Smile - Breeds? Breeds?

I have two dogs - one is a male pomeranian/corgi mix, Rex, and the other is a terrier mix, Ruby. I bought Rex, and Ruby was a shelter dog. Rex is my tiny little man - almost 7 pounds - soooo patient and loving, terrific with my kids, and a real companion to me. Ruby is Rex's best friend - we say that we got her for him, not us! She is our watch-dog, and the one who is always getting into stuff, while Rex is content to just sit on my lap, or cuddle up with the kids.

Of course, being a house with a 4 yo and 7 yo, we also have 2 rats and 3 fish! Daily, my kids ask for more pets!

Here is one I use often. It makes about 50 or so treats. I sometimes vary it by adding cooked carrots & green beans(diced), or diced apples.

3/4 cup hot water
1/2 beef boulion cube, put in the hot water to dissolve
1/2 cup oleo
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 egg
3 cup whole wheat flour
Mis together. Roll out. Cut with bone shaped cutter. Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes.
If you want any more recipes just pm me and I will send them to you directly.
They are not hard to make at all. I have some with salmon, peanut butter, & applesauce, to name a few.
It usually takes me about 2 hours to do 2 batches of treats.
Ever since the recall on treats I have made all of Reggies.
Good luck!

I have a German Shepherd Dog, female 90lbs who works as my service dog, her name is Gerda, then we have a plott hound named Brina, then Timber the beagle, and the littles are Bean, Lane, Guinny, and Jackson, all chihuahuas. Also a half tame half feral cat named Joey. I like the girls better, but they are breeds that tend to obey better. My husband loves his boys.

I'm currently alpha female to a pack of 4 dogs! Lucy, my Boston Terrier just turned 9. My boys, Harley (chihuahua 3yrs), Hershey (mini dachshund 1 yr) and Jasper (standard schnauzer No idea) round out the crew. Jasper is a rescue. Apparently a puppy mill went out of business and dumped 80+ dogs in my area. A local rescue and several vets jumped in to help. Jasp has come so far in the nearly two months I've had him.

All my furbabies are precious to me. I have to admit though, I'd jump at the chance for more dachshunds in the future. I have my hands full right now.

Gender preference? Not really. I've found I have a harder time house training the males but other than that I love em all.

We have a female Boxer. We adopted her a couple years ago. She is just the best dog. Very smart, silly, affectionate, etc. etc. We had a male but we had to put him down a few months ago as he suddenly got sick and went into kidney failure. Our female is fawn in color. Our male was dark brindle, almost a reverse brindle.

I grew up with Boxers and absolutely love them to pieces.

We also have a 2 yo Arabian horse. He is a bay gelding. I love Arabians to pieces too.

BOXERS rule! We have 2, Sally and Paisley, and before them we had Katie and Judy, and before that pair we had Lorelei. All flashy brindles, all girls. I grew up with Baron, a big fawn Boxer boy. Boxers were so popular in the '50s, and we loved that dog, and oh man did he love us. My older brother has an oil painting that our mom had done of Baron, and it hangs in his bedroom and he still gets misty eyed about that dog, and he's 64 years old! Like me, he's always got a Boxer in his life.

I have a 2 year old min pin named Spock. He is a wonderful little guy. He has been the best dog I have had in a long time. I am more of a cat person but he is about the size of one my cats so he fits right in.

We have all rescues--I have to admit a preference for the black dogs, who have a much harder time of being adopted than the non-black pups. Our current pack:

14 year old lab/malamute--getting old, hubby will be heartbroken when he passes over the rainbow bridge

8 year old aussie mix--she's my velcro dog

6 month old lab-a-mutt--she's getting snorfleed today so she'll be my little hyster-sister. She's my little velcro dog-in-training

I suppose that I prefer females--they are more easily trained, in my opinion. Hubby prefers the independence of male dogs.
