    Default Pride and Fall

    I was wondering about my 'proudest moment' of my dogs have been. And what their moment of shame has been for each too.

    Proudest for Bernie: him finding a Samoyed trapped down a drain and taking me to it, kinda 'lassie' moment.
    Fall: first time at dog beach, drank gallons of sea water, went straight through him, and passing watery s**t all over my leg as we were getting him in car. Much to my husbands delight.

    Proudest for Pohm: When she met Sherlock pup face to face, and led down so he could get to her and play.
    Fall: When she came trotting into camp area, please to bits coz she'd rolled in what my son should of buried with a shovel.

    What has your dog done so far, that has been your proudest dog owner moment with them, similarly, the least proud?

    What a great topic!!

    Proudest for Meika: when she spent all afternoon playing with the down syndrome boy at the park, he was picking her up, pulling her ears and tail, chasing her everywhere and she just kept hanging around, picking up toys and bringing them to him and just being great

    I can't think of a bad thing for Meika, only bad/embarrassing thing she does is jump into cars if she sees the door open haha!

    Proudest for Molly: The whole last few months have been proud moments (I know it sounds corny) but she's gone from being a skinny, terrified, timid dog to one of the most happy, outgoing dogs you will ever meet
    Fall: when she did 2 of the biggest, stinkiest craps ever in the vet surgery in a matter of 10 seconds... I almost died from embarrassment!

    MOJO

    Pride- When we graduated basic obedience. He got the loudest round of applause from the crowd. Everyone loved the 'big' puppy.

    Fall- The 3 times now he's had a go at the same kid. Never bit him but really gets aggressive towards him. I just dont understand it at all. He LOVES everyone else no matter what age, colour or size but he dosnt like this one boy for some reason. It breaks my heart that he's broken my trust when it comes to any kid now.

    Proud- when she sat next to me at the beach while I was talking to an acquaintance- didn't wiggle, didn't jump, didn't lunge at the ball catcher. Looked like my distant vision of a well trained border collie.
    Fall - at the park when she totally ignored me and belted after some people with a dog and tripped the woman up by running in front of them.arghh

    obedience is very mixed..sigh

    Banjo:

    I find it very hard to pick one!

    Proudest: When she came when I called her the first time she met a kangaroo up close.

    Most shameful: Gosh, this one is really hard! I suppose when she dug up some rotten eggs from someone's compost heap, deposited them on their lawn and then rolled in it. It was a dinner party and it was a miracle no one vomited. The smell permeated the whole yard. I had to wash her on the spot.

    Fall: When he tried to snap at a family friend...

    Dodge-
    Proudest: Any time she actually listens to me when i call her! (she see's my dad as her one and only master)
    Fall: pretty much every time i try to call her

    Oskars Proud and Falls hmmm

    Proud: When he is patient with the children...just recently I have started taking him for walks in the afternoon and he has learnt quite quickly to sit patiently while other pooches are walked past. I have to tell him to as it is a new thing, but he is doing very well...

    Fails: When we take him to the beach he wants to eat puppies, for some reason he doesn't like them...um killing a couple of chooks , barbie dolls, etc.

    Molly
    Proudest: Flying through obedience, didn't have to resit any of the classes, by the time we graduated the rest of our class we began with were still repeating.
    Fall: This is hard because i can never really find fault with her.. Probably when she decided to eat cat poo for breakfast, and then proceeded to vomit it out in the backseat of my car.
    Rexy
    Proudest: when my 5month old nephew came to visit. None of the dogs have ever been around babies before so i was apprehensive on how they would behave. Rex adored him, and sensed that he was something 'special' and would very carefully walk around him on the bed, and lay next to him (very tiptoe like), and would sit outside with him when we placed him in his walker, he was constantly guarding him, protecting.

    Fall: When we take him to the park and turns into a nightmare around other dogs, especially large, clumsy puppies.

    bernie - I can see that most are just doing one of each - so here goes !

    Riley - proudest moment - when he joined our family a bit over 3 1/2 years ago and gave my beautiful 9 year old GSP girl the will to carry on and mended her broken heart. When my other male died 6 months before Riley arrived, my poor little girl just lost the will to live. I tried everything with her - but all she wanted was a big boofy boy in her life, so she picked Riley !

    Riley - fall moment - thank goodness I only have to mention 1 !!!!!!!!! Riley is a very talkative GSP and has a very full and large range of whoo- woos ! He wolf whistles pretty young ladies when we are out and about ! He has absolutely no shame - nose up in the air and away he goes ! If they ignore him - he just does it louder !!!!!!!
