So you wouldn't own a dog that looks like a wolf... Many people would. It is their passion. Yours is for a retriever (I am sure you must work them - you wouldn't have got them for looks judging by your previous comment as that is not a valid reason (purpose) for a dog?)

Well... I think that looks is as good as purpose as any. And MOST people buy dogs for looks these days anyway. Or personality. NOT working ability. Look at toy dogs - what use are they lol! (joke!)

But yes.. enough is enough and it is WAY past my bedtime.. Even the dog has got bored and gone to sleep

like i said before, sometimes companionship is as good a purpose as any...

my chihuahuas were not bred to do anything special, i have chihuauas because i love the way they look and i ADORE their personalities, from what we can find they were never bred to do anykind of work...they were bred simply for looks and for companionship...

and ill tell you...
they do a pretty damned good job of it...

i suppose im kind of playing the devils advocate in this one...

But it just bothers me that people seem to place companionship low on the list of jobs dogs do...and i personally think its the one they do best.

There are certain qualities people look for. I went the route I did because I knew the family the dog came from, I wanted a husky/malamute variety of dog but with more versatillity and resilliance, I wanted an easily impressionable dog, I wanted considerable intellegence, plus a variety of other traits. I won't lie and say that some of the appeal wasn't the wolf-ish features like appearance and build, but they were a mere portion of what made the whole package appropriate for me.

I've always wondered why people who sell and give away exotic and unproven breeds do so to idiots when there are so many smart people out looking to make great pets of them.
