  • Lost a good friend today! So post up your pics of mans best friend.


    She was no hunting dog but she keep my family safe and our yard and house break in free.
    She also kept the yard Ibis free!
    She was a Smithfield Cattle Dog and at 15 and a half she had a good run.
    So lets see some photos of your faithfull hounds.
    That's her replacement to the right, I hope she trained her well!
    Cheers Mat

      He loves to play where I grab his feet and he bites me, always gently, and will nudge my hand with his nose when he wants to play.

          These are my 2... One is wolf hound x ridge back and the other is wolfhound x bull terrier...

          My ridgeback cross (the brown one) is 10 years old now and the poor thing has a large cancerous growth at the base of her tail (about the size of a soft ball) and she is beginning to have a lot of difficulties because of it... Unfortunately we spotted the growth early and took her to the vet (about 2 years back) and the vet took samples and ran a few tests and the come back positive as cancer... The vet was worried that if he operated that it could cause the cancer to spread and that chemotheropy for her would run into the thousands of dollars with no guarantee that any of it would be successful or give her any longer to live... So the vet said to leave it and see how it went as he thought she would only get another 6 to 8 months before we would have to get her put down...
          She is still active but no matter how much we feed her she wont put on weight, and she is a lot of difficulties toileting... So it wont be long before I have to take her for one last drive...
          She has been my hunting and tracking dog earlier in her life, and the best dog imaginable with the kids, plus the best friend I have ever had... So I am dreading the day but it has to come...

            Sorry about your dog. It's sad she's gone but she had a good innings, by the sound of things.

            I was almost in the same boat last week when the little mutt below disappeared for three days. We had just given up on him when someone dropped him off home on Sat as we were getting ready for a b/day bash. Sort of a crap b/day thinking i'd lost him but a good present in the end when he came back on the day of the party. He is now under close confinement!

            This is him looking sooky after getting his ear torn up in a tussle.

            We have another dog. He's old and mostly deaf. Sleeps a lot. Sometimes we have to look closely to make sure he's still breathing in his bed.

              sucks to hear mate. its a killer when they leave.

              my Mrs. (was a registered doberman breeder) told me that the reason dogs dont live as long as people is that it never takes them long to learn lifes lessons and then its time to move on to something better. she told me this when i had to have my girl put to sleep about a year ago.

              i was lucky enough to get my boy from her last litter

              my staffy girl (no longer with me) and my boy Titan.

                It can be very hard losing a pet.
                To some of us they are not just pets, but part of our family or replace a family.
                This is my departed old mate Zack, and his replacement who is now 11 months old Jack.
                Zack

                He who has never made a mistake has never made anything.

                Many things have been developed by persons who were not smart enough to realize that they were impossible.

                  Bruce the 3 legged Staffy, fearless and loyal shadow. Would have a go at anything, his speciality was cats . Loved the pigs too, but size wasn't on his side.
                  This photo was taken after we caught a pig while fencing.
                  Alas, a snake was his downfall at 11 years old.

                      Saw an article on TV about an assistance dog in the UK being awarded a Medal of Valour. After his master was hit by a car in his wheelchair, the dog rolled him into the recovery position, ran over the to wrecked wheelchair and got his master's mobile phone and took it to him and then took off to get help.

                      They really are a man's best friend (just don't tell the wife).

                      Here is my best friend.

                      I was a staunch "no dogs in the house" guy before this one. We had two other dogs but this one was special from a pup. She so much loved attention and was so affectionate and well-mannered... within a month was allowed in the house ... within two months was sleeping in our bedroom ... within three months was sleeping at the bottom of he marital bed.

                      She is a ACD x Ridgeback. Doesn't bark, doesn't smell and loves anything on two legs. Hates other dogs.

                      I will be a mess when this one goes. The little buggers just don't live long enough.
