We have a new puppy intended to be our guard dog. Since the break-in I wanted a dog to bark and notify me that people are around, so a neighbor 'loaned' us a Pitbull/Foxhound mix from their litter of TWELVE.

Her name was Velvet when she arrived, but she didn't answer to that or even look at you when you would say it. We let her choose her own name. We were watching the animated movie "Igor" and the monster that was supposed to be named 'Evil' decided that she was too nice and changed it to 'Eva.' She immediately responded to that name and would look every time she hears it, so Eva it is. Plus, it fits since she was supposed to be a big mean guard dog, and she thinks she is a face-licking lap dog instead <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/rofl.gif" alt="Rofl" title="rofl" />

So, without further ado.....Introducing EVA!

Eva and son's girlfriend. You can see what a vicious dog she is - shoulda named her Cujo!

Not a good idea. I named one of my cats Psycho. It was a bad idea since she lives up to her name.

Peace
What break-in?

Somebody broke into the basement while we were home.

Eva's sister lives next door and she really looks like a Pitbull, but Eva took after her daddy and has the Foxhound look. I hope at least the barking will detour people from coming around, but I doubt it. We are boarding up the windows in the bedroom downstairs just in case.
Oh - and yes, Eggar and T both survived that horrible illness. Eggar went over three weeks without food and he was so horribly sick I thought he was a goner. But miraculously he survived, and now is fat and happy again. I still can't believe it, as the situation was so extreme.

So that's how those stories get started about cats having nine lives.
I never saw where you posted anything more about the sick kitties, and I didn't want to ask in case they didn't make it.
She looks very loved and loving-very devoted. Those will always be the best dogs. She's a keeper, I'm glad you all have each other.

Xena is at the background-gold/black she's got eyes like Eva-cocker/lab/pomeranian makes for a very sweet and athletic pup. Guess which one of the four out of five is my best watch dog-ever?

You must spend a fortune in dog food for those mooses <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/stars.gif" alt="Stars" title="stars" />
I am very jealous, I wish i had a dog again, it's been oh......22 years or so.

The black cat looks like mine, not just the color, it's something in the angle of the picture, ti could be 'Jack'.

I'm soooo not a cat person, but i inherited him from my step father in 2000, he thinks he's a dog so it's ok. No litter box here!

No idea which one is the best watch dog, but how could anyone ever sneak up on you with them? why would they even try. Peace
I'm much more of a cat person myself. I love all kinds of animals, but I resonate with cats.

Eva is in LOVE with Mr. T. The first night she spent here I heard a knock at the door first thing the next morning. I opened the door and Mr. T had stolen and then delivered a very large dog toy for her.

And speaking of T, I don't think I told this story yet. We were out of money and the cats were screaming at us for food. My son said "Screw you guys, go hunt for your own food!" The next morning I found that Mr. T had stolen an entire five pound bag of dry cat food, dragged it all the way home, up the stairs, and left it on the back porch in front of the kitchen door to prove that he in fact was capable of hunting for his own food, Thank You Very Much! He's awesome. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/wub.gif" alt="Wub" title="wub" />
Applause Yak , then shrieked and ran!

It might have been a little cruel, but she was quite, quite demanding and it was way past funny.

She is a female, 10 year old version of me, so I figured she'd learn this way, it might work. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/whistle.gif" alt="Whistle" title="whistle" />

That is an awesome story, I can't even get Jack to catch the mice anymore when it gets cold and they come in from the fields. I have had to resort to traps.

Speaking of which my poor 10 year old might never "insist" on knowing what adults are talking about again after her experience the other day when she saw a mouse in a trap for the first time.

She kept insisting on knowing what we were talking about as I made breakfast. On a small stool at the entrance from the kitchen to the dinning room was the mouse in the trap, it was NOT a humane trap.

She went back and forth from me to her grandmother, my mother, demanding to know what it was we were talking about in guarded terms that she "hadn't even seen yet".

So I said, turn around. She did, but didn't see it, it was about a foot or so in front of her but directly below.

I said "look down". She did.

She turned very white, then very green Whistle

Definitly up front, and by that time/age, they should realize small things die, it may be best to shield from some things, but killing basic pests I dont think are one of them. I remember when I was really young, younger then her, we had a rat problem at my house(which we dont live at anymore) and would constantly get them in traps, the dog would get them ever now and then too. That really does remind me, one of the first things I was interested in knowing how it worked, the mouse/rat trap. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/rofl.gif" alt="Rofl" title="rofl" />

OMG, that's the best cat story I've heard in years! What brand of catfood did he bring back?
SJ asked:

This is the exact kind of bag that it was. It was torn open on the top and half gone by morning though <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/rofl.gif" alt="Rofl" title="rofl" />

They're actually very heavy. No wimpy squeaky hamburger for his gal. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/wub.gif" alt="Wub" title="wub" />

My little T went from this little blue-eyed baby

To this sleek golden-eyed panther
