I’m 5 months into owning my first dog.



He’s the most handsome a Labrador you could imagine.

I have a limited choice in dogs because I'm allergic and my missus won't have a dog she can't physically control and since she's 5 foot 2, that shrinks the numbers down.

But we're likely to get a Westie and a Cairn, even though I want a Patterdale because they're f**king awesome.

This is not my dog, but the only dog I've owned was an Australian Red cattle dog named --very unoriginally-- "Bluey". I thought it was clever at the time but later learned that it's a very common name for them.

I had Boxers, but, when the last one I had died of Cancer aged five and a half years old, it finished me. Couldn`t put up with the upset like that again.

I grew up with Collies and Collie-Crosses, family now has an Aussie Shepherd which is a great looking and fun dog just a bit thick compared to Collies.

I want a dog but unfair when both me and the other half are away with work so often and we don't have a garden to let it run around.

We have a Springer/Beagle cross female who is 20kg+ of unrelenting energy and another male beagle cross who is 12kg of put upon sad sackedness. Awesome dogs if you've got the time for them but as stubborn as anything

They say you can tell the owner from the type of dog they have.

Sure. All the owners round me must be the type that sh1t on the pavement.

TBH I’d ban pet dogs. Working dogs only. Or at least no pet dogs in towns and cities.

I have a rescue beagle-terrier cross (probably a Jackabee).

Pretty lazy one moment, overly excitable the next. Very loving and loyal, yet if I would take off his lead in the woods I'd be waiting a long time for him to come back.

Stubborn and independent, very cute, loves his food, very intelligent, enjoys a lie in.


Yep, we are pretty similar. :thumbup:

You’re meant to train the dog to obey commands not be wrestled with.

Up here in Edinburgh there are thousands of dogs owners and more turds left on the street by homeless people and dogs.

Got what we're told is a retriever cross, we strongly suspect crossed with a maremma. Though the more I look at maremma photos, the more I suspect he's just a maremma. This isn't him, but looks damn similar.

Image

11.5 years old now, 45kg, and spends most his time asleep in my garden office/shed thing. Used to just pretend to be deaf, now he actually is.

This pretty much describes him and his obedience training perfectly.

Identical to this beauty. 3 years old next week. Astonishingly fast and graceful and a beautiful nature.

Brave choice.

They somehow tend to make their owners go blind. :|




Jack Russell for me. Awesome, great, super..... you name a positive adjective and he's all that and more.

She's fine - just got some pups a few months back. In mourning for the All Blacks result, bless her American hat.

We had a saluki growing up. Thick as pig-shit - walked into the glass patio door at least twice every day - mostly just wanted to sleep on the sofa. Got more fun out of the cats.

She is a decent pedigree and if the apocalypse happened I might sleep with her. She looks exactly like this so you can see where so am coming from

Met a 3 year old Staffie in the pub the other day. She was an absolute tart, would go to anyone who offered to rub her belly and turn on the sad puppy eyes if you stopped for a second. They're lovely animals but masters of emotional blackmail.

I have two border collies on the farm, crossed at some stage with a Welsh black and tan. Loyal to a fault.
