And the puppy pic... cute, and again, nearly identical to mine.
Carolina Dogs/American Dingos... large ears with independent movement, wrinkles between ears, 30-45 lbs, shorter fur, lighter on the bottom, light
patches on shoulders, dew claws on front (or back) only, curved tail, smart.
Most dogs, when mixed enough, revert back to this 'primitive' dog state... and they are healthier and happier for it.
We did an IQ test for our puppy after she had surprised us a few times... one was putting a treat under three or four cups and seeing if they remember
which cup held the treat after increasing lengths of time. She aced everything.
Well, one day, months later, she got up and picked the cup that had held her testing treat off the counter and batted it to my feet and waited for me
to "get it."
She was asking for a treat in an abstract way... so I gave it to her. Dogs aren't supposed to be abstract thinkers like that, but some are.
I had another dog that lied ... we saw her through the window in the forbidden, plush living room as we came home and when we entered she was feigning
sleep on her bed in the laundry room. Dogs aren't supposed to do that, either.
Anyway... just got all gushy and wistful over your dog... scratch him for me.
