|Male dogs seem "easier" in general. More happy-go-lucky, eager to please, and definitely less "bitchy".
But today, watching Lupi's two male visitors hump eachother non-stop and mark every object in our yard, I thought how nice it was to have a female!
My female is more thoughtful than the boys we often dogsit. She's more independent, which I've discovered I really like, and truly enjoys "working".
An example of boy vs. girl behavior: Today while getting dressed, I noticed a sock had somehow ended up under the bed. Being lazy, I turned to the dogs. Lupi was resting in her bed while Cooter was right by my feet, adoring me. I asked him to get me the sock. He went off in the direction I pointed, then got distracted and started sniffing the floor. "Bring me that sock! Go get it! Fetch! Bring it here!". He ran back, empty-mouthed, seeking pets. "Cooter, " I said, "If you go under that bed and bring me that sock I'll give you a treat!". Cooter wagged his tail and gave me puppy-eyes. Meanwhile, Lupi, who had apparently only been pretending to sleep, jumped up at the word "treat", burrowed under the bed and brought me that sock in about 3 seconds.
How can I not love that selfish little creature?!
