    Ok, I'll start

    Here is "B". She is a 70lb Chocolate Lab. She was found by friends of ours so of coarse we ended up with her. She is almost two years old, so she is still a puppy.

    Problem with B is that she is terrified of water. A lab scared of water??? So with a lot of coaxing, we got her into the pool. She gave it a gallant try with the swimming thing. Webbed feet and all, but just like Blackie, the Lab and Rottweiler combo that we lost last year due to old age (18.5years) she wasn't kicking her hind feet enough and pretty soon her butt started to sink, then the splashing of the front feet began and she freaked. Now; she's more scared of the water.


    What to do? So I tied a Swim Fluggle on her hind end with a rope and now her hind end stays level with her shoulders and she's got her confidence back. Hell, she may even become a water dog someday, who knows?

    It looks like a Roman bath tub. But it's wet and cool in the summer.

    Isn't the Beezer a sad looking mutt? You'de think she just lost her best friend.

    My brother in law had a chocolate lab that was a big time water dog.
    Liked birds too but never was taken hunting.

    One day they were riding down the river in his bass boat doing about 75 or 80 which a 21' bass boat with a 300HP motor doesn't have much problem doing especially after it gets a jackplate stainless steel prop and some engine mods...

    Anyway they are riding down the river and to the side they approach a duck which takes off and seems to be slowly flying alongside the boat as they run parallel with the boat overtaking the duck.

    The dog decided to take a jump for the duck... [88]
    It was an ugly sight as the dog skipped across the water and rolled and skipped an rolled...

    The bird escaped and the dog was okay.

    That was the last fishing trip the dog went on.

    I had a little dog that used to do that. She didn't jump, she just liked to get up on the gunnel and a good wave would send her skipping. Never seemed to bother her, she would get right back up there. This boat did a whopping 35. Man at 70, that's got to be a real rush. I'll bet the Duck thought it was pretty funny though.

    Cookie couldn't get her picture to post, so I'll give it a try. I think LWD would have a great time with these two.

    Thank you Bob, I will make a note of the spaces and such. I didn't realize. So, you want to feed my kitties to those dogs? LOL. NO, lol. Those dogs look nice but they don't need a meal of 2 nice little kitties, [88]

    The big one is my Robert, Bob. He is going to be 22 years old come January first. The little one is Thomas, Tom. He is now 4 months old, and he is a real sweetheart. He is also, deaf and has asthma.

    My youngest son bought him for me, and when I realized he was deaf and had astma I asked if he was clearanced out.

    Last week, he mentioned he knows this dog. I said, " yeah..." and, " is he on sale?" Well... my son said, " he is blind."

    Well, I am going to take him. I am the most imperfect creature on the face of this earth, and my house is filled with all imperfect things, except for my kids, they are too perfect to be mine, they had to been switched at birth.

    I once had a fish with no fins. Won't go into that. [88]

    Hello Cookie! No, My dogs do not eat Pretty little kittys! They have been brought up to know better. They just Like to chase them, until the cats get tired of playing with them! I too have a miniture dashound that has been blind for about 5 years now, she is 8 years old. It's funny how she bounses off the wall like pac-man, but sure knows how to find, and get into the Garbage can!!!!!! I will keep loving her until she dies, or is in pain, then take her to the Vet.

    Take Care,

    Wayne

    wow, Wayne, is that a real cat you are holding? I thought Bob was big, lol. Does he eat dogs? [:u] I hope you have your little weiner dog a long long time, I can't imagine losing Bob. My kids don't remember life without him. They were 4 and 5 when, we got him. I told my oldest recently, that Bob was getting old. He said, " getting old? Mom he is nearly as old as I am and I am over a quarter of a century old!"

    Which made me think of my age, YIKES.[88]

    I have been training Thomas to not pick on Bob. Tom has claws and Bob doesn't. Bob wants to send him away, lol. I don't know if it is because he is deaf but, I have never had such an affectionate cat. He just loves to be loved.

    He even makes his own clothes. [88] He got into a blue plastic bag and put his arms through it, and his head and made a vest. He was running around in it, scaring Bob. Bob is afraid of plastic bags, so he hates his new clothes.

    Ain't animals great. They are all so different yet so alike.

    I guess I'll have to take some more pictures now. I have two little dogs. The biggest is about 10 pounds, the other is 3 pounds. The bigger one is about 16 years old and the small one is about 2. The small one thinks he is king of the castle. He has B all figured out and pretty much has his way with her. The small one's name is Rambo and the middle one is Boomer. They all get along great. Boomer doesn't play though. If she thinks the playing gets a little out of hand with the other two she breaks it up and the other two listen. She's really the boss.
