Well I guess there are a lot of people here that dont know me from other forums.. so I'll post my dogs! This is Bailey. She is a 5 year old beagle. I was told she is AKC, but it doesnt matter to me. My SO brought her home from San Diego for me in 2004 because a girl he knew gave her to a guy they knew, and his friends would come over and THROW her against the wall JUST to hear her yelp. So the girl took her back when she found out, and my SO asked if he could bring her home to me because I had seen her when I visited and fell in love with her. This is Kody. He is going to be 2 years old on July 20th. He was sadly purchased from a BYB before I really knew about BYB's. BUT he was well taken care of, had his dew claws removed and whatnot, and he is very much loved in his home here. i got him at 7 weeks, and he has been attached to me ever since. My smartest dog, he knows many tricks including sit, shake, down, roll over, ask, wave, high five, and leave it. He is my baby boy. Chance. Chance has a very long story. I will sum it up. After I got Kody, I wanted a big dog, so we looked yet again in the paper. saw an ad for GSD's for $150 which clued me off right there. Decided out of curiosity to go look at the puppy anyway. Bad neighborhood, skittish large dogs in the backyard, all unaltered... then this little ball of fur comes out from under a table. He was a mess, filthy. Looked very sick, I decided to take him because I felt so bad. Took him home, took him to the vet the next day- he had parvo. 7 days and $4,600.00 and nothing but attitude from the guy I got him from. Oh well, its in the past and he's a great dog. This is Moose. He is really SO's brothers dog, but they both lived with us for a while, and when SO's brother moved back home, he brought Moose with him. He's a shelter puppy, and he really is the most well behaved dog you could ask for. So thats us.
