|Like when I
tried to train him with simple commands, he would do something different
than what I said. If I said "Here boy," he would lift
his leg and pee. Finally I figured out that Barkley was training
me instead of the other way around!
Barkley just loves it if you say, "Good dog." Barkley likes to smile at that, but most people think he is baring his teeth aggressively. (I don't think Barkley understands what "aggressive" is, either. He's just friendly.)
Barkley was bred as a herder, and that is something he loves to do. He gets the "zoomies" sometimes. I guess that's just a lot of stored-up energy that has to get out. He zooms around, herding anyone he sees whether it's animals or people.
|Brian once said
Barkley was an Australian Dinghound, but
that was not quite true. Brian is a very loyal friend, but he
doesn't know much about dogs. We got into a lot of trouble about
the Australian Dinghound, but you can read all about that in the book,
Barkley actually is a very special breed, Brian discovered. The name is impossible to pronounce and even harder to spell, so I'll just show you pictures.
|Some people make jokes about how hard it would be to herd cats. I know that if cats could be herded, Barkley could do it!|
