It is said that dogs are men and women's best friend. I know mine are. My avitar is a picture of Smoke, my Black-Tri Aussie during our move to Florida from UpState NY in 2002. I've noticed that so many members here have dogs as their avitars. So let's devote a thread to the praises and pics of our canine companions. Share how you were adopted by these devoted so called animals, how these descedents of wolves stick with us when other humans desert us and other stories about your doggy pal. Only rules 3( for now):1. Canines only. Cats are not allowed, start your own thread. 2. No humans in pics unless accompnied by a canine. 3. Girl/Boy friend jokes not allowed ps. I'm posting this in duress....Smoke is making me do this.......Smoke now can I have my remote!
