I have learned the hard way to talk with my mouth closed when Fred and I are together. He likes me...a lot. And he has a long tongue. And he put it right down my throat one time when I was talking. My mouth afterwards tasted horrible and nothing could get rid of that taste. Considering he likes to lick butts, I guess I know what I was tasting. GROSS!!!!!!
Lol IRBS, you and Triedit qre the only other people I've heard use this term for their kids. I've often been heard asking the girl-child where the boy-child is. Also have referred to them as Thing 1 and Thing 2, and when referring to them both at the same time, they are the kidlets.
I do it sometimes in person but all the time on the internet. I've just never been comfortable using his name on the internet. Perhaps that is just paranoia and it probably wouldn't make a difference but on the other hand I can't think of a legitamite reason FOR posting his name on the internet so I don't.
Bull Terrier. Don Cherry used to have one made famous called Blue.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
The original version of the Disney movie The Incredible Journey had one caled Bodger. The film Oliver! also had one in it called Bullseye. General Patton of the WWII US Army had one called William The Conquorer but was so playfull and non-agressive was dubbed Willy. And of course there was Spuds McKenzie who was the original party animal for Budwieser beer, was actually a female. This was a guarded secret I suppose because in the homophobic world of America at the time, "Chicks" wen't party animals and the Budwieser Girls would never go for a Party hardy chick lest it appear immoral. heh heh
This breed when bred well and raised in the right way, have a very personable side come forward. Clownish, and cuddly, they are very affectionate and have no interest in the concept of your personal space. Ours is deaf and was born that way. Hence the name Dodger which is short for his kennal name I Bullet Dodger. Less sensitive breeders would upon finding a deaf pup in a litter would shoot or drown them. This was to keep people from finding out that a genetic defect might exist in the line.
We refer to him among friends as "The Guinness".
There is an old legend of Bull Terriers protecting the livestock from predatious creatures and passion starved passers by. As this picture shows one in action, the legend must be true.
I've seen dogs that have a sense of humour. Ours is no different at all. He likes a good laugh.
I certainly did not mean to imply that they can't(or won't).I meant people that got joy out of torturing them and doing other vile things to them.
