Thread: Why You Love Your Chosen Breed.

    I have been thinking about what is really at the core of my obsession with Tibetan Mastiff as I love all animals & dogs have always topped the list but when I met my first TM in the flesh it was different & in a weird sort of way like finding something I'd always been searching for in my previous dogs. They have this ability to make you feel so special as they just aren't overly fussed by human attention yet they will choose 1 person to attach themselves too. This choosen person is generaly the only person the TM cares to try & please in anyway really. Instead of jumping all over you or licking you a TM would rather sit on your foot & lean their body into yours or come & lay their heads in your hands or lap when your sitting down. All my TM's have had an infinity for youngsters & Bubba loves babies of all species. For huge male dog he can be so tender with young pups(& they don't have to be his pups) & the chickens would always hang around Bubba for the first few days after hatching a clutch. It was not unusual to see Bubba sound asleep under his favourt tree with mother hen scratching away beside him & chicks all around & even on him. Yet the other side of Bubba was as a fierce guardian that had no trouble dealing with foxes, wild dogs & the like. Not all TM's are of the livestock guardian temperment though & to date Bubba has been my only 1. They are all great farm & family guardians & thier abilty to tell the difference between friend & foe never ceases to amaze me. Our dogs are used to custmers coming & going all day buying hay & will greet all happily but once the gate is shut for the night it's another story.
    Sorry to go on so much but these dogs have really taken a hold of my heart & soul & I know I will never be without 1. No other dog can make my heart swell like Bubba dose when he comes & lays his head in my lap, leans against me & sighs.
    They really are unlike any other breed I've ever had anything to do with.

    What can I say about huskies? they are smart, independent, full of go-go juice, they live in the moment, they are not clingy, but they love their family, they love to be around people (just not curling up with you), they are loyal, they are full of expressions, everyone of them is completely unique. Those eyes, that fur.

    I could go on and on, but the main thing is when they do want a cuddle, when they come to you tail wagging and eyes smiling you feel like the most special person in the world

    Oh god, me too! I LOVE it when my dogs are sleeping with their mouths slightly open, so you can see the little front ones. Dog teeth, puppy breath and puppy bellies, NAWWWW
