I’m taking a break from the Broncos today and focusing on something else for a while, how about this topic. Dogs.

After looking in shelters in California and Washington State for almost for 4 years for the right dog SHE found me in a shelter in Long Beach, WA about 2 months ago. She picked me, I didn’t pick her. It was clearly a God thing, I’m glad I waited for her. She’s exceeded all the expectations I had when I was looking for a dog times 10.

I have to say this is one of the best things that has helped me get out of my own head recently. I haven’t had my own dog since 1986 and “Ella” (Boston Terrier) has added so much to my personal well being. She’s got more endurance than a healthy Lab and will play fetch with me as long as my old right arm will allow me too. I’m convinced she’d run herself to death if I let her. Her energy and enthusiasm for play is such a joy to watch. I forget about everything when we get out and go play.

I try to get the beach or a park at least 3 times a week. She follows me everywhere I go with the ball in her mouth ready to play at all times. She goes with me in the car without a leash and is never less than 3 feet away from me, you talk about devotion and unconditional love. She’s the greatest dog I ever seen and her exception behavior is something I still can’t believe. She’s house trained, doesn’t bark at everything that moves and is the smartest dog I ever had in my life.

I know it’s a feel good topic but how do you guys feel about your dogs? I used to get bored and nauseated with other peoples dog stories, now 23 years I think I finally get it, I won’t be dog-less again I can tell you that.

BTW, the “W” on the hat is for Wyoming not Washington, GO POKES!!

My dog has his own Facebook fan club. If you're on Facebook, search for Boris the Angry Bulldog - you'll want to join. I don't update it all that much, but it still contains a degree of awesomeness that can't be replicated.

Just don't cross him. He'll eat your children.

This is my 8 month old boxer pup - "Brutus". He has been great company for me the last six months. My fiance has been illegally detained outside the country for over a year now so things have been tough. She had him delivered to me for my birthday. He can be a real pain in the ass but I don't know what I would do without him.

It is a very long story. Basically, she has been raised in the U.S. since she was a child and has dual citizenship with the U.S. and Mexico. Her parents passed away in their hometown in Mexico and she went home for the funeral. She and her brother inherited some very valuable property. When she tried to leave to come home they accused her of having false documents (even though she had been traveling back and forth for years). They charged her with some b.s. felonies, found her guilty and sentenced her to community service and huge fines. The property did not have to be sold to pay the fines like they thought. Afterwards, they did not expunge her record as promised. Her U.S. passport was revoked because of this. After a lengthy legal battle, the convictions were overturned and the state which convicted her has been ordered to pay her a substantial amount of money. Next, we had to get her U.S passport re-issued which was hell since she was not here. It was mailed twice and intercepted twice. We got the U.S. to forward it to a non-relative friend who was able to carry it to her hidden in her luggage. I have been tagged as some kind of high risk individual and can't get into Mexico. Now, we are awaiting re-issuance of her Mexican travel documents and are having a hearing to begin the process of renouncing her Mexican citizenship. Throw in a few death threats, my home being broken into, a full-time body guard.... Welcome to our world.

I must confess Iím a double dipper this is Karma. I always thought I was a just a cat person too. Karma is the dominate one in the house. They coexist fairly well most of the time but Ella doesnít cross Karma. They couldnít be more different in personality, Ella the hyperactive high energy dog, Karma the peaceful and serene one. Love em both equally.

When I die I want all my dogs that have passed to greet me as they are the ones that have gotten me thru rough patches, two were given to me right after the infamous Jacksonville debacle.

We have two Black Labs. Ol' Limpy (formerly Lucky) is 14 now and she's a limper. She's a shelter dog we picked up 10 years ago. What a sweetheart. Everybody is gonna be heartbroken when she goes into the great beyond.

The younger one is 5, we got her a couple years ago from renter neighbors that couldn't take her with them. Since the two were pals already the younger one fit right in.

Yep, she is a full grown Yorkshire Terrier. About 7 pounds. There are plenty or reputable breeders you can buy from but they can be expensive. Check with the breed rescue. There are rescues for any breed you want. You will need to fill out an application and go through an approval process. Once approved, just wait for the right dog. I rescued a bullmastiff and she was a real sweetheart. Nice thing about the rescues is they are health checked and temperament tested. There is usually an adoption fee of a few hundred dollars.

Yeah, the Boris the Angry Bulldog thing is for irony. He's our second bulldog - they've both been the most non-aggressive dogs we've ever had. Athena was a little more aggressive with other animals - she hated ceding human attention. But she would let our kids climb on her, pull her ears, eat her food - whatever. She just loved people.

Boris isn't aggressive towards anything. Cats will come and rub against him, and he's just happy for the friend. Even frogs that we come across on our walks are generally safe around him, assuming he doesn't step on them. Bulldogs are perceived to be mean dogs by those who haven't been around them. But they are just big puffalumps. I love the breed.

1st pic is of our 4.5 LB Yorkshire Terrier Yaki Man enjoying a bath from Kitty Girl.
2nd pic is of Yaki and Tom catching a nap until I disturb them w/ the camera. Tom is the kitten of Kitty girl.
3rd pic is of Lucy our Yorkshire/Maltese mix. In this pic she is very shabby and in need of a major grooming. She is 10 LB's and very much has mind of her own. She tries to rule the roost, but Yaki really runs the house.

They all love that black cat!

I gave Yaki Man to my fiance for her bday 3 yrs ago. and he has become my best friend. I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world. He is a very smart dog.

Cruise the shelters. You'll find something.
