Pet Pictures Part II

A couple of weeks ago I asked you to send me pet pictures.

You sent in pet pictures.

A lot of pet pictures. An astonishing amount of pet pictures. Pet picture after pet picture after pet picture.

So this week I’m going to try something different.

This week I’m asking you to send me money.

Heh. Just kidding. Those days are over.

Unless of course you really want to send me money. In which case I wouldn’t refuse it. Who would? You’d have to be a mental case to refuse free money.

So, as I was saying, you sent in a LOT of pet pictures. Every time I walked past the computer it was another pet picture. I figured I’d get maybe 30 or 40 pet pictures.  I got hundreds of pet pictures.

So, I’ve taken the majority of them and split them into two posts. The first one ran last week, and right now I have the remainder of them.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ M O N E Y $$$$$$$$$ M O N E Y $$$$$$$$$$$$ C A S H O L A $$$$$$$$$$$

Did you notice my subliminal message? No? That’s the idea.


And as an added bonus, if you notice the girl/woman/lady/person holding her 25 pound cat Pee Wee (she’s just to the left above the dog with the birthday hat on), she included a video with her picture submission. It’s of her and her previously feral cat Pee Wee.

Please enjoy …


Thanks for your unexpected response to this post. I wasn’t able to thank everyone by email, so to all of you who didn’t get a personal thanks from me … thank you.

Now go open a can of food or dump some kibble and wait for them to come running.

Have a good weekend!



  1. I’m so glad you’ve come to your senses. Even better, you featured my cats picture on Facebook. Well done!

  2. Laura says:

    You did a great job choosing! So much fun.

  3. Amanda says:

    All so cute!!! my fav this round has got to be the upside down bulldog licking his nose!!! Too cute!

  4. I love it! Especially the showdown between the cat and the squirrel!

  5. Cheryl says:

    It’s 4:38 in the morning. I am headed off to the hospital to have heart valve surgery this morning and thought I’d check my emails before I went. Opened up your blog post and truly LOLd with these pet pictures–it TRULY started my day out with laughter. Thank you!

    • Shirley says:

      Cheryl, wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery from your surgery today, to be followed by a long life full of laughter. I love your positive attitude. Please let us know how you’re doing.

    • Gayla T says:

      You will have been done with surgery and probably up teaching some great skill you have to the nurses by now. At any rate I’m saying a few words in your behalf to my Friend in high places that you have a full and speedy recovery. I read on an old post that the fans who post here are the smartest and funniest on the entire internet which I believe. Saying that, we can’t lose a one of us or we would have to be all sad and grumpy. You are an important part of this whole crazy group and we care about you. God bless!

    Awwww…how stinkin cute are all of those pics AND the video! šŸ™‚ I busted a gut at the picture of the cat with the satellite dish collar on it’s neck. Talk about a picture being worth a thousand words! šŸ™‚ and the dog with the yarn everywhere – I had a cat that did that to me once, PITA!!! Thanks for posting all these, some are so just darn funny and cute!

    • That angry cat happens to be mine, lol. He’s the greatest cat in the world until the “collar of shame” goes on (for reasons you DO NOT want me to elaborate on,lol) and then he turns into a demon. A demon that looks like he would take pleasure in torturing you to death. But I promise when he is healthy, he is the cat that converts anti-cat people into cat lovers.

  7. Beckie says:

    the dog in the birthday hat has that *are you SERIOUS???* look on his face that they all seem to get when they are wearing human stuff lol

    the Siamese in the snow is a stunner =)

  8. Susan says:

    Loved the pictures of the pets; great way to start the morning! Sure are a lot of people, though, who don’t neuter, according to all of those Playdog poses!
    Whoever has the yellow poodle on the stairs, I saw the picture and thought it was my dog. They could be identical twins. Only mine would have managed to have a pillow on the stairs.

  9. Moe says:

    Loved the video of the kitty catching. I’m impressed with anyone who can teach a cat to do anything.. lol I’ve been after my girls to teach their kittens how to use the toilet.. I even sent them instructions. Nothing worse than going to the washroom and stepping on bits and bits of cat litter.. ugh. That’s why I love dogs :o)

    “A couple of weeks ago I asked you to send me pet pictures.

    You sent in pet pictures.

    A lot of pet pictures. An astonishing amount of pet pictures. Pet picture after pet picture after pet picture.

    So this week Iā€™m going to try something different.

    This week Iā€™m asking you to send me money.”

    ROFLMAO! Bwahaahahahahha, coffee coming out of my nose!

    I am not worthy! You are now my idol! Hahahahahahahahahaha!

  11. paula says:

    I don’t have my beloved dog anymore, she’s gone to join the big pet heaven in the sky; but these pet post pictures made me smile and really made my morning. They are all so heartwarming. Each pet has his/her own personality which you have all managed to capture. Thank you so much for sharing!

  12. ev says:

    To Cheryl–Good luck to you and a speedy recovery. What fun pics to start the day, huh? Thanks Karen, for yet another wonderful post.

  13. Leslie says:

    I love the upside down bulldog!

  14. Sherri says:

    Great contest idea…pick some of these photos and ask your readers to send in captions. Not that this is a new idea. You’ve done it before and it was FUN! Not that your blog isn’t normally FUN, because it is. But now I’m talking pee your pants because you’re snort laughing FUN. Not that I don’t normally pee my pants when I read your blog, because It’s FUN (reading your blog is fun…not peeing my pants, damn you and your FUN blog!). Just saying.

  15. Pee Wee you are one awesome cat. Karen, you’re not so bad yourself. šŸ™‚

  16. Jan says:

    Last week, our son unknowingly drove around with a tiny feral kitten behind the grille of his car! This was during a great wave. After he returned from work, he noticed a man peering into the grille, leaning, screwdriver un his hand.. So naturally a conversation ensued.

    I won’t describe how difficult it was to reach the kitten. Happily, my son and his wife adopted it. Named Suki or some name that means “bravery.” Very affectionate and – true to nature- inquisitive, spunky, and adventurous.

  17. Jan says:

    Make that a great “heat wave”. Ooops.

  18. Cheryl in Wisconsin says:

    This is a great testament of the goodwill, compassion and all around fun-ness of the type of people you attract to this blog.

  19. Mary Werner says:

    Love the dog on the stairs!!!!!!! LOL

  20. ruth says:

    just awesome. loved and lol-ed!

  21. Patricia says:

    When I first saw the picture of PeeWee and owner, I thought it was supposed to be a spoof of your fish picture, lol.
    Great start to my day, thanks!

  22. FlagirlinTN says:

    Thanks Karen for including my Snow-Cat Raja.
    Mei Lei will be jealous she didn’t make it in.

    To the owner of the upside-down bulldog….I think he wants to live with me šŸ™‚
    So cute!!!!!

  23. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    These are awesome..I don’t know how some people live without the fun of having pets!!!

  24. Carole McGinnis says:

    Every picture brought a smile to my face. What a great way to start Friday off I love Pee Wee – an adorable video.

  25. AmieM says:

    I love the one with the dog photo bombing the kittens in the basket. He wants to make sure he gets attention too!

  26. Laura Bee says:

    Funny, sweet, beautiful, irritating. I love ’em.

    Now, I mean this in the nicest way possible – the poodle on the stairs reminds me of a picture I’ve seen of a blonde at the bottom of the stairs.

  27. Aly says:

    What a fun post! Great to see so many animal lovers reading your blog. I have a bulldog so my favorites have to be the upside-down bullie and the one with the yoga ball – too cute!

    The lady in the video with the cat must have the patience of a saint to teach him those tricks. Pretty impressive.

  28. jojo says:

    The picture of the poodle on the stairs…. reminded me of the picture of you at the bottom of the stairs. Sorry! That’s just the way my twisted mind works. One day, can we hope for the “true story” behind the picture?

    • Karen says:

      jojo – Yes. Ahem. That’s been mentioned. Frankly I don’t see the resemblance. I mean that dog isn’t even wearing pjamas. ~ karen

  29. Cassie says:

    Not that you need more praise – buy hey.. maybe you do.. we all love it. When I read to my hubby from your blog, I always say “the funny blog lady” or something like that. It doesn’t do you justice, but your readers are a hoot as well (myself included of course).

    Loved the pics! What is with owners fascination with dog balls? seriously. ew.
    Thanks for including the very boring picture of my pet šŸ™‚

  30. Dana says:

    omg look how easily that guy made it for some princess to come and bandage his finger while he sleeps!

  31. Brenda says:

    Wonderful once again, beauties..Those Bengal[??] cats are stunning. One question tho..who is the owner of the Pet Squirrel who can open doors????

  32. Gayla T says:

    I’m hiding while I read this so my crew don’t know they had a photo op and I didn’t tell them. Being big hams they would be seriously offended and when you live with this many you do not want them all mad at the same time. I have four Maltese but if you have seen one you have seen them all. It’s just the personalities that are so different. The only boy who lives in the kitchen is the one who would look different but the handicapped do not like to be looked at. He is a rescue, as are all my critters, but he came from a Missouri puppy mill and has no jaw bone in the front top and bottom. They let his teeth rot out and it was so bad the jaw bone went too. He is very careful though not to let his tongue loll out but keeps it tucked in except for the tiny pink tip. I also have his wife who has emotional issues but they love one another and are happy at my house. That’s Scampy and FiFi. Jazzy has decided that no matter what they did to him in the puppy mill, I am a friend and he will trust me. He’s been here four years so it’s time he made that decision and for the last month sneaks into my bed in the night and cuddles until I wake up and he is off the bed like a shot. He’s getting better though. Miss Lily is a flower child and loves everyone and everyone loves her. She was not abused but her owner was going to Iraq from Fort Riley Army Post near me here in KS. His wife decided to fly home to her family at the last minute and I rehomed her when she was 8 months old since she was not going to be welcome in Tennessee. That’s the dogs and the cats are another entire story with the big Maine Coon being the star. We’ll save them for another time. I have all these rescues who I’m blessed to share my life with and then on weekends I get to meet other sweet dogs who just need a ride. They are being transported cross country usually from kill shelters to forever homes were they will be safe. We do have the occasional cat going too and that’s how my black persian came to me. She got too sick to go on so she dropped out here and is still at my house nearly a year later. She has some kind of auto-immune disease that causes her skin problems and she is very ill when she is flaring. Since I have the same kind of issues we understand one another and get along well although her medical bills are much higher than mine. I can’t imagine anyone else wanting her so she will be here forever. I usually meet a transporter here in Topeka and drive the load on to Kansas City where they meet the next leg of their journey to where ever they will be safe. I’ve taken everything from chihuahuas to four full grown Irish Wolf Hounds in my Toyota Camry. That was a car load and the most fun trip ever. One of them road with his head over my left shoulder so that cars passing me on the left couldn’t see me but only a huge dog head. When they got far enough around me that I could see them they were all laughing and pointing. With all these animals and my grand girls with me there is never a dull moment at my house. When the girls are picked up every evening the entire group crashes including me as we are right now. Sorry I didn’t send pictures but with 4 dogs 3 cats and 2 birds I’d be a post all on my own and I’ve been flaring for about 3 weeks now. It’s all I can do to keep it all going. Life is so quiet now that I retired.

      Gayla T – Just letting you know the most recent commenter has deemed you a saint. I must say I agree. ~ karen!

  33. Pat says:

    The Siamese in the snow; that’s blow it up, hang on the wall worthy. Love it! And the curly brown dog with the birthday hat? I just want to hug him! Love them all! And whose guilty looking Basset Hound is that? Didn’t have time to hide the evidence; very funny! Thanks everyone. Must go, cats are demanding to be fed …

    And Gayla is a saint! Rescuer of those who cannot rescue themselves.

  34. Kristin says:

    I SOOOOO want to make some slightly-off-color comment about the “Men of the House” photo, perhaps something that includes the word “disappointing,” but alas, I got nuthin’. Any ideas, Karen?

  35. kelliblue says:

    these may be even better than Round 1! šŸ™‚ So much adorableness…and Pee Wee is a champ! However I saw a few “dog balls” in there…come on people, gotta get those kids fixed! Thanks for the giggles Karen! (again)

  36. Shannon says:

    Yay, my couch-surfing pup made it in! Such great pics, I love the bulldog with the exercise ball and the upside down bulldog. What is it about bullies? šŸ™‚ Also love the Viszla in the man’s lap, demonstrating the Hungarian saying “to own a Viszla is to live with a dog on your head.” Or lap. So cute!
