This was my shop dog but he died last summer, so a current vacancy exists.

He was good company and useful for keeping boards flat, buffing up wax polish and the such like.

His expression in this picture is his way of reminding me he never did forgive me for gluing him to the workshop floor once! [scared]

Well if he will go to sleep in a puddle of Cascamite what do you expect!

Sorry to hear of your loss. Cute little guy.  Dogs are man's best friend as they say. I'm just so amazed by how you can accidently give them a boot when your walking around and how they're immediately wagging their tail. I love dogs :) our little girl is getting on as you can see from her muzzle. I'm wanting to be another dog but this time a full sized one. Can't though until we get some more space, property that is. The dog I want is a vizsla and they have a lot of energy.

If you want know who loves you more , your wife or your dog , lock them both in the trunk of the car for an hour. When you come back, One of them will be happy to see you....

Buster was my shop dog until he passed at 13 years old.  He used to keep the unwanted visitors at a distance.  I actually had a shop "cat" a big siamese who would sleep in the wood chips at the front of my planer.  When I ran the planer he would just brush away the chips landing on his head.

My shop dog was a Golden who was with us for nearly 17 years.  My shop, for most of her life, was the wide open spaces.  When I would get to a jobsite and let her out of my truck, she would immediately start to run in the most interesting (to her) direction. I would wait until she would reach a property line and yell "NO".  She would stop immediately and run in another direction until reaching a boundary when I would again yell, "NO". We would repeat the process until we were both satisfied a circumference of boundary had been established. I could work all day from then on and she would stay within the bounds we had established together.

Why Some Men Have a Dog And No Wife:
 
1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.
 
2. Dogs don't notice if you call them by another dog's name.
 
3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.
 
4. A dog's parents never visit.
 
5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point
across.
 
6. Dogs find you amusing when you're drunk..
 
7. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.
 
8. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask,
"If I died, would you get another dog?"
 
9. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper
and give them away.
 
10. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without
calling you a pervert.
 
11. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad.
They just think it's interesting.
 
And last, but not least:
 
12. If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff.
 
To test this theory:
Lock your wife and your dog in the garage for an hour.
Then open it and see who's happy to see you.

My latest dog hung around (happily) for 16 years. (she's the one who worked out boundaries with me)  Almost without fail, whenever a strager drove int the yard, she would run out to great them very loudly.  she seemed to have a great sense for trust.  if she trusted the stranger, she would take them by the hand to lead them to the house.  sometimes, she would try to relieve a load from the hand, especially a woman's pocket book.  Sometimes, she would stand beside me of my wife and just bark, but would walk into the house quite calmly when we would all go inside.  there were others that when they got out of the car, she would retreat to a position behind my legs and peak around and bark as it she were saying, "Hold me back! Hold me back!"

There were two people over time that she had absolutely no trust for.  She would stop barking and sort of wrap her body around the front of my legs, pushing me for all she was worth away from the person.  one was a salesman that niether my wife, nor i felt we could trust.  He never came back.  The other was a local contractor who i was working together with on a couple of projects.  My dog not only tried to push me away from him.  When we sat down at our kitchen table to discuss projects together, my dog would sit between us, never once taking her eyes off of the man.  we worked together on several projects for maybe three months. Finally, at some point, I found out my dog was a much better judge of character than I.

I'm sure speed will explain but its a 110 volt multi socket. The yellow box is a 110 transformer and the flying saucer an extension cable reel. Now I want an explanation as to why they have 110v on site in the UK?

Condolences, it's always hard losing a pet. But, he couldn't have been all that great a dog. In the picture it looks like you're kicking him.

Buster never got abused, that was lifting his head when he had trouble getting up.  I bought a wrap around lift and booties for that dog and carried him out for a walk the last two years of his life [big grin].  He was a very happy dog and even at $100/week on meds, I don't regret it a minute.

I understand completely. I did much the same thing for a previous cat. The really hard part came when I knew he was in pain and it was time to put him down.

I agree with you and after several dogs and cats, Buster was the first to live in the house and shop and became part of the family unlike any other before him.  That made is very difficult but, when he couldn't eat and couldn't get up and just looked up at me with a pained expression I knew it was time.  If I was younger I'd have another German Shepard but, ay my age I don't think it would be fair to the dog since my running days have passed long ago.
