At one point we had 4 dogs as well as all other mentioned pets. 2 minature dauchsunds. Cute as all get out and as dumb as the piece of gum that you stepped on. One time I was holding the door open and telling one of the dauchusnds "Out Mark. Out Mark" He was 3 feet away from the door. He looked at me and sat down as if to say, I know you are talking to me but I do not know what you are saying. About a month later they were given to very very nice family.
BTW they were brothers and their names were Mark and Brian. Can anyone tell me who they were named after? Scott

Trainwire left out the Queensland Heeler (Austrailian Cattle Dog) that'll eat the light bulb and then ask if you have any more snacks for him. I've kept mostly those, and Border Collies, both smarter than a whip, the AuCaDogs always in mischief. We're dogless right now. The last one, a Rottweiler, had an argument with me over a mourning dove. I ended up with 21 stitches in my handed, and he ended up with a lethal injection (if we didn't live here in the city, it would have been a .45 on the spot) We're still trying to decide on a nice mellow sort of dog to get.
