Did you know that AKC is the only registry in the world that does not allow intervariety breeding in the Belgian shepherd?

Almost all dog's feet smell like fritos. It's from the sweat glands on their paw pads.

my feet smell like Frito's sometimes.

did you know, sheltie standard calls for a dog between 13-16 inches at shoulder, but have been known to reach over 20 inches and 40lbs! and sometimes a sheltie under 13 inches can still be found

ps. i always though old yeller was a lab mix of some kind

That's up for debate. Some Pit Bull people have said its obvious he was a Pit Bull. While others have said he's obviously a Carolina Dog.

I personally think it's far more likely that he was a blackmouth cur. I may not be getting the exact quote right, but the the book specifically calls Old Yeller a "big yellow cur dog."

The author of "Old Yeller", Frank Gipson, is also from West Texas. Blackmouth curs are common in the area, especially for working cattle. But Carolina dogs are unheard of, and it's very unlikely that anyone would use a pit bull for working cattle...which was Old Yeller's specialty in the book.

Of course, we could all be wrong. He might be an oddly-coated standard poodle.

I actually never read the book, but in the movie the dog looked like a Lab mix.

Did you know that the Border collies used as hill dogs will move 10 miles for every mile a sheep moves? Most can go up to 100 miles a day.

I 've always had the impression that Old Yeller was a cur. I even have a book that mention curs and says Old Yeller was one in the book but was falsely portayed as a lab in the movie.

Next time when i see a pug, Ill ask him to let me sniff his feet.


-It is true that the 'pit bull' was originally bred to fight - other dogs. However the dogs lived at home as a family pet in the late 1800s and lived in the house with the wives and children of the men who fought their dogs for sport, so they needed to be absolutely reliable around people. Dogs that showed human aggression were culled - that means they were euthanized and never bred from. These actions have evolved a unique dog personality where animal aggression has absolutely no correlation to human aggression.
