HOLY CRAP, BATMAN!!!! That is uncany!
While the vid doesn't look much like him THAT shot sure does! Markings on the face are almost identical!
I hope you have the great friend I have here with Calvin. Just gave him a long brush-fest and he is now happily chomping on a biscuit filled kong. One of the best days of my life when he walked up my drive. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by spapad from Sunday, March 15, 2009 9:41:43 PM)
Oh My god! I never relized when I picked her up how much she looked like Calvin! If those two little buggers aren't of the same ilk, I would be suprised!
She's just the best, just worry about tomorrow with no one home for a while! Hope all goes well. (Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Sunday, March 15, 2009 9:35:25 PM)

Lucy is as big as Bella was as far as hieght, but she is no skinny I don't think she weighs more than 25. Last 48 hours, I think she gained a few pounds and is leaving the biggest piles in the yard! LOL I hope to get her up to 35 or 40, whichever she looks best at. Right now she's so tiny I feel like I'm gonna break her if I pat her too hard.
So probably that speckling on both come from Bluetick, a familiar animal in these parts of the world. I can see beagle, but must be bluetick to get the marks, and she's not stuburn like a beagle! LOL
KEWL vid Spa!
Vet said that his best guess was that Calvin was some sort of beagle / birddog mix. Too tall for a regular beagle but still has the bark and digging tendencies (lunar landscape backyard, IOW).
As for your doggie gate, be creative...like me! (damned if that hound didn't chew up one of the clamps I had hooking it onto the stairs, though. Babygate in the doorway to my great room and this kept him from jumping the stairs!
Check out the innovation (and mess...thank you shoe muncher!).
Holly crap! What kind of dog did your vet say Calvin was? Lucy has those litttle spots in her. I figured it came from bluetick, but I dont know.
"Oh Calvin, oh you gave and you gave without taking....." Whoops. Not the singing thread?
