    The best breed misinformation you've seen posted on the web. (We're doing this on another forum and it's hilarious).

    This is my favorite (from wikipedia no less). I should really edit it but it makes me LOL.

    Lol, beware my psychic dogs. They read and alter minds. ;)

    In fact, Nard is reading your mind right now....

    And where do flat coats migrate? Are they like Canadian geese?

    Likewise what is 'the Walk'.

    Maybe they migrate and are in some weird doggy cult. :confused:

    From DogBreedInfo:
    By whose definition of quiet? Beethoven? :rofl1:

    Other than there, there are just a few inaccuracies. Aussies are fairly forgiving and have a good sense of humor, but there are plenty out there that would not qualify for the "easy-going" label. There are plenty of Aussies that require careful handling, especially in public. They can have very set definitions of their space bubble and some will quickly use teeth to enforce it. These are sharp dogs, maybe not overall as sharp as say, the ACD, and the sharpness is becoming increasingly rare, found more often in the older working lines and very infrequently in the show ring, as it's counterproductive to have a reserved and sharp dog in the ring in most cases.

    "Pugs who do not have strong human leaders can become jealous, and begin to display guarding behaviors, such as guarding furniture, food, toys, or other spots in the house."

    Really... Seriously... Pugs are jealous in general and they really could care less what's going on as long as they're being fed and loved... I don't think they even know HOW to guard...

    "It is relatively inactive indoors and will do okay without a yard."

    Izzie, Chai, and Ruby obviously never got that memo...

    "While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as instinct tells a dog the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human."

    Did Cesar write this page on Pugs?

    "This breed is a seasonally heavy shedder."

    If by seasonal you mean all the seasons...

    If you look at the bottom of DBI, you'll see this huge text box promoting CM as the "cure for everything". :rolleyes:

    Just saw that... DBI never had much credibility in the first place, i think that just puts it in the negatives now...

    Wow I love DBI, lol...

    "The Plott has a curiously sharp and high-pitched voice, unlike the deep-throated howl common to other coonhounds."

    While my older female screams on tree, apparently the two younger foghorns missed this memo. How can you make a generalization like this about an ENTIRE BREED?!

    "The Plott Hound is not recommended for apartment life."

    Oops.
    Their basset information, on the other hand, is spot on - most people don't get this part right:

    "They are very inactive indoors but outdoors they will run for hours in play if given the chance."

    Usually I hear that they're lazy and not prone to activity. At all. Even though they're rabbit hunting dogs. ?!?

    DBI on Chihuahuas

    "Play can take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, as with all breeds, play will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk."

    Primal instinct? Since when was being on a rope and harness part of primal instinct...

    Yeah, they had the "no apartments" recommendation for Aussies as well. Uh...that year we spent in the Shoebox studio, what would that count as then? And I had *two* dogs in there...Sawyer and Virgo.

    I was gaily informed the other day that Travis was a Toy Pom(P) because Papillons only live in America. LOL! How is that for some dog breed info?

    From DBI
    Though drop ears do happen, they're not as common as rose (both are acceptable), and truthfully we pride ourselves on the fact that this breed ISN'T exaggerated!!

    This is my favorite "history" of the breed.
    Ahhhhh the bullpookie of this story always tickles me. And the whole "120-150 worldwide" is utter crap. There are way more than that out there.
