Would be a **** of a lot harder to send them to the shelter if they were capable of sending you on a guilt trip in your native tongue.

My girl is still young (8 months) but I have never had such an easy puppy...ever, and she has high drive. She only has two bad things...she is a puller and she has coprophagia. The pulling we are working on so I am dealing (my arm isn't happy when we walk though) but the poo eating is really really really gross. If it was her own she ate it would be a simple fix, but it is everyone elses. I can't let her play without her finding a nice pile to "clean up" Strangely she has a strong leave it except for this. Anything else her nose goes close to that I don't like...leave it, she comes back to me. Poo...leave it, looks at me, eats it really fast, then comes to me! UGH!

I feel you on the poo eating. I went through that with Raina when she was younger. Only, she would only eat her own or cat poo if available. I solved the problem by always being near her when she is outside. She goes on a pretty regular schedule now as she is five years old now so I know when she is going to poop. I scoop quickly and she forgets about it. I check the yard in the morning before I let her out for the cat stuff as they always use the same spot under one tree so it is easy to find the pile they scratch up. My vet suggested putting hot sauce on it and leaving it there to see if that would help but since she licked the hot sauce off the lawn chair arm she chewed on as a puppy I didn't think the hot sauce would work - she would probably think I was flavoring it for her!

Dierks

I wish Dierks' shedding wasn't so out of control.
I've become very proficient with the vacuum though.

He's almost 7 and has been the most wonderful dog I've ever been around.

I wish he wouldn't have had to grow up in a puppy mill. Otherwise it would be nice if he could communicate in a more human or telepathic manner so it'd be easier to understand each other.

Riley is 8 months old and has a very short attention span. She is gogogo all the time and nothing hardly keeps her attention more than 5 minutes. I've spent hundreds in toys to interest her and she tires of them so quickly.

Kala would be her slight toy aggression she has towards other dogs (who aren't going to take her toy) otherwise she is pretty darn near perfect.
