This is Ralph. He is a 3 "leged" Boston Terier. He was hit by a car when he was a puppy so he had to get on of his back legs amputated. He hets around great though. He can keep up with any other dog with out a problem. He is very ruff when he plays so he has to play with bigger dogs. He used to love playing with my aunt and uncle's Irish Wolf Hounds but, they are now dead so he has to play with my aunt and uncle's new dogs, wich is a 1 year old Golden Recheiver and a 5 month old Irish Wolf Hound. Ralph doesn't come plowing though becouse he is small and he likes to stand up and look out the windo so, he flies all through the cab when I'm plowing. He's a good fog though.

(If it was up to me he wouldn't be aloud on the furnature. But my Mom lets him so, I can't say any thing.)

Here's Fuzzy Buddy, these shots are from a late storm we had in April of 09. He was already starting to blow out his coat...he fills 3 shop vacs at the groomer. He's a great sport while plowing and his reward is getting to climb the piles when we're done.

supposedly hypoalergenic and non-shedding.

I have terrible allergies and I have no problems with him. Shocking.

Although he doesnt lose his coat via shedding, he still leaves quite a bit of hair laying around. But hey, he's a dog!

Thanks Pusher Man, he's a rescue and had pretty rough start in this world w/ the abuse he sustained and had to train out of him, and took a lot to build his self confidence. Now he's just an amazing companion.

Quick story...Last year my mom was hospitalized for about 6 months, back and forth from hospitals to nursing care facilities...anyway, the care facilities would allow me to bring him in to visit, which was really cool. What I didn't anticipate was all the attention the dog would get from other patients as well as staff members, and I kept getting requests to bring him back.

Anyway, there was one elderly gentleman who asked if he could visit w/ Bo, my dog. I said of course and the nurse wheeled him out for a visit. Bo gave the guy a kiss, and his eyes began to tear up. He smiled, laughed and talked up a storm for over an hour. Before I noticed the entire staff was standing just around the corner peaking and talking about us, as if they couldn't believe what was happening. Later after the visit, the nurse informed me that it was the first time the man had spoken to anyone. Probably about the most humbling experience of my life, and a new respect for what these fine companions are capable of accomplishing.

I've always felt that dogs and other animals have a 6th sense. After the first visit, I would just let Bo lead me to whomever he wanted to visit, and he always knew where to go. He did things for people that I could never do. He knocked down the mental wall barriers that some had built for who knows how long, you could read it in their faces.

If anyone has a dog w/ reasonable manners and is gentle, I strongly recommend giving it a try. It will have an impact on your own life.
