Willie is a 5 year old German Short Haired Pointer. I adopted him from the Humane Society about 9 months ago. Willie is the only dog I have ever had (and I have had a lot of dogs in my life) that can outlast me in tug of war. At 90 pounds of nothing but muscle, this dog is huge. Willie HATES cats - and doesn't particularly care for other dogs, except of course my little Rat Terrier named Comet. Willie will retrieve balls for as long as I will throw them, which can go on for hours while I'm watching tv. Willie will almost do a flip in the air while trying to catch a tennis ball thrown high and slow. He also loves to go camping. When I go up to my mother's property up in the cool, tall pines in the mountains, he will take off for an hour and come back on his own. He is oblivious to pain, as evidence by the fact that he will run through barbed wire fences to get back to the property and not even whimper (not that I like this aspect, but this is part of the craziness of this dog). He can jump high and long - something I didn't expect considering his size. I could go on and on about this dog's antics, but he is also a very loving dog and VERY loyal. He will follow me around the house and yard as long as I am home. He stays indoors when I am not, mainly because he can jump a six foot fence. Just as well, he makes a lot of noise when people come near the property. He has his own couch during the day, but he will not leave my side at night, sleeping on the floor right next to my bed. Obviously, I am the proudest dog owner in the world and think I have the greatest dogs that ever existed, but that's coming from the "master's" point of view! Just an extra note: Willie can and will chew through one of those big rawhide bones in a matter of hours. I bought him this KING KONGED size bone last week. I figure if I'm going to spend the money, at least get one that will last a few weeks instead of a few days!!

Very cool dog! We also have a pointer (mixed with an unknown breed) and she too is a nut! I thought I was reading about our dog...Madison.

Your dog is so cute! Enjoy him!

Gee, folks, if you are going to give my dog a lousy rating, at least have the backbone to say WHY you are doing so. I think I have given a 10 rating on every dog I have rated.

Just an update. 12/08/04. Willy got out of my backyard almost 3 days ago. I am not sure HOW he got out, except that some neighborhood kids claim they saw another kid let him out. I went to the pounds, there is more than one in the large city I live in, looking for him, and also the Humane Society's Animal Hospital, because Willy somehow acquired a large hole in his back. I have no idea how. I came home from work, let him in the house, and then saw all kinds of blood on his back. Well, he had an infection, I took him to the vet. The vet injected him with strong antibiotics and then gave a large bottle of antibiotic pills to finish the job. Willy had only been on the pill version of antibiotics for two days before he disappeared.



To say I was worried about my lost dog is an understatement. This site is full of dog lovers, so most of you know that losing dog is just short of losing a family member: it is DEVASTATING.



I came home today from a baseball practice, I coach youth baseball ages 10-12. When I pulled into my driveway, I SAW MY DOG, WAITING FOR ME, BEHIND THE CHAIN LINK GATE. The gate and all fencing around the property is 6 feet tall. HE WAS GONE FOR 3 DAYS. How? How do you explain this? The neighbors did NOT let him in, I went and asked them. After three days, you don't have any idea whether you will ever see you dog again, but you have a huge, empty "spot" in your heart. A family member has disappeared. Okay, so that's crazy, I don't care, my dog is a part of my family and that's that.



Well, the wound in his back did NOT look good. I cleaned the wound out with a syringe - filling it full of hydrogen peroxide and sticking it into the hole, filling it with the solution. I then expunged the solution and did it two more times. This is what the vet showed me to do at the animal hospital I took him to. Then I shoved an antibiotic pill down his throat. I don't think he's feeling too good after his ordeal, so I am also going to give him an aspirin.



You don't know the feeling of seeing your dog after that much time has elapsed. Your mind goes into all realms, and thinking that he is gone forever. You don't know WHAT'S going to happen. You just don't know, and that's the excruciatingly terrible part about it. Is he dead? Did someone find him and keep him? Is he laying somewhere, wounded and dying? Is he trotting around, hopelessly lost, trying to find home? To the last part, I say no. Willy KNOWS how to find home. He has taken off in the mountains for a LONG period of time and eventually returned. He has also gotten out before and has found his way home. That's what REALLY bugged me, I know the dog knows his way home - he's a hunting dog and apparently is blessed with that particular gift. Who to thank? I thank GOD for his return!

He's doing very well right now, thank you! He's as rambunctious as ever and though he now has a bum ankle, it doesn't slow him down hardly at all.
