    Dogs

    I'm sure we'll find some reason to flame each other (my breed's better'n yours!) but this should be a relatively safe topic.

    I'm just welcoming the latest addition to the pack: a 10-wk old German Wire-Haired Pointer. He joins the old black lab (Jake, what else?), the Brittany (Hemi, my son's dog), and Zippy (wife's chihuahua, a taco-bell dog look-alike).

    As some of you know, I'm dealing wth a lot of personal stress lately. The plan last fall (after I ran over my Yellow Lab - Elwood) was to wait til spring to get a new pup. Well, spring came and I just wasn't up for it. My 25-year-old hunting partner son (AJ) insisted last week I go to look at the Pointer pup. Son is a shrewd cookie. Who can resist a puppy? So, home we came with the new addition.

    I'll tell ya this: it's hard not to be amused at the antics of a puppy. I've laughed more in the last week than I have all winter/spring. What a hoot. We're doing "hunter education" wherein the dog teaches me to let him run birds all over the county and in return, he eats the food which I provide.

    Anyway, what's your current or favorite beastie?

    2 Chihuahuas and 2 Pit Bulls. The Chichi's are my wife's. They aren't the most social animals I have ever encountered, either. The pits are rescues, and one of them is barely a year old. She's still got a lot of puppy in her, which makes her 50lbs seem like a ton. She's a lot of fun, though. They all keep me going day and night.

    At the moment a Pomeranian. We have at one time had a Lab, Scottie and a King Charles Spaniel. All were great dogs. They become like a member of the family. It is hard to lose one.

    We have three. My two daughters dogs, a Maltese/ Fox Terrier mix and a Pekingese/ Poodle mix. Yeah, yeah I know I call them football dogs too but they're my daughters dogs. Mine is an Australian Shepherd/ Collie mix rescued from the pound. I think he may have some wolf in him also. My favorite dog of all time was a German Shorthaired Pointer. He was the smartest dog I had ever seen, a quick learner and loyal to the end.

    Nothing makes me happier than to talk about my dogs...I guess its because im not a Dad yet, but anyway I have two wonderful siberian huskies, and the third dog is a Husky/German Shepherd mix all of them have the best personality's out of any other breed of dog that I have owned. They love the snow and when it gets a little too warm for them they talk a walk down the driveway and lay in the creek.

    Yep, "Cat People". Both of our sons are "Cat People", too. There's safety in numbers.

    BTW...don't most forum users "play" with a mouse?
