I have a weimaraner pup, about 5 months old! He's a handfull, but loves to be around people, I've tried to break him from sleeping in the bed with my wife and me, but during the middle of the night, he ends up in there anyway, so now, I've just sort of let him crawl in bed with us when we are ready to sleep. He really is my best friend.

He is full blooded english bulldog. The picture does look a little funny and he is thin for a bulldog. He is real thick as far as muscles go, but he is SO active that he doesn't have an ounce of fat on him. He is 2 1/2, so I expect him to start slowing down in the next year or so and putting on some weight. He eats me out of house and home, but he runs around the yard playing keep away anytime somebody is outside near him.
He got out Saturday morning. We had a wreck out in front of our house where some fool centered a light pole and transformers started blowing everywhere. Romeo freaked out, went through the fence (which I thought was Romeo proof) and didn't stop running for about a mile. I went after him and everybody I saw was like "you looking for a bulldog? He went that way!" I don't know how far he ran but it was probably close to a mile and everybody said he never let up, just hauled a55.
Well.... The first day the wife came home with this cute lil brown puppy, said she could not make up her mind between it and the black one. Wanted to know if she could go back and get it too. Well being the loving caring husband that I am.... we had 2 puppies, Dozer (the borwn one) and Tank ( the brindle) They're 17 months old now. Not much good at nothin but sleep'n fart'n and beltch'n and normaly all at the same time. They can give any man I have ever know a run for his money on any of the 3. This here's Dozer and my wife the picture is a little old from back in June he was a just a year old.
This one is Tank sayn hi to my sister in law a couple of months ago.
They are both pretty close in weight the last time we were at the vet. Dozer was 180 and Tank was 183.
Sure the picture has to be on a web site someplace. Like on photobucket and not on your hard drive. you need to have the URL ( wwww.website/mypicture.jpg) then you when you get to the point in your post that you want your picture to appear at, just click on this button that is above the text box where you type your post.
That will insert the images tags like this just replace the URL with the URL of your picture. like this
You need to have the filename that will end with .jpg or .gif or perhaps even .png
Right mouse click on the picture, choose properties, then highlite the http://........ making sure get it all and paste that between the img tags like you did.. you did it right, just with an improper URL
I met ole Dodger when he first came into this life back in 1992. He was born one of 8 brothers and sisters of Angel and Yankee. I already had 4 beagle dogs and really didn’t want any of these once they were weaned but somehow this little guy looked like he would ‘run a rabbit to death’. Right after his eyes were open he began sniffing. He’d sniff his whole little world. While the rest of his brothers and sisters were eating, ole Dodger would sniff. He just looked like he would be a good dog given a chance.
Well, time rumbles on and he grew. At 8 weeks I would let him out of the kennel with his brothers and sisters to run and play, ole Dodger would keep his nose to the ground and howl up a storm. He had a low yelp as opposed to a high pitch yap. Time rumbles on some more and I decided to let Dodger go after all his siblings were gone. Well, you might as well struck me with a pickaxe because once I made that decision everyone except me knew ole Dodger wasn’t going anywhere. So, he joined the team with Angel, Yankee, Marlin and Brew and won his official name Dodger. (Can you see a pattern here with my dog names?)
Anyway, I started letting him run with the pack at about age 14 months. Before that I would take him out and show him the ropes. When his first solo bunny ran out in front of him, he was off like a shot. He chased that rabbit for a few yards and then stopped. That short chase was a start to a long and illustrious career as a “professional bunny chaser”. Dodger’s first full hunting year, he took over the leader of the pack job from his father Yankee Boy. He had come of age. He remained the leader of the pack until October 17, 2004, When he joined Angel, Yankee, Marlin and Brew at that great hedgerow in the sky.
Three years ago, when I started hunting rabbits again, I bought Little Boy. He was the first “outsider” I had ever had. Most of my dogs were sired by one of my dogs but Little Boy was bought from a local dog merchant. He was already a year old when I purchased him. Little Boy was already “bunny broke” or so the merchant said so I put him in with Dodger. At first, I thought there was going to be a little conflict but it was just a few minutes of “WHO’S THE BOSS AROUND HERE” and Ole Dodger won out. You know for a dog that didn’t weigh more than 19 pounds, he must have had an 18 pound heart. He showed Little Boy what was what right off the bat. After that first meeting they became good hunting companions. When one would loose the scent, the other would pick it up. They would share their food and water but NEVER their women.
I don’t think there is ever going to be another Dodger. For a 19 pound dog with an 18 pound heart he was the tops. He never won a field trial but he was the best dog around. He would chase a rabbit until the rabbit got winded and stopped. He was slow as molasses on a cold winter day but he would stay with that rabbit until the rabbit stopped, turned around to him and said, “hey, are you following me?”… I was and am proud of the job my rabbit dogs have done but I’m especially proud of ole Dodger. He sure will be missed.
I just made a surprizing discovery, I never made a post in this thread, being the Mod here maybe I should.
Tony is my Brittany bird dog. He was 4 years old Sept. 1 2004, and he loves his bird hunting. This past season he accounted for about 40 pheasant without a loss and about 15 Chukers. For some reason no Huns or Quail were taken over him. But that was the shooters fault.
I state the season results to show he is one of the best bird dogs I have ever owned. I got him as a 6 week old pup and trained him myself. He has a 5x10 foot kennel with dog house and a sleeping platform to get him off the concrete floor. He stays in there during the day, and a Super Size Vari-Kennel in the house he sleeps in. He has a the large size Vari-Kennel in my SUV that he travals in. I find the Vari-Kennels are a good safe place for him to sleep and travel. I might add he was taught to use both as a pup.
I try to run him everyday if possible, but there are just some days I can't do it. He is a very happy dog and has child like attitude. You can really see it at times hunting. It is best said he is like a child skipping along with grandpa going to the candy store.

"Find the bird, Tony." Your birddog is only as good a buddy as you make it. Make it your buddy everyday, take it for a run. Watching a good birddog work, is like watching poetry in motion.

My dog's name is Shiloh. He is almost 3,and a Yellow Lab-German Sheppard mix. He has a black coat(Odd,eh?),and a white spot on his chest.He is faithful and can do alot of tricks.His most notable are:
Log:I have been geting him to help me carry up wood for the stove!
Sit,Stay,Come,Lay Down (Working on it!)Speak,Up,Down,and a few others.He is a nice dog and I love him very much!He weighs arond 70 pounds,but with his winter coat and the weight he gains in the winter from less activity he can get up to 80.I will get a picture of him soon!
I have a black lab mixed with chesapeke bay. Her name is Agnes, and she is a biggin for a lab. She weighs 105 pounds. I figured i would get like a 75 pound lab because the mom weighed about 65 and the dad weighed about 80. I don't feed her any table scraps, but I think my stepmom slips her some and acts like she accidently dropped some food. She is stubborn. If you take her to swim in the lake she won't come back to easily.
I've got to get a job this summer to afford my Browning Stainless Stalker 30/06 left hand with boss. With leupold 3-9x50 VX II scope.
