I have a chow X retreiver that really IS dumb. I read in a dog training book you could test a dog's intelligence by showing it a treat, then putting the treat under a cup while the dog is watching. Smart dogs don't hesitate, just knock the cup over and get the treat.

Mine looked at the cup, looked at me, looked at the cup, and walked off.

We have two English Cocker Spaniels - Misty and Waldo. Misty is the oldest, almost 12 now, and Waldo is a few years younger. Both still act like two year olds (dogs AND children). Some times you want to wring their necks, other times they just make you go "awwwww". Misty is actually pretty smart, but just doesn't want to be. Waldo I think really is dumb, even though he's a show champion. He's just so lovable, in a Forrest Gump kinda way.....

We currently have Havik, a Plott Hound with a little bit of another breed in him, and Rokit, who is part Terrier and part unknown. I say it's wolf, I call him "Wolf Dog".
Both were born in 2002, we adopted them from different shelters in 2003, after loosing our 3 previous dogs to old age in 2002.
They are very devoted to us. We've had a few problems with Havik, he is so protective that he will attack anyone who comes near any of us or the house. Once he gets to know a person he's your best friend. He seems to have an inner sense in that he can tell bad people from good. Anyone who wants to date my daughter must pass the Havik test first (I'm serious. He so disliked one guy that no matter what we did I could not bring the dog into the room with this guy. Havik would literally tear him apart). Kind of funny when he's asleep next to us on the bed on his back with his paws sticking up in the air.
Rokit is high energy and very affectionate, and beats up his big brother daily.

Please consider adopting your next dog from a shelter. There's lots of dogs waiting for a happy home. :)

Very sorry to hear that. Labs are runners, my Chocolate Lab would stay in the yard off leash with me for the longest times, then he's get this wild look in his eyes and just bolt. He also would barrel past us when we opened the door. I guess it was the call of the wild! All the neighbors knew him and they would bring him back. He had several car encounters, he ran into the side of a car going by once, the driver felt terrible, it wasn't his fault.
Havik cannot go out without a leash, he'd be gone in a second. He also bolts out the door, we have to be careful. Rokit will go out in the yard, no leash needed. We trained him not to leave the yard and it worked. He will chase deer just to the edge of the grass.

Hey guys heres my two dogs right now They are both SPCA dogs and I couldnt ask for more from either. They let my daughter(18 months) walk all over them literally, and slapping,pulling jowls and underbelly skin, thesedogs just love that little girl...they dont care for my wife as much. Whoopie(7yrs) is half st bernard and half black lab, she's a bit porky but thats ok Im gonna use her later to pull my worthless F-150 out of the driveway. And Moose,half lab and half great dane is still young, I think about 2 years,he's my fast attack first wave of home defense. and at $92.50 about a dollar a pound. Its funny when I leave the house I look at them both and say "protect the baby"and they split off to cover the up and downstairs like the royal guard. Well thats enough from me they are like kids of course so once I get going I wont shut up. Jim

Amazing how those shelter dogs love us, isn't it? It's as if they know they had things bad and are so happy to have a good home.

Our local shelter will not let you adopt a pet if you do not pass their interview. I personally know of a husband and wife who are both school teachers and were turned down by the shelter because they would both be gone all day and would not be home with the dog. The husband stated than when the weather was nice the dog would be in a run outside all day and the people at the shelter just about flipped. I guess that they would rather see the dog die than sit outside in a run all day until its owners came home to play. I have also heard of this shelter turning people down because they have children in the house.

Interesting coincidence that many of us have two dogs. Dogs are the best. They give unconditional love and only want your approval in return. Here's a picture of my girls doing what they do best. Riley is a 5 year old golden and Bella is a 6 month old Bernese mountain dog. We lost a 9 year old bernese mountain dog in March of this year also full of cancer. People that don't have dogs may not understand but it was really heart breaking.
