That is one beautiful dog.
thats exactly what i said, but my post disappeared as well.
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.
No matter how high the throne,
there sits but an ass.
knyfeknerd, sorry to hear about the loss of your Georgia, it's something I've had to do too many times before and it always sucks. Funny about the farts though, my buddy also has an EB who as weapons-grade farts... almost as bad as my buddy's farts... I feel very sorry for his wife.
Here's my girl: Mathilda (Tilda), the Belgian Malinois
when she was just a little one (<1yr):
with her friend the boxer:
a game she made up...don't think the boxer wants to play:
"I gotta tell ya, this is pretty terrific. Ha hahaha, YEAH!" - Moe (w/ 2 knives). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVt4U...layer_embedded
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.
Justin, I just love those Malinois. If I could get away with having a dog instead of just having cats... (Although I love our cats. They are wonderful.)
I'm laughing. Just realized that I posted three (now four) times in this thread. I guess I like animals. They are awesome. Irony being that I'm the protein guy at work. I'm the butcher and I like it. I don't have a problem with the contradiction, but on the surface it's a bit odd. Try to square that one...
