    A fully house trained dog, and cheap to feed as well!

    This might be the best house trained dog that appears on this thread :smile:

    He was my late Mothers so I'm happy to give him house room, even came with his own bone attached to his lead.

    Bella on the kitchen floor waiting for the inevitable snack to be passed down.

    Bella is such a beauty! Does she always where her sock indoors, or is she recovering from a sore paw?

    So ... why, you are thinking, is pdh posting a blurry snap of some periwinkle in a "Dogs" thread?

    Well, the conversation just after I pressed the shutter went something like "For goodness' sake , your little doggie seems to have inadvertently startled me by creeping up behind me and suddenly yapping very loudly at me whilst I was concentrating on taking a photograph"
    [Note, I am paraphrasing a trifle from the actual words used]

    He clearly thought you were easy prey with your back to him and an armful of camera! Anyway, I have these in my garden and I didn't know they were called periwinkles so thanks for posting:)

    Sorry. Missed this one earlier.

    Bella did some serious damage to her paw a few years ago in a car crash. At one point the vets were considering having to amputate some of her toes. Thankfully that wasn't necessary in the end but she does have a permanent weakness in that foot. We came across these dog shoes and tried them out and she's been using them ever since. She's not a particularly sporty dog so the injury doesn't affect her too much - she still has plenty of mobility and is more than ready for 1.5-2 hour walks.

    with apologies for the poor quality (this lens' AF is so bloody unreliable ...) , can one of you dog -fanciers confirm this is an Akita?

    He does look like an Akita, Paul - and seems like a young one. I think this is a wonderful picture. He almost seems like an animal who came upon you in the wilds...but he (or she) looks very friendly. As a matter of fact, she/he looks like a sweetheart.

    it is a she, and she's about 8 or 9 months old ... she's getting walked every afternoon around the common, about the same time I tend to take my E-P2 for a walk if I go out ... very friendly and inquisitive indeed, but very quiet and gentle with it ... I'm not really a "doggy person" (though I have a soft spot for Snoop - at least in his crips incarnation 0 ) , but this one is a delight

    I don't have a dog but I was asked to take some photos of a friend's elderly dog!

    Such a sweetie - and so is Max, John.

    There's something about older good dogs that are always aw inducing.
