Mick gone a year ago he was 15. The little Yorke just two weeks ago he was almost 17. Truck seems empty now.
Hate to see losing two friends. Such sweethearts. Good dogs should live longer. Probably should outlive most people. They are such good friends and innocent and dedicated. nice picture.

My father-in-law once asked me, why do you like that dog so much. I said - it treats me so well. Then he said, well doesn't my daughter treat you ok. I said Sure. But if you want to know who really likes you, put your wife and your dog in the trunk of the car. Come back in an hour and see which one is glad to see you!

I grew up with dogs,.... but none on the bed.
Was married for 34 years,....no dogs on the bed!
Have lived with a lady now for 21 years,.....dog is on the bed.
We have a queen bed, currently have a 75 lb. Lab, we really do need a king bed!
Lady Sadie (now 2) is a long girl, and really likes to stretch out!
And that, my friend, is part of the cycle of life. At it's best. Oh, by the way, we have a king bed. And the dog sleeps in the bed with us. But I am not sure it helps. Just gives the dog more room to claim before I get there. Ha

Here is the reality with an ecollar.

See the dog licking his chops in the pic below? (brown coat).

Dog was going to be destroyed by the pound. For whatever reason, he's "odd" when it comes to bigger dogs than himself (other than those in our home). He was my neighbors dog, and I'll give the dog the benefit of the doubt and assume he was actually smarter than my neighbor (who has since moved, which I'm grateful for due to numerous reasons). Side note, dog was kept outside off lead 24/7. Within a couple of weeks he's never had an accident in the house, and he's crated at night.

I have another neighbor on the other side of me that lets his dog roam free. Those two dogs do not get along. Without an ecollar, I would not be able to control the situation on my end (with the brown coat dog).

Technically, I could shoot my neighbor's dog because that dog can spend more time on my property than my neighbors at times, but he's (neighbors dog) is really a good dog, it's just that these two do not get along because our neighbors dog doesn't "live" with us, and only visits coming onto our property which the "brown dog" is trying to defend as he now sees our land as "his turf"

With some dogs, no matter how much training, for whatever reason due to their past, they have odd issues that could become big issues down the road. This is where a ecollar shines.

I don't have the money or great "story" to have ceasar millan (sp?) to fly to us and come and make a TV show, nor with both my wife and I working 80 plus hours a week to try and spend time to understand exactly what is going on with this dogs brain to spend every hour trying to train him.

2 notes

1 - When we sell the house will spend big bucks to redo the kitchen LOL

2 - The cat's balls of steel keep getting bigger when he'd down in the kitchen and the dogs are eating.

That brown dog will be wearing a ecollar the rest of his life with us.

If you ever have a dog that you're giving hope on, I'd ALWAYS suggest to try an ecollar for behavior modification.

Sorry to hear that about your little ones. I like my medium sized border collie and cattle dog but I also like my wife's chihuahua a lot. The little guys love the rides and the laptime. Take care and be comforted that you gave them both long lives and a good home.

She looks like she was a great dog and was guarding that sack of peat moss for you. I love dogs like that. She is in the next life waiting for you.

Not to detract from a great thread (all dog pics are good)...but it's important to be aware...
Some breeds simply can't be trusted...

If the most renown canine temperament therapist in the world can't get a hold on his own dog...it says something...!

Dogs personalities vary as much as peoples do. A few can't be trusted but the vast majority can be trained and trusted. Below is a few over the years we've had. All were trained. No shock colliers used.

Since you guys like them, here is a few more. Most taken on my folks farm. In the 1st one, Wally was told to get up there. It was sooooo scary. Its good to make mutts do things, they don't wnat to.

These beasts were BIG and fearless, so he didn't last long at that position. The cows noted right away it wasn't the usual boarder collie watching the gate. :ROFLMAO:

Several, all used and abused.
We have 6 Akita's. Matsu is my big boy. He's 120 pounds and super protective of the yard, but also very affectionate. Every night while watching TV, he has to have his snuggle time. He also loves to play with the other Akita's. The pictures are with his daughter, Kaida, who is 17 months old.

^^^ A LOT like my dog in that she's always got this happy look going on. Got her out today after some big rains and she was able to "run the ditches." She'll run like a bobsledder, splashing all over the place: she'll even run through grass and toss her head into it causing water to flip up. And at 95 lbs it's like a freight train!

ok, you gotta look real close but.....

i found hair from my ranger dog clogging up my keyboard ....he was 3 dogs ago and pure white so i could tell it was him!

quick story about supporting your product.

i bought that keyboard on craig's list 10 years ago. it was probably $2K new and i probably paid about 50% retail? Lightly Used instruments and exercise machines are a dime a dozen.

The actual keys started to stick. Went online, found it to be a common problem and also found Yamaha was replacing the entire plastic keyboard assembly, free of charge and they pay the labor!

The web page was old and the new repair program required me to pay about $75 for labor.

I was so impressed. My keyboard was 6-7-8 years old at the time and i was not the original buyer. And i beat it like a red headed step son!

I tell that story to anyone who will listen and go on to say i wouldn't buy anything but yamaha keyboards in the future!

That's the oldnormal!

Didn't intend to have a Deere fleet - it just happened 310C, F915,102, 5200 & 5065E
So pray tell, what did the good doggie do to get the award?

I assume "I passed" does not refer to a BM? Or that it was not misspelled with an "a" instead of an "i".

Seriously, very nice looking pup. !!

Thanks for the kind words...Pup passed the AKC "Good Canine Citizen" evaluation.. Ten situations whence his behavior is judged.
