Life of a dog..............

Here's my baby retrieving her favorite ball today. I enjoy going on these outings about as much as playing golf. Well almost.

Poor baby has surgery Wednesday to remove several cyst/tumors. Hopefully not cancer. Only one concerns the vet. Oh well, just got to let the vet do her thing.

Makes me miss my old Doberman . Not a harmful bone in his body. Darn dog would play and play and play. He would throw the Frisbee at you when he wanted to play. Which was basically 24/7

Cool! I love dog shows. Here are my babies.

The black dog is really pretty in real life but just shows up as a black blob in pictures.

You guys are killing me. Lost Sophie the Doberman a little over a year ago. Haven't replace her (yet) with all the travel we're doing, but I miss having a dog something awful.

Give your guys an extra scratch behind th ears for me.

Scruffy followed us on a walk. He was all matted. He spent the nite and I took him to the Animal Shelter the next day. He was a well mannered dog. They would only hold him two weeks and I put up signs in the neighborhood and listed him on petfinders. I was sure there was a little old lady on vacation or hospitalized but when no one claimed him after two weeks I brought him home thinking I'd find his owner.

The animal shelter says he's a poodle mix. He's a great dog but can mountain goat jump up on the counter and can unscrew a peanut butter jar.

Dawg52, I hope your dog is OK. She is a beautiful girl and so lucky to be sharing her life with someone who loves her.

Boru

My Airedale, Boru, is such a handsome fellow. And tolerant of the things my DW does to him too.


Playful too. He doesn't really care if he gets the ball or not, as long as another dog has the other end so he can harass him and play tug.

Dawg. I hope your baby is ok. That's the one thing I hate about having pets the most... they get older so much faster than we do.

Bandit. He's probably 7 and a half now. We've had him for 7 years. We think he's boxer, american pit bull terrier, and maybe some beagle or hound. He's strong, fast, and energetic... even now, people ask me how old my puppy is and then tell me that he'll slow down when he gets older.

Personally, I just love these dog/cat/pet photos you guys put up on various posts! If I ever figure out how to do it, I'll post our miniature spoiled brat...I mean poodle.

My dog has really grown up fast! Seems like yesterday she was still a puppy that we just brought home from the animal shelter! She's about 8 months old now and what a difference! And she loves jumping around in the water, no matter how cold it is.

I love your dog!

I wish I could find someone just like you for all the animals at the shelter where I volunteer.
