    Seeing as I'm sure we have a boat load of dog lovers on this board, why not post some snaps of your pampered pooches?

    Posting rules: no Luton fans allowed, because owning a dog as a Luton fan is obviously animal abuse and we're not down with that around these parts.

    To kick us off...here is Henry, our new Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

    He wanted to play with his dragon, which wasn't out of the toy box at the time...so decided to go and help himself.

    As the thread’s sponsor it would be remiss of me not to formally introduce Misty (left) and Sooty (right). Don’t shoot the messenger re the names - in a moment of weakness we let the children (who were only 7 and 5 when we got Sooty) choose them.

    That's a great pic! Really captured the details (hair, grass etc). :)

    My friend's dog is one they brought over from Greece in a similar way. Despite its dodgy start in life, the dog has the sweetest temperament.

    Spud is a great dog also with a brilliant temperament.
    But they never forget their puppyhood!
    She still cowers from a raised voice, and she’s now 14.

    This is Bella. One of the thickest ****heads you’ve ever met but she’s got a heart of gold and she’ll cuddle the sh*t out of you if you give her the chance. Rescued her, we think she’s a boxer/staffy but it’s a mystery. One of a kind.... simultaneously stupid and smart... she can do rollover like nobody’s business.

    Does she have a Lester accent?

    We got her in Derby actually so I guess she was born and spent the first year of her life there. I don’t hold it against her.

    Brother in law’s Lab pup. Took this the same day as the last one. They’d met for the first time and they were knackered from playing. He’s called Finn and he doesn’t respect boundaries yet, he had an entire cheesecake off the dinner table that day.

    I don’t know why the pics are rotated. Soz.

    Freddie the border collie in my avatar died 2 years ago but I don't want to change the picture.
    New dog looked like a fox cub when he was a pup and "Cub" stuck for a name...

    This is Debs and Moz. Moz is only four but has gone very prematurely gray, he started going gray when he was two. Debs was a lockdown purchase, after spending so much time with Moz due to the lockdown, anytime I did leave him he became distraught even though previously he’d tolerated being left without any issues. I had to pop out for a couple of hours once (After I’d been WFH for a good month or so) and my next door neighbour messaged me to check everything was ok as he’d been howling the whole time, so along came Debs. Ironically I’ve not really had to leave either of them since.

    If you’re so inclined you can get DNA tests for dogs that will tell you exactly what they’re made up of. My mum, a dog nut who always has at least three on the go did it for one of her rescues. Oddly despite being quite a large dog she is a quarter Chinese crested apparently.

    I think we might do that. She has to be half Boxer with her stupid, hangy face, the shape of her torso and the way she bounces around. She bloody adores Staffies when she’ll ignore most other dogs so that’s a guess on my part.

    Just back from Greece - a lot of strays about, all of which seemed very good tempered, though a lot of them were in a state. There was a pedestrianised bit of Thessaloniki where a few tended to hang out and they had all worked out how to cross the main roads - sitting and waiting for the green man at the lights. It was all really sad, especially when you saw them interact with dogs on leads - all fine, but if the dog on the lead showed any aggression, the stray was terrified and moved away immediately.

    Cavaliers are just the best, me and the fiancee desperately wanted a pet but couldn't commit to being at home enough for a dog so went with a cat instead. At some point down the line when circumstances have changed we're definitely going to get a dog as well and I think we've both agreed that it'll be a Cavalier King Charles
