    Default A rant to triumph!

    I have a woman, walk past our house, twice a day, with 2 mutt's medium sized. Each day she stops, we chat, she knows how i got brian, and always asks after how he is settling in. Her name is Rose. Her dogs are briard crosses and lovely.

    Yesterday, whilst out at a silly time to avoid dodgy man with 2 out of control GSD's off leash, i met up with her in a paddock nearby. She freaked, here are the same 3 dogs, she's been admiring for 4 weeks, and she's terrified. Making a lot of noise, winding her own dogs up.
    I tie brian to a tree, drop the other 2, and remind her who we are, that she knows these dogs.
    Cautiously, we intro her 2 and my older 2, all is well, and one of hers can run fast! so bernie is straight in there with a game of chase zoomies. Whilst pohm works her magic on the lady, and has her feeding her cheese in no time.

    then she wants to meet brian. Here we go, first ever formal greeting of another human. I have my fingers crossed that he wont let the team down.
    he liked her, she smelt of cheese. he worked out where the cheese was, and wait for it........ offered a sit!
    then came the drool, lots of it, waiting for cheese. lady handed me the cheese to hand brian lol
    As she explained "it looks a bit messy".
    Her dogs give me a cuddle for a ear scratch, as i dont have cheese

    We then part n go home. My son drops off his 2 pups and off he goes to work. then back in the paddock, no dogs, but with her husband. they come up to my property, and she asks to introduce her husband to Brian as he loves that film Turner and Hooch.
    So this is 2nd random stranger, but male.
    I bring brian out, with some sausage, he's already leaning over fence for cheese! and takes it nicely from man. then from between his legs, pokes a shy Harlequin, emboldened by big fella standing over her, asks nicely for cheese. They thought Brian being so gentle with pup between his legs, was awesome, and surprising.

    That's 2 lovely humans Brian has met. Both interactions went well. Bar the slobber factor.
    But makes me aware, ive been exposing Brian to dogs, and not the humans. Must keep up introductions to humans also. As this is what he fears. Not dogs.

    and the man, had met his first ever DDB, having admired them since the film, he's smitten. What about the slobber i ask? He said he'd put up with it to look at that face daily. Woman said "NO WAY" lol

    You could always tell the bloke to suggest if he can't have a DDB, that he's going to get a bloodhound... they're the biggest slobberers there are in the dog world.

    I've met a blood hound. For Christmas Kris Kringle - I got the owner a slobber towel or two.

    Oh Bloodhounds and their slobber!! I love them to bits. But... When we are at a dog show they're in front of us - hound breeds being alphabetical, bloodhound comes just before borzoi. You have to move fast when they start to shake their heads!! Nothing like strings of drool all over a nice black jacket...

    I love drooly dogs but not sure if I could live with it either. Maybe admire from a distance...

    Yup, I've met bloodhounds and DDB - and bloodhounds beat every other dog I've ever met in the drool puddles and slobberfest. You don't even need to produce food.

    That brought up a few lovely mental images, Bernie.

    I was asking a doctor this week, about the slobber issue, and could it be treated with atropine drops as we do in humans, or using botox.
    He said that both methods would work equally well for canines. Few canines would 'get' this from owners as they accept it. (im not sure i do?)

    Now im 5 weeks into the study of this copious amounts of ectoplasm that comes out of Brian's gob. Ive noticed a few things.
    Its occurrance is clearly linked to anxiety, pleasure/excitment and food.
    If you use the weave of a towel cloth to 'hook' the end of your gooble, you can peel it off if you are careful, leaving not a trace. But you must be fast, as DDBs do not just manage to gob this stuff onto you somehow, but then do a full body lean to ensure its rubbed in nicely.
    that a human can slip up in drool, worse than a wet floor that's been washed
    that black trousers are a beacon for drool
    that in 5 weeks, my colleagues are now just saying "shelle, you've been drooled on" and pointing to somewhere on my leg.
    that having a DDB has increased my skills, in remembering stuff in one trip to take to car when dressed. As return to house is too drool making
    that a GSD can soak up more drool than a terry babies nappy, AND keep it in liquid form in his coat, in order redistribute it around the house. Team work!
    that all of us are now wearing dressing gowns indoors to protect our clothes.

    So if you see me, in my smeared and crusty clothes, looking like a Bukake party goer, wave and say hi to me
