    Here's my badass's as described earlier on.

    Little Homie our Miniature Fox terrier who needs to lose some freaking weight. He gained like 3 pounds since getting neutered. He's the alpha.

    And here's Hemingway our "Jargle" as we call him. Half Jack Russel, half Beagle, all heart. Best dog I have ever owned, and my best pal in the world. Since Lil' Homie is the alpha, Hemingway is the beta.

    I haven't lived at home for a few years now, and sometime, I think I miss the dogs more than the 'rents.

    This is Doobie. She likes to lay outside in the sun with her black coat in 100 degree GA weather. She's kind of dumb.

    A few holidays ago, my mom decided the dogs needed special collars. The little one here, Sweet Pea (mom named her) ate her collar. I had to check her poop for a week to make sure it was coming out ok.

    guys, what sort of dog is this? Is it a basenji?

    Looks more like a cattle dog to me. The head shape is wrong and the tail isn't curled enough..

    And Mazzyx, I am in awe of your mother.

    I am taking agility classes with my dog right now and starting to wonder if we will ever actually compete. It sounds like several of your dogs are ILP'd. Has your mother put a MACH on any of them? Did she experience any negative comments about an ILP'd dog doing well? I am trying to decide if I even want to bother with AKC since my dog isn't registered.

    Sorry a bit late. I know Jazz is a MACH. I remember when she got it. I think Rose, the older of the two borders is pretty close and might get her MACH this year. In general other than a few nutty people she doesn't have any problems with her dogs. All of the dogs other than the Dachshund are from AKC registered breeders. The dachshund also has been registered but in a different way. I know she does AKC and another group for her Agility.

    The big thing with agility, is just make sure you and the dog are having fun. If the dog doesn't like it or isn't have fun then it's never going to get any where. I know the schnauzer had a few years where it was more of a confrontation than a activity they worked together on. I usually just hear the stories though and was dragged to set up equipment and such more than actually running agility.

    Spoiler:

    Midnite is a 10 year old rescue, supposedly a lab mix, but she doesn't exceed 35 lbs. She spent 8 years in Miami before my GF moved up to attend Penn. Midnite stays with me in Delaware.

    She's quite a unique dog. We call her a cat dog because she doesn't like attention, pets, or cuddling. She typically wants to be left alone, in a peaceful setting.

    Hard and smooth flooring is her enemy. She is like a deer on ice. Our condo has hardwood floors throughout, so we had to get large area rugs to accommodate her. We call them her islands. All in all, she is an ideal dog, as she doesn't require a lot of exercise, just regular 4-5 walks/day more than a couple blocks around, and the occasional trip to the dog parks for socializing, exercise and exploration.

    We've tried to turn her on to swimming, but she doesn't want anything to do with it. Our last attempt was at the ocea last year where she wound up sitting under the umbrella like an old gradma while we had fun in the water.

    Man, does she love sunbathing.


    2583390604_bc36cb27f8.jpg

    About 15 months ago, we lost Chelsea, a 13 year old Wire Fox Terrier. She was a true lab in a Fox Terrier's body. If she saw water, you'd have to restrain her or she would just jump right in. She was a very happy dog, high energy, and always followed you around to see what you were up to. She loved to snuggle and sleep in.

    She was my closest friend for about 9 years and losing her was really tough. I've considered getting another dog, but I worry about how Midnite would take it. She grew up as the only dog in the house, and while she got accustomed to Chelsea, that was a long process for her, and came to an abrupt end 8 months after Midnite joined us.

    Arghkajds beagle puppy. Look how insanely cute she is.

    I tend to like bigger dogs (danes, any old lurcher [greyhound, deerhound, wolfhound, etc]), and biggish/medium dogs (labs in particular) but I'm living in a smallish place, so went looking for smaller rescue dogs.



    He is a beagle in a labrador costume. A ninja beagle, if you will.

    When I first saw him I was like 'holy shit, it's a miniature lab!' You can't really tell from the pic but he's only up to my knee, tops. Really small, full grown, he's 2 years old now. He came from holy-shit levels of neglect but you'd never know it, he's super sweet, sometimes a little timid around strangers. He's a major, major cuddlebug.

    We think he's a beagle/lab but we don't know for sure. He doesn't bark, he howls -- his feet are webbed and his hair is super coarse and stiff. He is the stupidest dog I have ever seen, by far, I mean really amazingly stupid -- but this is my first really dumb dog, and I love it. He is too dumb to get into trouble! And he is hilarious. He has trouble chasing balls but that doesn't stop him from lurching off in pursuit, wrong direction every time ... he's my pal.


    Huh he's probably a Lab mix but that doesn't explain the webbed toes. Does he like swimming ? My Beagle hates water in general and if it's higher than her ankle she will not go in without a fight.

    Bath time is a chore let me tell you.

    My Pit acted like he hated baths, but I think he kind of secretly has enjoyed them. Now I don't even have to drag him into the bathroom anymore, he'll willingly go in there for a nice shampoo massage. But when you dry him off with a towel, he goes nuuuuutttts. Will run all around the house for a good 10 minutes, it's like he's a puppy again. It's hilarious.

    Spoiler:

    What breed(s) is Sweet Pea? She reminds me of my favorite of the dogs my family had when we were growing up. She was a rescue mutt, so we never had any idea what she was, though she seemed to be part lab and part beagle, with something else mixed in. I would love to have a similar dog again someday.

    Thanks Dark_Side:mrgreen:. I really need to stud him he is starting to get up in age. Blade does the same thing when he get out of the bath. I kinda cute till you see a 70ihs pound pit try to do a 90 degree turn on title floors. I do feel sorry for Jinx after a bath. She really a fluffy rat with all that fur. I am going to miss them when I move out of my parents house. The new place I got is a fixer upper and I have school so no dogs till I finish both of those.

    Like knowing how to swim, I swear its inherent in all dogs to do this after a bath.

    Also, dogs laugh, but most of us here probably already knew that. :wink:
    Robert Provine, a neuroscientist at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County who studies laughter, notes that dogs pant in a certain way when they're playing, and rats are known to chirp.

    Mine does that as well.

    She's actually fine until I go to wash her face( she has allergies so there's always gunk build up by her eyes)
    once you go there she FLIPS.

    I've decided I will record it one day and put it on you tube.

    Our dachshund does that too. Runs as fast as she can from room to room and jumps on everything for like 5 minutes straight. But the thing is, because she's so light she's like stealth-doggy on the carpet and loud on hardwood floor. So you'll hear nothing, then... *buda buda BUDA TAKTAKTAKTAKTAK BUDA buda buda*

    Probably call your local dog pound/spca and let them know you came across this dog and give them some information to get into contact with you. Other than that, craiglist...maybe, post up sign or two in the area, and lastly take the dog to a vet and get them to scan for a microchip.

    If one is closer a shelter should also scan the dog for you.

    You can also call local vets and pet stores and leave your name and phone number, they are the type of places people put up posters for lost dogs. You can also call more than the local shelter, the dog may have wandered quite a ways.

    Those ears are definitely beagle. That snout too.

    Rottweiler and Pom still don't explain the webbed feet. That's primarily a bird dog trait.

    Of course she does the head tilt!

    Also she's incredibly smart. She'll use her paws as little manipulators to help her get a grip on things, also she knows how to open doors but is too small and lacks hands so she can't actually do it. I know she knows because when she wants to come inside she'll jump up at an angle, reaching for the handle.

    She'll often "debate" with us when we want her to do something. She'll bark at us as we tell her to do something. She never really barks any other times.

    Jewel( my dog) used to do that. I think she gave up and decided to figure out the refrigerator. She constantly tries to wedge it open with her feet and nose. Locked doors are rare at my house so she has free reign.

    A fun game for beagles( provided you've clipped their nails) is to scratch a textured surface like an old couch cushion . Do it really slow. 90% of the time the puppy will wig out and start clawing at it attempting to unearth something.
