Sounds like pugs.  Ours could pretty much care less about other small dogs, but get them around a big dog and they would turn into Cujo.  They didn't care.

Yeah, they're very territorial.  The older one was vicious when she was younger but now can generally play nice with other dogs to the point where if she gets into it with one, it probably isn't her that started it.

The little one bites every dog he gets close to right on the nose and doesn't let go - I dont' know why and he's absolutely not intimidated by dogs of any size or variety - and he only weighs about 18 pounds...  I'm thinking about seeing if I can find a muzzle that would fit him just so I can take him to the park.  But that would ruin his day because all he does is fetch fetch fetch and he wouldn't be able to.  Yet he plays fantastically all day and night with our other dog and my girlfriend's parent's dogs back home... just get him around a dog that he doesn't know and he's a terror.  He's never done anything like that to people though, he's a little angel otherwise.

3 cats(possum 16, Milon 6, Dusty 4), 50 gallon aquarium with 12 fish, 60 Gallon aquarium with 17 fish, 30 gallon aquarium with 19 fish/6 shrimp, 20 gallon aquarium with 6 fish, 2 gallon aquarium with 1 fish, 20 gallon terrarium with 2 lizards, 40 gallon terrarium with 1 lizard, 10 gallon terrarium with 2 poison dart frogs, 10 gallon terrarium with 5 lizards, 2 rats(peanut,patches) in cage, and 1 rabbit(Cocoa) in large enclosure.

Oh, and 4 lizards outside around the house. See them often enough I know who's who. Well, I guess they don't count since they live on the walls and catch their own grub.

Have a significant pet bill monthly :P

But, somehow am able to keep house smelling nice/not like pet store.

Let's see if I have this correct...
3 cats
55 fish
6 shrimp
8 lizards
2 poison dart frogs
2 rats
1 rabbit
plus 4 "outside" lizards

That is, without a doubt, a lot of pets.   :o

Well, I took it out of the context that... a pet is a pet no matter the size. If you care for(responsible to) it's wellfare than I guess that's why I listed those. I guess the outside lizards kind of count? If I don't water the fauna then their prey leaves then the lizards move to another home or back across the street to the desert?

Great pics everyone, always nice to see people's pets, they are all quite cute.  I grew up with dogs my whole life, and my wife and I have had our pet beagle for going on six years now.  He is definitely part of our family, we basically treat him like he was our kid.  He's far too spoiled I'm guessing.  I don't know what we'd do without him though.  I'll have to see if I can get a picture posted sometime.

Wife and I have one pet, and he is all the pets we will ever need.

Our Jack Russell Terrier, Scotty




Took this pic last July down in South Padre Island at a bar/grill.  Forgot to put the Corona bottle in front of him. ;D

Cute dog you have there!  A Corona bottle would have fit in perfect there even for a commercial.

We just added a new member to the family today. She is a little yellow lab and is 8 weeks old right now. We are still thinking of a name for her.
