Thought I would start a thread for our four legged mates, who most of us have. But can sometimes be an undervalued friendship. So post up some pictures of your mates. I'll start with my two, some would argue my only mates! Alley and Costa (short for Costalotacash) Properly trained man can be dogs best friend too. Alley's a Kelpie x English Staffie and Costa's American Bulldog.
