We don't have dogs, but I would like to get a Greyhound. My husband, while he likes dogs a lot, is not too keen on the idea of getting a dog while we have our cat who is a skittish little girl.

 

My friends have a Golden Retriever called Madeline (aka Maddie, Maddie-swine, Mad-dog, Puppy-dog, Maddie-Moosehead) who is an absolute darling. We dog-sit her when they travel and she is a big dog who thinks she's a lapdog smile.gif

My nearly 110 pound dane 'puppy' also thinks she is a lap dog. Every chance she gets she has to sit in someone's lap. It's funny too because she is so tall that all she has to do is turn around and plop her butt down. She likes to sit on the couch this way. Front legs on the ground, butt on couch. She is a silly girl.

Omg, she must be adorable! I love goldies biggrin.gif

My friend's grandparents have a Norwegian Mountain Dog, Sophie-she's like a mix between a dane and a pyrenees (but really fluffy, making her look fat). She's huge, standing at exactly 3 ft, 2 inches. She was bred for pulling heavy sleds through a blizzard and has boundless energy. My friend's grandpa has had Alzheimer's for a while now and grandma got Sophie as a puppy 3 years ago. It wasn't intended, but they ended up training Sophie to do certain guide dog chores in case grandpa gets himself in trouble-she also knows how to press a button on the answering machine for 911.

I've got a little stubby tailed blue heeler mix named Batman that was adopted from a local shelter in July. He's my little buddy. He thinks that, rain or shine, whatever the weather, I have to go chase him around the yard for his favorite toy chicken every morning after breakfast. He's developed the habit of wanting to be at my side whenever possible and is currently asleep next to my chair. He also barks if I catch him looking at me and ask "What?" That always means that I need to stop doing whatever I'm up to right this very minutes and play. I usually give in, too.

Wow annageckos, that sounds horrifying! I'm so glad Shorty is okay.

 

I've had a few dogs throughout my life... My first and most specialist (until now) was Bo, a mini yorkie. He was awesome. We lived at my grandparents house back then and he loved running around in the backyard. My grandpa pretended to not like him, but would then pet him when he thought no one was looking. Unfortunately, we eventually moved to a much hotter climate and the move plus the heat forced Bo into a heart attack and he died. I learned then that he had a heart defect I'd never known about.

 

Since then I've had a couple dogs, like Buddy and Mika, who I loved but was never really as close to. We ended up moving into a small apartment and had to give Mika away (she was a small poodle mix, but was very very hyper and I couldn't imagine her being happy in an apartment).

 

Then came Tasha, the dog I have now. Back in May I started dogsitting for a friend who would be out of town for the whole summer. It was supposed to be a 2-day job, until this other woman took over the dogsitting. Well, one thing led to another and somehow I ended up with Tasha for the entire time. And I completely fell in love. I brought the idea up in a very careful, dipping-foot-in-water type of way, just mentioning that I would love to have this dog forever. My friend said that would be fine with her, but that the dog was really her teen son's, and none of us thought he would agree to it. But he didn't say no right away. He thought about it. And realized that Tasha was safer here with me (their other dog has attacked Tasha multiple times). In the end, I got to keep Tasha (after paying the *three hundred dollar* Pet Deposit for the apartment, dang!). So she is now mine. And I seriously have never loved a dog this much. She is my everything. And she has helped my depression and anxiety in many ways. She is a dachshund mix, and so crazily calm... She's not hyper at all. She barks when someone is at the door, but otherwise she is amazingly well-behaved and she sleeps a lot.

I have a Lab/Rott mix (Labrottie, lol) named Nike. He's a rescue (abandoned on the highway as a puppy. Honestly, I don't understand people some days.) and we love him to death. He's 5 and a half years old, solid black with white on the tips of his front paws and on his chest. He has a saber tail, which apparently is what a natural Rott tail looks like if it weren't docked. Nike's great with the kids too, he fits in like a furry older brother to them. The only one who is not a fan of the dog is the cat, lol.

WOOF WOOF.

 

Don't have a dog but I know there nice as a pet, keeps away intruders from the houses, most likely wants to play, the problem is, most dogs are enemies to cats and if the neighbor has a cat, he/she will be angry because of the dog chasing.

I have a English x American Staffordshire bull terrier, omg, she is so adorable and a big kisser.... seriously we have to tell people at the front door to be careful or she might kiss you to death xd.png. and she has been a real help in coping in my loss of my safety dog (who was a cav). I remember when she would annoy the hell out of him. why do staffies have to eat so much (and why does autocorrect try and turn staffy into stiffy!, it got so annoying and embarrassing).

It's getting colder up where I live and it's time to pull Panzer's hoodie out of the closet. It's a cute fluffy red nylon coat with white fuzz on the hood. Thing is, I can't find it and he wants to go for a walk.

I wouldn't say most dogs are enemies to cats. I have cats and dogs and it's the cats that normal pick on the dogs. Cats and dogs can get long just fine. Sometimes dogs will chase cats, it's not always because they are enemies, but to play. Though I'm sure the cats don't see it that way. And sometimes cats will chase dogs.

Cute puppy, Natevaelle!

 

I don't have any dogs of my own as I'm always in other people's home taking care of their pets when they travel, but I have a new dog at the Thrift shop where I work. The Thrift Shop is part of the Bahamas Humane Society and we raise funds for the Shelter. Tango was one of our adoption dogs. She has settled in well to the shop yard!

I have three dogs. All mutts! One of them is clearly a golden retriever mix, my family and I sort of...uh, rescued him from another home. You see, he was always tied up with a chain in their patio in the sun, in a small, cramped space. We always felt so bad about him when we saw him, but there was hardly anything we could do because in my country the government doesn't really care about animal abuse nor do they have a system/rules to avoid it. So, one day he was tied up to an electricity post outside, and he'd been there for almost two days! And yes, with no food and no water. So, here's what my dad did: he untied him and walked him home. And that's it. He now happily lives with us. We also found out he is partially blind and has suffered abusive behavior from humans throughout his life. His name is Balto and he lives a happy life with my family and I. My other dog is the daughter of my first dog (who has passed), a lovely Basset Hound mixed with Tibetan spaniel (don't ask how that even happened, lol) and the third dog is the granddaughter of my first dog. That took a while to explain, might post some photos of my babies sometime soon.

I have a maltese pup we dubbbed wally.

He has a little white patch atop his head that we like to dye with little neon paints so he has a little neon scruff most of the time. People always compliment his hair when we go out. Haha.

Most recently we've gone pretty tame and went with a blue-ish tinge.

Okay, since I last posted a *lot* has changed. We had to give Amber back to the Humane Society because her and my other dog Tasha weren't getting along and I realized it was stupid for me to get another dog because Tasha was kind of afraid of other dogs because of attacks in her past.

 

Then Tasha died. She was the best doggie I've ever had and I miss her so, so much. The vet hospitalized her and tried to save her but she was too far gone.

 

I now have a new dog, a chihuahua named Hippie. I got him two weeks after Tasha died. He will never be Tasha, she was special, but he's a good dog and I needed a dog around. I was getting really, really depressed without one. Hippie is a sweetheart but also a terror; He's escaped four times, making me run after him for about a block and a half each time in the 100-plus degree heat. He also tore up the carpet and the tiles while we were out. Each time we left him alone, even if we tried to leave him in my room or the bathroom, he would tear up the floor. He is now confined to a crate when we have to leave. He whines about it but so far hasn't torn it up at all. Here is a picture of Hippie.

It has been a while. Lucky is six months old now. Some of her dark patches of fur lightened in color and and she is bigger and heavier than ever. Here she is, exploring our farm for the first time. It is only fitting because of her English Shepherd roots. happy.gif

 

How have your best friends been? wink.gif

I have a dog, her name is Kellu. (not a typo. Kellu, not Kelly >.>) and she's a mutt.

 

She's mainly black, with a white patch on her chest, she's pretty average in size, I'm not sure about what breeds she is, I think she may be Labrador and Alsatian (since she has the personality of a labrador, and she's not as big as an alsatian, but she has the thicker hair on her neck, and stand-up ears an Alsatian has, although I think there might be a bit of border collie in there too, which would explain the white patch. idk, and tbh, it doesn't matter. She's a lovely dog (even when she dragged me into the lake when it was -2c outside -.-)

 

She likes to sit on my lap, even though she's a little big to do so xd.png, If I'm sat in bed, she often lays across my legs. She's very affectionate, and luckily, she also gets along with my 2 cats, too. happy.gif

A few weeks ago we got a new puppy. Her name is Pip!

 

Her mother was dumped at a friend's house, and she had puppies under their shed. They were able to catch the puppies, but last I have heard, they still haven't been able to catch the mom. She is completely wild.

 

This was her when we first got her(sorry for the bad quality):
