Limit started lifting, licking, and teeth chattering at 12 weeks. Kastle chatters but doesn't lift. Eden, on the other hand, marks AND lifts her leg!

I've ALWAYS been a boy dog person. We only ever had females growing up, so when I moved out and got my first dogs...all boys and I was totally content. Still love working with my boys favorite work dogs are all females. I despise dealing with heat cycles but dang, they mature so fast and are so small and athletic and revving to WORK! Fun fun fun.

Growing up we always had males, so that is what I'm used to, but they were all neutered by 8 months. I Do want to try my hand at a female at some point, but really like my goofy boys. Remind me that i said that on our next walk when the boy insists on stopping to pee on all the things

9 months and still VERY much a puppy

Just sayin!

He's semi lifted his leg a couple of times, but that is it. He's not interested in marking, or peeing or Bodhi (other than a play mate... Humped her a couple of times as a small puppy, but not since).

He's very puppy like still, but they are one of those breed that "are slow to mature".

Bodhi definitely has the balls in this house, even though Fred's are HUGE. (Still haven't got pics...).
"Dogs are our link to paradise. They do not know jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing wasn't boring, it was peace."

Bodhi is the opposite of ignorance, the insight into reality which destroys mental afflictions and brings peace.

Yup, honestly, imo heat cycles are a pain sometimes but they're not that bad. Well, I haven't dealt with a ton of females in heat (we always spayed fosters quickly) but, yeah, totally worth it.

I would so much rather have a snotty girl with a great work ethic than a goofy boy who just melts when you touch him.
I have a snotty girl who melts when you touch her. How'd I miss out on that work ethic thing?!

Gusto never got into humping, and has never marked inappropriately (and still squats 70% of the time to pee), but the throwing himself onto the ground chattering and licking and drooling at girl pee was the breaking point for me. I had intended to neuter him around a year or a bit over; 10.5 months was when I was going to rip his head off over that particular issue.

This. Stan may not lift his leg, but he's constantly chattering and humping poor Grant.

Punky is a new member of the club as of today. She was having a ripe roaring time with an intact male Havanese stud dog owned by one of my students. They were playing and chasing each other, then to his shock she started humping him.

I prefer boys 100%. I mean, I love my little love cuddle bug who thinks I'm the center of his universe and just wants to snuggle and play and do the right thing when training. There is something about the big boogley "I love you so much please I want to do the right thing JUST LOVE ME!!" eyes lol

..but seriously he needs to stop peeing on his own feet. That is not cool.

This is Merlin. We go to wholefoods EVERY DAY. and this is him everytime I leave him outfront.

Credit of shark puppy goes to
all the sharkpuppy comics really remind me of Merlin

Ugh. Add Rider to the chattering/licking and marking club.

Battle for boydog vs girldog is on-going. I've always preferred girls, but there is something about them boys that keep me coming back.
