Dogs are awesome! My dog Rocky is awesome! He is a feist mix and he is about 20 pounds. That dog can and has killed an opossum as big as he is!

When I see this dog I think of a dog that would jump on your chest and start licking your face all the time. I could just eat this puppy up.
Nathan Bromer
I love dogs. They are great companions and they are so sweet. Dogs are the greatest. Why doesn't everyone who should have a dog get a dog?
Katarina Cooper
I love dogs. Dont get me wrong, all animals are good, but i love snuggling up with my wonderful dogs!

I think dogs are great companions as long as there is no excessive show of affection by the dog, however i find my self being more of a cat person.

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!

M. L. Monroe
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.
Teri Gonzalez-Lugo
What a gorgeous pup! A bichon-poodle mix? What a great combination. One of my pups is a daschund-poodle mix and looks like your pup except her coloring is blonder. Her body is probably longer too. Your pup is adorable!
Tiffany Rankin
He was a rescue just turned out he was a very expensive dog someone didn't want. I had always said I didn't much like poodles since they always seemed so super girly but he was just to cute to pass up!

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.
Yuly Marie
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.
Ashley Renfro
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...
Susan Turner
Wow that is a lot of money for a dog. I really do not understand the price. Can you tell me why you would spend that much?
Ashley Renfro
Because my fiance is insistant that if we get a dog that it has to be a pure german rotweiller, and in comparison to other pure rotties she is cheap. her father cost the breeder 6,500 the mother was 5,500
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.
Susan Turner
I have one of them too, one that eats people, one is just happy to be here, one scared of every thing,one that is half blind and growls at every thing. And the eighty pounder just looks at people and never barks
M. L. Monroe
Oh wow, you have some interesting pups Susan Turner. I have had to keep the number of pets I can support to three, mainly because I prefer to feed them high quality food which to me is what Blue Buffalo is. Now if only I could win that lottery LOL
Susan Turner
Yes they are all interesting and different from each other. They are very healthy considering their age oldest is 11 and is very active. Love my critters.
Marcy Machen
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.
Teri Gonzalez-Lugo
What a beautiful girl! She looks like she is a black Labrador. My cousin has a black lab and she is so beautiful and smart. Dogs are the most amazing creatures on earth! I love my pups!
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.
