I don't have stairs so my Doberman can't hang out there. He *is* very well behaved in the car, but that hasn't been typical of my previous Dobermans.

He has "the look" down pat. The smiling is genetic, they either have the gene for it or they don't. So far my puppy hasn't done it, altho I heard one of his brothers smiles, so he might do it someday.

He is a determined counter surfer, but he's the first real counter surfer I've had.

Does your dobe like to...
1. Lay or sit ON you when on the couch

Not to mention SLEEP on top of me at night...All 50+ pounds of him...

2. Insist on sleeping under the covers

Seldom...He isnt really a "covered up" kind of guy. :)

3. Sleep curled up in the smallest ball ever

Haha, no way........He spreads out like he owns the place.

4. Steal your socks and underwear

Biggest sock theif on the block.....He is smart too, hides them UNDER his big dog bed in the living room, I have to go check there everytime I do laundry.

5. Headbutt you

Haha, Oh ya.......His nose is his 5th paw.

6. Give you a kiss

Or a hundred....

7. be a velcro dog...always want to be in the same room...at your side...etc

If he is awake, yes....If he is sleepy, he is on his dog bed, he is addicted to it.

8. knock a couple of people on their butts when playing outdoors

Haha, he isnt big enough yet...We will see.

9. make a chewbacca sound (dont know how to spell chewy)

Hmmmm, whats a chewbacca sound?? He is VERY VOCAL though. He is the loudest "yawner" I have ever met.

10.Play tug of war with the leash sometimes on a walk or run

He better not! :p

11.sleep with a toy still in their mouth

Haha, no...but that is funny.

12.Smile when you come home (that it's not a snarl its a smile look)

Not yet, but he is never really left home. They go everywhere with me, grocery store...friends houses...wherever. Very rare that I leave them home, they pout if I do. I hope he is a smiler though :)

13.Prance around like a horse when excited

YES! And it is so friggin cute! I love the dobie prance!

14.wiggle their butt

He is a big time butt wiggler.

15.stretch every time they get up from a long nap

Oh yeaaaaah.

16.hangout on the stairs

Nope, I have a baby gate up. We just have one big room upstairs above the garage (bonus room or something) so I use it as a "craft room" it would be a disater if he got up there unsupervised.

17.counter surf by using their long nose

Not tall enough yet, oh I hope not....

18.sit next to you while you eat dinner (doesnt have to be begging...Duchess likes to just to simply be by you...she doesnt really beg)

Nope, he could care less......he has never had people food, so he just ignores us.

19.Do anything for a treat

All at once! When I pull the treats out, before I say anything, he will come, sit, lay down, bark, stand up, turn around, then sit. It is so funny to watch.

20.kill their stuffed toys

Oh yeah!

21.smack you in the face with their paw

Yes, even though he knows it's bad.

22.Give you that look out of the corners of their eyes while laying down

Haha, yep.

23.be really well behaved in the car

Very, he sits in the passenger seat like a person.

24.eat the mulch and sticks like it is their dinner

Used to eat the mulch, now he will chew on the sticks in the backyard sometimes. However...today I went outside and he was literally chewing on the tree. Like had his mouth wrapped around the base of the tree (he is teething really bad right now)

25.lick other dogs ears

lol, Pipers, yes.

26.watch you from a window when you leave the house

I thought he was going to come through the window yesterday when I was mowing. I had to come in and put him in his crate, I think he thought the lawnmower was trying to "get" me.

Can we add "bouncing" to the list? Chi does all of that and more! She bounces when she's excited, it's hilarious! She's always done it and probably always will :) Our first obedience instructor said I should not allow her to do it but I just can't imagine Chi not bouncing when she's happy :)
She is happiest when she's touching me, if she isn't touching me, she wants something in her mouth (can we say insecure?). She doesn't just steal socks and underwear but remotes as well. We have to search for the remotes almost every single night and most of the time we'll find them either in or under one of her beds!

Does your dobe like to...

1. Lay or sit ON you when on the couch
~Gracie puts her elbow right into my thigh.

2. Insist on sleeping under the covers
~Yes. When we tell her "off" she will try to climb under the blankets to hide from you. That way you wont be able to see a huge lump under the blankets. ;)

3. Sleep curled up in the smallest ball ever
~All the time, it is so cute.

4. Steal your socks and underwear
~She picks up socks and throws them around, but doesn't really steal them.

5. Headbutt you
~I think with this question we need to ask, is she a doberman? Of couse she head butts me every chance she gets.

6. Give you a kiss
~Not at all. You have to beg her to stop giving you kisses. ;)

7. be a velcro dog...always want to be in the same room...at your side...etc
~She's my girl, so of course.

8. knock a couple of people on their butts when playing outdoors
~She doesn't really knock anyone on their butts, she gives them one of her tug toys and drags them into the muddy lawn.

9. make a chewbacca sound (dont know how to spell chewy)
~I don't know what chewbacca sounds like so I can't say for sure. But she does make a hourse noise when she sniffs to much, she also can sound like a pig without the squealing.

10.Play tug of war with the leash sometimes on a walk or run
~She has done that a time or two. Go back to question 8, the leash counts as a toy at times. Lol. (It really doesn't count as a toy but she makes it one.)

11.sleep with a toy still in their mouth
~never.

12.Smile when you come home (that it's not a snarl its a smile look)
~All the time.

13.Prance around like a horse when excited
~Lol, yes.

14.wiggle their butt
~If her butt doesn't have a wiggle to it I know something is wrong with her.

15.stretch every time they get up from a long nap
~Yes.

16.hangout on the stairs
~Don't have stairs so no.

17.counter surf by using their long nose
~Once in a while.

18.sit next to you while you eat dinner (doesnt have to be begging...Duchess likes to just to simply be by you...she doesnt really beg)
~Yes but she begs.

19.Do anything for a treat
~Depends on the treat.

20.kill their stuffed toys
~She is a serial stuffy killer.

21.smack you in the face with their paw
~Not to often.

22.Give you that look out of the corners of their eyes while laying down
~Aww, yes. It makes me melt every time.

23.be really well behaved in the car
~LOL, what does that mean? Gracie paces in the car and tries to bite all the cars around us. Why in the world won't people stop driving so they can pet her? She doesn't understand...

24.eat the mulch and sticks like it is their dinner
~Of couse. I thought that was part of a well balanced diet.

25.lick other dogs ears
~Yea, I just thought is was the mothering side of her.

26.watch you from a window when you leave the house
~All the time.

27. bounce
~I think so.

28. Spin
When she gets excited she will spin.

yes, to all, and add #29 the rear end "poke". They come into a room like when I am making dinner and poke me in the butt and then just trot out of the room like a drive by poke. I think its their way of saying "hi there"

Does your dobe like to...
1. Lay or sit ON you when on the couch
I didn't think it was possible to do it any other way

2. Insist on sleeping under the covers
pollo prefers his own fleece to sleep under - apparently our sheets aren't soft enough

3. Sleep curled up in the smallest ball ever
only until Jason and I get into bed. then he stretches out

4. Steal your socks and underwear
Had to remove one sock surgically from Cody at 4 months - after that the whole vet office called him sockboy nothing else.

5. Headbutt you
pollo not so bad. Cody gave Jason a wicked shiner about a 6 months ago. Cody also gave a few male guests some headbutts in their crotches - and yes the girls and I laughed!

6. Give you a kiss
did you mean spit wash or kiss?

7. be a velcro dog...always want to be in the same room...at your side...etc
Cody would like to try to rest his head in my lap when I was on the toilet.

8. knock a couple of people on their butts when playing outdoors
not so bad

9. make a chewbacca sound (dont know how to spell chewy)
they argue with us and have to have the last 'word'

10.Play tug of war with the leash sometimes on a walk or run
we discourage tug of war

11.sleep with a toy still in their mouth
Apollo sleeps with toys between his front legs

12.Smile when you come home (that it's not a snarl its a smile look)
happy boys!

13.Prance around like a horse when excited
like Chi apollo bounces - he should have been named Tigger

14.wiggle their butt
with no tail to speak of they have to wiggle their butts

15.stretch every time they get up from a long nap
bit dober stretches front AND back legs

16.hangout on the stairs
pollo also chases the sun - once the sun moves off him he moves his nap spot

17.counter surf by using their long nose
Cody was notorius for taking dishrags - he also slunk away without looking at you - even tho we would be talking to him - like he thought he was invisible and we couldn't see him

18.sit next to you while you eat dinner (doesnt have to be begging...Duchess likes to just to simply be by you...she doesnt really beg)
That's my boy pollo

19.Do anything for a treat absolutely

20.kill their stuffed toys
and leave the stuffing all over the house and just drag around the 'skin'


21.smack you in the face with their paw
no boxing, but would make a great goalie

22.Give you that look out of the corners of their eyes while laying down
just checking up on everyone - also will lie down at the mid point in the house if we are all in different rooms - has to keep an eye on everyone

23.be really well behaved in the car

Cody NEVER!!! pollo is pretty good. but opening the car door is the best way to get him back when he slips the leash.

24.eat the mulch and sticks like it is their dinner
nope - pollo is a fussy eater.

25.lick other dogs ears
haven't seen that one yet

26.watch you from a window when you leave the house
we have more dobersnot all over the bottom windows on either side of the fron door andt he bottom row of glass on the back door. we are completely safe from peeping Toms - no one could ever see in if they tried~

I think chi is the only ohter dobe that does this on the forum, but pollo rests his nose on the far edge of the water dish and licks the water up the side. any body else have a dog that does this? I really have to work on getting a picture.

ROFL are you kidding, I only wish. Both of mine dunk their whole noses in the water and walk off dripping a few feet away. I've given up mopping behind them, it is a never ending battle. :3dbiggrin

Bruno does almost if not all of the above LOL He also thinks he's a lap dog. So when I'm driving he wants to sit on my LAP lmao. Silly boy.

I also think he sounds like Chewbacca HAHA. We always call him Chewy because of it.

I guess the only thing from that list that Ava has not done or doesn't currently do is play tug o war w/the leash. For that I am thankful!

However...

9. make a chewbacca sound (dont know how to spell chewy)
I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I read this. Ava and Scoob like to lay together, put their muzzles up close to one another and make those sounds. I always thought it was cute but now that you say it, she does sound like Chewbacca(or however you spell it ;) ).

I had to laugh when I read this. I spent about 30 min today trying to get a pic of her drinking. I never realized how hard it would be to get a dog to drink on command LOL. My goal for this week is to get a picture of her drinking :)
