1. go to www.tinypic.com
2. Click browse and click on the pic you want
3. click upload now
4. I think it gives you 3 or 4 options but the 2nd one says IMG code for forums and message boards... just click copy and then paste it where ever you want it!

Just figured I would let everyone know!

I like small breeds because I can pick them up. But we have a small mut (her Mom was a poodle and she dated a Chihuahua that worked for taco bell...LOL) we rescued her. She has been the quickest to learn and the calmest. Our daughter purchased a tea cup Chihuahua which turned out not to be a tea cup. He ended up being our responsibility and he has managed over time to "P" every where in this house. We have a lab outside and she was also a rescue, she to was quick to learn. I really don't have a breed that I prefer but I have grown to love female dogs over the males. Both the females we have were already up in age and they housebroke quickly and picked up on tricks we taught them in a day. The Chihuahua was 8 weeks old when we got him 2 years ago and he still hasn't learned the commands but he is excellent at "P"ing in the house!

Here are pictures of Misty (black female poochi!) and the "P" master Lil Fella.

I have a greyhound named Eddie. He was smart enough to just not run the first time they tried to race him, so he was adopted out right away at the ripe old age of one and and a half years old. I love my Eddie. He's such a character and has yet to really damage anything in the house. He loves to go camping and likes long walks on the beach. He also likes to talk to you when you try to nap during the day and he likes to scold me if I come home too late from the bars on the weekends. I just can't say enough about my grey.

i have a shiba inu who i love to death. she is a little brat though!my absolute favorite breed in the world would be a pit bull. i have met so many and they are wonderful. ive done lots of research on them instead of listening to what the media tells me and found out for myself soo many interesting facts and stories on them. i cant wait to get a staffordshire bull terrier. he will be spoiled rotten

I lean towards herding dog mutts/mixes (how did this beagle-basset bay his way into my house?). For me, I just prefer mutts, as I like to adopt dogs and figure that mutts might have more trouble getting adopted. Also, no one's mutt looks like yours! My first adoption was a breed, English Springer, a lovely dog, who turned out to have an inbred neurological flaw- "spaniel rage"- and he had to be put down before he tried to kill me.
I had a border collie/terrier mutt growing up, and I think got that type/coloring as an imprint. I also like the energy and intelligence of the BC mixes, although I do adopt older (sometimes much older) dogs.
Each dog I get attached to expands my idea of what "type" a dog should be. Sort of like boyfriends.

I don't know that I could pick a favorite since I've seen soooo many, but I own a Cogi/Malamute mix and she has to be on of the cutes and lovey dogs on the planet.

My favorite is my dog Chelsea, she is a Jack russel and McNab mix. The McNab is a herd dog that is bred out of Ukiah California since the 1800's and is still bred by the McNab family there. Chelsea has all the spirtit and spunk of the Jack but has the size of the McNab at 21 inch's tall, she thinks she is as big as a Jack and has no fear of anything, She will mouse or rat all day if I were to let here. She has no desire to herd and looks like a giant Jack Rulles Terrier. I have had many dogs large and small , Snoopy was a beagle/Chiahauha/Dachund mix and one of the smartest dogs that I have ever had, except for Chelsea. The most loyal and wise dogs ever was Ursa who I got at nine days old, she was a McNab/German shepherd mix that made it to almost 15 last march. The clown was O'shota a 125 pound Rottweiler/Golden/Irishwolfhound mix, there has never been such a sweet and innocent dog like O'shota, we let her go 15 months ago to spondylosis at 13 1/2. Right now I fing the Jack russel to be adorable and so extremely intelligent, but Chelsea is the best of two worlds.

Here are some pictures of Chelsea at the beach and in the driveway and one of Milly and Molly on our couch when we were dog sittling them. Milly is a pit mix and Molly is a McNab/Border collie mix but has the McNab coloration. Their owner is a 76 year old woman with emphysema and Alzheimers disease and the two dogs have become quite nerotic over the last 5 years that they have lived with her. If Anne should pass away, Milly and Molly are left to us in the will.

I'm a sucker for herding breeds. ....collies, aussies, shelties, B.C.,etc.
My favorite is the Aussie by far. They seem to have more of an off switch then a B.C. but a little more active then a Collie. Plus, I can never own another collie, as the one we had was the best dog in the world and no collie will live up to her EVER!
