    Sadie is mostly a Basenji and a little something. The something is unknown but I thinking some sort of terrior but not sure. She is the most mild mannered dog I've ever known. Likes to greet you and then moves on to a quiet corner. Sometimes were unsure if we own a dog because she tends to go the the bedrooms to chill even when we are in the house. When the stove is going, she tends to be with us though. If she see's another dog, her hair rises on her back and she's ready to pounce. I got her from a dog orphanage that originated from Tenn after Hurricane Katrina. She is a wonderful companion and I would get another one if the chance arises.

    Never had a dog but my MIL had an older Roti. My wife spent a few weeks down there and her and the dog became best buddies. I went down to drive her back and watched them play their favorite game. She would hold the end of a stick and he would act like he was trying to take it away from her. Like an idiot I wanted to play and took the end of the stick. That sucker whipped his neck and tossed me halfway across the yard. I wasn't part of the game. :lol:

    Them bad boys have a mean growl.

    Funny part is that most folks do not realize that the big growling is their way of "talking". As well, they play hard and enjoy that type of play. It is just wild to watch a young litter of Rott puppies play together. They carry on like a midget football team. Amazing to see adult Rotts who are trained as pullers, able to pull in excess of 3300lbs. on a pulling sled. If they can drop their front shoulders and dig in, hang on because you are in for a ride.

    Can't get him into the pool it self and believe me i have tried. He will put his paws in the water on the top step and keep dropping his ball to play but won't actually go for a swim. He is 140lbs of love.

    He is obsessed with playing ball, he would kill him self in the summer heat if someone would keep throwing the ball.

    This is Jupiter. We call her "Joop"... She's a "Rescue dog."
    Scared of her own shadow. Scared of my acoustic guitar...
    (I don't play it that well but not AWFULLY bad either!)
    Doesn't immediately take to strangers & won't even
    approach them unless I sit next to them sweet talk her.
    Weighs about 35 lbs. & looks like a Pit, but we did a
    "Doggie DNA" swab, & the results say she's a Jack Russell
    & a Chow. Her coloring is that of a Brittany Spaniel...
    I think she's got some kinda "herder" in her,
    as she'll walk behind me & bump me with her nose like she
    wants me to change directions...
    She's that happiest, bounciest little girl I've ever seen...

    These guys are my best laborers. :rolleyes: I will try to post a better, closer pic of them. Oh, here is one. Both are rescues. Went to adopt the male (chocolate) and found out the female (black) was going to be the last one of the litter left. Couldn't leave her there all by herself! So we have a brother and sister. Lab mixed with something else. Is there a dog breed called Trouble? Yea, that might be what else. ;lol

    Back in august i had to put down my best friend cheyenne due to kidney failure and some other complications. She was my 7yr old black lab and was basically my shadow. Two days later my 13yr old lab jake passed away from a broken heart. He just wanted to go see his girlfriend cheyenne. Well im a lab guy and just can't be without one so here's "millie" She's got some big paws to fill but she's definately brought some happiness and excitement back into this house.

    RIP cheyenne

    Sadie is mostly a Basenji with a small mix of something else... just can't figure it out. She doesn't bark for the most part and that is common with the Basenji dog. She is very independent, sort of like a cat. Loves to great you with excitement and then she'll wonder off and catch a nap.

    Sorry for your losses smokin. Millie looks great. Good choice. She will be nothing but perfectly well behaved, just like the other guys when they were pups. ;lol But she will carry on that great Lab tradition. My two dogs are just as mello as can be and they are only 8 months old. Some days trouble is their middle name. But, my wife and I were talking again the other day that you could not ask for two better dogs to be around young children.
