I have a Shih Tzu named Daisy (hence my username) and she’s my best friend.  Not to be creepy but we do everything together like go for walks, go for car rides, go to the park,  go to friend’s houses.  She’s the best!  and so loving!  But the one thing I hate is I have to bathe her at least every 10 days or she starts to STINK.  Since she sleeps in my bed I stay up on it.  And I have to comb her regularly or she gets little knots on her ears and poor thing, it’s my responsibility to get them out. Anyway. That’s it.  House training her was easy, she doesn’t chew things, she’s overall the best dog ever ๐Ÿ™‚

LOVE:  Her sweet disposition.  She is extremely gentle even though she is a DA breed.  She gets overjoyed about walks on the beach, digging in the sand and swimming in the ocean.  When she eats she gets so into it she ends up with food in her ears, eyes and up her nose.  I enjoy the fact that she lives life to the fullest in every moment.  

HATE:  She is extremely intelligent to a fault.  And this dog has got to be the most stubborn dog on the face of the earth.

Darling Husband and I recued a poodle mix a little more than a year ago.  She is lots of fun and she is sooooo good with our almost 9 month old boy, but I hate that she is constantly leaking her paws, so much that they are brown now.  Three paws are brown/red-ish and one stayed white (i guess that one isnt leaking material).  The Vet said that maybe she has some allergy thing going on.  We spent so much money on tests to see if in fact she was allergic to something and nothing came up.  We have tried putting socks on her, but she pulls them off.  We yelled at her (not loudly or meanly) but that doesnt work either.  Last night, we were talking about it and we think maybe she has some sort of anxiety and this is her way with coping with it?  Who knows!  Anyway, yeah that’s what i dont like about her ๐Ÿ™

My dog is a shiba inu. The one thing that drives me crazy is that he likes to do a siba 500. A shiba 500 is a period of time where the dog runs accross the room for several minutes at fast speed. He does it sometime when we are sleeping while playing with his very loud sqyeeky toys. It drives me crazy especially now since I have a 9 month old who sleeps in his pack in play in our room as well.

We have two Maine Coon cats, one is 3 or 4 years old, and the other is 8months old. They are hilarious and I love it when they play together, and they both make these cute little chirping/trilling noise (really hard to explain…). BUT the kitten farts A LOT, and the other cat loses so much hair I am surprised she’s not completely bald!!!!!!!!

@Bored6 LMFAO at the ‘Shiba 500’. That’s hilarious! But obviously not for you in the middle of the night ๐Ÿ™‚

We moved the litter trays into their outside ‘catio’ which they access through a cat flap in the dining room. Since the kitten SOMEHOW managed to poop on the side of the tray… And the litter gets stuck in the fur between their toes. I am so much more sane now that it is outside lol..

I love my cat because shes super lovey and sweet, has 9 extra toes (!!!!) and makes dumb faces like this 

 

The only problem I have with her is she isn’t always reliable in using her litter box. I currently live at home with my mom and my moms huge siamese is a bully, which my vet confirmed as being the reason why my cat acts the way she does ๐Ÿ™

I am probably a little obsessed with my pups, but they are my fiance and I’s babies. 

I have a Corgi/Jack Russell mix named Hugo. He will be 2 in April. He is so fun! He is super smart, so loving, sweet, and has such a fun personality. He loves to give everyone kisses. The only thing about Hugo is that is absolutely crazy. He never sits still, its that Jack Russell in him. 

I also have a Corgi/Beagle mix named Lola. She will be 2 in October. She has some serious attitude! She also loves to give kisses and is very loving. She is a little lazy pup that loves to cuddle. The one thing that I don’t love about Lola is that she has frequent urinary issues as in UTI’s. She has a very long torso that is low to the ground which is a cause for her frequent UTI’s. So we are always at the vet with her. That is not her fault at all,  I wish she didn’t have these issues! Other than that my two furbabies are perfect!

Hugo is on the left and Lola is on the right!

FlorindaGrau:  My malamute (1 year old) is divine! He has a super cheeky personality and backchats often. This could be seen as a ‘negative’, but I truly love the fact that while I own him, I’ll never truly ‘own’ him! He likes to push the boundaries to be the boss, so often needs reprimanding to put him back in his place. His sleep schedule was all messed up for about a week after the holidays, because SO was working really odd hours, so our pup was waking us up frequently between 2am – 6am for play time, which at the time was frustrating, but also funny. It wasn’t his fault!

Come brushing time, he’ll act like he hates it but will make no effort to move away.

Come feeding time, he’ll act like he’s never been fed his whole life! 

Loves playing fetch and going for walks. 

He gets REALLY excited when he goes to the vet and is SO NOISY, trying to meet all the dogs and all the people in the waiting room. Once when I picked him up from doggy day care, he refused to leave the vets, like walked backwards from the door. It was pretty embarrassing! One of the guys in the waiting room was laughing while I’m trying to drag a 35kg dog out the door! In the end I had to bribe him with the promise of food, and even then he wouldn’t get in the car. Had to pick him up and put him in, LOL!

Such a funny creature!

Bored6:  haha, my mal does this (we call them zoomies!) in the back yard. Sometimes it’s randomly, other times because you’ve told him off for something! When this happens and we’re in the yard, we don’t move an inch because he tends to remember where you are and runs very close – almost like he’s got his ‘zoomie route’ all mapped out!
