    ok, so to counter the thread about bassists with cats, who has a dog...or 2 or 3 etc...

    I have 2, Jake and Dixie. Jake is a Black Lab dalmation mutt, and Dixie is a golden retriever.

    Dixie has to be one of the dumbest dogs ever, or at least one with alot of ADD! We have a glass table, and if we put a napkin on it, she jumps up trying to get it in her mouth, she doesn't learn after the first few times then gives up.

    Jake, well, he's 16 so he doesn't do much besides sleep, eat, and go on walks with dixie and I.

    Storm, black lab/chow mix. I've had her for 14 years. She's named after the X Men character. She's too smart for her own good.

    I Have 2 dogs.

    Siberean Husky named Martha, and her son Luke, who is husky/lab mix.

    Martha was in a so called "hit and run" with a chocolate lab one time. haha. the result? 5 husky/lab mixes. Luke is the most lab-like of them all... like.... 99%.

    i love my pooches.

    I have two dogs. A Beagle named Annie (about 7 years old now) and a Lhasa Ahpso named Roxie (about 2 years old).

    Annie is rather lazy and is slightly overweight. She resembles a sausage, but we're working on getting her back into shape. She's very calm and very friendly, albeit a little territorial. She's also a bit... well... dumb. She's gotten her head stuck in various boxes of food, gotten her jaw stuck on the door to her cage, and somehow managed to ger herself locked in my room. I still haven't figured out that last one.

    Roxie is almost like a very vocal, dependent cat. She'll sit on your lap, but only if you pet her. If you don't, she'll refuse to grace you with her presence. She also barks at everything- including me. The only thing she doesn't bark at is my father, who is her true master. She clings to him like glue.

    I have a - very large - aka fat - golden retriever that is my best bud in the world - named Sammy.
  11. I love dogs, but they're just so high maintenance. I prefer cats anyway.

    Dogs RULE! Me and the girl used to have a shepard that would come onstage and crash in front of her fender twin. We are down to one dog now - hopin' for another pound shepard in July.

    We also have two cats. Used to have five and that was a bit much. Two and two is good.

    Ryco's good dog theorum: They're dogs, and they're good; therefore = goo' dogs!
  14. zomg because I can.
  15. this is me sleeping on the couch with my dogs like... 5ish years ago. i was 13 and still had glasses! :meh:

    see what i mean by 99% lab? the only thing that i can really tell is that his snout is slightly longer and thinner than a pure lab's. plus, he has the mentality and vocals of a husky. haha.

    Attached Files:

  16. I guess I qualify as 'ambi-pets-terous' - I have both; Two kitties - Zoe and Oscar - and one Chow/Shepherd mix, Ziggy.

    Recently gone are my black lab mutt of 14 years, Hershey and my black-as-midnight kitty, Jaco.

    So call me non-commital, a waffler, a glutton for furry love... but I dig all my four-legged critters.

    Sorry bud, my doggy recently died. It was hard, we had to put her down: brain tumor.

    Life does go on though.

    I still miss her though

    On a lighter note, 2 mutts 1 is a barrel with legs,

    the other a black lab mix she has:
    1.managed to climb the fence at the pound and get out.
    2. tear through the screen on our second story window at our old house. Jumped through. She was completely un-harmed.
    3. walked through an electric fence (not the cheap kind either)
    4. been a pain in the arse.

    Usually, when someone says they don't like dogs, or they hate dogs, it usually means they're afraid of them. I have a friend who is just that way. He's even afraid of his family's Yorkie...

    Anyway, no pics any time soon, but at my place we've got two dachshunds and a Jack Russell at home.
