I have to share what happened yesterday (I can't believe I just remembered to share it with you)... :teehee:

My doorbell rang, and two of my dogs started barking, as usual. They accompanied me to the door to see who was there. As I opened the door, the dogs tried to come out, so I had to gruffly tell them to stay back. Then I turned and smiled, saying hi to the young girl (probably middle school age).

Here's how the conversation went:

Girl: "Hi, I'm raising money for college,"

Girl pauses and glances out of the corner of her eye at my dogs...

Girl continues: "...and I'm walking dogs..."

Girl looks again at my dogs...

Girl concludes: "...but your dogs look big and scary..."

Girl backs away from the door and turns quickly toward the sidewalk, not even glancing behind her as she almost runs away.

Also wondering what kind of big scary dogs you have...

I'm afraid of big, scary yorkies. This lady on my paper route had an attack yorkie, though a few times she dogsat for a cocker spaniel and I would joke that the yorkie was morphing bigger... then one day there was a rottweiler at that house... (The rott looked friendly though)

Nathalie I am shaking in my boots at your big scary dogs!:teehee: This weekend I had a similar experience while watching my bro's dog. The UPS guy left a package at the end of our side walk because both the dogs were inside barking at him. Here are my big scary dogs. The black one is Bentley (mine) and the little guy fighting sleep is Malden (my bro's)

OK so I guess I have to get in on this too!

Last weekend was my DGD's birthday party. They had one more guest than they had invited because I brought my big and scarey dog Boots with me. He kept everyone in line that day, with his oh so noisy bark and his huge fangs.

Boots now weighs in at 6 lbs. 4 oz. which is smaller than both of my children when they were born.

He does not bark when someone comes to the door. He could care less! If they had food in their pockets, now then he would care!!!

HAHA that's great !! My parents newpaper stopped showing up suddenly and when they contacted the paper they said the paperMAN was scard of our dog.....the dog apparently barked at him from an upstairs window one morning and so he stopped delivering the paper :roflhard: Not b/c the dog runs loose in the yard and bit him or chased him .... he barked from an upstairs window.:teehee:

What a chicken! Heck, Pele howls from the front window...I'm surprised people walk past our house. But looking at pictures of him lying around on the couch...do you really think he would hurt anyone? :roflhard:

: Killer Dogs! We have a poodle, about as sweet as they come; however, IF anyone comes to the door she becomes the ferocious beast on the block. She couldn't fight her way out of a paper bag. Don't you just love them for keeping their people safe and sound? Dogs Rule!! :biting:

Ya know, though, I read an article a while back, on Yahoo, about a woman who had a Chihuahua so mean it would literally chase people and attack them! It got to the point where the mail person refused to deliver mail to that street anymore because the woman refused to keep her dog contained! :roflhard: Ok, it's not really funny that the dog was attacking people, but, I can't help but laugh at the thought of a Chihuahua so ferocious that the people there lived in fear :teehee:

:roflhard: A chihuahua on our block used to chase my daughter into the house when she came home from school. The woman never kept him on a leash and did nothing to keep him from chasing people - didn't even call him back - so he became quite a pest, but it was always funny when DD would talk about our ferocious neighborhood chihuahua.

LOL, y'all's stories are hilarious!

Nobody dares come in my yard with my 2 dogs--a 14yo red chow named Oso and Karl, a german shepherd so big Oso looks small next to him. Strangely enough, tho' everyone stands well away from the fence when Karl gallops up....they all seem to want one just like him! DD went to the movies with her new beau and his folks this weekend, and after seeing Karl patrolling the fence the young mans mom announce to her hubby that she wanted another dog! Another neighbor drools over him regularly and has wanted to know if we'll ever breed him for pups!

I have to admit Mr. Bones - the big black & white one who is a Great Dane/Lab mix will beat on the door from the inside if someone knocks on my door when I'm not home. Of course when he goes out with me he hides behind me & does his little bark almost under his breath. The Bulldog on the other hand will practically smack himself in the back if the head with his butt b/c he's wiggling so hard! It never ceases to amaze me how many people are scared of him. I always tell people he'll drown you in slobber but that's about it. :)

:teehee: I know, I can't see being told what to do by a 5 pound dog. lol But Chis get a bad reputation because of their bad owners. Any dog that isn't trained and disciplined can become a problem, but if it's a 120 pound Rottweiler that is snapping and growling at people, then the owner is going to HAVE to do something about it before the dog is taken away. But stupid owners think a Chihuahua is so little and cute they don't bother correcting them. :doh:

Not mine though. I'm committed to making sure I don't end up with two snappy yippy devil dogs. I knew a lady with a chihuahua that was the meanest little turd I've ever seen, and I had to regularly resist the urge to drop-kick him out the door. And I'll be damned if my pups turn out like that! :ick:

I agree totally. The people that keep telling me "oh he's just a puppy and so cute, let him be a puppy" or "you are mean" are the ones I want to drop kick. You begin as you want to remain. If you want a quiet well mannered dog, start at the beginning and teach them right away what is allowed and what is not allowed. Having said that, Boots is nipping and I am trying to get him stopped, but the things the "professionals" told me to do are not working. I will have to find another way to curb this desire to lunch or munch on feet, hands and anything that moves. He is sweet tempered and quiet, but stubborn and determined that HE will be the Alpha male. Sooner or later it is going to be a rude awakening when he finally realizes I AM THE BOSS!

While he's chewing at your hands, try nail biter, the stuff they sell to help people stop biting their nails (OK, it's someone else you're trying to stop biting your nails, and there're a dog, but the princple's the same.) And tabasco sauce on shoes can work wonders (NOTE: do NOT put this raw on your hands, or any other exposed skin areas. It Burns arround the nailbed and any cuts, and you can feel it trying to burn through your normal skin)
What methods have you been given to stop boots? we use a "Growlly" method, but we have a sooky, subby dog (Whom no-one is ever scared of. Not even the cat, the possums, the chooks, the lizards, the birds...)

Thank you all so much, I've needed a good laugh all weekend!

My 13 y.o. baby girl is just about toothless, but she has one heck of a bark still, and folks don't trust her when she's on alert. Little do they know that for a treat of anykind, she will be theirs forever.
