  3. Yesterday
  4. I realized that some hairless animals exist (like cats!) but wasn't aware that dogs can be hairless too. None is as famous as Xoloitzcuintli, the Mexican hairless dog. It's pictured above wearing a very cute doggy sweater. Apparently, its hairlessness is due to a mutation thousands of years ago and I wondered how lucky it is that it happened to a dog that was typical for hotter climates. Most of the hairless dog breeds that I've seen during my research can be found in hotter climates. It's wonderful how nature does that.
  5. This breed of dog is featured in The Dresden Files (by Jim Butcher). I've been fortunate to have as a part of my family a wolfhound named Cali. She was, simply, magnificent.

How many Diamonds do you have? Note: Diamonds earned in previous months in activities of people who posted activities then but are having RL delays and/or computer difficulties and not able to post Diamonds earned yet, will be posted in another, maybe the 'next' count, saying when they were earned -- and counted 'now' (whenever 'now' is). In other words, you will receive your Diamonds. We're keeping track of them, and won't lose them. If you have a different count than what I have posted, please let me know and I'll check into it.

  18. The Doberman Pinscher is a well-known dog breed, often used for guarding purposes or as a show dog. Funnily enough, this breed came about due to the one thing everyone hates: taxes. The man who created this breed, Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, was a tax collector in the late 19th century. He was also a night watchman and dog catcher when it wasn't tax season. Back then, they had to make rounds to collect the taxes, which caused trouble for them because of people who didn't want to pay. Dobermann started crossbreeding dogs to create the perfect dog to ensure his safety and protection during these rounds. He looked for dogs with strong, steely, and intelligent traits to provide what he was looking for in a dog. The exact combination of breeds that make up the Doberman Pincher is unknown, though it is theorized to be German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and German Pinchers. As you may have guessed, the dog breed is named after the inventor!

  20. Unfortunately I currently do not have any pets. I live in a very dangerous area and after my little brown pug was taken from us and the little black one was threatened and almost taken, we needed to find a safer home for him. I also found saver homes for my cats after another was taken. Currently we are saving up to move so hopefully we will be able to adopt pets again in the future. I do however still greet the neighboring animals that I see now and again. I love animals and would love to adopt a few dogs, no matter the breed, some cats and we love bunnies. I try to feed the birds in my area or just watch them. Dogs are beautiful and loyal. I remember visiting a friend and her dog would become so excited to see me she would run up and start making circular spins, so I would say hi and spin in a circle next to her before letting her jump up and greet me. She never leaves my side when I visit. SO cute. So yeah, currently all animals in my life are those that live with others in other areas or what I see pass by from my neighbors.
  21. Oh I love dogs. I had two pugs, and yes they are the freaking cutest things with their little flat faces, I do not care what anyone says! So the little brown one would always make mischief for play. I came home one day and could see my dog in the yarn other than dirt flying into the air from the corner. He was digging. I called and his little head popped up from the dirt hole and he just bolted. I laughed so hard. My other pug was a pure velvet black pug that would really disappear in the night. I would bring him home a massive T-Bone steak and he would almost immediately bury it after chewing on it. I laughed because once he buried it, he would come peeking into the house from under the side curtain and I noticed he had no hair left on his upper lip from chewing and burring the bone. Like a little stalker he would peek at you from the door (we had a glass slide door). I would always come to play with him and he would bolt to fetch his blanket. He loved it if you covered him with the blanket and tickled him. Always made my day so much brighter. Especially if I got home from a long day and I would see him peeking at me.
  22. Although I have never heard of any of the names these dogs have, I have seen them quite a lot. Especially in historical art such as painting and statues. They are very cute to me in their hunched over lean kind of way. They seem to like the type of dogs you would consider compassionate and wise if they were represented as a character in a child's story. With that said they are known to be intelligent and stubborn dogs that need constant motivation if they don't feel like doing something. When I look at them they seem so calm and relaxed, even though they are fast, they don’t seem at first glance like the type of dog that would bother running anywhere. I find it cute and funny. Something I read and did not expect is that Borzoi Dogs are large hounds developed in Russia to pursue wolves and other hunting. I would never have guessed this seemingly gentle nature dog would be used to pursue wolves of all things, which I thought was fascinating and like I said, unexpected when I read it.
