Ruger is the black one. Dakota is the brown and black, and Ace is the beagle. Ruger and Dakota are really good dogs. They are a best buds. Ace is a more recent addition and mostly useless but our daughter likes him and he is good with her so he stays. In the pic with Ruger and Dakota on the bales they were up there waiting for more rats to run out of the bales while I was moving them. They were having a blast killing rats and I was having fun watching. They double teamed a coon and all but killed it one day and did the same thing with a coyote once as well. Best dogs I've ever had.

Tucker I lost a few years back. He wouldn't let me out of his sight. Quite a guy.

I sure miss him. Put his pic on my screen saver but couldn't bear to see it every day.

Cinch I got about a year and a half ago. He is still testing me but is my best bud.

Got a few more I will have to find pics of.

Then there's Kita that I also lost awhile back. She was very alfa and intelligent as she seemed to be able to figure things out.

Then there is Sally that is a sweet girl and Cinches playmate. She's a border collie I rescued. 

And last but not least theres Sophie my moms dog the golden doodle. She is little nutty but starting to come around.

Brandy (the smaller red and white) was dumped in our neighborhood in 2009.

A few weeks after she decided to stay at our place she had eight puppies. Reilly is the 3rd from left in litter picture (barely visible). The other 7 all went to good homes.
Reilly (L) and Brandy (R) are shown together at the Tipton Park in 2010 and on a shopping trip to TSC a couple years ago.

Our year old pit mix, Goldie.  Also her best buds, the cats.  The orange cat, a rescue we got two years ago already named Dodge, and Goldie are always picking on each other.  Sure keeps things interesting around the homestead!  We lost Ribbett, a 17 yr old Aussie cattle dog mix, last fall.  He was a rescue as well, he was originally rescued by a cousin of mine who gave him to another cousin when he moved and couldn't have a dog.  Then he adopted us, as my cuz would bring him along whenever he came here, which was at least weekly.  Ribbett would hide under the deck when my cousin left, coming back out as soon as the coast was clear.  Eventually he became ours.  I had him for almost ten years, vet estimated him to be seven when I got him, he lived a long and full life.

I had to laugh about the "dolly" picture as Gus used to carry his Lion King doll around everywhere. It was a sad day when there was nothing left to carry anymore.

The older dog is "Boo"  which we lost at 3 years old to cancer last Aug.,  it was a rough time.

The little "lazy eater"  is his replacement that we got a couple of

weeks ago.

His name is  "Tag"  short for tag-along.

Sam is my 14 year old Tosa rescue.  He was seized from his first owner as a young puppy.

Sam then spent 8-10 months in an Animal Shelter until I adopted him at 19 months of age.  He was a basket case.  The word “Beating” would make him cower instantly.  I only found that out when an insurance adjuster came to look at a wrecked car and I had had Sam less than 72 hours at that point.

I spent the next year and a half getting Sam ready to go to obedience school.  AKA: how to train the owner to operate the dog.

At obedience school Sam showed everyone that “Beating” now means “Sit, Beg, and Catch A Biscuit!”

And many biscuits were consumed by Sam!   Just getting him to “Catch” was a feat due to the optic nerve damage that he suffered from being beaten as a puppy.

 

The second and third pictures were taken this past fall.  I found a pair of stray kittens in the hayloft wedged into a pile of stickered lumber.  The gray kitten went to an employee at another farm and has an amazing human mother and dog sister.

 The black & grey tiger kitten I kept and was smitten by it.  I named her Barley and she took to Sam instantly.  My wife’s two ungrateful cats just hissed and spat at Barley, but Sam was very content to let Barley sleep on top of him.  Barley seemed to prefer that over curling up next to Sam   Maybe she felt safer there.

Unfortunately Barley passed on November 14th, 10 days after I got her.  That was pretty devastating for me.  Funny how 13 ounces of furry fury can work its way into your life.

Thankfully Sam was there for me to give me the unconditional love that only a dog can give.

Sam has been having difficulty getting up from laying down, hence the vest that he was wearing last fall we were picking rocks, so I do not know how much longer I will have this wonderful creature in my life.  But Sam has been truly awesome!!

We've got 8 shelter dog's. All like to do various things from digging out ground moles. George likes to carry rocks he finds out in the field up to the yard and roll them around barking at them. We get meat bones from the local butcher shop once a month for them to knaw around on. They like to take walks back the 3/4 mile lane in the field with one of us driving the golf cart or Kubota rtv.

This is Miss Zoe. She was rescued off the streets of Philadelphia at the age of 8-10 weeks by friends of ours. They had a trip planned for that weekend and asked if we would watch her. In 2 days I fell in love and told them they could not have her back! She loved little kids but hated groundhogs. She’d bring their carcasses up to the kitchen door and demand to bring them inside. She hated rain but loved snow. I spent a year undergoing radiation, Chemo and surgery for Cancer; when I came home from Chemo so zonked out I could only stare at the wall she would curl up next to me with her head on my shoulder. Lost her 3 years ago this Spring – I miss her greatly.

Dreamer was my wife’s dog; when she died 1-1/2 years ago he spent 2 weeks by the kitchen door waiting for her to come back. He helped me get through my grief. Like most rescue dogs he has his little quirks – he doesn’t warm up to people very fast, tends to run upstairs when people visit but will socialize in time. With other dogs he makes friends quickly. My cousin stayed in my carriage house for 2-1/2 months last spring with her 2 dogs and the high point of the day was watching them play.

Over this summer I thought about getting a second dog to keep Dreamer company but was working full-time and wouldn’t have the time to spend with a new dog. When I ‘retired’ (again!) this fall I found Jenny at a local rescue. I told them I would only take her if the two of them got along. After 5 minutes I knew there were no problems! She’s about 3 years old, was found under a porch in Colorado with 10 puppies. All the pups were adopted then she came to me. I’ve never heard her bark but she occasionally gets the hiccups and sometimes has bad dreams.

This is Chloe. She wants to go with me 24/7. She thinks she rules the roost.  She may get a rude awakening in about a month when me and my wife are expecting our first child.

Gus and Cash love fishin'. When someone is lucky enough to reel anything in, got to get it before they do! Son caught about a 10 lb cat one night and the next day had it on a long stringer. It entertained the dogs by swirling the top of the water, they would bail in after it and although never caught it, sure was funny to watch them in the water with the catfish swimming around under them. Drove them nuts!
