misslesleedavis1 I find dex to be more serious then my sheps. I dont know what it is but he exudes all work no fun. My goodness is he sensitive too, he can barely come back from a "mean" tone in my voice, I yelled at shigs one day in the basement and dexter promptly turned around and burried his head in his paws facing the wall. I had to pretty much buy him dinner and flowers to get him to look at me again. Dexter is so much not like my sheps who are down for everything and happy they bounce back quick.

Everyone loves him though, im so happy him and tyson get on now. Boys dont hold any grudges ot seems were as shiggs has a shigglers list.

misslesleedavis1 My border does a solid down stay for hours. I recall one night when his G ma came over and my son whipped open the door to say hello, dexters grandma means the world to him and he headed for the door in a flash, I was on the couch and said "down" he dropped like a fly and waited until his fave person ever came into the house. Border collies seem to have the drop and stay down built into them must be all the ups n downs of herding.

Sarah~ Lol yeah Xena has trouble with the "stay" command, I back up and she immediately follows like "ummm where are you going with my treat???"

Eko will stay for hours, he just loves doing whatever I ask him to. Sometimes I am really amazed by how obedient and in tune to me he is!

Chip18 GSD was my "funny" looking dog Pointy ears, whats up with that??Not to mention the pointy face??? Just all wrong for a Boxer/Bully guy.

But I'm not a fool the more I worked with him the more impressed I was! Door way thresholds was the first clue. My guys don't go out the front door without, my release period, end of story!

My first clue that my GSD was different, was the back door. My Bully guys I open the back door and boom there out. I did the same with my GSD open the back door so he could out out...he doesn't move,WTH??? Then it dons on me! I say OK and out he goes!

For him a threshold is a threshold, don't move without release! That was impressive!

Yes, I think they're very pretty I like most of the shepherds





A lot of the pit bull enthusiasts I know hate the HSUS and the SPCA, because of things like this. I agree disgusting.

Of course, when I hear the word "dog" an image of a GSD pops up in my brain. So I don't know if my feelings are simply against pit-type dogs.

That could be, I don't really like any of the spaniel breeds, I don't think they're very good looking. When I think dog I think of dogs that have a lot of presence, like GSDs, Dobes, Rotts, APBTs, mastiffs, etc. So I think it's not so much the appearance as the impression I get from the dogs that attracts me to them. When I see bully breeds I see a dog with power, energy, and I love how they are still so silly and friendly to people despite all those muscles.

Lol! Fair enough, I do love a soft dog. Even though they are hard they are great cuddlers just like GSDs!

Of course, when I hear the word "dog" an image of a GSD pops up in my brain. So I don't know if my feelings are simply against pit-type dogs. In fact, my sister's kids showed me their new Dictionary. (I had complained because their other one was so lame it didn't have the words we were trying to spell in it. So my sister agreed and got them a couple of real dictionaries.) Anyhow, I looked up dog and sure enough, there was photos of many dogs, but a GSD was one of them, so I approved of the dictionary.

As a matter of fact there was this nasty little staffie that kept beating my butt in Rally. If it was there when I got there, I would know that my best chance would only be red.

And I've hated the lot of them since then, LOL!
