The OdorXit Pets among other things

The Third OdorXit Dog

This is Hooch

born January 2007 (adopted June 2008) -
Hooch is a rescue Puggle that was destined for our home when he was about 18 months old. For some still unknown reason he was not adopted for nearly 2 months from a very nice private rescue in Trenton Ohio. They brought Hooch to a dog expo at the VOA park where there were vendors and booths selling all sorts of dog related stuff and probably 200 to 300 dogs wandering around with their owners. We walked Hooch all around the park and he was perfect with the people and the other dogs so...he was a goner. We took him home.

Here's Hooch the first week we had him at home.

Hooch about 1 month later with his special WalMart No Pull walking collar

At 6 months with us (about 2 years old) and 25 pounds he is a full blown member of the OdorXit Family. He is small enough and well behaved enough to take him almost anywhere. He loves riding in the car and even likes to steer sometimes.

About July 08 our neighbors bought a male puggle puppy and named it Max. They have a very large fenced yard where Hooch and Max can run at full speed to their hearts content. Now (Dec 08) Max is 20 pounds and as fast as Hooch. You should see them run!.

This is Zorro

Born about May 2009 -

This is our second black and white cat. The people down the street were giving him away and he was the last cat in the litter! Just what I was looking for. He is a really good guy and is just independent enough to stand up to Hooch even as a kitten. Now he is 15 pounds and can still out run the dog easily except on the tile.

Zorro's first day with us
Zorro, like his predecessor PB, likes paper bags.

Zorro and Hooch
Even on his first night, he kept Hooch at bay

Now there pretty much buddies
But they soon became pretty good friends even though this is posed

Hangin out with Mart
And here is Zorro hanging out with Mart at the Mart's work station.

This is Clay

Born about June 2010 -

This is our third black and white cat. Again, the people down the street were giving him away but this time Clay was the first out of the litter and again, just what I was looking for. He and Zorro are really buddies and I think that are at least half brothers and possibably full brother. They play and wrestle and sleep together much of the time.

This is Clay at about 6 months old. He was just awakened from a nap on my desk.

This is a copy(er) cat for sure.

The Rainbow Bridge

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill;
Is a lush green meadow where time stands still,
Where friends of man and woman do run,
When their times on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play.
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness.
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without ever a care,
Until one day they start and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side they crossover....together.

This is PB
August, 1986 - March 10, 2007 12:01am

He is now waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for his life long companion; Marty

PB is an acronym for any number of things including Peanut Butter, Paper Bag, Pretty Boy and Pretty Bad.
At 15 years he was no longer considered to be Top Cat, but he doesn't know it yet.
At 20 years 7 months, my long time friend and constant companion quietly died in my arms.
I am eternally grateful that God let me have him for so long. I miss him a lot.


The First OdorXit Dog
This is Kuma
January, 1989 - June 2003
He is now waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for his life long companion; Deb.
Kuma at 12 years old and 92 pounds in the picture. He was the Top Dog as well as being the only dog in our family during his tenure. He maintained an uneasy truce with the cats while performing all the duties of a guard dog. You just couldn't say "Walk" around him.

The Second OdorXit Dog
This is Samurai

January 10, 2006 - November 15, 2007
Sami is 7 weeks old and 11 pounds in this picture. He is not yet completely house broken but he has an unmistakable pattern. When he goes to the door, he needs to go out the door. Immediately after eating, he needs to go out to relieve himself. He plays hard and sleeps a lot. But even at 7 weeks, make no mistake, this Akita's guard dog wiring is active. The best estimates are that Sami will have a top adult weight of 100 to 120 pounds. We are hoping for the lower number.

v Sami at 10 weeks v

v Sami at 8 Months v

The cats (PB in this case at 20 years) are tolerating him very will considering that he really likes cat food, but we and the cats don't let eat the cat's food.

This is Tiger

April, 1996 - July 2009

You wouldn't know he was a tiger but at 5 years and 14 pounds, he pretty much can be anything he wants to be. He recently assumed Top Cat status but is not entirely sure what that really means. He is, however, learning .

At 13 years Tiger started to succumbed to is dislike of drinking water. Even hydrating him every day with 50 ml of Ringers was not enough to bring him back to normality and he passed on the the Rainbow Bridge without fan fair or pain. We miss him a lot.

......AND BEYOND! (The Rainbow Bridge)

A man and his skunk were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying and that the skunk had been dead for years.

He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by an arch that glowed in the sunlight. 

When he was standing before it, he saw a magnificent gate at the arch that looked like Mother of Pearl and the street that led toward the gate looked like pure gold. 

He and the skunk walked toward the gate and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?" 

"This is Heaven, sir", the man answered. "Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man asked. "Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up". The man gestured and the gate began to open. 

"May my friend," gesturing toward his skunk, "come in too?" the traveler asked. "I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued on the way he had been going. After another long walk and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road which led through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.

As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree, and reading a book. "Excuse me!" he called to the reader. "Do you have any water?"
"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there." The man pointed to a place that couldn't be seen from outside the gate. "Come on in."

"How about my friend, here?" The traveler gestured to the skunk. "There should be a bowl by the pump." They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the bowl, took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the skunk. 

When they were full he and the skunk walked back toward the man, who was standing by a tree waiting for them.

"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked. "This is Heaven", was the answer.

"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.

"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope... That's Hell."

"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?" 

"No, I can see how you might think so, but we're just happy that they screen out the folks who'll leave their best friends behind."

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone - 
wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed 
at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. 

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, 
without a ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.

What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind 
because I'm out of sight?

I am but waiting for you, 
for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just round the corner.

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Canon Henry Scott-Holland, 1847-1918, Canon of St Paul's Cathedral

'The King of Terrors', a sermon on death delivered in St Paul's Cathedral
on Whitsunday 1910, while the body of King Edward VII was lying in state at Westminster:

published in Facts of the Faith, 1919

Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
All of the above quotes are the thoughts of:
Gautama Buddha born Lumbini, Nepal 563 BC died ~ 483 BC

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.
Hypocrisy can afford to be magnificent in its promises; for never intending to go beyond promises; it costs nothing.
No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.

All of the above quotes are the thought of:
Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797) Irish orator, philosopher, & politician
How little things have change.
