purebreed dogs range from slightly pretentious to absolutely preposterous
of course if you think our dog is pretentious then we're going to have words
Baxter: Westie, mental but loveable
Yoshi: Sausage dog. I don't normally like that breed but it's adorable and sleeps on my foot.
Benny: Golden retriever. Fucking huge thing and law unto himself but gentle enough when tired.
Marley: Labradoodle. Really stupid which makes no breed-related sense.
Does that mean if we bring Frank you can take him to work?!
Digby - My mate's dog, cocker spaniel, loves chasing a ball more than any other dog I've known, once got stuck high up in a hedge after climbing to get a ball that was thrown in there
Flo - An Otterhound we met at the Kennel Club's Discover Dogs show at Earls Court in November of 2012
Holly and Maisy - Miniature Schnauzers belonging to my sisters old live-in landlady, quite fun as a pair, one jumps over the other pretty regularly
Dixie - A Puggle belonging to an ex-girlfriend, stupid breed but quite a nice dog
Big Zack - RIP not sure what breed he was but he was Monty's best mate when out on walks, the only other dog he ever paid any attention to
Sounds about right
which is a good thing, because as everyone knows dogs are gross and smelly
the lead and bounding over to you and you feel a threat?
IT WAS BITING ME. GET OVER IT PETA.
when it was running full pelt at his own smaller dog and he was certain it was going to attack it. He basically volleyed it in the jaw, snapped its neck instantly. Sounds like an unpleasant event all round.
i thought this was going to be a cute thread
those that look like sharks on a lead - those bull terrier things. OK, I know that in the main they are probably harmless but some of the scumbags that own them have quite clearly trained them to be aggressive.
I do occasionally muse about what I would do if one did attack and I feel pretty confident that I could have one in a fight.
I am emboldened by the information that if you pull a dogs front legs outwards you rip it's heart open. Liggy told me that when I was 14 and I've never had cause to doubt Liggy.
Furthermore you can release a dogs clamped jaws by inserting a lubricated finger into it's anus (that's PROPER last resort obviously.)
Pretty sure he was describing the situation detailed in your second paragraph.
some stupid terrier or something came bounding over to me and my daughter and put it's dirty paws on her coat and left muddy prints. The owners came over all smiles and led the dog away without so much as an apology.
And the other week in the park when having a picnic a dog came wandering over and stuck his filthy nose in some of the food. Again not one word of apology from the owner.
Oh he's just being friendly. Awww bless.
his name is Solo, ironically
Didn't think it was a very common name either...
Alf - Lakeland terrier, clever, brown and black, dude
Ziggy - my Irish setter pup
though as soon as he gets his 12 week vaccination next Tuesday I guess we'll be 'befriending' lots of other dogs in the neighbourhood of which there are many
Also, was thinking of starting a weekly dog thread on here as I see there are many dog owners among us
dogs doggy dog
or maybe tomorrow or sutin I dunno
one, small, stupid, called Maud.
other, slightly larger, bouncier, called Darcy.
They're both shit dogs but I quite like them anyway.
Fin - wheaten terrier
Sonny - wheaten terrier
Frank - mix (small but long gingery colour)
Spike - jack russell
Ollie - cocker poodle thing
Darcy - golden retriever
probably more that i've forgot
bonnie (our 2 year old border collie, thinks she’s bigger than she is, just got chased around the garden by a chicken)
quito, mocha (cousins’ dogs, collie/spaniel and spaniel, if you say either of their names bonnie will explode with excitement – mocha followed my cousins home from school one day and when they found the owners a few weeks later they were told to keep him)
floss, meg, glen, bob (grandparents’ sheepdogs – proper softies, bit of a pack)
radar, callie (from same litter as bonnie (and bob) – ridiculously soppy dogs)
cariad, ruby, ella (dogs we’ve looked after – ella is a blind, deaf, arthritic, diabetic labrador who seemed like she was almost gone two years ago)
barney, albert, smudge, ebony (dog walk regulars, all labradors of some kind)
cooper (friends’ boxer, probably one of my favourite dogs)
He followed them home and hung around their house for a while so they took him in whilst they put up posters and contacted local vets. When the owners did come forward they said they didn't want him. Turns out they'd been given him for a present a few years earlier and didn't know how to look after him. He'd just been tied up in their garden, chewed through the fence one day and ran off.
I hate people like that, don't they know there are dog rescue centres? And who the fuck gives a dog as a present to someone who doesn't want one?
<throws surprise `Get Well Soon` BITT present in the canal>
but it's cats in the canal
dogs can swim
a bad, bad man
Teddy - a scruffy lakeland thing, so called because he looked like one when he was younger.
Joop - a greyhound
my own too Border Collies, Duffy and Piper, a Pekingese called Finn, another Border Collie called Fly, a white one with sheep like fur called Snowball (might actually just be a lamb in disguise?) and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head.
I hate it when people generalize dogs, as if they're all the same.
I am going for lunch with some dogs shortly (but let's not talk any more about my mother, my sister and mother-in-law,shall we?) BADOOMTISH.
I a taking my two for lunch with their favourite friend Nina. Nina is a 3 year old Old English sheepdog (poss crossed with horse). She is about 10 times the size of my puppy and they are devoted to each other <3

Kilo. Fat black Staffie.
Buster and Tia. They're collie crosses as well, brother and sister but you wouldn't know it to look at them.

Hollie, Bertie, Sally and Buster.
great bunch of lads.
Charlie - He's our family dog, a Jack Russell terrier. The oddest dog I've ever met. Hates men with deep voices. Loves attempting to eat my shoe. Has no dog friends.
Bee Bee - My friend's dog. She's a Havanese. Barks a lot. Generally an annoying, if quite cute dog.
Bee Bee - Another friend's dog. Also a Havanese. Much quieter than the other one, though I think she's older.
I've known loads of people's dogs over the years but lots have died recently. Auf wiedersehen to Olga, Anya, Bishop, Shady and Mork.
It's amazing how easy it is to make friends with dogs when you have ice cream in the park.
