    Got to love dogs that have jobs. They always seem to be the happiest.

    Gotta agree with ThePinkBaron on this one...doesn't sounds like an ideal trail behavior, with the running off on the trail on his own, chasing other stuff/animals/etc.

    MY dog knows to stay on the trail, and can actually lead down the trail and stay on it. He doesn't go off to run or chase other people, animals, etc.

    There's already enough people on the trails that don't like seeing dogs - if you're not careful he could become a liability.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Hi--I'm not at my home computer so I can't upload a photo but I wanted to tell you all about my most wondrous dog.

    Molly She was part golden retriever and I am guessing her dad was a border collie. She could go on 20 mile rides with me and want more.

    Never had any problem with her on the trail--just yell "track" and she'd scoot . And yeah--all it took were a coupla tires bumped into her and she learned. (Of course on our trails I rarely see any other users, hikers or anyone.)

    But she died last May. So i don't have my mountain bike buddy any more. I miss her.
    So love your dogs and give them a big hug. : )

    Some video of me, with Sebastian following and leading. He's one helluva trail dog. He sets a good pace, and we'll get off to the side to let you by if you're starting to go downhill or if he just doesn't want to lead any more. Otherwise, he's always hot on my heels. Had him out with the quad over the weekend too - he hung in there all the way up to 27mph before we started losing him. He's so well behaved to at a year and a half it is unbelievable.

    This is George. He's a puggle (pug/beagle mix) and he'll be two years old this September. He loves to go out on the trail. He learned really quick to stay on the trail and keep pace with me. He only weighs about 25 pounds. here are a couple pics. He was a lobster for Halloween last year.

    Well I have been out of biking for awhile, but I will be starting again within the week. Picking up my new pup Sat morning, hoping I can get him to behave on the trails.

    He is a GSP, and I have plans to have him in the woods quite a bit. Probably gonna help me that he is so small, i can blame my slowness, and frequent stops on the puppy!

    Ok, image not loading...

    I have to say that I'm not crazy about killing innocent animals either, but everyone's got their own rights and their own opinions, and I'll respect that.

    Now, lets continue with more doggie/bike pics!

    stwang5225,

    I hope that you are a vegan.
    The dogs are doing what they were originally meant to do.
    For the record, I don't hunt as it is not my thing, but I do enjoy the fruits of those who do.
    Now back to the original programming, more dogs please.

    Eric

    Back on track...

    This is Lola, she was about 6 months old when we rescued her. Found living in a dumpster and was pretty much wild. Now, with lots of TLC and training she is a great dog.

    Loves running with the trails but it gets too hot for her as the summer progresses.

    here's my Boxer/Lab mix, Max. He's the brindle dog in the first pic. I got him last year from the Humane Society. He was about 2.5y/o at the time. Awesome dog, i love him so much, as does everyone who gets to know him. He's pretty active and loves hiking and the beach. I havent taken him biking yet because he needs to be on leash most areas around here, and he'll pull me right onto my face.

    here he is chillin in my machine shop.

    That is one awfully clean shop. Does it get used? Is that a Bridgeport Surface Grinder on the left? My dog doesn't get to go in the machine shop, too many nasties. She does fine in the wood shop though, although she is no longer black when she leaves.

    That's just after i painted the floor, and he isnt usually allowed in there.
    Shop looks quite a bit different now, got a 3 axis (for now) cnc mill, bridgeport mill, the lathe (pictured), Harig super 612 surface grinder (the one you asked about, and i think they're owned by bridgeport so it may look like one), welder, press, bender, compressor, and a few band saws.
    It deffinately gets used!

    Mine is a Bridgeport/Harig 612, so a similar model. My cnc doesn't have an enclosure so it really makes a mess when the coolant is on. I worry about the dog around it, not to mention stainless chips.

    It's my opinion.
    And just what the heck do you think gun dogs (Retrievers, Pointers, Setters, Spaniels -- including Cocker Spaniels) were bred for? Those same traits that make them some of the most energetic and obedient dogs and awesome family dogs are the same traits that they were bred for hunting.

    And yes, I bird hunt my Golden Retriever regularly. I have more respect for people who hunt for their meat than those who go to a grocery store for theirs. We're paying for conservation efforts directly. We are directly involved in habitat preservation and wildlife management. What have you done other than express your sensitivities?

    Just my opinion, but please donít decry an American institution and family culture that was passed down to me from my grandfather, and to him from his grandfather before that and so on back to 1843.

    That being said, where's the mountain bike?

    Just as I accepted and respected the right to express your opinion and the right to post the pictures that not all of people will like. I have my opinion posted. This is a country that protects the right of expressing opinion freely and publicly.
    Same here, where is the mountain bike?

    snapped some new ones today at the beach. i couldnt get him to sit still for 1 minute. almost 4 hours non stop fetch, running and swimming. he pretty much passed out on the ride home, even with the top down which never happens.
    it's kinda funny because this is the only place where he'd rather play fetch with me than run with other dogs. he also hates water, and will walk way out of his way to avoid a wet spot on the sidewalk. absolutely loves the beach though.

    Woke up this morning to 32 degrees. Perfect temp for my dogs especially my Inuit Dog Max.
    Max had CCL surgery this past winter and didn't get to go backcountry skiing all season.
    This a.m. was his second ride of the season!
    He was so happy


    Both my boys Wilson my wolfdog and Max my Inuit Dog

    We do not make dogs killers . Nature took care of that a looooooong time ago .
    Canis Lupus Familaris = dog or wolf

    My dogs aren't even "hunting dogs" they are sled dogs.

    Make no mistake, I do not "love killing" but I do enjoy a superior source of nutrition in my freezer.

    Wow so many beautiful dogs in this thread!

    Living in the city means I have to leash mine pretty much every where but I take them out all the time. As soon as they hear me grabbing their leashes they go crazy.

    This is Misty with her red toy and happy as all heck


    This is Trinity when she was a pup. I don't have any recent pics here at work so I'll post some later...






    10 months old:

    Thanks! She's a shepherd / Pit mix. She's a little over a year old now and just the most awesome dog ever. I don't know what I'd do without her. My Wife thinks I spoil her too much lol.

    My other dog Misty is 11 years old and still full of life. She's the friendliest dog I have ever seen. Both are super great with children.

    The Pack is Expanding

    Well, we dun did it.

    The final canine addition to our household arrived home yesterday. A 3-4 month old Blue Heeler Mix (with some shepherd?) from the local county rescue. Do you think these ears can hear conversations in the next room? Or maybe conversations from space?

    The wildlife that eats meat never kills others for fun, it's for food and for living!
    Human use the dogs to kill for fun sometimes now days.
    These two are totally different. Do you agree?

    Make no mistake, I do not "love killing" but I do enjoy a superior source of nutrition in my freezer.

    Dog's chase and kill things for "fun" all of the time - my dogs would chase a squirrell after a 12 course meal. Stwang do you even have a dog? If you do, is it a vegan?

    Bud enjoying his freedom on our cart roads he had been doing good with my back all better and me trying to take him out at least once if not twice a week, but yesterday I slipped on some wet steps and really fugged up my back and neck, so I'll be off the bike for a while and he'll suffer sadly

    Sub-adult wolves chase and kill game for the entertainment of it. They have no intentions of eating these kills either.

    Hey PinkBarron,
    That's a damn good looking dog.
    I just got a blue one, 7mos and want to start riding with her. At what age did you start with yours?
    That's funny about the front tire. Mine is all about nipping at feet right now.

    Isis has passion!

    Took a 13 mile ride with her yesterday. She wasn't anxious to go out today, but will be all over it tomorrow!

    The pic on the trail is from yesterday, the other two are at home.

    <edit> Prolly should note I'm told she's a border collie mix. We guess german shepherd dog, but do chime in with opinions!

    Please show me how many sporting dogs kill animals, not to many.

    They are used to retrieved dead/ wounded animals. And most hunters including myself DO eat what we kill, there has been only two instances that I havent ate what Ive killed and its do to disease of the animal.

    Well, I was half right. That is better than usual at least.

    So, getting back on the topic, any idea where I took this photo today?

    When we were showing Nikko, I would bike with him 1.5 miles daily. This is him @ 13 months with his bicycle legs.




    Now he's retired. No more biking, just long walks and chasing the ball.

    Here is my new puppy Layla. She is a black lab mix I think. She is 8 weeks old here (now 9) with her best friend Bageera (bengal cat). She just had her first shot last week. How old are you guys waiting for your dogs to be before taking them out riding with you? My vet told me not to even let her out front until she has had all her shots in a couple months......

    Sonic, to be honest, looks like he might actually have some Pit/Mastif in him. Cute guy though As to how old mine was before I took him out and about.........well I found him when he was about 2-3 months old and took him out right away exercising, but took him to the vet for a check up and then shots. Once you've got a big enough yard I'd be content to let him run around out there, but know that Parvo comes out of the ground AFAIK.

    I'm thinking Pit Bull/Lab mix? 100% cute!

    IMO- You shouldn't take a dog biking until 18-24 months. Especially dogs who maybe prone to joint dis-functions like labs, shepherds, etc....

    # of pages depends on your settings....I see 20 pages, but I have it set for 30 posts per page.....for faster page loads on picture heavy threads like this.

    But....you should be able to see the new posts no matter what the settings. I see 10 from today.

    Sorry, I meant "Free" as in initial cost as a rescure..... (well it was $24.00 or so ...lol) Not sure of the genetic % only that he came from some "breeder" (term used loosely) in Riverside, CA (known to breed hybrids), and his owner was Jailed (hence in a rescue) when he was 1. He was tough to place due to his size and uh.... over enthusiasm having not been trained. When I first met him, he steam rolled at me with excitement and knocked me flat (I'm 6'2" 210). I said "Yep, thats my new dog."

    NICE!

    I got my wolfdog as a rescue too. A friend called me up 3 days after my dog died and said "I have a special boy who needs a special dad." He was being kept in a horse stall.

    My roommate picked him up and brought him home. He was totally out of control, unhealthy and underweight.

    I had my holistic vet give him the once over. Fed him all the raw meat, fish and fat he could eat. Ran him into the ground day after day. In two weeks he was fit, healthy and perfectly off leashed trained.

    Thanks man I knew it could be a serious life changing thing for me if I decided to pick him up, but just couldn't leave him there to be crushed by a car. Plan was that I "might" keep him, but that I would look for a home for him and only keep him if I couldn't find one. After a few attempts and knowing most Bajans and dogs I decided that no one would give him the care - walk/exercise daily, obidience train etc - that he needed and decided to keep him, but man has it meant some serious life changes but after he decided to go for alittle walk about the other night and not return when I called and I had to go search for him, I really realized how much I've come to care for him

    Oh and as for Bathsheba, it's OK My fav trail starts right at Soup Bowl and runs back along the coast about 3.5 miles, giving about a 7 mile there and back - super fun, slow, tech.

    Train the pup and when he/she is old enough mountain biking will surely reduce the crazy factor. A tired dog makes a happy dog

    Hey Matt, sorry for the late reply, I skim this thread for photos most of the time only stopping to read it every now and again.

    Heelers are wonderful dogs, they have the best personality as far as I am concerned they are more human than they are dog. Which can lead them to be troublemakers. Mine enjoys his jobs, he is training for SAR with my husband, and he is made to clean up his toys around the house in the evening (originally how we taught him the "find, and search commands"

    That being said, how well does she listen to you when off a lead? She is likely a lot faster than you and at 7 months she likely is well aware of this, many heelers unless contained one way or another will try to herd their owners when outside (that is the nipping at your heels) You need to nip that in the bud as soon as possible (unless you are training her as a herding dog of course, in which case she will not be of much use to you as a bike partner) Once you have her to the point that you can take off at a sprint, and she will run with you rather than run past you and then try to redirect you, you can start taking her for bike rides with you, I started Ozzy at around 5 months on short trips, he is about the same age as your pup, and goes with us for 25-30 mile rides without missing a beat. The endurance of these dogs is unreal especially considering their size. Just make sure she listens well, get her a bell or a doggy gps, and she should stay right with you the whole time, Heelers love human companionship, so make her your friend!

    Enjoy, if you have any questions on the breed feel free to shoot me a PM.

    Here's Wes (Wesley), but he doesn't come out too often, as his behaviour has issues. He's a 4yr old Staffy/Boxer cross and we got him from a shelter at 4 months old....

    Our's get uber excited at the sight and smell of polyester or lycra. Both rescue mutts. Both definitely passionate about rides...although the little pit is equally passionate about sleeping on soft furniture, and the bad black dog is also passionate about balls and mud.

    I love the mud shot. I used to have a dog that was a master about getting mud all over his body with the most minuscule puddle.

    Here are my two goofball dogs. Marley is a rescued Golden Retriever. Tess is a mutt that we got from the Colorado Prison dog program. They like to go riding with me, but I don't take them very often.

    Here's some more of my dog Sebastian when we were taking a break after a long rocky descent at Cooper's Rock, WV earlier this week. He loves water about as much as he does mountain biking. He's turned into a wonderful trail dog; he'll lead occasionally but knows when to get off to the side to let you by on faster sections. I think he was meant to be a trail dog - his tail is curved to keep it out of the spokes n rotors, obviously.<br />

    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    so many beautiful doggies! this is a great thread

    this is Max (yep, another Maxxie). he's an english staffy crossed with a runt amstaff. he's only 'lil but he has a lot of personality and a huge heart. he's my boy, he makes me smile.

    in australia staffordshire terriers and american staffies get a bad rep. people who don't know about dogs think they're simply pit bulls, which they are not. pit bulls are generally banned here. interestingly, staffordshire terriers are the only dog to be recommended by the british kennel association for children. originally (400 years ago) they were bred for bear and bull (when they ran out of bears) baiting in england; you get a bear and tie it to a stake in the town square, presumably after church on a sunny sunday arvo. then you let a pack of dogs rip it to pieces for 'entertainment'. this was banned in the mid-nineteenth century so they started letting the dogs loose on each other.

    brutal, huh. the thing is though, the handler always had to be able to get a hold of the dog in the middle of a fight, for whatever reason. if the dog ever, once, turned on the handler it was immediately put down. through this selective process the dogs have been bred never to attack humans, though they do have a bit of a thing about other dogs, sometimes...

    anyway, i have to be very careful when i take him with me on rides 'cause a lot of the trails around here are in national parks or near sheep paddocks, and the rangers/farmers often use poison baits against foxes.

    Wink

    Thouhgt I'd throw this updated pic up for the heck of it. Here's Bud and his companion for the last 4 weeks, Kizzy. He's had fun playing with her, but thankfully he can pop into the house when she gets over bearing and steps on him one to many times.

    Hey otherex, what breed is Bentley? Looks like Golden Retriever/Lab. My guy has in some of whatever he has I think

    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    Here's my new Blue Heeler herding a Lab. Great fun fer her, I don't know about the Lab. I've been trail running with her and she hasn't tried o kill me yet.. no biting of heels or running ahead and stopping suddenly. We'll be trying the bike soon.

    maya the shelter dog has a rough life...





    she's a 2-3 year old lab/jack russell terrorist/daschund mix. the smartest, most athletic and physically fearless 30 lbs of dog i've ever met. she goes flying off things at galbraith that her dad and i can't even think about...maybe we'll get a video someday.
