Hi there everyone
Just curious to know what different types of dogs you have owned through out the years, or if you have always stuck to a certain breed! Share your stories
When I was born there was already a family dog. His name was Jake, he was 2 yo, and he was a German Shepherd x Kelpie. He was so protective of me when I was little, if I fell over and hurt myself he would bark and howl until Mum came out! And he also saved our neighbours boat from being stolen! Believe it or not, he jumped the 6 foot fence and barked and growled (but didn't attack) the intruder until the neighbours came out! Sadly, when he was 12 and I was in year 6, he got severely bloated and bad arthirtis and we had to get him put down
Then when I was in year 7 Mum surprised me with an 8 week old Jack Russell! She was adorable, and so tiny! We named her Lucy She would always love to snuggle up under blankets and try and get my basketball in her mouth! But she would always eat the fish out of our pond
When Lucy was 5 we got another pup, an Alaskan Malamute x Husky, a beautiful female and named her Elka. She was huge, even at 12 weeks! She was very emotionally attached to me and would scream her little lungs out until I got home!
Sadly, in 2007 (as some of you may have seen) they were both killed by a Tiger Snake
THEN about a month later we got a new little pup and named him Axle! He is a Blue Cattle Dog, and you won't meet a bigger sook anywhere else! He was almost all white when we first got him, but now he looks like someone has tipped salt and pepper all over him! And he has a few tanned spots here and there He is a lazy dog who loves a belly rub whilst watching the Today Show! Axle will be 3 this year!
Not long after that my brother bought a pup, a little male, and he is a Kelpie x Border Collie and we named him Oscar He is adorable, and he will be 3 this year as well! His is a bit of a singer, and loves to have a howl for no apparent reason!
And finally, my step brother who lives with us bought a Boxer, who is just over the age of 1, and he is beautiful! He is very playful and is always looking for an excuse to be cuddled! He even tries to tempt Axle & Oscar to play when they are sleeping, by gently tugging on their ears and tails haha! But if Axle and Oscar get angry, watch out Saxon!
So thats my Doggy History! Whats yours!?
(ha, my fingers are exhausted frorm typing!)
