I have a rescue American cocker spaniel and she is loyal, gentle, loves playing ball still at nearly 9 years of age and sleeps next to me every night. No barking, easily house trained and so so loving. I'd be lost without her. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1452904313.049399.jpg
Am loving the doggies! We have a big dog who is a bitsa - bull arab cross staffy cross lab (I think!) - and she was bought by DH as a guard dog for his work
And that didn't work out at all! She weighs 45 kg and is THE biggest sook I've ever seen in my life. She thinks she is a tiny dog and belongs on your lap - ummm 45kg of big dog just doesn't fit She loves kids and when we go out to DSSs sporting events we take her with us and little kids crawl all over her and she just loves it, she absolutely adores kids. She's the most gentle dog in the world but her bark is ferocious, and really low and loud.
I was bought up with labs and I love them, such good kids dogs, but agree, crazy for the first couple years, but nothing puppy school won't sort out. I'm of the same thought, all dogs need training. Ours is incredibly well behaved and when I'm out walking I see dogs pulling so hard at their leads that their owner is almost falling over and running to catch up with the dog and that's just not fun.

Not sure if I'm uploading photo properly, but these guys were my besties. We were together 14 years and they have both died a few years ago. I think about them every day!!
we had a miniature foxie when growing. best dog and she was so cute. these days we mostly spend time with a friend's Italian greyhound. he likes 10mins of hyper activity in the morning (&going for walks where he prances mostly rather than walks) then sleeping on your lap or warming your bed under the covers (they were bred as aristocrats bed warmers). there's plenty of greyhounds looking for homes (for a more grown up version)
pets are just the best, we would be so lost without our girl

I can't have a pet as I have to travel so much for work (apart from last year during cycles)
am signed up for my fet cycle. today is day1. so, BTs start in 9 more days. I really hope this is the one and all goes well.
I dont know how to upload photos but we have a maltese ****zu and he is an amazing dog. Gentle and fun but also energetic happy to chase his toy and bring it back. He loves kids. Apart from the bath and x1 evey 2 months hair cut in summer he is easy to look after too
