My husband was at the kitchen sink this morning...and guess who came to the window?? Our Saint Bernard, Charlie!
Can you guess what he wanted??? (with his stainless steel chow bowl!)

Charlie the chow hound! He loves his bowl, and will often carry it around the yard after he's eaten everything up! He will also take it inside his dog house. He is a nut! This was taken one evening after their dinner in January or so. The boys can't play together anymore after the February Fight. The boy hound dog started the BIG FIGHT, but Charlie won. Both boys are okay now. They just can't intermingle unattended.

This is the first time he's brought it to the kitchen window. He usually eats in the evening, but I guess he was hungry early on this day!

John picks up the empty bowls, but last night, Charlie must have ditched his bowl in his dog house, and John just didn't think about bringing it in!

Charlie always waits at the kitchen window when I'm preparing chow. I like to bang on the metal with my wooden spoon just to get him to drooling! He can see straight in. If the window's open, I can reach out and pet the top of his noggin!

I love that dog!

What a great picture, he seems to be Mr. Personality and has the size to insert himself as the center of attention.

That lil' ol' hound dog started the fight? My goodness, what a silly thing to do!

That look on his face is so funny! It's like he's thinking, "Come on, man! Where's the food?" He's so pretty! I missed the story about the 2 dogs fighting though. I can't imagine that would be an easy fight to break up.

We couldn't break it up. Blue was 80lbs at the time, Charlie was 180lbs. With such power, we just couldn't hold them back. Both boys were determined to be the last man standing. There were 4 rounds within minutes, and they quit cuz they wore themselves out. One time Blue ran into the BIG doghouse to get away from Charlie, but Charlie ran in after him and attacked him against the back wall. It was really awful. Of course we did everything wrong. We were hollering and shouting, and the Dog Whisperer says that is ALL WRONG. John even pepper sprayed them, and although that broke up round two, the pain of it might have agitated them even more cuz they went back for two more rounds!

Artlady, your dawgs are adorable!!!!!!! I have one like that too, it's the comedian & chowhounds that always carry their bowls around. I have to give her a plastic bowl so she can pick it up. :D........except for the water bowl, she purposely empties those as soon as I fill them and then the dogs have no water:teehee: so I switched to ceramic..........however.........your adorable guy looks like he could pick ANY bowl he wanted up off the floor.

:hug:

Oh you know how much I love Shih Tzu's! You are so lucky to have had so many Shih Tzu's in your life! And they are lucky to have had YOU in theirs!

This photo of your baby is sooo darn cute!

Yes, Charlie's bowl is stainless steel, not exactly lightweight! He can pick up any darn thing he sets his mind to! TeeHee!

Omigosh that made my day! Arielluria, your little one is is hysterical too!

Ah yes, the case of the same sex fighting. You just never know, dogs can live together for years and then one day the big fight and they can never be left alone to their own devices. Kudos to you for keeping the peace, it isn't easy.

My boy Cyrus used to carry his dog bed around like that...big ol' goofball thought it was a stuffy toy! Come to think of it, Cyrus was put up for adoption because of same sex aggression. Two male Rotts fighting, EEEEK! Keeping them apart was too much for his former owners and he was the newer dog so he had to go.

Right into my arms. Gee whiz I miss him.

I love all these dawgs. My two little girls (rat terriers) fight, and sometime my female kitty joins in. Can't imagine my life without pets though.

The Lord did not bless us with children as I would have liked, however, in hindsight, as much as I like children........ I believe I would have chosen my Shih Tzus. :teehee:

You are so sweet!

But I'm not ready yet. I just can't imagine loving another dog...not like I loved him anyway.

I know the day will come though. Cyrus will whisper in my ear. :)

:hug: I totally understand. Some people just need a little more time before getting another. I too wrestle with feelings of guilt if I 'replace' a dog with another too soon, but I personally prefer to give my heart and home to rescuing another asap then mourning the loss of one which won't bring them back.
:muah:

The urge to adopt was a general one, not just for you ;)

Well, I DID go to Petfinder and I did see a beautiful Australian Shepherd who seemed to touch my heart.

Which is really weird because Rottweilers are "my breed". Although I love ALL dogs (and cats!) I ony ever wanted to own a Rottie.

The boy are gorgeous. We've had dogs with their share of antics, but with big dogs in the house we have raised feeding stations so nobody can carry bowls around with them or empty water bowls by dumping them....

As for losing a dog - you have my complete sympathy. Took us 8 months to decide to adopt again after losing our older boy and even once we decided to get another dog we are on the hunt for "the one." When I lost my first dog I was devastated, but wanted another dog - didn't know what to do without one - and my mom said "one day you'll see your next dog and you'll just know." She was right - that second dog is pushing 15....of course he attached himself to my father so I left him at home when I moved out after college. Anyway - I was never able to repeat a breed, I found I just compared them to my previous dog.

I was never able to repeat a breed, I found I just compared them to my previous dog.That's a good point, i remember a couple of years ago a guy being approved to adopt but would never settle on one of the dozens we had because none of them measured up to the one he was replacing. I hadn't thought of that, but it wouldn't hurt to go with a similar size, temperament breed if you have that issue. I haven't really had to think about that yet, my first dog was a mutt and the Shepherd, though we loved and hated to lose him, was an idiot! After him we went small dogs, but I can see having trouble replacing our Cricket and instead going with a Yorkie (similar size, etc.)

I remember meeting a strange St. Bernard and letting him kiss and slobber me. LOL! :teehee: In a way I think I was thinking 'I'll NEVER have one of these, I might as well enjoy one good slobbering' :teehee:

my dogs have developed this habit of getting into the trash on the nights my DBF sleeps over, i think they're getting back at me for not having them in the bed. And the other day i was letting them out of my room for lunch and my younger one decided to stand in her water dish to wait for me...little brats

I love dogs, too! I think they are God's Gift! And I love the Dog Whisperer who is helping people help dogs all over the world!
