Traverse City Ice Princess
« on: June 13, 2006, 01:33:56 PM »
Well, that's her full name.  We call her Ice, and when Tammy and Stacy ain't listening I call her Icky cause I can't spell. She had the name when she came to us. She was 6 months old on the 8th of June. For just a pup she is really doing well. Catching on quick and has won me over. For some reason she gravitates towards me. She is laying at my feet right now even thought Tammy and Stacy are just in the other room.  She won't never take Sydney's place but she is quickly finding a place of her own. Its amazing how dogs can do that. The other dogs, even Scooter, love her. She really has brought a different life into the house. I can't get a picture of her eyes without getting red eye, and the red eye fix is way different then her eyes actually look. Her name comes from her color and those ice blue eyes.  You just cannot see in the photo how startling blue they are.

I'm glad to hear things are going well with the new one. 

I've had 4 dogs.  2 of them gravitated to women, 2 to men.  The 2 that were "women" dogs were raised with women as the primary caregiver.  I know one of the "men" dogs was raised by a man.  I kinda use that as my theory.  I'm sure someone will come along and destroy it, though.   :D

Well Ron, I hate to be the one.... :D

Ice seems to gravitate to me, but so far, men visitors shes's not fond of. The neighbor walked over in the yard yesterday to meet her, and she wouldn't have anything to do with him, Maybe it was because he approached us outside. Time will tell. She's been a sweety with anyone that has come to the front door, but since she has been here they have all been women other then my son, who she is fine with, and my brother in law the Dog Warden, who she was also fine with.

What an absolutely beautiful dog!   :)

I'm gonna support Ron's theory that dogs have male or female preference and take it one step further, strictly based on my own observation.  If, when the pups are very young, the primary human caregiver is male, the pups tend to respond better to the male leader of the house. If the caregiver was female the same result.  You can't really test the theory of preference outside what the pup considers his pack (or family).  Dogs will position themselves as near to whom they determine the  "leader" naturally. 
Our puppy, Buckshot is four months old and although he listens much better to me when I give him a command, and he loves me to death, he prefers to take his bones to Cowboy Bob's feet to chew them.   :D  Although our pup had females that did interact with him before he was weaned, the primary caretaker was male.

That's pretty much what I was talking about.  With our current dog, he goes right to my daughter, not my wife.  Does that mean she's the dominant female.   :D

We owned Aussies for about 20 years;  great dogs;  you'll love her.  Any livestock around?  They'll  try to herd anything.

 We used to have a Aussi/Sheperd cross.
That dog would kill any snake, any time, anywhere. Just tear 'em up. Pick um up and shake them so hard you couldn't see dog or snake, just a large blur :D
I miss that dog :'(

we've got an aussie/border collie cross, she's about 8 months old. She's super smart and likes to herd the kids since we don't have any critters.

 Those Aussies are smart dogs.  Be careful Jeff, or she will be runnin the forum soon.

Our Aussie was brought home by my brother Chris as a weeks old pup, She was Mom's dog but was always overjoyed to see Chris. Mom named her Sally Ann after a pet pig she had when she was a child. Mom and Dad are gone now and Sally lives next door at Chris's house. She sticks to him like glue. When he tells her he has to go to work she looks down right depressed. She has one tan eye and one pale blue eye. Mamma always loved a fuzzy dog.

 Oh yea, you can always tell where Sally has been, dem dogs shed ALOT!

Sydney was an aussie and he was the worst shedding dog I ever saw. 

I miss ice. :'(  usually this time of night I lay on the floor and throw her toy down the hall. she comes tearing back and sits in the middle of my back and drops the thing on my head. I was thinking about asking Tammy to play here at the hotel, but figured I better not go there. no_no
