    lazy dogs

    how lazy is your dog?

    i saw a guy walking his grey hound in the park and that sure was funny. he would take a couple of steps then turn around with his hands on his hips waiting and calling his dog then another few steps. it was like he was walking a toddler.

    the dog on the other hand looked like he was grazing, slowly swaggering zig zagging around with his nose in the grass. it was like the owner was walking a sheep. the dog looked really young, fit and healthy too. i've seen other dog owners waiting for their dogs, but alwas becasue the dog was off running hither and thither ignoring the owner. this grey hound was just slow and lazy and had a "couldn't give a sht" attitude. very funny.

    Give the poor greyhound a break. He was just checking his "pee" mail.

    I have two greyhounds....they are a very lazy dog. Most people think because they are ex-racers that they would be hyper type dogs. Just the opposite. They lay around and sleep about 23 hours and 45 minutes per day...ok maybe an exaggeration, but not by much.

    They don't call them "the world's fastest couch potato" for nothing.

    Wait - what? These exist????

    I own a hyper/happy/ball loving/walk loving/bike ride loving/swimming loving/tug-o-war loving/de-stuffing loving golden retriever. People still ask me how old she is (in that "awww what a cute puppy" way). Then they look sorta awkward & uncomfortable when I tell them she's 6.

    About 10 years ago (before these poochies) I had a black lab (mix). I had him until he died when he was about 8 years old. That dog still acted like a complete puppy with more energy than I could ever dissipate until the day he died.

    Labs are great dogs too......but notoriously VERY ENERGETIC.

    I got my girl so we could do stuff together, mostly mountain bike.

    Now she's an acceptable level of hyper. When she was younger, I thought I'd never be done walking her/playing with her. We could spend HOURS at the dog park, and she'd be good to go again after napping in the car on the way home (a whopping 20min drive).

    Let's just say my dog goes to bed because he's tired of napping all day.

    My dog has 2059 different spots in the yard to sleep.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    hehe - my little dog (RIP) always traveled with us everywhere and loved her walks, but when she didn't want too she was one stubborn doggie.

    Nothing like walking at a good clip down the sidewalk and then start dragging a boulder behind you - look back and I'm dragging her as she's sitting down. Nope, nu-uh - no more of this walking stuff.

    My dog is not the lest bit lazy and she's eight years old. I take her to my parents house every weekend. They have four acres with tons of tasty little animals for her to dig up and eat. Stupid dog cost me 300 bucks a little while ago. The vet showed me the x-ray and saw a lot of little critters in there. Even after messing herself on my couch, I still love this dog.

    My dog has 2 speeds: Sleep, and hyperactive turbo crack monkey. The latter usually lasts until she's exhausted herself of all energy reserves and simply lays down to sleep right in the middle of whatever she was doing.

    I guess I've never seen her go long enough to exhaust herself then. She's always been hyperactive turbo crack monkey when I've been there. That's why we (ASCII and I) have tons of fun!!!

    Lets see. Last weekend I caught her eating a mole. Earlier in the spring she decided that eating a little bunny made sense. Squirrels are also very evil animals in her eyes. Chases them constantly but those suckers are quick. Once in a while, she'll try to eat a kitty or two but the kitties always win.

    Maxx doesn't have any legs. So we just prop him up in different positions for fun. Here's the, "I look attentive, but I could really give a sh**," pose.

    This is the "Flat on a couch," pose. Every 15 minutes we roll him over so he won't get too cooked on one side.

    This one, I just threw him across the yard at my wife and he landed upright. Usually he lands upside down. So this was good enough for a picture.

    Is she a little thing? I mean to find little animals in her - would have thought she'd digest them?

    You mean he has little short legs, right?

    Na, she's a pretty decent size dog. She was acting funky one day so I took her into the vet. The vet took an x-ray of her and we found what looked like two moles or mice in her.

    She is so zen while hunting that nothing will stop her. She sprained her front left leg a few weeks ago digging. You would think that would stop her. Well, while mowing the lawn last weekend I found a nice new crater in the septic tank mound. Stupid dog is stupid. She re-injured her leg. This weekend she is going out on a leash and 'doesn't allowed to play'.
