Probably has to do with Duke still being a puppy basically (he's only a year old), and Tyson is going on 9 years now. I'd like to get a second dog, but I know Tyson would not be happy with that. I'll probably wait until he passes on before getting a second dog (probably another Shepherd, because I love them too much).


That's pretty old for a giant breed (the Irish wolfhound).

He wasn't a pure-bred. He was mixed with German Wirehaired Pointer, but he was still just as big as a Wolfhound and looked exactly like one. My vet said that's one of the reasons why he was as healthy as he was.

We have a purebred Dobermann Pinscher named Berlin. She's a year and a half old, black & tan, and weighs just over 50 lbs. She's a lady. :)

We have a pure breed fawn American Boxer named Chesed. She'll be 3 years old this December. My daughter has a maltese-shih tzu mixed breed named Simchah.

When I leave in my own house I'm gonna get a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog. They are just adorable!

I have three adorable cats: Anastasia, Polgar, and Josephine. Ana and Josie are eight years old, while Polgar is seven.

Old, old pics of Ana & Polgar

And for those who clicked through, yes, Ana's tail has been kinked like that since birth; don';t worry, she doesn't mind at all.
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

Just one cat, Tom, who used to belong to my grandfather. We took him in after he was left on his own after my grandparents passed. He's a quirky creature.

My girlfriend and I have two cats, Holly and Todd. Last year another one of ours, Lu (short for Lucius), passed from diabetes.

He was a ragdoll cat, which made it a hassle when you had to move him, but hilarious at other times. I wasn't really a cat person until I lived with Beth, but now I really love them. Once we move out of our current house, she wants to get a dog of some type, though.
