    Figured that this would be a good thread to encourage some discussion!

    This is my dog Mieko, he is a black and tan shiba inu. 4 years old. Cleans himself like a cat, never had to be house broken, and can be really stubborn :) Favorite toy is the classic tennis ball and partially deflated basket balls.

    Oh, cute! And I am not a dog person. That is pretty cool Braden! How did you pick the breed?

    Awesome dog! We looked at getting one of them, but settled, in a good way for a Westie instead. She was born last month, and we get to visit this Saturday for the first time!

    She is one of these four

    Wanted an Akita, didn't want the size. Plus, he's JDM as heck ;)

    Went for a visit today. They're 6 weeks old today. She found me, made herself comfy and watched...

    Honestly, if she had a way to talk to me, and asked me to push someone down the stairs, or rob a bank, I probably would have...

    Congrats Greg! It was so much fun when my wife and I got to see our puppy growing up.

    Here is my Weimaraner 'Sage'. She is over 4 years old now, around 26" at the shoulders and 75lb.
    I picked her up to be a companion and my bird spotting dog.

    I have 3 in total all German shepherds
    The mother ( not in pic ) is a white shepherd, named Princess.
    Ill take a new one tomorrow if all 3 will sit still for a minute. It's pretty hot in Ontario right now.
    I'm not complaining, I'm dry still. Other aren't so lucky.

    All super cute dogs guys.

    Oh man makes me wanna get another dog seeing the pictures. The family dog is back in Alberta at my parents. But I won't get a dog as I own a condo, not a place for a dog to live... In the future though!

    Same, they were in our list of dogs, but we just don't have the space for a large dog. It wouldn't be fair to them. So c'mon, pictures!

    Left is Junior, middle Princess, right Diesel.
    Fun fact: Diesel and Princess made Jr.(full name Diesel jr.)
    Princess had 2 litters, the first was 3 and we kept jr. and the second was 7.
    We took a break and if we breed again it will be with a new stud.
    It will be and all- white litter. ( no puns about that plz)
    So yea that's my dogs.
