Twice this week, Greg and I have had a run-away dog wander into our yard. Tuesday night, Greg came home from the library with this pooch . . .
His name was "Mutley." We called the number on his collar, and his owner came right over to get him.
This morning, I woke up to a basset hound in our front yard. I didn't get a picture, but he pretty much looked like this:
We've been thinking of getting a dog for a while now (and by "we," I mean "Greg"). But we just can't come to an agreement on what kind to get.
I like golden retrievers like my cousin's dog (who is named in memory of our Papa's dog, "Buster").
See how good he is with my adorable, little cousin, Kingston?
My grandparents had some awesome dogs like Buster, Tippy, and Suzi. I do believe that Suzi was the only chow that I will ever love to cuddle in my lifetime.
My Aunt Janet's dog, Hudini, might be the cutest dog ever because he has an under-bite. Do they make dog retainers? Here he is with me and Suzi.
Greg doesn't want a long-haired dog. He wants a short-haired dog like a weimaraner, bull dog, or boxer. This is his sister's dog, Polly.
I love Polly to pieces, too. And her brother, Rizzo.
My sister has two labs, and we love labs other than how they chew up everything.
That's Max. His feet turn green when he walks through wet grass :)
And here's Jake. He's a cutie patootie, too.
Some other dogs that I don't have pictures of that are/were pretty much family members: Missy, Prissy, Ruffy, Duke, Sam, and Faux Pas (yes, we did have a dog named "Faux Pas").
But, "The Best Dog of All Time" Award goes to:
The one and only, irreplaceable, Butch!!!
So there are some of our dog loves, but we can't decide which kind to get.
We want a short-haired, medium to large dog, who is good around kids and other animals, doesn't have separation anxiety, won't tear up our house too much, won't shed, mild tempered, will cuddle up on my lap, will go hunting, will fetch, and will go for long walks with us. Are we asking too much? :)
