Here are my two current dogs: Princess is white, we think part Chihuahua and part minature Fox Hound. Lassy is the Beagle, we picked her cause we loved her eyes (well actually they picked us, weird how they do that). In fact, I think all of our dogs picked us. We would go to look at them, and one would always approach us out of the pack and almost instantly start bonding.
The last one is Ophelia, my Springer Spaniel, she passed away last year after only 14 years with her. She was special, where I went she went and would never leave my side (including in the bathroom!). The most loyal dog I have ever owned, and I wasn't supposed to own her! The breeder made a mistake and delivered her even though the wife had already picked a Cocker Spaniel and we had canceled the order for the Springer Spaniel. I went to see her anyway, and the store owner was concerned as she was cowering in the back of the cage and would not respond to anyone. I opened the cage and she lept into my arms like she had been waiting for me, even gave me a stern "what took you so long?" look.
What a wicked looking cat, and I mean that in a good way. And that boy's blue eyes are beautiful!
Since the thread was rekindled I'll post my newest addition. She's been with us for a while but I'm not sure I posted her in this thread. I wanted a friend for Aspen but didn't want another dog so I searched for months for a cat that was used to dogs. She was fostered with a house full of dogs. Her name is Cricket but I just call her Cat lol. I didn't like the name and couldn't come up with anything else...
