My friend & other animals
 
1 Attachment(s)
Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend.

I'm one of those guys who believe that they are the nicest people on earth. Meet Leo, who is my shadow, my bud, my private comedian, my soulmate. There is nothing he likes more than to lay his head inches from my 22'" Yamaha MCAN bass drum and snooze through my woodshedding.

I can honesty say that there are not many things or people that I love more than Leo.

I thought I 'd share him with you guys. There used to be a pets thread here which seems to have evaporated into thin air so here's a tribute to the guy who makes me a better drummer ( sorry for the stretch )

Please show us you mutts n pooches....and your cats & rats, and parrots, and lizards and snakes and all or any creatures that enhance your quality as a human being and therefore make you a better drummer.

Here's a couple of pic's of Yogi. He's a 4 year old Welsh Terrier. Both pictures taken about 2 years ago. One with my precious family, the other doing what terriers usually do.

I picked up this abandoned kitty last September, she was some three weeks old...

She's grown a bit since then, though I feel she'll always stay a small one.

She's a great spirit, but not a really good practice companion, since her usual reaction is "OMG! He's hitting something with his sticks! This must mean he wants me to lie there!" I don't really mind though.

Meet Klaus, my pedigree German cockroach. He's my constant companion, especially in the summer months when he's more active.

We often play hide and seek together.

Do I smell a degree of trickery here?

Thanks Abe, I can't believe that photo was 2 years ago. My daughter's only 13 in that shot and 6' tall! Yogi is a true terrier in every department. Way too much trouble & fun for most people. I was really cut up at the loss of our previous mixed terrier. "Scamp" was 21 years old when she died (yes, 21), and caught 2 rats on the morning of her departure. What a terrier! I'm such a sucker for all animals. I admit it, I'm a terrible softy.

I look at some old pictures and I can't believe she ever was that tiny, even though she still is pretty small.
It's a practice pad kit. For some reason she insists on lying on the "floor tom" pad even though the "snare" pad is bigger...

No Abe, Klaus has a normal diet - crumbs, dirt, dust, slewed off skin cells etc. I'm just very small ...

Klaus doesn't play djembe himself but I have certainly practised my slap on some some of his family members. He's had a bit of an attitude since I started doing that. Picky picky.

Andy, you obviously have a suspicious mind. Larry's observation struck me as fairly accurate, though.

As Polly has set the trend for "unlikely" pets, here's a few shots of my baby taken about 3 years ago. His name is Cedric. He's nearly 20ft high and weighs about 4.5 tonnes. The first picture is of his "birth", with his "father" Steve looking on. Born of an old oak tree, Cedric guards our house night & day. He feeds on lead guitarists & singers, never the sheep that surround him. He is very rock & roll though. He started off blonde, but now he's turned almost black (a bit like a reverse MJ).

Re: My friend & other animals
 
Cedric is disappointed with the lack of remarks on his good looks, & is threatening to expand his diet to drummers. As there's two of us in the household, that's an issue!

Pollyanna 05-18-2010 03:07 PM

Re: My friend & other animals
 
I answer not out of fear of Cedric but amazement. That's mind-blowing work. Hope the tree was already dead!

Not that I can talk given the way I mistreat Klaus's little friends ...

Here is our idiotic hound when he was just a pup. He likes to steal food, crap in the house and be a general nuisance. We like to beat him. By the way, I am never serious. I hope everybody has figured that out already ;-}

The tree was dead Pol. Some idiot took away the surface roots when clearing the site.

Might take a while with such a knife your mayorship. A chainsaw & angle grinder with abrasive disc modelled Cedric's charming features.

I think Cedric has taken the "heaviest thing on DW that's made of wood" title from DMC's ironwood kit!

Who cannot love a Bassett Hound no matter what they do? They are perfect to have around kids - despite their thieving and sneaky ways...................

In that case, a magnificent use of the tree! Quite brilliant.

As for the Doctor's pooch ... he's GORGEOUS!!

hollllllyy geez...... I think I about choked to death laughing.

Never under estimate Polly. hahahahaha

I have three dogs. No pictures, because do you know how hard it is to get three dogs to sit together, all at the same time? heh

And never underestimate Klaus - he and his mates are a force of nature!

The cat next door used to visit me regularly and would happily spend hours on my lap while I sat at the PC. Then this summer he had a bad case of fleas, some of whom happily joined Klaus and his mates in my flat's little ecosystem.

I was annoyed about it until Peter turned up, and he proved himself a talented bass guitarist. Here's a moody shot of him on my bed slapping out a few funky riffs. I ended up giving him a pet name ... Flea (not very imaginative, I know).

Well, at least you don't have any Great White Sharks for pets.

Yet.

True. I'm yet to dig out a picture of my pet Daddy Long Legs Spider, Papa Jo :)

I figure he helps keep the headcount of my other pets down a bit ...

I hate to continually beat on Australian stereotypes, but thank God it is a Daddy Long Legs and not the infamous POTTY SPIDER!

Potty spider? lol

Are you talking about the infamous redback on the toilet seat? Thankfully, never had to deal with that (touch wood).

The danger here in the wilds of Oz are toilet-based white pointer sharks. They sneak up through the pipes and suddenly leap out and take a chunk out of your bum while you're doing your business. That's why Ozzies have overtaken Americans as the most obese nation on earth - we're holding it all in to avoid the risk!





... and then it all comes out on web forums ;-)

I had a hamster when I was around 13-14, because my parents are allergic to dogs and cats. It died of stomach cancer after two years, because I fed him too much candy..

LOL nice connection, Doctor. Mud indeed!

You know, if I had actual pets rather than pests (the line at times pretty fine) I would be showing my sweet little puppies or pussy rather than all this silliness ...
