Deepest sympathies on losing

Deepest sympathies on losing Auggie. They do leave such a hole in your heart when they go. My Rex is pushing 13 and in generally good health, but I sure do cherish every day I have with him.

marye said to post about my cool looking dog here, so I will. Auggie was a once in a lifetime dog and I miss him a lot. He gained full membership in my local circle of 'head friends when he snuck a box of Wip-its out of a buddy's knapsack and carried it right into our circle, dropped it in the middle and sat down (not that he partook or anything). He was a big guy at 125# but you never met a gentler, sweeter creature.

OK, tearing up now... here's his Dogster page: http://www.dogster.com/dogs/63375

Dear Doha, my princess. My week with you was truly a delight. Your sweet countenance, soft paws, and happy dances made each visit the highlight of my day. Please, thank your mama for me, that I was able to experience your charms, and I look forward to the next time we can be together. Yours, in the nip, XXXXXXX

I left my darling princess

I left my darling princess Doha for a week vacation and came home to a love letter to her, written by her pet sitter - a wonderful man I found by luck on the internet. I have the most beautiful kitty!

I love the concept of a schnoodle- Moose sounds adorable and best of luck with his puppy training. Do you have any puppy parks in your area? Great places to let your bundle of energy off leash to run and mingle and you don't have to worry about cars...
I'm sorry about Bear Rex. Loosing a loved one is hard, especially when they're so young. He'll be waiting for you at the rainbow bridge.

My goodness - what a heard of animals.
We have one puppy that is just 4 months old. Moose Jackson is our little schnoodle (Schnauzer/Poodle mix). Today was his 1st day of puppy training.
Prior to Moose, we had Bear Rex, who unfortunately was hit by a car and passed after only 6 months. Needless to say, Moose is not going off leash.

Wanna come farm sit? You can

Wanna come farm sit? You can bring Callie & Rex- They'd love it here... Rex sounds wonderful- I love that he didn't lose the brain- Callie sounds like quite the character-

Vivi has my dream

Vivi has my dream menagerie...

As to the BC/Lab mix,it's really a good one and I plan to seek it out for future dogs. With Rex at least, and also with a couple of my former fosters, you get the best of both worlds--brainy, loving, etc. Of course if you don't want a high energy dog this mix is not for you. Case in point, Dalmatians are notorious for being "hyper," or so people tell me, but compared to Rex, Callie's a couch potato. And even at 12 with two knee replacements, Rex loves to run. Just not as much as when he was young.

The differences in the two dogs are pretty interesting (and Callie is much the better for having Rex as a brother). Both very smart, but Rex tends to use his mighty brain to worry about doing the right thing and keeping things in order, whereas Callie's is entirely devoted to getting her own way.
