    Bailey sleeps like that too... one thing that's a positive about that is it means he feel safe and comfortable since that's such a vulnerable position.

    There's an ad that's been running lately for a animal rescue organization (ASPCA I think)... I just about cry every time it's on just seeing those abused animals. I try not to watch when it comes on but it's like I feel compelled to and then I just call my 2 over and hug them. So glad you made his life so much better (and vice versa :grin:)

    What a cutey! I don't understand how anyone can look into the face of an animal - dog, cat, bird, whatever - and still be mean to it!

    Ours both sleep like that, too - upside-down doggies!

    Both my dog and the in-laws dog sleep like that. We just explain it away as the switch in their brains in in the off position. Dogs are awesome.

    I love Doxies, great picture of a great dog.
    6" tall with an a heart as big a north america.

    My wife and I had to long hair minies before the kids came.
    We always told ourselves we would get two more when the babies were out of diapers.
    Well they are, and now we can't find a breeder close to us (Boston area).
    Anybody know somebody?

    This is Toby, he is a Weimaraner and a little bigger than normal Weims. These guys are super smart and high strung. He is such a cool dog.

    Great pics, thanks for sharing.

    The 3rd shot looks like you interupted his show. I'm sure he's into Animal Planet HD. :)

    No, we waited till he was asleep on the couch (where he is not supposed to be), and then knocked on the table to make him jump so we could take the picture.

    I do not have any pictures on me, but wanted to post to the thread as well. My avatar is Mia, she is now an 8 year old tawny briard and getting her is one of the smartest things I have ever done.

    Few things can bring one more happiness and enjoyment than a dog, but everyone here definitely knows that.

    I'll have to go digging (sorry, couldn't resist) for a picture at some point. We have a beagle - Daisy. Great dog. Fantastic with the kids - including the two that came along after we got her. She also has the best temperament - anything that walks into the house on two legs will instantly be her best friend. My favorite story with her, though, happened during a party we had.

    After most people left, my brother with his 2 kids, and one other friend with his daughter (all were toddlers at this point) hung out later. It was a nice afternoon so we went out into the yard. So she wouldn't trip up the kids, we tied Daisy to a tree (with a really long lead) on the other side of the yard. My friend's daughter loves dogs. At one point Daisy was just sitting, staring at something in one of the trees (probably a bird or squirrel - she was bred to hunt afterall). My friend's daughter, came up behind her. We didn't see her wander over to Daisy, and Daisy never saw her coming. She went right up behind daisy, and just petted her tail.

    Daisy was clearly surprised, jumped up, turned around, and assessed the situation. You could almost hear the wheels turning in her head. She looked up at my friend's daughter, and poised to jump. My only thougt was "oh no! Daisy's going to bite her!" No idea why I thought that - she's the sweetest dog in the world. I was wrong. Daisy jumped alright - she jumped up, licked her on the face, came back down wagged her tail, and turned back around to go back to what she was looking at in the tree.

    We were really chearing for Uno at the Westminster Dog Show this year (as was everyone in the crowd), and I was really glad to see him win. But given some of the 'features' of the breed, I really hope people don't just go adopting beagles without researching them first. Yes they're very sweet dogs, and they LOVE people. But they also howl (I loved when Uno brayed at the judge when he won - typical beagle), dig, chase things, roll in stuff they shouldn't, and they'll take off at the drop of a hat. Also, as the breeder we bought Daisy from told us, for the first 12 - 14 months of life they're utterly insane. They get into everything, and just like to get into trouble.

    Good picture. Do you compete in the trials? Both of mine wear the Doggles for UV protection as I take them out in the boat all the time, the sand here is pure white, and I don't want them developing cataracs.
