Tom,

I'd NEVER choose a dog on it's looks as such. I like Greyhounds coz they are friendly lovely dogs who tend to lie about and snooze all day (suits my personality :D) Also the colour is just the colours I like, I'd take whichever one was friendliest at the time.

Some of the nicest dogs I've known have been butt ugly, so ugly they were gorgeous.

asy :D

I love hounds, but I understand the dogs without borders comment. Your average hound puts it nose to the ground, and then, can never be found!

We had a hound named Candy that when ever she would get out would visit the local police station - who would feed her dog biscuits - and fine me 15 bucks! I figured she probably ate that much in dog biscuits, being a chow hound too.

So, how did I end up here anyway?

Because of the dog tracks and racing greyhoud breeding going on in Florida, Greyhounds are a dime a dozen.  If they can't win, they are disposed of .  Several organizations have been started, trying to find adoption homes for those dogs that can't race.   You hear from them once in a while.  They will get a lot of press and then they disappear.

Tom, I agree about the "high-breeding", which is why I prefer mutts so much.  I was so happy to finally have a dog that doesn't need to be tied to whenever she's outside.  First dog we ever had when I was little was a beagle/terrier mix.  The first chance she got to slip out the door, she'd be gone for at least a day....we'd find her the next morning in the bushes out front, hardly able to lift her head she was so tired  :D  And STINK  ::)

Maya sticks around pretty good, but she knows where the neighbor's sheep are, so I gotta keep an eye on her.  Any sign of a critter and she is GONE, but always returns shortly.  I was thinking I could post a picture of her that I have in my gallery, but...  ::)  :D

Yeah, that's my baby  :)  I was going to post one of those pics, but I figured just replying to this thread would post one for me with my avatar  :D

Notice those long legs of hers.  She's tall enough to rest her chin on the dinner table...SHE thinks that's pretty cool, and will sneak a lick of your plate if you're not careful  :D

We have border collies at both fincas (or some mix), I will have to get a picture of La Gata (that is "The Cat" - female). She is a cross and is the first calico dog I have every seen. Super smart and very well behaved.

Balin on the other hand is nuts - but very funny. Pretty smart, but not as smart as La Gata.

So, how did I end up here anyway?

We've got a very small American Eskimo named Babe. Don't have kids, she's it.

But last weekendthis "dog" showed up on our property and seems to have set up camp for a bit.





But she can't possibly be a wolf because "wolves don't exist here."

Right. I'm not the only one who's seen them 'round here.

She's a beautiful creature.

That's exactly what my wife said about the stray cat that hangs around the place.   The way I have it figured, that cat is smart and has decided that he wants to live here.  Getting on my wife's good side is the way in the door.

Yep, she said last night, "I need to think of a name for that cat".  :D

Have you been thinking of a name for the dog yet?  :)

Well, since this is either really a wolf or a wolf-hybrid, it will not be coming in our door. That's not healty for the dog or for us. We think she has pups there. She's been in the same spot for at least four days.

I've been calling her Gray Ghost since technically she isn't real. But her howl is.  :o I go up to the site every day and check in on her, take some pictures and movies. I have not recorded her howl because I didn't think to do video the only day she was howling (when the neighbors' dogs were harassing her). She's just a creature to respect and we are happy to share the open space with her. I'm worried, a bit, about the Alpacas and chickens up the road... but that's their concern.

I'd be happy to take suggestions. What'd your wife name the cat?

My wife's "new" cat is named TOC. (The Other Cat)  It'll take a little time to see if it sticks.

The Gray Ghost, eh?     Yep, you're well on the way.  :D

There's lots of Wolf Hybrids that get turned loose, apparently.  We have some around here.  I sawed for family a couple of years ago that were proud of having two full-blooded wolves as pets.   I'm not so sure I would want one in my house.  They get a lot bigger than most people think.  We aren't in an area where they are naturally common.  I always pictured a wolf as being the size of a medium sized dog.  Whoa!   Wrong!   These were bigger than a German Police Dog.

Nothing to do with Dogs - but speaking of wild things - it is highly likely I will end up with an Ocelot as a friend in the new place. They are very curious and not particularly afraid of people.  I don't want them as a pet, but man are they pretty.

I am not sure Balin likes this idea. An Ocelot can do serious damage to a dog!

Here is a little dog picking advice that worked for us.

Our family went to the local Humane Society. My wife and stepson went straight for the pups doing circles in their cages. I started looking for the most mellow puppy I could find because I knew my wife wanted an inside dog. I found this sleepish little mutt that is sized and darts like a terrier, but with golden lab coloring. I got my stepdaughter over to look at it and she agreed it was a very cute pup. A little more negotiating and this friendly and docile mutt named Rosie was going home with us. After six years, Rosie's only concern these days is our 3 year old son chasing her around.

I found out later that the reason Rosie was so sleepish in her cage was that she had been very recently fixed. That will do it to anybody!

Wolves are not pets. They are pack animals but they have no alegience to humans - generally they are scared of them. And they make lousy guard dogs because, if they are willing to stay with you, they think you're the alpha and would let the guarding to you. I don't envy you having to have been around them. Wolves also should not be fed dog food, only raw meet. Otherwise it messes with their systems.

Yep. They are big. This on is probably a large female. Without tail she's almost 4' long. I'd bet she weighs in around 80 to 90 lbs. I haven't seen her stand, but I've seen her paws. Yes, they are as big as the neighbor's St. Bernard's paws.

On the other hand, my real dog is 13lbs. I just bought a 20lb bag of dog food for her which will last well over 6 months. Wolves can eat 20 lbs. in a day - but they like to average 2 to 3 lbs. Egads. I'm sure some of you out there have big food budgets for your dogs.

This is the main 'alarm system' at our house, Jackson (aka Deputy Dog) we have an electric one, but it doesn't work nearly as well. He even has multiple alarm tones, one for someone walking on 'his' road, one for someone turning around in the driveway, another for a visitor, another still for 4-legged visitors, and the last one for when the 'rest of the pack' comes home, mostly me, but also to a lesser degree, my wife.





This is the 'backup alarm' system, Rylie, (aka The life of Rylie) who asssits the 'main' system, and also is in charge of making sure my wife is never alone no matter how breifly she changes location, she even follows her into the washroom, her other duties include making sure the couch doesn't fly off into space (like her 15 pounds would make a difference  :D) and that nothing edible that falls to the floor stays there too long.  ;D
