    Talking That first moment with your first dog tales.

    I wanna hear about your very first dog. The first moment you saw them !!!

    I kinda adopted my neighbours dog 'Nanook' a big white Husky when we first moved to Australia. I'd come home everyday and ask my parents for my own dog. Drove them nuts !!! It wasnt till a few years later when i was about 9, we settled into our own home on the Gold Coast that my dad came home and said to have a look in the big box outside.

    It was a box that washing machines come in and since that was he dealt with at work i thought 'wow, a bloody new washing machine' 'big deal' !!

    As i got closer i heard a scratching noise and the box moxed a bit !!!

    I'll never forget standing on my tippy toes and peeking over the edge. A cute little black face staring back at me.!!!...

    I couldnt get him out fast enough and was soon getting licked all over from a hypo little Pound puppy, a 3 month old Labrador Retriever.
    We named him 'Storm' and he was my bestest buddy for the next 12 years.
    I've only got film photos of him but one of these days i'll buy a scanner and bombard you all with photo's of his big black mug !!

    So what was your first dog and how old where you ?

    The first dog I grew up with was my mothers dingo X heeler but he was always just there I don't remember the first time I saw him lol
    the first dog I remember getting I was about 12 and Mum's dingo X was about 10 years old so getting old. Mum picked me up from school and drove me to a random house in the neighborhood as I walked threw the door a fat blue and white cannon ball took out my legs. I picked the puppy up to give him a hug and he peed all down my school uniform lol I didn't bother looking at any other puppies as I was sure that puppy chose me. Bear is still going at nearly 12 years

    The first dog in my family I remember was Sheba, a bitsa. SHe was very protective of my brother and I. I can't remember much, as she passed away when I was about 6 or 7. One story I remember being told is that when we lived in Dalby, I must have been about 4 maybe and my brother was about 2 or so. My mum was in town at work and my dad was meant to be looking after us but he fell asleep (he was a cop, must have been on nightshift), anyway...he gets a knock on the door by a truck driver, asking him if he has a little boy.

    Dad was like" yeah but he's having a nap"
    It turns out my little bro was walking into town to see mum lol. The truck driver (thankfully he was a nice bloke), had been driving along the road and he spotted a toddler walking with a dog beside him. When he went to pick my brother up, the dog growled.

    Sheba was a great dog, so kind and gentle from what I can remember.

    Porgy was a large lean black lab X. He was given to my sister as a puppy and as she was living at home Mum had to be won over. He had a great line in sad eyes that did the trick. He also adored my Mum and when we went swimming someone had to sit on the beach holding him or he would insist on rescuing her by grabbing her bathers with his teeth and dragging her back to 'safety'.
    He was raised by our cat who had him toilet trained within 2 weeks by scolding him for accidents and boxing his ears in disgust. The same cat would spend at least 2 hours of an evening washing this large 25kg dog from head to toe very carefully.
    We lost him to parvo in the 1960's. I adored him and would sneak him into my bed whenever I could get away with it.
    He was 100% reliable on lead as long as he held it in his mouth ( not clipped to his collar, you could do that then)

    I don't really remember much about my first dog as i was very young. But i remember my Toby, he was a maltese. he was soo cute and he made friends with my rabbit. They used to run around the yard together. and were best friends. I got him off my aunty because she didnt want him anymore and she was going to get him put down. :/ Which isnt cool i convinced mum to take him
    No one loves you like your dog does.

    My first dog that was mine only (not a family dog) was Cyrus.
    I bought him from a great breeder but had only seen 2 photos of him before he arrived.

    He was 1000x better than I thought.
    We went to the airport and went to the live animal freight section.
    I saw him on the baggage train in a crate and the attendant cut the cable ties.
    I took him out and his tail was going 100 miles an hour.

    Love at first sight.

    My parents aren't dog people, none of my family really are. I loved all animals as a kid, still do and I reeaallly wanted a dog but my parents never got one. I remember being so desperate for a dog that I would stare into the sun hoping I would go blind so they'd have to get me a guide dog. I knew all the dogs in the street and would go and play with them, I even used to catch and return the one down the street that constantly got out. Needless to say as soon as I got my own place, pets were first on the list, and lots of them
