    Dogs have no sense of relative size. Big dogs can be chased away by little ones.

    The smallest pet in our house, no dog messes with and they give him a wide birth when he enters the room.

    I love rescues too!! He is a rescue of course so he's bigger on personality than looks. This was one of his younger moments, when he wouldnt stop drinking pool water so he sort of game himself a dye job on the beard n paws. 66112666-7442-42E7-8FBB-2A93F2207C21_1_201_a.jpeg

    My last rescue, put her down a year or two ago. I still miss her.

    It's so weird. It doesn't make a lot of survival sense. I wonder if its because the size variance is a relatively recent development in their evolution, and they all just assume that they're average sized wolves.

    Nice doggie. Amka was a late ‘30s Dutch guitar brand. Mainly electrified archtops and lapsteels. Folded in 1950, owner moved to the US. I strongly suspect my lapsteel is an Amka. Now you know.;)

    Somebody told me it's because little dogs are viewed as puppies by big dogs, so they get confused when the smaller ones don't act like puppies.

    He's brave to sleep below that bike! Hope it's anchored well. :eek:

    I had two German Shepherds at the same time, one was a longhair, we used to have "tumbleweeds" of dog hair everywhere and when I brushed them I used to say I just gained a cat....

    Agreed in any imaginable totality!

    Across any preferences, species, ... I'm a cat-guy anyway, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't like other animals (of course not - I'm actually a bit ashamed when one of my fellow feline-people feels the need to talk down other animals - it's about matching, not about being better or worse...). There are enough of those animals we love at our homes that everyone wanting one to share his life with should at least consider adopting one who - it's who, not that - already exists. Don't see the point of making more while there are more dogs (and other animals) than dogs in a loving home.

    However, I have no idea who this dog is, at who's place he lived, the only thing I know is my Dad must have known one of his/her humans in the late seventies. Found it while scanning old photographies. Looks cute, and, to my non-expert eyes, looks young, not fully grown up, but I may be wrong on this. No dog expert by any means...

    Due to health issues, it's impossible for me to keep up with another dog, as much as that pains me. My daughter has one, but it's definitely her dog. I really wanted another dog, so we now have four cats. That's my wife's doing. We've always had more cats than dogs---it seems better to have at least two cats at a time so they amuse each other. I realize that dogs should have a buddy as well; it's just me usually. I love the critters---always get them farm fresh, never paid for one. There are too many out there that need homes than to pay for an inbred puppy mill victim.

    My boys made it to 12 and 13, they were 3 years apart. It's been a few years but I can't have anymore doggies because my heart's still broken.
