    TZ Pets

    rik and I where chatting on Messenger about our pets and though it would be a good idea to start a thread so everyone can share.



    My dog Pepper is a Puggle (Pug and Beagle mix). She is a small 1 year old dog and very loving. Smart as a whip, she can set up, shake hands, fetch, lie down all with a little treat now and then.

    Any one elese want to share?

    My dog is my avatar. A 150+ pound bullmastiff. She chased a squirrel through my wood fence last winter. She's also chased a few Mormons and Jehova" Witnesses when they come calling.

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig

    I have Bantam chickens as my pets. They are friendly and they know what their names are (depending on their mood they approach when their names are called).



    I was really sad when my once fabulously proud male died due to old age:

    My buddy, "Buddy". He snuggles up to my neck all day and follows me around the house. Sometimes he will put a leg up on my neck just so he can get closer to me and rub his face on my neck.
    For breakfast he will fly to the kitchen, on his own, to take his place at the table. Sometimes, for lunch, he will leave me and find his way the the kitchen - I find him there eating.
    He has free roam of the house - cage is always open - but he prefers my shoulder at all times - even outside - I can ride my mt. bike and he will stay with me.

    There are also 3 cockatiels, 1 parakeet, 2 finches, 1 big lizard (forgot name) here (my neice and nephew abandon pets here). My dog died - was a large 130+ lbs Alaskan Malamute







    As a pup:

    Great looking dog Lynch! How many years did he last and what did he die of? We used to breed German Shepherds when I was much younger, but when our most intelligent and beautiful Shepherd died, my folks lost the taste for the business and quit.

    He was about 4 years and was hit by a car. I used to run him on 4x4 trails for "ungodly" amount of miles - he just kept on truckin' - If he got too far ahead he would stop in his tracks and wait to see me come around the corner then take off again.
    I buried him at his favorite run - a spot where you can see both the desert floor (looking east) and the pacific ocean (looking west) high on top a mountain.

    Oh yeah, I bought him as a puppy at 14 weeks for very cheap price (sold my marine aquarium) because he was bloated with worms and was basically the "runt" - but with good care and good food, he turned out fine

    We did have one opportunity to run him behind a wheel sled with a pack. It was fun but scarey - they hauled ass!

    He was a decendant (one of many) of the famous champion Malamute dog "Wooly Bully". http://www.alaskan-malamute.dk/Solo,...T,ch_inuit.htm

    One of his many cousins: http://pdg.sla-w.com/alaskansissukof.html

    I have a dog named "Tiger" She's a mongrel, vicious. and bites people on the ass and arms. I wouldn't trade her in for the world. She recently got fixed and had a doggie abortion because she had 9 puppies and there was no way in this world I can get rid of that many to the neighbors and so on.

    She's black and medium sized. She can sit, puts out her paw, and jumps up on your leg on command. She eats like crazy, about 2-3 10 pound bags of dogfood a week. She gets walked 2 times a day usually, has plenty of shade but has to be tied up all day because she bites people she doesn't know.

    She came to my house one day and begged for food. I broke out the frozen steaks and thawed them in the microwave. Tiger looked like she had lived in Ethiopia for years... She had a cut on her chest and was scruffy and mangy looking. Now she is healthy, has shiny fur and runs like crazy. She gets rabies shots every year, takes medicine for heart worms (soon she can stop), and otherwise enjoys a decent life.

    I will post pics of her as soon as I can. She's a wonderful dog. I hope she outlives me cause I sure don't want to see her die.

    Back in September me and the wife went on holiday for 5 days and left our German Shepherd "Lily" in boarding kennels. On our return the wife went to collect her from the kennels and Lily was her usual bouncy self.

    Whilst the wife was at the counter paying the fees Lily suddenly collapsed and subsequently died from a massive heart attack.She was a month away from her 12th Birthday.

    We had her cremated,and had her ashes scattered around the grounds of a local pet cemetary

    R.I.P

    That's all the firepower I was willing to let the young pup handle.
