HA. German cat's and dog's......... Not that much difference. Your dog looks like he is on high alert with the cat. My dog is on high alert when my mom's (20lb) cat rubs on him like that, his eyes also look like your dogs eyes ( it's fear in my dog's eyes)

Right. Here, they had just gotten to know each other, and we were nervous how it would work out. The cat, Mrs. Line Seidenpelz is very relaxed around the dog, Trude. But Trude does actually lick her face when they meet.

We are down to only pets of the piscean persuasion, which is a good thing with our house up for sale.

First is Splash. Craziest fish I've ever had. Must be hand fed and will actually allow you to pet it.

Then out to the back yard koi pond where Ilithyia is coming up for a bit of dinner. Not pictured, her swim partner, Oenomaus, who is all black, therefore doesn't photograph well.

Still grieving the loss of my black german shepherd last year, my neighbor knocked at my door asking if we wanted a dog , they were moving to an apartment that allows small pets only... he was dehydrated, his rib cage clearly visible, no shots , have never seeing a vet and later we found, with the early stages of heart worms , his eyes so sad looking, we had to take it in.
A couple thousand dollars and lots of love later, my German shepherd mix Neo, owns our hearts ( and the house ;) )

Lost my Boxer, Mandy (on the right), to a stroke at age ten years in 2/2013. I miss her so much!

Put a deposit down on a Boxer puppy last week and waiting for a female reverse brindle with flashing to be born, hopefully this fall.

Love seeing and hearing about pets. They are such special friends!

It was December 2015 when I lost our 15-year-old shep/chow mix, Belle.

This is gonna sound bad, but I'm never gonna get over it - and I don't even want to. Best friend I ever had, by miles.

The only thing I hated about leaving our first home was the plot of ground where all our pets were laid to rest.

My wife insisted to dig out the remains of our two dogs. We did then have them cremated and put them to rest once more at our new home.
