The Differences of a few Genes

I love the comment that Houndstooth left about our last post, My Scooby Doobie Doo:

Houndstooth:  Isn't it funny how certain dogs just have the ability to do things that endear them to us, even though it would bug the daylights out of us if others did it? I love his happy go lucky smile and attitude!

Which got me thinking how true that statement is.  What I find cracks me up about my walk with Chance, turns into a nightmare with Blaze.  Blaze is so driven, when she pulls me on our walks it turns into aggravated frustration.  Blaze doesn't care whether she dragging me or not.  She wants to go where she wants to go.  I rarely find my walks with her to be amusing.  She is wickedly smart and is always devising what works to her advantage.

It doesn't help that I'm horrible at leash training and Blaze and Chance were never leashed trained before they came back to us.  Blaze uses this to her advantage.  Chance does too, but he is playful smart ass about it whereas Blaze is strong willed and has a one track mind.  It is difficult to find the humor with Blaze when we are always competing with each other.

The same walk with two different dogs.  What is cute and funny with one, will irritate me with the other.  I can't imagine tolerating my other dogs pulling me down the street like Chance does, but then that's Chance. They each so unique with their own character, style and attitude that annoying as some things may be I wouldn't change one of them.  That is the beauty of their individual personalities and all the wonderful and not so wonderful qualities that make them who they are.

So very true. It would be a very dull world if all furries and all peeps were made exactly the same. We love hearing about the different things about your pups that make them each unique.

That's the great thing about pups. Their personalities are so vast, even for the ones of the same breed. Never a dull moment for sure!
