You do not know what love is until you look into the eyes of your pet
(If you are lucky enough to have a pet, that is)
Molly and Pauline in Oz
Molly is ten years old going on one hundred.  Of all six  Yellow Labradors I have had,
she is by far the most intelligent.  I got her when she was seven years old when her owner
became sick with cancer and couldn't manage to look after her.  Leo does the exercising as
I can't walk far or fast enough to do any good. We are totally in love with her and as a result
tend to overfeed her which has to stop in 1999.

 I prefer the company of my Dog since
he wags his tail and not his tongue.

Hello I am Grimmy McKnett.
I am the shy reserved type.

Dogs love unconditionally, just like God.  That is
why he used his name backwards, to spell their name.

Hello! My name is Tucson, I am a 5 year old Whippet.
I belong to Dusty and Yes, that is my baby blanket, Thank you!

This is a schipperkee named Tout Ross.  She is 3 years old and completely
unhousebroken.  She likes to go for rides in the cars whenever she
can.  This started, strangely enough, when she was first taken to see
the vet.  At the present she is one of three, having a much older male
and a slightly younger female for companionship.
"If you pick up a starving dog and make him
prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the
principal difference between a dog and a man."
-- Mark Twain
I am including pictures of our two other schipperkes.  The one with the
"short hair" is Dittle (correct name according to Lois, Dawn).
I called her Dittle for two reasons.  The first is that she seemed
to be a ditto or carbon copy of Thimble, the one who died.  The second
reason is that when she was a put her brother scratched her on the nose and
the hair grew back as white rather than black so she is a dit with a dot,
or a dittle.  I know, it doesn't make any sense.  The other dog, with the
long hair is our male, Dipper--contraction of skipper (again no sense).
His AKC name is :Nor-Sah's Inkee Bear.  He is about 16 years old and
when younger, much younger, got his AKC obedience certificate in four tries.
Three tries are necessary and he would have finished in three appearances
excepting that it was noisy in the arena and he couldn't hear my son
(his trainer) call his name.  When the call had to be repeated he heard
but he was disqualified for not reacting the first time.  Funny thing though.
The AKC sent him not only a certificate for obedience but also one for
conformance.  Anyway, that completes our brood.

Mimi wants you all to meet Duke Gillette who prefers
"Duke" to Marmaduke.  OK by me!!!

"Of all the things I miss from veterinary practice,
puppy breath is one of the most fond memories!"

a problem."  -- Edward Abbey
Sisters should love each other
"Cat's motto: No matter what you've done wrong,
always try to make it look like the dog did it."
"Your mother dresses you funny"

"Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it
won't buy the wag of his tail."

grandchildren get jealous of the Boo And try to get grammy love
by pretending to be Boo's brother.

"Woman is a dog's idea of what God should be."
-- Holbrook Jackson

Oh mama, Please pick me up and love me

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender,
your dog.  You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last
beat of his heart.  You owe it to him to be worthy
of such devotion."

kindergarten.  She now has to accompany her mommy to handlers class.

licking your face." -- Ben Williams

My dog Macks. (Andrea's Mackson Million).  Macks is a 5 year old
Chow Chow.  He is sitting in our front yard.  He loves to go for
rides in my van and sits up straight in the front seat like a person.  Boy do
we get looks from other motorists.  I can't leave a van door open if he's out
and I'm unloading stuff from the van, because he will jump in and WILL NOT get
out and at about 90 lbs., he's not easy to get out so I usually have to take
him for a short ride and then he'll get right out once we pull back in the

Just to introduce my little one:  Dejah.
Hubby said that since I picked her out he got to name her
and since he's a big Edgar Rice Burroughs fan, he named her Dejah Thoris (princess of Mars)
after a character in a Tarzan book, but I just call her Deej.
She's a Border Collie and we play flyball as well as attend Therapy Pet classes.
They're a good reason for being on God's green earth, aren't they?
BTW, that's a bone in her mouth!
