Hide-and-go-sock

Our boy, Lucky, is 99% wonderful to have around. Except for the bewitching hour. (That's when my husband and I go totally mindless for awhile before bedtime--reading or watching really stupid TV.) Just when we have gotten deliciously comfortable, Lucky goes into action--pawing us, nosing, us, and wo...

Takes one to know one?

I am so fascinated by these 'behavior" posts...it's like finding long-lost relatives of my Lucky boy. What I thought were just my pooch's quirks seem to be signs of the typical Brittany! :D How about this one? Lucky sure hones in on his own kind. The first time we took him to a doggie "bed and break...

Re: Rarely barks

:D Ha ha, I loved reading about all of your talented Brits' barking improvisations--the sleeping "woof-woofs," the responses to sirens, foxes, approaching strangers, impatience for dinner...and I really had to laugh about the beagle-Brit mix. Our son thought he was getting an apartment-sized pooch w...

Empathy...

I was recently with a sweet group of ladies who were chatting happily about their love of golden retrievers. Humph, I thought. do they know nothing about Brits? Over my lifetime I've lived with border collies, terriers, Heinz 57s, two Irish setters, probably twenty-five cats, and two Brits (never mo...

Rarely barks

I'm new to the discussion board, so please forgive me for throwing all of my questions out here at once. :oops: Our Brit rarely barks (my husband LOVES that about him!) and just yesterday I discovered posts here by his original owner (amazing discovery!) who noted that he didn't bark except for what...

Re: Smiling

Ah, the "submissive grin" must be what our obedience trainer recognized. When I first got Lucky (at about 6 years old) and took him to classes, the trainer often placed us between the more aggressive dogs to keep the peace. I have another question, but I'll start a new topic. :wink:

Smiling

Do any of you have a Brit that smiles? Our dog is nine years old and has smiled since we got him about three years ago. He does it when whenever we come home and when he meets a new person. (He never "smiles" at another dog.) Our vets and obedience trainer have all told us that smiling is genetic, a...

Re: What the dogs do while I'm working

Your picture of Charm gave me the best laugh I've had all week. My dog, Lucky, sleeps just like that sometimes...and I can always tell that he is feeling uber content and secure when he does that. Gotta love those canines peeking through the lips when they're upside down! :lol:
