Lovely little dog Lilith but may lack spine... The latest Mrs M hated everything about me I am afraid. I would have been all right if I had just been someone else...

Go for him Lilith!

Money no object...

I know you have a sylph like figure, but since we got our pupling, we've both lost over ten pounds just walking!

Sets us up for the chilled white after a hike through the countryside, breathing all that clean air!

Awwww.
I can't stand dogs.
Actually that's not true, I can't stand dogs who are not trained properly and treated like children or largely ignored. I like dogs who are treated like dogs and properly trained and cared for by their owners. The worst thing for me to see is a dog waddling over to his owner at the dinner table and being fed so they sit and beg for sweets and titbits then put their tongue in their owners mouth whlie the owner fawns in baby talk. Bleurgh. Bit like the fat aunt in Harry potter. These dogs always bite. I like a dog to be a dog, just like I like a man to be a Man. Sadly most of the time they are not. Hmn. I must email you regarding a certain someone Lilith ;-) Glad E-K's back, hurrah!

I think a pure Jack Russell would be a bit much for us Mutley...they are like a muscle on amphetamines. The poodle would mellow him, you have to remember that as much as we might like long walks, we are hippies and too much carnage and excitement (as you have had with your own enchanting pooch) would play havoc with the nerves.

I am afraid I missed this little chap, EK. Too late!

That's it Scrobs me ole mucker. I could certainly do with walking off a few bottles of rich Australian red wine...

Begging dogs are a pain Philipa, I agree. I had a poodle, she was easy peasy, loving and fun and energetic. But she developed all sorts of problems (over bred)and had to have a special diet that needed freshly preparing and she couldn't have babies, so something wasnt quite right with her. Developed dementia after being kicked by a horse and she is now chasing rabbits in the firmament.

I am at home a lot now, and Boyfriend is too, so the timing would be good.

No one in their right mind would get a dog. They are grubby and smelly and get into scrapes. They piss and poo. But the dogs I have loved have made me laugh and laugh and laugh. You Ok Pip?

lilith poodles are not "mellow"
They are tough dogs , the hitch adopted one when I was 14 (well my mother did) she was blind and going to be put down so we had her to add to the yorkshire terrier that we had,
My mother is crap at chosing dogs she thought we were going to end up with a poncy Yorkie, i was just desperate for a dog (aged 11) so gave in , he turned out to be a slavering savage beast twice the size of a normal yorkie and with floppy ears, i may post post photos of him and the poodle on my blog

I've got a pic of me somewhere with an Irish Wolfhound - his owner behaved far worse than a dog I'm afraid, and they criticise being single! Mind you they wouldn't wash the dog - it smelled terrible. When I offered to bath him one glorious summers day the owner and his mum (yes, one of those) reacted as if I'd suggested pouring boiling oil on it in the middle of the carpet. 'But I bath my horse' I countered, puzzled, 'and he lives in a field'. It didn't sink in - there's just no reasoning with some people, even posh folks.

Lilith said...

Hitch. Totally agree. PERFECT combination.

And poodles are not mellow, but they are ridiculously easy to train, unlike the JR. The spunkiness of the the Jack would ramp up their sense of fun!

Lilith said...

Arrrgh..smelly dogs Philipa. Spaniels are the worst. Especially the working kind...all those opportunities to roll in fox/badger/?? shit.

However, a mongrel I adored called Hamish smelled gorgeous. I used to love it when he had been in my car, and breathe him in.. Oh, it was annoying too, hair everywhere, the occasional smear of shit on the back of the passenger seat, mud, leaping about destroying everything he landed on, but I loved him dearly. He walked like a shopping trolley and weighed about 6 stone.
