  1. My old dog before Spike was a BC/Lab/Staff mix - he was thirteen when I adopted him and seventeen and a bit when he died, and I - well, any individual dog is irreplaceable, but I couldn't be walking around dogless. All I knew for sure was that I wanted an active, intelligent dog that I could do stuff with, an interesting dog that'd keep me busy and give me a reason not to turn myself into a 700lb couchpotato. I told the shelter I needed a gundog, herding dog or mix thereof under two years old that had to be good with cats - Spike was the first dog they got in who fitted that description and he happened to be a purebred BC. I went to meet him and boom - love at first sight like a lightning bolt. I'm just lucky he decided to keep me
  2. I'm still here - and lurking on the bc-l yahoolist too, though I almost never post there. PSmitty, that is my foster failure, Squish the German Shorthaired Pointer - I have almost as many pics of him as I do of Spike. i keep most of them here: http://pics.livejournal.com/lizblackdog/gallery/00008cdy I planned on homing all the kittens, but the little calico standing by her mother's head forced me to rethink that, so Spike has two permanent cats. The silver-and-gold striped kitten is gone to a great home who post regular Internet updates with pics, the orange and white is still looking, and the kitten that isn't in that pic (a white-footed tabby tomkitten who's showing signs of growing to be cougar-sized) is going to my mother. and yayyy! I never meant to leave, I just got sucked into LiveJournal dog communities. Where, incidentally, I have never stopped recommending this board to people with collies... (((hugs Andrea))) I'm glad you're still here. I should've stayed in tough and not been such a jerk
  3. It's been a while since I was here - some familiar faces still! I don't have any pics of the entire family all together but these cover everyone... (P.S. Spike's cat was already seven weeks pregnant when we adopted her. I don't want anyone thinking I would have let that happen)
  4. I'm so glad he's okay! I'd take the day off if it were me - you'll hardly be fit to do any work after a fright like that anyway. Throw the boy a ball for me when he's feeling more up to it... Liz & the Captain xxx
  5. That was last winter's one and only snowfall, and the first we've had here in about five years, so I had to make sure to photograph Spike in it. Bournemouth is too damn far South...
  6. I ended up as CaptainsLady on Champdogs because it has some sort of filter that won't allow the word 'bitch' in a username, which I thought was a bit daft on a board about dogs! I haven't bothered with them for a long time, though; I like it much better here. This is my Spike Liz & the Captain xxx
  7. I feed raw myself, but if I was going for a good kibble I'd look at James Wellbeloved or Burns. And welcome to the boards - I have a vague memory of seeing you around when I lurked at Champdogs, and if I'm right you should fit in well here. Rub Tor's ears for me! Liz & the Captain xxx
  8. Well, this won't be fun for either of you, but things could have been a lot worse. Prayers & good wishes for beautiful Briar Rose, Liz & Spike xxx
  9. If it was Spike - I would do it. Good luck to you and Remi, Liz & Spike xxx
  10. ^Even more off-topic: Spike did something similar with a herding video, but lost interest after realising there was no way he could get in the little box and the sheep weren't behind it. (Spike has never seen a real sheep as far as I know - he might have tried harder if he had). Max, my foster GSP, is fascinated by mirrors and will gaze at himself for hours. His new mum put a picture of him on her screensaver and now he stares at that too. Liz n' Spike xxx
  11. Praying for Briar Rose now. (And hug Rob for me so he doesn't feel left out...) Liz & Spike xxx
  12. ((((hugs for Kim and Charlotte)))) Liz & Spike xxxxxx
  13. ^still praying for you as well - I hadn't forgotten! L & S xxx
