My cousin has an American Staffordshire Terrier named moses. I've never seen another dog like him. We go out on 30 mile rides with him, and he goes full bore the whole way!! About 20 miles into one of the rides we went down a long fireroad descent, where my speedometer was reading 35mph...moses was running right next to me...I couldnt believe it!!!! Another time we were riding along the edge of a 40 foot cliff...moses jumped right off of it, into 6 inch deep water, and then tried to climb back up it!!!! he made it about 3/4 of the way up!!!
On our last ride of last summer, we had moses with us, and we were riding along a cow pasteur, and moses took off...He wouldnt go after the bull head on due to its horns, so he tried to jump it from behind...bad idea because the bull kicked him sqare on top of his head. He was a little dazed for the rest of that ride, but fine once we got home.
Hi--I'm not at my home computer so I can't upload a photo but I wanted to tell you all about my most wondrous dog.
Molly She was part golden retriever and I am guessing her dad was a border collie. She could go on 20 mile rides with me and want more.
Never had any problem with her on the trail--just yell "track" and she'd scoot . And yeah--all it took were a coupla tires bumped into her and she learned. (Of course on our trails I rarely see any other users, hikers or anyone.)
But she died last May. So i don't have my mountain bike buddy any more. I miss her.
So love your dogs and give them a big hug. : )
Some video of me, with Sebastian following and leading. He's one helluva trail dog. He sets a good pace, and we'll get off to the side to let you by if you're starting to go downhill or if he just doesn't want to lead any more. Otherwise, he's always hot on my heels. Had him out with the quad over the weekend too - he hung in there all the way up to 27mph before we started losing him. He's so well behaved to at a year and a half it is unbelievable.
This is George. He's a puggle (pug/beagle mix) and he'll be two years old this September. He loves to go out on the trail. He learned really quick to stay on the trail and keep pace with me. He only weighs about 25 pounds. here are a couple pics. He was a lobster for Halloween last year.
I hope that you are a vegan.
The dogs are doing what they were originally meant to do.
For the record, I don't hunt as it is not my thing, but I do enjoy the fruits of those who do.
Now back to the original programming, more dogs please.
