Default Release the hounds....

Got her from a pound. I'm naming her Willie, after my favorite BBQ restaraunt Uncle Willie's. She's some kind of beagle/english setter mix. First thing she did when I got her home tonight was take whiz on my living room rug. El Gato isn't quite sure what to think yet...

Good lookin' dog!

Kudos on the pound thing. I'm not a zealot on it, but if it's an option, by all means get one if you can.

I'd take a dog from a pound every day over a breeders dog.

We adopted our pitbul a year ago from the animal shelter in Austin....everyone is afraid of her but she's the sweetest dog ever

Our other dog found us about 6mo ago she's a cutie but we've got no idea what kinda dog she is.....we've asked 2 vets with no luck.....doesn't matter though...she's cute

Great looking dog!

We adopted out beast from a shelter, too. He blessed our house with a HUGE pile of liquid poo very soon after coming home (he had some kind of bug). MAN, I wish he would get along with the cats, instead of lusting after them like they are some kind of feline bacon.

MmmmMmm...feline bacon....garrrlrlll...

My wife (who bought the dog before she was my wife) refused to crate train. Since we've owned the dog, she's destroyed several sets of carpet, rugs, etc.

She kinda looks like the dog from The Mask.

Cute dog!

She needs to do some reading. Dogs LIKE their crates. They're den animals, they like being in dark, closed environments. Troy used to race into his crate when it was bedtime (of course, he knew he was getting a piece of cheese when he did ).

Yup, crating them is the only way. Been around dogs all my life. Growing up, my parents never crated. Actually thought it was "cruel".

Being a homeowner for 15 years and wanting dogs, started educating myself a bit more and learned about the "den."

Have done it with all my dogs. They love their dens and are kenneled up when no one is home. When we get home and let them out, we leave their doors open. Often times, the dogs retreat back to their "den" even when they have the option of not being there.

BTW...nice looking pup in the pic!
