Yes there was a game last night, but you know what happened last weekend? The Westminster Dog Show! I’d rather talk about dogs than the game last night, so without further ado, let’s get into this.
1. They’re all good dogs
Name: Pawtrick Eaves
Breed: Bearded Hound
Agility Score: 9/10 can maneuver around orange cones, sometimes neglects to duck flying objects
Obedience: 12/10 always does what is asked of him
Breed standard: 10/10 very bearded
This breed is very committed to its mate and very goal oriented. Easy going unless in pursuit of prey. Most Bearded Hounds will back down from a fight or let another of the pack handle an outside aggressor.
2. Even when they’re not precisely dogs
Name: Antoine Purrsel
Breed: French Purrdle
Agility Score: 0/10, would not complete the course, took a nap on the ramp for 45 minutes.
Obedience: 0/10, does not seem to be motivated by food, rewards, or petting, does what he wants when he wants.
Breed Standard: 10/10 very French, very grumpy
French Purrdles are fiercely territorial of their space and their pack. They frequently get in scraps they have no hope of winning and often find a way to win anyway through force of will and their biting claws.
3. Extra points for enthusiasm
Name: Devin Snort
Breed: Long Tongued Snorter
Agility Score: 7/10, light on his feet, sometimes trips over them in his enthusiasm
Obedience: 10/10, wants to make you happy and proud
Breed Standard: 10/10, snorts a lot
Long Tongued Snorters are heavily motivated by praise and affection. They are not generally known to be aggressive with outsiders unless provoked, but will stand their ground when necessary. They can be very stealthy when calm and focused.
4. Once broke every dish in a china shop
Name: Jomoooooo Benn
Breed: Piney Woods Cowdog
Agility: 4/10, knocked the bar off every single one of his jumps, sat down on top of tunnel
Obedience: 6/10, will work hard for food rewards, doesn’t much care otherwise
Breed Standard: 10/10, has eyes provoking attackers will drown in
The Piney Woods Cowdog is a breed apart, mostly because they’re so much larger than other dogs. Characterized by their big brown eyes and gentle expressions, don’t be fooled by this secretly aggressive breed. They will not back down when provoked.
5. Let’s just work some aggression out with this post friends
Name: Joey Spezza
Breed: Australian Kangadog
Agility: well, he jumped straight over the course, so we’ll call that 12/10
Obedience: 8/10, is obedient but gives the impression he knows better
Breed Standard: 10/10, strong high kick
The Australian Kangadog can be very lethal when properly trained and deployed. Is somewhat prone to injury when not careful about protecting its own core. Kangapuppies are very trusting, but when properly trained, the adult of the breed will be very discriminating in its company.
6. And now some actual puppies
Names: John Goldenberg and Esa Glindell
Breed: Swedish Elfhound and its close cousin, the Finnish Elfhound
Agility: 2/10, keep tripping over themselves and each other, but in a really cute way
Obedience: 10/10, they will never do what you say but they’ll be so cute doing it you won’t care
Breed Standard: 12/10, fluffy and cute
The Elfhound is friendly and cute as a puppy but will grow up to be so beautiful they will appear otherworldly. Socialization is important at an early age to keep the adult Elfhound from being aloof and unfriendly.
