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.

You shouldn't even submit a "monkey dog" article that doesn't include pics. How cruel.

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

You both spelled "miniature schnauzer" wrong.

/it's the little yapper-type dog for people that don't like little yapper-type dogs.


Well, since mutts are the best dogs, you could probably compromise on all this. Wonder what a golden/greyhound/schnauzer cross would be like...

I'd vote for a good old Australian Cattle Dog.  Sturdy.  Obedient.  Mission focused.  The perfect dog with which to storm Poland.
