@Josh Smestad has a Vizsla that is an awesome dog! Though that energy might not go away with age!
I was going to start another thread where folks could argue about politics, but figured I was better off reviving the dog thread with my mutts.
Prudent & much-appreciated choice!
I had a very friendly Golden Retriever buddy-up to me at the grocery store early this morning. As a matter of fact, it jumped into the back of my Outback. On command, it jumped back out & sat. No collar, so I figured I'd stick around in case he had jumped out of some shopper's car/truck & if that didn't pan out, I'd swing by the Emergency Hospital & have them check for a chip. The next thing I knew, he was off on a dead run - tried to find him again, but to no avail. He was well cared for, friendly & obedient so I hope he found home. I drove down later, but he wasn't hanging around anymore.
Our newest addition, Shiloh, an English Mastiff.
Definitely worth liking again, Kerry!
Pingo. Born to fish.
My wife's early Christmas present/my new fishing buddy Baker.
Shea is 15 or so now. She is hanging in there. Her hair does not grow back well and about 15% of the people who see her say "little bear".
She no longer cares if she gets caught eating your food, or escaping the yard. She sleeps about 22 hours a day, farts a ton. She is deaf.
She is pretty much perfect.
Some great looking dogs here. This is our Gunner(aka, Gmoney, Gbuns, Gunther, Spotted Dick)
A rescue from the Yak Res, and a crazy mix of Malamute, shepherd, Chow and pug.
For months he slept, and was mistaken for an Imperial AT-AT, but apparently he was just growing into his hoofs.
He's now 90lbs and the self-appointed herder of my minions and the protector of the realm.
To share your life with a dog for 15 years is extra-special. And I agree about the "perfect" part. Dogs have an easy time achieving that status; people not so much.
He's such a good boy.
My new addition. Ryan is a 2 yr old rescue who was basically ignored for two yrs. I have had him for a little over
3 months and he is turning out to be a fine companion.
My fishing companion, Otter. She's 18 months now, and almost more obsessed with fish then her parents are. I was lucky enough to pull off over 100 days fishing this year and she was with me every step of the way. Still after the 100's of fish she's seen she MUST lick/sniff each and every one. My only hope I can break this 3 day slump and not let her down !
