I Have a Dog

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 52,519 People

    This is Viktor. An American Bully,

    rescued from a backyard breeder/dogfighting ring. Because of his bad breeding, he has hip dysplasia and a heart murmur. But my other dogs and I love him even though he can't play like the others. :)

    I'm reading this book that's talking about

    intelligence in dolphins and apes and they're specifically mentioning the self-awareness test, where they find out through various measures if an animal recognizes itself in a mirror. It's supposed to be a good sign of higher intelligence and self-awareness. They keep talking...

    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...

    and I know they love each other. One's older by 3 years, and they have an adoptive mum-daughter relationship. One time, I was hugging and patting my younger dog, and after a while, she went out and soon came back with her mummy doggie. They immediately came up to me and we had...

    Aladdin. He spends almost every second of the day by my side and is my best friend in the whole world. When he's not working, my favorite new game to play with him is hide and seek. I'll hide somewhere in the house and call his name until he finds me. I'd highly recommend the...

    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. :)
