Never in my life

#1 Post by JNG » Thu Oct 10, 2019 11:25 am

I was walking my vicious 22 lbs Shih Tzu, when we came on a fella with a Akta. Well though my great strength I was controlling Louie!
The fellow and I talked and had a great time talking and we were both vets.
I just don't understand racism.

Thank God Louie did not get a hold of his dog!!

My erstwhile 24 pound Boston Terror, er, Terrier could kick just about any other dog's butt....Size of Dog v. size of fight in the dog.

Certain dog breeds are funny, We used to have Border Collies, now my wife has Pekingese, both breeds are biased towards "dogs" They both recognize their own kind and get along with them but can't stand other dogs, it's strange.

Our male peke thinks he weighs 100 pounds, utterly fearless around dogs 10 times his size, gave a thumping to a big Rotwieller one time that could have eaten him in 3 bites, lol

It's all in the attitude....

Shirley's dog Rebel, cross Chinese Crested / Pomeranian, chases squirrels and foxes out of the garden, he goes nuts when I pick up an air rifle, thinking we're going hunting.
He once scared off a hugh Ridgeback in the park, I thought I was going back to Shirley's with only his lead. :shock: he's 12 now and slowing down.

I had a Jack Russell mix that would take on any dog she saw and win. She also killed a couple of copperheads and a cottonmouth. Never once got bitten. Terriers of any type are willing to fight.

I have a half Chihuahua half Toy Poodle (I think). He wandered up a few years ago nearly starved and dirty. He adopted me as his human.

I call him Old Man Brody....he's five pounds of wolverine and werewolf when he's mad...I'm talking about a whirling fang filled shaggy tornado. :shock:

We've got a Morkey (combo Maltese and Yorkshire Terrier) who's all of about 9½ lbs and he thinks he's a guard dog. Our Silkshire (Silky and Yorkshire Terrier) is stockier and at 14 lbs very strong for his size but he's a lover. Both are a hoot and definitely mamma's boys.

My JRT was a killing machine! He would kill mice to coons. He would do his best to kill cats, oh if only he could climb trees! He treed a small bear once, I left him under that bear for 4 hours. He barked until he was hoarse ! And yes he would take on ANY dog not in his pack!

My dog that just passed barked hard at black.
When he was about six or seven months old he had a close encounter with a bear. After that everything black got barked at. Black dogs, people in black clothes, black people... He never did see very well. :o

My wife little Maltese thought he was a 100lb dog, and would spaz and go for any larger dog that offended him.

He was out for a walk with the wife one day and took on a shepard mix a few houses up the street and got his bad little self killed.

Dogs.

All the dogs I have owned claim lineage from the best 30 breeds in the district. I like mongrels as they are dirt cheap, resistant to disease, dont get genetic disorders, they also seem to live to advanced ages. One black dog that could best be described as "fat labrador body with smaller terrier head" or "Terrestrial seal" seemed to lose every fight he got into. But he must have had skills in other areas as there was a hell of a lot of younger pointy headed seal like dogs in the district. He was also an excellent mouser and thief, routinely appeared with various items, even foodstuffs like hams he must have taken from other folks houses. I'd try to find owners for some of it to apologize but gave up eventually. He had been shot with pellet guns, kicked by a horse, run over, he turned up at a local school and even visited the circus when it was in town. It took heartworm to finally kill him, RIP Zues, 1989.
