here's Porter, beer lover and Chief Brewing Assistant:
and here's Abby, turns her nose up to beer, but likes bacon as she is licking her chops in this pic for:

I love retrievers. They are awesome family pets. Great with kids. Just all around great dogs

Do you have any water (ponds, lakes, etc...) nearby. If my Lab sees water...he's in it. I wish I had a pond in my yard for him.

Another set of beautiful dogs.

thanks!  yeah, these two really stole my heart - they really are some of the best friends.

we do have a 70-80 acre lake down the street that I run them around, but believe it or not, they don't really care about the water.  they like to splash in shallow water but don't swim.  my wife and I rescued both of them at a shelter (my wife volunteers there from time to time) and I don't wonder if the lab in particular wasn't traumatized before he got to us at ~ age 2.

that's okay though, I prefer to only have to give them a bath every few weeks!

I see a recurring theme of rescued dogs here. That's so awesome. I have two pound pups myself and couldn't have asked for better dogs. First is a black lab/great dane mix who is our crazy girl Talledega. After about 6 months of her being a pure lab (destruction, hyper, etc) we found Sugar Bear, our Maremma Sheepdog at another pound. She is the complete opposite of Tally, but is loyal and protective to a fault. I'll post pics soon, but again, so great to see so many people adopting.

My brewing assistant, Zeke. He's not the smartest, or the prettiest, or the best smelling but... well I like him.

Here's my three kids

A fine bunch indeed Weaz!  :)

Do any of them like to hang out...or for that matter are allowed to hang out while you're brewing?

My boys love to be in the midst of it all...


Not really any place for them to lay in brewery, but they do check in on me from time to time. And Harley has been know to drop he occasional duce down there too.  ::)

 By buddy Doc enjoying his favorite pastime.

 He cracks me up sometimes.



And this is Mimi

 The lovely and talented Mrs. Tubercle is a veterinarian technician. Mimi was rescued from a puppy mill. Hopefully the rest of her days will be a lot less stressful in the Tubercle household.

Rescues are so kick-ass. They usually so damn grateful to their new pack and super loyal.

I seriously cannot understand how so many animals end up abandoned (I'm not talking the feral ones). All of the stories we had last year of families abandoning their homes due to the mortgages were bad enough, but out here there were a number of cases where they abandoned their dogs too. One case, someone locked their German Shepherd inside the house with a big bowl of water and split open bag of dog food. It took so long for the authorities to enter the house that the dog was eating the dry wall out of sheer need.

Bastards deserve a righteous ass kicking.

Agreed!  That fella I posted was abandoned via snowmobile along with 6 of his litter mates in the middle of February in bitter cold on the border of Idaho and Utah.  We found him whimpering and alone while we were out skiing...







This was his first night :)


I was tracking him in the snow, and thought..no way this is a puppy! :o
He turned into a fantastic dog, so glad we found him.

Doc looks like he would make a nice foot warmer...he's got some awesome markings too.

One can't say enough about rescuing dogs...Mimi looks like a real sweetheart!
