ABC Wednesday! N is for Nature of the Beast!

When considering adding a dog to your family, consider the nature of the beast. WE are dogs after all, and many dogs follow the genetic code that has been hardwired into them .

Terriers love to hunt and smell out rats! I know he is hiding in the shed , I can smell the vermainy varmit!

Pointers need to run and hunt! It is just their nature.

Sighthounds live to run, their instinct to chase can be triggered by anything in the distance they feel they need to chase.

Herding breeds are driven to herd, it could be your kids or cats that they end up herding.

Coondogs howl !

Retreivers love the water and use any excuse to get in and get wet.

So when you consider adding a dog to your family, consider the nature of the beast!

Jean, I saw the comment u made on my blog and almost fell back laughing. I remember exactly the sign u have described! I was in school then! Singapore is my country, my home, [wink] where I'm sitting right now. You & your brother can come visit again, we have no such signs any more. :)

An important lesson in this post for all dog owners. I enjoyed reading your comment on Debs post about the no long hair sign. Happy ABC hunting :o)

Good post. So many people get a dog and then get angry when he does what he was bred to do.

How do you get your odgs to behave, mine usually pull out the tongue and turn sideways whenever I point a camera at them :)))
Great abc shots.
