carl, that looks like my Dusty(we "think" a schnauzer/wirehair pointer cross, or a schnauzer/catahoula cross, got him at a shelter in Louisiana) before he gets a grooming. Speaking of, I started on it today, I've already thrown out a whole plastic grocery bag full of his hair. He doesn't shed, so he needs the twice yearly shaves. All I have left is his face, and clean up work around his paws(but those areas are a two person job).

Here he is right after a professional grooming. I'm not nearly as good as that, but I get the job done.

He's the old boy, 11 this fall. He's got cataracts, moves a lot slower than he used to, and has developed what seems to be dementia.

We also have Casey, and Old English bulldogge, and Porthos, a pug.

It's hard to get a good picture of Casey because her face is so dark, she's a full brindle.

What breeds does Beebe have in her? She looks so much like my dog who is a lab/boxer mix, except my dog's nose isn't as..pointy, I guess. At first, my screen wasn't completely scrolled over to the right, so I could only see the ear and eye and I thought, "How does this person have a picture of my dog?!"

>What breeds does Beebe have in her?

I wish I knew, Star. I think we say shepard mix on our web site. Her tail is a tight circle, like a Husky's, without the fur. Guess I could spin the giant wheel of dog breeds. The thing is, I have no way of finding out. She was rescued from Va Beach's animal control--her owner was arrested and they confiscated her. When he got out of jail, he didn't have the money to get the dog out. The rescue organization I volunteer for pulled her out and I've been fostering her ever since. It's been 3 years. I ought to own up to the fact that she's mine...doggy mental problems, and all.

THis is the little WEstie pup I'm dog sitting for. He's no bigger than a kitten and makes my 'small' dogs look huge. He only weighs two lbs.

So grateful for my vets. Little Jack was so itchy and the vet said it was allergies and gave him cortisone, which seems to be helping a lot. Can't see my babies uncomfortable, now can I?
