Top 10 Dogs

Updated on December 23, 2014

Ten Outstanding Lenses on Dogs

As the subject of Dogs is my neighbourhood for my angel duties let me say up front that there are far more than 10 lenses of outstanding quality in this category so I intend to focus on just one section in this lens, that of Dog Stories, and then do others on different lenses so as not to miss any or deprive the reader of some special treats.

Dog stories comprise anything special about someone's pet that strikes at the heartstrings. Be it their personality, the love they share, the company they keep, the fun things they do or the special way they interact with people, other animals or with children.

Dogs are Great Friends and Companions

This is How Squids See Them

The following lenses were specially selected by me as the Top 10 of their kind. Gentle, loving, beautifully illustrated and simply great stories some of these works will bring tears to your eyes. Even if you have never owned a dog you will get a mighty kick out of what these carers think of their pets.

How could you not pick them as top stories but there are so many other great dog tales in Squidoo that I can't say that others would not have made the list. It's just that something extra special stood out with these yarns and the people telling them that they are here, Enjoy!

What This Author Saw in Candy

She is Extra Special

A good author encapsulates the mood, environment and events to help the audience feel as well as read about a story. CDCraftee does this in her story of Candy, a dog she longed to have, and one she waited many years to acquire. You feel the pain, the longing and the sheer joy of finally being able to purchase a wonderful animal to call her own,.

Then the story really gets interesting as she takes us through some of the trials and tribulations of owning a puppy and then a developing female dog requiring the services of a male. Finally the production of puppies and what it all finally meant for this passionate and delightful lensmaster who shares her story with us. The pics are also great, although one is currently missing,

Blind Dogs are heartbreaking

This Carer is Full of Overflowing love for Her Dog

When an animal you love loses its sight it's bad enough but when it happens and you don't know about it then it must be 10 times worse, Charlino takes us through the trauma of discovering her dog's blindness and teaches her audience what to look out for and how to care for a pet in this state. This is a lovely lens that will help many owners to come to terms with their dog's condition. She also emphasises important points and highlights the correct care procedures.

Paralysed Dog Fitted with a Frame

A heartbreaking pet story

Nightbear does a remarkable job bringing the life of her dog Bel into focus. From the first glimpse in the animal shelter they knew it was going to fill the empty hole that the death of a previously well loved dog had caused. They did not expect the horrible things that would almost take her life just 4 years later and of the paralysis the dog would live with for the remainder of its life, This is a well written piece and the passion of great pet lovers shines through,.

Cruelty to Animals Should Be Targeted by the Law

Another heartbreaking story

This beautiful carer had so much love to give to an animal so badly treated that this story will touch you deeply.

Sometimes how we find our special mates is a great story in itself and what they turn out to be even a better one. This author treats us to the heartbreaking cruelty some people inflict on their pets to the passion of rescuing and caring for a beautiful companion.

Their Gentle Loving Nature Make these Dogs Special

This story is not so much words as pictures with great captions. It lightens the mood while highlighting a most beautiful companion pet. This breed is one of my favorites so it is no surprise that it makes this list. They are intelligent, hard working and gorgeous animal companions and yet their gentleness and mate-ship says it all.

If ever I own another dog I think it will have to be a Border Collie.

Little Dogs also Have Their Place Here

For the lover of cuteness this lens is superb. A glorious animal whose owner sings its praises with passion and love in abundance. The author treats us to her story from beginning to end and gives a lot of tips on this breed and its characteristics

The German Shepherd is my next Favorite Dog

Learning to care for and respect this most honorable breed of dog is one of the joys that this lensmaster took on when she adopted a rescue pet and turned it into her family's wonderful companion. Having been reared with a German Shepherd in my parent's home I join with her in singing the praises of a dog breed that is everything we want a dog to be.

Another Little Dog with Oodles of Charms

If you never knew what that is then you just might run out and buy yourself a Yorkshire Terrier after reading this wonderful story. But wait! There's more! This is a miniature of a very small breed. It's able to fit inside a tea-cup. Incredible, well read the story and see for yourself.

Doggie Love for Sale

Just Got to Have a Puppy

They say you can't buy love but you can certainly find it in the most unexpected ways. Resisting the little pup was too hard in the end for this author who not only reluctantly took a bundle of love and friendship under his wing but now can't sing its praises loud enough.

Saving an Abandoned Pet

One Man's Trash . .

Abandoned pets represent a form of cruelty that is just too hard to understand. Thank goodness there are people like this great lensmaster who found a wonderful friend and companion in her rescued pup. Cisco is quite a farm hand now and a great friend whose life could have ended in a horrible way were it not for being in the right place at the right time.

      Welcome home. We wish you all A wondrous New Year fielld with more grand adventures, health, Sibe magic, great surprises (of the good kind), and always love.Thanks for the gift of your friendship. It means a lot to us.Puff's current favorite thing is an old chewy stick she found in the dog toy box which has now also become White Dog's favorite, which has also become Quinn's so it goes outside with Puff, comes in with WD, is snatched up by Quinn. Only Nuka with her 8 teeth isn't interested! Now mind you we have a graveyard's assortment of bones throughout the house but it only this one.
