We got Cookie (our Peek-a-Poo) from our next-door neighbor. When the female had a litter of pups, my father selected one for a pet. He has since passed away, but Cookie travels with us everywhere our Airstream goes.
Baby, our 15 year old flame-point Siamese cat, doesn't travel well, and stays home unless there is a natural disaster in the offing. At his age, we are trying to "keep the miles off him", and keep him with us as long as possible. Both four-legged family members are in very good health, and we do our best to keep them that way.

Post Past three dogs all from shelters/rescues

Latest dog, came from a local shelter we saw his pix on petfinder.com, oh those sad eyes got us. Then in person the sweet disposition did us in. Combine that with the fact that he was on his last days at a shelter that euthanizes...We've had great luck with local rescues too because the foster parents know the dog's personality well and can give a person an idea of the lifestyle compatibility too. All of them have been lab mixed with ??

Wink 2 Smart Girls!

I have a very smart and beautiful Louisiana Catahoula who was purchased from a breeder. No offense to anyone, but I am sure she is the smartest dog in the world. I later rescued the very sweetest (but not necessarily the smartest) Rottweiller from a less than optimal home situation.

I was talking about both of them to some lady who was next to me in the pet store and my obvious love of them came thorough. As I was telling the story about the one smart and one sweet but not so smart girls, the lady said, "Well she's obviously pretty smart. She got you!"

She sure did.

Crazy Dogs

We have 2 dogs (our children), a Parson's Jack Russel Terrier, and a Carin Terrier.
Marley, the Jack, is 3 years old, and was a rescue from the local humane society. My wife had been bugging me for months for a dog, so one saturday morning out of the blue I decided to take her to the shelter. We walked into the puppy room and saw the cutiest dog ever, and she knows it, and decided she was the one. We found out that she had only been dropped off the night before and had just gotten her shots. She was 7 months old at the time.
Winne, named after our love affair with our Winnebago motorhome (please don't kill me, it passed) is a Carin Terrier who is the offspring of my Dad's 2 dogs. After my Dad's dog Duncan got pregnant my wife deciced that Marley needed a play mate. After some light discussion (she won) we decided to take one of the puppies. I couldn't resist after holding the tiny little thing in the palm of my hand. She is now 2 years old.
Both dogs are very, very, very active; and are enough to drive a guy to drink, but I love them both. When they see the AS pull in front of the house they go absolutely nuts because they know that we are going camping.

I am SORRY, but you must BOTH be confused. OUR dogs are the smartest in the world. What one doesn't get, the other one picks up :-) Our smooth coat is a wimp, and the rough coat is deaf, and fearless. They work off each other .

One we paid a fortune for at a pet shop, the other was a special needs rescue, we had her shipped to Illinois from Arkansas :-)

We have never regretted that decision for ONE single second.

I'm sure that everyone will agree that their pet is the smartest, friendliest, best-looking and best behaved pet in the world.

We got our Weimaraner, Wally, 9 1/2 years ago when he was five months old from a breeder who had received him back from a first buyer who thought he was not "standard." Is that a rescue? Well, he ISN'T just standard, he's exceptional. He IS over sized, but that is just so he could fit his big heart. He is loyal, loving, tolerant. . .a great dog. But, he is getting older and slowing down. He does not travel with us because he just loves home, and now his pond. We've been thinking for some time that we might bring a younger dog into our home for a companion for Wally, a pup to help keep him active and young. Friday, I found an ad in the newspaper for a 4 month old German Shorthair; one look, I was sunk, and he is now sparking our lives. Wally, true to his patient agreeable nature, is accepting this pushy youngster and the pup is settling in nicely. This one, I think, we'll train to travel with us. So, Wally and Moose are our furries~not to mention our elderly blind cat and two young barn kitties.

Actually, my Pei (Bandit) really is smart and well-behaved. That being said, he doesn't play well with other dogs, and is kind of stand-offish with people, so scratch friendly off of the list. He is also,without a doubt, the ugliest dog that I have ever taken up residence with. It's nice to look at all these cutesy pictures of everybody's huggable little critters, or handsome shots of heroic-looking large dogs, but my Bandit falls short of anything that I've seen on the forum thus far. I mean the poor bugger has really been whacked with the ugly stick a few too many times. I've really gotta take some pictures and figure out how to post them. Is there some kind of forum prize or title for having the ugliest dog? If so, I think Bandit and I would win it hands (paws?) down ! P.

There was a live pet show a couple of weeks ago, the Ugliest Dog Contest. The ugliest dog really was. No hair, warts all over his skin, lop-eared, and looked like he had chased a parked bus...
