Default A perfect dog for your home....

I thought a thread to tell us why, how, and how long your dog has been the perfect pet in your home would be nice

I'll start!

For us it has been Phoebe. She has been a perfect member of our family for 10 years now and I can't imagine a dog any better suited to our home.

She is the kind of girl who will let the kids practice first aid, let them dress her up, or simply lay by their side and watch tv. She will run with them until they collapse, then lick their face.

She is content to lay on the floor, but will happily join them in bed if they want.

She greets guests at the door with easy, quiet happiness. She never jumps, licks, or annoys a guest in anyway. Every guest to our home loves her and comments on how sweet and considerate she is.....everyone wants to dog nap her after meeting her, LOL

She never has an accident in the house unless she is sick....and even then it's a rarity.

She is laid back 99.9% of the time, but she has and DOES know when to be protective. She has WONDERFUL decision making skills.

So to the person who dumped her at the shelter 10 years ago I say THANK YOU with all my heart, and my family thanks you too

Ohh cool thread Idea.

Dekka is the. perfect. dog.

She is my constant companion. I actually get a little panicky if I turn around and she isn't right there. She just hangs out when I clean stalls or do things around the farm.

She is very laid back. Doesn't get into things, doesn't have accidents as long as I remember to let her out (she won't ask).

She is entertaining and engaged in 'family' life.

She will be 5 this Jan.. and has been my heart dog since she was 6 weeks old.

Awww...

I don't have my heart dog yet.

Fleur is pretty close to what I would want in a dog- she's very smart, drivey (but not too much) very athletic (yes, despite the hair) and just generally always smiley and fun to be around.

Besides...she's a great foot warmer.

She's my mom's heart dog, that's for sure.

I don't know if my dogs would be perfect for anyone.

Mary take a lot of care now. I spend time treating her eye, cleaning her ears, boosting her bottom into the car and up on the furniture. She can't hear anything so you have to make sure she is where she can see you at all times. SHe needs a daily pain pill and her joints need warmth when it is cold.

Pepper needs to run. IF she doesn't get to run daily I think she would go back to her door dodging ways. She's stubborn. SHe's independent. SHe is my ultimate challange dog. SHe made me get out and try when I didn't think I had anymore of that left in me.

Victor is like living with a dog on crack. He too needs to run, he needs to play, he needs to be engaged with people, and he needs to be kept warm. If you don't cover him up he will dig through trying to do it himself. Making the bed is hopeless. He had to be bathed this morning because he rolled yet again in something totally disgusting.

I can tell you though why it is good they are my dogs instead of belonging to someone else. Mary doesn't let me feel sorry for myself. Her good humour despite everything makes me very humble. I know she is worthy of all the extra care and that reminds me that I am worthy too despite my multitude of health issues.

Victor makes me get out and excercise. I would probably sit here until i stiffened up like a board but he pesters, and badgers until i give in and remember just how good being out under a blue sky really is. He keeps me going when i want to quit.

Pepper sighs...how can I give up with her here. Who will make sure she gets out each day. she would never be happy being a yard and house dog. Her finally gaining trust in me meant so much because she trusted no one. She and I need each other desperately. She gives me confidence in myself and i give her confidence in herself. At home she is always by my side. My baby girl and I love her so.

So I doubt anyone else would be happy with my dogs but I am. WE are good for each other in ways I cannot even put into words.

It only matters if YOUR dogs are perfect in YOUR home smkie

I look around at the wonderful Chaz dogs, they ARE fantastic, but most of them would NOT work in our home.........not close to perfect for me, but they ARE perfect in their homes for one reason or another

And you notice I didn't mention Orson in the perfect dog for our home post didn't you? hahaha! He is a pain in the rear, loud, demanding.....I love him still, but he's NOT EVEN CLOSE to the perfect dog for us, LOL

WEll then they are perfect for me. Which is a good thing because we pretty much make our world around each other. The house is a dog house, the car is a dog car. Jim use to call me "doooogggggyyyyy mama" when i came into the room. IT's just like that.

Rosey has been the perfect addition to our family for almost 11 years now.
She taught me the love that a dog can bring, and showed me how much I love animals. She brought me out of my shell, after we found her, I actually started wanting to be able to talk, and had the want to learn.
She's very content just laying on the couch all day, but if I want to go out, she'll get up and come out and go for a nice run.
She knows how to be gentle with children, and how to greet people coming into the house. Yet, she knows when to be protective, and when to not let anybody in.
She knows when to leave us alone, and is content being by herself, and knows when I need her with me, and will come into my room and just lay on the bed with me, with her head on my lap/legs/chest, wherever there is room.
She can always sense when something is wrong, and when it is immediate that she does something, what she does, she decides for herself.

I couldn't thank the person who left her on the road enough

Stella was right at home the minute she walked into our house almost 5 months ago. We had lost our much loved lab of 13 years, Sadie, in April and adopted Stella in June.

She filled the hole in our hearts with all of her puppy awesomeness!!!!

summer is just perfect because she is lol. She's my shadow. She's smart, sensitive, pretty. She loves everyone she's ever met. I just love her.

Now Rose... Rose is THE PERFECT DOG. I swear she would fit in anywhere. She is sweet, non demanding, even tempered, low key, low maintenence, smart.... She is really the perfect dog.

Mia is a good dog in training lol. It's gonna take her a while to settle in. Right now she's kind of a roller coaster but I can see the really amazing dog she's becoming and I'm quite pleased with her so far.

Auggie's a ****ing rock star. But if you asked me to tell you what it is about him that I love, and why he is perfect for me, I couldn't tell you. Because it's everything. It's Auggie. There will never be another Auggie as long as I live.
