Darlene, how nice that Blue is the new team mascot! He sounds very much like my Lucky - a fellow who had some serious health issues right from the get go, but had a full life in spite of them.

HOORAY for Blue!!!

Oh, wow. Thank you for honoring Blue. He was the youngest of Annie's puppies, the one who didn't really look like a purebred, but he was one of my sweet boys. Blue was 15 when I lost him because of a horrible disease, Masticular Muscle Myositis (not sure that last word). But he fought that disease for a few years and was a brave boy. I feel honored that you have chosen Blue for the Dog Lovers Mascot.

I never heard of it either until we got Charlie and realized he was different. We want a silver lab next they are so cool looking and why not have 2 of the rare variations?

I never heard of that color, either. Where I used to board my horse they breed silver and charcoal labs. Not an accepted color for show, but they are interested in hunting more. That and making money. I think they breed too much. They don't use crates for their dogs and always interact with them, though.

Our Alice was like that, she is part Lab. We bought a Bloodhound Pup years ago, and you know hounds. Nose into everything all the time lol. One day he was into everything. I looked at Henley, and mumbled out loud about just telling him no...Alice jumped up, grabbed a toy, and took it to Henley to keep him busy for a while. I had to laugh.

Thanks Sandi. He is so cute all the time it's hard to think of things on the spot, but one thing he does that's adorable is he likes to teach puppies (and the less civilized! LOL) how to behave. We puppy-sat last year, so Charlie was only 4-5 months old, but he knew to sit when being fed or watered, and to wait before charging out the door. He told the older dog in no uncertain terms that his jumping would NOT be tolerated! He smacked his little butt down on the floor and looked at him as if to say "DUDE!! SIT or we WONT GET FED!! You Can't DO that here!!" He also made him sit and wait at the door! He also demonstrates commands PERFECTLY for puppy friends, even though he looks at ME like I am crazy trying to practice with him at home alone. I guess it is beneath him now! emoticon But he Loves to teach! He looks at them as if he is saying "Look, little buddy, they want THIS when they say that and then you get a cookie!!"

Cindy, that is such a cute story about your precious Lab. I've never heard of that color either. My Honeybear that went to the Rainbow Bridge at age 14 was a yellow lab and just the love of my life!!!

Feel free to share stories about him!!!

Eileen, I agree! Our animals find US and CALL to US to come get them. He was the same way, really. I had the choice of about 20 local breeders for labs and Golden's that sounded great, home-based, reputable. I was DRAWN to this one, even though it was farther away and I never spoke to anyone from any of them so it was not personality. I just KNEW I would find him there, and I did. I was also looking for a girl! LOL But when you know they are yours, it's done!

Kathy, I never knew either until we realized as he grew up that he was different. Someone said he looked red so I Googled "Red Lab" and found a lot of information and pictures. Then I Googled "Fox Red Lab Images" and found MANY that look exactly like him! The brown nose and eyelids are another unique thing that I think disqualifies him from shows, but I think his white patches do anyway. Not that I was concerned about any of that AKC stuff anyway. We haven't even registered him because who cares?? He is our baby, end of story!

Cindy, he is very handsome fellow! I had never heard of this colour in a Lab before - only the yellow, black, and chocolate ones. I do love Charlie's colour!

Thanks for telling us all about him.

Hi, and thanks for picking Charlie! I got him from a local breeder, he is a purebred lab, Fox Red. We thought he was just a yellow when we got him, and picked him for temperament more than looks. He was calmer, yet interested and very cuddly. I would have gotten a rescue but wasn't able to. He is the best dog, has a great temperament and does the cutest things every day! He loves dogs, people, kitties, children...anyone who will give him some love! He is creative at not getting into trouble, yet getting what he wants. For example he knows it's bad to jump on people or the door, so he hops straight up but doesn't put his paws on them! He will take a sock or something he isn't supposed to have, and hide it way back in his mouth behind a toy! emoticon He's just a great dog, thanks for picking him!

It's amazing how much love can change things for the better isn't it! Too bad more humans don't understand that you can move mountains with even just a little kindness shown toward others!!!

I'm glad that you and Daisy found each other to love!

Hi all!! This is Daisy's (a Registered Chihuahua) mom. We took her out of a home at the age of 13 months. The people we moving out of the country and didn't "get her paperwork done". We found out that she had never been outdoors and had never been socialized. We couldn't touch her but for some reason we knew we needed to take her out of that environment so they had to put her in the kennel for us to take her and did give us the kennel. We got her into our house and opened the kennel door. She ran and hid. We were going to give her time to adapt. Our son came over with his Chi. and Snickers hadn't been to our house since Angel, my profile picture, had died. So he went looking for her, found Daisy, scared her to death and she flew into my lap!! The picture you see is that very night after she settled down and would sit by my feet. We worked with her and soon had her loving the outdoors and adoring people! She is a great camper too!! Loves the travel, riding in the truck, car or the golf cart! She is younger than our other one but acts like a mother to her. Daisy has 14" long legs and boy does she have a great jumping range! Smart dog and learns rapidly.

That is our Daisy Dandy Lion!! Thanks so much for featuring her!! She is special!!

It's always so interesting to see everyone's beasties, maybe learn about why they got their names, or how the came to the household etc.

Edison is a "Shiranian" rescue dog -- half Shih-Tzu, half Pomeranian, all Teddy Bear! He's a little over two years old.

He started life with a breeder who was making "designer dogs." Since he didn't fit the mold precisely, he was sold to Petland and purchased by a family on the east coast of Florida. When he was 1-1/2 they gave him to Shih-Tzu Rescue of Florida

www.shihtzurescue.org

because they said they didn't like the way he interacted with their children (or they with him?).

In any case, he came to us a very well-behaved, friendly and secure animal. He loves everyone, all dogs, probably cats if they'd let him and has a smile and a cuddle for anyone who cares to indulge.

He doesn't bark much -- not at the door, not at other dogs, people or intruders (!) leading us to believe he may have been trained with a bark collar. It's a bit strange having a dog that reacts by just looking, but at the same time, it's a blessing because my husband and I both work from home.

Edison's favorite thing to do in the whole world is to go to the dog park

www.yelp.com/biz/naples-dog-park-nap
le
s


and I try to take him 3 or 4 times a week. He would prefer every day, but his human owners have needs too.

Most of the day he parks himself on my desk right next to my keyboard as I work. When he wants to go out, he moves between the keyboard and the computer and stares at me until I move. We have a pretty good bond now that we've had him for six months and I hope we have him for a long, long time.

He's a beautiful addition to our life and we feel very blessed by the circumstances that brought him to us.

Alice is super smart. When Henley was a baby, he had a day where his nose was into everything. I looked at Henley and said "Henley, get out of there". Alice jumped up, grabbed a toy, and gave it to Henley so he could stay out of trouble lol. She keeps Henley and Munchie in line. Never Sarge though. Kind of funny.

Sally, the Mascot of the Week is chosen from our members pets that are posted on our Spark Pages. Sometime you have to go to that person's page to see a picture of the pet but most times they are posted here on this thread.

Welcome to the team, glad you are here on SP and that you are getting more active.

Our new mascot is Bruno. Owned by FLOWERDALEJEWEL!

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.
