It is interesting. I haven't noticed anything different with solid black dogs or gears anything. However I have heard things about problems with dogs that have bobbed tails.
I think for humans all black dogs may be a bit more intimidating, but wouldn't dogs go more for body posture than color? Except for maybe the dark body with light eyes or light eyed dogs? Haven't seen that one either but heard about possible issues with that. (Could go on a tangent about that but kind of off topic.)

It is now! And it's an interesting topic IMO...

Credit @WateryTart for resurrecting a good topic, though I admit to a certain reluctance to saying or typing that name...so, off topic or not I've got to ask, how you came up with THAT for a username??? I love it, don't get me wrong, it's just that my mother would have washed my mouth out with soap if she'd ever heard me say such a thing LOL!

The source film (from the mid 1970's) is really good for laughs, I think it was rated PG. Family friendly. Good stuff.

Google Monty Python. The peasants scene. You need the whole thing for context, but it's very funny. Also, I recently turned 37, and I fully plan on going around all year protesting, "I'm 37, I'm not old!"

Have you been to the play spammalot? Amazing

And to stay on topic for an old thread: this is from this weekend at boarding. Black dogs are expressive. He's not thrilled.

It is harder to get good photographs of black dogs. Had a Scottish Terrier some years ago. Really have to tweak the exposure to the background instead of the subject. Very counter-intuitive.

Yesss,yes they do! Despite how seriously anal, I was with Rocky and my automatic 5 foot stand off bit. I did find that "most people" kinda sorta did that anyway, keep a respectful distance???

Lack of feedback perhaps as ... most people could not "read him??" All they saw was calm, and he would just stand beside or step five feet away and wait if off leash. The odd thing was ... ex Military ... he luv'd those guys and they never had issues with him. Pretty much ... nothing to think aout for those guys with him???

Ex military were the only people that Rocky would actually approach of his on volition?? He greeted Ex Vets ... like they were long lost friends??? I'd not seen anything like that before, kinda cool though.
