I know what you mean - Jake the Bulldog is 10 now and has calmed down a lot but when he was younger he wasn't too fond of other dogs which is why I always kept him on a leash when we walked him on the beach(still do) Problem is that such a lot of other people let their dogs run free who would then run up to our dog and cause a whole lot of stress - whenever they said - oh our dog won't bite I would say BUT OURS WILL ! ! Fortunately these days he just turns his nose up at other dogs and ignores them :-)

Spot on...... it's not always the dog on the leash you need to worry about.
When I first moved out here in the country I was surprised how many people let their dogs run free. I had to say a couple times that it was not my dogs I was worried about when a loose dog came charging out of a yard up to my leashed dogs.
That's one of the reasons I hate those brace leads. I'd just as soon drop the leashes and let my dogs defend themselves if they need to, rather than having them shortleashed to each other.

They are all pretty good. We have a doggie door, so, they come in and out all day. At night, they are in our room or son's room. So, they are a tiny bit spoiled
It's fun coming home from work. Thank goodness the only one that jumps on you is the baby. She loves to hug and kiss you.
I would have a lot more if I had room and dh wouldn't kill me.

My sheba is not able to see or hear well either. Sad sometimes. She gets around ok, but, is starting to have difficulty not stumbling. I dread the day that is coming though.

TG- I dread it too, hubby says there will be no more dogs. I guess we'll just have to see about that. I've always had animals and don't know if i can go without one.
