I am more then happy to show off my pet with this one. This is Nattie. She is my 13 year old beagle mix. She's my baby. I have had Nattie since she was 7. I rescued her from the animal shelter. She was in there for over a year because no one wanted an older dog. I fell in love with her the moment i saw her and had to have her. So after the whole process i took her home the next day. And we have been a happy little family through everything.

I have two lapdogs that are my babies, and faithful companions. Since I live alone, they bring me joy and lots of laughs at all the things they do. They love me unconditionally, and never fight with me or argue with me, and that is a great feeling.

@T_gray Thank you. They are my babies, and I love them so much.I don't know what I would do without them, as they help with the loneliness, and they are so faithful, and never aruge with me, and they love me unconditionally.

I think she was purposely posing her best canine face and you fell for it, which is awesome too how can anyone resist @T_gray

Aw she looks so sweet and, that was nice of you to take her home. I just like Puppies, because then you get to raise them from a baby, but I love all dogs.

I don't really have the energy for a puppy honestly. Nor did I have the time then to train a puppy. But it sure is something special to raise them from a baby.

Adorable! I need to have a new photo of my cats, when I get a new camera. (I can't do it with my computer's webcam though.)

@T_gray Thanks T Gray, I do have an old photo from 2 years ago. Not sure if that counts. Maybe someday this year like this summer, when I buy a digital camera on sale.

@KristenH I think a two year old picture would still count.

I guess 7 is getting on for a dog but you've had another 6 years of pleasure. My friends took in an older Labrador as the husband has COPD and they didn't have the time or energy for a playful, energetic dog. He has been a great friend and companion to the husband who is home all day while his wife works.

I think that was a plus too. I don't have the energy or the patience for a puppy or a dog with a lot of energy themselves. Nor did I have the time to train them. I also felt bad since I felt no one was going to take her home

@T_gray She must have nearly given up hope after so long. Would they have put her down if no-one claimed her?

She's very cute! And it's lovely to hear of someone rescuing a dog who was for some reason less desirable than others I know I won't end up posting my own discussion for this challenge (I'll forget, just like I seem to forget everything ) so here's our Treacle - she's eight now, we rescued her from the RSPCA, she was the last of a litter of puppies and had been left on her own

Pets aren't for everyone. But I think they are a blessing since I probably won't have kids

Kismet
This is Kismet. She was 3 weeks old when we rescued her, but only the size of a 2 week old she was so starved. She was born feral, but we got her before she had become completely wild, we still see certain feral tendencies, but she's such a sweet and beautiful baby. She is one of our many rescues.

Dogs generally are great companions and they are known to be man's best friend without no known reasons. Beagles are nice and were once popular but nowadays have lost out to huskies and Labradors. In my country, breeding dogs have become as temporal as fashion so I have to really get used to some conversations some times when the owners have such kind of attitude.

I think I will always love to hound dog breeds. I love the big floppy ears. And I think they are just as good as as any other dog.

@T_gray I like big dogs like the German Shepard, Doberman or Golden Retriever. Huskies are nice but it will be very hard to keep them during hot and humid summers.

My babies
these are my babies and I adopted both of them, they really love each other. The bigger one is almost 4 and the little one is just over 1 year old. They bring me such joy. I got both of them when they were quite young.

You are a very kind person who adopted an old dog. I can see that you take good care of Nattie since 13 years is already a very old age for a dog. Perhaps you can paste the pet photo challenge link here so that we can vote for her?
