roni, Rookie is adorable. If he had long hair I'd say border collie and lab. I see he has his own pool also. When we go to my mom's Angel(her german shepard) and Carey each have a pool. Although now they sometimes have to share with Maggie. Where do you work? Carey loves to stare out our window and bark at the birds and squirrels. My husband will make her sit and wait then he will tell her to get'em.She would of made a good hunting dog if we liked that kind of thing. My old boss used to think you couldn't train a mutt to hunt, I would of liked to prove him wrong, I think you can train a mutt to do anything a purebreed can do!
Bailey's Mom, Thank you for reading and caring Smokey was a great dog and we loved each other so much. It was a very hard decision, now I kinda wish I would of had the courage to do it sooner, b/c he hadn't been himself in a while.
Smkie, Thanks for reading. I used to think a lot of our vet (although he never had much of a personality) b/c when we wormed Carey as a pup she had very bad diaherrah(spelling bad)so I called him at home and apologized. He said never to worry about calling him at home. But then his polocies changed his home # is no longer listed and he is apparently scared of big dogs. He made us put Carey under to give her the rabies shot! So now I'm thinking we will go where I had Smokey put down. They were very compassionate. I am very grateful Maggie saw him, it made me feel a lot better. We did have a long happy life together and I know there will never be another one like him.
