Cute..I was thinking the same thing yesterday..."Where is the dog thread?"..but I found it a few pages back and sur' its no harm to start a new one and we need a horse one too.

I can't believe I didn't see this thread before now! **EDIT** I see it just got started.... it's about time... too much cat love on this forum!!

Here's my pup, 3 year old Black Lab/Sheperd/Heeler named Gabirella

Glad to see this thread. I don't see life as being "cat" vs "dog". I love ALL animals and will probably get a dog when some circumstances change. It will have to be a dog that will get along well with my cats. At the shelter where I volunteer, there are a lot of dogs and cats who get along really well.

I've become fascinated with cheetahs, which are easily tamed. Maybe someday we'll have a cheetah thread!

I love all animals, but I'm definitely a dog person - specifically Asian, smush-faced toy breeds (Pugs, Pekingese, Shih-Tzus, Japanese Chins); I just love their temperament. They were never bred to fetch their humans' meal, much less their own - they're perfectly content to be mellow palace puppies and eat, sleep and provide companionship. They don't need to bounce off the walls to play, they don't need a half-mile walk to do their business, and that's fine by me. If it were socially acceptable, I would tote my two pugs with me everywhere but that's not reality.

That said, yes - I *am* one of those people who perks up whenever anyone asks "do you have pets?" and proudly pulls out the multitude of photos :)

Chloe on the left, Emma on the right - no they are not sisters but they're 'frick and frack':



Chloe, doing her best impersonation of a baby fur seal:

Emma, out in the sun where's she's happiest - seriously, I think she would have one of those old-school foil reflectors if she could:

Chloe is usually the one to wake me up to let them outside in the morning - sometimes her timing is less than ideal (i.e. 5:15am vs. the usual 7:00am) :hell: but how can I possibly be angry with this :happysad:

Emma and Chloe doing what they do best:

^I dunno, I think the cell phone quality makes his face look like a painting.

^ Thanks. I think the photo's a little blurry, but the pose is classic and so hard to capture. :)

My two Labradoodles, Cooper & Alfie. They don't often sit together like this often.

Molly is beautiful.

Anyone ever adopt a dog from Best Friends Sanctuary in Utah? That's where the show "Dog Town" was filmed. Dog Town was on the National Geographic channel for a couple of years. I volunteered there back in 2009. Their Dog Town area is incredible, as is the cat village.
