    Blue Heeler - neighbor has one of these, she's smart and loves him to death. You don't have to leash her, she won't get more than one house way before she comes back. 45 pounds is a bit much for a lap dog though.

    If you ask the dog, ALL of them are lap dogs.

    other neighbor has a couple of these and all I can say is we don't get along. It is DAMN MEAN to keep these dogs in the city, much less with a tiny little back yard. I can get them to start baying which I tend to do at 3a.m. since they don't mind leaving them out when the other neighbors are having band practice at 10:30p.m. on a weeknight. I get up early - they wake me up in the middle of my night so I help them out with the middle of theirs. Barroooo!!! BarrrrroooooOO!

    They do make a lovely bay. I bet the new baby over there loves it when I get them started up.



    when they moved in I thought they were bassets howling. I think they are Redbones. I climbed up on the truck one day to see, damn, horses!

    I have owned dogs for over 44 years now and they are wonderful friends.

    We started out with German Shepherds and had a few of them along with a Lab.

    The one I have now is a Pit Bull who my son said would only be with us for about one month!!

    We were just going to keep her until her owner found another place to live.

    The owner did come back in one month to pick up the dog but told me she would not be able to keep her and was going to have the dog put to sleep.

    First I have to say I had never owned a pit bull but I had read all the stories in the newspaper or heard on TV about them which scared me about having one.

    Jazz is without question the sweetest dog I have ever owned in my life. She goes the other way if the cat comes near her.

    When guys walk into my shop they see her they ask does she bite and I tell them no but she will lick you to death.

    For anyone considering getting a dog do not be afraid to consider getting a pit bull the are sweet hearts and only 22% of all dog bits are from pit bulls. How ofter to you ever hear of the other 78% of dogs that bite people?

    Jazz is now 14 years old and goes everywhere with me and I don't even want to think about the day when she leaves my side.

    We have hawks that like chickens.. So they are kept penned except last 2 hrs when we can watch them..
    30 is toooo many unless you feed a big family.. My daughter is a family of 4 with 2 banty hens and has eggs out the wazoo..
    I had 20 big ones years ago, kept mom, granny auntie, and my family in eggs and still had some to give away..
    My friend has money to burn, he's retired and it was something to keep him busy. He built a coop, fed them well. He was selling the eggs but I guess it was more then what he wanted to do. The guy who bought them, the neighbor's dog took out 9 of them. It was great getting fresh eggs from him.

    I woulda never been a cat person and I'm still really not, but married a cat person (the second wife). And I won a cat and a 1990 GEO Prizm in that divorce. So there's Frecklee the Cat. I have to say, he was a mighty good cat. He was a great companion when I was single and alone and wondering what I'd do next before I met up with Unit.

    And years after that, Spankie mourned Freck's passing maybe even more than we did. It was awful. He chewed himslef to pieces and his hair never grew back.

    Soozie is our oldest, going to be 15 in Feb. She's a pure bred Astralian shepard. She's starting to go blind, deaf and she's starting to have trouble going up steps

    Nicholson is 13. she's some sort of Spanial mix, she's ok

    Molly...inherited her from my BIL. She's a Border Collie mix. 7 years old dumb as a brick but harmless as a fly and friendly.

    My little girl (she's 22) had one of these for a while, turns out wolves will eat them. Pleasant little dog, the smart ones are always a little high strung.




    Dachshund beagle mix, however you call that. I called it pain in the ass until she got to about a year old. Pretty lovable little critter after that. Dachshund (sp) are kind of "one owner" dogs, but the one she had was multi-owner capable. She was pretty much mine after a weekend. Liked my fat belly.

    pdub, I get the family member. They are.. dang you for making me want one. I love dogs... rescue mutts are the best. My first ex had 3 at any given time, all inches from the gallows. The rougher they looked, the worse they had been treated, the more I seem to like them. Takes a while for the beat down ones to come out of the shell again, but it's worth it. The problem I have is wanting to know who made them skiddish. I want to make those people skiddish...
