Dog carriages used to be considered transportation for poor people in Europe until automobile engines proved too disruptive for them.

That's nothing!

PS. It's almost certainly a hoax.

I adore dogs, but I haven't had one in years as I lived in an apartment. Now I've got a house, but also three cats over the age of 10 (a family - papa cat and his two daughters). I'm not messing with that dynamic, but when they go, I'll probably get a puppy and a kitten and have them grow up together.

I don't know if any of you watch "Futurama," but this scene is quite possibly the sweetest, saddest thing I have ever seen on TV. Fry got transported to the future and figured eh, his dog probably forgot about him after a little while anyway...


I cry every time I see this.

The dalmatian is symbolic in fire fighting today, but in the past their job was to keep the wild dogs away from the horses which pulled the fire trucks.

Here's a hilarious youtube video about a guy with a "dog friend" and a "cat friend". (Cat lovers might not want to watch, though ):

By the way, since you live in a place I like, what a story, both the real one and its poetic versions:

i cried like a baby at the end of this movie i guess because it was based on a true story made it even more sad.

You have to hand it to the St. Bernad for saving lives. We probably woldn't have them if not for the Romans. The same holds for some of the best guard dogs like mastiffs and rottweilers.

Newfoundlands are great as long as the climate is not too hot.

And, who would think today's Dachshund to be a fierce hunter that took on badgers and even wolverines in the past.
