Yep we keep an eye on it --- it is funny -- my daughter found her at the animal refuge leaque on sept. 11, 2001 -- I was a little freaked about the black thing -- but she found the hairs -- so Salem came to live with us on 911

It has been 5 years and I am here to tell the story!! Thank God!! And yes I kept the cat -- but if she gets out for any reason -- I DO NOT go after here!!! I am very nervous around cats now as well.
So there is my story!!!
"Say what you mean and
Mean what you say"
Boston Terriers are my favorite breed of dog. I have one and when I first got her (4 yrs ago next month), we lived in an apartment complex. There were 5 other bostons and we would all get our dogs together once a week in the tennis court to play together. All 6 of them are such sweet dogs. They're playful, but gentle.....they're people pleasers and they are little love bugs.
I want another one eventually, but my husband wants a mini Dachshund. lol

I have two breeds of dogs I like the most: blue weimaraner(this one is 7 months old and weighs 105lbs!) and rottweilers. Currently I don't own a dog cause of the apartment but when we get our own house I am getting a weim pup! Don't care for cats unless they are outside only! I must say though I like the siamese(sp) cats! I have a cockatiel that stays at my mothers house. I like birds very much. Hoping to own a macaw one day.
20g long 84w, fluorite, planted, 5 Habrosus Corys, MTS, pair of Clown Pleco (L104)
20gal tall: home to 10 brevis. Letting them pair off then will put the rest into the 55.
It's too hard to pick... I love Greyhounds and Mastiffs. More of the calmer, large breeds. But any dog is a member of the family regardless of breed. I like cats but am allergic to them so never had one.
35 Gallon (36" Long) See my tank pics and stats: My Blog
Plants: Amazon Swords, Cabombas, Jungle Vals, Water Wisterias, Java Moss, Java Ferns
Fish: 6 Bronze Cories, 10 Harlequin Rasboras, 3 Sunset Thick-Lipped Gouramis, 4 (tiny) Keyhole Cichlids, 6 Otos, 1 or 2 Ghost Shrimp
Side effects of MTS:
65 Gallon, 10 Gallon, 29 Gallon (all empty or cycling)
Not entirely a breed but Im a huge fan of wolf mixes, I have a 150lb German shepard/Timber wolf cross and he is the best dog I have ever owned. Close second are Pits and Bordeux Mastiffs. As for cats nothing can beat a Maine Coon I have a 13 year old Red/White Maine named Muff...shes a great cat. She doesnt reak of pee and shes content just to lay in your lap half the day...and she has never scratched anyone :)
150G SA Cichlids|100G Planted Community|50G Reef|20G Tanganyikan|10G Divided Bettas|10G Nano Fish
Common decency...imagine the nerve!
