Here is a thread to post our four legged friend pics. I'll start with our rescue (right off the highway) "Keeper". Because of a traumatic childhood before we rescued her she has developed a bit of a drinking problem. We really have to watch our drinks around her.

We've always had 3 golden retrievers at a time for at least the last 20 years. They have uniformly been great dogs.

http://www.pbase.com/hmac/image/27558649.jpg

Mostly they've all lived healthy to 13-14 years old, but we did have Sassy (http://www.mccollister.info/sassy/sassy.htm), who died at 9 from a tumor of the spleen.

All great looking dogs (well - almost all - that one just freaks me out).

We have the purple Dyson as well. Wife likes it so much, she totes it every weekend to our trailer instead of using the Dirt Devil bagless we keep there.

However, watch the hose. We had the hose on ours where it connects to the slider on the handle come off. I had to dis-assemble, cut it clean, sand it down and re-glue.

That my friend is a mutt from the rescue. He is part lab, part austrailian shepard, part beagle and some other stuff I am not sure of. He acts and looks like a silver black lab bit he has a black stripe down his back like a ridgeback so who the heck knows. He is 6 pounds in that picture. He weighs 49 pounds as of Friday when I had him on the scale with me. That 300# scale is not going to be of much help in another month or two.

Lost mine to cancer in 2001. Learned after the fact that Goldens have about a 1 in 4 chance. Don't know how accurate that statistic is though.

We've had 7 Golden Retrievers. I think there is increased tendency toward cancers in that breed, with about a 1 in 8 chance of lymphosarcoma and about a 1 in 5 chance of hemangiosarcoma. All 7 of our dogs have lived to 13-14 with no cancers except for Sassy's hemangiosarcoma, the saga of which I detailed in the link above. Only one of those has had any other problem - Ritz had bilateral hip dysplasia which the vet discovered when she was a pup. Because he found it early, we were able to get the hips fixed early ($3000 worth at the University of Minnesota) and I consider that operative treatment to have been an absolute success. She's 8 years old now and has no sign of arthritis or any other mobility problems. Illness in dogs can get spendy - Sassy's operation for her hemangiosarcoma cost me $2200, even after splitting the surgeon's fee with the vet.

Maggie's lymphosarcoma ultimately ran us around the same moneywise. I wouldn't wish the experience of her last days on anyone. Enough time has now past now that I am able to focus on the good times. What a dog!

This is Weezer, Weasel and me. Weezer is my niece, she is 5 months old in the picture. Her real name is Eloise, but I like Weezer. Weasel is the min-pin on my lap. Weasel belongs to Eloise's mommy and daddy. He thinks and acts like a big dog, lots of personality. On Easter last year, we were all outside on the deck and heard a loud crash from inside the house. I went in to see what had happened. I found Weasel on top of a pan of brownies. He was eating the brownies on the table and pushing the pan as he was eating and finally it fell off the table (crash). When I picked him up off the brownies he was snapping at me, a little pissed because he couldn't finish. At the time he probably thought it was a great idea, about 5 minutes later was another story. He was so full you could see the corners of the brownies sticking out of his stomach!!!

We had that operation (bilateral hip osteotomy) done while she was just a pup - fortunately she's been solid ever since. Even at age 9, you should see her run with the other two dogs. My wife made a little videotape of her romping around last year and sent it to the orthopedic vet down at the University with a letter of thanks.

IMHO, the diagnosis and treatment of such issues is beyond the capabilities of most local veterinarians. I would seek another opinion, preferably from your closest College of Veterinary Medicine. Most such institutions have vets who specialize in orthopedics.

I agree with you Bigmac. We have seen a couple vets for this. We finally took him a friend that graduated from UC Davis and has her own practice in Sacramento. We knew she would tell us the truth, weather we wanted to hear it or not.
When the time comes that Cooper can not get around or is a ton of pain and the meds are not doing their job we will take him to UC Davis to get the job done.

Here is Maddie. She is a mutt that we got through Critter Rescue when she was 10 weeks old. She just turned 2 on November 1st. As far as we can tell she is part lab part husky and totally spoiled:D. If she didn't shed as much as she does we would take her on the boat with us......she loves my parent's pontoon boat. Last year we took her out in our old Sportstar closed bow. We idled into a boat launch with no dock and I crawled over the windshield and sat on the nose of the boat. When I hopped in the water she jumped over the windshield and hit the fresh wax job. All four legs went into a different direction and she hit the water. What a sight to see:D

Well it has been about 3 months now that I have not had a dog at home,
And it has not been the same; I miss having one at home, I just got back from
The Orange County Pound today, wow that have a lot of dogs… sad
I have had huskies for the last 14 years very good dogs, but the hair I think I am over it, so I was looking for a German shepherd

What should be the next REXDOG :confused: I would like keep it on the big size 65lbs+
Good with kids, indoor/outdoor dog, that likes to work on cars, and go out
On the boat!!!!!!!

Have you ever considered a boxer? I have had 3 of them and they are awesome dogs for a family (one of the best IMO). They range from 60-90 lbs on average. They are gentle and protective around kids and very loyal to their owners. They shed very little and are very clean dogs except for the little bit of drool when they get done drinking water. My old dog would sit and watch me polish my Harley and work on my truck when he got a little older. They can be very hyper when young though.(what dogs arent?) Poor little guy would go into depression and lose weight when the military would ship me out, then back to normal when I got home. You cant go wrong with a boxer.

Sorry if this sounds like a sales pitch.(I am not a breeder) I just think that they are a wonderful breed and everyone should experience owning one.

I vote Rottweiler, we have had three. All very loyal dogs, the biggest danger to kids is they will knock them over. It is always a good idea to teach kids safety rules about dogs anyways, no matter which breed. The late Czar loved the water but our girls never did.

A couple of things to remember: It is never a good idea to get a dog that is higher energy than you, and Jacks are VERY high energy. Dogs that cannot discharge their energy properly are more likely to develop behavior problems. Bad behaviour does not come from breed, but from lack of exercise (more common with high energy dogs because they need more exercise) and from lack of discipline. A dog that has a way to spend energy (playing in the yard is not enough) and has to follow rules will be a joy.

Keep in mind selective breeding can escalate chance of congenital problems such as hip displasia in German Shepherds and shoulder problems with Rotties. This is not saying it is going to happen, but because of development issues and genetics they are more common to each breed. Sometimes getting a mutt can decrease later vet bills.

I agree that a rescue will always have something special about them. Even older dogs if treated properly will adjust to a new home in just a couple days to a week. So if you want a lax dog maybe rescue older???

That is so great. We work with a rescue group for Chow Chows, and anyone over the age of 3 is considered "old". However, they seem to be the best behaved and happiest in a new home.

You bet. Labs are tremendous dogs to have. Very loyal and protective when they know things are not right. When my lab barks, get up and look! She (Hershey) prevented someone from breaking into our home at 12:30 am when we where home. She's getting old, she will be 10 years old in march. I hope she lives to be 20+.

The coat stays pretty shiney until it's shed time and boy what a mess!

Great picture. My lab is 9mos old. I've had him pheasant and duck huntin since August. We've got 20+ pheasants in the bag at a local game farm and a handful of wild ones, too. He's probably had 2-3 dozen ducks over him this fall, too....been fortunate that my buddies have left their dogs home occasionally so that he can get some good duck retrieves. He met his 1st downed and very pissed off Canada goose 2 weekends ago.....he didn't back down :D

You're right JohnnyB!

It is beautiful table Milk!

She was just enjoying reading this WHOLE thread!

I've never seen another table like it....
it was in Grandma's house and I don't know the history/age of it.
it's got pretty intricate carvings and the carvings were left in rough shape, not sanded/polished.
something odd about it,the whole table probably weighs less that 15 pounds..... very light wood

I'll create a thread soon with pics in order to keep this one on topic;)

there's a lady near me that's got 3 male registered English Bulldog puppies for $600.00 each,

fromthe spencer thread. I'm thinking this is a pretty good deal...

no?
yes?

what are their inherited traits?
poor breathing's a given.

but what about hips, and such?

I took this picture of my brother-in-law's dog on skis a couple years ago. Rick posted it a long time ago, but I thought I would put it on this thread because it's a fun picture. Riley gets very excited when he gets to go out in the boat. He loves when it's his turn to ski.

Here is my Lab 'Keisha' She will be 7 in February. Best dog ever. Kids love her to death. Loves the snow & water. When she was younger I taught her to dive to get things off of the bottom of the lake. I have seen her 3-4ft underwater getting sticks off of the bottom, always brings a laugh from anyone around to see it.

I have pretty much given up on the search though. I have had some horrible luck with dogs. Maybe I am just not meant to be a dog owner. Its pretty sad time around my house. My wife and daughter are a wreck. As much as I love dogs this was my last one.

The day after I posted this I woke up in the morning to go to work and he was sleeping by the front door of the house. After 5 days on his own he made it home. My biggest fear was that he was hit by a car but he was made it home in one piece.:) I hope it scared him bad enough that he doesnt do it again. We are glad to have our little buddy back.

Congrats! Pretty funny how it works out. We would leave to go out sometimes and accidently leave the side gate open, come home and our dog would be hanging out in the driveway waiting for us!

Glad he made it home. Dogs do some crazy things.

When my male GSP was a puppy (about 6 months) I took him out hunting with me in the desert. I just took him out to let him run. Well long story short he ended up getting lost. I spent hours looking for him but it was starting to get dark and I had to get home. So with a heavy heart I had to go and leave him out in the middle of the desert to fend for himself overnight with the coyotes etc. As I was leaving you could hear the coyotes barking.

Got up the next morning as the sun was coming up and drove the hour or so from the house to where I had left him. Driving the truck slowly along the dirt road I look in the rearview mirror and see the pup plodding along behind the road. It was all he could do to jump in when I opened the door to let him in. He was all scratched up from cactus and filthy. He slept for 2 days straight. I can imagine that that was a long scary sleepless night for him.

This one busted out the front door about 10 days after we rescued her. I chased, but it was dark. My wife came outside and asked where she was. I just kind of gave her a dumb look because the dog runs about 50 mph!!
A few minutes later she came running back. Amazing because she couldn't have really know where she was!
