our 2 brats

Here are our two dogs
Ginger is yellow lab mix 10 now.
Chase is a red tri Australian Shepard now 6
Both are rescue dogs. Ginger came from a family friend that has 2 special needs kids & one more so just could not take care of her. She was dog agressive. Chase had a nasty habit of coming behind visitors & biting them. The original owner was going to put him down but the vet talked them into giving him to Aussie rescue. He blew his rear leg ACL and we met him a week after surgury. He lives life fast. Both dogs get along great. Ginger is not dog aggressive unless provoked by another dog and Chase rarely goes after people now so this is a good thing. The 2 legged kids are out of the house so these are our kids now. :drool::drool:

KEEP AWAY FROM THE JEEP ! Or Foxy our 9 lb Pomeranian will tear your head off. :rotfl:

We bought her for my Wife 9 years ago, but I have to admit. I haven't ever had a better dog...she will put a smile on your face every time you see her.

I'd have to agree with you on this one :) I inherited a Pomeranian/terrier mix from my ex and she has been a great little dog!




I've also fostered several greyhounds, here are a few of them:

Here is my boy Hugo. I adopted him from the Humane Society. I named him after the hurricane becasue he was large and distructive. Apparently someone had him as a house dog and he developed a drooling problem so they got rid of him. He was fully trained just too messy to keep in the house with all the drool but since i was not looking for a house dog he is perfect for us. I got him about 8 years ago now and the vet says that he is probably over ten but he is still going strong. He is a huge block head chocolate lab weighing in at 120 lbs.

Spotty, an Australian Shepherd mix my sister in law found on the side of the road that's dumb as a freaking brick and more like a cat than a dog, on a ride in the Scrambler with his insane floppy ears going flying nun:

RIP "little" Spotty dog.

We had to put Spotty down today, he got ill on Saturday and took a bad turn for the worse this morning. Got an ultrasound of his abdomen today and found out he had a bad gall bladder that was causing liver failure as well as an unrelated kidney disease that was made worse by the rest of it. Kate and I were there for him at the end. Not fun telling Laura tonight, Spotty's been there since she was first around and she keeps saying she wants him back.

Our other dog has never been an only dog since we rescued her, can tell she's out of sorts too.

Y'all give yours a pet and a hug.

Eric - So sorry about Spotty.

My dog is the sole reason a got a full top - she didn't like the half cab front seat. Sometimes I laugh at the lengths I go to for my dog.

Here is Gretchen in the Scrambler enjoying her "playpen" in the back. She is harnessed to the floor with a full body harness made by "buckle up pup".

Eric, I am very sorry to hear this. We have been through this a few times recently. The latest was this past year when we had to put our Weim down. He was very close to my wife (as she was with him). It was very difficult. He was too young.

And I know what you mean about the other dog(s) being out of sorts. They have a hard time as well.

BW, our family's hearts go out to you guys. I absolutely fear the day our 9yo Pomeranian has to leave us. She has been there from the begining of our marriage, I know my wife will be a wreck.

Thanks folks. Kate was very close with Spotty, but he was always sort of off doing his own thing and mostly slept. He also had started in with some bad arthritis in his hips to the point where he was starting to have issues with stairs.

Our other dog is actually older by a couple years and is attached to me at the knee, so to speak. Don't want to think about when it's her time, but she still gets around incredibly well and can keep up with much younger dogs.

BW, I really feel for you and your family! We had to put our little Sally down this last summer. I still miss her greatly. Wo got her from a homeless couple that could no longer care for her and were trying to give her away in front of a Wal-Mart. She was in rough looking condition but my wife could not refuse. We didn't have her for very long as she was already pretty old but she was one of the sweetest dogs I've ever known and we are comforted by the fact that we gave her a very good end. They are family.

The three of us (Uno, me and Sally) taking a nap together last summer:

Eric, sorry for y'alls loss.
It's a tough thing to have to do, but as our best friends, we owe it to them when they are suffering.
Been there, done that, sad, sad day.
Rescue another.

Here's our second rescue (On the left).
Belle, as in "stinker-belle".
Say it out loud, you'll get it.

Some of y'all met her at the Clayton, OK National a few years back.
She's sitting next to James (our only two legged hooligan).

Hey Eric- for your older doggie- if you already haven't tried a glucosamine supplement- do it. It's amazing how much it helps, with arthritis and stiffness.

Already on it, but she's the one that always got around fine so it's just preventative I guess, Spotty was the one with the real joint issues and the supplement did seem to help.

Here a picture of our first born, Samson. He is a rescue that we adopted in Jan, 2006. He was ~ 6 months old when we got him. According to the vet, he is part chesapeake bay retriever and part pitbull. He's spoiled, but he deserves it because he is amazing with our 1 year old daughter.

And Eric, sorry to hear about your loss, but I am firm believer that they pass away just so we can adopt, love, and spoil another.
