Very cute. Reminds me of my dog - only instead of not recognizing his own foot he thinks another dog lives in the mirror.

Reminds me of my old viscious lab... On AFV they called it "Dog eat dog". It won the $100,000 grand prize.

Oh, I didn't realize it was on AFV!! It won the 100,000.00? That is great :D

Yeah... he'd never get a bone... unless it was for a video! :) Do you think he had a problem with his leg? I've never seen a dog hold it's leg that way just laying down if there wasn't something wrong with it.

Kudos again on the video Kismutt... it makes me laugh everytime! :thumbs up

Can i still respond even though the minute is up? :rolleyes:

On second thought, and viewing this tape again, i have to agree with LL1 on this. This poor dog is clearly disturbed, and i find nothing funny about that aspect of this video. I would also suspect that if someone were to put their hand near this dog and his bone, they would get bitten. Nothing funny about that, i guess it depends on the breed with some folks.

Angeleyes1437
July 11th, 2005, 10:35 AM
It all depends... to watch it makes you laugh because it's so crazy. Although if it was my dog I wouldn't allow that behavior and would be upset by that. He definitely has issues... he could be a previously abused dog or excessively spoiled dog, lol!! Some rescues don't test them or work with them well enough... I've seen agressive dogs placed in homes with children! It's hazardous!

I agree. :sad: I too saw the AFV when this video was on. I cringed. It's sad to see that people find vicious behaviour funny in these instances. Like the commerical where the boy has to wash a collie type dog that growls in his face the entire time. I hate that commerical.

Sometimes I must admit I can find the humor. My sister's Jack Russell Terrier growls over everything... but it's as if it's just his way of talking. He's not unhappy or aggressive. He just likes to growl... even when he's playing snuggling with you. Occasionally, he will talk (growl) is such cute ways... because he's infact just being friendly... but it's so crazy he growls to communicate his feelings that you have to laugh!!!

sammiec

Does he growl like that dog in the video to show his feelings?

Angeleyes1437

Fortunately no- he doesn't have mental issues or a leg stealing his bone. However, there are times when you rough play that he will show his teeth... or even do it when you say the word growl (which wasn't purposely taught to him). We know he means no harm- but anyone who didn't know him would definitely be scared. Animal Behaviorists, trainers...nobody knows why he does this or any new way to try and stop it.

I'm sorry but I disagree. My old lab was anti social and possessive and she probably would have reacted the same way if her foot raised up like that. She wasn't deranged. She was the runt of the litter and was almost killed by her mother as a result. We kept her away from dogs, and didn't bother her when she had stuff. She had a happy life and she was loved dearly. She never bit anybody. She never hurt anybody. And when she wasn't possessive, which was about 23 hours a day, she was cuddly, sweet and loving.

The people in the video are laughing at their dog. Can't we assume the best here-- the video shows one quirk the dog has. If the dog was only like that, do you think they'd be laughing?

And for the McDonald's commercial, I LOVE it. Been there. :)

Should Jemma be put down? The rest of this picture is actually my boyfriend hugging her. She growls when we hug her, when we touch her past 9PM, when we touch her paws, when we tell her she's crabby... Should she be put down? I guess none of you have had a growly dog. It's not all bad you know. It's like saying "If my dog pooped, it would be deranged and have to be put down."

Prin, you are right! My sisters dog behaves exactly how you are saying your dog behaved. We love him to death!! He is always growling and would probably be put down in a shelter... but we would never put him in one, so as long as we are happy with him there should be no problem.

You are right, it has gone too far yet again by saying the dog should or would be put down... who cares, laugh or don't. Right? I think some people on here were trying to instigate a fight with the OP over (which isn't hard to believe). Sorry if I'm wrong... it just looks like that to me from their wording.

July 11th, 2005, 12:31 PM
WOW, it sure seems as though people are taking everything to heart nowadays... can't say anything without someone assuming that it was directed to insult them. Must be the heat. :rolleyes:

My post said "in these instances" -- doesn't mean that everyone's dogs that growls is dangerous. That being said, we don't know the background of this dog in the video and it very well could have an inbalance and have bitten someone before... if I was to hug your dog and she showed her teeth like that I would be a little worried because I don't know her...KWIM??

And it's a public forum.. we're all entitled to our opinions. Take it or leave it, that's your choice. I didn't bash anyone or single them out for their opinions....

Our dog used to act just like that, when we would say "smile" ! we thought it was really funny!! She never bit us, or acted that way unless we told her to.
She also did that when she had a bone, and my brother would say "I'm gonna get your bone!!". (we were kids at the time)

Now some here may feel that's cruel, or that our dog should have been PTS, but she actually loved doing it!! Believe it or not, she knew it was just for fun and a game.

I also love that Mcdonalds commercial, as our dog hated bath's and would act like that too!! (we all knew she was just bluffing :D )

Sorry can you please show me the section where someone suggested that the dog be put to sleep?? The only part that I read stated that should the dog have been another breed it would have been PTS??

I don't see anyone here trying to start an arguement with the OP. It's all a matter of opinions. There should be no one offended by another opinion. :confused:

Prin

I don't find offence that you think the dog could be viscious. I find offence when you all jump in and say "He should be put down".

This poor dog is clearly disturbed, and i find nothing funny about that aspect of this video. I would also suspect that if someone were to put their hand near this dog and his bone, they would get bitten.

That's what I'm confused about here- if you have a pitty, would YOU find it viscious? I doubt it. Breed stereotypes tend to get lost after having a dog for a few years, aren't they? You don't see a pitbull owner walking around telling people his dog is on the "list" for a reason. Usually it's outsiders. Unless you're a moron, you wouldn't come into this dog's home and take away his bone if you didn't know him, would you?

It's the generalizations that get me. You are all supposedly against the BSL, but you are talking in the same tongues as the ones responsible for that law. :confused: :confused:

Kismutt

I have a puppy mill dog that is very very quirky. She is the blind one. She loves me to peices, but she does not like strangers, or kids, or even my teenagers. She wouldn't hurt a fly, and doesn't bite, BUT she growls when she doesn't like something (which is almost everything!!).

Her nick name is "Crusty".... "Crusty the Clown". I can do anything with her, and she would never growl at me, but she will growl at just about anything, and everybody else.

sammiec
July 11th, 2005, 12:50 PM
The way that I read those posts is that. Because this dog is NOT a "vicious breed" then it's funny. *IF* this dog had been a rottie or a pit, etc. then they would have been put down for exhibiting this behaviour.
No one stated that any dog with this behaviour is vicious and need to be put down. It may be disturbed, but no one said kill it!! :confused:

Not you sammiec... perhaps someone else??? This is the trend lately... going into innocent posts and causing problems. Dragonfly is right... how can a video link (which was supposed to give a laugh to us) turn into something bad? I know how... but I'm staying out of this petty behavior from now on!

I know about the video and have seen it before.

We each have dif opinions on things, and thats okay. It's good to see someone elses point of view and try to understand it, but in the same token you can still keep your own values.

Sometimes things are interpreted wrong. Maybe the internet, and typing...someone may mean one thing but its taken the wrong way only because you can't see them and there is no emotion. Hard to understand everyones views on this, because like I said we each have our own :D

Now this thread seems to be getting personal! This may be a record month for locking threads!!

So most people see it humorous and it won lots of $$$$$, BUT if it was a Pitbull, Rottie, Doberman or any other breed with a BAD REP - it wouldn't be so funny to most people and would never be put on AFV!!

Cactus Flower
July 11th, 2005, 01:59 PM
*Sigh*

What on earth is going on here these days? I am at a loss.

Just for the record, they interviewed this dog's owners on AFV, and they stated that the dog is otherwise completely normal, not deranged or dangerous. Just has an odd quirk.

AND there is a video of a Doberman ("vicious breed") that has been shown on a similar funny video program doing the same thing. The Doberman does it every time he eats, and is otherwise "normal", too.

One time, there was a GSD running around holding a bucket by the handle and the bucket flipped up and he ended up wearing it as a hat. Looked like one of those English guards with the furry hats. Very funny.

Safyre
July 11th, 2005, 06:27 PM
Prin - I like the horse that ended up with the bucket on his head a better.. it was a colt i think, very cute.

This video is amusing, and possibly disturbing as well. i worried that the dog might bite his own leg too hard and hurt himself. I don't think people would have found it as funny had it been a 'mean' breed, but that is the society we are in now.

Let's see if I can get in some voice of reason before this thread is locked, and hopefully we can all go for ice cream...

No one is saying the dog should be put down, and no one is attacking anyone, or trying to troll. I think what is happening is that almost everyone who isn't laughing is a pitbull owner, and understandably so. Let me use me as an example.

I saw the video on TV. I laughed, then I got angry, then I laughed again. I wasn't angry because I thought the dog was vicious. I was angry because, being a pitbull owner (or possible pitbull, as it seems), I'm a little sensitive and overly defensive. Whenever I see these videos of a dog snarling and snapping at someone, my first thought is, "If that was a pitbull, people would be running for shelter". And that is true. Every once in a while we see videos of little dogs snarling and snapping at someone holding it, and everyone thinks that it's cute because this little dog is vicious. Yet when a pitbull chases someone while playing, they're accused of attacking. A year ago, this was mildly annoying. Since the BSL debate, it's actually become infuriating.

Yes, the video made me laugh. But it also made me get defensive. No one is saying the dog should be put down (some are concerned that the dog needs help, because, well, that's kind of weird), but some are pointing out that that behaviour would not be accepted if it were certain breeds. Maybe some of us are a little overly sensitive, but I think you can understand why. At any rate, this was supposed to be a light-hearted thread. It certainly shouldn't be blown up into all this!!

More importantly...sugar cone or plain?

Oh remember the one where there was a Great Dane rolling on the grass beside a deep stream and he's rolling and rolling and flips in the water and freaks himself out? It was kind of sad to see until you realize that the people are taping him because they know it's going to happen, because apparently it happens often... He flips in so slo'mo' too. :D
