CMYK and PMS: KatjaMouse: CMYK and PMS: Once the first Golden Retriever was bred they should have stop breeding any other dogs. What was the point?

Golden Retrievers are the dumb blondes of the dog world.


No that would be the Afghan. Goldens are among the smartest but thanks for your stupid opinion.


For one, Don't you talk to Katja that way.
For two, How can you measure "smart" in a dog? I mean, easy to train to do a task and willing to learn/eager to please are not the same as smart are they? It could be that a dog has no need for your affection or approval and they are smart enough to know that their meal ticket doesn't depend on performing for you so if you tried to train them to do a task they would have no motivation do to so. Would you call that dog dumb? How could you tell?

CSB time...
We had a dog that was in essence wild until she came to live with us. She was very hard to train to do anything. But if she wanted to be with you she would find a way. Through drywall, doors, over fences, under fences, through windows... her motivation was that she wanted to be with you. She did not want to roll over. Was she dumb??? I don't know. I know I never got her to roll over but she figured out three different gate latches and would come around to the front of the house and smile at us if we were out in the yard.
We were in college about 5 blocks from our place at the time we got her. She hyper bonded to my wife. She would escape the back yard and find her way to school, find the wifes car and sleep there until my wife got out of class.

So, was she dumb, smart, or just insanely motivated to be with us at all times and how do you know? How do you measure that?
I loved that dog. She was the most alpha biatch I have ever seen. Most dogs knew when she got on scene, they were her inferior. They didn't even try to start shiat with her. All she had to do was grumble and dog fights would stop, the combatants slinking away form her in opposite directions.

Miss you Osi.

END CSB

I've got one with a spotted coat. Definitely the smartest, most athletic, and most loyal dog I've owned!

JeffKochosky: Anastacya: quatchi: gadian: Useless without pics.  You'd be surprised the things Banana Joe Monkey can bring up in a google image search.  Or maybe you wouldn't.

Agreed. Had to put safe search on to find him.

[l1.yimg.com image 630x448]

He likes like a miniature 4 legged Eddie Munster to me but apparently the breed is called "affenpinscher"

Came to say the article is useless without pics, see that it has been covered. I still prefer basset hounds! Came in #2 in the hound group. I told my Norma and she snuffled, yawned, and went back to farting in her sleep. Goodtimes.

I had a basset hound growing up - her name was Clementine. Best, dumbest dog I ever had. She had a habit of walking off the side of our deck while on her lead.

The deck was on the second floor.

The lead wasn't long enough to let her hit the ground.

And she did this multiple times.

Best... dumbest dog.

/She could also sign her name.
//Well, technically, she walked around in a circle while pooping, but she never completed the full circle, so it was a "C".
///You're welcome.


Reminds me of my Boston Terrier Deeogee. She got hit in the head by a truck as a puppy, but lived although it did some brain damage. She was special and full of love, even if she ate two complete living room suites.

/Nothing like seeing a dog poop out upholstery foam.

so if I posted a picture of the wife holding our dog, could someone do the weird face combining effect and make them look all creepy? You know what, nevermind since I doubt her getting made fun of on Fark for the next 3 years would be a very good Valentine Gift

Banana Joe is an imposture. He's not a dog, he's a teenage Ewok.

I did a search for the breed and I suspect that some of these little dogs are working undercover to infiltrate the Great Cat Conspiracy like in the Cats and Dogs movies. They don't have quite the right nose, but otherwise don't need a lot of prosthetics to "pass" as a cat.

By the way, if you haven't seen the second C&D movie, Bette Midler is completely over the top as the villainous cat. That was some great casting. She basically plays the same manic character she usually plays, but as a gleefully insane cat with an even more demented owner and a very nervous pet mouse.

KatjaMouse: illannoyin: Whatever. The whole thing is fixed. If it was legit the Greyhound would always win.

/Best dog in the world
//Yeah, I happen to own one so what?

False. The best dog in the world is the Wire Hair Fox Terrier. And Westminster seems to back me up on this.


I guess you guys can't spell Standard Poodle. But that's OK. They can spell it for you.

If you have a "herd" instead of a "pack" of dogs, I think it's safe to assume you're feeding them too much.

I hope that is shortly after you rescued/adopted because that dog needs to be fed more.  Now.

My son and I saw this on the news last night.   I didn't know his name, or what they called him until after I had alread said, "He looks like a really tiny gorilla."  My son was already laughing when they said his name.  Then he fell off the couch.

Every Golden I've ever met reeked of desperation. The "oh likemelikemelikemelikeme..." attitude and desperate to do whatever it took to get their approval. Sure they can sit and stay but not because they're clever.

80% of Terrier breeds, though, they might not be among the smartest but they are the most clever. If they talked they'd probably give me a few snappy headline ideas. Terriers, sled dogs and standard poodles are the kinds of that you look at and you can tell the wheels are cranking. Goldens have the "likemelikemelikemelikeme OMG TENNIS BALL!" expression on all the time. All the time.

Maybe they're thinking of Yellow Labrador Retrievers.  Not the same dog, and Labs are kinda goofy as well.  Could be confusing to some.

So you're saying the terrier is smarter than a golden?  Now I know yous trolling!

And please, 80% of the golden's you have seen may have been dumb but that's hardly a number to stand by and spew "facts" about.

Sadly, that was one of the last pictures taken she was about 15 years old there.  She has since passed to the playground in the sky.

Thanks for checking in. I'm sorry she's gone, I still have my first dog. She's 8 but every time I think about her passing it makes me cry, and it hasn't even been a serious possibility yet.

I try to think that when she goes it will save another [new] dog's life.

The Golden Retriever isn't necessarily the "dumb blonde" of the dog world, BUT their registered names tend to be the Tammi (with an i) and the Tiffani (with an i) of the show dog world. Stereotypical white trash-esq names, if dogs had a concept of white trash. Don't believe me? Look up a catalog from a dog show. Their names are pretty awful.

I, on the other paw, do not have that problem:
www.infodog.com
That is J.L. Legacy's Gift of the Magi Gaspar. He was born on Christmas Eve in a litter of 3 boys. We called them after the 3 Wise Men. Who knew they had names?

Yes, I'm the sorry example of the breed human he's dragging around. He's a nicer dog than I am a handler. He has 4 points, whilst I have none.

Sounds like any untrained dog I've ever met. Yeh mine will bark at you until I tell him to stop, but the breed was made to be a ratter and watch dog.

[s7.postimage.org image 611x281]

HOLY CRAP!!!  He can turn from white to black in just two hours!!!  Amazing!

That's how he won. His Michael Jackson impression put him over the top.


And let's hope he stops with that. Or else next week he'll be caught in bed with a litter of puppies and in a couple months his veterinarian will accidentally kill him with an overdose of tranquilizers.

You have serious mental problems. Please seek help. Try to find a doctor who knows the difference between people and dogs.
