I searched for threads on this same topic and nothing showed up so blame the search engine if this has been done before. Long story short I was bored this morning and decided to capture a few pictures of my chocolate lab, Zoey while she was basking in the sunlight. I am using a Canon T3i DSLR to capture these photos with very primitive photography skills. She's two years old and is an absolute beauty.

Here's a picture that came out with her looking like a wierdo...

Here's another photo that captures her normal look...

Looks like the sister of a friend's choc lab who's name is Cloe :) I wish I could contribute, I would love to have a dog but it's just not reasonable or fair in my circumstances. I would probably look at labs or retrievers also.

She really does get up and move around sometimes...really! I'm serious! She doesn't ALWAYS look like this...well, not at this locale, anyway. Sometimes she's under the blankets on the bed, or in the laundry hot out of the dryer, or on my pillow...

This is an old pic of my dawgs. Vidalia is my ferocious Pit Bull and Georgia(R.I.P.) is my English Bulldog. Had to put Georgia down a few weeks ago at the ripe old age of 13. Not too shabby considering the average life expectancy of the breed is 8 years. Stinkiest farts on the planet. I miss her, but my house smells a lot better.

We too have a fireplace that I'm fairly certain exists primarily for the enjoyment of the feline population of our home. Given that we're in Tejas, I build a fire at the holidays and maybe a half dozen times other than that every year. Invariably, within fifteen minutes there will always be a cat lounging in front of the grate sleeping blissfully. IF there's such a thing as reincarnation, I'd really like to come back as one of our cats. It's a plush and cushy gig. LOL...

Knerd, I'm really sorry for your loss. Animals are family and losing one is always horrible. We've been through it too many times. But we always come back for more because they add so much to our lives in exchange for so very little. It never gets any easier and you never stop missing the ones who have gone. It always sucks. (Please excuse my vernacular, it's actually far worse but that's the most polite description I can muster.) I'm glad you had Georgia for so long. That's an impressive life for an English. I had a very close friend who had one. Such a funny and delightful breed. They're so strangely cute and wonderfully friendly and will just lick you to death. They just have a load of personality. I can't help but smile thinking about her. I'm sure yours was equally charming.

This is Miss Maple, a rescue from the Guilford County, NC animal shelter. I got her at 3 1/2 months old and the shelter workers and her Vet all say she is a Golden Retriever, German Shepherd mix. I just call her a Golden Shepherd. Whatever she is, she is my constant companion and the designated shop greeter.

Oh thanks for that. He's actually not a bullmastiff. He's a cane corso. Mastiffs generally make great dogs but as you already know they don't have the longest lifespan. The bigger they are... :(

You are right indeed but there is a good explanation. Cane Corso were saved from extinction in 1988 so their working instincts remain largely intact. A lot of working breeds we see in the pet trade have had a lot of their working instincts bred out of them to make for more suitable household pets. Secondly, there are two distinct cane corse; Italian and American. The Italian reamins largely stable with characteristics you will find described for the breed. The American version was created due to the exorbitant cost of importing dogs for the pet trade. It is basically a dog that looks like the cane corso Italiano but when you get in terms of temperament is a bit of a gamble. Not to say that they don't make fine dogs. They can and do but more often than not they have severe health and or temperament issues.

I spend 24/7 with my dog and he is the 3rd which I have imported from Italy. I can say without question that you need to be an experienced and strong owner for this breed and you have to have time to work them at least a couple of hours a day for most of their life. If you don't want to be a leader or you want to leave them home without exercise all day it's gonna be trouble for sure. Kind of scares me when people buy a breed for the look.

Yes. These dogs can be very dangerous when not handled properly. The scary part is that it seems like the idiots who used to buy exotic pets like Tigers and such, have turned their attention to "exotic" dog breeds, of which the Cane Corso is only one. I've worked with a lot of problem dogs over the years. It took me almost two years to bring an Anatolian Shepherd to the point where I thought he was safe to be around. Part of the problem here lies in that a Cane Corso LOOKS like he could mean trouble. Anatolians generally look like a big, friendly retriever with a curly tail. They are NOTGolden retrievers. lol

This is Bandit, a Papillion that we rescued. He is the oldest (11) and obviously the most well educated of our dogs. He just hates it when you interrupt him when he's on his iPad.

17916

This is Lexi, another rescue. She is a two year old Chihuahua, Beagle and some sort of terrier mix. Considering her jumping ability, I suspect that she is also part Kangaroo.

17915

Finally, this is Bree. She is a 7 month old Pomeranian puppy and is my wife's baby. She also rules the roost when it comes to the other dogs, lol.

Never really was in a situation to responsibly own a dog - the only pet I am interested in - but it looks like I will be moving again in 4 weeks and the people in the apartment below the new place have a puppy. I had lived there for a few months before and thought the puppy was really neglected, maybe I can wiggle my way in and at least help making the guy's life a bit more fun. He should be close to a year old now and craves attention, we'll see what the owners think. I may not be in any position to tell them what to so, but maybe I can spend some time with the dog and train him a bit. They have two very wild kids also and I cannot imagine that they educate their dog any better than their kids, so the pup could really use some guidance. Of course, the kids could use that also, but they are seeing a therapist and I hope for the best...
