The Dog Thread

Recommended Posts

We need a dog thread. Please feel free to add as you see fit.

New dogs, old dogs, dogs with tractors, whatever. Pictures are encouraged!

 

I'll start. The first is our ~9 year old Australian Cattle dog-Corgi mix. She's her Momma's girl. My wife adopted her when she was single and she knows her job -protect the family. She's fiercely protective of both my wife and daughter. Put a new knee ligament in her last winter. She slipped in the icy tractor tracks in the yard in January last year and ruptured her equivalent of an ACL. It was a long 6-month recovery; she was pretty much crated to keep her off it. She seems good as new now though. She loves those balls the most, she can run and jump again after the surgery, and she'll chase that thing for hours.

The second is my English Setter. He is the puppy of another bird dog in the family. He's a sweet dog and hardwired for birds. This dog puts in miles every day. He's dad's boy and he's two separate dogs indoors and outdoors. Indoors he likes to be in the quietest room and only cares about being petted. Outdoors, he couldn't care less about affection. All he wants to do outside is run and chase birds.

Daks, aka sharkie. He’s my buddy. As I look through my pictures he’s in 80% of them somewhere. Kinda like where’s Waldo. He never goes to far from me or whatever I’m driving.

That pictures brings back memories. My dad had a Manchester Terrier, Boots. When my wife and I had our first we'd visit my parents and the baby would get laid on their bed to sleep and Boots would curl up next to him just like that. Boots would only allow my wife and me in the bedroom as long as the baby was sleeping. She was dad's life long buddy and even he wasn't allowed near my oldest son as he slept!

This is our golden retriever named Hydro. My wife always wanted a Golden and I was putting it off because I didn’t think it was fair for him to be by himself till we get home from work but a her sister had a friend that knew of someone that wanted to give away their 8 month old golden because their daughter all of a sudden didn’t have time for him so we went to see him and that was it, he was coming home with us! He is gonna be 3 on July 12th. My wife came up with the name because we have two gold demo tractors and they are both hydros so that’s what she wanted to name him and I said sounds good to me! He is a blessing to have and we love him to pieces! And he loves ice cream!!

More of my heeler. I caught him with his dolly. And third  is his groundhog kill. Amazed me how fast he was and how quick he put that mean looking thing down. Heelers are super strong in there neck. Good boy

I just love heelers! never knew one before I met my wife. They are fantastic dogs. Ours loves toys too. Maybe that's a heeler thing. The setter will play with one every now and then.

Top picture when she was a few years old. Bottom probably 2 or 3 years ago. She loved to check cows and would chase a ball for hours.

This is Nicky, she is 15 months old now, she’s comes from a lab/pit mother and St. Bernard father, she’s a great dog. 

I have seen many videos of the crazy reactions of dogs being reunited with long lost owners, Nicky acts like that every night I come home, she’s an amusing companion

My son named the dark brown one "Fruity" he's a boxer chocolate lab mix. He's a great dog and starts whining every time I mention going over to the farm. He loves all the snacks the cows leave around!

The light brown dog is a lab mix of some kind, she's a good dog but is a little too much in your face sometimes.

Cat showed up one day and after the dogs got used to it they hang out together.

This is Leroy. Had him since he was 8 weeks old. he was a rescue from the spca. Turned out to be a great cow dog without any training and loyal friend. Was always ready for long days in the combine and pickup or walking pasture and pushing cows. Lost him in February of last year after 12 years.

Here's my entry. Name is Ike. Definition of a rescue dog.

February 2014 was a brutally cold one. (The entire winter was cold and snowy) i was at my parents house. I walked out of their house and here he was hiding in their garage. At first i figured he was a runaway, but as I was going to go feed cattle he kept running ahead of me and then would sit down in my path, i would walk past and the process would repeat until I would give him attention. Very friendly dog but you could tell he was afraid. 

Followed his tracks in the snow down the road a little bit and saw where a car had pulled over and dropped the poor guy and left:angry:. (Knew he didn't belong to any of the neighbors to have wondered over) I couldn't just leave him out there like that so i took him in. Been my mischievous dog ever since. Don't know why he was dropped. Took him to the vet and he's extremely healthy.

And now for Foxy, Roxie, and Wrangler. Foxy, the white one is mom. The other two are her pups. All three were rescued at the same time. They had been abandoned on a acerage. They were living in a pile of junk tires and under a school bus seat. Rescued Foxy and Roxie first. Took them with us immediately. This was a Friday. Wife decides she wants pictures to go with their story. Go back Sunday and Wrangler runs across the yard. The place had been used as a salvage yard. Some guys their getting metal said 4 pups. One died earlier they'd buried already. One died while we were there. And they claimed they caught one and took it to a shelter. And the one we got made four. Well Sunday told a different story. Anyway we chased him for an hour and a half. In and out of the tire piles. He hid under the abandoned trailer house to. Anyway they are family now.

One more tidbit to share. Before the people left they took a shot at Foxy. She was pregnant at the time. Shattered her right rear knee. So she nursed puppies and nursed a wounded knee. There's a few people on her that know me on a personal level. And they know I'm not a violent person. But I'm glad I don't know who they are or where they are if they treat animals like that.

My wife’s German Shepard husky, Willow. Apparently when you tell the dog to sit, and she decides to be a smart ass!8A91DB7E-52C4-4015-B393-62F43280FA85.thumb.jpeg.36199c4d8dceae4bf0d6b6dff8842460.jpeg

This was today at 22 below wind chill, maybe she had a brain freeze?!
