    How long would your dog survive a zombie apocalypse?

    Gambit would not only survive, but he would probably emerge as some sort of Zombie leader. The walking dead would be right up his alley as minions. Gimmick would wither and die quickly without a blanket to snuggle into and someone bringing him his yum-yums on a regular schedule. Glitch...

    So called "wolf hybrids"

    Have him enjoy Gambit for a few days, and then reevaluate how much he wants a hybrid. And Gambit is pretty mellow for a hybrid. Still, I can't even begin to total what he has cost me financially, emotionally, and mentally over the past five years. He's been an experience and we've just now...

    What is the most common thing you say to your dog(s)?

    "Bad Roozle! Bad Roozle!" Applicable to a wide variety of situations, all involving Glitch and his endless ability to find trouble "Who is my Gambit Eugene? Oh, it has coy kisses!" Coy kisses is his new thing and I think it's adorable. "Shrimpitus? Shrimp, are you still breathing?" I...

    The dog musing/vent thread

    Glitch got introduced to his new best friend Mr. Belly Band today. He was absolutely horrified, but until he can control his marking, this is what's happening.

    The dog musing/vent thread

    Yeah, no need to make a scene. His dog sounds a lot like Gimmick. We went, we tried, and we had the same issues. And this was in foundations, not anything too stressful. But it was for him. So we finished the set of classes, thanked the teachers (who really were wonderful) and left...

    Intact males + females

    While reading your reply I couldn't help but stare at the pictures of Didgie and Fergus and imagine what their babies would look like. Ummm.....they would have a lot of tongue. Maybe you'll get lucky and have a gay dog like Gimmick. He runs away when he sees a girl in heat. :rolleyes:

    The dog musing/vent thread

    Glitch met a turtle today. It was the most amazing thing that had ever happened to him. Was it an animal? A rock? Somehow, it was both? He was in full on Wacky Whippet Weasel Dance mode. I finally moved it before he could give it a stroke.

    Spin off: have you ever adopted/kept a dog using your heart exclusively?

    I saw Gambit's face and knew he was meant to be mine. Never mind that I didn't need two dogs. Never mind that he was 5 hours each way away from me. Never mind that upon showing his picture to a rescue friend, she looked at it and said 'yeah, do you see the schitzophrenia in that dogs eyes...

    The one that got away?

    I still miss my Iddy Quiddy. I know that he is in the right home, and I certainly had all the opportunities in the world to keep him, but he was such a precious mush. I look at his pictures and videos all the time, and if his current home could not keep him, I would not hesitate to adopt him and...

    Glitch Videos

    Some of you have seen these already, but for those who haven't: Glitch stacking rings on his ring toy. Also, enjoy a brief cameo by Felony the Persian. This was our December trick, and I'm proud to say he learned it by 12/15! I have no idea why he has so much trouble with the yellow ring...

    Ha! Glitch in on the floor throwing a tantrum right now because I took his marker away and he wants to keep working. I got the same advice, and he just makes his own rules.

    What are you Working on? 2016

    Glitch will start agility and dock diving, as well as earn his CGC. By the end of the year he will have a walking handstand, be able to walk a ball across the room, and paint his name at an easel (what can I say, I dream big :rofl1:), as well as any other tricks I think up. Gimmick: Will...

    Goodbye my boy

    Oh no! I too lost one to sudden kidney failure and I know how quickly it can happen. Please take care of yourself during this time.

    Kennel Cough Duration?

    Our town had a massive kennel cough outbreak over the summer. I work at a vet clinic, and we had dogs who hacked for weeks, and dogs who were over it in a few days. My Glitch (about 6 months old at the time and the only one who was vaccinated for it-go figure) coughed a grand total of 3 times...

    Those with multiple dogs...

    All of my boys play together. In fact, Gambit plays only with Gimmick and Glitch. I am very curious to see if he will play with Little Richard. Glitch will play with anyone at daycare, but is happiest when it's him and his brothers. Gimmick occasionally engages other dogs, but mostly hangs...

    What does your family think of your dogs?

    Of the children (who are currently living with my parents-long story) the youngest loves my dogs and cats, but does not have good boundaries, so sheis not allowed to play with Gimmick. One of the cats scratched her badly a few months ago, so she has learned some reasonable boundaries with them...

    The dog musing/vent thread

    I actually really like cockapoos. For the most part, they seem to get the best of both breeds. I don't like curly coats, but I see plenty that are straight. The rest of the poos are take it or leave it. They seem to be nice little dogs, but pretty interchangeable. A yorkie-poo is a shih-poo...

    We have one PWD at work (I didn't realize they came in more colors then black, cool) and I think he might be a bigger idiot then the doodles. Super nice owner, but the dog is just...yeah. But maybe others are better.
