Animal People United

post your animal related woes here.

POSTED: Sat Nov 09, 2013 9:27 pm

So, I said we should unite, and here I am, making a thread so we can. This here is to be a wonderful place where we cannot be judged for our need for animal attention.

I think we all know that feeling of "Oh my Gods, that is so cute, I must have it right now!" And not being able to have it. In general I think this mostly applies to animals for many of us. So this thread is for us to share the animals that have evaded us; the dogs, cats, bunnies, ponies, snakes and spiders and all manner of beasties that we have been denied.

Pictures and stories, moaning and whining are allowed. I know I will be doing a lot of whining and moaning as I am stuck in a hellhole where I am not allowed cats or dogs at the moment, so it is all especially hard for me, seeing as they are all I want.

Please, share away.

I feel like we need a banner or some other sort of graphics for this. XD

I get a newsletter from the animal shelter I adopted one of my cats from. There was a story about an old english sheepdog that came in as a stray. My dream dog? A rescued old english sheepdog! Except... my apartment only allows cats (and only 2 of them at a time), and I wouldn't be able to afford a dog right now anyway. DDD: -grabby hands- Maybe I'll be that weirdo who calls them asking if anyone has surrendered a tarantula.

Oh mannn. I get grabby-hands around a lot of pets, but I know better than to actually take them home, especially with apartment restrictions. I can usually handle myself around adoptable doggies, since I've done shelter volunteer work for years and only once did I end up taking one home. <3 But there was a puppy up for adoption over the internet that totally claimed my heart, and I had to talk myself out of it because I was afraid my rambunctious shelties would break him. ;; He was an itty bitty baby Italian Greyhound, barely turning eight weeks old, asdsdas. I was going to buy him a little rain coat and a sweater, because he didn't like being cold. He was going to be my little fancy gentleman and sleep on my lap while I sat at the computer. ;__;

I deleted the actual photo because it made me sad, so here is a Google image that looks just like him. I hope he found a loving home, dammit!!

I visited a Papillon breeder yesterday.. this was a big thing for me, I've never been into toy breeds and I've fallen hard for this one ARGH. I said to the breeders that I've never really found the breed for me - I love my Corgs and my Collie, I love all dogs really, but I clicked so well with the Paps, they had the most engaging personalities.
And it's killing me because the bf is against it and my dad would be too. I feel like they'd fit well with me and they'd get to do agility, HTM, obedience.. but nope. And I'm trying really hard not to act depressed about it and I know I'm really lucky to have the dogs I do have, but it's so difficult when I know I could offer a good, active home with loads of time to give.
So basically.. Paps </3

Plus half of the bloody dogs on Dogsblog, I swear I need to turn email subscriptions off!

The banner should definitely be a thing. We should have a banner. I'm poopy with graphics though, so somebody else would have to do it.

I volunteer at the RSPCA center near me every Sunday, the only reason I'm not in today is because I'm puking my guts up. I fall in love with dogs and cats on a regular basis and repeatedly have my heart broken. To name a few:

1. Barney, the Rottweiller. This was a couple of years ago now, when I was doing my year 10 work experience. He was the most soft hearted, soppy, intelligent Rotty I had ever met. I fell in love with him, he was the perfect dog for me, but mum and dad said no and I had to watch him go to another family.

2. Brad, the silver Tabby. Again, a few years ago now, when I was doing my college work experience at the center. A silver tabby was brought in as a stray despite being in perfect health, a good weight and with no fleas or ticks. The day he was brought in I was told to sit with him in a separate room in the cattery because we had one of the 'crazy cat ladies' coming in and management knew she would not leave if she saw him. During that hour and a half I fell in love with that damn cat. Again, had to watch him be adopted by another family.

3. Lenny, the Smooth coated Collie crossbreed. This year. He was the sweetest, most loving, non-hyper collie ever. He was my little boy and because I live in this scumhole of a place I couldn't take him. He got adopted too, which is good and all, but I was supposed to have him. He's the dog that I break my heart over, wondering what it would have been like if I could have had him.

I went to Dogs Trust earlier in the year and saw this massive white GSD, he was like one of those fake sheepskin rugs :c My parents will only let me have a small thing and at the moment they're not even willing to buy me that ;-;

And there is this nervy Weimie there, he was beautiful ;-; ... 604jpg.jpg

And this lil German Spitz my Mum thinks looks evil as shit <3 ... 7_w800.JPG

But I'm gunning for a Schnauzer now, and everyone agrees it's a pretty much acceptable breed to go for. "When we have the money", which I'm fairly sure will by my 18th Birthday when I'm able to buy a dog myself >.<

Drew has had to talk himself away from white GSDs muuuultiple times. Because he already has his Angel, a black GSD mix, and my Jake, a black lab mix.

I avoid the shelter like the plague because I want to take everything home. I can't even have my Jakey here, because we "didn't have room" (and yet we got my gramma's goldendoodle just afterward).

Most recently though, I wanted to take my sister-in-law's bundle of energy because he "attacked" her and she was giving him back to the pound, which was probably the best thing for him since she wasn't taking care of him anyway. Pictures shortly. :3

I blame Titmouse. Now I want a Beauceron REALLY badly... D:




I would also love to get me another reptile or amphibian for a pet. Probably a Leopard Gecko, another frog of some kind, a Bearded Dragon or a Chameleon. ^^
