My dogs arent perfect...far from it. But thats why i love them so much. They have character.....no robot slave dogs for me. That would be boring.
For one example ...'Tucker time', and the 'my dog bit me' thread got me thinking about this.
Both my boys sit and watch me make their dinners at the same time (Bronx drooling like a leaking tap) but during this time Mojo HATES to be touched or patted.
"Dont touch me, just make my dinner Dad !"
When the bowls go down the race is on !!!...even though they are seperated i'm sure they scoff it down so the other one cant steal thier food.
I cant drag them away from thier bowls and if i reach for the bowl i get bumped out of the way if i'm to slow....but they dont bite,...well they dont bite me anyway.
Another example...Mojos recall sux.... stubborn breed and poor trainer (me) is the blame. Bronx is always there...like a jealous stalker who cant live without me LOL !!
Theres a few more that would loose them points if they where getting scored but ya know what ???? I dont really care....as long as my dogs are not a threat to anyone else i'm happy to live with my dogs Quirks....somtimes it makes me laugh....other times it drives me crazy.
My dogs are my mates. Imagine if your human mates did exactly what you told them and didnt think independently ??
Each to thier own i guess but how boring that would be !!
What are your dogs "Faults" that you are happy to live with ?? or do you prefer your dogs to wait and obey your every command ??
(Flame suit on !!)
