This is Oscar, my 11 years old chow chow. He's been there for me through thick and thin; I am so happy to have him. I just hope he lives long enough. He knows family members and social friends by name and he is so welcoming. I guess, I wanted him to be friendly with everybody specially with the grandchildren when they were born. It is so true that a dog is a reflection of his/her master. When I walk Oscar, people stop me on the street to tell me that we look alike. He even knows how to smile. Am I nuts? no, I can see him smile.
I have a sheltie but there isnt an option here to add his picture so you will have to look at my profile to see Maverick. Where the heck did the add picture icon go>click to submit, preview, and cancel..whats up with this I thought they added the option?
Ok for some reason my dogs picture wont download but Maverick is on my profile..darn it..
WELL MY 6 MALTESE GIRLS ARE A HANDFUL, BUT THEY GIVE ME UNCONDITIONAL LOVE..& THEY ASK FOR NOTHING IN RETURN!!!, WELL ACTUALLY ATTENTION , LOTS OF IT & FOOD, SNACKS..OH BOY IT'S GETTING COMPLICATED, BUT I TRULY ADORE THEM!!
you are so right, they are like family...my first dog died when I was 16 and I had him ten years....I grieved terribly.....I am so sorry.
I know elderly people that up and die soon after they lose a pet....
Pets are so loyal and wonderful.
Humans should be so loyal....
Love this topic! My whole world revolves around my 3 dogs. My Shepherd's nickname is "the million dollar" dog. He so fits in around here. He's had emergency bloat surgery, a cancerous tumor removed, and 2 back surgeries (1 emergency and 1 scheduled). What's even funnier is when he was 9 months old he had a full black saddle, but is completely red...like me now. Talk about looking alike.
Hi everyone I recently got a dog a Boxer girl in late October her name is Duchess she is so sweet. I lost my 14 year old Sheltie to a stroke in late February. Duchess has been a real treat to have.I love her so much already.
