Cute dogs! (in one case, very big cute dog!)

I'd love a dog, but since I'm at work all day, it's not fair on a dog to leave it alone for that long.  I'm too far away to go home at lunchtime, and to be honest, even leaving a dog by itself all morning and afternoon, with a brief walkies at lunchtime doesn't seem fair five days a week.

At least an adult cat can amuse itself (ie sleep!) all day.

Still, keep the dog piccies coming, so I can vicariously enjoy all your dogs!
Actually, it is rocket science.

I like him - reminds me of our late wire haired fox terrier. Lovely dog.

You'll have to wait for mine. Marley the black Labrador arrives in four weeks.

A Pointer was considered but the Labrador preferred. I did mention the 'Oirish terrier Simonali but when it was mentioned he might look askance if he was asked to fetch sticks, he was rejected. So we've ended up with a very safe choice.

When we went to pick him, we had to wade through tons of certificates about parents health and grandparents health, all in a bid to breed out the eye and hip problems Labs have.

I shall probably be asking advice soon.

In my experience of terriers, he will probably go and fetch sticks happily but will not give you them back  ;D

Yup, he sure does.

I mostly call him "Filth" rather than "Morphy" these days  ;D

Got it in one!

Once the thrown ball/stick etc leaves your hand, the game immediately changes to 'chasing a dog round a field trying to get chucked thing back again'!

I didn't think my mums terrier was unusual. It's easier if you get other dogs to do the chasing of the terrier for you.

He's not daft. If you offer him a biscuit as a swap he'll bring the ball back!

Great photo   :D ;D

And it would appear this (and the close up of your avatar) may have swung the "what new dog as a friend for Charlie?" decision  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:  It'll be a few months yet, but there was lots of "awww-ing" going on - it's taken long enough!  ;D

Good idea, Border Collies are such lovely dogs.

I'll give 'em one thing, they stand still for photos. Scruffter (for that is his name) just stands still and poses, whilst Riley arses about. We got loads of shots of a posed collie and a blurred IT!

That's done it. Irish Terriers are joining my list of possible dogs to own next year. So far there are:

Border Collie
Black Lab
Airdale

and now the little Irish fella.

I'ts going to be a tough decision.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
