Hi Ya'll! My name is Kara. I have 3 dogs- Buzz, a Rottweiler and Doberman mix, Shyla a Beagle and Jack Russell mix, and Cowboy, a full-blooded registered Australian Cattle Dog( Blue Heeler). I love my dogs they are like my best friends. Buzz is 6 years old, Shyla is 2 years old, and Cowboy is around 6 months old.

I just found Cowboy this summer after we moved to our house in the country. He was born with a deformity. My parents didn't want him. Then they found the owner and they came and took him away and a hour later they brought him back and said we could have him. Ever since then we have been best buds. Cowboy likes to chase everything He chases my goat, my other dogs Buzz and Shyla, and once he was chasing my horses, but now they chase him. I am going to train Cowboy to herd livestock. He is a Doll. I love all of my dogs. Thanks for reading about my dogs.

I have two dogs. Cody is a Golden Retriever and he is 9 years old. He is the best dog, he is always trying to get attention from people and he loves to be pet and played with. I know Cody's life is coming to an end and I don't want to lose him. He is one of my very first dogs. There will never be a dog that could replace him. Cody loves to play in the snow, he likes going sleigh riding with me. He loves to ride in the car no matter where we are going. Whenever we have to take him to the vet he always knows what is coming and he cooperates very well.

My other dog's name is Sadie. She is a Great Dane. Sadie is one year old and she is the biggest scaredy cat you could ever meet. Sadie's nickname is "monster dog" because she is just so big. Monster dog is very affectionate towards the ones she loves like me. She sleeps in my bed with me every night and in the mornings while I am waiting for the bus to come she stands by my side at the front door, and when I come home she is just hysterical. Monster dog loves to play and loves to go on walks. I try to take her on walks whenever I can. Sadie loves the snow but I think she will like it a lot more now that she is older and more hyper. No dog could replace Sadie. I just love her to much. Well I gotta B U C O N E Love ya and the animals!!

I have only one dog, but she seems like five. My dog is very hyper, her favorite toy is one that I thought would never be. It not worth 2.00$ Its not worth 5.00$ to her. To her it seems priceless. She's had it forever. This toy is an empty pop bottle. Its loud but she is my dog and I got used to it. My dogs name is Jazzola. She is only 2 years old. I love her more than my own best friends. To me Jazz is like someone to calm me down at night or listen to my problems. She can not fix them, but she can make me happy. She is my companion. The one that I love, the one that I can trust, the one that I can believe in when I am sad. She's like my hero that came into my lonely world. Although she big and more on the stuck-up side she is like my baby. I will always be her mom!

My dog is a Blue Heeler and is almost 4 months. He is silver, blue, brown, black, and white. He loves playing Frisbee and playing with squeaky toys.

Story dog!Clowie, Age 13

My dog is 13 years old, just like me, and he is very important to me and my whole family. We used to play all the time, but he has grown old and weak now, and has stopped doing the stuff we used to do. But we still play about once a day, normally I chase him around. I am scared to lose him because I won't know what to do without a dog. But these stories are supposed to be happy, and it is because I still have my beloved dog I'm just scared to lose him that's all. You know, you should always look on the finer side of life because even when you are down there will always be your loyal friend beside you.

My dog, Barney, is twelve years old. My dad and my mom have had him since before I was born. He's a Golden Retriever. What's so special about him is that he does LOTS of tricks, he's lovable, he doesn't bite, he protects me, and when you tell him to go to his dog room, he goes!! Golden Retrievers are fun to play with when your bored. On Christmas we put up his stocking, he usually gets treats and bones. Also we write a list to Santa for stuff that Barney needs, like a blanket, treats, food. I love to take care of him. Barney is kind of like my big brother because I've had him ALL my life, and he's a healthy dog.

My dog's name is Ginger. I love her so much. She loves to cuddle up by the heat when it's cold out. She is the best dog in the world! She is a Rat Terrier. Her birthday is Oct.18,1999. She likes to play, sleep in our beds and lay on our laps. Her face is all brown with a white stripe down the middle. She has a black spot on her back and her tail looks like she stuck it in black paint. One of her favorite things to do is take our toys, underwear, and anything that she can reach. She thinks it is a game when we chase her to get our stuff back, she runs around the house so we can't get her. Even though she is bad, I still think she is the cutest dog and the best dog in the world.

Story dog!Emily, Age 13

I have four dogs. They are all pretty smart. Tho oldest of them is Coca Cola (C.C. for short). She was born July 19,1995. She is a Rat Terrier. Rat Terriers are commonly called Feists. We named her C.C. because she is brindle colored. Her back is the color of coke and her head and legs are a fizz color! She likes to tree squirrels. We have taken her hunting before and we caught 3 squirrels. She also knows to sit, stay, come, lie down, play dead, shake, and walk on her hind legs for about 5 feet. Every time you say "go get 'em" or "sick 'em' she will run out to the woods and start hunting the squirrels. When she finds one she tries to climb the tree and barks. I really should have named her Houdini because I can't keep her in any pen. Once, we locked her crate for the night with a real lock and the next day the lock was undone and the gate was open! She will climb out of a tall pen also.

Snoopy is the second oldest. He is also a Rat terrier. I named him Snoopy after the Peanuts cartoon character, Snoopy. He sort of looks like him and behaves like him. He was born July 10, 1996. He is black and white with tan eyebrows. He also trees squirrels but has not been hunting yet. The only time he barks is when strangers come up. Then he yap yaps and nips at their heels! It's really funny to watch! He knows all the things C.C. knows and also does agility. I built my own agility course and trained him. I haven't been able to enter him in a contest though. He is more cuddly than C.C. He and C.C. will sit on the porch swing together and make it swing back and forth.

The third oldest is Jo Dee. She is an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie/Red Heeler mix. She is red merle which is red with black marble coloring. She also has red colored eyes which is weird. She was born November 28, 1999 in Oklahoma. A friend gave her to me as a gift. Though it's unusual, she trees squirrels too! I am working on teaching her how to herd our 23 horses! She knows sit , stay, come, give me five, give me ten, stand on your hind legs, jump up, look behind you, and catches food when you throw it to her. She is a really cool dog.

The fourth youngest is Mickey. He is still a puppy. He is a Rat terrier. C.C. is his mom and Snoopy is his dad. He is a chocolate and white. It's kind of a tan but with a little brown to it. His eyes are blue in the middle with gold around the edges. They are really neat looking! He was born April 12, 2000. He has already learned sit, stay, come, down, roll over, and stand up. He is getting the hang of treeing squirrels!

All of my dogs get along and love me. I love them and would hate to lose one! No stranger would get near me. They are very protective of me. I love them so much!!!

Five years ago, my family, my uncle and his friend went to the zoo on 'Find Your Best Friend' day. The Humane Society had brought lots of abandoned dogs, cats, and other animals to the zoo for people to adopt. We looked for a long time at all the dogs, but none of them seemed right. When we were just about to leave, we saw an employee walking with a dog on a leash. The first time I saw the dog I said, "That's the ugliest thing I've ever seen!" He was an Australian Shepherd, and he's lots of different colors. He has a black face with yellow eyebrows, brown legs, black and white spots, and a huge black spot on his back. Buddy is his name. We decided to adopt him. Now he is 6 years old. He has seizures all the time, and he's on medication to help him. The medication makes him really hungry, so he tries to get into cupboards and stuff ALL the time. He's eaten all the garbage and dog food a few times. Now we have baby locks on our cabinets and special garbage can lids for all our garbage cans. I hope that Buddy will be around for a long time, even though he is pretty weird. :)

My dog's name is Freckles. She is a mixed breed. We think she is some type of hound because she likes to sniff out the squirrels and the family of deer that live in out back yard. She likes Christmas Tree Farms (that's where we got her) and chasing chickens when no one looks, she cuddles with the cat. She is a well-behaved medium sized dog. She is a tri-color with a white underbelly and black on her back, a white face with black eyes and ears. She has freckles along her nose, neck, and underbelly.

My dog, Rosie, is the best and also the smartest dog in the world! She learned how to come when he was just 2 weeks old! Now he knows all tricks like sit, lay, go, stay, bow lots and lots!, speak, say please, beg, give a high five, play dead, roll over, and fetch. But that is not it! When anyone in my family says "go" or "car" or Take out the dog Stephanie ", I'll think I will go and...", she knows that if he is standing at the front door then he will get taken out!! He hates it when I hug her, but she forgives me quickly. If she ever made me angry (which is hardly ever) I would forgive her quickly. I know that Rosie is the Greatest dog that I will ever have! She is the best! I have the best one year old dog in the world , if you know that!

I love my dog because she loves me more than anything else in the world. She does almost everything I want without being told, but I train her anyway. Everybody has to comment on how beautiful she is. She is tri-colored with long hair. She follows me everywhere I go and sleeps on my bed every night. Whenever people she doesn't know really, really well come she barks her head off and follows them around but won't let them touch her. She was born December 28, 1999. I got her February 27, 2000 from a couple that wanted really bad to get rid of their puppies. They took three over stuffed in a carrier and she came out first so I chose her. She was also the prettiest, being perfectly symmetrical. She really loves my cat, Tammy, who was born Easter, 1997. They play games with each other like chase and lick. Penny is definitely MY dog.

My family has a Great Dane puppy named Dazzle.  She is only 6 months old but already 70 pounds.  She is going to get probably as big as 120 pounds.  Her favorite person is my dad, but she gets really excited when me and my brother come home from school.  My mom and I are going to take her to training class starting soon.  Hopefully she will learn not to jump up on us when we come home!  She is going to knock us over one of these times if she gets bigger.  We went all the way to Alberta Canada, 3000 miles round trip to get her from a friend.  She is Merle which is gray with black spots and some white too.  I am going to write a paper about her at school.  We are really happy to have our new family member.

It hasn't slowed her down a bit! I was really scared when she was hit because we thought she was going to die or that we would have to put her to sleep. This one vet scared us really bad because she thought that Shania's diaphragm was torn! Thanks Dr. Paula for saving my Shiney Hiney! (That's Shania's nickname!)

My dog, Trixie, is almost two years old. When we got him, she was uncontrollable and untrainable. We had almost given up hope on her, when we found something she was wonderful at. She was a natural herder. We got two sheep and chickens, and she herds them into the fence when they get out. She rounds them up into the barn at the command "Get 'em". I have now taught her to feed them. I guess her training wasn't working because it wasn't fun for her. Well now she knows fifteen tricks, from "get 'em" to "Bring me the shears"!

C.B. is short for Charlie Brown because my dog is golden brown. He is more of a "reflective" kind of dog rather than an active one. I can compare him to Winnie the Pooh not because my pup is of little brain, but because he reflects so much that I can see how gentle he is and that he has such a positive disposition. I love C.B.!

I love my dog because she is loving and sweet. My dog is cool. My dog is kind of weird though because she likes drinking the water and jumping in the pond, but she doesn't like taking a bath. Blackie my dog is pretty old, but I don't know how old. She has white on her chest. She will jump up and get her food, but I bet every dog can do that. She won't do any tricks. I try to teach her to play fetch, but she won't do it and I gave her treats. Even though she can't do any of that, she still can listen and I still love my sweet dog, Blackie.

My dogs are very special. I love my dogs more than anything in the world. Once my Pit Bull saved my life when we were hiking, he pulled me out of a waterhole. He jumped in after me and I held onto his tail (gently) as he helped me out. My dog Bucky was my Grandma's dog. She passed away last month and I have now adopted him. He is wonderful! My Grandma got him from our neighbor when he was only five days old because his Mother would not feed him so we are the only family he has ever known. He is also a miracle because he had par when he was a baby and my Grandma spent day and night taking care of him with our vet's help. I think my dogs are a gift from God and that is why I love them and treasure them so much!!

My dog, Missy, is three years old. She's a chubby, sweet dog. In two weeks there's a dog Olympics and she's entering it and every day I take her out at 7:30 sharp. Then we go to the park and go around obstacles and we go up and down hills. After, my friend comes and sees me. She helps me train for the dog Olympics and that's my dog's story. She is my best friend.

I have the most wonderful black and white smooth-coated Jack on the face of the planet. She adores children except in the following instances: 1) when someone bikes by. 2) when a child is swinging in a swing. 3) when someone is swimming. In each instance she 'freaks-out'. She begins running about and barking, and doesn't seem to be very happy in the least. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

Lucky my female black and blue merle border collie knows over fifty tricks, which includes basketball, baseball, soccer, football, and doing math problems!

My dog, Valley, is very calm and sweet. She is a Cocker Spaniel. She is obsessed with food and knows exactly where we hide her treats and chews. Sometimes she licks the cabinet door for hours. She can be very cluttered with her toys because she leaves them everywhere. When I pick them all up and put them in her crate and shut the door without locking it, she will open the door with her claws She is very well-behaved but she is terrified of bigger dogs unless she has known them as a puppy. Now we have put a deposit on a four week old Golden Retriever. We have already named her Casey and she will come and live with us in three weeks. She is extremely cute and is not shy to show her sweet little personalities. They both love getting there tummies rubbed.

I live in Louisiana with my dad and sisters, but we spend each summer with my mom and stepdad in Pennsylvania. They have four Collies (the big ones) and I love them all! My favorite thing to do with Rascal (dad) is wrestle. He turns his head when you call him the "Great Googly-Moogly". He loves to play tug with his rope toy and will fetch it for hours. Weebles (son) is a snuggler. He is the biggest, but he doesn't know it. Daisy Mae (daughter) talks all the time even when we are trying to watch TV. She loves to bring in sticks and rocks...my mom doesn't like that.

Pippie (mom) is the most spoiled of all. She gets to go into parts of the house that are off limits to the rest of them. She gets mad if any of the others disturb her while she is laying down with my stepdad (she thinks he belongs only to her). She loves pizza and anything else with tomato sauce. She puts on quite a dramatic act if you don't share your pizza with her. She often steals things off the counter and has taught Weebles to do the same.

Weebles and Daisy are only eight months old. There were eight puppies all together, but my mom said the other six all got really good homes. Mom says we need a bigger house. It gets very crowded in the summer with four big dogs and four big kids...I am the youngest. My stepdad says that we all cost too much, but he spoils us anyway. I love my summers with my mom and stepdad and the four mischievous collies from the "Long-nose pack".

My dog's name is Nova. I now that she is the best dog in the world to me. She also dose not let a single person go near me if I do not know them or if she dose not know them. She went after a few dogs because they went after me. She also comes to bed with me at night. She might be one of the most stubborn dogs because she is so hyper. But other than that she is the best dog in the world.

My puppy, Pumpkin, loves to play with me. She also loves to give me kisses. She is so tiny that she always wins when we play hide and seek. I love my puppy. She is the best.

I got Prince when I was three. He is a white and tan Papillon. He was very sick when we first got him. He had to stay at the vet's for about a week. Now Prince is doing fine. Prince likes to smile and cuddle a lot. I love him.

Chris, sweeter then any puppy, Chris though we are apart and live in different places, I will always love you. You are my best friend forever. I love you Chris! I'll love you and I dream of you every night.

I love Wuzzy because he makes such funny noises in the morning. When he was a tiny puppy, I held him and sang him a lullaby and he fell asleep. I like to take walks with Wuzzy because I like to give him exercise. I think Wuzzy is really special because he was the runt of the litter and he stood out a lot, because he was left out at night so he wasn't warm, and because he was the only blonde dog in the litter. Wuzzy has two friends named Taz and Riley - they're both Dachshunds. Wuzzy is 14 years old in dog years. When he's excited he wiggles his whole bottom instead of just his tail. He looks like he's smiling and is so excited he drools on the carpet!

Hello. Hello. I have two dogs and one cat. My first dog is very old, he's small and he sleeps a lot. His name is Tobby. My other dog is Buddy. He is 3 years old. So he's the youngest. Buddy is a mix and so is Tobby. Buddy is a Golden Retriever and a Blue Heeler. He is mostly Blue Heeler. And Blue Heeler need a lot of attention. Blue Heeler are Australian cattle dogs, meaning they herd cattle.

But there are things about them, like they have high energy. They love to run. They shed so you have to groom them a lot. And sometimes they will get out of control. They love to chew. And most important is make sure they don't hurt children. Since they herd they have a tendency to bite the ankles. And if there are children in the area and are running they might go after them and bite their ankles. And they only have three problems that I have to worry about - and that's a lot of stuff to keep your eye on. Oh, they are hard to train. They like to do tricks and play family activities. Well that's about it! Thanks for reading!

Hello out there! My dog, Ezri is seven months old and the best thing I ever did was to make sure she is trained properly! Obedience school is heaps of fun (she's in beginners which is the second level). We have "competitions" and at the end of beginners there is a competitions with ribbons for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. She's a great dog and our favorite game is "tug-tug" with a rope. She's very smart and loves company! One day I hope she will be a therapy dog, she also will learn agility or flyball. Love ya Ezri!

Hi all! I have the best two year old dog in the world (in my opinion). Fwaggles Solitary Man ADC AGC or (Solo) as we call him, is one good dog! The ADC and AGC are letters added after his name, to show that he has completed levels of agility. He was born February 11 of 1998 and started agility right after he finished his first set of puppy classes and that was when he was 6 months old. Solo, and me are a great team. We have been on the show" Pet Squad" doing agility we have been in various demos, and I have even written an article in the April 2000 " Dogs in Canada" magazine. It's under the Toy Manchester Terrier article.

Solo is a Toy Manchester Terrier. Were also on a flyball team, but I'm not sure if I should go on with flyball cause its kind of boring. Solo also has quite a show record. His brother went to Westminster and won out of all the other Toy Mans in North America. Sadly, Solo isn't a show dog because one of his testicles didn't go down but he is one GREAT athlete. The only dog sport he isn't very good at is obedience (not just because his owner doesn't like it...). Anyway, this article is dedicated to you, Solo.

I love my dog because he is a Beagle and his ears are really droopy and when I throw him up in the air his ears look like Dumbo.

My dog, Toga, just turned five a few months ago. She is the sweetest puppy in the world. We always get compliments on how "well behaved" and "how pretty" she is. My dog is afraid of loud sounds, but will make sure we're safe, too. She loves to go on walks at the beach. And Toga loves my feet, she will lick them after I sit down, she will just run up to my feet and slobber all over them! She also likes cheese, apples and salmon! I love my Toga-girl!

My dog Diamond is part Lab/Pit Bull mixed. Diamond is a girl. She is 28 years old in dog years, 4 years old in people years. She knows 7 tricks - sit, shake hands, kiss, roll over, jump, play dead. Diamond got hit by a car once, and ran into a car once and she's still living. Diamond has several cousins, they are Cory and Onyx who are brother and sister Labs, Caesar who is part Boxer, Morgan who is a Schnauzer/Poodle mix or a Schnoodle, and Duchess who is big. Diamond's birthday is September 28th. We have a meatball party for her every year. We made her a birthday scarf and my friends all signed it. Diamond has to be on a leash because she likes to run and run and run, that's how she got in so much trouble with cars before.

Do you know how old my dog is? Well she is 11 years old! And she looks so young!

My dog, Jazz, is the best and also the smartest dog in the world! He learned how to come when he was just nine weeks old! Now he knows many tricks like sit, lie down, stay, speak, say please, beg, give a high five, play dead, roll over, and fetch. But that is not it! When anyone in my family says "go" or "car" or "I'll think I will go and..." he knows that if he is standing at the front door then he will get a ride in the car! He hates it when I bathe him, but he forgives me quickly. If he ever made me angry (which is hardly ever) I would forgive him quickly. I know that Jazz is the best dog that I will ever have! He is the best!
