Sadly, I no longer have my dog. He was taken unexpectedly ill and I had to have him put to sleep just before his 4th birthday; a few weeks back now. We're just about over the shock and have decided that after Christmas we'll be getting another. He is missed though.

Sorry to hear your dog has passed away Rebbonk I hope your new dog after Christmas brings you as many happy memories as the one who had that has just died.

:thumbsup:

I've had dogs all my life (apart from when I was married), but the last one, although the shortest lived, was undoubtedly the best. He'll take some replacing.

The biggest issue we have though is that neither of us are youngsters. Big dogs take a lot of handling, but neither of us are small dog lovers. At present we're talking about Japanese Akitas (as Spencer was) or German Shepherds (we've had two of them together and several each before we got together). But put a big brown eyed puppy in front of her and anything might happen.

Do you mean eyes like this. Rebbonk lol it is a smalish dog but can be bigger than this I ve seen them in Black needs just a little exercise a run in the garden will do it and does nt malt either I would sooner have a dog that suites my needs than have one I could nt cope or handle as that would be cruel to the dog. I ve always checked out the dogs needs first I use to exercise and train my dogs up Coundon park.

Or there is a Red Setter or my favourite the Golden Retriever I ve had German Sheperd s also a Springer Spaniel very lively dogs the springer also I ve had mungrels which are hard to come by now but they have the best temperaments and stronger in health.

Kidney failure got her. Not a day's illness whilst I had her until that struck.

She had a lovely temperament and everyone who met her found her a delight. I could leave her all day alone in the house and it didn't bother her, but if the two of us took her out and one of us went to the bar she'd get quite upset at being left. But by God did she moult.

I didn't know you knew Shorty. I've not seen him for a very long time now. Is he still around?
