I was just reading the thread on English Mastiffs ,they seem an unusual breed, at least there are none around here.

I have English Staffy bitch..a lovely dog, almost overwhelmingly affectionate ,jet black ,good with children and fairly stupid ( which I regard as a positive) smile.gif How about the rest of us ?

Yellow Lab mixed with a bit of Duck Toller, still puppy-stupid but cute enough to get away with it. :D

Actually, Webster is a Newlabweiller.
Mudd (Now deceased) was probably part Mastiff according to the vet. Head like a concrete block, feet the size of NYC bagels, and the sweetest temperment you could ask for (especially considering he weighed about 135, and had teeth the size of my thumb).

First dog...Oarsman of Murrey Hill Farm..Yorkshire UK..Blond golden...lived until he was 14.
Followed by a stray literally...Black, didn't bark except on New Years. Hound dog in based on that alone. Smart but hated the water.
From Texas...perhaps that's why.

A tricolor rough Collie. His name is Merlin, and he will be 12 on January 9th. Previous to that I had three collies, a sable, a tri, and a canadian champion blue merle. Lady, T.C and Graham. The sable was a three legged rescue from the pound. Before that, I had an Afghan Hound, who was also a show dog.

As a kid, we had Dachshunds. One tan, and One black and tan. I'd never be without a dog.

Pulik (5) and 2 litters along the way

Tea cup poodle (1)

Bedlington terrier (1)

Afghan hound (1)

I think that was all.

A wire-haired fox terrier and a yellow lab:


That's actually his sire in the photo, but they're indistinguishable...

Current family mutts: a retired greyhound and a one-eyed rescued pug.

A long string of dogs throughout my life, but the good ones from the past have been a lab, an airedale, a newfie, an English springer, and a scottie. The best-no-contest-no-way? Bernese Mountain Dog!

There've been others. Can't seem to stay loyal to a breed, I guess, but I may have to have another BND before I die.

3 year old weimaraner, Caffrey.


She's currently been promoted from house pest to Gordon's best friend. So I guess her stock is pretty solid.

Well since we are posting photos I figured this one would be appropriate about now.


And Bandit

Jeezuz Joe, I thought you were putting Lucky on a diet! Sooee! How bout that Bernese Mountain Dog, Kermit? They sure are pretty but how are they temperamentally?

All labs, all the time, here.

VS. 25 pounds of shed fur..... Yup I'd say Lucky came out of that about 2 pounds 3 ounces lighter! :D ;) tongue.gif

Yeah, Jack. After reading your posts regarding a new dog, a Greyhound would make you a very nice companion. In may respects, they are alot like large cats. They are happy sleeping(inside) all day and maybe going for a walk once or twice. Very gentle and low maintenence animals for the most part.
Becuase they are associated with running, many people think of them as high-strung dogs, but that is really not a trait of this breed. Most dogs come off the track at 2-4 years of age, and most off the "puppy" is gone from them.

FYI, most GH rescue groups will not adopt out an animimal to a house that doesn't have a fenced in back yard. Don't know if you have a fenced in BY or not??

Second post; sorry.

Maureen was out playing with the dog an hour ago and took the photo below. Or daughter plays soccer, so it is inevitable that the dog does, too. However, by the look she is giving Maureen I think that Caramel has become a bit more competitive than we have. I wonder if Gwyn looks as fierce to the competition when she is playing the game?

(Actually, Caramel is a sook; she just really likes to play "I got the ball". She'll step away on command, but not when the game is "on")

Two things. I don't have a fenced yard, and I think a Greyhound wouldn't fare too well when it's twenty below here. :eek:

I've met them before, and they are sweethearts. Thanks for the suggestion.

I've got a 7 yr old dalmatian (my second - this one is a lover, but they can be 'pushy' with small kids).

Also a 1.5 year old standard poodle. Great dog.... but lots of cutting and grooming.
