    Got this idea from a gun website thats threads often crumble into juvenile antics, thought we should try it here.

    Post your battle buddy (you know, best buddy dog, no cats and dogs under 30lbs when full grown are large cats).

    This is Bailey, my Boxweiler, have had her since 2001 when she was a little puppy. This picture is from February '03.

    Here is Bailey in Feb '06, the year we were in Pennsylvania.

    This is Bailey this summer. She is 13 now, retired in dog years. Just like me, she moves slower, has blown disks in her back and arthritis. She used to do 10k with me daily, now she can't make it much over 2 miles. She has been my faithful battle buddy for years.

    4 year old daughter puts her in pink collars, don't blame me.

    Here's mine:

    He's a fully intact 8 y/o sire. 108 lb Chocolate Lab. Bought him from a "breeder" in a Walmart parking lot. My Veterinarian asked me if I was gonna "hunt him." No, said I would keep him. Two years of tough puppy love -- chewing, digging, barking, howling, yelping, and general mayhem.

    He got loose on Christmas Eve his first year and did not come home till early morning. Raided the neighborhood Christmas decorations and brought home strings of lights, extension cords, wreaths, and yard displays.

    He's got the strength to dig a "proper" fighting position in my vegetable garden. He is my battle buddy.

    Thanks Charlie. She's been in my life longer than my wife.

    He got loose on Christmas Eve his first year and did not come home till early morning. Raided the neighborhood Christmas decorations and brought home strings of lights, extension cords, wreaths, and yard displays.

    Awesome story! And that is one serious face on that Lab.

    Rowdy was the best dog I ever had. I've seen him catch rabbits. He was very protective and a good judge of character. He growled at a new neighbor once from 60 yards away. Found out later that he had 17 convictions for offenses such as possession with the intent to sell and 2 counts of assault and battery on his ex-wife and a girlfriend. He started trouble with some neighbors and 16 neighbors testified against him in civil court. He moved pretty quick. I lost him to a brain tumor 3 years ago.

    Pork chop is a pitbull/damation mix. I don't have a recent picture, but he weighs 75lbs now and he is 11 months old. Here he is at 5 months for the Independence Day Neighborhood Party.

    With out being a downer .. the story on Rowdy above was hard to read, and guessing their will be more of 'those'.. my best friend lost his 'Angel' told him at the time that she'd meet him at the gate and welcome him into heaven.. Least that's how I see it working.. and hope so.. so for all the sad stories.. wonderful endings..

    My first battle buddy 'Ares'

    Had him for 2 weeks now and can't imagine being without him.
    He is a 4 month old pure bred German Shepherd.

    I'm covered in scratches from playing hours of tug of ear and fetch and constantly pulling socks out his mouth but wouldn't have it any other way.

    Had to give Layla up when I came to the oilfield but she was my constant companion for 3yrs. She never listened didn't have the time or want to needed to make her obedient. But she sure was protective of me.
