Do you not have a re-size option when you view your images on your pc? Scan your tool bar and drop downs.

Just make sure they are not more than 500 pixels wide and 350 high.

Foden; based in Sandbach, Cheshire. Also based in Sandbach is the truck company E.R.F. which was started after an argument between the two Foden brothers as to who could build the better truck. E.R.F being the initials of the other Foden brother.

Pets, a subject dear to my heart.

Did anyone see my post on the 900 Workshop about my Border Collie? When I first bought my SAAB home (three weeks ago)and left it in our back yard I awoke the next morning to find muddy footprints on the bonnet. She decided to exert her authority over Dad's new toy by doing a dance on the bonnet (scratching it in the process)! :o Friggin' dog! :-? She's lucky I love her - she might end up as seat covers otherwise. (just kidding)

As for pets, we currently have:
Border Collie, Liebling (Libby for short)
Border Collie cross Retreiver, Tobby. I've had Tobby since I was 12 years old (16 years ago!), no joke. He's a slow old thing now. He's great.
Saffron the Budgie. Named after Julia Sawahla's character in AbFab. 8)
Three clown loaches (tropical fish) called Merry, Pippin and Harry.

My brother-in-law has a Carpet Python called Sotek. He's cool.

Over the years we have had frogs and guinea pigs also!

Pets are great, what a top idea for a thread! I'll post some pictures later.

Cheers all,

Andrew.

The infamous Runaway Turtle, Levi. He ran away from home a few months ago. I had him for somewhere around 10 years. I sorta lost count. Found him in a pond when he was the size fo a quarter. When last spotted, he was a bit larger than a comptuer mouse.

I'd put a picture of my cat too, but he's a bad poser. I have more pet pictures on my website! :D I am petless now though, except for the kitty, which is well enough. :-?

funny story about the cat. when he was a kitten he'd get up on his back legs and attempt to beat the snot out of the dog. one day the dog swatted the cat away, and since tehn they've stayed away from each other.

so what the cat is really saying is, "you're lucky i'm on the other side of this glass..."

That's Mack, last Christmas. He got old and smelly right after, turns out he had some serious dental problems (and cancer). Vet took care of it, but he hasn't been the same since. He's still a sweetheart and an attention whore. We'll probably never have a dog again, cos we'll be disappointed when it's not as good as this guy.

I was reading an interesting article on the subject of pets being family members: http://www.turnto10.com/news/4430980/detail.html
Article states:
"
Fire Departments Get Oxygen Masks For Pets

Devices Given To Departments In 11 States

POSTED: 11:12 am EDT April 29, 2005 Associated Press

FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Man's best friend has a new friend in Fairfield, Conn. -- the fire department.
Firefighters have 15 new oxygen masks designed for dogs and cats. The Best Friends Pet Resort chain donated the masks.
The company has given about 450 sets of masks so far to fire departments in 11 states.
The masks come in three sizes -- one for cats, one for small dogs and one for big dogs.
Fire Chief Richard Felner said pets are part of families and the department's job is to take care of families."

Found it to be interesting.

Smudge is half Norwegian Forest Cat, (we don't know who the father was!). He's been my mate ever since the day he was born in my mum's house in 1994. I also had his brother, Dudley, until he escaped from a cattery in 1997, where they stayed for a couple of days while we moved house 200 miles or so. Mum's neighbours took on the twin sisters, Kitty and Katey. Dudley was never seen again, but since he was very feral in his character, unlike Smudge, it is believed that he became a farm cat - many were in the vicinity.
