...assuming nobody else could bring their dogs to my work. Only me, me, me.

I would love to play tug with Annie outside of my manager's office before my performance reviews.
You got it Woody! If your the only one, it would be great. Otherwise all you have is an indoor dog park. :eek:
You're telling me. And the building I work at is full of hunters. I have a horrible bias against sporting breeds. Never really liked spaniels, setters, pointers...although I have to admit german wirehaireds are growing on me. My buddy has two of them for grouse, etc. Those dogs have some serious spirit and attitude, way different from any hunt dog I've been around. Comedians and some serious drive on them. Both of them hit a porcupine one day--my buddy was not happy at all. Really tore up their faces.

You mean like my office here at home?
:lol: @ Connie!
I suspect the social sturcture in you home ofice isn't going to be challenged as it would in an office full of family pets from 10 different families. :wink:

Woody, you want a really good sporting dog, look at working line Chessies. Talk about attitude. :eek:
Connie can tell you about pin pig drive. Right Connie?!

OMG, yes.

My granddog (BT) with a face full of quills had to pulled out by his tail and one back foot and STILL was fighting off the handler in his rage and his serious desire to go BACK IN THERE! Forget the face full of quills! Milo wanted to finish the fight, and no side trips to the emergency hospital, either.

Hours and hours (and general anesthesia) later, he was in pretty good shape..... but they don't take him arounf porcupine habitats now. He's still looking for that "pin pig" !

As Bob once said, that's when earth work stops being fun..... when the dog (often a JRT, if I may say that w/o offending anyone) has zero regard for personal safety.

Yeah, forgot about them. Schutzhund: Theory and Training Methods has some nice shots of some Chessie that got their Sch3 and a bunch of other stuff (why do I remember this stuff? I never remember important work and life stuff but I have a photographic recall of stuff I will never need :lol: :lol: :lol: ).

But German Wires are increasingly cool to me. Still don't want one but I like reading about other dog types. Really into reading about livestock guardian dogs, I think they are remarkably cool. Still don't want one.

I don't know what it is with sporting dogs. I have always preferred the looks and attitudes of terrier and herd dogs.

But I don't want those in my office, either. :lol: I need to tell my boss and HR that I have acute dyspastic deutscheloma that can only be kept in check by the presence of my dog. Heh.

Instead of a German Wirehair, you would be better with a Dratharr (sp). That's the working line GWH. They don't give a hoot about AKC. Just good working dogs. :wink:
