Brindie the bouncing Boxer (is there any other kind?) has ... split lips, and knocked down kids and made them cry.

We have a little problem with Beanie the muzzle-licker. When she meets people, we tell them (before thy bend down to her level) to keep their mouths closed is she's near because she'll give French kisses or try and stick her tongue up a nose.

My sisters Dachsie mix does that.

I am not a big fan of doggie kisses. I am especially not a fan of doggie kisses when accompanied by rude behavior. Brindie's kisses, like the rest of her, is waaay over the top. It's very frantic and slobbery, and she'd be happy to get you wherever - eye, nose, ear, mouth. Gross!

Pan gives kisses. For a big, drooly monster, her kisses are delicate. One little lick, and that's about it. Plus, she's very discriminating about them. The people she doles them out to are near and dear to her.

On our morning walk today, Pan attempted to snack on something that was quite possibly disgusting - long dead mole, vole, mouse, maybe even poop. She won't be kissing any humans for a couple of days.

her kisses are delicate

Every dog we've ever had prior to Beanie has been a refined kisser. When I say Beanie is pushy (or neurotic) and people ask me why, I give the pushy kissing thing as one reason. But she wasn't really taught how to be polite. I'm sure when she cleaned the babies she grew up with, everybody thought it was cute and funny. It isn't.

We are so "not fun" when it comes to stuff like this! So we have to correct Beanie and give her an acceptable alternative...

Diddy, I never said that Tuck, or even Yorik, were dangerously snappy. I don't recall which dog I fed first, ... treat to a dog should also be told how to offer it, if there is any chance of a problem.

Ok, this paints a whole different picture than you painted before. And yes, I remember Yorik's mom demonstrating how to properly feed treats, and yes.. it should be required as a part of the dog ownership self protection act.
Especially with Yorik. I wish i had a bit of prior warning before I treated him. It would have been appreciated.
I remember when I had my first dog, Blackie, when I was in Elementary and Junior High School. He was ... have been?No clue, but he's cute. It's also interesting that Muttley is NOT your first dog as I had believed.

He appears to have a flat coatish type of coat, but more likely a collie mix. He's got a chowish type of head, and the black coloring may be a fit. Or he could just be a heinz 57.
He looks a bit smallish to be a Newf cross. which would explain the coat/color/head but not the fringing and lightness of bone. Perhaps even a border collie cross "something"
At any rate any guess I could make would be a wild leap of my imagination.
Paul,
I just checked out the picture of you and Blackie. My guess is that Blackie was some kind of a little Spaniel dog? I understand how you chose your engineering career. You had a penchant for it early in life, huh? (Robot man)

I remember when I had my first dog, Blackie, when ... . Any idea what breed mix he might have been?[/nq]
No clue, but he's cute. It's also interesting that Muttley is NOT your first dog as I had believed.[/nq]Well, we got him when I was only about 10 years old, and he was not really *my* dog, but my parents'. When I was a little kid, my German grandparents had a dog named "Fritz", but I don't remember much. I think we picked up a largish tan male dog on the streets around 1955-56, and named him Sandy, but I think we had to have him PTS when he frightened my mother by growling and showing his teeth, demanding to be taken for a walk.

Then we got Blackie, probably from the pound, and he was my favorite pet. Unfortunately, when we moved to the county in 1962, we had left him in the yard on July 4 when we went to see fireworks, and when we got back he was gone, and we found some exploded firecrackers in the yard, so some local nitwit kids had scared him over the fence never to be found again Emotion: sad

Then my family got a little dog named "Lady", who was really more my sister's pet, and then we got a dumbish dog named "Gypsy". By that time I had moved out, and I remember having to help carry her to the car when she had to be PTS because she could no longer walk.
I also briefly took care of a beautiful GSD type dog, named Rex, who belonged to my dearly departed friend Jay, in 1973. When my friend was hospitalized for a manic episode of his bipolar disorder, I took the dog into a small room I was renting, where I also had my two cats and their eight young kittens. All was well until the cats freaked out and I got a bloody hand trying to get them off of the confused dog's head. Then I found a friend who took the dog and rehomed him. But that was a really fine dog.
He appears to have a flat coatish type of coat, but more likely a collie mix. He's got a chowish ... border collie cross "something" At any rate any guess I could make would be a wild leap of my imagination.

Thanks for the ideas. Whatever he was, he was a sweet dog. He is the one that was savagely attacked by a large tan CBR or Lab type dog, and I tried to break it up by stabbing the dog in the throat while its owner beat it with a stick. He survived that, but the fireworks did him in. I will forever miss him.

I would agreee there might be something spaniel-ese in that mix. That never entered my mind

About the time we got him, I had recently read a book "Champion Dog Prince Tom" about a Cocker Spaniel, and of course I wanted one. Blackie was probably just the closest match among pound dogs. I think he did have webbed feet, and enjoyed water.
There are other old pictures that show my early desire to be an engineer, albeit of a slightly different kind. See
. That was earlier than the
1956 date. Other images from the past are to be found at:http://www.smart.net/~pstech/photos/
Now, be nice!
