Just had a stroke of genius (or just a stroke ) while replying to post

I would really like to see more pics of our member’s pet. What do you think about
showing or introduce your animal companion to the BL membership here on the forum?

I suggest a new forum subtopic, under Off Topic: Pets

Anecdotes and/or pics of your pets? Maybe of interrupting your lego work or other
mischief. Or just an introduction of your nonhuman companion, new or old. What
your pet did today

Even though we don't have furry companions (son's allergies) we really
enjoy animal pics and stories. Think most do, evidenced by it's popularity
on youtube.

What do think? Think there is enough interest to warrant a sub-topic in the forum?

I think it's a great idea! I love my fur family, which has grown into 6
dogs and 1 cat, all rescues from terrible conditions. The only place off limits
is the Lego room, otherwise they rule the roost.

I can't find any dog pictures on this computer, but they are the same 3 as
my ID pic (just much older).

Here's one for John:

Awesome! Much respect Darcy, for taking-in and caring for so many rescue animals.
Placed your store on our favorites list, I like to support people such as yourself.

I've gotta know, though How does the lone cat fare among the 6 dogs?

BTW, I really like your store's Splash page, beautiful!

Thank you Cory! LOL, as for Kita Kitty, if anyone ever told him he wasn't
a dog, he'd probably be devastated. He's been with dogs since he was
a few hours old, vet said he'd never survive and the kindness thing would
be to euthanize him, yeah, wasn't happening. While we humans did the feeding,
dogs took care of the messy part. Now he's a healthy adult and a full blown
member of the pack. Uses the doggy door to potty, no kitty litter here ewww,
and doesn't leave the fenced yard. Fears no one, except my 4 lb, Chi, but
everybody fears him, so no surprise there.

A beautiful cat. Great job saving his life. Never give up on saving a life.
I got a kitten at one day old and saved her.

John P

Is that her in your profile pic? Looks like she feels very safe & content, thank
you for saving her. Wish more people would realize their lives have value and
learn to be more responsible.

Animal rescue has become very important to me, especially with the shelters being
overwhelmed and the number of healthy animals being euthanized every day. Not
to mention abuse cases/dumping happening in record numbers. Personally, I know
I can't afford to take on anymore and still give them the proper care they
need and deserve. So myself, and a bunch of others in the same situation donate
each month to pay the fees for at risk animals in a local kill shelter. Once
the fees are covered they become eligible for free adoptions or to be pulled
by a rescue. Not ideal by any means, but we're able to save some. Just
a thought to anyone who might read this, there are ways to help, you can advocate
to raise awareness, donate to your local shelter, foster, if you see something
say something, adopt don't shop and above all else spay/neuter. Now that
I sound like an infomercial I'll stop talking.

All good points, Darcy.

John & his wife, have been committed to helping the homeless cat population in
his area for some time now. He is what I would call a warrior of that cause.
For cats anyway.

Back to your original suggestion, I'd like to reiterate, I think it's
a great idea. I learned more about some of my fellow members in 1 day, than
I have in the 15 years I've been here. Obviously everyone here has a love
for Lego, but your pet idea is a great ice breaker. Most members only come here
when they have a question, problem or complaint. Your suggestion would give
interested members a place to take a break, especially from sorting (sigh), lighten
the mood a little and get to know each other a little better.

Well, not strictly my pet. Her name is Stray (because I refuse to name her).
A pretty rough family moved away and left her behind around six years ago. Since
then she has spent most of her life on my bed or on top of me.

She's lovely!

I think Stray is as good a name as any other. It's a reminder of where she
came from, and your role in taking care of her

Thanks, Stu

  Well, not strictly my pet. Her name is Stray (because I refuse to name her).
A pretty rough family moved away and left her behind around six years ago. Since
then she has spent most of her life on my bed or on top of me.


  I would really like to see more pics of our member’s pet. What do you think about
showing or introduce your animal companion to the BL membership here on the forum?

She may not be your pet, but judging from the pic, she sure looks like a well
loved family member. Thank you caring and saving this beautiful baby.

We just had to put down our dog of 15+ years this past Monday. He was a faithful
companion to our family - always letting us know when anyone approached the house


He could be a goofball sometimes but he will be missed. We probably will not
be getting another dog for now (the wife may change my mind .

This was the longest I have ever had a dog (we also had a cat for almost 12 years
as well).

We still have three cats and assorted reptiles and amphibians in our house!
Our two black cats were rescues from the shelter when they were kittens. They
are supposed to belong to my teen daughter but they follow me around the house
and sleep on my bed!

Pets can be a lot of work, but they are nice to have around!

So sorry for the loss of your pet. Or should I say family member. Death
touches all in different ways. When it comes to a pet it lingers with you for
ever. But time does help to think of the companionship and the love between
the two of you and what was added to your life.

I remember you having a big family, Frank. 15+ years... he must of been a major
part of the kid's growing-up years. How'd they take his needing to be
put down?

I suggest a new forum subtopic, under Off Topic: Pets

Anecdotes and/or pics of your pets? Maybe of interrupting your lego work or other
mischief. Or just an introduction of your nonhuman companion, new or old. What
your pet did today

Even though we don't have furry companions (son's allergies) we really
enjoy animal pics and stories. Think most do, evidenced by it's popularity
on youtube.

What do think? Think there is enough interest to warrant a sub-topic in the forum?


Captain Q approves.

Here are two kittens I am keeping of a 4 kitten litter I saved from living a
life as feral cats; named Tenshi and Quark. I found them while feeding some
feral cats. They were too young to capture right away, around 5 weeks, so I
pre-socialized them on the outside with wet food and playing with a cat favorite
toy, the fake bird on a string and stick. Had to do it at night as apartment
management disapproves of feeding the feral cats. Took some night vision video,
that I have not gotten around to editing yet.

Just noticed that the picture is rotated the wrong way, will leave it as is,
because it amuses me.

Regards,
Captain Q

My business partner, Jodi, has an 11 yr old daughter. (We will call her D for
short since I haven't gotten her permission to post D's name.)

D has a passion for saving animals. She started her own business connecting people
with rescue animals. To date she has saved well upwards of 20 animals by connecting
them with people looking to adopt or rescue. She has coordinated (long distance,
across multiple states) the rescue of 6+ animals from a hoarding and abandonment
situation (that had to include the police for safety concerns), found a home
for an abandoned lizard within hours of it being left at the counter of the local
pet store and has most recently begun a beta fish re-hab program to take in the
fish that are too sick to be sold and that by state regulation cannot be medicated
in-store (meaning they would be flushed).

Pets make the world a better place and D is doing everything she can to save
every pet out there. People who save animals in this way are born special.

Just had to give her a shout out.

What great kid your friend Jodi has!

You should get her okay to give her first name, for a proper shoutout.

Thanks for sharing Ginny. I've placed your store on our most favorites list,
I'd like to show support with some business. I assume little Ms. D helps
out with the store, as my kids did at that age.

At the time we were asked to take care of him, we were living in Southern Utah
in and around Zion National Park. Our lives during those years were, to say the
least, adventurous. We were trekking, hiking and climbing just about every area
we could reach. Our friends knew this, when they asked us to care of Oscar. I
told them I would think on it. I worried a dog would just not fit our adventurous
life style at the time. Certainly, such a small dog could not hang with us on
our back country treks, I thought.

But, we really wanted to help Jim and Gloria out, and didn’t want to see Oscar
spend a year in doggy prison (hotel) so we agreed to take the responsibility.

Well, it turned out that Oscar with his stubby legs, was one hell of a adventurer!
He hung with us EVERYWHERE. When it came to climbing, his shape fit perfectly
into my climbing-pack with just his head sticking out, and he didn’t seem to
mind just enjoying the view while I struggled

He was overweight when they left him with us, and by the time they returned they
had half the dachshund they had left us with. Oscar really got into shape that
year! He simply loved the outdoors life!

Now here’s the sad part. When Jim and Gloria returned, we left to spend a year
in Stockholm. They told us that Oscar would go everyday to the front door of
our cottage and sit, waiting for us to open the door for him. I guess it’s true,
dogs don’t have the same concept of time, because we were told he did this throughout
the entire year my kids and I were gone.

It remains one of the saddest thoughts in my long life thinking about this. Even
as I type it, tears flow. Silly!

This is not a pic we took. It is the last pic of our friend, Jim and Gloria took
that they sent to us a couple of years later, just before he passed away...

What a beautiful story, Cory. Sounds like you gave that badger biter the time
of his life.

Before moving, I'd visit a humane society that served as a hub for all shelters
in the valley. I loved the high-energy kennel with the biggest dogs you're
allowed to walk, but also walk the smaller dogs for a quick bowel movement in
parking lot bushes, a block or two. This fat roly-poly kinda thing caught my
eye one day, and we'd walk a little longer every time I stopped by. I guess
he was too fat, because one of the vet-techs told me he'd been put down not
transferred. What a crap day. Sometimes think about whether I would've been
allowed to start a 10 day-hold and other what-ifs. At the end of the day it's
easier just to shrug and say "damn you, world!"

It angers me that people seem so uncaring when it comes to domesticated animals.
While I do not have dogs and do not rescue them (have done three in the last
7 years), when I look into their eyes at the Humane Society I see a longing to
have freedom from the pens and to have someone to love that loves them. We have
four new little kitties coming to eat at night (We feed about 8-10 feral cats.)
They get there early so that they have something to eat. Some of the feral
cats seem to bring them one at a time to eat. Goldilocks, who looks like see
is going to die any day now (has looked that way for over two years now) seems
to bring a couple of them. Not sure what to do, if I try to capture one in a
trap I am afraid that the others will not come to eat.
But back to what I started to post about; never go to a shelter to look around
their back rooms. I was looking for a missing outdoor cat and looked in the
shelters "death" room. 80 to 90 cats waiting to be put down. I could never
go back into that room. It still affects me. I asked if I could take some home
and they said sure, but I would have to pay 130-150 dollars for each one. I
cannot forget the cold look in the worker's eyes.
I guess I just ruined my day.

First, thank you so much for caring for those babies, if not for you many of
them probably wouldn't survive.

Wanted to make a suggestion since you said you have new kittys. Most states
have free catch and release programs. They'll trap them, spay/neuter, vaccinate
and provide medical care if needed, then set them free where they initially trapped
them. Not the ideal solution by any means, but it does help break the cycle.
Plus, in the case of very young kittens, they often go to rescues and onto good
homes instead of being re-released. Might be worth looking into in your area.
They might be a little frightened, and/or miss a meal or two, but they'll
recover very quickly and be much healthier and better off in the long run. As
I said earlier, these programs are completely free.

Hi John. The cats in the public viewing room, sitting on used pillows and beds,
have already been cleared for adoption. Most likely, they were waiting in the
backroom at one point. Glass half-full, some of the cats you saw eventually found
a loving home. And as far as shelter employees are concerned, a kind expression
is a false hope. Don't take it personally. I've seen adoption fees drop
to $60, but it's not a free clinic.

A little late but here is my dog Skragle. I wanted to give him a name that would
be based on something Lego related so I took kragle, from The Lego Movie and
just added an S and I think it fits him perfectly.

He's beautiful!

I like the name, too. Very creative.

What of the noble looking individual you've had as your ID card pic, ever
since I can remember?

Do we get to know more there?

I would really like to see more pics of our member’s pet. What do you think about
showing or introduce your animal companion to the BL membership here on the forum?

I suggest a new forum subtopic, under Off Topic: Pets

Anecdotes and/or pics of your pets? Maybe of interrupting your lego work or other
mischief. Or just an introduction of your nonhuman companion, new or old. What
your pet did today

Even though we don't have furry companions (son's allergies) we really
enjoy animal pics and stories. Think most do, evidenced by it's popularity
on youtube.

What do think? Think there is enough interest to warrant a sub-topic in the forum?

Wiggles favorite place to sleep.

Looks comfy

But hey, dogs sleep on us! I suppose sleeping on a bigger dog will due when a
static human is not available

Well done, Darcy!

We (I do) tend to forget all the ways they help us beyond just being the best,
loyal companion possible.

...and they've been carrying their own weight (in one form or another) since
they decided to throw-in with us hairless two legged types, long ago
