Great looking dogs! My beagle-sheppard mix runs for her life whenever I turn on the power tools. She doesn't mind being in the shop when I'm doing neanderwork, but she get's too wound up and won't stop running around so I generally don't torture her by locking her up in the shop with me.

I can't let two of my three hang around me, because they're wanderhunds, and they go wanderin'. Freckles (some kind of white hound mix) is my girl, and she's always no more than 10' away from me, unless there's a cat on the loose, or a bee. She loves to eat bees. Stupid dog. She doesn't run after people, and stays in my yard, so she's my shop dog.
She prefers to loiter just outside the shop unless it's raining. If it's raining, she wants me to leave one of the doors open. Doesn't like being closed up.
Bubby would be a good shop dog too (black and brown hound dog mix), and he's quickly becoming my boy. I didn't think I had room in my heart to love two of these things as much as I love Freckles, but I do. Unfortunately, he's got the wunderhound in him bad, and he goes all over the place if I don't watch him.
Boomer (border collie mix) is SWMBO's dog, mostly. He's our water lover. Only dog I've ever had who goes swimming every single chance he gets. He and I get along fine, but I'm not his person, and he's not my dog. That's just how it is.
Bubby and Boomer usually go down to Mom's house to play inside the fence I built for them, with Mom's six dogs. Mom has 3/4 of an acre, so it's not exactly a hardship for the pups.
All three of these critters were dumped on a Sunday by people who didn't realize the pound was closed. We found Freckles first, then Boomer a couple years later, then Bubby just this year.
I really didn't particularly want a third dog, but a whole litter of these guys showed up. SWMBO woke me up babbling about the puppies that a neighbor had found. I walked down the street, picked Bubby up, looked him in the eyes, then sat him down and walked home. He followed me, and he's been at my side ever since.
I love dogs.

Gotta love 'em. Mine are both Great Danes. My 5 month old pup, Rocky, has the wanderlust in him too. Afraid to put the door up out there for fear he will take off and not come back when I call him. Still has some learnin ta do.
My 3 yr old, Sydnee, is always by my side. She will stay in the shop even if I'm not out there, providing I can get in without her following me. Have always loved dogs and always will. You can't beat 'em for unconditional love.

Nope, and they get it right back too. Cat people think this is a bad thing, but I just don't get cats, or cat people. I've done the cat thing lots of times, but I don't think I ever will again. Kittens are cute, and cats make good pushsticks. :)

Only the frozen ones. Of the four cats who call our place home, the two young ones are dedicated shop cats. They follow me around... well, like dogs. I dunno why some cats are indifferent and others are simply in heaven when "hanging outside with the folks," as we call it. Even the sound of a screaming electic routah doesn't faze them. They're content to lay near the bench and get covered in shavings. It's funny. Someone "working," is enthralling. I guess I'm just an animal lover, cos I know we'll get a dog some day, if only to enjoy the fun of watching the dog hassle the cats.

I'm allergic to cats so I pretty well can't stand 'em. Maybe as a sacrifial fence, if they get stiff enough. 8)

My shop is between the house n garage; 2-3' doors to the garage....when my American-Eskimo isn,t chewing on my wood scrapes or playing fetch on his own, he lays at the front of the garage towards the driveway protecting me from would-be-invaders...lol.....he also like to sing (howl) next to me when i,m running the router. Its kinds funny, I usually don,t see him, because i gotta pay attention to what i,m doing, but i sure can hear him. Before going in, I usually gotta pick up 5 or 6 lil-pieces of scrap wood he hauled outta the scrap box to play with. Dogs are fun......

Sounds like a keeper. My pup is only six months old but his feet are as big as my 3 yr old. His daddy weighs in at 220 lbs plus so he is gonna be a monster. I'll have to have him haul the sheet lumber around for me.

Sadly, we had to put our canine family member down last week ... a Golden who made it to 13 1/2. She was already blind and deaf, but that didn't slow her down, until suddenly one evening last week she could no longer get up.
We still hear her tags clinking on occasion, and every so often I still catch a glimpse of her out of the corner of my eye ...

Very sorry to hear that. I know how hard that can be. Lost a few in my lifetime and it does hurt. You did have a good long time with her though, so remember those years.

I am so sorry to hear that. I too have a Golden. He is been a wonderful friend/listener/hunting buddy/etc.... I know the tight bond that can be formed. Something really special about Goldens. They need to breed some that can live 20 years. They just never live long enough. Every dog I have owned has ripped my heart out when they die. I say I will never own another, but somehow a cute puppy will find his way into my house. Enjoy her memories.
So Long, Brad

Yup. Here's the "Dog" sleeping on his house-under-construction. Some day when we get the yard fenced in, we'll have a real dog. In the meantime...

    That is some right fine joinery you got going there, Mr. Olguin. Your own design, or did you buy a plan?

Mr. Cramer,
Neither. Over the years I've posted nearly 800 questions regarding basic house-framing, the first one being: Hey, half the nails in this box are facing the wrong way! What do I do? The obvious answer was, "Hey dumbass, those nails are for the other side of the house."
Having done a fair amount of house-framing as a youngster, I adopted this basic tenet: we don't use no steenking joinery! I suppose were I to timberframe the feline domicile, I'd do it with some snazzy giant M&T's, but this is your basic stick-frame house, with the sole plates screwed to the base (3/4 marine ply). The siding is to be cedar (rabbetted edges, don't have a set of match planes for T&G), and the roof is asphalt shingles, complete with sheet metal drip edge.
I'm allergic to cats too, which is why I'm building the house... so they can stay outside and not get eaten by coyotes.
A timberframed cat house... now that'd be something.

    I've been wondering: can you actually make T&G joints with a matched set of planes? I mean, how would it work? I mean, when you make them with a router, everything lines up good and the joint fits together, but if you were doing it by hand, how could you possibly keep the T from wandering all over the edge of the board and stuff? Same with the G? Do you know what I mean? Can hand tools actually do the work of real tools?

    You are some kind of soft-hearted fool. Coyotes need to eat, too.

    I was in one once, just outside of Reno.

I would'nt bother finishing the dog house - these failed genetic experiments don't usually live very long.
