<quoted text>Wow. I am thankful you did not really injure that knee and were not able to get up and get back home.
I remember reading some time ago that, to let your dog know you are the 'leader' is to always be in front and he/they follow.
But, on that hill, yes! I would let him take the lead for a while!
Yea, I thought about what if he broke my leg, then I'd have really been in a bad situation.

I can see the logic in that, but I've always let all my dogs be out in front when out hiking without any dominance issues. And it works better for me to keep track of them. I just wait for them to check out or chase whatever they wanted to check out or chase. But if they were made to follow me, I would not always know if they went to check something out or ran after some critter. So I would keep walking and leave them behind and would not know where they were.

I've read a few articles on this alleged need to be the "Alpha" to one's dog, but I've never had a problem with that. I've always gotten along fine with just treating them with respect and fairness, and in return they are more willing to get along with me and do the few things I ask of them. They're smart enough to know that they've got it made and I'm the key to it all.

Ouch.
See, and if it was soaked in hot sauce, you would be in "Hell"!!!

That was an amusing turn of the conversation just the same.

Oh, that can't be. Ithought SOME time would be spent in make-up. Really? Is that him in drag? How so utterly sad. He really needs to try a new profession. No WONDER he has all this time to spare and is on topix 24/7.
That was harsh, he spent all morning trying to look "pretty" for that picture. So you cannot imagine how bad he looked before that.

Except for one, all my dogs have always 'been in front' simply because I could not keep up with them. lol
My first dog was a mixed breed, Poodle/traveling salesman, and he didn't look like a poodle at all. He was the shy type who lived under my bed and, if I took him somewhere, he tried to stay between my legs or on my feet for protection by me.
He was a smaller dog than my last one and present one and he lived to be 18 years old. I still miss him. He went into every room I went into in the house, day and night.

But, yes! I would hope you never fall and break a bone out on a walk with your dog, especially at nighttime.

You also like them upfront because you can step in the dog crap twice. You always leave out the details!!!

I, too, am glad you didn't hurt that knee again. Hopefully, the same will be true today.
That being said, I LOVE that puppy of yours. Your description allowed me to see a puppy dog outside in the height of happiness.
That is my goal with any of the dogs I've had the pleasure of being the guardian of, to give them the best life I can give them. It's a spiritual thing with me.

Since God gave me a second chance by returning me to life after I "died" when just a child, I decided some time ago, that out of the millions of dogs put to death every year, to give at least a few a second chance at life. For having being shown the importance and sacredness of all life in God's plan for all souls, it's my way of repaying the gift of life he returned to me. And to not only save the lives of a few dogs, but give them a rich full lifetime of contentment, joy, and adventure. At least as best I can anyway.

So he does seem, as one of my friends puts it, as a happy go lucky dog.

That's interesting. I messed up my knee thirty-five years ago in a skiing accident and sometimes it swells up like a cantaloupe. I haven't skied since. The only time I remember yelling in complete agony was when Milagro go run over.
I remember you posting about what happened to your poor dog. And I can understand that kind of effect it had on you.

Many don't understand that life is life...man's life is no better than the dog's and man actually is inferior in an ability to love as a dog can love.

That is a spiritual thing you have..and I do believe it's your death experience that opened up your awareness of the meaning of life...it's quality is to improved by every person on this planet...each person deserves the best from you. And animals especially.

I understand. I really do. It's sad more don't get this.

Yes, dogs sure can be different. But so far I've only had one that had some bad habits that detracted from my liking him as much as the others. But that's what I get for not getting a puppy, and getting him when he was about two years old. When his bad habits were well ingrained and his personality pretty much set.

The general rule is that the smaller the dog, the longer their lifespan. Which is why the Poodle mix lived so long.

And I overlooked making it clear that for the most part when out hiking, I do not have my dog on a leash. I just let them go investigate or chase pretty much whatever they want to. So I don't have to try keeping up. Besides, with the monster "puppy" I have now, if I used a leash he'd just be dragging me all thru the woods. I told him several times to stop growing, but he's not paying attention.
