Dutch - my odd boy

The definition of a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog's personality is listed in the official AKC Standard as "bold, willing and vigilant".  Dutch is none of these.

He is the 125 lb dog who is afraid of the mat in the bath tub or the coat on the back of the chair.  
He also is afraid of anything new, out of place or just something he hasn't noticed in a the fan overhead in the den. 

But oddly enough, he is not afraid to walk under ladders and tease the 7 Year Bad Luck Fairies.

Chloe the Smelly Basset, on the other hand, is just plain odd.

  1. I have heard it said that people take on the attributes of their dogs. Could it be that dogs take on the attributes of their owners?
    Just asking - food for thought.
