I've shown him off before, but it's like showing off my Impala, I enjoy it. Hoover's my yellow lab:

He loves to ride in the car. Here he is riding in Betty:

A lady at work raises guide dog puppies. She got her 14th puppy on Wednesday, a fuzzy-soft golden retriever named Gantry. I love having a dog at work.

We used to have a long haired german shepherd, rocky. Great dog, but we had to put him to sleep when his hips went bad after 14 years. Now we have a short haired german shepherd, sharky. She's just over 3 years old now.

I have a beagle that is consistently mistaken for a basset. She is 12 years old and morbidly obese. She barks when someone knocks on our door. She barks when someone knocks on our neighbor's door. She barks when someone knocks on our neighbor's neighbor's door. That freakin' dog barks when anyone anywhere in the 48 contiguous states knocks on someone's door. :banghead:

I have a Zeus. God of all dogs, and worthy of all human adoration. :D He is a bullmastiff mix (probably chow and bullmastiff). His mother was a wonderful, gentle, registered bull mastiff. I had put her to sleep almost a year ago for bone cancer.

Zeus tried to become a "tough guy" several months back when we brought a new baby home. I contemplated getting rid of him, but with with some patience, discipline, time, and retraining we've all adjusted to the changes just fine and things are back to normal. :yup:

I remember you posting about that. I'm glad things worked out well! Mastiffs are usually very people friendly. I imagine he will become very protective as the child grows.

I hope that happens. When the baby is older I will work with her and the dog by having her give him commands to establish her rank in "the pack."

I couldn't agree more with you about Mastiffs and Bull Mastiffs. They're a very gentle and family friendly breed. I believe it's the chow chow in Zeus that makes him "testy" at times.

I believe it's the chow chow in Zeus that makes him "testy" at times.Oh, that explains why his head is so narrow (for a Bull Mastiff that is). The first time I saw a Bull Mastiff was about 20 years ago on a jobsite. One of the guys had a 9 month old puupy in the back of his truck. I didn't know it and when I walked by the 'little' guy raised his head. Huge black face, very calm and gentle but it took me by surprise!

We have one boarder collie/collie mix that we adopted. He came from an abusive house hold (doesnt like anyone play fighting). Also have a black lab/springer spaniel. All black with a white line down her chest. Cant find a small enough pic of her though. fast66 I have to say I love your dog. One day I want a Siberian Huskey with 2 different colored eyes. Though I could go with husky/wolf! Pets are great minus hair! Got to love the companions they turn into. Just a shame whem they pass on.

My grandparents have a Black Lab named Sade. Very affectionate dog, with a great personality. I play with her everytime I go up to see them.

I have three Gordon Setters, and a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.

Gordon Setters are Oscar, Aston and Tam.

The King Charles is named Tasmin, shes the boss of all the guys.

This is Oscar, he is three years old, my other two just look like him so I'll put this one in:

This is Tasmin, shes six years old, and she is the ultimate ruler:

We've had alot of dogs over the years, mostly setters, bu with the odd one thrown in, like we had a Golden Lab that thought it was one of the setters, and a chocolate lab that thought it was alot smaller than it was.

Rolex,
Thought you might enjoy knowing that breeding the Mastiff with a Chow produces a Sharpei. I had one. It was a dog from Hell. Mean bastrd hung himself.

Hey Robert.. My black lab/springer spaniel looks exactly like your. Just has a white stripe on the chest. Funny thing is.. Out of the group he's the smallest. Maybe 2 - 2 1/2' High but very stout.. Well I guess stout isnt the word because its all muscle. Built?

This is Noah - my golden retriever. His dad (Holden) won second place at Westminster in 2002. He's awesome.

BTW, how can I insert a photo inline (in the message itself, rather than an attachment) that is not posted at a URL?

Mack,
BJ is what they call a "Field Lab". They have longer legs and a trimmer body.
They make good hunting dogs and retrievers. BJ will be 2 years old come New Years. Labs are water dogs and even have webbed feet. We got BJ a pool this summer and he loves it!!

Here's my baby! Her name's Sheba and she's a 90lb, 4 year old Shepard/Rottwieler mix. Until recently, we also had a Long-haired Chihuahua named Emilio. He was the best dog except we just couldn't get him to stop peeing in the house. So we found a home for him with a couple who have another small dog w/small bladder.

I know what you mean. Hoover likes to lay on top of me or lean against me when I'm sitting on the couch. He's 70 lbs., too. Labs are such great dogs.

Heres one pic I have of her eyes. They got more distinct as she grew older.

That "field lab" makes me wanna cry. I had one named Daisy. She got bone cancer and died at age 4. Not supposed to happen. So full of life, best canine athlete I've ever seen. Unbelievable stamina.

That's the problem with dogs. They don't live long enough.

Anyway. Enough sadness.

First we have Byron. He's my little buddy. I wonder if he could talk, would he sound like a Scotsman or a cowboy?

Then there's Cotton. Otherwise known as The Cotton Ball. She's a miracle.

Finally, on the far right there's Ben. He's a momma's boy. But he helps me shave. Sometimes he eats turds. He taught Cotton.

BJ never realized that as he got bigger being a lap dog presents some problems. This is BJ in my wife's lap.
