I just noticed my pug doesn't step on the sidewalk cracks. He sometimes does act like a little boy, but is this a usual dog thing?

Some dogs are wonky about what they'll step on. Our 90 pound Doberman gets weak in the knees on hardwood. It's funny to me.

My dog will walk out fine onto a pontoon/bridge/etc right up until the moment he realises he's over water and then he pancakes. He clings on for dear life as you try to drag him along. Other times he doesn't notice at all and is fine with it. He pretty funny about getting into boats too. Doesn't want to do it. Clings to dry land. Two minutes later he's on the bow of the boat barking into the wind and wagging his tail like crazy. :lol:

Picked up an 11 week old puppy from a foster home via a rescue yesterday. They said they think she's a boxer/lab/shepherd mix, but i think she's probably a pit bull/lab mix. Probably trying to not scare people away by saying she's a pit. What do you guys think? She's incredibly sweet and doing wonderfully with her crate training already.

Also, cats are awesome, too. I don't understand why people have to hate one or the other. Animals are great.

She was pretty upset I didn't take her to see Force Awakens.

Feel like I can see the Shepherd for sure. I've known as few Pit-Labs, and they all looked just like Pits with Lab eyes. Super cute no matter who her parents were.

I'm tired of the snow in Colorado but my dog isn't. Couple pics from when we got about a foot a week or two ago.

Traditional Xmas eggnog meet at my Uncle's farm before the hunt. My old hunt club, Brandywine, no longer exists so Radner came out this year. Their riding wasn't exactly impressive, but you can never go wrong with a pack of foxhounds.

I'm going to need 8-10 pictures of this pug to be able to tell you for sure if it's unusual.

Petco already had a substantial amount of Star Wars merch, but like anywhere else they've really double downed since Force Awakens came out. They may as well just take all my money.

I just put my sweet french bulldog of 12 years down today... I'm so lucky to still have my Malinois Surly, but miss Maddie dearly. Love your dogs guys, thanks for sharing the pictures

Just found this little guy living under a bush, hangin out at the golf course, no collar, chip, not neutered, cold and afraid.
When we saw him the grounds keepers said that he was unapproachable but he came right to us.
We decided to take him to get a flea bath, give him some treats and take some pics to post at the golf course, FB, and around the neighborhood.
But after all that we just couldn't bring him back.
We now have 3 rescued dogs.


We named him "Ozzy"
