For p.devi



Now make his head a little thinner, color him brindle (stripes of brown and black), and take away the ridege of hair which grows from the tail towards the head on Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and that's my dog.

What you need is a lion. If you have a Rhodesian Ridgeback, you have a lion hunter.

I wanted one of those for years and years. I ended up with one from an entirely different continent--and Australian Shepherd (and, after she shuffled off, a mutt)

I love dawgs

See, my last dog was an Australian Shepherd, a red merle. Wanted another one and ended up with a mutt. And I'm not sure how to explain the lion in the backyard shed to my husband. It's my pet's pet!

(BTW, I love that an Australian Shepherd is neither Australian nor a shepherd, but a Basque Collie. Australia sounds so much more exotic, don't you know.)

Why, that is indeed a handsome dog. (OK, really? Dogs like that scare the hell out of me. In my formative years, my only experiences with dogs were the snarly guard dogs in the neighborhood. No one seemed to have friendly pet dogs.)

Suisan said...

Yeah, some dogs like that scare the hell out of me too. It all depends on the dog.

My dog's only fierce around tennis balls if he's swimming with other dogs. Just a teeny bit too competitive. If he's on land, he just runs faster, but in the water, if he thinks the other dog's gonna get a tennis ball, he tried to climb on top of them while growling. Not pretty.

Now we only go swimming with preselected doggie friends who swim slower than he does. See where acting like a two year old will get you? Do they ever listen to me? No.

As an adult, I encountered the beagle. Now that's a dog I fell in love with. But how charming you make your dog's antics sound, even though he'd probably terrify me if I were around him. :-)
