    I have three, a blue heeler what has to drag me out of swimming, a border collie too smart for his own good, and a chocolate lab with a boxer mom and it shows in her behavior - she is paws-on. I've given them lots of toys, and one toy still survives - a red rubber ball.

    YouTube

    Sometimes that ball sits there, unloved. I play that tune, though, and they suddenly friend-fight over it. Boo always wins: when the others get there first they back off. I rescued Boo from abusers, and can't swat a fly without him running away.

    Is Boo the lab, the heeler, or the collie?

    I felt like fighting when I listened to it too.

    I have three grown kids, so am aware I'm not hip.

    Two of them hate this: YouTube

    Your best skills failed to find boo.

    She's really good-looking and friendly, but she ate two pairs of shoes, and my wallet, and my hat, and my shorts! And the knobs out of the car! And my bag of green!

    I guess I don't smack her around enough.

    If She ate my green I would call her Boo-Hoo:'(

    One of my best high school friends owned a Black Labrador Retriever, which
    he named Cooper out of respect for his Hero... NASA Ace Gordon Cooper

    I guess that Boo is the heeler, and was the abused dog. Heelers were common cattle dogs here for awhile, but they were feared by visitors...often with good reason

    You're right. He belonged to my son, who couldn't be bothered anymore. I mentioned he won't let me swim. He also won't let me have my own space in my giant bed. Try to shift him over and he growls. Sometimes he wants to be a lap-dog but Boo! you're too big!

    I have a duck pond and geese here, and interestingly enough, Boo is the only dog who is no threat to them.

    I share my space with a blue tabby. I can manage better with a cat than you probably can with a dog. He usually lies on my robe at the foot of the bed.

    Am I right, Ms Ale, the universe is off-kilter until your tabby occupies your robe?
