I only have these guys.  He's a black scottie, Sebastian 23 months old, she's a wheaten scottie, almost white, Sasha 21 months.  This pic shows exactly what they do best.  Ugly guy in the middle has a BDS 4 rack.

SD,
If Randy Owen knows where you live, he is gonna come kick your posterior!  This is a temporary hijack of a thread but I have seen those guys several time.  The first time was just as their very first album was coming out.  They appeared in the local high school gym here.  It holds about 3,500 people and it wasn't half full.  6 months later...FAMOUS!!!  You never know what "no name" group you go see is going to become someday.  Never underestimate great talent.  The trick is to recognize great talent!

Now, back to great puppy pics.

Hey KY,

I've hijacked more threads than the Mafia in the SoHo district ;D  (For those that don't understand that, rent Goodfellas).  I'm not scared of Randy........I gotta have 20 years of youth on my side and can still run pretty fast  ;D

My wife, obviously, is not great at picking out talent.  However, I agree with you.....more puppy photos!

Thanks Deb and seemore.
Go for it Giz. I've had a couple of other breeds when I was growing up and was real attahed to them. One thing I've learned though, LABS rule. They are "true brothers of the heart." :)

We get to doggie sit from time to time which works for me  ;D.

Good thing is when you want to take off for the weekend, no arrangements need to be made.

Allie hoping for a handout.  Just ask her if she is "begging" and she will drop her head in shame.

This was our sweet pup, Nutmeg.  She died at the end of September.  She was 1/2 lab & 1/2 boxer.  This picture was taken about 5 years ago but it so represents the goof that she was.......   

(http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/kk234/deb415611/IMG_0129-Copy.jpg)

I work from home and that was her bed in my office.


Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: Smoking Duck on January 09, 2009, 10:17:58 AM
Those are awesome, Giz and Deb.  They both look like they have mischief in their eyes  ;) :)

Deb, I also have a home office and that's right where Steeler would be (unless of course, I went into the house and then she was there).  The last couple of years at my old job, I put about 70,000 miles per year on my vehicle driving for work.  I'll bet she was with me for about 50,000 of those.  She absolutely loves to go driving with me and gets so ticked off at me if I even think about putting her in the back of the Envoy  ;D 

No other dog will be able to replace Nutmeg but I hope you get another one soon so as to share in the memories like you did with Nutmeg. 

I was out plowing my driveway today and I noticed a dog that I haven't seen before out by the barn.  I then went down the street about half a mile (got a couple of seasoned citizens that I plow as well as they can't get out and do it anymore) and plowed some more.  They are the nicest folks in the world and always try to pay me but I keep telling them that karma wouldn't allow me to take any money.  The funny thing is they think that Karma is my wife  ;D ;D.  They keep telling me to tell that Karma that she can allow me to take money (I always giggle when they say that).  Anyways, that dog followed me down the street and just watched me plow the driveways.  I never could get that dog to come close enough to really get a good ID on what type but appears to be a mixed breed.  Just hope someone didn't drop it off in the country to fend for itself.  I'll keep a watch out and see if I can't figure out whose it may be or if it's a stray.  Just hate to see stray pets and Steeler always loves to be around other dogs, so if worse comes to worse, just may have to put out a second bowl of food.

Nope, no other dog will replace her.   She was my first dog.  We are going to get a lab pup in the spring.  We went back & forth about getting a second dog about a year ago and never did it.  So maybe two pups.  I'd like to do a rescue dog but we have three cats and the situation would have to be perfect.

Ok, enough of the doggie pix.  - If I can't have one you can't enjoy yours so much!  ;D Our Irish Setter of 14 years died 14 years ago, and I haven't been allowed a dog since.   :'( Cats are another thing - all strays and rescues.  In fact there is one that comes once or twice a day for a meal - has been doing that for about 6 years, and we still haven't been able to get within 3 foot of her (actually a he in all probability).   The indoor cat - is 13 years old and was a rescue off what is now my best friend's deck when she was a little over a week old.  Had to hand feed her for a few weeks.  I'm not really a cat person, but the cats think I am.  They have all taken a liking to me and want to park in my lap as soon as I sit down.  Irritates my daughter and wife to no end! hehe!

Now, that's a pretty chocolate, FL.  How old?

As far as cats go.......we've got two that reside in the house......someone had thrown them in a dumpster when they were kittens so I crawled in the dumpster and fished them out.  Now, I'm not really a cat person and neither is the wife.  However, we live in the country and my wife HATES mice.  So, as my buddy, Consigs, pointed out......the enemy of my enemy is my friend  ;D  Now, the kids are so attached to them that I couldn't get rid of them if I wanted to (which I don't).  It's fun to watch Steeler and the cats interact.  Labs love just about everything but the cats, not so much  ;D

That's Ruger, He was 4 in that picture, he is six now.

I had a Yellow lab for 14 years before Ruger. Problem with the chocolate was that we sort of chose house colors based on the yellow. so now the chocolate fur shows bad... lots of vacuuming and blading.

Ruger is a thief. He will break out of the yard and steal stuff from other yards and bring it home. Gloves, shoes....

After showing this thread to my husband we spent last night looking at breeder websites.  He has switched from wanting a yellow to chocolate.  Then we looked here again & FL's pup was here ;D.  We found two breeders nearby that based on the websites we want to check out.

Anyways, that dog followed me down the street and just watched me plow the driveways.  I never could get that dog to come close enough to really get a good ID on what type but appears to be a mixed breed.  Just hope someone didn't drop it off in the country to fend for itself.  I'll keep a watch out and see if I can't figure out whose it may be or if it's a stray.

Thanks everyone.  And I think all the pups I have seen here are absolute beauties.  I love Ky's terriers, all the labs, and Nutmeg.  I love the brindle markings, anyway.
We will get another Dobie one of these days/months/years - who knows when. 
All I know is it sure is lonely around here without one. 
Keep those pictures coming!  I love dogs! 
Cats, too.  SD, I have several friends who live in outlying rural areas, and people dump off dogs and cats all the time.  I will never understand that.
And Pens, nothing wrong with pet trout.  Post some pictures!

There is a reason for everything, and for whatever reason we were only supposed to have Dakota for a short time.

Nice pics, Carnie, Nepa, MR.

Nice post, my dogs have always been more than just dogs to me.  Buddy is our current pardner, alarm system and waste disposal unit.  He had a tough start, abusive first owner and then got shifted around from family to family for a while.  He was three when we got him and very cautious around men due to his previous experiences.  He is nine now, half blind and spoiled nearly useless but in the end he has watched over my daughter since her birth and performed his duties without flaw.  He has long since earned his place in this home.  One of the people that used to care for him when we had to travel called him a "love sponge", a very affectionate and loving dog, it's a minor miracle considering his background.  He is half lab and have Australian shepherd and just an all around good dog.

Great looking pics!

SS, you can really see the Australian shepherd in his face.  Good on you for taking in an abused dog.  I always feel like finding the owners of abused dogs and repeating the treatment on them but always stop before I do anything stupid.  I had an Australian Shepherd many years back (about 20 years ago).  That dog was very protective of me.  When he (his name was Brio which is italian for life) was about 2 years old, a german shepherd that lived about 1/2 mile down the country road came up our way and started growling at me, Brio came out of nowhere and next thing I know, he's got that dog by the throat and just wouldn't let go.  Eventually, my ex-father in law and I had to throw both of them in the pond before he would let go.  I'd never seen the dog like that before or after but when he thought that dog was threatening me, he tore into him.  I remember he was as strong as a horse as well.  When my ex-wife would try and take him for a walk, he'd eventually just get to the point where he was dragging her. 

Thanks for the pics....his face reminded me of some good times with my old buddy, Brio.

My last pal was half Australian shepherd and Collie. He was also a gentle giant. 85 lbs and the kids my wife were babysitting for would try to ride him. When he had enough of that he would just retreat to a quiet place, never a snarl or anything. He was a rescue dog we got and he did have a good 15 years with us.

Mike, great pics. I often wonder what dogs thing when we dress them up. I had a dobie when I was a kid and dressed him in pj's. It was a hoot to watch him walk around.
Nepas, Kiki is one beautiful toy. Her colors are really attracting to look at. I take a glance at her and have to look longer. They just pull me in.
Caribou, now that one's for the birds. I, we raise chickens and guineas also. My daughter had one guinea, when she was young, that use to sit on her shoulder as she walked around.
SS, I'm always partial to the labs and their mixes. I see strong lab in the pics, always dominent genes it seems. :D From blockhead to otter tail. Great pics.
Duck, my dobie did the same time when 2 german shepards ran up on me. He grabbed the bitch by the throught and the male ran away to hide. It was the only time I ever saw him in that mode. He was another gentle giant.
This is a great thread.  :) :) :)

Do you have yours trained to attack, Nepas?   ;D

My wife likes them......calls them lap dogs......I call them ankle biters but I do like them just the same.  The wife really wants a small one in the worst way.  If my hunting buddies saw me with one of them, it'd take a long time to live that down.  ;)  But, heck, I'm not afraid to wear pink shirts, so why should that bother me?  :D

I've got a friend who has 2 labs and his wife has a weiner dog.  That little thing will run right along with the labs (though he needs to watch out for speed bumps  ;)) and when he gets mad at them, he jumps up and kind of kicks them in the face.  It's funnier than heck.  He'll even go in the water when we're working with the dogs on water retrieves.  He goes a lot slower and every now and then, one of the labs will nudge him back to shore.  He sure is funny to watch!

Ok Here's my addition to the Pet Pics. It's of our new Jack-Russel/Rat Terrior puppy "Roxie" and our cat "C-A-T". They are just playing and since Roxie's arrival the cat has lost 3 lbs. Wonder why? They are the best of friends. Sorry its alittle dark at first but it lightens up.

Here are my two friends.  The chocolate Knucle head is done, 13 yr old when we lost him in Fall 2007.  A few months before father in law.  We think the dog's loss helped us prepare for him.

the Black is one is 12 now and loving the attention.  She is smaller but has arthritis.  Meds and shots help that.  We know is not to long but she is still happy and enjoys being near us.

Thanks for the nice comments, Duck, HCT and SS!  There is a little more to Buddy's story.  I was out giving him some exercise out in the muskeg one day and another guy happened to be out there walking around.  He said that he used to have a dog that looked just like Buddy and his name was Buddy also.  It was his first abusive owner.  Toughest moment of my life, I have no use for people who abuse animals.  I had to turn and leave quickly, didn't settle down for hours.

You are right Duck, Buddy mostly looks like a lab but has a little more delicate head inherited from his mother, a blue Australian Shepherd.  Buddy has that nice mellow Lab attitude with the playfullness and clever way of approaching things that he got from mom.  It's a good mix.

SS, gentle giant is a good description.  Buddy is 95 pounds of hair and tail but doesn't have a mean bone in his body.  I really don't think he would bite even to protect us, it just isn't in him.  He puts himself between my daughter and any perceived danger and I know that anything coming at her would have to take Buddy first.  Having said that she has pushed him around from the time she was tiny and he pretends to not like it but if she makes a move or a squeak he is there.

HCT, Buddy definitely has the Lab body and general confirmation.  You can't see it well in these pictures but he has a Lab type body with some very nice blue/grey markings throughout his coat.  Just a darn good looking dog.  His one drawback is he sheds like a Lab, manufactures his weight in loose hair every day.  Wish I could discover his secret, I lose it almost as quickly as him but it doesn't come back!

Great pictures and stories everyone!

Larry more like Street Stray found outside of the school in the winter as a kitten 5 years ago. She is only about 8-10lbs in the video. Roxie was just that small. But she never backed down even when C-A-T sat on her. That is the cats name spell cat.

IKnowWood, beautiful. Yeah that arthritis is a heartbreaker. One of mine has a touch of it, right now I'm just keeping an eye on it. Great faces on both, the black girl's is beautiful, reminds me of my Zorro. No greater love than that of an older lab. ;) :)

HCT, the black lab is a beauty.  We love her.  She has learned how to suck up real good she has this innocent look then picks up her paw and taps my leg.  We knew from when we got her at 8 weeks she would have problems.  Vet told us then to take her bad to the breeder, we could not.  We knew how that would end and could not part with her.  Vet did help her back then by telling us to mix 50% puppy food with 50% adult food and use that mix to feed her.  It would slow her growth and help the joints fit the body better and not get to big.  Much better for her bones to grow in.  She is a wonderful friend.  Mostly grey these days than black.

Post by: HCT on January 15, 2009, 06:58:34 AM
IKnowWood, I had problems with my first, Troubles, he had seizures all night long the first day he was home. He suggested contacting the breeder also. The breeder said he would take him back but not pay the vet bills. Sure, I would have given him back only to be put down. Luckily there hasn't been any problems since, 10yrs. Knock on wood. No pun intended. :D :D :D

Well, I just made the garage all toasty for Steeler.  Whne I bought the house, the garage was uninsulated, however, it had a furnace in it.  It's a nice big two story garage.  So, I finished the downstairs portion (we only use the upstairs for storage).  The previous owner, however, did not put a return duct in the furnace, so I would blow through a 100 gallon tank of propane in about 5 days with really cold weather.  So, tonight, I ran a return duct from the furnace down to the downstairs portion of the garage.  It's running like a champ and I can keep it nice and toasty in there for her.  Normally, she stays in the house with us, but during the night, I keep her in the whelping box just in case she should decide to throw those pups in the middle of the night.  If she were to do it in the middle of the living room floor, well, let's just say Momma Duck would be looking for a new drake  ;D  Never done any HVAC work before, but I may have to add this to my resume. 

Steeler sure looks like she's ready to go at any time.  It seems like she's getting bigger by the minute and her teets are getting fuller and fuller.  The kids made the comment that they look like Mom's and man, was Momma angry  :D  They did say that Mom's don't sag as much, so there was some good in the statement.  Well, if I can make it through being unemployed and that statement by the kids, I figure I'm good to go!

I'll post pics as soon as she spits them out.

I think something is getting ready to happen.  When I went to let her out this morning, she usually does her business and then heads straight for the door for the house.  Today, she went staright back for the door to the garage, which is where her whelping box is as if to tell me she needed to be in there.  I'm probably reading way more into it but I just get the feeling we'll be there soon!

I think your right, I think she's ready to go, too.
Have you been taking her temperature?  I forgot if it's a drop or spike your looking for but it indicates about 24 hours to go.
My dog had puppies a long, long time ago, she started seeking the whelping box the last day or two.

Well, we're now up to 9 total.  5 black and 4 yellow.  Not sure if it's over yet or not but Steeler has more of a relaxed look on her face, so maybe she's done.  9 would be plenty!  Pics to follow once I'm done with my nap.  ;D

Thanks Carolyn.......I'm very tired.  It's been a long and fun day........I can only imagine how Steeler feels.  The fun thing was that the kids got home about 4:45 pm.  I met them outside and told them that I needed some help in the garage before they went into the house and surprised them with the pups!  Well, then Steeler surprised me with two more (this was when I thought we had 6) and just as the kids were looking at the two that had just been born before we got there, out plops number 9!  My son looks up at me and says, 'I did not need to see that!"  So, I giggled like a schoolgirl.  I was thinking we'd have 7 but 9 has exceeded my expectations......who knows when I go back in 30 minutes, I might have 10 or 11.  I always knew Steeler was an overachiever  ;D

I'm at a loss for names though.......I was gonna name them after the 6 Steeler Super Bowl victories when I thought there might only be 6.  The Steelers better start winning some more  ;D

I agree nickld.  She handled it much better than I did.  Ought to be interesting feeding 9 mouths with 8 teets, but I'm sure she'll take care of business.

I've got photos posted on my blog, but here are some as well.

This was the first one on the scene.  I've nicknamed this one Hickory
(http://i322.photobucket.com/albums/nn436/msovik/IMG_0012-2.jpg)

Steeler had neatly placed the pups already born under the heat lamp while she went to business giving birth to the others.  There's Hickory, Mesquite, Oak and Apple in this pic

(http://i322.photobucket.com/albums/nn436/msovik/IMG_0017-1.jpg)

And here's one of the whole gang: Steeler, Hickory, Mesquite, Oak, Apple, Maple, Cherry, Pecan, Alder and Special Blend
(http://i322.photobucket.com/albums/nn436/msovik/IMG_0026-1.jpg)

And here's my cats who couldn't figure what all the hoopla was about.  Ashley and then Tiger.

Post by: Smoking Duck on February 20, 2009, 06:21:41 PM
It is like Christmas Morning, Deb.  It's obviously not the same as when my kids will have kids but it's as close as it gets.  You know, Steeler has been right by my side these last 4 years.  She and I have put in some long hard hours training and hunting and she never ever has come to the center of the boxing ring (so to speak) when the bell has been rung.  I guess it's kind of hard to explain to those who haven't gone through it or had pets, but it was really cool to be a part of it.

The most amazing thing to me was in watching Mother Nature take over.  I got to thinking about how the pup would come out and instinctively, Steeler would know to get that membrane of of the pup.  I just wondered how she knew.  It wasn't like I'd spent the last 4 years training her how to do that and we never sat down and watched a DVD........she just knew how to do it and that it needed to be done.  Sometimes we, as humans, have to put together a consortium of geniuses together to figure out how to screw in a light bulb.  I guess it just gives you a greater appreciation of nature and the animal kingdom.

I kept waiting for one to pop out........even after 9 and she was done, I took a flashlight and shined it up there, but there weren't any  ;D  I had a buddy that was looking for a chocolate female but it wasn't to be.  I was happy to see some yellow myself.  Steeler was one of 14 from a chocolate mother and all 14 were black!

Kind of a sad way to start the day but the runt of the litter didn't make it through the night.  Steeler was hiding the little guy and when I checked on them, found the little one not moving and unresponsive.  I guess this is all part of the circle of life as well, but not really the fun part.

Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: Smoking Duck on February 21, 2009, 06:08:47 AM
The way I look at it, perhaps Mother Nature knew ahead of time and figured it would be better to take the little guy now rather than have someone get really attached to him and have it hurt much more later.  Everything happens for a reason..we don't always know why but then, why should we have to know why? 

The other 8 are doing real well.  They're feeding and sleeping.  Poor Steeler........can't even get her to come out of her box to eat or drink.  I'll go back in an hour and pull the pups off if she doesn't want to come out herself.  Momma's gotta take care of herself to take care of the kids.

Yea, you'd have to get in a long line........I get the first yellow female.  Truth be told, I haven't even taken the time to see how many males and females I have yet.  Probably do that the next time I go out there.  That Steeler is one dedicated mama.  She hasn't even bothered to get up to eat or drink.  So, I've been holding her water and food dish and she's eating out of my hands.  God bless her!

Finally got Steeler to get out of that whelping box for just a bit.  Figured out I have 6 males and 2 females.  All of the black labs are males and 2 of the yellows are males as well.  The wife says she wants another female so I guess I'm going to have to come up with a name for the yellow female.  I'm thinking Polly (which is short for Troy Polamalu) but the wife isn't crazy about that name yet.  At least it will be fitting to have a black and a gold dog in my household  ;D

Marc,
You could always keep it simple and just name her Dee-O-Gee. Simple name that rolls off the tongue, yet sounds mysterious and foreign. Also helps the kids spell.
Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: Smoking Duck on February 22, 2009, 05:22:34 AM
Well, that would be simple enough, but the kids are 8 and 10.  If they can't spell a name like Dakota by now, I need to give up the dogs and focus more on the kids  ;D  Although, I do like that and could call her Dee for short.  Not sure how my duaghter would like that as her name is Kennadee and we call her Dee all the time. 
Title: Re: Doggie Pix

Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: Smoking Duck on February 22, 2009, 05:43:50 PM
I thought about Giggles but my wife was afraid that would lead to beatings when she went to obedience school  ;D

My wife wants the name Lulu and call her Lu for short.  I just couldn't imagine myself in a duck blind with all my tough friends and me yelling "Back, Lulu" or "heel, Lulu".  Man, my wife just doesn't get me at all!  She said why don't I just name it Dumbarse and I told her I reserved that name for my wife.  OK, that didn't go over very well.

I just don't think my wife should have a say in the name.  I'm the one that's gonna be housebreaking her (the lab, not my wife), I'm gonna be the one giving it obedience training and retriever training.  I just gotta believe that the honor of naming her should go to the one that's gonna be raising her. 

I really think I might name her "Tater" and then when she has kids, they'd be Tater Tots.

Post by: seemore on February 22, 2009, 05:54:37 PM

Thanks Q and Giz.  Tater it's gonna be.

They sure are getting stronger every day and Momma is doing great as well.  It's off to the vets today to have their dew claws removed.  Momma is not going to like that one bit but it's best for the pups and a lot easier to do it now rather than later.
Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: Caribou on February 23, 2009, 05:57:40 AM
Hey Marc a word of advice...don't freak out if the scabs fall off early where the dew claws used to be.
I had my pups dew claws removed once and momma licked the scabs off a couple days after the were removed on a few of the pups.
And seeing that joint where the cut was made just sitting there was a little shocking but they scab back up again and heal just fine.
Glad to hear things are going well and I like the name Tator a lot!
Carolyn
Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: Smoking Duck on February 23, 2009, 06:02:11 AM
Thanks Carolyn..........I'll try to remember that about the dew claw.  I have a tendancy to worry about things involving my dogs way too much.  I've gotten more than enough confirmation that the yellow female will be named Tater.  Just not sure which of the two females it will be.......gonna wait a little bit before I make that determination.

Ahhhhhh, you're gonna push me right into that divorce court, aren't you?  ;D ;D

Normally, I wouldn't think twice about it, but I'm going to have a lot of work to do with the new pup and I really want to spend a lot of time with Steeler this summer working on trying to get some more stuff done with her.  She's probably going to need a refresher course on hand signals and she needed just a bit more work on the double blind retrieves through water when we stopped training for hunting season.  That's gonna take a lot of time and quite frankly, I don't like training two dogs at one time, so I'd have my hands more than full with just Steeler and Tater.  If all goes well, Tater will be hunting alongside Steeler this fall.

Steeler is not happy with me today.  She knows it was me who took the pups to the vet and caused the pain.  She watches me very closely with the pups right now to make sure I won' do anything else to them.

Believe it or not, we're also considering adopting two 3 year old female labs.  There is a couple I know (like many here in Northern Indiana) who are losing their home and have two labs and can't take them with them to where they have to move to.  They want to keep the girls together and cannot find a home right now.  Mrs. Duck and I simply can't afford to keep them either but they're beautiful labs, so I'm trying to convince the wife that maybe we can keep them until this family gets back on their feet and then we could give them back to them.  This crappy economy is ruining a lot of things around here.  Hopefully, it will turn around soon or the Duck family could be the next in line with these people.  These labs aren't hunting labs, they're house dogs and the wife is not crazy with the idea of having us, 2 kids, 2 cats and 4 dogs in the house.  I swear when I win the lottery I'm going to build a 2000 sf house just to house labs in (they'll have their own bedrooms as well as adjoining bathrooms).  It's bad enough when the economic times hit us.......but for the love of God, leave the labs alone! ;D

SD, me and Ann would gladly cut back on things up here just to help pay room and board for the labs. She's been working with the Shepard rescue and we think we might get a new family member sooner than expected. I'd work 7 days a week for a good home for them...

Marc,
Since you would be technically providing a foster home for these 2 labs, would the local shelter or rescue group possibly help you out with food?
Maybe even hit the local grocery store, feed store or pet stores for discounted torn bags.
Just a thought. :)

Marc, Glad to hear the pups are all okay. Steeler will get over it, she knows that you would never cause any harm. She's a lab, need I say more. ;)
There are alot of 'soup kitchens' & 'food banks' for dogs cropping up. Ask around at the vets and shelters. Get a copy of the "Animal Magazine", at the vets, they're free. I think that's the name, anyway it's a newspaper with lots of info.  My daughter is in the process of getting more info on starting one in my area.
Do what you can to rescue those 2 girls, they're labs and labs bring good karma. :) Boy that sounds silly, but it's true. You'll never regret it. You already know that. ;)

Actually, I think my buddy who has the dog that sired the pups is going to take them in with the caveat that anytime they get back on their feet, the couple can have them back.  My buddy is single and has a whole house the dogs can run through.  Plus, it's an added bonus that he doesn't have to "check" with anyone else first.  I'll watch the dogs whenever he needs to go out of town, so I think these are being taken care of for now.  I have a bad feeling these may be one of many.  Sad situation, really.

Actually, I think my buddy who has the dog that sired the pups is going to take them in with the caveat that anytime they get back on their feet, the couple can have them back.  My buddy is single and has a whole house the dogs can run through.  Plus, it's an added bonus that he doesn't have to "check" with anyone else first.  I'll watch the dogs whenever he needs to go out of town, so I think these are being taken care of for now.  I have a bad feeling these may be one of many.  Sad situation, really.
Agreed!  I was wading (fly fishing) the river Sat. afternoon and just after starting the first casts, something bumped into my leg - scared the snot outta me - thought some big gator was gonna get me!  Ended up it was a rather large black lab that came in to greet me and he was silent - I did not hear him come up behind me.  Patted him on the head and scratched his ears a little and he went off on his merry way.  Coming off the river, there he was again, a good looking adult black male lab in good condition, and three smaller and less well fed black labs (one had a hurt leg) that were running around the parking lot.  Nobody had ever seen them before - no collars or tags - and this was sorta in the sticks.  We all talked about what to do and one of the guys had a tonneau cover on the bed of his truck and he decided to take them back into Nashville and the rescue people.  I would have loved to have had him - he was a beautiful dog.  I can't believe someone would dump all those beautiful dogs.  That is someone I wouldn't mind hurting!

Speaking of puppies, we just added a new member to our pack.  14 month old mastiff his name is chief, and yes he likes everything smoked with mesquite!  :D

I think the housing crisis has made people make decisions they never would have thought possible in their lives...the stock market as well...I guess if you love your dogs...you'd never ever drop them somewhere (which I would suspect in this case). I would eat out of a McDonald's dumpster before I/we would leave our dogs...sad really...good news is...IT CAN REALLY...ONLY GET BETTER....

Lq, it is unfortunate but the rescue shelters are swelling because of the amount of people that are loosing their homes. They are forced into rentals that do not want pets. The ones that tear my heart out are the mixed breeds that go to the animal shelter and do not get adopted. The rescue shelters for pure breed's are for now doing ok out here.

Having a little scare this weekend.  The smallest pup left seems to be having some problems.  I noticed it seemed he was having a hard time breathing last night so I swept out all of the pine bedding from the whelping box.  He was crying something fierce last night and didn't think he'd make it through the night to be honest.  I kept trying to get him to take Steeler's teet because he's now about half the size of the other pups but he wouldn't do it.

I stayed up with him until about 2 am watching and wondering if there was anything else I could do for him until I realized this is just nature's way.  Got back up at 5 am figuring he'd be gone by the time I checked on him and he's still kicking.  He isn't whining at all like he was last night and seems more normal.

Not sure if he'll make it or not, but I'm still pulling for him.

Thanks Deb.  The hardest part is not being able to do anything........but Steeler knows what's best and whatever happens will happen........that's nature's way I guess.  I don't like it but that's the way it's been working for a long time now.

Well, unfortunately, the little guy didn't make it through.  I just went and checked on him about 10 minutes ago and he was gone.  It sure isn't easy even though I didn't get too attached to him but I sure liked that little guys spunk.  He was about half the size of the others but would always just shove himself in there to get some milk when he needed it.  The others seem to be doing fine and Steeler was none too happy with me taking that little one out of the enclosure.  It may be Mother Nature's way but it sure doesn't make it any easier  :'(

Here is the new member to the Giz house hold.  Mrs Giz couldn't resist.  She went to a Dog Festival, which is an event to place dogs from shelters.  The Mrs found that most of them had so many strings attached that it made you wonder if these places were really trying to get the dogs into homes.  Does someone really need to be home all day long for a dog to have a happy life?

She found this one on the way out the door.  Family had a litter of 12 and couldn't keep them.  It is a boxer sharpei mix but should be a good companion.
Other than a little whining, it has been mostly sleeping as you can see.  :)

He's a cutie Giz. Good luck and good karma for rescuing him.
I agree with you about the rescues. My daughter does some fostering and the rules they have makes you wonder, not to mention the costs. Makes you think that it's easier and cheaper to buy a pedigree pup.

Very cute Giz. 

 I know what you mean about the strings, we are starting to look for a dog and have gone back & forth between a rescue dog and buying a lab.  Some of the applications for the rescues are pretty intense.

Having the one puppy is a handful enough not to mention what you are going to be going through even though I have been there with a litter of Springers back in the 80s.

That was our baby at about 2 months, here is Sage now...,(http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo245/josbocc/P1010008.jpg)

She can be as cute as the day is long, but put a tennis ball in front of her, and you had better have eaten your wheaties that morning.  By the way, she loves Habs Canadian Bacon, and just about anything else that Dad pulls out of the smoker.

Up in Smoke and HCT,

Thanks,

Momma will be very happy to hear that her little girl is winning more hearts.  Duck, best of luck with the pups.  Our daughter, and sister-in-law both have Labs, Bubba and Bailey are both Chocolates, and are just a couple months older than Sage.  It's quite a circus when we get the three of them together.  The labs are stronger..., but the Sager is faster!!!

Reading this whole thread has been a reminder that todays issues are not really all that important.  I've been moved to tears more than once sharing all of your stories, and remembering my former friends.  This forum is not just a place to share recipes or ideas..., it's a place to come to when you need some cheering up.

Thanks to everyone that has shared an experience about their "Best Friend."

You know as much as I loved the breed it's hard to recommend them because they were designed to break your heart.
Their average life span is about 7 years.  Really!  And remember that is an average, anywhere between 5-10 is "normal'
I lost them as young as 6 and as old as 9.  And they are the worst breed for bloat, too.
I feel kind of silly posting a pic of a deceased dog but here was one of my Danes, Oobie:

Carolyn,

Look at those jowels..., what a beautiful pup.  We can rest easy knowing that they imparted a special part of themselves on us that we will never forget.

If you can find it in your heart, don't deprive yourself, and don't deprive a much deserving friend.  I know from experience that owning a pet, and working can leave you with limited time.  I gave away a beautiful Golden Retriever about 10 years ago because it was just me and him, and I was working 10 -12 hours a day.  In  retrospect, I would have kept him and just gave him that much more attention when I got home.

I hope you find another companion that will fill you life with Joy.

Jeff

Thanks Jeff,
It's so different for me now that I have a 6 year old daughter.  I had most my dogs before I had her so I didn't have to explain to her why a dog died after only 6 or 8 years.
I'm going to probably get a dog like you have or other sporting dog next time around.
I love Goldens and Labs!

They are such a wonderful breed when it comes to temperment and that face!

Jeff,   Sage is a beauty.  I have a cat named Sage, she thinks she is a dog.  She plays fetch, she will fetch for an hour if you will throw for her.  She would probably give your Sage a run for her money. 

Carolyn,  Obie is a beauty also.  Don't feel silly, I also have my Nutmeg posted in this thread.


We are working on getting a pup.  We have decided to get a yellow lab.  My work schedule is crazy for another month so we can't get one until things slow down but are doing all the leg work.   We went to Petco yesterday and went puppy supply shopping.  My husband went to the toy aisle first ;D

Well, the pups are a couple days over three weeks old and they're really starting to develop physically and mentally.  They're now sitting on their own, running about a little and as pack animals go, trying to develop their status within the pack.  It's pretty funny watching them wrestle and trying to establish their dominance.  They even try to growl but it's hard to take it seriously when it's so high pitched.  But, when it's time to rest, it's time to rest and they're all in the big dog pile.

The pups have reached one month of age today.  So, the process of weaning them off of Momma begins today.  They also received the anti-worming medication and will get their first shots in two weeks.  Do you think they got the hang of it pretty quick?

Yea, I thought it would be easy to keep half of them separated and feed half at one time and the other half at another time.  Ummmmm, not so easy  ;D  Now, I go out with two pie plates.  Start the puppy food in a can in two days (mixed in with the milk) and slowly make their way to dry food over the course of the week.

No kidding!
My hubbie is an artist and business has been on such a decline since the beginning of 2008.
Art is kind of the canary in the coal mine. 
When the news was announcing last January that the recession started early last year we said "no kidding!"
But I will have a dog when this storm passes and my daughter isn't begging for a dog right now.
When I had to put my last dog down a few years back, she and my hubbie waited outside the vet office while I stayed with our dog to the end.
When I came out all sad and teary she looks up at me and said "Does this mean we can get a Basset Hound now?"
She was only 3 and it was so funny I couldn't help laughing and crying at the same time!

I'll let you all in on a little secret.  Deb and I have been in negotiations for quite some time with regards to the puppies.  She has wanted one and was looking for just the right pup to fill her and her family's needs.  She really wanted a yellow female and I was very sad that we only had two yellow females in the litter and she was third on the list for a yellow female.  Well, some things got worked out and I've decided that I was going to go with a big yellow male (henceforth known as Bubba).  It is with great pleasure that I introduce to this great forum the newest member of Deb's family:  Saffron!  Deb is coming to pick her up on the weekend of the 18th, so I get to keep her for an extra week before she travels all the way up to the great northeast portion of the US.  Here's her official pic (the human is actually mine, my 8 year old daughter, Kennadee.  I tried to throw her in on the deal with Saffron but Deb said she was done with kids and wanted something easier  ;D)

Deb and I have been in communication since I found out Steeler was pregnant......your order came in a little too late.  I'll be sure to put you on the waiting list for the next litter next year.  Steeler's gonna have one more litter and I'm going to keep a female from that litter and continue her lineage.  Then Steeler will be done.  Some folks will have 4 or more litters with a dog but I only like to do two.  I think it's hard on the dogs and Steeler is a working dog as well.  So, you'll be on the waiting list along with others who requested pups but we just didn't have enough to go around.

Since everyone is in the puppy mode. I was looking around (Cause Momma told me to find it!) and found a Dog Treat recipe that I make. I know the name is kinda funny but just double the size of the batch and make the drops a little bigger on the cookie sheet for the bigger dogs. I also try to form the drops into a nugget shape. My Lab used to love 'em and the Jack/Rat can't get enough of them. Anyone can make these, its a great Sunday afternoon project to do with the kids or Grandkids.

Ankle Biter Peanut Butter Drops
(For those little guys out there)
 
 
3/4  cup flour 
1 egg 
1 tablespoon honey 
1 teaspoon  peanut butter 
1/4  cup  shortening 
1  teaspoon  baking soda 
1/4  cup rolled oats 
1/2  teaspoon vanilla 
 
1.   Heat honey and peanut butter in microwave until peanut butter is melted (about 20 seconds)
2.   Mix add remaining ingredients 
3.   Drop by 1/2 teaspoonful onto cookie sheet 
4.   Bake at 350 F for 8 to 10 minutes.

Store in a air tight container.

Hey Deb,
How are you going to keep yourself from wanting to sing the first couple of lines "Mellow Yellow" to your new puppy Saffron?
 ;)
I love her name!
Food names are cool for dogs.  Not for chickens though!  Every time my daughter gives a food name to a chicken something eats it.  She had "Cream Puff", "Cookie Crumb", and "Oreo Cookie" and they all go eaten by either coyotes or hawk.  She just named a new chicken "Cheese Puff" and told her not to grow too attached! I don't think that is a worry for a dog unless it's a yorkie or chihuahua.

Hey Deb,
How are you going to keep yourself from wanting to sing the first couple of lines "Mellow Yellow" to your new puppy Saffron?
 ;)
I love her name!
Food names are cool for dogs.  Not for chickens though!  Every time my daughter gives a food name to a chicken something eats it.  She had "Cream Puff", "Cookie Crumb", and "Oreo Cookie" and they all go eaten by either coyotes or hawk.  She just named a new chicken "Cheese Puff" and told her not to grow too attached! I don't think that is a worry for a dog unless it's a yorkie or chihuahua.
Carolyn

HCT keeps mentioning the song and it has been stuck in my head for quite awhile.  I actually downloaded it to my phone the other day but haven't listened yet :)

Our dog that died in September was Nutmeg.  She was brindle with no white and looked just like the inside of a nutmeg, that is what got us started.  We also have Cocoa & Sage (cats, though Sage thinks she is a dog). 

Good luck to Cheese Puff, I hope Cheese Puff is not doomed.

We had a chicken once (thanks to the kindergarten teacher).  My son named her Fluffy.  Fluffy spent about six months with us and then moved to her winter home (my brother-in-laws farm).  Dick hated that chicken, it would run up to him and be underfoot because it thought it was a pet.  Dick was an old farmer type who didn't make friends with his animals

Sorry we have not been on the Forum in a while.  The reason is that we are "parents" again!  Here is our new Dobie, Tasha:
(http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq101/seemorephoto/100_0904.jpg)
This picture was taken Saturday, after we got home with her.  She is from Hartland, Wisconsin;  not too far from Milwaukee.  She is so tiny compared to the big beasts we have had!
Scott took this one this morning:
(http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq101/seemorephoto/100_0908.jpg)
Now that she is coming out of her shell, she is becoming quite the Diva!
This is the first time in our 24 years together that we have had a female dog;  it's nice to have more estrogen in the house versus testosterone!!!
I can't wait for obedience school to start, however!

You guys want to see a real dog check this out.  This is what our girls did to our Maltese for Easter.  Don't worry it washes out.  The picture sucks a little I took it with my phone.  Fluffy weighs 5 lbs and is 6 months old.

Will do. It's too bad we are not all closer - we could have a dog get together!

We are a little over 1/2 way.  PA is a very wide state! We are almost through it! 

Left our kid at home, had teenagers showing up before we even got out the door.  No phone calls from our neighbor so I'm hoping every thing is under control.

Congratulations on your new arrival!

Sorry about Abbie - I know that feeling.

We have added another chocolate lab to our family - pics forthcoming. He's sort of a "rescue" in that he has had three homes in his three years. I'm going to fix that. Less than 12 hours after we got him, he went on "walkabout" - The Mrs. found him about four hours later...

Maybe I need one of these:

Hey all,
Picked Ben up yesterday afternoon, I wanted to get him in the morning but was told Ben wouldn't stand up. That sounded strange to me for Ben. When I finally did get him I found out why, he has a full leg cast on. Acl was torn, meniscus was shredded badly. I know he's real uncomfortable when down, can't turn over on other side and it's a real chore for him to get up. I guess it's easier to deal with just laying on the one side until it gets unbearable.
I'll post a pic later.

10.5 i think if you look at the pics again you will see the same color shape on the muzzle,
the different angle makes it look a little more pale.
also if you look above what would be his left nostril,you will see what looks like a small bald
spot.
i know he said both of them got out of the van but me thinks we are lookin' at the same pup
in both pics. BUT i have been wrrrrr (mistaken) before.

My old German Shepherd Max blew out his ACL on BOTH knees over the years. The post surgery looks awful, and having him limp around is heart-breaking, to say the least. Don't worry, though...Ben will be up and about before you know it. JUST KEEP HIM FROM JUMPING!! He'll think he's better than he is and might rip his stitches and/or re-injure  himself. Max did that on his second knee surgery and he had a bit of a limp to the end of his days.

This will all be over before you know it. The only major drawback I found was that Max readily associated the vet with pain and no longer was happy to go there. :/

After getting the pictures of the wings posted on the forum, he just couldn't hold out any longer watching what I was doing.
The lab was tired from chasing the little one around, or maybe it was the other way around.  Both of them ran me out of my shoes.

Aw, HCT, those pictures of Ben just make me feel bad.  The poor guy.  I hope all is doing well for him.
Jimmy, I know the frustration of trying to keep a dog "quiet" after surgery.  Like that is possible................

Haven't posted a picture of Saffron in awhile.  She is 15 wks and growing rapidly.  I think she is twice as big as she was when we picked her up at Marc's.

With her best friend Bella :

Mrs. here.  I just HAD to post this.
Tasha was spayed last week.  Her ears began to droop again.
Needless to say, we had to re-tape her ears, and put a cone on her head to keep her from getting to her stitches.
NEEDLESS to say, the Diva was not at all happy.  I think these pictures illustrate just how "much" she wanted to do with Scott and I:

I hate when you write a post and the computer eats it >:( >:(

Jimmy - awesome looking dog kids.   

Mrs.  -  Poor Tasha,   I need to talk with the vet on timing for Saffron.   She is growing fast - she just lost some baby teeth.  How is obedience going?  We just finished round 1 of puppy obedience.  We are doing another round of puppy rather than moving up with the others because Saffron forgets how to sit when we walk in the building because she is so excited.  The instructor really mixes up the class and doesn't do just sit, down, leave it.  She does some tiny jumps, tunnels & stuff too- this is the stuff that Saffron loves.  She also teaches kayaking with your dog,  I think that we will do some kayaking lessons in the future,  we have everything but a life vest for Saffron ;D.
Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: seemore on June 07, 2009, 07:02:56 AM
Saffron will make a fine kayaker!!!  Tasha completed beginner obedience, but she did not graduate.  Another beginner class is beginning next Wednesday, so I will be taking her to that.  An intermediate class will be beginning by mid-July so I am hopeful that she will be ready to advance by then.
I think I am going to put her in agility too.  Not for competition, just for fun.  She will love the running, jumping, etc.

I'm going to do the same with Saffron.  Once the dogs get past basic obedience we can sign up for a flex program, paying for a certain number of classes.  There are many different choices which include agility.  It's nice because you aren't tied into a certain time slot every week.   Here's another thing that Saffron can do when she gets older   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3hgNuEMLOA&feature=related    her school is pretty cool ;D

Yes, last week.  He is back to his old self running around and chasing the Lab.  His mom is a boxer and they believe the father was sharpei but I am not too sure of it.  We were at petco a couple months ago and some guy came up to me and asked what the breed was as he wanted one just like it.  Boxer/Sharpei or Heinz 57 was the best I could offer.

Cesse

She's not too happy at the moment. She was just fixed, because of this guy.

Irv

He's just 9 months old, and he is full of energy. Cesse would be happy to lay in my lap all day (which makes it hard to read the forum).

Cesse and Irv are happy about the smoker too. They now get rib bones as treats.

Post by: classicrockgriller on August 25, 2009, 08:51:14 PM
A man and his dog 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 dog walking beside him 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 a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog 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.

"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "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 the way he had been going with his dog.



 After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading 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 man. "Do you have any water?"

"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in."

 

"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog.

"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 water bowl and took a long drink himself, and then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.

"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

"This is Heaven," he answered.

"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, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind."

Gee so sorry that happened to your dog. We have 4 dogs and 2 cats. They are our babies and we are sure yours is a baby as well.

Last year one of our females blew out a knee. It cost us $2,700.00 but today she runs and rules the back yard. Worth every damn dime of it.

They do have a way of healing quite quickly, and owning your heart.  Best of luck!

Thank you, everyone for the well wishes for Gabe and for sharing what happened with your beloved pets. Yes, I too paid a lot of money to save Gabe, and I would have paid whatever it took to help him.

He just had his drain out and is moving around really well. He is no longer crying and yelping so this is a good sign that he is well on the way to recovery.

Thanks, again for the well wishes and support. You guys and gals are the best.

Speaking of Boston Terriers when we were gone at a tournament this summer my daughter had one of her friends watch her Boston and lost the dog

Her name is Lucy, we miss her. We put adds in the paper, posted fliers all over the place, contacted the police, sheriff and all the vets with no luck finding her. I dont think we will ever see her again, she was so loving and fun to watch play with the other dogs and had quite an personality. We miss her allot!

Agreed...   Same class of people who dump unwanted animals out in the country.

I've got 2 rescue critters at home now that were dumped, starved half to death on the vet's farm.  The rest of the litter was probably eaten by coyotes...      I'd like to get my hands on people who do that.

As stated in a different post, I have and breed a type of dog called Alapaha Blueblood Bulldog.
This is Ericka. I co-own her with a family in town. We have a breeding planned for her in late Dec.

Haven't posted a pic of Saffron in awhile.  She's 7 months and just under 50lbs now.   Sunday was beautiful and she learned how to kayak.  She did awesome!  I was fully expected to go over at some point or to have to throw her in the water but she was pretty calm.

That was right at the beginning.  By the end she had her nose pretty much touching the water.  This was her first non-bath water experience.  She went right in the water when we got there but she's not so sure about swimming yet.  I imagine next summer she will be swimming beside me.

Bentley looks like a long nose boxer. Our Bonnie is a long nose boxer.

For those that don't know "Boxers" are a man-made breed. A mix between an English Bull Dog and a Great Dane originally. What is funny is when you see one that has the body and size of a Great Dane with the pug face of an English Bull Dog. Now you can talk about big sticky kisses all you want until one of those licks ya--instant whole face wash...thank you very much~~!  ;D

Post by: Oldman on October 09, 2009, 01:45:38 PM
Caribou,

If your Bentley is anything like our boxers he will not back down from anything. Our first boxer "Bonnie1" got into a fight with two coons that fell off of the fence into our back yard. She was sliced and diced to the tune over over 200 stitches. But those two coons ended up being very dead.

Our current "Bonnie" has no fear. Don't discount Bentley due to size. Once he hits 65 -70 pounds he will be one lean mean fighting machine.  Once he figures it out he can clear with just two steps a 4 - 5 foot fence without touching the fence. And you can take that to the bank! Plus they are very loving and gentle pets until they perceive a threat. They seem to know no pain in a fight.

Oh ya Bentley is a handsome Brindle.
Title: Re: Doggie Pix
Post by: OU812 on October 09, 2009, 03:16:42 PM
I can back up what Olds has said, my boxer was in a full blown tag team with 2 coons one night and be for i could do any thing about it she had both dead and killing them again. I can still see the scars all over her head and can feel them when you pet her. Dont worry the Boxers are very loving and have never raised a lip to any one heck my kids when they were younger use to lay on her. She is just a territorial bitch. Now she has a hard time getting up, she has a pin in her back leg from another miss hap and i think its catching up with her.

Miles is a good looking boy, cant wait till Tucker slows down a bit he has got his legs under him now and man has he become a little #ucker.  ;D

Last night when Tabatha (my daughter) was doing her home work he kept taking her pens and pencils then running to his corner to hide, to funny.


He lets us know when he needs some water by bringing his water bowl to the bathroom door and barking.

Toby has done the same here as well but his real trick is opening the doors when he wants to go out or come in (yes he can open doors that swing out or in)- to any room in the house.  Beware to lock the bathroom door or he will visit you.   :o

We were in the shop last night and Tucker started barking at the feed bucket, when I called him to me he came over for a second then ran over to the ground corn and started barking again. When I went to see what he was barking at he had stopped so now I really wanted to see what he was up to.

Thats a 5 lb coffee can in the bucket I use to feed with.

Then he had to check out the mower.

Maybe Tucker saw a bug in the corn.  We have had a lot of bugs in our house this year.  I wish the pup would quit bringing them in to play with.   :D

Tucker is able to jump up on the couch now, dont know if Blonka likes it or not.

This morning they both were still sleeping, look to the left that little dot is Tucker. He has put a little spring back in Blonka's step.

Not a dog - duh, but it is a stray, that we fed for over 5 years, but never got any closer than 3 feet to her/him (never got prego, so probably a him).  On the front porch - saw him/her sitting there next to the concrete cat and almost fell over myself getting to my camera.  This is one of my wife's favorite photos.  Actually taken over a year ago through the glass door in the front, and just found it in my files.  Unfortunately, he/she stopped coming about 3 months ago.  Although never touched him/her, she/he endeared himself/herself to us.  Always seemed to appreciate all we did for her, but always seemed to get scarred up in fights and would just sit in the window looking at us.  Miss seeing him/her sitting in the window - greeting me in the morning - actually waiting to be fed.  We called her/him - Gray.

I wish I had a good shot at it, but I didn't.   Ran to the farm store today for Science Diet, and they were getting ready for the Halloween Pet Parade. 

The local pet shelter had all their dogs there, dressed up in their Halloween best...  It was a zoo in that place. (figuratively speaking)

Tucker is like having a 2 year old (human) in the house again, first all the presents had to be put up on the hutch, then all the ornaments from the ground up to knee high were brought to us one by one. I would take him over to the tree each time and scold him, he would leave them alone till he got wound up, which dont take much, then he would dart over and snag one on his way by. Now when I came home the other night he was under the tree looking like he was in trouble, you know that look they give you when you catch them doing something they know they are not suppose to be doing. Well he was all tangled up in the lights so as I untangled him he broke free and took off but stopped as if he was on a leash, then when I crawl out from under the tree I seen this.

See the light bulb in the last pict? Hes lucky the lights weren't on or he would really be wining. He Was dam lucky it wasn't wrapped around the other end, if it was he probably wouldn't be with us anymore cause it was wound pretty dam tight. He dont come close to the tree anymore. Wounder why?

OU:

Bostons have two things going for them:
1.  you can't trust them
2.  when the break the trust, they kill you with love!
He was fortunate it didn't wind up around his neck!
I lost a sofa and love seat along with several doggie beds to my prior two Bostons - something about furniture foam/stuffing they didn't like!
The new one got caught gnawing on the baseboards!  Now, there's a big rock in front of the gnaw spot.  The only toy I found that has held up is the "kong" - everthing else lasts about 5 mintues!
Maybe Tucker is going through doggie stress when you leave the pack?

Tucker got messed up pretty bad last Fri and we had to take him to the vet. He has a fracture front leg, some bruised ribs, a big abrasion on his belly and one of his testes is pushed back inside. Poor little guy was in allot of pain over the week end but the doc gave him some pain killers or doggie downers, not sure.
He is gettin along better now and can jump up on the couch with out squealing in pain. Now that hes feelin better hes back to his ornery self. Found him last night all comfey and warm, fresh out of the dryer.
(http://i726.photobucket.com/albums/ww263/OU812_bucket/dogs/Jan07_0002.jpg)
Hes a wopping 15 lb now, the vet said he is going to be fine and check back in 2 weeks. I was out side when he got messed up and the only thing I can come up with is he must have got stepped on by a cow or horse. It was dark and I didnt here any thing or see any cars go by.

Last night I let the short hairs in the house, great house dogs a little high strung but they mellow out after a wile.

Tucker tries to keep up with them but when he does his 180 deg turn on a dime he gives off a little yelp but keeps goin.

When we let him out to go potty now he dont go far from the house anymore, wounder why?

The lady is his wife who never really worries about being home alone  ;D

Mastifs are family dogs. Don't think so? Just wait until that time comes. Mastifs remind me of Pits when it comes to protecting a family member.... they just don't let go. Kickem' bitem' beat them...they just don't turn lose. A full  Bull Mastif is not an animal to have pissed off at ya. For those that don't know a Bull can go up to 140 pounds. Given no taller than they are the only word to discribe them that comes to my mind is TANK!

Great family dogs...just make sure you knock before entering.   :o

Just wanted to share this photo of Miles from a charity fundraiser held recently at Westfest in Ottawa. A local photographer was taking 'mugshots' with all proceeds going to B.A.R.K. (Bytown Association for Rescued Kanines), a local canine rescue organization.

Miles was pretty happy looking considering he was being "booked" for stealing food!

Here's a link to a story of one of the pups Steeler had.  His name is Ike and he's doing great!

This is Leila, she's currently 10 months old.

This is back when we first got her.

Wow still adorable but has she grown.  Leila seems to have lost that innocent puppy look and replaced it with an energetic look of intelligence.

I don't think I have posted a picture of Saffron lately - we went out for a quick little paddle today

Looks like a good time Deb must have been a good conversation to get her to turn around and look backwards
