I know you don't really want a dog but I want a dog to be my
companion. Specifically speaking, a CAROLINA DOG. I know that a
dog would affect the whole family but I think there would be more
positive effects than negative effects. Originally I asked for a
Labrador Retriever but since you said that you didn't want a large
dog I'm t4ying to compromise. Ite done a lot of research on the
Carolina Dog breed and this is some of the information I've found on
1. They are noted for the absolute gentleness of their
nature. They don't bite the hand that feeds them, the
wives or children of the hand that feeds them, or visitors.
2,. Carolina dogs love to swim and will far outlast a lab in
the water. They make excellent retrievers for water, and
unlike other breeds, do not have the "wet dog" smell. In
fact, they have very little smell about them at any time.
3. Carolina dogs make excellent house dogs. They are
extremely easy to house train and are noted for their
tendency to stay out of the way while in the house. They
are naturally mannerly and non-boisterous, They prefer
being an inside dog to an outside dog, but can just as easily
thrive in an outside environment in hot or cold weather.
4. Carolina dogs are easily trained and show an intense
desire to please.
He is a gentle, social dog, and bonds very well with children, enjoying play
and activities with them. The Carolina Dog is very clean by nature and is
easy to housebreak. He is intelligent and responsive and learns easily and is
not destructive. Not aggressive by nature the Carolina Dog will get along
with other animals if introduced to them at a young age. The Carolina Dog is
quite independent and responds best to a "partnership" relationship. The
Carolina Dog could almost pass for a smaller size Dinqo in appearance.
Although not requiring a great deal of exercise, the Carolina Dog should
have some exercise daily, and activities and toys to keep him occupied.
The coat of the Carolina Dog is easy to groom and practically takes care of
itself. It will benefit from an occasional brushing. Bathe only when
See? A Carolina Dog would be perfect for our family and lifestyle. It
would be MY companion and it would stay with ME all the time. It
would sleep with ME, go to the barn with ME, swim with ME, play
with ME, go on walks with ME, and make ME happy. What's so
terribly awful about that?
