:smitten: Doggssssss!!!!!

This is my big headed baby dog Scooby, he's a rescue from RSPCA southridge center in Hertfordshire.

He would like to add that he's not spoiled, it's just getting rather chilly now and a boy needs tucking up with his favourite teddy.

Okay, maybe he is spoiled.

^ This story gives me goosbumps.

I keep meaning to watch the film made about it, but I'm not sure I'm emotionally ready. Have you seen it Shyvas?

Aroung 20 times TreeHugger ! I have recorded it on my Sky box and watch it from time to time. It is a real
tear jerker but such a beautiful story about loyalty and unconditional love. I'm sure that you'd love the story.

^ OMG that just made me all teary. (jesus, I'm rather emotional today).

:sob:

It's technically just take on the "faithful hound" legend that a local hotel owner (or something) in the 1800s decided to tweak and ascribe to Beddgelert in order to attract people there.

But I still love the story.

I don't have any cute pictures to share, but dogs are amazing and I love them! I think I've been converted to a rabbit person but if I'm ever in a position where I'm working from home or otherwise know that I will be able to spend all day at home, I would like to adopt a dog. We were never allowed one as children because my mum (quite rightly) said that we would walk him lovingly for about two weeks then get bored, and she would be lumbered with him for the next 15 years. I think they are so enriching to a family and so adorable.

I love big dogs the most, they have that kind of awkward-gentle-giant thing going on. But I do have a special weakness for chocolate labs and blue staffs.

I am definately a dog person.
Ive been around dogs all my life. I grew up with 3 beautiful Golden Retrievers from being born. They were so kind and soft hearted.
Then we had border terriers. Our last family dog passed away 3 years ago and we havent gotten any more. My sister did get a black lab earlier this year.

I can't imagine my life without dogs. I need them.

I was raised by Basset Hounds. I think it explains a lot about me.

Haha mums always know best!

Blue staffs are stunning.

The bigger and uglier the dog, the better for me. I do have a soft spot for brutes.

Do you want a black staffie cross? He came in as a stray and he's looking for a home!



Not a very good photo because when he first came in he was very nervous, and now he won't stay still long enough for us to take a photo of him. :rolleyes:

Dogs and puppies are lovely (although I do prefer cats, sorry!) but I do hope to adopt more dogs in the future. :) They are so interactive and loving and I still browse the rescue forums daily and there are a disgraceful amount of dogs needing homes.:mad:
