  2. 1- How many dogs do you have right now?

    We have two Black Labradors.

    2- What other animals do you have?

    One indoor fish and a few in the pond.

    3- Do you breed your animals? How many times a year? Do you sell the pups?

    No, we don’t breed them.

    4- Do you have purebred or mixed breed dogs?

    Both the girls are purebred.

    5- If you fell on hard times, would you lower your living standards and keep your animals or get rid of them so you could still live the same lifestyle?

    We’d reduce our spending, there are plenty of things we have that we don’t really need like cable TV and the internet, if it was a choice between having those things or feeding the girls, it would be an obvious “No contest”.

    6- What dog food do you feed and why if you have a reason for feeding it (cost, ingredients, etc.)

    Dallas has Bakers Weight Control, Jessie has canned as an additional food as she doesn’t like just hard food. I mix it with the Bakers so she still has some crunch.

    7- Your dogs live inside or out?

    Inside, they are family not barnyard animals.

    8- Are your animals all fixed or used for breeding?

    Both booked to be done this summer.

    9- Are your dogs service dogs, show, or pets?

    They’re pets, but Jessie “works” since she is very high energy.

    10- Last but not least and the only one that is to be “rated”….what is your biggest (choose only ONE topic to be your choice pick) pet peeve about other dog owners? Including BYB’s, owners that shouldn’t even have dogs, show dogs, apartment dogs, working dogs, etc.!

    Owners that shouldn’t have dogs. I hate to see them abused or mistreated or disregarded, considering what an amazing creature they are. If you don’t love it or won’t look after it, then don’t have it. It’s not compulsory to own a dog. It’s an honour to have such a magnificent animal share your life, it deserves the best you can give it.

  3. 1- How many dogs do you have right now?
    Four. 😀

    2- What other animals do you have?
    3 birds, 1 parrot, and a turtle.

    3- Do you breed your animals? How many times a year? Do you sell the pups?
    Nope.

    4- Do you have purebred or mixed breed dogs?
    Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, and two mixed breeds.

    5- If you fell on hard times, would you lower your living standards and keep your animals or get rid of them so you could still live the same lifestyle?
    Probably get rid of the birds and turtle but keep the dogs for sure.

    6- What dog food do you feed and why if you have a reason for feeding it (cost, ingredients, etc.)
    Dry dog food. Both cost AND ingredients.

    7- Your dogs live inside or out?
    Live outside but the small dogs come inside to sleep.

    8- Are your animals all fixed or used for breeding?
    Fixed.

    9- Are your dogs service dogs, show, or pets?
    Just pets. 🙂

    10- What is your biggest pet peeve about other dog owners?
    I hate when people have far too many dogs to care for. I have four and that be a large amount but they are ALL happy and well taken care of.

    It’d be up to my parents, but I would try to keep the dogs.

    6- What dog food do you feed and why if you have a reason for feeding it (cost, ingredients, etc.)
    Diamond Dog food, but we are switching to Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul for a little bit. It’s cheap, and then dogs do well on it.

    7- Your dogs live inside or out?
    Outside, but come inside at night.

    8- Are your animals all fixed or used for breeding?
    The dogs are both neutered, the rabbit is not, and the chickens obviously aren’t.

    1- How many dogs do you have right now? 3

    2- What other animals do you have? 1 cat

    3- Do you breed your animals? How many times a year? Do you sell the pups? Nope – all fixed

    4- Do you have purebred or mixed breed dogs? Purebred

    5- If you fell on hard times, would you lower your living standards and keep your animals or get rid of them so you could still live the same lifestyle? To a point if I was in danger of losing my home – I would have one of my family members take my dogs until I can get back on my feet. I took 3 of my siblings dogs for about 6 months until they got back on their feet.

    6- What dog food do you feed and why if you have a reason for feeding it (cost, ingredients, etc.) Blue Buffalo – recommendations from YA believe it or not. My labs are doing much better on it.

    7- Your dogs live inside or out? Inside

    8- Are your animals all fixed or used for breeding? All fixed

    9- Are your dogs service dogs, show, or pets? My oldest lab is 13 so he’s a pet. My Shih-Tzu had back surgery and doesn’t walk well – pet. My youngest lab does Rally O and Competitive Obedience.

    10- Pet Peeve – I have two – a.) People with untrained dogs who walk them on one of those retractable leads and let their unruly pooch out on every inch of it terrorizing 25 feet around them. b.) People who think that it’s “cute” to let their small dogs charge barking at people. I guarantee you if one of my labs did that – someone would call animal control – double standards for large versus small dogs.
