Exclamation The Show Your Pet Thread

This is Steve-o my rabbit. I can't have a dog or a cat because I work 12 hour shift and I'm gone for like 15 hrs at a time and there is nobody to look after a dog. But Steve-o is fine in his cage as long as I keep him well supplied with food!

I want a Blackhawks bandanna for her for the upcoming season but they're hard to get this side of the pond and my father hates it when I put stupid clothes on the dog.

Thank you (i'll pass on the compliment )
She's the most gentle creature - and yet Rotweiler's have a terrible reputation - we've had many dogs but she above all of them I know is least aggressive (and we've had some meek animals) because she is so confident of her own strength she's rarely scared of anything - never bites the vet or anything- and so never lashes out. She can play rough and I've seen her get angry at other dogs, but she's never snapped at us out of fear.
Duchess is a fine animal. have you pictures of your other 14? (14! I thought we had it big with 6 at one time - now only three, sadly)

Critters!

These are our furry children. The dogs are both Retrievers, pics were taken last January:

The "white one" is an 8 yr. old female pure bred English Cream Golden Retriever, a gift at 5 months old to my wife from our neighbour; he died a month later. Her name is "Lady Shiloh", aka "Girlie", aka "Miss Monroe".
Shiloh.jpg

The "black one" is a 6 yr. old male cross between a female pure bred American Golden Retriever, and a pure bred male Black Labrador Retriever. I picked him up on a local Pottawatomie Reserve, his name is "Beauregard", aka "Beau", aka "BoBo".
Beauregard.jpg

The cat is a 2 yr old male Long Haired Orange Tabby (our last one was "taken" by a local Fisher) he goes by "Ferguson Tecumseh Sherman", aka "Furg!" You'll note that he likes to read the paper with me, and climb into my gitch when I'm sitting on the shitter!

You can't top ...

... Black Labs! After experiencing pure-bred related health problems & expenses with a female Irish Setter (that still lived 13 years) I opted for Black Lab crosses. Bobo, the "Black Golden Retriever" as our Vet says, is our third. The first (Nicky) was from a female Black Lab & male English Field Spaniel; all black smallish Lab, with longer hair. He lived 16 years and is buried out back; the ultimate dog.

Having some experience with Orange Tabby males, I bet George runs the roost? Or at least the Labs let him think so?
