My mom's dog was my best friend when I was visiting her back in March....she was about 16 weeks when I was down there, 12 weeks in this picture. She looks much bigger now and is currently at bird hunting school.

Damn you! Now I want another Brittany puppy. I don't think a cuter creature exists.
I would like to purchase one of these beautiful bengal cats you speak of. Please advise as to how I can make this happen. And I thank you.
They are not cheap, and they are not for everyone.
The reason for their looks is that they are part Asian Leopard Cat. They get some different habits from being a cross. They are very high energy, these are not sleep all day lazy cats. If you don't have time to play with them for at least a half hour each day they will get bored and be unhappy. They tend to be a lot more sociable than the average cat. When I have guests over, Odin is usually right up in their face investigating and looking for attention. Very inquisitive, even for a cat. Some describe their personalities as doglike. They are very intelligent and trainable. Odin will come to me when called and has learned to shake. He has figured out how to open pull down latch style doorknobs, and also how to open my foot pedal trash cans. They tend to be pretty talkative, and do more chirps and trills than normal meows. They are a bit bigger and more solid than the average cat, Odin is 16 pounds and very lean, plus he was not the biggest of his litter either. Oh, you can't tell this from a photo, but his fur is ultra soft.
Not sure if mine is typical, but Odin is also very gentle. A stranger can walk into the house and scoop him up, he will just squirm and complain a little. He won't hiss, claw, or bite. My (then) three year old niece pulled on his tail and whiskers repeatedly and Odin just shied away from her.
A kitten will likely be in the $600 to $900 range. Odin is from a breeder outside Philly, Marilyn Seserko, her website is http://www.bengals-chausies.com/
A couple more pics of the little nut. Hard to tell on the first one, but he is lying on my chest. The third one is when he was a kitten. The last one is some of the doglike behavior. He will sometimes play tug-o-war with me.

Cooper. He's an asshole.
This is our sheltie/whippet/beagle mix (seriously) Dakota. Or, as I call him, the craziest dog in the world. Given his nutty herder genes, he hates when the humans are on different floors in the house -- so he adapts.
Miss my corgis...
Baxter is the bigger one (boy) and Lexi was a year younger. Lexi lost her cool sabling (dark mask) as she got older.

Terra is a long coat shepherd and just turned a year. She has all the makings of the best dog I've ever had and is really getting good at frisbee. Molly is rescue, not exactly sure what she is. She's a lot older but they get along pretty well.
We've also got 2 cats but that's not my jurisdiction.

My past dogs never understood the concept of 4 different people in the house watching the same thing on four different tv's. #poweroftheremote
Wallly's cool, good name too. Any idea what he is?
Thanks. He is a little bigger now, but looks just abut the same.
Pickles, a hyper pain in the neck beagle mix, followed by Doonbug, a super sweet and easy bassett mix.
we thought he was german shepherd/retriever mix when he was a puppy, but now that he is full grown he looks more like an aussie shepherd/retriever mix. he's a little over 60 pounds and physically looks like a golden retriever, but acts more like a shepherd.
Chloe does that lying on the chest thing too. She'll sit on your lap but sort of longways so her head is way far up on your chest, almost in your face. She's the sweetest.
And holy shit Odin legit looks like a mini-tiger in that mouth open pic.
Yes, word to the wise: if you are adopting or buying a dog, inquire as to whether he comes from any herders. If so (and assuming you don't live by yourself) prepare for a life of hell.
This tread inspired me to take my dog for a hike the other day.
Shasta, 9 year old lab/pit mix.
With those colors I gotta go with part shepherd. But then again I'm obviously partial.
One more of Terra, just because.
Edit: why the hell does this thumbnail look cropped, then full view when clicked?

Given my dog falls under some of the breed specific legislation and is an absolute sweetheart I hope this makes it through (knowing full well it won't accomplish anything)
Signed. Also, more Scout!
