Snowy on her morning walk across the road from us.
She seems to be the happiest dog, but I'll bet she is happiest of all outside, out from under all those cats. But when with the cats it seems she is also the most patient of dogs. I'm not a "dog person", 90% because of allergies, but I'd sure like to meet her.

Those who have had a pet will know that a home is not a home without one. At first I thought I could not have another but there was something missing in my life and when I meet this little ball of fluff, how could I resist
hi all! to my first pets post on nGEC I attach one of the last photos of our old doggy: Blöki or Sárgakutya (Yellowdog) as grandpa called him. he is about 20 years old, totally deaf, seeing only light and shadow and since last winter as he started to drag his back legs he prefers eating in sitting style. kind old fellow of all the family.
Due to the adorableness factor, I am posting dogs that are not my pets. Thanks to Stray Aid in Coxhoe, UK, they are being cared for after being found wandering under a sea tunnel together Hartlepool. That's Glenn on the left, the blind one, and Buzz on the right. They are approximately 9-10 years old, and how they could have been abandoned is beyond me.
They must be re-homed as a pair, because they are inseparable and have been through a lot together. Staff at the rescue center said that if they're separated, they cry and bark until reunited. The center has received over 20 calls about them already, an unusually high number compared with most of their canine guests. I don't know where a sea tunnel would be, but I've placemarked Hartlepool. Coxhoe is to the west a short distance, in case you want to stop in and adopt them.
(That's weird - Gyazo captured my pointer action as well as the screen grab.)
I'd like to introduce the newest member of our family - 7 week old Diesel.
He's actually my daughters new pooch, but guess where he's staying for a while
Here they are together, with Diesel napping on her lap. This was within 15 minutes of arriving at home. Won't be long before he's Kenzo's size, Carmedic.
During the video, my dogs Herk, Gunner and the General were sequestered to the yard, as they view this newcomer as a mobile chewtoy rather than a canine cousin. And speaking of mobile, the media quality on the vid and pic are pretty horrendous, as my G-S6 lost a dogfight with the aforementioned Herk, so I had to whip out the ol' retired phone.
Wow, your daugther is very pretty (no pedo, I'm 24)
You're closer in age than you think. And yes, she is definitely the beauty queen of whatever room she walks into. Most fathers find the situation a nightmare, however I actually embrace the "greeting new suitors" routine with a twisted eagerness as I love to watch them squirm with palm drenching sweat and stomach churning nervousness as I dutifully lay down the rules of engagement. It's the little things in life... BTW, that is one nice looking feline, Ndrq.
And getting back on topic myself - Diane - yes, Diesel is certainly a fluffy-bunny/kitty killing machine, but with all of his piss-and-vinegar rambunctiousness and raw energy, I've finally found a way to tame the canine shrew...
Another quality disclaimer; I have not yet replaced my Galaxy, so the vid quality (and we won't even discuss the fact that it's wedged between my legs while recording) pretty much sucks. And speaking of sucks...I ain't no Peanuts' Beethoven, so my arrangement of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man" needs a bit of work.
NOTE - Youtube is busting my stones on this one, and the video processing process is taking an exceedingly long time. I'll check back in later to see if it ever finishes.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more, Or close the wall up with our English dead! In peace there's nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility, But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger: Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, Disguise fair nature with hard-favored rage; Then lend the eye a terrible aspect: FUAS! :/
That's cute, Barn, and a very unusual looking dog! Quite a combo of genes in that boy. I drove up to a dog park with my grandson yesterday and this adorable boxer found me. He stared at me and didn't stop until I drove away. I happen to love boxers, so maybe he just knew...
Awww, look at that face!
