Quiz of the Day: What Does Your Dog’s Breed Say About You?

What Does My Dog’s Breed Say About Me?

In my book It’s a Dog’s Life … but It’s Your  Carpet,  I admit, I make some pretty huge generalizations about breeds  and pet  owners. Granted, they’re my own opinions, but if you really wanted to   know what your veterinarian thinks of you when you walk in the door with  your  breed of dog, read on!

Labrador Retriever

Dedicated, outdoorsy, loyal, and generally a good person to be around. Shops  at REI. Drives a Subaru.

Chihuahua

May bite. The dog too.

Kind, mild mannered. Has neurotic tendencies. Gentle. Laid back. Drinks  bottled water. Often looks like the dog.

Miniature Poodle

Usually owned by a sweet, old, white-haired person.

Potential to be a loyal, family-oriented person. Can be snarky and have an  east-coast attitude.

What? Don’t believe me? What do you think? Does your breed represent you?

And yes, I purposely skipped stereotyping us American pit bull terrier  dog  owners. But as a veterinary student once said to me: “Dr. Lee … you  look just  like your dog.”

Precious Pup of the Day for Monday, May 21

Name: Nala
Age: Two months old
Gender: Female Breed: Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever
Home: Seven Fields, Pennsylvania, USA
Nala is absolutely full of energy and is mischievous but she is such a loving dog that loves kisses, hugs, laps and to be held. She already sleeps great at night and is a hit with the neighborhood kids and dogs. We can’t wait to see what she turns into. Right now it looks to be more lab but only time will tell. But we do know that she will provide lots of love and fun to this family for many years.

Nala is a Golden Retriever mix. Her dad was pure bred Golden and her mom was half Golden Retriever and half Black Lab. We lost our fourteen-year-old Golden Retriever about two months ago and Nala lovingly fills that void. She is incredibly intelligent. In just four days of having her home with us she learned numerous words including: home, inside, outside, sit, bedtime, our “potty words” and the obvious “no“.

She is potty training great and now goes to the door and whines but we have to move fast! She does great in her crate with little complaint and has slept through the night since the first day we got her. She listens to and watches everything from the lawnmower to a someone sawing. She doesn’t always like these new things but watches intently to try and figure them out.

She has many favorite toys but especially loves my kids old Webkinz animals. Perfect for her size and little teeth for now. She loves kids with no hesitation. She is more apprehensive with big people but warms up within seconds. We love her very much!
 

Dog-gone Doggie of the Day for April 20th

Mars, the Dog of the Day
Name: Mars
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male Breed: Black Labrador Retriever
Home: San Diego, California, USA
Mars is an energetic Black Lab who loves doing anything outside. He enjoys many trips to dog beach and walks in the surrounding regional parks. We live in San Diego, so the weather is usually good, and there are lots of choices of places to take him! He is constantly the center of attention (both good and bad), and is adored by anyone who meets him.

Although at times his energy is a little overwhelming, a quick toss of the ball outside or a nice walk always calms him down. His favorite trick to do is “high five,” of course a treat is always appreciated when doing this. He loves to get his belly rubbed and does the most adorable head tilt when you are talking to him. It really looks like he understand every word you say! Overall, Mars is the friendliest Lab you will ever meet and always wants to play with new friends.

Recently Mars went to a doggie cafe social at the local humane society and won first place in the trick competition they had! He basically outlasted all the other dogs by knowing how to do the most tricks which was super fun and exciting!

Precious Pups of the Day for March 27th

Otis, the Dog of the Day
Name: Otis
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male Breed: Black Labrador Retriever
Home: Loganton, Pennsylvania, USA
Otis is special because at the age of two, he jumped off my deck, landed badly and injured his spine. He was unable to walk or control his bladder for quite awhile. I didn’t know if he’d ever walk again, but he proved everyone wrong.Today, Otis still experiences some difficulties due to his injury, but the smile never has left his face. He loves to swim and run with his brother Filson. Otis and Filson both have been a godsend to me. I don’t know what I would do without them. They show me unconditional love, and I show them unconditional love in return.

Otis has an infectious personality. When he runs and is playing he truly does smile… He loves playing frisbee and is very affectionate. The picture of him in the water is from a couple years ago, when he hadn’t gotten quite as white on his muzzle. He loves being around people and dogs … of all kinds. Also, he is a bed hog. I have a king size bed and with him and Filson on it there is barely enough room for me. Gotta love him!
