Mine is a female, someday we might get another pooch but the house is a bit tight right now.

We have a tibetian terrier. Despite it's name it's not a member of the terrier group, but acquired its name from European travelers who thought it looked like a terrier.

Bred and raised in monasteries by lamas over 2000 years ago, Tibetan Terriers were kept as good luck charms, mascots, watchdogs, and companions. In addition to herding sheep, they were also used to retrieve articles that fell below mountain sides.

Known as the "Holy Dogs of Tibet", they were never sold but only given as gifts by monks to promote good fortune. As such, the early history of the breed is linked to only a handful of foundation dogs. Recent DNA analysis has concluded that the Tibetan Terrier is descended from the most ancient dog breeds.

And here is our dog, with the traditional Norwegian Bunad on the Norwegian National Day:

mine's getting pretty good at the frisbee. before he'd intensely watch other dogs catch frisbees at the park so he was already motivated.

^the lead is 6 feet long and he was on the way down before catching it. he easily gets up near/at 6ft high now, maybe even higher if i'm bouncing a ball for him to catch or the frisbee is floating that high near him.

I'm weary about how high he can jump and it being too much stress at so young [15months]. I'm planning to start running with him soon.

there are some epic dog parks in Maine. 

after a year he's really improved obedience wise, calmed down a ton, but he gets so crazy at motorcycles (in the car, when walking on the street). I'm thinking about having a friend with a loud motorcycle come over and try to get him near the bike or maybe even on it to stop him from going wild whenever near one.

Have you done nosework with yours? Norbert freaking loves it. It gives him a chance to use a part of his body that is generally just put to bad use (finding poop, critters, food on the ground) and use it for good. It also is a really good problem solving skill.

Norbert Weiner?

 

Haven't thought of The FFFB in years. I met Gilbert Shelton when I worked on Comic Book Confidential. Cool cat. As were Spiegelman, Crumb, Griffith - the guy I really wanted to meet was Pekar, but couldn't make it happen.

Jack Russell vs Cobra.

^Great to see the little Jack put paid to the cobra without suffering any scathe.

On another note, the imbecility of some dog owners never ceases to amaze me. I was out with my Tosa Cyrus yesterday , and a guy on a bicycle came up with a yellow Lab--an intact male. He had an unusually broad head with more wrinkle than I've ever seen on a Lab, which makes me wonder whether there was some sort of "bully" blood up-line. Anyway, I said to the guy that we had better keep our dogs apart. However, the Lab's owner kept crowding me, saying, "Oh, it'll be all right. Besides, he's gay." I don't know what "gay" means in this context--probably that the damn dog was into dominance mounting other males. Anyway, he kept crowding me with his dog, and I kept backing away. The Lab was barking and growling, kicking up dirt with all four paws and obviously spoiling for trouble.. Cyrus didn't react as much as I thought he would. His attitude toward the Lab seemed to be incredulity--"What in Hell do you think you're doing?" Anyway, finally I said, "Look, this is a very risky situation. I don't want to come across as an asshole, but I don't want to jeopardize your dog." At last he got the message and moved away with his dog.
