    When we had to put down my childhood dog was probably the saddest moment I could remember for a long time. I hadn't cried in forever and when I put him in the ground I cried for 30 straight minutes. My dad sat beside me with his arm over my shoulder. It's cruel that they only live 10-15 years when they so quickly become part of your life, but the trick is to love em to death while they're here.



    As I type this my German is curled up onto the couch next to me watching the cardinals game just stinking like a dog lol. But I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I'm not one to dress up my dog or celebrate her birthday. Today the dog park had a halloween party and this seemed too easy not to do. TP and scotch tape I already had and was super easy. Being a white dog helped out also. She hammed it up to all the people in her normal fashion.

    I like dogs way, way more than people. My Aussie Cattle dog died 10/7/2011, the Border mix is still going strong. I will get another Cattle Dog next. I love that breed (Border Collies are great too).

    Well, since this turned into a show your dog thread (nothing wrong with that!), here's our yellow rescue lab, Lexi. She's not the brightest bulb, but she just oozes love and loyalty.

    Here's a picture of my foster dog, Henry. He is a beautiful, sweet, healthy english setter. He is a hunter outdoors and a real snuggler inside.



    He is available for adoption



    I don't know what happened to the pic. Click on it, and it will expand to the full photo.

    BTW, did ya'll know that another indication of dogs evolving to live with man is that they will stare straight into your eyes and take cues from them. Wolves do not do this, and even chimps don't come close to dogs' ability to take cues from human eye expression/movement.

    Thug....Henry is estimated to be 4. He is in Baltimore. HIs jowls are hilarious. He gets the Elvis sneer on both sides!



    There is a write up and some more photos of his brother Victor at www.esrescue.org. Henry and Victor are pretty much twins except that Henry has a black patch over his right eye. Victor is in Atlanta.

    You're supposed to hang a sign around his neck that tells what he did wrong and then take his picture (dog shame). For example:

    I'll check out your link, fall in love I'm sure, and then start negotiations. Right now I'm not sure what our capacity for a second rescue is, with 3 kids and me on the road a lot, but I will PM you...thanks.



    And OMG, that pic with the humilliating sign brought a true guffaw out of me. That reminds me of one time when I was living in Cali I was walking my Golden, Marlee. She was in some really deep grass on a hillside. I wanted her to come to me so we could leave, and I saw the grass moving 20 - 30 ft away, so after a few 'Marlee, come here!'s with no dog appearence,I went marching over yelling and promptly got sprayed by a skunk, while Marlee popped out of the grass to my left. Even at that point I had to laugh. BTW, skunk spray isn't really that bad (your sensors quickly get saturated), except for your co-workers!

    haha one of my 2 pups got sprayed in our back yard a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't too bad minus the fact that we were having people over that night and it happened at 5:30 am. I quickly tossed him in the bath tub and washed him. It helped alot, but he still stunk. A few hours later I bathed him in a mixture of Hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda and Dawh Dish soap. It pretty much neutralized the scent.

    Sometimes it really is sad for the field/sporting dogs. If they are scared of gunfire or just don't hunt well, their owners will abandon them, put them down, etc. Unbelievable



    I try to remember that there are people across the country trying to find good homes for these beautiful animals. Far more good hearts than bad ones.

    Our Lexi came from a shelter in Georgia, and she looks like a lab/hound mix. She has had her canines filed down (bird dog, right?). I'm pretty sure someone bred her to be a 'super hunter', but she didn't cut the mustard, so she was abandonded. Would people do this to their child who is disabled, or doesn't score a 1800 on the SATs? I think what many people don't realize is that humans don't hold a monopoly on possessing the qualitites of love and intellect/conciousness. It's not a yes/no phenomenon. There is a continuous spectruim of love/consiousness from primitive organisms through to humans, and dogs posess a boat load of those apptitudes. It's like chucking a Down's syndrome kid out on th street because they didn't fulfill your expectations or are too much trouble. Un f*ing real.

    Here's Dexter with his baby sister. She is really fascinated with him. It's amazing to see how protective he is of her. If she cries, he'll run to to her to see what the problem is. Very gentle around her.

    There are no minuses! Dogs enrich your life and you cannot ever measure the amount of love & joy they give you.....your love for them is nothing compared to their love for you. Just please be a truly "responsible" dog owner. Dogs need three things.......exercise, discipline, & affection (in that order). Make your dog be the dog that everyone loves to be around.




    Well said !!!!!

    To put it simply, the greatest plus is when you have a dog you can always anticipate on them being happy when you get home.



    I've met my best friends at the dog park. Some people say they have a hard time going on vacation or out of town. WIth my group at the park that is never an issue. Someone is always willing to watch my dog, and I am always willing to help someone else out.



    I can say with 100% conviction that my life is better with my dog.

    My Mom has always been a dog nut... she knows almost every breed and can instanly recognize them walking on the street. She once called out a "Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever" walking down the road... I mean who knows that kind of stuff?



    Growing up, I think we have had a total of 7 dogs (obviously not all at once) and there have never been less than 3 dogs in our home at once. We have adopted 6/7 times, and I really believe this is a good route to go, but the best of our dogs (IMO) was adopted as a puppy.



    Around 3 years ago we purchased a Golden Retriever puppy and I'm convinced he is my best friend. Not only has he affected my life, but also the lives of many others. My Mom trained him flawlessly to be a therapy dog. He is pretty much bomb proof. Usually 2-3 times a week, he volunteers at a nursing him with old folks, sitting patiently by their side. The weird thing is not distracted by other dgs at all, a skill he had to learn before passing the test to become a certified therapy dog. He has won awards for being such a great companion, and has won halloween costume contests as well; furthermore, he knows a vast assortment of commands. "Sit", "lie down", "lie down on your side" are basics. If he is thirsty, he brings you a water bottle. If he needs to go outside, he rings a bell on the door. He can army crawl when told, and play dead (except he wags his tail). He heels when told, and licks food off your hand when told to be more gentle.



    Above all though, he is a companion.
