I'll start. I have two dogs.
Foxy is the black border collie. She is a rescue and was abused. We have had her for two years. She is still shy around new people and situations but is loving and affectionate to us.

Toby is a coonhound mix. He too is a rescue. He loves people and is a joy to have around. He is smarter than average. Scarily so at times. He figured out how to open the cupboard door where we kept his treats. so we moved them to the top of the fridge. We caught him pushing the fridge with his front paws. Like a man shaking a vending machine to dislodge a candy bar Toby was trying to shake the treats of of the top of the fridge. they are now stored in a cupboard over the fridge.

Here the two of them relax after a tiring day of playing.
   

Here they are in there safety vests for running around our property.
   

So let's see your dogs.

Phil

Two good looking dogs. Appears they are very happy to be where they are now. Good for you for the rescue.

We don't have any dogs now since our cocker died. The wife said enough is enough.

Over the past 25 years we have owned a sheltie or border collie. For about half of that time we had one of each breed as part of the family.

Here's Max, our sheltie that has been with us about 2 1/2 years. Max is approximately 7 years old and was rescued. We rescued two shelties, Max and Penny, and we had to put her down last year with multiple health problems leading to kidney and liver failure.

Max is seen checking out a new bed that I picked up for him last month. In the second picture he's checking out the softness of the new bed while pawing at my wife.

This is Emma, our 15-year-old Airedale Terrier. She's been with me through good times and bad, never wavering in her unconditional love. She can hardly get around any more and is losing control of her body functions, but I'm not ready to say goodbye to her yet. I still remember her as the fluff ball that I brought home when she was a few weeks old, peeking out of her cardboard box bed.

Here's one of my last, best friend. His adopted name was Dirt. When he showed up at our home he was looking pretty bad with no ID, so after $300 in vet bills he was ours. Later he he was nicknamed Snoopy for his constantly snooping around.

This was taken going into his last winter. He loved the snow.

And here she is again, wondering what this squirmy thing is that's laying on her.

I do not like reading about dogs that were. It brings back far too many memories of loyal 4 footed best friends that I've known. The void never gets filled, only overlooked. Our previous dogs that aren't mentioned here were all Rottweilers. They are more human than people- painful when the leave.

I just took this pic of our 2 dogs.

Star (B&W) had a previous bro' who was a Cane Corso. To see those two play was like watching a battle ship vs PT boat. She being the PT boat. She weighs 50# he weighed 145. She's a terrier mix of some sort.

Her new brother is Shadow. After a rocky start (he had huge shoes to fill in reality and in our hearts) I think they're doing OK now. Now it's like watching 2 PT boats. He's an American Staffordshire terrier.

Both are rescued dogs. We've had both since they were pups, but they are different ages.

Here's Rita, our 5y old lab mix (or so they said). she was a rescue dog, dropped off at a shelter.

she's a "reserve dog" or so they called her (hope that is not offense to anyone) but came from an Aboriginal Reserve.

eats food of the counter, we have to hide our bread, takes stuff outside thru the dog doors when we aren't around, comes in all muddy and runs thru the house, sleeps on the bed, but is great with out kids, comes camping and canoeing with us, so that's all we care about.

Kody is my first dog. He is a hunting machine. I wasn't expecting it, but he's turned out to be a pointing lab.

A guy asked me on another forum if I had a dog. I answered yes, I do. She's a Black Lab mix, and her name is Babe! Smile

Here are a few pictures of Ginger, my 7 year old Weimaraner from this morning's trip to the dog park. She had treed a squirrel and it was difficult to take a decent picture.

I see that Ginger is cleanly shaven...do you test your products on her?
