MZ23s Dogs by Coloran MZ23s Dogs by Coloran
Here are my three awesome dogs!

:bulletblue:Lilly--female--4 year old--lab/golden retriver (labrolden)

:bulletyellow:Cletus--male--3 year old--pit bull

:bulletred:Billboy--male--9 month old--lab/golden retriever/doberman (labrolderman ;) )



I love these dogs more than you can imagine, or if you are also a dog nut, then you know EXACTLY what I mean :squee:

I made a gif because after about 30 pictures of this same exact pose I found 3 that I really liked! XD And they wouldn't all stay still at the same time of course...:)

If you ever felt like giving me some gift art, you could draw these guys!

Oh yes! :D Billboy (in the picture with her) is one of her pups! There were 3 brown with gold "dobie" markings, 2 black with gold "dobie" markings, and 2 blonde, and 2 sandy brown! :)

Just wondering, is Cletus a pure-bred Pit bull? :) To me he looks like he may be mixed with another breed, but I could be wrong ^.^

I think his dad was a staffie. He looked JUST like this, but with more white on his chest and paws :pointr: [link]

But his mom was definitely a APBT. She was tiny, so so tiny! And had a very narrow face with ears just like Cletus. While his dad had the fattest head I had ever seen! And tiny little "bat" ears, like in that picture.

So I just call Cletus a pit bull, because well a staffie/apbt mix is a general pit bull to me!

I have no idea where his parents are now....they were so sweet! But were ghetto dogs....so they had no manners and their owner was....less than adequate. He was my mom's friend from high school. My mom actually took Cletus's mom from the owner when she was going to have the puppies. We wanted to make sure the pups were safe! And we gave the mom, Cleo, back to him when the pups were 2 months old, placed all the pups, and I kept Cletus! :D

Your dogs are so cute!

.3. Don't you think Lilly's and Cletus's collar is kindah bad for them? ---> [link]
You know..since they have spikes touching their skin? ;/

Coloran Featured By Owner May 2, 2012  Student General Artist
Thank you!

And the collar thing is a common misconception. Its called a pinch/pronged collar. It has tongs, not spikes, because they are not in anyway sharp at the end.I would never do anything to hurt my dogs!

Its used for training, they do not where those all the time. Only for walks.

Say that your dog hauls you around, when you try to walk it. With that collar, the dog can pull you (they don't puncture their skin, or leave marks, or even make your dog whimper), but then you can very calmly give a slight jerk back, and a command. Its for getting the dogs attention to correct the behavior you don't want and not as a punishment.

Its simply a tool.

Now people ask me, "Well if its for training, why are your dogs still wearing it? They are older...shouldn't they be trained?"

They are trained! (Well besides Billboy) They walk, excitedly, but fine with their normal collars on. We actually all walk in a line.I'm sure its quite a funny sight!

I am a small person...only 5'4''. Combined, my dogs weigh much more than I! I mean Cletus is 70 pounds by himself!

I put the collars on them to keep them from pulling me when they get excited, and to keep them listening to my commands and under my control. Because you can bet when they see a squirrel or a rabbit, they want after it! XD

And they look “tight” in the picture is because they are trying to get closer to me with the camera! They wouldn’t pull where they hurt them selves! I am all about safety :) For humans and animals alike!

I had a dog that pulled like that and mom made me use a choke collar on him - made me feel absolutely awful...but I found something that works AMAZINGLY well and doesn't pinch or poke or squeeze or anything! They're called anti-pull harnesses. I was skeptical when it said "Stops pulling INSTANTLY"! on the package but by god it was NOT kidding! They're simply unable to pull at all - no need to jerk back, or pull against them, or anything! It works by having this special strap around their chest and if they try to pull, it just lifts up their top half a bit and they go nowhere. Since Billboy's back legs are like that I'm not sure if I'd recommend it for him, but you could try it for Lily and Cletus if you want to - I'm smaller than you are and I had no problem walking Baron after I got him that harness, and I wasn't worn out at all after walks. It seriously worked wonders <33

Oh really? Would you mind sending me a link to one? Just so I can see what they look like? I've tried buying anti-pull harnesses before, but they never worked! (So I think I definitely have the wrong kind!)

Yeah, Billboy isn't that bad on the leash! His only problem is that he likes to bark at the occasional dog! :XD: But we are working on that!

Lilly and Cletus get so stinkin' excited to be outside and together, that they pull...My plan for this upcoming week is to take them on walks individually. Just because I think they need a re-fresher course on walking nicely every once in a while!! :)

Its like this, except the straps that go under their front legs are padded with soft stuff, and its all attached, you don't have to clip them together. Same basic idea though [link]

Sounds like a good plan to me, haha xD Pocco and Sysco get excited for walks around the property (walking down the road is too dangerous - too many loose aggressive dogs) but their harnesses keep them from pulling, and I walk them on a Y-leash so I can have a free hand xD

Huh! Those are really interesting! :D

I actually have been doing a lot of training with my three hounds, and we went on an hour and a half walk today, (Lilly and Cletus wearing their normal collars and Billboy wearing a pronged one) and had only one "flair up" when Cletus saw a squirrel!! Other than that they walked beautifully together! Very little pulling! I was so proud! :D

God yush. I know how you feel. I'm 5'4" too and my dog is around 80 lbs. *__* I die after I walk him.

Squirrels....Don't get why they have to be near dogs..

Coloran Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012  Student General Artist
Oh yes! That's actually just how he sits, when he was 5 months old, he was hit by a car. He fractured his pelvis and couldn't walk for 6 weeks. But on my 18th birthday he walked for the very first time! He has been gaining back muscle and weight ever since. And that picture was actually the very first walk he went on since he was hit!

He's skinnier, more fragile, and weaker than the other dogs .But he can run, and jump, and play! But he's not in pain, and is a very sweet and happy pup! :)
