TechRepublic's camera phone challenge: Pets

Odie

A couple of weeks ago, we encouraged the TechRepublic community to submit pet photos that they had taken with a camera phone. Bonus points were given for photos of pets with technology, which means that ALL of the folks who sent in a "pet tech pic" will receive a little somethin-somethin of the swag variety!

The first-place photo (the one the TechRepublic editorial staff liked the very best) was taken by TR member JohnMcGrew with a Treo 755p.

"This is Odie the Pomeranian. He frequently makes himself at home on my desk and critiques my work. He is 4, and is also a registered therapy dog that makes regular visits to senior centers and the Children's Hospital.

"If you want to see him with his 'A' face, check him out at OdiethePom.com."

Hear, hear. I had a gray (an anomaly) shorthair calico. "Eclipse" knew my voice and would follow me anywhere, she knew when to go and when to stay. She was nearly 18 when she passed..I miss her!

Is Fluffy-Borg. Resistance is Futile. He adores Everyone. He will love you, follow you, sit by you, talk to you and stare unblinking at you, until you've been assimilated into his fan club. However long it takes.

It was delightful to come home and find the TechRepublic pet parade. They are also so adorable -- just so different and yet so much the same. Thanks for all the contributors for brightening my day. Aloha from Hawai'i Evan

I am a big fan of TechRepublic and I am so glad that all your technies have compassion for four legged animals.

I like birds, have rescued some. I even have "standby" small cage at work. It is handy when the company Clinic nurse calls me to help with injured or somehow lost (in fact "found") bird. I had few Sunbirds in the office over the years. At least one has been in TechRepublic gallery in the past. At home I have African Grey parrot. His latest favourite attraction is the keyboard, more specifically "right-arrow", "ALT" and "Ctrl" keys. After changing few keyboards I leave "dummy" keyboard (already "investigated" by him) on the table, when working keyboard is standing vertically behind the monitor when I am not in the room. Cats are "technologically cheaper"...
