Probably should've started at 30 paces and worked from there. Thanks, OG =)


you're welcome. I think a lot of things can be bred into dogs, like bird dogs having a thing for birds instinctively, retrievers for waterfowl liking water, a hound wanting to bay [important] ... etc. But instinctively associating gunshots as a good thing? I don't think any dog has that, it has to be done with training, and getting gun-shy a likely event if no training.

This is my dog Oliver, a Havanese.



It is a rare breed that is known for very long hair. Here at the Wizard house nobody has the patience to brush and comb him so we keep it pretty short.

The breed is also known to be smart, good watchdogs, although at the expense of being rather high maintenance and noisy. They have a lot of short-term energy but are not good for running with because they run out of steam in about five minutes, I figure due to the short legs.

Beautiful face, a good dog. A loving
companion, you are lucky. A world
without dogs would be a dreadful
place.

Still not ready, but doesn't stop me from window shopping =p

Man, but there are a lot of pits in the pound. I'd say easily half in the website I check. Another large chunk are all ankle biters, mostly chihuahua (or whatever that dumb thing was that Hilton used to tote around in her purse). Nothing has really jumped out at me, until today...



Maybe someday. Maybe soon =/

I've had big dogs, small ones are better. Big
dogs eat a lot, and drool all over the dash.
They can't sit on your lap and take up too
much room on the bed. My dog is 24 pounds,
not too big or too small.

Different strokes. I too hate drooling dogs, but Coonhounds aren't typically droolers. I also don't sleep with pets nor can I sit still long enough to have anything on my lap.

I also don't think she's "big". Ace's dog is big. Your dog is small. This is just a dog. Something I won't kill if I fall on it, something that can get in a truck by itself, something that can handle my 6 hour fishing hikes.

Interview on Tuesday. Que sera sera.
