    We had a Boston. They are awesome dogs. They can be as active or as lazy as you want them to be.

    Over the years I (and my Wife) have had some really fine Dogs (and Cats).

    When my Wife died and not long after my two Dogs died, friends kept telling me I should get another dog.
    I kept saying I couldn't take care of another Dog, using a knee and shoulder operations as an excuse
    But the truth was I couldn't stand the thought of something else I loved dying.

    A lady friend's Boarder Collie had puppies and she tried to give me one but I just used my same excuse again.
    Then a little later we were shooting and she showed me a picture of the Puppy.
    Right away I wanted the Dog.

    I call Him Badger.
    Now, I can't imagine life without Him.

    A local friend, a English Wildlife Artist, painted a picture of Badger.
    It's my prized possession.

    David Prescott, the Artist, also painted one of my Cats, "Bugs". :)

    I like most dogs except Cockers but I will always have a place in my heart for Pitties. Both of ours have been loyal, smart, and low maintenance. Both love to travel with us. Our first one was sometimes dog aggressive. She never started it but she would finish it.

    If someone doesn't understand why you need a dog, M2 Carbine, they wouldn't understand your answer anyway. A dog will fill a hole in your heart that nothing else will fill.

    This is Bogie's first day with us. He is not real sure about anything right now. This is what a scared GSD looks like.

    Here he is a few weeks later. See his empty ice cream cup? I don't recall what he had on the empty paper plate. Must have been good though. He insists on sleeping in the laundry room, and that's OK.

    This is Girl, Basil's companion (the "breeder" we got her from named all her dogs after hard alcohol, her real name is Black Velvet).

    She was very timid for the first year (has to eat alone in her safe space), but has really warmed up to us :)

    These two dogs are like pees in a pod, if one goes outside the other doesn't, two minutes later they're both scratching at the door, and greet each other like they've been apart for years.

    I often wonder what the neighbors must think when they drive by and see these guys.

    The life of Moose, our two year old Welsh Terrier. He's a little sweetheart. Still has Terrier spirit though.
