We have a boxer dog named Henry! He's a rescue pup from a bad breeder. Bless his little heart. We got the TT just so we can take him with us cause when left at a boarding kennel, he gets stress colitis so badly, he's sick for 5 - 6 months!

He is really good at killing small animals. In the four years that we've had him, he's killed 3 squirrels, 2 armadillos, and 4 rabbits! :O Most of the rabbits and the armadillos have just been this spring and summer.

He does alright on the trips. The not being at home deal makes him a little nervous, but as long as he's with us he's fine.

70 pounds of big ol baby!

I've enjoyed hearing about everyone's babies!

We have Potsie, a 3 year old rescued miniature poodle, and Rosie, my MIL's 7 year old cockapoo she had to give up when she had to move out of her house.

Potsie was found in TN, tied to a tree, along with a chow chow. We adopted him from the rescue group that took him in. He was rail thin (and the rescuer said she'd put several pounds on him by the time we got him, so he must have been a walking skeleton)The poor guy is just a tad paranoid, but he's lovable. We're working on his issues (he hates men with big voices - probably sounds like whoever abused him). He now is a healthy weight and enjoys his food!

Rosie came to us from my MIL, as I mentioned, morbidly obese. She was 28.2 pounds in February of 2011, but the vet wanted her around 14-15 pounds . We now have her down to around 15 1/2 pounds - yay, Rosie! It's amazing what a healthy diet and exercise will do.

Potsie smiling-silly boy!

Rosie when we got her in February

Rosie now (not a great picture, but you can see her new body)!

Our Old English Sheepdog is a rescue. He came with the name Bentley and we thought that is a good name for an OES.

We have 3 fur babies all Chinese shar pei. The thing is with Shar pei " they are just like potato chips " you can not have just one".
The first was already named after an ancestor " Tascha" ( Grants Lil Ms Tascha ] almost 8 yrs old
The second was a pretty hefty looking pup so we named him Wyndyhills Blu Sup-R- Dooty Diesel aka " Diesel", 3 yrs old .
Wyndyhill was the kennel breeder and blue was his color.

The 3rd was one of their puppies we just had to keep. She is a chocolate dilute named Grants hot caramel chocolate Latte aka " Lottie".

Mati the Wonder Dog

only because she was a rescue dachsund. She loves camping more than we do. Looked for a long time (I grew up with dachsunds) and she landed in our lap within 6 hours of being rescued. So many rescue dogs that turn into the 'Perfect' loving family member.

We rescued a 9 week old mutt originally named "Tipper" in 2001. Reminded us too much of Tipper Gore ( elections just finished) so we renamed her Kali

Has she been spade? This may be a maternal thing coming out. Our golden holds her stuffies in her mouth like they are puppies. It is very cute. A trainer also told me that squeekie toys can become pray they make that sound that will set a dog off in hunt mode. good luck with this.

We have a two year old Beagle. My son named her Hailey but she has the nick name of Damit Dog. She loves camping and will run staight to the camper when asked "wanna go camping" but is a barker if one of us isn't with her so we can never leave her at the camper by herself. We don't want to be one of "those".
