Out of all my dogs Shadow was everybody's favorite. He was a huge black lab, 110 pounds and none of it fat. But he was a gentle giant, everybody loved him, he was very intelligent and very loving.

Shadow was actually my youngest daughters dog, we got him for her when she was eight or nine years old. Other than a year when she lived out of state and took Shadow with her, he lived in my house. I hunted, trapped and fished with him and my daughter.

He died at thirteen several years ago, I still miss him a bunch.

Rusty was the best friend I ever had. I loved him and I know he loved me too.

So do I, really hate such posts but can’t not look, every time I loose a good dog I swear it will be the last one and will never get another, but life without a dog in it is an empty thing, in the short time they are with us they give so much and ask nothing but a rub or occasional petting or just to lay next to us for a bit

Remi(Remington) was the best dog I’ve ever had. 1/2 border collie and 1/2 red healer. She had the brains of the border collie but was less sensitive. I swear that dog spoke English and new what I wanted from her. I miss her dailly, unfortunately she got run over and I’ll never understand why she crossed the road like that she never never did that I had educated her that was bad from the time she was a pup. Would ride on anything with me but the lawnmower, and would get on it if I told her to

Wish I could find another English Setter , like my Grandfather had. He bought him in 1949 , for $200.00 . Don't know what that works out in today's money. But, from what I heard, he was the big , old blocky style of English Setter. He could really hunt the Pheasants!


Here he is, at the age of 17 years old.

I could post, but with my hands it would take a while. I was not like those who posted, I was raised a dog was a tool to accomplish putting food on the table.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Just remember that pet names are one of the most common password recovery questions, so use something else for a security question, if you share the names anywhere on line.

I like a dog that has a job and is useful. But the two I have now well my German shepherds job is a watch dog and let's us know when anyone is around the house she sees everything. No on will come in thw house unless we tell her they are ok. She is getting old, moves stiffly, and is getting tumors popping up now. She won't get more than 80 yards from the house any more.
. Our border collie is the most spoiled family dog. I have no idea what I will do with my wife when her dog dies. She is a useless dog . She won't bark unless the German shepherd does first, she was never trained to herd I wis she/we were. She is the most jealous dog I have ever seen. Better not try to pet another dog or even a cat or she will try to slid between you or get in the other animals face.

A dogs purpose I have learned can be a companion only and that's ok. I still prefer a dog with a job for a companion.
If I ever get a job where I'm at home every day and not traveling I will get a new pup that's mine. But I'm not sure what for yet. I only have a few quail but love German shorthand pointers. I like rabbit hunting but don't have enough area to go and I hunt deer most of rabbit season. Plus beagles just are not what I'm looking for for a dule purpose companion. A deer tracking dog would be nice but we don't have trouble finding our deer.
Maybe a Schutzhund / IPO training dog seems fun but a lot of work for me to learn.

All my dogs have been working dogs (hunters). All have also been great companions and part of the household.

This was Sammy my St. Bernard, and as an adult his weight was 219 pounds. I couldn't have asked for a better friend for the 13 years we shared together.

My last and "final" was Roscoe.
I could never expect another dog to be even close to him.
Truly incredible in every way.

Just can’t…I will say his passing had my entire family, neighbors, and his life long vet in tears when we had to put him down. My only question to God is “Why can’t our pets live as long as we do?”

Had a English Setter Female, was Blessed to have Her for a bit over 13 years. She was a Grouse/Woodcock Hunting Machine and Truck/Quad riding Partner. Think of Her often - RIP Izzy !

and now Cindy were all the best of the 150+ hunting dogs I have owned. None were house dogs but became close companions on the hunt. Owned and hunted with many of their littermates. In these last 50 years I've owned Labs, Goldens, G. Shorthairs, Britts, Fox-Airedale-Irish-Border and German (Yak) terriers, along with a ton of hounds and a fistful of rescue mixed breeds. A hunt never goes by w/o me thinking of one of these special 8 in a similar situation. Cannot pick just one.............................. the mike

Same here. I think you get a better hunting dog when it is your friend. Not just rode hard and put up wet in the kennel


Gotta live up to the nickname...
