Hahahaha I was a bit a dubious about that part! Ghillie's hair goes in every direction! If he wasn't asleep I would see if he is right or left pawed though!

Well Hubs and I were in tears at Alan's story of his brave brave dog, and that was before they said the dog had been PTS :cry:

An interesting bit that about "clockwise fur" that we're talking about.

First, find out if your dog is left-pawed, or right pawed by getting them to sit down and calling them - whichever paw they use to take off is their dominant paw. Interestingly, a right pawed dog is more likely to be a suitable temperament for a guide dog.

Also - have a look and see which way the fur curls on their body (if you know what I mean - they have a little knot somewhere where their hair grows in a spiral?)

If your dog is right pawed and his fur grows anti-clockwise he's more likely to have a Guide Dog temperament!

Glad I'm not the only one who cried at that bit :cry: but it was a fascinating programme.

it is all so true isn't it - they just understand everything you feel - LULU is only 8 months but she knows my habits (sort of) and moods

The beach is Old Hunstanton and would you believe it we were having a Doodle walk on it while they filmed.
Loved the programme.

Before Wilf arrived we'd never had a dog before so not experienced all those lovely characteristics. After having him in our lives and with the hard, sleepless puppy days aside, I just feel really privileged to have him. I gave him an extra squeeze whilst we were watching it! Such lovely stories :)
