Anyone else have a "shop dog" or four legged best friend?

  1. Along with BBQ dog training is a passion of mine. Our shop dog is Gunner an 8 month old Belgian Malinois. Both of his parents are working police dogs. He is probably the most fearless dog I have ever owned. He goes everywhere with me and sits in front seat of the truck and jumps in the bed when we get where we are going to look after the welder and tools.

    Hey Top

    Haven't talked to you before--welcome.  You should go to roll call and tell us a bit about yourself.

    Seems like most of the members on this site have a best friend or two.  Here's mine.  Two great black labs and a demon spawn cat.  In this pic they arre all patiently waiting for a treat.


  3. Did roll call already yesterday- but thanks for the welcome !!!

    You should see them "chase" the deer. It's hilarious. The brown one sleeps on his back and snores.

    Yeah, mine chase deer all the time.  They're allowed to eat anything they kill.  In 4 1/2 years that would be 1 rabbit and a half dozen mice.  Truly vicious killers, these two.  LOL

  10. This one's mom was famous for dragging down leftovers from field dressed deer. I woke up one morning and thought she dug up a turtle... it was the frozen deer liver....

    Another time she tore off the entire hind quarter of a deer we had hanging. I jammed what was left of the bones in the can and left a note for the garbage man. Never dull around here.

    Hey Cappy

    It is ALWAYS very sad to loose a good friend.  I was never a dog person, but having my two for the last 4 1/2 years, I can't imagine life without them. I would miss Linda's Addy, but I would be lost without my Roxy.  Linda took both of them with her one weekend when she went to Calgary to see her folks.  I was constantly looking around for them, wondering where they were.

  16. I know how you feel, if Gunner is not with me in the truck it just does not feel right. 
  17. Here's my pal. The terror of North street, that is if you think you'regoing to sleep in on the weekend. I can't believe how loud this little beagle can be.
