So yesterday we were stuck in traffic for an hour and someone rear ended us. Nothing major luckily and we weren’t transporting. Only got home an hour late.

Edit: forgot about the 10 year old we transported for an hour who loved my homemade Star Wars mask (I have a few homemade cotton masks to go over my N95) so we talked about Star Wars.

All this talk of dogs has gotten me thinking that I want to get a dog. Given that I am on a semi-truck, I've got a few restrictions. Size and shedding being foremost. After raising Doberman's for years, I'm thinking that a German Pinscher would be a good choice. Anybody know of any good breeders that aren't puppy mills?

Ah...the black on white threw me off. Shoulda known from the docked tail....
It's not docked, picture just makes it seem so.

Black and white is pretty common, and is actually the dominant trait. For whatever reason in the US black and white is a DQ in shows so Liver and white is more common to see.

I care more about instinct than color and he is a rescue anyway.

Interesting...I have a brown and liver...most guys I've seen in my neck of the woods hunt over this pattern. White is unusual here (PNW) IME

Nah..to cliche and besides, I like a dog that when some idiot approaches my truck they're greeted by fangs from the mouth to the tail. Keeps the riff-raff away.

Liver and Roan or liver and ticked seems to be what most guys hunt over that I've seen. I guess there is still a bit of stigma surrounding black and white or solids. I assume because most people pick a dog based off looks (which is fine). With hundreds of years of breeding GSP's to be the hunting machines they are, worrying about color seems silly to me, but liver and white are beautiful dogs, even the solids are pretty cool.

Found this while looking stuff up the other day.

"Black is dominant over Liver
Roan is dominant over White
Solid is dominant over Patched
Two livers cannot produce black
Two blacks can produce liver if one or both parents carry the liver gene"

I'm not a big upland hunter so we're going to work on antler sheds and maybe blood tracking. We would work on retrieving but I might dove hunt one day a year and it doesn't seem worth it unless he just takes to it.

Ooh. In other fun news, got my name on the wait list for a concept2 rower.
I spent three years of my life on that thing. Death to it. Best workouts of my life... But death.
