Don’t be confused for even a second, I found out the hard way – this little bitch is vicious … sure she’ll pose for a photo and looks docile enough, but DO NOT try and stroke her, she nearly bit my hand off !
Reminds me of a few women I know actually, but that’s another story …
I think she’s a Cocker Spaniel, although I’m not a dog expert, so if you’re one then do correct me ! (A dog expert not a cocker spaniel obviously)

She’s distemper psychopath (psychological). She’ okay, you’re not okay. Also, probably spade, since she should have taken to you as a male, unless you’re gay. Dogs know these things. She appears to be flat affect meaning she’s not emotionally mature. she was probably weened too early from her mother and raised on manufactured food. Let her come to you. She may be territorial. You invaded her space. Adult dog only, unless she was protecting someone. Just saying.
Thanks, useful info 😀
That is the weirdest looking dog ever – looks like a basset hound/blood hound/cocker spaniel cross. Yikes. Thanks for the laugh!
You are welcome, makes the day go quicker 🙂
although everbody is discussing the dog I’am wondering were you took this picture. The place looks fammiliar so maybe I have been there as well during my trip in Thailand, or every single beach looks the same over there, can be the case as well haha
🙂 it’s close to where I stay, and I don’t usually give out location details, for my own security …
Aww… She’s really cute, does she really bite? (I meant the dog not the women in your life… :))
Well she didn’t actually bite me only threatened to …
The women in your life bite? I wonder if they are vampires!
Some of them have been, I usually drop those ones …
Obviously, like humans, all dogs are individual, but my old golden cocker was a joy, never vicious, unless you were another dog!!!! 😉
Could be menopausal. I’ve been known to react that way sometimes. 😉
Dont let the cuteness fool you. 😉
Absolutely … charm can be only a thin veneer covering 🙂
Old Cockers are usually quite nasty. I say this because all old Spaniels I have met were nasty (warned by the owners, I never touched any). Don’t know why, if pain or something in their brain switches on with age? Springer Spaniels on the other hand… I had one, and I never saw such a loving, patient dog, they only time I saw him mad was when he stepped between me (age 8) and a German Shephard that was about to murder me. I miss him so.
We used to have a cocker when I was a kind and she was good natured enough, but defensive if provoked. Old dogs and dogs that live a relatively feral existence have to be wary of humans as they could cause harm or pain. Best thing I think is just bit wary oneself. And yes some dogs love their owners, as you’ve proven … warm regards DC
she looks old–maybe senile and grumpy?
i’ve only experienced really grumpy old queens, cats that is. so i’m extrapolating
Yes, I think you’re right, plus it’s hot for her thick coat and I reckon dogs may face ill treatment here in Thailand … Cats and dogs tend to be a bit wary of people here …
There has to be some hound in that dog – blood hound?
It’s a mystery Nav, but yes few people have said that 🙂
Look so cute though. 🙂
LOL, don’t let her demeanour fool you, she’s a tiger for sure if “provoked” !
Looks like a mixed Spaniel and Basset Hound. Spaniels are little nippers. Get her a big chew bone, preferably not one attached to your arm or leg. 🙂
And, thanks for following my blog.
You are welcome … are you a warrior princess ?
And yes she could easily be a mixture, I don’t know … When I find the pet shop I’ll look for something for her to eat, that would probably have yielded a more friendly response in the first place …
Good afternoon Doncharisma. No, I’m not a warrior princess. Only Lucy Loveless has that title. 🙂
Ah, ok, I did wonder from your gravatar name 🙂
Step away from the ladies!
lol. I laughed through this whole post. Especially when you said you know some women like that
LOL, good to have brought some humour 🙂
You always do Don! 🙂
You have more to learn Don, how to act with the animals. Then you can have the sunset with the cats too. It looks like a mix of Cocker + something unknown. Nice dog.
Sure, I get that Irene … one day I’ll be the sunset animal photographer extraordinaire 🙂
I’m looking forward to see the results of that 😀
🙂 I love Peter Sellers !
I had 2 cocker spaniels- they can be temperamental, but also very loving. One of mine actually bit me when I pulled him in a way he didn’t want to be pulled. Learned after that, and having to get a tetanus shot!! Just have to approach them with caution.She happens to be a beauty!!
I had a cocker spaniel when I was a kid … she was generally good natured but would snap or attempt to snap if she was annoyed … But I think my dog and this one probably a defensive rather than agressive action, so not a big deal … there are other dogs here I’ve seen that are aggressive for “no reason”, my approach with this is to stand tall, and gradually walk off, being prepared to defend myself if I need to.
scary when it is aggressive as you say, rather than defensive. best wary I suppose!
Yes I think wary is best option … the peter sellers video someone else posted in my comments is quite funny even up to the bit about the dog, well worth a watch 🙂
hmm, the cocker spaniels I’ve met don’t usually have such long faces. hmmm … she may be a cross between cocker spaniel (the world’s friendliest dog) and a basset hound/a bloodhound? 🙂
Could be difficult as a layman to know really … There’s also one of those HUGE swiss rescue dogs, St Bernard ? that lives close by … very hot for these European dogs with thick coats !
I’ve always wondered how dogs bred for colder climes survive as pets in countries with hot climes …
I have a cousin who lives in Singapore and keeps a Sheltie. that’s a lot of coat for a tropical country! I’d imagine she keeps it indoors in air-conditioned rooms most of the time. 🙂
Yes, but I reckon most dogs get over hot here, they seem to spend most of the day sleeping and more active at night … So I guess it’s possible … The Sheltie I’m assuming has long thick fur ?
very thick. 🙂 I always think of it as a mini-Collie 🙂
Like a dulux dog ?
haha, but no …
‘Shelties’ are Shetland sheepdogs.
OK, so thick enough to be very hot then !
excruciatingly. I have a feeling lots of sleeping, panting, and drinking are requisites for Shelties in the tropics. 🙂
Maybe even some clippers like they do with the sheep, but not sure how dogs feel about that !
they probably would like it for the outer coat, but there’s no guarantee that the fur will grow back exactly as it was. (speaking from second-hand experience!)
especially if the undercoat should get part of the shaving treatment, too! 🙂
Ah so it doesn’t work the same as with sheep … I know they shave poodles in all kind of odd way …
yes … those poor things 🙂 I prefer the unshaven poodle look. 🙂
Me too !
Oh dear! 😉
Your comment at the end about dog expert and not an actual dog really cracked me up 🙂 I’m not a dog expert myself, but it seems old to me, maybe that’s why it’s grumpy?
I reckon that’s a big factor, plus she has thick fur and it’s very hot here … often I see dogs sleeping all day, because it’s just too hot for them … they tend to “roam” at night …
LMAO! Great Title Sir!
Had me wondering —‘hey – what??’ – thirsty for drama and gossip us lot!! OH dear
Is she maybe a golden spaniel (looks a little but not quite)
Leave it at some sorta spaniel ey 😉
Trying out a bit of the Daily Mail journalist … if you can’t beat ’em !
And I’m no dog expert but yes spaniel was what came to mind …
Yeah – it is the way it is at times hey 😉 Must dash (so far behind EVERYTHING!) Must chin wag sometime soon (Not today – LONG BUSY AND GERMY day :/)
OK hun, when you have time 🙂
yeah, ppl are like this, too. they turn on you, like evil spirits.
ugh; now you know why i stay a hermit. lol…trust no one, m’dear! 🙂
Certainly added a new level of cautiousness when dealing with dogs … and yes I’m inclined toward the don’t trust anyone thinking, however there are some that are OK, happy when I find them … keepers 🙂
Sounds to me like she’s a good judge of character. 😉 Haha. How could anyone/thing not enjoy you, Mr. Charisma?
Lessoned learnt in her defence I think she’s old, it’s hot and she a thick coat and I think dogs often face bad treatment here in Thailand … so can be explained …
Hey, A little friendly advice about dogs. In general, never walk up to a strange dog and try to pet it; especially in a foreign country. Always ask before you pet a dog. This dog looks old and may have painful joints. This color of Spaniel is known for its not so friendly demeanor.
Hey, thanks that’s useful, and I certainly am usually wary of dogs, I’ve had “situations” before. What caught me off guard was that she looked so docile and friendly. But I reckon dogs probably face a lot of ill treatment here in Thailand, plus it’s hot, plus she’s old, so probably should have known better … A lesson learned anyway 🙂
you are welcome! Safe travels.
Maybe the “little bitch”, needs a “little bastard”
Entirely hadn’t thought of that angle 🙂
Had to check this one out with that title…..come on don´t call her that, she is cute and probably not as smart as some women you´ve been. Or at least I hope.
LOL, just don’t try stroking her Charly, she’ll bite you hand off … and she’s probably more intelligent, but as I say that’s another story 🙂
