The other day, the Boy and I were discussing what kind of dog we’d like to get. I’d like to get a Boxer, and he wants an Icelandic Sheepdog. I really had no information about this breed, so I listened to his sales pitch, but what was humourous to me was when he was describing the temperament of the dog.
Him: Well, they’re friendly, loyal, playful and unafraid. They get along well with other pets, and they just have those kinds of eyes that make one seem adorable. A totally lovable animal.
Me (laughing): It sounds like you’re describing yourself.
You make good points, but I love the Boxers because they have those qualities too, however with the little bit of Bulldog that’s in them they retain that bit of “Fuck You” look when crossed the wrong way, which is what I like.
Me (pausing): Which is more in line with me…walked right into that one.
Him: Just remember you said it.
What type of animal best suits your temperament?
