Just thought it'd be interesting to see what everyone likes and dislikes about their dogs.

With Ozzy, I like:
His small size - I can take him lots of places.
He's quiet, especially for being a Pom.
He's a pretty good ambassador for his breed.
He walks well on his leash.
He can always make me smile, even when I don't think I can.
He's taught me patience in a way I thought I'd never be able to learn.
He makes sure I wake up in the morning without barking.
He's the perfect sized playmate for my ferret.
He doesn't eat a lot of food.
He doesn't leave big poops. lol

However, I dislike:
His small size - the teasing and lack of protection he's able to provide kinda sucks.
His bark - although he hardly barks, when he does, I wanna claw my ears off of my head.
It's hard to find toys for him sometimes, due to his tiny size.
He's got a small bladder, so he's gotta pee a LOT.

I love how playful Zoe is, intelligent, quick to learn, awesome with my kids, a cuddler, loving, goofy, persistent, and loyal

I hate how reactive she is when we have people over, the fact she wants to eat small dogs, and that she wakes me up by pouncing all 90 lbs of herself right on me:(

Max:
I love how he tilts his head when I talk... trying to understand every word.
I love how he will climb onto the bed in the morning for some pets, and if I say "closer." he will crawl up the bed like GI Joe.
I love how he nudges me and runs to the door so I will open it, and he can run out and get his Kong on a rope.
I love how the fur feels right behind, and under his ear.
I love how how bright his eyes are when he looks at me.... full of love.

I hate how he wants to be an alpha dog on our walks and will "huff and puff" at some other dogs.
I hate how he walks on the tops of my feet more than I walk on the bottoms!!

Sadie
I love how she hides her rawhides so that Max will try to find it.... and then steals his.
I love how she looks in the sun.... very red.
I love how she is such a good girl when it is time for her eye drops.
I love how she feels she is my protector.

I hate how she dribbles water all over the floor everytime she drinks.
I hate how scared she is during thunderstorms.... poor girl.

(I could go on...and on... but won't. LOL)

Hondo, thing I love most: I love the way he looks at me. His eyes are so deep, like an old soul. I end up talking to him carrying an entire conversation. He replies by the look in his eyes.

Thing that gets on my last nerve (there isn't anything I hate, and I can tolerate this) he has to be in the middle of anything & everything I do. I can't even look under a bed and he attempts to crawl under there to see if he can find it first.

Dakota
I love how she follows me everywhere. I love it when I say it's night, night time in the evening and she follows me upstairs to our bedroom. I love it when she barks to tell me she wants to go outside and play. I love it when she's walking in front of me in the house and keeps looking behind her to see if I'm still following her. I love it that she has such a great personality and is so friendly with animals, children, neighbors, friends etc. I love it when she stands on the stair landing in the house looking out the huge window and barks and growls furiously when someone she doesn't know approaches the door. I love her intelligence. I love it that she's a black GSD even though I wasn't too sure I would like a black GSD. Oh geez, I could go on and on..........

I don't like it when we're outside playing outside and she takes off around the side of the house to eat the kitten food. Sometimes I don't like it when she barks to go play and I'm busy trying to do something else.

Jackie
We haven't had Jackie too long, but here's what I like so far. I love her playfulness. I love it that even though she's a land shark, she seems to be much more gentle than Dakota was at her age. I love it that she likes to cuddle!! I love her intelligence. I love her unique look. I love it that she sleeps under my desk and I can rub her tummy with my feet. I love it that she kennels up so easily and never makes a fuss or cries. I love her little bark (which she's doing right now :)).

I don't like it that she tries to eat cat poop when I take her in the yard to play. I don't like it that she hides in the ginger in the yard and I can't reach her. Meanwhile, she's in there eating cat poop!! I don't like it that she seems to want to be a counter surfer.

I LOVE MY GSD'S!!!! :happyboogie:

-is such a fast learner.
-forgives my MANY mistakes with her in obedience class (i get confused so easily)

What a nice thread. :)

My Smitty dog:

Love-
His goofy happy personality.
That he has what I call a good radar, if someone approaches in a friendly open manner he's friendly. If someone acts suspicious or 'off' he gets alert.
That he loves children.
That he watches over and protects if necessary our 15 YO female mutt puppy
His looks, I think he's beautiful.
His fearlessness.

Dislike-
When chasing squirrels his selective hearing kicks in.
.
.
.
.....and that he will only live into his teens, dogs always get old and die too soon.......I can't imagine my life without him.

I like almost everything about Bianca. I love her size, she's a little over-sized at 26" tall but I love the larger Shepherds and she's large without being huge.
I love how great she is with my cats.
I love (usually) how she acts towards people, how she is very friendly/loves people if I tell her someone is ok and yet is still very alert and a good 'watchdog' and seems to know when to be one.
I love her looks, pretty black-and-red color and her big ears and head (she gets a lot of compliments on her looks!)
I love her intelligence.

There are only a few things I don't like. The main thing is her leash reactivity with other dogs. Although her reactivity has improved about a thousand percent from when I got her, once in a while she will still bark at another dog on leash or will lift her lip when a strange dog gets in her face.
I dislike the white/gray fur she is getting on her muzzle (she's too young to get old!)
I also don't really like the texture of her fur. I just prefer dogs with softer fur generally (I was going to get a long-coated GSD originally...)
