We have the cat room, and while I am an avid cat person, I do also love my pup. I am sure that many of you have a beloved canine and I would love to see some pics and hear some stories.

I wonder why this thread hasn't been started before? Maybe someone did and it just fell away, but I think it's time for another try.

I guess I should get things started...

This is my dog Bodhidarma (Bodhi for short) As far as I can tell he is a yellow lab/Akita mix. He is the sweetest dog I have ever known and is a big couch potato.

http://photos-b-9.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v261/232/20/1377893617/a1377893617_30042833_4443.jpg

We adopted him from a shelter and he had been abused by someone because he was very skittish and would cower when you tried to pet him. I am happy to report that in the 2 and a half years that we have had him he has come out of shell and is loving life (on the couch).

http://photos-g-4.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs185.snc1/6168_1194139578471_1377893617_30524246_5264597_a.jpg

The vet estimated his age at about 3 when we got him, so that makes him 5 years old now. He is henpecked by the cats, but he only lets them push him around so far before he gives a warning growl.

http://photos-a-4.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs165.snc1/6168_1194139978481_1377893617_30524256_5458417_a.jpg

As you can see he' pretty laid back. He barks a good bark, but attack dog he's not.

My couch potato dog and the Queen of the house, who deigned to let him sleep next to her.

So who else? A2K can't be all cat people.

aawww Bodhi is cute and he looks like a very pampered and spoiled baby.

We lost our beloved Max in June, he was 15 years old. We miss him dearly
but always have room for more, so today we adopted another dog "Lilly"
from the animal shelter. We'll get her tomorrow after being spayed and
checked over. Can't wait!! I'll post pictures of Lilly then Smile

In the meantime, here is a picture of old Max , sitting up and begging for food
which was his favorite past time...

Sorry to hear about your loss, CJ. I'm glad y'all are opening your home to another needy pup!

What a character, Robert! Did you teach that or is it something he just did one day?

Here is our new dog, Lilly. We got her from the shelter today !
They spayed her in the morning, so she's a bit under the weather. Such a sweet
dog though...

Yes, she is cute and a lot younger than we originally thought. Probably just
8 to 10 months old and into everything that moves and shakes.
She's a lot of fun!

@CalamityJane,
oh my! that is one getting into trouble face

She is a pretty girlDog.

There are two dogs sharing the house with us. We're lucky they let us stay with them. The camera's charging now - there should be a few good pix in there (though I have literally mmmmmmmmmm hundreds of both Bailey and Miss Cleo over the years).

@ehBeth,
Yes, Lilly is a trouble maker. Hard to believe that she ended up at the animal
shelter and no one claimed her - lucky us!

Oh, I always liked the pictures of Cleo and Bailey with their "grandparents".
Post a few of those too, ehbeth.

To explain, Dyslexia and Diane are a2kers that are neighbors and friends. Sally the Dog brought a certain joy to Pacco's life in his last years.

aawww look at all those lovely dog pictures. Pacco was a great dog and he
obviously took a liking to Sally right away.
Oh and Timber with his dog, that's nice of you to post that one, osso.

Dys, Sally adapted really well to Dante, didn't she? Precious picture!
