Travis is my 3rd in 20 years. Not a breed for a casual dog owner. I have to Mtn Bike him to really challenge him yesterday we walked 6mi.

When I used to walked these two, Elsa (Rotty) and Yukon (Alaskan Malamute) We got the same response. Which I never really understood as both dogs walked on my left side at heel and were very well mannered in town.



People would see Yukon 1st and everyone wanted to hung him, even people that didn't like dogs...like him. Then they'd see Elsa and freeze.

Of course a stranger wouldn't know that Elsa was titled in Conformation, Obedience , Rally, Shuzthund and was a Therapy dog. Yukon on the other hand would pee on people. Those two are gone now, I trust having a insane game of tug, waiting for me on the other side of the bridge.

Wow nice dogs! My doberman is the same way when it comes to exersize. I have to take him for hard core bike rides usually between 3-4 hours twice a day otherwise he is a huge PITA! During winter, he becomes a sled dog He loves pulling.

Both my boys were very well mannered too. People would see Ozzy and panic "Is that a pitbull?" I've had folks think Patron is a rottie... What? This skinny thing??? LOL!

I have to challenge Patron (the doberman) consistantly to keep him on task and focused. He loves to learn new things and has a real drive to make me happy at what ever cost. Incredible breed. I've never known a dog to attempt everything I ask of him no matter how challenging it may be.

My dad raised Rotties and Pits when I was a kid. My great grandmother raised Samoyeds. My uncle had Daschunds and my Grandfather had German shepards and Blue Heelers. If it wasn't for being around all those strong headed breeds I probably would not have been able to raise my boys properly. They're my first dogs I've owned.

lol - that must have been the world's largest Have-A-Heart trap. She looks very chic and pleased in her argyle!

We have Moses, and your right, every picture I try to take he is either in it, or about to be in it.
Some examples:


And He snuggles:
Oh he's a beautiful snow! I wondered from the avatar if you had a bengal! They rock the cat world! More like dogs in my home. I have another bengal, but he hates his picture taken LOL! So, none of him and he is gorgeous! A 40 lb muscle-mania cat with rosettes. Have had him for years and still am in awe when he first see him in the morning.

Right now I just have two cats. The red tabby is Taz, and I got from one of my assistant managers, his brother found her tossed into a dumpster. She was roughly 6 weeks old when I got her. She is a big poser. She huffs & puffs and struts like she's tough, but she squeals like a pig when the other cat calls her bluff.

The black cat is Zazu, and she's the same age as Taz, I adopted her from a no-kill shelter to keep the red kitten company. I think Zazu was deprived of oxygen or something, she has very slow reactions and is generally goofy, staring off into space for hours. These last few years she just stares at me, with big moony eyes that never blink. I'm finally used to it - lol. However I found out this summer that when a mouse shows up, she turns into the Terminator.

here they are, both going on 13 yrs old now.









no no no...I believe you are mistaken. That can't be Taz! It is no other than "Puss in Boots" from Shrek! You have a star livin amongst you

Beautiful. She looks like a dingo.

Just looking at that pic, I cam tell you dod a great job raising them.

I believe each dog we own prepares us for the next one in some manner.

I won't be bring in another dog until Travis is 6 (18mos.) he deserves some
individual attention as he was in the Rottweier's shadow his whole life. The next will be a girl and I am going to a low energy dog breed, maybe Bull Mastiff, Dogue de Bordeaux, or Boerboel. I really want a Komondor but I know I don't want to deal with the dreadlocks

Hey thanks. I appreciate that. It is a lot of dedication and hard work, but pays off everytime. My Dober-boy was beside himself for a little bit when he became the only dog, but soon decided it was a good thing. One dog = more attention = happy dog. So, I bet Travis is living the life as your one and only

I thought about getting a Boerboel. Found a great breeder out of South Africa. (through word of mouth) Almost got the pup. Then, I decided because we take so many vacations it wouldn't be a wise move being that they are very serious about guarding the families turf when the humans are gone against pretty much anyone. What incredibly powerful dogs! There's just something about powerful breeds that have a hold on me.

What about Rhodesian Ridgebacks? Very nice too...and Thai Ridgebacks are pretty neat.

haha - I can see the "attitudinal" in your red tabby - I love their personalities, they are characters! My cats are both girls, the vet told me less than 15% of red tabbies are female. I hope I'll always have a crazy cat! I would love to dress them up in costumes and take their pics at Halloween, but they're not declawed, and my health insurance only cover so much ; )

Since Taz is such a trouble maker, I want to dress her up in black & white striped prison garb, complete with the little cap, like in "Where Art Thou Brother". Zazu is round & cobby like an English Shorthair with big round eyes, and I bet she's brilliant behind that clueless look, so I'd make her an owl costume. Or maybe a jailer. She'd like to be Taz's jailer - lol

I can't imagine how lively your home is with all those ferrets! I bet you have a blast : )
I see you live in the Channel Islands - how exotic! Do you mind me asking which one?
