    It is rough losing a pet.

    But the local pound will have many more alert watchdogs, willing to tirelessly guard the couch. My favorites are basset hound, which is capable of conserving vast amounts of energy, and a Newfoundland, which will coat your carpets with a protective layer of hair.

    Yeah the reason I had a Schnauzer was because they don't shed. and I don't have a very large yard so I don't have room for a large dog.

    I will be getting a new dog, but I think I will wait a while. I am visiting Germany this summer and will probably wait till after that so I don't have to put a new dog in boarding while I am gone. And I will probably get another schnauzer. Hopefully a rescue like Taz was.

    Newfies are huge. My brother had one, a very sweet and lovable dog[1], that when she would jump up and put her giant paws on my shoulders as she stood on her hind legs, towered over me (and I'm 5'16" tall).










    1. Except for the violent drunk that lived down the street who deliberately tried to kill her by driving over her in his Yugo. All he succeeded in doing was breaking a dew claw and making her very angry. When he returned later that day she went all Cujo on his car with him inside pretty much ripping it apart.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    My neighbor to the back has two of them. Taz and them used to bark at each other. Taz was awfully brave then there was a fence between them.

    If they'd been able to get to Taz they probably would have slobbered him to death.

    Reminds me of the dog my mother had when I was in school. He was small but definitely an Alpha. She would pick me up after school and would have him with her. The route back and forth passed a place where there were horses. He never did anything on the way to get me but on the way back he would growl very quietly, almost under his breath, when we passed them. It was like he thought those were mighty big "dogs" there and he probably shouldn't push it.

    There were Rotties next door for a while. They dug huge potholes under the fence into my yard. They're gone and the landlord did kindly fill in the holes in my yard. The new renters have chihuahuas and the remaining gaps in my fence are no problems for them especially when the female chihuahua on the other side of me was in heat....
