    Hi there,

    OS 10.4.x was Tiger; 10.5.x was Leopard; 10.6.x is Snow Leopard.

    Here's the complete list, courtesy of wikipedia.

    Hope this helps.

    LOL Neth beat me to the punch (musta been while I was looking at the wiki page )

    If you have a MacBook (Intel CPU)...then the OS can be upgraded to Snow Leopard (OS 10.6).

    Thanks, Neth That is Pepa, my 3 1/2 year old Rottie, when she was about 7 months old.
    I have another one of her (see attachment) set as my desktop piccy. She's 10 1/2 months, in that one.

    Aw, what a cute rottie. I'm trying to convince my vet student fiancee to get a rottie with me when we get a house. I think she wants something less pure bred, which I can deal with, but I love rotties. She wants to rescue a pitbull... I want a rottie. Really, we'll probably end up with a lab mix of some sort.

    Thanks DR,
    Pepa's my baby, as you can probably tell lol. I searched high and low, for my ideal Rottie; temperament, colouring, blood lines, etc.
    It took me 12 years of research and travel, before I settled on Pepa, who has great Russian (and prior ex GDR) bloodlines, with four Russian National champions in the preceeding six years.

    Good luck with your quest to find your ideal dog, DR.

    OP: Sorry for hijacking your thread with the pic and pooch talk.

    I find it amusing that a thread about Big Cats has turned into one about Big Dogs.
