    What cutie pies! That sure was sweet of you to give up Sadie.

    Is Joey studying to be a bible teacher? 8-) It looks like exhausting work!

    I just love that look Lizzie is giving. Does she look so small because of the angle of the camera? I've read Catahoula's are pretty big dogs.

    As for Chewie and Allie, it seems like the smaller the dog, the more authority they claim. How did you pick Chewie's name? I've met other Yorkie's with that name and my sis and I think it comes from Star Wars Chewbaca.

    I just found this and thought I would show you my baby. She thinks she's the boss and I let her get away with it sometimes. She's a Mini Schnauzer and her official name is Lady Sophia 23 (that's just how it came out) but we call her Sophie. She's 1 1/2 years old and waits impatiently for others to play with her. Her favorite place to be is on "Daddy's lap". Her favorite toy...the grandbabies.

    This was just a couple of months ago.

    This is her when we first got her (she was already 4 months old).

    Yes, studying to be a Bible teacher is so exhausting that he must sleep at least 18-20 hours a day! lol

    Yes, Westies are West Highland White Terriers. He doesn't have the typical terrier attitude, but he LOVES to play. He's great with kids too, as long as he's getting some attention. My 2 year old always plays with him and they share stuffed toys.

    There's nothing like watching a Westie play. One of our neighbors has a Westie too, and they get together to play. It's so much fun.

    Lizzie is small for a Catahoula. She was a pound puppy and we think she just got a rough start in life. Now the pic was taken awhile ago when she was less than a year old and she has grown some but not a lot. chewie loved to chew on your hands when we first got him as a puppy, hence the name. Fortunately he gave that up and now just likes to lick you.

    We rescued Buddy from the pound , he loved to sit on your lap stretch out and dream.Due to health problems we had to put him down in 05. Sassy was also another rescue and she is now 11yr. Amy is now 6 and both dogs have us well trained..and I wouldn't want it any other way.

    Thnks for the invite Celeste! I loved looking at everyone's pics and stories, and it's true, Celeste-you tell a great story!
    so-here are my babies:
    Winnie is 14 years old-we got her as a rescue puppy. She had had a broken leg before we got her-we didn't learn how it happened. She looked like a lab until she was about 8, and then the shepherd took over-she used to love to swim, hunt, and play frisbie, but at 14 she's very lame and has retired from all that-she does love to referee her younger "sisters" when they play, though, and she's the undisputed boss when it comes to telling us to bring on the grub-very healthy appetite! Recently, she stopped eating much and I thought it was probably time to put her down. I decided to buy her a senior formula dog food, and her zest came back-when my husband tried to offer her the old stuff, she refused to eat it. . .
    Next is Heidi. She's 6 now. She's the only one we bought as a baby. Might have been a mistake-she's a spoiled rotten diva!! We bought her after a rescue lab we'd had snuck off one night to lick some road kill up about a mile away and got hit by a car. I was devastated! And when I went to a rescue store at a pet store the head lady treated me like I was a deviant for letting a dog out without a chain. The lady was from a big city-she had no idea about how we country folk live-acres and acres of free land around us far from a road. So-we decided to get a puppy. My students had been taking very good care of me, since I was so distraught, and insisted that the new puppy come to class-Heidi met at least 200 teenagers that day and decided that she had an adoring public and was a big star and the rest is history! Even though she's a lab, she absolutely hates water! If I'm in the kitchen old Winnie and baby Holly are underfoot waiting for a bowl to pre-wash or a sample to taste-test. Not Heidi-she's laying on the couch waiting for me to bring it to her. . .Heidi will lie at my feet when I read in bed until she hears daddy coming-then she scurries up to his pillow, snores like she's been asleep for hours and won't move so he can come into bed-he has to grab her by the collar and flip her-and she continues the snoring routine as if she's so far gone she hasn't noticed.
    Summer before last, I was sure that Winnie wouldn't make it through the summer. We were in the UP and I was worried about how Heidi would be depressed if she were suddenly alone-so-I found an ad for a 7 month old lab pup. Took the other two out to meet her, and against my DH's wishes paid for her out of some casino winnings and took her home to our summer place in the UP. First morning she got up very early so I took her down to the dock to fish with me-she jumped after the bobber and discovered swimming-yeahhh!!!! 2 favorite hobbies-swimming and fetching!!! Convinced her that fetching bobbers wasn't a good idea (especially after she caught a hook in the leg), so she decided that retrieving fish was way more fun! She's the family clown, and the star of my avatar. She loves food, but wolfs it down so fast that we have to put her food in a wobbly kong-this doesn't stop her from bringing in a metal food dish and banging it on the floor when she's hungry. Did I mention that she's way smarter than we are?
    So-after 2 years, we're still a three dog family and loving it!

    Winnie - our 14 year old-a trouper!

    That's quite a group you've got there! From the teeny tiny to the huge, long and short fur, shell and feather! How old is Roy and how long do they live?

    I'm so glad they were found by loving caring people! Did you see if they have an ID chip in them? Every Veterinarian and humane society should have a scanner.

    I'd love to be greeted by Amy! It's so cute how they do that! I knew a dog that liked to carry her teddy bear and would even "bark" with it in her mouth!

    Love to everyone's babies!

    I love your story! I fell in love with all three just reading about them, but Winnie is at the top of my list. Please give them all loves from my sister, Emily and I!

    I'm loving all the posts and wonderful pictures of our "non-human friends"! I'm going to post two posts...this one is of our wonderful Harley. He's in dog heaven for the last two years & I miss him dearly. He was a rescued dog. My daughter works for a vet hospital and she was able to rescue Harley. We took Harley and had him for 71/2 years. He gave nothing but love! When he passed he was 13 1/2. He was a Rottie/Bull Mastiff mix. A big boy! We called him Harley, the man dog! He loved to greet all the kids at halloween. Was gentle with children. We haven't gotten another dog yet. Maybe there will come a day when I can have another...miss Harley too much. The other post will be of my "grand-doggies"!
