Posted on 06/15/2013 4:07:06 PM PDT by TexasTransplant
Just thinking about getting a Dog, next thing I know I'm watching Youtube vids with Dogs...
The Duke had a good one
What has Chelsea Clinton appeared in?
John Wayne in Big Jake. “DOG”!
Beagles. To provide air support.
That movie ended without ever finding out whether "DOG" lived or died.
Lady in “Goodbye My Lady”. It had Walter Brennan, Phil Harris, Brandon DeWilde (the kid from Shane), and Sidney Poitier.
Plus the dog was a Basenji... coolest dogs ever!
Unfortunately, Beagles smell! How about Nopie, from the Gumby Show?
She got a makeover?
My favorite movie is a commercial for dog food.
what kind of dog is Mr. Peabody and do they call him that because of the way he smells but who cares really just get a beagle they are the smartest being on the planet and they can provide air support
Golden Retriever. Get a reputable breeder and pick your pup. I get females because they seem to be extremely pack oriented and don’t want to roam. Of course, never say never. Be sure to put in tons of time - daily. Thirty minutes to an hour of focussed time, especially when they are pups learning the ropes and bonding. Go to puppy school or the like to learn how to be the master; don’t do this and the dog will control you. When mature, they still need to walk daily (or exercise close to it) and at least 10-15 minutes of face time.
Do these simple things and your animal will astound you. Retrievers are some of the smartest dogs and clearly smarter than many people. Truly, man’s best friend.
Don’t take the time to do the things the animal needs and you’ll have a mess on your hands. Goes for human kids, too.
William/Willie from Patton
Beagles are smart, but that also makes them a bit stubborn.
The dog in “The Outlaw Josey Wales” that was always spat at by Clint Eastwood.
Keep your poochie clean and it won’t stink.
Do not, I repeat, do not get anything doodled. When you breed anything with a poodle you usually get the worst of both dogs. You are not guaranteed it will not shed (most do) and health issues are amplified. Get a mutt, but not a doodle.
A Boy and his Dog.
Dog Movie: “Eight Below”.
Dog: Poodle and Poodle mixes. If you like running or walking a standard poodle or Golden Doodle (Poodle and Golden Retriever) are really great dogs. These dogs are quite big and they are not afraid of anything and are excellent guard dogs to boot.
If you are less active, with smaller ones you won’t feel guilty about not walking them and they can get a workout in in an apartment...
Advantages: Smartest dog, easiest to train, hypo-allergenic, don’t shed.
Disadvantages: With small ones you got to make sure they have a balanced diet, but they are not costly to feed as they eat a hecka lot less than a big dog.
If you don’t like the ‘dreadlocks’ look you will have to take them to a groomer.
Disclaimer: I have owned Boston Terriers, Bulldogs, Shar Pei’s, German Shorthair Pointers, Chows, Spiz, German Sheppards and other mutts.
Dogs really are fun to have and add a lot to a single persons life or a family. If they get hurt they can cost you money, but they more than make up for it with their loyalty and affection.
Your kids will never be as happy to see you when you get home as your dogs will be.
"It's disconcerting to think that the smartest member of this little expedition is a dog."
I don’t know about the best dog in a movie, but the best
dog movie in years, I believe, is Haichi, A Dog’s Tale.
I just gave it as a gift to a friend who had to lay hers
to sleep. If you’re a dog lover, you should see it.
Guess Lassie was all hollywood hype.......
One of my favorite breeds.
PS: Some of my best and most loyal dogs I’ve had over the years have been pound puppies. I have done this enough to know that most dogs know you saved their lives and are forever grateful that you rescued them.
They smell even when clean. Ya can’t wash them every day, can you? You can always tell when a house has beagles! I like them, but not inside. I had a Briard. Beautiful, smart, but a lot of work!
I also like Rin Tin Tin, who made a brief appearance toward the end of his life in "The Hollywood Revue of 1929."
Sam, the star of "Savage Sam" (1963), a film about settlers and Indians on the Texas frontier, is another favorite. Modern audiences would find the book of the same title by Fred Gipson (New York: Harper, 1962), to be even more politically incorrect than the movie.
That was the best dog ever, and the most useful.
I’m partial to Cairn Terriers, think Toto from the Wizard of Oz.
Failing that, get a sturdy mutt in preference to an over-bred purebred. Let the dog pick you.
Are you going to name it after the dog in The Dam Busters?
“I don’t think you understand, these boys killed my dog.”
I remember it as, “I don’t think you understand... they shot my dog.” (looked up quote)
My favorite movie quote for justifying revenge. (Shooter 2007)
I watched that Jodi Foster movie the other night.... Brave One. Toward the end she finds the bad guys, and one of them has her dog. Walks up behind... the guy turns around and says you want something. She says “I want my dog back”. then BANG.... Pretty good moment.
Sight hounds have their own quirks as do scent hounds. They have big hearts and are brave. They will defend you and your home, but are great with kids. They are more “doggy” dogs than some popular pet breeds, so they do have a bit of an odor and stereotypical dog behaviors are somewhat more pronounced. They do love their people, though, fiercely. Great animals, great working partners, great friends.
I don’t know about beagles, but relatives have had golden retrievers and bassets that smelled no matter how clean they were and even smelled up the whole house. Maybe it was because they were large male dogs?
"... and your little dog, too!"
Get a Lab, best dog in the world. Most gentle, loving, intelligent dog out there. (Sorry Golden Retriever people, I think they are are a little more goofy than labs, a close second tho)
A rescue lab 4 or 5 years old will love you like no other dog.
I have two doodles. They are fantastic animals. :)
I see old movies with dogs and old photos with dogs, and it’s oddly touching and moving. So much intense love and care on their part, such a desire to please, so little remembered for most, such a brief moment under the sun. It makes me think of all mine that have gone before me, and I hope they were held in the high regard that all of mine have been. Their time with us is too short, just way too short. Such a rarity in the world, that sort of bond. Not unusual at all with a beloved dog, though.
A great movie! Saw it for the first time in the last year or so. Interesting characters and the fun of watching a strange little dog out hunt the big champion and mystify experienced hunter-dog owners.
