The big guy is Petey, aka Sir Poops-a-Lot, and that's his little sister, Hurricane Lily. She has left a swath of destruction, but she sure is adorable.

Yeah, that's his constant face.  He never gives you "joy".  Even belly rubs he just has this 1000-yard stare.

Lucy (Short for Lucifer)

We've had her for about a month.  Now that she's comfortable in her new home, she's turned to a life of crime.   She loves to steal our clothes out of the laundry basket and leave them in every room in the house.

This is the late, great Mishka.
img.fark.netView Full Size

She had the distinction in her life of being the boss dog in my neighborhood.  A benevolent dictator, as it were, even though her subjects were all separated from her by chainlink fence.  The main thing about Mishka as alpha was that she did not like barking (huskies may be vocal, but barking specifically they don't do so much generally).  So if you barked, it had best be important or she would give you the stare of shame.  It was nice as it kept things fairly quiet.  The postal carrier loved it.  It's an old neighborhood where door to door mail delivery on foot happens.

Anyway, she loved to play with the other dogs just running up and down the fence.  Frequently I'd catch her napping next to a neighbor dog with just the fence separating.  The other dogs also paid her tribute.  I frequently would come home to new toys showing up in the yard.  These were from the dog behind.  I'd throw them back over the fence and they would be back in my yard the next day.  I made sure it wasn't the neighbors themselves.

There was a set of plush animals with squeakers that show up.  Mishka did not like things that squeaked.  Toys or animals.  So in the case of these two toys, she had to stop the squeaking so she could play with them.  I came home one day to find each of the two toys had single incisions and their squeakers removed.  It was this variety.

I kept them because I knew it was a reliable way to get the dogs attention anytime.  I still have them and continue to use them to annoy the two dogs I've had since.

Mable, my 4 yr old Humane Society rescue. Tells me that I need to use my Tilite instead of the powerchair - by not moving her ass out of the powerchair.

She also can tell when my anxiety or blood pressure changes. She'll come over knock whatever I am holding out of by hands and turn on the purr box and groom my head till I settle down.

Our first dog -- back in the 70s -- was a hybrid hardy** monster. He'd eat anything. Once, in the days before leash laws, I was out walking him late in the day on Thanksgiving. People had already finished the feast and started their clean up. Mammoth (let's call him) espied a turkey carcass sitting on top of someone's garbage can and bolted for it. He snatched it from the can and went under an enormous holly tree to eat it. I kept calling his name, fearing the worst from splintering turkey bones, begging him to stop. Mammoth never dropped the turkey, but chewed and rotated it in his mouth. He looked like a juggler doing one of those three cigar box routines. In around 90 seconds he'd eaten the entire carcass and we resumed our walk.

He was no therapy dog and, due to his size, was constantly trying Alpha Dog challenges. Until the day a farm truck briefly stopped outside our house with a mastiff in the bed of the truck. The mastiff saw Mammoth and woofed. The woof was twice as loud and several octaves below what Mammoth could produce, and he immediately collapsed. Literally, all four legs gave out and he landed splay-legged on the ground. The truck moved off before M could get back on his feet and all he saw were the tail lights of the truck.  From that day until the day he died, he checked out the bed of every truck we passed. I think the mastiff's "woof" could be translated into the dog equivalent of "Moses, take off your shoes."


**as a joke, I wanted to say "hearty" but Farkers would only nitpick.

Nice!  We're hoping to have Hope train to be a therapy dog, since my wife is a therapist.

Suzy was the easiest dog I have ever been around. We adopted her when she was about 5. The only thing we taught her was to stop at the curb and she couldn't proceed out into the street until we gave the OK.

She didn't lick or jump on anyone. She was so well behaved. And the quietest dog, especially considering she was part Beagle. She also had some Australian Cattle Dog in her.

I miss her.

They are basenjis, the "barkless dog". They're an ancient breed (pics of b's on 3000 year old Egyptian steles).   They're used as hunting dogs in Africa today. I rescued and fostered b's for 10 years.

They look cute,  yeah, and they really don't bark - they do a kind of strangled howl we call a baroo as well as every other sound a dog makes except barking.  They cannot bark, actually, their throats are structured closer to wolves than dogs. But I don't recommend the breed to just anyone; it takes a special kind of insane to live with a b. They're smarter than you are, and persistent as hell. They're blazingly fast sighthounds and have incredible prey drives (they will chase anything that moves,  often forgetting things like roads,  cars, etc. They fear NOTHING. And they're massively destructive if they're left alone and bored (a 12 lb female i fostered took a full sofa down to wood, metal, cloth shreds and fluff in under two hours. The. Whole. Couch.) They don't listen, they're not easy to train (more like they train you), and the best description I've ever heard is "it's a cat wearing a dog suit,  right?"

But if you're willing to take the responsibility, they're great dogs. They are very loyal to their family, inquisitive as anything and always ready to play. The Basenji 500 is fun to watch even if you're Turn 3...for some reason only understood by b's they like to chase each other all around the house at least once a night. They will amaze you with their creativity (I have watched two of them work together to defeat a baby latch on the pantry door - one held the door open with his nose while the other popped the push latch keeping the door from opening). I have those two,  and I've had up to five at a time with fosters.

Guess which one my then 5 year old daughter named.

That's right,  Khufu.

Wow! That is a handful. My friend just adopted this little guy which we thought was a red-nosed pit, but now we're starting to wonder if he's mixed with something. We'll find out more as he grows.

This is Dude, 1/17/1988-1/17/2001. He was a damn fine dog.
He was very protective of me. He wouldn't let anyone get between him and me.
But he loved kids. I worried about how he would act around small humans until my husband's friend's family came to visit. The three year old grabbed him by the fur on the sides of his face, rubbed his nose against the dog's, and said, "You're such a cute puppy!" (85 lb. Chow) I thought I was going to have a heart attack. He pulled on his ears, rode him around the living room, grabbed him by the neck and wrestled with him on the floor, etc. Dude just licked his face and played along.
