your babies are precious. your pom looks beautiful. i would have never guessed her to be that age. your minpin looks like he would keep you busy. lol i have a rocky too. a frenchy. he is a year and a half. hes laid back. its my 5 month old frenchy pup, tiger lily, that keeps me on my toes. she is mischeivious ! when i take away something she has gotten into, that she is not supposed to have, she runs around me , just out of reach and barks at me. then she takes off to get into something else. i have to watch her like a hawk. lol
Thanks! I know how you feel....I feel your pain....LOL I have always had animals and have been around all types but the minpin really gives me a run for my money.....for example I was cooking on the stove and the phone rang...I turned to answer it, turn back around to stir my sauce....there he stood on top of the oven licking the sauce! Dee
Thanks! This is the minpin I got after son's old girlfriend was going through the "paris" faze and found out what a hand full they are. I joke with my son when we are standing in a pile of something that he has torn up...."Yes you are the father" LOL
thanks yea the think they are 10 ft tall! lol Now tht I am new to this breed... I am not having this done just a question...don't want to make any one angry but I have looked at dogster to kind of compare rocky to other minpins how come some have their ears cropped? Their ears stand up anyway and why was their tails cropped? Now rockys tail is croppped I guess from the breeder when he was born....is it just the way the breed is showed? Just asking.....hmmmmm
In old times there were useful reasons for cropping. Now in the show circuits you see the Min Pin with cropped ears. I do believe I have read that they are starting to accept uncropped ears also. Other people on this board will know more about that.
I do like the look of cropped ears but they are also very cute with uncropped ears. Ours came from the breeder with cropped ears otherwise I could not do it since it is just a cosmetic thing for us.
I do believe that in the future you will see less and less cropped ears.
thanks... I was just wondering because there are some many types. Kind of like Dobi's I saw some with out the ears cropped. My min ears stand up...but we do laugh when he first wakes up his ears are down it is like his ears have to wake up too! LOL Dee
I see you did a Great job posting pictures! Such a nice looking bunch of furry crittters you have there! One funny thing about little dogs..they seem to mutiply in your home once you discover how cute and funny they are. we only have 1 but hubby has fell so in love with him , he's already talking about getting an addition!LOL!
Thanks! yeah I feel like doc dolittle some times 4 cats and two dogs....And of course they all started as not my...... All the cats are resuces and the pom well from a breeder.. that I just had to get away her from sad topic...and the min pin had been to three homes already, then I put my foot down (with a thud) lol Dee
They are both so cute you must be very proud! I have my Miniature Schnauzers and I don't crop the ears either I have one my husband calls her bat girl her ears stand tall but are very wide she is a beauty and we love her she can be so funny. Meli for being 14 is beautiful doesn't look her age. Be proud they are both beuties of their own breed
Yes! I know what you mean! I love to watch when it looks like that thing that keep time while you are playing music his tail goes like that tick tock tick tock it cracks me up. But you reeealllly need a sense of humor to own these! A realllllly gooood sense of humor! Man they get into everything and just when you think you have everything covered bhammmm they found something else! Dee
Yes!! If you drop a paper clip or rubber band, they will find it. When Jackson goes zooming past me into his crate, I know he has something he should not. We are very careful but you can't catch everything!
Just remember that a tired dog is a good dog. Play catch, take for a walk or whatever else gets him going. He will get so excited that you think he will pop but then he should settle down once he is tired out.
