Well, I love our doxie... tons of personality! Bark a bit much for my liking but she is definitely my favorite. Our chi is not typical, very social and loves everyone. Not the ankle biter attitude but being older not as playful. The scottie is your typical scottie. Not for everyone but :)

She's not the sharpest tool in the shed, but she's a big, drooly, cuddle bunny. I'm going to miss her when she passes, because she has the most unique personality of any dog I've ever met.
Yep that is pretty much a dane in a nutshell! Wish they had a longer life span but they are an awesome dog. Our next big dog will probably be an English Setter as husband wants to have some say and he would like a hunting partner :)

Lexi's 6 y/o, going on 7 in October.

I hope to have her until she's at least 10, but I know that might be pushing it.

Her mother is still alive at 9 y/o and her grandmother passed at 10, so she has good genetics and a pretty decent chance of making it to that age.

I just wished they lived longer, but I knew going in that their life expectancy is a lot shorter than other dogs.

I'll be devastated when she goes. She's so larger than life, and I don't mean just size wise!

Next dog I get will probably be a Standard Poodle. I don't know if I'll be able emotionally to have another Dane so soon once Lexi passes.

It is very hard to have the same breed for me. I have had one standard poodle in the past and she was a true sweetheart. I hate the constant plucking of the ears but it comes with the territory. I was thinking of an Irish Water Spaniel but have heart problems and I am not sure I can keep up with one any more :)

I've always loved English Springer Spaniels and hope to own one someday. My mom use to breed dogs and I learned to walk by holding onto our Springer Zoey's hair and she would walk around step by step so I could keep up. I took naps using her as a pillow and when my mom retired her from breeding and found her a home as a house pet for an elderly couple I cried for a month. Then one day at the groomers my mom arranged for us to be there at the same time she was. I was 4, walked through the door and saw her and started screaming her name, they had to let her out of her cage so she didn't hurt herself tryig to get to me. We got to play for a few hours whle my mom and the groomer talked and then she went back to her home with the older couple and I never saw her again but to this day I am still in love with Springer Spaniels.

Myth= Free/Cheap horses are expensive.
Indy was $150 we keep her in a pasture with a shed for free and she is brushed and fussed over dailey. Other then deworming and feet trimming she isn't costing us anything.

Other than the 9 horses on the property, (6 mine, 2 Amarea's, 1 Tracie's) I have too **** many animals! lol

7 dogs, 4 old fashioned Collies, 1 miniature Australian Shepherd and 1 Pomeranian, plus Amarea's 3 month old Collie pup

3 indoor cats (all gingers, I have a thing for ginger cats) and HUNDREDS of barn cats (no not really. 4 of my own and 3 of Amarea's)

7 fish, including the 6 in my big tank and the 1 beta in my son's little 5g tank upstairs

1 pet rat (again my son's)

and 24 chickens (well, 23 of my own, and then Trixie, a goofy looking, fro-headed, blue legged polish crested hen that is Tracie's)

Beautiful critters!

Your cat is very intriguing. What breed is that again? I love the unique look, I'm trying to convince my sis to get something different like this one cause they're so... well, unique xD
