  •  Our rottie, German shepherd and blood hound (6+ / 0-)

    mix pound puppy got the kids' Halloween and Easter candy off and on for several years until we all got careful enough to be sure it was never in her reach.

    She also managed to eat sticks of butter left too close to the counter edge, turquoise modeling clay (talk about beautiful shit) and a Christmas ornament - only the wire hanger protruded out of each end of a segment of poop.

    There were other things on the lawn stolen from trash. I finally got a large step-on metal trash can for the kitchen she couldn't get into. A smaller one for the bathroom. I'll never forget the look on her face when she figured out they were beyond her skills.

    The only thing she ever passed up were coffee beans or grounds.

    For her breed and specific medical problems, she did well to make 12. And that combination of breeds resulted in the perfect kid pet. She adored them and scared all strangers that came on the property uninvited to leave at Olympic speed.

    That's my no mug shots picture of a wonderful dog. I was very careful with her successor, who was nowhere near as interested in food or trash.

    •  Did you see the rottie (6+ / 0-)

      in the pictures above? She's the only one with a big grin on her face!
      No shame in that dog. :)

        part Rottie and I think that is one of their traits. Who me? Grin. Wag.  Woof.  Shalom's other breed was always a mystery. Probably blue healer, definitely a herding dog. The joke was one ear was clearly rottie, the other... whatever her other parent was. :)

      was a lab, Newfie mix.  She was the most laid back thing ever.  It was rare for her to get into things but it did happen.  The chicken bones were the worst, I really panicked.  

      Everyone! Arms akimbo!
