That's a sweet pup, Rob! The first picture makes it look like she's got a leg in the wrong place!

 

Here's my mate, he's been watching me abuse steel for years, just tucked under a bench in the warm, especially this time of year. For some bizarre reason it he pic's landed on it's side, but I'm sure you'll get the idea. Have a good new year, Mate!

He is a ripper, my dogs always converge on me when I start forging...swearing etc does not deter them at all. Love his colours and wavy hair.

Here's my baby, Trixie, aka The Goofy-One. She just turned eight years old a couple weeks ago.

This is my handsome best friend. I rescued him off of a farm some 81/2hr round trip from where I live when he was 14months old. He was not working the sheep the way he was ''supposed" to so I rescued him. What he doesn't know is he rescued me, as not more than 1 month before I got him I was diagnosed with PTSD from my 10 years service in the Australian Army. He wakes me and night and holds me/lies on me at night when I am crying and shaking in the dark. This is my Rex...

What does your PTSD service dog do for you, if you don't mind me asking?

Rex isn't trained as such, but I think he just knows when I'm having it rough and provides me the comfort and support it need at all hours without question. I'm currently going to DVA now get my entitlements but it's a long drawn out process.

his presence alone is usually enough to keep me calm,  but in times of stress like a major anxiety incident, he kind of crowds me away from everyone like a lost sheep =P. In the US a service dog is required to do at least 2 tasks to improve the life of the owner, his other nifty trick is waking me up and turning on the lights when i have night terrors

I think we hijacked the thread, but... Rex wakes me up when i have my night terrors, but turning the light on would be super handy. Sometimes I wake disoreintated and afraid but I have learnt to associate Rex (and his licking) with its OK. 

Thank you sharing your personal story about your dog with me. I wish I could take Rex with me everywhere, but as he isn't an Official Assistance Dog I can't.

go to your local police station and ask for the name of their dog trainer. 99% of the time they certify service dogs for vets after some evaluation and simple training. Pretty cheap... at least here in the US

Well, she is a lab...;) Mine is eight years old, and still a pup! All she lives for is to play (and eat).

Great thread, love seeing everyone's beautiful dogs.

My other dog / Wifes (she brought into relationship) is a Pure Bread Border Collie, nudging 11 in April and she is keeping up with the 2 year old. She has been like this for the past 4 years. No one believes that she is 11. No signs of age kicking in, other than getting grumpy with us for not taking her to bed at 8pm, Bahahaha.
