I saw the exact same thing. When I was finally able to take my eyes off of what looked like a Beagle on the far left (CUTENESS!!!), I thought, "Hey! What's gorgeous Davey Long Legs doing on George's couch???"

115lbs. OMG You're kidding right? I can't imagine her that big. I have never had a rottie and I have only seen them on TV. I wanted another lap dog. But my husband got her for protection because he is away alot. I also have a brown dalmation and a cocker spaniel. No protection there! 115lbs huh! I hear they are very smart. Is that true? Cause sometimes I think she knows what I'm thinking.

115 lbs it is, and she THOUGHT she was a lapdog. She used to love to get up on your laps or just lie next to you watching TV. They are extremely smart but professional training is definitely a good idea. This one was trained and she was great. The biggest problem I had with her was with carriages or bikes. Anything with wheels. I would have to put on my eagle vision and spot anything with wheels within a mile away so I could wrap the leash on anything I could find. I was with someone at that time and she really listened to him so he would do the night walks.

She died of breast cancer a few years ago.

I have pictures of her but will have to scan them to post. She was gorgeous, to me anyway. :-)

Default Here's my dog Haley

Any idea what her mix is? I'd love to know.

Proof dogs do smile:

Oh my gosh, Haley's a cutie-pie, that's for sure! I don't know what her mix is, but she does bear some similarity to Artie (pictures on my profile album) who is a -- supposedly -- a Lab/Beagle (or Bassett) mix.

She sure is adorable, though, whatever her ingredients are!

Here's my boy Cheese (came with the name). Lab and Rottie mix as far as I can tell, no doubt has something else mixed in there with the white spotted bib and milk mustache. He was turned into the Humane Society with a bulging damaged eye, which they eventually removed to make him "prettier", but I still thought he was adorable with and without it.

Awwwww!!! "Hi Cheese!!! You've melted my heart." (get it? or is it too early for bad puns? either way, Cheese is precious)

Thank you.

He LOOOOOOVES people and especially children. Unfortunately, no one ever taught him that jumping is not cute and I've watched all 55 pounds of him tackle quite a few kids at the park. I'm working on stopping that.

He's also good with other dogs off-leash, but barks at dogs when I'm walking him on a leash (I suspect it's a guarding thing). I need to find some training classes to figure out how to stop that.
