This one is poor Chacho,he's already been through 2 previous owners and sadly noone here wants him either EXCEPT for me....I love him, even though he's kinda goofy looking...hehe.....he's the sweetest dog in the world! Sorry I don't really know what he is.....most likely a mix.

and k-mom, I'm sorry to hear about your Belle, it is very sad to lose a pet. How did things go when you met the three dogs?

Then I have Rizzo. No clue what she is. A few speculations, but at this point it doesn't matter. She is a rescue case and is about 5 or 6.
My roommate has a dobie, approx 3 or 4 yrs, named Eve. In the following pic, you see my two, Eve, and Lita. Lita is the border collie mix to the far left. She is about 8 months old and is my foster. She is on petfinder.com but hasn't gotten placed, yet. And yes, this is where they all sleep....with me!
And this is my most recent foster dog, Booger. Blue heeler and about 4 or 5 months old. Smart as a whip and may be going to live with my fellow dog trainer at PETsMART.
I need to get some new pics of him, cause he is ALWAYS smiling now.
I didn't feel so bad, tho, when some nut came in the store last night. He has 22 (yes TWENTY TWO) dachshunds. One in every color and hair type!!! He's only missing a white one. Sheesh.

If you ever decide to post anymore, please do share them with us....afterall we're all crazy about our "children"...hehe.
P.S. Usually all my dogs sleep with me too, my bed's a lot smaller, but then again so are my dogs.

Even though I don't have a dog, a lot of people in my neighborhood do. Next door there's a couple of bulldogs and a black lab mix, and a visiting Westie that pops in every now & then. In just a few blocks are people with Huskies, Greyhounds, Pekes, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Beagles, spaniels, labs, and mutts of all kinds. One woman & her roommate have 4 mixed blend dogs - it's funny when she walks them, they get all tangled up.

My second dog is a Shetland Sheepdog named "Jetz" 'cause he ALWAYS has his 'jets on'. He's a rescue too, bought at 6 wks of age from a backyard breeder, the new owners'son started having violent allergic reactions to him. I work in a pet store and this guy just popped in and asked if we bought dogs, (we don't and never will) so I took him off his hands when he was 8 wks old, now he's 9 months old and if I don't get him fixed this month Dan is going to kill him, if I don't first.
My first dog was a spitz mix named "ChiChi", then came the pugs. "Printz" was first followed by "Kim Su" who electocuted himself by hiding behind a couch and chewing on a cord, he was my baby and I was just a teen, I cried for days.
When I got married my husband and I bought a then unknown breed called The American Eskimo. "Snowy" was a great little apartment dog, never had a day of training but never left the backyard, never barked when someone passed our apt. door unless they stopped at the door. My son and Snowy became the best of friends and I would LOL watching the 2 of them playing in snow, my son, age 3 would fall down and Snowy would plow the snow with her nose until she found him and would dig him out.
My sister is married to a deaf mute and they have owned pugs all their lives. Pugs seem to become natural hearing dogs for the deaf because every one they have ever owned taught itself to alert whenever the door bell rang, the phone rang, the alarm clocked clicked before going off and and would wake my brother-in-law up before the bed would start shaking, and a whole lot of other things hearing dogs had to be taught, but never the pugs.
I left the House of Orange and joined the rebels by getting a Keeshond sight unseen (another rescue) out of Maryland. He went on to become my first Ch. Too many more followed and lived with me to list but in the '80's I was lucky enough to own a Keeshond who made Ch. before he was a year of age by beating out the Champions at dog shows. Atom became 1 of the top 10 Keeshonden in the country two years running, won a HOF issued by the Keeshond Club of America for winning over 2000 other Kees, was bred to the top winning female in Canada and his daughter was the last Kees I owned. When Atom died of cancer I was too dishearted to continue breeding.
Then came the Shiba Inu's, 2 of them. One stole my daughters heart and now lives with her but I get to babysit with Cayenne about 1 week end a month.
I have had a long and happy life with dogs but the Spitz breeds will always be my favorites.
I'm not trying to brag, just wanted to share with all of you my love of dogs and those I have had. I am an avid watcher of the Eukanuba and Westminster Shows and just for fun I sometimes go the our local show.
Jetz is in training to become an agility dog. Dan just plays couch potato with me whenever he can and finds his way around the house by using his other senses and by letting his ears brush along furniture, etc. so I keep the hair long on his ears but the rest of him is clipped short.
None of You can Hurt me.
Cartoons and pictures, Words said in Whispers
The Ramblings of Sick Purple People Eaters.
The best place for you is a place called Bellevue
Where the doctors can try to fix you.
Psychotic drugs, electric shock plugs
Are the best cures for whatever ails you.
When all's said and done and your gray matter's dung
You won't have a brain left between you.

kees_lady, that is amazing. I like watching Miracle Pets - have you ever seen that show? It's about amazing things that pets do, whether it's attacking an intruder to sniffing out a cancer untrained.
ickbug, I'm sorry, but I don't know the answer to your question. Hopefully someone else will.

And sorry I don't know the answer to the dog show question either, ickbug.
