    Our Boston is mildly afraid of thunder, but fireworks...yeah fireworks are her trigger. She is terrified of them, and won't even go outside for days afterwards. We have to carry her out, for her to do her business.
    Sucks, because we have this moron that lives beside us, and I swear he hangs on to some after a holiday just to scare the neighbors. He'll let off a really loud one between the buildings without warning, or concern for others well-being. I mean, it's dangerous to do that, some explode right over our place. Called the cops on him, but he's one of those, can't tell ME what to do type of assholes.
    Needless to say, Chloe (our Boston) doesn't like it, and I get severely pissed at the guy because of the effect it has on my dog.

    Stupid son of bitch.:evil:

    On a happier note, Chloe turned 1 year old recently.

    Yeah, my dogs have a "party" every day when they get a walk and cookies. A new toy is nice, but my dogs get so excited at everyday things that a party seems unnecessary.

    Eh. It's just an excuse to go looking for crazy things to give them (like puppy ice cream) and, if you're a complete sadist, dress them up.

    Whether they get what's going on is largely irrelevant.

    Real men like their dogs big and hugable.
    Spoiler:

    He's our pride and joy, a massive dog that eagerly tackles anyone who comes home, always finds something to chew on, bark at, or chase. He's also spoiled rotten, barking loudly when we're engaging in a conversation and aren't paying attention to him.

    He's also terrified of thunder and fireworks, always running up to my bed like a big baby whenever a storm breaks out.

    Yeah, there was no "party" per say for Chloe, just the ice cream and a few photos to remember her turning 1.:)

    And really, you walk up to a dog with his doggy icecream and go "Oh, you don't understand this, I'll just take this icecream" and he'll tell you exactly how much he understands.

    Oh, I miss my dog. Dachsen/?Beagle? mongrel (officially he was listed as a mix between "Dachsen" and "a hole in the hedge"). Most embarrassing moment in my life he was involved in. Was out walking him, little old lady comes up to me, looks at him, looks at me and says...
    Spoiler:

    There's just no right answer there. "Yes" seems too accepting of the situation, "no" would have been a lie, "I hadn't noticed" a bigger one.

    Yay, dog thread! Here's some of the dogs in my life right now:

    First up is the loveable Bindi Sue:
    Spoiler:

    This Great Dane is the offspring of one of the largest Great Danes in the US. She's my in-law's dog and is now 2 years old. This was taken when she was about 10 months and she's grown a little bigger than this. I'd show you a comparison shot of her and my wife, but I'm afraid she'd kill me if she found out I posted her picture even if its with Bindi. To give you an idea of how big she was at 10 months, my wife is 5'10" and Bindi is above her head when on her back legs. This dog is loveable and massive!

    Next up, Bindi's older brother Bruno:
    Spoiler:

    Bruno is my sister-in-law's pride and joy. He's a shitzu losaopsa (sp?) mix. He's pretty prissy, but I think it's due to the way my sister-in-law handles him. He's a good dog, but will chew and tear the shit out of any toys you might leave around. My in-laws also have a St. Bernard named Brownie, but I can't find any pictures of him right now. He's old, about 8 years, and the vets have started watching his age since most St. Bernards don't live past 8 or 9 years of age.

    Lastly there's my dog, Eddie Vedder:
    Spoiler:

    When we were looking at new places to live, we found this place that allowed dogs and my wife went on this shelter frenzy looking for one. Well, she saw Eddie and knew that I would love him. I used to have an Australian/German Shepard named Jaime who was this big loveable mutt. She passed on and Eddie is almost exactly like her...but with the attention span of a nut. The shelter found him out in a field with a weiner dog and brought them both in. They thought he was a Rottweiler (sp?) mixed with something else because of his color, but we've found out he's actually a Bernese Mountain Dog mixed with something (my wife thinks a retriever, but I'm still not sold on that). No one would pick him up and the day we tried to get him, they told us that a Rottweiler rescue place had adopted him. After much running around and phone calls we found out they took a different dog and Eddie came home with us (after getting a snip). He's such a good dog and he does not bark...not at anything. He'll grunt and whine and make noises, but he has only barked maybe twice since we've had him. He's a people person and now he thinks he's a cat (a 70 lb cat, but a cat none-the-less).

    My dogs love Christmas. I always get them a squeaky toy and wrap it up. They get so excited that they just rip through the wrapping paper and then they run around with the new toy. Squeaking it, bringing it to us, playing tug-of-war with each other.

    I don't throw them parties or anything, but it is really funny and cute to watch them go after their Christmas present.

    About a week ago we think our dog got stung by a bee or something outside. Her whole face puffed up, eyes almost swelled shut. The vet said to give her an oatmeal bath and a couple milligrams of Benadryl, since she wasn't showing any signs of respiratory distress.

    She didn't like the oatmeal bath.

    I had a golden retriever growing up. Everyone always commented that she was the friendliest and most affectionate dog they had ever met. She was a bit on the small side and was two colored: She was almost white when she was a puppy, but then the fur on her back, head, and most of her tale darkened to a golden color while leaving her underside a very light cream color.

    She was very unusual for a golden. While she was a very friendly dog as they often are, she hated water. She was scared of our pool. She wouldn't hang her head out the window of a car like most dogs, but would instead breathe in your face and nuzzle you while you were trying to drive. She was also very maternal towards our cat. I'm not sure what she thought our cat was, or maybe if she thought the cat was just another dog. Every night after their dinner, my cat would cuddle up next to my dog, and my dog would clean her. Near the end, as my dog was getting sick, I looked outside once and noticed my cat cleaning my dog by licking and nuzzling her ear, almost like she was trying to comfort her.

    It's actually been almost fifteen years since she died. We never got another dog. For one thing, we didn't think the cat would take well to another dog. Second, we weren't sure if we wanted to go through that again, caring for a dog which is basically like a child and getting near the end and having deal with it passing on. I'm not sure if I ever will get another dog. I don't have any pictures, at least not scanned in since she pre-dated digital cameras.

    Has anyone posted this yet? http://www.dailypuppy.com/

    One of the bigger drawbacks of pet ownership is that they tend to die before you do. Christ knows I'm still pretty torn up from my dog dying four months ago, because for the first five or six years of his life we lived in a pretty crappy neighborhood and he was one of my only friends.

    Gonna contribute to this thread like no one's business.

    This is my boy dog, Zeus:
    Spoiler:

    As you can plainly see, he's a total moron. But what you might not know about him is that he's incredibly adorable. Loves to chase tennis balls. If you throw one in his presence, be prepared to continue doing so until either you or he dies of exhaustion.

    This is my girl dog, Maggie:
    Spoiler:

    Also a total cutie. But, unlike her darling brother, she's a damn genius. One of the smartest dogs I know. Up until a few years ago she was as springy as a Jack Russel Terrier mix could be (Zeus is a Pomeranian mix, we think) but sadly she was immobilized by bad genes and severe premature arthritis. She's still scrappy as fuck, though. And she can scoot too and fro, albeit in short bursts.

    This is my sister's big girl dog, Riley (I'm including her because she's awesome and also lives with me):
    Spoiler:

    A German Shepard/Border Collie mix. Smart as hell. Cute as all get out. Has more personality than the god of charisma himself. And did I mention that she's probably the sweetest dog you'll ever meet? Best part about her: she talks. Sort of, anyways. She halfway barks, halfway howls, halfway speaks in her own crazy little doggie language. Pretty much understands anything and everything you say to her. She can even spell!

    Giant Schnauzers are awesome dogs. Had a pair that lived up the street from me. Completely nuts but great dogs. And Hacksaw, naming a white fluffy ball like that Zeus takes balls much bigger than mine. Great looking dogs. That border collie/German shepherd mix would probably do your taxes if you asked.

    She can unlock doors. Not just open, unlock.

    One time we came home and found her in the yard. This confused us, as all of us specifically remembered locking the door behind us before we left so something like this wouldn't happen (she knows how to get out of the yard). When we went inside to investigate, we found dog saliva on the interior lock. It seems she'd gotten up on her hind legs, twisted the lock open with her mouth, then turned the doorknob and opened the door.

    It's worth noting that the door opens into the house.

    There is just something about having a pack of hound dogs that makes life extra nice. I'd have 10 more if it weren't for the fact that they would eat me out of house and home. (Plus the neighbors would run me out of town due to the howling and barking!)
