I have a one year old black Labrador Retriever named Hawk, who is like a member of the family.
At age 21, I don't want a child, so for now my pup will do. And he's bigger than most little kids anyways.
He ways 70 lbs and is mostly muscle. He pulls me down the street, and that's hard.
And no, he isn't named for the Road Warrior. I was actually watching American Gladiators when I was looking for a name for my puppy that I was gonna get. It was originally gonna be Tank, but luckily the Gladiator named Hawk was on, and I thought it was a cool name for a smart dog.

Got a small brown dog named Nugget. When people ask what kind of dog he is, the only answer I know to give is "brown"! He's a very friendly dog who loves to tear stuff up. I buy him cheap toys at the Dollar Tree, and he has a great time destroying them.
I usually let him sleep inside at night, and put him out early in the morning. He's got this thing where he just has to carry something out with him. As soon as I come in, he knows he's going outside and will grab something. Usually it's his rawhide chew or some leftover piece of the latest toy he's mangled, but one morning I looked down as we were going outside and he had an onion in his mouth!
I have a Pomeranian named Rogue. He is very well-trained and the smartest dog I've ever encountered, and I've seen lots (we used to breed dogs). He is 8 years old and even though his arthritis is starting to slow him down, he keeps me worn out.

On the subject of my dog, he just got lose from me tonight, and ran me around town, until another bunch of dogs started barking at me, and then, when I thought I'd lost him, he came back out of nowhere to stand in front of me against the other dogs. Go figure. Guess he is really loyal.
Thats terrible! I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. Those little rats are good at getting away from you though. Mine is SO well-trained but every once in awhile he'll get the wandering eye and take off. I keep him on a leash here because I live so far out in the woods. There are bears, cougars, wolves and all kinds of animules that would LOVE to see him strutting around unchaperoned. He still occasionally makes me trust him and I'll let my guard down, off he goes.
Sorry your beloved pet got away from you and things happened the way they did.
