I can remember every one of my dogs that I have had from my first to my last.
Goldie & Pancho - labradors. Goldie was the first dog I remember as a small child with Pancho coming along some time later. Goldie was my best friend.
Bobby - shih tzu. Great little playmate.
Saph and Chief - German Shepherds. Very playful dogs, Chief was a big, gentle giant.
Squeak - another German Shepherd but we only had her a little while. At 4 months old she escaped our yard went for a child walking on the street. My mum surrended her to the RSPCA. I really hope they found a good home for her.
Bimbo - jack russell. Brilliant and most intelligent little dog. I am sure he understood every word we spoke to him. Sooo much energy, he'd go ALL day chasing anything that we threw for him. Caught rats and mice and tried to protect my sister (who was 4 at the time) from a pair of cattle dogs who ran towards her barking. Bimbo ran in between her and the dogs and even pulled one down to the ground. Of course my parents intervened and stopped any further issues. We had no fences around our yard so wandering dogs and even Bimbo running off after dogs was always an issue until mum & Dad finally got the yard completely fenced in.
Then I left home and was dogless for many years until Tigga - German Shepherd joined my family in 2001. He died 3 weeks after his 10th birthday, just last month.
Asher - blended, large dog, coming tomorrow. Will add a little profile of him when I've met him.
