Aw thank you for the wonderful song. It has been a long time since this post. Thank you for asking. I do feel a lot different about Lucky. Training and grooming really helped me bond with him. I also just enjoy seeming him so happy and play. Puppy enthusiasm is so endearing. He is a keeper.

I do however feel the same way everyone here feels for poodles but for Maremma Sheepdogs. I like the way they move, their expression, their loyalty... I do think it is my favorite breed.

Thanks Snow...actually there isn't any music that I set that to. It's just a little poem. But it made me feel better and I do think they stay with you in a sort of indirect but definite our hearts and minds.

I am happy that you are starting to feel a bond. Hey, this can take time. It took me a very long time to really, strongly bond with my Doberman. But as we did like you are...lots of cool things together, it became like glue. It is so true that the more you do with these darling little creatures, the closer you become. But it doesn't always happen over night. Maurice was sort of a weirdo for a couple of months. He was really quite strange but dear nevertheless. We didn't bond right away but after some months, omg! We're attached at the hip, just like Matisse is to me. Well almost. I do think I have a little tighter bond with Matisse. But I do love them both the same. And then there's my old stand-by, who's been through thick and thin with me...Jose`. Sweet, old Jose`. He's not long for this world. And I'll be losing him some day soon no doubt. It's a cycle, this thing called life. And we just somehow have to accept it. It's sure not easy though, is it. But I am happy things are starting to really look up for you. You're doing a wonderful job with your pup.

Oh, I hear ya about these herding and livestock protection breeds or any protection breed. They are indeed attached big time to their owners. It's in them to be like that. I have had both herding and protection breeds and I know what you're saying. I'd have another Doberman if it weren't for their health issues. And size I guess. I've come to love these tiny dogs in my "old" age. I'm not that old. And I have come to love the poodle breed for it's wonderful, traits. My poodles are everything I could want in a dog right now...very loyal and attached, attentive, affectionate, endearing, compliant...just lovely.

Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend.

"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776
