I pictured the ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ dog.
I had a doberman when I was in high school. It was a rescue puppy. We had a 7 foot cinder block fence around our backyard in Arizona. When it got full-grown he would runaway after leaping the fence. To be fair, our yard was not big enough for the dog.
He did this two or three times until my dad got a call from a rancher in Casa Grande, 60 miles away, who had caught him. My dad was tired of going to pick up the dog and told the rancher about him jumping the fence in our yard. He asked the rancher if he was interested in the dog. An agreement was reached and our troubles with the runaway doberman were over with just like that.
I had a friend from high school who had a doberman named Cholla, after the cactus that would hook into your skin if you just looked at it wrong. Commonly known as jumping cactus. Nice enough dog but my friend was involved in some shady business and used him as a guard dog.
The dog would wait until you walked past it and then would go after your calf from the back in a quick nip and retreat maneuver. Just like you compared the doberman to Trump's behavior. He never really broke the skin but he could leave a bruise, just enough to let you know who was in charge.
I saw what you did there. Now that's funny. 😂
Indeed the pet would attach itself to whoever took care of it. Having a dog for photo ops is just political theatre.
They are very smart, protective and territorial. I swear the female knew how to speak English. Our kids and their friends could play all over them and the dogs would remain passive and unprovocable.
I could leave the yard gate open and they wouldn't leave. They knew their territory and boundaries. They were very possessive of family members. They weren't aggressive unless threatened.
They are the best dogs I've every had.
I had a rottie mix that was a rescue. Wonderful dog. When I lost him last year I started looking around and found a husband and wife team that call themselves Recycled Rottweilers in Oswego Illinois. All they do is screen people and rottweilers and play matchmaker. This guy was a surrender from a family whos father had been nearly paralyzed in an accident and couldn’t spare the time while caring for him. He obviously had a good home, but a little behind on training. He is a wonderful gentle giant and loves everyone.
You have my deepest sympathy! Been where you are. Lost my last best friend in August 2018. This is the longest I've ever been without a dog in my life and I still miss my Teddy.
My best to you.
Aw dangit...now I deeply regret not naming my boy Billy Jack.
You gotta admit two of them posted in front of his desk in the oval office would look cool as hell.
Trump is a bit of a germaphobe.
I would imagine a licky dog might be low on his list of things he wants.
Buddy was being watched at their Chappaqua house by SS and supposedly got run over while chasing around the construction guys.
HilBil weren’t home.
People who worked at the Chappaqua house said the SS pretty much took care of and played with Buddy.
Slick was probably just doing a Ron Brown funeral for that story.
Indeed! As if this weren’t already the best election ever, a couple of “Lads” would be such a nice touch.
What heart breaking stories.
My dad was always a little freaked out by my Dobes.
He worked 4-12 at the prison and when he got home at night, he’d pull in the driveway and while he was getting out of the truck, Tito The Wonder Dobe would silently slink out of the darkness of the back yard and suddenly “appear” when dad turned around after shutting the truck door.
Tito would just sit there, a darker shadow in the pitch black yard, and watch him.
Dad said the dog gave him the creeps.
My Dobes will bark at strangers near the house, to warn them away.
As long as they’re barking, people are safe.
When they don’t bark at all, it means they’re not wanting the intruder to know what’s coming.
If he wanted to really screw with lib brains, he’d post two Pharaoh Hounds by his desk.
