Teeth

2 Jul

So, today I’m not here as a dentist, to show you which teeth is which teeth. That would be boring, and I hated listening to my dentist when he showed me that huge tooth… it was disgusting… No. I’m here to talk about something more interesting, and helpful. Baring teeth. You know how a dog bares his teeth when he feels that his owner or he is in danger.  By showing his teeth to other dogs or people, he is showing how strong and powerful he is. A dog whilst baring his teeth, looks awfully frightening. He pulls his ears back, showing his madness (he is not showing that he’s frightened), by baring his teeth AND pulling his ears back, he seems terribly strong, and confident. And if you look at his body, he is standing in an attack position ready to strike. His legs are open, ready to jump, and his tail is straight, and vertical, not under him, and not up in the air, and (this depends on his kind) the tip of his tail is slightly curled. This is his way of telling “I’m not happy!”

When he realizes, your not frightened by his warning, and your not backing of, he starts to bark. Not loudly, just like a “growling bark”. His legs are wider, and his first legs are slightly closer to you (if your standing in front of him) He’s looking in your eyes, which (for a lot of people) makes you uncomfortable, thinking about backing off before he strikes. His tail is still in the same position, as if it were a nail.

If your STILL not moving, (you’re an idiot), then he strikes. Face forward, so he can bite the sweet mercy out of you, he jumps on you, and “grabs you” with his first legs, so if you try to run, you fall. If so, he will stand on your shoulder, and wait for his owner to “finish you off”. If he is an “amateur” dog, he will try and kill you, if his owner doesn’t grab him, and take him away.

So I hope this post of mine helped you not to be an idiot, and backing off in the first moment he starts growling, and pulling his ears back.

REMEMBER! WHEN HE’S PULLING HIS EARS BACK AND GROWLING, IT DOESN’T MEAN HE’S AFRAID, IT MEANS HE’S READY TO ATTACK! But I hope, you’re not COMPLETE idiots, and you’ll be smart. 😉

 

Ps.: Sorry, there are no pictures, because the internets VERY bad, and the computer can’t download anything. When I get home, I will upload the photos.

Tail

11 Mar

When a dog‘s tail is held high, the dog is alarmed, or aware. When the tail is between the legs, that means, that the dog is frightened, scared. When the fur on the tail is also bristled, that means that the dog is ready to defend herself, or her pups. When the dog is wagging his tail slowly, that means, that he‘s questioning the environment he‘s in, or he‘s questioning the person, or the target. Large, fast wags mean either happy, exited, energetic dog, but it can also be a sign of aggression.

Thanks for reading, the next “chapter“ will be baring teeth.

Until then!
