Both my dogs are purebred "Louisiana Catahoula Leopard" - they are technically a cur, but are a registered breed. They are not agressive dogs, but are VERY assertive, the owner better be the Alpha in the house.

They are for hunting:

Better scenting than a bloodhound
Webbed feet for swimming
Can and will climb trees to go after prey

(I have a snapshot of one of Dixie's relatives 15 foot up in a tree at the field trials)


They are also for herding:

They are known for herding wild boar, but are just as happy with cattle, horses, sheep, people, etc.

When you buy one they tell you it must be exercised HARD daily or it will eat your house - TRUE! Both my dogs get plenty of exercise, and yet my older dog has literally eaten a lawnmower and the sub floor of my house. Dixie has been eating a pine tree with her baby teeth.

The cats are a feral colony we have been feeding and tending since the year 2000. We trap/spay/neutered them and then released them back into their territory. Without all the kittens the colony has dwindled down to just what you see in the pics (thank goodness!) - the one inside was a kitten from the matriarch's second litter.

My one year old dog Cracker Jax:

THE Bocephus Possom - If you say he can't, he damn sure will!

Momma is the most feral of all the remaining colony

Smokey - she prefers living with the dogs

Goku. He looks small in the pic, but he's not!

LOL, you have a horde like I do. tongue.gif They're all adorable. Is Dixie a pit/pit mix? I love to see responsible owners with those breeds (I've met enough irresponsible owners [including the psycho whose pit attacked my Care Bear] to understand why they have a reputation...which is why I love it when good owners show people that it's not the dog, it's the owner, who decides whether the animal is "good" or "bad"...and the same with Rotts). As for the cats...well, don't they just now they're king/queen of the world? Does Cracker Jax have rott or doberman in him, btw? (I think you told me before, but alas, I haven't had my morning coffee yet, so the memory has no chance... tongue.gif )


Here's my furry pack, starting with the Muffin (who is a mutt...a cross of English Pointer [thus the majority of his markings], black lab and Rottweiler)
Mike/Mr. "Muffin":

IPB Image

Muffin at a parade (he's "dressed" as a cow...I figured he had the fur for it, so I would just add a cowbell, LOL):

IPB Image

Muffin at Halloween:

IPB Image

At the campground (the rope collar is a result of some silly pooch seeing a chipmunk run by the campsite, and taking off after it at top speed...and snapping his collar when he reached the end of his line tongue.gif). Note the docked tail...the crazy backyard breeder that he was rescued from was planning to sell parts of his litter as purebred rotts because half of the litter had rott markings, and must have been hoping he'd "grow into" rott markings so they could sell him too:

IPB Image

Julia/"Care Bear"...I got her last year so Muffin (who I got as a pup) would have a friend, but she's actually older than him:

IPB Image

Wearing her Christmas scarf:
IPB Image

She's a total sweetheart...when I got her, she was 5 years old and had no idea what a toy was, would duck when hands and feet came near her, etc. To this day, if she goes on a tie-out cable, she starts hyper ventilating and whimpering and shaking. :-\ She still loves people, though (dogs' capacity for forgiveness is amazing). She's also very smart, and has done really well in obedience and agility training...I'm planning to show her this February.

As for the felines, this is Zima:

IPB Image

Don't let the innocent face fool you...this cat is anything but. wink.gif She was the single most troublesome kitten I have ever heard of, much less dealt with. She chewed through a maple syrup bottle in the cupboard (THAT was a fun mess...), got her lower jaw stuck inside her collar as she tried to chew it off (the one time I tried to fit a collar to her...), ate every house plant I owned, chewed on my shoes and chewed a hole through one of my chairs when she was teething, worships the big cat to the point of driving him out of his mind, etc., etc. Still, she's my baby. tongue.gif

This is more like her on the average day:

IPB Image

wink.gif

This is Snookie, the oldest of them all (the one Zima tortures/worships); he's almost 10 now:

IPB Image

And this is Dusty, who is Muffin's age (his mother, coincidentally, was a stray who lived at my Mom's placec...she sort of "adopted" Muffin when I got him as a pup [he was in a very bad way, starved to the point where he couldn't stand up even to eat, etc.]...to this day, Muffin loves the cats and will defend them no matter what). This cat is almost as bad as Zima...his favorite trick is finding a bag of marshmallows in the cupboard, pulling it out onto the living room carpet, and leaving the carpet covered in marshmallows (seriously...):

"Please hear me out" is my fave, but "Ahhh delicious" could be a professional pic, really great photography!

This is a little pic of my dogs. Lottie the Sporting Lucas terrier (White dog on the right) and Maisie the Cairn terrier (Ninja-like black dog on the left)

http://s743.photobucket.com/albums/xx72/ha...=Picture014.jpg

And that's the cat, Florrie. If your wondering what she is getting attacked by, it's the belt from a dressing gown.

http://s743.photobucket.com/albums/xx72/ha...=Picture030.jpg

This is the cat again. She is in an empty fish tank on my windowsill which doubles as a greenhouse. (The fish tank is adorned with stickers of various creatures such as the frog and some bugs).

The cat, embarrassed by your flattering comments, retreated into the 'Fortress of Solitude' A.K.A My shirt drawer.

http://s743.photobucket.com/albums/xx72/ha...nt=DSC00155.jpg

But never fear, Florrie soon found some bravery and went for a nap on my mum's bed.

http://s743.photobucket.com/albums/xx72/ha...nt=DSC00147.jpg

Meanwhile, Lottie waited for someone do drop some food. (Yes, that is sand on her nose.) tongue.gif

I'm still torn between the aquarium and the bathrobe tie pics of Florrie as my faves. Lottie is a very cute dog, but poor Maisie is not getting the coverage here! Is she camera shy? Lol.

biggrin.gif yeah. It's not that Maisie is camera shy, her dark colour in my dark house with dark floors make it nearly impossible to get a picture of her. I did have a pic of her with really long hair but I can't find it...

found it!! Maisie with long hair, watching the sunset.

http://s743.photobucket.com/albums/xx72/ha...rent=maisie.jpg

This is a little pic of both dogs, they are watching my hens on the lawn.

http://s743.photobucket.com/albums/xx72/ha...nt=DSC00152.jpg

Big smile!

I'll try and get more pics of suzie, she's feeling a bit under the weather after a...run-in...with both dogs last week, it left the hefty hen a bit shaken (and with several feathers missing).

I just ran outside, phone in hand, to get these pictures.

Suzie in her nest, she looks good but her whole underside is bald. sad.gif

http://s743.photobucket.com/albums/xx72/ha...nt=DSC00135.jpg

Suzie's housemate Sarah. We found her in our garden about two months ago looking very hungry and her feet were suffering from fungal infection. She has lived with us ever since and has given us a few eggs as rent. biggrin.gif
