ETA: I snapped a pic of Dakhota when he was being lazy--a rare moment for him. Thought it was cute. He's grown alot since the previous pics, as they were taken 6 months ago.

I know, right? He's a good 60 pounds now. Makes for a big lap dog. I got him at a year, so I missed out on the puppy stage. :/

Emma's a beauty!

Thanks. She only gets excited when I bring her home a bone or my brother-in-law comes over. She sees him and she knows it's play time! Other than that she stays in that one corner of the couch. My snoop weighs 65 so I get it totally. The big butter ball. Cool thing is he kept his puppy hair texture. I love it, so soft and furry. And he loves his momma, is yours a protector too? My aussie won't let any man near me unless he is beside me or in my lap. He would never bite I don't think but he lets them know he is there.

Haha. Mine gets excited when he sees the frisbee or tennis ball come out--he takes off like a shot after them. Yep-- very protective. Other than my grandpa and dad, he does not like men. Ha. The UPS guy stopped by the other day while I was outside, Dakhota ran over, stood right in front of me and growled at him...the guy was like, "Whoa, he's protective for such a small dog." Lol

Yea, same thing happened when a bunch of guys came out to work on my septic system. Honestly I felt totally safe by myself with my boy beside me. My fiance' loved it. The dog hates him but he loves I always have someone here to protect me when I am alone. I'm a student so therefore I am home a lot. I'm good though. I will sick my killer betta on them too HAHA

Same here-- go on a walk with him, I know I'm safe. I live out in the middle of nowhere, so it gets creepy when the folks go somewhere. :/ Hey, I think bettas might do the trick to scare em off. JK. Mines beyond territorial. Flares when I feed him...flares when I walk by...flares when I take pics. Who woulda figured? Last one I had at 12 was more passive.

My angry boy is Red. Captain blew his first bubblenest and since then he's had a tude too, he's protecting like crazy. My new boy charlie is timid right now though I am sure he will snap out of it. He's in his new home so he still jumpy, not used to the light clicking on and off.

Haha. It makes for a more interesting betta when they've got a tude. The dog gets an attitude when he's not fed right on schedule. He'll sit by his bowl and glare at me like, "Hello, lady, I am over here."
