When I was younger, I had cocker/dachshund mix and a scottie mix, both had tails. NBD. Now that I am grown, I breed and show Australian Shepherds. You get used to not having tails. Dont have to worry about tails knocking things off tables, no "bam,bam,bam" on the hardwoods when they are happy. All in all, life is quiet with them.

So I had been thinking, that I wanted a "lap dog" so I got a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. What a tail! She smashes that thing on everything, in the morning if I move in bed, I can hear that tail smashing around... I guess I forgot about tails in the last 8 years!

Anyone else forget about tails somewhere along the way?
Thank you Jaidynsmum... for the lovely siggy!

I couldn't imagine having a dog with a docked tail. The *thump thump thump* I hear from my dogs always makes me smile. Butt wiggling just isn't the same

I've always owned Boxers, so no tail (and I disagree, watching them kidney bean and wag their nub is so adorable)...anyway, we adopted a German Shepherd last year and obviously he has a very large tail. He doesn't knock anything over or thump anything with it thankfully, but there were a few times when we first got him that I also smashed it in the sliding glass door just because I'm not used to all of that extra going out the door haha. Luckily never did though!

Hey Lynnii! Good to see you over here too!

As for me, I own German Shepherds, so I know all too well what you are talking about... Knocking things off the coffee table, whipping the back of your legs while wagging at you, knocking the kids down, etc. Good times! LOL

I have 3 springers and LOVE the docked tails. I'd be in trouble if the 3 of them had tails lol. My house would be wrecked. Not to mention they'd probably have torn their tails in the woods.

Thank you jaidynsmum for my siggy!

we have a rottie with a docked tail....i do like it though----no worries about the tail wacking the baby but sometimes i do miss seeing the tail wag! it's just his little stump nubbing back & forth.

my brother has a wonderful pit/greyhound mix that has a tail like a whip. i love the dog---just hate the tail when my baby is around.

I've got a rott so no tails. My aunt actually had a rott with a tail. Looks cool and unique haha. They look friendly with a tail.

Our dog has a tail injury from his old owner. There is a knob on the end and that b-atch HURTS!!! He whacks the crap out of you when he gets excited. Luckily our littlest has low muscle tone so the hard impact makes him giggle instead of hurting him..
