Being social makes me swell!

I'll be moving to a new apartment, soon. This being New Zealand, it's got a big ol' yard and trees and junk, so I've made a decision to pop down to the SPCA and get me a dog.

Dunno what I'll select, family has two tried and true methods:

1) Go for the saddest, unhappiest looking dog (That got us a corgi/schnauzer cross, a happy little guy before cancer took him)

2) Go for the dog that's closest to, well, being written off. (See above)

Thoughts?

I just had a dogge over, housesitting for a friend while he went to Hobbiton. Big fellah, liked his walks, would jump on my bed and crush me half to death, loved getting a good scratching. Especially that little spot near the base of the tail that makes them squint and start reflexively pumping their back legs. Affectionate dogge.

My phone camera is pretty crap, but Ecce Dogge.



This is Lizzie. She hasn't seen me in half a year so she was a devil to photograph. Dad ended up lifting her for a bit, so yeah.



I get into the guest room and the first thing she does as I unpack is grab all my computer cords and cables and leap onto the bed with them. A feisty dogge.



Gave her a good long scratch. Ears, under chin, flanks, base of tail.

Good dogge.

When I see people petting dogges and naming their computers and anthropomorphicising their robots, the more I think that mankind might not be complete poo poo after all

I dunno about the Ferret, man. That poo poo gets loose and you're looking at a serious problem for the local wildlife.

Try a small-medium pet that won't get beaten up by your dog, like a rabbit.

Honestly having a pet(able) shark would be all kinds of cool. Especially if it hung around your beach pad in the summer months. Take a couple of drops of your blood, plop them in the estuary and watch that big lovable sucker swim up for a pet and some fish.

I'll give him a scratch behind the ears, though. Good dog.

I've never even seen a dog herding in person

My granddad used to have a fox terrier, who I'd named PJ at the age of Six. We didn't use him for the cattle, but against the rabbits and rats - he'd go down a hole or into a hay bale and drag out one of the buggers. Then he'd adjust his teeth on its neck and shake the poo poo out of it, snapping the neck or piercing an artery.

God drat he was a good dog, that fast little beggar. Most of the time I spent on the farm as a boy was up and down the valley with him.

I remember my dog loved long grass, sloping hills, warm dew, cold clean water, tons of running and goofing off, sniffing all the trees and to finish up by sleeping on a few sheepskin rugs in front of a roaring fireplace after a big ol' bowl of venison and dog biscuits.

New Zealand is good to its dogges, sometimes
