|Dog Lovers in Nigeria: introduce your pet dogs! by Seun(m): 11:01am On Apr 04, 2005|
I've created this thread as a place where you can introduce your pet dog.
My first dog was a cross between an Alsatian and what we know as the 'local breed'. I named [I]him[/I] 'Jack', of course . But he ran away 2 days before the day he was scheduled to be sold: he used to make a lot of noise at night, trying to find a way to leave the house to mate with female dogs in heat. Jack is the only dog I ever regarded as "mine": I was his primary care-giver, and I was about 10 years old. He hardly ever barked at anybody; he preferred to play all the time!
Our current dogs are named 'Billy' and 'Shermin'. Both of them are castrated males. Shermin is Billy's son-in-law. Billy had a sister called 'Nala' who mated with an Alsatian-mongrel (like Jack) and gave birth to 3 puppies in our house. Shermin was one of them. You cannot enter our compound if our dogs have not been secured in their cage. Unlike Jack the playful, Billy and Shermin dogs will bark at your, scratch you, and bite you, regardless of who is with you when they see you.
As far as I am concerned, Billy and Shermin are my sister's dogs. She named them (she's better at naming pets!) and when she's at home she does the hard work of keeping them clean. The food they eat is specially prepared white rice with boiled fish and no stew. They don't eat rice with stew in it!

We had several dogs while I was growing up in Ibadan. I love dogs with a passion but that passion became significantly dim in 1999 when I lost my very own dog. He was a pure Labrador and absolutely out of this world (well, he's gone back there, hasn't he?). I named him 'Blacky' because he was black all over save for a hint of white on his neck.
He simply took to me out of the other dogs the minute he trotted into the house. There were times I could have sworn that Blacky understood my moods. We were that close. I would take him for walks amidst several admiring glances from onlookers, bathe him every blessed Saturday morning, go for drives together and the likes.
Anyways, he was poisoned by men of the underworld in several abortive attempts to gain entrance into our compound. He eventually gave in and died. It was indeed a sad day. I remember I was writing my exams in UI then and my folks kept the news from me till I finished and came home. Such was my closeness to the dog. Suffice to say that I've ever since kept a safe distance between our dogs and myself.
The last time I was home there were 2 huge dogs christened 'Tiger' and 'Betsy' by my mum, no less. Tiger looks very much like one but I really don't know anything about him. My present living conditions do not permit owning a dog, but I very much suspect that should I move into an accommodation with a garden or some space enough for a roomy kernel tomorrow, I'll be getting myself another Blacky.

Personally 'I' don't have a dog rather 'we' my family have two: 'Captain' and 'Duchess' (should be Duchess 2, I call her Sultana). Anyway we believe Captain is a cross btw a German Shepherd and a local while Duchess is an Alsatian. Captain is about nine years and the one I prefer; unfortunately I haven't visited my family for a while, so I don't know how well they are doing. Anyway, captain is a 'bota' dog - he knows the difference between white rice and jollof rice - usually never finishes the white, and he can be very picky about his food.
Anyway the first dog we ever had was called prince and since that time we've had a tradition of giving our dogs aristocratic names: Prince, emperor, duke, duchess, colonel, captain etc very funny eh?
I once had a pic of me and captain on my yahoo site but have removed it.
Captain once taught me to respect the old adage: 'Let sleeping dogs lie'. I'll talk about it another time, and of course he's my favorite.
That reminds me, I am a member of one Yahoo pet group, and once I was chatting with an American woman and she asked me what we fed our dog. I told her that buying those dog foods that they give their dogs is too expensive so we just give our dogs the same as what we eat. She then told me that to do that over there would be too expensive .

Attention Dog Breeders: Please make sure to post to this forum if you're a dog breeder. Or if you own a female pure-bred Alsatian, Rottweiler or other breed. Be sure to take a look at this 'dog wanted' ad. Do you have cute pictures of your dog? Let's see them!

I had four Dogs at home before i left for school. Jack(Mongrel) , Spark(Some funny hairy hybrid really short fat and fluffy dog very fluffy), Billy(mongrel) and Fluke(Rot and dubberman cross).
Jack was the first and was my favorite Dog. he could understand every sign i made and even my emotions he knew when i was angry, Sad and Happy. We played all the time. and Men Jack Loved to play. Jack's like the closest friend I've had after Tim.
Spark Loves alot of petting belongs to my younger sister. He also love to join me and jack in playing. but he often get angry quickly. and when that happens he just walks away.
Billy is always shy and almost never plays with humans. except when you bring it food he has no tail like Fluke so his tail always looks funny when he wags.
Fluke is a very shy but playfull Dog and he's got more Rot genes in him that a dubber man he's got the dauber man physique(lean waist, big chest, strait ears, no tail,) and he's got the rot behaviors described above. Silent until after the strike. He bite some of my Dad's friend when we forget to lock his cage.
I took a picture with Jack once i mean my mum took our picture though i can't locate that pic anymore. It was really nice... He was licking my eyes and refused to look at the camera.
Mongrels are lovely breeds. they are very very lovely and can learn a lot. They understand you when you are so close to them and in my case Jack could understand emotions. I never really saw these then until years after. Looking back i can see th beauty of loving an animal.
Especially a Dog.
I don't know where they breed dogs in town.
But i will get one when i settle i sure will.

well, I have owned a 4 ft iguana named Iggy (how original of a name, huh?), numerous fish, a garter snake, a chameleon, a pit bull, a border collie, a dingo, a black lab, a mongrel, a husband (oops, this is about non-human pets, huh?), three cats (Momma, Sweetpea and Kiva), and I have bred golden retrievers since 1999. My current goldens, Ike and Tina, have had 5 beautiful litters. I owned a puppy from one of their litters, but was only able to keep her, named Miranda, for a year. I am a dog lover - I love everything about them. Ike and Tina have distinct personalities. Ike is very protective, but he has a very "chilled out" personality. Tina, on the other hand, is a drama junkie, who needs constant attention and petting. Ike has a huge vocabulary - if I say, "Ike, who's upstairs - go check the door.", he'll drop whatever he's doing and go upstairs and bark. Tina is a bit more challenged - she hasn't been able to distinguish between the words toy and moth. So when moth season comes and I ask her to get a moth, she inevitably grabs one of her toys. Or if I ask her to get a toy, she stalks a moth,

We always had dogs but non was for me.
The first dog we had was called lucy she died at the age of 12 lucy followed us everywere we even used totake her to the village and lucy loved to swim.
But lucy was a disgrace she was afride of hens., There were these mother hens that used to run after her.we were the joke of tthe hood.
Billy was also a dog we had billy must have ended a a pot because one day he did not come home again.
We had cleo as in Cleopatra my father had to shoot her, cleo was a bit mad and started attacking us.
I think my sister must have brought home like 3 doges that she picked up somewere on her way home from school and all were mad my dsd shoot them all.
But from all the dogs we had it was only lucy and billy1 and 2 that left an impact on us.
we also had a cat called Kitty-Cat all the dogs we had were afride of her.
They all used to eat from the same plate. but no dog deared to eat without allowance from Kitty-Cat.
Sometimes Kitty-Cat will sit at the gate and sometimes a stary dog will feel like coming into the compound.
But on seeing Kitty-Cat will stop at the gate and not have the guts to come in.
Yes Kitty-Cat even used to fight snakes. even dogs, one slap from her on their lips with her claws made them run tail between their legs.
Kitty-Cat died at the age of 15, she fell asleep under a tree and did not wake up.
she was buried under the tree.

I got attacked by an oloshi dog at the roundabout close to my house 2 weeks ago. It scared me so much, I called the police and reported the dog [evil thing] straightaway. I immediately bought a bike to convey myself around Hatfield. . . .
