    lol i think the modern term for "anthropomorphism" has been dubbed "furry/fur"
    just over weekend there was "confurgence" the furry convention in melbourne.

    you obviously never left a group of entire bitches together and gone out for a few hours......
    lets just say they were very sore and sorry for themselves.... except the the bitch that won... lol

    Interesting discussion
    I've only had female dogs in my life. Always thought when I got my own it would be a little dude...
    I feel like the female dogs I've known are more stubborn

    I wonder if a dogs sex has anything to do with the way G tries to keep my OH and I apart
    If we're laying on the couch, she'll do everything she can to get between us and keep me for herself
    Hugs me goodbye before work, there's G on the floor trying to get my attention
    Sitting down at the park... G squeezes between us
    Possessive little thing.

    Been doing this for years and never a scratch. I wouldnt dare leave my boys together or there would be some blood. Made that mistake once and it required a trip to the vet. My bitches love being together and play with each other all the time.

    Guess it depends on the dog, the order they were added to the pack, their personality etc.

    I do also love my boys although this thing they have going with each other is a pain.

    The 'on heat thing is easy fixed'. Female dogs that I have owned are pretty straightforward. They want to work, eat and sleep, are very keen to train with me. Their passion is working and eating and lying close to me when I am in the house. Cant be more simple than that.

    One of my boys is the dog I have more trouble working out. He can take offense more quickly when training so I am more careful with him so he doesnt get sooky and refuse to work. My girls and other boy are very confident and keen and dont take things personally.

    I used to have a preference for males. With a belief that females were:
    resource gaurders of owners/toys/best bed
    menstruating all over the floor twice a year till speyed
    smaller than males
    absolute bitches at times

    These days, with far more experience of living with my first ever female dog
    i reckon i was spot on!

    Gracie is obviously female - but I need a bit of help with you and your OH - to work out the message she is giving you both ! But I think you already know !

    The last 2 pups I had were 1 male - ball crazy - and 1 female that couldn't give a rats about that sort of thing.

    If I had my tennis racket - I was the best ball thrower ever for the male pup ! If I didn't have it - pup would put the ball down in front of any male person that was available - without fail ! So what was he saying ? As far as him with a group of people - he always was found chatting up the ladies !

    If we had people around for a visit - if I couldn't find the female pup - all I had to do was check the laps of any males that were there ! Yep - there she was happy as anything getting all the attention and whining and grizzling about how tough it was to be a little brown girl pup living where she was !

    Maybe it is more to do with our own preconceived ideas - or is it ?

    I like bitches - more belly to rub.

    Apart from that - haven't noticed any difference with training - they all ignore me when they feel like it.

    LOL my bitches must be different from other bitches. I see no so called bitchiness at all, they are all too obsessed with working and when not working, playing or sitting on my feet. They dont care about the best beds, they seem to prefer cool tiles or concrete. Resouce guarding isnt allowed and nobody seems to be too much interested in doing it anyway.

    Love my girls and my boys, but the girls are more focussed workers more quickly. The boys tend to be a little distracted for longer and are also more likely to get distracted by other bitches.
