ALL PETS BIG AND SMALL is a forum for people who love animals and always want to have pets. Some people only like dogs. Some people only like cats. Other people like a variety of pets. In different circumstances we may have different pets. Let's talk about all pets in all places.
Take a moment and tell us about yourself and your pets in INTRODUCTION.

Breeds of the Week
Would you like your dog or cat to be a Favorite Forum Pet whose picture is shown in the Welcome Page?
Just tell us a little about your dog and post a picture in See My Dog. Or tell us a little about your cat and post a picture in See My Cat. Or if you have another type of pet, post pictures of your pet in See My Critter. Then your dog or cat will be featured in our Welcome Page for a week or more.
This is Francis, a Boston Terrier, and Noelle, a moyen Poodle, who belong to ClickNTreat. Noelle is being trained as a Diabetes Alert Dog. Both are 18 months old and are keeping ClickNTreat quite busy.
This is Makenna, who belongs to Krathyn, who often calls him a "Mini Coon" because he looks like a smaller version of a Maine Coon. He is seven now and was adopted two years ago. Makenna is friendly and sweet and lets them know when someone is at the door.
This is Andie, who is approximately 3-4 years old and belongs to Gaelspirit. Andie was dumped at a local no-kill shelter with kittens, and all the kittens were adopted, but she was sitting there for over 2 years. Andie was extremely shy and skittish when Gael first brought her home, but now she's comfortable after 3 months and has become really affectionate.
These 3 hermit crabs belong to PennyCC. They are a different sort of pet but are fun to watch and take care of, especially when they change their appearance by molting and picking a different shell to carry around. Their names are (left to right) Shelly, Corrie, and Hermie. To read more about her crabs, see Well, I Got Me 3 Hermit Crabs.
In Memory of Pets
This is Shiva Diva, who belonged to Michele. She crossed to Rainbow Bridge in May 2017 and is sorely missed by all who knew her.
This is Phoenix, a Portuguese Water Dog who belonged to PennyCC. She passed over in February 2017 and was one of the sweetest dogs ever.
