Of course, all that being said I spoil my dog rotten - he sleeps beside my bed on the floor (on a large pillow). Gets walked and brushed and well fed. Will spend 20min at least each day throwing a tennis ball for him or kicking a football. He is a Broder collie and needs a lot of work.

Dogs are pack animals by nature, they need to know who the alpha is and that it is not them.

Cats are not pack animals, but there is the old saying "my dog thinks he's human, my cat thinks he's God".

I'll have to take a picture of my shelty when she wakes up. Since she sleeps 20 hours a day I don't know when that will be. But she knows she's at the bottom, and is also one of the lovingest dogs I've ever had.

Well here is a different one from the usual cats and dogs, want to bring yours over to play?






And doing what he likes best...eating (normally eats frozen/thawed rats & chickens)

Is that a Savannah Monitor? They're quite docile for something so large. I used to have an Iguana that grew to six feet in length, Spot. He was a wicked bastard though. He would whip me with his tail and God forbid he clamped down on you with his jaws. I used to suit up in a military field jacket and wear heavy leather gloves before I would dare handle him.

Actually it is a Salvator Monitor or water monitor, about second in size to a komodo. He is about 7+ feet (tail and all) and about 65+ lbs.

A Savannah actually would fair well in the desert as they are from the Savannah in Africa. We have had two of these and they are very docile as well, our first one you could let out in the yard and he would come back in and back in his cage when he had enough outside and wanted to eat.

He is a beast but "dog" tame, they are very docile if handled regularly, but you have to respect them - I have experienced his teeth by my mistake when he grabbed to much off a plate of food and I tried to take some back as he was going for the gulp down. I could not imagine what damage they could do if they were to attack I barely scraped a finger across his teeth and it was about a 1/4 deep an a couple inches gash...

He was just a pup when we got him:

In the summer (erh - 8 months out of the year) I have what's called kangaroo mice all over my backyard. Making holes, pissing me off and worst off, they attract snakes. Some good snakes, but also rattlers. I got about a 1/2 acre of a 6' high blocked off backyard. He/she would love the snacks running around. Guess they're quick when they need to be eh? I know that wouldn't fly with my wife, but I just love vermin of all styles. Cept for my cat which is a puker and only on the carpet . I'm assuming those don't do well with dogs though either...
