What Kind Of Dog Do You Have?

I will start this off by saying our black lab (Princess) passed away earlier this week (11 years old). I also have a great dane/Rotweiler mix (Laila) 17 months old. Losing Princess was tough on the family she was agreat dog. Laila is really missing Princess and doesn't like to be alone. We are looking for a new puppy, wife is dead set on another lab. I love labs and have owned several over the years. I like to switch things up, so I have been looking at all different breeds/mixes, etc..

Anyway, I was just curious of what you guys had, post a picture of your little hairy pal.

Here's Laila:

Royce, you might want to consider the PWD Portugese Water Dog My sister in Denver breeds and raises and shows them. They dont shed, very very good house dogs, love to run outside and love water. Im impressed with the ones Ive seen that she raised. Just an idea for you

Re: What Kind Of Dog Do You Have?

Had my sheep dog pass on in my arms Royce... Pets are like family members and hard to loose them...

I'm really fond of Boxers, had a Sheep Dog, a Boxer mix and a Springer Spaniel over my adult years. Family dogs as a kid growing up were a Dachshund and a Carnie Terrier...

If you and the family can break away from the pure bread dogs I would suggest getting a shelter pup and keep one from being put to sleep. You can find a great friend at the pound or humane society, just be very alert for abused dogs as you don't want one with mental issues...

If the Boss wants another lab. Get another lab.

Re: What Kind Of Dog Do You Have?

I don't know what's up with photobucket, I had to sign up for another service to post that picture of Laila.

I am not stuck on any breed, pure or not. I like mixed dogs just as well. I do want a large male dog. Laila is gong to be 100+lbs when she fills out. I was looking at a Dane/English Mastiff mix, has similar colors to Laila.

Re: What Kind Of Dog Do You Have?

I don't have a dog yet-due to my work schedule I just can't leave a dog alone at the house for 16-17 hours a day. I thought about getting one and bringing it out to job sites in my truck but there are liabilities to that.

However, when I do get a dog I'll try to find a black lab at a shelter. Well any breed will do, really.

My brother has had a black lab for 6 or 7 years and picked up a dachsund/lab/basset mix a couple of years ago at the pound.....you oughta see this dog-talk about loving people and attention. You can tell she is happy to be in a loving home, she just goes nuts if people are around. It's really something to see, I'm sure she had been mistreated before she got to the pound. It's like she shows her thanks by giving you attention 24/7, very cool.

Re: What Kind Of Dog Do You Have?

I haven't had a dog for years because my work demanded frequent travel. My last dog was a Siberian Husky. High energy and independant. Not a sit in your lap kind of dog - just wanted to run.

My neighbor has two dogs she rescued from the SPCA. Now that we've cut back on travel (I work from home) we put a gate in the fence between our houses and they come over during the day and visit. Nice arrangement, I'd guess kinda like having grandkids. They are very good dogs, one a terrier mix, Bell, and the other a lab mix, Fin. We think Fin had a hard life BD (Before Dianne) and now is just so grateful for where he is. Very sweet.

I'd recommend visiting the local SPCA a few times. You might just find your next family member...

We have an English Setter for the second time. They are great dogs, very friendly. I've had bird dogs since I was twelve years old.

Re: What Kind Of Dog Do You Have?

Goofball... I mean Ollie. He's 2 and he thinks he's a cat I swear.
Purebred Golden Retriever. They're not the smartest of the bunch, but they're great family pets... if you like cats.

Our last dog Zeb was a Shepard and I wanted another. I didn't have much say when Goofy came along. Now the wife is looking for a rescue to keep this one company.
