my profile pic...sorry it sucks, is not a good camera and well...he does not like being held, when i let him go after the picture my arms were bleeding
Your pic was showing up as a blank black box for me (and presumably most everybody else). That is, until I looked directly at your profile. It showed up there, and then seemed to cache the picture and now I see it on the boards as well. Might be because it was uploaded directly to Furtopia. To make sure it works properly (and to help reduce unnecessary bulk on the server), avatars should be uploaded to an outside hosting service (imgur or photobucket, for example; FA-hosted images will not work for this), and then you just use the URL field to get the image in your profile.
Also, I don't have a current pet, so I put up a tribute to the most recent dog my family had.
