    DefaultAre your personalities alike?

    The more time I spend with Tal the more I realize we are alot alike. For instance, Tal is not super affectionate but when he is really tired he will be. He also isn't afraid of anything I can tell and seems to tolerate just about everything well.

    He is very easygoing and loves to play. I could name more but these are just a few traits we boths share. Sometimes I think he is exactly what I would be like if I were a dog!

    I would be in jail if I was like Ernie.

    Seriously I have often wondered if we become like our dogs or they like us. Perhaps we learn from each other.


    I enjoy life, laugh to much, easy going and love learning new things.
    Kassa was very much like me, and people are saying Ernie is becoming more like Kass every day. Except for him being destructive. So maybe we do influence our dogs.

    I think my girls are like me. Our last lab was the same way. Very adaptable, no trouble, just goes with the flow. Very low maintenance. Ready to go anywhere, anytime. Yep...that's me.
    SU & I talked about this a few months ago. We never have a problem on vacation. They eat at home, they eat in a hotel room. They are fine staying in their crates at hunt tests...no barking or whining. Even on the long ride to the Outer Banks, they get out to do their business & right back in the vehicle.
    Maybe they do take on our personalities!!

    Same here. Especially the road trips to the Outer Banks and Nashville. Kody will ride in the car all day without complaint. He really enjoys the hotel stays too.

    I think they naturally adapt to us while retaining their own personality querks. Kody is very easy going, flexible and more than willing to lay around and relax but always ready for fun and adventure like me. He can also be demanding, stubborn and bossy when he wants something done now, like going for his walk or play time. (I think he gets these traits from his Mom )

    This is really a very interesting line of thinking.

    My mom is constantly telling me that Angus is my payback for how I acted as a child. Unpredictable, willful, stubborn, embarrassing, great at making an ass of himself in public. She thinks I deserve everything I am getting. :P

    I have also noticed that, as he gets older, Angus reminds me more and more of Crash. He certainly didn't start out like Crash, as you all know. So I'm certainly not inclined to think this would be a natural tendency for him. And yet, more and more often I see little behaviors that remind me of Crash. It has to be because of how he has been raised, how he was nurtured, what behaviors were encouraged and so forth.

    So, I think that maybe the way we (sometimes even inadvertently) condition or train or dogs can have a lot to do with the way they turn out, and most likely we are teaching them to be like us.


    Connie and "The Boys":
    Angus, Yellow Lab, CGC, RE, CD
    Simon, d.b.a. Flat Coated Retriever, CGC, RE, CD

    Gone ahead, but forever in my heart:
    Crash, Pit Bull x Rottweiler x Golden Retriever

    God, I hope not.

    Maggie is wild, crazy, stubborn, a destructive cat chasing two year old Lab!

    On the other hand - after she has run her guts out she is mild, laid back, smiling, happy-go-lucky, willing to go for a ride, take a nap, just kind of kick back and do anything.

    Yes I and Emmy Lou(AKA Emma) are so much alike. In fact people have comment that many times over the years. We are both mellow, playful and stubborn. And we love food.
