What kind of dogs have you had through out your lifetime and what were their names. As far as I can remember I started out with 2 King Charles Spaniels Milli and Jester and 2 Japanese chins Sugi and Noah. I had this mixed dog first we found her at a Albertsons parking lot matted and dirty. So we took her home put a found ad in the paper and no one responded so I got to keep her, oh, she was the best. I named her Dutchess. After she passed away from some serious stomach issue. My parents got me a Shih Tzu I named her Ming. Then there was my Yorkie - Ticker My long haired black Chi - Ebony My Dobe - Sir Bogart Gadspy (Bogie) for short Brother and sister Pit/American Bulldog- China and Kessler My first Siberian Husky-Blaze 2nd husky- Samson 3rd husky Zimus and now my mixer Goliath who is a Bull Mastiff/Lab mix
I had a Black lab named Roger. Golden Retriever named Kylie. Terrier mix named Jake. German Shepherd mix named Nathan. Lab/Border Collie mix named Rex. Border Collie named Shadow. Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix named Trooper. Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Golden Retriever mix named Luke. Golden Retriever named Roxanne. Golden Retriever named Kelsey(I have her now). Parson (Jack) Russell Terrier named Jackson(I have him now).

My parents also fostered every type of mutt you can imagine! Usually lab mixes, but we had everything from pits to poodles and everything in between. My favorite was a Basset Hound named Gunther though--i got VERY attached to him :(
Now I have Koda and Harry (both lab/poodle mixes).
A Rat Terrier named Prince. A Rat Terrier named Rusty. A Collie / Golden Retriever mix named Rascal. A Malmute named Bear. A Yellow Lab / Golden Retriever mix named Buffy. A Yellow Lab (most wonderful dog in the world) named Blondie (aka the first Blondie) A Chow / Newfoundland mix named Smokey. A Yellow Lab - my second Blondie. A Yellow Lab - named Jazz. A Yellow Lab - named Sarge. A Yellow Lab - named Dayton. A Chocolate Lab - named Cocoa. A Chocolate Lab (probably the best bloodlines of any dog I have ever had, but a completely physco dog) named Rickey. A Dalmatian named Spotty. A Basset Hound named Elvis. A Basset Hound named Ladie. A long hair Chihuahua named Abby. A red nosed Pit Bull / Shar pei mix named Kesha. A Shih-tzu named Daisy. A Japanese Chin named Tyke.
as a kid, a little shelter mutt puppy named smokey who died of distemper within a week of when we got him. than a shelter mutt who was probably some golden and maybe shepherd. then a shelter mutt cockapoo type. then a golden retriever from a breeder. now a labrador retriever from a breeder, a BC mix from a shelter, and a pug from a breeder. in there were kittens and cats from shelters.
When i was 8 my parents got us a boarder collie mix. We named her Lacy. She was the best dog a kid could ever have. She was a hunter, herder and protecter. She followed us kids where ever we went. My first dog as an adult was a shelter dog. He was a chow mix named kita he died at age 10 at the end of last year. I have also rescued a few and found homes for them. Now we have a boston terrier named Ziggy. A Shepherd named Shelby. And we recently got a Sheltie from some ppl who were not home enough to care for her. Her name is Penny.
Well BluHusky, I guess that is quite a few dogs, but considering the question was throughout your lifetime, I have been around for 46 years, you know. :D
Most of the dogs have lived out their lifes with us and have passed on of old age. A few had doggy diseases like an inoperable tumor and some I either gave away (my 2nd Blondie went to my brother Joe and he still has her) or sold.
I raised Labrador Retrievers from 1980 through 2004, sold my last bitch in August , she now lives in Oklahoma. During that time, I raised some wonderful dogs, many that are still showing around the states and many others that are proven hunters.
Fortunately I am able to keep in contact with almost all of the people that bought puppies from me in the past and get to enjoy those dogs as well. I love Christmas time, because even though I don't have any human grandchildren yet, my doggy grandchildren send me Christmas cards and updated family photos every year.
We also raised a few litters of Basset Hounds, but due to physical disablities, suffered from a fall, I felt unable to care for my crew properly anymore and was forced to re-home them.
Currently I have the Chin, the Shih-tzu and the Dalmatian. My Mom and my son James have the Chihuahua and the Pit Bull mix.
The dogs I can remember us having from my early child hood, and their fates..
Lucky - A mongrel, similar to Bowen in looks. Probably some kind of German shepherd mix. I was too young to remember his fate. I think mom said he got shot and died when we lived in a very rough section of Lousiville KY. I was just a toddler.
Basketball Jones - German Shepherd, named because he could play basketball, and my mom found him as a young pup on a YMCA basketball court or something like that. He went to live with a family in the country when things got rough for my mom and we had to move into some projects or something like that where pets were strictly forbidden, I was about 5 years old. I remember he would shred my Evel Kinevel motorcycle toy hehe
Bruiser - A doberman Pinscher runt of the litter, given to my mom by a co-worker. I was 8 when we got him, and 13 when he died of congestive heart failure as a result of complications of Heartworm.
Sam - A Samoyed. He was given to my mom by another co-worker, at about age 3. Sam got heartworms while we had him and was stolen from our backyard right after we got him back for treatment. The only reason we ever got him back was because he had turned yellow from the effects of recovery, and we suspect the people who 'found' him (stole him more than likely) only returned him because they suspected he would die. Sam was psychotic terrifed of thunderstorms, and would panic if lefta lone in the house during one. One day, he broke out the front storm window during a storm and we never saw him again, despite putting flyers up all over creation.
Christy - An australian shepherd mix that we got on Christmas Eve (thus the name) from the Humane Society. My sister let her escape the house when Christy was about 5 months old, and didn't catch her before she went to work and no one was home. She was very friendly, and we strongly suspect that someone just picked her up and took her home. Again, despite mass advertising, no one returned our calls saying they found her.
April - Another Australian Shepherd mix. April came to us from an old couple who claimed they had found Christy, about a month after her disappearance. Despite her not being the same dog, she was so friendly and nice, Mom took her home anyway. I was about 15 when we got her. When my mom moved to Thailand, April moved to Alabama with me when I was in college. One weekend while I was out of town, she was staying with a friend and got out of his reach onto a main road, where she met her end.
Ashir - Chow and labrador retriever mix I co-owned when living with a boyfriend right after college. He still owns Ashir, he and my husband are friends, and Ashir is now 9 years old.
Bowen - Shepherd mix adopted from humane society
Ramoth - Akita and my first show dog, rescued from a BYB and briefly destined for the show ring. She lives with myMom now in Illinois.
Wow. I havent' thought of some of these dogs in years.. what flashbacks and happya nd sad memories I have now.
