I was woken up at 5:30 a.m. this morning by a ridiculous fluffy four-legged creature who apparently just wanted to go outside and rub her face in the ice. Oh, and to frantically dig at random spots in the driveway. Then she bolted inside (without peeing). Then when I lay down to rest a little, now fully awake, she hopped on my chest, curled up in a ball and went to sleep.

It's a good thing she's so adorable that I don't mind putting up with this nonsense.

Bruce does the same thing, but with dead mice buried under the snow.

I'm so sorry man, I know how much it hurts.

Last night I gave Bruce a extra-big hug and told him I loved him.

He responded by farting.

I like to think that Icarus would have approved.

I think you should take a breather from looking for another dog so suddenly.

I can understand quite well that feeling of loneliness by not having a pet who was once a fixture of your life suddenly not be there but these feelings have to run their course. Good and bad.

Basically, it's not about Icarus, my concern is about you. Step back and move on with your life for a bit. Let your mind throttle back a bit as you sort out your time with the little dude.

This. It took me a good six months after Mac died before I felt ready to move on. I would give it a little while before looking for another dog.

My feeling is that there's just this whole branch of the dog family tree consisting of various types of cur/tree walkers/coonhounds/etc. that developed as hunting animals in the American south and Appalachian region. The breed lines all seem pretty arbitrary because of all the cross breeding over the last several hundred years, and also because the concept of 'breeds' is itself fairly arbitrary. Only super nerdy dog show people seem to care about the minute distinctions between obscure sub-breeds and lineage. "American Hound Mix" is a pretty good catch-all IMHO.

In short:


Also hounds are super awesome in every way except off-leash ability. "No! No it's not time to go on an adventure come back! Aaaargh! *wanders around the woods for an hour looking for dog*"

American Brown Dog is another name I've heard.

And yes, hound mixes must track every scent ever smelled. Which is usually a dead animal of some kind. Which they must roll in.

My old dog (that now lives with my ex ) is a hound that must chase every single animal in the park, including squirrels, pigeons, rabbits, possums, raccoons, and swallows. She also has a favorite summertime game of running around the fields of the park chasing dragonflies. From any kind of distance, if you don't know what's going on, it looks like she's just zooming as around the grass as fast as she can, barking her head off and randomly leaping into the air. It's pretty .

Never caught a dragonfly, but she did catch a particularly lazy pigeon once, and was FURIOUS when she was not allowed to keep it.

Bruce doesn't really grasp the concept of chasing other animals. He runs after squirrels, but not in a "I KILL YOU" way, more like "come play with me!".

If he finds a dead one though, it's time to rub his face all over it.

Frank does this too. Big drat goofball. And if the dead thing died within range of our regular walks, he always goes over to do his weird spin dance and head dive into the dirt. He stops tracking poo poo if it's more than a few hundred feet from me though.

I don't think Frank knows how to be a proper border collie. Thank gently caress I don't care. He just wants to play with puppies all day at the park and carry huge sticks while wagging his rear end at everyone for a laugh, and try to get a pet from everyone.

I've been thinking about finding a veteran's old folks home nearby and taking Frank to visit some guys. He doesn't jump on people or push them around and is just a perpetual smile machine.

Bruce does the head-spin-and-dive thing too. What makes it worse is that he seems to think it's after-shave. "I just dove head-first into goose poo poo, hug me!"
