Our dog in Iraq, Gooch, would chase tanks and eat cigarettes.
He got caught stealing from the cooks and they unleashed a fury of food coloring.

Did that wash out? If not that seems like it's a hazard to the dog's safety. Make it a lot easier to see him.

My dog actually comes to me for hugs when I am sad (I have no idea how she knows, but she does). She actually nuzzles my arm up over her and stays there until I feel better.

As a mastiff owner, it will be difficult to convince me dogs don't enjoy being hugged.
My dog loves it when I just lay on top of him.
Like, completely smother him.
He is my mattress.
He loves his job.

My dog is like a polar bear, but cuddly.

i have tibetan mastif.
it lets you lay on her, scratch tummy and behind ears, but if you directly put your hand on her head, she will get angry.

He enjoys being dominated. He has accepted you as leader and doesn't care if you exert your dominance.

What about a bear.

Dude bears.
BEARS.
User avatar #49 to #6 - predatorwolf (06/27/2013) [-]
Female Spotted Hyenas have a clitoris larger than the males' penis...

I'd say that wins over a bear.
#66 to #49 - anon (06/27/2013) [-]
Why do you want a pet with a huge clitoris, instead of a ******* walking furry tank with huge ass teeth and claws?

a Bear served in WW2 I don't think the Hyena's can beat that,or a bear in a fight,
User avatar #76 to #56 - rokkarokkaali (06/27/2013) [-]
If hyenas were in war, just imagine the nightmares survivors would have. Just hearing laughter as they get shot at. Happiness would be robbed. Any time someone laughs, there'd be horrible memories to relive.

I think Hyenas might have the highest jaw pressure out of any mammal, though.

Cuz they eat bones and stuff.
User avatar #88 to #56 - predatorwolf (06/27/2013) [-]
Hyenas don't need to beat bears; they just wait until it's dead THEN eat it.

Ok, seriously, can ANYONE tell me why Americans call them "seeing eye dogs"?

In England we cal them guide dogs. They guide people. It makes sense.

In America they call them seeing eye dogs. All dogs see. All dogs have eyes. It makes no reference to their job. Y u do dis.
User avatar #103 to #99 - augustusxxiv (06/27/2013) [-]
I'm American, and I hear them being called guide dogs along with being called seeing eye dogs. I don't know why it is, but both are used.
#107 to #99 - blanketandpillow (06/27/2013) [-]
Because they're acting as the owner's seeing eyes
User avatar #105 to #99 - needmesomebacon (06/27/2013) [-]
Thank you, was incredibly confused reading that as I've never heard of seeing eye dogs.
I'm British
#112 to #99 - toastersburnthings (06/27/2013) [-]
In america, we call crisps chips because they are chips of potatoes.
In america, we call rogers pancakes because they're like cakes cooked in a pan.
In america, we call an action replay an instant replay because it shows what happened in an instant, but not always an action.
We call candy floss cotton candy because it's more like cotton fluffs than floss.
We call a dummy a pacifier because it pacifies an irate infant.
We call a flick knife a switchblade because it's activated using a switch.
We call a holiday a vacation because a holiday is a celebrated date and a vacation is when you vacate the house.
We call jelly babies jelly beans because they look like beans and not ******* babies.
We call a metalled road a paved road because it is made of pavement and not metal.
We calla paddling poll a wading pool because it is the correct level to wade in.
We call a pylon a pylon (don't know why people think we call it a utility pole).
We call a musical quaver an eighth note because it is an eighth of the length of a whole note.
We call a toffee apple a candy apple because (at least in america) it generally is covered in confections other than toffee, mainly caramel (although I do love me some toffee).
We call a zip a zipper because zip is an onomatopoeia for the sound it makes, thus zipper .
Finally, to answer your question, we call guide dogs seeing eye dogs because they provide a metaphorical seeing eye in lou of the unseeing ones of blind people.

Our version of English derived from yours and improved upon it. (Most of) the changes we've made have been for a reason.

Although I'll still never understand why we drive on a parkway and park in a driveway.
#115 to #112 - mtandy (06/27/2013) [-]
Cheers.

And we call them jelly beans too, we just have jelly babies as well, though why someone wanted baby shaped food is a question for someone else.

Now I can understand all of these changes, but the quaver/eight note really bothers me, having studied music for a long time, it really takes the biscuit
User avatar #108 to #99 - derpwolf ONLINE (06/27/2013) [-]
We usually use the three terms "seeing-eye dog", guide dog, and service dog interchangeably. The reason for "seeing-eye dog" is because it sees in place of the blind owner. Guide dogs and service dogs are sometimes used for deaf people instead, and they can see, while seeing-eye dogs are used only for blind people.

Every dog has it's own personality, and most dogs adapt to the life of their leader which in this case seams to be you or another family member that also cuddles with your dog a lot... some dogs also take the adaption of smiling when they are happy, even tho showing their teeth is a way to show themselves fearful...

shortly speaking... dogs adapt and are all different.
User avatar #29 to #27 - lyiat ONLINE (06/27/2013) [-]
Exactly. There are plenty of humans that don't like hugs, cats that love water, ect ect. You can't make a statement like OP and apply it to all dogs. Some dogs will be very upset from hugging. Particularly dogs with police or safety training. Household dogs though... they may very well love it.

Never hug a dog you don't know, I suppose.

Last one: If it's understood and explainable, how is it then a phenomenon?

Phenomenon is just an occurrence, it doesn't have to be unexplainable.

You left out definition two, which is "a remarkable person or thing".

I didn't think it was overly relevant to the discussion. I also left out a bunch of links to various websites.
User avatar #154 to #148 - Noah (06/27/2013) [-]
I'm sorry
User avatar #14 to #13 - grimmapple (06/27/2013) [-]
what I got on Google. It said that is observed to happen, esp. one that is explainable. Especially, but not only. So I suppose you're correct.
