    Riley is beautiful. I have never heard of that particular breed but it sounds like she is amazing.

    She'll actually weigh how her 'faction points' are with me before doing something she isn't supposed to, and if she thinks we're riding on a high at the moment, she'll pull a sneaky stunt... usually involving high-quality people food she's not supposed to have. She'll have a resigned 'it was worth it, do your worst!' look on her face as I'm chewing her out for it.

    When she was a wee puppy, she'd get horribly carsick and yak all over the back seat - but absolutely loved going for rides in helicopters. I took her to every job in Kodiak, since we were miles from nowhere and the Kodiak bears were thick and disrespectful of humans. She ran off quite a few big boys and set a perimeter around camp that she patrolled constantly without any training - it was all pure instinct. That allowed us to focus on our work without keeping an eye over our shoulders & packing large caliber guns around 24/7.

    Anyway, we got her for the instinctive bear qualities bred into Karelians. And it's pretty fascinating to see her work a bear... she lives and breathes to confront and deal with a bear & keeping her people safe. She loves people but is an absolute savage when it comes to killing all small, fluffy and cute animals. She tolerates our cat and puppies, everything else is up for a good killin' in her view.

    Awwww, they are fantastic. They looks like snuggly doggos, which are my favorite kind.

    I don’t understand how someone could ever come up with “just a dog.” We are pretty fortunate to have our furry family members. They bring so much extra to our lives. You should see when Tonks, the 130 lb Anatolian decides she needs to climb into my lap like the little dogs do.

    My wife and I have two more little furry family members that are rescues that have even more personality than the first two. These two are Sirius and Dobby. Sirius is the black and brown Pomeranian and Dobby is the blonde Chiweenie.

Nikoh got away a few years ago and I broke my wrist quickly into that chase, down a wet hill I went! I knew it but didn't care at the time as my only thought was "she can't get away, I will lose her".

    I have heard folks over the years use the term "he/she was just a dog". Couldn't disagree more. They were/are my best friends, my family. Paid like $20k overall on a few small surgeries and medications for Jerome over the years. I would pay triple that to have a few more days with my ugly little buddy!!

    Got this one tonight. Pixie just stepped off my lap onto Tonks's back. Tonks never really seemed to notice.
