Current dog - Balin, the wonder dog. He currently is having a sabatical at a house of ill repute I am told. (he is being used as a stud)

So, how did I end up here anyway?

I don't know what option to select. smiley_headscratch  My dog stopped in for a visit four years ago. He stayed here for three years, even got hurt and the wife spent $600 on vet bills.  In the last year he only stays here one or two days a week. :(  I think he has found another home and only comes back to visit a spell.  I need an option for a part time dog. ::)
No, he is not doing what crtreedude's dog is doing, he has been "fixed".

I had to check "4 or more" since I have 8 dogs.  Goofy, Pluto, Gracie, Frank, Beavis, Happy Girl, Clover, and Silk.  They keep the coons out of my chicken house and garden, etc. :)

Goofy has a really big bark, so he is the first line of defense.  He doesn't have many teeth left, though, so the visual part of the barrier falls to Pluto.  He's part bulldog, and was bitten in the neck by a rattlesnake a few years ago.  His head swelled up so big, the skin never quite returned to its former size.  It gives him a really grumpy look, and most folks don't want to turn their back on him.  Frank, an American Bulldog, will be found wherever Linda is.  Failing that, he will be found wherever he last saw her.  Happy Girl is one of those bouncey type dogs that is always glad to see you.  She reminds me of Snoopy doing his little suppertime dance.  I brought Gracie home on horseback, after finding her in a ditch as a crippled pup.  A few weeks of vitamins and good food had her up to speed.  She looks more like a fox than a dog.  She mostly just lays about, but is Johnny on the spot if anything is going on.  Beavis was dropped off on our little road a couple of years ago, along with her brother, Knothead, who has since disappeared.  She is some sort of a hound or birddog, and helps keep the deer out of the garden.  Silk is the family coward.  She is coal black and built something like a greyhound.  She's the most nervous animal I've ever seen.  She will come up to me at feeding time, but if I extend a hand she will yelp and run away. ??? ::)  She is always the first to bark if anybody comes around.  Clover is my favorite.  She is part Great Pyrinees and part Golden Lab.  She is the one that will take a cheek off your butt while you're keeping an eye on Pluto. ;D  You wouldn't even know she was there till it was too late.  At least one ForestryForum member could attest to that. :D :D

I love dogs, but don't have one at the moment...  :-\

Best dog I ever had was Jerry, the black greyhound/whippet cross thingy, he was smart and adoreable.

After he tangoed with a car and lost, we got Lucy. She's the dumbest dog ever made, bar none. A Cavalier king charles spaniel. My Dad took a shine to her and dognapped her. So she became his dog. They were a mutual admiration society unto themselves, she's pining pretty bad now he's gone.

At the moment, no dog. The kids are only home every second weekend (yay!) and away half of each holiday (again YAY!) and whilst I'd LOVE a dog, I can't really afford one at the moment. Notwithstanding all this, we also don't have secure gates (none on one side) and live on a fairly main road.

IF I could have a dog, any dog, I'd have a blue, black or brindle Greyhound. Maybe adopt an adult ex-racing dog or such. I just adore them.

Or maybe a labrador or golden retreiver, but I'm not sure I have the energy at the moment to go through the puppy stage!!!  I'm fairly sure my 10 and 12 year old kids would love it too... 

Thankfully their Dad's got a dog (Well, his partner has, and they live together) so they see her every second weekend and get their dose of doggie play...  I'm reliably told that the dog sleeps for a couple of days after they go!

asy :D

I didn't mention, but Balin is either a beagle or a basset hound. I love hounds.



I swear - so far he is proving himself to perhaps be the first ever hyperactive hound.  :D
So, how did I end up here anyway?

Asy,

I know it's fun to have a dog because if its looks, but if you are really interested in a larger piece of property out in the boonies (farm), you can't beat a hound.  One of medium size will be loyal, generally stay around the house, understand livestock and run off wild beasts.  They will protect you till death and fight till the end.  They lack the pretty looks of the mainicured new breeds but I find them good looking on the other end of the spectrum.  Some are so ugly they are pretty.  Most will love you to death. :)

It's all those dogs of "High Breeding" that suffer so much from any little illness and either have nervous conditions or cause you nervous breakdowns.

Rosebud is the nicest hound you ever met but for two faults. She always listens to her nose. She belongs to the group "Dogs Without Borders". And we are always needing to clean under her floppy ears.





Don't let her off that leash.

My dog came home today, so I selected one.  I still have a problem, my dog just doesn't look like any of the dogs of the other members . smiley_headscratch  I guess he is just a special dog. 8)
