    Pet Pictures

    Really?  More of you don't want to share you favorite jokes?  That's ok, @Fábio Emilio Costa gets yet another t-shirt then with the perfect "dad joke"!

    I'm hoping to get more of you to engage this week and everyone loves to brag about their pets.  So for this week show off your furry friend and let's see whose pet gets the most likes!

    The rules:
    1.  Every Thursday, I'll start a new discussion thread titled Weekly Challenge.

    2.  This week, reply to the thread with your pet pictures.  

    3.  Vote for your favorite entries by clicking the "Recommend" button next to your favorites.

    4.  The following Thursday, I'll announce the winner and start the next week's thread.

    5.  The person submitting the item with the most votes will receive one of these Legends of Z t-shirts (or equivalent)!

    I am really bad at remembering jokes... so that one was a struggle. And now this week... I don't have any pets. I know, sad.

    I already have a t-shirt, but I everyone deserves to see this photo of my (dearly departed) Siamese.

    Well, now, something that I can effectively contribute to! 😹

    First, Jack and Gigi, our two Golden Retriever rescues. Misty and Elizabeth are already familiar with them from Twitter.

    Gigi, our female rescue Golden Retriever
    Now Felix, or Fevil as he's known, harassing Gigi.

    And we can't pass up a pet picture thread without the late Oscar. He's been gone 15 months and we still miss him dearly.

    Here is a picture of my late dog Tux, a small Munsterlander together with my daughter's spaniel. Tux was born in 2005, a year after our first Linux machine went into production on the mainframe.


    And this is my cat Hannie, named after a project HNI: Hone Network Interface, a 3270 passthru system.



    As you can see I use to name my pets to work related projects.
    There was a cat once called Sophie, named after the project SOFE (Simplify Operations of the FrontEnd, a predecessor of HNI).
