    Merlin doesn't wake up every two hours in the night (except when he has diarrhea)
    He doesn't eat or roll in poo
    He doesn't bite us
    He doesn't pull on the lead
    He doesn't bark at people

    However - he WILL NOT sleep later than 5:00 am...

    Lucky doesn't bark when he's alone, try to lunge at strangers (mostly...), always lunge towards other dogs, chew the rugs or sofas, say hello to non-dog owners on walks, bite me, steal slippers, or run away as often!

    He does eat human poo, finds it difficult to walk nicely past other dogs sometimes, jumps on people when he's excited, and is still very stubborn.

    Bailey does not lick the new baby-much:D He sits and stares at Ollie-cocking his head one way then the other-which he does when he is confused and trying to figure out just what the heck that is. He is alarmed- to say the least- when Ollie cries but he doesn't lick!

    It is a lot easier to say what Cooper does wrong, because she does almost everything right. She wants to be close to us, but does not complain if we leave her alone. She is almost always engaged with us. She is friendly to other dogs and people, and will share food with Tilly, and other dogs for that matter. She seems to understand that small kids and frail older folks need gentle treatment. Her recall is great, even when she is distracted. She does not chew on our stuff anymore. I could say all of the same things about Tilly, though her recall is not as good and she is not quite as engaged. Of course she is 11+ now.

    I'm beginning to feel very inadequate here with all these very good dogs. Have been searching my thoughts for something to say about Molly.
    Still thinking, but she's adorable anyway, never has been that naughty :D

    Harley doesn't :

    • chew any of our things (even though she likes to steal socks and shoes)
    • Wake us up in the night unless she's poorly (and she sleeps in until at least 8am)
    • Run off on a walk

    Ha ha - having posted this, Coco has got me up "early" for the past 3 days - poking his nose into my back with a tiny whine - any time between 3:30 & 5:30 - so I have to get up & let him out in case he needs a wee or a poo. This morning, he chased a blackbird!

    In that case, I'll keep quiet here about Luna not needing to go out overnight the last couple of nights ;)

    Excellent idea, thank you. I just hope, like Boogie's picture shows, I'm not jinxing anything :rofl:

    This thread is a lovely idea. And I am a proud mommy of a labrador that is very good pup.
    The things I am most grateful for that Harley doesn't do are:
    Counter surf
    Destructively chew
    Chase or stress the cats
    Bark in the yard
    Get into the rubbish bins
    Gulp her food
    Jump on the furniture (she is allowed on the bed)
    Swim in the pool
    Do her own landscaping
    Whimper or whine at the door or jump up against the doors and scratch them

    She really is a good girl.

    Beau doesn't counter surf, dig in the garden, get into the bins. He doesn't have separation anxiety. He walks nicely past people (most of the time!). He is good around horses and all types of farm animal. He's a loving, friendly, happy-go-lucky free spirit. He loves life and grabs it by the horns, and makes me laugh every day :)
