    She's just as likely to come when called "Muppetgirl" as she is "Delia." Here she is in her Muppety glory last summer:
    Oh, so I forgot to add this today.......I have an Aussie x lab ........weird..... but she looks like a border collie

    Well since you are all sharing your faithful pooches....

    This is Oscar (brindle) and Kia (red), both are (obviously) boxers. Oscar was my heart dog, love of my life, and I cried for about 3 solid days when he died Kia hasn't been the same since, she misses him terribly too.

    When I was expecting our oldest, my inlaws went on a rampage that we MUST get rid of these dogs, they would attack the baby... yup.... they sure look wicked to me

    To help Kia not be so lonely, we took in a homeless pup named Carley, so's sweet but I don't think there is too much between the ears They get on well, Kia is very much the dominant dog but there are very few arguements.

    Unfortanetly I think this is Kia's last winter, she lost a good bit of weight this year (she is 9) and I have serious question marks about keeping her going much longer at all.... tough tough tough decisions. She's content and happy, still jumps around like a puppy but I'm not happy with her weight.

    Yay puppies! Cute pooches guys! Since we're sharing the furbabies, here's mine.

    Our Deutsch Kurzhaar, "Dell Vom Gansehimmel" aka Dell or more affectionately known as "Smelly Delly". Someday I want to be able to say I've imported a horse but for now I'll have to settle for my dumb butt imported dog. Dell is our family dog and my hubby & I's hunting partner. He's a very good boy but does tend to be a big dumb oaf a lot of the time. He's extremely loving and walk through fire loyal, especially towards DH. We are currently talking about purchasing him a girlfriend but finding a female that I like confo wise with a master hunter title has proven a bit of a challenge.

    These pics are what got me when I was puppy shopping. He was so darn cute!

    He's also my daughter's big buddy. They've grown up together, he wasn't quite a year old here and she wasn't quite 2. (hence the really cute bruise on her forehead...she went from crawl to run and hasn't stopped yet lol.)

    And his favorite things to do -
    He loves the water, especially when he has something to retrieve out of it. He'll swim after dummies in the pond all day. With his gigantic heart girth and lung capacity, he never tires.

    And hunting. This is the "Dad, did I do good? Huh? Huh?" look.

    That's pretty much what they are. Just reg'd with the verband in Germany. They have a strict stud book system and have a lot of testing. A friend describes them as "old blood" though I don't know if there's any validity to that. I tell my hubby it means idiot - he's an awesome hunter but he's kind of dense lol. We bought Dell because his parents are both master hunters and he is what history said he should be. Even being reg'd DKV he can be crossed with an AKC shorthair female and pups can be reg'd AKC.

    Very cool that your dad & granddad raised & trained bird dogs. My dad is a dog guy too. When I was younger he raised rotties and did schutzhund/s&r/drug sniff & seizure training. Now he trains upland bird dogs and every once in awhile a duck dog. He has a Drathaar.

    Haha well I thought my eyes were deceiving me!! A couple of the females we had were very good guard dogs....not sure why they were that way, they were socialized well and never encouraged to display aggression an act on it, they took chunks out of bums when people wandered in the yard after ignoring the 'Beware of Dog' sign......one of them lived until she was 21. They also would climb (if they could) a tree to get a possum......I think they were wired wrong, those two at least' there was no inbreeding that I am aware of, but they were purchased from another breeder.....so hmmmmm. Very loyal though!!!

    I've met a few that were wired wrong over the years lol. My grandpa had a female when I was a kid that was super protective. If they were home she greeted everyone with a wagging tail. If they weren't, they didn't get out of their cars. 21, that's amazing! I had to have my female pts last summer. She was 16. I got her as a birthday gift from my dad when I was in high school. Best dog ever.

    RIP Hannah Banana (M was trying on one of my mom's 10 gallon show hats from the late 60s )
