I love to be around puppies and as mine is not she minds reallly good as she is older now and goes outside with me to water plants
Elena Qian
I love both dogs and cats so I wouldn't say I am either type of person but instead, both. They have such great qualities and can be so adorable they're irresistible!

Can you still teach an old dog new tricks or lessons? I taught my dog some tricks when she was 8 months old and she still can do them except she can only roll over one way now for some reason. She's become very loud now when she hears a noise of any kind and barks for a long time...is it possible to break her of that habit and a few others she has acquired?
M. L. Monroe
Ask yourself if you can teach an old person new things, the answer would be the same, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if old dogs learn better than old people. LOL
Ashley H
Well I don't know...old people can be very stubborn lol jk That's a good point though . Thanks. I assume it will just take a little longer to teach her a few things the older she gets

This is our newest addition Roxy. She is now just about 10 weeks old. She is a pure bred GSD. She is such a sweetheart.

Marcy Machen
She is a Beauty and looks so happy laying in the grass. I bet you play with her a lot-does she like to catch fresbees?
M. L. Monroe
Awesome, beautiful ears, moms shepherd didn't have ears like that until she was over 3 months old. Her vet told her never to mess with her ears or they won't stand like they should.

We have always had dogs. Growing up we just would take in strays... and we still do that to an extent now, but we keep labs in the home with us. They are part of our family. They are a part of us. We have two right now. One blonde and one chocolate. We love them.
M. L. Monroe
All my pups past and present have always been my family and all have been rescues. I used to dream of having a lab and a GSD but now that I'm getting old I can see that it will be harder for me to handle a large dog, not the training mind you but if I had to carry one to the vet I would not be able to do so.

I have always wanted a dog. But instead I have a pet pig. I can't complain, but dogs are much more cuddly..
Ashley H
ahh! I have always wanted a pig. No joke. They are awesome. Is that it in your picture? My grandpa had pigs on his farm but they were never as pets :'( lol
Brass Knucks Barb
I really want to get a pomsky. I hope I spelled that correctly lol. They are just too darn adorable! Then again anything in a small form is :P
Emily Jansen
I saw a picture of those and they are way to cute. I like the teddy bear poms also. Just as adorable.
Brass Knucks Barb
Teddy bear poms?! Oh lord! I have never cared for having small dogs but this sounds awesome lol I am going ot have to look into them.
M. L. Monroe
My best friends are the pups and their kitty, or rather the kitty and her pups. The kitties are always the possessive ones, aren't they?
Japnit Sumal

Angelina Marie

Josh Adebayo
I love my dog. I just have to train her more and she will be more than perfect. I love it when she runs after rabbits and stuff.
Marcy Machen
Training is good for your dog and they do love to run and chase after things. I have found the Frisbees are great fun for them to fetch and play with.
Marcy Machen
The dogs do love to fetch Frisbees and chase the tennis balls, they are so much fun to watch when they are having fun.
Marcy Machen
Dogs are such wonderful creatures they just love and love their
family. I would be lost without mine as she goes just about everywhere with me.

Josh Adebayo
That is awesome, Marcy. I love it when my dog runs up to me out of happiness. Makes me want to cry sometimes.
Marcy Machen
Aww thanks Josh they do give us a lot of happiness and companionship. I adopted mine when she was 8 weeks old and she is now 2 years old and my bestest friend and companion.
Erica Serna
I was someone who use to be terrified of dogs especially big dogs I was attacked by a lab when I was 8 so I didn't like dogs then on my 25th birthday my husband gave me a shitzu puppy and it was love at first sight Oreo helped me get over my fear of dogs we even got a pit bull named Cupcake and she is the sweetest dog I have ever seen so I have learned that dogs are truly get friends as long as you take the time to train them.

Marcy Machen
Aw wonderful that you now not afraid of dog and yes they do need to be trained properly. Mine is trained and minds me, I take her to the Off Leash Dog Park almost every day, she has made friends with both 2 and 4 legged. Everyone that meets her loves her.
Wretha Smith
Ohhhh that is the cutest face! I love dogs and have even started liking the terrier types more and more.... I will always have a soft spot in my heart for chihuahua's though. :)
Christi Harris
People are always claiming that pit bulls are bad digs have never met mine. Mine is just a big baby that loves to cuddle and to play.

Mary Kirkland
I don't believe all that breed specific stuff about pit bulls or other dogs being so mean. Any dog can be mean if they are trained to be that way. Most dog are great pets if they are trained well and loved. Yours is so cute.
Christi Harris
Thank you. He is spoiled rotten. When he gets cold he has to get under the covers. He thinks he has to be right up under someone at all times. He knows when he does something wrong. He'll either go to his cage or go stand in the corner. He will let you know when he needs to go outside. But he also gets jealous to.
M. L. Monroe
Pit Bulls are some of the friendliest and cuddliest dogs I know of. A lady I know has 3 of them and she told me a funny story about how they pinned her in her bed, thank goodness it was cold out as 2 were on one side of her on top of her blanket and the other was on the other side, she said it was really hard trying to get out from under her covers. Pretty vicious, right? LOL
Christi Harris
I say that was pretty vicious of them M.L. Sounds like those dogs knew that it was too cold fir your friend. Dogs are pretty darn smart. I see her babies were just keeping her safe and warm, that's love there.
M. L. Monroe
Oh yeah, it surly is Christi Harris ... I have seen her pups try to pile up on the recliner with her, but then she siked them on me and I ended up pinned in the chair. They are so sweet but I gotta say I could do without all that licking LOL.
Wretha Smith
There is no such thing as a bad dog, just bad humans who don't know how to take care of their animals, it's such a sad thing too since the breed gets blamed for the bad behavior of people.....
M. L. Monroe
Wretha Smith, I have realized over the past 50 years that dogs and people have one thing in common, each has his/her own personality which means that some can be born with a mean streak but it has nothing to do with breed. I also know that several breeders who were raising sentry dogs chose potential parents based on their aggressive behavior, so yeah, dogs can be bred for aggression. Kinda like people who are bullies, get two people together who both have that aggressive bully attitude and chances are their children will too. Its genetics.
Jennifer Neilson
Love my dog, but he's the biggest pain in the butt sometimes. He destroys lots of stuff and he sheds terribly. I have to vacuum everyday.
Kevin V
when i get my own place, first thing im gonna do is go to a rescue shelter and get a dog. I have always wanted one
M. L. Monroe
May I recommend that you get 2, the reason is that when you leave you wouldn't want your dog to be lonely and thereby destroy something, if you have 2 then it is likely they would play together while you're gone.
Marcy Machen
Does anyone take their dog to the Off Leash Dog Park?
I do and my dog loves to go their and meet new people
and other dogs. When she comes home she is wore out
and goes to sleep.
Marcy Machen
dogs love you unconditionally and we love them. they are
excellent companions and when we are with them we are
not lonely
M. L. Monroe
Yep, so very true. I never have a dull moment even when I am keypunching, the pups and the kitty make sure I am never on for too long.
