  1. ... frozen poop tossing! He picks up frozen poop and tosses it up in the air and chases after it, and keeps on doing it. It's just hysterical! He acts almost like a cat tossing and chasing it all over. What a knucklehead!
  2. He is SOOOO adorable! I hope you can keep him (at least for a while) and give him a proper start to his life!
  3. [quote name='BuddysMom']Gonna get that wasally wabbit![/quote] That one would pretty much apply to all three of mine, but it would be the wascally squirrel.
  4. All of my dogs (especially Maya) are big-time play growlers. If a non-dog person heard my dogs playing in the yard they would probably think they were fighting by all the play growling. When I first got Maya, the shelter said that she was food aggressive. So she would growl if I would try to take her food away. Now if I have to take her bowl away before she's done (to put something else in, or whatever), I make her sit and she'll let me take it without growling (but she gives me a dirty look). But no, none of my dogs growl at me. That's just not allowed in my house.
  5. I only have one dog bed (which hardly ever gets used). My kids have a choice of a futon, 2 sofas, 2 love seats and 4 recliners (and the floor) to sleep on.
  6. They're even worse with doorbells on t.v. Jackie is the only non-retard. She just stays where she is. She knows better. :wink:
  7. "An Affair to Remember" is on t.v., and Cary Grant just knocked on Deborah Kerr's door and Maya and Pooh Bear went running upstairs and to the front door, barking like crazy. What a bunch of retards. Don't they know that Cary Grant isn't alive any more?
  8. I don't like ear cropping or tail docking (and never will), but that's just my preference. But I don't think it's something that should be regulated either. I think it should be up to the individual. Like DF said, there are far more important animal issues that need to be dealt with.
  9. We have a new graphics artist in our midst! NOT! LOL!
  10. Nope, mine look nothing like your pupper!
  11. Court, thank Dog your dogs let you know! I'm glad your son is going to be okay. Dogs are SOOO perceptive. Just ask Kat about her Sheltie roomie!
  12. I'm so sorry you lost your babies. They were both so beautiful. Cherish their memories.
  13. It was Internet dating for all three of mine. I moved back home to take care of my dad when he was dying of cancer. He had always been a huge dog lover (we always had dogs in our family growing up), and it's a big house with a big fenced yard. So I started looking on Petfinder.com for a Golden Retriever. I saw Jackie's picture and immediately fell in love. They listed her as a 1-1/2 year old Golden mix (maybe with German Shepherd and Collie). She had been rescued from the pound so there was no background on her. My dad, brother and I went to meet Jackie and we all fell in love. They were calling her Ashley, but that name just didn't do it for any of us. So I named her Jackie, after my last Golden named Crackerjack. As depressed as my dad was at the end, Jackie made him laugh out loud just by being a goofy dog. She helped my dad at the end, and she helped me get through losing him. Here's Jackie's Petfinder.com picture: [img]http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/Pegskids/firstpic.jpg[/img] Then I decided Jackie needed another dog for company, so I started looking at Petfinder.com again and found Maya, a 1-1/2 year old Golden/Husky mix who was an owner-surrender. I took Jackie to meet her at her foster home and they hit it off right from the start. So six months after I adopted Jackie, Maya joined our family. Here's Maya's Petfinder.com picture: [img]http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/Pegskids/Maya-firstpic.jpg[/img] I always check out Petfinder.com (it's like an addiction for me; I can't stop!). For about six months I had seen an adorable mini-Jackie named Pooh Bear on the website for the shelter I had adopted Jackie and Maya from. He would be off the site for a while and then he would be back. Every time I saw him my heart just melted. After he showed up there for about the 4th time, I decided he was meant to be mine. So I took Jackie and Maya over to meet Pooh Bear at his foster home and they all got along famously. Pooh Bear was even grooming their ears while we were there. The next day I went to pick up Pooh Bear and take him home. He was SOOOOO excited when he saw me come to get him! The first day home he started limping and it was discovered that he had hip dysplasia. So a month after I adopted him, he had FHO surgery. He's made a complete recovery and is a happy, healthy, active boy. I can't find Pooh Bear's Petfinder.com picture, but here's one of the first pictures I took of him.

  14. Good post TDG! I agree that there's no reason for docking/cropping in this day and age. And I think the Boxers with tails look awesome!
  15. I need that after I get laughing too hard! :oops:
  16. I saw that at Petsmart and was wondering if it really worked. I guess now we know!
  17. I live in Minnesota, which is big-time hunting country, and I've never heard of a dog mangling his tail while hunting. I've heard people talk about that on here before, but it sounds pretty far-fetched to me.
  18. This is one of those debates where neither side is probably going to change their opinion. I don't believe in docking or cropping at all and won't change my opinion about it, and I'm sure the people on the other side of the fence won't change their opinion.
  19. I think cropping of tails and ears is barbaric and am totally against it. I think EVERY breed of dog looks better in its natural state. Cropped ears just don't look natural.
  20. I can't think of one good reason to breed a mutt. But I can think of a million reasons to adopt one from a shelter.
  21. I have snoopy (yet nice) neighbors, so that wouldn't be likely to happen. but... if I had a gun (I've never even shot a gun by the way), I would shoot out the tires and call the cops.
  22. It's called "Designer Dog Disasters." When I first brought up the site I thought it was from a designer breed person too, but she hates it as much as we do!
