Psylence: Magorn: SurelyShirley: We currently have 12 Huskies. All rescues. They probably have been depressed at one point or another in their previous lives, but I'm guessing not around here. Know what you're getting into when you get a dog or two, and choose the breed that works best for your lifestyle, not for your facebook profile pic.
...and yes, we do have the space (20 acres), time (both of us work from home) and means to take care of them.

Maybe you're the right person to ask this to.  T'other day I saw a couple walking a dog that LOOKED like a perfect  husky in shape and coloring, but was fricking HUGE, literally double every dimension on a typical husky, height, width, weight etc and you had this dog. Any idea WTF I was looking at?

Sounds like a Malamute or possibly a Malamute/wolf hybrid.


I've got the same deal with my English Springer Spaniel. Perfect markings, flanges and crest, just twice as large as an ESS is supposed. to be. Groomer suggests some Lab in his background. (It's good for breeders to add some fresh genes to a breed every now and then).

Marcintosh: My dog is a dog.
My dog loves me.
When I come home my dogs are so damn happy they fall over wiggling from joy.
We don't eat much steak
Don't give them any of them fancy ideas either.

2 Boston Terriers, 1 French Bulldog, 1 Mutt
ALL rescues.
you may ask, "why would Bostons and Frenchies need to be rescued?"  I would have no answer for you, but that's the way it is.

Butters would like to make friends.

We debate getting him one, but he generally ignores other dogs outside of giving chase in close quarters.

If my dog were any more spoiled he'd start demanding his own credit card account.  The only thing he gets depressed about is when I am doing something where he is not the center of attention for anything over 5 seconds.

I don't know about depression but my rescued Doberman is an obsessive compulsive attention whore. He will pester us every waking moment to play with him. It doesn't matter how many walks or how long we play with him in the backyard, he will always want more. When whining doesn't work for him anymore he resorts to head butting us.

That would be Robin the Toy Wonder. Or maybe he's just a cranky little runt that sleeps a lot.
The other three seem to be plenty happy.

Our dogs used to sleep in our bed up until my wife's pregnancy.

My bet is on the smaller one in the chair (little beagle mix), seeing as how to this day she likes to sleep UNDER the bed.

Subby's logic about one of your four dogs suffering depression is eerily similar to a schoolyard prank I used to love doing at school.

In a group of four or more people, I would say "Did you know that one of every four people in the world is Chinese?"

Then pointing to people who were obviously white I would go "Well, I'm not, you're not, you're not,... AHA!"

///Disclaimer- this trick doesn't work in a school with significant numbers of students who actually ARE Chinese

Alaskan Malamute or Wolf hybrid?

Solution, bring your dog to work.

abandoned in a backyard, half blind, collar grew into her neck, starved and full of birdshot..
this is the happiest damn dog I've ever had
she doesn't have too much time left, but it's fulla treats and pets.

Newsflash: most dog owners shouldn't have a farking dog

Dog owners are some of the most selfish, self-righteous people I've ever met, almost always to the direct detriment of the animal

/not you, of course

SoundOfOneHandWanking: Solution, bring your dog to work.

/dog currently sitting ON my desk


That's not a solution, fark that. NEVER tolerate a workplace that allows people to bring their pets. It's worse than working with smokers that need to go outside every 15 minutes. Now the employee has to coo the animal, take it for shiats and pisses, give it attention, water it, feed it, and dogs are farking disgusting. It cleans its asshole, penis, nuts or vag with it's tongue, then licks your hands or face, spreading stink, bacteria and hair god knows what else, contaminating anything that may shuffle across your desk to other people.

There's a lot of vanity involved with your kind of behavior. I'm sure you have some circumstance that you'll use to try to use to justify this, but bottom line, unless you're working for a retard, PetCo, or something where they're trying to make a statement, it shows a complete disregard for a sanitary work environment and your coworkers in general.
