I'm one and I know that there are lots of you out there. I've had Dog(s) since I was a kid. Our current "beast" is Maggie. We rescued her from a No Kill Shelter when she was a pup. What a combo!! A Schnauzer/Husky/"some kind of Retriever" Mutt.

Now, a question - How many of you, if any, watch the Dog Whisperer. Every week for me, repeats or no. I think that Cesar Millan is God's Gift to dogs who might have been put down otherwise. I think my favorite episode was the Newfoundland who wouldn't eat anything except pricey Doggie treats. Anyone out there watch?? If so, what do you think?? If you love Dogs, and haven't seen the show, it's on The National Geographic Channel on Friday evenings.

I love dogs, too. We watched the Dog Whisperer once, because our friends were on! Griff and his partner have the beagle who barked at every dog he saw, in the park!! They got some very good advice and I did too. The next sequence was a dog that didn't like the family friend, Scott. The dog would not let the guy out of his truck! The Dog Whisperer is something else.

I'm certainly one -- we love Labs in our family, have had them for many generations. Our dog Belle is getting old (14) -- she is THE SWEETEST dog you'd ever wanna meet.

The dog never called back, sent flowers, or even gave a passing bark on the street so I'm done with them as lovers.

My wife and I are both dog lovers. Cats too.

We own a 100 lb German Shepard named Strider. He's just a sweetheart of a dog. Loyal, friendly, loving, and protective all at the same time. Just a great dog.

We lost our 15 year old female German Shepard Dacha a few months ago. She was as close to being the perfect dog that I've ever met. And without a doubt, the smartest. She was a Mensa even among shepards. God I miss her ... My eyes still start to well up when I talk about her.

Two cats as well. A Maine Coon Cat named Joey who weighs over 20 lbs (and still growing). Very loveable. Loves to listen to music with me . Well. He hangs out with me while I'm listening to music but mostly sleeps snugged up against me . In fact, sleeping is what he does and loves best.....

We also small pure white cat named Kitten (because she's very petite...7 lbs ) who loves my wife and I but can't stand Strider. She smacks him hard anytime he gets too close. Poor dog is scared to death of her. I don't blame him. She is a tiny furball of pure attitude when she's mad....

Sorry Bobo. I know this is a dog thread , but I love my cats as well.

Our dog is Ralph, a Brittany. Last month we thought we were going to have to put him down because of congestive heart failure, but he just wasn't ready to go. We've got him on several medications, don't know how much longer he'll be with us(he's 13), but every day from here forward is a gift. We feel like we're rewarding his will to live,as the vet said he had no right surviving his illness.

I have one dog and five (four too many) cats. My dog is named Henry and he's a golden retriever mix. To look at him, you couldn't tell he wasn't full blooded. He and I didn't get off to a good start. I was ambushed by my wife and kids inrto bringing him into our home. They had taken one of the cats to the vet for shots and came home with the cat AND a dog. He was a submissive urinator, meaning any time you reached down to pet him, he'd pee. Then he started chewing up everything. He chewed a garden hose up once, and when he chewed up the replacement, I chased him around the yard and was whipping his ass with a five foot section of the hose. Then he dug out under the fence and went missing for a few days. I was thinking, "Good riddance!" But my wife talked me into going to animal control to see if he was there. Sure enough, there he was. I paid the $30 fine and got him out. I tied him into the back of my work truck with an 18" lead and off to the house we went. About five miles from home, a core sampling barrel started rolling around the back of the truck which spooked him, and over the side he went. I heard a thud and as I was turning my head to see what was going on, I saw him hanging over the side of the truck by his collar. Before I could get stopped, he slipped out of the collar and hit the ground, and I heard a bump bump. I got stopped and saw him flopping around on the shoulder. I'm thinking, great, I just killed the dog. How am I going to explain this to my kids? I got to him, he was trying to get up, his head was a little bloody and he was howling in pain. I figured I'd try to calm him down and maybe he'd just fade away, but after a minute or two, the howling stopped and his tail started wagging. I thought, well, I guess he's going to make it after all. I picked him up and got him to the emergency vet and he didn't have any broken bones, just some scrapes and wrenched front leg. He fully recovered from that. Then the little SOB dug out again and got picked up by animal control AGAIN, and I went to get him, but it was close to Christmas and the pound was closed until the next business day after Christmas. We were going to FL on vacation, so we had to make arrangements with a friend to pick him up and carry him to the vet for boarding and a neuter job. The first two years we had Henry I resented the heck out of him, but one night I came home from somewhere and I was drunk, and I sat on the kitchen floor and Henry and I made up. He and I are best buddies now.

I had to put my American Bulldog Deidre down a year and a half ago. Since then is the first time there hasn't been a dog in this house in over thirty years. I'm starting to think about a new addition. Due to changes in my living conditions I can't get the breed I would really want(American Bulldog), but I love all dogs. I need a dog that is not so large and easily trainable to wee wee pads and that will not tear up the house. If anyone has any suggestions I would be greatful.

Yes he is Linnie...

The name just seemed to suit him as he has a noble bearing when he's standing, and I liked the way he strided along when he was walking at a relaxed gait.

Joey, by the way, was named after Joey Ramone. The name Joey just seemed to fit him as he is just a big fat 20 lb kitten.

I wouldn't own a dog unless it could run free and since I think God only created one breed of dog, The Lab.

I'm stuck with a cat which I love in spite of it's stand offishness...

When I put my cat of 16 years asleep a few years ago I thought I'd never be able to swallow again. It was so sad. Never saw it coming, never knew I'd morn so much. I thought Boo would always be a part of my life and when she died, a part of me died.

To ALL animal lovers on this site, I salute your willingness to take a creature into your life. They give us so much more than we can ever give them.

Dave, oh man i feel bad for the dog but that is one hell of a story!


Drew, that is too cool.


i have had more dogs then most kennels growing up.

But only one cat, the best cat ever, Pi. (aka 3.14......................). He had to get put down in October due to kidney failure. Now that i'm hearing about the pet foods that cause it it really makes me wonder if the food was the cuase of it since i was feeding him one of those types of food. $2,500 in vet bills the first time he got real sick.....but then after that i couldnt afford it anymore. I should probably send the vet bill to Ralston - Purina, eh?


anyway, best cat ever. actually, it was my only cat ever.


RIP Pi!

I have a female american bulldog named Shelby. My wife knew that I really wanted a dog, and she heard from a friend of ours that Shelby was up for adoption at the spca. We went and got her that day, and have been best buds since.

Jehmutt, we have a Brittany also and BTW her name is Maggie. We had an older male Brittany, we had to put down 2 years ago, he was 14. Maggie was a basket case after he went, developed serious seperation anxiety. We adopted a terrier mix from our local shelter and that made all the difference. Maggie is now 11 and our terrier Scruffy, is approx 6 yo. They are best of buddies. And, we watch the Dog Whisperer and have picked up some useful tips from him.

After my husky Amundsen died, I had no interest in owning a dog again.

Four years later, the wife over ruled me, and we now own Bailey, the dumbest dog on the planet.

My cat KC has this dog terrified.

Bailey can't leave the room if the cat is on the other side of the door.

And KC got along just fine with Amundsen.

Hey Linnie. I'm sorry to hear that you lost Pi.

I like that picture.....

Oh by the way Linnie. I forgot to mention. We rescued Strider when he was about 2 years old. The family who owned him didn't abuse him, but they weren't able to give him the attention he needed. They had him living in the garage as the wife would not let him in their brand new "clean" house after they moved.

The poor guy was lonely and a bit needy when we first got him.

To add further insult, the old family named him Brooks after...Garth Brooks.

We renamed him pretty quickly....

I'm lucky enough to be owned by our Newfoundland " Abby " . She is a sweetheart and my constant companion. She goes everywhere with me, lays on the bathroom floor while I shower. She's definately not a picky eater and is happy to share whatever I'm eating. At 140 lbs we keep the people food to minimum. Newfi's have to be big to hold all the love inside of them.
