I am blessed to have two lovely little fur babies - Daisy and Lulu. Daisy is a havapoo... tiny, cute, feisty, full of energy, independent, sassy and incredibly smart. Lulu is a shih tzu. She is a rescue dog and is honestly just a big lump. She loves to be with me and just be near me. She follows me all around the house. She is so awkward and clumsy and hilarious.

I have 2 Mini-Schnauzers, and they love to cuddle under a warm blanket, especially in winter.

Hallo everyone!

My name is Trina and my little fur-baby is a not-so-little 10 year old pug named Frankie! He's a complete sweetheart and just loves to cuddle with me under a warm blanket. Aside from chasing something in his dreams, he's pretty laid back and tends to just mull on things while awake (I think he secretly wants to become a zen master). Hope all of you (and your babies) are doing well!

Welcome Lori!

Friends, I have a new pup! He is a four month old Aussie/Collie mix. He is so sweet and so smart. He likes to be close and I love that!

Right now we are trying to stop the puppy runs. I'm giving him white rice with just a little dog food. I'm going to go buy puppy food tomorrow. Hopefully, it helps.

I currently have three dogs though it feels like more because I volunteer out at the local animal control shelter.

Swayze (Sway) - Is a German Shepherdx around 5 years old. He is 100% my dog. His purebred mother had an accident litter with their peoples other dog (American Bulldog x GSD x Border Collie) and the people were talking about drowning the puppies so their neighbor took the entire litter of 10 when they turned 6 weeks old. Sway was the runt and remained on the runty side as he is only about 50 pounds. I do obedience and agility with him.

Ezekiel (Zeke) - Is half my roommates (sister). We found him in a garbage can at a gas station when he was maybe 7-10 weeks old. I was able to find a litter that fit the right age and look. They said they were Irish Wolfhound x Doodle Mixes, weird combo but it wasn't the first time we have thought Irish Wolfhound haha. We even had a breeder ask us at the vet where we found an Irish Wolfhound mix at. So maybe? Maybe not! Zeke will be four this year. He is a big goofy dog.

Chelsea - half my sisters again. Chels is 14 this year, Akita/Malamute mix. She has kidney disease, arthritis and thyroid disease. She can be a grumpy old lady but we love her. My sister got her when she was just 4 weeks old. The litter was found under a house and the mother had gotten hit by a car a few days before the puppies were found. She is slow but she loves her walks. We are currently working on her "Lick It List" (bucket list) as we don't think she will be with us for much longer.

I everybody! I just joined this team today. My fur-baby is Pippin emoticon . He is a Bichon Frise and spoiled rotten. As I type this, he is sprawled out in front of the heater, toasty warm. He loves snacks, being outside, and naps. As you can see, he has a "ruff" life :)

Hi again Nona, and welcome to all your fur-babies too. I have a lot of family members with pits or pit mixed dogs and each and every one of them are great family members. We all love our pets as just another family member. And it is very sad and hard to lose any of them.

All my best to you and all your fur-babies.

Hello again, Nona, and emoticon to all of your fur-babies. Chef, Harley, Pecan and Marley. They all sound amazing, and I hope Pecan gets better soon. So are right, your Florida babies will soon adapt to the colder weather & snow. I think they adapt better than humans do, especially when they have such loving parents.

I am from Maine, but have been in Vermont for 30 years. Both hubby and I are retired, and not really liking the cold & snow anymore, but probably will never move south.

Again, looking forward to hearing more about your babies.

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Good Morning. I am trying to start out on the right foot. I tend to start things and then am very slow at keeping things going. So with that said I would love to introduce you to my furbaby collection. Or as my Husband refers to them as the Masters and we are their pets. My oldest is a pit named Chef. What an awesome dog. Friends warned us about the breed. "At 2 years he will turn on you. Be very careful" The only thing that has happened is that he turned us into slobbering fools. We love his constant kisses and the fact that he understands so much of our conversations. Sometimes it is downright weird. He is 9 years old. Then we have one of my favorite breeds. Harley is a 5 year old Dalmatian. We have had dalmatians for almost 20 years. At one time there were 5 adults and yes 11 baby spots ruling our log home. Those days have gone but we have decided to always have spots around the house. We adopted through the pound a sweet little mini pit. Her name is Pecan. After losing Chef's sister to cancer my son came to Florida to visit and insisted that I had to have a little girl around the house. She is our comedian.She terrorizes everyone and to tell you that she has heartworm is the clincher. when she was at the pound she was at the age that when tested they couldn't detect it. We put her on the preventative immediately. So when the time came for her yearly check up the test came back positive. But the Doctor feels that the preventative will kill the worm (slow kill). Pecan is suppose to take it easy but she has more energy then the 4 put together. Hopefully when she gets tested next it will come back negative. And the last of the crew is Marley. He showed up at our gate on July 2nd of 2013. Wet and scared. I brought him in the garage for the night . Dried him with a blow dryer and gave him some food. Took him to our vet the next morning and found that he was chipped. When I contacted the sister of the owner she was so tired of losing him that she contacted her brother and told him that we would take the dog off of his hands.. He was working in NY and had left his sister to care for the dog. He agreed as long as we looked like a caring bunch. His name has caused some confusing moments for the dalmatian but they have grown into a pack of furbabies that love one another and at times with 2 youngsters can be annoying but they would miss one another if one was missing. My love for dogs has been very emotional. Losing one to sickness or age always makes a mess out of me. I hate to see loose dogs wandering the neighborhood. I have animal control on my speed dial. We will be moving back to the north east April/May. Chef was born there but the other 3 are Florida dogs. This should be interesting but I am sure that they will learn to enjoy chasing snow flakes and running through the snow drifts. They will always have the spot closest to the wood stove to warm themselves and be ready for the next adventure.

wake up every morning. Put your feet on the floor and accept that this is a new day. I will succeed, because I am awesome!!!!!

I have two pups, Thor is a Boxer/Pit Bull mix who is 1 1/2 yrs. old. He is the biggest cuddle dud I have ever had. He is the sweetest pup. He is so full of energy and keeps us moving. Our daughter found him when he was about 5-6 weeks old. He was a street puppy who had trust issues with people as he was only used to people throwing rocks, bottles, etc... at him and another litter mate to make them go away. It didn't take him long to figure out we were not the enemy. He has seperation issues, which have gotten better, but he likes to be right on you or touching you. We crate trained him until he was potty trained (he hated the crate, we couldn't put anything in there with him or he would shred it up. We went thru three dog beds, one blanket and a towel before we gave up putting softness in with him. He no longer needs the crate as he is good when we leave, he just takes a nap until we get home.
Zena is our newest pup. She is a 4 1/2 mo. old Golden Retriever. She is all teeth right now. Thor doesn't seem to mind though, he loves playing with his new sister. We have to keep our eyes on her as she gets into everything! She is still in the crate. She doesn't mind the crate and loves her plush pet bed we've put in for her. (the bed is so nice Thor goes into the crate to nap sometimes, as long as we leave the door open. lol) Our daughters bought her for us for a Christmas present. We lost our two previous goldens (Rebel 14 & Ginger 10) about three years ago. emoticon

We have a White German Shepherd girl, who will turn 4 in December. Her name is Sweets (short for Sweetheart). Like her name, she's a sweetie and just wants to be a pal and/or part of the pack, lol. Her pic is on my SP-page, if you'd like to see her. Hope everyone is having a terrific Friday emoticon !

I have a female, fawn pug Izzy who is 8 years old and I adopted a 6 year old Brussels Griffon named Wicket (my profile pic) about 7 weeks ago. I lost my older pug Aggy in early April.

I would like to introduce you to Sweet Magnolia of the 4th Dynasty! AKA Maggie! She is on my profile picture. Maggie just turned 7 - we adopted her from Dynasty Minis - she is a 3X mom. She is a nontypical Aussie - she is a couch potato and happy just to go for a daily walk. She is wonderful off-leash and comes right back when I call her (well, most of the time).

Maggie is our 4th dog - not all at once. In sequence we have had Penny, Jayme Lee and Shadey. All but Penny were Aussies and Penny was an Aussie mix. Shadey was also a retired mama and she died at age 12 from cancer. We had decided "no more dogs", but then I couldn't resist and happened to see a Facebook post about Maggie who was being retired.

I am friends of the breeder and she boards Maggie when we go on trips. It is fun to see pictures of Maggie's kids and grandkids on Facebook. She has a son, Wyatt Earp who actually traveled many miles to come see her!!

I am looking forward to meeting all the furbabies on this team!! emoticon

Both of mine are very spoiled and pampered too, but their worth it too ... well most of the time.

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

I have three dogs Oreo, Gizmo and Bolt. My son rescued Oreo when she was two and she is now 16. She loves to go get coffee with me to get and dog treat with whip cream on it. Gizmo was bought for my daughter when she was sixteen she is now 26 and off living her life so Gizmo is with me now. Giz was Eight weeks old when we got him and he fit in my daughters goody pocket so she took him to school with her. Bolt is 1 1/2 and she was four weeks old when my daughter brang her to me to bottle feed. She has been babied and spoiled, but she is worth it. They all three are my babies and keep me company during the day now that my kids are grown and out on their own.

I've heard great things about newfindlands, can't wait to hear more stories. I have a dog that has never ending energy too, so let me know if you need ideas.

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

Our newest family member is "Baloo", a rescued 4-year-old Newfie. My recent blog says it all. He bonded with my daughter almost immediately; took a little longer to warm-up to me. Maybe the excessive saliva (his, not mine) had something to do with it in the beginning. Now he is part of my "morning routine" and fitness plan. He can walk 3 miles and still want more. Wish I could say the same thing.

Getting back on track after being sick since .... Christmas. Sorry, I've been MIA AGAIN - sometimes I wonder if I'm ever going to truly get back on track.

Hi,

I'm Lora and Teddy Bear is our Newfoundland. He is 2.5 now and is the best exercise equipment. He loves his walks and demands a walk in the mornings and evenings. When he wants to play he gets this little gleam his eyes and I just know that he will be finding his favorite toy and it will be time to play fetch. Teddy loves other dogs and people. As a matter of fact he gives a big grin when he meets someone new.

Looking forward to being part of your team. reading your posts and sharing my Teddy stories. :)

Lora

That's awesome. We all have our one-in-a-million pet. Ours was our little Ingrid that passed a little over a year ago now. I've never seen my husband take anything as hard as that. I can't wait to hear more about them and all the things they do.

Thanks for the warm welcome and wags!! Beckafano my dog is an educational therapy dog and goes to school with me almost everyday. We call this program Edu-PUPS. (My Jozee only missed one day in almost 12 years and that was the day after they removed her spleen. I was told to take her to work as she would be more stressed having to stay at home.)

We also visit assisted living and nursing homes, libraries, special needs daycares, and different events that request therapy dogs. We've done the Autism Walk and fundraisers. We call these dogs Petting-PUPS.

Kepi also does after school reading programs. We volunteer for six consecutive weeks and read to the same three kids. This helps the kids increase their fluency and self confidence. We call this Reading-PUPS.

My Jozee was also a certified service dog for mobility. She was trained to help my students that had gait and balance difficulties. She would brace for them to get off the floor, block if they lost their balance and fell. She wore a harness that they could hold onto to help their balance when we went on field trips. She also helped with different therapies like speech, occupational and physical therapy. She truly was a one in a million! (At least to me!)

MJREIMERS, Welcome and so sorry to hear about your loss. However, I think it's great you work with therapy dogs. I've often considered turning a couple of our dogs into therapy dogs, bu I just don't have the time. What kind of therapy do you do with them?

MJREIMERS - welcome again to all of you. I saw your page, and all of your wonderful pictures. You are definitely an animal lover, and I am so sorry for the ones you have recently lost. They are never forgotten, and you will see them again someday. They will always be watching over you.

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Our current fur family includes Mia, a terrier mix, that is 8. She is a retired therapy dog. Mia is still having a hard time after losing her best friend and my "heart dog" a year ago. Jake is a Siamese that my daughters found in a creek when he was about 4 to 5 weeks old. Kepi is my current therapy dog and is a Miniature Labradoodle. My younger daughter has a 1/2 Arab 1/2 Paint horse, Lady. They do 4-H and ride dressage. Lady also loves the speed events and trail riding. All of them are rescues.

I lost my once in a lifetime horse, Tequila, 20 months ago. I had her for over 30 years and since she was a baby. It was a very hard six months. I lost both of my "soul mates" in that time. I still have a huge hole in my heart for my girls and I know that I'll never have another dog or horse like them.

Thanks for the wonderful welcome to the group. I'm really hoping that this will help me heal from "my losses." Don't get me wrong, I am very thankful for my human family and the fur kids that I have now, but I will always miss my Tequila and Jozee.

I'm such a scatter brain, I can't remember if I introduced myself and my 'gang' or not, but I didn't find anything from me, so here it is .... possibly again.

I have two dogs, both rescue's. Bella is the youngest, she just turned a year old and she's a weimereiner (I own one, but don't know how to spell it.) The next one is Tessa, she is a three-legged boxer that just turned two and she has more energy that any four-legged boxer we've ever had. And last is a cat we've had almost 10 years now, Stumpy was born as a stray at my moms house and she was born with only a very small part of a tail.
