I have a Dobermann. My very best friend. I spent more hours per day with her than with anything else (inclusive Mint).

People with dogs are lucky ones. I don't owe one . But I go out fo walks , and pet stray dogs. They love me unconditionally, most humans will never do that.

We used to, but after having to euthanize two very sick dogs (not at the same time) we no longer have any. Can't go through that again.

Jerry, I feel with you. I had this situation 5 years ago and the new Dobermann was the only way to get me out of my depression. She claimed my attention from the first day and did not give me much time for my sorrow. I know, that this situation will reoccur in some years and I try, not to think about it. But until this inevitable day will come she makes me happy every day - one thing I do not want to miss. And I see, that she feels happy also on my side. So a clear case of a win-win situation.

We have two dogs, a mild-mannered boxer-mix from a dog pound and a kinda crazy border-collie(?) mix we found outside the Navajo reservation. We're retired and they provide an excuse to get out and walk every day while the dogs run loose in the semi-wilds.

I have always had at least one dog...

My current companion is a female Border Collie / Labrador mix that is 13 years old and reaching her end days. When she goes I will get another dog. That is just the way I am.

When I was a kid we did not have dogs at our house.

When I turned 19 and had my own place things changed... For the past 41 years I have always had dogs.

I've had a variety of dogs over the years - Miniature longhaired Dachshund, Standard Longhared Dachshund, Smithfield, Huntaway (NZ breed), Border Collie. Border Colllie/English Setter X, Italian Spinone.

Attached is a picture of Jordan and Albert (Italian Spinone) Jordan is 10 years old. Albert died in Auguest 2011 at the age of 13.

It is always heartbreaking when a dog dies. I cry buckets of tears and feel that life will never be the same again. Fortunately, a new dog eventually wins your heart.

Been around Dogs for over 60 years - had Dogs myself (rather than my parents having Dogs) for over 40 years. All, apart from the last one, have been Rescue Dogs... either taken from cruel owners or found abandoned. All, apart from the last one, lived long (12 years or more) and happy lives.

My last Dog was a Labrador - highly intelligent, interested and curious about everything around him (would follow a Spider around the room, but never harm one). He was always pleased to welcome any living thing, from an Insect to a Human. Useless as a Guard Dog, brilliant as a friend. He died from illness before he was 6 years old. Caring for him while he was ill broke our hearts... my wife and I can't go through that again. Watching him suffer while being diagnosed and treated, and being unable to do anything, was the worst time of my life. That was 9 years ago, but I'm holding back tears while typing this now... will seem stupid to all but other Dog lovers.

We have two Shetland Sheepdogs - a 10 year old girl that we bred ourselves (Sophie), and a 3 year old re-homed boy (Anton).

We couldn't decide what kind of dog to get. Then one day my parents heard an old cowboy song that said, "Get a long little doggie," so they got a dachshund.

Doberman here as well. Classified as red even though she is a chestnut color. At 11 years old now her muzzle is turning gray.

I had Dobies for many years, but now live in a small house with a smaller yard.
So I now have a Westie that thinks she is a Dobermann....r

:lol:

Question into the round: Do you have - in other countries - to pay a dog tax and are you legally forced to have a liability insurance for the dog?

Here in Germany I have to pay an annual tax of 120 € (but that is different from city to city and differ for different dog races) and for big dogs (like m Dobermannn) I have to have an insurance. I would be interested to know about this as well from other European countries and also from countries outside Europe.

EDIT: If you answer on this, please say also, in which country you're living, otherwise it does not make sense to me.

Here in the states we have a license for dogs issued by the county you live in. This year it's 16.00 us.

Some areas here in the states require insurance on aggressive dogs such as pit bull terriers.
They also require total control over the dog. Kennels made of chain link, locking gates,etc.
Most of the owners of the pit bulls don't know, or choose to ignore the law until there is a
dog bite incident and the dog usually is put down.....r
