Right, it wasn't an easy choice but I gibe you two dogs.

The first is Maya, who was originally Anto's dog. When Anto left Dragonhold-Underhill in 2006, Maya stayed on as an appreciated member of Anne McCaffrey's menagerie. When my wife and I were staying at Dragonhold in August 2006 she just had pups.



The second dog is Gitta, another dog of a friend who, for once sat still long enough to make a photograph of her.

I posted a pet picture in the animal week, not realizing there'd be another chance to use it so soon. I of course have lots more pics of my cats to choose from which is what I've done. After realizing I could post pictures of other people's pets I almost went in that direction, having lovely pics of Pam's animals and my neighbor's dog among others. But in the end I found two more pics of Cedric I thought would be good to share.

We had to put him to sleep yesterday morning. He was 10 and should have had many years left

Kat, we had to take our dog to the vet as well, due to a blood vessel bursting and it needed draining so here's the result (in 2 weeks time, she has to go back to the vet to get the stitches out):



and here's Junior's yabby:

I think the ones I like best from this set are Pam's and Cheryl's second photographs. Pam's. Apart of both being great photographs, captured very well and technicaly good, they best convey the subject for me.

Anne Marie's picture is special in that it shows the relation between human and pet and I like it very much for the emotion it radiates. I still would love it if you deactivate that dating thing, Anne Marie, although it's too late for this pic

Jube, please tell me that animal in your second photograph isn't a real pet?

Kat, Tiberius looks enormously healthy and beautiful in yur picture. Sorry to hear he had to be put down.

We do have a pretty bunch of pets, don't we?

Pam's second is my favorite. Evie and Anya are just adorable together (though I wouldn't be shocked if Evie woke and decided to attack Anya nose...I know why her nickname is Evil!).

Kat, I'm so sorry you had to put Tiberius down. He's beautiful in your pic and reminds me of my parents' cat.

Evie is actually licking Anya's nose in that photo. The attacking came shortly after

I love the pictures of Cedric.

I really like P'ter's cat on the chair. There's something about him that's all "What are you looking at and why are you taking a picture?"

Hans, yes the yabby is a pet. Junior was given 2 yabbies as a birthday present 4 years ago. Unfortunately one passed away about 2 years ago. It's no different to having snakes or spiders as pets.

AnnMarie, the date is ALWAYS attached and need not spoil the pic. Just rght click on the name in Windows (chose properties and then the right tab) and you'll get a wealth of data, including the original date it was taken!

Sorry, but it's a pet peeve borb out of irritation of having to photoshop out the darned dates. I know, I don't have to do it with yours but still

As said, the date is in the so called EXIF data (and a LOT more than the date):

Example of data on a picture of mine (copied from Flickr as you can rad but not copy all data in Windows in one go):

What a wonderful set of cute pictures. Here is one of the pictures I scanned from my attic collection. Lanen's cat Rowan (sadly no longer with us), photographed in 1998 when she was still a kitten:


Wow, Hans your first picture is terrific. Perfect exposure, good focus, no distracting background, and no trace of red eye: it could have been taken by a professional.

Thank you, Steven.

And your picture is beautiful too, with the exact right depth of field, perfect. Rowan was a stunning colour.

Beautiful cat with an unusual eye color, and as Hans said the perfect depth of field.
