Dog Diaries – Dog Personalities Part 1

Have you ever taken notice of your dogs personality?
All three of our dogs have very different personalities and levels of intelligence.

These dogs know when specific things happen. Example, Scrappy listens and watches the washing machine on its final spin, then she yaps and comes to let me know the washing is ready to be hung outside, I must then go and get the washing and put it outside, otherwise she doesn’t stop coming to call me. Then its the big race of who can get to the other side of the garden first, she nips at Shaggy’s legs to slow him down and he in turn nips at her neck to slow her down. Same story if you let them out into the front yard, the race to the gate this time. Scrappy plays with Shaggy as if he was a Sheep. She tries to herd you, so you go where she wants you to go even though it might not be where you want to go.

All three dogs have been taught to sit before they get there food. Scooby gets her food first and sits nicely, she is always enthusiastic about getting her dinner. Shaggy well what can you say, he takes some coaxing to get him to come and sit for his food, once he has sat he sniffs the bowl and leaves, if there is nothing nice in his bowl he want stay. Scrappy want sit unless Shaggy has just come and sat for his food. Other times she lies where her bowl is suppose to be and then won’t get up and sit for her food. Other times she also needs convincing to come and get her food. Scrappy is a very messy eater, she chews the food outside the bowl, in the middle of the floor, outside where we occasionally leave the pellets, so nobody will eat it. There is always a mess beside her bowl. Shaggy and Scrappy never rush to eat, you could never actually get them to eat. Scrappy can be lazy and will lie down to eat her food.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another example is when Dries arrives home from work, they listen to the sound of the car coming up the road, by the time the car is at the gate they are up and ready, Scrappy barking, they like to welcome you home in a big way, Scrappy barks and yaps, that horrible yappy sound dogs make. Shaggy barks a bit and cries, Scooby barks and occasionally cries at Scrappy for Scrappy to leave her alone. On special occasions Scooby and Shaggy will give you the welcome howl, (the way a Wolf howls).

 

All of our dogs have had a time whereby they all watch TV. Scooby’s favourite programme is ‘Meerkat Manor’ on National Geographic Channel. Shaggy tends to watch the same thing. Now Scrappy is a different story. Since she first arrived she has been obsessed to watching TV. Any channel with anything on it and often she will go right up to the TV and search for where it is if something goes missing off the screen, that was there a second ago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scrappy talks, moans non stop, you certainly know she is around all the time. She makes her opinion known when you are busy in a conversation. Occasionally she will talk to the TV. To be continued…

About us:

These are my dogs (see pictures), Scooby who is 12 years old, our ‘old age pensioner‘, Shaggy is nearly 6 years old our ‘adult‘ and the latest addition, Scrappy our ‘puppy‘ who is nearly one year old. Our aim in getting Scrappy was so that she can learn as she grows up from our two older dogs. Scooby is a cross border collie – spaniel and according to Shaggy’s records he is a short haired border collie, Scrappy is a pure breed border collie. All three dogs have very different personalities. All the dogs have recently gone to the Vet for their yearly checkups. The Vet says as Scooby is getting older her bones have muscle degeneration, the Vet also suggested, that Shaggy could be suffering from arthritis in his bones.

They don’t like strangers coming into the house. They will bark until they are used to you and if they are comfortable around you, they will come and sit by you. They tend to be around us all the time.

Scrappy and Shaggy both get on well together and play. Scooby is not so keen on Scrappy, if Scrappy comes near her she will growl or even get up and move.


At night the dogs are left to wander and settle where they are comfortable. Shaggy chooses to sleep in our room on his own blanket. He is the only one with a blanket, he likes comfort. Scooby goes between the kids rooms and Scrappy does the same but also sleeps in our room. When she wakes at dawn, she quickly goes and wakes up Scooby.

They are fed in order of seniority, in other words Scooby’s bowl goes down first. They sit and wait for their food.
They each have their own places to eat, but sometimes steal if they can get away with it from each others bowls. We watch them and they know this. They all love treats and dog chews.

Pooch and Mutt

 

Where we are, is where the dogs are. I work in my office during the day and the dogs are never far from us, normally one in front of my chair, and one each side of my chair. I can’t move my chair for dogs, and its even more difficult if there are two of us in the office, then we battle for space between the dogs and they don’t want to move. They like to sit in front of the office window watching the world go by, often a bird will land on the tree or ground or a lizard might wander past. They can just see down the street, so any movement and they are there ready, watching and waiting.

Scrappy is our blue eyed girl, she has one brown eye and one blue eye, (this is part of border collie features). The coats on all three dogs are very different, Shaggy’s coat is quite course.

Scrappy is soft and cuddly, Scooby’s coat is long and prone to tangle and knot. She visits the Parlor every now and again. Scrappy likes to watch TV and often goes right up to the screen and puts her nose there. Scrappy is able to occupy herself by playing with a big leather ball, she plays and runs around with it, having fun.
