It's a Dog's Life

I've been reading some whacked out stuff lately, I won't bore you with details, however this has led me to a question for you all...

What kind of a dog are you?

Not the kind you want, or the kind you want to be, or the kind you THINK you are, but the true dog that you are.

Myself, I would have to say I'm a cross between a German Shephard and a Labrador Retriever. My shephard instincts make me loyal and true, a boon companion, yet champion guard dog, I take my responibilities very seriously and disregard people who don't. My Lab instincts make me fat and lazy, with attempts at humor and playfulness. I love the water and all things associated with it.

Now, sometimes in my strange little universe, I can see poodles (those women who are certainly high maintenence with squeaky voices) or bulldogs with their pushed in noses (generally where men are concerned, their flabby jaws and unkempt air) or even those small Jack dogs (mostly children, over excited and yapping at everything and nothing).

So tell me, what kind of dog are you?

Lately the way life is treating me, I feel like a mutt on a chain who keeps getting bonked on the nose with rolled up newspaper.

I'm probably a lab. Nah. I'm basset hound. Those are the laziest, aren't they?

I think I'm a bit like my husky-mix mutt. Love long walks in the woods and will at times howl with excitement. But you ask me to fetch? Fuggedaboudit. I don't do tricks on command.

Christi -- I hear ya! But I'll let you off your chain so you can run around free and give you some nice doggie treats.

Lois -- That's funny. How can you be lazy with your life?

Laurel -- Tricks on command, what's that?

Pure mutt :).

I have no idea what I am. Probably a Shetland Sheepdog - high strung and needy. :)

Definitely a Basset Hound! Especially after having owned one for many years. Yep, that's me, just wanting to be left alone to curl up somewhere warm, and then go out for the occasional walk.

(*sigh*) I think I'm a cat...

Piedmont Writer said...

Amy -- nothing wrong with that, some of my best friends are mutts.

Glam -- Nothing wrong with that either.

Karen -- Gee, maybe I should be one of those too. Sounds like me.

Nicole -- I'm still laughing!

I want to be a German Shephard. Or maybe a Husky. Actually I want to be a dog that's worthy of being called Buck. Yes, Call of the Wild is one of my favorite books. :) In reality I'm just a little mutt.

Piedmont Writer said...

Sarah Jayne -- Now that's not true at all, I don't think you would be a mutt. And you may be called Buck, if you are indeed a mutt. Some of the best mutt's I've known have had worthy names.

I'm probably more of a cat. ;)

Teebore said...

I'm probably a retired Greyhound: a lazy, lazy dog.

Piedmont Writer said...

Hannah -- you and Nicole.

Austin -- I hate to tell you retired greyhounds are not lazy. My brother had one and it was everything they could do to keep him still and quiet. They still love to chase things even when they don't have to.
