My daughter has a (white) boxer......and Cruiser can make his little stump move a mile a minute! So.....even little stubbies/stumps/nubs should count.

I'll have to soak their little tails so you can actually see them with out all that puffy fur hiding them. :laughing:
Some kees have very tightly curled tails, Baxters is curled but not super tight, Bentley on the other hand has a really tight curl to his. Getting pics should will be fun. It's a good challenge.

Hazel :lightbulb: w/all those tails you'll have to try to get them sitting in a circle facing out w/all tails pointing inside the circle

Oh, ya, growler...like I'm gonna get them to sit quietly in a circle facing any way! :laughing: You have overestimated the amount of training they have by about 6 dogs in a circle (I think I can manage one dog sitting with his or her tail pointing...uh...to the center point of an imagined circle of setters :laughing:)

does that make sense to anyone...even to hazel???? :crazy:

You want to know what's strange about that picture? The horizon is actually straight.

A combination of various slopes angling in different directions and the fact the mountains are further away on the right than they are on the left PLUS the curve of the earth given the distances involved . . . . leaves a different impression on the eye.

And then there's the tail . . .

Beautiful tail! The angle of the shot really shows it off with the gold & white separation of color. Glad you didn't shoot it from the rear! All we would see would be the cascade.

It doesn't seem to hurt Indie too much! She loves playing with him - they're visiting again now and even with Romeo being so much bigger she still seems fine with it! Although now they're chasing each other around the living room so hopefully no damage will ensue that way :rolleyes: Barkley's just sitting in his chair looking at them like they're nuts :laughing:

Ahhh Cool...That's what I'm talkin' bout.

Frenchy - Nice shots and great shots of Sam's & Merlin's furry tails.

Wdawson - Nice tail shots as well. I especially love the 3rd shot in post 34 of the crossing of the tails....and sweet cat tails as well.

Byrd - Nice nub. LOL. Actually it looks like a taily nub as opposed to nubby nub or stubby nub. :laughing:

Jessi76 - What a nice serene shot! Good job.

meg4050 - LOVE the kitty tail play. Shot #3 is oozing sweet cuteness :highfive:

TeriM - Nice snow shot and love the tail cross in the last shot and in the Tofino shot. BTW - LOVE Tofino.

Nice shots everyone...love to see some more....!

So more tail pics

Pic 1 Mischief
Pic 2 Cally - I can't believe I never took a close up pic of his tail, here you can kinda see it's crooked
Pic 3 Cally - better look @ the crooked tail, he had several vertebrae in his tail fused together, I don't know if this was from birth or something happened before his mom & his whole litter were dumped @ shelter

These are my boyfriend's cats..but I spoil them just as much as my own! I love Aly's raccoon tail so I had to post it! The little one is Dexter, we rescued him from a halfway house in Toronto - the guy was giving them 'fresh air' letting them run around on the front steps, told us we could have one for free b/c the mother died and he didn't want to care for them. They looked like hell so we took Dexter and his two sisters, got them to a vet and found homes for the two girls! These were taken over a year ago...he's HUGE now!

So Aztec had a dental last Friday and one of his upper canines was removed. Not an easy process, apparently, and they had to do a fair bit of "digging" :eek: to get it out (the bone had grown into the tooth). So he came home with a fentanyl pain patch on. It's attached to the underside of his tail and wrapped in gauze, which you can see in these pics. What really surprised me is that he hasn't tried to take it off yet. Must be really good drugs! :D
