Default Golden retriever - jpeg artifacts???????

Hello,
I've joined a photo-share website fotopic
Anyway, even if I upload my original image, when viewing it at original size the site has still compressed the image
Therefore, there is a lot of blotchiness that I don't see in my original
Even if I upload a smaller image- the site still compresses it and the "noise" becomes very evident. Doesn't seem to be noticeable in most of my pics but in this one, it is very evident. What can I do in photoshop to get rid of this.

Default re: My viewing

I currently am using a Samtron 17" monitor (not an LCD). Tucker looks O.K. to me but the background wall looks as if it has swirls in it. It also looks quite blotchy. If you really zoom in on the original there is some jpeg artifacting, but certainly not this obvious.
Is there a quick fix to smooth out the blotches on the wall (or a lengthy one) that isn't too hard to master?.
Thanks

Note: Well, the swirls were not due to my picture. It turns out that my monitor was set to high color (16 bit) not True color (32 bit). Since I changed the setting- No more swirls. Hooray!!!!

Default This is what I did

O.K.
Since the background around Tucker was pretty bland anyway, I decided to fool around in photoshop and paste him into a different background. It's not perfect (can see some places where I've used the clone tool, etc) but I'm pretty new to using photoshop and the magnetic lasso. Any suggestions would be appreciated and remember this is my first try!

Thanks,
