My first was Daniel the spaniel (welsh springer) that my parents took my brother and i to choose, he has a crazy boy so much fun when we were kids!

Then i left home and moved to cornwall and got Stussy a lurcher as a puppy, bringing up a pup whilst living in a camper was interesting to say the least, she was allways compleatly mad up until her last week when we had to say bye 2 years ago :(
When stussy was about 2 we got paige our collie x we lost this year a rescue and once early problems settled turned into the best dog we could have wished for B)
Then came tara a belgian shepherd we lost her about 5 years back, again a rescue and so very nervous at first but was a great huggy bear and mrs T very much reminds me of her
We also had a deerhound x boy about 8 years ago from a rescue and that lasted about a month as he kept attacking our girls and running off to the house of a local labrador boy he met on walks - i think he was in love :laugh: anyway the couple with the lab fell in love with him and frombeing a nightmare at our house turned into an angel, he obviously was not a fan of ladies!! :laugh: i still see him on occassion pottering about altho he now has a new boyfriend :laugh:

Bella and willow the beddy whippet pups arrived in the last couple of years ( i still call them pups even though they are 1 and 1 and a half! ) and then the lovely mrs T came from rescue this year

I would soooo love another deerhound, but now mrs T likes sleeping on the bed i think my oh may leave home if i try for another :laugh:

Our first dog was a West Highland Terrier and the second a little Poodle.(Sorry, I have not digital pictures from this dogs)

The next dogs was 2 Standard Poodles and a Miniature Poodle.The Standard Poodles died 2008 and 2009. My absolut favorite Poodle was Lotte.

Hello,

I have an old photo from our first dog, West Highland Terrier - "Terry", scanned.
Sorry for the quality, the picture is over 20 years old.

Best regards
Joerg and Yoki

In my case the first family dogs were Biddy (a Cairn Terrier) and Blythe (a Wire Haired fox Terrier). Biddy was a total escapologist and certainly didn't hold back with the odd bite or two! Blythe though was a sweet natured thing. So here's a picture taken nearly 30 years ago (doesn't time fly when you're having fun) with me, Biddy and Blythe.



I'm the one on the left.

Hello Elise,
This is a very nice picture with you and the Terriers.

Our first dog was a Terrier also.
We had a West Highland White Terrier.

Regards
Joerg and Yoki dh:)

My first dogs were all rescues as my family had a 'rescue only' policy at the time, so a wide variety of strange, sweet and sometimes slightly disturbed canines lived with us for many years in the 60s and 70s :laugh: !
Finally in the 1990s I decided to treat myself to a pedigree and I had been longing for a deerhound after encountering them at Crufts (Olympia) when I was a student in London. Here is my first Deerhound Dougal (Aviva Orange Larch), who sadly died only 6 years old of Cardiomyopathy. Flora- right, (Kilbourn Calico) was a youngster in this photo taken on the Isle of Skye where we go on annual holidays, she lived till 10 years old but broke my heart when she died as I totally adored her. Rufus the lurcher was an RSPCA rescue and lived to 17 years old - thats the beauty of mutts for you! I cant live without deerhounds these days, they are completely addictive.

This is our first dog, we called her Dizzy, which suited her very well.......very expressive face. We both loved her.
The baby is our first Son.
