I asked Milo and he snorted and farted. I have no idea what that means though. He does that whenever I say something to him.

And you were still conscious to post after that! No winds are worse than than what a dog passes!

Our Rotti once passed a massive, rank, wind and we thought we would die; the dog raised his nose, took a sniff and promptly left the room. You could almost hear his thought, "Man is stinks in here!"

Just had a run in with the neighbor's Australian cattle dog tiger. Well I should say "run away". Wrong thing to do with a cattle dog. He quickly went to the stop, drop,roll and scream for help. Poor tiger just wanted to play. Scared the he'll out of him when Milo screamed like a bitch.

@Theoriginalpacman were you never able to revive the old account & name, you know, the original one. You look like a newbie here with a join date of Sept 2019.

I had a client in Westchester County NY who had a massive dog, not knowing the breed, the dog having a history of violence, attacking and mauling a 14 year old girl. The court ordered that the dog be juiced or removed from the county. The client opted to purchase a secondary home in adjoining Greenwich County rather than having to juice it.

Before being hired to paint the Greenwich residence I had been briefed on protocol if in the event the dog should breach the cordoned off areas where I was working, being advised to carry mace or pepper spray. I was told that the dog had been maced several times by law enforcement in several incidents and that just an empty spray bottle would keep the dog at bay just from recognition. The doorways had been sealed off with clear heavy gauge polycarbonate sheeting screwed into the casings on the opposing side of the passageways.

When working on the opposing doorways the dog kept taking running lunges at the barriers. It reminded me of the scene from” I am Legend” where Will Smith was in the lab and the mutants where running into the glass trying to breach it. It was also pretty frightening.

The last day when wrapping up the project the dog was in enclosed in an outdoor pen with its trainer. My co-worker and I were carrying the last load of equipment to the truck, being halfway from the house to the truck when my co-worker stopped, freezing in fear, motioning with his eyes and softly whispering that the dog had breached the pen and was tearing a$$ right towards us. The dog had a roll of yellow barrier tape clenched in its teeth, the yellow tape trailing as he was running at me. Instinctually rather than exhibiting fear as the dog aggressively came at me I grabbed the roll of barrier tape from within its mouth and started wrestling the dog, dislodging the roll of tape from his fangs. The dog immediately dropped on all fours and started whimpering like a child. I tossed the roll, where the dog then chased after it, and engaged in a friendly game of toss and retrieve while my coworker managed to load the truck. The trainer made his way over in disbelief that I was able to establish dominance over the beast. I was honestly terrified when the dog came at me, not knowing how to react, especially when knowing the dog’s history of having mauled someone and attacking others as well.

I’ve never heard of a Pug described as being massive.

I honestly thought this story was going to end with you using the caution tape to tie the dog up!

Default Does the painting industry have a Pug problem?

I’m a blue nose pitbull owner...never had a pug but their cute AH!

Tierra come aw/ me anytime she’s able & breaks hearts when she leaves cuz she’s such a love bug. Mikes met her actually!

She’s the first pure breed I’ve ever had & has had the most issues. One of the worst being an incessant chicken allergy-In the pic of her layin on the drop cloths under a piece I was workin on u can see hive bumps down her back..its from eating chicken poop while our girls were out free ranging. So gross.

She’s also started to show signs of hip issues *tear

Great coloring! Some of the nicest dogs I know are pits. Unfortunately, I know a few that are really scary.

She's amazingly friendly, super smart, and great with the kids but very high energy and requires a lot of attention.

Here she is waiting for me to throw a tennis ball. She's obsessed with them, I'm pretty sure I could throw that ball all day long and she'd never get tired of fetching it and catching it mid air.

I have 2 springers... one is a field springer (he has 3/4s of his tail) and will 'point' on occasion, tho i dont hunt... hes a runner... he can run full speed, for a solid 500' winded, but can turn around run another 500' no problem... hes 12 yrs old. He also LOVES water.. pond, lake, stream, river, puddle... he is in it... Once he discovered the hose doesnt have hot water, he stopped rolling around in puddles LOL

My other springer, shes a show springer, has a nub. shes a couch potato. likes the summer walks as long as shes on the leash til the house is out of sight (she will run back to the house if not on a leash and wait for me)

then she will run and sniff (we live in the sticks, leashes arnt common out here)

However if I am working in the yard shes never more than 50' away... shes a ***** for attention, belly rubs, and is fat... (she prefers the comforts of the bed, couch recliner, sleeps all day...) vs my older dog who isnt a fan of cushy, and doesnt stop moving... ever... at night his butt wiggles wildly as he dreams..... hes under weight even tho he gets 3 cups a day vs her 1.5 cups a day.

both are super happy, friendly, family dogs... however...

I have been in situations with both my dogs where things became heated, and both dogs have come to my defense. The happy goes from happy, to 'watching' to stop /circling watching, to tail down and teeth...growling and barking (not friendly barking)

So while they are very well mannered, great with kids, and over all high strung couch potatos that love everyone, they are 110% behind you if they feel their human, is in any sort of danger.... for instant, my girl dog was my sisters, who I sort of adopted, she will defend me, if my sister and I get into an argument, if my sister pulls alpha dog rank on her, all hell breaks loose and i have to stop my girl dog from getting viscious. this isnt a bad trait... it sounds bad, but you want your dogs, to protect those you love, while at the same time you dont want them attacking other family members...

but in every situation I have been in, in the last 12 years, even with my dogs' faults, Im much happier to have them by my side, than be alone.

keep laser pointers away from your puppy... my boy dog follows shadows, the sun reflection off the mirror of my truck/back door of my house... hes totally brain damaged... but even so... when things are about to get real, hes right there... he gives 'the look'

Scary dogs come from scary owners. Worst dog I ever owned was an adopted chihuahua...that thing would bite anyone who moved fast.

I LOVE small dogs & have always wanted a cocker spaniel or similar somehow I’ve always ended up being gifted big dogs (rescues while growing up) or dating someone who buys a puppy that’s going to be big (current situation included).

Someday I’ll have the time to train a puppy again & get myself a lil cuttie

Sounds like you’ve got the perfect combination in manner and disposition!

I sent Tierra to a police dog training camp for 2 months cuz I seriously believe even if I was getting attacked she would only try to get in the middle & lick my face....she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body, which is handy w/ free roaming chickens but not so much when I walk her @ night through the sketchy apartments areas at the bottom of our hillside.

I’ll never forget the look on the huge man’s face when he said “wait...u want me to train your pitbull to be mean?!” hahaha.

I’m like “NO! She’s a natural lover -don’t do anything that will break her natural spirit, but if u could train her to growl on command I’d feel a lot safer.”

Some of our newer members who also own dogs may not be aware that we have a specific thread for posting pics and bragging about our mutts. Feel free to post more stuff about your dogs there (end of shameless plug).
