  • My dog is an aeronautical engineer. He really understands the flight characteristics of frisbees.
  • Sits next to the wood stove, hides under the bed, farts during movies.
  • My dogs follow me everywhere, and they also shit in the yard. They haven't won any awards for it yet though. :)
  • She is obsessed with licking people. If you walk by her, she'll do a drive by licking!
  • Our dog is the best boy in the world.
  • He can roll over..............
  • Some great answers here...I especially am impressed with Aksafari's dog....holding his farts UNTIL a MOVIE is playing...that's some controlled planning! Hannah has her CGC and is a Search and Rescue dog. She finds LOST PEOPLE (or could do criminals, if I wanted to risk us both doing that type of tracking). She IS a tracker, as opposed to an Air Scenting dog. She goes after a SPECIFIC person, working off of their scent article, instead of my taking her to where the lost person MIGHT BE and then looking for ANY LIVE PERSON...the way and Air Scent dog would do. They used a lot of Air Scent dogs after 9/11, because it was a large space, and they just wanted to try and find ANYONE left alive in the mess. Tracking dogs you work ON LEAD (they will not stop for traffic) Air Scent dogs are usually worked OFF LEAD, the handler "grids out" an area for them to search in...big fields, buildings...you don't work them so much around where there can be traffic. With Trackers...if your Grandma or your child was lost, you would give us a pillow they slept on, or a piece of clothing...sock, tee shirt, sweater...Hannah would take a good sniff of it at the location the person was last known to be...and then she would start tracking them. She has successfully run a trail that was 18 days old. (and Hannah is not a Bloodhound, she shouldn't have been able to run a trail that was that old, but no body thought to tell her that, so she did it!) She has also tracked trails where the lost person either got into a car and was driven away, or drove off themselves. Cars are NOT air tight, even with the windows all rolled up! This is why a car will sink in water! So, even with the windows up, there are skin cells that will blow out of the car, and allow a good tracking dog to follow it! If the dog indicates that the car was driven onto a toll road or a freeway we would then load the dog and handler into a vehicle and drive along to each exit, where the dog would be taken out to smell and indicate "Yes, the trail is here...or NO...they weren't here at all" causing us to then drive on to the next exit. We train sometimes using NEGATIVE SCENT, (we have a scent article for someone who IS NOT and has not been where we are training), so that we can learn how our dogs respond if the person WAS NOT where we are asking the dog to track. We also train with some cadaver scent, not to teach our dogs to BE cadaver dogs (a whole different "game."), but so we will know their reactions if the dog suddenly scents our lost person...but dead, not alive. Of course, we always pray that IS NOT a reaction we will see, when we are actually seeking someone who is lost. Before, I used to work Nationally Certified Therapy dogs, but Hannah needed something stimulating to her body and mind in a different way than Therapy work would have provided her with...She is a nosy girl, wants to know "what's going on, what's up?!!" So this "GAME" suits her energy and smarts level just fine...She loves figuring out where "it" is and "playing FIND IT!" Here she is getting the scent...and that day we had to cross a very cold, stream with freaking slippery rocks that I was not thrilled about...she started but turned back and we crossed over a small bridge instead...I have crappy knees...then we went BACK to the stream on the other side, she picked up the trail again and we found our hider within about 5 to 8 minutes after that! When ever we have to cross water she always gives me a little look.."You do know I'm not a Retriever, right? I'm a Shepsky...by trade my breeds either pull a sleigh, track or herd other animals, I am NOT a Labrador! Ohhhh ok, the trail goes here, guess we will follow it! Ooooh icky wet stuff!" When she was first learning to "play the game" she was especially funny (and "prissy" too). If the hider was in a clump of bushes (and believe me, there are LOTS of clumps of bushes here in PA), especially if it was PRICKLY BUSHES...(lots of those here) she would find them, but stop outside of the prickly bushes, then look at me as if to say..."Ummmm, I know your NOSE SUCKS, but surely you can SEE THEM in there, I smell and see them in there...don't you? Do I really have to go into that mess and touch them in order for you people to know that they are right THERE? Sheez...are you BLIND?...it's icky in there!" Now, of course, she's addicted to THE GAME, and dives right in! Some other tracking shots...and Hannah waiting her turn to go...watching one of the Bloodhounds on the team leaving....she's pretty hot to get her harness on and take her turn! Lastly...Hannah NOT working! Click on photos to make them bigger!
  • Well, mine just won second prize at a games evening!
  • Haha =) Mine provides nutrients for the lavender bush growing on top of her. So proud!
  • They don't like to brag.
  • She lays in my lap,carries around a beanie baby chihuahua, follows me everywhere.She also never ever talks back.
  • Chases rats, frogs, flies and moths. Sniffs out eggs (and eats them) Challenges the huge dog next door and empties a room in a flash.
  • Our FAMILIE'S dogs are all very talented as well. They excel at landscape maintenance, they fertilize and water plants, dig new holes we could plant small trees in, chase off rabbits, deer and wild pigs that try to reap what we've sown. . They all four make sure whoever comes by feels real welcome by barking their welcome at whoever drives by at the top of thier lungs. If the driver doesn't take the hint, they chase after him to invite him to turn around and come on in. . My personal dog also keeps me from having to go swimming in October by retreiving ducks, is a hug therapist, helps keep my hands clean by slobbering on them when I try to pet him, and he helps wash the dishes by doing the pre dishwater rinsing. . If he weren't solid black, he would be the best dog food representative for commercials in the world, because he does these incredible dances no matter what food is on offer. . Oh yeah, and he ALSO farts and then makes us all laugh when he loks at his back end to see who/what did that.
  • My dog makes me laugh and is a champion at my house...+
  • My dog can beat up your dog.
  • i dont have a dog, i have a box called Colin
  • Snores and farts and is happy as hell.
  • My dog is a cat and she sleeps. Sometimes she eats. And now and then she poops. Neatly, in a box. She's a good dog.
  • My dog got lost.*sighs* He was a the coolest Chawawa I ever met.(I usually hate small dogs) but he was quiet and friendly. He looked like this http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/images18/ChihuahuaViansBigMacAttackMac3.JPG I loved my little buddy and miss him much. His name was Dinner. As per what he did. He was a good door bell, and brought joy and love to me and my kids.
  • All over the neighbors lawn. +5
  • He calms me.
  • Mine looks cute as a rescue boxer. She is following orders and hopes your boxers continues to win. +5
  • My taxes.
  • Loves me unconditionally :) +6
  • My dog is a family loving pit bull. He will eat you if you are not family.
  • My boxer is a loveable ball of energy and chaos. She never sleeps and if she does snores and farts. And shes given me a few good runs around the block chasing her when shes out to go to bathroom. She also does this weird thing with her tongue, her jaw is short but her tongue is long so a little of her tongue is ALWAYS sticking out. Looks slightly retarded but darbys a good dog.
  • Three of them kill the grass by the driveway (that's where the females tend to go)... Not sure if that's a GOOD thing... Three of them are "black liquors" (if you catch my reference ... Black Lab mixes). One of them (rat/spitz mix) is GREAT at watching or listening for anyone in the driveway, and has this ability to drive the other dogs into a frenzy when my wife gets home. That last one also sleeps between my wife and me, grumbling loudly if I don't pet HIM, but reach over to touch HER. Two of the others sleep by the bed on my wife's side, and one sleeps against her legs. Two of the females fight for space around my wife on the couch, with the rat/spitz sleeping in front of her on the couch, on her, or on the back of the couch above her. Here are prior questions I've answered, including pix in one: We have 4 dogs (3 black lab mixes and 1 rat-terrier/spitz mix) and 1 cat (indoor). (Pics here http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/2445803 , how they were named here http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/2271599 ). HERE'S how well they "listen" to me - http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/3520242 , and how they act - http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/3776893 .
  • He loves me unconditionally......Which in my opion is better than having good credentials. I just want a happy, sweet, and loving family pet....not a trained bomb sniffer or anything.
