This is Brisbane. He is nine years old and mostly Queensland heeler/Australian cattledog. His hobbies include screambarking, biting stuff, lurecoursing, chasing balls and biting them but not retrieving them, and agility. The DNA test revealed that his father was a mix of American Staffordshire terrier, bullmastiff, and Cavalier King Charles spaniel. This is Ru. He is a four year old chihuahua and not actually a dog as far as I can tell. I used to think chihuahuas would act like regular dogs if they were treated like reglular dogs, and then I got a chihuahua. Ru lives on an electric heating pad year-round and I can count on my fingers the number of times I have witnessed him panting. He is probably some sort of lizard. Sometimes I dye him pink. This is Ulysses. He is a five year old mostly heeler, probably mixed with Australian shepherd. He was pulled from the Orange County shelter in early May and has been adopted and returned twice. He and Brisbane have been butting heads and I am headed over to the training forum to ask for advice while we crate and rotate. He always makes that face.
