I have always loved dogs. As a child I had a beagle. He had been a test dog for the first year of his life and was afraid when we first got him. He was very sweet but was food aggressive. I think the food aggression may have been caused by how he and the other dogs were treated when they were tested on. He was llike part of the family. He passed away in 2010. I always miss him. I would love to get another dog one day.

Beagles are amazing dogs, I have 3 adopted beagles/beagle mixes and they are the best dogs I have ever had
Tiffany Rankin
I love dogs! I have owned so many great dogs over the years and now I have a bichon poodle mix, such a sweet heart!

What a cutie ... I have never chosen a dog, I just have had the luck to be able to rescue puppies from the streets, they always turn out to be bigger dogs but I wouldn't trade them for the world.

I have been lucky enough to have two of the coolest most awesome dogs in my life. Once as a kid and I never thought he could be equaled but the one I had as an adult was every bit an incredible pooch. The worst was always having to say goodbye after very long happy lives and just losing to father time.

i have two dogs i love dogs they are the best friend of man who wouldnt like dogs and they are cute too
Daniel Broxton
I really want a dog soon. I mean really really soon. I feel kind of lonely without Mj and Roxxi. I miss them both.
M. L. Monroe
But before you get one are you sure you will be able to keep them? Dogs are not toys and it is cruel to them if you have to give them away, they become so attached to us.

In 6 days I am getting my new puppy, she is the most expensive dog I have ever had. She is going to cost me 2 grand.. Well actually she is costing my fiance 2 grand...
Emma Hope
Took the doggie for a late night walk. And he sees other dogs starts barking and tries to hide behind me. He is so silly.
Lucas F
Aww, precious lil' thing! My dog would definitely be the dog barking at 'em though, he's a big noisy thing, especially when it comes to other pups. Can hardly even keep him still, haha.
Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
Mine like to bark at other dogs to. As they want to play with them. They don't seem to understand not all dogs want to play with them.
Susan Turner
I have 6 of them all are different but I love each and every one of them. They range from 6 pounds to 80 pounds.
M. L. Monroe
I have one who is more or less a bully, I do not trust him around other dogs for fear he will try to fight with them. But he love the really young puppies.
Donna Follin
I was afraid of dogs when I was little until my aunt and uncle had a black retriever named Duke that I fell in love with. Ever since then I have like most dogs except for Chihuahuas.
Susan Turner
Chihuahuas well I am not so much on them either. My boss had two that were horrible little ankle biters. Although I am sure there are nice ones.

I took my Honey out the other evening and we were just messing around so I took another picture of her in the car.
She is a big girl but she loves dogs, cats and people you can't ask for more than that.

Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
She is a lovely girl. My dogs do not like cats. Not sure why. My Chug was the first to bark at cats through the fence. He got my English mastiff started. Funny thing is both will jump back when a cat comes close.
Marcy Machen
Mine grew up with cats and small dogs guess that is why she is so good with smaller animals.Maybe yours just aren't sure what a cat is.
Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
Neither of them really do. They have not grown up with cats. They see them pass by the backyard fence and will bark at them.
Bev Szamborski
Mine are not cat lovers, either. But, they did not grow up with cats. Plus, they are hounds, and I think they look at cats as prey. They just want to chase them away.
M. L. Monroe
She is a beauty. I love how shiny her coat is ... not the slightest bit spoiled is she LOL ... just kidding, I can tell she is. So, are you well trained yet Marcy?
Marcy Machen
HI, M. L. yes to answer your question she has trained me really well thank you.. She is really a good girl and she is well trained She does have a beautiful coat and I attribute that to her Canidae dry dog food.
M. L. Monroe
Hi Marcy ... I too am well trained LOL. I will have to give Canidae a look see, I have my furbabies on Blue Buffalo Grain free right now.
Susan Turner
I have 6 dogs and 8 cats they all get alone really good. I have one dog that will break up the dogs or the cats if they get into an argument.
Jon Schmootzy
wow that is so cool. I wish I had a doggie, can you tell me how to get one. thanks so much Susan
M. L. Monroe
Wow, I wish I could afford to keep that many Susan Turner but alas I can only afford the three I have right now.
Bev Szamborski
Marcy, is she a black lab? She's beautiful! And labs are such sweet dogs. I use the same dog food and find it to be a very good food.
Jackie Wendt
i think all animals are great companions ! for all ages and make great therapy for the elderly along children who are in sick in hospitals
Jon Schmootzy
I'm not so sure about that. For instance, have you ever had a zebra as a pet? They are stinky and shouldn't be brought into the house.
Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
Have you heard of Zeuterin? It is a chemical solution containing zinc gluconate that can be injected into the dogs to sterilize them. When used in a veterinary context it is referred to as Zeutering, and is an alternative to the traditional surgical neutering. It is relatively quick, inexpensive, and less painful than established neutering techniques. The recovery time can also be much shorter. It has has been around since 2004. i wish it would gain popularity in the USA,
Jackie Wendt
i wonder just how safe it is for the dog !an what the end side-effects are ! well they ever bring it to the usa
Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
I have heard good things about it. It has been done for 10 years. I am planning on doing some more research to see if I can find the pros and cons of it. So, far I like what I have read.
Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
I so miss my dogs being on vacation. My puppy sleeps with me. I love how he cuddles. I did get to meet his momma.
Jimmy Nguyen
I love dogs. They are so kind and loyal to you. I love how they are so happy and cheerful. I love how they understand how you feel and reflect that emotion back to you. And I love how they are so helpful.
Emma Hope
my doggie does not like his bed, it is to hot to sleep with a blanket. he has been lying under the table, it is cool there i gueass
Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
08/09/2014 Time to share another photo of my dogs. I take so many photo's of them. That I could share a photo a day for a very long time.

Debra Meilahn
That is how I am, I have a small camera that i carry in my pocket when I go outside. you just never know when they are going to do something cute and my Beagle is such a Ham when she is outside. My hubby just said to me the other day that is all you do is take pictures of the dogs. YES I DO!!!!
Marcy Machen
Oh Sandy, hey are adorable I love looking at the doggie photos. Someone came by yesterday that had never met my new baby and when he saw her he asked me where is her saddle. She is large.
I will have to put up another picture of her soon.
M. L. Monroe
OMG, how cute are they ... you have such a wonderful pack to take care of you and of course visa versa. They are totally cute.
Sandy Segur (aka rusty2rusty)
I can never get cuteness over load when sharing or looking at puppy pictures. I thought this might lighten someone else's day besides mine. It is Rascal on the prowl out in the backyard.

M. L. Monroe
Awwww, what a cutie, thanks for making my day ... I just asked my furbabies if they want another puppy, they gave me a dirty look LOL
Barbara Burley
I have two dogs and three puppies. I want to find homes for those three puppies but I am scared because of the fact that some people would use them as bait dogs.
Jennifer Neilson
I just had to take my dog to the vet because he kep scratching and was losing fur in places. Turns out he has allergies and all his scratching cause a skin infection. Now he has to taken antibiotics and benedryl and I have to wipe his paws with special wipes.
Ruth Gyman
I grew up with dogs and I so so miss not having one. My dog could always know when I needed him and I so much enjoyed having a dog all my childhood life now that I grown I so want a dog but my husband says no he not a animal lover like me not that he hates them he just doesn't want one. Maybe, one day he will change his mind.
