"Show us your".... Dog!

With currently searching for a new mutt for the family, I thought I would steal a thread from another forum that I'm on.

So if you've got one of mans best friends, lets see if it resembles you :wink:

John, I love your forum, very informative.
Here is my little Sukey.
She is our second pug.
If you want a dog that is so ugly it's cute, who is incredibly loyal, good with kids, and clings like Velcro, get a pug.
We had a fawn one for 9 wonderful years, now we have a black one. They both shed, but the black hair is less noticeable.
They also have small poop that is easy to clean up. hahaha
Love....Jill

Hi Lynn

They are a Weimaraner - English Springer spaniel cross…so they bounce around all over the place but have a lovely temperament

wish i had some pictures of my dogs on my PC but i don't... have one in a picture frame next to me on my desk and loads at my parents house... just none to share :-?

I had three beagles... but all have since passed. loved them to bits and would buy another in a second, but have decided against it.

they were called:

Buddie
Ben
Bruno

all brothers... I had Bruno the longest. i argue it was 16 years but my dad recons 15... very long time for him to live i know. in the end i had to have him put down which i never want to go through again. i took him to the vet thinking he was sick but got told his kidneys etc had packed in on him and that was that. a quick injection while he was in my arms as i sat whispering in his ear apologising to him... and that was that. wouldn't wish it on anyone...

the picture i attached isn't Bruno, but found on Google and looks remarkably like him in his prime. Ben was slightly different as he had darker markings whilst Buddie was only light tan and white...

This is Jess, 4 years old at the end of the month. Usual pose is with a stick, ball or frizbee. Today she worked for her keep for the first time by helping to round up the sheep ready for shearing. Not sure she knew what she was meant to be doing but she went where we told her and it worked! :-)

That's one lovely looking dog...are they as much of a handful as the books would have you believe (males dominating other dogs and not being able to let them of the lead when on walks)?

Only interested because I was talked out of buying a Malamute by a friend who has kept dogs a lot longer than me.

They can be quite a challenge if you are not prepared for them. You can socialise the pants of off of them when they are puppies, and they can be angels with other dogs. Then they hit the teenager stage and everything you ever taught them goes out the window and you start again! :roll:

Loads of debates about walking sled dogs off lead, some say you can, some say you cant. We never let ours off because he has a high prey drive and in certain situations, VERY selective hearing! They need a lot of stimulation, both mental and physical, like all working dogs. When they dont get it they make up their own entertainment!

We work our lad in the winter and show in the summer, so he is always doing something.

Problem is, they are adorable balls of fluff as puppies, but very quickly turn into 9 stone machines that want nothing more than to run and pull. So many of them end up in rescue because people dont realise what they are
letting themselves in for. Same with a lot of large breeds. Saying that, if you put the work into them, they are fantastic animals. He never ceases to bring a smile to your face with his antics :D

Thanks for that Adrian; we did over 6 month research before we decided which type of dog we could give a good home to.

The funny thing is the reason we found our dogs was because the lady we got them from breeds Alaskan Malamute, the mother of our dogs was her dog and the sire was her daughter’s Springer spaniel.

The only thing I didn’t enjoy about our research was meeting some of the breeders and their idea of looking after their dogs, we ended up going via recommendations of the Kennel Club but even some of their members left me feeling uncomfortable about the animals left in their charge.

Over thirty dogs' names and only one over two syllables long (well done Richard - Branigan).

Marcella!

So 'Clemartil Christmas Present' (Dan's daft pedigree name)(not chosen/registered by us, of course) is no good then I suppose...

I can't really see (hear) me in the middle of the field behind my house yelling 'Clemartil Christmas Present! Heel!'. Apart from the funny looks, he'd be gone before I got to the fourth syllable.

My son Isaac really wanted to name our dog Fluffy but I simply had to put my foot down. :o

Some Welsh folk have a habit of making words longer with the addition of '-a' on the end when annoyed or shouting.

i.e.

Fluffy-a

Fluffier? Who calls a dog fluffier? That's what they'd all be asking themselves.

That's mine exactly. He's a border collie (see a few of those here) mix, but mixed with what I don't know - staffordshire? boxer? great dane?

He's never been allowed off leash when he wasn't confined in some way - if he sees a squirrel or a cat, it's all over - he would be gone before I could begin to react - it's so fast I don't think he actually consciously realizes it before he's in motion. Letting him off leash would get him killed.

His border collie blood makes him a tremendous runner, but he had a case of hip dysplasia that was actually showing up by the time he was 6 months old & caused his hip to actually dislocate by the time he was 2. They told me he would need a double hip replacement - that was 9 years ago, and vitamin/nutritional supplementation, moderate exercise and keeping his weight down have kept him going strong as long as he doesn't run too much. It saddens me he can't run more.

Peter, Lynn - I love what I can see of your house. I've had rooms in 2 different houses painted precisely that color.

Kimberley,

Your dogs look like the australian koolie, bred in australia for sheep and cattle work.

Not to be confused with the german koolie.

Not a lot of info on them though. All I could find was this. The wife and I went to some sheepdog trials a few years ago, and the Koolie blitzed them on the day. Lovely dog, love working though.

http://www.burkesbackyard.com.au/2000/a ... eds?p=1603

A Koolie is often described as looking like a cross between a rough Collie and a border Collie

My friends had 2 chows. Lovely looking dogs as you say but really really stubborn/stupid.

We babysat their puppy on one occasion, most frustrating day I can remember...

... no good for our hot summers here either. I think from memory, one died from heat exhaustion last summer....

End of the day, you have to be really dedicated to be a chow owner....

Hi Karen

As you can see from my post at the top I am a huge lover of Rottweilers and miss mine so much, they are one of the most intelligent and loving dogs you can have, it was the saddest day in my life so far when I gave them up even though they went to a millionaires house on the beach :wink:

the house they went to live at, that's his garden that leads directly on to the sand, I wish I could live there.

and he is English who owns the house, went to watch the rugby world cup and loved it in SA so he never left :o

the house they went to live at, that's his garden that leads directly on to the sand, I wish I could live there.

and he is English who owns the house, went to watch the rugby world cup and loved it in SA so he never left :o


ah well i'm sure they are having a ball I agree they are great, shame they have such a bad name, its the owners not the dogs, mine are as daft as, Rocky barks at the gate but thats natural he's just being territorial, the other 2 are puppies so still playing around but when you come in my house they'll smother you (in a nice way of course) god my dogs would love that pool and me more it looks great there

This is Gemma, and true to form, being female, she's costing a fortune :lol1:

She is an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog x . Gorgeous dog, and very intelligent. We got her for company for our older dog.

We've had her about 3 weeks but she had blood clots develop on her ears, so we had to get them surgically removed (the clots - not the ears). She's not happy about the collar tho.

Adrian your Malumute looks superb, I love any kind of snow dogs!

We got "Jack" 3 months ago now, he's a Husky / German Shepherd cross and like you say are fantastic puppies but are hard work - it means getting up an hour early to take him for a nice morning run but its keep me fit also.

This is Jack aged 4 months... he's going to be BIG boy based on the size of his paws

Thanks Nick :D

Had a scare with the Muffster last week. Has a habit of eating socks :( Having hid them up for the past few months she found a couple without us knowing. Sicked up one, had to have the other removed by surgery!!!

Jack looks lovely! Its a pain waiting for them to grow into their ears! lol. Just be careful how much you exercise him when he is young. Mallys can suffer from displacia and if my memory serves me right so do Sheperds.

I know what you mean about the keeping fit. My boy does around 4 to 5 miles a day on the bike. Trouble is, he don't care if its freezing cold or p-ing down with rain! :D :D

Haha they do look a bit "dumbo-ish" at the moment don't they.

Sorry to hear that but glads he's ok, Jacks the same will eat anything and everything left lying around.

I have a habit of being a tad over enthusiastic, when I say an hour running its probably more realistically a half hour crawl :-) I read on a website to make sure you don't over exercise them as puppies as it can cause issues later on.

- What a superb post! I've certainly found it such a social thing having a dog, everyone wants to stop and have a chat who you would normally just walk right passed

dog and daughter

This is my daughter and our new lab - although they both are a bit bigger now. My daughter loves dressing "Poppy" up in her clothes, so I often come home and find I have to undress the dog before I take her for a walk. If my daughter wants to come too its not so easy.

You are not wrong.

My dad had a Maltese, and took her to the post office to get the mail every morning. Dad called her his 'chick magnet'.

Women seemed to come out of the woodwork to pat the dog and talk to my dad about his 'gorgeous puppy'. She was a miniature Maltese so looked like a puppy, when she was actually 12 years old

Dad is in his 70's and most of the women were in their 20's :lol1: :lol1: Sadly the dog died earlier this year, and getting the mail has not been the same since for my dad.

That is an especially cool photo.
The dog must have been quite well-behaved to stay still during the long exposure times cameras required back then.
Are those real pressed flowers?
Neato.

The Victorians were very fond of stuffing dead animals - a practice known as Taxidermy.

This may well explain the dogs ability to keep still for the length of time required for the cameras exposure :-?

No, the dog looks too perky to be stuffed with sawdust.

Ever looked into memento mori photography from back then?
I have seen pix of poor dogs who have ceased to be.
Fallen off the mortal coil, etc.

This picture is one of a load from my grandmas photo album, there were a load of pictures in it from the 1930's but behind all of those were these old pictures.

I have my own lil' dog that comes with me on some jobs....

her names Kim. She's a Bedlington Terrier x Jack Russell :cool:

As she is changing so fast, thought I would update my Muffster picture! lol

Have to excuse the pink hoodie! It was not because she was cold either. Little cow ate a couple of socks a couple of weeks back, the hoodie was keeping the 10 inch row of stitches clean :cry:

These were taken whilst they were on their stake outs. 120 teams in total staked out over two days was certainly an eye opener for the locals! Bit noisy too, as you can see, they do like a bit of karaoke :D :D

Well, after reading all these posts about the enjoyment and fulfillment members get from their dogs, I thought I should have one.

I bought this on eBay. The owner couldn't tell me what breed it was, and it doesn't look like any of the other posted pictures.

Do you think I've been conned? :D

No kidding. Honest :D

The name he was given at birth is Tom Thumb. Not very original, but I'm not sure I want to change it.

The photo was taken at two weeks old, and now he is ten weeks. I'll take a new piccy this weekend.

Well, this is what he looks like today.

Looking a bit rough because he's losing his baby fluff, so I'm told. Another week or so and we should know what colour he's really going to be.

For some reason I thought I had posted a pic of our late dear ole Maltese Poodle Misha. She was 16 when she went to the kennel in the sky. I still called her "puppy" even though she was an old maid. As Shane said....a chick magnet! Allways glad to see you even if you had only been out for 10 mins.
I am not a dog lover myself but long story short......she stole my heart.
R.I.P. my sweetie.

This is my 2 with their cousin. Freya(13 today) and Indy(7).
They are both weimaraners. We were told this breed has sensitive stomachs and were fussy about what they ate. Boll**ks. We have yet to find ANY stuff they won't eat!

Peter that is weird because although she is on her own in the picture there were 3 in the litter.
That photo was taken at 8 days old so it will be a few weeks before I will be able to collect her.

Why not save a fortune (by refusing delivery in a few weeks time) in upkeep, food, and vets bills and just get it put down now instead of in 12 years time after you've forked out a fortune pandering to the brute :-?

Thanks Phill, I knew I could rely on your support :wink: Good job she is only 8 days old and unable to read this as I am sure she would be heartbroken.

Harry, sorry but I can't call her bullseye, for one thing she is not the right breed and secondly she has a name already and if that changes it will be because my Daughter wants a different name.

Lettuce Steve! And tomatoes. They are the only 2 things our Weimeraner won't eat :-?
I shall have to get a decent photo of our 2 dogs.
Lovely photo Steve, The bigger one is the spit of my Macey, and the younger looks like her puppies (now nearly 6 years old). May be from same line...
Freya looks in excellent health for her age!

Lovely puppy Martin, ignore Phil, he doesn't mean it really!

Hi Lorraine
Nope they like both of those. We've even had to hide the fruitbowl because they empty it faster than we can fill it!
Freya is in good nick for her age, but she has slowed down the last couple of months. (not a bad thing)

By no means great photos, but we went to 'adopt' Kim today.

Little rescue beagle / jack russell cross.

Couple of photos taken on a lame phone camera.

Will be sure to post some better ones at some point.

Picking her up on Wednesday as she's in to the vet on Monday to be spayed & chipped.

Think she's going to be a real sweetie.
