Figured THIS is the place to show my new ”little pistol”, Kimber.

After 3 years without a pup, we broke down and found this little guy. 🇺🇸

Dogs are great!

Is it just me? "Kimber" sounds like a girl's name. :)
WHATEVER YOU DO: Never name two dogs in a row with very similar sounding names.
I've screwed up my current pup "Harley" real good by also calling him "Herbie" until he was about three years old. o_O

Great little dog, they are so cute at that age. It's a small world my dog's name is Kimber also.

Ah, so the bowtie is a decoy!! :)
Now that I look again, Kimber does have that "attitude stance" thing going...
....'till he licks you to death! Ha!!!

Dogs are wonderful, loyal creatures.
Cat-people don't know what they're missing.

On AOL tonight, there was an article by some Ph.D. researcher debunking the notion that a dog ages seven years for every one year in human terms.
It turns out the relationship is not linear. (Something I always suspected intuitively, but never gave much deliberate thought to.)

Dogs age much more quickly in their early years (by age 9 months, some breeds can even have offspring).
At about 5 human years, (comparative middle-age for a dog) a dog's aging slows down considerably.

So, the takeaway is that your pup is probably "older" than you think, but you're gaining rapidly by comparison the older the dog gets.

Also, there's a huge difference between different breeds of dogs. Large dog breeds tend to have shorter lives than small dogs.

So true. Our Briard only lived until seven. Avg for that breed is 8-10 but he had lymphoma and treatments failed. Even prior to that though, he showed his elder status. He was what they called a “giant” at 137 lbs. normal for a male is about 80 lbs.

All (3) of my dachshunds lived to be 14-15, and one needed back surgery. (He was my favorite, and I still miss him.)
My current pup (also a dachshund) is well on his way for a nice healthy, fun life too.
They were (are) all AKC short-hair, black & tan mini's (about 14 pounds), male, and not neutered.
I've been told plenty of times that dachshunds will live a little longer if neutered (probably also if spayed), but I prefer my pups to leave this world the way they arrived.
Intact. :)

My current pup, Harley, is a bit of a horn-dog, so the non-neutering thing is more of an issue with him.
Not much more now as a few years ago, though.
And "Harley" turned out to be the perfect name for him. (Assuming "Triple-D" wasn't already taken".)
"Definitely Destructive Dachshund". :)

But he's a good boy and we love him.

We have six rescues now. Two short haired Chihuahua’s, two long-haired Chihuahua‘s a Terrier and a Plot Hound. The Plot was an anti-coyote terrorism dog after a coyote grabbed our favorite little Chihuahua a couple years back.

When I saw the coyote through the bedroom window later, it started to spook the moment I touched the window. Immediately before I fired the shotgun through the window, I said to myself “how much could a window cost?“ It cost 600 bucks but well worth it!

When someone knocks on the door it sounds like the pound here.
