So sorry for your loss. She was such a beautiful girl!

We had to say goodbye to Alice today. Her kidney was failing, and she just couldn't bounce back. We're going to miss her so much. We brought her home at 8 weeks, and had her 12 1/2 yrs. We were blessed with such a wonderful dog. She loved her car rides!

Tara Mae (left) is a sweet terrier/ dachshund mix, 3 years old. We had her brought up from a Tennessee rescue about 8 months ago. She has learned to love the snow!
Lex (right) is a 9 year old Dachshund we adopted from a local shelter here in NH. We call him Mr Bossypants because he thinks he's in charge of the neighborhood. He had a hard time being friendly and trusting in the beginning, but has adjusted well in the 5 years we've had him. emoticon

I have two dogs, Colby and Jack. They are lab/hound mixes that my daughter rescued when I didn't even know I wanted a dog, and they are now my babies! Colby looks like a tall black lab, and Jack looks like a brown Weimaraner. Jack is a parvo survivor, so he is a real tough puppy, but very cuddly. They both passed 60 pounds this week, at 7 months old, so I am very proud of their progress. Also, since I now walk them separately to train them, I win every step challenge I am invited to. :)

I don't have pictures of all my dogs (I know, for shame). I don't use a smart phone or have a digital camera, so that's why. Here's the info on the herd:

Louie: 11 yr. old male boxer mix. Adopted from rescue when he was a puppy (foster fail).
Molly: 12 yr old female beagle. Adopted from rescue when she was 9.
Peaches: 11 yr old female beagle. Adopted from rescue when she was 8. (Peaches has a large fan club of kids in my neighborhood. They must stop and pet her when I'm walking her).
Gracie: 9 yr old female beagle. Adopted from shelter when she was 8.
Monkey: 4 yr old female beagle. Adopted from shelter when she was 3 (foster fail).

Hi there. My name is Kristina, just recently joined. The yellow fluffy dog is Daisy. She's a 6 year old terrier mix we adopted from our local shelter. We have had her for 5 years. We were told that she was abandoned in a box with her puppies on the side of the road. All the puppies were adopted. She's a very sweet dog that loves her naps and belly rubs. Bean is the chihuahua mix. He's five years old and we've had him since he was a puppy. Our little bruiser thinks he's a big dog. He likes to play fetch, rut around in his blankets and be told how handsome he is. And finally Buck aka Buckasaurus Rex. He's the puppy in the pic but no longer a puppy. He turned 1year old last month. We adopted him from the shelter when a puppy. I'm not really sure what breed he is. We were told by different shelter employees that he was part shepard, lab , pit bull. He was found with a brother and sister. at that time his brother had been adopted the day before. Buck makes us laugh so much. He drools, farts and is so clumsy but we love the big goofball.

This is Chloe. We adopted her in 2012 and she was about 1 year old when we brought her home. Shortly after arriving home she had her first heat and then we got her spayed. We were helping a local dog shelter move and saw her in a kennel and thought we needed to take her home. We thought that maybe she would work out to be my husband's dog - and she has. He goes to bed earlier than I and she will go to bed with him. When she wants out, she will either wake him up or scratch at the door to come out and then go sleep with the other dogs. I call her a Mini-Lab as looks just like a Labrador Retriever but she has the short legs of a dachshund - or some other small dog. One day I hope to get a DNA test on her to find out what she is made of.

This is Charlie. We adopted him in 2011 at the age of 2. We had recently lost a 14 year old black and tan dachshund named Elmo and I wanted to get my husband a dog - as our 2 remaining dogs were more my dogs. After 2 weeks at home, I was laid off my job and home all day - Charlie became my dog and now barks and growls at my husband. We don't know why. He will jump in my husband's lap if I am not around but when I am there, he will have nothing to do with him,. We don't know anything about his first 2 years. He was in a foster home when we adopted him and with a puppy mill rescue group for most of his life before then. I think he was probably born into a puppy mill and then was not purchased and turned over to the rescue group.

This is Cocoa. I adopted her in 2007 when she was 4 years old and straight out of a puppy mill. She was so excited when she arrived at my house and saw 2 others of her own breed! People, she wasn't too crazy about. She became my shadow but was leery of my husband. It took a few years before she started approaching him and asking him for attention. Now they are good friends, especially when he gives her forbidden table foods. She loves to knock over trash cans to look for food garbage and knows how to get on the kitchen table to find food items we have left there without thinking. She is also an escape artist - having figured out how to undo the emergency window latches in our camper and leap 8 ft to the ground while we were out. Since then, we try not to leave her in the camper - even though the other dogs are there - as she leaves us presents on the dining table.

This is Charlie about 6 months after I first adopted him and although still a bit scared he had put on weight and his fur had grown back. I got him when he was about 6 months old, He had been beaten, starved, abused and abandoned. He was found abandoned tied to a fence after a traveller community left the area. Charlie had a broken rib, damage to his pelvis, he was starved to the point you could see just about every bone, he had fleas, mange and kennel cough.

I actually adopted him to have him PTS as I thought that would be the kindest thing/ But when I spoke to my vet he decided to help him FOC and 3 days on antibiotics, and lots of flea and mange treatment later, he was well enough to come home.

It took me years to get him to a point where he is not afraid of men and I can raise my voice to my son, without Charlie stress weeing.

Now he spends his days sleeping on the sofa, playing with his best mate, Ozzy the cat and loves nothing more than playing fetch and going swimming

We adopted Mitzy a few months after loosing our 17 year old plab, Sasha. We were searching for a dog out of the puppy stage. She was 4 months old, but miss categorized with the 1-2 year old dogs. After meeting several young adults that all reacted badly toward our current dog, I decided to meet her. They clicked right away. I'm sure that Sasha had a paw in bringing Mitzy to me, she makes me smile every day.

This is Leah my dog I adopted with my mom on October 21st, 2013. Ever since that day I have been nothing but smiles and giggles with her. She knows how to make me laugh and smile with her constant goofiness and I can't stop smiling at the fact that I have her in my life. What you see around her waist is an ace bandage. She has a wound that she scratched too much and got infected and is healing but is on the mend but I put it on her to protect the wound from her scratching. That is why you see brown around her waist. She was in a shelter when I got her and before that I found out some things that made me angry at the former owner. He didn't treat her well. She was basically abused and neglected. I treat her with respect and dignity.

This was photo was taken last weekend as part of a fundraiser for the animal charity I'm involved with.

From the left: Louisa, Ginger and Maddy.

We are Maddy's third family. He is a feisty Pomeranian who is afraid of things he shouldn't be and totally fearless around things he should be wary of. He once chased a moose out into a lake. Maddy's hobbies include barking, going for walks, playing with toys and being a total cutie. We adopted him seven years ago when he was two years old.

We are also Louisa's third family. She is a delightful mix of yellow Lab and ?. She loves everybody and lets Maddy boss her around. LouLou is a diabetic but is doing really well with her insulin injections. Louisa's hobbies include begging for treats, walking, wagging her tail, playing with sticks, swimming and rolling in stinky things! We adopted her four years ago on our 10th wedding anniversary.

And last but not least there is Ginger. Her previous owners dropped her off to our vet's clinic to have her put down. Luckily for all of us, our vet stepped in and asked if we would foster her. Poor Ginger had been kept in a basement for years and at age six had never stepped on grass before. She has come a long way and will not be going anywhere.....yes, we are failed foster parents! Ginger's hobbies include playing with sneaky toys, going for walks, and cuddling.

My husband and I simply adore our furbabies and we kind of think the feelings are mutual!
