#19 so sorry to hear. he looks like such a sweet boy. I have a 9 year old golden- they are the best companions ever.
They are all so cute! I love #27! So many that can have captions added lol #10 "Not sure if really taking me for a ride or taking me to vet" #20 "Life is so hard to escape sometimes."
27 is mine!!!!:D i sent this photo in more than 3 months ago! i was so surprised he was in this weeks cutest pets:D
#20 Life's so hard, it gets so heavy…
#33 Dogs are awesome… even when they make funny faces!
#3 Princess feet! ^_^
so much cute! yaaaay! I know #40 and her awesome owner
#40 thanks for putting my pup in here, berry! made my day
#1 sorry to have to tell you this but its very unlikely his eyes will stay blue. Almost all puppies have blue eyes, they will darken as they grow.
Sorry but I think your comment might be a little too authoritative considering you don't know about the dog. A A few breeds of dogs may have blue eyes into adulthood, such as Huskies, regardless of coat color. Also, having a light coat color, such as white, is linked to the gene for blue eyes. I won't be surprised if this dog's eyes stayed blue! PS He is cute!
Well Pat, I think it is a little too authoritative to assume I don't know what I am talking about.
I know what a Husky looks like and own a fully white dog that started out with beautiful blue eyes, spend all of my free time around dogs and puppies, stated it is "very unlikely" not "100% positive" they will not remain blue, that dog is not fully white its cream/tan.
And why would you hope someone has an all white blue eyed dog?
Both traits most often linked to blindness and deafness among other health and behavioral problems.
You burst someone's bubble about their dog and then continue to argue your point because you spend time with dogs? About 40% of American housholds include a dog so I guess a lot of people might have something to say on the subject. I said you don't know about THAT dog, IMPLIED you did not give a full factual picture (not very authoritative of me at all) and I did not assume the breed (I gave a general scientific overview of the situations which lead to blue eyes in adulthood). I never said "I hoped" they had a white, blue-eyed dog – I said the dog is cute and I referenced light coat color SUCH AS white. So again, I have to point out the gene link for blue-eyes in some breeds, such as Huskies, is independent of coat color and NOT linked to deafness. White or dilute coats and blue eyes are SOMETIMES linked to defects (which is what you said, so why assume the worst?). You are now arguing the same point as me – it is possible the dog will have blue eyes permanently – so keep calm.
Actually my point I argued was that most puppies will not keep their blue eyes, which is a totally acceptable and proven statement. You are arguing I shouldn't have made the statement because I don't know that specific dog, which is asinine on your part because not knowing that specific dog the odds it will keep its blue eyes are still slim. Its simple math. I understand you want to hold the torch for the minority, that doesn't change the fact the majority of dogs lose their blue eyes. The dog probably wont keep its blue eyes, end of story, you stay clam and continue to feed into your improper dog facts and information.
White coat and blue eyes are a byproduct of bad breeding in almost all breed and not "sometimes" linked to defects, its the biggest link to those defects.
So you are arguing an "odds in favor" of your statement when most anyone knows blue is not a dominant and/or permanent eye color for dogs. And you are going to say your original comment was just to be nice and informative?
I will keep holding my "torch for the minority" aka myself and my colleagues in scientific research. But obviously a degree in zoology with a concentration in genetics equates to "improper" information compared to your foundation of watching puppies.
Do some reading – I can back up everything with scientific research. I can tell you that Dalmations have been studied extensively for causes of deafness but other breeds have not. Scientists haven't even conslusively determined all of the genes that cause deafness in humans! This means it is not factual to make statements like yours, where you link an observable characteristic to a defect in the ear. This will get you started – http://www.lsu.edu/deafness/deaf.htm
Again, Frankie looks like a sweetheart and likely has no more defects or behavioral issues than any other dog.
Gees – I think there are some shirtless guys for me to turn my attention to…
Congrats on your fake degree in zoology but you spelled "Dalmatians" wrong …
Dalmatians and deafness is from over and bad breeding of a once popular dog.
It is probably a lot easier to find a deaf dalmatian then any other breed of dog which would make sense why it is the deaf dog that is studied …
You should look into more into Dalmatians, they are a excellent example of what happens with white coat blue eyed over bred dogs including blindness, deafness, health and behavioral problems.
I'll continue to "watch puppies" instead of listing all my fake dog specific qualifications to some stranger on the internet who is offended by 27 words that essentially are "your dog probably wont keep its blue eyes".
I do not need to do any more research, a fake zoology degree holding bully on the internet already told me "most anyone knows blue is not a dominant and/or permanent eye color for dogs." thus validating my original 2 sentences of simply stating that fact.
Nice vocabulary. That is all.
I am glad you caught my type error. I didn't know the argument was going to stoop down to type errors and grammar but in that case, do you really want me to "stay clam"? Come on – you have more than one error in your first post!
I can't believe I thought I would be allowed to state my credentials, as you had. I truly had the best laugh when you called me a fake zoology degree holding bully. Seriously – I just can't be in a bad mood after laughing like that.
You first "devil's advocate" statement ("sorry to have to tell you this but its very unlikely.." – like you did someone a favor!) was not really worth posting. My first statement was to illustrate, to anyone who cares to move beyond generalization, that there are legitimate reasons for why dog 1 might retain blue eyes as an adult. Everything since the second post has just spiraled into this wild argument (for the record, I am referring to the both of us being involved to this extent).
…fake zoology degree holding bully… best laugh of my day!
This has been the most exciting string on theBERRY in a long time. Thanks for the laughs guys!
You're welcome. Cheers!
What kind of dog is the fat baby in #12??! I can't tell if he's a pomeranian, or a german shepherd, or what
#27 So adorable! I need a puppy right now!
#34 Hounds have the most beautiful voices.
#20 Sometimes, you just can't escape life.
Also, #41 is absolutely adorable!
#27 is soo freaking cute!!
I had a puppy that looked exactly like #22. He grew up with me and at the age of 13 passed away. I miss my Beagle Bagel everyday. It's been 4 years and til this day I tear up at the sight of a Beagle. Kcco.
