    void in my life. When she was taken from me so suddenly it broke my heart.I had been looking off and on for a new puppy and not able to find the Jack Russell to replace her. One day while scouring the internet I found an ad for a miniature pinscher and knew that's the one!I...

    My Best Friend Twinkie ❤

    It had been one year since my dad had died and on his birthday my family and I decided to go to the shelter to get me a dog. I was excited because I've always loved dogs and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen. I walked down all the rows looking at each dog trying to...

    I took one of my dogs to the park earlier today,

    and someone with her golden retriever (who was growling at my dog) told me to, "Get that vicious beast out of the park before it kills someone". What a sad and uneducated world we live in.

    Well, because I have no self control.

    .. I adopted another pitbull today. She's only 3 months old and was found in a crate in someone's basement with two other puppies who didn't make it to the vet. I'm so excited to finally have another rescue puppy. :)

    I wish when people buy pets they understand

    that they are breathing creatures that they don't deserve to be treated like they are savages. So with that being said I am extremely disgusted by the Yulin dog festival taking place in China this year. I could never think of seeing my poor baby Thor being boiled or skinned or...

    My Dog Saved My Life

    Wyatt is a medium sized dog.  He is a black and white mixed breed.  I adopted him from a shelter when he was a puppy.  Groomers and vets have told me they suspect he is part schnauzer and part terrier.  He loves to eat any kind of food that comes from a noisy...

    This Could Only Happen To Me

    My son calls this "the funniest thing he will ever see in his whole life". Of course, it is something stupid I did. My 2-yr old, 100 lb "puppy" has developed a nasty habit of running between people's legs as they descend the stairs from our second floor to the first floor. He...

    I had 2 puppies. They

    both have been seized by the police because they thought my dogs looked "dangerous". I could understand why they took my first dog because I didn't have the licence at the time but the papers were on the way it just took too long. A few months after that I got a new dog and I...

    My oldest dog, Roscoe,

    is getting surgery to remove yet another benign tumor tomorrow. He's getting old, and on top of that he's fought cancer twice, but it doesn't stop him from still acting like the eternal puppy he is. I know I don't have many years left with him, so I'm going to make the best out...

    My dog is a great companion

    and I feel really fortunate to have him. I got him almost five years ago when he was just ten weeks of age. He was a feisty little guy even when I first saw him. He wasn't the leader of his pack but he sure was the one with the most character. My family and I purchased him from...

    I love my babies so much.

    They are both rescues. My big girl is a Pointer mix, she was used as a breeding dog. Once she got to 2.5 years old, they dumped her. She loves going hunting with me and watches over my little one! My little one was a puppy mill rescue and she is a little turd.

    This year will be our 11th year together

    as a family. She was abused by her previous owners, came into my back yard when I was 10yrs old and never left. I'm 21 now and I don't know how much time we have left, but I'll always love her.

    My puppy Scarlett is a mixed red nose pitt

    and chocolate lab. She's hilarious when there's mirrors around!! She doesn't know if she likes the strange dog she sees. Sometimes she growls, whines, and scratches or brings her toy bone to the mirror to play. It too cute.

    I have 2 dumb dogs. Their names are Lloyd

    and Chester. We have had Lloyd for 10 years now. We got him even when my dad was still around. He is very loyal to us. Chester doesn't seem to care to anything though. He just does his dog stuff. I called them dumb, but I actually love them very much.
