    I've noticed a lot of people on here love their pets. My dog is often my constant companion while enjoying a great beer. Johnny "Cash" has been with us longer than our kids - almost 12 years. Unfortunately, he has an enlarged heart, so I'm not sure how long he'll be with us. Here's a couple pics.

    Tell us about your pets and share a pic or two.

    That's a good looking dog, I hope you have time for plenty more beers and memories with him. I have a cat... who tolerates my existence and is always trying to lick the rim of my glass. She too is old, almost 16, and I'll miss those gross little licks when she's gone. I'd share a pic, but she just looks like any standard cat. Cheers to our four legged friends

    I do 99% of my drinking while sitting in my recliner. Often, our Bengal XL cat Mia assists. She is 1/8 wildcat, is 50% larger than a normal house-cat, is poly-dactyl (extra toes), has very distinctive striping, and loves to play or lay in water, unlike most cats. In the shot below, note that the recliner is a "big-man's" oversized one and when she stretches out can cover the whole top.

    Actually the issue is that they don't realize we're NOT cats.

    One of the residents of the group home where I work made this scratch board portrait from the above photo. That's his name in Kanji, at least according to what I was able to find on the web. If this is wrong, don't tell me.

    Teddy is my avatar. Believe me, he's wanted to kiss the hops since day 1 but I've kept him stone cold sober. Through him I've met some awesome fellow sots including the person who took that picture.

    My first Airedale, Trane, was 12 when he just completely became lethargic. Enlarged heart the size of a basketball. We put him down the next day. He just gave a big sigh like he was going to sleep. We cried but it was extremely humane.

    Best wishes for Johnny Cash.

    That's a beautiful dog (tag aside) and an awesome portrait.

    Thank you. He's still running for his food and plays with me, but he can't bark and howl like he used to and he coughs loud, hacking coughs. About a year ago the vet gave him 1-3 years. He's still loving life so far.

    Macy is the yellow lab. About 14 years old. Cash is Australian Cattle Dog.
    You’ll notice Cash is a little blurry. He never stops moving

    Circa 1985 - Me, Jessie [RIP] and Bob.

    When my other buddy who took this photo sent it to me about 10 years ago or more, I thought:
    "What? Sterling Beer? I've had Sterling Beer? We could buy Heileman's Sterling in the Southern Tier of NY in the mid-80s?"
    And then I noticed Bob's beer, blue and orange label on a stubby. Never have been able to figure that one out. And I was the beer-buyer up there...

    Me & Jessie, again - Mud season. (But where's my beer!)

    Adopted this little girl from a shelter two years ago this month. Drastic difference for when we first saw her to now. Confidence and happiness is a wonderful thing to see grow in your pets.

    She’s a great drinking companion. Won’t hesitate to try and steal a lick of beer if I’m not looking.
    Plus she’s a Viking fan (by force) too so that helps.

    Beautiful cat.

    And a love the caption! So what do I believe he is judging about me? It's really about how he/she is a mirror for my own beliefs. Well, I judge cats--including your cat, Sweetie, in this picture--are very Zen. So I guess he judges I am Zen as well? It also looks like Sweetie is doing that cat thing where they clench their paws when they are contented. Perhaps Sweetie judges I am contented as well? :stuck_out_tongue::sunglasses:

    That's also hilarious. The Zen warrior? She looks all calm, centered and focused--like a Jedi master--but she can really bring the pain to her enemies if she needs to?

    This is my buddy Kiwi, so named because his eyes are the color of kiwi fruit. He was originally my daughters cat but when she went off to college I basically inherited him. I never really cared for cats before, but I've become rather fond of him. He loves to box and play, even at 15 years old. He's more like a dog, follows me all around the house and never lets his presence be missed. He's a bruiser too, the vets had two red dots on his record to indicate that he was very difficult to deal with, but he's mellow with me. He's just a very cool cat!

    My buddy Chamberlain. When I retreat to me basement beer area for NBS every Sunday afternoon, my wife sends Chambo down to play with me. It's hard to write reviews with an 8 month old Boston Terrier jumping on you.

    This is Angus. He is half Rat Terrier and half Chiahuhua. As you’d expect, he is calm, great with children and loves to share his space.

    He’ll be 8 in June.

    He likes mild mannered beer. Pretty much only goes for American Adjunct Lager.

    He is almost always by my side when I’m posting what I’m drinking in late night WBAYDN.

    He is the man.

    Both pics are a bit older but they’re two of my favorites.





    Great thread!
