YOU CAN'T PEE LIKE A PUPPY IF YOU WANT TO RUN WITH THE BIG DOGS

A DOG TEACHES A BOY FIDELITY, PERSEVERANCE AND TO TURN AROUND THREE TIMES BEFORE LYING DOWN Robert Benchly


How can anyone not love dogs after watching Lassie, Ren Tin Tin or Homeward Bound.  Yes, Chance was always into trouble but he was so lovable, huh?  

A news article today listed dogs that are bad for families with small children. I consider each of these named dogs to be exceptional.  There are reasons, however, why they may not work out well with young children.

The 12 dog breeds are Weimaraner, Rottweiler, Akita, Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Husky, Bull Mastiff, Australian Shepherd, Shih Tzu, Jack Russell Terrier, Pekingese, Chinese Shar-Pei and Chow Chow.

THE MORE I SEE OF MEN THE MORE I LIKE DOGS Roger Caras

SIBERIAN HUSKY
Look at him, rolling onto his back for you to rub his belly!  What could possibly be wrong with this beauty? Energetic and resilient, he will dominate and revert back to being a wolf.  He will cause havoc in the home and with his strength, he will be a danger for children.  He will do good pulling a dog sled.

I AM FOND OF PIGS.  DOGS LOOK UP TO US.  CATS LOOK DOWN ON US.  PIGS TREAT US AS EQUAL Winston Churchill


BEAGLE
One of the most popular dogs in America, I've owned and hunted beagles.  Loving and thoughtful, what could possible be wrong with them?  Nothing if you want your dog to "take off" looking for a scent to chase.  If you want that, buy a beagle.  If not, you're going to be chasing a beagle.

ONE REASON A DOG CAN BE SUCH A COMFORT WHEN YOU ARE FEELING BLUE IS THAT HE DOESN'T TRY TO FIND OUT WHY


Dogs can be so good for kids!  They are a constant source of unconditional love, can help teach responsibility and cooperation.  As important as training the dogs is to also train the children about the dog. For families, the AKC recommends the Bulldog, Beagle, Newfoundland, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Bull Terrier and Boxer.

MINIATURE SCHNAUZER
People won't listen to advice about which dog to get.  I explained to a friend that the best dog in the world was a Standard Schnauzer.  She should not, however, buy one of the cute little Miniature Schnauzers, who bark and bite.  She bought a cute little Miniature Schnauzer and then offered me $300 if I'd train it because of it's bad habits.  I didn't.

GUNNER, MY GIANT SCHNAUZER
Gunner, my Giant Schnauzer, is my latest  big dog.  He is so loving, more so to my wife, Julie, or our house keeper, Donna.  He is by far the best GUARD DOG I have had.  The problem?  As that breed of dog does, he decides who is good and who is bad and acts accordingly.  We have had to replace the storm door twice when someone came that Gunner thought would be harmful to us. 

THE REASON A DOG HAS SO MANY FRIENDS IS THAT HE WAGS HIS TAIL INSTEAD OF HIS TONGUE


WALT'S COURAGEOUS JAKE CD
My favorite dog was Jake.  I bought him as a 7 week old puppy.  Jake went everywhere I went.  He made two canoe expeditions with me. Once at night in the wilderness, he got between me and a danger I couldn't see, growled and bared his teeth.  He entertained me chasing mice in the wood pile.  He came in first place in each obedience class. He competed in obedience trials in three states and came in first place every time excepting the time I stepped on his tail on the long down and I GOT CHARGED 5 POINTS for handling error.  Still, he came in 2nd place.  Broke my heart when I lost him to cancer.

KIMBERLY AND BELLA
A match made in dog heaven is my daughter's dog Bella, a Havanese.  Bella fits right in with the family of two young children.  She is beautiful, bright, funny and loving.  She has been to obedience school.  And, nothing moves to which she will not alert you.  She loves me and knows I bring her treats.

The Havanese was bred as a companion dog to Cuban aristocracy in the 1800's.  They have been named "Velcro Dogs" because they stick so closely to you.  They have excelled in many canine careers from Circus Performers to assisting the handicapped.
