    Yes I do keep my Heidi dog close to me. She loves to go for rides! We have had our little girl for about 3 years now. We adopted her from the SPCA and now she is truly a part of the family. She replaced a past little man called Sambo.

    You beat me to it. I have also heard that this is a great read for dog people. Mark spent much time talking about his experience with dogs a little while back.
    It was an interesting listen and a bit out of character for the normal rough edged Levin.

    All the talk of finding homes for abandoned dogs reminds me of these two. They were left on top of a wood pile at my accountant's house when they were under two weeks old. These are the two that survived out of the three that were left. Talk about mean people. They were left there to starve to death. My accountant found them and took them in, adding them to the 4 dogs they already had.

    By the way, Sam is nothing more than a rumor and, no, he doesn't really eat purple flowers. :D

    Here are my two heart-dogs. The one on the left is Parker, who's 12 1/2 and on the right is Sherwood age 4 1/2 . They're both rescued racers and have managed to become the center of my world. Gentle souls the both of them.

    Hoss and Lola

    THEN

    NOW
    Hoss and Lola.JPG


    Brother and Sister Bulldogs who turn 1 this month.

    Hard to tell from the pic above, but Hoss is a lot bigger than his lil' sister, 2 inches taller and 15 lbs heavier, but Lola is the one that snores like a freight train.

    Sunny (the yellow one - our little sunshine) & Nadja (notcha ordinary puppy) - identical twin sisters out of the same litter but different as day & night. Mom was a pure yellow lab and dad was ??? - maybe chow or akita based on the Nadja's coat and curly tail. We got them 11 years ago from the pound at the age of 6 weeks and they are our 'travel doggies'. They go everywhere with us - boating, camping, absolutely everywhere and love playing on our 3 acres. Nadja is the perennial puppy and will never grow up while her sister, Sunny, seems to have the weight of the world on her shoulders and is definitely the 'responsible one' and plays 'Mommy Dog' to her sister. They are definitely our perfect doggies! If my husband could have convinced me, he would have adopted the entire litter but we would have had to get a bigger boat and a bigger rv!:lol:

    Well, I’ll post a picture when I get back home but thought I would share my dog’s story.

    Evidentially he was purchased from a local pet store. However, the owner came back a few months later and said that his girlfriend would not allow him to keep it and wanted a refund. There is nothing wrong with the dog so the pet store refused.

    It was about a month later the owner literally threw him at the morning crew and left.

    I was at the pet store looking for something for the cat when the clerk told me what had happened. They were going to send the dog to the pound so I asked to look at him. The poor thing was so scared of me when we first met he literally pissed himself.

    Now there is nothing that makes me madder than when I see an abused animal. I took him home and (once he got over his fear of me) he has been a great dog for years.

    I can never see why the original owner treated him like that. But I do get peeved sometimes when we are sitting on the couch and I happen to glance at the scar he has just below the eyes running across the bridge of his nose.

    I dont have any pics here so I'll add one when I get home.....

    I got my dog as a Christmas present back in 2001, a Rotty/Shepard mix. He going on 7 this year and to describe him goes like this:

    If you have seen the movie "Over the Hedge" when the dog comes out of the house and gets that big dorky look and goes......"PLAY?" Thats my Max, biggest, baddest dog around and a big ole dork at heart. Wouldnt trade him for anything.

    I almost forgot, I have some pictures of him on my thumbdrive, here you go.

    His name is Hydra, after the Hydra of Greek legend. After all, the Hydra guarded the Golden Fleece and he guards my family.

    (I can never understand how he can sleep like that).
