lefty's random dog thread. - Page 12

I remember watching a tape of some Jagdterriers hog hunting, They latched on to the hog's ears and it took off into the woods with them dangling like earrings.

Today's random pic:



Saw an Ibizan in the West Village the other day, which is a pretty rare dog for city.



If I didn't love bulls breeds so much I'd have sighthounds, especially pariahs. Cute girls like them too.

Gay men are also notoriously into sighthounds.

Depends on how severe his symptoms are, but here are some common methods: * Reduce dander through regular grooming of the dog. * Keep the house clean and get one of those fancy vacuums. * OTC medications like Claritin. * Allergy shots. edit: here are some more tips - http://allergies.about.com/od/specif...dogallergy.htm

Drugs. Failing that, a non-shedding curly coated breed.

A Golden Retriever won't work. An Irish Water Spaniel might. Get your cousins to give you one of those.

My doggie loves the snow "The Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever looks somewhat like a small Golden Retriever. It is a well-muscled dog that is medium to heavy boned. It has a deep chest that is well-insulated for swimming in cold water. The coat is dense, and comes in various shades of red and orange. It usually has small white markings on the feet, chest, tail tip and sometimes face and may have a slight wave on its back, but the coat is otherwise straight. The ears are triangular and set high and are well back from the skull. The head is clean-cut and slightly wedge-shaped. The powerful, compact, well-muscled body is on sturdy, solid legs."

NSDTRs were only admitted to the AKC fairly recently, weren't they? I seem to recall they were still part of the rare-breed scene back when I was active in it in the '90s. Given a choice between a Golden and an NSDTR, I would unhesitatingly choose the latter, although this is more of a gut instinct thing than anything I can give good reasons for.
