    My First dog was a year old

    and 1/2 yellow lab named Pillsbury. He was an unique and special dog, who did wonderful and unusual things. He was passive, gentle and always chewing on stuff sometimes. He obeyed commands like sit, lay down, jump and where the leash when he wants to go to pee or poop. He was a...

    The Hot Dog Test And Some Sappy Stuff

    Well my puppy graduated from puppy training class. He is a golden retriever. If any of you have one you know how crazy mad they are about food. His final test was kinda simple but, of all the dogs in the class, mine was going to have the toughest time. The instructor came over...

    I've had pitbulls my whole life,

    never once been bitten or attacked. I know the breed can be violent, but so can any breed. My cousins pit was attacked and killed by a golden retriever, but no one ever thinks about it being the other way around. Pitbulls are powerful, and if you're not prepared to train it...

    Words From a New Dog Owner

    I adopted a dog last week and boy, I never knew how much of a sloth I had become. I live in a condo in an urban area, so I don't have the luxury of letting my dog run outside in a yard whenever she wants. I've got to strap on a leash and walk her to the nearest park... about 4...

    I probably love my dog too much.

    He's a one-year-old bluenose APBT, and he's probably too smart for his own good. I get a lot of dirty looks from people when I walk him (usually from the people with their little ankle-biters) and it bothers me that people are stupid and think that Pitbulls are bloodthirsty...

    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...

    as she will probably be put down later this week. My best friend, unconditional love. Coming down from my meds isn't helping me with this situation either. I love animals, but can't get another, as I can't bear to go through this again.

    She is as adorable as she is obnoxious, as is typical of a puppy. Eight months old now; we got her when she was more than six months, and was already harder to train. She is also not very friendly to those outside of her "family," and has this incrededible inclination to dislike...

    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...
