Seem to have many members who have been adopted by "pets", of which I am one. So a new topic category to chat about same. This is Myf. Who has totally disrupted my previously well organised life. Yet to decide whether for the better or not.

Alison, my uncle who lived in Ferney Grove outside Brisbane (well it used to be outside) always attracted strays. When he died his sister imported his last dog to UK. It was a gorgeous Red Setter, strength and size of a small pony. It stood a good 9 inches taller than English ones. How she controlled him I don't know. Probably never walked him.

We yoked him with two Scotties, 40lbs, poor things he just dragged them.

Red Setters - absolutely bonkers dogs! Here's mine from about 1979. She was the most scatterbrained dog I've ever had.

On the other hand this full size Rough Collie was a gorgeous and intelligent dog. Taken in 1970, a couple of years later at the age of 5 she jumped up at me to play and collapsed and died at my feet - the Vet thought it was a heart attack.

We had a dog for about nine months once. His person had died, person's son wasn't in a position to properly care for the dog (spent his time couch surfing with friends due to lack of place to live) so we acquired a 16 yr old dog.

We also acquired an extra cat. We already had three, another one was not part of the plans, but the dogs insisted we adopt this tiny kitten. I think he's more their pet (or overlord) than ours.
