Dogs in my life

Thought I would share some pics with you guys of some significant dogs that have been in my life (past and present).

This is me and my BF's American Bulldogs - Tank and Marina (RIP). Both dogs, especially Marina kept me safe when I lived with them for 3 months. Marina would never let anyone get close to me unless I commanded her to tolerate them.

Oceano (my dog) looking for squirrels with Dasha the Caucasian Ovcharka and Argo the Rottweiler who are owned by close friends of mine

The dogs all look lovely - so you sled?? I used to have friends who did sledding in Montreal many many years ago. I hope it goes well. The dogs all look so happy and well taken care of - that's nice.

Dog Dancer, yes I have been competitive for 4 years now, this season will be my 5th.

Cindy, Thanks!

Rainbow, I'm not sure if it is White Water or White River or something along those lines (I will have to ask my mentor again) but it was an amazing kennel that produced some phenominal racing-line Siberian Huskies. A few years ago they shut down their kennel and sold all the dogs. My mentor got Wally and is loving this line of Siberians. he tried to breed Wally but she would not take. He even at one point had the stud dog of his choice living in the same kennel has her during ovulation and after ovulation for I believe 2 weeks but she still didnt take and now is too old to have puppies anyways. We are now looking for any dogs from that line who may still be around or their offspring.
