So my criteria was young (1ish), female, lab/lab mutt. We brought Buddy home with us today and he is none of the three criteria! :) He is a four year old, male, Yorkie/Yorkie mutt. My wife made the decision, but I didn't resist.

Awwwwww, look at that cute little fella...

Buddy might be small, but from what I know of Yorkies they are just bundles of energy! And as small as dogs their size are they produce a lot of heat, so he should keep both you and your wife warm in bed at night. Because your bed is where he'll be sleeping, right? :razz:

PS - Hi ya from another Yorkie... I took care of this one earlier this summer for three weeks while her parents were traveling overseas, even at 10 years old she kept me busy!

Smart man to not resist wifey. I never had a Yorkie but friends or other family who had them were nice pooches.

@tricrider: now that is a nice looking little girl. She looks like made that post.

He was, and still is every weekend (and then some), great company. I am smitten. He is the first doggo that I have ever allowed to lick me all over. Except lips. Lips are forboden. Otherwise wifey has problem with that. So I just roll my lips under and he covers everywhere around that. You know, to help the dog's psyche. I hear licking creates good endorphins. It must be true cuz he can lick me not just for mere seconds, but for a couple minutes without stopping. We have fun toy play times too, like clockwork, always after meals.

Happy thanksgiving all. Pets included!

Great to hear your and jmd's dogs are working out and you're enjoying them!

Speaking of pocket-sized pooches...

I've been babysitting a chihuahua for the last couple of nights because her owner went out of town for Thanksgiving, naturally I let the pooch sleep on my bed under the covers. Not only did it take her forever to burrow and get comfortable, she also snored!

I didn't get a wink of sleep, but that's a'ight, I love her anyway. :)
 
This pocket pooch (aka Tumbleweed, Mr. Grinchfooty) typical with disheveled look from getting wet (mostly by drinking) before grooming:


Or sometimes he gets wet this way (cold on the rudder):


After pet grooming (no more Mr. Grinchfooty, for now):

You'd think YEEEHAA as in 'get me outta here' or 'which way to the door inside'. He actually seems to enjoy the snow as long as it's not too deep for him. But this picture seems to say otherwise:

Yo, Mr. Tumbleweed - as long as you're not overcooking those turns please do enjoy the snow for as long as you can!

(Pssst - it's a huge secret between those long-haired dogs that are actually supposed to be pillow dogs, sometimes they do actually enjoy rolling in the snow.)

Anyhoo, all facetiousness aside - that doggie looks great, welcome to the CN kennel!

Paw-five from the Tobster.

In less than three months of service, German shepherd Luke has sniffed out a total of €745,000 ($847,070) while patrolling the Düsseldorf airport in western Germany, German customs agents said in a statement.

The canine was recruited in February 2018, at two years of age, and then entered a lengthy program that taught him to track down large amounts of cash based on the bills' scent. He graduated in December and made 12 successful busts before the end of February.

"Luke is a valuable helper in controlling cash smuggling," customs spokesman Michael Walk said. "Considering his successful debut, we are excited about what his rate of success will be in the future."

Apologies, am not sure what this means being I speak only Yank English, I take it this woman is instructing you and your dog to pick up other people's trash?

As far as Toby goes, here we go again. After his latest exam it turns out one of his kneecaps (or ligaments that join the knee) is busted, there were already signs and symptoms. So in he goes for another surgery. He's an aging dog, but otherwise healthy, so let's fix this knee up no matter how much it costs, shall we?

Surgery scrub-in is next Tuesday at 8am - you better do your worst, Toby, you hear?
 
Hullo, my name is Toby, and I've got a bum knee.

I'm not asking for any money (cause my owners have at least that much), but I would like to ask for your kind thoughts or vibes, and whatever else.

Wish me luck at my latest surgery, and always Paw-Five,

The Tobster

sorry! my laziness................collie 'called' brock.........would follow instruction to retrieve litter

round here there are so many dogs...yesterday pip's friend came thundering over from far..jumped up
and kissed me on the chops despite me being 6' +

how noble toby looks in that pic......puppy toes crossed all goes well

he has my sympathy...right now i'm on reduced walks after straining my ankle...........luckily it's on the mend
...and right now weathers pants anyway...yesterday snow cold....today rain cold
 
This is a message from Toby, as translated by his human owners.

Hullo, thank you all for your kind thoughts and messages... I suppose riding a tricycle was not the best of ideas. Ah well, I always try to please my owners (who can barely ride a bicycle!), just as long as they feed me well! :)

And now back to the humans...

Thank you all also for your kind messages - naturally I'm rather nervous and worried about Toby's latest surgery. But, if he wasn't in such good shape otherwise I would have never agreed to it.

So, Paw-Five from us both, and we'll keep you posted,

The Tobster and TR
