And there are all those Saints, Newfs, and others that were my rescue dogs and I am their rescue mom...over 80. I've done my bit for unwanted dogs and loved them all. I've only had one puppy in my adult life--he was the thank you gift that the first Newf we rescued gave us. All the others were somebody else's cast-offs.
Beagle and I went on our walk tonight and we ran into one of her favorite boyfriends, a Black Mouth Cur, a massive dog that's patterned like a tiger. He's had several surgeries on his knees and hip, and his owner said he's about 7. He's recovering from his latest surgery, but loves everyone, and obviously his owners love him too!

I agree, if the only life for a dog is to be tied up, don't get a dog. That's no life. However, I suspect most of the DC gang might baby our furbabies a bit....

I would LOVE to get a Komondor, preferably black, and I would have a little Rasta hat for him, lol.

A good old mate, Mark had one, named Teddy. One of the most amazing, loveable, well tempered dogs I had ever seen. Smart too! REALLY SMART. The unique coat is certainly not something you see everyday, but it's surprisingly soft. I just loved that dog, and he was quite the conversation starter whenever I got to dog sit, and take him out to the beach.

I watched a special on Komodors, wow, the grooming and upkeep! They are really cool dogs, though.

Roe is so cute and she's my puppy of the moment and I can give her back to her Mom anytime. As an apartment dweller, I only get to dream.
