    Not done it with dogs but I've still got my cat Zippy, who almost made it to 21, in a wee tin box.

    Thanks for the thoughts regarding Hank guys. It's been a bizarre week, as you can imagine given his size, he was well know round these parts, we've had gifts, cards, flowers and the neighbours/postmen in tears.

    Amazing how much these big mastiffs (or any dog really) endear themselves to people, I've had less sympathy from people when a person died!

    Still deciding what to do about the vets, we're getting a second opinion currently before proceeding with anything. Not really sure what we'll do to be honest or even what we want out of it, I've drafted a fairly scathing letter to begin with, we'll probably just see what kind of reaction that gets before taking it any further.

    Hank was cremated, we didn't keep the ashes or anything, wife didn't seem keen and I'm not sure what we would have done with them anyway, short of spreading them in the garden.

    Just adopted a puffie (pug x staffy) from a shelter.

    Apparently he was found on the street after being abandoned by a shitcunt puppy mill operator who had been keeping him in a cage and using him as a breeding stud.

    The little guy has only been with me for two days but he's already making me ridiculously happy.

    I wish death and pestilence on the bastards who abused him, though.

    Fuck breeders.

    This is my second favorite picture of Norman, made even better by the inclusion of the kiddo.

    That's one happy looking pooch! Crop out the kid and you've got a great picture ;)

    @sirtacos We just picked up Thelma (an ex-breeding pug).

    She's 7 and doesn't have many teeth left in her head (from breeder neglect) and was initially very scared as she's lived her whole life in a cage. Now it's like she's having a second childhood - runs around like a pup, loves her toys and walks and treats. She goes crazy when we come home. I know it's not for everyone, but it's very rewarding having a rescue dog, particularly an ex-breeding one who's been written off.

    @anephric

    She's adorable! Good on you for giving her a chance. Special props for adopting an older dog, too.

    For a puppy mill pug she doesn't look overly brachycephalic, either, which is great, health-wise.

    Dogs are hard - ours can be such a little shithead - but goddamn if it's not the best decision I ever made. I'm happier now than I thought possible just a month ago and it's all thanks to this furry little asshole:



    That snaggletooth is cute as fuck btw

    He looks like a handful. Full of the proverbial beans, I imagine. Are his ears up all the time Frenchie-style or just when you're teasing him with a treat for a photo ;)

    Thelma may have a tiny bit of a snout, but she sounds like a fucking Vulcan bomber when she snores. Most pugs do, bless their horribly inbred restricted little airways.

    Our other dog's a rescue too (puggle). My missus will never go near a breeder again. Our last pug who died was a breeder cast-off too, but she was much younger because she was a bit of a runt and couldn't be bred from, so got dumped.

    @anephric He is a handful. But he's also a good-natured gentle soul, even by doggo standards (clingy as fuck though). His ears are constantly erect except when sleeping, being submissive, or when he wants to manipulate us with his cuteness (when his ears are down, he looks like a seal pup. It's totes adorbz)

    Glol @ the vulcan bomber line. Our dog does that too. He actually snores louder than my 100kg+ granddad used to... and he sounded like a drunk lumberjack with a rusty chainsaw duking it out with a sequoia.

    Good on your missus. Breeders are scum.

    We rescued a Greyhound a few months back, 5 years old, ex racer and gigantic. Our first pet, and having a lot of fun. Currently working on his nerves, he doesn't like strangers and avoid being petted unless they hang around and take their time - not the best as he attracts a lot of compliments so people instinctively want to give him a little pat on the head.

    Will stick a photo up later, anyway - good breed - lots of fun and surprisingly lazy. Suits me!

    Just got a WhatsApp from the missus, as she takes our husky out on walks about this time in the day. To quote;

    "Dylan's just killed two rabbits and a squirrel! :( We were over the fields and I let him off lead and he shot after one rabbit and caught it and then another and then a squirrel! What do I do? Should I bury them?"

    He's a good pupper, but, uh, she really shouldn't let him off lead somewhere where his prey drive can take over.

    This isn't EG's worst dog thread!

    That's fucking good going mind you... The GF's parents have a rabbit obsessed little Russell cross type thing and he's never even gotten close to catching one animal, never mind three on the same rampage!

    @HarryB Congrats and good on you for rescuing. Also greyhounds are obviously the best kind of dog*.

    *This opinion is based on my greyhound being the only dog I've ever had, but I stand by it.

    Greyhounds are great, we have had three. Here is the current one, Maggie.



    EDIT: No idea why she is upside down. She is the right way up in the original photo.

    @HarryB

    greyhounds are fab...rescued our exracer a year ago and he's still settling in, though mainly with smaller dogs out on walks...smaller, white, running dogs...;)

    great breed, though, and complements our rspca mutt very well...

    Yay for all the greyhound love. Great pics.

    Had ours for 3 years now. She's a big softy, loves fuss and hugs and she's got zero prey drive (in fact more often than not she's scared of cats/squirrels etc, not to mention other dogs). Love the daft lazy sod to bits.

    Like that sure. Now show us the blood smeared muzzle photo and then let's see how cut he looks. :-)

    We're in the process of rehoming this big bugger! We've passed the home inspection, I think, so just waiting for the SSPCA to get back in touch with us about the next steps.

  • Deleted user 13 October 2016 12:06:15
    What a dog!!! I'm guessing part Rottie

    That dog looks like he has a lot of character just by looking at his face.

    He's a Rottie cross. We think he's crossed with a lab, and he has the attention span of a Spaniel, being all curious and wanting to see everything. He's bloody strong, though! If my parents are dogsitting, I don't think my mum can walk him until he's better trained, but he seems receptive (in the 20 minutes or so I've spent with him)

    Now that is a gorgeous animal. We were interested in Huskies (although anything Spaniel or larger would do), and went to Glasgow to see about rehoming some. A family arrived to see them 5 minutes before we got there, and took them.

    Does a 3 month gap count as a double post?
    Anyway, after 3 months of vet checks, dodgy tummies and a tail amputation, we were finally able to take our boy home last weekend. He's mostly great, but goes nuts when he sees another dog. We don't think its aggression, but he's bloody strong, so we're going to take him to some classes, our priority being his socialisation.

    Here's two galleries of the past week.
