    This is my boy Bentley (just

    after raiding the bin for the remains of tuna pasta bake!) He is 2 years old and a shih tzu cross breed. We rescued him from gypsies when he was just 3 months old. Sadly by this stage the abuse he'd suffered had affected him mentally and he hates men and children, and...

    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...

    You Can't Make This Stuff Up

    You just can't make this stuff up. The other day my wife had gotten a bit "fancied up" to go out and have lunch with several other retired teachers when she decided she'd feed the dogs before she left. Next thing I hear is, "Damn", and I look up and see her standing in the...

    She's a Golden Retriever.

    She's as kind as any animal could be. She gets super excited when there're guests around. Her only bad traits are that she doesn't come when you call her & she goes on the road on occasion.

    He's a German Shepard

    and Black Lab mutt. He's a pretty big dog, but he constantly jumps on bed during thunderstorms. (And, of course he takes up over half of the bed because he always lays down horizontally right next to me.) He's quite overweight, but that's okay because his black fur covers up his...

    My dog is an idiot, but I adore her.

    Her favourite pastime it rolling in badger/fox poo, so Im often washing her off with shampoo. She also likes to roll in any dead animal carcass she may find out and about. I love it when she sits on me on the sofa although she is anything but a lap dog. Love her to bits!!!!

    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...

    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...

    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.
