I do, she's a little mutt :P I'm not really sure what kind she is, but she's black with a little white on here... and pretty small. She's also pretty old now, so she sleeps a lot, but she still comes over and expects me to pet her all the time lol... She's the only dog I've ever had before. And she's laying right down next to me right now :) She's so cute! So, do you have a dog? Or more than one dog?

Yes, I have a dog. In fact she is a VERY new addition to our family. We just got her last night. She is a purebred shih-tzu, she is 2 years old, she was raised around children, and her name is Katie. I wanted to get a dog that was raised around kids, well tempered, non shedding, friendly, unhyper, potty-trained, and so far she has been the perfect fit! My 9 month old daughter just adores her, and I know the dog will be great with her because she was raised around kids :)

haha... that works too :P Having a new dog in the house would be like raising another child, so it's probably best to wait a bit like you said lol

King Reggie - Picture of my black lab, Reggie.
I have two spoiled dogs. One is an Australian Cattle Dog, named Blue. She just recently went blind. My other one is a black lab named Reggie. We call him King Reggie sometimes since he just takes over the whole house; like this picture of him lying ona matress and pillow with the remote in his paw. LOL.

Reggie always takes up any bed he can find. It's cute and annoying at the same time.

O-Tok-Tay - My dog, O-Tok-Tay
I have 2 dogs. Like you, they are mutts. This old lady's dog had puppies & she didnt want them. She had gotten rid of all of them but 2. She was goin to take them to the pound so I took both of them. They were about 7-8 weeks old when we got them & really small. Now they are around a year but are small dogs. One is named O-Tok-Tay (Sue Native American for Kills many) & the other is Nikel (German for Demon. Probably spelled wrong) We named them those names because they are small but if someone messes with my niece, they will bite them. Here is a picture but it is blurry because it was made through a screen window.

I have a dog, his name is Chester. I got him about 10 months ago, he's a german shepard/labrador. I have had so much trouble with him, however I can't seem to part with him. He chews everything up and can't stand still long enough for you to do anything with him. I love him anyway, he's just a big ball of fun.

Have you tried looking into some kind of training school. I'm not really familiar with how to train a dog, because mine was already trained it seemed when we got her, but maybe something like that could help you and your dog?

We have a mutt too. We adopted her from a shelter. She's 2 and a big baby. She's some kind of Lab mix. Not sure what else. Some say Shepherd, some say Chow, some say Husky. Maybe all of the above! LOL!! Who cares! She's a GREAT dog. So loving, so gentle, loyal, obedient and smart. We've had her for less than a year. She's great around the house and she loves our little toddler. She gives him kisses all the time, lets him climb all over her, etc.

Awww... so sweet :) We've had our dog for probably around eight or nine years now, but when we got her, she was fully grown and even the vets aren't really sure of how old she is, but we know it must be getting up there lol... she tires out a lot faster than when we first got her. Now we have to take her for shorter walks cause she'll just lay down after so long and not get up and I have to carry her home :P

I have a dog named Chopper, who is supposedly half black lab and half German Shepherd... but she's only medium sized. She is the sweetest dog in the world! All she lives for is having her belly rubbed or catching treats in her mouth!

Ahhh... she sounds so nice :) My dog loves to have her belly rubbed, but she can't catch treats if her life depended on it lol... she just lets them bounce off her head and then eats them when they fall to the ground lol

I absolutly have a dog, they are the finest creatures in the world. I have a precious 1year old Beagle. She is my cubby, silly little girl who loves running and playing or just cuddling. She simply is the greatest.

I have two dogs. I rescued them both from shelters. They are both mutts and getting pretty old now. I have had one for 12 years and the other one for 10. They are the sweetest little things, but very different. I it amazing how dogs have their very own personalities just like people. One is a terrier mix and the other is a sheltie mix. I have lots of dog hair around my house. My vacuum clean and I have a daily date.

I have 4 dogs and my oldest female just had 10 puppies 4 weeks ago. I have 7 puppies left, you want one? lol, just kidding. I love dogs and I even kept one of the pups from my dogs very first litter. She's not a pup anymore, she's 2 now. My oldest dog is our house dog and he is 11. His name is Scotty and he's also the smallest. Next I have Jasper who is almost 9 years old now and he is the biggest. Then there's Fluff who is the oldest female and she is 5. She's the one who had the pups. The youngest is Freckles who is 2. I also have 8 cats but only 5 of them have been home lately. The males are always out and about tomcatting around. My oldest female has been gone for about 3 months and she is my favorite. I miss her so much. I have 3 other female cats and they stay home all the time. And then there is Leo and he is my youngest cat. He is 9 months old now. Sorry you only asked about dogs but I got carried away with mentioning my cats too, lol. As you can see I am a big animal lover. :)

I have a rough collie, like Lassie! But I am away at college now, so I miss him SO MUCH. He is the cutest dog in the world, even though he barks too much and pisses off all our neighbors. :C I still love him!
