    What are some wierd things ur dogs do that are against what the breed was for? Jazz could enter retriever trials. She lives to retrieve ducks and will actualy go duck hunting with my dad. I have a duck hunting doberman. Emma is wickedly teritorial. if u come to my house its emma at the door not leting you in. She also herds sheep. Why cant my dogs be normal?

    Well Leo's aren't really 'for' anything LOL...but she is apparently MUCH calmer and laid back a puppy than is typical of her breed.

    My Beagles are ALL Beagle...LOL.

    Daisy's a lab mix, but she doesn't like to swim. She plays in the hose though.

    Normal and Beagle in the same sentence LOL. Let's not confuse "normal for a Beagle" with normal HAHA!

    They sniff, they eat (poop even), the sleep, they run, they love company. That's about it lol.

    Milo points.


    He also swims, but i don't think that's particularly uncommon for a JRT....

    Django will point the birds in the back yard. He also has the temperment of a Golden or a Lab, he has never met a stranger. I don't think he read the part of the Aussie standard that said they are reserved with strangers.

    Izzy would rather make friends with farm animals then herd them. We met a goat once and she play bowed at it *facepalm*

    Frodo wants to eat men and some children.

    I had a mentor who told me that there are more differences within breeds than between them. He really believed that a lot of the differences you see are environmental. He knew a GSD that had been raised in a litter of beagles and said she was nothing like a GSD. Howled like a beagle and only wanted to hunt rabbits. None of the suspicious, guardy behavior of a GSD, but she didn't have a suspicious mother to pattern.

    Lilly (beagle) is a brilliant champion at learning tricks. It just amazes people who are convinced the breed is stupid.

    Sarama is a mix, but she doesn't look like she has any pointer in her, and she points.
