    What beautiful eyes, such a lovely dog who I'm sure was a big part of your family.

    I'm so sorry for your loss!

    Look at those big eyes that stare sweetly at you. He must have been very loyal and faithful. Sorry about the loss. My thoughts are with you.

    Got a Catahoula who flunked obedience class, but is the best alarm system I ever had.

    Say Hi to my new pal. He's a Maltese/Shih Tzu cross, two and a half years old, that we bought several days ago from a lady who has had a tumour operation behind her eye. Due to further complications, and more hospitalisation, she's had to reluctantly part with him, and was tearful but pleased to let him go to people who will obviously love him.

    His name is Bundy, named I'm told by her after that great Australian icon Bundaberg Rum from Queensland (not sure why, as she was of a perfectly sober and respectable nature:)), but I do agree with her that one hasn't experienced one of life's fulfilling moments until you've had a "Bundy and coke":) We thought of renaming him but he answers so easily to his name so we'll keep it. Being part Maltese he's got a lovely allergen-free coat that doesn't shed, but great moustaches from the Shih Tzu side which I greatly envy;)

    He's well trained, walks beautifully on his leash and absolutely loves car drives. He's a bright little spark with a great sense of humour and playfulness, and loves all humankind (not sure about other dogs as recently demonstrated at the local dog park where he gave as well as he got in a barking competition with a Beagle). Completely useless as a watchdog...if we had a burglary he would not only lick the burglar's hand but also show him where the goods are while holding the torch.

    Because of the previous owners illness his grooming was badly neglected, with an overgrown and badly knotted coat in places, and bad "tear stains" on his face.
    Here are some pictures of Bundy when we brought him home, before he had his "dog grooming salon"lol session today:

    And now Tadaa! after a pampering session of aromatic bath, clipping of coat and nails and a special dinner of left-over roast chicken for his pains from his "dad" (yes I know:)), here's our new pooch!

    So, although I've been a "cat person" for years (my wife is still firmly one;) until our beautiful Russian Blue cat "Boris" passed away), I'm now to my own surprise becoming a "dog person", and ready to provide extra competition to the cat lovers on this forum lol.

    Oh Andrew, he's just gorgeous! And what a great name he has! Bundy!! It's just so Aussie!

    I think every Aussie has had a Bundy and coke at some time in their lives, I know I sure have!

    I bet he rolls on his back for those special tummy rubs too! ;)

    Congrats on the new addition to your family!!

    Thanks leelai, yes he's incredibly into patting, stroking or a feed, whichever comes first:) . And he's been good for us as well. A nice daily walk is just as beneficial for him as it is for me, one motivation for getting a dog. Just to see him spinning around with sheer joy first thing to greet a new morning just makes you appreciate the day. I've started to teach him to bring in the morning paper off the front lawn but, a pocketful of "training cookies" notwithstanding, I think it will be a long drawn out exercise lol

    They really are a wonderful breed....or breeds. ;).

    We have a Maltese/Shih Tzu cross also, a girl Yukie. They are just so energetic but just so loving too!
    Coming home, I always know she'll be at the door to greet me without fail.....you can't help but smile!

    Mine just loves her toys, which we name and we can tell her to go get a certain toy and she knows just which one we want....they are just so intelligent like this.

    Bundy has a wonderful smile on his face too....he's just so adorable and must be loving his new home ;)

    Mmmm....the paper has been a problem for us too....;)

    That's great, I didn't realise you had one too, I'm sure you have a cat. He loves our place and is currently getting to know all the good places for a lie down.
    At the moment as I type this he is opposite my couch in the lounge, not a good picture due to the low lighting:

    What a wonderful dog, Andrew! He sure looks like he appreciates the grooming.

    BTW, in Canada, a Bundy and Coke is called a Dark and Dirty.;)
