Wred Dawg (WD) was a Queensland Red Heeler. He was often aloof, had multiple character quirks, was task oriented, and extremely loyal…but only to a handful of people that he had deemed worthy of his attention. WD was also a fine judge of character and accepted very little crap. While his doggie social skills were much improved when we were together, he still had very little tolerance for people that treated him with a standard ‘pet’ approach.
He bit, and when he did it was usually because someone deserved it. Other times he did so because I think he simply enjoyed it.
Other than his obvious affectionate demeanor, he had a classic moan n’ groan pre-sleep routine, was a total wimp in cold weather, and could chase sticks, balls, frisbees, and squirrels with aplomb.
All in all, a fine animal companion. Since his departure for the great Kennel in the Sky, I’ve missed him tremendously.
