Lakeland Terrier

<< < (2/5) > >>

Have you looked at Bedlingtons, Alf? They're lovely, and maybe a bit easier than a Lakeland.

We went to Oxford to buy one once, but she was as much a Lakeland as I'm Thora Hird. We knew something was dodgy when the "breeder" opened the door and she had a row of dots and "cut here" tattoed on her neck. Her kids were sitting round a table writing to their dad in prison, and under the table was the youngest, poorliest pup I've ever seen, and no other pups or the parents to be seen. We bought her because we felt so sorry for her (she pooed out a pile of worms bigger than herself a couple of days later.) We called her Levi and she grew up to look something like a Patterdale, and  was probably the worst dog we've ever had. As soon as she found her feet she nearly pulled the head off one of our dachshunds, and her favourite foods were wasps and slugs. She was a pain in the arse.

Anyhoo! I hope you find the pug..I mean PUP of your dreams!!

Yikes thanks but, where's the vomiting emoticon?!   @)(++(*  You've put me clean off the idea tbh.  Perhaps we'll stick with a tortoise (unless you have any horror stories about them too....?)

They look a bit poncey to me, sorry.  I don't want anything I have to shampoo and blow dry on a regular basis....

Our youngest son has a miniture schnauzer. He is a lovely dog and is hypoallergenic  ?{)(** , a necessity because our grand daughter has asthma.

I say lovely, while admitting I am not a dog person, don't like them at all.  In fact, scared stiff of them but can sit happily in their home because I know him.

Golden retriever or labrador better? Visit a dog rescue centre and they'll advise you and show you some real dogs too. You might just 'click' with one of theirs.
