Good for you! They look like happy dogs. Our dalmatian is also a 'velcro' dog, it gets pretty annoying sometimes. Good luck!

We experienced challenges fitting everyone (i.e., humans and animals) in our 19' Bambi when we had two Golden Retrievers. At bedtime, the floor area was completely taken up by dog beds!

We definitely had to turn a light on or use a flashlight to move around the trailer after dark.

Well, both 4-legged family members are getting along quite well now. So well that they're both trying to bury some bones that have "surfaced" in the backyard due to the snow melting.

Trouble is, it's a mud pit in places back there. Especially Lexi the lab. She was having an absolute whale of a time until I saw what they were doing and called them in.

She certainly knew a bath was coming...hang-dog look...

She is obviously thinking to herself, "A bath is no reward for digging to China! I should be getting a nice meaty marrow bone!"

Michelle -- great photo!

I can empathize with you...my Golden looked just like this past weekend! The melting snow revealed 2" in diameter "critter" holes in our backyard which Cody, following a scent, promptly dug 12" wide craters inside of. We could have stopped him but it was too amusing to watch the dirt flying through the air as he buried his head into the ground; we did nothing but sit back and laugh the entire time.

It doesnt look like U need any advise as indicated In your first posts.
Let me commend U for Adopting a dog, sometimes POUND PUPPIES make the best companions.
After losing one of our mini-Schnauzers,who was 14yrs old and had cancer and a heart condition,we elected to Adopt from Schnauzer Rescue and now have three. I 5yr old PuppyMill Dog who had never even walked on grass and a blind and dieabetic 8yr old that just missed being putdown. We love them to death. Best of luck with your new FurBabys.
Roger

I had to laugh as well! Making her sit through an impromptu photo session didn't help her mood. And I did give her cr*p for getting her Burberry bandana all dirty!!

But I didn't snap pictures of her after she finished chewing completely through the usb cable on my brand new Wacom drawing tablet... I'd only had the bloody thing for a whole 3 days...

Who'd have thunk that a usb cable could taste so good? What with a slew of bones and toys scattered around the living room... I'll never know.

What is it with pets and Wacom tablets??? My cat chewed through my cord when he was little. Do they flavor those things?

We just got our 3rd dog this past weekend. Our dogs now are an 11 yr old terrier mix, a 7 yr old retriever mix and the new guy. He's an 8 week old black lab/ english springer spaniel mix. We adopted him from a shelter (had gotten the 7 yr old at a shelter when he was just a baby too). He's a cutie for sure. But I forgot about those sharp puppy teeth and claws, ouch! People think we're crazy for getting a 3rd dog. We were already crazy for many, many reasons though In fact when my husband told his sister that we got a new (to us) camper and told her it was an AS, she said, "Those are the silver things right? You guys are so weird."

Did you all know you were weird for having Airstreams?

Yes, and you've come to the right place!
Also, Karma to you for adopting a pup in need. We'll need you to post pictures now!

Dogs and computer cables

True or not I have read that plastics that make up our remote controls, computer cables, etc. have a fish oil in them. While we can't smell it; you know who can.

BTW, agility is the greatest gift for your dogs, including the lab. It isn't the end result, i.e., running a fast clean run---it's the process. The bond that develops between human and dog as they learn agility together is amazing. They pick up on your body language, your eyes, slight moves of the hand, where shoulders point, where your toes are pointing. And, the whole time, they are smiling because it's you and s/he on the run against the world!

It is because of agility that two rescue dogs of mine grew into the most wonderful companions; one was inordinately reserved and shy--we suspected she was actually feral and the other had annoying dog fear aggression issues. I owe a debt of gratitude to the folks at jump city agility in Los Angeles(Jump City Agility), who welcomed EVERYone, not just the usual suspects (border collies, aussies, etc).
