Caucus Critters: Toosdae Trouble: Belated Halloween Edition!

Wild Animal Group animal-welfare-group-photo-v31[1]_0.jpg
We'z a diverse group!

Note: C99 was mighty slow on the uploading of photos yesterdae, so we finally had to give up about halfway through. But next week is way too long after Halloween, and we probably need an election edition next week, don't we? And I wouldn't want to let half a good diaree go to waste. So I present to ye a special Toosdae edition of Caucus Critters! Enjoy!

But first, The Recommendations:

•Our intent is to create a safe place to relax and play; please use common sense and have fun.
•Share any and all pootie/woozle/furry/feathery/leathery photos or issues that you would like.
•When it comes to problems, we may just have someone with experience who can help.
•If you would like a pic from the posts, please ask the poster. He/she may have a copyright to those pics. Many thanks.
•We love critters, so any/all photos that encourage human violence against an animal will be frowned upon and considered out of bounds!

But when I click insert image, it brings up the root file of c99 and not my computer.

FAQ's does not address this either. Suggestions?

Give it a few extra minutes. See if you get a line above "Navigation" that says "Upload," "Resize," and "Send to editor". I just tried it, it is being a little pokey at the moment. After it appears, hit "Upload," "Browse," "Upload", then "Send to editor," make sure width is no more than 500 (you can eliminate the height measurement, it will automatically adjust to be in proportion). Voila!

This is my woozle from a halcyon afternoon at the Bark Park. She is a red-tri Aussie Shepherd, now 2.5 years old. It's really warm here, so it was a delightful time to play!

At the moment, she's watching the World Series, rooting for the Cubbies. They are ahead at the moment.

Thank you for the help! Hallooo...

I rescued an Australian Shepard/Border Collie mix who was the sweetest dog in the pound but after I got her home, hoo boy. She tore up the backyard and my house and I couldn't keep her attention long enough for training and discipline.
I'd take her for long walks where she could run off leash and other places, so it wasn't that she was bored, just had too much energy.
I had a friend with a cattle ranch and took her there and watched her work with the other dogs and finally decided that she would be happier there doing what she was born to do. That's the only dog I gave away, but I think it was the right decision for her.
Here are my too rugrats

Fits, eh?

Ruby has a lot of energy, but she has grown-up a lot in the past 6-10 months. She has basic training, but she still requires some supervision when she's not in her crate, especially with 2 cats who were there before Ruby was adopted.

When she is off leash at the park and can get into some figure 8 runs, her speed and agility are quite amazing. She does like to "herd" other dogs at the park.

I'd like to find someone who allows dogs to spend some time at their farm as I'm curious as to whether she would really try to herd the animals or shy away.

Those animals are adorable.

Ginger is also called "Get offa me!" and "Get off the computer!" She likes to look over my shoulder while I work, which is fine until she decides to step heavily just so - it's like the Vulcan neck pinch!

Abbynow, AbbyimeanitAbbyoncemoreanditistheleash
DammitAbbynow. As she is getting old she is getting more stubborn and going where ever she wants.

Charlie gets upset when i have to raise my voice to keep calling Abby so she stays close to me, but she has a few names too.
OMG my god you stink. (Gets a bath)
No, you didn't roll in something again (another bath)
Are you kidding me (another bath)
Charlie don't you roll in that again!
Many dogs do this but beagles are famous for rolling in the stinkiest stuff they can find so that they mask their scent.
I finally got smart and take shampoo with me on our walks and then she gets a bath from the sprinklers at the cemetery.

I hope you find the time to look at the other links on that site. The photos are incredible

pond scum because she goes in the pond everyday and it has scum. She prefers it that way and expects applause every time she sticks her head under water. Used to breathe in water but learned not to ... Her greatest accomplishment.

leash. We have an open area where a lot of people let their dawgs run, but mine never comes back, so now we go for a run down the sidewalk. I have no choice but to get in better shape!

fell into the cracks, born in 1960 and his last book published in 1958. Then by the time they were republished in 1980, of course I too old for children's books.

I would love to get my hands on them! I will check the library next time I go. They sound fantastic. Aminals, humor, what's not to love?

Thank you, LL!

even Rudyard Kipling’s Just-So Stories — ended up giving me very high expectations for how talking animals ought to be portrayed.

Maybe that’s why I ended up absolutely refusing to watch any Hanna-Barbera series (Huckleberry Hound etc.) and even despising the Kellogg’s company for foisting both its teeth-rotting sugar products and Hanna-Barbera’s crappy animation on us kids.

Aptly, Asperger originally called it “Little Professor” syndrome . . . at any rate looking back I can see that, very early on, I was already “Little Miss Chomsky,” asking, hey, what is this? Some kind of conspiracy to dumb us kids down with bad nutrition for both our bodies and our minds?

cartoons! And loved Captain Crunch with Crunchberries! Maybe there was a little fruit juice in those "berries" that kept my brain from rotting? Or maybe the parents pulled us away from the TV after an hour or two even though they appreciated the benefits to them of passive entertainment.

I was an early avid reader. I may have just jumped from Dr. Seuss to Nancy Drew to Isaac Asimov without a lot of children's books in between, even though animal stories definitely held their charms. I remember wanting to be a grown up by the time I was about 5!

Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies whether pre- or post-WW2, Koko the Clown and other animation from the silent era, Rocky and his Friends, Matty’s Funnies (featuring Beany and Cecil), Crusader Rabbit, . . . I was willing to watch some cheapo animation, if the writing was creative enough.

All in low-resolution, terrestrial, analog black and white — not like these kids today, coddled young whippersnappers with their color and high-definition and iPhones and iPads ::mutter:: ::grumble::

but also Hanna-Barbera. Woody Woodpecker always disturbed me for some reason, the distortion of the characters made me slightly ill. My Dad loved Road Runner, I never thought it was that funny, I felt sorry for the Coyote. But I loved Underdog.

I felt sorry for the Coyote

I loved our family cat, so I also felt sorry for the cats in cartoons, who were always being typecast as the villain.

Artistically, the consensus would seem to be that Woody Woodpecker has not stood the test of time as well as the other examples of the cartoon craft I listed.

Not when I was little. Knowing my lovely pooties, it just struck me as something untrue and absurd.

Of course once I was older and realized there were actually insane people in the world who didn't like because they didn't understand cats, I realized what propaganda that had been and didn't like the cartoons any more.
