after she ran out the door and didn't come back for a YEAR. We thought she was dead for sure, but she had just gone feral. But then one day we saw her in our woods, and we captured her and reacclimated her to the house, at least as much as she will be acclimated! She's happy, just not cuddly.

Away: Mitch, 4-year-old Great Dane boy, whom I love and adore but who is MUCHO happy with his girl, who came to our rescue when we needed a place to stash Mitch while we were househunting and ended up keeping him.

I also co-own about half a dozen Danes across the country, and we have a revolving door of Danes coming in and out while their owners are on vacation and so on.

The doggish family WILL grow--I am a multiple-dog person through and through. No idea when the next one will come, but it'll happen. In fact, I *may* be fostering a Weim puppy pretty soon; it's a ticklish situation where the family are fed up and want to get rid of the puppy, but don't want to go through rescue. If I can get my hands on him, he'll stay here until rescue has a place for him.

he sleeps in an XL crate with the chug at night and when i'm not home, and the only time he howls/whines is when i first get up in the a.m. or get home from being out, and that's only because he's excited. otherwise he's not too noisy. as far as the energy level goes, he's kinda manic--he's either totally crashed out on the couch, or he's up and playing hard with the other 2. he loves to run in big laps around our yard (we're on a triple lot, so for the city it's a nice big fenced yard) while the other 2 try to catch him. we call him nascar jim since he's from the south and nascar is actually considered a sport there (and a popular one at that!)

Zamber, we should have a kitty playdate!

They're gorgeous, every one of them. I don't think I have a single shot with all five of ours. I see this as a challenge!

Leo! Leo is the beautiful one! I love his expression!

My Leo? He's seriously the closest thing to an angel I have ever seen. I honestly believe he came to us from a higher power. And I'm not a person who generally says that kind of thing.

If you're serious, let me know. I have a hound rescue cohort who is much closer to your neck of the woods who may be able to help you out.

Zamber, would you mind if I posted a photo of leo on another board? He's amazing and I would love if some of the cat genetic freaks over there could explain his blue eyes and white patch happening with tabby. (unless of course you can explain it to me!)

Sure you can! Only his name is Phantom, not Leo.

D'oh! I knew as I was typing it in that I probably got the name wrong!

Thanks, I'll let you know what they say

Cool! Oh yeah, DH pointed out to me to also ask how the tip of his tail got white too (he has never seen a tabby with a white tipped tail either). I did see his litter mates(I made the uninformed decision to buy him from a pet store, and he was clearly weaned and neutered way too early. The other cats were given to me.), and they were all tabbys, and one of his brothers had one blue eye and one green eye.
post #38 of 99
The brother with the odd eyes, did he have any white patches on him? I think that the eye color corresponds to the white patch, but it's usually all white cats that have the blue eyes or the odd eyes, so your guy is so striking!

Here's some of my fuzzy horde:

I bred all 3 of the ASDs, & all 3 have CGC certificates; had as many as 10 at one pt, but have numbers way down - my breeding bitches are on co-ownerships w/a friend right now.
Sim - 10 yr old Anatolian, retired Ch., only got 1 leg on his CD, but it got him HIT at a Nat'l Specialty , retired flock guardian - he's my good 'ol boy who I take for lesuirely walks w/DD.
http://shahbazinanatolianshepherds.c...es/simlamb.jpg

Disi - Another ASD, just turned 5, one of my current working dogs - a sweet girl, puts up w/her pest of a nephew (& working partner), Ruh.
http://shahbazinanatolianshepherds.c...ges/disihd.jpg

Ruh - 3 yr old ASD, good flock guard, but full of energy - needs 3 more pts. to finish (Ch.), & I hope to do more training w/him again when the DC are older. We've done some rally, which is really fun!
http://shahbazinanatolianshepherds.c...es/dsruhbw.jpg

Pip - DH's black & white 12 yr old Staffy Bull X - found him on a country highway when he was about 5 months, neat old boy.
http://shahbazinanatolianshepherds.com/pipspage.htm

Some of the girls, & my senior ram, Leo - a flock of Shetland sheep:

Not that we can recall. Phantom was the only one that had white on him if I am remembering correctly. The rest were just straight tabbys. I want to say there were 5 of them?
