Thread: Animal lovers
As to other animals, there's none that I don't like or at least find interesting. Everything is part of the vast, majestic, evolving tree of life, and everything, whether it be mammal, reptile, insect, plant, bird, fish, fungi or even bacteria, all play their individual roles. I've always been in awe of this, and the incredible natural history of our planet, the evolution, triumph, and extinction of species, and the amazing ability nature has to start again.
Anyway (after the long speech), good thread!

A few years ago I had 4 dogs but sadly I lost 2 in 2 consecutive years. One a natural death, the other from a fight.
I, currently, have a wonderful black and white border collie named Lola. She is so much fun! We play at dog agility and rally obedience and dabble in tricks. She is very smart and intuitive. I am on vacation atm and really miss her. Sometime, I will upload her picture as my avatar so you can all see my pretty well lass.
Rho, Pippin was only 6 years old when he died. He came down with a condition call bloat which caused his stomach to twist 360 degrees. The vet operated; however, an anorism formed and he died at home on New Years Eve with me lying on the floor beside him. I was devastated, which is why a friend put me onto a border collie in desperate need of a loving home and I am glad she did. Albeit, it took 5 weeks after I met Lola to agree to take her. I didn't know if I could handle such an active breed, but she is amazing!
