Our Husky, Denali. Age 6 and 1/2. Possibly the most awesome and intelligent dog ever but certainly not for everyone. I'm fairly confident he understands pretty much everything but you can see his wheels turning on what he needs to act like he understands.
Playing with a seldom seen but awesome friend that prompted us to get our second dog.
The second dog, King (named before we got him and we decided not to change it). Just as the brown English lab in the previous two pictures King is a pure bred English Black Lab. A lot of people don't know the difference but in a nut shell they tend to be a bit stockier, have bigger heads, and be a bit more social towards other dogs (than their taller, stockier brethren known as American Labs).
A former show dog (with blue ribbons) who was returned to the breeder by due to his older owners health issues King knows how to pose.
They truly are best friends but are so, so different. King is a bit (to me) overbearing. He follows you everywhere and is always underfoot. My wife loves this and the subsequent affection. I think it gets a bit old.
Denali is almost certainly far more intelligent but also far less obedient because of it. Anyone who knows the breed will understand this. His affection is also harder to attain. He makes you work a bit more for it. For example he will come and sit next to you wanted to be pet but will make sure he is just at the bounds of your reach. Sometimes he sits just beyond it.
King on the other hand would be as much on the furniture and in your lap as you let him. We don't let him on furniture though so instead he acts more like a cat, using any free appendage of your to give himself pets.
Ultimately though they are both so fiercely awesome that I'm terrified of the time in the (hopefully) distant future when they aren't with us anymore and we have to entertain replacing them. I'm just not certain they can be topped.
I've got lots more pics, more so of them together, but will have to pull them from a different computer at a later time.
