after recent sad loss of my faithful friend i'm happy again...

I found picking a new dog rather daunting....just too many choices...

I wanted a smaller dog than previously one that enjoyed long walks and was robust and healthy

so I went for a lurcher type this one pip is small ...collie / norwich terrier X

she's just so sweet and loving...even though she did steal my sandwich when my back

was turned....she's 5 months....previous owner could not keep her their landlord

said that they were allowed only 2 dogs not 3!

Well hullo there, sweet lady. You know I'll be making my moves on you before you even know it! (No worries, actually, my balls had been removed when I was about six months old. Nonetheless...)

Paw-five,

The Tobster

PS - Very much kudos to you for taking in a rescue, Mark! :cool:

I was bitten on my wrist when I was a little kid, had myself a cry. But that didn't stop me from loving dogs forever and ever.

On a different note - had never heard of these Egyptian Baladi dogs before, they seem pretty cool.

thanks! those who welcomed pip...most of all TR for fave post of the month

pip has settled in so quickly and is no trouble...even though i'm remembering those things one should
not do with a young dog around

...and she's quite a 'lil runner....i'm trying but falling short in efforts to keep up!

Mark L

but zam bet you have been struck / hurt by other humans way more than any dog..i have been bit quite
a few times..............no big deal...still love all dogs

this pic depicts pips character well...and her blue right eye (blue merle heritage)

and she so loves to play....and chew too..often combining both jumping on my unsuspecting
toes..........and having a quick chew

but mostly she's so calm even when postie calls...

She's such a beauty, I can definitely see the terrier ears on her. (Otherwise she's very leggy, but what's wrong with a long-legged lady?)

Paw-five, and welcome to the kennel,

The Tobster :)



Speaking of terriers (or terrier mixes)...

Toby's rash came back last week, despite flea treatments and frequent baths he was starting to chew on himself again. So, took him to the vet just yesterday... vet was cool. We agreed Toby should just have a shot of that long-lasting antihistamine he got back in December - no antibiotics or ear-drops were needed this time. Thank goodness!

So far so good, who knows what Toby is allergic to? (Could be food, could be all the spring pollen, could be all the crap people are spreading around on their lawns at this time of year [herbicides].)

Either way, as long as Toby's not miserable I won't be miserable.
