My 11 week Rat Terrier who just LOVES meeting new dogs and people is definitly trying to pee on small frou frou dog's heads. He seems to only like dogs that are big, or small dogs with short fur. He looks at these little fur balls and just lifts his leg and takes aim at their faces. I have a few friends with short haired dogs and their dogs apparently don't like long haired dogs. I dont' mean they attack them... they just don't want anything to do with them.

Does anyone have any insight? Is it just him thinking he is 'better' than them?

You're assuming that peeing on another dog is a sign of contempt, as it would be if you did it to another human. It's not. It most likely is an attempt to establish dominance. Or maybe the fluffy dogs he's met smell different because of grooming? How does he react to fluffy big dogs?
