    That's a great looking dog! I'm an animal lover and had lots of pets in the past. our last pet, a cocker spaniel, passed away Dec 21 08. This has been the first time we haven't had a dog or cat sleeping on the bed or watching me hit the bag in 24 years. We're taking on older family members into our house now and don't need creatures running under foot and walkers. Pets are awesome IF you are an animal lover. I imagine if you are NOT an animal lover they are an annoyance. I have lots of video footage during speed bag workouts picking up my dog or cats and mugging them at the camera. Particularly when a new one showed up.

    sorry to hear about your past pet loss and good luck with your new pup.

      Sorry about the loss of you dog, Kyle. Your new one is a great looking dog. Good luck with him. I always had Irish Setters. They were great dogs but needed lots of room to run, and could be very "high strung" if not properly trained. I haven't had a dog in over 12 years now.

      But a kitten stowed away on my engine one night last fall and survived a 10 mile journey, and a confimed cat-hater, now has a tiger cat, and has turned into a cat lover. Go figure.

          Great pix, Alan. (cat scan...). I'm sure your pets helped with your recovery.

            Nice pics.

            I've got a Terrier. His name is Bogart. Unfortunately I don't have any pics of him yet, but I'll post again when I get one.

              That is one cute puppy, Kyle!!! Soon to be a huge BEAST LOL! The last two awesome dogs in my life were our Shepard/Collie mix "Queenie" who died from lockjaw when I was 14 and my sister's Timber wolf/Shepherd mix "Jake" (She was a huge fan of "Raging Bull") who actually made it to 14! Great dogs both of them. Unfortunately where I live now has a no pets rule for renters but someday I foresee an Akita or another German Shepherd making their way into our lives

                Kyle, great pics. That dog is gonna be huge!
                Speedbag! Wow, cool animal pics but I also looked at the other ones. That must not have been a walk in the park. Good to know you are still bagging after all that!
                Metaldad, Biff, Jagganath, alright! All animal lovers! Me too.

                I have a 10 year old chocolate lab, Thalia. She is great. Also adopted a 3 year old black lab from the shelter this Xmas, Luna. 90 lbs. and loves to hug. Also had a black lab mix, Page, from 2000- 9.10.06 we found late night on the street in Hollywood. Best friend. Worst day of my life when she died.
                Also have had 3 crows. Crows are great. The first one, Salem, was a baby injured in the grass. Took her in and raised her like a dog! haha... on the floor....she got on with the dogs and thought Page was her mom. Very friendly and always playing jokes, trying to take remote controls, dog bones, coming behind dogs and biting their tails, dancing and cawing in front of the tv. She even would bounce a racquetball back and forth with me. Eventually learned to fly but we clipped her wings becuase she had a disease we thought other crows would attack her because of when she would fly away, (yes, she would return too). She slipped in the pool on a real windy day... another crap day.....
                Since then had two more, (Sadie and Poe), no longer with us.

                  Not to hijack the thread, but BT, where do you get crows??? Are they sold in pet stores, do people breed them, or did you just befriend a backyard crow?

                  I love labs, but never owned one. That's a great pic of your choc lab.

                    The first crow was an injured baby I saw in my neighbor's yard.
                    We had been bringing her in to a vet who was taking care of this wart stuff on her beak. When she passed, the vet had 2 other crows that were brought in at that time, so we adapted them from her.

                    It isn't really legal to own wild birds, but whatever. Ain't there a lot worse to worry about on this planet????

                    I have just spent all this time trying to put other pics up but I think the size is too large. Now I am frustrated and will try later.
                    Anyone know how to quickly reduce the quality of a picture? I use a Mac Book Pro with iPhoto. It's all new and upgraded. I forgot how to do this. I have used something in the past I forget the name of and don't have anymore since my upgrade.

                    Bif, yeah. labs are great... they just need excercise.... but they rule....

                      dogs, chickens, ducks, tortoises, bees, wife, kids

                      Right now I have 2 dogs, a 2-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback without a ridge that we rescued, and a fox terrier that i took to watch for "2 weeks" while a permanent home for it was found, that was in 1998. I also have 8 hens, 2 ducks, 2 tortoises, and about 50,000 bees. I have trouble keeping the names straight.
                      Oh, I also have an adult female human, and an 8 year old and a 5 year old.

                      I have to through the garage to get the food to feed the critters. The speed bag is in there. What used to take me less than 5 minutes now eats up at least 30 minutes a day.

                          Crows? COOL!! .........And sometimes..just sometimes, the crow allows them to come back to set the wrong things right" One of my favorite films and comic books. I used to own a Python named Zappa and had two igauanas, Kermit and Jima
